LITTLE 1TI Telling of in Our Own State. MONOPOLY ATTACK' Begins Milt FmTeat Oil Company Do. Btulfiew In Oklo. COLTMBCS, O., May Gen- eral Watson, on behalf of the State, be- gmn in the Supreme Court yesterday a law suit which will probably attract more attention than any other ever filed in Ohio. It is against the Standard Oil Company, and its object is to prevent that company from doing business in Ohio. The petition sets forth that the company was incorporated under Ohio laws February 10, 1879, with a capital of to manufacture petroleum and deal in it and its products, with principal offices at Cleveland; that on two subsequent occasions its capital stock was increased, until in 1SS3 it was Up to that time it had pur- sued the legitimate objects of its incor- poration, but it was then merged with other concerns into a trust, the object of which waa to control the production and the price of petroleum in the United States. The parties to the trust, as set forth in the petition, are divided into three classes: First, corporations; second, in- dividuals; third, portions of corporations and partnerships. The parties to the agreement elected nine trustees, to whom they conveyed all their interests and property, real and personal. The trustees assumed control and manage- ment of the entire interests of the trust It is claimed, on the part of the State, that, by entering into this trust agree- ment, the Standard Oil Company sur- rendered its property to the nine trus- and was a party to the formation of a trust which is injurious to trade and commerce. The petition is a very long one, but stripped of its legal verbiage is as fol- lows: That by entering into the trust agreement with other corporations the Standard Oil Company vested all its property in the board of trustees of the trust, and thus annulled the corporate rights conferred upon it by the State of Ohio. Attorney General Watson says he was not instigated to bring the suit by any other oil dealers. THEY ELOPED.
