James O'Connor, recalled—When tho
contracts were mado in June the prices de
pended upon the date each particular eon
tract was executed. The first r I knbw of
_the .rise,of oil was on . the morning of tho
• sth of July, when it was about thirty cents.
Outhelst of July_ "spot" oil was worth
about twenty-two ontwenty-threer cents in
OnJuly 6th "spot" and July
was quoted twenty-nine to thy. On July
15th "spot" was quoted at thirty-ono to
thirty-one and a half.. When I made my
contracts, oil in' Antwerp was worth 42
francs per kilometre, and on Septeniber 4th
it was worth - 5134 francs. During: this in
'nation of the'prime" of oil, it reached its
higbestthirty or thirty-seven' cents isir
gallon. In the ' • latter part of September,
1867, it advanced from twenty-two cents to
thirty-eeven. It subsequently hill to twen
ty-two • cents. The river was not high
enough during that time to float oil. There
was no supply of Oil; on account of this
condition of the river. Up to - the time of
this decline, I believe the Allegheny Val
ley Railroad was not in working condition.
During the conversation; with - Augustus
Tack he said, that oil, was worth from , forty
to forty-two francs. in ,Europo, and he
could double c .it, and he would, also
double , than, here from- thirty in sixty
cents per on. He_ said this bull&rive

for me to recollect all I say; Mr. Theodore
Tack Slaivred Me letters and' telams
to the thne'of his leaving for Philadelphia
daily, almest'hourly; I made but very little
inquiry as to the markets outside of them;
I stated tdMr. Tack prior to this time that'
I had—been to the oil regiorui, and
kept myself posted as regarded the condi;
lion of crude oil; this would naturally lead
me to knOwxemething about the condition
of • retitled di, but oil Is a prettylig thing,
and there is a lest deal to know about' it; 1
may, have said was going to make a spson
or area a horn; that is , a deestern phrase,
and a very common one; I went into the
business to make money, and Mr. Tack
was to deliver oil or make proper settle
ment less his commission; I 'stated posi
tively 'that I was to have nothing to do,
with the`details of Oil; 'have not paid the_ ,
$3,000 commission on the oil to the Messrs.
Tack; was ' not'aware that snit had been
brought for that sum; the witness testified to
the payments made by him on account of
the contraots, and identified the printed
copy, of an affidavit made by Mr. Augustus
Marion relative to the .payment, of 'he con
tracts, and said he believed the copy to be
precisely the same as the injunction affida
vit he Made, subject to typographical errors;
either my counsel or myself procured alb.
davits from all with whom I settled; or my
agent forme: it was not a part of the un
derstanding in settlement that the affidavits
were-to be made; Mr. Collis prepared an
affidavit for Mr. Wight:rum; he did not de
cline to swear to the affidavit, and said he
would not do , - so for all the World.,
Mr. Mann, front the time he took charge
of my equity case up to now, - has always
said the contracts were illegal, - and it was
'against his;orderii that I overpaid a dollar;
1 - know John K. Barber; never said .to him
that I recollect of 'that it would pay him
better to be on my side than the Tacks'; I
know F. Albert Dilworth; ho"told me that'
Mr. Tack had been , diem:sing the subject
with him, and said he was going to put rao
in th Penitentiary, and that I • had not as
muchmoney as reported; I said I was worth
enough money r und had enough`justice to
put the Tacks to the wall; don't recollect
saying to . Solomon. Shanathat I would ruin
the Tacks, no matterhow this case turned
out.. .• I hive both sworn • and said that the
object of bringing this suit was to get jus
tice, and my money back; I employed coun
gel in this ease, both here and in Pittsburgh;
I was President of a hank at the time I was

my own knowiedge.that Mr. Tack was dis
charged from the.. second arrest; I saw in
the newspapers that he had sailed for• Eu
