The Standard Oil Company objects to the Oregon law re
quiring a test of 56 degrees specific gravity, because there is not
the profit in making this qualitf of gasoline, that there is in mak
ing the distillate it now turns out as gasoline. And having a vir
tual monopoly of oil, the trust is enabled, not only to raise the
price as it pleases, but to create a shortage, and punish states that
refuse oWdience to its decrees by refusing shipments.
It will be remembered that the Standard Oil Company once
sought to rule Texas and was barred from operating in the state,

HELPED MOST TO WIN WAR
Speaking in the United States senate yesterday, Senator
Thomas of Coloi-ado declared that as chairman of the military
affairs committee, Senator Chamberlain contributed more than
any other senator to the success of the war program.
"I know he lived for nothing else," said Thomas, "and de
voted his days and many of his nights to the discharge of his
duties. His ceaseless vigilance and enduring service have justl-
nea tne connaence of his people as governor and senator. He
has served his country too long and too well to retire him now.
.In saying this I do not mean toinsinuate that the presidents
telegram was intended as an attack upon him."
Senator Jones said : "I believe the senator from Oregon was
more responsible for our boys being at Chateau Thierry when they
were than any man living." Senator Fhelan also paid him a de
served tribute. ; ;
If any senator ever earned re-election. Senator Chamberlain
has. If any senator ever deserved the gratitude of patriots, re
gardless of party, it is Senator Chamberlain. If any senator de
serves honor by his party in his state, it is Senator Chamberlain.
No man does his duty, as he sees it. without mnkinir enemies

to make himself a vital force in the nation's affairs, can escape
