No less than six United Stales senators have received telegrams signed

not been possible to obtain a copy COP of these dispatches which it can be said are ar
practically Pratf alIy Identical Substantially they read as as follows

Yesterday morning one of the counsel for the Standard Oil company arrived
11 19 1I Washington and called Immediately on members of the senate as Indicated
In the telegrams He did not remain long Scarcely had he made known his
business when he was informed a bit curtly curt that his presence here was unde undesirable undefiirnblc undeiirabie ¬
sirable and he left with an intimation that he would return to New York
During the afternoon information concerning > the receipt of the message leaked leakedout leakedout leakedtiut
out and became the subject of some quiet cloakroom discussion at the senate

Then it became be < ame known that this was not not the first time the Standard Oil
ompany through its attorneys had ha endeavored to influence legislation in con ¬
gress ress at this session The attorneys for the company It is said had opposed
vigorously the enactment of the measures submitted by Attorney General
Knox I < nox to the subcommittee of the house judiciary committee Subsequently
r when what is known as the Littlefield bill was reported to the house it can be
said on the best of authority that the Standard Oil companys counsel began
to devote their attention particularly to the Nelson amendment to section 6 6oi 6of
oi 0 the department of commerce bill The amendment which contains prac ¬
tically titall the publicity features of the Knox antitrust bill they did not want
