KELLOGG ATTACKS OIL TRUST TRICKS Counsel Shows That Pipe line Stations Were Located Far From Refineries Products Sold at Loss in Los Angeles Because Octopus Had Competition WASHINGTON*. March 15.— Holding • up the Standard oil company of New Jersey as a danger to the country and Us organization as a commercial prece dent that should be eradicated from the business world, Frank B. Kellogg arraigned the corporation today before t!i*- supreme court of the United States. It was the government's turn to be h<arj in the argument over the disso lution of the company, as decreed by tlie circuit court of the Untied States for the eastern district' of Missouri. Kxcept about 20 minutes that- John G. Milburn consumed at the beginning of the sitting in the conclusion of \u25a0 his opening address, and about an equal length of time occupied by D. T. Wat son, at the close of the bay, both in defense of the Standard oil, all the time was taken up by Kellogg. WICKKnSHAM TO CLOSE CASE He israve a history of the Standard oil anil its activities, with frequent comments on the law of the case. He seemed inclined to leave many of the legral points for discussion by Attorney General Wickersham. who Js to close the case for the government tomorrow. The court manifested keen interest fn the case by subjecting counsel to ;i series of queries, particularly with regard to the common ownership claimed by the Standard oil counsel, and the meaning that should be given the word "monopoly" as used- in the Sherman anti-trust act. SHARP CO.VFLICT DV COUNSEL The day brought out a sharp con flict of purposes between the govern ment and. Standard oil. Kellogg, on behalf of the government, dwelt upon the activities of the corporation •to prove an intent to monopolize while tiae tfiar.dard o!l counsel contended that Sttrii luatters -were not before the court. Kellogg charged that the Standard oil. sirce its pipe li»es had been made comraon carriero. had established de- livery stations at "outlandish places, wher<? nobody t*. r »r had a refinery." Their rates -w*ere prohibitive, coun sel said, and that was the reason ap plications to use the pipe lines had not been made by independents. Railroad rates, as- a means of unfair competition, were next considered. Kellogg spoke of tb*? number of Stand ard oil officials In many railroads and then returned to uthat he called the unfair methods of .competition. As an example, he .told ef the Stand ard selling oil at a lotos in Los Angeles, where there was competition, and at a profit in Portland, Or, and Seattle, where there was no «*rrapetiti«n. BOGUS COXCER\S ATTACKED " Alleged bogrus indep*>twießt companies organized by the StanAird MWire like wise classed as dangerous "to competi tion. The 20 minutes occupied by D. T. Watson for tire company were devoted to the argument that the cmly thing the circuit <ourt below held to be In violation ocf tlie Sherman anti-trust law was tl*e combination of 1599. He mafutainod that no othetr point was before tlie supreme court, and as lie described it, "the things Kellogrg has spent tiiree-ftourths of his •time talking about have rsothing to do with the is sue."

The. lrjeasurejiirects the United 1 Railroads to route its Sutter street cars to the ferry by way of. the inner tracks in Market street. ' / . , WALSH RESOLUTION CHANGES SITUATION At today's session of the utilities committee, 4the Bancroft proposal, the discredited permit, and the city attorney's opinion/on the general subject will come up for consideration. The action of the/ board, Monday authorizinj? proceedings toward the forfeiture of the 'Sutter company's franchise. in lower Market street has put an entirely different correplexion on thesjtuation.N It would obviously place the administration in a paradoxical position should it now- decide to give a' permit to a corporation whose very existence it is now denying. \u25a0 • \u25a0 i • . - The opinion of City Attorney Long,, it is understood, will cover this point. The ruling will be communicated to the committee this afternoon. "It seems to me," said Long yesterday, "that it isf almost unnecessary for me to render an opinion in view of Monday's proceedings of the board. The supervisors at that time directed our office to prepare to contest the Sutter street company's franchise. It is: not necessary fc/ir the supervisors under these circumstances to act on any application for a temporary permit. •MUST PROTECT LEGAL STATUS ../, "The status of the entire affair is changed by the Walsh resolution. Under this it becomes our duty to gather the evidence to bring about the forfeiture of the Sutter company's Market street franchise. The city is on record 'as committed to this policy, and, naturally,/ 1 think that anything that could in any degree endanger our position incourtj should be avoided." On the calendar for today's meeting of the utilities committees are both the Bancroft ordinance and the objectionable p/ermit. The latter had the (indorsement of four members at the last, meqUng, but there_has been a decided change since then and the proposed permit may be effectively quashed. It is possible that under the impetus of Monday's board meeting the Bancroft ordinance will find favor, in the eyes of the committee. It contains no recognition of the Sutter street company, bufc directs the United Railroads to give the through service. j TEMPORARY PERMITS BECOME PERMANENT Further objection was raised yesterday to a temporary permit on the ground that it became automatically" a permanent permit. To substantiate this opinion cases were cited in which the Unsted Railroads had appropriated privileges which had been originally nothing' more than temporary permits. An instance in point is the temporary /permit in Stanyan street from Fulton to Hayes. The permit was given November 20, 1906, for brief use, but the company still retains it and has gqne to the courts to fight ouster proceedings. The curve at Second and Market streets was installed under a permit granted' October 15, 1908. . Permission was given for this switch October 15, 1908, to aid the company in /reconstructing its lines in lower Market street. The switch was to have been removed in a-few weeks, but it still remains. / The same is true of the curve, at Eighth and Market streets. It was built under a temporary permit under date of April 5, 1909, so that the United Railroads could route its Market street /cars down Mission street during a period of construction. The temporary p/ermit has remained undisturbed. USING SWITCHES WITHOUT FRANCHISES Old switches are being operated /without franchises. The company operates its Eddy street cars down Market street without official permission or authorization. / . . ' The beginning, however, will be iriade on the proceedings involving the Sutter street railroad company. The <£ity attorney will apply to the attorney general to proceed in the name of the/people. Attorney General U. S. Webb has already said that this permission,/ will be granted. A regular complaint will then be drawn up in the office of the city attorney and filed in the superior court The company will answer and/the case will go to trial. . The city's case will be handled b^ Assistant City Attorney Jesse Steinhart. It will require three or four weeks to gather the data and to prepare the necessary documents. The issue /should be brought to a decision within three months. / WILL RUN /GEARY CARS TO THE FERRY Continued From Page One the unnecessary expense of installing a switch.** / Asked if he believed that tlie United Railroads had at any time exhibited a spirit of fairness or a disposition to meet the people half way, / the mayor replleJ: I "I can only say that if/l were con ducting the company's affairs In good faith I would adopt a policy entirely different. § My inquiries «irected to the members of the public' utilities . com mittee indicate that the; representatives of the United Railroads have been un willing to make concessions which in volved consideration /of Geary street." "Are you going to get j the Geary street cars to the ferry?" j "I am," was McCarthy's emphatic re ply. "I have had my heart/ set "on that for years. .

Trevor & Sloan did not collect any of them until -after an ordinance had been .passed authorizing the ap pointment of a collector.l do not know Boeckman and would not < recognize him If I met him in the street.

V, March 15.— With mi croscopic slides and photographs 77 times enlarged and ah expert to explain them. Senator Allds* attorneys today attacked the reliability of Hiram G. Moe, star witness for the accuser In the senate bribery scandaL The expert, Albert W. Hamnton of Auburn, declared that while the check which Senator Conger put in evidence as the source of the corruption fund brought to Al bany by Moe and distributed to Allds and two others was drawn for $6,500, the amount on the stub from which tha check was torn was originally $6,000. He testified that this stub entry had been raised $500 since the present In vestigation began to make its figure* agree with those on the check. Allds* attorneys regarded this testi mony as their trump card and reserved it to the last. Mac's story that ha brought $6,500 to Albany when only $6,000 was necessary to buy the protec tion desired by the bridge companies has from the first been regarded as the weakest point in his story. Mcc testi fied that he took this $500 back with him to Groton and deposited it to Frank Conger's account, but its final disposi tion was never definitely traced. A year ago Senator Allds received between $6,000 and $7,000 for bis serv ices In helping the Arg-us publishing company of Albany to recover $21,500 on an old printing claim against the state. The attorneys for Senator Conger, who accuses Allds of taking a cash bribe in 1901, wrung: the facts of this recent transaction from Allds on the witness stand today and did their b«st to make it appear that it was only an other form of taking money for his influence as a member of the legisla ture. , I- \u0084 Allds confessed that he advised ' the claimants to get the legislature to pass an act enabling the court of claims to pass on this claim, and although for mer attempts to enact laws to the same effect had failed, the ! legislature of 1909 passed a general measure. Gov ernor Hughes signed it and the Argus claim went through. Senator Allds* attorney fought hartf to exclude this evidence, but was over ruled. Police Officials Suspended ST.
