DR. DANIEL MORRIS HAILEY

opened mines at Haileyville and at Wilburton, operating under the name of Hailey-Ola Coal Company, which he had developed into large producers at the time of his death.

In 1876 Dr. Hailey and William Pusley having discovered coal at Savanna, they induced the Jay Gould interests to begin mining operations there, developing for a time the largest mining industry in the Choctaw Nation, Savanna becoming then the largest town in the territory. Dr. Hailey removed from McAlester to said place, the company store being operated by Hailey and Pusley.

 

In 1887 Dr. Hailey took over the Osage Trading Company which was located at another point.

 

After the passage of the Act of Congress of June 28, 1898 (30 Stat. 495, chapter 517), Section 13 providing that leases as to coal and mineral deposits made under Indian customs and laws were terminated with the additional proviso that the parties in possession having made improvements and produced coal in substantial quantities should have preference in taking new leases under the Secretary of the Interior in compliance with his directions, Dr. Hailey retired from the mercantile business and opened mines at Haileyville and at Wilburton, operating under the name of Hailey-Ola Coal Company
