THE MORNING ASTORIAN, ASTORIA, OREGON,
M OIL AND GAS
Right at t lie Moutti of the Columbia River
That OIL and natural GAS have been discovered in paying quantities across the Columbia River from Astoria at Onieda,
Washington, lhas been important enough to a number of well-known reliable parties to cause the organization of the Pacific
Coast Gas & Oil Co., with a capital stock of $300,000. This company has just placed a number of shares of stock on the market
at the low price of $50.00 per share. READ ON-

the bcit of it ability and produce
paying mine of oil and gaa that, all
who have purchated atock may share
in id profit!. The officers serve with
out laliry and include among them
sonic of the moit reputable citizen
of the State. To make the company
strong on account of its brilliant fu
ture it has secured leasee on over
6000 acres of land. It has obtained
tbe highest expert authority on the
geological formation of the land,
employed the strongest expert work
men to operate the drilling apparatus
and given such other evidence of good
faith to warrant any man making an
investment with them.

THIS famous oil property is located on the north bank of the Columbia; River directly opposite Astoria,
and right at the mouth of Deep River, at, Onieda, Washington, The derrick machinery and drilling
apparatus is on the ground at work daily, and open to the inspection of the public. Mr. John D. Magner
and Fred E. Carl, two of the most competent oil and gas drillers in the country are in charge ot tne work.
Go and see them drill in the ground. The location of the plant is right on John Nelson's place at Onie da
where he has farmed for the past 20 years. He has been using this gas 'for the past 6 years that this
company is now digging down for a plentiful supply. The gas is there because it has been put to practi.
cal heating and illuminating tests without a break. We want you to see the plant in operation. Look
over the exceptional facilities for handling the product, and then form your opinion of those who own
stock rn the company. Take the steamer Julia B. or the Gen'l Washington any morning from Astoria and
spend an hour at the plant and see it work. You can return in the morning or afternoon of the same day.
This visit will prove a revelation. There is nothing like it in the northwest. This drilling 'outfit is the
biggest and most up to date ever operated on the Pacific coast.
Stoctt for Sale
For Development Pur oses
The per value of the stock is $100
per share, but is now offered at one
half ($30) and it is worth it The
company has already sold a limited
amount of stock, equipped the prop
erty with the best working machinery
in the world and it has plans for a
great future. The money secured
from the sale of stock will be to push
the work. Every dolar will be used
to prepare for the best interest of the
company. As the drill goes down the
stock will surely rise. The price it ia
now offered at will only be a short
time. A 'good rule is to let oppor
tunity in when it knocks at the door.
For an investment there is nothing
more tangible, brighter or more surer
dvidend paying than this stock, par
ticularly at $50 per share. Don't wait
until it goes to par, but buy now. It
is really a chance that comes seldom.

Some friends asked the girl why

WASHINGTON, Jun U.-If
there's Ohe class of persons above
another who are looking forward with
eager impatient to the Chicago and
Denver convention's arid the selection
of the two party tickets, it's the cam
paign button makers. Despite the
fact that there is a brisk continuous
business in the manufacture of but
tons and badges for commercial and
patriotic conventions and the, like,
the man who is dependent for a Uv-
inb on his pin money only has a
real chance once in four years. Hence"
it is unconcealed impatience that the
campaign button men await the time
when they can start the manufacture
of the little tin and celluloid disks
bearing the miniature portraits of the
men who will be the principals in the
forthcomng Presidential campaign.
Of course, in these pre-convention
days there has been more or less of
a demand for Taft buttons, Bryan
buttons, Fairbanks buttons, Johnson
buttons, and buttons for each one of
the likely candidates, but the real de-

mand will start when the campaign
actually is on. And the men charged
with the important work will not be
long in supplying this demand. They
have been all ready and"waiting for
weeks; copyrights long since have
been secured on sample buttons and
badges containing every possible com
bination of candidates. All that re,
mains to be done now is to await the
final choice of the convention. Im
mediately this Is known, the rush will
begin, and within a week the entire
country will be flooded with tiny
likenesses of the respective nominees.
VICTORIA, B. C. June ll.-News
was brought from China by the
Tango Maru that the revolution in
Yunnan and South China Js becom
ing so serious that the Peking au
thorities have, issued orders to the
authorities of four provinces to as
semble armies to attack the rebels
who "organized a ' movement which
threatens to be the largest of its kind
since the Taipmg Rebellion.
Seldom has a worse case of "stage
fright" been witnessed in Congress
than that which marked the lasjt four
weeks of the session just closed. The
leaders felt that they ought to adopt
legislation on certain subjects as a
preparation to "going before the
COuntfY". but no sooner had thv
mapped out a certain line of action
than they were seared out of it by a
violent uprising Against their pro
posals in some part of the country or
from some influential class of citizens.
Particularly was this mi of tho cur.
rency question'. Every fresh plan that
was worked out to meet obiectinns
in one quarter called down on the
congressmen art avalanche of protest
from other directions. If some genius
could discover a line" of legislation
that would please everybody and
therefore displease1 nobodV. to he fol
