OIL TRUST OPENS BATTLE fOR LIFE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES ASK MANY QUESTIONS Two Other Attorneys Will Argue for Corporation Today and Wicker sham for the Government Tomorrow (Continued from I'hl-i- On») the court he would conclude his re marks In about ten minutes tomorrow. Justice White asked Mr. Milburn during his argument if the Standard Oil company of New "Jersey was the only stockholder of the subsidiary companies. Mr. Milburn said it was. "How does that affect the existence of the subsidiary companies?" in quired the justice. "The question has not arisen," was the reply. "But it arises right here," Justice White said. "In Louisiana, for Instance, if the Stockholders are reduced to less than twelve it goes out of existence." After turning to associate counsel Mr. Milburn said enough shares were placed in the names of directors to qualify and he presumed this satisfied the laws of the states where the sub fcidiary companies were chartered. Mr. Milburn said the court would bo told the origin of the Southern Im provement company in 18711 was tho beginning of the alleged conspiracy. As a matter of fait, he said, Mr. Rockefeller had no confidence in that organization, but went into it merely to avoid offending railroad men who Wished to settle rate troubles. In answer to Justice Day Mr. Mil burn estimated that S7 to yo per cent of the oil refining business was in the hands of the Standard Oil After Mr. Kell rf argument D. T. Watson and John G.

Mr. Humphrey was speaking us tho guest of honor at a dinner of the as ■oclatlon. "Our mails," he saldi "our diplomatic corps, cur ammunition and our guns are sent to the Philippines in Japanese ile.

Immediately after its formation freight i mii s mi the Pacific were advanced more than 400 per cent. "There is not a more exacting and cold-blooded trust on land or .sea. It ralsea and lowers freights at will, It promises rebates to those who patron ; ize it for a year or more, but it de mands full payment first. Then if the I shipper patronises another line the 1 rebate la withheld, it so controls the situation that it has actually com -1 American ships to return from South Amerl' a to this country in ballast.

Henry Clews, the banker, was hissed when he proposed that America ko Into the cheapest market for her ships and her sailors. At the close of the speech making the following resolution was adopted: "Resolved, That this association r* ommends to congress the passage of a bill similar to the ocean mail Intdo duced In the last congress, and advo by President Taft, providing for a sufficient postal compensation to establish a swift and regular service in American-built steamships to the trade countries of South America and to the ports of Australia, Japan, China, ami tho Philippines."

While many communications have passed between the union ofliciuls and the generaV manager?, tho latter aa- Ht-rt they have not yet received a di rect answer to their offer to nrbttrtae the wage question. CHICAGO, March 14.—Both sides to the controversy between the 25,000 Bre men on the western railroads and the railroad managers assumed an attitude of waiting today, and While union offi cials declared a strike seemed immi nent the railroad managers said the dancer point was passed. It is thought the managers' commit tee, headed by W. ('. Nixon, general manager of the fit. Kouix .<• Ban Fran cisco railroad, will invite W. B. Carter, president of the Brotherhood ofLOL'o motive Firemen and Knginemen. and his committee to another conference. The brotherhood has Utken the posi tion that unless all the questions In dis pute are submitted to arbitration under the Krdman act. a strike on all the systems between Chicago and the Pa cific coast would be necessary. The railroads today reiterated their asser tion that they would continue to re fuse to submit to arbitration anything but the waffs demand. "We know a strike will not b<> called." said O. 1./. Dickeson. assistant to the president of th" Chicago, Rur llngton & Quincjf. "That statre of the game is over. It is now only a question of nur getting together. The men will ren.iily see that a strike would be pre posterous." "The railroads are trying to make light of the situation." said President Carter. "It Is Indeed critical. We have been authorized by a vote to call a strike unless they make concessions. and we have nsked for arbitration of the whole matter." LOCAL RAILWAY OFFICIALS DISPLAY LITTLE INTEREST Santa Fe Only Road to Admit It Might Possibly Be Affected by Strike News that President Carter had or dered a strike of firemen was received ;\t local railroad centers las! night with varylnsr decrees of Interest. At the South.tii Paelflc it was dr clared: "We don't know whether tt will bother us or not. We have enough men and are all prepared." The Bali Lake does not anticipate a strike on its line, according to the night dispatcher. "I am not sure, ' he said. "but it is hardly possible the Salt Lake will be affected." The Santa Fe Is the only road operat ing out of Los Angeles which acknowl edged la-st night it might be troubled. "The strike of firemen may aft'ect our line," It was stated, "nut to what ex tent cannot be determined tonight.' THOUSANDS IN COLORADO PREPARED TO QUIT WORK DENVER, March 14.—A. I>. Parker, vice president and general manager of the Colorado Southern railroad, and member of the general managers' com mittee, stated tonight that he bad re celved no information regarding the situation in Chicago other than the Assoi iated Press report, and said he could make no statement as to what action would be taken by railroads. Local union officials announced they were ready to striku whenever the order was received. Should the men be called out it is estimated that between 10.000 and il\ooo in the operating departments of railroads in Colorado and surrounding States will respond. The Denver & Rio Grande, the Colo rado Midland and the Cripple Creek Short Line are the only roads In Colo rado not bound by action of the gen ■ra] managers' committee. However, firemen of the Denver & Rio Grande tly made demands similar to tho <■ asked of other western roads, and negotiations have been postponed pending a settlement of the Chicago controversy. ENGINEERS DECLARE THEY WILL NOT JOIN FIREMEN CLEVELAND, 0., March I*. Officers of the Brotherhood of Locomotive En- glneers, Which lias its heannuarters when Informed of the firemen's strike declared they knew nothing about it, and under no circumstances would the engineers In their organiza tion go out. They asserted that the engineer! would carry out their con tracts with the railroads, regardless of what action might be taken by the fire men and If necessary would employ non-union labor. The strike Is re ported here as a fight between labor organizations and Is not regarded as Important. Grand Chief Warren Stone declined to be quoted. MANY SOUTHERN PACIFIC FIREMEN WILL QUIT WORK SAN FRANCISCO, March 14.— E. E. Calvin, vice president and genera] man ager of the Southern Pacific, stated to night that the Btrtke order would affect between M and 95 per cent of the fire men "ii the Southern Pacific lines. "I have not been officially informed that a Strike has been ordered by the firemen," he said, "but I presume the men will walk out if ordered to do so. So far as I know, Hie company has not considered any plans of meeting the situation should it present Itself." 1000 HOSIERY WORKERS AT ROCKFORDOUT; PLANTS SHUT ROf'KFOKI>, 111-.

SENATOR FAILED TO HEAL BREACH ROOT UNABLE TO PLACATE NEW YORK FACTIONS WOODRUFF CLINGS TO OFFICE OF STATE CHAIRMAN Republican Leaders Fear Bitterness of Political Row May Result in State Being Won by Democrats tAssoclattd rrrs.il NBW YORK, March 14.—"Tho tame and inconclusive ending of Senator Hoofs brusque descent on New York" found expression today In the cheerful and bustling activity of Chairman Timothy t,. Woodruff and the moody countenances of the election captains, who straggled from state headquarters to county headquarters and then sat down in back rooms to talk it over. Chairman Woodruff was all smiles. "I see," he said, "that the morning papers quoted me today on my con ference last night with Senator Root as making but one comment, three times repeated, with varying degrees of emphasis—'ask Root.' That's right." It la felt now that even the most progressive and ambitious spirits be lieved that for the present the policy of those in charge will be to run with the wind, keeping a sharp ey,- ahead for reefs and breakers, pending the ar rival of Theodore Roosevelt, Woodruff will remain chairman, but he does not say himself he will run for that place again. With the departure of Senator Root today for Washington to inform Presi dent Tart of the result of his confer ences with State Chairman Woodruff and the local Republican leaders on the question of Woodruffs retirement from the chairmanship, looms a politi cal situation which in its larger mean ing bears directly, not only on the coming state campaign next fall, but on the national campaign of 1912. Fear Democratic Success The administration, through Senator Root, has made It clear to the party leaders in this state that New York must not be lost to the Democrats in the gubernatorial election, for such a defeat would endanger the party's suc cess two years later. To this i nd, Senator Root informed Chairman Woodruff that the opposition to Governor Hughes and his measures must cease, and the suggestion is said to have been directly made that the federal power would be used to thwart such opposition If it continued. Whether Senator Root sought to force Mr. Woodruff from the state chairmanship as an initial step to wrest control from the so-called "ma chine" lawyers, was the subject of much conjecture at Republican state headquarters today. "I am still here," said Chairman Woodruff today. "There's much more than the chair manship of the state committee in volved in this matter," said an Up state leader today. "President Tuft and his friends are setting the stage of the national campaign of 1013 and the administration feels that unless the president's state organization joins with Governor Hughes a party split will follow that will Rive, the state to the Democrats next November." Roosevelt May Be Leader It is persistently asserted that in the event of a threatened split Theodore Roosevelt may be asked to assume the leadership of the party. A close adviser of Mr. Woodruff said today: "The Hlnman-Green bill for direct nomination won't go through, but the bill drawn by the special committee, which Is a modification of the Hlnman- Green measure,' will bo accepted. Chairman Woodruff tells me that the stories told by certain congressmen In Washington that Senator Allda is to be whitewashed have no basis in fact." MINERS WILL MEET BUT HAVE NO PLANS SUB-SCALE COMMITTEE FAILS TO RECOMMEND Special Convention Is to Be Held on Broad Lines —Pies. Lewis Says That Demands of Men Will Be Granted CINCINNATI, March Contrary to expectations the special convention of the United Mine Workers of Amer lea will organize In this city tomorrow without anything definite in view. This stats of affairs has been, brought about through the inability of the sub scalo committee of the joint conference of miners and operators of Ohio, In diana and western Pennsylvania to reach an agreement regarding the wage scale for the coming two years. The convention will adiourn subject to the call of the chairman, which will be issued when the scale committee of the joint conference is ready to report. Tills subcommittee adjourned today to meet tomorrow. In speaking of conditions tonight President Lewis of the, miners said: ■I am still convinced that ilu-re will he no strike and that the demands of the miners will be granted." Mr. Lewis declared the miners will fight in the supreme court of the railed States the adverse decision given Saturday at Richmond, Va. Mr. Lewis was one of the defendants in the ease. "The decision, if allowed tr rtand, would be the most detrimental to or ganized labor of any ever handed down in the country," he said, "but it won't Stand. All through the. various trials we simply have been building the foundation for the presentation of the entire case to the supreme court. "The injunction affects only three mines and would not hinder us In our efforts to close down West Virginia, should the present Cincinnati negotia tions terminate unsuccessfully."
