ware, Lnokiiwnnnii nnil Western com
pany, nml inventor of the Kern Tfttcnt
Slntcploker, hnH nn nppllcntlon pend
ing nt WiiBhliiBton for u patent on rt
"stiew conveyor," which will ho lined
for conveying culm from tho ihmiPH
Into tho main convejois and thence
into tho wnsherlea for scpmntloii.
M piescnt the culm Is taken ftom tho
dmnpB nt n pitch of 43 degrees, nnd
when the pile Is reduced to about halt,
tho lomaltlder Is shoveled hv men Into
the conveyors. The Fern nppllancc will
do away w Ith tho water Hush pans and
those used in Hushing culm Into tho
conveyoia, and tleoroiif-p the labor 10
qulrcd ftom So to 50 per cent.
Tills appliance Is to be attached to
the main conveyor, and will do the
work now done by the hose, water and
Hhovolers. The Having in water used
alone, without the labor Involved, is nn
impoiUnt item in the opeiation of
A working model is now being built,
which will bo placed in operation at
the Oxfotd washciv as soon as com
pleted. The appliance consists of mov
able screws, fifteen feet long, which
gather in the culm for a distance ot
thirty feet. It is attached to a wire
lope, which is tho (hiving power or
Bhaft, connected with the engine which
operates the main conveyor.
The scicvvs nie worked on tho coll
pl.in, and cany the culm into a hop
per, and thence into the main convejor.
The weight ot the screws is sufficient
to cairy the culm, thus sustaining the
pioper gi.ult.itlou. It is adjusted to
anv position by means ot iopcs at
tached to a. windlass nn the main con
veyor. These ropes elevatu the sciews,
lower them or pitch them to light or
left, as leiiulietl.
The featuie of the appliance is the
"joke" In which the cogwheels aie
joked together, thus keeping them In
"mesh," as the inventor puts it. Those
who have teen the appliance pionounce
It a eiy pi.iUlcal and Ubcful Inven-tlon.

Mino Workers' Officers Arc Still in
None of the United Mine Workers'
officials fiom this tllstilct returned to
this city from .Shamokln yesterday.
Woid iccelvod at tho district head
quarters was to the effect that Presi
dent T. D. Nlcholls was going on to
New York as a member of the commit
tee cinpowetcd to effect a settlement
with the assistance ot the Civic Fed
eration. Among the superintendents and op
erators here tho belief Is strong that
theio will bo no strike. The idea of
an every other day stilko Is practic
able, they say, hut would hardly bo to
the advantage of the men, even It the
companies should tolerate such a sys
tem, which is not likely.

The Fuller Syndicate.
A dispatch from Baltimore h.ij.s:
"U. L. Fuller bald today that ho and
his associates would hu fullv able to
satisfy Ma or Hajes that they do not
represent tho Pennsylvania lailroud in
their bid for tho Western Maiyland,
and that the inteiests back of his syn
dicate aio as strong .is tho PoniiHyl
.inla. Ho said the bid of the suidi
t.ite would be inei eased to meet the
demands of tho mayor, and was confi
dent that It would eventually be ac
cepted. Asked lelative to tho lepoit
that the Wabash was behind his .syndi
cate, Mr. Fuller declined to discuss that
question. The syndlcute is said to con
sist of Edwaid U. Fullei. of Swanton;
Moses Taylor, who Is heavily Inteiested
in the Dcl.ivvaie, Lackawanna and
Western; Walter Scianton, president ot
the Lackawanna Iron and Steel com
pany; Cornelius Vanderbllt, Walter
Delano, president of numeious coal
companies, and a dliector In the Lack
awanna Iron and Steel company, and
Fairfax S. Landstreet, who has been
general manager of the coal intetests
of tho West Virginia Cential. The syn
dicate Is said to control the West Vir
ginia Cential and Pittsburg railway,
nnd nccoullng to repoit Is arranging for
extensive developments of that piop
eity. Mr. Tuller said that contracts
have been aw aided for 1,000 steel coal
tars, each of fifty tons capacity, at a
cost of $1,350,000.
"The first step taken will bo to util
ise the Llttlo Kanawha lailroad and
other small lines which hnvo lecently
t changed hands, with tho view of seem
ing direct connection with the Wabash
and a western market, and also secur
ing to the Wabash what Mr. CSould has
long desired, a good supply or eastern
"It Is lepoited that i:0,000 aties of
undeveloped West Viiginia coal lands,
lecently purchased at a cost of over
$.2,000,000, have been pooled by the West
Virginia Central and Wabasli Inteiests,
nnd that these roads will at once ex
tend their lines Into the teultory to
open nnd develop the acquisition, The
land lies in Gilmer, Lewis and Braxton
1 ountles and Is along the proposed ex
tension ot the Little Kanawha jallroad.
"The Wabash eMension of tho Wheel
ing and Lake Eiie into Pittshuig is to
be utllUed to give the new line an en

The Greatest Oil
Gushers and the
The kinds of oil this company produces are those
in which the supply is much less than the demand at
this time. Ours are illuminating and lubricating oils
not fuel oil.
An oil company which, acting on the soundest
and most conservative business methods, has without
doubt acquired a success in less than ten months that
staggers belief. No other company in the field ap
proaches it in success.
Read the following biief statement of facts:
Tut In Our Own Money.
1. Tho promoters of tills company nut In
our own money ttnil mitdo the rompnnv a sue
ccsh beforn nmlcluu; tiny extended public ofTer
of stock. ThlH compiitiy linn no Bnlurled mana
gers' Hat, though four of Its directors mo per
Koiiully employed In miporlntcntllng ItB opcrtt
tlons. Never a Stock Scheme.
2. It never vvriB a stoclc-solllnir scheme liv
vvhlcli nllogcd "bunkers" nnd "fiscal agentH" got
from 50 to 7." per cent of tho funds. In thin
company nt lerst 00 per cent, of tho funds re
ceived lmvc pono directly Into pioperty nnd oil
wells and pobslbly 10 per cent. Into general ex
penses. The usual modern oil company opei
ntes tho other way. Tho ofllcers or dlreetots
of this company hao not ono cent Inteicst In
No Fuel Oil Scheme. .
2. It never would have anything to do with
Spindle Top or Beaumont fuel-oil propositions.
There's nothing in them. We can buy Spludln
Top gushers outright for $15,000 or 520,000 und
yet some oil companies arc taking ono well and
a patch of giound about ns big ns 11 lot In 11
graveyard and putting a lur valtto of $1200,000
on It. What becomes of tho extra $l,lS0,0OOr
No "Par Value" Scheme.
i. Wo never did have anything to do with
thnt new method of faking tho public by which
"par valtto" slime- of 1, 2, R and 10 cenm flro
helng Issued, tho uvcrniro subscriber believing
tliat he Is buying par valtto shares of $1. Such
business looks fishy on Its laco. I'coplo who
bought such shares would, in nine canes In ten.
not have done so if tliuy had known tho leal
No "Fake Dividend" Scheme.
fi Tills company never advertised tho pay
ment or prediction of big, quick dividends to
iiiducn customers. It never bought plnj oil-out
wells und pretended it wan paying dividends
fiom production when it was not. Tho ofllcers
of this company nro not mixed up In any others,
nnd If they vvero they wouldn't pay dividends
fiom stock sales in old companies to get gud
geons to swallow new ones of tho sumo type.
"How to the Hue, let thu chips fall whoro they
may." Whin tills company begins the puvment
of dividends llioy will bo legitimate nnd no
stock will then lie for sale. It seems impossible
to ronielve what clnsn of people will buy stock
of a 1 ompany at a cut rate which professes to
be paving big dividends at the sumo time. Tho
lln.tncliil absurdity, it not vvorje, of such a pro
posal is amazing.
We Publish statements.
C This Is tho onlv company we havn heard
of that publishes tlnaneinl statements showing
its income and for what disbursed. No doubt
Ilia othrrs would cheerfully do so, hut it would
result In dcinnglng tho liver of tliclr companies
when tho public cumo to seo whero tho money
was going to. Wo announced somo weeks ogo
thnt wo would retlro from tho newspaper ad
vertising columns, and tills Is our lust, uppear
nnco now on anv scale. Our gusheis coming In
with such beautiful regularity, wo believe it a
public duly to announce tho samo and glvo tho
public Investor a, clinnoo as well as tho prlvato
one, no he or sho could put his or her money
into a company of substance.
No "Free Lunch" Scheme.
7. Wo don't pay tinnaportallon to our wells
or equip special trains. Wo put-thls money,
thus wnjtcd, In lands nnd oil wells. Wo lot
lli:SUIrS talk, not tho WIND of somo nlco
fellow who has had a Jolly time and Is willing
to appreciate it enough to help ring in tho pub
He by somo wondciful y.nn about things of
which ho has no practical knowledge-, "llead
hoadh" aro no expense to tho A. & V. OH Co.
If a man won't invest without seeing what wo
have ho can pay his own wnv, as UJs going Is
for his own satisfaction and notVmirs. Wo
don't clulm to be uny of the "anointed," but wo
KNOW that thero is no oil company which has
advertised stock for sulo for twelvo months
that dares make tho open showing that wo
do or that can compnro with us In results.
This Company Has a Greater Amount of High-Grade Oil-Gusher Territory and Larger Illuminating and
Lubricating Oil Wells Than Any Other in the World Without Exception, as Explained.
1- Our Kentucky Gushers.
(a) Tlio Jones Farm (300 acres) Glibber Is a
liigh-grado illuminating oil-well brought in on
Christmas of a 1,000 barrels dally capacity,
which oil men s.iv wilt double on drilling a
trlllo deeper in tho sand. Send for photogra
phic Illustrations. ,te. Er7"Avci.ige dntlv cupuc
itv of wells of this tpc in thu United States is
only thieo barrel", and et they make money.
(b). Our Wages Farm (200 acres) Gusher,
In ought in Feb. IS, is a pine lubricating oil.
Opinions ns to capacity of well vary from 2 0f0
to C.000 ban els a day. Old operators and Stand
ard OH men say that "It's a wonder." It reallv
ii, for any kind of oil, and more particularly
for lubilcnting. in which wells that pump a
barrel a duv aro considered very good.
Our Barnes Farm (100 Acres)
(c). This gusher would have been In some
days ago, but some trouble was oxpeilenced In
-the. casing, and as thnt will soon bo remedied,
our clrlllcts say that it will lny cither of the
other two in the shade. Wo announce it now,
ns It Is a big certainty. Tho oil is believed to
bo tho tame as tho Wages Tatm.
(d). Wo aie drilling along a four-milo "di
vide" between livers representing tho Knox
County, Ky Gusher Field. Wo havo nearly all
of tho property several thousand acres of this
kind. The wells drilled aro about half a mllo
np.iit ouch. This tenitory was specially so
li ctod by our Hold superintendent as the best
in the county. Others had frequently passed It
over. We acquired all of it wo could, or nearly
all of the whole tract. Wo bellevo thero Is
room for seveial hundred of theso guhera
there. Wo will allot about five, acres to each.
We havo 18,000 acres ot good land there be
sides thlH big gusher strip. AVo havo nearly
SO.000 acics in other counties and States.
JXJST BROUGHT IN BY US IN TEXAS. BEAD WHAT PRESIDENT FLOURNOY SAYS. A WELL OF THIS SIZE AND THIS
KIND OF OIL HAS NEVER BEEN EQUALLED IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD IN OTL PRODUCTION.
Sour Lake, Tex., March 8, 1S02.
Diiir Jlr. TJnver7agt:
Following my telegram of yesterday, I am
happy to intoim vou that beyond all doubt wo
havo a magnificent well of tho veiy highest
grade of oil. For thirty minutes yestcrdav it
flowed at tho rato of a barrel a second. The
flow was stopped by the choking of oil sand
not quicksand, but tho sand out ot .which tho
oil comes. This will not in any way interfero
witli tho capacltj of the well or tho pioductlon
of oil. Mr. Sinclair, who I have before in
formed you drilled wells In every oil-producing
country in thu woild, said to mo this morning:
"NO FINEH Oil, THAN THIS KVBK CAMU
OUT or THU GROUND." Wo aro now put
ting down tho b-lnch casing. When that Is
dono und tho well cleaned out which may tnko
some time prolmblv tour or Ave days "YOU
MAY Bi: ASSUHDD THAT Wf3 WILU IIAVH
THU BUST WELL, OK ILLUMINATING AND
LT-'URICATING OIL IN THU WORLD. A few
davs ago T wrote in responso to your informa
tion about our glorious success in Kentucky
thot it Is my time now. My timo has come,
nnd with it a triumph that will warm tho
eoekles of your heart all tho dajs of your life.
You will recollect that wo tested tho well upon
a good show of oil ut SS0 feet, after which wo
determined to go deeper. Oil was stiuck yes
teiday about 11 o'clock AT 016 FGET IN
UEAUTirtJL, COAKSL' TltUH OIL SAND,
through which we went DC feet to pipe clay bot
tom, ul which point wo began to withdraw tho
drive pipe to set tho S-lnch casing. During tho
opeiation of withdrawing tho cirlvo pipe tho
well gushed to tho top of the derrick through
the rotary, which dellected Its course, other
wise it would havo gone .'10 feet or more over
tho top of tho derrick. THU OIL, HELD IN
THU Sl'NLIGHT. IS A BEAUTIFUL GOL

The following copy of a telegram Is a reply
from Judge Flouinoy requesting conservative

C. II. Unvcrzoght. 11J3 Broadway, Now York:
Well brought In todav In splendid condition;

II. W. FLOURNOY.
Just G'nsp nt It.
With all tills great showing our authorized
capitalization is only ($1,000,000) ono million dol
Inrs, and wo still have a big block of stock in
the trcasuiv. Did you ever hear of such a
thing in your llfo? Why, somo of the Texas
cheap FUEL oil people don't think anything of
having more than that on ONE well and only
one-bltty-fourth of an aero at that, vvhtlo wo
have nearly tJO.OOO acies selctted oil lands and
have 20 times ns much Gusher ferritin v as the
whole ot "Spindle Top." This situation has
been brought about by our successful develop
ment and getting' In tho field early. How Is it,
any way, for a record of only 10 months in
husincss? Why, ono of our shares Is worth 20
to 2,000 times most of those in the market.
IF YOU WANT ANY STOCK in tlil3 com
panv, tnko notice that this price only holds
good this week, or until our Barnes Fnim
Gusher Is hi ought In, capped and connected,
w lilcli is expected ev cry day now. Every
Gusher means room for dozens more, hence tho
2"i-cont ihIso on tho first ono on each upw farm
in our Gusher belt. Stock can bo paid for in
throe instalments, it nnv convenience to ou.
Tho amount for sulo Is limited anway, and it
is going tiipidly every day. Last Monday our
i ish orders alone exceeded $20,000 (for tho week,
$T0,000), so vou seo tho special otra $",0,000 cash
reservo bi lug put in tho treasury will soon bo

Price or Stock.
$1 per share. Par value. $1. This stock
would be cheap at W per shuro now. Our pipe
line connections will shortly bo made, when tho
sales will entirely stop. Wo aio tunning a big
force of drillers and pipo and tank outfitters,
and aie providing a big cash reservo In tho
treasury for contingencies, hence loasons, for
present sales. GUSHERS regulate our prices.
Our llrst sales were nt 2!i cents, before gushers;
next 50 cents, next 73 cents, present $1.00. You
may as well know it, as tho prlco is going up to
$3 by New Yeni's. Every gusher bi ought In
and put In shapo dovelops a now tract of
giound and Increases tho price per sharo of
stock 23 cents. This Is a fair ndvanco becauso
tho proven ground will most likely itself in
crease dividends such an amount annuallv.
With our increased drilling forco we will short
ly bo bringing In two gushers a month, if not
What Our Oil Wells Are Worth.
OH wells or production sell leadlly nt
about $750 per barrel dallv production,
sometimes more. At this rato, our pres
i nt 1)0,000 barrels dally production would
bo worth for the wells $3,730,000, or over
thieo times tho whole capitalization of
Present Merely a Beplnninjr.
Our present gushers nre merely a be
ginning, and are coming in now every
month one or more. In six months' timo
we will havo at least 4 times tho present
number of gushers. Think of this In con
nection with present value of the wells
now drilling based on productioa value.
Chance of Your Lifetime.
It just happens that you can buy
stock, now becauso tho plpe-ilno connec
tion, hence sales of oil is a few months
away, und having plenty of stock In tho
treasmy, even -nt our low capitalization,
we have concluded It the part of wisdom
tlngencies and loi most exttnded operations.
