The Producers' Declaration of
When, in the course of developments, it
becomes necessary to take the head off
that greatest of American hog—Mr. John
Rockafeller—we. the producers of Butler
county. Pa., having the wherewithal and
the opportunity so to do, resolve to do it.
We charge him with crashing all competi
tion in the business of transporting and re
fining crude petroleum, nnd thereby forcing
us to sell our production to him ut a frac
tion of its real value, and we charge him
with attempting to obtain control of the
producing territory with the intention of
forcing us out of the business of producing
oil, and therefore as a matter of self pro
tection, and to save for ourselves and our
families a means of obtaining livelihood,
we have resolved,
1. To build a pipe line t;> a shipping
poiut on the Ohio river, whence the
crude petroleum can be sent to Xew
Orleans by water, and thence to the mar
kets of the world for crude petroleum.
2. To build a refinery at Butler, or
gome other central point in the oil and ga
producing territory, having competing I ail -
road faci'ities, for the purpose of refining
oil with that cheapest of fuels—natural gas
—and lor the purpose of supplying the home
market with the best of refined oil at rea
sonable prices.
And to accomplish these ends we pledge
the necessary funds and our sacred obliga
tions of honor and good will to each other.

BTTLER, I'A., October 1, IS9O.
The meeting of oil producers in Reiber's
Hall last Friday evening was well at
tended. One hundred producers, or about
half those of the county were in atten
dance. The business of transporting and
refining oil was thoroughly ventilated aud
all agree that the profit in it is immense.
The scheme of building a pipe lino from
Butler county to the .Ohio river, for the
purpose of supplying the foreign market
for crude petroleum, was; also pretty well
agreed upon, as was also "that of buildiug
a refinery—but the producers seemed to
think that the refinery also should be lo
cated along the Ohio, whereas, with its
competing railroads Jand natural gas, the
town of Dutler would, we think, be the
most available loeat'on. The pipe line
will have to be bnilt by a corporation hav
ing the power of eminent domain, and it is
proposed to build the refinery under the
Limited Partnership Act, and by small
subscriptions. The shares were fixed at
$lO each, and no person is to be allowed to
own more than 200 shares, and it is to be

The Salt-Water Case.
Last Saturday afteruoon the Union
Water Co. of Beaver Falls applied to Judge
Wickbam, of Beaver Co., for an injunction
restraining C. J. 1). Strohecker and others,
associated as the Enterprise Oil Co., and
Francis S. Wilson, the owue' of the farm,
from operating certain oil wells, for the
reason that salt-water, oil, etc., running
from said wells into the creek and thence
into the Beaver river, makes the water of
said river unfit for domestic use, and in
jures boilers, pipes, etc.
Judge Wiekhain set Monday of this week
for a hearing and at that time granted a
preliminary injunction.
The Water Co. probably selected the
Enterprise Co. for defendants on accouut
of their property being in Beaver Co. and
the furthest down the cre(k.
This will be a test case and the prop
osition of the Beaver county people is to
shut down all the oil wells from which
salt-water or oil runs into the streams that
drain into the Beaver, but this they will
fail to accomplish. If they will look into
Book 113 of the Peun'a State Reports, they
will that in the case of Sanderson vs.
the Penn'a Coal Co., a case taken up from
Lackawanna Co. some three or four years
ago, this question wus fully discussed, and
the Supreme Court decided that an injury
similar to this one was one without damage
or remedy. If, however, the wells have
been abandoned they can require them to
be plugged, or collect damages if not

A particularly sad accident happened in

of Mr. John M. Plants, were playing .in a
little house in the yard that thi ir father

from home and Mrs. Plants was engaged

the Summer kitchen, where tiler- \\.i< lire

The can exploded, the burning oil was
thrown over the children and they were so
terribly burned that they died that eve

years, and Fannie aged 3.

Truth Crushed to Earth Will

In a former article under the above
heading, we made certain charges respect
ing the award of diplomas at the two la.-t
fairs and at the same time challenged
Mr. Williams to a contest before competent
j uil ges.
Mr. Williams, iu his very short article
published a few days ago, does not deny
the charge we make, that at the Fair of
1880 there were no judges appointed, but
claims he had a diploma granted by the
Association for the year 18JS0. and "adds,
"I have the premium for 1890 alter the
Association directors meet."
Before 1889 we were not iu the business
and cannot speak of the means employed
by Mr. Williams to gain diplomas, "but
we know how he obtained his diploma
in the year 1889, and how he tried to
obtain it in IS'JO. We again charge that
there were no judges appointed 011 pianos
and organs in 1889, that any diploma
granted Air. Williams for that year was
fraudulently obtained.
This year the same party who helped to
perpetrate the fraud last year again under
took to secure a diploma for Mr. Williams.
Siuce our last article was written the
directors of the Association have had a
meeting. The matter of granting a di
p'oma lor pianos and organs was fully in
\estigated, and we are authorized to say
that they ignore the action of the so-called
judges and refuse to grant Mr. William
a diploma. They find the appointment ol'
the judges was unauthorized and was male
without consulting the officers of the As
sociation; that they were not even appoint
ed by Mr. Trout man. who had charge of
that department of the fair, but by his as
sistant, Wm. Eusminger.
We refer any one doubting the above
statement to the directors of the Associa
tion. who so kindly permitted us to use
their names. In support of the charge wc
make, as to the maimer of obtaining the
diploma of 1889, he following affidavit will
speak for itself:
Before me, the subscriber, a Notary Pub
lic in and for said county, personally came
John li. Grieb and R. J. Lamb, of the firm
of Oriel) it Lamb, piano and organ dealers,
of 120 South Main street. Bui'.er. Pa., who
being duly sworn according to law, depose
and say:
That on Septembers, 1890, William Ens
niinger, iu a conversation with us, stated
that at ttie fair of )s'-9 he had charge of
Floral Hall; that there were no judges ap
pointed on pianos and organs; that he
(Ensuiinger) simply Lad given Mr. Wil
liams some red ribbon, which Williams
displayed on his instruments to make
believe he had been awarded the same,
all of which they state to the best of
their knowledge and belief.

It is the duty ot the people in charge of
the several departments to return the
books to the Secretary of the Association,
and wo know ho ( Knsiiiinger) marked Mr.
Williams for a diploma and that the Sec

granted the diploma.
Is it not time that the manner of obtain
