He must visit court rooms which are almost always dis- Rustinsr with rum. and tobacco. He must expose elf at the tire. He must write in fcetid alley-ways. Added to all that he must have hHaty mastication and irregular habits. To bear up under this tremendous nervous they are tempted to artii'cial and how many thousands have Ejone down under that pressure God only knows. They must have something to counteract the they mnst have something to keep out the aud after a scant night's sleep they must have something to revive them for tfie morning's work. This is what made Horace Greeley such a stout temperance man.

THE TRADE HAS A REST FOR A DAY. on the Small TFeUn Opened Up at Something About tbe Composition of the Butler is Coins on About Uttle Washington. KANE. Saturday in the field was an exception- ally quiet day. Outside of the -wildcatter there is little or nothing doing. The Associated Producers' Co. No. 3 did not get enough gas to flow it. Like No. 1 it will probably when tnbed. _ Finagan Monroe's No. 500 feet east of C. C. No. is in the sand. When the first bit was run it showed a little oil. Upon running the second it filled up uioeiy. It will make a small well.. Kane Oil Co.'s No. on lot is through the sand with not a very good showing. It will make a small producer. No. 8 ought to get the sand to-morrow. Murphy's old rig was from the old hole to its present it being so old and weather-worn that the joints com- menced to crack. The bull wheel gave way under the pressure and taking it to the top of the derrick ib made a complete wreck oi' the whole leaving tlia tools and rope in tbe throwing the bull wheel up near the engine and tearing down the heir the driller narrowly escaping with his life. The Union Oil Co.'s Nos. 12 and on lot are due to strike the sand to-day. The Kaae Oil are spudding ou their No. 1. They are ringing up on No. 2 and have a rig in course of construction on the north-vest corner ot their 25 acres on lot 4-20. R. B. Stone are spudding their wildcat on their 100 on south-east corner of lot 379. J. Griffith's No. 3 with pos- sible t-ood got the sand to-dny. They have started No. 4. The Western Oil me building a rig on 330. Geo. Howe has two rigs under way on the south-east corner of 335. Tbe Union Oil have two rigs up on the east side of 419. Andrews keeps picking away at both of his wells with no improvement. There is no change in the Swain i-c Clin- ton well ou lot 345. WASHINGTON. The People's Light Heat Co. have commenced drilling on the Morgan northeast or' the County Home. Tbe cups at the Gantz are badly cut and the rods will he pulled to make repairs. Tho well has been doing the past few days about 20 bnrrels per day. The MciCinney Robbina on the J. D. Glenn is down feet. The lost bit baa been recovered from the Pexv on the Fifiy-eiaht barrels of oil have been saved at the Hayes well sinca Wednesday by bailing. Tho well is drilling in the slate between the Gautz snd fifty-foot rock. The tubing and rods have been pulled at the McKeever Co. in order to pat on new which were badly woru. Pumping will bo resumed to-day. The Manifold is just a month oid and has produced iu that time about bar- rels of oil. The People's Light Heat Co. 'a on the Taylor is down feet with considerable salt water iu the hole. The same company still have a fishing job at Farley No. '2. The gauge of the Smith 1 this morn- ing was 409 137. The Thayer No. 1 and the Miller Gufley wero not gauged. The Smith Xo. 2 has moved hack the boiler beyond the danger line and rande connections that in case of a strike of oil the owners will be prepared to save it. The drill wa3 at work nyain this morning iu the Ganlz where a considerable vein of gas was got some days since. The Gordon No. does not appear to have been greatly improved by the sbofc it was given a day or two having made no flow. As soon as cleaned ont she will be pumped. The Fisher on the 'Squire Par-sell farm at is down over 300 feet. This is a genuine wildcat. An oil company at Washington is mak- ing au effort to lease land on Little Pike or Gorby'a near Coal Centre. If the company is successful in leasing about 300 acres a test well will be put down. Two surveys have recently been made near Dunsfort from the McGngin gas well to Martin's with a view of locating a route for a pipe line from the former to the latter place. The company has contracted to have the line completed by the first of Jane. HUTLKR. In view of the results of recent operations at Reibold it appears as if there were two field down divided by the creek. South of the creek the sand in the wells drilled is while north of the creek the sand is black. South of the creek the best well is the Painter which is farthest south. Going north to the creek the sand narrows nnd if not alto- plays ont at the creok. Tho eamo is noticeable on the northside of the creek. Commencing at tho water there is but a very light deposit of aud tho wells improve as they go north. The best well is the old which is furthest aud it is possible that a belt run- ning parallel with Thorn northwest by may be found. Heretofore operations have been between the McJunkin and Painter but here- after operations will be north of tbe for- mer and south of the latter well. Although no new wells may be from the character of the saud north of the creek those that are found will certainly be stayers. Tbe new oil Gelds of in the Bingham are directly south of Bil- lincs. near the boundary be- tween Montana and Wyoming. Tbey are eighty miles locg by forty wide. The oiT is said to contain forty per of mineral sperm twenty-seven per kero- with small percentages 01 benzine and naptha. I la illuminating nower is of a higu order and it is so pure that ranchmen in the vicinity have been burning it this winter in their lamps. SMALL SHOTS.

ATTITUDE OF THE STKIKE. TulUed ol the tenders.

She Jailed to down her game. The woxnau claims that Hogan visited her house and grossly insulted her aud she re- solved to kill him. The strikers induced another man to leave the shops yesterday. There basbeeu no violence and everything was quiet last night. It iseuid that a vigilance committee has been formed in this cil.v to w administer the laws in Judge Lynch fash- ion.

Mr. chairman the Committee ou Indian will make an effort to pass this bill as soon as the Senate disposes of the fisheries which Mr. Prey 'will ask to bo brought up immediately after the morning business to-morrow.
