SUIT TO REVEAL
JOHN D/S METHODS
Oil King and Associates will be Com
pelled to Testify in State's Suit
Suit to Drive the Company from
ST. LOUIS., Nov. 27.—John, D.
Rockefeller, Henry H. Rogers, Henry
M. Flagler aud eighteen other New
York financiers, connected with the
standard Oii Co., were today sub
pcenaed to give testimony in the
ouster proceedings instituted by Att
orney General Had ley to cane* I the
charters or the Standard. Republic,
and Wat ers Pierce oil companies, al
leging violation of Missouri state laws.
In arMitiou tc summoning rite New
York finsnciers to testify, Attorney
Genera] Hartley marie a master stroke
for the state today when he elicited
from \Villia»in A. Morgan, formerly re
r-irieut manager for the Standard Oil
Co. at Sedalia, Mo., that the com
pany's instructions were to undersell
competitors at all hazards ami drive
tin m from the field. Also taaf the
company had furnished f*l*e gauges
to ba uped in the war upon the fin..ll
-t r competitors.
Attorney General believes
that if the United Stt.Us eupxeme
court upholds the ruling of the St.
Paul couit. and gives aathoiity in in
vestigations of this kind to con pel
officials of defendant companies to
give testimony and to produce their
books ia open court, the ouster case
will he materially strengthened. He
will then be able to ask queslrions
concerning the methods under winch
these companies have been condncted,
the answers of which may put an en
tirely dirr'erent liaht on the case.
The decision to take the testimony
of the New York financiesr came as a
surprise to the defendant's attorneys
in St. Louis, .lust what he expects
to prove by the twenty-one witnesses
under the subpoena has not been an
uonneed, but he will undoubtedly
question them regarding the methods
used in conducting the affairs Jof the
Standard and other defendant com
panies in Missouii. He may also try
to prove that the twc companies, the
Republic and the Water-Pierce, are
kindred concerns of the Standard,
which is the principal contention ot
the state in this case.
