The Abyssinian treatment administered to Standard Oil

Title:

The Abyssinian treatment administered to Standard Oil

Collection:

Library of Congress Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound

Description:

Theodore Roosevelt addresses John D. Archbold's accusations that Roosevelt, when president, gave Standard Oil Company the "Abyssinian Treatment." Roosevelt said he did indeed do so to the Standard Oil Company and he would do so again to any big trust that requires it. Roosevelt notes that Archbold is not afraid of being ignored or regulated by the current administration or by the Democrats, but he fears that Roosevelt and the Progressive Party, the party of the people, will act, which is why he has attacked Roosevelt during his testimony in Congress.
