Discrimination the Stan drd Practically Controlled the Mar ket for Oil In This Country Washington May 20That the his tory and present operation of the Standard 011 interest shows through out the past thirtyfive years a sub stantial monopolization of the petro loum Industry of the country a delib erate destruction of competition and a consequent control of that Industry by less than a dozen men who have reaped enormous profits therefrom largely through abuse of transporta- tIon facilities Is charged In a report Just submitted to President Roosevelt by Commissioner of Corporations Her bert Knox Smith Part 1 of the report has just been made public and other parts will follow Certain Inv formation acquired Is withheld for the present In accordance with instruc tions of the president who feels that their publication might interfere with the prosecution of tho governments suits pending against the Standard Oil company and its subsidiary com panleeThe report contains the net results bt a study of the petroleum business during the year 1904 It is the first omclal statement of the operations and methods of the Standard Oil company by which the report states through scandalous railway discriminations and other unlawful devices they havo secured and maintained an exclusiveI domination of the petroleum Indus try 1i is stated that in 1904 the Stan jfltrd and affiliated concerns refined tver 84 per cent of the crude oil run through refineries produced more than 86 per cent of the countrys total output of illumnlating oil maintained t similar proportion of the export trade In Illuminating oil and trans ported through pipelines nearly nine tenths of the crude oil of tho older fields and 98 per cent of the crude oil I tl the midcontinent field I rlio report points out that the mono pol enjoyed by the company does tot rest on the ownership of the lourco of the oil supply which amounts to about only one sixth of theItotal but that Its growth and pres ent power rests primarily on the con trol of the transportation facilities After the railroad rebate was aban doned the company the report con tinue the company was able to es tablish a system of secret or open dis criminations of rates in its favor throughout practically the entire country Having established Its monop oly of the pipeline business the com pany substantially refuses to act as a common carrier It is shown thatII the Standard controls not only the wholesale but also the retail trade In oil In conclusion the report says it is apparent that the dominating position of the Standard 011 company In the 011tt business has largely been secured by the abuse of transportation facilities first by flagrant cllscrimiantlons obtained from railroads second by aIrefusal to operate its pipeline system BO

pigeons in a tree he hitched his horse to one of the limbs and fired and killed 300 at one shot The rest flew away and as soon as the tree was relieved of their weight it straightened up carrying his horse with it and the poor brute had to hang there until Tate could go home and get an ax and cut down the tree St Louis Republic When your back aches it is almost in variably an indication that

reason for opposing public ownership is that ev ery Individual In society prospers just In proportion as industry gets the best there Is In human capability On the other hand government control and di

has not thus far shown anything of the capacity of a private enterprise to assign the right man always to the right place The agency which In private enterprise succeeds so generally In eventually landing In the right place the right man Is not simply good Intention or mere Intelligence but the Intelligence and Intention which constantly study the enterprise In hand which make It the one affair in life constantly thought of and planned foran Intelli gence and intention too which are themselves as nearly as possible per manent That kind of seeking out and watchfulness few government depart

man to the right place can pick out of the thousand capable men just the kind of capability that is fitted to this place and Just the kind that Is fitted to that Indeed between government control and private control the difference In that respect Is almost the exact differ ence between what we call true or ganization and what Is the merest ag gregation for In private enterprise each man has come

were based on general rain throughout Nebraska and Iowa Chicago May 20Tho past week with Its dollar wheat has been at historic one in the annals of the Chicago board of trade While statistics on the quantity of wheat which chang ed hands are not obtainable the assertions of veteran traders that the volume of business was of unprece dented proportions may be safely accepted There have been wild see slons In the wheat pit before notably when corners were being run when prices fluctuated more violently when small cliques made or lostmostly lost Imposing fortunes but never before has there been a broader or bet ter sustained general market Never before have grain brokers done a larger business Hardly a house In town has a sufficient force of clerks In the pit to fill the orders which are pouring in from Maine to California Nor are there enough wires to handle the mass of dally business The inevitable therefore has happened and only the larger orders have been considered In the language of the pit It is no market for a piker Crop reports private and public are practically united in the statement that the world cannot grow this year all the wheat It needs to consume Minor Items such as green bug damage and the like have been made much of but the weather here and abroad is the all influential factor Even Liverpool Importers who usually I work for cheap wheat in America

Started The Operation of Public Utilities by Public Officials Has Placed Them Under Such Temptations as They Have Never Before KnownWhy They Are Not Exposed There Is nothing about the visiting American In England more amusing to the native than the Americans convic tion that there is no graft In English municipal poutk- slrederlckC Howe the raagazinlst who writes so much In praise of munic ipal ownership the British form of socialism admits that there Is graft In England but says It Is all practiced by the lords and millionaires No graft he declares has crept In through the municipal ownership and operation of public utilities Graft In England may not be of such magnitude as In the United States said an Englishman who Is well known In public life but Is neither a lord nor a millionaire but It exists hero as certainly as It does In America It Is carried on along similar lines and fos tered by the opportunities which the rising tide of municipal trading affords It Is rapidly growing In magnitude It Is owing to our overstrlct libel laws and to the fact that Immunity may not be granted under English law to one who confesses to accepting a bribe that the corruption now so well known to exist In our municipal governments has not been effectively exposed long ago The newspapers know all about It and they know vho are the grafters but they do not dare to expose the situation and until the proper statutes are enacted It will be almost Impossible to punish grafters through the courtsNot so very long ago a certain speech was reported In one of the London newspapers The speechmak- er was Indignant for neither the subject matter of the speech nor the cir cumstances under which It was deliv ered were creditable to him and he brought a suit for damages on the ground that the libel laws had been violated It was not claimed that tho Int deed It was admitted that the report was substantially without error yet nevertheless heavy damages were awarded to the plaintiff on the grounds that the plaintiffs reputation had been couldtnot show that tho publication of the publicsA little longer ago It was suspected that members of the council of London borough of Poplar had been accepting bribes from contractors who were fur nishing materials and supplies Detectives were put upon the case and the facts were run down Certain of the contractors and councilmen confronted I with these facts confessed and promised to go upon the stand In court and testify to the truth In due time one of the guilty men took the stand as promised and told the story as agreedHe was Immediately arrested as a criminal under the law us its stands and slated for an early trial This chilled the enthusiasm of the others who had promised to confess and they changed their minds promptly and Ir revocably As the prosecution was thus left without witnesses the inves tigation was brought to an abrupt closeNow the Installation and operation of tramways electric light works gas works etc involves the letting of many large contracts by men who hold places In the municipal councils not because they are fitted by training and experience to let such contracts but because they have succeeded through potty politics In getting elected They receive no pay for their services and In many cases are men without finan cial resources of any consequence There are contractors in England as well as In America who are not above getting contracts through bribery and there arc council members of the grade I have mentioned who are no more able to resist the temptation to be bribed in England than they would be in America If it would not sound unpatriotic I might go so far as to say that since municipal trading has so increased the magnitude of munici pal contracts Englishmen in many cit- Ies have been known to seek election I to the councils in order to have the chance to bo bribed We could today make exposures of graft In London and more than one other English city that would startle American readers even accustomed as they ore to reading graft stories It we could only give immunity to whoever might be either scared or reasoned into confessing the truth In other words municipal ownership and operation of public utilities in England are rapidly honeycombing all our municipal gov ernments with graft The law makes an exception with regard to election bribery charges and Immunity may lawfully be promised to those whose testimony is needed to convict the guilty This has enabled us to unearth many election irregular ities as the readers of English news
