of Ready Market Before He
Handled Big Issue.
ON STANDARD MAN'S WORD
Secretary Veit Asked if Trans

Kdgar L, Marston, of the nanking
firm of Blair & Co., of No. 24 Broad
street. was the star witness .esterday
nt the hearing in the suit of H. C.
rieroe tu estublish his eontentlon thnt
the Standard Oil Company has not been
The banker said that ln Aprll he was
called on the telephone and asked to
come to No. 2<i Broadway. where he
met H. <\ Folger. jr., president of thfl
Standard Oil Company of New York.
and another man, whose name he de
clined to diselose. The ammymouf per
aon said the Standard Oil Company of
New York deslred to dispose of S3..WO.
000 bonds of the Security Oil Company
of _**___ and lmplied that there would
be 8881 liule difhculty in gettlng rid of
the bonds. They were flrst morttrap^
bonds, the wltness testifled, and a part
of a $10,()<>?,irOo isstie. Mr. Marston
said he was told that about |8>000*OOQ
of the eame issue were held by the
Colurnbla Trust Company aa security
for a loan of $2,500,000. Mr. Marston
sald that without making the usual ln?
vestlgatlon he agreed to take the bonds
The wltness testifled that he was
called on the telephone on Aprll 12
and Informed that Jesup & Lamont,
brokers at No. 26 Broadway, would
take $2,400.1 nm? of the bonds nt Mftfc.
In leas than four days after that L. C.
Lodyard took .?.'.(ki,iani at the same
price, and wlthln a few daya C. M.
Pratt took $2."*0,O<rO and G. W. Hark
ness $400,OOH. all at 96%.
Mr. Marston was R.sked lf he did not
know that Mr Harknesa and Mr. Pratt
were directors of the Standard Oil
('ompany of New Jersey and that Mr.
Iatdyurd xwag counsel for the Standard
Oil Company. Mr Marst-.n smiled and
replied that he had read in the news
?apera that such was the case.
Only $17,500 Profit.
"lt would appear that you made only
f?17,."?00 ln thls transaction." said Sam?
uel Untermyer. "That 16 e rldlculously
small margin, lt ls not?"
?'Well. we usually make more than
lhat," admitted the banker.
Such a sum ls hardly enough to
re.-ompen.se your lawyers ln such, a
deal, is it?" continued Mr. Untermyer.
Well, lawyers do come hlgh," re
BptBMlfl- Mr. Marston.
"Then we may assume that the only
n-aron you undertook the tranBaction
was that you knew thut the bonds
j.ractically were Fold before you bought
"I would not say that," aald Mr.
Marston. "Of course, I had a pretty
good Idea that I would be able to tlnd
a market for them."
Mr. Untermyer's next question was
frank. He sald: "If you were buylng
those bonds you would not have taken
them on the assurance of some one
that they were rlfcht without havlng a
lawyer examlne them, would you'.'"
"That ls correct," said Mr. Marston.
"Then. Mr. Marston, you slmply acted
aa a 'go-between'?'
"It was a regular purchase and sale,"
sald Mr. Marston, "but I would not
have twitered Into the transaction had I
not received good assurance that I
would find a market for the bonds."
"Dld you take the word of John D.
"No," sald Mr. Marston; "I would
rather not tell you who he was, but I
wlll say that he was one usually re
ferred to ae a lender ln Standard OH."
Competition In Brazil.
Rlchard C. Veit, secretary of the
Standard on Company of New York,
admitted that the Standard ull Com?
pany bought oil from the security eom

company and the New Jersey company
competed for buslness, but he could not

Thlrd. that Hecker prot4Wted the slay- '
era. In that regar.l the people wlll at?
tempt to sIk-w that Heker kept sll.-nt
ahout the wholo affair and BB-BBB-d the
l.lentlf. ..f the alay-ra to thut extent.
Scheppa Is expected to testify that hewas
aheltered ln Heck.-Ca home followlng the
ahootlng and that he had .oiiv-rsatlons
wlth Hecker whlch wouhl ahow that the

The testlmony of these witnesses aa to
