Officials of Standard Oil G rammer
Summoned as Witness, I
1 Cleveland. July 17. Tho Plalndenlor
Bays: liualnc lila opinion upon tho '
testimony nliendy submitted to tho
federal grnnil Jury in this district, At- '
torney General Moody believes that '
tho government has at last secured '
tho evidence which will lead to
bringing tho Standard Oil company '
to its knees. The return of District
Attorney Sullivan from an all day
conference- with the attorney general
at New York will mark n completo
change In the plans of tho government
in tho light, to stamp out trade ill
criminal ions lu favor of giant corpora
tions. Tho change of plans Includes a com
pleto reversal regarding J. G. Gram
mer, vice president of tho Lake Shore
and Michigan Southern railway. Gram-
iner will not bo Indicted In this or
any other xleral district. Instead,
Jie win no asked to assist the govern-
inonl In forging a chain of evidence
about the necks of some of the biggest
Stnndard Oil officials In the country,
Acting upon the orders of District I
Attorney Sullivan, Assistant District
At torn oy Garry Issued another sub
poena for tho appearance of Gram
nier before the grand jury today.
Grammer was Immediately served
with tho subpoena by District Deputy
Marshal Fanning. He seemed pleased
with tho turn of events, which innkes
it certain that he Is not to be made
the scapegoat for violations of the
law on the part of others.

plnlned by tho statement that tho
single desire of tho department of
justice at present Is to get at tho
Standard Oil company. A telegram
from District Attorney Sullivan said
that nothing wns to be left undone to
accomplish this purpose. The attor
ney general is firmly of the opinion
that Indictments can bo secured hero
nnd District Attorney Sullivan will
resume work with tho grand Jury with
this cud In view. In addition to order
ing tho issuance of a subpoena for
Grammer, Sulllvuu wired to have all
tho omployes of the Lake Shore rati
way who havo testified before the
grand jury recalled.
It is known that the government of
ilclals are eager to obtain one more
link in the cvhlmmo ni.-on.iv mm I
link In tlio evidence already secured
against tlio Standard Oil company.
A most determined effort will be
made to completo the chain through
Grammer and Jnmes L. Clark. What
tho government officials want partic
ularly Is the names of the Standard
OH company's olllclals through whom
it is alleged rebating arra gcmen.s '

What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge ho
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy,
fulfills even1 wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
nnd every part of the urinary passage.
It corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne
cessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up ninny
times during the night. The mild and
the extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of the most dis
tressing cases. If you need a medicine
you should have the best. Sold by drug
gists in fifty-cent and one-dollar sizes.
You may have a sample bottle and a
book that tells all
about it, both sent free
by mail. Address Dr.
Kilmer & Co., Ring-
