WASHINGTON, July 29. (By . the
Associated Press.) France and Great
Britain, according to information last
night from an authoritative source,
have Concluded an agreement con
cerning oil companies designed to se
cure international co-operation and to
eliminate competition which might
give rise to friction between them.
Provisions of the agreement, it is
understood, extend to all countries
where oil interests of the two nations
can be usefully united or might be in
conflict. It deals specifically with the
French and British crown colonies and
provides co-operation in connection
with commercial concessions to de
velop oil wells in Roumania, Asia
Minor, Galicia and the territories of
the old Russian empire. There is a
proviso permitting extension to other
countries by mutual consent.
In connection with commercial con
cessions in Roumania, the govern
ments agree not to compete but to
enter, into common negotiations when
their nationals desire to obtain oil
rights there. They also agree that in
connection with oil concessions and
shares belonging to former enemy
subjects or bodies in Roumania and
sequestrated by the Roumanian gov
ernment, they yll support their re
spective nationals in .common negotia
tions entered into with the govern
ment of Roumania for acquisition 'of
Exploitation In Arranged.
Shares and interests belonging to
former enemy companies and corpor
ations that can be secured by such
joint action will be divided 50 per cent
each to British and French interests.
In companies formed to undertake
exploitation of these concessions, na
tionals of the two countries will have
equal voting power as well as equal
portions of the capital subscribed and
equal representation on the executive
The governments also agree to sup
port their respective nationals in any
effort they may" make to obtain com
mercial petroleum concessions and ex
port facilities in Russia and in any
territory which, as the result of the
war, may have been detached from
As to Mesopotamia, the agreement
provides if the oil fields there are
developed by Great Britain the Brit
ish undertake to see that France or
its nominees will receive 25 per cent
of the net output of crude oil at cur
rent prices. Should a Franco-British
commercial company or corporation
be used to develop the oil fields it is
agreed that, while the control will be
British, a share of 25 per cent in such
a company will be placed at the diS'
posal of the French government.
IVatlve Rights Protected.
Further, the British government un
dertakes that any British company
which may be projected to develop oi
wells in Mesopotamia shall place 25
per cent of its shares at the disposal
of the French government at a price
not higher, than that paid by other
participators in the formation of the
company, To safeguard interests of
the natives in Mesopotamia, the two
governments agree that native inter
ests shall be entitled to and may if
they so desire participate to the ex
tent of 20 per cent of the share capital.
Before the war rights of develop
ment of Mesopotamia oil fields were
held by the Turkish Petroleum com
pany under concessions from Turkey.
The British and French governments
have agreed, as part payment .of repa
ration, to assign to France the Ger
man shares of the company, which
thus becomes an Anglo-French cor
According to Information here, the J
agreement does not affect interests of
other governments or of their nation
als and it reserves no exclusive rights
to France or to Great Britain, not even
in Mesopotamia. Its effect, it is said,
is merely to guarantee to France a
share in the output of Mesopotamian
oils at ordinary commercial prices and
to permit France and Great Britain
to share on fair terms oil at the dis
posal of either. ,
Foil Reciprocity Aim.
The agreement extends on similar
lines to the French, colonies and the
British crown colonies. Any Franco-
British group of good standing, it is
explained, will be given facilities sub
ject to the new guarantees, for the
acquisition of oil concessions in the
French colonies and protectorates and
zones of influence.
It is necessary, under French law,
that groups so formed contain French
interests of at least 67 per cent.
French subjects wishing to prospect
and exploit petroleum lands in Brit
ish colonies would be given advan
tages under the agreement similar to
those enjoyed by British subjects in
the French colonies.
Prizes Amounting to $1500 Award
ed to Winners of Various Con
tests During Day.
Practically every groceryman in the
city closed up shop Wednesday and
went on a pilgrimage to Bonneville,
the occasion being the 20th annual
picnic of the Portland Grocers" &
Merchants' association. The picnic
feast that was spread under the trees
was perfection, as the experienced
caterers in the organization had un
limited supplies of dainties and deli
cacies to draw upon.
The day was not entirely given over
to feasting for the events of a lengthy
programme were interspersed between
periods of eating. Dancing, band con
certs and sports of all kinds were the
features provided for the excursion
ists and keen competition was shown
in a baseball game between the sales
men s team and the grocer s team
which resulted in a score of 6 to 0
favoring the salesmen.
The three-legged race was presented
with a slight variation, for in place
of two men each couple consisted of
a man and woman. Great hilarity re
sulted from this race. Prizes amount
ing to more than $1500 were awarded
winners of the various contests.
Two trains and hundreds of auto
mobiles carried the merry crowd
which was estimated at between 3000
and 4000. Mr. Norton, secretary of the
association, declared it to be the most
successful holiday in the history of

The entire plant of the Aico Wood
Products company here was destroyed
by fire last night, causing a loss of
between 55,00 and $60,000. The in
surance is $25,000.
The plant was one of Albany's lead
ing industries. The fire started short
ly after 7 o'clock. Xhe building was
filled with inflammable material and
the fire spread so rapidly that there
was no chance to save the plant. It
is believed that a barrel of oil ex
ploded soon after the blaze started,
throwing the flames all over the
building. The firemen saved some of
the lumber in the yards.
The building: was owned by C. C.
Cameron and his loss is estimated at
$10,000. Mr. Cameron is out of town
and no statement of his insurance

chinery, equipment and stock were
owned by the Alco Wood Products
company, a local corporation. Its loss
is between $45,000 and $50,000 and it
