A DEMAND FOR SMALL NOTES.
The Treasury has 20 Million Dollars
Ready for Distribution.
Washington July 21. The autumn
pressure for money against which
Treasurer Roberts has been fortifying
the treasury Tesources Is being felt at
Banks In New Orleans have de
posited $100000 In the New York sub
treasury through their New York rep-
resentatives and Chicago banKs de
posited $200000 in gold. These sums
were deposited in both cases with the
request for small notes to be shipped
direct from Washington to New Or
leans and Chicago. The New Orleans
deposit was half In gold and half in
silver certificates. The (treasury paid
lor tne latter witn small certincaies
without reducing Its net stock. Pay-
ment for the gold deposits was made in
both cases half in gold certificates for
$20 and half in silver certificates and
United States notes for $10 and smaller
Treasurer Roberts will continue as
far as his resources will permit to fur-
nish gold certificates against the re
maining 50 per cent. This policy re
duces his margin of standard silver
dollars and United States notes on
hand but be has at present a fund of
nearly 37 million dollars and believes
that he can spare 20 millions and
have a working margin which would
not cause serious embarrassment. This
fund of 20 million dollars with the aid
afforded in paying out gold certificates
where they are acceptable and hoard-
ing silver certificates and United States
notes prozably will enable the treas-
ury to meet the demands of the sum-
mer without severe stress.

FRENCH WHEAT CROP IS SHORT.
Paris July 24. The French wheat
crop Is now being rapidly harvested
and returns from the departments In-
dicate that the entire crop in France
exclusive of Algeria cannot exceed
26134500 bushels a result which cau-
ses general disappointment. This un-
expected shortness is ascribed to the
unfavorable conditions of the last few
days when the excessive heat prem-
aturely ripened the green and back-
ward crop and forced the harvest. The
leading dealers here now esitimate that
France will be obliged to purchase
from 60 million to 70 million busheds
of foreign wheat.
The wheat statistics compiled at the
ministry of agriculture show that in
the last fifteen years it has happened
that whenever the wheat crop was de
ficient In France as is the case this
year the wheat crop in the United
States has been abundant. Couteaux
a recognized authority on wheat
points out that the price of wheat in
France Is no longer regulated by the
Paris market but by those of Chicago
and New York. The quality of Ameri-
can wheat which corresponds exactly
with the French'wheat Is the red win
ter. No. 2 and the Walla Walla.

NEELY'S CHANCES OP ESCAPE v
Apparently the Havana Postal Frauds
Ready for Distribution.
Washington July 24. Well Inform-
ed officials of the war department are
beginning to have grave doubts as to
the ultimate conviction of Charles W.
F. Neely charged with embezzling
postal funds of Cuba. It Is doubtful
even If he will be brought to trial.
Many questions of Jurisdiction Invol-
ving difficult points of law have aris-
en and new ones come up every day.
It Is now five months since Neely
was required a special act of congress
to be turned over to the Cuban auth-
orities. But congress failed to pass
any special act to compel witnesses
to attend Neely's trial and unless they
are kidnapped by the agents of the
war department and taken to Havana
by force it is not probable that those
most necessary to the case will be pres
ent. The Cuban judges are the men
who determine what witnesses are nec-
essary so .the United States military
authorities are helpless they say.
The war department claims to have
done its part when It offers to furnish
whatever evidence Is under Its con-
trol. The department of justice claims
to have done its part when it landed
I Neely In the Cuban court's jurisdiction
-the war department has been watch-
ing the proceedings in Cuba and no
great surprise would be excited by an
announcemen that Neely could not be
convicted and that his liberty would
be given to him. The war department
is willing to shift the whole respon-
sibility un the Cubans. It Is asserted
here that the military jurisdiction
. ceases when a case comes before the
'judiciary. The officials say Neely must
be tried by the Spanish courts accord-
ing to the old Spanish code. It was
announced at first that the spectacle
of swift Justice on the defaulting offi-
cial would be very edifying.
I The involved procedure of the Cuban
Spanish judiciary is not exactly an
open book to the secretary of war and
the attorney general. They have pro-
ceeded on the assumption that delays
are to be expected in any administra-
tion of justice. However since they
learned that the letters inquisitorial
which had been sent to witnesses in
this country had been productive of
little more than excuses and that the
witnesses were declining to go to Cu-
ba alleging yellow fever and hot wea-
ther as obstacles they have come to
the conclusion that matters are not
going forward with satisfactory ex-
pedition. Unless the proper witnesses
are summoned to testify It Is said that
there can be no hope of securing a con
vlction. The Judges who are supposed
to determine what evidence is material
are displaying such a peculiar attitude
In this matter that the authorities here
scarcely hope for successful results.
It Is said that Attorney General
Knox has been making himself famili-
ar with the rase since he took up his
present portfolio and Secretary Root
has been watching the action of the
Cuban court. Whether be intends to
Interfere and prevent a miscarriage
of justice he has not yet disclosed.
The difficulty of securing the attend-
ance of witnesses Is regarded her a
possibly sufficient in itself to prevent

TEXAS OIL FOR OCEAN VESSELS.
New York. July !1. Cbarlee R
Flint retently gave a commlasloa to
Charles D. Mother to design and to
Ayres of Nyack to build a boat railed
a yacht for convenience which should
be able to travel forty knots an hour.
The boat has been nailed the Arrow

8iuce Mr. Flint gave the roiu miss
ion for a forty knot boat others Inter-
ested In fast vekflss have been trying
to figure out whether U would be poa
sible and profitable to build not a
yacht but an ocean liner that would
rroas the Atlantic In foir days. One
of the persons who took up this prob
lem was George Wilson president Of
the Atlantic Shipping company of this
city. Mr. Wilson believes that his en-
gineers and designers have solved the
problem by the use of turbine engines
driven by the direct Impart of the com-
bustion of crude Texas petroleum.
Mr. Wilson says that his company
Is now making arrangements for the
building of ships to cross the Atlan-
tic from New York o Berehaven. In
the southwest of Ireland In three and
a half days. He says that allowing
two hours from the company's pier In
New York .to Sandy Hook and thirteen
hours from Berehaven to London pas
sengers and mails would be carried
from New York to London In a little
less than four and a quarter days tak-
ing Into account delays Incident to cus
toms examination and the handling of
baggage. He says that the vessels con
templated will have an average speed
of thirty knots clear across the Atlan
tic. 'Mr. Wilson draws attention to the
fact that wh6n the steamers of his
line are running a man can run over
to London and back In nine days. '
This great speed is to be attained
and the company building the ships Is
going to make money out of the pro-
ject through the use of the turbine
engine and of crude petroleum for fu-
el. Hitherto it has been supposed that
the cost of running an ocean liner
much faster for instance than the
Deutschland would be too great and
too much cargo space would have to
be sacrificed for boiler and engine
rooms to make such vessels profitable.

PIECE Of ill I) THE III.
The Ouaher Story was Started
by an Intoxicated Driller Who
had Been Discharged.
Captain J. R. Falkowici has sam-
ples of the last formation taken out
of the Big Hill well and verifies the
position taken by The Enterprise that
there Is no well at Big Hill at pres
Captain Falkowlcs la an Austrian
expert and has operated In the Austri-
an India and Russian fields. Ho has
charge of the field operations of Mr.
FiUhue the London expert who with
an English syndicate bought about
20000 acres of land In the south part
of the county. They are drilling a well
near Big Hill and will atart ona on
the hill In a few days. Captain Falko-
wici has been watching operations on
the Ouffey well at Big Hill very close
and has a partial log of tha well and
la In a position to know Its exact con
dition at present. Up until yesterday
noon they had been unable to fish out
a piece of steel loBt in the well but
expected to be operating again today.
How the story about striking a gush
er and capping the well got out was
in this manner: Prior to the gusher
story the foreman had discharged a
worthless driller and he endeavored
to get even by starting the report.
Captain Falkowlcs was the first to get
hold of It and he was at the Veil the
next morning. A layer of oil was dis
covered on top of the water standing
In the casing and It seemed as If
though the driller had told the truth.
Further examination proved It to be
a very small quantity of pure kero
sene which had accumulated from the
casing. The threads bad become filled
with rust and It was necessary to use
kerosene to cut It out. To satisfy him
self further he procured a long pole
and examined the water in the well.
There were no traces of oil except the
rainbow streak on the top of the well
and the earth' has not been known to
give up refined kerosene.
From the most reliable Information
that could be procured the well Is 980
feet deep. The formation they are la
at present Is a gray sand with black
specks and slight traces of gypsum
which is considered a good sign of oil.
In fact it is considered by a great ma-
ny to usually overlay the oil. They
had penetrated this strata about 20
feet when the accident occurred which
To all fair minded persons together
with other (trustworthy information
which has been received on the sub-
ject this will settle the Big Hill con-
troversy until further operations. Of
course there are a few people In the
oil fields as well as everywhere else
who will persist In their assertions
that there Is a gusher at Big Hill with
a four horse cap buckled to the casing
to hold it down. The driller who start-
ed the report tord a great many people
In town and they were honest In their
belief but ready to accept the truth
when fairly presented to them.
Every one who Is In a position to
speak with authority on the subject be
lieves that the Indications could not
be better than they are at Big Hill.
The drill may penetrate the oil bearing
sand at any moment but that will not
change the condition of the well at
The most damaging character to the
Beaumont field Is the fellow who hears
an oil well reported In and considers
the question settled at that. Fortun-
ately the majority of the people In
the Beaumont field have become famil-
iar with oil prospecting and know that
these misleading statements will have
to be contended against as long as
they continue to sink wells. The fact
that a well was reported In and after-
wards proved to be a mistake does not
prove it to be a dry hole and they have
the same chance or striking oil as at
the beginning or In other words re-
ported gushers and dry holes do not
change the formations of the earth a
