HARD TIMES AHEAD
For tho Stamdard Oil Octopus 11
Department of Justice Signs
May be Relied on.
Congress Expected to Adjourn by
June 10--Inventors Complain
of Dilatory Mothods In
OTAaitmrvrojJ D. C. Mav23, 1000
It Is a little early to forecast tUc
chances of prosecution against the
Standard Oil Company, but prepara
tions In that line arc being made
though with great secrecy. It will be
remembered that the report ot Com
missioner Garfield on the oil business
dealt only with the railroad transpor
tation. There arc several more Instal
ments of that report They will deal
with the pipe lines, with the foreign
oil business of this country and with
the business and competitive method.,
of the Standard in the United 8tatcB.
It is very safe to say that when all the
facts arc ready the Department of
Justice will proceed against the com
pany cither for violation of the
Elklns law or the Sherman anti-trust
law or both. There was enough Bhown
in the report already suomtttca to
make out a caseunderthc Elklns law,
though some of the worst phases of the
discrimination by which the railroad
companies favored the standary was
done strictly within the law and on an
open rate basis. It lb said that the
arraignment of the company In the
later section of the report will be even
worse than the first, and that the
prosecution which Is almoBt sure to
come will be one of the moat sensa
tional legal battles ever witnessed In
Senators, Members of Congress, the
Commissioner of Patents and many
patent attorneys arc hearing dally
from Inventors througnont the coun
try In bitter complaint at the delay of
their applications for patent. The
Patent Olllcc was probably never be
fore so far behind with Its work. In
some of the divisions from five to eight
months must elapse under present
conditions before an application that
has been filed can even be looked at
by the Commissioner of Patents aB
represented by his corps of more than
one hundred principal and assistant
examiners. There Is no good excuse
for this condition, and the Commis
sioner of Patents Is mainly to blame
for It. Other Commissioners have
kept the work well In hand by com
pelling the examiners to work extra
time, and this compulsion, of course,
has the etlect to make them work In
regular time. The reason that the
work Is bo delayed now Ih because they
do not work and have not been work
ing In regular time. They read the
papers, smoke and gossip while the
Inventor Is consumed with anxiety
waiting for his patent. Par from
causlnir the Government a cent the
United States Patent Olllcc, the larg
est In the world pays Its own way and
Is a source of revenue to the Govern
ment. The fees paid by Inventors
making application for patent pay all
the expenses of the Institution and
bring a surplus to the Public Treasury
which now amounts to several mil
lions. No wonder there is clamor on
the part of Inventors against this In
There has been a series of confer
ences between Secretary of State
Root and the Senate Committee on
Foreign Relations with a view to
cleaning up a number of pending for
eign questions, especially with Great
Britain. There are the fishing dis
putes oil New Foundland, the north
eastern boundary question, the frlc
tlon.on the Great Lakes and several
other matters that are constant
causesof friction though none promise
to be very serious. The worst cause
of offense was removed when the
Alaskan Boundary dispute was termi
nated In London three years ago. But
the decision of that case was so dis
tasteful to Canada that it makes It
almost certain that there will never
again be any direct negotiations be
tween the Canadian government and
this government for the settlement
of disputes. One of the redeeming
features of the situation Is that It
probably means the demise of the very
"Joint High Commission" which
worked for several years without any
effect except to draw large salaries
from the respective governments.
Fow, however, it Is likely that several
of the questions at Issue will be settled
directly by diplomatic negotiations
between tnis country and Great
Britain. But Mr. Root wants the
assurance that any treaties he may
negotiate will be put through by the
Senate and not killed as was the case
all the reciprocity treaties and a num
ber of other important measures that
the President has lately sent to the
Adjournment by June 10 Is now the
prospect before Congress. At least
that Is the way Senator Aldrlch sized
up the situation after his visit to the,
White House in the middle ot tue
week. It was the first time that lie
had been to the 'White House for
about three months, .and after nearly
an hours' conference with the Presi
dent he gave this as his opinion ot the
situation. He said that tuere was
only one question In Congress that
promises to produccmuch delay. That
was the type of the Panama Canal.
The Bcnatc has announced Us convic
tion that the sea level type will be
the proper one. The President and
the House arc both committed to the
lock level type, and It is possible that
there may be a prolonged wrangle
when the matter comes up for settle
ment. The other matters, Senator
Aldrlch thinks, can be disposed of In
short order. There Is not much llkll
hood of delay over the Pure Food Bill.
It Is thought that the measure will ne
passed this session, though there arc
strong Interests against It and they
will use all their Influence to emascu
late the measure so that It will be of
no effect or else to prevent any action
at all. It Is thought that the Free
Alchohol Bill also will be passed at
the present session, though some of
those who arc In a position to know
used to keep it from coming to a vote.
The conferees on the Statehood bill
will cither come to an agreement on
the measure within ten days or else
agree to let It die for the session.
And as the Santo Domingo treaty is
practically dead and the Speaker Is
willing to adjourn, there seems no
reason why Congress should not get
away by the middle of June.

GORMAN ADJUDGED GUILTY
Of Keeping A Piaco In Violation of
tho Boal Law.
ChaB. Gorman was found guilty by
Mayor Costello, Tuesday, of keeping
a place contrary to the Deal local
option law. The trial occupied all
of Monday and Tuesday, a large part
of the time being taken up by wrang
ling of attorneys over the admission
of evidence and law points. The chief
evidence of the prosecution was the
whiskey, gin, brandyt etc., seized by
the officers In their raid on Gorman's
place on May 12 Officers Lyle and
Moore testified, where it was found
and described the location of the
building, etc. The different times at
which Gorman received shipments of
liquor was Bhown by the books of the
B. & O. agent.
Hubert Pcrccns, a young man whose
home is in Cincinnati, was a very un
willing witness for the prosecution.
He was here a week at the time of the
last Bcal election and was In the em
ploye of the local temperance people
trying to secure evidence against the
saloon keepers both as to illegal sell
ing of liquor and bribery of voters.
He tried to secure liquor from Gor
man and failed, but on Saturday,
April 21, bought a bottle of whiskey
lrom a man named Dunlap, which waB
given him In McAdams & Gorman's
Pcrccns was to have appeared be
fore the grand jury last Friday at 0 a.
m. but Sheriff McMullen failed to find
him and serve the summons until 11
o'clock; consequently he did not ap
pear. On Saturday evening Judge
Ncwby Issue a writ for his arrest and
was brought here Sunday by Sheriff
McMullen. Attorney Robert A. Black
of Cincinnati, followed on the next
train with a writ of habeas corpus
Issued by Judge J. B. Swing, of the
Hamilton County Common Pleas
Court. After a conference with the
local ofllclals, Attorney Black did not
attempt to serve his writ. Pcrccns
tcstlllud before the grand jury Mon
day and on Tuesday charges of con
tempt of court were heard before
Judge Ncwby, who held that the sum
mons was Invalid owing to late
serylec and discharged the prisoner.
He was Immediately given a summon
to appear before the Mayor where he
testified as stated above.
The defense put on four witnesses to
show that the room in which the
liquors were seized by the officers had
not been used since February 22 until
the day of the seizure. On that day a
stock of drugs was moved In and a
drug store Is now In operation there.
The seized liquors were made a part
of the evidence and arc still in custody
of the officers. A motion for a new
trial waB made and will be argued

Ho Says Local Gravel Will Not Build
Roads "Firm, Smooth and
Convonlont for Travel
at all Seasons.
The following letter, which will be
found self-explanatory and will un
doubtedly Interest the public of
county, particularly those who
working to secure new turnpikes:
Messrs. Commissioners of Highland
"Dear Sirs: I have received from
Auditor John Q. Roads a copy of the
resolution passed by your body In ref
erence to the Danville, Buford and
Sardinia road. As to action thereon,
will say that Section C of the law pro
vides as follows:
"The highway commissioner shall
cause plans and specifications of such
highway or section thereof to be made
for telford, macadum or gravel road
way, or other suitable construction,
taking Into consideration the climate
and soil, extent and the nature of the
ttalHc likely to be upon the highway,
speclfyingln his judgment the kind of
road a wise economy demands."
"ThlH clearly places In the hands of
the state highway commissioner the
right to prepare such plans and have
such materials as arc In his judgment
the proper ones to be used. Section .1
of the law says:
"The road, of whatever material
constructed, shall with reasonable rc
palrs thereto, at all seasons of the
year, be firm, smooth and convenient
"The local gravel will not build such
a road. I shall Insist oh my rights
under the law In this matter and re
fuse to prepare specifications for a
gravel road out of the local material.
I enclose a copy of the specifications
that I shall Insist on being used on
"Further, I desire to say, that as
there is available only $.'1,400 from the
State for the two years, 1000 and 1007,
putting a limit of 310,000 on the
amount to be expended, and as the
Attorney General holds that no part
of the road can be considered without
considering It as a whole, It will be
Impossible to construct a road eleven
and one-half miles long'untll after the
legislature has made an appropriation
that will cover one-fourth of the cost
of the road. If, therefore the county
commissioners of Highland should ap
prove the road In question It would
block the construction of any roads in
Highland county until after the legis
lature meets. As there Is no likeli
hood In the near future of the legis
lature passing appropriations for any
two years that would be sufficient to
take care of that road, the only feas
ible, safe and just plan Is to call down
tne whole road, and if petitioners de
sire any part of the road to be built,
file petitions for sections not exceed
ing one and one-half and two miles
each. Yours Very Truly,
State Highway Commissioner.

In order to secure an opinion from
R.C.Hunt, one of the engineers of
the New York subway, the automobile
party referred to in last week's News
Herald was made up to go over the
route of a' proposed electric line be
tween Washington C. H. and Hllls

Frank Johnson, Herbert Brownell, M.

The proposition is a good one, Mr.
Hunt says, while the prospects of the
line becoming a money-maker, and
eventually a part of the trunk line
between the Ohio river and the Lake,
are very assuring.
The cars were driven from Washing

practically covered by the cars In the
tour of Inspection, and another that
passes through Allensburg, Lynch

former, however, appearing to Mr.
Hunt as the more practical. The
"hills," which heretofore have been
an argument against the route, are
not such insurmountable barriers, ac
cording to Mr. Hunt, aB they at first
suggested, and will add but little to
the cost of the construction of the
road. The party returned home enthu

Ardontly Championed By a Loading
While this movement is of supreme
economic and Industrial Importance,
Its value as a temperance measure is
of the first magnitude- For it has the
following points of advantage to us
as temperance workers:
1. It will relieve us of the burden
of what we will do with the vast sums
Invested in distilleries If prohibition
goes into effect.
2. It will relieve us of the burden
of explaining what we will do for a
market lor the farmers' giain now
consumed by the distillers.
3. It will relieve us of the charge
that we are striking at any legitimate
industry, as wc would be If we denied
the supply of alcohol for proper and
4. It would have an educational
value In teaching the young to class
alcohol with kerosene, benzine, etc.,
articles to be burned In lamps and
furnaces rather than In the stomachs
of men and women.
(5. Our support will win the friend
ship of thousands of manufacturers
whoarc now fighting for this Industrial
Ingredient without the slightest In
tent of Injuring the temperance
0, It would open a decent means of
livelihood for distillers to enter with
out learning a new business or de
molishing their property.
7. It, would strip from the beverage
traffic one of the chief chcltcrs bo
hind which It haB hid in America for
forty years the industrial use of the
