PITTSIJL'RGH, ra Jan. au.-The fourth '
successive advance In cruCc olla vas re- I

announced Its prices today, as on every

When the Standard Oil company of
New Jersey was dissolved by order of the
federal supreme court, last year, a num
ber of smaller companies were organized
In this territory and competition for crude
oil for tho new refineries has become pro
For eighteen months m-ecedlni.the dis
solution of the Standard, which took place
December 15, 1911, Pennsylvania 'Crude, .on
which the price of nil oil Is baaed by 'the.
purchasing agencies, had been quoted? at
J1.30 a barrel. Eleven days afterward the
price advanced 5 cents and then it be
came apparent that the purchasing agen
cies of the various Standard Oil sub
sidiaries had determined to force prices
to a much higher level.
The policy of tacking on 5 cents to the
price they paid was continued until De
cember 14, when the producer's dream
was realized In the arrival of "J2 oil."
But It did not stop there. Soon after the-
beginning of the new year another ad
vance of 6 cents was recorded, on Janu
ary 6, and on January 27 7 cents xmt
tacked on. From that tlma' until this
morning there have been dally adVancea
of 7 cents, and, oil men here were today
predicting 32.60 oil by midsummer and 14
oil before the end of the. year.
While it Is realized there Is a scarcity
of oil, the movement this week has been
so unusual that many perrons feel that
something more than the legitimate com
mercial demand underlies It.
The effect of the advance has been
most pronounced In western Pennsylvania.
