LINCOLN. .lHn. 11. Special. Senator
II. A. Cox of Kearney enjoys a distinction
unique In the fact that he Is the only re
publican on record who ever asked W. J.
Bryan for an endorsement. Incidentally,
he failed to gel It. When Bryan was
campaigning at Holdrege last fall he made
the h'tatement that if both candidates for
the legislature in that district had signed
statement No. 1 he would prefer the man
who favored ecunty option.
Cox. It seems, had not yet signed the
statement, hut he sent the ' "Peerless" a
note declaring tils willingness to sign and
asking Bryan to endorse him In his speech.
Rut the eloquence turned loose did not in
clude Mr. Cox, for Bryan thought a
promise to sign waa not enough, fox
finally rose right up in meetin' and de
manded that Mr. Bryan carry out his
threat of endorsing a county option re
publican, but Bryan sarcastically refused.
Cox. however, has a seat In the house,
and that Is what he was after.
While the house committee on commit
tees was meeting In the Lincoln hotel Tues
day night the spectators In the lobby were
amused at the frequency with which some
member or other would come down In the
elevator, trot over to the desk telephone
and call up some adviser. The discussions
over the phone were always in a low sen
tentious tone and the face of the mem
ber would always grow less worried and
mora confident as ho talked. Usually the
men who telephoned were drys and It was
whispered about the lobby that one
brother of the peerless leader, whose first
name Is Charlie, was the man whose ad
vice was being continually asked.
Representative Gait, from Clay county,
wants to put a serious stumbling block In
the way of the Industrious and enterpris
ing reporter. He has introduced a bill,
house roll number 31, (authority for thla
statement Is the Journal of tha thirty-second

lature, page three, for January 11. l'.Hl,
which may be found by consulting Henry

voted to discussion of the Moon bill for
the codification of the laws relating to the
judiciary. The ..bill was still under con
sideration when the house adjourned.
Both the senate and house will meet to
morrow. Senator Gallinger in his address said In
"This bill alms to break up this monopoly
through the power of an Independent
American competition In new high class
steamships, built for the auxiliary naval
service and operated under rigid contract
with the government. The purpose of the
bill has the express approval of President
Taft. the State department, the Postofflce
department, the Navy department and the
Department of Commerce and Labor."
When Mr. Gallinger had finished Sena
tor Hale predicted that he measure would
pass the senate without difficulty. Senator
Rtone, while not so optimistic, declared
ha would Interpose no objection to Its pas
sage. The bill then went over without
further action. Mr. Gallinger expressing no
desire for an Immediate vote upon It,

Responding to a request from Senator
Albert J. Beverldge of Indiana. Senator
Julius Caesar Burrows,, chairman of the
committee on privileges and elections, today
refused to permit the naming of a day for
taking action on the case of Senator Lorl

Mr. Beverldge urged early action because
of the congested condition of the calendar.
Mr. Burrows replied that while at the
proper time he would not stand In the way
of a vote he could not consent to naming
a day now, when no senator supporting

FINAL STAND OF OIL COMBINE!
Argument Begins in Supreme Court
millbuhn opens for defense
History of Unit for DUsotnfloo of tne
Dig Corporation Which "Marled
In . l.nnU Konr
Inn A .
WASHINGTON. Jan. 11 The final fight
of the Standard Oil company for Its very
existence under the present tirganliation is
expected to begin late today In the supreme
court of the t'nited States.
The argument In the tobacco dissolution
suit is expected to be concluded about half
an hour before court adjourns, according
to the agreement entered into hy counsel
John O. Mllburn then will lay before the
court the foundatkin for the, defense for
the Standard against the proposed dissolu
tion' under the Sherman anti trust law.
The suit under the Sherman anti-trust
law to dissolve' the Standard OH organisa
tion waa Instituted In I'JOtJ in the circuit
court of the United States for the eaatern
district of Missouri. The proceedings were
begun by the Department of Justice In
the name of the United States against 114
corporations and seven Individuals.
The principal corporation was the Stand
ard OH company of New Jersey. From
18S2 to the present tjme this company Is
said to have operated refineries Itself,
but In 19 Its stock waa Increased to
1100.000,000 so aa to enable it to acquire the
stock of nineteen other oil coompanies,
which In turn owned a large number of
companies, concerned In the oil business.
The Standard Oil company of New Jer
sey was designated as a holding company
and Is similar to the American Tobacco
company,' the organisation of which was
considered by the court during the last
Seven Individuals nnird.
The seven individuals named In the suit
as defendants were: John D. Rockefeller.
William Rockefeller, Henry N. Flagler.
Henry H. Rogers, John D. Archbold,
Oliver H. Payne and Charles M. Pratt.
The part these men are said to have
played in the alleged violation of the Sher
man anti-trust lawjias been summarized
by the government as follows:
About 1870 the Rockefellers and Flagler
conceived the purpose of controlling the
petroleum trade, both domestic and ex
iKjit, and obtaining a monopoly thereof.
They entered Into a conspiracy to accom
plish this purpose, which from time to
time took the form of various combina
tions. Shortly after 1S70 the Rockefellers
and Flagler were Joined In the conspiracy
by Rogers, Archbold, Tayne and Pratt.
The fdrm which the alleged conspiracy
took Is described by the government as
being from 1870 to 1SS2, "a combination
between a large number of manufacturers,
who acted in harmony and whose stock
Interests were pooled In the hands of three
trustees in 1879." From 18.S2 to 18S9. the
form of the alleged combination was that
of a trust agreement wherehv the stock I
of a large number of corporations was
placed In. the hands of trustees, who man
aged the property. From 1899 to the pres
ent time, the combination is alleged to
have taken the form of a holding com
pany, the Standard OH company of New
Decree of Circnlt C'onrt.
The four judges In the circuit court found
that the; Standard OH was an Illegal com
bination In restraint, of Interstate com
merce and was also monopllzing the oil
trade. A decree was entered enjoining the
holding company from exercising any con
trot over the subsidiary companies, and
enjoining the .subsidiary companies from
paying any dividends to the holding com
pany. All were enjoined from engaging
In Interstate commerce until the Illegal
combination was discontinued.
The court also found that the Standard
