POOR OLD ROCKEFELER BUSINESS MEHTOPROTEST WORTH BUT $300,000,000 ARE OPPOSED TO MEASURE If the Statement as to his Wealth by His Business Agent Is True the Head of Standard Is Indeed in Hard Lines. Publishers' Press. New York, Feb. 22. The magnitude of John D. Rockefeller's fortune was developed in an Inquiry here.-In reply to a question, Frederick TV Gates, Mr. Rockefeller's business representative fiaid: "There have been a great many amusing misstatements on this sub ject. Several years ago Senator Hoar, in the senate, credited Mr. Rockefeller with a fortune of $1,000,000,000. Quite recently a statement has been made and published widely throughout the country that his annual income ex ceeds $100,000,000. ; "Now, the facts are that Mr. Rocke feller has at various times himself au thorized a statement that his fortune can: not exceed $250,000,000 to $300, 000,000. Furthermore, his income, in stead of being $100,000,000, or any thing like it, can not, in his most pros perous year, have exceeded $15,000, 000 to $20,000,000. "The public generally is under the impression that he owns a majority of the Standard Oil stock. The facts are -that Mr. Rockefeller's holdings of Standard Oil stock are about 20 per cent."

Yesterday afternoon a search war rant was procured from Judge Piety, under the new "blind tiger" law, and deputy sheriffs raided the quart shop of Henry McDonald and took twenty five cases of beer. " No whiskey was found. A saloon license had been re fused McDonald and after an appeal to the pircuit court a change of venue was taken, to the Vermillion court, where Judge Rheuby decided against him. Warrant Issued for McDonald. ' Mr. Shickel said that neither he nor his partner had been especially active in opposition to the quart shop. but that the whole community were opposing it. The damage to the Shic kel store building, which was one story, will amount to several hund red dollars, but Mr. Shickel will make no estimate to the damage to the stock. McDonald ' went to Sandford about two years ago from Fontanet, where he had been in the saloon business. He is married and is thirty-two years old. The process used by the sheriff in the raid yesterday was not sworn to by any, one of the residents of Sand ford, but by Prosecutor Cooper. The prosecutor this morning also caused to be Issued a warrant for the arrest of McDonald. Evidence Against McDonald. The evidence against McDonald is strong, beginning, according to wit nesses, with threats he made not only to destroy property, but to take life. A witness also says he saw McDonald running, to his house from the direc tion of the two stores a minute or two before the explosion. ; When Sheriff Horseley went to Mc Donald's house this morning two hours after the explosion, he found McDonald In bed, under the covers, but with his clothes on. McDonald was formerly a coal min er and knows how to use dynamite. The information on which the McDon ald place was raided yesterday was furnished by Channing Ryan, who lives in Fayette township and who is a member of the present grand jury. The latter body has been excused for ten days, because a member has be come seriously ill. McDonald a Desperate Man. It is asserted that McDonald is a recklessly desperate man. He laid himself liable to severe punishment by Judge Piety by taking some of the beer after the sheriff's deputies had piled the cases on the sWewalk. He can be charged with theft of the beer or with contempt of court in violating the order of Judge Piety to search the premises and confiscate any li quor or beer found there. Even af ter the explosions this morning he told Sheriff Horseley that he intended to wreak further vengeance. fares on the trains. This half cent, however, is to be refunded to them when they reach their destination. D. A RATHER PECULIAR SUIT. Foreign Roads Holding C. H.
