In the oiirhmise He, 1-icd Alleged
Different Grade nf Oil Were Sold
From the vjine Tcuk.
Washington', June 9. The industrial
jomuiissiou resaiued its investigation of
tru-ti, the Standard Oil company re
ceiving especial attention. Mr. 'W. EL
Clark of Ohio, who until last February,
was employed by the Standard Oil
sompauy in various towns in that state,
but v.is then suspended, testified that
while employed at Marietta the Stand
ard had ousted other companies Irom
business by competition and then put up
the price of oil. He said that eight
nominal grades of oil were void out of
only two tank-, the fanccr being turned
in "different directions for different
grades. This was done, ho said, under
instructions from the managers for the
Standard company, Messrs. Matthews
and Holiiugswortb.. Mr. Clark also said
that the comjuuy bought and- sold tur
Ieutine, but before soiling it would put
six or seven gallons of gasoline in each
barrel of turpentine.
At Columbus, Mr. Clark was the cash
ier of the Standard company. At that
point, he said, much oil was adulter
ated. For instance, miners' oil was
made by mixing in a little cottonseed
oil. Here the Standard company started
what was called the Shoemaker Oil
compauv. This was a purely Standard
establish inenr, lie testified, its men
being paid by the Standard company,
but it -was made to appear to be an in
dependent concern, and was used as a
At Springfield, Mr. Chirk said, he was
a wagon salesman and the instructions
there were to get trade regardless of
the price. Somo refined oil was sold
as low as 4 cents aud hero also as many
as four nominal grades of oil were taken
trom one tank. Rebates wero made
when necessary. When ho had spoken
to the management of the dishonesty
of these pr.ictke, Jio had been told that
it was not lot him to say about such
matters, but to do wliat he was told.
At Urbana, he said, he was manager
for the" Standanl company. Here a
competitor as driven out by a threat
to fores the price down, to 1 cent a gal
lon. The competitor afterward went
to the poorhousf. Witness for a time
was manager at Newark. Here the
work was very hard because of tho
range of prices. There were 25 differ
ent figures used there. One man would
get oil for 7 cents while his next door
neighbor onld pay I)1, cents. Rebates
also were given to especially favored
patrons. These were made under the
instructions of Mr. B. A. Mathews, as
were all changes in price or terms.
The witness testified that at Ncwaik
the company bought a building from
over a leaser's head, who was doing a
competitive business and Mr. Clark,
with other men, went into tho building
in the absence of the competitor, loaded
the building on carts and carried it
away. For this he (Mr. Clark) was
complimented and was to have been re
warded with a two weeks' vacation,
while tho competitor was so frightened
that he went out of the business. Tiiis
was not accomplished, however, until
all his customers had been located by a
boy employed to follow his wagon on u
At Newark a customer wanted oil
from Cleveland. He was satisfied by
supplying him out of a barrel painted
red and marked as if from Cleveland.
He received the same oil, however, that
other people got.
The witness said that laborers for the
Standard company were generally paid
76 cents a day, and that they worked on
an average of 12 hours a day.
There was, he said, often a difference
of 2 cents a gallon in tho prices of oil
between places where there was compe
tition and places where there was none.

"Now, there are some sharks down in
the south Atlantic that don't like to
find themselves too near the equatorial
waters, and yet they want to have plen
ty of room to prowl. They've got the
temperature of water that suits them
best figured out to a nicety, and they
know that on the other side of the equa
torial line there's jnst as good water,
and water of the same degree of tem
peratme, as that in which they're fool
ing around when they get to thinking
on this subject.
"Well, what do they do when they
get to worrying over the cramped space
in which they find themselves on one
side of the line or the other? Why,
they jnst make a dash across the line.
That's all. They know that the equa
torial line is a trocha of water that's a
heap too hct for their constitutions and
that they can't stand monkeying around
in the water on that line too long, and
so they just hop over it, licketty cut. so
fast that you can't see their fins for
"I remember once, when I was on
the old Ticouderoga, a thing happened
that gave ys h line on the speed of
sharks wheu they take it into their
heads to get speedy. We got into the
port of Montevideo one morning at 10
o'clock. It was on a Monday, April 12.
Montevideo harbor is full of sharks, and
the men forward got to fishing over the
side for them in order to get their spines
to make walking sticks of them. One
huge man eater was landed after great
difficulty with the combined strength of
the whole watch on deck, and he had to
be clubbed with belaying pins and cap
stan bars for an hour before bo gave up
and cashed in.
"Well, we cut him open, and, gentle
men, what do yon suppose we fonnd
inside of him? Why, as fine a gold
watch and chain as yon ever saw in
your lifel Not an ordinary minute and
second hand watch, but one of those
watches that give the date, the day of
tho week, the phases of the moon and
the whole thing. Well, sirs, you can
imagine our astonishment when we
snapped the case of this watch open
and found that it had stopped at exact
ly 4 p. in., April 11, the day before we
got into Montevideo.
"Tlie skipper of our ship reported I
this fact to the townspeople of 'Monte
video when he went ashoifl feeling con
fident that some prominent citizen Qf
that town had inadvertently permitted
himself to be made a meal of by an
epicurean shark. He naturally conclud
ed that the victim must have been a
prominent citizen to pack such a swell
timepiece aronnd with him. Nobody
was missing out of the population of
Montevideo, and the thing looked al
"Well, we remained m tho harbor of
Montevideo for six weeks making re
pairs, and in that time tne shark and
watch incident was practically forgot
ten. We were just upon the point of
pulling out for" northern waters when
the British ship Cardiff, 'from Pernam
bnco, Brazil, put into Montevideo. The
Cardiff's mate was in command, and
ho had a queer story to tell of how the
command had fallen to him. It seems
that on April 11 the skipper, returning
to the ship from Pernambuco in his
long boat, had slipped in stepping on
to the float leading to the ship's gang
way tind fallen into the water. Before
the boat's crew had a chanco to pull
him back into the stern sheets there
was a swish and the skipper was being
packed off in the jaws of a gigantic
"You'll remember that this happened
on the afternoon of April 11. Well,
there wouldn't have been anything re
markablo about this if the mate in com
mand of the Cardiff hadn't happened to
mention that the skipper had a valu
able watch on his person when tho
shark got him. Onr commanding officer
heard about this, and he looked up tho
mate and asked him what kind of a
watch it was. The mate exactly de
scribed the watch that we had taken
out of the shark's stomach in Monte
video on the morning of April 12, and
when our skipper showed it to him he
instantly identified it.
"Now, all that anybody who doubts
this has got to do iu order to find out
how many thousand miles Pernambuco
is from Montevideo is to measure the
icale on tho atlas of South America.
That shark only-hit the high places in
jumping from Pernambuco to Monte
video, and if there's any donbter of this
narration here present, why, here's the
shark's spine," and No. 18 of the Liars'
club held up a 25'cent malacca stick.
