The Oil City Derrick figures nt length to prove that the prod net ion of oil nt present is too lnrgn to hope for paying prices, and frantically nppeuls to the producers to "stop the drill." It does seem to lis thnt the producers have bad experience sufficient to manage their own business. Every concerted movement heretofore has proved disastrous to the best interests of producers. They will hnve to be governed by the law of supply and do mand, same as others in different branches of business. Low prices will "stop the drill," in such manner as to work no permanent injury to the busi ness. It will regulate itself. News paper appeals, for merely sensational purposes, Rre calculated to infinite in jury to the business. Vt'o have plenty of oil in our country to supply the world for a long time to come.
