and for this purpose It employs attorneys who while subject to the control of the attorney general act upon the Initiative and under the instruc tlons of the commission This blending of administrative legislative and Judicial functions tends In ray opinion to Impair the efficiency of the commission charactertsticcial attitude It should ccupy In pass Ing upon questions submitted to It In my opinion

this communication I eeelno ison why agreemnU between carrier subject to the act specifying the classifications of freight and the rates fares and charges for transportation of passengers and freight Which they may agree to estab flab should not be permitted provided copies of such agreemnU be promptly filed with the commission but subject to all the provisions of the Interstate commerce act and subject to the right of to such agreemnt to cancel It Ianypartltl or any of the agreed rates or classifications by 30 days notice In writing to the other par ties and to the commission Under the existing law the commission 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 the com mission should not be authorized to act on Its own Initiative as well as upon the complaint of an Individual in investigat log the fairness of any existing rate or practice and I recommend thc amendment of the law to so provide and also that the commission shall be fully em powered beyond any question to pass npon the classifications of commodities for purpose of fixing rates in 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 shall 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 the rates or classifications to beomeetrecUve at the expiration of 30days from such filing no proceeding can lbo taken to Investigate the reasonableness of such proposed change until after it becomes operative On the other bands if the commission shall make an order finding that an ex isting rate Is excessive and directing It maybyoperation of such order of reduction for months and even years It has there fore been suggested that the com mll sion should be empowered whenever a proposed increase in rates ls flied at once Jo enter upon an Investigation of the reasonableness of the increase and tq 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 the railroads the management of their properties and to clothe the In tersute commerce commission with the original ratemaking power policy which was much discussed at the time of the passage of the Hepburn act In 1905C and which wan then and has always been distinctly rejected and In reply to the suggestion that they are able by resortlng to the courts to stay the taking effect of the order of the commission until its reasonableness shall have been Investigated by the courts whert asvthe people are deprived of any such remedy with respect to action by the carriers they point to the provlott of the Interstate commerce act providing for restitution to the shippers by carriers of excessive rates charged in cases where finding the fort he had erected at Na vld d destroyed and the garrison massacred he retraced his tracks to a small but sheltered harbor near Monte Cristl where he disembarked his weary men and munitions and prom slons and built a town which be calle Isabella after his royal patroness He erected a church a public storehouse known as the kings bouse i and a res idence for himself known as the gov ernors palace These were of stone Many private houses were constructed of wood reedsaud such other rusts V Iiiibt ii frJ y 1 J i the order of the commission reducing such rotes are affirmed It may be doubt ed how effective this remedy really Is perhapceedlngs to recover the excessive ratrs which they may have been required to pay for tIm simple reason that they have added the rates paid to the cost of the goods and thus enhanced

be necessary If their active concurrence were requited In the ma king of every tariff has satisfied me that this power If granted should be con terred In a very limited and restricted formCommission Should Probe Change I therefore recommend that the Interstate commerce commission be empowered whenever any proposed Increase of rates Is tiled at once either on complaint or of Its own motion to enter upon an Investigation Into the reasonable ness of such change and that It be fur ther empowered In Its discretion to postpone the effective date of such pro exceedIng thistimebyItsall or fix the

reasonable havebeenas to empower the commission to take such action even when one existing rea sonable and satisfactory route already additionalbe a reasonable proposition The Republican platform of 1908 de clftrt Jn favor of amending the Inter stat mmerce law but so as always to maiflMn the principle of competition be twesjp naturally competing lines and suchlinesthd most potent means of exercising such control has been through the holding of stock of one railroad company by an other company owning a competing line This condition has grown up under ex press legislative power conferred by the laws of many states and to attempt now to 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 inter state commerce act shall directly or in anykindlease any railroad of any other coirpora respectingbusinessmerce act applies But especially for

or any bonds or other obligations except notes maturing not more than one year from the date of their Issue without the previous simultaneous pay ment to such corporation of not less than the par

ood by a union of former comp it has reduced the probability f jcceislve competition and third It tho combination has been ex tensive enough and certain methods In the treatment of competitors and cus tomers have been adopted the combiners have secured a monopoly and complete control of prices or rates 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 individ uals firms or corporations engaged In the same business under the control of trustees The Increase In the capital of a business for the purpose of reducing the cost uf production and effecting economy In tho management has become as essen tint In modern progress ns the change from the hand tool to the machine When therefore wo come to construe the object of congress in adopting the nocalled Sherman AntiTrust Act In whereby in the first section very contract combination In the form of a trust or otherwise or conspiracy in restraint of Interstate or foreign trnle orIcommerce U condemned as unlawful 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 lire any part of Interstate trade or commerce Is denounced as Illegal and made subjtct to similar punishment or re straint we must Infer that the evil aimed at was not the mere bigness of the ep terprise but it was the aggregation capital and plants with tho express or implied Intent to restrain interstate or foreign commerce or to monopolize It In whole or In part 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 commerce and trade A combination 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 o restrain trade are apparent from tho circumstances or are Expressly declared to be the object of the combination A mere Incidental re straint 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 violated The second condition ot 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 methods of securing a trado monopoly condemned In the second sectionIt 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 production 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 Investments of capital by others In such a profitable business Is sufficient lynear and otential to restrain them in the prices which they sell their prod uct But if ley attempt by a use of their preponder ag capital and by a sale of theIrjE g4iiternporariIy at unduly low P t out of business their U they attempt by ex with their patrons and M Jaling except upon such ther methods

phstlo as possible because I conceive stetrucUvethe loss of that great economy In produc effectadployment of large capital under one management I do not mean to say that there Is not a limit beyond which the economy of management by the enlargement 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 tions 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 desire to unite by purchase combination or otherwise all the plants In the country engaged d In the manufacture of a par ticular line of goods The idea was rife 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 ot 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 plate 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 tire concentration In the hands of a few of the absolute control of the prices of all manufactured products Refers to Sugar Trust Case The antltrust statute was passed In and prosecutions were soon begun under It In tho case of the United States vs Knight known as the sugar trust cue because of the narrow scope of the pleadings the combination sought to be 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 the refining of sugar and did not Include that of a direct and Intended re straint upon trade and commerce In the sale anj delivery of sugar across state boundaries and In foreign trade The result of the sugar trust case was not h ppyln that it gave other companies and combinations

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 the discretion to determine what Is a reason able restraint of trade The expression restraint of trade comes from tho common law and at common law there vrra certain covenants Incidental to the car rying out of a main or principal contract which were said to be covenants In partial restraint of trade and were held to be enforclblo 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 ca eB It would seem that even such Inc tal covenants In restraint of Interstu trade were within the In hibition of the statute and must be con demnedIn 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 crimination of the later decisions of the ourt however shows quite clearly In cases presenting the exact ques tion that such Incidental restraints of trade are held not to be within the law and are excluded by the general state ment that to be within the statute the effect upon the trade ot the restraint must bo direct and not merely Incidental 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 exist v some of the opinions of the federal judges there have been Intima IIn Having the effect If sound to the force of the statute by cluding within it absurdly unimportant combinations and arrangements and lug gesting therefore the wisdom of chang ing Its language by limiting Its appll tatlan to serious combinations with In tent to restrain competition or control prices A reading of tho opinions of the supreme court however makes the itiange unnecessary for they exclude from the operation of the act contracts 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 Deen 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 mid In reference to various subject mat ter 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 nnd 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 businesses have cherished a hope and a belief 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 combine tions may be permittedto organIze sup press 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 end by various acts utterly vlolatlve 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 tfieyv on t3 other hand be permitted under tbelaw carry on their business Now the public snd especially the business public ought to rid themselves of the idea that such a distinction Is pra tic at le or can introduced Into the stat tp Y Certainly ler the present antitrust w no suoistinctIon ejssr It has r1JXlt hcwever iat the word ofthethe court to say what Is a reasonable restraint of trade what Is a reasonable 8ujipresslonx competition what is a rea Isonabie monopoly I

to carry and to give them a power approaching arbitration the abuse of which might Involve our whole Judicial system In disaster An Aid to Business Virtue- In considering violations of the anti trust law we ought of course not to fogget that that law makes unlawful methods of carrying on business which before Its passage wore 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 results toward which they tended the concentration of Industrial power in the oppreselonwith many of the men who have used the methods condemned by the statute for the purpose of maintaining a prOfi- table business we may well facilitate a dolncbulneuback Into the zono 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 and in competition with foreign manufacturers our foreign trade has been neatlY 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 Unlawfuland that they must be restrained and punished until ended Asks National Corporation Law I therefore recommend the enactment provldlnaforgage In trade and commerce among the states and with foreign nations protect bytheso 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 stcck 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 ascer tamed under approval and supervision of federal authority after a full and con plete disclosure of all the facts pertain ing to the value of such property and Interest therein of the persons to theI It Is proposed to issusustock lit payment of such property U Should subject the real and personal property only of such corporations to the same taxation as Im posed by the states within which It may be situated upon other clmllar property located therein and It should require Ings and Trust Company that a great deal less sliver aside from the sub sidiary coins la In evidence than there was two or three years ago This is due in a great measure I think to the fact that the banks try to keep fresh new bills on hand and supply them to tb4 customers instead of the old ragged germ den paper money that people cften avoid just because it does not look as inviting People in this locality are askluforI more paper and less silver all the tintv It probably wont be long until a I 1 t 7 J such corporations to tile full And complete reports of their operations with the department of commerce and labor at regular Intervals Corporations organized under t lact should be prohibited from acquiring ami holding stock In other corporation except for special reasons upon approval by the proper federal author ity thus avoiding the creatlen under notional auspices of the holding company with subordinate corporations In different states which ha an effective agency in the creation of the great trusts and monopolies- If the 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 corporation te carry on a legitimate business throughout the United States The conflicting laws of the different states of the union with respect to for sign 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 states To the suggestion that this proposal ot federal incorporation for industrial com bination 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 Jhe doing of the wrongs which It Is the purpose of that law to prevent but only to foster a continuance and ad vance of the highest Industrial efficiency without permitting Industrial abuses Sure to Meet Opposition Such a national Incorporation law will be 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 wllltherefore propose Instead of It a sys tem of compulsory licenses for all fed eral corporations engaged in Interstate businessLet consider these objections In their order The government Is now trying to dissolve some of these combinations and It Js not the Intention of the government to desist in the least degree In Its effort to end these combinations which are today monopolizing the commerce of this country that where It appears that the acquisition and concentration of property go to the extent of creating a monopoly of substantially and directly restraining Interstate commerce It Is not the Intention of the government to permit this monopoly to exist under federal Incorporation or to transfer to the protecting wing of the federal government of a state corporation now violating the Sher man act But It Is not and should not be the policy of the government to prevent reasonable concentration of capital which Is necessary to the economic development of manufacture trade and corn mecca This country has shown powei of economic production that has aston- Ished the world and has enabled us to compete with foreign manufacturers In many markets It should be th care ot the government to permit such concentration of capital while keeping open the avenues of individual enterprise and the opportunity for a man or corporation withreasonable capital to engage In business If we would maintain our pment 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 lines of the law May Doubt Constitutionality SecondThere are those who doubt the constitutionality of such federal Incorpor allan The regulation ot interstate and foreign commerce Is certainly conferred in the fullest meuureupon 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 rehpect to companies doing an Interstate business and Interstate bridges The power of Incorporation has been e3ercised by congress and upheld by the supreme court In this regard Why then with respect to any other form o Interstate commerce like the sale ofoojs across state ndarles and Into coontrfesw jnflBydo a me power eqfactmerce that makes these great Industrial concerns subject to federal prosecution and control How far as Incidental to the carrying on of that commerce It maybe within the power of the federal gov ernment to authorize tile manufacturer of goods is perhaps more open to discus slot though a recent decision of the su preme court would seem to answer that question In the affirmative tven 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 at the expense of the power of the state It is a sufficient answer to this argument to say that no other method can b sug gested which offers federal protection on the one hand and close federal supervl slonon the other of these great organi rations that are In feet 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 would avail themselves of such a law because the burden of complete federal su certainlybethe Incorporation woiild not be accepted by an ordinary business concern The third objection that the worst offenders will not accept federal Incorporation Is easily answered The decrees of injunc tion recently adopted In prosecutions un der the antitrust law are so thorough and sweeping that the corporations af fected ty them have but three courses before tlem First they must resolve themselves Into their component parts In the differ Ont states with a consequent loss to themselves of capital and effective organ ization and to the country of concen trated energy and enterprise or second In defiance of the law and under some secret trust they must attempt to con tinue their business In violation of the federal statute and thus Incur the pen alties of contempt and bring on nn in evitable criminal prosecution of the indi viduals named In the decree and their associates cr Third they must reorganize and accept In good faith the federal charter I sug gest a federal compulsory license law urged aa a substitute for a federal moor poration law Is unnecessary except to reach that kind ot corporation which by virtue of the considerations already ad vanced will take advantage voluntarily of an Incorporation law while the other state corporations doing an Interstate business do not need the supervision or the regulation of federal license and would only be unnecessarily burdened therebyThe general at my suggestion has drafted a feVJeral Incorporation law embodying the views I have attempted to set forth and it will be at the disposi tion of the appropriate committees of congress WIIAIAU H TAFT The White House Jan 7 1910 a sliver dollar will be as strange a sight in Cleveland as it Is in New

should be treated as they hind treated Quelala and dropped In the river But my grandfather pleaded hard for he knew the monkeys would drown In tho river with their wings tied and Quelala said a kind word for them also so that Gayeletto finally spared them on condition that the Winged Monkeys should ever after do three times the bidding of the owner of the golden cap The cap had been made for a wedding present to Quelala and It is said to have cost the princess half her kingdom Of course my grand father and all the other monkeys at once agreed to the condition and that is how it happens that

reelected prison commissioners for a term of four years cachoTho Joint session was held in tho house chamber One of the chief matters that came up in both the house and senate was a communication bearing tho signatures of State Auditor James and Stato Treasurer Frley In this communi cation it was stated that there was a cash balance in the trea3ury of only J 14155889 and that this belongs to tho school fund for tho payment of teachers It was further stated in tho communication that in order to pay tho legislators their mileage and otherS amounts due each it would be sary to take tho money from the school fund A request was made in the com munication that committees be ap l amintedlook into the condition of the stateS treasury and recommend a which the situation may be relieved

county judges of counties having a city of the first class to appoint a genral commissioner aidcThe act nrovldes for the appoint ment of a general commissioner at an annual salary not to exceed 3000 to be paid by the county It is drawn very much like the act which waS passed In 1906 empowering the court of appeals of Kentucky to appoint a commissioner of appeals which act was for the purpose of giving relief to the court of appeals as the Kentucky constitution provides that there shall not be more than seven Judges of the court of appeals The constitution does not provide that there shall be more than one county judge and It would very probably be unconstitution al for the legislature to provide for more than one The bill introduced by Senator New comb in no way contravenes the pro- visIons of the constitution and gives the county judge of counties having a city of the first class of which the county of Jefferson is the only one much needed relief The statutes of Kentucky impose upon the county judge duties which are many in num ben and varied in character he being a kind of catch basin for the troubles of the county It is admitted by all who are informed upon the subject that the county Judge of Jeffefeon county It he does his work is by far the busiest Judge in the state His du ties are not only judicial but partaka of the legislative and executive Ho sits as judge in four courts the Jo venue county quarterly and fiscal While the general commissioner as provided in the act will not be au thorized to sit as Jtidgoln any of these courts or enter any orders he will
