Mr/Conner has'hcd  ^hargo of (he erection of the drill  '���������nd has the first holel down some,  fifty feet.   The .indications so, far  -re Irghly satisfactory and a'l that  that could be expected.... The present ground will testvthe ground to  some four hundred and f'fty feet .  and thus give a good idea "of the  formation  to'that  depth  and   an  indication of what may be beneath  that level.     ,    ���������  The directors of the. company  have decided to put down a series  of holes wjth the'smaller drill so  as to find- the most suitable location, to put-down -the first hole  with the^ larger one At a later  period a diamond drill capable of  boring toa.depthvo������..frora' 2500 to.:,  3000 feet will be placed on the  ground. It is not expected that  the oil "In payable quantities wTill  be found at a shallower depth. So  mucb for what has been, and is to  be done but we must not lose sight  of who has been ,the means of  bringing about an operation which  is likely to be' the backbone of one  of "the largest and wealthiest in-,  dustries in British Columbia. I  think therefore it would be wise  to give the history of the industry  from the start.  In September of last year Mr.  Lindsay Russell of Abbotsford in-  -erested some of Vancouver's lead  ihg citizens i.n the Matsqui lands  and sold them some 320 acres'of  .lie old and well-known Maclure  estate. Later on he sold thesimo  people Hollands and Cru'ckshanks  the Fraser, the Couch ,and the  Brown properties which all surround the Maclure estate���������some  oeven hundred acres in all.  The purchasing syndicate later  formed themselves into to what  is now known as the Provin'-ii1 Investment Company of Britiah'"'���������'������������������  umbia. One Sunday when Mr.  Russell had these gentlemen up  viewing their estate, Mr. T. R  Nixon, the contractor for ths r>ub  station at Clayburn produced a  sample of a peculiar smellltig sand  that his men had unearthed in mala  ing the excavation. It was hand  ���������ed around on Clayburn station to  all, who were asked to g've an opinion as to what it was. Everybody gave a guess but none h't on  petroleum. Still there was one  very cunning gentleman amonge  the crowd in the person! of Mr. J.  J. Banfieid the present secretary  treasurer of the o\} company, who  slipped a quantity ��������� of ������������������ it into his  pocket to test when he' got home  The result was that on Monday  morning a. conference was held be  tween a few and it was de?idecl  that an analysis of thef sample be  made. A few days later it was  known that the material was bitumen; and.it was then decided  that the country should be stakeu  twelve claims were staked���������about  7,000 acres in all by Russell Lindsay  as agent for various persons; but  as things went on it was decidod  that the owners of the, lands hold  the' oil and coal rights and .therefore the staking-was of no avail.  It .was at this point that Mr. C-  F. Law, the present ma;a������������������:nf i  director of the company, who represents .English capital, wa3  called -in.  A fresh start was made and leases of the properties were obtained from the owners; everything  was running .smoothly, but.it was'  discovered that the leases were  only good for one,year.  Another, start, had to be made  and fresh leases drawn for a term  of five years.'  The  company  was  formed, the  directors   and  officers   appointed  and everything was ready to go  to  the public  when again it was"  to  the- public   when  again ,it was.  found that a five years' lease was  not long enough to induce the pub  lie to put their money into the ven  lure  so  there  was nothing ,for it  but to start all over again and get  ten  year leases.   This   has      now  been   done.   Everything   is   ready  "the- money' subscribed/.'the r-iaehin  ery on the ground, and in position  Llie expert here and the speculate  ing population in both Canada and  the United States with their eye-*  fixed  firmly  on  Matsqui  Prairie.  Now who is to be thanked for all  this���������threem en, principally     Mr.'  Russell for bringing all the men to  the district in the first place, Mr.  J. J. Banfiel, for his  foresight in  placing the sample in his pocket  and Messrs C. F. Law and Mr. J. J.  Banfieid for their dogged determination in engineering the com ���������  pany through and bringing about  the present state of th'ngs.  Of course it is well known that  many claim to be discoverers;  Some claim that they have known  that petroleum existed in Matsqui  for the last twenty years. To these  we can hardly give praise, nor ears  they be commended for letting  such a valuable product lie dor  mant for so many years In fact  those who know the circumstances  must admire thegentlemen who  engineered the company through  and obtained the leases for the  present company, more especially  when they, know that the leases  which no one who has seen them  could- deny are absolutely fair to  the farmer.  sc-e-  Halcofflb-Gardraer  Custer, WaBh.', May 23rd, 1910-,'-  A pretty wedding took place at  the home of Mrs. Holeomb's. ^ic  groom's grandmother, when Mi ss  Tva Gardner became the bride b'f  Wright Holcbmb; Miss Gardner  is the daughter of Mr. and .Mrs  George Gardner of Abbotsford, ;B.

Higgirison  has just sold one of his model hon4  es at a good figure. Mr. Higgin-  son is another of those men wjm ���������  have faith in the future of Abbo'e  ford, and he is to be commended  for the energetic manner in which  he has come forward and htiiped^.  to fill the wants of the man with  the family. Mr. 'Higginsbri .hafjj  built four houses, during Jhe larft  three months all of which.are rent  ed to good tenants: It is only hop  ed that he will go1 on building as  there are several families wanting houses at the present time.

The company holds leases for  ten years on some 3000 acres of  land, the present Parafin Oil Com*  pany of B C. is formed on 580 acres  out of this amount and later en  other companies will be forme:!'on  the balance of the land.  To show the character of the  men .who'represent the present  company it might be as well just  for a moment to analyze their position in regard to the present com  pany, which is now operating. The  pany holds one half or 125,000  shares and the other half goes to  the public1, 62,500 of which are to be  sold and the other 62,500 are given  away as.'a bonus to those purchasing. The 125,000 shares owned by  the members although alloted are  not distributed. They are held in  trust by the secretary and no one  touch them. What does this mean  to the investing .public? Simply  this that they have only their own  shares to compete  with and the  The Canadian-   Pacific ; Railway <  have recently woke up to"the'fact'r'-  that Abbotsford is-'. a< coming- city  ���������a place  of  importance,���������arid"' an;,;  appropriation has  been    granted'  on  a new station.

Hitherto  much  indignation      has  been felt  owing  to the  way  in  which the G. tt.

What could be fairer?  What more reasonable or what  more just?  Before concluding, it might be as  well to say that the matter has  been fairly and squarely placed be  fore the investing .public, Messrs  Banfieid and Law spending many  months among the California oil  fields, obtaining the latest information. They had also while there  the severest tests and analysis  made of the companies oil aands.  Mr. Price of San Francisco' has  made a moat complete, and search  ing analysis of sands, and the  companies' prospectus shows Id  detail  the  results.  The company deserves to be  commended in their perseverence  and energy in taking in hand the  the drilling operations, which if  they prove to be successful in discovering oi1, and it is hoped they  they will; then it will be ian everlasting benefit to the district and  British Columbia in general.  "VVe.are glad to add that the people of Abbotsford are showing  their confidence in the venture Mr  Russell reporting that he has die-  posed of a large number of shares-  since drilling operations started,  he wisely asked the directors to  putiaB'.de a parcel of shares to give  put aside a parcel of shares to  give the local people a chance.���������  Communicated.  1  ���������if  W  .. .       -,,.-,..v." ���������"-' ...������������������***?*;���������.

Another meth  od is to rate*, her according to her  general appearance and the exter-  irdications of milking powers; appearances are sometimes deceitful  Recetnly a farmer near Ormstown,  Que., sold five cows at $25 each"  saying they were no good as dairy  cows. The purchaser.found to his  great satif action "that one' gave 1������,-  000 lbs milk and another' 13,00 lbs.  Sometimes a cow is valued because  ehe is easy to keep, or she is a docile family pet. Coming nearer to  the practical test, a farmer may  judge his best cow to be the one  that daily gives a couple of. pails  full of milk in June; though she  may quickly decrease in flow, the  remembrance of that big yield  sticks in her owners mind and she  is undeservedly ranked too high  Or she may have earned a wide local reputation just by one isolated  test for fat very likely higher than  normal. On the other hand a cow  that gives only a moderate yield  but attends strictly to business, for  a reasonably long milking period  will probably prove most valuable  Again, there may be some general  idea of production, but; totals that  are only estimated aregenerally in  excess of the actual yield.  The positive proof of value is ccr  tainty of the cow's ability, to produce milk and fat economically;  the generous minded, unselfish,  rual dairy cow, independent of  strikes and lockouts, works full  time, and returns a handsome mar  gin of profit above the computed  cost of 'feed. The one infallible  test is a record of the production  of each cow for the full period of  lactation. Don't average up the  herd, ascertain that each cow is a  vpebia'iat. i  * L  0  iiBBaaaaiMaMi  BB!iijlBi<8M6iiiiwi#^^ FOUR  THE ABBOTSFOBb POST, "        ABBOTSFORD, B. C.
