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
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.”
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

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

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
