STANDARD OIL METHODS
Report to the President Saya Th:y
N;t Benefitted Consumers Destroyed
Competitors Increased Prices
Washington. Significant revela
tions wcro made public Sunday In a
report submitted to Pre .-tide-tit Roose
velt by Herbert Knox Suilih, commis
sioner of corporations, concerning tho
operations of the Standard Oil com
pany. In a previous re;ort the means and
methods of the Standard were ex
plained. Tno present report sets forth
the results of these methods and tho
effect they have had on the consumer
of oil and on profits of the Standard
Commissioner Smith Says:
"The Standard Oil company is re
sponsible for the course of prices of
petroleum atid its products during the
last 23 years. The Standard has con
sistently used its power to raise the
price of oil during the last ten years,
not only absolutely but also relatively
to the cost of crude oil."
The Standard has claimed that it
has reduced the price of oil; that it
has bet n a benefit to the consumer;
and that only a great combination iike
the Standard could have furnished oil
at the prices that have prevailed.
"Each one of these claims," says
Commissioner Smith, "is disproved by
"The following facts are proven:
The Standard has not reduced mar
gins during the period In which it lis
b?en responsible for the prices of oil.
During the last eight years covered
by this report US9S to VM:) it has
raised both prices and margins. Its
domination has not been acquired or
maintained by its superior efficiency,
but rather by unfair competition and
by methods economically and morally
unjustifiable. The Standard has su
perior efficiency In running its own
business; it has an equal efficiency in
destroying the business of competit
ors. It keeps for Itself the profits of
the first and adils to these the monop
oly profits secured by the second. Its
profits are far above the highest pos
sible standard of a reasonable com
cmrcial return, and have been stead
ily increasing. Finally, the history of
this great industry is a history of the
persistent use of the worst industrial
methods, the exaction of exorbitant
prices from tlie consumer, and the so
curing of excessive profits for the
small group of men who over a long
scries of years have dominated the
