Whether or not John D.Mtockefeler will be com pelled to enlarge, the scope of his testimony with reference to the his tory of the Standard Oil. Co was ex pected to be decided soon after the hearing in the government's suit to dissolve that corporation was resum ed to-day. It bad been the plan of the Standard's attorneys to have Mr Rockefeller tell only of the compara tively early years of the company's existence, and when his direct ' ex amination was' concluded no refer ence had been made to any happen ing later that 1882. It was announc ed at that time that the remainder of the Standard's story would be told by John D..Archbold and other offi cers of the company- who are more familiar with the happenings of the last quarter century. Apparently this plan- did not meet with the ap proval of the government and from the first of his " cross examination Frank B. Kellogg, the government counsel, ' has sought to get beyond the barrier raised by the termination of Mr Rockefeller's direct examina tion. In this he was not successful but It Is his contention that Mr Rockefeller himself by one of his answers has made It possible for the government to go as far as it likes In the cross examination. In his tes timony Mr Rockefeller had said that the business "of refining oil was a hazardous one, "even up to the pres ent time." Mr Kellogg maintains that Mr Rockefeller's statement that the business-Is hazardous "up to the present time" opens up to him the whole period of the Standard's his tory from its formation until , to-day, Mr. Rockefeller testified that he did not conceive the plan of the forma tion of the Standard Oil trust In 1882. He said,"'! am sorry to say that I didn't, r I cannot claim any credit for that. Mr Flagler and S. C. T. Dodd conceived It." Refreshed by a day's rest Mr Rock efeller was smiling when Frank B. Kellogg as special assistant attorney general resumed his . cross examina tion. - Mr Kellogg's first inquiry was whether all the stockholders of the South, improvement Co afterwards became holders of stock In the Stand ard Oil Co of Ohio but Mr Rockefeller said he did not think so, and when Mr Kellogg read a list of the South Improvement- Co's stockholders Mr Rockefeller named several ' of them who he said did not hold stock in the Standard. Mr Rockefeller thought there was an Increase in the stock of the Standard Oil Co of Ohio from $2,500,000 to $3,500,000 in 1875. "In making the increase did you not submit a paper on which appeared the names of all the stockholders of the South Improvement Co?" asked Mr Kellogg. "The paper would be the best evi dence," replied Mr Rockefeller. ' Mr "Kellogg then read several names from the papers arid Mr Rock efeller said it was possible several of those mentioned might have : been stockholders of the Standard if they had the money to purchase the stock 1 "How many railroad men did you take into the Standard after 1870?" "I could not say."" "Was W. H. Vanderbilt a stock holder?" ' I "I can't say definitely. He might have been a stockholder for a trifling amount." Fog Cause of Death. ' Pittsburg, Pa, Nov 23.

New Mllford, Nov 23. Forty cows and seven horses perished In a fire which this morning destroyed a large barn on the farm of J. S. Ilal plne located in the town of Bridge water. Farming tools, a large quan tity of hay, and other property in cluding about three ton of tobac co, bundled and ready for shipping were also consumed, together with other small buildings adjoining the barn. The place is leased by a Swede, named Nelson Johnson. It is. believed that the flre was of In cendiary origin. The loss Is esti mated at about 110,000 with some insurance. When the flre was discovered by a neighbor the structure was ablaze from end to end, and seeing that there was no chance-to save it, the men who assembled to fight the fire turned their attention to preventing Its spread to the house nearby.. In this they were successful. It Is said that a door which had been nailed up for the winter recently at one end of the barn was found to have been opened. Two men who had been fishing during the . night were found who stated that they had passed the barn about an. hour after midnight, and at that time so far as they knew the door had not then been opened. One cow had managed to get away from her stall and es caped through the opened door. BRAKEMAN WAS KILLED. When Two Trains Met in a Head On 1 Collision. Suffolk, Va, Nov. ?3.

PAYING FOR A MEAL It Was Worth About a Shilling to Pick . ; . ? These Bones. , '. r" ' "Colonel 'Ebenezer Sproat. of Revolu tionary .fame iwts born and; bred-ls, Middleboro, Mass. He was' always fond of a joke and was quick to seize an opportunity to, indulge his propen sity,' as the following Incident illus trates. His father, also a Colonel Sproat, kept a tavern. . One day while Ebenezer was at borne on a furlough three private soldiers, on their return from the seat of war, called for a cold luncheon. Mrs." Sproat set on the table some bread and cheese with the remnants of the family dinner, which her son thought rather scanty fare for hungry men. He felt a little vexed that the defenders - of the country were not more bountifully supplied. The sol diers, after satisfying their appetites, asked him how much they should pay. Ebenezer said he would ask his moth er. He found her in the kitchen. "' "Mother," he said, "how much is it worth to pick those bones?" "About a shilling, I guess," she an swered. The young officer returned to the sol diers and, taking from the barroom till 8 shillings and smiling genially upon them, gave each. man one and .with good wishes sent them on their way; Mrs. . Sproat soon after came In and asked Ebenezer what he had done with the money for the soldiers' dinner. In apparent amazement be exclaim ed: "Money! Did I not ask you what It was worth' to pick those bones, and you said a shilling? I thought it little enough, for the bones were; pretty bare, and I handed the men the money from the till, and they are gone." Mrs. Sproat could not find heart to reprove her favorite son for this mis Interpretation of her words, and then she, too, loved a joke, and so, after, an instant's glum look, she laughed and said It was all right .'...

The police au thoritlea have made two other arrests In the case of J, Montefloie Meyers, said to be from; Australia, who wos taken into custody ut the Hotel Scbenley last Saturday and held for the New York police on an alleged charge of grand larceny. Shortly after Meyers left this city yesterday In charge of Detective Sergeant Nel son for the esBt the local police ar rested W. A.

Judge Cowell of the district court locked horns with the telephone com pany this morning and knocked the big corporation out In the first round. Last week the city laid a very hand some walk from Cone's t'orner south erly to a point below the Hod son property and the thing pleased every, body so that people gathered In groups and talked about it and hoped such work would be continued un til every street In the city la equipped In a similar manner. Before t bey got through praising the job the tele phone company came along and bat tered a bole' In the pavement wide and deep enough to bury an elephant. They put a huge pole into the exca vation ' and then went off without even trimming up about the big stick. This was followed by a cuss word all around, almost every man about the place wanting to know If there Is any law which the telephone people are obliged to respect. The next move on the part of the com pany was to start digging another hole in the walk opopsite M. J. Mc Evoy's cafe for another monarch of (be forest. There is a pole there now but it stands outside the curb in the granite pavement. The plan was to do away with the one in the street after one had been set up in the walk. The sidewalk Is narrow at that point and the pole if erected would make the situation worse than ever before. Somebody got busy and when the men were about half through the portly figure of the judge of the dis trict court was seen hurrying down Harrison avenue. It was evident that the eminent jurist had been put wise to what was going on and was bound to stop the erection of the pole. He has charge of some property there, Including the building where Mr Mc. Evoy does business, and the moment he wheeled into Exchange place he Inquired of the men what they were doing there. Of course they replied, as usual, that they were going to put a pole there. "Get out of there!" ex claimed the judge with all the em phasis he could put Into speech, add ing that if ; they didn't stir around lively and fill up the hole he would have them all arrested. The men stopped for a moment and looked at his honor and seeing that he meant It , they turned to and worked like beavers until they bad filled the hole good, and 'ttlcitiT and then they tamped It until one could hardly tell that a spade ever was put In It. Judge Cowell was asked what he Intended to do about it in case they tried it aagin.' He said he didn't look for any trouble over it. They have no right to put a hole there, he said, and I have told them so and 1 don't suppose they will try it again. The workmen didn't know what to make of It, but they were prudent enough not to make a scene. It was said that they had a permit from the board of public works to put a pole there,, but this Is not so. The com pany used to consult the board of public works about poles, but they have. not done so In many years. They go right ahead and put in Poles wherever they please and don't seem to. care whether the board of public works or anybody else like their gait. It is evident that the company does not intend to fight, for men have already dug a hole In the street be side the old pole and the new one Is on the ground ready to be dropped into It. The streets of Waterbury being common property to everybody who wants to make money out of them, except the city Itself, who can. not make a conduit In them, nobody will be likely to stop the company from putting it down at the old stand. r- Cauning Much Anxiety. Philadelphia, Nov 23. The dis covery in this city of the presence of the foot and mouth disease among catle which Is prevalent in more than ten counties in Pennsylvania is caus ing much anxiety.

The German and Italian students ', attending, the university of Vienna came into col lision in the university precincts to day and before the police drove the demonstrants away revolvers had been freely used and a number of young men wounded. .' i , ..' i , The trouble was caused by an Ital ian demonstration in favor of the. es tablishment of an Italian university at Trlest. The German speaking students promptly organized a coun ter demonstration. The opposing factions totalled 1200 men and the prelude to the fight was the singing of patriotic airs, the "Italians using the Garibaldi hymn and the Germans the "Watch on the Rhine." The fighting started with fists, sticks and stones, but revolvers soon appeared and a number of shots were fired. The Italians were driven from the building and gathered in the street outside.
