.NEW,. YORK. Sept 21 -Charges that
both tha spirit and letter of the decree
dissolving the Standard On company of
New Jersey are being violated, were sent
to the Department of Justice at Washing
ton today by S. W. Fordyce, Jr.. counsel
tor tho Waters-Pierce Oil company.
The charges are contained Id a memor
andum submitted by Mr. Fordyce and are
based on the testimony adduced at hear
ings in New York and elsewhere in the
litigation Involving-the right of the Stand
ard Oil to same officers and directors of
the Waters-pierce Oil company, v
"So far as we have proceeded with our
' testimony," declares Mr. Fordyce, "we
have Shown that every subsidiary com
pany Is absolutely dominated and con
trolled by ' the majority owners of - tho
Stock. ,c the Standard Oil company of
New Jersey, and that the same men who
were put In these : subsidiary companies
at the time of dissolution by .the leading
men in the New Jersey company were all
re-elected at the subsequent annual meet
ing by the proxies held by the principal
stockholders of the Standard Oil com
pany of New Jersey. We have also shown
that there has been" no real or substantial
difference in the method of doing busi
ness 'of any of these companies since the
8M11 a. Holding. Company.
Mr. Fordyc further asserts that the tes
timony has proven that the Standard Oil
company of New Jersey Is still a holding
company and owns - and controls many
oil companies engaged In . Interstate and
foreign commerce, and 'that it , has used
at ' least , two companies the ., American
Petroleum and Deutsche-Amerlkanlshe
Petroleum Gesseilschaf tto, f. assist ... int.
.. maintaining the control of tho' Texas re
fineries, against, which the, TJnte4 t$tf
obtained a decree. . : '"- v' '
Th'Tewu.y0'Mrl.JMr. Fordyce sets
forth, were consolidated liaflef the ftsme
bf tho'HagnoUA Pelrbleum company. In
which, according, to .testimony, Jo,fc4 D.
Archbold and H. T. Folger, Jn, areifarge
stockholders, and whose ponded Indebted
ness was until .recently held; by the
Standard Oil company of New York. .
''It is significant,", says MrV Fordyce,
"that the New York company continued
to hold the bonds of the Magnolia com
pany until April, 1912, when the Investi
gation of the Department of Justice had
. thready commenced.'' ". V
; Juggled aocounts" are mentioned by
" tha attorney In connection with loan
transactions involving Messrs Archbold
and Folger ltt ownership of the Magnolia
mpany,,-;: p "
' , " "The action of tho New York , oom
nanv." Mr. Fordyc? TOntlnues, 'In lend
ing money to Mr Archbold, president of
vth New Jersey company, ana we raci
that Messrs. Archbold and Folger, the
presidents of the two most Important and
most potentially competitive companies
are borrowing money from the New York
company on Joint account, Indicates a de
. elded degree of harmony In the manage
nient of these companies. . -
Same Dl virion of Territory. '
"It has been proven." Mr. Fordyce fur
ther charges, "thatthe marketing com
panies that were formerly subsidiary to
the New Jersey company, and , the New
Jersey company Itself, maintain with ut
most strictness the territorial division
that they had before the dissolution. It
has been proved that they supply their
marketing stations from the refineries
most advantageously located to such sta
tions, regardless of the ownership of
these refineries. We have also shown
that the pipe lines are. managed for the
common; use of all -the subsidiary com
panies and no others, and. that the Union
Tank line has practically Identical con
tracts with all the supposedly independent
companies, all executed on or about the
. tamo date."" '
Other actions, which, while taken prior
to the date of the supreme court's decis
ion, "were intended to and did limit and
to a 'certain extent nullify the effect of
the decree," Is cited la the memorandum.

Petitions for Taft electors now being
circulated in Nebraska are taking well
and are getting many signers in all parts
ot the state. Already many of the sheets,
filled with names, are being returned to
republican state headquarters at the
Paxton hotel. Secretary Amos Thomas
Is urging all who are circulating peti
tions, to send them In before October 2,
as, according to UAj law, the petition
must be in the hands of the secretary of
state by October S.
James H. Woolley, an attorney of
Grand Island, who Is circulating one of
the petitions, writes to headquarters in
part as follows.
"Yes, you can depend on it, I am for
Taft. I believe he is the greatest presi
dent since Iincoli;: In my opinion there
is less excuse for changing administra
tions than there has ver been. I was
recently In Wyoming, Montana, Utah
and South Dakota, and also In Illinois
and Iowa. I was surprised to find the
lack of Roosevelt supporters in Montana
and throughout the west And there
are throughout the west at least two
big industries tliat are strongly opposed
to Wilson, the sheep Industry and , the
Johnson's Talking Futile.
"I heard Governor Johnson at a rail
way station In Iowa and. from remarks
In the audience I was convinced that
two-thirds of the auditors were either for
Taft or Wilson and the majority in my
Judgment were for Taft. You can rest
assured that in spite of any boasts made
by Rosevelt supporters Taft Is gaining
every day, Immensely both In : Illinois
and Iowa, and I feel perfectly satisfied
such . is the -case in - all the western
states." ' , --d, - . " '
Charles W. Meeker, an attorney of Im
perial, Neb., who circulated a petition,
sent it In yesterday accompanied by
letter in part as follows! t . ,! ? ' ,
; "I Could have secured several times ai
many signatures to- this petition if I had
had time to get out with it -The condi

but now are solid for Taft, and every day
more are coming back to hlra. ,

v;"J find that there are a 'few definite
points on wnich the Taft opposition rests.

that Roosevelt agents went south to

them that after all it is only, one HAn,
Roosevelt, and he neither, a member ot
the credentials committee nor in the con
vention, who Is crying ' 'fraud .thief and
'robber,' while a few are echoing him, It
causes all opposed . to Taft . to Mop and
think. ' . v " ;
"Another charge is that Taft Jtas done
nothing. When we once sho his record
and bring his achievements property be
fore the people a wonderful change will
be brought about before the flection In
