OIL HEARING ENDSAF KANSAS CITY
Interstate ! Commerce Commission May
Resume Inquiry In Washington.
Kansas City March 15. The inter-
Btato comuierco commission completed
Its investigations here Into the meth
ods of the Standard Oil company and
the railroads In dealing with the in
dependent oil producers of Kansas.
The commission adjourned to meev
again at a time and place to be desig
nated by It. It will probably resume
the Investigation In Washington and
may summon before It the presidents
of different railroads and coal compa
nies. These men may be ordered to
Bhow their company's records and to
eliow the stock and bond ownership
of all alllllatcd coal companies and
manufacturing Interests and. the metli-
'ods by which the transportation de
partments of different railroads pre
vent other coal companies from oper
ating In Kansas.
Many who heard the testimony and
watched 'he Investigation here con
cluded that the commission would
probably grant a lower freight rate up
on fuel oil. In the bearing Mr. Prouty
of the commission asked a great many
questions of railroad traffic men about
what would be the principal effect of
a lower freight rate upon fuel oil. Ex-
Senator Cockrell of the commission
said : "This Is just a start. We will
go to Washington and Investigate the
oil and coal business. We must get
a great deal of Information from the
railroads. The trouble will come
when we undertake to learn the own
ership of all these concerns. We must
try to give everyone a fair chanco. "

the secretary says that General
Wood's cablegram seems to him to
show most clearly that thu unusual
loss of life was wholly linn voidable ,
to which the president replied thai
General Wood's answer "Is , of couise ,
entirely Mitlslactory. " General Wood' *
dispatch Is as lollows :
"I was present through practically
the entire action and Inspected the lop
of crater after action was llnished.
Am convinced no man , woman or child
was wantonly killed. A conslderablo
number of women and ehlldien weru

for the reason that they wuru actual

Moro women were trousers and were

were In many cases used by the men
as shields whllo chaiglng troops.
These Incidents nrc much to bo regretted -

that the Mores , one and all , weru
fighting not only as enemies , but re-
llg.ous fanatics , believing paradise to
be their Immediate reward If killed In

ently desired that none bo saved
Some of our men , ono a hospital stew

ed , and by their feigning death for
the purpose ot getting this opportuni
ty. I personally ordered assistance
given wounded Mores and that food
and water should be sent them and
medical attendance. In addition ,
friendly Mores were at once directed
to proceed to the mountain for this
purpose. I do not believe that In thla
or In any other fight any American
soldier wantonly killed a Moro woman
or chl'd or that he ever did It except
unavoidably In close action. Action
was most desperate and was Impossi
ble for men fighting literally for their
lives In close quarters to distinguish
who would be Injured by fire. In all
actions against Mores we have begged
Mores ngiln and again to fight as men
