Testimony as to Standard Methods
in New York State. f
Cleveland. March IL— Methods of mer.tirm com
petition and paining the oil trade of a locality were
testified to by Charles K. Farrell, of Coboes, K. V..
and John J. Shea, of Syracuse. in.) . before Frank
lin Ferris, special examiner, here to-d.iy. Th"
testimony was brought out by ex-District Attorney
C. B. Morrison, of Chicago, who is conducting the
present hearing for the government in Its ouster
eedbisa against the Standard Oil Company.
The suit was begun in the United States Circuit
Court at St. I,ouis on November 13, 1306. The lead
ing spirits of the Standard Oil Company and about
seventy subsidiary companies are defendants, Th«:
Evidence, which has been heard in New York. Al
bany and Washington, is being taken by Mr. Ferris,
and the final decree may be based upon his recom
mendationa. The Cleveland hearing, which began
to-day, and which will probably be the last, relates
principally to general points in the whole prosecu
tion, j , j
Farrell wai> the first witness. He said be worked
for the Standard Oil Company for several years, up
to thirteen months ago. He paid he wan taken from
his regular duties at Bingharaton. N. V., and sent
to Oneonta, N. V.. to operate a tank wagon, selling
to the consumers direct. There, be said, he entered
iifto competition with the Tiona Oil Company, an
Independent concern. First, he said, he bought his
011 of the Tycnda company, paying the regular
wholesale price, 8 cents a gallon, and sold It to the
citizens at the sans rate.
•Then there were no profits for you? Mr. Mor
rison asked. _..,..
•My wages and expenses were paid by William
Mason, the Standard OH agent at Binghamton.
Mr. Parrel! answered.
"What was the result'" *.♦■„_
■The merchant, began cutting prices and flshtlns
amonc then. i tor the trade. My wagon bore
the Bleu of the Tiona Company. The merchants
became aVigry at that company for allowing me to
do that and they stopped selling me oil.
"Then what did you do?"
"Mr. Mason sent me oil and I continued to se.l at
thp'same price."
"Then what?"
••The competition became so keen that some mer
chants gave oil away."
"Did you finally gain a trade?" i
•'Yes. "but the wagon was stopped and I was called
in to Binphamton."
The evidence did not tell of the final result.
Mr Fa-re!l was cross-questioned closely upon
letters of instructions he said he had received from
Mason. Some of the letters were unsigned. The
writer requested that a match be put to them as
soon as they were read.
John J. Shea said he operated a wagon business
in Syracuse, selling to the consumers, and bought
his oil from the Standard Oil Company until he
could purchase at a lower figure from an inde
pendent dealer.
"Then rival retail wagons appeared in Syracuse,
under the name of the Home Safety Oil Company,"
he said.
"How long did this continue?" Attorney Morrison
"Until a Standard Oil agent contracted to sell
nic oil for 3 cents under the wholesale price, pro
viding I bought all of my oil from the Standard
Oil Company. They also agreed to have the rival
wagons withdrawn. I entered into the contract and
•-.• wagons left. The contract ran a year. Daring
the year they allowed me only 2 cents under the
wholesale rice, and I would not enter into another
contract. They said they would allow me 3 cents.
1 said I wanted to buy where it was the cheapest.
They said they wanted the whole hog. I replied
that I would fight and be content with the tail if
necessary. The fight began. New rival tank
wagons appeared and still are there."
At this ; ■::.■ the • lamination was continued until
! to-morrow morning.

No Change To Be Made in Navy
[Prom The Tribune Isurr*a.]
NATAL CXIFORMB.— It has bdjp decided by
the Navy Department to postpone any considera
tion of the changes which were contemplated in
the uniform of naval officers and enlisted men.
There has been a preliminary discussion of this Im
portant subject by a board which met about a
year ago and the report of which has been put in
printed form for circulation among officers whose
opinions on the subject are now sought in a letter
of instruction which has been sent to the com
mander in chief Of the Atlantic fleet and to the
commanding officer of the Pacific fleet. By this
means in the course of the next few months the
bureau of navigation will be in possession of the
views entertained by naval officers. it will be in
teresting to ascertain the service opinion or. a sub
ject which nearly every oilier feels that he is
qualified to discuss. There will be a tendency, it
is imagined, to reduce the amount of official ap
parel now prescribed by the regulations. One point
likely to be brought out is that the naval musicians
have no distinctive unitorm of their own. They
wear a port of motley garb, and the musicians
have been trying for some time to get an apparel
which if more distinctive. The disposition of the
bureau authorities is to make as few changes as
possible in view of the expense which must be in
curred by commissioned officers in complying with
any amendment of the uniform regulations.

Three Persons Have Narrow Escape in Will
iamsburg Street.
Three persons narrowly escaped serious injury
last night" when a Crosstown car bound south
crashed into a two-horse carriage owned and driven
by Abraham Lewis, of No. 104 Madison street, at
New street WUllamabarg. The other passengers
in the carriage were Mrs. Lewis and a Mrs. Davia
Th" thre- persons were thrown to the ground and
lav' there for several minutes, and seemed as if
they had been killed. A physician who responded
from the Eastern District Hospital found that they
had not beei seriously hurt, and after dressing
tbelr wounds they were able to leave for home.
There were many passengers in the car at the
time and but for the coolness of the conductor
several of them might have been hurt, for as the
car struck the carriage every one made for the
door With the conductors assurance that every
thing was all right they walked back to their

Evolve Into an American Beaut it or
a Cellar Potato.
"Are you poor, stunted wild roses crowded be
hind a hedge?" demanded Mrs. Mildred Man >
CaJd«eH < f the members of the National S
of Ohio Women at her lecture at the V. aldorf-
Astorto yesterday morning. "Thorn flowers, nod
ding at somo American Beauties in a vase at her
IMS "were stunted wild roses once. They were
developed into what they are. You can draw on
the power that is in you, and master and remaKe
* "Every* 'one is full of power, Mrs. Caldwellr said
but in moat people it is locked Op behind gates of
habit, of inertia-"gates that keep us on one side
Of ourselves." The people who unlock these pates
are the people who do things-the extraordinary
people President Roosevelt stands at the head cf
the "unlocked energy" works, the lecturer said.
-He was a busy man before he became President,
she observed, "but since then— why. he has un
locked and unlocked; he is into everything, and
doing everything. And what set him unlocking
hid power? Why, his sense of responsibility to the
people and to himself."
Christ was the greatest master of life, Mrs. Cald
well said, DOt because He was God, but because
of the way He used life. When He healed people
he did it by appealing to the power, and the faith
in them made them heal themselves.
"Call your little part of life a picture, and paint
it with all the power that is In you," she adjured
her hearers. "Be artists— not artisans. The artisan
may be sincere, but— he lives because he can't help
himself. The artist Is Coll of faith. The artisan
drudges at his work. The artist plays. The artisan
pities himself because he's got to earn his living.
Such women pity themselves because they haven't
the chances some other women have. It's: 'Oh. if
I could dress like Mrs. So-and-so, what a figure I
could cut in society:' 'If I had the chance Mrs.
Dash has, bow much I could do in club work!'
"Now, no one can establish Ideals for other peo
ple, but as a strive* myself I want to say to
you. face your own particular responsibilities in
life bravely. What Is material for the picture
you've got to paint? Why, everything— the air you
breathe, your families, politics— don't mean poli
tics in the ordinary sense, but things as they af
fect us. Everything in our lives is material."
Then Mrs. Caldwell told how to unlock one's hid
den stores of energy. "I don't want to be like the
Irishwoman who kept saying. "Katy, Katy. be a
lady,' and didn't tell Kary how to be a lady," she
observed. "Now, you know, accident is always un
locking our energies. I know a woman who is
lazy. She envies people who da things, but she's
just naturally lazy. The ether morning I found
her in bed.
•• 'Of course,' she yawned, 'I know this flat ought
to be cleaned, and Clara's coat netds mending—
but I'm bo tired. I simply must take a day off.'
•■Just then the telephone bell ran?. She got up
to answer It. She came flying back. 'Oh, dear."
she cried, 'rr.y husband is going to bring that aw
ful man to dinner— his wife is such a housekeeper,
I can't let him s>?e this flat the way It Ist—
there this lazy woman was bustling around, clean
ing, planning the dinner. Now what was the key
that unlocked her energies? Why, a new interest.
But what accident does for us that way we can
do for ourselves, and all the time."
Then Mrs. Caldwell talked about false values
in life. "We teach our children to ring the door
bells of the 'best people,' " ehe said, "and think
■we've given them a good start In life. When a
big diamond is found experts gather to discuss how
to cut it and workmen spend a lifetime doing it-
When a soul is born do experts discuss how to
develop it?
"I know a woman who entertains lavishly. Her
wines are of the best, her house splendidly fur
nished—but, oh, how her conversation jars! There's
a woman in my street— don't know her— but the
way that woman walks nd holds her hands has
made an anarchist of our janitor's wife. Now.
those women haven't learned to put themselves
in harmony with the best.
"Be a potato," was on* of the final pieces of
advice Mrs. CaklweU gave. "Every one who has
ever lived In a house with a cellar knows how
a potato will put out little feelers— way across
the cellar they will creep, sometimes, reaching
for the light. Now, can't we be es intelligent as
a vegetable?"
The lecture was given under the auspices of the
National Society of Ohio Women, and will be fal
lowed by three others, on the three remaining
Wednesdays of Lent.

An Increaj i - rge number of women want

"1 know many suffrai i are perfectly sin
cere in Th-!r demand for the ballot." paid Mrs.
M- • r, "but an li - raber -ire not.

pant to-day p.rA are m hotly after
■■■ • ■ ■■• • ' had it."
Mra Meyet defended thi ■■ from
the charge of wrt being mterestsd in the welfare
of working women
"Air.. ■ the anti-suffragists," she ca'.d, "are
work« ■ ■ along all sorts cf lines, but we have failed
to be convinced that the ballot would improve the
condition of the workers. We deny that there i 3
the slightest relation between wages, short hours
ami the ballot. You eannx>t adjust delicate com
mercial relations by law. The suffragists have
no rig ■ to assume that they are the only women
who an interested in th« welfare of their sisters."
In conclu?ion Mrs. Meyer urged the students to
decide the question under consideration in the cold
light of reason, not to be carried away by then
emotions and not to be like those women who
loathe the idea of smoking, but smoke. ne\-erthe
less, just because an alderman has presumed to
say they couldn't.
These remarks were mads by way of introduction
of Mrs. Barclay Hazard, of the executve commit
tee of the association opposed to the further ex
tension of the franchise to women. Mrs. Hazard
repeated tho argument sh© presented tO the State
Federation, her point being that women at present
occupy the position of an independent third party,
and hence wield a power that they would lose ■'
they had votes.
"Do not." she urged, "be beguiled by ay spe
cious argument about the so-called equality of
women Into forgetting; your true position. Do not
let yourselves be imposed upon by change masquer
ailing as progress. Let no restless ambition to
play a part in factional public I'i-y Induce you to
surrender tho absolutely unique position which we
pioneers have gained for yoo. Let your watchword
be 'Power through 1 Independence." "
Mrs. Hazard was invited to address the students
by the Barnard Union, of which Miss Florence
Wolf is president, next ■ i.th. Mrs. Florence
Kelly, of the Consumers' League, tvill present the
other stile. Mr.- Kelly was selected to represent
the "caufe" by the College Women's Kquul Suf
frage l ■ ague. which has many Barnard women
among its members, ami ♦•Uher before or after Mrs.
Kelly's address it is expected taal an aadergswdß)

Mr. Myers concluded by saying that he wistei
