Thus spoke President Boosevelt to
a gathering of young women of Wash
ington who called at the White House
mi the president's Invitation to receive
his congratulations on the splendid
work being done by the Young Wo
men's Christian association.
"There has been in the past," con
tinued the president, "a tendency to
do more for young men than for
young women. I remember twenty-
five years ago, being very much
struck, in Ner York, at a time when
I had some connection with work on
the east side, with the fact that there
was so much more opportunity for a
young man without friends In the city
to get a place for himself, to escape
temptation, to receive aid, than there
wns for a young woman; that too of
ten there was no chnncc for the young
woman who came to the city to re
ceive help and have the human sym
pathy which she so much needed."
The president then reviewed the
work being done by the Young Wo
men's Christian associations. Con
tinuing, he said:
This association Is peculiarly to be
commended for the way in which it
works in harmony with all other bod
ies. You have striven to make your
work part of the general helpful work
of the community. You try to work
In connection with the various church
es of all denominations, to help hand

Testimony of a technical nature .re
garding the pipe line service of the
company prevented the calling of any
of the Standard Oil heads, and the
spectators were disappointed. There
Is a strong probability that John D.
Rockefeller may take the stand to
morrow morning, for it is expected
that by that time the prosecution and
the defense will have finished with
the present witnesses. The four prom
inent witnesses will not appear in
court until the defense Is ready to put
them on the stand.
Morris Rosenthal, senior counsel for
the Standard Oil company, will ex
amine John D. Rockefeller on the
stand. Then Special Attorney Frank
Kellogg will conduct the cross exami
nation, which is expected to be the
most interesting feature of the entire
hearing. The defense will aim to se
cure from Mr. Rockefeller the early
history of the Standard Oil company.
Great leeway is granted to Mr. Kel
logg in the cross examination, as he
Is permitted to ask any questions he
deems important to the case. Referee
Ferris will not have the power to pass
upon the legal points involved when
the lawyers for the defense make ob
jections, and the witness will be com
pelled to answer and rest content with
the objection of his counsel noted on
the records, subject to being stricken
out later. If Mr. Rockefeller should
refuse to answer on advice of counsel
Referee Ferris' probable course would
be to apply to a federal Judge for a
ruling on the point involved.
