"COAL OIL JOHNNY."
HMt Ecceotrlo of All Men Who Cot Qlofc
(Jalekljr ia the Oil Regions.
The wealth of Mr. Steele, better
known as "Coal Oil Johnny," has un
doubtedly been overrated that is to
Bay, hia wealth in cash. At the tame t
the Pittsburg sanitary commisHion
made an offer to donate a soldier's
monument to the county making the
largest contribution, the producers
of this section agreed to set aside for
th?t purpose the proceeds from their
Js for one day. Mr. Steele' s con
tribution for that day was $2,500,
which was a fair gauge of what bis
wells were doing.
The farm and the conjunctive inter
ests bequeathed to him by his grand
mother he probably could Lave dis
posed of for $500,000 or more when
the eame came into his possession,
but it is doubtful if at any time he
possessed more than' $100, 000 in cash.
His expensive eccentricities were
many, but did not include, as often
reported, the purchasing and giving
away of a hotel in Philadelphia. The
6tory probably grew out of the fact
that while in. Philadelphia at one
time he experienced some difficulty
in securing a hack and finally bought
one outright; that when he got
through with the rig the driver
asked him what to do with it and he
told him to keep it. It was on that
trip to Philadelphia that he, while
with Slocum, the fellow who was
"showing him the world," attracted
so much attention by going about
with bills of various denominations
tied in the buttonholes of his cloth
ingby making small purchases
with good sized bills; taking no
change back, and even lighting cigars
with his money.
Another of his eccentricities on
that trip was the forming of a negro
minstrel troop at rnTvlt j, for each
of the members of w hich he bought
a suit of, clothes when he engaged
him. He brought his troop here,
and that was about all he did with it
The details of his doings in Phila
delphia, New York, Saratoga and
elsewhere, including his experiences
with sharpers, notably his $10,000 ac
quaintance with John Morrissey,
have been written threadbare.
Summed up briefly the main points
in his life are these: When quito
young he became an orphan and was
adopted by his grandparents, Mr.
and Mrs. William McClintock. He
was married two or three years be
fore he became of age and worked at
farm work until the oil excitement
began. ' He then engaged in hauling
oil down Oil creek and hauling coal
back with a pair of old plugs. The , .
result was tie possession of a good ,
team of hi3 own. The McClmtock
farm became one of the most vah ,
able along Oil creek. Mrs. McQhv
tock survived her husband severlf v
years, and when she died, in fsfctf'!
the adopted son, Steele, became tHe1
sole heir to her property,!'
He soon concluded to.eeso(me of
the world with his weaj&,'and he
saw it. He sought notpuety and he
got it He spent his money like a
man with Monte Cristo backing
was bled by leeches, fleeced by sharp

At one time when he was highest

kindly expostulated with him on the
point that he ought to save some of
his money. He thanked them for .
their friendly advice, but said that he
had made a living by hauling oil und
could do it again if necessary. He
couldn't rest until he had spent that
fortune. Ultimately he got the re
A cousin of Mr. Steele maintains
that the estimates which have been
put upon Steele's wealth have not, as
a general thing, been exaggerated.
He says that he personally knows
that when Mrs. McClintock died
Steele inherited $125,000 in gold and
about $100,000 in other money. The
income from his wells then was from
$1,000 to $2,000 a day. The cousin
says that from his knowledge, of
Steele's affairs he should say that at ,
one time "Coal Oil Johnny"' could
have produced $1,000,000 in cash,
