Ticket Going Faat
The Klamath Falls boxing commis
sion met laat night and aet the seal
of their approval upon the local box
ing contest for July 4 and C, as far
as arrangements have gone. The com
mission organized by selecting Fred
Soule, chairman and Dr. H. D. L.
Stewart, secretary. The other mem
bers are K. Sugarman, Fred Houston
and O. M. Hector.
The matter of securing a referee
waa the moat important element of
discussion. Several men were men

to waver between Roy Taber of Dor
rls and Tom Watters, It appeared to
the commission, and an effort will be
made to secure one or tho other.
Matchmaker McDonald reported
that the arena' had been equipped
with bleacher seats and would prob
ably, accommodate 2300 spectators.
,Tiere was a big advance sale of tick

Lehman, manager of the Crater Oil and Oss company and Northern
California Oil company, a trained' geologist, will tall, In language
the layman can understand, his reasons for belief that oil underlie
Klamath county. The serif will ba an Interesting and Instructive
history of .petroleum and the petroleum Industry, which all who'
desire to be well Informed abould read.)
BY W. C. LEHMAN
In the preceding article waa dis
cussed those controlling factors of
oil accumulation that have to do
with the source of supply and tho
medium of storage. To discover
oil la not enough; our lntereet la an
economic one and oil most be found
In commercial pools. We must, there
fore, find It place of concentration
and accumulation.
Attention may, first of all, ba
called to the fact that all great oil
field In the United Btatee turn been
developed along tha flanka of great
lines of uplift. For many year It
waa not understood why oil field
In this country Invariably extended
north and south and northeasterly
and southwesterly. It Is now recog
nised that the fields-follow the di
rection of the line of uplift These
lines of 'uplift, generally mountain
ranges, extend in no other direction
on this continent. The great uplift
are called ge-anticllnee. their accom
panying depressions are called geo
aynellne. The crest of the great
geanticlines represent lines of struc
tural weaknese within tha disturbed
one to which lateral pressure wsa
spplled. Thl lateral pressure waa
Induced by earth movement, tha re
sult probably of the contraction of
tha earth' outer cms t.due to inter
nal cooling. On either side, gen
erally .of these tinea of atractaral
waakaaaa were secondary Has of
weakness. When lateral pressure
waa exerted the primary 1M
weaknese baeame the mouatajn
weakness beeame aafawr'telda upon
the flanks . of the great g-aaU
cllnee.
Sine there la no almlUrity In tha
reelatanc of the different kind of
stratified formation these minor
fold assume various shapes. A mi
hor fold that has relatively great
length In comparison with its width
Is called an anticline. An anticline
that dlpa In all directions from one
central point la called a dome. An
arrested or broken off anticline Is
called a terrace. These, with, their
variations, are the principal forma
of oil protuclng structure.
In our previous discussion we fol
lowed oil In Its migration from the
shale to a porous formation, such as
sand or sandstone. A new force
now appear oa tha scene that
greatly influence oil accumulation.
This Is water, either fresh or salt
Very little, if any, of the earth's
surface but what Is underlaid by
water at varloua depths. It has been
estmlated that were all the water
of the earth pressed out it would
form a sheet 100 feet or more thick
over all land surface.
When water I present in tho
medium o'f oil accumulation the oil
will be found on the aide of the
structure with gas at its apex
Should water ba absent from the
medium of accumulation then oil,
If present will be found in the
aynellne. '
Oss, oil, and water, arrange
themselves within structure in ac
cordance with their specific gravl
ties. For many year it was pre
sumed that the force of gravity was
the sole controlling agent in this
segregratlon. At the present time
extensive experiment are being
made by the United States govern'
ment, under the direction of the
Bureau of Mines, in ,the attempt to
demonstrate to Just what extent
other fore, aa well aa gravity,
have In making theaa divisions. It
la very probable that capillarity ho
been a more potent factor then
gravity. Thl question, however, ia
'academic, the decision of which does
not change la any way tha fact that
gas, oil, and water exist in the sta
ted order within oil producing struc
tures. Sine 60 per cant, or more,
of all the oil la the'Unlted States Is
produced from wells drilled upon
structure; that is, wells drilled upon
soma flexed or folded stratified for.
mation, it I very apparent that oil
accumulations are principally loca
ted wlthla tone of- disturbance.

that within these xones faulting
must occur, to a large degree.
A fault is a plane of rupture gen
erally due to some earth movement,
and frequently a dislocation upward
or downward occurs. Sometimes
only a few Inches and sometimes
many hundreds of feat. Many ter
race atructures are formed by fault
lag, the upthrow of-the fault act
ing as the creet of the anticline.
Faulting I sometimes favorable
to oil concentration because the fault
plane' acta as a sealing barrier to
prevent oil escape. It may have the
opposite Influence and permit Its
further migration. 8hould tbe sink.
ing of, one of the sides of the plane
of rupture bring a porous formation
to a level corresponding with the
oil storage medium it will ba read
ily seen that the oil will escape,
providing the porous formation has
a surface outcrop; outcrop being
that place at which a stratified for
mation reaches the surface la its up
ward dip. The exception may
be Jioled, that oil eometlmee oc
cur elsewhere than ia strat-
UUsd deformation. It ia very
occasionally found in sandstone
lenses. .These sandstone lenses are
little Islands of sand of varying
thicknesses that are found in tbe
earth totally surrounded by raedl
uata not permeable by oil. There Is
no of tuelr urfat aatlma
tie: It la best to ignore the poeal
HIMy of oil in lenticular sonde ia
any etudy of Petroleum Geology,
neeeptlag such occurence as happy
aeeJieats. Nathmc may ba dlsewv
areeY eth sarin) ta.'ssdissts thsto
presence.
The net vital point for considera
tion In reference to oil accumulation
1 what is known as the critical wa
ter altitude. This Is the height to
hlch. without Interference, water
will rise to In any structure. Of
course, It water be absent from the
structure and the oil be found In
the synellnes this question Is of no
Importance. However, the wlt'.r
wonld estimate 85 per cent aa the
approximate proportion of earth do
formatlona that have water la mod
lums of probable oil storage. The
Klamath Basin Is aa example 'n
point. There can be no question
of water being contained at aomo
altitude in all medium that may
also contain oil, therefore, the oil
accumulation here, It present, will
be foua'd near tbe apex of the struc
tural deformation la which it oc
curs. Tbe net matter for consideration Is
tho other substance that occurs with
water and oil, namely, gas. Various
oils produce various ampunts of gas.
In some regions the oil Is held down
against the water by gas pressure to
such a degree that the oil becomes
highly Impregnated with gas and It ia
the escape of this gas from Its Ira
prisonment that produces gushers.
In the locatlonof oil accumulation
it is best therefore, not to drill too
close to the apex of any atrutcure un
less a gaa well is desired and not an
oil well.
We may add, therefore, to the list
of controlling factors of oil accumu
lation treated In the preceding article
the follewing:
(a)There must exist some structur
al deformation of a stratified oil
storage medium.
(b) It the structure contains water
tho oil accumulation will exist on
the sidae of the structure near the
top. .
(o) If gas be present wlthtn the
structure, oil concentration will not
occur within the crest or apex ot the
structure.
Tomorrow will be described the
general practice, manner and various
methods ot drilling for oil.

MSS BIN HIS
NARROW LEAD
OF 1 10 VOTES
Tha ballot boxes In the Goddess of
Liberty contest were opened this
morning at 11 o'clock and after the
totals were compiled, It wo found
that Miss McClaln was for today, sup
planted aa leader, Miss Bleha again
leading by the narrow margin of ltO
Toteat
The vote cast in the lost two days
has been very light owlug to plans
made by supporters of the respective
candidates .to launch. a volume of
votes during tbe last few days of tha
contest when the blackboard will
show hourly tha advance or recession
ot each candidate. During tha clos
ing hour of the contest. June, 26th,
the scenes nbont tbe vetlng bostt.atl
Sixth and Mala street will resemble,
it is said, tha "curb market" la little
old New York or Chicago during a
"bearish or fculUafc'! drfrv ttw
grain market. ' . . . i
When the board showa that a cer
tain candidate has advanced over her
nearest rival for the honor, "groups"
will at once endeavor to secure "op
tions" to again place their favorite
back In first place. There will be
more excitement In the lost four
hours of the contest than any Jacob
Letter wheat drive ever staged, for
tho lntereet ie local among the popu
lar young ladle of this city.
There was one item in the count
today that surprised the Judges,
"Miss Mabel Sparks' " vota.remained
stationary, not even one lonely vote
betng cast for this contender.
The friends of the candidate who
have lesa than 1000 votes must place
the number of ' votes to their favor
ites' credit before June 26th, In order
final race on June 30th. Candidates
having lesa than 1000 votes will be
eliminated. Aa hours' work by any
candidate or her friends will place
her name up In the front ranks.
Surprises are in store for the pub
lic in a tew days when the respec
tive candidates are to have floods ot
votes turned loose by admiring
friends and tbe rush scenes about the
voting booth will be something absol
utely new In this city.
