share for a limited amount of stock. No further call or assessment to be made on
subscribers : $100,000 is reserved for a working, capital, and $800,000 in
stocks at par, for the future development of the Company's property.
Its property consists of a
perpetual lease of about 75,000 acres of oil territory in San Luis Obispo
County, State of California, lying on and near the Pacific Ocean, being all the
following five ranches, viz. :
The Manuela Ranch, containing
The Arroyo Grande Ranche,
containing 4437.38 acres.
The Balsas Chemical Ranch,
containing 14,335.22 acres.
The Pisina Ranch, containing
The Stone Corral Ranch,
containing 30,911.20 acres.
The titles of these large tracts have been
thoroughly examined and approved by Judge Parsons, of San Francisco. All reports, written and verbal,
of gentlemen who, during the past year, have visited and thoroughly examined
this property carefully and scientifically, concur in representing it as
overflowing with Petroleum. They say: " The Ranches are splendid estates, but
their value is in their almost fabulous wealth in the best of oil."
The Company's lands extend for
over ten miles on San Luis Bay, on the Pacific coast, with a good roadstead,
where shipments can be made with facility to San Francisco, South America,
Australia, China, and New York.
The lands have a gentle slope to
San Luis Bay. and there is full assurance of the practicability of conducting
the oil, at a moderate expense, through pipes from the wells to reservoirs or
tanks, to be constructed at this point, when it can be sent to the markets of
the world, either in its crude state or refined, according to the demand.
The cost of shipping will not
exceed 50 cents per barrel, and the Company-will be enabled to deliver petroleum
at New York at $5 per barrel, and at Australia and China at reduced rates.
It is designed to develop fully
and practically the means and wealth of this property at the earliest

the information that can be required, with a general description of the
character, advantages, and prospects of the Company's property, are fully and
plainly set teeth in the prospectus.

completed that it is intended to close the same on or before the 12th of
February. Subscriptions, $750,000, of which $600,000 purchases the land to wit,
62,860 acres. The remaining $150,000 is the permanent cash working capital of
the Company. Capital stock, $6,000,000. Par value of shares, $100. Subscribers
to this purchase will receive eight shares of stock for each one hundred dollars
subscribed. Lands located on the Little Kanawha and Elk Rivers, in the counties
of Gilmer and Braxton, in the very heart of the oil regions of West Virginia. Professor Richardson reports:
"Your property is the very centre of the West Virginia oil regions. It has
numerous oil and gas springs along the banks of its streams, one of which vies
with the famous 'Burning Spring' itself." Professor Shepherd, of New Haven,
Conn., reports : "I consider it eminently oil producing land. The oil bearing
shales underlie it extensively, and the long lines of carburetted hydrogen, or
illuminating gas springs, some of which I saw burniny, as well as the appearance
of oil itself on the surface of the tract, fully confirms one in this belief. "There can be no doubt that along
your creeks and tributaries there is a large extent of valuable oil producing
territory. The prodigious amount of bituminous and cannel coal, iron ore,
limestone, and fire clays embodied in the high hills on your property, the tops
and slopes of which are covered with an extraordinary growth of white oak and
other heavy timbers, add immensely to its value." These views are fully indorsed by
the reports of the most practical and experienced men from the oil districts of
both Pennsylvania and Virginia. The Company consider themselves
fortunate in having secured the services of Mr. Blackwell, a practical civil
engineer, for the general superintendency, so well known as the late Chief
Engineer and Superintendent of the" Commissioners of Washington Heights," New
Arrangements are in rapid
progress for the immediate development of the property on a scale commensurate
with its value and extent.
