MAKE IT THOROUGH
President Asked to Broaden
Standard Oil Inquiry.
OCTOPUS PREPARES DEFENSE
Kansas Congressman Urges That
Texas Be Included In Government
Investigation Standard Will
Resist to Utmost.
"WASHINGTON', Feb. 20. Rerpresenta
ile Campbell, of Kansas, the author of
the resolution providing for :tn inquiry
Into the operations of the Standard Oil
Company, had an extended conference
with President Roosevelt today reerafd
lr.fr the investigation. He informed
tho President he had received from the
Bpeaker of the House or the Texas Leg
islature a telegram urging him to re
quest the President and the Depart
ment of Commerce and Labor to extend
the proposed inquiry to tho methods of
the Standard Oil Company in the Beau
nont field of Texas. He also told the
President he had received hundreds of
lelegrams and letters daily from all
isectlons regarding the investigation.
The Standard OH Company, Campbell
Informed the President, already was
preparing its defense, and would resist
to tho utmost the Government's investi
gation. The resumption by the com
pany of the purchase of Kansas oil, he
Eald, undoubtedly was decided upon in
view of the action taken by the House
of Representatives in requiring an in
vestigation. It would not surprise him,
either, if the price of the crude oil
should be advanced gradually on ac
count of the present agitation.
The President will have a conference
coon with James R. Garfield, Commis-
loner of Corporations, who will direct
the inquiry. At that conference a gen
eral plan of procedure in the inquiry
will be mapped out.
President Roosevelt assured Mr.
Campbell that all of the power of his
administration necessary would be used
In the investigation he is undertaking
through the Bureau of Corporations
Into the affairs ojt the Standard Oil
Company, to the end that the small
producer, dealer and consumer alike
Bhall have fair treatment;-and at the
same time no injustice shall be done
the Standard Oil Company, or any other
"The President realizes," said Mr.
Campbell, "that this is the most impor
tant investigation, of the kind which
has been undertaken, and he is going
Into it with the determination that It
shall be as thorough and successful as
the machinery of the Government can
make 1L He wants nothing but exact
Justice and fair play, cut is determined
.to have both."
TWO MORE OIL BILLS TO PASS
Kansas May Also Order Investigation
and Annulment of Lease.
TOPEKA, Kan.. Feb. 20. On account
of a small attendance of members, the
Kansas House today deferred consider
ation of the anti-discrimination bilj un
til next Friday. The Holdren bill, pro
hibiting the pumping of gas, will be
considered by the Senate this week. -It
Is conceded that these bills will pass
ami this will end the battle for the oil
produoers, so far a3 legislation is con
cerned. The anti-discrimination bill is de
signed to prevent tho Standard Oil
Company from underselling the state
In any one locality unless the rate there
Fhould be the rate throughout the
state, and its friends asserted that it
would undoubtedly be passed and be
come a law.
The fact that the Judiciary commit
tee of the House was not ready to re
port is one reason why the bill went
over, and another is that the House
desires to find out what action the,
Senate will take on its railroad bill.
There is a growing feeling between
the two branches that may result In
Kansas may make an independent in
vestigation of the Standard Oil Com
pany's operations in this state. The
Legislature may also make demands of
Congress regarding Indian Territory oil
Senator F. Dumont Smith has pre
pared a resolution providing for the
appointment by the Legislature of a
committee to investigate the charges
filed with the Commissioner of Corpo
rations at "Washington by the repre
sentatives of the Kansas Oil-Producers'
Association. Tho leaders in the Legis
lature have planned also, it Is said, to
demand of the Kansas delegation in
Congress that the Foster lease on the
Oswego reservation in Indian Territory
be annulled, on the ground that it is
the intention of the Standard Oil Com
pany to discriminate against the Kan
Fas field by securing all the oil It -needs
from this territory.

JOHNSON CHARGES BRIBERY
Mayor of Cleveland Makes Direct At
tack, and Inquiry Is Ordered.
CLEVELAND, O.. Feb. 21. In the City
Council last night Mayor Johnson directly
charged Councilmen Dcwar and Wilke,
Democrats, with having accepted bribes
from the Cleveland Electric Illuminating
Company. At the same time he charged
that the votes of all the Republican
members of the City Council had been
Influenced by contributions from that
company to the last campaign fund of the

The charges are the outcome of Mayor
Johnson's allegations of two weeks ago,
that the recent defeat of the ordinance
to annex the village of South Brooklyn
to the City of Cleveland had been brought
about by undue influence. At last Monday
night's meeting of the Council the Mayor
repeated his statements of alleged brib

names. His accusations were denied with
much emphasis by several of the Re
publican Councilmen and specific charges

ATTACKED BY IRISH
Balfour's Government Meets
FLIRTED WITH HOME RULE
Redmond Leads Vigorous Attack,
and Wyndham Explains Mac
Donnell's Devolution Scheme,
Which Was Disapproved.
LONDON. Feb. 20. in moving as an
amendment to the address in reply to the
speech from the throne, the declaration
that "the present system of government
(of Ireland) Is opposed to the will of the
Irish people," John E. Redmond led the
Irish party in the House of Commons to
day in an attack that contained for tho
Conservative Ministry more of menace
than lay in the fiscal debate Hast week.
The Redmond amendment was carefully
calculated to undermine the government's
majolty. The debate drew crowded gal
leries, and peers especially were noted,
among them the Duke of Abercorn. It
was generally believed that tho debate
would bring out a sensational scene, but
anything of this character was lacking.
Mr. Redmond's speech was an uncom
promising demand for home rule. It was
necessary, he said, to emphasize the fact
that tho Nationalists were irrevocably
committed to home rule, because there
was an attempt to limit the decision at
the coming election, and to smother the
issue. The present system was ruinously
extravagant and Inefficient, and was dis
trusted even by the Unionists. Ireland,
he declared, "Is governed by a bureau
cracy more devoid of responsibility than
the bureaucracy of Russia, which Eng
land is so fond of denouncing."- Armed
revolt would be justified, if a chance of
Both Mr. Redmond and 'Mr.' Moore (Irish
Unionist), who followed, made, a special
point of what they termed the '"shameful
treatment" of Sir Anthony MacDonnell in
connection with the differences in the
Ministry over the devolution scheme.
Mr. Wyndham delivered a straightfor
ward explanation of how those unfortu
nate misunderstandings arose. He said he
had given McDonnell a free hand to deal
with the situation. He knew that Mac
Donnell and Lord Dunravcn had been
considering a reform scheme, but he did
not know all the terms of their plan. Mr.
"I had often discussed reforms with
MacDonnell, who found analogies between
my Ideas and ideas he had formed in
India. Here we came to the first source
of serious misunderstanding. I, with Ig
norance of Indian affairs, did not know
that a semi-elective council exists in In
dia, and therefore it never occurred to
me that he had in mind any board par
tially elected as- part of the reforms' of
which I approved. If I had thought he
had any such idea, I would have told
him that it was, in my judgment, quite
Mr. Wyndham said the Cabinet never
had doubted MacDonncll's loyalty, but
simply had recorded itself as not approv
ing the action of an under-secretary who
had approved of a scheme without first
submitting it to his chief.
The night session was taken up by T.
W. RuBsell, Winston Churchill and oth
ers, who bitterly assailed the govern
ment's management of Irish affairs.

today gave judgment In favor of King
Leopold in the protracted lawsut Institut
ed by his daughter, the Princess Steph

of Princess Louise of Saxe-Coburg and
Gotha, claiming that they were entitled
under the Belgian law to half the prop
erty of the late Queen Marie Hcnriette
and to half the King's property on the.
death of the Queen. The lower court de
cided that King Leopold's marriage con
tract, which provided for separate es

was confirmed by the Appeal Court.
