Subscriptions Coming in Fast
A meeting of the shareholders of the
Ilig Chief Oil & Gas Company was hold
at the Morhart opera house last Thurs
day evening. Everyone financially in
tcrested in the project as well as others
who were in search of information re
gardlng the development of the oil
field were present, in facjr the attend'
ance was so large that even standing
room .could not be secured. Pretty
good evidence that the people of Red
Cloud and vicinity are deeply, interest
ed in learning what lies beneath the
fertile soil of Webster county. 'Also
judging from the number of new sub.
scribers added to the list in the last
few days it Is evident that they are
willing to back their curiosity with ttie
cash necessary to make a test.
President W. L. Weesner called the
meeting to order, requesting Mr. Pat
terson to tell the people why they
were assembled there. This gentleman
Informed them that outside capitalists
had become interested in this field and
tuat tney were willing to take oer
part or nil of the holdings of the com
pany and that this meeting had been
called for the purpose of placing the
matter before the shareholders of the
company and that while he would pre
fer to deal with experienced oil men,
he wanted the matter placed before
the people whose money is at stake.
After considerable discussion it was
decided that the stock should not be
disposed of to outslue capital, as the
required amount could be raised local
ly. Secretary Stewart was called upon
and stated that the amount of 24,930
had been secured and subscriptions
were still being secured.
il'he mooting then aiHhorlzft the
directors to proceed nt once with de
tails of ordering material nndicftiDg
the contract for tho test well.
Many more interested people came
forward and subscribed for various
amounts of stock In the undertaking,
and judging from the way the people
are subscribing it is a matter of but a
short time until the specified amount
of stock is disposed of and active oper
ations will be begun.
