Ohio Has Begun Proceedings
Against Monopoly and
its Many Allies.
ILLEGAL PACT ALLEGED
Accused of Reducing Production,
Doubling: Price, Combining to
Maintain Price and Taking
Rebates From Roads.
TOLEDO, Ohio, April 28. Alleging that
the Standard Oil Company and 17 affiliated
companies have a secret trade agreement
by which they control production and
transportation of oil and gas. Prosecutor
1 M. W. Wachenheimer. of Lucas
County, today filed suit In the Circuit
Court asking revocation of their charters
and dissolution of the illegal agreement
and to appoint trustees for the creditors
Many Companies Involved.
In addition to the Standard, the
following corporations are 'named as
defendants: The Lake Shore & Michi
gan Southern, Toledo & Ohio Cen
tral, Hocking Valley Railroad Com
panies: Standard Oil Companies of Ohio,
Indiana, New York and New Jersey;
Buckeye Pipe Line Company, Solar Re
fining Company. Ohio Oil Company,
Northwestern Ohio Natural Gas Com
pany, Union Tank Company, of Pennsyl
vania; Indiana Pipe Line Company, of
Indiana: the National Transit Company,
of New Jersey; Pennsylvania Oil Com
pany, of Pennsylvania, and the South
Pennsylvania Oil Company.
Crimes Alleged by State.
In the petition it is alleged that the
production of oil was reduced for the
purpose of increasing prices to consum
ers. It is eet up that this reduction
amounts to 50 per cont. while the price
of gas to the consumer lias been Increased
100 per cent. Reference to the alleged
trade pact is sensational, alleging that the
companies made defendants have bound
themselves not to sell or transport oil or
gac below a certain standard rate.
Queries are directed In the petition to
the railroad companies' presidents, asking
them whether rebates arc given directly
or Indirectly to companies, and whether
the oil companies have been given pipe
line rights on the railroads.
State Is Real Prosecutor.
It developed today that Mr. Wachen
heimer filed the suits on behalf of Attorney-General
Ellis. This Is especially sig
nificant, together with the announcement
that the cases will be pressed with all
possible dispatch. The fact that the state
in behind the Toledo prosecutor In the
action gives It strength which otherwise
it would not possess.
Judge Shaufelberger. of the law firm of

Argument in Dr. Crapsey's
Trial for Heresy Ends.
CASE UNDER ADVISEMENT
Edwin M. Shepard Denies Heretical
Nature of Pastor's Utterances.
Good Faith of Defense Is
Called in Question.
BATAVIA, X. Y April 2S. The fate
of Rev. Dr. Algernon S. Crapscy, as a
clergyman of the Protestant Episcopal
Church, rests with his Judges. The
trial of the rector of St. Andrew, Roch
ester, on charges of heresy and viola
tion of ordination vows ended today
with tho final arguments of counsel
for the accused and for the prosecu
tion. The ecclesiastical court of five
members took the evidence under con
sideration and will render a verdict to
Bishop Walker of the diocese of West
ern New York on or before May 13.
Addressing the court in the morning.
Edward M. Shepard, of New York,
drew attention to Franklin D. Ickc"s
statement that Dr. Crapscy had denied
the Apostles' Creed, and said that Mr.
Locke had no right to appear In the
case. He said the administration of
justice In an ecclesiastical or civil court
Is fundamentally the same; that the
court is independent and supreme.
"In England," he said, "there Is a court
representing the whole church to pass on
matters of doctrine. We have no such
court In this country. According to the
canons it would appear to be the mind
of the American church that no court
should pasB on matters of faith and doc
trine until a final court has been estab
lished. Even in the time of the auto de
fe In Spain there was one Invariable rule,
which was that the man accused of heresy
should be labored with. In this present
ment, which only says that In the past
Dr. Crapsey has made certain errors,
there Is not a word to show that he was
labored with In any way before this case
was brought to triaL"
Continuing. Mr. Shepard expressed
his belief that the Catholic Church, by
which he, said he meant the Universal
Church for the Continent of America.
Is the Protestant Episcopal Church.
"It is to be, I believe." he said, "the
center of life and good living In every
community in our land. Expressions of
the English clergy were more heretical
than those uttered by Dr. Crapsey"
Ex-Chief Justice Stlness of Rhode
Island, for the prosecution followed
Mr. Shepard. Speaking for the prose
cution, he said It seemed that the de
fense was trying the case before the
nubile and not before the court.
"I have failed to see any connection
between the speeches of the defense
and the speeches of-ihe court," he. de
clared. "There has been one remarka
ble thing In this proceeding which has
led me seriously to doubt the good
faith of the defense, namely that It

Turkey, so Great Britain believes, occu

would obtain control ot the Gulf of Aka
hah. But Great Britain claims- that this
Is not the purpose of Egypt. The Sultan
contended that Tabah was within his
empire. This was disputed, but Great
Britain offered to submit the question of
the boundary to a committee. Turkey In
the meantime to withdraw her troops.
Turkish Claims Enlarged.
The Sultan declined this offer." but of
fered to negotiate with Lord Cromer, the
British agent at Cairo. The British gov
ernment acceded to this. but. when the
negotiations opened, tho Turkish Com
missioner at Cairo claimed half of the
SInal peninsula and stubbornly adhered to
his demand that half of tha peninsula,
which Is considered to be a buffer state
ot Elgypt. Is Turkish territory and that It
be given to the Sultan. The negotiations
were broken off. and tha Foreign Office
here will take up the case with the Porte.
Thus far no communication has been
sent to Constantinople on the subject.
Great Britain, ls said to be anxious to
learn whether the Sultan authorized the
Turkish Commissioner at Cairo to claim
half of the peninsula. This has been
found most difficult, as the British Am
bassador has been unable to see the Sul
tan, who Is either 111 or feigning illness.
Turkey's attitude Is the cause of much
Irritation here, and the government is
prepared to take ths most severe meas
ures to protect Egyptian territory.
Germany's Hand Seea In .More.
There are many theories as to what Is
influencing Turkey. The British Foreign
Office holds that the Turkish Commis
sioner at Cairo ls largely responsible for
the present situation, and that he prob
ably has beea led by German scientists
'and merchants at Cairo to believe that
Germany will support Turkey's aggres
sion. There appears, however, to be no
ground for seaw of the press statements
that Germany la actually so doing.
