John D.'s Brother Talks Op
enly About the Standard
Oil's Business.
AI.Ij does not turn to gold
- Belvidero, Kan., Jan. 2. "That
brother of mine, John D. Rockefel
ler, Is tho most lonesome man in
the world. .Thero Is 'no man who
walks the earth he can call his real
This was the statement made to
day by Frank Rockefeller, of Clove
land and Now York, who is spend
ing some time at his big ranch near
Belvidero, where ho comes every
winter for a few weeks' vacation.
For 20 years he has been general
field man for the Standard .Oil Com
pany. Hl3 15,000-ncre ranch In
this county Is called "Rockefeller's
$1,000,000 plaything."
"I'd rather live on a 150-acre
Western homestead, wltn a home
steader's usual farm, than live like
John D. docs in his palaces. He's
living In a regular h 1. He's the
most lonesome man. on the face of
the earth. He can call no man
"John D. has been relegated to
tho background by all tho big busi
ness men with whom lie once did
business. None of them will have
anything to do with him. They
don't llko his ways of doing busi
ness. Brother William Is worth 50
per cent, more money than John D
but tho people don't know It. John
I), hasn't Invested his money for
many years and Is practically out
of the game. He has the Income of
his investments, but nothing more.
William invests and reinvests and
to-day Is worth one half again as
much as John D. ,
"John I), is afraid of being kid
naped and held for ransom. Ho
never stirs without his guards. If
ho goes from his house only a few
steps, tlfere are several armed men
with him or standing at windows
with their eyes on him. He always
Is afraid kidnapers are after him.
Year3 ago ho attempted to stop me
from going hunting for fear I would
be kidnaped and he would be called
upon to pay the ransom. Its a reg
ular mania with him now."
Frank Rockefeller is 70 years
old, straight as an arrow, weighs
217 pounds and Is an athlete. Re
gardless of his appearance while in
New York or Cleveland, when In
Kansas he looks just like an ordi
nary rancher, And he acts like
one, too. He can rldo any horse on
tho ranch, ho can outswoar a'.y
cowboy on tho place, nnd he can
chew as much tobacco In a day us
the next man. He doesn't mind
asking for a "chow" from any
puncher, and ho will as readily give
one to any of tho boys.
Rockefeller talks Interestingly of
the financial probloms of the lay.
"Tho greatest question Is the
trusts and how to handlo them." ho
says. "Tho problem cannot be
solved by Congress, because the In
dividual members are not broad
enough. It must bo solved by a
body of men with commercial train
ing. "For Instance, the beef trust is
controlled by one of the smartest
sets of men In tho country. And
tho Government sent Jim Garfield
to Investigate them. Garfield was
bright enough, but he had no com
commerclul training. Everybody
knowB the result. Nothing of value
was gained.
"Tho suit against tho Standard
Oil Company was a complete fail
ure Tho oil Interests are stronger
to-day than beforo the dissolution
and they occupy a position of power
they never dreamed of beforo tho
Court order dissolved tho combina
tion. Before thero was Just one
competitor for tho Independents to
light. Now thero are 34 competi
tors, all working together. And all
bocnuso to mo one blundered. The
only direct and Immedlato result
was that the oil Interests cleaned
up 1180,000,000 In a Jiffy.
"A similar blunder was made lu
tho tobacco case and tho tobacco
peoplo made $100,000,000 lu short
order. Big men must moot big
men. A body of men with commer

clal training would know Jusf how
to go nbout this business, but mon
of tho caliber now working upon
these cases will scarcely do tho
country any good. Thoy know tho
end they dcslYo to reach, but they
don't know tho right road."
That everything tho Rockofollor
family touches docs not turn to'
gold, Is exemplified by a story the
millionaire ranchman tells on him
self. Continuing, Mr. Rockefeller
"Somo years ago a friend of mine
got mo Into a Wyoming copper
mine. I was tho principal stock
holder. I poured thousands of dol
lars Into tho thing and got nothing
In return. Finally I went out there.
Tho place was about 75 miles from
a railroad and I went in a rolling
stago coach, When 1 reached the
town 1 asked for tho Rockefeller
mine. They showed mo a hole In
the ground about as big as a bar
rel. "Where's tho foreman?" I asked.
"I'm him," said a big fellow.
"Well, you're fired," I answered.
"Everybody's fired. Pay off tho
men. You fellows can havo tho
mine. '
"We don't want It," grinned tho
"I took, the next coach back to
tho railroad, and I haven't bought a
mine since then."

Chicago Went the Limit
New Year's Eve.

Howling Mob.

Arthur Burrldge Farwell stated
that prosecutions would be Institut

In 'some scenes men nnd women
aro described as staggering into ho

public love-making was incident to
the revelry.
With the administration friendly
toward the big debauch, affairs
went tho limit. Somo of tho cafes,
however, where tho wildest scenes
were enacted, took the precaution
to bar out reporters or anybody else
who might testify to what happen
ed. This method prevented any rec
ord of the customary scenes of wait
ers dragging helplessly drunken
girls and women from beneath tho
tables and leading them to rooms
where they could sober off.
One of tho distinct novelties of
this season was put on by a pretty
girl, faultlessly dressed, on a crowd

In getting her feet into tho straps
and she hung, head downward, af

The applause was so terrific that
sho repeated the performance three
times and enthusiastic spectators
passed the hat and got a stocking
full of monoy for her. On this car
were at least twenty women, appar

class, but they applauded the girl's
act as enthusiastically as did the
In the hotels and cafes tho cus

dancing the bear cat, bunny hug,

many hectic embellishments, were
pulled off.
Tho uproarious doings did not
coramonco until after midnight,
when everybody was cither too
drunk to interfere, or Just drunk
onough to go tho limit.
Out on the streets, Jammed to

of having slipped back many years

There Is about COO.OOO pounds
of Burley tobacco in Indiana, which
is a part of the pool of the Green

augurated at 1:30 o'clock this af

buyers present, some of whom wero
from points outside Owensboro.
There was also a largo number of

pounds of tobacco, all of which was
considered of an inferior grade.
