VITH lETTER OF LAW
Views of William G Rockefeller
Anent the Standard Oil
Decision
New York Nov 24Wllllam Rocke
feller a vice presIdent and director of
the Standard 011 company gave a dif
ferent color today to the appeal which
Mortimer Elliott the companys gen
eral solicitor had announced is to be
taken from the decree of the United
States court
Legal affairs of the company Mr
Rockefeller said would continue to ra
main 1n the hands of Its legal depart
ment but as a layman he wished to in
dicate that his own attitude and that
of his associates had its share of al
truism
It seems to me desirable he said
not only for my own interests and
those of my associates but for the pub
lic at large and for all other great busi
ness ventures that the Sherman act
should be finally set beyond contention
as interpreted by the supreme court ot
the United States Undoubtedly our
case will be appealed and for this rea
son I am not a lawyer and cannot dis
cuss the decree of the circUIt court but
Mr Elliott has said that an appeal will
be taken and the matter Is entirely In
hands of counsel of the company
In this connection I want to say as
a large stockholder however as the
case eventuates there will be no unwill
Ingness to comply fully not only with
the letter but the spirit ot the law as
it shall be settled by the supreme
court

gun to check a fire that again threat
ened the main shaft
If efforts to control the fire are not
successful early tomorrow it 15 prob
able the mine again will be sealed and
will remain so for weeks If not months
Today flames from the fire in the sec
ond vein 310 feet below the surface had
swept fifty feet up the main shaft Then
the fire was forced back Mine Man
ager Taylor says that destruction of the
main shaft Is at all times Imminent and
with it will go the only possibility of
removing the bodies That no men sur
vive in the mine is now generally con
ceded even by The most optimistic
The only part ot the mine as yet un
explored and in which living men pos
sibly could be found is the east work
Ing of the second vein at the entrance
of which the fire is burning fiercely
Twice rescuing parties that have ven
tured past the fire area have ben tem
poraril cut off by the flames and res
cued with difficulty No further at
tempt to venture Into the fire zone will
be made until the fire is extinguished
which may be n work ot days
George S Rice of Pittsbur the
United States geological survey expert

black and white damp which it is be
lieved will be of use to the government

Regarding Philippine Cigars
Washington Nov 4Desplte a flood
of protests reach11s the treasury de
partment from American tobacco inter
ests flaying the government because ot
the use of a label which is claimed to
be the governments guaranty on Phil
ippine cigars the fault lies not with
the United States government but
with the Philippines which uses the
label complained of at Its discretion
This statement was made officially at
the treasury department today and It
was pointed out that the remedy lay
with congrcss
Cigars enter this country with a label
attached by the Philippine government
attesting their Production under gov
ernment regulation According to
Washington authorities where that la
bel does not encroach upon any of the
marks stamps or brands required by the
law and regulations of the treasury de
partment Its use cannot be objected to
The new tariff law differentiates plainly
between Internal revenue taxes collect
ed for the benefit of the United States
and Internal revenue taxes collecetd for
the benefit of the Philippine govern
ment The Philippines like Porto Rico
have a regularly organized taxation
system entirely separate from the inter
