Oil has been struck In paying quan
tities by tho Northern Counties Oil
company, located 17 miles from Pe
trola In California 6n the Upper
Matola district, according to tbo
statoment raado today by Charles
Olacomlnl of Petrola, twbo Is hero,
for n visit with his daughter and
son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Tho nowspapor reports, according
to Mr. Olacomlnl, bavo all designated.
Kuroka sg tbo scene of tho strike
but It Is only becauso tbo Northern
Counties Oil company havo their of
fices located thero, not their wells,
that tho credit Is given Eureka.
Mr. Olacomlnl statod that the well
would not bo drilled further nntll
retainers nnd steel tanks could be se
cured to tako care of tha oil which
was broken Into on August 2. Tho
officers of tbo company say that the
oil which they found will have a val
no ranging from $28 to $35 a barrel
nnd that the oil Is high test with par
afflno base.
Drilling was started on the proper
ty of E. J. Athera near Petrola on
May 1 and when the drill hit be
tween the COO and 600 foot .depth,
oil seepago was encountered. On
May 20, when tho drill was between
700 and 800 feot, trouble was ex
perienced and a rlmmer delayed drill
ing operations until casing was driv
en by It. From thero on until tho
1700 foot level was reached no oil
was found but blue shalo was pene
trated with oil evidences showing
plainer every day. Last wcok, when
1900 feet was drilled, oil seepago
became strong, and at 1930 feet, op
erations stopped as thn drillers sta
ted It was dangerous to proceed fur
tbor for it a heavy gushorwas found,
thero was no means to stem it. Pres
sure from gas waa so strong that or
ders woro Issued forbidding smoking
within a quarter of a mllo of tho rig.
Botwcen tho hours of 12 and 2 o'clock
last Tuesday morning, 30 gallons of
oil was socurod which showed tho
high gravity nndt tho parntfino baso
clearly. Just what lays beneath this
cnpplng will bo determined when tbo
company can save tho flow. As soon
as tho rctalnors and tanks aro placed
on tho ground, tho woll will bo prol
cd for a gusher which, tho officers
say, will bo a heavy ono. Judging
trdm tho tremendous gug pressure
Tho Northorn Counties Oil com
pany was Incorporated by F. M. Roy
nols for $150,000 and at tho tlmo
when the strlko was made, $60,000
In treasury stock was still unsold. A
rush by outsldors was mado to got
thlg stock but Prosldcnt Roynolds
and Treasuror W. F. Kinsman refus
ed to sell it and turnod it over for
disposal to the original purchasers
for additional buys at $1 per share
for 30 days. After that time, outsid
ers can socuro what Is left. Mr,
Olacomlnl stated that as all tho or
Igisal buyors wero taking tho balance
fast it waa doubtful If any stock
would fall into outsido possession,
Whllo tho exact flow has not b'ecn
cstlmatod at tha tlmo whon Mr.
Olacomlnl left homo still President
Roynolds told him that the present
strlko would be a good paying pro
position for tho Investors. The Hum
boldt Oil company are now drilling
on the old Qoutchler placo 5 mllea
out of Petrola and three other com
panies aro being organized to drill
on Davis" Creek, Capetown and Oil
Crook. Samples of the oil wero sont

All Barbers Agree
to Price Reduction;
Now Up to Union
Foarlng complications with' tbo
union should the proposed reduction
In tho price of shaves and halrtau
announced by tho Central barber
shop last wcok go Into effect today
without general ratification the em
ploying barbers held a mooting last
night and agreed upon a scale of re
ductions to bo nubmlttcd to the onion
this week. r r
The' union. It Is said, realizes that
thero Is a strong public demand for
the reduction and ban expressed will
ingness to meet the employers fair
ly. Tho now price scale Is the same a(
proposed by L. J. Bean, proprietor of
tho Central shop, with a. couple of
extensions. It reduces tho price of
shaves from 35 to 25 cents; haircuts
from 75 to 65 cents; plain shampoo
from 65 to 60 cents; Montecello mas
sago from $1.50 to $1.00, and shoe
shining from 20 16 15 cents.
"I have not receded from my posi
tion that prices must come down,"
said Mr. Bean today, "but I have no
desire to bo arbitrary. Employers and
employees who met last night agreed
that it the Central shop would delay
tho prico cut for a week, the matter
would bo adjusted without friction
and thero would be a general redac
tion to conform (with the prices I an
nounced hereafter to be chargejrtla
the Central shop.
"By waiting a week" ire avoid frlc
tloa"and the harmony that' lust' al
ways marked the employers' rela
tions with oach other and with the
union will not be disturbed and hav
ing every assurance that tho matter
would be satlffactorlnly adjusted In
a week, I believe it Is best to wait.
This may disappoint customers who
resd my announcement of the pro
posed price redaction but I believe
they will readily see tho Justlco of
my position.'
It was said today thst a special
meeting of the barbers union would
bo hold tonight to consider adjust
ment of existing contract. Represent
atives ot the union last night gave
assurance that employees would bear
their share in tho reduction.
No More Warnings
For Law Violators
"No arrests wero made by the of
ficers Saturday or Sunday tor vio
lations ot tho auto laws," stated Traf
fic Otflcor McLaughlin to a reported
today. "When tho people here slide
back Into their former carolessncm
and wo warn them .that a campaign
is coming on, all ot them fix up for
Inspection. So we will not glvo any
future warnings and will make "ar
rests any tlmo a violation exists. The
newspapers have been good to tho au
tolsts but telle them for tbe traf
fic department, "watch your auto
lights and do not speed."
Arranging to Pay
Shanahari Debts
A meeting of tho creditors ot
John and Ben Bbanahan was held
last week In tbe office ot Rutenlo &
Yaden, in -which J. J. Van Kuelen
ot Lakeview waa selected as trustee.
Bend was placed at $5,000, which
was secured by Van Kuelen Satur
day. '
The creditors decided to havo the
hay crop put up and the routine
work ot the property continued.
Tho receiver, W. W. Flnley, was as
sured that some $400, contracted by
him as expenses in this ca&e would
bo paid, and Investigation showed
that assets ot about $10,000 above
the secured debts were present 'upon
which no lien existed. About $18,
000 Indebtedness was listed with the
trustee by creditors. Other claims
aro still to be filed, and It appeared
from, tho present survey of tho as
sets that between 20 and 25 cents
will bo paid .on the dollar to creditors.

purser's records went down wth the

the lost Is thafir bodies are In the
morgue, leaving 30 missing, of which
at least 27 were passengers.
Many bodies were so covered with
oil that they had to be washed in
gasoline before they could be ldentl-
fled. Tho oil from the sinking ship
caused the death of many, as It sat
urated their clothing and they slip

tried to draw them from the water.
Captain Harry Hobey Is believed
to have gono down with the ship.
A dense fog.prevalled when the ves
