SiTANOARD OIL, DICTATING
OAS RATES IN N. Y,
"ALL TRAFFIC WILL BEAR"
; Gas Companies Let Coal GaS,
Plants Go to Ruin, Thus
IS THERE A CONSPIRACY?
Standard OilofN.Y. and S. O.
oT N. J. Seem to Play Into
Each Other's Hands.
" Increased use of automobiles, and
K&sellna cnclneu and extension of oil
burjilne systems for heating and
driving ships and locomotives have
taado possible tlie boosting of gas
rat's to fl.M In New Vork City, ac
cording to Col. William Hayward,
ceilBeel tor the Public Service Com-
'SttsUbn In the gas rate oases.
Col. Uayward has cumpiled evi-
. denko to show that In the final analy
sis $t Is thi Standard Oil Company
ttmi fixes ens rates and not the Con
solidated Gas Company. This ovi-
dectee will be used In future proceed
Inge for the fulnc of an oinolal rate.
This situation has come about
thrffutb the Standard's control of the
oil 'market and development of gaa
ptaata tor making oil gas at the ex
pense of the coal gas plants. Now,
according to CoL Hayward and his
(utsovtate, Major John Uolley Clark
Jr., peculiar market changes have
mode It more profitable for ' the
Standard Oil Interests to pay less ul
leetOa to thetr gas oontjuny holding"
tmOi leave them to their own devices.

lit the Sls It was, found that the
reewlue, or Intenufcdlate" oil was

With the advent of the automobile
i and; later the popularity of the gas
engine, the demand for gasoline forced
this product into the loading position
or on proauots. aasoune was ex
tracted from tho "gas oil," leaving n.
residua still useful for gas making,
but' much Inferior to tho "Intor--taHate"
'rka war Dorlod. with its Dressing
demand for fuels, brought perfection
J -.f a method of still further refining
by subjecting the oil to terrific heat

TVxitlmony In the gas suit by Wal
ter tiddeks, a Vice President of tho
ConsUlldatMl and in charge of bit) Ing
the g& oil tuner I9(H, shows the posi
tion .H" the Ooosolldated at) a lu
tomer. Mr. Atfdlcks teetlflcd that he
lMil wt.'ltten letters to compalnea
ither tiHO the MtanUard Ull com
piny of New Jersey, from when 'lie
O-msolld.titid buys, but had reoo.ved
iu favonihle ofTera of oil. He domed
that he ".had written these letters
"perfunctorily," but sld he did no

WHY CONSOLIDATED IS AT THE
MERCY O.F STANDARD OIL.
In 1917-1HS. when the Consolidated
.vas paying 5 ftents to 6.86B cents per
allon to the tiandard Oil Company
of New Jersey, the Public Servlre
Oas Company, operating plants In
New Jersey, waa paying tho Gulf lle
flnlug Company 3.06 cants, plu
lighterage whloti brought the total
cost up to a maximum of 3.50 cents
The llrooklyn Onion Oas Company
while Uio d'onsolldated was buying
from the Standard Oil Company ft
New Jersey, wrote asking that com
pany to quote prices on gas oil. The
llrooklyn Union had been buying
from the Standard Oil Company of
New York. Mr. Addlcks wrote to the
Standard Oil Company of Now York,
among the companies ho asked to
quote for tho Consolidated.
The Standard Oil of New Jersey
tnplled to the llrooklyn Unlun that It
had no gas oil available for that
company. The Standard Oil Com
(any of New York Informed tho Con
solidated that It had no got oil avail
able for the Consolidated.
Thereafter, according to Major
Clark's records, the Standard Oil of
New Vork bought from the Standard
Oil of New Jersey. 51,000.000 rmllpn-
at km o.i, nnougii to run tne Brook
lyn I'nlon for about n year. This oil
or Its eqti'valent, which the Standard
of New Jersey refused to sell to thi
llrooklyn union and then fcold to th
Standard OH of Now York, the
Standard of New York thoreupon
sold to the Brooklyn Union.
As each cent In the gallon price of
oil repreente 4 centa In tho prlco of
1.000 feet of gas. Col. Hayward do
"lares It really is the "ndard O
that d'etates the prlco of gas. The
Standard can afrom to be indeponu
unt. because one gallon of gas oil
under the "crat'Ong" proceed, will
oroduce half a gallon or gasoline
This actually 1 wprth more on the
market than tno gallon or gas c:i
Tor thl reason, Col. Hayward ani
Major Clark beljeve. tho Standard
Oil la lon'ng Interest In gas com
panies and Is collecting "all the
trafilc will bear" until tlie companies
are forced back Into the coal gun
