JOSEPH E. BAUER, vice president and general manager of the Indiana Oil & Gas Company, is one of the very prominent business men of Vincennes, whose operations are of great importance to the people of this part of the state. Although yet a young man, in the very prime of vigorous manhood, for he was born in 1895, at Elwood, Indiana, he has risen to prominence, and his sagacity, far-sightedness and excellent business management have brought about many changes in the oil fields. For years it was thought that there was no oil in this section of Indiana. Repeated attempts brought to the unsuccessful operators no results, but these attempts continued to be made, and in the course of them some valuable coal deposits were uncovered and a limited amount of oil.

In the meanwhile, in February, 1928, three men, S. M. Newton, then of New York City, Joseph E. Bauer, of Vincennes, Indiana, and Richard Steinhorst, then of Tulsa, Oklahoma, organized the Texana Oil Company, of which Mr. Newton was president, Mr. Bauer, vice president and general manager, and Mr. Steinhorst, secretary and treasurer, as an individual concern. In the development for oil in this section this company discovered a large gas well, and found large gas deposits in the drift of fifty wells. Through the efforts of Messrs. Steinhorst and Bauer large gas deposits were found producing 100,000,000 cubic feet per day, and the magnitude of the development led to the organization of the Indiana Oil & Gas Corporation, to furnish gas to Pike, Knox, Gibson, Daviess, Wabash and Vanderburg counties. The gas wells of the company are located seven miles southeast of the City of Princeton, near Francisco. The gas is found in an area ten miles in width and twenty miles in length, in seven different kinds of sand. This is piped to various counties through different pipe lines that already have cost about $300,000, which with the labor represent an investment of something like $500,000 in field equipment. The company leases 80,000 acres at an annual rental of $80,000. In conjunction with the development work a geological department is maintained under the expert supervision of H. P. Barnett, formerly connected with the Indiana Geological Survey, and he is ably assisted by Ralph Esray, assistant state geologist, and R. E. Rankin, of the University of Indiana. All the acreage has been checked by that department and verified by Dr. W. N. Logan, state geologist and president of the University of Indiana. The gas reserve has been checked by M. J. Devery, of the Hope Engineering Company, of Mount Vernon, Ohio, and they give a reserve sufficient for twenty-five years. The fact that practically an unlimited amount of natural gas will be available for industrial purposes for at least a quarter of a century has accelerated business to a remarkable degree, and new projects are getting under way with great celerity. The leading geologists of the state are confirming the opinions of their confreres. The Central Public Service Corporation, owners of the Francisco Area Distributing System, had the acreage checked by Ralph Daviess, foremost gas engineer of America, and he reported the reserve as satisfactory for a period of ten years. The pay roll of the Indiana Oil & Gas Company in 1929 is $35,000 per month, employment being given to ten in the office; five in survey work; seven as field executives; seventy-five at the peak of Princeton working on the main line twenty-nine 6"; thirty-four 4"; eighteen 3"; and ten 2", a mileage of ninety-one miles. The general offices are in 403 to 408 LaPlant Building, Vincennes; the executive offices are at 150 Broadway, New York City; while the field office is at Princeton, Indiana. The Indiana Corporation has purchased ninety per cent of the stock of the Grayburg Oil Refinery Company, San Antonio, Texas, together with a 7,000 refinery, 1,000 acres of producing oil and gas leases in Baxter, Pecas and LaSalle fields. The corporation also has a refinery producing 23,000 barrels at Luling, Texas; they have twenty-three service stations in operation at San Antonio; and over half-million storage for oil, and sufficient tank cars in connection.

S. M. Newton, a financier of New York City, is president of the company, and Mr. Bauer, one of the local magnates of this part of the state, is, as already stated, vice president and general manager.

In the early spring of 1929, March 14 to be exact, the City of Princeton held a gas day celebration, and on that day the Princeton Daily Democrat, as its leading editorial, published the following, which is so applicable to all of the sections affected by the gas development that it is herewith quoted:

"Today, Thursday, March 14, the citizens of Princeton, and the several committees appointed for that purpose, are extending a glad hand to hundreds of visitors who have been invited here to attend our Second Natural Gas celebration.

"The first of this character occurred many years ago, so long in fact that the great majority of those present today have no recollection of that event, and yet, thirty-five or forty years ago is not so long when we think of the road and the rate we have traveled.

"Back in 1891, when citizens contributed to a fund to drill into the earth and demonstrate whether Princeton had coal underneath the surface, as they believed, five wells were put down, and from two of these at least gas has been seeping for some years.

"Later, when the oil field west of Princeton was opened, other gas wells were brought in and for some time this city burned natural gas in cooking and heating stoves, open flames, old fireplaces, grates, and in fact every place where coal and wood had been burned, including the many new devices at that time.

"Like all natural gas discoveries, the idea prevailed that because 'Mother Earth' was pouring forth her treasure there would be no end to it, and waste held forth until the time came that nature failed to respond and Princeton's natural gas field gave way to the artificial variety that has been served regularly since.

"The oil field having been developed to such a state that unrealized revenues were pouring into the pockets of land owners and operators, no one seemed to care about natural gas and it was permitted to be choked out for the more lucrative product.

"The oil field is still functioning, at a reduced production, and many of the old wells are producing what is considered a satisfactory daily product from the pumps.

"The field spread. New prospectors came and, as a result the north, northeast, east and southeast sections of Gibson county have been developed into one continuous oil and gas field.

"There are at present enough gas wells open and plugged in Gibson County to supply this section of Indiana with natural gas for heating, cooking and industrial purposes for many years if it is properly conserved, and that seems to be one of the outstanding points of the present owners.

"To our visitors, there will be little that can be shown them to impress the importance of natural gas, its convenience, efficiency and cheapness as compared with artificial gas. It all comes through pipes, most of which are underground, and the little houses in East Mulberry Street that contain the gauges, meters and control valves present no striking appearance.

"Several furnaces have been equipped with modern heaters, temporarily, to show the visitors what is possible, and cooking stoves will be on display, but when the average individual tries to discover the difference in natural or artificial gas flame by looking at it, there is not much 'whoopee' to it."

After mentioning local weather conditions and the effects thereof, the editor continues:

"Princeton and the companies operating the franchise have no stock for sale. There are no strings to this entertainment. It is to be free to the visitors and home people, with the exception of the men's banquet, and the intention is to make all of our visitors enjoy themselves to such an extent they will want to come again, and often.

"Many will be here who are not strangers and the renewal of their acquaintance will be a real pleasure for our people."

In another portion of the same issue of the Democrat appears a most interesting article by Jim M’Cormick, in which he writes of the first gas well in Princeton, which came from sinking wells for coal test, as mentioned in the editorial, and the running of a makeshift gas line to the public square.

Another illuminating article also appears in the Democrat of March 14 telling of the permanent results of the sinking of five wells during the former oil and gas development at Princeton.

The Princeton Clarion-News, under date of March 15, gave considerable space to the celebration held at Princeton the day previously. President Newton, of the Indiana Oil & Gas Company, was the principal speaker, and he said in part:

"Your state geologist, Doctor Logan, had for years contended that there were vast natural gas possibilities in this part of Indiana." He spoke at length upon the magnificent work of Mr. Bauer, to whom he said he had given $50,000 a year previously to invest in Gibson County and told him "to do the best you can for me." Mr. Bauer’s best was a corporation that had a $1,000,000 investment in the field, and development began. He visioned the paving of Highway 56 between Princeton and Oakland City, a great concrete route lighted with natural gas.

The Oakland City Journal, under March 15, gave an excellent account of the celebration at Princeton, and mentioned that "Wells drilled west of Oakland City by the Indiana Oil & Gas Company, headed by Newton, have shown yields of from 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 cubic feet per day, Newton declared. Additional tests have yet to be made, he said, but the present discoveries indicate that a twenty-five year supply is now assured."

The Evansville Press, under date of March 15, said in part, in referring to the probability of Evansville having natural gas:

"Natural gas for Evansville, with a -sharp cut in price to consumer by summer, was the picture held out Friday by S. M. Newton, Vincennes financier and president of the Indiana Oil & Gas Corporation, developers of the natural gas field at Francisco, Gibson County.

"The company is now supplying Princeton and pipe lines are being laid to Vincennes and Washington at the rate of four miles a day.”

From the above it can be seen that the people of this part of Indiana are enthusiastically back of the company of which Mr. Bauer is the efficient and active vice president and general manager.

In connection with the great work he is accomplishing a little personal history is interesting. His opportunities in boyhood for acquiring an education being somewhat limited, Joseph E. Bauer took a business college course which enabled him to secure a position with the Sims Oil Company as bookkeeper and stenographer at Lawrenceville, Illinois, and proved so valuable that he was later transferred to the sales department at Buffalo, New York. Subsequently he was made general manager of the refinery of that company at Lawrenceville, Illinois. After a year there he was again transferred, being sent to Yale, Oklahoma, and made chief clerk and assistant to the manager of the J. Howard Pew Pipe Line Company, a department of the Sims corporation, and served in that connection for three years. The entry of this country into the World war interrupted his career, for he volunteered for service and was in France for fifteen months, and after his honorable discharge from the army, went into partnership with Mr. Steinhorst as producers, and drilled their first well, 3,500 feet in depth, in Pawnee County, Oklahoma, opening the Mashan Pool. They also drilled the first well, of any depth, at Glenpool, thus opening up production. After two years in that part of Oklahoma, during which time forty wells were drilled in the state, Mr. Bauer came back to Indiana as an independent operator, his field being Kentucky and Illinois. During his work in these territories he became identified with Bell Brothers, of Robinson, Illinois, and organized Mahtika, Illinois. Craig Lowrie, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was operating in Gibson County, Indiana, and Mr. Bauer later took charge of his land department, and drilled fifty wells and opened up three new pools, Mount Olympia, Summerville and the Francisco pools. Following this long and varied experience Mr. Bauer entered upon his present campaign, which, without doubt, is going to make him a national figure in financial and industrial circles, and the associate of the money kings of the world.

Mr. Bauer is a son of Joseph A. Bauer, a native of New York State, who settled in Indiana in 1890, and at Vincennes in 1900, and is connected with the Old Vincennes Window Glass Company. He married Theresa Schwartzman, and they had nine children born to them, of whom Mr. Bauer of this review is the eldest.

Joseph E. Bauer has been married, and he has a daughter, Elizabeth Bauer, who is attending school.
