A PERILOUS SITUATION.
In these, latest years, as In the most remote, we

other things, to combinations of capital and labor
on a scale and with a power never before wit
nessed. They have opened the way to accumula
tions of wealth in masses beyond the dreams of
avarice and never before contemplated by men.
The social and political problems thus created
are wholly new. It is a fallacy to suppose that
because the elements, are old the problem itself
must, therefore, differ only in degree from those
which have gone before. The elements may be old.
but the problem presented by a change in the
proportion of the elements may be, and In this
case is. entirely new.
Great Individual fortunes and rich men are. it
is true, as old as recorded history. Nearly two
thousand years ago the tax farmers of Rome
formed a ""trust" for their own profit and protec
tion; the English people three centuries ago re
volted against the patents and monopolies granted
by Elizabeth and James to their courtiers, and
monopolists, forestallers and speculators In the
necessities of life, were a curse in our Revolution
and were bitterly denounced by Washington. Yet
it is none the less true that the same things to
day present questions different in kind as well as
In degree from their predecessors.'
It is> the huge size of private fortunes, the vast
extent and power of modern combinations of capi
tal, made possible by present conditions, which
have brought upon us in these later years prob
lems portentous in their possibilities, and threat
ening not only our social and political welfare but
even our personal freedom if they are not boldly
met and wisely solved.
The great />ody of the American people, neither
very rich nor very poor; the honest, the thrifty,
t ho" hard working, the men and women who earn
and save, have no base envy, no fanatic hatred of
wealth, whether Individual or corporate, if it has
boen honestly gained and is wisely and generously
employed with a sense of responsibility to the pub
lic. But this great body of our people, by habit
and instinct alike wisely conservative — those
people, who are the bone and sinew of our country
and upon whom its fortunes and its safety rest — be
gan to observe 'with deep alarm the recent mini
festations of the new economic conditions. More
and move they came to believe that these vast
fortunes and these huge combinations of capital
were formed and built up by tdrtuous and dis
honest means and through a cynical disregard of
the very laws which the mass of the people were
compelled M obey. They began to fear that polit
ical power was being reft from their hands and put
into the possession of the money holders; that their
dearest rights were in danger, and that their hopes
of success and advancement were cut off by busi
ness methods which they could not understand, but
by which the individual was sacrificed and held
To those who looked beneath the surface an omi
nous unrest was apparent. The violent counsels of
violent men who aimed at the destruction of prop
erty and the overthrow of law began to be heard
and hearkened to. The great order loving. Indus
trious masses of the American people turned away
from these advocates of violence, but at the same
time demanded that their government should Rive
them, in lawful and reasonable ways, the protec
tion to which they were entitled against the dan
gers they justly apprehended.
DEMAND UNFLINCHINGLY MET.
The great duty of fulfilling these righteous de
mands, like all the great public services of the last
half century, was imposed upon the Republican
party, an« they have not flinched from the burden.
Under the lead of the President, the Republican
party lias grappled with the new problems, born M
Ihe new conditions. It has been no light task.
Dangerous extremes threatened on either hand. On
the one side were the radicals of reaction, who re
sisted any change at all; on the other side were
the radicals of destruction, who wished to change
everything. These two forms of radicalism are us
l^r apart at the outset as the poles, but. when
carried out. they lead alike to revolution. Between
these two extremes the Republican President and
the Republican Congress were compelled to steer,
and while they advanced steadily, soberly and ef
fectively, they were obliged to repel the radical
assaults on either hand.
Yet. notwithstanding all these difficulties, much
has been accomplished. The response of the people
to the policies urged by the President has been so
emphatic 'that it has been made clear, once for all.
that the government of the United States is never
to be dominated by money and financial interests,
and that the political party which permits itself to
be ruled by them is thereby doomed to defeat.
The policy of the Republican party in dealing
with these rew and formidable questions which
have taken concrete form in enormous combina
tions of capital and In great public service corpora
tions has been formulated and determined. That
policy is to use government regulation and super
vision for the control of corporations and combina
tions so that these great and necessary instruments
of commerce and business may be preserved as
useful servants and not destroyed because they
have threatened to become dangerous masters.
This policy Is the absolute opposite of govern
ment ownership and all like measures advocated
by our opponents which tend directly to socialism
and to all its attendant miseries and evils.
OLD LAWS ENFORCED; NEW ONES ENACTED
It is in pursuance of this policy, shaped and set
tled during the last few year.", that old laws have
been enforced and new ones enacted.
Nothing is more destructive to the respect for
law— the chief bulwark of civilized society— than to
place laws upon the statute book in order merely
to still public clamor and satisfy the people, but
which it is never Intended to enforce. The worst
laws imaginable are those which are allowed to
rust unused because if enforced they might inter
fere with vested abuses or curb the rich and
The President lias enforced the laws as hp found
them on the statute book. For this performance of
hie sworn duty he has been bitterly attacked, It
was to be Kpeicted. Vested abuses and profitable
wrongs cry out. loudly when their Intrenchments
are carried. and some one is sure to be hurt when

greatest and most conspicuous qualities, upon
which no shadow has ever been caat. That man
is no friend of Theodore Roosevelt and does not
cherish his name and fame who now. from any
motive. seeks to urge him as a candidate rt for the
great office which he has finally declined. The
President has refused what his countrymen would
gladly have given him; he SHys what he n eai s
and means what he says, and his party and hs
country will respect his wishes as they honor ins
high character and great public service. _ .
But. although the President retires, he leaves his
policies behind him. To those policies the Repub

as we have begun, regardless alike of the radicals
of reaction and the radicals of revolution "We
must hold fast to that which is good while v,e

TAFT FAVORITE AMONG THE BROKERS.
Betting on the outcome of the Republican con
vention began in Wall Street yesterday. The
wagers were mostly in small amounts, as no one
seemed inclined to take large offers. One Stock
Exchange firm reported the following offers, for
which, however, there were no takers: $5,000 to
125.000 that President Roosevelt would be re
nominated; J5.000 even that he would accept. If
nominated, and $5,000 to $10,000 that, if he was
nominated and he accepted, he would be defeated.
Under the rules of the Stock Exchange betting
Is prohibited on the floor and if any wagers
were made there it was done privately. In the
brokerage offices, however, many men were found
yesterday who were willing to make email bets
on the convention, although most of them did not
want their names mentioned. Taft was the odda
on favorite as the choice of the convention
among the brokers., and a considerable amount
in small sums was wagered on his chan.es.
SAYS GUILD WOULD GET MOST VOTES.
' Declaring that Governor Curtis Guild, jr., was the
strongest candidate the Republicans could name for
Vice-President. N". Behar, managing director of the
National Liberal Immigration League, predicted
yesterday that his choice at Chicago would line
up behind the party every one of the many large
classes of persons with which this organization was
associated. As a pioneer and patron in the move
ment toward a beneficial solution of the immi
gration problem, he declared, the Governor of
Massachusetts was at present known and appre
< lated from one end of the country to the other.
Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius N. Bliss, Bishop Pot

Charles W. Eliot .ire some of those associated
with Mr. Behar in this organization for the proper

Westchester Railroad Company
Fails to Heed P. S. C. Order.
Failure of the New York and Port Chester Bali
road Company to comply with an order of the Pub
lic Service Commission to Inform that body by June
12 as to what extent and in what manner the com
pany had complied with the conditions of Its fran
chise has caused the commission to decide on a
thorough investigation of that company. The in
vestigation, -.-hlch will begin on Monday before
Commissioner Kustls, will be most thorough and la
expected to develop some interesting detail* re
garding the flght between the Port Chester and
th» New York. Westchester & Boston, and the
way in which both companies came into the con
trol of the Millbrook company, which since has
come into possession of the New York, New Haven
& Hartford Railroad.
On May 5 the Board of Aldermen, reciting the
terms of the franchise granted to the Port Chester
on or about May 31. 1906. one of the terms of which
was that $800,000 should be spent in construction
work within the city limits within a period of two
years, asked the Public Service Commission to re
quest the company to state what had been done to
comply with these conditions.
Nothing further was heard from the company un
til June 15. three days after they should have pre
sented the required Information. Thea Edward M.
Grout and John J. Delany. counsel for the com
pany, wrote the commission that the Board of Esti
mate' had extended the time for the company to
comply with the conditions of its franchise to June
26 and adding: "We presume that this will for th»
present and until the Board of Estimate has dis
posed of the matter meet the requirements of your
George S. Coleman, the regular counsel of the
commission, will have charge of th« Port Chester
hearings. ■ - .^.rtlytiii
FOR RAPID TRANSIT, $25,000!
This Sum, at Least, Mr. Metz Must Hand
Over to the Public Service Commission.
For some months there has been a dispute be
tween the Public Service Commission and Con
troller Metz as to whether the money obtained
from the sale of buildings at Centre and Walker
streets, the purchase of which was necessitated
by the subway loop, should be turned over to the
sinking fund commission or used for other rapid
transit purposes. Yesterday the Sinking P'und
Commission, at a special meeting, received an opin
ion from the Corporation Counsel that according
to the rapiti transit act ftll such moneys must be
us«-<l for rapid transit purposes.
The entire amount to be received from the build
ings will not be more than 525.000, but the disposi
tion of the money will entabrish a precedent which
In the future may control the disposition of millions
Controller Metz contended that the money should
go into the general fund, which is used for the re
duction of the tax rate. When he was asked about
the opinion yesterday h«> declared that an agree
ment had been made with the Public Service Com
mission whereby the money would go to the gen
eral fund. This was denied at the offices of the
commission, where it was stated that the money
would go into tli« hand* «'f the <"ity Chamberlain
until the commission decided whether or not it
wished to purchase additional real estate with it.
In case such DM fs not made of Jt Uie commission
may consent to the moneys going to that part of
the sinking fund which is tjsed for the retirement
of rapid transit bonds. This, it is believed, would
be clearly within the provision* of the law.
