sign this , warrant, which at the same time was the death warrant of the
most important provision of the charter. That was upwards of a year wh,oh naturally allied with and fos

William Rockefeller, who by reason
of ' hla vast wealth and Standard Oil
connections is a powerful factor In the
world of finance, was born In Tioga
county. New York. May 31. 1841. He
was educated in the Oswego academy
and the public schools of Cleveland. At
the age of 17 he left school to become
a bookkeeper for a miller. A year or
two later." he formed a connection with
a rival flour mill, and at 21 he became
a partner in the concern. In 1864 he
went into the oil business In a modest
way with his brother. John D. Rocke
feller, In Cleveland. , The brothers, with
one. or two associates, built a little re
finery, which tht-y called the Standard
Oil works. Just after the civil; war
William went to New Tork to act -as
eastern agnt for the Cleveland refiner
ies.' In 1870 the old partnership was
dissolved and Its place waa taken by
the Standard Oil company of Ohio, with
a capital of $1,000,000. The present
company was organised in 1882 with
William - Rockefeller as president Then
came the Standard Oil company of New
Jersey, commonly called 'the trust Of
which William Rockefeller was made
vice president Since that time he has
