PCDUG LOST $100,000,000 AT IT BE
TWEEN 1S70 AXD 1S90.
STANDARD NOT ONLY TRUST
EDITOR BOYLE TELLS AI10CT THE
runE Oil. COMPANY.
Eipreiiri a Conviction Thnt the
Standard Oil Conipanj-Uas Itceu
the Source of Great Benefit
to the People of the
VTASHDCGTOX. Sept. 7. Mr. P. C. Boyle
continued his testimony concerning the
coal oil Industry before the Industrial com
mission to-day. Ho dealt largely with the
mibject of speculation In oil, covering It
from the Inception of the Industry. He
estimated that fully $100,000,000 had been
lost by tht public In oil speculation from
1S70 to 1S90. Thl period of speculation was
only discontinued then because of the joint
efforts of the Standard Oil Company and
the Producers' Brotective Association. This
combination, ho said, had resulted in the
elimination of tho gambling features of
the sale of oil on the exchanges. "As a
consequence," he said, "we have cow an
oil market In which the consumer Axes
the price, and with which the speculator
lias nothing to do."
Mr. Boyle said tho tendency to specula
tion had had an Injurious effect upon the
oil business. To this speculation and to
overproduction he attributed the low prices
Mr. Boyle also gave a history of various
organizations connected with the oil indus
try. Including the Pure Oil Company, in
which President Phillips, of tho .commls
'r.Ion, is Interested.
Mr. Boyle Insisted upon calling this com
pany a trust, and when questioned by Mr.
Phillips as to his reason for so doing, said
It was because the first president of the
company, Mr. David KIrke. had himself
o designated It He referred to the com
pany as "an octopus," saying that It had
made an attempt to absorb all the allied In
terests in the Producers Association, and
that it had achieved considerable success.
In this connection he read the original
prospectus of the company, signed by Mr.
Phillips, among others, as a trustee. In
this proipectus the oil company was re
ferred to as a trust. Mr. Phillips took oc
casion to explain that the company was
only a. trust for voting purposes.
Continuing, Mr. Boyle characterized the
Pure Oil Company as a dog In tho manger,
and said that it had been of no utility to
the people of the state.
Referring to the condition, of labor in
the oil producing business, Mr. Boyle said
It was excellent, that drillers could make
on average of JLOO0 a year for 200 days'
work. He believed that the Standard Oil
Company looked with favor upon the or
ganization of labor, but such organizations
"were not common in the oil region.
In reply to questions. Mr. Boyle said that
the Standard company had paid money to
Fecure tho publication of articles In the
press in reply to misrepresentations, but,
bo far as he was concerned, he treated all
.with, equal fairness in his paper.
Replying to Mr, Smyth, Mr. Boyle said
he considered that the Standard company
had been the source of irreat benefit to the
American people because of Its organizing
capacity. He did not consider the com-,
party In the nature of a trust, the trust'
having been dissolved. It was" a case of;
the survival of the fittest.
Any other organization with the same
nerve, courage and ability might have
done just what the Standard had done by
beginning where It did and as it did.
Mr. Boyle was followed by B. A.
Matthews, manager of the Standard OH
Company at Columbus. O. He came before
" the commission to refute statements made
before the commission some months ago
by one W. H. Clarke, who had been agent
for the company at Newark. O. Among
there statements were allegations that tho
Standard company had sold oils from tho
name tank at different prices and had
mixed coal oil and turpentine. These, with
other charges made by Clarke, were pro
nounced false. He stated that Clarke had
been discharged from tho employ of tho
company under a cloud. Mr. Matthews
Fald It was the practice of the Standard
company to cut prices to meet competi
tion, but only after other sellers had in
itiated, the reduction.
