MIBSION Vice President of One of John D, Rockefeller's Concern Reveals Manner in Which Buyers Were Trapped By Associated Press. NEW YORK, Oct. 14.— Hempton G. Westcott, vice president of the Stand ard Oil company of Kentucky, testified today in the hearing of the federal suit against the oil combine that in several of the southern states the Standard had found it expedient to sell much of its product through companies which tho public believed to be Independent. The practice of selling through so called independent companies, which were owned by the combine, was discon tinued two years ago, according to Mr. Westcott. I Mr. Kellogg, counsel for the govern ment, drew from the witness that tho Standard Oil company of Kentucky, which acts as the selling agent of oil in Ken tucky, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee and Alabama, had purchased numerous small Independent selling com panies and through many of them sold oil to the consumer. Some of the plants of these independents were dismantled and the business taken over by the Stand ard. Mr. Westcott threw a side light on a business department of the Standard concerning which the federal counsel had been seeking Information since the be ginning of the inquiry. Reports on Competitors The witness said that each month the main office of the Standard Oil company of Kentucky at Coving- - sent to him not only the reports of the hustiu'ps op •rotiojia of the Slunli.iU. . •: concerning freight shipments and sales of oil by all competitors. These state ments, according to Mr. Westcott, gave the name of the consignor, the consignee, the amount of oil shipped and any In formation that might be available. Mr. Westcott said that after examining these statements he tiled them with the statistical department In the Standard's office In this city. This department, Mr. Westcott said, was In Chicago, in charge of W. E. Bemls, who kept computation and a record of the business of both the Standard and Its competitors. Mr. Kellogg stated tonight that he ex pected to call William G. Rockefeller, as sistant treasurer of the Standard of New York, to the stand when the hearing is resumed tomorrow. It is believed that at the end of this week the hearing will be adjourned for several weeks to give Mr. Kellogg an opportunity to go care fully over the mass of Information he has obtained since the hearing has begun. Alfred H. Bralnard, comptroller of the Standard Oil company of New Jersey and many of Its subsidiary companies, was questioned today concerning large loans made to James McDonald of the Anglo- American Oil company. Testimony was given last week that the Southern Pipe Line company had loaned over $20,000,000 to Mr. McDonald and that the books showed that it had never been paid back. Asked Concerning Loans Mr. Bralnard said that he was Ameri can secretary of the Anglo-American company and that Mr. McDonald was the managing director in London. He was asked concerning loans made by the An glo-American company of $1,260,000 in 1905 and $1,427,900 .n 190u to Mr. McDonald. Mr. Bralnard said that the loans had been ordered from London and that was all he knew about them. Mr. Brainard was asked concerning the loans made by the Southern Pipe Line company of over $20,000,000 to P. S. Trainer. Mr. Bralnard said that It was likely that Mr. Trainer reported his losses to the Standard Oil .company of New York city and the Southern Pipe Line company reimbursed the Standard's losses and charged the amounts to the account of Mr. Trainer. Mr. Brainard said he thought the losses •were incurred by Mr. Trainer In the pur chase and sale of oil. Mr. Bralnard said he knew nothing about the loans made by the Standard Oil company of New York aggregating $32,061,020 in 1900 to "interests other than Standard Oil." He said the account came to him from the treasurer's office. William G. Rocke feller might know something of the loans, the witness said.
