Oil men believe that New Mexico will be the scene of the next big oil boom. Geologists have figured that the deposits in Texas and Mexico back up in New Mexico and there has be#*n a great rush to obtain leases. The big companies have been quietly securing tracts for some months, but lately operators from every field have been pouring in and many wells will b*» started iii the next jew months.
Harry B. Glitches spent ten days; in New Mexico sizing up the sittia-! lion foi some Ada men. He secured 20,000 acres of leases near Portales, close to the Texas line. w h ere a geologist reported there w as a favorable structure. lf is planned to drill a deep test well at once. It is said that the stat# of New Mexico has offered $10,000 for the first good well brought in. Her citizens ha\** seen th#* many millions of dollars mad* in Texas during the past year and are #*ager to se#* N#*w Mexico developed Leases ale bringing good prices. Near th*- town o! Tiban, leas#*s sold for $1*' per acre on iii* mer* rumor of a drilling location. With active development land will doubtless sell at fancy figures.
Out* oi he encouraging signs of the times in Mexico today is the interest in physical education as manifested in the promotion of foot ball and t#*nnn: clubs throughout the couiil t y.
WASHINTON. May 3. Intimation that a special session of congress w ill He called by President Wilson to meet about june I is contained rn confidential dispatches received here today from Paris. It was said in authorative aduiinistra-jtive circles that it was quite pos-j sible that if the Paris situation t should develop rapidly the special I session might meet even before June I. In that case the calli would be bv cable.
The State Corporation Commission has handed down a ruling on th** alineation of the Ada Electric
6 (las Company by changing the rates, but denying any increase in revenue. Manager F. E. Bowman, after running through several pages of his ledger this morning, says he thinks the new ruling will result in less instead of more revenue.
The n«»w rate permits the small consumr to get his juice at a lower rate. but compels the larger consumer to pay considerably more. The ruling says:
“The Commission finds that an increase in rates is not justified at this time, hut there is reason for changing th#* rates now in effect. Th#* testimony brought out the fact that the present lutes are what are known as step rates and are discriminatory for the reason that at various step* of the seal** it is possible for the customer to lower his bill by using or wasting more energy. For Instance, for lighting purposes. 4 9 KWH would cost $5.88 and fin KWH would cost $5.50.
The Commission will prescribe lighting and power rates that will avoid this absurd condition and which, it is estimated, will not affect the revenue of th** company to an appreciable extent. It will be found that th** rates prescribed will amount to a leduction to the smaller consumer If. ;Kter a lair trial, they are found to be inequitable. the Commission will authorise different rates upon a showing made by th** company or the citizens.
Wherefore, th#* premises being considered and th** Commission being fully advised, it is. therefore, ordered that th** Ada Electric Ai Gas Company shall put the following rates info effect in th#* city of Ada for current used for lighting and power purpose:
First 75 KWH per month at lie per KWH
Next 125 KWH per month at p#*r KWH.
