The new Oil Field. The recent discovery of Petroleum As far North As Bradford in Mckean county in opposition to the stubbornly maintained theory of geologists and experts has been followed by an excitement exceeding that of the Early Days of the Petroleum discovery in this state. Mckean county Borders on the counties of Allegheny and Cattaraugus in new York state and lies Northwest of the great original Oil territory. That portion of it in which the new Oil Belt has been pierced lies in the Valley of the tuning want Creek a tributary of the Allegheny River. It is about two Miles wide and extends northeasterly into Cattaraugus county and the indications Are that it continues As far As Cuba in Allegheny county then follows the Allegheny Valley far Westward. The tuna Valley As they Call it has now nearly 400 producing Wells and hundreds of Wells Are in course of drilling. Geologists have always insisted that the strata of Oil bearing Sand Rock could not be Fountain new York state but that theory has a most effective refutation in the fact that at Limestone Cattaraugus county the richest veins have been struck. Fifteen years ago Job Moses who had made a Fortune in Patent Medicine went from Rochester into the Valley and after prospecting along its streams became satisfied that they flowed through a Rich Oil District. He settled at Limestone and obtaining control of Large tracts of land put Down several Wells. He found indications of Oil but no Oil. In spite of the derision of his neighbors and the positive declaration of geologists and experts that he was wasting his Money he continued his tests until his Means were exhausted. His great Faith in the existence of Oil in the Region however has induced other capitalists to investigate and two years ago the Sand w As found and Oil flowed in abundance. Within the past sixteen months not less than $10,000,000 have been invested within a circuit of Twenty Miles. Land that two years ago would have been dear at any Price now Sells at $ i Joo per acre. Within a distance of four Miles three flourishing towns have sprung into existence and the town of Bradford formerly consisting of a lumbermen a tavern and a few scattered farm houses now has 3,500 inhabitants. It is a singular fact that while the Early operator in the Bradford Region could not strike anything but dry holes the present drilling is followed by the reverse. Out of the hundreds of Wells put Down not a dozen have proved failures. At Olean and other Points in Cattaraugus county and As far into the Allegheny As Cuba Wells Are being sunk. The Oil of the Bradford District is found at a greater depth than in the old Region. Some Wells Are As deep As 1,400 feet but the average depth is 1,100. The second Sand of Bradford is the third or Oil bearing land of the lower districts. Wells that were drilled by the first operators in the Valley to the depth of the holes in the original territory and then abandoned have been drilled deeper and the Oil Rock found. Another peculiarity of the Bradford Wells is that none of them Are that Are called Large producing the average being about ten barrels per Day. This fact instead of being a detriment As the people in the lower regions affirm is claimed to be an advantage by the Bradford operators. They argue that the territory being Large and the Wells Small the danger of exhaustion is much less than it is in the lower territory where the Oil areas Are Small and the Wells Large producers. While much of the land in that locality has been purchased outright by operators a majority of the Wells Are drilled on leased lands paying a Royalty to the owners. There Are three pipe lines connecting the Wells with the enc railway at Olean thirteen Miles Distant. A line is also to be constructed to a Point sixty Miles Distant. A Branch of the Erie railway runs the entire length of the Oil District from Carleton n. The business on this Branch was a few months since $3,500 a month it is now $35,000. Capital is still pouring into the Valley and every available piece of ground is seized upon at once. The very door Yards Are invaded by the Derrick and Drill. The most notable Case of sudden wealth is that of an irishman named Mike my Carthy who until recently was a switch tender in the employ of the Erie railway at Salamanca and is extremely intemperate. His father who owned sixty acres of land at Limestone died a few years ago and left the farm to Mike. To the taxes on the property was More than Mike could do and it could have been purchased at almost any Price. Two years ago he was offered $1,500 when the Oil fever was in its incipient stage and mikes wife shrewdly would not let her husband sell. He is now Selling it off at $1,000 an acre and his royalties yield him $200 a Harrisburg a Patriot. A the fishes Are certainly dominant in the town of Ira it.
