Douglas Dallas Extension Finished ,
In purminncc of their determination
to use oil for fuel lu tlu > near future
on the Omaha-Wyoming hrnnohcH , nu
Omaha report says ( hat Northwestern
ofllclalH are steadily noKOtlntlng for
the oil fk'ldH In that state. A repre
sentative of coal mines near Lost
Springs and Doughm'yo. . , ban been
In Omaha for HOIUO time , conferring
with the Northwestern otllclalH ,
Messrs. Walters and McFnrland.
Ever Hluco the first test of the oil

voy of the United States assorts there
IN undoubtedly an unlimited amount of
oil to be found In the same territory ,
Consequently nn eight-mile extension
Is being built to that district and noon
several wells are to bo mink.
A Northwestern official In Omaha Is
quoted as having said :
"Tho Northwestern Is after nil the
oil It can get and doubtless Intends ( c
operate oil burning locomotives In the
future. Already it has obtained st ;
many wells that n great deal of oil has

The decision of the Wyoming am
Northwestern to use oil on the lint
between Casper and Lander has In
creased the activity In oil develop
mont In that state also , especially In
the Dry Creek field. Outfits nro al
ready at work In that section sinking
wells and a spur will bo built to them
from the main line , which Is but ten
miles distant. The first oil deliveries
are expected within sixty days.
The representative of the Lost
Springs territory now in Omaha , and
who has been In conference for some
time with the Northwestern people In
regard to the development of the sup
posed oil beds there , said Monday :
"I have been told on good authority
that the Northwestern Intends to push
their oil burners , and for this reason I
have been Instructed by my people to
offer our lands to them. Wells will
probably soon be sunk near Douglas. "
AN HISTORICAL EVENT.
Last Spike Is Driven on the Dallas Ex
Dallas News : The steel Is nil laid.
The last spike Is driven. The railroad
has reached the only gateway to that
great commonwealth , Trlpp county ,
soon to be opened to settlement. The
tie that binds a land mad multitude
to the last unsettled choice land In the
corn belt Is completed. It was Indeed
an act of historical significance Satur
day when the last spike was driven
that completed the railroad to Dallas ,
The Northwestern permeates the
great agricultural states of the union ,
congested , crowded , teeming with n
horde of bomeseekers restlessly await
ing the moment when they may en
ter the fair domain of Tripp county ,
To the hundreds of thousands who will
register and the thousands who will
secure homes the completion of this
line Is a matter of vital interest.
In Tripp county the coyote now sings
his mournful evening song nndis-
urbed , the meadow lark jauntily
swinging from his blue stem perch
pours forth the note that emphasizes
rather than breaks the silence of an
unpeopled prairie. Ere long the blue
stem will give place to fields of wav
ing grain and growing corn and the
evening song of the coyote and note
of the lark will be lost in the hum of
