Ross Tate The Sign of the Watch Ford St, near City Hall OU1 LCTTU BOX MR. PEAT'S VIEWS Editor of the Herald, report of the expert on the prospects for gas around Leth- bridge may be considered valuable. It certainly showa that he has-some knowledge of the Pennsylvania oil fields aa far the geological-conditions average with the improved appliances of today. The deepest well fn the Dominion was one drilled at Petrolia with a tour and a- half inch hole and that to a depth of feet Coming again to our present locality the. teat well at Calgary, although .started with an eighteen inch pipe, was reduced to a 6 1-4 at feet, four and a half inch at feet, and carried to a depth of feet. Of course the man in charge wus a .very competent I that not a disciple of Mr. Ginter, of Mi-di- cine Flat' nororiety. It .would be a very poor plan for the city .to fit itaelf out with a drill- ing outfit suitable for feet' re- quiring at least to get pro- perly fitted up, with suitable toolw, etc., nnd eventually having to hire a competent man to the work. Then again it is rather a difficult proposition to nf a second- hand'drilling rig for we have a. few ourselves to aell and in a radius, of 200 riiilca you will have no trouble in obtaining quotations on nearly every description ''of drilling plant manufactured. Operators doing work in the oil invariably let their drilling to contractor which should ta proof of the. only practicable method. Of course where companies or individu- als are prospecting in some place at great distance from the railroads and where cartage of machinery is a. big item, it sometimes incon- venient for a contractor to quote, other than a speculative price, owing to the uncertainty of the amount of work. Jn such cases the operators Find it imperative tht-mSelves out with their "own The HUpplying of proper machinery and toola for drilling is a purt of my business along with the setting up ind handling same and I would be pleased to quote the city on rigs of all sizes and descriptions.

A child set to amuse itself with, a pair of HcifiHOM and miscellaneous literature may have been equally suc- cessful.

Apart from the well defined oil or gas fields where one meets .with the secondary formations, the condi- tions may vary- materially, so much that it not probable that anyone but a driller would keep -track of the different appliances most suitable, for those particular conditions. In Pennsylvania there is one iitandr ard rig. suitable in every respect to the 'conditions there encountered, and it ia liable to become >ovfned in the local e.ye aa to make, an iriden- tAtion on hi3 grey matter "and al- though there are many places the in- rig has proven very efficient; still this locality is not real- ly suitable for them, and many oil And gas fields do not uac then at nil. In the eastern countries, where the depths of wells vary from 1 ,000 to 4.000 feet and whe.re drillers figure on obtaining their strings of 5 nnd 4 inch casinirs as great R as .they go 'with the larger one with no ripr.1. Bumatra is a fair example and the formation there not unlike !hr formation here. Considering the work do'nc in AI- by the Dominion the reports of years '95, '56, '97 and '98 show that in nearly every CARC depth wan made with the 5 inch tnd 4 inch pipes of feet and we would therefore expect to hold up the test holes and that method is hardly considered in this instance on uvount xof 'cost. Consequently the bfit.U'r wsy of making a test is' to the present working as -.sji-t c-iild hardly deny. V> there .is gas to be ha1 in quantities in or around and that a body of gas is there, is evident from the fact that it has. boen obtained in small quan- tities iri the "present working, and must ric-cp.ssnrily have its base of -.upply. Sir. B .Redwood in his "Petrol- speaking of the association of salt and petroleum that through- out the globo and petroleum with salt neither solution or in solid is' almost universal.
