Additional Disclosures as
to Juggling With

Beyond All Imagination.
New York. Sept. IS Wesley II.
Tilford, treasurer or the Standard Oil
company, was question today by Frank
B. Kellogg, who is conducting the
federal suit against the oil combine,
in an effort to glean further facts and
figures concerning the development of
the Standard Oil trust and its subse
quent liquidation into the present com
pany. Kellogg said today the records of
the liquidation trustees, which ha 1
been finally furnished by the Stand
ard company, were lniing examined by
the government's counsel that it in islil
be subpoenaed as a result of develop
ments of tiie lat few days and that
the hearings would likely be prolonged
for some time.
Tilford testified that John I). Rocke
feller owned more than one-fourth ol'
the Standard Oil trust. He said he
owned 250,851 shares out of a totu".
of shares of trust certificates
in lS'J, that a later assignment was
made transferring to Rockefeller his
proportionate intirest and stocks of
the subsidiary companies.

elations of the enormous profits of the
Standard Oil company marked yester
day's hearing of the government's quest
for information to be used in the suit
to dissolve the trust. Stock juggling
operations of the combine and tin?
enormous earnings of the subsidiary
corporations were the sensational feat
ures in the day's hearing by the gov
ernment. Profits of more than l.uuO
per cent per year are made by the.
Standard Oil company of Indiana, the

$29,21(1,0(10 by Judge Landis in Chi

Outside of the Standard Oil company
of New York by far the most profitable
of the subsidiary concerns is the Stand
ard Oil company of Indiana, which re
cently was fined $29,24n,uio by Judge
Landis. Its statement of earnings
shows that on a capitalization of $1.
000,000 this company in P.iot; earned
for the Standard, which holds 9.990
shares of its stock, the enormous profit
of $10,510,082, or at the rate of more
than 1,000 per cent a year.
The earnings of the Indiana 'com
pany last year were more than those
of any other company in the trust.
All this Prosecutor Kellogg drew
from Clarence O. Fay, acting controller
of the Standard Oil company of New
Jersey. Mr. Fay '6 memory was quite
as faulty as the previous day, and fail

curious example of the Standard's fi

pointed out that iu 190-1 the New York
subsidiary made a profit of $7,751,100,
and paid iu dividends to the Standard

sum of $:;2,ys.lL;o. This transaction

Charles M. Pratt, secretary of the
Standard Oil company of New Jersey,
was recalled to the witness stand and
told how he had held for the Standard
Oil company the stock of the Waters-

not permitted to operate in the state
Mr. Pratt was examined by Mr. Kel

These shares were held by the witness
