If the new proprietors do not comply, an injunction is obtained, and, rather than have the work stopped for months until the case comes up for trial, the victims are generally willing to compromise. In the beginning of the oil enterprises on Oil Creek, as now in some of the new oil territory, the owner of the fee obtained, as compensat...
