Telephone: Business office and Editorial Room, 603. Advertising rates made known on application. MONDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1IH17. THE STANDARD oil, COMPANY The Standard Oil Company lias is sued another circular to Its em ployees and stockholders, copies of which have been sent out to the press all over the country. The re cent circular is similar to the one sent out some two months ago fol lowing close upon the huge fine Im posed by Judge Landis. The cir cular just Issued is believed to an ticipate the decision of the suit now pending for the dissolution of the Standard Oil company of New Jer The circular assures the public of its absolute innocence of wrong do ing in any of the prosecution’s late ly instituted against it in the federal courts, particularly so in the sensa tional fine of $119,240,000. The circular declares that It should be known as widely as pos sible that this was no case of re bate or discrimination, but simply the legality of a freight rate. It say? that-if the judgment is allowed to stand the company will U* forced to Pay fifty times the value of the oil carried over the Chicago & Alton during two years at an open (? cent rate—a rate used over three com peting railroads for from t**n to four teen years. it says that the trial judge refused to allow proof that the 6 cent rate had been filed by the Chicago and Eastern Illinois, and was, therefone, a “legal rate.” It is refreshing to know that the greatest of trusts is now willing to take the public into its confidence UntH »he $29,240,000 fine the Stan dard was Impervious to public sen timent, and insolently ignoned the demands of the public. E. H. Harriman, the railroad king has also been Impervious to public sentiment, but when he felt his former grasp upon -the railroads of the United States slipping from un <V-r his control he cries enough, and says he is sick of It, and that the papers should give both sides. The papers are always willing to give both sides, but the Standard. Harri man and other of the same ilk have long ignored the public—the day of n-ckonlng has come—and now they And their only salvation in being frank and appealing to the public for a square deal. An outrage—filling »p the entire editorial page of the Fairmont West Virginian with one man's advertise ment. We are going to have the law on somebody for this.—^tate Jour nal. QrKRY:—Whether the filling of ‘ :he entire editorial page with one man's advertisement," or the favor able comment upon eulogies of the editor who is a candidate for office is the greater sin. The editor of the Fairmont West Virginian is a candidate for state superintendent of schools, while the editor of the State Journal would like to go to congress. Both editors find great pleasure in blowing their own horns, and as one state paper recently said: If you want to please a West Vir ginia editor, boom him for office.” PUBLIC OPINION West Virginia congressmen are for the policy of stand pot, and they want no tariff revisionist for presi dent. But, as the state has been promised to Mr. Taft, who Is a tariff revisionist, it is up to the congress men to bow gracefully to the will of the powers that be.—Huntington Ad vertiser. \«4 a 4 nndidntc. Hon. Klllott Norfhcott Is trying to prove that be is able to thrust aside such kittle honors as the governorship of West Virginia. In all of his decla rations, politically. he emphasizes very strongly that under no consider ations would he fgscept the nomina tion. because he Is malting for Judge Keiiar to either die or resign so he can l>e his successor. The opposition to the Hwlsher can didacy has caused Mr Sort hcott to again swear aiiegianoc to him. To make his last pledge he hurried to Washington and before the senior I aenator pledged anew his support to that faction, Menator Klkina had be come worried over the Rwlsher can didacy and he summoned the ITuot-1 Ington statesman to appear before him and read his uotes. After this was done the senator hurried to Wall Street to consult his friends and so licit help for his gubernatorial can didate. And this 1* the story: Sen ator Elkins Is soliciting supj>ort from Wall street for Swisher. This being true tho Republican campaign fund In this state next year will be very large and will mostly come from New York.—Clarksburg News. Will S'ot Retire. There has been u good deal of un called for discussion about the pos sible retirement or Admiral Robley I). Evans before the battleship squadron sails Tor the Pacific. This has been set at rest by Admiral Evans’ own statement that he Is not going to retire till he is placed on the retired list by Deration of law. Ad miral Evans is not one of tho young er officers of the navy, but he Is not Huperannuated by any means. He has had the experience In fh*-t com mand to handle the big squadron, for it will not be a light undertaking by any means. The ship captains un der him will have had tho experi ence by the time the Pacific coast is reached and probably one of them will bring the squadron back when it comes. If it ever does come. But Admiral Evans has earned the dis tinction of the command If any man in the navy has and It Is to be hoped •hat his health will hold out. to take 'he squadron around the Horn and thus crown the record of a long and honorable service by a notable achievement.—Fairmont West Vir ginian.
