The only excitement north of the Ohio Tiver was near Undercllu". on the Pittsburg and Wetern R"tllrrd,when John M. Patter ton & Sohu brought in a good 30-foot well on tne Kcssler farm. Iherowero at least a dozen wells drilled around the Kessler, hut only two of tsetn are making enongh oil to call them producers. The field as a whole has proven a failure. Except in the vicinity of Brownsdale, operation in Sutler county are practically at a standstill. Zelienople and Harmony are dead to the world so tar as new work is con cerned, and the Garvin pool south of Evans Citr" has assumed a graveyard appearance. Jforthwest of Allegheny City several gas companies have kept a few strings of tools unning. and have been bringing in passers whose pressure ranged from 100 to 200 pounds. Nothing hie in that line, however, or any oil wells has been developed. In what is known as the Plnhookgas field, around Milltown, three miles east of Verona, oil has been found in the 100-root tand, Imt as the parties drilling the wells were titter cas thoy cased off the oil and went on down. In only one or two wells, Iiowever. was the showing sufficient to sup pose ti.ut it might be developed into a lay ing producer. Developments at Sistersvllle. The greatest activity during the entire f year, and the most important developments bavebesu iu what Is now the Sistersvllle field, located on the Ohio river, 40 miles be low Wheeling, W. Va. Oil is found on both , the Ohio and West Virginia sides or the river. The field takes its name from what was the village of Sistersvllle, in Tyler county, W. Va., and it in turn was.natnea, iue three score years ago, after two sis ters by the name of Wells. It is more tlun a year ago since some ven turesome ti ildcatters got a showing or oil In w hat is the present sistersvllle Held. Lnd-w-g& M -oney struck the old Polecat well, which was probably the first in the region to show any encouraging amount of oil. Then William Johnson, and Cnarles Dnel Aand J. C Tennant went to work and after a T(tiT-rvat de.il of labor demonstrated to the oil liioducingpublle that the field was worth? fomethtmr. Thii was all that was needed, and lHtelaot swing a rush was mude for the tiew L'ldurudo. The natives of the slumber ing old village wero amazed when one morning they j.wok to eo der licks atfd tanks being built on e erj- lot and farm: and pipe lines being laid across "'Mr fertile meadows. Prom a popu lation 300 or ton it jumped to over 1,500 iif u cour -- ot weeks: and iroin a production of 390 r 49u barrels a day It went to over 15,000 barrels a. day. Nearly 200 wells have been drilled in the field, but at the piesent time it ih generally liilleved that the producing sind has been pretty well defined, with the exception of a narrow streaK towarc me suuinwest, on the West Virginia siae or the river. Some pood wells were recently broucht in in that direction, especially on the Keener prop eitv. Thev showed little nr no salt water, I'nd flowed naturally. The oil lound at Sistersvllle, by the way. is struck in the Big Injun sana, at a depth ot from 1,400 to 1,600 J ecu Always Plenty of Salt Water. With the exceptions Just noted, every well In the field produces Irom 5 to 0 times as much salt water as it does oil. Frequently, a tcr h well has been pumping saltwater for weeks, it will commence to show con siderable oil and eventually turn into a fair pumper. The present field is about four miles wide from east to west, and five miles from north east to southwest on a 22 degree line. The capacity of the wells ranses from 39 to 400 b-irreU a day, and in the last eight months tlie field has produced almost 2,000,000 barrels or petioleum. There is yet within the limits or the defined territory plenty of Muff which lias not been drilled, and with a uetter price lor oil tue production would prooubly be increased quickly by the drill ing ot new uolls. There U still more being dono around fisterville than in any other part of the Pennsylvania, New York or West Virginia fields, but it is very probable that as soon as ISistoisvllle goe down another field will be speedily btought to the notice or the oper ators. This at least has been the history of the oil country, and it is not improbable that the -ieit field will be in Doddridge county, W. Va., almost due east or Sistersvllle. There liuve been several good ells drilled iu that locality already and others aro now golmr down. They are, however, from 10 to 15 miies from the Baltimore and Ohio Kail load, and little definite imormation has been heard from them, except that they were producer-. It is claimed that there are a couple of "wells some eight miles apart on a northeast and southwest line which are showing oil, nml if this is the case it promises to be a field of the first magnitude when fully de veloped. , 01iiofc Xndlnna and. Kentucky. The Ohio and Indiana fields, particularly the lntter. have at various times during the year been boomed energetically, bnt the re sults do not show that they have come np to the expectations of the boomers. No new pools ot any importance have been developed In the Ohio fields. Spurs ana extensions ot the old pools have been loilowed n l) and occasionally a well was found which spurted oil, water and mud for a few hours at an enormous rate, but none of them hold out. Tne Indiana field seems to have been greatly overestimated according to the re ports which are brought back by Pennsyl vaiiia operators who have visited it. The Bind, tuey claim, is extremely spotted and Trf-achei us and tho size ot the wells de veloped does not pay In the long run. Host o. the .-operating has been done around Portland, the county seat of Jay county, in the northeastern part of the State. Outside ot J.ty county very little is being done. KentucKy has once every few months made a claim tor recosnition from her oil trade. Out as votnotbing has been developed nich warrants the placing of any reliance on tlie State as a gieat producing lezion. 1 here have been a number of wells drilled mid numerous efforts made to open the tern tor), but without results. The oil is found in the Trenton limestone mul is of about the same quality as the Ohio oil. The regions in which it has been found are loniote from the railroads or rivers, and lis there are yet no pipe lines through the c uutiy there Is no market for the product. It ma m time become a factor In the oil "business, nut at present it is too far removed mid too difhcult to reach while better fields mc neater. At crago Trice for 1892. The average market price tor crude oil fur the ear 1S92 has been more than 10 cents a barrel bolow that of any previous j ear. It v ill .11 crago about 5G cents. The following on- the averages for the months or the yean January, t2$& February, G0J; March, 57K: April, 57J: May. 6; June. 54; July, 52$; Au.Ust, 5: September, 515; October, 5 2m ember 52, i.nd December uhoutSi cents. In Ui I be average pi Ice was 71Vf, in 1SS7 it -nas in lftS It went up tn8in8S9 I, ere was nnnther jump to 91, in 1830 it ti lopped to & and in 1891 it was down to 67 centc. The pro luctinn of the Pennsylvania, New "York and Uest Vir-inia fields during the j ear has at eraged 87,845 barrels a day. This average Is greater tnun forany other year in the oil business, with the exception of 1S91, -when the daily average output was 94,930 lxirrels In 1SS0, when Bradford was Hear ing the zenith of its glory, the production was only 7L1C7: in 1SS1 It was 74,954, and in ltS2, when tlie Cherry Grove gushers wero lrvelopcd, lliotiverage went to 81,303 barrels. The next j ear it declined to 63,336. In 1S83, Jollomiig the shutdown movement, it was onb 40,700. and in 1E90, when Wlldwood was a: lis nest, the uernge was up to 73.5S3 lwrrels. In Janu 1 1 y, 1891, the dally average .jKodnctioji was 94,419. and ror the month of December U was 78,000, a decline of over 12.003 barrels a day. Decline in Completed "Wells. There has been a remarkablo falling off in tho number of wells completed daring the year. Tho number Is less than it has ever been, with the exceptions of the years 1SS7 and 1883. The total for the year Is 1,899, only iibnut one-half the number finished in 189L End only one-third or the number completed in 18P0. The only reason that can be given ji.r this cessation ot wotk Is the extremely low pi ice of crude. xnere ate now zuu wens uniting In the various fields, and the average at the close of each mouth during the year Just closed was 213. This is only one-half tne number aveiugel in 1891. There was an Increase In stocks during the past year tram 16,500,000 barrels in Janu ary to 1D,1C0,C09 barrels in August, when ttfv began to decline, and are now don u to juoO.WW barrels. eveal New Pipe lane. The j ear 1892 will be remembered as the , j ear in which several new and independent 'pipe lines wero completed. It will also be remembered as the year in which tho first individual line was completed to the sea hoard. Tlrst tho W. L. Jlcllon line was laid from tne McDonald field to Coraopolls, where tank cats were loaded with oil and shipped tu tuo Independent refineries. Then the Producers OH Company ent Into tho busi ness and put down aline to Coraopolls, and cn'HHi'Zircd feeding the lank cars. mi hi ufterWHi'U W. L. Mellon organized the C. -e,.fit Pipe Lino Company and con- cue a pipe line irora tne McDonald Hold J to Xlarcus -Hook, a shipping point on the Delaware rlvrr below Philadelphia. This line was completed last Ootober. Then the Producers and Ktfiners Pipe Line Compan v whb organized and a line was laid from McDonald, north through the Butler county region to Oil City and Tltusville, where mot of the independent refineries aro located. This linn has been completed and oil Is now being pumped through it. Some one next proposed n pipe line through tlie northorn tier onuntries of the State which would connect the northern end or the Producers and Uefiners line with the seaboard. This scheme was immediately adopted and rconey was subscribed to build such a line. Contractors are working on it now, and the projectors claim that they will he able to pump oil by the 1st of April. Big Sales D urine the Tear. It would scarcely do to pass over some of tho larger cales of oil property which oc curred in 1832. Tho Millers Run Oil Com pany started the selling by disposing of a big block of territory, on tlie Ohio side of the river in the Sistersvllle field, to the Ilenry Oil Company, of Chicago, for some thing like $115,000. It was considered at the time a good price for the property. Not long ago, after months of negotiating, Messrs. B. Forst and C. D. Greenlee sold to the Tidal Oil Company, of Kbit York, which was organized by a W. Scofleld, lortrerly an tipper oil country operator, a large block or developed territory in the McDonald field for about 33J3,00a It had produced over 1.000,000 ban els of oil and had seen its best days when the transfer wns made Only recently the Victor Oil Comptny paid the Independence oil Company $26,000 JorbtJ acres or land soutn west ot tne iun u o Sistersvllle, on which there was one well, making 35 barrels a day. Early in December Bitts & Walker, of Butler, sold to the McCnlmont OH Company a block ol 100-foot property that lias a monthly production or 13.C00 bariels. The consideration was $75,000. Tlie Situation Warrants Better Prices, The situation at present is bullish. With the exception of 'Doddridge county, W, Va., no new fields are in sight. McDonald Is on the decline and Sistersvllle has reached almost the keystone. The upper county and Butler fields are practicallv dead. Very little new work is beinu started in the lower districts, except what'is absolutely neces sary to protect tho leases, lhere is a de cline or nearly one-half in completed wells. The shipments are increas ing, while tho stocks are declining. Ohio and ltnssla are no longer the hug-a-boo they were a year ago. With steadily In creasing shipments, the stocks of legitimate Pennsylvania Qil will rapldlv fall off, and It is this fact which leads the Pennsylvania producers to believe that better prices ate in store for them, and that they will soon reap the benefits. Another bullish factor is the new pipe lines. They should create competition and thus bung to the producer better remuneration for his work. Jons G. Wallace. Fine Fresh Candy for New Year's.
