the Richmond Palladium, Friday, November 16, 1906. THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM Entered at Richmond Postofflce as Second Class Matter FRIDAY MORNING, RICHMOND, IND. Fine Tribute to Mr. and Mrs. Gurncy Binford. The current issue of the Friends Missionary Advocate contains an In teresting tribute to the good work and character of Mr. and Mrs, Gurney Binford, Friends' Missionaries, which was written by a Japanese, the edi tor of one of the largest Japanese newspapers in his kingdom. Mrs. Bin lord was formerly Miss Elizabeth Schneider, of Richmond. The tribute of the Japanes editor follows: I am not a Christian, but I am studying Christianity. I have an opinion about religion and philosophy; therefore I wish to study all relig ions and philosophies. And when I can do this I do not know. I met Mr. Binford in May of this year and from that time studied English for one month under his instruction. The days that I studied English were few bu( I received much. To teach kindly and to treat nicely he is a princely man. He always subscribed for the Kanal Irabaki and watched carefully all items of news and he never missed any chance to preach the gospel. He is noran ordinary missionary who over-persuades everyone whom he meets to become a Christian. "If we throw diamonds into the darkness the people draw the sword; diamonds are what the people want, but they only frighten the people-when thrown sud denly into the darkness." He knows all about these things, therefore he succeeded in social life first and then succeeded in preaching the gos pel. He is not like a common missionary but Is a real missionary. Though very busy he taught English to students and never got tired. This is one of his characteristics. People of Ibaraki province have cer tain inherited characteristics; that is they are very indifferent to religion. A man who is only a stranger to sow the seeds of faith in such a place. He is really suited to be a missionary in Mito of Ibaraki. The people of Miton trusted him in society and therefore he was able to overcome their natural prejudice to Christianity to such an extent that they said foreigners are socially agreeable. He has exerted good influence In two sides. First he made good chance to advocate Christianity; second the people of Mito became inter ested in the better social life and thus he has done great things for us. Also Mrs. Binford is especially admirable. Coming so far to this country without knowing a word of.Japanese language how could she help in her husband's business? For this she studied Japanese earn estly, never tiring day or night. "When the heart is single there is nothing that can not bo done." Indeed in a few years she has become able to carry on good conversation Hn our language. We admire her en ergy, but we sympathize with her struggles in hard work." She organ ized cooking classes and through these got Into the 'immediate social in - tercourse with the ladies of the city. This also gave Mr. Binford many opportunities to advocate the gospel. Thus half of the success of Mr. Binford is attained by the help of his. wife. Husband and wife helping each other in the mission of life. Brother and sister, isn't this a lesson we should learn from them? - CAMBRIDGE CITY. Cambridge City, Nov. 15. (Spl.) Miss Anna Freeman was in Richmond today. Chas.

IDAHO IS ALSO LASHED CREEKS AND RIVERS ARE RAG ING TORRENTS, WHILE RAIL OADS ARE TIED UP AND MANY TOWNS CUT OFF. Publishers' Pre&j Portland, Ore., Nor. 13. Never since the white men came to the state of Washington has this region suffer ed such a storm as raged Wednesday night and Thursday. The wind and rain, which during the week wrought havoc with coast wise shipping, swept inland and vent ed an unheard of fury on the whole state, especially the Puget sound country, and spread over the northern part of Oregon and the Panhandle of Idaho. Railroads out of Tacoma and Seat tle are demoralized, the train service to Portland only from Seattle being maintained. Railways across the state are prostrated, and no news Is receiv ed here from eastern Oregon. Creeks, rivers and brooks in the Cascades are roaring torrents. On Puget sound the towns of Snohomish, Sumner and Auburn are under water. In central Washington floods are rag ing la the Natchez and Yakima val leys. The Clearwater Is out of its banks and has done immense damage. At Portland a heavy wind was ac companied by torrential rain. No damage was done further than to put el'ectric lights and streetcars out of commission. Tacoma, Wash., Nov. 15. With a flood area embracing approximately 300 square miles northwestern Wash ington is face to face with a state of affairs which, unless the water sub sides soon, will prove far more disas trous than the floods four years ago. Fed by a constant succession of heavy rains and by melted snow from the slopes of the Cascades, nearly all the streams have risen with the rapidity characteristic of the waters of this section of the ' country, overflowed their banks and are spreading across the valleys and lowlands, bringing a monetary loss which will , reach hun dreds of thousands of dollars. Scores of towns were cut off from outside communication, bridges swept aside, Tailroad tracks washed out, telegraph and telephone wires torn down, and as far as can be ascertained at least a dozen lives lost.

LOUIS COURT (Continued from Page One.) me same proportion of defined Oil ex ported from the United States; that this share of the business has been produced by action which, . beginning in 1870, has continued under the dl rectlon of the same persons in the main down to the present time; that these persons are John D. "Rockefel ler, William Rockefeller, Henry H. Rogers, Henry M. Flagler, John D. Archbold, Oliver H. Payne and Charles M. Pratt; that the design throughout of the persons having con trol of the enterprise has been to suppress competition In the produc tion, transportation and sale of re fined oil, and to obtain, as far as pos sible, a monopoly therein; that be tween 1870 and 1882 the design was effected through agreements between many persons and corporations en gaged In this business; that in 1SS2 the result aimed at was made more certain by vesting in nine trustees (including five of the above named persons) sufficient stock in the 39 corporations concerned to enable the trustees to control their operations in such a way that competition between them was suppressed; that this plan was acted upon until it was declared unlawful by the supreme court of Ohio, one of said corporations, in 1892; that during the seven years fol lowing the same Individual defend ants, as majority of the liquidating trustees, were pretending to .liquidate the trust, but as a matter of fact were managing all of th'e corporations in the same way and exercising the same control over them; that the in dividual defendants in 1899 increased the stock of the Standard Oil com pany of New Jersey from $10,000,000 to $110,000,000; that said company was then an appropriating and selling corporation, and they added to its corporate powers the power of pur chasing stock in other companies, and practically all of the powers exercised by the trustees under the lawful trust agreement of 1882; that the Standard Oil company of New Jersey, then tak ing the place of the trustees, acquired all of the stock of the corporations theretofore held and controlled by the trustees, paying therefor by the Issue of its own shares In exchange; that the president of the board of trustees became the president of the Standard Oil company of New Jersey, and the business of the trust then assumed the direction of the business of the Standard Oil company of New Jersey, and ever since continued it; that the purpose and effect of the use of the Standard Oil company of New Jersey as a holding company was precisely the same as the purpose and effect of the appointment of the trustees hereinbefore referred to, namely, to suppress competition between the cor porations and limited partnerships whose stock was first held by the trus tees and then by the Standard Oil company of New Jersey; that by the foregoing methods, aided by the es tablishment of railroad rates for transportation, which discriminated In favor of the corporations whose stock was held by the holding company, that company has been enabled to ob tain in large sections of the country n monopoly of the sale of refined oil, With .he result that the prices to the consumer within the territory where the monopoly prevails are very much higher than within the territory where competition to some extent still exists. "It is believed that these facts, to gether with others contained in the report of the special counsel, justify and require action by the United States In the courts. Accordingly, a petition in- equity under the provi sions of the Sherman act, has been filed against the Standard Oil com pany of New Jersey and 70 other cor porations and limited partnerships, and the seven individual defendants before namod, In, the Eighth judicial circuit at St. Louis, Mo., to have the said combination adjudged and de creed to be unlawful, and that the holding and control by the Standard Oil company of New Jersey of the stocks of the 70 corporations . be de clared unlawful, and the said corpora tions be prohibited from declaring or paying any dividends to the Standard Oil company of New Jersey and be enjoined from entering into or per forming any contract or combination to restrain trade and commerce or to monopolize trade in the future. ' The question whether any action ' of a different nature should be taken ' is reserved for future consideration. The controversy is pending in the court, and further comment by this department or by any one connected with it would obviously be improper and unfair." Petition Filed. St. Louis, Nov. 15. The petition in stituting suit against the Standard OH company of New Jersey, John D. Rockefeller and others, in the name of the government, by direction of the attorney genera, was filed in the United States circuit covt here. Frank B. Kellogg of St Paul, Minn., special counsel for the government, formally placed the petition withythe court. The defendants have one month in which to enter their appear ance and additional month in which to file their answer. They alao have the option of filing a demurrer to the petition.
