Oil Men Organize Primarily the factor that took them to Montana at this time was a state meeting to organize :iu association of the oil men of the state, held at Lew- istown, Saturday. January 22. About S. P. Winslow, Bank of Mon- treal Western Superinten- dent, Meets Local Man- agers Here Mr. H. P. Winslow, superintendent of Weatem Branches of the Bank ot Montreal, with, headquarters ia Win- nipeg, Is In the city, arriving here on Monday, and leaving this afternoon for Reglna. Mr. Winslow Is making one of his periodical visits to meet and confer with managers ot the lo- cal branches. While in tha city he me; seven managers of the branch banks of the Bank of Montreal in the district south of Calgary. He started for his western tour, with Saskatoon as the first point, going on from there to Edmonton and Cal- gary. Tha country, said Mr. Winslow is going through a trying time, and thir calls for the strictest economy all round. Things are difficult In Can- two hundred and fifty to three hun- dred visitors were in Lewiatown at ihat -time, and a very interesting all day session was held, and a strong state organization was perfected. The next day a large majority of the visi- tors spent tho day at the wells in the Cat Creek fields. The flrst discovery of any note was iu December, 1919, when oil was brought in Iu a well In the Devil's Basin, a fleld about fifteen miles north of Roundup. Several wells lire now drilling In that structure. The latest well brought In was that of the Alberta Block Coal company, or Jesse Gouge of Dmmheller, who recently brought In a well estimated to produce in tbe neighborhood of three hundred barrels per day. East of the Devil's Basin Is the Big Wall Dome, a small area that Is controlled principally by the Ohio company, Standard subsidiary. The general leellng is that considerable activity ran be expected in the structure dur- ing the coming summer. Fourteen Producing Fields Northeast of the Big Wall Coulee Is the Howard Coulee, and again north of tbe Howard Coulee Is Flat- willow district. Development is go- ing on in both ot these areas, but up to the present time sufficient depth has not been reached to prove either structure. Northeast of the Flatwll- low. and practically due east of Great Falls and due south ot Maple Creek is the Hold that Is attracting the most attention; that Is the Cat Creek field, The Frantz corporation brought in a well In the early fall. At present there are fourteen producing wells. On the Sunday that we visited the camp the Mid-Northern brought in a twelve hundred barrel well. Since that tima they have brought an eight hundred barrel well. The -total pro- duction of this Held is roughly thirty- five hundred barrels per day. In addi- tion to tbe fourteen producing wells there are twenty-seven or twenty- eight rigs now drilling. This struc- ture Is about one and one-half miles wide and four to five miles long. Tho nil is piped in two and four inch pipe lines to WInnett, and from there transported by rail to tbe refineries in Wyoming. There Is a great deal of activity in Cat Creek Held. Leases are chang- ing hands every now tbe develop- ment is started. A northwesterly ex- tension of the Cat Creek Sid Is tbe FJrush Creek Dome and the Box Elder Dome. Particular attention is now being paid to Brush Creek Dome. Some few wells are drilling and other rigs are assembling preparatory to starting work. New Fields West of Roundup considerable at- tention is being paid to several struc- tures, but for the present the moat of the attention Is being given to the field between the Devil's Basin and tbe Cat though other develop- ment is opening np In the line ex- tending from the Cat Creek to Fort Ilenton. Iu these fields there is con- siderable trade in royalties. A per- son buying the royalty is given s deed to the royalty which Is record Aside from tht work in Mussel- shell and Fergus countitn, the district fact that It was an oil find, for time Intoxicating liquor to an Montana development and its rela-1 reason that as most expressed it, j estimated value of slightly more than tive Importance to future development th. locltlon of th8 6M mlde it more !one j, ,n to to B.C. product if any oi, found.
