. New York, Nov 19 John D. Rock
efeller went on the witness stand
when the Standard Oil hearing was
resumed this forenoon. His counsel
said that Mr Rockefeller will prob
ably be on the stand all day.
It was announced that after Mr
Rockefeller's cross examination by
government counsel John ,D. Arch
bold, vice president of the Standard
Oil-Co, will take the witness stand.
The hearing' was transferred to
day to a larger -room in order to ac
commodate numerous counsel and
reporters. Policemen were stationed
in the corridors and only those hav
ing friends connected with the pro
ceedings were permitted to f enter
Mr Rockefeller was -smiling as he
took the witness stand and resumed
his testimony.
Mr Rockefeller's counsel again
called his attention to the uncertain
ties of the oil business In the early
70's and asked. him what bearing the
supply of raw material had thereon.
It had an important bearing and
must always have such importance
asvwe never know when the supply
may give our rendering the proper
ties for the refining of oil compara
tively valueless,"' replied Mr Rocke
feller. He added that in the early
oil business the supply of crude oil
was limited to a small area coming
principally " from Venago county
Pennsylvania. ". .. . -
Mr Rockefeller said that the1 oil
business was made hazardous be
cause of the apprehension .that . the
supply of crude oil - would be ex
hausted. Some of the oil wells were
very short livedo . Mr Rockefeller's
counsel then asked him if he recall
ed that a producers' union was form.
ed at the time of the agitation re
garding the South Improvement Co.
"Yes," replied Mr Rockefeller, "it
was formed a -little later and was
composed of a large proportion kf the
oil producers." That led to an as
sociation of oil refiners who were de
sirous ot haying , a supply of crude
oil Which was not controlled by in
terests antagonistic to them and the
refiners also wanted to be assured of
a market for their raw material.
. "We desired ,V; pleasant relations
with the producers," said Mr Kocke
feller; -'V ':'-" -v --'-'y
In December', 1872, Mr Rockefeller
said; fh8"'TlrctceTsrn1cm"aiia ' tlirt
refiners' association entered Into an
agreement, the purpose of which .was
"to secure aB high a price far.tbe
crude oil as possible," and to intro
duce an element of regularity into
the business which had been fluctuat
ing greatly.' Mr Rockefeller was un
able to give the number of producers
In the union but it included a -large
percentage of all of them and the
refiners' association included a large
proportion of the refiners.' By direc
tion of his counsel." Mr Rockefeller
noted that the agreement fixed the
price of all crude oil at $5 per bar
rel at common points. The operation
of that agreement he sail stimulated
an over production ot oil beyond
what the refiners could use at that
price. The temptation was ' very
great with the producers to develop
more oil than they had promised to
the refiners. The refiners could only
take as much oil as the public would
consume. As a result the produce
violated the agreement and sold
their oil under f he price which had
been fixed. The agreement did not
last long said Mr Rockefeller.
Escaped from Jail."
New Haven, Nov 19. Choosing a
time when practically everyone else
connected with the institution was at
supper, four colored prisoners es
caped from the county jail on'Whal
ley avenue last evening,' getting out
over the little ell at the rear, and
probably crossing to Hudson or
Goffe streets. .Two men and two
women escaped;' Henry Adley, Wil
liam Hannibal, Florence . Epps and
Bertha Robinson. All the prisoners
were trusties. The escape was dis
covered about fifteen minutes after
the prisoners Bad gone. The four
went through the cellar, up and over
the back of the boilers and out onto
a roof which is about six feet from
the ground. This was easy to drop
from and soon they were safely acrost
the yard to either Goffe or Hudson
street. An alarm with descriptions
of the prisoners has been sent to all
the neighboring towns and cities, as
well as to the local police. It Is be
lieved that some former friends of
the escaped prisoners, up - Dixwell
avenue or Goffe street, are hiding
them until the affair blows over.
For Third Conference.
The Hague, Nov 19.- The govern
ment of the Netherlands has proposed
to advocate the convocation of an in
ternational committee to arrange for
a third peace conference. ' During a
debate in parliament on the foreign
office budget Foreign Minister Van
Swinderen made 'a general statement
on international politics. In the
course of which he said he had de
clined to ask the powers for a declar

course would have- been Incompatible
with the independence of Holland.

Savi Hit Trio to Washington Was
; for Legitimate Business.
New Haven, Nov. 19, United
States Internal Revenue Collector
Robert O.. Eaton returned from
Washington last night, wherehe was
so hastily summoned on Monday that
rumor had it he had been "called
down" by the "Big Stick"" for per
nicious activity in the recent cam
paign. -, -
Mr "Eaton when interviewed by a
reporter of the Palladium said that
his visit to the center of the universe
had nothing to do with the fact that
he is a member .of the republican
state central commtitee, that he is
the political treasurer of his party
in his home section, and that be has
been active in politics.
He said that he was called in by
the head of the revenue service to ex
plain some matters which had come
up under his predecessor, and which
could be readily explained. After
saying this Mr Eaton went on his
way to a "joy party" which Sam R.
Chldsey, representative-elect from
East Haven was giving at the Union
There's an intimation, however,
among thte hew-to-the-line machine
politicians that Mr Eaton was called
to Washington to interest himself in
the canvass for senator which the
Hon E. J. Hill, is advancing.-, Mr
Eaton has hitherto been supposed to
have been allied with the Brandegee
supporters the so-called - machine
crowd. He is still supposed to be a
strong Brandegee man, but he declin
ed to discuss the senatorial situation
last night. He would not admit that
he was standing by Congressman
Sperry's alleged backing up of Post
master Allen of Middletown. ;
In fact it is said that Mr Eaton has
absolutely no part In the fight over
the filling of ,tbe postmastershlp in
Middletown . which It seems to be
claimed the administration' Is "trying
to use to help Hill along. - The claim
IS made that Hill is more acceptable
as a senator to the administration
than - Brandegee because the latter
voted against the' administration
scheme regarding the Philippines..
Said a New Haven republican lead'-,
er last night: "The organization is
still cock sure that Brandegee will
win out over Hill."
Change In Duty May be Made on
, Several Kinds of Fruit.
Washington, Nov 19. In the pre
paration of a new tariff bill to be
presented at a special session of
congress next March numerous
changes in the schedule covering ag
ricultural products 'and provisions
will have to be considered by the
ways and means committee of the
bouse. This was brought out at yes
terday's hearing on ; the schedule.
The principal article about which
there Is a contention for a change
in the duty appears to be citrus
fruits, oranges, lemons and grape
fruit. '
After hearing arguments from the
Florida an California citrus fruit
growers all urging a high protective
duty on those fruits, Champ Clark,
the most active questioner on the
democratic or "duty for revenue"
side of the committee asked one of
the witnesses "when are you fellows
going to Btand on your feet and have
your trade self-supporting without
the perpetual protection of tariff."
. "When the democratic party gets
in power and labor is reduced to 25
cents per day," was the sharp re
joinder. The Florida fruit growers claimed
that their principal competition - is
from Cuba. J. G. Chase from Jack
sonville claimed that the. advalorem
rate of duty of 25 per cent on oran
ges is made up by the lower freight
rates from Cuba to New York than
from Florida to New York. ' Tapioca
starch will be affected by - the
changes in the' specific requirements
of the tariff that have been suggest
ed. Senator Hale of Maine, made
the claim that "when the Dingley
bill was made, by inattention 4apioca
starch was not specifically provided
for and it was left on the free list."
Mr Payne, chairman of the com
mittee told Senator Hale that a
change in the wording of the law
has been suggested so that upon all
preparations used for starching, ail
ing, or filling will be levied the same
duty that is imposed on starch. He
also said that the paragraph making
this provision was cut out of ths
Dingley bill by the senate committee
after the bill had passed the house
which assertion caused general
laughter as Senator Hale Is imw u
member of the senate committee
which will consider the tariff.
Buckwheat flour, biscuits, bread,
wafers, 'truffles and similar articles
will be ' provided for in the new
bill. ' .
When the hearing before the
house ways and means committee on
the tariff schedule for, agricultural
products and provisions was resumed
to-day it appeared that it would be
necessary to extend the day's session
into to-night. Tullo Larrinaga. re
cent commiss'oner from Porto Rico,
represents the Interests of that Is
land before the committee!- He spoke
principally, with regard to coffee, but
Denver, Col, Nov 19. -By previous
arrangements the report of the com
mittee to Which was referred the an
nual address of President Gompers
was the first thing up for considera
tion when the American Federation
of Labor began its sessions to-day.
Rumor that the report would uphold
every recommendation contained in
the address of President Gompers
and would suggest that Daniel J.
Keefe, president ot the Longshore
men's onion and vice-president of the
Federation,, should .have reslgnod
from the executive council when ho
found he could not support the politi
cal programme of that body an
nounced for the recent campaign, re
sulted in partial decision on the part
of at least one member of the Fed
eration to oppose iim for re-election
to the office he now holds, w. D,
Mahon, international president of the
Amalgamated Association ot, Street
and Electrical Railway Employes of
America, will doubtless enter the list?
against Keefe. - John Alpine, presi
dent of the Plumbers' International
union, may also run against him. It
is also reported that Thomas L.
Lewis, president of the United Mioo
Workers of America, has concluded
not to oppose Joh.n Mitchell for re
election to the executive council.

The suit of Walter S. Atwood, Jr,
a foreman for the Plume & At w odd
Manufacturing Co, against the Con
necticut Co, occupied the Jury, and
Judge Bennett in the superior court
to-day.;- One Wednesday evening yn
July, 1907, Mr Atwood while driving
home in a hack was run down by a
trolley car ou EaBt Main street be
tween Phoenix avenue and Exchange
place. The motorman was- arrested
for overspeeding his car within thia
city limits, was found guilty ' and
fined in the city court. That case
was appealed and what became of it
no one seems to know, for evidently;
that was the last beard- of it. . The
hack driver was. thrown off and in
jured and Mr Atwood was considera
bly knocked about in the hack. Htj
claims to have Buffered' a great nerv
ous shock and that he ,was; injured
internally also. , He claimed ., dam
ages of $2,000, alleging that he' wda
laid up for some time and expended
$200 in medicine and doctor's bllfs.

resented by three lawyers, " City At
torney Kellogg and two fronr New;
Haven, while the plaintiff's case is in
the hands of but one,, Cassidy. It

of Mr Atwood that about the
time of the accident and for a period
prior thereto he had been a severe
sufferer from nervous disorders and
tliat in consequence be was using
powerful drugs, morphine being one
of them. 1 He is now ' in normal
health, however, and is no longer,
using drugs or medicines of any nature.-
