JOHN D. UNDER FIRE
i; (Continued from First Page.)",
He 'added that the net earnings for 1907
were approximately $80,000,000.
Mr. Kellogg again asked If ha considered
the business risky on such a showing and
, Mr.t Rockefeller 'again retorted that the
profits did not determine the risk, it was
evidence that the business was prosperous.
He absented to Mr. Kellogg's figures show
ing that the compmy earned $490,000,000 from
188 .to 1906. Adding the earnings of 1907
would give total earnings of $570,000,000.
, "Then where does' the hasard of the busi
ness come, in?'.' asked Mr, Kellogg.'. ;
"In' the; first place, "since the 'first re
finery was built mora than fifty years ago
we have been prepared at any moment, day
o? night,' to hear the fire alarm. We are
dealing with a very explosive product.
Fires are constantly occurring."
"But your profits were above your fire
losses, which have been charged to profit
and loss account."
, "Yes. "sir."
Mr. Rockefeller said another risk was the
peculiar construction of refining machinery,
which could be used for no other purpose.

NSON THORNE CO,
One could never tell when he would awake
to find the crude old supply exhausted.
Questioned A boat Rebatew.
, Mr. Kellogg then asked Mr. Rockefeller
about the Standard Oil agreement with
the Pennsylvania railroad In 1877, in which
the Pennsylvania agreed to pay back 10
per cent of the freight rates which the
Standard paid.. The witness said this
agreement followed the rate war between
the northern and southern lines, and that
there was an agreement whereby he was to
equalise the amount of freight distributed
between the different railroads.
Mr. Kellogg read the agreement which
showed that it provided that the Standard
Oil company was to ship 2,000,000 barrels
of oil a year. When the government
counsel asked If the other railroads be
sides the Pennsylvania made a like agree
ment for a 10 per cent rebate, Mr. Rocke
feller referred him to the men who con-
ducted the negotiations. ,
i , Replying to Mr. Kellogg's question
whether the Standard Oil company was the
Only one to get the rebates, the witness
said that the greater volume of business
given by the Standard was in part re
sponsible for the rebate and that in those
days It was the custom for large shippers
to receive consideration. "We aought to
, secure what all shippers then and now
seek," said Mr. Rockefeller. He did . not
recall what Daniel O'Day's connection with
thle matter was, but sald'Mr. ODay was
general manager of the Columbia Conduit
company, which was purchased by the
Standard in 1877.
Twenty Cents Barrel Paid. 1
Mr. Kellog then read letters of Mr. O'Day
to Mr. Cassatt of the Pennsylvania rail
road, in which It was stated that the Amer
ican Transfer company received a rebate
of twenty cente a barrel from the Lake
Shore road and it was requested that the.
Pennsylvania give the same rebate. It
was shown that the Pennsylvania did so.
"Don't you know that Mr. O'Day and
Mr. Cassatt both testified that the Ameri
can Transfer company the Standard Oil
company was not only paid a rebate of
twenty cents a barrel on Its own shipments,
but a rebate on the shipment of oil by In
dependent refineries?" asked Mr. Kellogg.
"My attention has been called to such
testmony," said Mr. Rockefeller.
Mr. Rockefeller said that he was presi
dent of the Standard and had general direc
tion of It at that time.
"Did you know of the contract whereby
he Standard was to obtain twenty cents
a barrel in rebate on outside shipments?"
"I may have known of It generally at
the time. I had nothing to do with the
Mind am Important Affairs.
The witness said he could not recall
whether Mr. Cassatt had testified that
these rebates were paid to the American
Transfer company. . His mind, he said, was
engaged In more important problems.
During the noonday Intermission Mr.
Rockefeller took to task the newspaper
reporters for printing bis maxims on the
care of the stomach.
"Don't you boys think you violated my
confidence?" he asked with a quisslcal
smile. "I. meant what I said for your
special benefit; but I suppose the advice
is good for everybody so I don't care very
Mr. Rockefeller then asked one of the
artists who had been sketching him to let
him sea the picture.
Forgets A boat Rebates.
Mr. Kellogg then read the testimony of
A. J. Cassatt in a case brought by the state
of Pennsylvania against the Pennsylvania
etruction of an independent pipe line for
those refiners who were unable to obtain
the same rate from the Pennsylvania rail
road as did the Standard.

general replied that the Denartment of

Replying to other questions Mr. Rocke
feller said he could not recall whether the
Standard Oil company controlled the Na
tional Storage company, which was the ter
minal of the Pennsylvania railroad at Com
munipaw, or whether he used those oil ter
minals from 1875 to 1881. He could not state
how long the Standard controlled the ter
minals of the Erie and New York Central
roads. Ha said he was In the western
office and that was a detail.
"Did not the Standard make the terminal
rate which was charged to the independ
ents?" "They were charged fair warehouse rates,
as provided In the agreement."
"But controlled all the terminals and
made all the rates?"'
"We would not have been so unwise as
to charge more than a fair rate."
The witness said that he had no doubt
that tha Independent companies had other
terminals in New York than those con
trolled by the Standard Oil company.
"But you assessed the warehouse and
freight charges against all of tha inde
pendents using your terminals?"
"Probably we did."
Mr. Kellogg asked whether the Standard
did not buy twenty independent refineries
prior to 1874 and dismantle many of them.
"I should think hardly as many as that. '

Soaih Improvement Company.
He said that the Standard had little to
say about the South Improvement com
pany, but participated in the meeting when
It was organised. Mr. Kellogg then read
the list of stockholders of the South Im
provement company and asked Mr. Rocke
feller about the agitation which follewed
the organisation of this company.
"I can hardly explain tha reason for the
excitement of those gentlemen," replied
tWae it not the enormous rebates that
the railroads were to pay?"
"It was probably due to misapprehension
on tha part of tha Independent shippers."
Mr. Rockefeller's attention was called to
tha agreement with tha South Improvement
company, the rates provided therein for re
bates on olL '
"Is it not a fact that all other parties,
according to this agreement, were to be
charged the full gross rate?
"Isn't It (hat feature that created the
excitement among the Independents?"
"It might have been one of the causes
but I could hardly recollect after forty
years all the causes."

AUTO PLUNGES INTO RIVER
Two People Drowned as Result of Ac.

CHICAGO, Nov. . Two persons were
drowned and six others rescued from the
water today, when an automobile in which
they had been speeding toward Chicago
swerved from its course at the approach
to the Torrence avenue bridge over the
Calumet river. .
The occupants of the machine were four
chauffeurs and four young women, all
living at 210S Armour avenue. The car
plunged over an embankment and struck
a platform fifteen feet from the shore, the
occupants being shot as from a catapult
into the water. The bridge tender and
three companions plunged into the water
and rescued three girls and helped three
of the men to reach shore. Joseph Meyer

President Gompers defended the editorial.
He asked why the only paragraph In the
editorial in which he had expressed an

the editorial is overlooked for he did make
number of charges. Mr. Gompers
charged that the socialists were trying to
disrupt the trade union movement.
He said that there never has appeared a
more severe arraignment of the officers of

has appeared in tha Cleveland Cltlxen,
