Oil King's Appearance In Court
Brings Out Record Break
ing Crowd.
John D, Proves To Be Poor
Standard Oil Company of New Jer
sey Made (loud Slum ins Dur
ing '01 anil '().'.
Chicago, July S. John D. Rocke
feller occupied the witness stand in
the United States District Court Sat
in jay, Vr'hilc Judge Landi3 plied him
with questions regarding the llnan
cial baching and business and meth
ods of the corporation of which ho Is
the head. Rockefeller was a very
willing and equally unsatisfactory
witness. He was ready to tell all
he knew, out he said ho knew prac
tically nothing. The not results of
his testimony was that ho believed
during the years 1904 and 1905, the
period covered by the indictments on
which the Standard Oil Company of
Indiana was recently convicted, the
- dividends of the Standard Oil Com
pany of Now Jersey were approxi;
mately forty per cent, of tho out
standing capitalization of $100,000,
000. Tho investigation held today by
Judge Land Is was instituted by him
for the purpose of determining
whether or not the Standard Oil
Company of Indiana which .was con
victed of violation of tho rebate law
was really owned by tho Standard
Oil Company of Now Jersey, or
whether tho Union Tank Line, whoso
cars aro used for shipments, made
in violation of tho law was similarly
owned; and also to obtain an Idea of
Uio financial resources of tho con
victed corporation in order to inflict
a fine proportionate to tho offense
and assets of tho convicted company.
It was stated by tho officers of tho
Standard Oil Company of New Jer
sey that it owned a greater part of
tho stock of both the Union Tank
Lino and Standard Oil Company of
Indiana. Specific figures as to the
earnings of the parent corporation
were given by C. M. Pratt, Its secre
tary, and they were close to the esti
mate given by Rockefeller.
Tho prospect of tho appearance in
court of tho man reputed to be tho
richest man in tho world brought
about a spectacle the like of wli'-H
has never been witnessed In the
vicinity of tho Chicago court room.
Tho hour set for Rockefeller's ap
pearance was 10 o'clock, and an hour
before that time tho hall outside tho
court room door was densely packed
by tho crowd, all of whom were
anxious to hear tho testimony. A
large squad oi deputy United States
marshals and a number of pollco
were on hand, but ovon they were
unablo at times to control tho crowd.
Rockefeller, attended by flvo local
detectives and several secret service
men to protect him from chanco
cranks, was conducted to the court
room shortly after 10 o'clock. Ho
was shown to a seat to the left of
tho Judge's bench, and was well up
nto tho room before his presence was
noticed. There was considerable ex
citement, and some confusion result
ed from tho efforts of the spectators
to obtain a close view. He looked
around with some curiosity and then
commenced a conversation with his
attorneys. Before tho hearing of
tho Standard Oil case Judge Landls
disposed of several minor matters.
When tho case was called, the Stan
dard Oil attorneys camo forward to
tho judges' desk and made an ear
nest plea that Rockefeller bo excused
because ho could give no Information
that could not better be obtained
from some other source. The Judge,
however, refused, to vacate tho sub-1

Was Poor.
Tho game at Coquille Sunday was
exciting and full of interest, and the
trip from the Day hugely enjoyed,
notwithstanding a tedious wait at
Cedar Point for the Bandon boat
and tho defeat that fell to tho -lot
of the teams from tho Coos Bay
towns. Tho train bearing tho clubs
of Marshfleld and North Bend with
a contingent of rooters left shortly
after S o'clock, and speeded to Cedar
Point without incident. Here the
North Bend delegation, headed for
Bandon, embarked on -the steamer
Liberty, the Marshfielders continuing
by lail to Coquille and missing the
pleasurable river trip which the de
lightful day afforded.
The Coquille game was called
about 2:30 p. in., and a fair crdwd
assembled, the local brass band turn
ins out to add to tho enUvenment
of tho occasion. Some delay waaj
experienced in procuring an umpire.
Earl Goodman, of Coquille, was
finally engaged, and though he made
5orne mistakes that in most part were
expensive to tho visitors, ho umpired
a very fair game. Jay Mahoney, of
Marahfleld, acted as official scorer.
In, tho first time at bat Marshfleld
failed to bcore, but Coquille was
more fortunate in its initlul try-out.
Coquilli pitcher ana receiver, Col
lier and Peralta, were both at their
best, and their suppoit was also gilt
edged. It was Marshfleld's day off,
thi3 fact being apparent from the
start. The boys, with the exception
of Hi Wright (always right), and
possibly one or two others, lacked
their usual vim and expertness, and
tho result was a score of 8 to 2 In
favor of Coquille.
However, good feeling prevailed,
and our boys have pnly praise for tho
manner In which they were treated
during the day.
George Ferry got his base onco by
getting a delivery from tho box in
tho solar plexus. The pain didn't
annoy him half as much as did tho
taunts of tho Coquille youngsters,
who had pins and marbles, and even
peanuts, staked on tho triumphant
homo team. Bert DImmlck's long
nursed "pet" behind tho ears pre
vented his "rubbering" at the grand
stand, but didn't interfere with some
good sprinting and bat work.
Tho Coquillo boys appeared for tho
first time in their nobby now uni
forms, a light grey.
Tho Marshfleld players are unani
mous In praising tho' work of Pitcher
Wright, and acknowledge his support
was anything but encouraging to a
slab artist.

San Francisco, July S. The sen

tial completion of the work of select
ing a jury to try Vice-President
Louis Glass, of the Pacific States
Telephone Company of the first of
the ten charges of bribery of the
supervisors were the features today
n the graft proceedings.
The sentencing of Schmltz was
one of the most dramatic scenes ever
witnessed in a western court. Judge
Dunne delivered a fearful denuncia-
! tion of the prisoner, Schmltz inter-
I ruptlng many times to demand that
the "humiliating remarks" be desist
ed from and that tho' court do its
duty by pronouncing tho sentence at

Depositions From San Fran
cisco Show Many Incon
gruities In Testimony.
Marked Thinning Out In the
Believed That End of Famous Stcu
" ncnbci'g Murder Case Is Not
Far Dlbtnut.
Boise, July S. Part of the San
Francisco depositions dealing with
the Biadley explosion were read to
day to the jury which is trying Hay
wood for life on the charge he mur
dered former Governor Frank Steu
nonberg, and tho balance will be
presented tomorrow. Tho reading
began directly after court sat, with
Clarence Darrow and Senator Borah
alternatng for their respective sides
and although they pressed ahead as
fast as possible, the summing up
made at the adjournment showed
that much of tomorrow will be con
sumed by the unread affidavits. Tho
depositions have an important bear
ing on the case, but they contained
no interest for the crowd, the at
tendance belli;; tho lightest since the
Both slde3 seemed satisfied with
the showing made by the depositions
and thtj contents will probably fur
nish much material for the directly
opposed contention.
Tht State counted it a victory that
Fred. Bradley had receded from his
first and positive statement that it
was a gas explosion aud is orepved
to believe that the bomb might have
been used. Bradley's flvst state
ment was made before he know of
Orchard's confession or any of tho
other evidence locating Orchard in
tho vicinity of his house.
The prosecution Is also plp.ised to
have it shown that while Bradley was
still Inside tho door, when rho ex
plosion occurred, tho particles of
glass from tho door, hairs from tho
rug that was outside tho door, and
pieces of stone and cement from tho
mosaic floor of tho estibule were
blown into his body. It may be con
tended that this shows conclusively
that tho explosion was from the out
side, and could not havo been caused
by gas from tho Inside ot tho house.
Tho defense, on tho other har.d, is
satisfied that tho depositions show
that It was impossible for Orchprd to
havo reached the vestibule and
placed the bomb in tho manner and
time described by him. Tho evi
dence, particularly tho explosion,
shows a gas leak was tho cause.
That there wore not two explosions;
that Orchard's testimony as to his
movements In tho rear of tho build
ing when ho claims ho poisoned tho
milk is shown by physical conditions
to bo false.
Matter of vital importance to
Coos Bay will bo taken up by tho
Marshfleld Chamber of Commerce to
night. The meeting will be opened
at 8 o'clock and an important feat
ure will bo a talk by C. A. Smith re
garding tho deepening and widening
of tho channel and the prospects for
building a modern hostlery. It is
tho earnest desire of the members
of the Marshfleld Chamber of Com
merco that everybody Interested in
the advancement of Coos Bay attend
the meetng. Tho heavy financial in
terests which Mr. Smith has on tho
Bay and the deep personal Interest
which ho takes in all matters affect
ins ltq welfare give added woight to
any plans which he may forward.
