WaKhlngton Notes.
On Thursday last President Roosevelt
sent an order to James B. Garfield,
fhief of the bureau of corporations, to
make a thorough Investigation of the
Standard Oil Company's business and
ascertain if that corporation is violating
any of the anti trust laws. The in
vestigation is to he made at once.
This action is independent of the res
olution adopted by the House of Repre
sentatives, providing for snch an in
vestigation. 1$ had been contemplated
by the president for several days. Rep
resentative Campbell of Kansas who se
cured the passage of the resolution by
the House, in a conference with Presi
dent Roosevelt outlined the crisis that
haa come to the Kansas oil industry.
Agents of the bureau of corporations
are being hurried into the field to probe
everywhere for evidence that will show
violation of the Federal laws. When
Commissioner Garfield called at the
White House later in the day to confer
with the President he was given specific
Instructions to begin with Kansas The
dwrges of Representative Campbell in
volve the railroads of Kansas, which,
he says, acted in collusion with the
Standard (Ml Company in driving out
of Imslunss its competitors in Kansas,
tfc* Humboldt Refinery and the Morse
Crude Oil Company. The Humboldt
Setneiy had a market for fuel oil at
W from the Stand
aid OH trust, the railroad rate from
Humboldt to Kansas City was suddenly
raised seven cents per 100 pounds,
| ohlch drove the Humboldt Refinery to
the wait
Another specific instance of this char-
I' actor is related in the case of the Moran
Crude Oil Company, which was com
pelled by the railroads to pay an ad- 1
voce of 84 cents per barrel in freight
rates, and on this account was unable
to continue business.
Mr. Campbell pretented a statement
signed by R W. Rawlins and William
M. Connelly, members of the advisory
committee of the Kansas Oil Producers'
association, and said that in substance
it contained the information furnished
by him to the commissioner of corpora
tions, as follows:
"We charge that the Standard Oil
Company has endeavored to secure a
monopoly of the oil business of this
•tete from the beginning of its develop
ment; that it has prevented other com
panies from entering the field to com
pete for the oil trade. Also I
that there exists a conspiracy between
the Standard Oil Company and the
Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fe railroad
to prevent other parties from handling
oil or purchasing oil in Kansas. In
support of theee charges are submitted
facts and figures from the books of I.
M. Knapp, in hi* office at Channte.
Kan., which show that S4B per car for
oil was charged from Channte to
Kansas City, while the rate on a car of
•took, cattle or hogs was $25.50 and on
a car of strawberries was but SBO. In
June 1904, notice was given that on
August 15,1004, the rate on crude oil
would be raised to 17 cents per 100
pounds in carload lots from Channte to
Kansas City—an increase of 70 percent.
And the Stimdard's pipe line to Kansas
Oity was completed about August 15,
Concluding the memoralists charge
that the Standard Oil's "crimes" are
against Kansas and all the other states,
against individuals, commerce and trade
— the government itself— against hu
manity, that the combination be dis
solved and its officials punished as
enemies and malefactors.
Again the Senate has intruded into
the forum of constitutional construc
tion bv trying to decide a drawback
point while considering an appropria
tion bill. Here's where the bouse can
aesert its prerogative and a grand mix
up be provided for the three branches
of government.
President Roosevelt's lengthy mes
sage to the Senate on the Santo Domin
go negotiations is likely to pull up that
censorious body as sharply as President
Polk did the senate of his day, when he
asked advice on the Oregon boundary
question. Although it had been get
ting ready to condemn President Polk
for making the settlement be had in
mind yet when confronted by the issue
It shrank from advising rejection of the
p!an and the policy of the administra
tion prevailed without further cavil, i
President Roosevelt impressively ex- 1
hibits the dilemma in which our govern-.
ment finds itself. He shows that our
government has done all it can to avoid I
entanglement in Santo Domingo affairs
and has finally concluded to take action 1
"only because It became evident that 1
failure to do so may resnlt in a situation
fraught with grave danger to the cause
of international peace. "
"The present course of land-fraud in
dictments m Oregon resem bits that of
admitting a slave and free State to the
Union to preserve the balance of tbe
Senate. One day a Senator is indicted;
tte next a Representative. "—Ex.

The Hardnesi of Genuine Stone,
Its Resistance to Hydrofluoric Aeld
and Other of Its Peculiar Proper
ties—Colored Diamonds.
If you doubt the genuineness of your
diamonds or stones which you contem
plate purchasing it is not necessary to
submit them to an expert. By study
ing the following methods of testing
these gems, says the Columbus Press
Post, you may become your own ex
For the first lesson take a real dia
mond and an imitation. Drop them in
glasses of water. The imitation wiil
blend with the water and become al
most invisible, while the real one will
be distinctly visible, shining out white
ly through the liquid. Dry and clean
the two stones, and on the flat side of
each put a tiny drop of water. On the
real the drop will hold its globular
form and can be led about with a pin
point. The drop on the glass one will
Study the two stones with a magnify
ing glass. The facets of the false one
are even and regular. On the other
they are of varying sizes. The reason
for this is that a diamond cutter with
a good gem will sacrifice symmetry to
weight, preferring to leave some Blight
irregularities in the planes and edges
than to reduce the stone's value. The
material in a false stone l>eing of little
value, the cutter makes as finished a
Job as he can of it, the appearance
counting for more than the stone it
If a real diamond be used as a minia
ture reading glass, aided by a large
magnifying glass, a tiny dot on paper
appears clear and clean. Substitute
the false stone, and several points or
one badly broken one will be seen ow
ing to unequal refraction.
Then you can try the familiar experi
ment of scratching a sheet of glass.
Because your stone wiil scratch does
not prove Its genuineness, however.
Try to break the glass evenly on the
scratch. No other stone can cut through
the outer skin of a sheet of glass and
give certainty to an even fracture like
a diamond.
Your true diamond is proof against
the hardest file, but the instrument will
easily scratch any imitation that has
ever been made.
Having scratched your pretty bit of
glass till it is worthless, drop it and
the diamond into hydrofluoric acid. Be
fore long the glass will be dissolved,
but the diamond will not suffer at all.
Then there is still another experi
ment. Take a bit of stuff with red and
white markings, pass the stone to be
tested over it and closely observe the
result. If the stone be an imitation
the colors will be distinguishable
through It; if It be a diamond no dif
ference of color will be appreciable.
A genuine diamond rubbed upon
wood or metal, after having been pre
viously subjected to the rays of the
electric arc, becomes phosphorescent
in the dnrk. This cannot be .".aid of
any of the imitations. If the stone
to be tried be covered with borax paste
anil after being well heated In the al
cohol flame dropped into a glass of
water the proof will be Instantaneous.
The glass imitation will fly into bits,
while the genuine stone will not be :if
feeted. Finally, try to crush between
two hard plates a diamond and an im
itation and learn the difference.
After the diamond the sapphire is the
hardest stone. With her more beauti
ful sistPr she possesses also the quality
of resisting the attacks of the file, but
she is, however, cloudy in appearance
and of n milky hue. The topaz is
slightly yellowish and surrenders to the
cutting teeth of the file. There are a
greut ntunl>er of white diamonds, but
t pure, clear, transparent stone without
a shade of color Is more rare thau Is
often supposed.
Besides white diamonds there are
some which exhibit the shades of red,
blue, green, yellow, brown, black and
pink. Ileat sometimes causes a dia
mond to change its color, and after a
time the color thus acquired becomes
permanent. Yellow diamonds, or those
commonly denominated "off color,"
furnish the greatirst variety of shades
and some of them exceed In beatify all
other stones of that color.
Specimens of canary colored <lin
monda are by no means rare. They
may almost be said to be common. A
pink or rose colored diamond in of
great value, and the red diamond, sur
passing tbc ruby in its magnificent col
oring, is considered tlio most beautifn!
of all the precious stones, being ex
ceedlngiy rare. The one bought by
Paul, czar of Kussla, weighed ten
carats and cost him two and one half
million francs. A perfectly black dia
mond ll almost as rare as a red one.
For beauty the blue stones come di
rectly after the ml diamonds. Tbose
possessing the deep blue, and In this
respect resembling the sapphire, are In
deed most beautiful gems, differing
from the sapphire only In quality and
by the magnificent fiery colors peculiar
to the diamond. The only true blue
diamonds come from the mines In In
dia. The varieties of green are not so
rare as the blues, reds, blacks and
pinks, but those of grass green hue like
the beautiful emerald are seldom found.
Where they do exist, however, they sur
pass In brilliancy the finest emerald.
In place of the Brazilian diamond,
which of late years lias become quite
scarce, Cape diamonds of much In
ferior value and brilliancy are often
3old. To be able to distinguish between
these gems Is an accomplishment pos
sessed by the few.
