Fty the terms of the proposition the em
ploje are to recelvi 21 cents an hour for
the first year. 22 cents for the second, 23

had the right and duty, under the tax
ferret law, to make an assessment. In
a dissenting opinion Judge Weaver states
that he had ben originally assigned to

In the general strll:e today centered on the
ability of labor unions to hold the striking
workmen together nud provent a break as
predicted by employers and the city au

some men did return to work after a

they say, of one weapon with which to

great Interest. This action" waa taken by
the Central Labor Union, which Is con
ducting the general strike, because the local
banking Interests are disinclined to Inter

and the Philadelphia Rapid Transit com
pany. Bankers seen today admitted that
this latest move would be a dangerous one
if It was to be unanimously carried out,
but they do not believe that the unions
will succeed In causing a very general
withdrawal of deposits. No apprehension
la felt in banking circles because the
greater amount of working men's deposits
are In saving fund institutions, which re
quire at least two week's notice of with

More Cars Are Operated.
The Philadelphia Rapid Transit company
operated almost its regular number of cars
today. Officials of the company announce
they have 500 men available to run their

today that it had employed 235 now men

Cheyenne Indian reservations relative to
the details of the bill introduced by Senator
Gamble looking to the final opening of
tha remaining Indian lands in these reser
vations. While not entirely pleased with
some of the provisions of the Oamble bill,
the Indians made no strenuous opposition
to them. In fact, they had given through
Major McLaughlin tacit consent to all its
provisions prior to the formal introduction
Into congress. The Standing Rock delega
tion seemed to be unanimously In favor of
the bill as drawn affecting the prospective
transfer of their remaining lands. As to
the Cheyenne delegation there was some
dissent over certain provisions, but In the
main these objections were of minor conse
quence and can readily be. overcome by
changing somewhat the preamble of the
measure. It la believed by those in con

PLEA .FOR OIL MONOPOLY
Final Fight for Dissolution of Big
Combine Before Supreme Court.
MHJBUBN OPENS ARGUMENT
He Admits that Mem Jersey Corpora
tion Owns Stork la Sabaldlary
Ompaslri Hari Competition
Mil Kot Destroyed.
WASHINGTON. March U.-Th final
fight for the disolutlon of the "Standard
Gil" began today before the supreme court
of the United States, when John G. Mil
bum of New Tork, spoke for three hours
In its defense. He will conclude tomonow.
The remainder of the day will be devoted
to the second step In the great contest, the
reply of Frank H. Kellogg on the part of
The hearing of tha suit against the
Standard Oil company attracted to the
court room, lawyers and spectators from
all sections of the country. Members of
both houses of congress foresook their re
spective chambers to hear what was to be
said In the review of the decreo of tha
circuit court of the I'nltwl States for the
eastern district of Missouri, dissolving the
Standard Oil company of New Jersey, as
a conspiracy In restrnlnt of trade and as a
monopoly In violation of the Sherman anti
Growth of the Unalneaa.
The greater part of Mr. Milburn s . ad
dress to the court consisted of a review of
tho growth of the Standard Oil company
with the object of laying , the foundation
for the claim that the corporations enter
ing into the reorganization of tho Standard
Oil company of New Jersey In ISM were
non-competitive, becausa for many years
they had been under a so-called common
ITe told of the tremendous size of the
business of the Standard Oil company and
explained how It had grown, according to
his conception. He said large factors In
this growth were the building of pipe Unes,
"which anybody had a right to build," as
he described It; the building of refineries
and the extending of the marketing facili
ties throughout this country and the entire
"We compete abroad with great cor
porations," he said, "that are protected and
shielded by their governments and com
ipelled to combine so that ihey may be
powerful. We have been able to meet
them, because of our strength."
Standard Owns tne Stock.
Mr. Milburn then outlined briefly the
argument on which the defense relies so
largely, that the properties of the com
panies that went into the Standard Oil
company of New Jersey tn 1S99 were owned
by the same persons who owned the
Standard Oil company of New Jersey after
its organisation and In the same proportions
and hence was not competitive at the tlmo
the Standard Oil company of New Jersey
Justice White Interupter Mr. Milburn,
asking If tha Standard OH company of New
Jersey was the only stockholder of the
subsidiary companies. Mr. Milburn said It
"How does that affect the existence of
the subsidiary companies," Inquired tho
"The question has not arisen," was tha
reply. 4 '
"But it arises right here." Justice White
said. "In , Louisiana,"1 for instance, if 'the
stockholders aia reduced' to' less than 12 It
goes 'oSit1 o( 1 existence'." - : '''!
Mr. fcfllburn said the 'court "vould be told1
the orgarifsiitlon 'of the Southern Improve
ment company in V"2 was " the beginning
of the allowed conspiracy. As a matter of
fact, he nald, Mr. Rockefeller hud no confidence-
in that organisation, but went Into
it merely to avoid offending railroad men,
who wished to settle rate troubles.
In answer to Justice Day, he estimated
that 87 to 80 per cent of the oil refining
business was in the-hands of the Standaid
Toward the close of the day he entered
upon a discussion of the Sherman anti
trust act. He said Inasmuch as the ci' cult
court had held that the mere method of
organization wa aa conspiracy to monopo
lize and had not considered the alleged
monopolistic conduct, he felt an embar
rassment about discussing whethe; they
violated the law.
"You discuss them In your briefs, do
you not?" queried one of the Justices.
"Oh, yes," was the response.
After a discussion of the general meaning
of a monopoly, ha reverted to the alleged
mcnopolistio conduct ot the Standard OH
Mr. Milburn said he did not think that
the corporation waa In restraint of trade,
In view of the "common ownership." It
had never restrained the liberties or capital
of anyone who has entered into it, nor
anyone who was its competitor, he as
serted. Instead of bc!rg a monopoly, it
was urged by Mr. Milburn, that the amount
of business it was doing was decreasing.
Question by Harlan.
Justice Harlan asked Mr. Milburn if ha
would call an organization of men to buy
all the coal lands in Pennsylvania a con
spiracy in reBtr&Int of trade and monopoly.
"The question you put Is one difficult
of solution," responded the -jounsel. Ho
explained to the court that ho was really
getting "out of his line of business" in
"I think you are in your line" said Justice
"Well, the Sherman law ia very Interest
ing," observed Mr. Milburn. "Napoleon
complained that the laws' did not lend
themselves to the imagination, but he had
never read the Sherman anti-trust act."
Finally Mr. Milburn took up the charges
of monopolistic conduct as alleged to have
been shown by transportation discrimina
tion. He declared the idea that railroads
throughout the country would discriminate
in favor of a business that afforded only
half of 1 per cent of the total traffic, was
preposterous. He said the government cries
of tremendous discriminations in favor of
the Standard Oil refining points and
against the independent refining points.
"No independent refiner since 1KK7," he
added, "when the Interstate Commerce act
was passed, has complained to the Inter
state Commerce commission of discrimina
tions." Denies t'nfalr Competition.
He spoke of the alleged unfair competi
tion. "Competition does not breed the vir
tues," he said. "It is the lower nature that
comes uppermost, under such conditions,
you know. But are we to be held re
sponsible for all the acts of our em
ployes?" "Out of 87.000 towns In which the Standard
OH company Is located," he aald. "the
record showed complaints of unfair compe
tition from thirty-seven. An example of
those who had complained of competition
was one ex-employe who had explained ha
quit tha Standard Oil company because of
lis bad moral Influence on business. This
man, It was said, took with him files of
tha Standard OH when he quit Its service,
snd these flies were used by the govern
ment In the preparation of the case."
As o th charge that Standard OH men
corrupted railroad officials in order to
obtain Information aa to lis competitors'
business, he asserted that employes found
doing such would be discharged. Kxperl-
enre had taught he. Standard Oil, he said,
that It had to be more xlrtuoiis than nu at
When the court adjourned for the day
Mr. Milburn was declaring that no com
plaints by ' Independents had ever been
made of the Standards control of Its
trunk pipe lines. He told the court he
would conclude his remarks In about tun
