He came over to Canada from the United States in 1870 to Petrolia, Lambton County, Ont. There he has been actively engaged in tho pro -duction of oil and he has also e.\ -plaretl new fields in all parts of t'un-ada. For an English .sjmttcato he went to the West Indies and conducted ot)or�tions io th island of Cuba. In Trinida^l. ho,says, they have .So far got only shallow oil. It is asphaltum, a lake, practically, of heavy oil, there 'being no paratlln bases. The otil on the margin is cool'd and hard, but in the ccnti-e th3 lake it is not and a n^an would sink in it if he attempted to cross. Irom I'rinadid supplies have liceo drawn for England for the last huiulioj .years, but no light oil hns been found there. li! Pennsylvania, Kan^tas and Ontario, on the other hand, the oil has a paraffin base and this is also the chnractcr of tho oil in the west of Canada. Mr. .Peat visited the Flat Head Valley in 1901 for the Crow's Ness Pass llailway Co., which held a concession from a Drilish Columbia government. Sinca then this oiil field has come into the hands of actual prospectors and is l>eing ecific gravity of the,oil is ,S2. On the Alberta side there are springs coming out of the mountains and the oil light as on 11k; Fla/t Head, but considarable lignter than Hero tliora have jbeon only partial tests iiKide. One or t�o wells have been put dovm, one to ,a depth of 000 feci. They | have not yet rencbod a formation i that wflU give sufficient oil to niiake it.a paying territory. Mr. Peat stiys i from his experience that they arc not '. looking in tho right place and tho ' point he makes is an inteiiostiivg one. They can never e.xpi'ct to find paying oil where it is oozing out of the-i ground. They must go back to where there is overlying rock tokecp 1 it back.
