Butler County Reduces Bonda.
DAVD CITY A large transaction
was closed 'here by the county board
of sapenrisorsv- which saves1 the tax
payers of this county $3,000. Tears
ago $119,000 in bonds were voted to
aid the Union Pacific Railroad com
pany to build through the county.
These bonds ran for twenty years and
drew -10 per cent interest At their
maturity $30,000 in cash was paid and
$89,000 in new bonds Issued, running
twenty years at 5 per cent interest.
The .county board, a few years ago.
began to raise a sinking fund to re
tire these bonds when they mature
and in this fund had accumulated
'about $33,000. The City National
bank worked up a deal whereby it
could buy these bonds for the county
at a price that would save the tax
payers $3,000 by taking them up now
instead of letting them run.

STANDARD OIL COMPANY IS
INDICTED ON 6,428 COUNTS
TWO SPECIAL GRAND JURIES AT
CHICAGO RETURN TEN TRUE
BILLS FOR VIOLATION OF
ELKINS LAW. !
Chicago. The first skirmish In
the crusade of the government
against the Standard Oil com
pany to compel the concern to com
ply with the letter of the antitrust
and monopoly laws was ended Monday
afternoon when the two special federal
grand juries returned ten indictments'
against the oil company, containing' a
total number of 6,428 counts.
In respect to the scope of the indict
ments the number of counts and the
voluminous nature of the documents
all records of the federal courts was
broken and when thejuries'Were dis
missed hv Jrwtea Ttathoa attar throa
weeks, of continuous work thev had I
the satisfaction of knowing that they
had hung up a mark for future inves
tigators. The charges named in the indict
ments are violations of the Elkins
antirebate law, which prohibits the
accepting or granting of rebates on oil
and other products. The fine as fixed
by the Elkins law is not less than
$1,000 and not more than $20,000 on
each count At this rate the maximum
fine which might be imposed upon the
Standard Oil company would aggre
gate $128,560,000. I
The railroads named, in the indict
ments, but which for the present are
not charged with guilt by a federal
grand jury, are:
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy.
Chicago A Alton.
Chicago A Eastern Illinois.
Evansvllle A Terre Haute.
Lake Shore A Michigan Southern.
The ten indictments very only In the'
name of the railroad involved and in
the particular shipment alleged tot
have caused the Illegal rebate.
Liable to Heavy Fines.
Practically the ten form one big In
dictment, under which the minimum
fine of $1,000 on each count would be
$6,428,000. If Standard Oil Is found
guilty under each count and the fine is
placed at the minimum of $20,000. the
total of the fines would reach the as
tounding figure of $128,560,000.
Standard Oil promises to contest the
battle at every step, and the first
strife will come when District Attor
ney Morrison appears before Judge
Bethea to ask that the company be
required to furnish bonds for its ap
pearance to answer the indictments.
John S. Miller, who has been re
tained as special counsel by Standard
Oil, will resent the plea for bond. Mr.
On the earlier indictment Judge
Bethea fixed the bond of the Standard
Oil company at $25,000, which has not
been given as yet If the same ratio
Is pursued the total demanded would
Laughs at Bond Plea.
"The Standard Oil company does
not propose to resort to obstructive
tactics and will not unnecessarily de
lay the hearing of the cases. It is
ridiculous, however, to ask the Stand
ard Oil company to give bond for its
appearance in court The company
cannot run away. I have never heard
of a corporation being compelled to
give bail in a criminal prosecution."
The indictments returned far ex
ceed any advance estimate of what
the two grand juries, have been doing
in their secret sessions, yet it is de
clared to be apparent that the reports
are but the beginnings of the govern
ment's battle -against Standard Oil.
The indictments referred simply to re
bate giving and receiving, and were
returned as under the Elkins inter
state" commerce law of 1887. The
vastly more important phase of the
proceedings r-Jch are now the upper
most endeavors of the Roosevelt ad
ministration as betokened by the
policy which has been mapped out
by the president and Attorney Gen
eral Moody is to bring Standard Oil
to an accounting as violding the
Sherman anti-trust law, as a corpora
tion acting in restraint of trade.

and. representatives of the railroads
and shippers of the country
The railroad representatives uni

but presented their views as to the
operation of certain provisions, among
the points urged being extension of
time in which carriers may file their
tariffs with the commission.
The -shippers' representatives urged
the protection of their interests, par
ticularly against the railroads shifting
classifications so as to put up rates
and contending for the discretion of
the commission in the export and im
port changes and for the publication
of tariffs In the full acceptation of that
term. The commission reserved de

Clothier New Tennle Champion.
Newport R. L William J. Clothier,
of Philadelphia. Wednesday won the
national tennis championship, defeat
ing Beals C Wright of Boston, the
present noioor of the title, in straight
Philadelphia. Unable to meet Its
obligations because of the large
amount of money loaned on InsuHcIent
security by its president now dead,
the Real. Estate Trust company of
Philadelphia, which up to last Satur
day, was considered one -of the strong
est financial institutions in the city,
closed Its doors Tuesday. Soon after
the doors closed George H. Earle, Jr..
a prominent financier, was appointed
receiver. The liabilities of the com
pany are placed at $10,000,000 against
which there are quick assets of about
$3,500,000 and collateral of about
$8,000,000 which is not negotiable or
readily convertible. This doubtful col
lateral is held mostly as security for
loans of about $5,300,000 made to
Adolf Segal, a promoter of this city.
The man responsible for the fail
ure was Frank K. Hippie, one -of
Philadelphia's - best known citizens,
who died suddenly last Friday morn
ing In his country liome at Bryn
Mawr, near here, under circumstances
which,, In the light of developments
lead to the suspicion that he may
have committed suicide.
Mr. Hippie, in addition to. being
president of the Real Estate Trust
company was the treasurer of the
board of trustees of the General As
sembly of the Presbyterian church in
the United States and of several oth
er church funds, and was a director
of the Franklin National bank.
In addition to the deposits of the
General Assembly, the Real Estate
Trust also had about $25,000 of funds
placed there by Dr. Roberts as stated
clerk. The Presbyterian hospital of
Philadelphia and the Presbyterian
board of relief, also had sums of
money In the failed institution.
For the loans to Adolf Segal Hip
pie accepted as collateral securities
of the Majestic hotel, a big new apart
ment house, operated by Segal; the
Swedish Steel company of Lancaster.
Pa., and the Pennsylvania Sugar Re
fining company of this city. The steel
company and the sugar refining con
cern have never been placed in op
eration. Segal claims the collateral
he gave is good and that he will meet
all his obligations. There are others
to whom Hippie loaned money on in
sufficient security but their names
have not been made public and the
sums are not believed to be large.
How far Hippie benefitted in the loans
made or whether he was merely the
tool of others is yet to be determined.

upon whose petition the receiver was
appointed, said he was satisfied that

The presbyterian. hospital, of which
Mr. Hippie was treasurer, elected the

when he boarded the steamer and
during the entire voyage suffered
from indigestion and severe headache,

interfere with his work, however,
and he devoted a large portion of
the nice days at sea in prepariag his
speeches and in keeping up his corre
spondence. Mr. Bryan did not land in New
York city proper until Thursday aft
ernoon when he was received at the
Battery by delegations of prominent
Democrats from ail parts of the coun
