[ This is true whether of the national or of THE LOCAL CAMPAIGN. Party management and party papers have had weeks and months in which to present their cases to the public.

Mr. Bryan also slands an excellent chance of carrying the electors o f Illinois, Ohio, North Dakota and Oregon. H!B election is therefore a foregone conclusion, and he will go In on a Bryan landslide, similar to the Roosevelt landslide of Colorado 5 1904, which was not partisan by any means.

Ca:i:oniia cave •ctor-i and one to mi i :r,-rj '.ng- the BAKEKSFIELD EMPLOYMENT BUREAU evening the Fresno Tribune stated: "The Standard Oil Company IB t« have a competitor in the retail trade In this city in the Union Oil Company, which has secured property on the Espee reservation and will soon be In a position to supply the trade." Today Information was received which apparently shows that the Union Company Is simply a branch of the Standard Oil, and that there will be no real competition In Fresno. It has been claimed before that tho Union was no real competitor to the Standard and that It was organized to delude CalKornlans. Now come) the New York World, in a sensational expose of how Roosevelt granted a monopoly to the Union Company In Panama, and states without hesitation or speculation that the Union Is a subsidiary company owned by the main Rockefeller combination. Here Is the story. While William Nelson Cromwell, attorney for E. H. Harrlman, was chief adviser to President Roosevelt and Secretary of War William H. Tal't in all matters relating to the Panama Canal, President Roosevelt, against the wishes of Theodore P. Shouts, then chairman of the Canal I Commission, signed on June 10, 19i»t;, i a concession, amounting to a mono- i poly, by which the Union Oil Com; pany built a pipe line across the Can- 1 al /.one on the isthmus from one ocean to the other. The Union Oil Company is a California corporation owned by the Standard Oil. In signing this concession to the Standard Oil Company's subsidiary ('resident Roosevelt took the matter out of the hands of the Panama Canal Commission, Likely to Be Perpetual. The monopoly gained by the Standard Oil Company is, hi the opinion of those who opposed the concession, likely to be. perpetual. In the fust place tlie pipe! Hue, runs from the city of Panama tin the Pacific side to Colon on thy Atlantic side. These two cities are in tin; control ot the Republic ot 1'anauia and the agents of tho tSandard Oil Company obtained exclusive ri.guls from the republic to inn a pipe line in those cities. Kven if there were spucu for another pipe liiiu across the Canal zone -—and engineers declare there is not— there would be iiu reason for another I company buildiiiK one to cumpctu : v, itii tiie Standard Oil, because of the .'wiusive rights to enter the two i'it- . h it obtained from tliu republic after a gut the concession 'to cross tho ; intlnmis from President Roosevelt. | There have been rumors that at i least one member of tho Standard Oil group of capitalists was in the, Ameri- i can syndicate which is reported to road business proposition pure and simple, the granting of a pipe Una concession might In effect take away- business from the Panama railroad and In future from the Panama Canal." fop •:• THE ALBANY NURSERIES * It you need anything m the * * nursery line reo them at their •!• •{• ranch opposite Producers' Refln- * * ery.on Beardstey Canal.
