CHANGED IN NAME ONLY
l'rosecutor David Says Standard Oil
Company, of Xcw Jersey, Took
Place of Trust Which Was
Ousted by Monnett.
FIXDLAY, O.. Oct. 9. The suit of
the State of Ohio against the Standard
Oil Company of Ohio, in which the com
pany is charged with conspiracy afra.in.st
trade, began here today and progressed
at a rapid pace. A jury was secured in
less than two hours; the County Prose
cutor presented his case; Virgil P. Kline,
attorney for the defense, made answer;
G. H. Phelph, of the prosecution, then
read documentary evidence until the court
adjourned 20 minutes before 5 o'clock.
In brief, Mr. David stated to the Jury
that the Standard Oil Company became
a trust in 1SS2, and, although it had sev
eral times since changed the form of
its organization, bad not ceased to com
mit the offenses of a trust.
Denies Standard Is Trust.
Replying, Mr. Kline characterized as
mere matters of ancient history the re
lation of the original formation of the
trust. The Standard Oil Company, he
said, was a corporation controlled entire
ly by its stockholders; it was in no way
a trust; it could not be said that any
of the statements of Mr. David relative
to the early history of the organization
were true, but, if they Were, they were
not within the limits of Hancock County
and consequently, without the jurisdiction
of the court.
The documentary evidence which the
prosecution began submitting and which
constitutes the bulk of its case, is con
tained in a document authenticated by
the Supreme Court of the state as the
history of the Standard Oil litigation be
fore that body. It was all objected to by
the defense as irrelevant, but allowed to
go In by Judge Banker, presiding.
Jury Mostly Farmers.
The jury before which the case is be
ing tried is composed as follows: William
Sharp, farmer; C. O. Myers, farmer; Joel
V. Shuck, farmer; John P. Oman, far
mer; A. 1. Bailey, farmer; Judd Bushpng,
farmer; C. W. Damon, real estate dealer;
Ellsworth E. Huston, farmer; Grant Gib-
son, farmer; It. W. Bennett, farmer;
Preston B. Cathers, oil man; H. J. Rut
ledge, implement dealer.
History of Trust Agreement.
' What the state expects to prove against
the Standard T311 Company of Ohio was
told to the jury by County Prosecutor
David immediately on the reconvening of
court.
Never in Ohio, he began, had a Jury
been called upon to try a defendant for
the violation of state anti-trust laws in
the Probate Court. The evidence the
state would adduce, he said, would be
principally documentary. Mr. David then
gave a detailed explanation of the Valen
tine anti-trust law. He said:
"The Standard Oil trust was organized
In 18S2 by John D. Rockefeller, William
Rockefeller, Henry M. Flagler, H. H. Rog
ers, John Archbold and a number of as
sociates. The 'trust' was controlled by
nine trustees. This arrangement contin
ued for ten years, during which time 19
companies subsidiary to the 'trust,' but
controlled by it, were organized. In 1892
the total capitalization of the company
waa $102,233,700, with a surplus of $20,000,
000. Attorney-General Wilson, of Ohio, in
1892 charged that the trust agreement
made a monopoly and this was explained
by Mr. David. The trust was not then
in existence, and had not come under the
common law.
Lawyer Dodge's Scheme.
At a meeting of the board of stockhold
ers, of the trust, called to dissolve the
trust in compliance with the order of the
court, he said, there was present for the
company "a very great and learned law-
yer by the name of Dodge, who intro
duced a resolution formally setting out a
new plan of organization." In explaining
this new plan, which waa adopted, Mr.
Dodge was quoted by Mr. David as saying
to the stockholders:
Your Interest will be the same then as
now. Corporations will continue to do busi
ness as heretofore and your proportion of
their earnings will not be changed. Tou
will understand that A will not get stock In
one corporation and B In another, but each
will get his due proportion In the stocks of
all.
At this meeting. Mr. David continued.
arrangements were made for winding up
the affairs of the trust and liquidating
trustees were chosen, being the same as
the old trustees, whom he again named
Several years later, in ISM), he said, John
D. Rockefeller and the same trustees
were still controlling the policies and
business of the Standard Oil Trust and at
that time only about 60 per cent of the
trust certificates had been exchanged
under the terms of the Dodge resolution.
New Method of Evading Law.
The contempt proceedings instituted
against the trust in 18!)8 by Attorney-General
Monnett, of Ohio, but which the
Supreme Court of the state dismissed,
were here explained to the jury. It
' was during pendency of these proceed
ings, he paid, that another form was
given the organization. The Standard Oil
Company of New Jersey, was organized
as a "holding company" with a capital
stock of $110,000,000 and Increased cor
porate power, which Included the right to
buy. hold and vote the stock of other cor
porations. John D. Rockefeller, he said,
was the largest stock-owner and was
president of the corporation between the
years 1S09 and 1901. Mr. David said the
New Jersey organization issued $9S,000,
( of capital stock and purchased nearly
nil of the stock of the subsidiary com
panies. The work of selecting the Jury began
without delay. Prosecutor David accepted
tho llrst 12 men drawn. Attorney Kline,
for tho Standard Oil Company, however,
had the court excuse three of the 12 on
their statement thaC they had formed an
opinion in tho case.
New- York; against the American Sugar
Refining Company of New York for re
ceiving rebates from the Western Transit
Company; against the Delaware, .Lacka

ADJURED TO KILL REBELS
KUSSIAX LOYALISTS START TER
ROR IN ODESSA.
President of Union Makes Incendi
ary Speech and Action Follows
Quickly on His Words.
ODESSA, Oct. 9. President Dubro
vin, of the Union of the Russian Peo
ple, made a remarkable address here
today. He spoke to a band of 303
armed members of the union, who had
carried him on their shoulders to the
railroad station on his departure for
Kiev, and said:
"In the name of our beloved Em
peror I bless you. The holy Russian
cause is the extermination of rebels.
You know who they are and where
to find them. Clear the Russian soil
of them. The Russian people want
neither constitutions nor parliaments,
but orthodoxy and autocracy. Go
ahead, brothers; death to the rebels
and Jews."
After his train had left the band
of 300 rushed down the principal
streets shouting:
"Death to the rebels; death to the
Jews."
All shops were at once closed and
the Jewish population was in a con
dition of panic and terror throughout
the night. Measures taken by the
prefect, however, prevented further
disturbances.
RADICALS CONTROL PARTY.
Russian Democrats Will Urge Peas
ants to Boycott Army.
HELSINGFORS. Finland, Oct. 9. A
test vote at the Congress of Constitu
tional Democrats, now in session here,
has not been taken, but the Radicals
claim they have a working majority,
pointing out the attitude of the speak
ers, of whom 50 per cent advocate
Radical views. It Is not . determined,
however, how far the party will ;be
left to attend to the financial boycott
of the Government. The Extremists
advocate a bold appeal to the peasant
ry to refuse to enter the army during
the recruiting season, which opens this
month. The central committee today
was more strongly disposed to a com
promise In order to avoid a disrup
tion of the party, but apparently they
cannot hope to retain the Moderates.
Sixty speakers are yet to be heard.
Strike Against Court-Martial.
I.OBZ, Oct. 9. The men in all the
factories in Lodz went on strike this
afternoon because of the introduction
of the system of drumhead court-martial.

GRASPS LIP FORM
Mexican Laborer Finds His
Wife Dead on Train.
SEPARATED FOR MONTHS
Rebozo Covered the Woman's Face
and Five Children Cried at Her
Knees to Deaf Ears on Way
to Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES. Oct. 9. A distressing
scene was witnessed in the Southern Pa
cific depot this afternoon when the train
from Santa Ana pulled in. Jesus Valen
suela, a Mexican laborer, had been wait
ing for a long time at the station to meet
his wife Rosa and their five children.
They had been separated for months.
Not seeing the familiar faces in the
crowd of passengers alighting, Valensuela
climbed aboard the train. In the last
coach he found the children crying about
their mother's knees. Brushing them
aside, he caught the woman in his arms,
only to drop her limp form with a cry
of horror. She was dead.
No one knows when the woman expired,
but passengers recall the frequent indig
nant protests made by some of them be
cause the mother, during the ride from
Santa Ana- to Los Angeles, paid no heed
to the plaints of her children. A Span
ish rebozo that she had drawn about
her face prevented any one from seeing
that her features had stiffened in death.
THE GREAT RISTORI DEAD
Great Italian Actress Who Chal
lenged Rachel's Supremacy.
ROME. Oct. 9. The Marchesa del Grlllo,
better known as Adelaide Ristorl, the
celebrated Italian actress, died today of
pneumonia.
Adelaide Ristorl was born In 1822 at
Civldale, where her parents were stroll
ing players. At the age of 14 she was
playing in Francesca da Rimini, and in a
few years she became the leading Ital
ian actress, a universal favorite because
of her beauty and grace as well as her
talents. Her marriage, in 1847, with the
Marquis Capranica del Grillo (who died
in 1861), temporarily interrupted her dra
matic career, but after two years she re
turned to the stage, and appeared at
rome in Alfleri's tragedy of "Myrrha."
The French attack on the city caused
her for a time to desert the theater for
the hospital, where she employed herself
assiduously In nursing the wounded.
After having acted for several years at
Rome and Turin, with immense success,
she presented herself before a French au
dience In 1855, when Rachel was in the
height of her fame, a proceeding consid
ered as a challenge by the first Italian
actress to the first French actress. Even
In Paris she obtained a triumph, notably
in Legouve's Medea, which had been re
jected by Rachel. Two ot ner other great
roles were Schiller's Mary Stuart and
Glacomettl's Elizabeth. In London, in
1856, she met with great success as Lady
Macbeth. She visited the United State3
in. 1S66, 1SV5 and 1884-85.
Inventor of Barbed-Wire Fence.
CHICAGO, Oct. 9. Joseph H. Glidden.
the inventor of the barbed wire fence,
is dead at his home in Dekalb, 111., at
the age of 93. Mr. Glidden obtained the
Idea of making barbed wire fencing from
an exhibit made at a country fair in the
early 70's by a man named Rose, who
had driven some brads through a block,
which he then stapled on a wire. Glidden
improved upon this idea, and the barbed
wire of today was the ultimate outcome.

Harburger told the jury that before
coming into court this morning he had
been "abused and vilified by an impor
tant witness In the case." Continuing, he
said:
"The relatives and police ' believe that
Adams committed suicide, but the Coro
ner and J believe and expect to show to
you that Albert J. Adams was murdered,
and that the murderer is an Important
witness in this case, who will appear be
fore you." .

suicide.

tel: William Dunlevie, clerk at the An
sonia; Edward Mill, bellboy; G. W. Rob
bins and William H. Thomas, Adams'
partner and friend.

why a bellboy at the hotel had not been
summoned.

ner. "I shall have the subpena served
at once."

Women's Tailor Suits in Splendid Variety
Expressing the Newest Styles, $12.50 to $225
In so far as the accepted modes of the season are concerned the showing today lacks
naught of completeness but there are other interesting style features and values due for
mature consideration arriving daily. We ask the attention of Portland women particu
larly at this time to the Olds, Wortman & King '
Custom Fitting Department
In charge of an expert tailoress by whom all alterations are made. Ready-to-don apparel
here is equal to any, superior to most, custom garments for several reasons. Among oth
ers, later modes, more authoritative styles, more experienced and skilled workmanship, finer,
more elaborate and exquisite finish. Formerly the woman who would be modishly drest had
recourse only to a custom tailor.
She had only the fashion plates and rolls of cloth from which to select taking a long
chance of getting the garment she had pictured, but a good chance of getting an unbecom
ing gown, or wrap.
But OLDS, WORTMAN & KING have changed all this.
This store organized its Custom Fitting Department, engaged only expert fitters and tailors
who've had experience with the best houses in America. As a basis upon which to build
such an organization we already had what has been aptly termed a "STYLE STORE."
Foreign gowns and street costumes, with the sentimental value of the celebrated maker's
name attached, added to the regular intrinsic value of the gown, together with the import
duty, makes the price too high for any except the few. But at this store one may see many
reproductions of such garments at nominal, easy-to-pay prices, made possible by American
methods, and our immense output, which enables us to control such productions, from the
master hands of such renowned artistes as the world-famous modiste, Mile. Schroeder, and
others. You see all these productions made up; and you may try on as many different styles
as vou choose then select that which is most becoming, and the CUSTOM FITTER fits
your figure perfectly.
Expensive? No. The cost of this organization is spread over the thousands of garments we sell yearly, making the individual cost no greater
than the haphazard fitting. It's high time you were .selecting your new suit and coat for Fall and Winter wearing. Even tho the present mild and
beautiful days tempt one to continue with the Summer clothing, bear in mind that changes come quickly, and one should be prepared with the heavier
garb that the calendar calls for. Come in today, select your gown and have it properly FITTED.
