OIL KING REPLIES
JohnO. Rockefeller Answers Part
of Statements of Rev.
PICKS FLAW IN ALLEGATIONS
Speaks of "Garbled Report" as Basis
for the Doctor's At
tacks. New York. April 20. Smarting un
der the criticisms of Rev. Dr. Washing
ton Gladden. John I). Rockefeller has
made a spirite I reply.
The doctor had attempted to make
out a case of perjury against the oil
magnate, but the latter declares there
is no basis of truth in the charge, which
he explains for the first time.
Mr. Rockefeller smartly raps Dr.
Gladden for making so serious a charge
without adequate investigation and
hints that a possession of facts is nec
essary before public accusations are
Mr. Rockefeller's reply is given out
by Starr J. Murphy, his private coun
sel, and contains the following:
"In his latest attack upon Mr. Rocke
feller Dr. Washington Gladden seeks
to make out a case of perjury, and in
doing so assumes paternity for a false
hood which has been frequently pub
lished during the last. 10 years, and un
til now never answered.
"Dr. Gladden says: 'The South Im
provement company was one of the
schemes invented by the Standard Oil
magnates to plunder their competitors
and enrich themselves. The organiza
tion and the methods of this company
were abundantly proved in court, and
the company was driven out of busi
ness. YVuriln latter Oath.
"'A few years afterwards, before a
committee of the New York legisla
ture. Mr. Rockefeller, under oath. trok
part in the following coloquy:
There was such a company ?"'"
I have heard of such a company."
You were not in it?"
" ' "I was not."
"'Mr. Lloyd appropriately adds: "So
help me God." On the same day anoth
er of the former trustees and one of the
closest associates of Mr. Rockefeller,
being asked by a congressional com
mittee who made up that South Im
provement company, named as among
them the principal members of the
Standard Oil company and at the head
of them all stood the name of John D.
"Dr. Gladden makes much of his po
sition as an original investigator and
says that it is within the power of ev
ery intelligent man to find out from
the original documents whether the
statement is true or not.
"But. unfortunately, his statement. is
untrue, and his whole charge of per
jury rests upon a garbled report."
