The Real Estate
Tulsa, I. T., June 18.—The runs and
deliveries of the Gulf Pipe Line com-
pany for the first fifteen days of Jvjne
averaged 16,000 per day or a total of
240,000 barrels. This basis main-
ained throughout the month will
make a total of 480,000 barrels. The
runs and deliveries of the Gulf peo-
ple are making a hlg hole In the pro-
duction in the Tulsa fields, and at the
some time are making a decided hit
with the operators here, n the month
of May, the Gulf ran 400,000 barrels.
> month of April a trifle over
300.?00 barrels. The increase has
been rarld each succeeding month.
When the Gulf Pipe Line company
entered Tulsa, there was being taken
from the Glenn pool only about 7,000
barrels daily. The Prairie was tak-
ing all the oil. At present an aver-
age of 60,000 barrels Is being taken
from the Glenn.
Guthrie, O. T., June 18.—The nom-

Morgan Not Found
TulBa, I. T., June 18— It was all
mistake. Officer Booth did not cap-
ture Oscar Morgan, the young man
who touched the Robinson hotel safe
last Wednesday. Booth went to
Hominy Post, as reported, but after
scouring the country for two days
failed to dig up anybody who looked
anything like Morgan. The report
that Morgan was at Hominy first
came from Vinita. But when Booth
got there, there was nothing doing
The natives hadn't seen any bank roll
burglars around those parts, and
Booth came back empty handed.
Mrs. Morgan, wife of the absent
one, came to Tulsa from Muskogee.
She demanded that the police fork
over her trunk and the same was
forked over. She said she didn't
know where her husband was, and
that she hadn't seen him for over a
week. There was no way to hold
either the woman or her baggage and
both were given their liberty.
