ROGERS WAS. MUM.
Refused to State Where Standard Oil
It developed from the questions ask
ed by Attorney General Herbert a.
Hadleir of Missouri of Henry H. Rog
ers, vice president and director of the
Standard Oil company of New Jersey,
that one of Mr. Hadley's chief pur
poses In conducting an examination of
officer! of that company in this city
is to find out whether that company
owns a controlling; interest in the
Standard Oil company of Indiana, the
Waters Pierce Oil company of Mis
souri and the Republic Oil company.
This, Mr. Hadley said he regards as
a step in the direction of excluding
the three latter companies from do
ing business in Missouri.
To most of the important questions
by Mr. Hadley bearing directly on the
question of stock ownership, Mr. Rog
ers declined to give any answer, "on
the advice of counsel," and Mr. Had
ley requested Commissioner Frederick
H. Sanborn to certify the question and
Mr. Rogers' refusal to the supreme
court of this state for a determination
as to whether or not Mr. Rogers must
answer them or be adjudged in con
Mr. Rogers declined to reply to
questions ag to whether he controls
any stock in the Waters-Pierce Oil
company, whether M. Van Buren of
New York holds a controlling interest
in that company for the Standard Oil
company of New Jersey; whether the
New Jersey company controls the
Standard Oil company of Indiana or
the Waters-Pierce company, and
whether two thirds of the dividends
of the Waters-Pierce company are not
paid to H. M. Tilford, who, Mr. Rog
ers said, has an office at 26 Broadway,
Mr. Hadloy declared that he would
take all these questions to the su
preme court of New York state to se
sure an order for Mr. Rogers to show
cause why he shall not answer them.

CAN NOT BE RUBBED AWAY
When the joints are sore and swollen, and the muscles throbbing with the
pain of Rheumatism, relief must be had at once, and it is natural to rub th«
affected parts with liniments, oils, etc. This treatment does good in a way,
by temporarily relieving the pain and reducing the inflammation, but has no
effect on the disease itself, because Rheumatism is more than skin deep; it'
am the blood and cannot be rubbed away. Rheumatism is brought on by
indigestion, weak kidneys, poor bowel action, stomach troubles and a gen
eral sluggish condition of the system The refuse and waste matters, which
