charm of the fishing, even without success.

A Running Comment on the Legisla
I’allahassk, Fla., June 6. —After all
the delays and disappointments incident to
the action of the Legislative session just
closed a good showing has been made in the
number of bills passed, nearly all of which
were acted on during the last few days of
the session. About 200 bills were passed,
nnd among them numbers some of the most
important that have ever been enacted in
The railroad commission bill is of prime
imfiortanco and its success or failure is of
serious consequence to the entire State. It
is different from the Georgia law chiefly in
its provisions for an appeal from the deci

bers of the Governor’s Cabinet, who are
constituted a board of rex'isors with full
power to supervise and regulate the actions
of the Commissioners through the agency of
the appeal process.

Gov. Perry has sixty days in which to se
lect his men for positions of this highly re
sponsible commission, and it is to be hope l
he will be fortunate in his selections, as the
success of the measure depends entirely
on the men who compose the commission.
Numerous names have been mentioned in
connection with the position but nothing

the apportionment equitable.
The new apportionment of the State is
entirely different from that heretofore ex
isting, but it is as near equitable as it could
be made. No county has more than two
members of the House of Representatives,
while txx r enty-one of the smaller counties
have only one member. The Senatorial dis
tricts remain x’ery much as before, with the
exception of one increase in South Florida at
ihe expense of West Florida.
THE BALLOT BOX PP.OTECTED.
The election laws have some new features
that may tend to preserve the purity of the
ballot Isix, und chief among the new pro
visions is the appointment of a supervisor of
registration in each county, by the Gov
ernor, xvho shall have charge of the matter
of registering all legal voters, and who re
eeives a salary from the State in proportion
to the amount of the services required in
the different counties of varying population.
The failure of the Board of Health bill is
to be regretted, particularly now that it
would hax'e been so useful in preventing the
spread of yellow fever.
A large number of other bills hax-e been
passed, but have not been approved by the
Governor. He still. has several days in
which to consider them, and the chances are
that very few will be vetoed. Only one veto
has been imposed so far, and that was of

AN OIL KING.
Facts About Rockefeller, the Standard
Oil Company’s President.
From the .Vein York Morning Journal.
Thirty-five million dollars.
Promptly at 10 o’clock each morning the
man xvho is worth that much, and probably
sex-eral millions more, gets out of an ele
x ated railroad train at Rector street and
walks to his office at No. 20 Broadway.
He is of medium height and stout build.
He is slightly stoopH. His brown hair is
fast turning to a dull gray. His eyes are
brown and are overhung by heavy brows.
He wears a short, dark beard and an
uncared-for moustache. A stern, but yet a
kindly face, seamed with small xvrinkles, as
if by concentrated thought.
This is John D. Rockefeller, the famous oil
king and the President of the Standard Oil
Company, one of the xvealthiest and most
powerful corporations on earth.
Mr. Rockefeller’s clothes might hax-o been
purchased at a second-hand store. They
seem to have been throxx-n on carelessly, and
the battered silk hat lias needed brushing
for a long time. Scores of clerks in his em
ploy are dressed a dozen times more expen
sively than the oil king.
Mr. Rockefeller might be taken for the
oxx-ner of a small grocery store, and that is
what he was not so many years ago. Noxv
he has a palatial home in this city tilled to
the doors with splendid paintings and rare
works of art and a summer residence ut
Greenwich, Conn., which ranks among the
finest along the Sound.
John D. Rockefeller is about 50 years of
age. He was a Now England boy, and does
not hide the fact that, in company with his
brother William, he began life by selling
nexvspapers in the streets of New Bedford,
Mass. He possessed a partial education ac
quired at the common schools, and was
bright and shrewd.
When yet a young man Mr. Rockefeller,
like so many other Nexv England boys, left
home for the West. He did not get very far
West, however, as he settled at Cleveland,
0., and became a clerk in a grocery. In a
few years young Rockefeller oxvnod the gro
cery. He continued the business until about
1870, when his first big boost into tlie ranks
of the millionaires texik place.
At that time Samuel J. Andrews, xvho
had lieen a day laborer in Cleveland, after
years of patient experimenting and invest
igation, invented several new processes for
refining crude oil. He went to John D.
Rockefeller and showed him xvhat he had.
The shrewd groceryman at once saw the
fortune within his grasp, and he became a
partner in the firm of Andrews & Rockefel
ler. That firm xvas the original Standard
Oil Company, and every man connected
xx ith it at the start has become many times
The pushing business qualities of Rocke
feller soon made themselves felt. It xxas
obvious to him that control of the oil fields
meant a virtual ownership of the oil wells.
One by one the small refineries in Ohio—in
Pennsylvania and everywhere else, in fact,
were absorbed bv Andrew & Rockefeller.
They were bouglit out, squeezed out ami
frozen out, and then the larger concerns in
the big cities were attacked, the scheme be
ingto obtain control of the petroleum trade
of uie xvorld.
In three years Roehefefier xxas worth
$5,000,(XX), and he then let his brother Wil
liam into the business and formed the Stand
ard Oil Company. Associated with them
was Peter A. Watson, then President of the
Erie Railway, and his assistance proved in
valuable in aiding tho Standard to crush out
its weaker rivals. Many of the Standard’s
competitors xvere bought out and retired
with big fortunes; those xvho xvere foolish
enough to fight the big monopoly were re
morselessly sent to the wall.
Mr. Rockefeller’s fortune kept growing
larger and larger, uutil, like most wealthy
Americans, he concluded to remove from
Cleveland to New York. A year or two
ago the Standard Oil Company erected the
mammoth building Nos. 18 and 2fi Broad
way, and on the seventh floor cf that great
structure the oil king has his plainly-fur

is sharp ana quibk in his answers, and has
no time for reminiscences. His last and
greatest scheme is said to be a plan to ob

Mr. Rockefeller has a wife and several
children, and on his remox*al to this city he
purchased a magnificent house at No. 4
West Fifty-fourth street. It is said that he
paid SOOO,OBO for the property, which he
purchased from Mrs. Worsham, the xx-ealthy
xvidoxv xxho lias since married millionaire
Coliis P. Huntington. The house is ex
pensively and elegantly furnished, and is a
miracle in the way of frescoing, paneling
and in decorations of all kinds. Its in
terior is more like the house of some Ori
ental monarch than of a plain American
Mr. Rockefeller's hobby is paintings, and
he has lavished hundreds of thousands of
dollars upon foreign and native artists. On
his return from a recent trip to Europe he
brought back over $50,000 worth of paint
ings with him. His art gallery is one of the
finest in America, but only his personal
friends hax-e an opportunity of gazing at
the rare art treasures.
Mr. Rockefeller is a dex-oted Christian and
a member of the Baptist faith. Ho taught
a large Sunday school class in Cleveland for
yeara. and has given a great deal of money
to various religious institutions. Among
his donations xx-as $25,000 to the University
of Rochester, in this State.
Mr. Rockefeller enjoys a drive behind a
fast team, and he has sex-era! trotters xvith
low records in bis stables. He frequently
drix-isi out on t.he road, and likes to handle
the ribbons xvithout tlie aid of a coachman.
It is said that Mr. Rockefeller knows
ex ery verse in the Bible by heart, and he
delights in theological discussion with his
intimate friends. His home life is quiet and
sedate, and he is seldom seen at the opera or
in fashionable circles.
At hi* elegant summer residence in Green
