Since 1SS2 the Standard I Ml ('unpini'
of Ohio hau discharged at least two
thirds of the men employed by it. The

cally dismantled. The plant of th?
Argnnd Heflniog Oompany, of Parkers
i-urg, W. Va., wan bought by the com
bino. By agreement the plant will rr
niiin idle for ten or twelve thonsan?
dollars a ypar. The power ol
the Standard Oil Oompany and other
corporations lies in their ability tc
control transporation. Although the
interstate laws forbid discrimination
in freight rates, the Standard has se?
cured rates from the Southemjshipping
points in Ohio to New Orleans which
are much lower than those granted to
The agreements with the railroad
companies are not direct, but an in?
direct contract is entered into, by
which the law is evaded.
The witness expressed himself very
strongly against the extortionate meth?
ods employed by tha Standard Oil Oom?
pany and other corporations. He re?
ferred In especially strong terms to the
use made by corporations of State and
national laws to impose upon the pub

for a corporation to make money by
oharging the public an exorbitant
price for an article as it is for a man
to make counteifeit coin and pass it
into circulation as genuine He thought
the extortion practiced by many trusts
is contrary to the fundamental princi?

interested in the fate of the intrepid
Arotto explorer, and it may bo assumed
that the virions Ffa-ching pxjx'ditions
alrendy organi/.ed will continue their
investigations until, as in the case of
Sir John Franklin, articles belonging
to Andr?e'? outfit shall be found. The
Norwegian and Swedish scientists,
however, have not yet abandoned the
hope of finding Professor Andr?e alive.
They indulge the hope that he landed
in N< rtheastern Oreenland, and that he
is making his way south along the east?
ern coast ?a journey which would re?
quire several years to complete. There
is a touch of patbes in this cherished
belief that Audree is still alive, and
the discoverer who shall solve the great
mystery will win worldwide renown.
