Standard Oil Faces -$68,C00,C00
Washington, June 3. Penalties
may bo impoped upon the Standard
Oil Company that will make the
$29,000,000 fine of. .vent memory
appear paltry when plans under
way by the Department of Juption
are carrit d out.
Preparations are being made
now in Chicago by District Attor
ney Sims, directed by Attorney
General Bonaparte, for the return
ing of a new prosecution that may
cost the big corporation 08,000,000
if the maximum fine is imposed.
It is understand that the pi nni

The last line was imposed for
1,462 cases of rebating. The new
case will involve over 3,400 counts.
New York, June 3. More than
2.000,000 words of testimony have
been taken already in the Govern
incut's suit to dissolve the Stan
dard Oil Company, now on trial
before Special Examiner Franklin
Ferriss. Before the hearings close
another million words doubtless
will be added This is said to be
the largest mass of testimony ever
gathered in a single case for the
perusal of a court.
Butte (Mont.), June 3. The
statement that the number of
- words (2,000 000), taken 'in the
suit now being heard before a
United States Court Commission
in New York to dissolve the Stan
dard Oil Company, is the largest
on record, is erroneous. In the
lMiss "smoke case" now before
Judge Hunt in the Federal Court
of Montana the transcript contains
6,500,000 words. '
De Chaulnes Died
New York, June 4. "Instead of
dying, as some people had it, after
a return from an opium den, the
Due de Chaulnes passed away
kneeling beside my daughter in
Theodore Shorts, who returned
here to-day, told tha -dramatic
story of the death of his son-in-
law, the Due de Chaulnes, in Paris.
"My daughter was perfectly
happy," he said. "I had been op
posed to the marriage at first, but
afterward when I found out how
happy they were I was glad I had
given my consent.
"On the afternoon of the day he
died, the Duke and his wife went
driving. They returned to their
hotel late and went to their apart
inents. Dinner was served to them
there. Afterwards, about 9 o'clock
they prepared to retire. As had
been their custom since their mar
riage, they knelt side by side to
say theiB prayers.
"They had scarcely knelt when
a slight choking sound made my
daughter look up. Her husband
had fallen1 forward on the bed. He
was unconscious. My daughter
seized him in her arms and tried
to lift : him. His body slipped
through her arms to the floor
With heroic courage she bent over,
got her arms about him, and
struggling desperately managed to
lift him to the bed. Then she ran
to the door, sere." ied for help and
came backj to t-ae the body of her
husband in her arms again. The
servants rushed in and a doctor
was procured, but it was too late
The physician said the Duke had
expired almost instantly.
"When I saw my daughter
feared for her reason. I had begun
to fear the worst when one day
two weeks ago, she broke down and
wept violently. Then I knew that
all was well and she would recover
Mrs. Shonts will remain with
my daughter in France for some
time to come. A child will be
born and it is best that the mother
should be with her daughter dur
ing tne coming months, rso peo-
pie could have-been kinder than
the family of the Duke. The
have done all they could lor my
daughter." . .
Beetles Climb for
Dinner of Moths.
Boston, May 1". A beetle that
can climb a tree gjp nn unsus
pecting caterpillar and never lot go
until he lias devoured the hirsute
insect, has been propagated by ex
ert entomologists in Maesnehu
tts. T his beetle is to be Used in
the warfare against the gypsy ami
brrwntailed moths and the Legis
lature of that State will be asked
for $300,000 to cover thu expenses
of the campaign. The State sup
pression of insert pests says that
80.000 of these ferocious beetles
have been let loose during the week
and 20,000 more will be liberated
in a few days.
This action represents the latest
and most scientific method of deal
ing with a problem which has
caused an expenditure of many
hundreds of thousands of dollars
in Massachusetts and other New
England States during the last de
For the last two year experts
have been engaged in propagating
the parasites. The headquarters
of this work has been in specially
constructed buildings ut Melrose,
where scores of different varieties
of moth eating insects have been
received from collectors sent ti
Europe for that purpose.
The parasites so for selected work

ways. The large cnlosoma beetles,
as well as two other species closely
allied to them, climb the trees,
seize the caterpillars and never
let go until they have devoured the
The scientists say there is every
reason to believe that in time these
parasites will accomplish the sup
pression of the Egyps'y moth here,
as they have in Europe.
Jw Angeles, June '1. three in
dictments, containing 2il counts, on
which it is liable to a fine of more
than half a million dollars, were re
turned against the Southern Pacific
ailroad yesterday by the Federal
grand jury. The true bills cover re
bates alleged to have been granted
by the Southern Pacific to the I'enn
Fruit Company of Riverside, the
Harris-Newinark Company, a big
hide shipping firm of Arizona and
California, and three Chinese im
porters of San Francisco.
According to the indictments the
Southern Pacific grajitcdthc rebates
during 1900. The refund was given
the Penn company on fruit sent
East. The llarris-Newniark Com
pany obtained a rate ten cents less
than its competitors on Arizona
hides sent to San Francisco.
Chew Pack, Sun Wing Wo and
Kwong Wo were the Chinese who
received rebates on shipments from
Hongkong and thence East, accord
ing" to the indictment. They obtain
ed cut rates on consignments of
Chinese wines and Ix'ans received at
San Francisco and shipped over tin
Southern Pacific to Ixis Angeles.
I he L inncse cases involve the
point whether the government shall
exercises control over foreign goods
received at a port within the same
State as the destination.
The Penn Fruit Ctunpany has
packing house at Riverside accessible
to both the Southern Pacific urn
hanta re lines. During the year
190(5 it is claimed that the fruit com
pany purchased a large amount
fruit at Arlington, o.i the lino of the
Santa Fe and shipped it over the
hitter's ' track to the? line of the
Southern Pacific for which servit
it paid local freight to the Santa' Fe
At the end of the season it is allege
the Southern Pacific paid back to
tht' Penn Fruit Company iO'jx
cent of the cost of hauling tlu
orange referred to from Arlington
For making this payment the rail
road company is charged with r
Spraying Roads by
From the emrinocr of the city of
.ristol, J'.nuhmd. comes a strong
indorsement of tar-spraying as a
means of keeping down the dust
and reducing the cost of niain-
i.ancc of highways. In view of
the steadv incense in the number
f automobiles, of which there is at
iresent no pi n of any abatement,
the question of oiling or tat ring
roads is of paramount importance.
n the recent experiments in Eng-
nnd it was found that the best re
sult were achieved when the
roadj v ere in good condition and
the sut; face had been worn to a
compact, smooth face.
The city engineer reports that
the tar, after spraying, penetrated
to a depth nf half an inch ami
ormed a watertight kin, which
bed the: newly-fallen rain rapidly,
nnd speedily dried, when a storm
was over. An immediate result
was that the amount of labor re
quired to clean the roads was
greatly reduced For purposes of
companion, the tar on several
roads was laid on by hand but it
was found that the results were
not so satisfactory as when the tar
was forced against the surface in
the form of a fine spray. All the
reports was made to the engineer
were unanimous in stating that
the tar process had effected a con
siderable saving on the cost of re
pairs. Thus on one stretch of road
which- would ordinarily have re
quired this yearn new coating of
broken stone, it was found' that
where the surface was broken, a
few patchings, sprayed with tar,
proved to be sullicient repairs. In
the case gf another section, treated
in 1907, the surface is this year
"as good as ever." Ordinarily, a
new coating of stone would have
been necessary on this road in
1909; but it is considered that if
the tar-spraying is continued, no
repairs will be required, before?
1910, in which case there will have
been a saving in cost of main
tenance and repairs of fifty per
cent. Particular note should be
taken of the fact that after the ap
plication of the tar, the roads so
treated required no watering be
fore the road wa.i swept, beyond a
slight sprinkling in front of stores
and other buildings. Adjoining
road.?, on the other hand, which
hud nou been tar-sprayed, had to
be watered on eighty-nine days of
