chot's accusation of the Secretary
WASHINGTON, D.,C, Jan. 7.
President Taft's special message
dealing; with -amendments to tho in

to Congress today.
The President advises legislation
that will require corporations doing
an interstate business to secure a
Federal charter, and the establish
ment of a Court o'f Commerce to de
termine interstate Appeals. 'His plan
calls for Federal supervision of rail
road rates, stock issues, pooling
ecreements and freight classifica
tion. He believes that no road
should be allowed to acquire the
ownership of a competing road un
let!) it already owns half of the

New propositions galore are bulg

centering about Texas and Mexico
and Central America. "Should theso
