WASHINGTON', Sept. 21. The Inter
national Congress on tuberculosis con
vened here today, and will remain in ses
sion until Oct. 12.
A voluminous report has been prepared
by both the Missouri Association for the
Kelief and Contiol of Tuberculosis and
the St. Louis Society for the Relief and
Prevention of Tuberculosis, and will be
presented during the sessions.
Both associations arc allied with the
national organization and have taken
leading part in the world-wide fight to
prevent the spread of the disease and
to relieve the sufferers.
Much good has been done in the last
year, and plans for the future embraces a
campaign upon broader lines. Through
legislation, literature and actual work
among persons who have the disease, it
is hoped to bring about a greater success,
although the two societies believe, and
show in their reports, that a great work
already has been done.
Progress has been hampered by lack
of funds and need of legislation among
other things, and it is to overcome these
obstacles that the coming year's work
will be carried on.
Since the first meeting of the State So
ciety at Jefferson City, May 13, 1907,
nine counties have been organized into
subsidiary organizations, and applica
tions for membership have been received
for nineteen other counties. A traveling
exhibit is planned, and at the next ses

to help in the further spread of the

taken. I never bad any connection with
the Standard Oil Co. nor any of its of
ficers, either in a business or social way,
and I have never had the pleasure of
the acquaintance of any of the officials
or members of the Standard Oil Co. I
do not recall ever having a case involv
ing the Standard Oil Co. while I held
the position of Marshal for the Northern
District of Ohio, from 1892 to 1S9G. So

I have no idea what Haskell Mr. ncarst

may be satisfactorily concluded, illus

My Dear Senator:
I venture to write you a word re
garding the bill introduced by Senator
Jones of Arkansas, known as S. 049,
intended to amend the act "to protect
trade and commerce against unlawful
restraints ami monopolies, etc., in
troduced by him December 4.
It really seems as though this bill is
very unnecessarily severe and even
vicious. Is it not much better to test
the application of the Sherman Act
liefore resorting to a measure of this
kind? I hope you will feel so about
it, and I will lie greatly pleased to
have a word from you on the sub
ject. The bill is, I believe, still in

Troops, .5,000 Strong, Will
Assemble There During
Coming Week.
ST, JOSEPH, Sept. 21. The War De
partment has ordered 5,000 troops to
assemble at St. Joseph. Mo., next week,
for the purpose of holding a military
tournament. This is done as a diver
sion from routine life in the forts, as
well as to give the public a chance to
see the soldiers of this country.
The carnival or tournament is na
tional in its character. It is managed
and directed exclusively by the War
Department, as the Government will not
lend or hire its soldiers to private or
municipal amusement enterprises.
The first and experimental effort of the
War Department at assembling of troops,
representing all branches of the service
foi tournament purposes was made last
ear, when 3,000 men were ordered to St.
Joseph. The beneficial effect of the first
tournament upon the troops was so ap
parent at once, and the public was so
well pleased with the opportunity to be
come letter acquainted with its fighting
forces, that the War Department decided
on another tournament for this vear.
"A friend of mine, a newspaper man.
informed me that he held an option on
the Ohio State Journal to purchase it,
according to my present recollection, for
$135,000. He was able himself to ad
vance but a small amount of this pur
chase price. He applied to me to help
him. I did not have enough monev to
le of very material assistance, but for
the sake of having the paper in friendly
hands, I was willing to advance part of
it. I applied to a number of friends to
see if they would not make up the bal
ance of the amount. Among others I ap
plied to the Standard Oil Company."
"They agreed to loan to the newspaper
company, when purchased and reorgan
ized, $350,000, according to my present
recollection, the same to be secured by
stock of the newspaper company. Some
body who was expected to go into the
enterprise dropped out, and that made
it necessary for all the others to increase
the amounts they were proposing to ad
vance. At the request of my friend, I
asked the different parties to increase
their advances,and thereupon the Stand
ard Oil Company did accordingly in
crease their amount from $35,000 to $50,
000, and sent me the letter with certifi
cate inclosed as stated.
COLUMBUS, O., Sept. 21. Frank S.
Monnctt, who was Attornev-Gencral of
Ohio from 1S90 to 1900, today told how
he was offeied a bribe of $400,000 while
he was in office by a man who said he

who were alleged by the go-between
as being responsible for the management
of the bribe negotiations.

Says He Returned Draft.
"It was thought at that time the
transaction would be immediately
closed, but there was a delay of a
few days, and at the end of that de
lay the whole transaction fell to the
ground! because other people stepped
in and purchased the property.
Thereupon I returned the draft to the
Standard Oil Company. I had no em
ployment in the matter and never de
rived a cent of profit from it and nev
er made any charge on account of it
to anyliody.

or not. it had no reference to any em
ployment of any kind from the Stand

did the letters about Smith Bennett and

of Mr. Bennett, notwithstanding Mr.

Told of Standard's Power.
"As he laid them down he told me
that he was an attorney for the com
pany. I at first discussed the impropri
ety and danger of his representing the
trusts, criminal and civil violators of
the laws of his own state, as long as he.
as well as myself, should bo interested
in the welfare of the people of Ohio.
"He told me that he never allowed his
law practice to interfere with politics
or his politics with his law practice, and
ulded that he was judgy of ethics of
our profession. He then took up the
cause of action against these companies
and reminded me of the great power,
financially and politically, of the Stan
dard Oil crowd.
"After talking a short time he asked
me to have the proceedings delayed in
order to accommodate him I firmly de
clined to concede any time whatever and
told him so. He recalled the great power
of the Oil Trust to anyone opposed to
Squires' Telegram.
"After that interview wc dealt at
arm's length and not as political allies.
I received at the same time while in
Washington, I think possibly the next
day, a telegram from C. B. Squires, at
Cleveland, in which he said: 'Make no
agreement with anvone in Washin"ton
about important business matter until
I can see you.'
Got Telephone Message.
"I did not understand this telegram,
and when I returned to Columbus I was
called up by telephone from Cleveland
by this same Mr. Squires and he told
me that he was sick in bed and would
come down and sec me at my office !
just as soon as he could, and that I
should not deal with anyone cle until '
he could sec inc. He stated in that tele-
phone message that he had wired me
for fear that I would compromise the i
Standard Oil case ponding in the Su-j
prcme Court and he did not want me
to do this until after he had ecn mc.
"It was several davs after this tele-
lumbus to see me and it was then that
he made the proposition that una mVn

of Oklahoma.
