Shipment of Oil. “The tank ship Falls of Clyde was cleared for Honolulu via Monterey yesterday [May 6] with 100 drums of distillate, valued at $2,430, as cargo from this port. The vessel goes to Monterey to load 16,000 barrels of crude oil, valued at $17,600.”—San Francisco Call, p. 57 (7 May 1911)
