recent cold brings to mind a little scene which would furnish the text for a fine sermon on life and its ways Most of us get sermons enough from the preachers or from our dont get scared that this will be one but almost anyone will be interested in the scene There were two men brothers and about the same build but ono had a little more sand than the other They were living together when along came a spell of weather much like this Bill didnt like the cold lIe hovered over the fire like a cat and spent day after day sitting as close to the coals as he could without burning his breeches His appetite didnt thrive under the circumstances and ho got pretty grouchy It is awfully tiresome being shut up in the house for several days with nothing to do Tom turned the steam into his spunk when the cold snap hit and went to work just the same He dressed up warmly pulled his cap over his earH took his axand went to work When he first went out ho would stop once in while to swing his arms to warm up but after a little while ho quit that Then his coat came off finaly his vest and his ax sounded right peart as it swung and rung in the frosty air And the scone I referred to was at the supper table Tom was redfaced and hearty eating like a horse warm to tho tips of his tOUR And my how he did relish his victuals Bill poor fellow wns still cold tho he had made love to the fire all day and his victuals were hardly worth eating Heres just the text of the sermon When a man faces his dif ficulties he cornea out ahead and is all the better for them THE FIGHT IN WASHINGTON It is a long ways to Washington and many of us seem to have the idea that we are not much affected by what goes on there but as- a matter of fact each of us will gain or lose a good deal according to the result of the fight now being made in the national capital It is more than a matter of dollars or centsthe life of the Republican party certainly more than likely the immedinto future prosperity of the common people of our country and possibly the very life of our nation na a republic all these hang in the balance as the champions of organized greed and of unorganized need are dividing for the greatest fray in a generation We Hay tho champions are dividing but they are not yet divided Some have definitely chosen their places Cannon and Aldrich And the men who are closest to them aud others who are against them to the endthe peoples champions But many are still on the fence They have been taught to think only in terms of partyamid now that tho moral issues are taking the place of party principles they are Idat They will gradually bo forced some to one side qnd some to the other But particularly is it true that Pres Taft has not yet found his place In his heart he is with the people And yet be is not always with them in action His great desire ia the enacting of the laws which he believes will do the most for them and instead of fighting for them ho bits chosen the method of attempting to win them by favors to the men who have present power n Congress The at tempt may succeed but in the meanwhile he is going to please then with many things which are against tim interests of the people Ho looks to the larger good May he win As to Pinchot There seems to have deen nothing for the Pres ident to do in the circumstances but to drop him The American people however have long since learned to tell the difference be- tween a man who manages to cloak his stealings under form of law and an upright public servant like Mr Pinchot The people feel that any circumstances which forced Mr Pinchot into an action re quiring his dismissal were wrong from the sturt and will attach no blame to tho Chief Forester fQr what has happened The men who have put 1 Illlll ill this position however may well look out for the memory of an outraged people is likely tQ be both long and effective IN fRANKFORT Legislature Not Really Down To Work Yet Unit Bill Likely To Be Killed by Devious Methods Good Roads Bills Provide for Five Tax t CentI Frankfort Ky Jan 11 ing In session for a week It Is still only fair to say that tho legislature has done nothing A number ofl bills I havo been Introduced but they have l not had anything done to them The cotnhilttee appointments have been made but they were about as expected j and took no work on the part- of anybody But there has doelolI- ell a split among tho Democrats trouIhlolikely to cause more some tluifc soon Tho trouble started over tho attempt ot the Senate machine to cause the adoption ot gag rule which would give the entire control of all legis lative matters Into tho hands of Sen ators Combs and Linn It seems that the Democratic machine not onlIdoes not Intend to give tho cans even tho useless minority rep resentation on Important committees j which is customary as a matter of courtesy but It docs not trust its own representatives and so Invented a scheme which would give the en tire power Into the hands of these two men It Is quite a compliment to tho two men but when a vote on It was taken enough Democrats Insureed so that the rule was defeated This docs not mean at all that tho Republicans will have any power or consideration such as is I given tho Democrats In Congress where they ore In tho minority but It does perhaps mean that the Demo craUc forces will not bo united on all propositions and that so there is some chance of good legislation It Is not certain Just yet how the fight will conic out but It Is pretty ocr tain that the Senate at least will have to give up less of Its power than us ualJus bolmentioned c r s not given the minority any representation on the Rules Committee of the House This does not mako any real difference for Uio minority nev or Is allowed to do anything but vote no In such a committee anyway but It Is customary In all legislative ladles everywhere to give the minor sty a hearing Even Cannon always gives the Democrats two of the five members bf the Rules Committee in CongressSeveral ot tho most important bills have been Introduced and It is already possible to get some sort of an idea as to what will be done with them The Good Roads bill as Introduced provides that a five cent tax shall be levied for the purpose timid that a Commissioner of Roads shall bo appointed by the Legislature with a salary of 2400 and a super intendent of roads selected by him In every county It Is pretty likely that this bill will be passed The County Unit bill has been In traduced practically In tho same form OutwurdlyIII of Its getting thru The Democrats aro loading tho committees so that the bill can bo quloUy smothered in them or reported to the houses so lato that it caftnot bo passed It is possible that different bills will be passed by tho two houses thus allowing every one who warts to voto for tho men sure without hurting tho whiskey men who have given so generously to the campaign funds There seems to be no hope of a redistricting bill at this session It Is plainly tho Intention ot the Demo craUc leaders to let the matter go over till next session A Federal census will have been taken in the moan while and a redlstrlptlng will be very necessary then After all It is ask- Ing a good deal ot tho men such as are in control of this legislature to give up the advantage they have whereby the state can bo strongly Republican and yet the Legislature under DemocraUc control Of course the present situation Is Illegal and un fair but it is fine Dor Democratic plo hunters I iU ttkd iC r 1 7 II P Knowledge powerand 1909 The New Year 1910 S

something doing In the way of news hero pretty soon Today they are gasping for breath and wondering it they will ever see home and mother again No one hero can remember time when so much political excite mont has1 been crowded Into so short a time It has been a whirlwind a tornado a flood a blizzardonly a hot onet has been anything and everything which can be thought of In the way ot excitement and trou ble No ono sees the end of tho fray no ono has any very clear Idea as to who will win no one is even sure who ought to win ot all the varlous- confllcUngelemcntB A week ago we thought that by this time Pros Taft would have made good his place as the leader of his people by his demands on Congress for the reforms which are so sorely needed He made the demands all right but at almost the same time he has taken other actions which again leave his friends unable to ap prove his policies Ho Is where ho was before with tho real friends ot the people and ot reform stlll unable to endorse his course at all en thusiastically and really they have to ask the people to wait in tho hope that ho will still come out allright In fact there Is every reason to wait In spite of the storm ItIs far from being settled that Taft will side with either faction and it Is far from bolus certain that ho will not secure Uio host good of the whole people Only ho has not proved It yet It might Injure every ono It a fight against him should start and so every one Is still asking from the American pqoplo a suspension of judgmentMeanwhile so far aa can be seen tho Republican party is rapidly breaking

tGL COM CHAPTER I An Adventure In Photography Frederick Courtland Hardy ex member of Mrs Johnny Folkstonos smart set of Boston excotllllon lead er yachtsman and clubman was on his way to Russia to take charge of one of the American Trading Companys stores at Stryetensk He had lost his money and his fairweather friends and had been Jilted by a girl who as It proved was not the Ideal of nobility and womanly grace he had supposed her to be Though plucky he was to use an expression more forceful than elegant sore Had toe but known It the escape from the girl was a bit of good luck sufficient L to compensate him for the loss of his wealth for no woman who deserts a man at the first blast of misfortune Is good to tie to for a lifetime lie did not realize this for It Is hard to bo justII money lIe received his appointment to Si beria through a friend of his fathers old Frederick Emery who had gone out to that country somo years before and came back to Boston on a visit rich and eloquent of the resources and possibilities of that great empire so i little known and understood by Amer icansThe series of adventures that caused the excotllllon leader to forget his troubles began at Yokohama and dated with his first meeting with Stapleton Neville in the dining room of the Grand hotel The two men were seated together at a small table and the American was gazing dreamily over the room most probably thinking of the girl who dropped him when ho lost his money Its a Jolly gay scene Isnt ItT remarked his visavis smiling pleasant ly He was a florid blonde man with the peachy complexion of a Swede rather thick lips and nostrils a square chin the bluest of blue eyes and white even teeth like those of a young dog His expansive shlrtbosom for he was in evening dress dis played to the best advantage his depth of chestThese people seem to be all Amer Leans remarked Hardy They looked like Americans and the accent of those passing by or sitting near enough to be heard was unmistak ableYesj replied the other I suppose they are nearly all of them The show places of Japan are thronged with your countrymen at this season and they make fashionable resorts ol them I have been staying here for several months and I do believe Im about the only Englishman here Permit me to introduce myself and b produced a card bearing the name Stapleton Neville Travelers club LondonMy countrymen replied Hardy of faring his own card have a way of taking America with them wherever they go They travel to the ends of the earth to get out of their own sand and then they so thoroughly Americanize their favorite foreign re torts that they might quite as well have stayed at home When do you leave asked Ne llIeI day after tomorrow replied I am on my way to Russia on business and I am supposed to get there with as little delay as possible But there Is no boat starting for a week You cant very well leave for Vladivostok day after tomorrow Hardy smiled You forget our American enter prise he replied I have learned that a small boat leaves Hakodate in three days crossing the Japan sea and that by taking the train north ward through the Island I shall ar rive at Aomorl near the northern end of Nippon in time to connect with this boat I have already had tho agent here telegraph for passage for me I shall thus save a weeks time and shall be able to see from the car window the Interior of JapanthatI portion of the country which our friends In the dining room there got little Idea of By Jove Do you know that would OUT well fit In with my plans if you wouldnt object to a traveling com panion and there should be room for me als01IId be delighted replied Hardy charmed I assure you to have you como along Traveling alone Is a bore Shall you be going through to Aomorl Farther than that I too nm go ing to Russia through to Moscow and from there back to England Why then exclaimed Haidy IIshall have you as far as my destination StryetensklIExactly so And as we are leaving the town so soon what do you say to I cur prowling about tomorrow to give you an idea of the bally plnce and to taking it In in the evening in a jinrikisha 1 Its very picturesque both by night and by day and youll not find me a poor guide as I have knocked around considerably since I have been here The American fell In with this plan gratefully and thought himself in good luck that he waa about to nave a guide an AngloSaxon who know thou principal places of interest and possessed a slight command of the language Neville ho learned had been In the country over three monthsThey were out early tho next morn Ing and spent the entire day tramping about the fascinating streets of the Japanese city Did you bring your camera with you Neville asked Hardy as the latter appeared on the veranda of tho hotel where ho found his newmade friend waiting Theres a deal to photograph and these people are cer tainly picturesque even if they arent much elso Will they allow one to take photographs asked Hardy Oh certainly Thero are no restrictions whatever Their civilizations imitative you know copied mostly after tho English and American They Card allow perfect freedom In such matters simply because the AngloSaxons do They are a nation of monkeys Hardy went back after his kodak Tho two men as they walked away from the front steps of the Grand ho tel presented in their physical appearance as great a contrast as pos sible Neville tall largeboned florid blueeyed thicklipped Hardy of medium size dark slender wellknit and so erect that he seemed to be slightly taller than ho really was His suit of dark gray fitted him with that unob truslvo elegance that proclaims tho most expensive American tailors while his goldrimmed pincenez add ed Intellectual distinction to a high bred somewhat ascetic countenance- In the afternoon they walked down toward the seashore the Englishman still acting as guide That would make a flee view suggested Neville those houses along the beach that bit of sea and the hills yonder That Is so assented Hardy I be hove Ill take it If Im not careful I shall get all my films C9vcred with babies He opened his camera and rolled out the bellows Then he strolled back and forth for several moments gazing into the finder as he tried to decide on tho composition of the view that ho would take He pressed the bulb and was closing the Instrument when a Japanese In European dress stepped up to him and laid a detaining hand upon his arm You must give me that camera said the Japanese quietly in perfect English Hardy looked about In amazement Naturally his first was that he was being robbedDont try anything of that kind hero my man ho replied or Ill give you into the hands of the police The threat was suggested by the presence of two police officers who were standing near evidently watch- Ing tks scene The Japanese now called to In his own tougue and they approached I am an officer of tho law he said and you will be taken into cue A l tody it you resist I beg that you will not compel me to have the camera ta ken from you forcibly Hardy rarely allowed himself to exhibit excitement Better hand it to him advised Neville He Is evidently laboring un der some mistake which the author ties will to Jolly well anxious to rec tify when they find it out Hardy handed over his camera Ill go with you to the police sta tion ho said to the officer Do not put yourself to the trouble said the Japanese the police will know where to find you when they want you The Instrument will be returned to you when we are through with It at the Grand hotel Well I call that cool said Hardy as ho stood watching the three men who were walking off with his cam era Ill have that instrument back if I have to stay hero a month and make an International affair of it I Produced a Bearing the Name thought them wonder what they wanted of it What do you think- I havent tho least Idea replied Neville Probably they have heard that some other country prohibits ta king photographs As I told you they are a nation of monkeys Mr Hardy found his camera on his return to the hotel with a note that the films would be statingI him In the morning developed The incident which had been conducted in a masterful manner threw a now light on Japan It led him to believe that this was something more than a comicopera country and that the in habitants were not all babies CHAPTER II Searched by the Police The AngloSaxons are the only people who have any idea of personal lib erty remarked Hardy as the two men stood on the steps of the hotel waiting for their jinrikisha to arrive Fancy the authorities in New York or London taking away your camera and developing the films Just to see what pictures you have taken Well I got my camera back all right and Im going to consider myself In luck because I get my films developed free of charge I wonder It theres any thing else this obliging people would like to do for me before I go away At this moment the jinrikisha came up and the newlymade friends started out for their night expedition about the streets of Yokohamasuch an ex cursion as only Pierre Lot or Lafca dlo Hearn could describe adequately An Americans chief sensation on first getting into a jinrikisha Is loss of dignity There you sit perched in a narrow trim baby carriage driving a barelegged little man with an Inverted fishbasket on his head They trotted from place to placo till midnight or after Hardy enjoying himself hugely Tie took away with him a confused memory of dark nar row streets swarming with Japanese mostly babies of occasional low build ings where something seemed to bo going on Inside of steep acclivities at i which it was necessary to set out and walk and of steep declivities whore the manhorse leaned back at an an gle of 45 degrees and the muscles on his logs stood out in knots- I say cried Hardy to Neville if this thing ever gets away from him Ill be In a pretty pickle Youd travel to the bottom Jolly fast laughed Novllle who did not seem to be the least bit nervous Thero were Innumerable paper lan terns of course and one quarter of the town was lighted as if for a lawn party They were sitting on tho floor In the back room of a teahouse listen ing to the music furnished by three geishas when they were arrested Hardy had felt It a privilege to go into this place because his compan ion assured him that it was the real thing and not one of those resorts that are run for foreigners This statement was borne out by tho fact that tho dozen or more patrons whom they found there were natives with the ex ception of one a little foreigner who IIardyiand persisted in drawing Hardy and Neville into conversation The American took a dislike to him from tho firstDont resist dont resist whispered Neville as four policemen stepped up to them It wont do you the least good in the world dont you know Theyve made some bloom- Ing mistake and when they find out what it is theyll do everything in their power to make amends- I havent tho least Idea in the world of resisting replied Hardy goodnaturedly i this U really inter esting Whom do they take us for I wonder mOdernappear1Ing was lighted by an electric globe They walked up a broad flight of stairs and entered a room In the center of which a middleaged Japanese in the uni form of a general in the army sat at a table writing lIe was a corpulent man In shrewd eyes and stern features European training contended with Mongol cunning lie spoke for a very few moments in a low tone with a subordinate and evidently a result of this conference Neville was led from tho room lIe returned after about 20 minutes and Hardy glanced at him curiously If anything unpleasant had been done to him it did not show In his tacea fact which the American attributed to the others British Imperturbability Hardy himself was now led away lIe was taken Into a room about ten feet sQuare with baro floors and not an article of furniture Ho found him self alone two Japanese one of whom addressed him Immediately in a language that he did not under standI can not speak Japanese he re plied i If you wish to talk with me you will havo to find somoone who can speak English I was nut talking Japanese to you as I think you know replied his In quisitor In absolutely perfect English You are too modest as to your really remarkable linguistic acquirements But if it suits you to speak English at the present moment 1 shall be most happy to oblige you I am sorry to Inform you that you must submit to being searched Now really wouldnt that bo carrying matters too far askod Manly I had Intended to take this good naturedly It Interests thingI but searching meI really shall enter a protest against that I am an American citizen you know and If any Indignities are offered me I shall not fall to demand redress Unfortunately wo have nothing to do with that feature of the case replied tho Japanese Wo are under orders and we trust you will not put to the disagreeable necessity of using force Well go ahead said Hardy cheerily and If you find anything out ofI the ordinary Ill eat it They stopped briskly up to hlm and began to run their hands rapidly and deftly over his clothing and through his pocket As they worked ho talkedIf this had happened In Russia now where every man is suspected of being an anarchist or a spy I shouldnt have wondered at it Hut wo Americans have begun to look on you Japanese as civilized pojjple We jail you the Yank hello whats thatr They had taken from his overcoat pocket a bundle of papers which they opened under the electric bulb hang ing from a wire in the middle of the room and began to examine Hardy stepped forward briskly out of curl osity but ono of them throw out an arm as rigid as a bar of steel and pushed him back as easily as if ho I Am an Officer of the Law whoso as with as us were a child As nearly as he could toll from the distance maintained the paper seemed to bo covered with drawings and plans of some kind- I never saw that before ho ox claimed much wondering They went out together and left him In the mid die of the room Having nothing bet ter to do he lighted a cigarette and attempted to study it all out standing there with his hands In his pockets- I only hope they dont keep this farce up till I miss my train ho mused I have bought my ticket lIe was not kept waiting long Tho general himself came in to see him Of what am I accused 1 asked Har dy and why am I subjected to these Indignities 1 The general also spoko English Ho had shrewd fearless penetrating eyes and an absolutely dispassionate

senatorial race at this time elim- Inates a factor of much Interest but this does not menu that there will bo no politics plays during tho present legislative session On the other hand some of the live Heat politics known here for man years will bo on The adherents or the different factions already are jock eying for positions There Is much curiosity as to the possible attitude of former Coy J C W Beckham as- to party policy If anyone presumes for a minute that the former governor Is down and out so far ns the democratic party Is concerned ho Is apt to awaken somo day and face ono of the biggest surprises of his career Gov Beckham It Is believed Is playing a shrewd game at present lie U adver using the fact when questioned that he positively Is not n candidate for any position Neither the governor ship nor the senatorship two years hence could tempt him ho asserts There Is one thing the governor Is out for however and that is the scalps ot the men who put him out of the senatorial race two years ago Coy Beck ham is a good fighter and as editor ot the Kentucky State Journal the old eat democratic paper published here has n weapon both offensive and defensive which ho promises editorially to use during the next three months It Is believed that Gov Bcckharna In fluence will bo used to secure the pas sage of a county unit bill and If this Is done the republicans and the Hock ham democrats may be found working together The democratic majority In the senate taken singly will bo strong ly against any county unit measure but the republicans are expected to lint up with tho temperance democrats and If tho measure can be brought tc a vote the situation will be an Interesting one In the house as was the case two years ago a unit measure It expected to pass If Its supporters can get It up to a final vote The good roads bill fathered by Senator Joseph F Bosworth of Bell county makes it liosslblo by a constitutional amend meat which passed at the election Nov 2 last for the state to loan money to different counties sur rounded by certain safeguards for the building of Improved highways A- neW school bill Is another measure I around which wide Interest will cenI ter and the reapportionment measure hull Is another The latter was framed by a nonpartisan com mission appointed for the pur pose by Coy Wlllson While the measure as thus framed Is expected to be as fair and equitable as It Is pos sible for such a bill to be the chances for Its passage at the hands of the democratic majority are considered slim Tho i osltlon of the republicans during tho session will be aim ply that of Interested onlookers ready to take advantage of any opportunity to put It over on the opposition if an opening Is afforded Due to their small numbers this Is all that

Democrats to take a successful swat at Cannon All party legislation hangs In the balance Also Taft has been inveigled by tho Cannon crowd into threatening to use tho power of tho patronage against the Insurgents and Is widening the split that way for not a single insurgent Is scared at nil by then threats They are nlmp i ly getting madder and madder all tho I time and tho danger Is that tileI will be turned against Taft Instead of just against Aldrich and Cannon as they have been BO tar But all tub tolls very little To get down to a solemn recital of tho trek the row began In the middle ot last week when it was learned that Taft and tho Cannon crowd were to join In trying to force tho insurgents into line Some ono has boon lying to Taft and ho has not caught on yet lie Is after just ono thing Uio passage of certain legis lation lie has never had any other thing in mind but to get thru tho legislation he wants and it Is good legislation too So he has been try ing to keep tn with Cannon ot al for the sake of that And when they told him that tho insurgents were going to tight this legislation it made him mud and he promised to uso what power ho had to compel thorn to get into linonot for the tariff aa Cannon claimed but for Itho measures he Is now advocating Tho funny tiring about it is that the Insurgents aro already In line for all those measures and it Is the regulars who will oppose them 1C any ono does Hut Taft was fooled Into making tho threats against those ItIWillilJrobably the Cannon crowd was using Its control of tho Congressional Campaign Committee to fight the Insurgent Republicans In their home districts i and was using tho money given by ItepubIIllcanthem So the insurgents announced that they would come back too and they will tight the regulars as hard as possible Reports from tho country whore tho tight will bo hot that is tho Middle West show that it is safe to say that unless somothlngIvery unusual happens there moro Insurgent Republicans next Congress than In this one In spite of all that tho Cannon crowd can do to tho contrary Following this came the Presidents morsngo A full review of it will be found on another page Wo will only stop to point out two things First that it Is almost exactly nsI we prophocled It that It has not the recommendationI for a valuation of the rallrpads The second thing is that in the message tho President evidently is asking for all flat he thinks ho can get and not for what ho wants Still tho recom mendations arc vory good and It en acted will form a great advance all along the lino of tho regulation and control of corporations and trusts The plan Is to leave them with pow er to do all the good they can In the way of cheaper production and to tako away their powers ot doing Willibeany ground already gained to abllndonI mises to anforce tho law have better than it has ever been enforced and ho asks us to take Certain stops which wo all approve and certain others which some do not approve but which he feels are necessary to complete tho plan The message is a good one and if noth lug else had happened would havo gono v a long way toward restoring that confidence of the people which Taft has gradually been losing But tho message was followed tho nfext day by the most serious blunder which luis been made by an American president In tho memory of liv ing man tho dismissal

administration of a president who wont in with an Immonsa majority and high hopes and backed by the universal good wishes of all parties we find that tho Republican party Is breaking up tho avowed policies of I the last administration as embodied i prosdentconfidence of tho people and there Is strong evidence that the next Congress will not bo under the wane con trol as this one What Is the reason 7 The first plrico to seek it of course It In the actions of Pros Taft and as all others aro more or loss con noted WltJI him lot us consider his actions since ho assumed office Tile Citizen correspondent has no vor shared tho views of those who believe TaW would become a friend of tho Intercotfl Ho knows that onInltho campaign together Did tholr plans stop there I believe not li believe that tho two men agreeing as to the desired ends outlined a curtain course of action which they I believed would accomplish tho great est good for the greatest number and that Taft was chosen as man to carry it tb1uIAny observer ministrations will recognize at once I that there woro certain great weak nesses In tho Roosevelt methods While ho prevented many wrongs and accomplished some good ho aroused so much opposition as to defeat many of tho measures ho was working for He scared people but ho also made them mad Lawc were not what they should be and the desirable thing was r to get th IC law amended and somo nw ones pasccd Taft and Roosevelt believe agreed on this point Taft II a man with many friends and a genius for making more Ho had not been In the IlmueroU tlghte and BO was not

mmeurca Roosovolt had sear 11 them U was decided that Tarts method ought to bo to wheedle So Taft took up the work of try ing to got the good laws thru friendship with tho men In control He was warmly welcomed by those gon- tIrwenthoy heal been some scared and thoy wore willing to do n good dtlAl to prevent Roosevelts coming back and noli attar them again So they agreed to Goo proloattlonadd i winked the other eye They became fast friends of Taft and every time ho started to do some thing they told him that It ho did they would find It Impossible to control their friends and that preoiaui legislation would be lost So he didnt do It In ordw to keep appolnto to stand by him whether or not ho was wrong It t oms door that he told Balllngor ho- would protect him but that ho mutt snot do it again But tltoae othor friends of Balllngers wanted to got Plnchot out and BO kept things hot and finally Tat in protecting llaillnger got Into a place where Plnchot couldnt stand It and thon Taft had to discharge him But whllo Taft Is technically correct in drop ping Plnchot ho ought to drop Ballln gel too Balllngor Is wrong Ho hiss never claimed that ho was right all ho has over hud to say for himself was that he did not break any laws Ho didnt perhaps but ho cortnlnly did not protect the peoples Interests and tho people know it and they are for Plnehot Taft was forced to move at lap to do a tiling he hated tho interests have worked him And no with regards the insurgent The Cannon bunch has worked him there too The Insurgents are Tor tho same things Taft is they would stand by him much better than tho other crowd but he has not waited till the loyalty of tho two sides was proved upho hum lowed his throat aoxbut It makes bad reeling What will happen heaven knows and Information from that point is scarce It tho AldrichCannon crowd keep their word Tafts programme of legislation wll cq thru all right for the Insurgents will not fight that If that happens it will be good for tho country and maybe for Taft And at any rate he will have done all that a good and true man could if Aldrich and Cannon break tholr word as they havo dono before it will be up to Mr Taft to drop tho pie plan and try the othor I think it Is sate to say that Roosevelt will never como back to fight Taft that If Roosevelt ever gots Into the ring again Taft will bo with him But you can never tell As to Con gress the only question is how much Aldrich and Cannon will bo able to save out of the wreck As to tho I Republican party there have been so many predictions latoly that 1C was I going to break up that one hates to say It over again but I for one cannot see how Cannon and Cummins can ever again stand on the acne platform And If they cannot It moans that our grand old party will have a different

AMERICAN INTERESTS FOUR POWERS TO CONTROL Secretarys Statement Makes It Clear That America England France and Germany Are to Control Terri tonal Rights of China Washington A firebrand was tossed into the politics of tho far cast by tho president The statement Is borno out by tho terms of a statement given out by Secretary of State Knox Thursday which means that Japan must aban don her machinations against Ameri can Interests and Chinese sovereignty inManchuriaA of the state ment makes it clear that Japan has been notified that she cannot hold sovereignty over railway properties In ManchuriaThe further flouts Japan openly by calling public attention to a new and startling policy of this government namely that it Is the United States Great Britain Franco and Germany which are the guardians of the territorial rights of China It points out in a way incapable of mis understanding that it is the money of the four great monied powers named which Is to control the des tinies of China The logical conclusion of the neces sary corollary of the Taft Knox statement Is that the powers named by the president are to control the destinies of the east and of the world The position of the president and of Secretary Knox on Its face seems to be a reversal of the traditional pol- Icy that the United States shall make no entangling alliances The proposed pact however which the United States Is certain to put In concrete form and which Includes three great European powers became necessary It is argued here when Japan fiagrant ly violated tho McKinleyHay policy of the open door In China and seized lines of railway as military highways That is the justification set up for the magnificent political structure for the control of the world by the four great military nations the United States Germany France and England Stated in the language of diplomats Japan has been asked to agree to the neutralization of the railways of Manchuria Russia necessarily has been asked to agrfeo to the same proposition It Is to Russias interest to agree because the agreement will guarantee to her absolute safety for her own railway projects which are menaced by Japans aggressiveness In ManchuriaThe department is optimistic as to tho outcome of its grave move on the International chessboard It Is true that Secretary Knox says that Japan may agree but he also very shrewdly says that all he knows at present about Japans sympathy with this movement is contained In some unofficial sporadic Japanese press reading matter TAFT MAY LET PINCHOT OUT President Angry at Chief Forester Because of Letter Criticising Exe cutlve Read In Senate Washington The DalllngerPlnchot storm broke In the senate when a letter was read from the chief for ester criticising President Taft for the dismissal ot Louis R Glavls from the United States land office A hurried cabinet meeting and a broad Intimation that Plnchot was likely to lose his official head were among the developments that followed the reading of the letter In the senate The Pinchot declaration came in a letter addressed to Senator Dolliver of Iowa and dealt with the course of Glavls and his former associates in the United States forestry bureau Messrs Price and Shaw As soda as President Taft heard that Plnchot had sent such a letter and that It was read In the senate ho sent a hurry call to all the membersj of his cabinet for a subjectPresident Taft some time ago Issued an order that no subordinate In any government department should dis close any Information to congress ex cept through the head of the department Inasmuch as Mr Plnchots let ter describes Glavls as the most vig orous defender of the peoples Inter ests despite tho fact that President Taft had declared Glavls unfit longer to remain In the public service the direct slap at the president and the further declaration by Mr Plnchot that the Cunningham coal lands really were about to go to fraudulent claim ants until Glavls and the forestry bu reau officials took a hand in tho fight aroused Mr Taft to keen resentment Some action as to Mr Plnchots course In the letter Incident Is not unexpected Killed Hurt In Gas Blast Jamestown N YOno man was killed and

Hlatc composed of five judges desig nated for such purpose from among the circuit judges of the United States to be known as the United State court of commerce which court shall be clothed with exclusive original jurisdic tion over me following classes of cases I All cases for the enforcement oth erwise than by adjudication and collection of a forfeiture or penalty or by In fliction of criminal nunlshment of any order of the Interstate commerce com mission other than for tho payment of money 2 Alt cases brought to enjoin set aside annul or suspend any order or requirement of the

such mandamus proccecdtng hi under the provisions of section S or section 13 of the Interstate commerce law are authorized to be maintained In a Circuit court of the United States Reasons precisely analogous to those which Induced the congress to create tho court of customs appeals by the provi stone In the tariff act of August 5 1309 may be urged In support of tho creation bf the commerce court In order to provide a sufficient sum iter of judge to enable this court to be constituted It will be necessary to au thorize the appointment of live add tlonal circuit judges who for the purposes of appointment might bo distrib uted to thosa circuits where there la at the present time the largest volume of business luch ni the second third fourth eventb and eighth circuits The act should empower

might be empowered to al low a stay of the commissions order tor a period of not more than GO days but pending application to the court of Its order or Injunction then only where his order shall contain a specific finding bared upon evidence submitted to the judge making the order and Identified by reference thereto that such Irreparable damage would result to the petitioner specifying the nature of the damage Under the existing law the Interstate commerce commission Itself Initiates and defends litigation In the courts for the cnforeeemnt or In the defense of its order and decrees and for this purpose It employs attorney who while subject to the control of the attorney general act upon the Initiative and under the Instruc ion of the commission This blending of administrative legislative and Judl chat functions tends In my opinion to Impair the efficiency of the commission by clothing It with partisan characteris tics and robbing It of the Impartial judi cial attitude It should occupy In pass Ing upon questions submitted to It In my opinion all litigation affecting the government should be under the direct control of the department of justice and I therefore recommend that all proceedings affecting orders and decrees of the Interstate commerce commission be brought by or against the United States eo nomine and be placed In charge of an assistant attorneygeneral acting under the direction of the attorney general Would Permit Agreements In view of the complete control over ratemaking and other practices of In terstate carriers established by the acts of congress and as recommended In this communication I see no reason why agreomnts between carriers subject to the act specifying the classifications of freight and the totes fares and charges for transportation of passengers and freight which they may agree to estab lish should not bo permitted provided copies of such ngreemnts be promptly toImere art and subject to the right of any parties to such agrremnt to cancel It ratefaresdays notlco In writing to the other par ties and to the catnmlsslan Under tho existing law the commis don can only act with respect to an al leged excessive rate or unduly discrimin atory practice by a carrier on a com plaint made by some Individual affected thereby I see no reason why tho com mission should not be authorized to act on Its own Initiative as well as upon the complaint of an Individual In Investigat ing tho fairness of any existing rate or practice and I recommend the amend ment of the law to so provide and also that the commission shall be fully empowered beyond any question to pass upon tho classifications of commodities for purpose of fixing rates la like man nor as It may now do with respect to the maximum rate applicable to any trans portation Existing Law Powerless Under the existing law the commission may not Investigate an Increase In rates until after It snail become effective and although one or more carriers may file with the commission a proposed Increase In rates or change In classifications or other alteration of tho existing rates or classifications to become effective at tho expiration of 30 days from such filing no proceeding ran be taken to Investigate tho reasonableness of such proposed change until after It becomes operative On the other hand If the commission shape make an order finding that an ex hating rate Is excessive and directing It to be reduced the carrier affected may by proceedings In the courts stay the operation of such order of reduction for months and even years It has there fore been suggested that the commis sion should be empowered whenever a proposed Increase In rates Is med at onco to enter upon an Investigation of tho reasonableness of the Increase and to make an order postponing the effec tive date of such Increase until after such Investigation shall be completed To this much objection has been made on the part of carriers They contend that this would be In effect to take from the owners of tho railroads the management of their properties anti to clothe the In terstate commerce commission with the original ratemaking power a policy which was much discussed at the time of the passage of tho Hepburn act In 19056 and which was then and has always been distinctly rejected and In reply to the suggestion that they are able by resorting to the courts to stay the taking effect of the order of the commis sion until Its reasonableness shall have been Investigated by the courts whereas tho people are deprived of any such remedy with respect to action by the carriers they point to the provlsons of the Interstate commerce act providing for restitution to the shippers by carriers of excessive rates charged In cases where the order of the commission reducing such rates are affirmed It may be doubted how effective this remedy really Is perhaps ceedings to recover the excessive rates which they may required to pay for the havereason that they have added the rates paid to tho cost of the goods and thus enhanced the price there pUbllohaatransportation arate tariff nied annually with the In terstate commerce commission amount ImpossibilIty making of tariffs

possible to establish ad tobfde1u1 state commerce law but so as always to maintain the principle of competition be tween naturally competing lines and suchtinesthe most potent means of exercising such control has been through the holding of stock of one railroad company by an lineThla thetawsto suddenly reverse that policy so far as It affects the ownership of stocks here tofore so acquired would be to Inflict grievous Injury not only upon the cor porations affected but upon a large body of the Investment holding public Plan to End Rail Combine I however recommend that the law shall be amended so as to provide that from and after the date of Its passage no railroad company subject to the interstate commerce act shall directly or In anykindlease any railroad of any other corpora respectingbusinessmerce net applies Rut especially for tho protection of the minority stockholders In securing to them the best market for ther stock I recommend that such prohibition be coupled with a proviso that It shall not operate to prevent any corporation which at the date of passage of such aCt shall own not less than one half of the entire Issued and outstanding capital stock of any other railroad com pany from acquiring all or the remain der of such stock nor to prohibit any railroad company which at the date of the enactment of the law Is operating n railroad of any other corporation under lease executed of a term not less than 6 years from acquiring the reversionary ownership of the demised railroad but that such provisions shall not operate to authorize or validate the acquisition through stock ownership or otherwise of a competing line or Interest therein In violation of the antitrust or any other laThe Republican platform of 1903 further declares In favor of such national legislation and supervision ns will pre vent the future overIssue of stocks and bonds by Interstate carriers and In order to carry out Its provisions I recommend tho enactment of a law providing that no railroad corporation subject to the In terstate commerce net shall hereafter for any purpose connected with or relating to any part of Its business governed by said act Issue any capital stock without previous or simultaneous payment to It of not less than the par value of such stock or any bonds or other obligations except notes maturing not more than one year from the date of their Issue Without the previous or simultaneous pay ment to such corporation of not less than the par value of such bonds or other ob ligations or If Issued at less than their peer value then not without such pay ment of tho reasonable market value of such bonds or obligations as ascertained by the Interstate commerce commission and that no property service or other thing than money shall be taken In payment to such carrier corporation of the par or other required price of such stock bond or other obliga lion except tho fair value of such plop arty services or other thing ascertained by the commission and that such act shall also contain provisions to prevent the abuse by the Improvident or Improper Issue of notes maturing at a period not exceeding II months from date In such manner as to commit the commission to the approval of a larger amount of stock or bonds In order to retire such notes than should legitimately have been retiredSuch act should also provide for the approval by the Interstate commerco corn mission of the amount of stock and bonds to be Issued by any railroad company subject to this act upon any reorganiza tion pursuant to judicial sale or other legal proceedings In order i prevent tho Issue of stocks and bonds to an amount In excess of the fair value of the prop erty which Is the subject of such reor ganization By my direction the attorney general has drafted a bill to carry out these recommendations which will be fur nished upon request to the appropriate committee whenever It may be desired ANTITRUST LAW AND FEDERAL INCORPORATIONS Government Control of Big Industrial Corporations Favored Asserts Scpe of Present Law Is Too Wider There has been a marked tendency In business In this country for 40 years last past toward combinations of capital and plant In manufacture sale pad trans portation The moving causes have been several First It has rendered possible great economy second by a union of former competitors It has reduced the probability of excessive competition and third If the combination has been ex Inthotamers have been adopted the combiners have secured a monopoly and complete control of prices or rate A combination successful In achieving complete control over a particular line of manufacture has frequently been called a trust I presume that the derivation of the word Is to be explained by the fact that a usual method of carrying out the plan of the combination has been to put the capital and plants of various Individuals firms or corporations engaged In tho same business under the control of trusteesThe se In the capital of n busi ness for fhe purpose of reducing the cost of production and effecting economy In the management has become as essen that In modern progress as the change from the hand tool to the machine When therefore wo come to construe the object of congress In adopting the so called Sherman AntiTrust Act In 1C90 whereby In the first section every contract combination In the form of a trust or otherwise or conspiracy In re straint of Interstate or foreign trade or commerce It condemned as unlawful antI made subject to Indictment and restraint by Injunction and whereby In the second section every monopoly or attempt to monopolize and every combination or conspiracy with other persons to monopo lize any part of Interstate trade or com merce Is denounced as Illegal and made subject to similar punishment or re straint we must Infer that the evil aimed at was not the mere bigness of the en terprise but It was the aggregation of capital and plants with the express or Implied Intent to restrain Interstate or foreign commerce or to monopolize It In whole or In part i Trust Not Necessarily Bad Monopoly destroys competition entire ly and the restraint of the full and free operation of competition has a tendency to restrain commerco and trade A com bination of persons formerly engaged In trade as partnerships or corporations or otherwise of course eliminates the com that existed between them but the Incidental ending of that competition Is not to be regarded as necessarily a direct restraint of trade unless of such an allembracing character that the In tention and effect to restrain trade are apparent from the circumstances or are to be the object of the combination A mere Incidental restraint of trade and competition Is not within the Inhibition of the act but It Is where the combination or conspiracy or contract is Inevitably and directly a substantial constraint of competition and so a restraint of trade that the statute Is violatedThe condition of the act Is supplement of the first A direct restraint of trade such as Is condemned In the first section If successful and used to suppress competition Is one of the com monest method of securing a trade monopoly condemned In the second section t- It Is possible for the owners of a bust ness of manufacturing and selling useful articles of merchandise so to conduct their business as not to violate the In hibition of the antitrust law and yet to secure to themselves the benefit of the economies of management and of produc tion due to the concentration under one control of large capital and many plants If they use no other Inducement than the constant low price of their product and its good quality to attract custom and their business Is a profitable one they violate no law If their actual competitors are small In comparison with the total capital Invested the prospect of new Investment of capital by others In such a profitable business Is sufficient ly near and potential to restrain them In the prices at which they sell their prod uct nut If they attempt by a use of their preponderating capital and by a sale of their goods temporarily at unduly low prices to drive out of business their competitors or It they attempt by ex clusive contracts with their patrons and threats of nondealing except upon such contracts or by other methods of a elm liar character to use the largeness of their resources and the extent of their output compared with the total output ns a means of compelling custom and theydlstloto establish a monopoly and violate the act Law to Suppress Abuses The object of the antitrust law was to suppress the abuses of business of the kind described It was not to Interfere with a great volume of capital which concentrated tinder one organization re duced the cost of production and made Its profit thereby and took no advantage toUlloI wish to make this distinction as emphatic as possible because I conceive that nothing could happen more destruc give to the prosperity of this country than tho loss of that great economy In produc tion which has been and will be effect ed In all manufacturing lines by the em ployment of large capltnliunder one management I do not mean to say that there Is not a limit beyond which the economy of management by the enlarge ment of plant ceases and where this happens and combination continues beyond this point the very fact shows In tent to monopolize and not to economize The original purpose of many combina tons of capital In this country was not confined to the legitimate and proper ob ject of reducing the cost of production On the contrary the history of most trades will show at times a feverish do sire to unite by purchase combination or otherwise all the plant In the country engaged In the manufacture of a par ticular line of goods The Idea was rite that thereby a monopoly could be ef fected and a control of prices brought about which would Inure to the profit of those engaged In the combination The path of commerce Is strewn with failures of such combinations Their projectors found that the union of all plants did not prevent competition especially where proper economy had not been pursued In the purchase and In the conduct of the business after the aggregation was com plete There were enough however of such successful combinations to arouse the fears of good patriotic men as to the result of a continuance of this movement toward the concentration In the hands of a few of the absolute control of the prices of all manufactured products Refers to Sugar Trust Case The antitrust statute was passed In 1890 and prosecutions were soon begun under It In tho case of the United States 8 Knight known as the sugar trust case because of the narrow scope of the pleadings the combination sought to bo enjoined was held not to be Included within the prohibition of the act because the averments did not go beyond the mere acquisition of manufacturing plants for tho refining of sugar and did not In clude that of a direct and Intended re straint upon trade and commerce In the sale and delivery of sugar across slats boundaries and In foreign trade The result of the sugar trust case was not happy In that It gave other companies and combinations seeking a similar meth od of making profit by establishing in absolute control and monopoly In a par ticular line of manufacture a sense of Immunity against prosecutions In the federal jurisdiction and where that Jurisdiction Is to anecessarily business which Is commdisur I ate with the boundaries of the country- no state prosecution Is able to supply the needed machinery for adequate restraint or punishment The supreme court In several of Its decisions has declined to read Into the statute the word unreasonable before restraint of trade on the ground that the statute applies to all restraints and does not Intend to leave the court tho discretion to determine what Is a reason able restraint of trade Tho expression restraint of trade comes from tho com mon law and at common law there wore certain covenants Incidental to the car rying out of a main or principal con tract which were said to bo covenants In partial restraint of trade and were held to be enforcible because reasonably adapted to the performance of the main or principal contract and under the general contract and under the general language used by the supreme court In several cores It would seem that even such Inc tal covenants In restraint of IntersUj trade were within the In hibition of the statute and must bo con demned In order to avoid such a result I have thought and said that It might be well to amend the statute so as to exclude such covenants from Its condemnation A close examination of the later decisions of the court however shows quite clear ly In cases presenting the exact ques tion that such Incidental restraints of trade are held not to bo within the law and are excluded by tho general state ment that to be within the statute the effect upon the trade of the restraint must be direct and not merely Inciden tal or Indirect The necessity therefore for an amendment of the statute so as to exclude these Incidental and bene ficial covenants In restraint of trade held In common law to be reasonable does not existIn some of the opinions of the federal circuit judges there have been Intima lions having the effect If sound to weaken the force of the statute by In cluding within It absurdly unimportant combinations and arrangements and suggesting therefore tho wisdom of chang- Ing Its language by limiting its appli cation to serious combinations with In tent to restrain competition or control prices A reading of the opinions of the supreme court however makes the change unnecessary for they exclude from the operation of the act contract affecting Interstate trade In but a small and Incidental way and apply the stat ute only to the real evil aimed at by congressThe has been on the statute book now for two decades and the su preme court In more than a dozen opin ions has construed It In application to various phases of business combinations and In reference to various subject matter It has applied It to the union un der one control of two competing interstate railroads to private manufacturers engaged In a plain attempt to control prices and suppress competition In a part of the country Including a dozen states and to many other combinations affect ing Interstate trade The value of a statute which Is rendered more and more certain In Its meaning by a series of de cisions of the supreme court furnishes a strong reason for leaving the act as It Is to accomplish Its useful purpose even though If It were being newly en acted useful suggestions as to change of phrase might be made For Government Control Many people conducting great bust nesses have cherished a hope and a be lief that In some way or other a line may be drawn between good trusts and bad trusts and that It Is possible by amendment to the antitrust law to make a distinction under which good combina tions may be permitted to organize suppress competition control prices and do It all legally If only they do not abuse the power by taking too great profit out of the business They point with force to certain notorious trusts as having grown Into power through criminal methods by the use of Illegal rebates and plain cheat Ing and by various acts utterly violative of business honesty or morality and urge the establishment of some legal line of separation by which criminal trusts of this kind can bo punished and they on tho other hand be permitted under the law to carry on their business Now the public and especially the business public ought to rid themselves of the Idea that such a distinction Is practic able or can be Introduced Into the statute Certainly under the present antitrust law no such distinction exists It has ben proposed however that the word reasonable should be made a part of the statute and then It should be left to the court to say what Is a reasonable restraint of trade what is a reasonable suppression of competition what Is a reasonable monopoly I venture to think that this Is to put Into the hands of the court n power Impossible to exercise on any consistent principle which will In sure the uniformity of decision essential to just judgment It Is to thrust upon the courts a burden that they havo no precedents to enable them to carry and to give them a power approaching arbitration the abuse of which might Involve our whole judicial system In dis aster An Aid to Business Virtue In considering violations of the anti trust law We ought of course not to forget that that law makes unlawful methods of carrying on business whluh before Its passage were regarded as evi dence of business sagacity and success and that they were denounced In this act not because of their Intrinsic Immoral ity but because of the dangerous ro sults toward which they tended the con centration of Industrial power In the hands of the few leading to oppres sion and Injustice In dealing therefore with many of the men who have used the methods condemned by the statute for the purpose of maintaining a profit able business wo may well facilitate a change by them In tho method of doing business and enable them to bring It back Into the zone of lawfulness with out losing to the country the economy of management by which In our domestic trade the cost of production has been materially lessened nnd In competition with foreign manufacturers our foreign trade has been greatly Increased Through all our consideration of this grave question however we must Insist that the suppression of competition the controlling of prices and the monopoly cr attempt to monopolize In Interstate commerce and business are not only un lawful but contrary to the public good and that they must be restrained and punished until ended Asks National Corporation Law I therefore recommend the enactment by congress of a general law providing for the formation of corporations to en gage In trade and commerce among the states end with foreign nations protect ing them from undue Interference by the states and regulating their activities so as to prevent the recurrence under national auspices of those abuses which have arisen under state control Such a law should provide for the Issue of stock of such corporations to an amount equal only to the cash paid In on the stock and If the stock be Issued for property then at a fair valuation ascertained under approval and supervision of federal authority after a full and corn plete disclosure of all the facts pertain ing to the value of such property and the Interest therein of the persons to whom It to proposed to Issue stock In payment of such property It should subject the real and personal property only of such corporations to the same taxation as Im by the states within which It may be situated upon other similar property locatud therein and It should require such corporations to file full end com plate reports of their operations with the department of commerce and labor at regular Intervals Corporations organlre under this act should be prohibited from acquiring and holding stock In other cor porations except for special reasons upon approval by the proper federal author ity thus avoiding the creation under national auspices of the holding com pany with subordinate corporations In different states which has been such an effective agency In the creation of the great trusts and monopolies If tho prohibition of the antitrust act against combinations In restraint of trade Is to be effectively enforced It Is essential that the national government shall provide for the creation of national corporations to carry on a legitimate business throughout the United States The conflicting laws of the different states of the union with respect to foreign corporations make It difficult If not Impossible for one corporation to comply with their requirements so as to carry- on business In a number of different statesTo suggestion that this proposal oj federal Incorporation for industrial com binations Is Intended to furnish them a refuge In which to continue Industrial business under federal protection It should be said that the measure contem plated does not repeal the Sherman anti trust law and Is not to be framed so as to permit the doing of the wrongs which It Is the purpose of that law to prevent but only to foster a continuance and advance of the highest Industrial efficiency without permitting Industrial abuses Sure to Meet Opposition Such a national Incorporation law will bo opposed first by those who believe that trusts should be completely broken up and their property destroyed It will be opposed second by those who doubt the constitutionality of such federal In corporation and even If It Is valid object to It as too great federal centralization It will be opposed third by those who will Insist that a mere voluntary Incor poration like this will not attract to Its assistance the worst of the offenders against the antitrust statute and who will therefore propose Instead of It a system of compulsory licenses for all fed eral corporations engaged In Interstate business Let us consider these objections In their order The government Is now trying to dissolve some of these combinations and It is not the Intention of the government to desist In tho least degree In Its effort to end these combinations which are to day monopolizing the commerce of this country that where It appears that tho acquisition and concentration of property go to the extent of creating a monopoly of substantially and directly restraining Interstate commerce It Is not the Inten tion of the government to permit this monopoly to exist under federal Incor poration or to transfer to the protecting wing of the federal government of a state corporation now violating the Sher man act Hut It Is not and should not be the policy of the government to pre vent reasonable concentration of capital which Is necessary to the economic devel opment of manufacture trade and com merce This country has shown power of economic production that has aston shed the world and has enabled us to compete with foreign manufacturers In many markets It should be the care of the government to permit such concentration of capital while keeping open the avenues of individual enterprise and the opportunity for a man or corporation with reasonable capital to engage In business If we would maintain our present business supremacy we should give to Industrial concerns an opportunity to organize or to concentrate their legitimate capital in a federal corpora tion and to carry on their large business within the pines of the law May Doubt Constitutionality Second There are those who doubt the constitutionality of such federal Incorpor ation The regulation of Interstate and foreign commerce Is certainly conferred In the fullest measure upon congress and If for the purpose of securing In the most thorough manner that kind of regulation congress shall Insist that it may provide and authorize agencies to carry on that commerce It would seem to be within its power this has been distinctly affirmed with respect to railroad companies doing an Interstate business and Interstate bridges The power of Incorporation has been exercised by congress and upheld by the supreme court In this regard Why then with respect to any other form of Interstate commerce like the sale of goods across state boundaries and Into foreign countries may the same power not be asserted Indeed It Is the very tact that they carry on Interstate com merce that makes these great Industrial concerns subject to federal prosecution and control How far as Incidental to the carrying on of that commerce It may be within the power of the federal government to authorize the manufacturer of goods Is perhaps more open to discussion though a recent decision of the su preme court would seem to answer that question In the affirmative Even those who are willing to concede that the supreme court may sustain such federal Incorporation are Inclined to op pose It on the ground of Its tendency to the enlargement of the federal power nt the expense of the power of the state It Is a sufficient answer to this argument to say that no other method can be sug gested which offers federal protection on the one hand and close federal supervi sion on the other of these great organi rations that are In fact federal because they are as wide ns the country and are entirely unlimited In their business by state lines Nor Is the centralization of federal power under this act likely to be excessive Only the largest corporation woujd avail themselves of such a law because the burden of complete federal su pcrvli on and control that must certainly be Imposed to accomplish the purpose of acceptedby I third objection that the worst offenders will not accept federal Incorporation In InJunction der the an1 trust law are so thorough and sweepltf that the corporations at fected ty them have but three courses before them First they nust resolve themselves Into their com ient parts In the differ ent states with a consequent loss to themselves of cnJtal and effective organ ization and to th country xof concen trated energy and enterprise or second In defiance of the taw and under soma secret trust they rvbst attempt to con tinue their business In violation of the federal statute and thus Incur the pen alties of contempt nap bring on an In evitable criminal prose utlon of the Individuals named In the tecree and their associates or Third they must reorgtilze and accept In good faith the federal charter I sug gest a federal compulsoi r license law urged as a substitute for k federal Incor poration law Is unnecessary except to reach that kind of corporatjm which by virtue of the considerations already ad vanced will tnko advantage voluntarily of an Incorporation law whl o the other state corporations doing at Interstate business do not need the iut rvlslon or the regulation of federal llav se and would only be unnecessarily burdened thereby v The attorney general at my aujestlon has drafted a federal Incorporation law embodying the views I have attempted to set forth and It wilt be at the disposi lion of the appropriate committees of congress WILLIAM H TAPT The White House Jan 7 1910 r Gt t140tllWorUiNbUIINiPttIWYa rlII 1 ltlOl90f0 I East Kentucky Correspondence I
