WAPMtNnTov. Pec. 7. ruhtlo hearing"
Wilt begin Tuesday before the House .Tu
dlel.iry Committee on bills proposing sup
plementary nntl-trust legislation.
While these hearings are to ho held
as n matter of form, Democratic lead
ers frankly acknowledge that no serious,
effort will he made to frame a programme
pf antl-triiKt legislation until the Presi
dent communicates his views to Con
irress. ruithermore. It Is dally becoming more
pparent that the legislation will he only
tieh hr the President desires and that
thin will he well within the conservative
lines laid down hy Mr. Vll?on In tils
Annual address to Congress.
Hvldence Is accumulating here that the.
Administration Is awakening rapidly In
the danger of further radical agitation
t this time and that every effort will
be marin In the Immediate future to allay
Mrnistp In .Innniir-r.
The President's special message on anti
trust legislation probably will not be for
warded to Congress until the first week
Meantime Chairman Clayton and his
Democratic associates will discuss the
question with the President. A conference
has been arranged for Wednesday
In which the President will be Joined

TiikntmK, N .1., Dec. 7 White Presi
dent Wilson's corporation measures,
known as the Seven Sisters, were pending
before the New Jersey UeKlslatUle last
wittier, it was s.ild on the Moor of the
Senate that no serious effort would ever I
be made to enforce their miner drastic!
provisions. This was one of the niguinenls
advanced to overcome the opposition
which It w us feared the bills would arouse
amoiiK the business Inteiests of the State,
and particularly upon eorpoiatlons opcr
tiling under New Jersey i barters.
The Seven Sisters have been in opera
tion foi neiii ly ten months, and thus far
there has been nothing to Indicate that
the piophccv made In the Senate was In
ncctrate. Not a hand, official, rotpor
nte or private, has been raised against
any corporation for violating any of the
provisions of the seven acts, whose strict
enforcement would admittedly create a
sci ions disturbance in business.
How fur the Seven Sisters have ac
tual! controlled the Internal affairs of
New". lei se i orporatloiis Is doubtful. The
Standard till Company, for example, was
not lone In dis-nv etiug a provision In the
laws whl( b compelled It to raise the pi Ice
of Its pieslurts by adding the cost of
transportation to points at a distance
from the plan- of manufacture This was
(lone ostensibly to avoid illsci imlliatioli.
Oilier t orpor.nlons. however,- which en
tried into contracts with their distribut
ing agencies to sustain flv'cd prices for
their commodities- have ontintled to do
so without intei riipllon. although In di
rect violation of the news law.
.lrrr Kind to Corporations.
Ill this connection It Is mi Ititei .-.-i Iiik

son and that was the last of his flKhl
niMlnst the l-cef trust. The Uovernor was
lliaiicurateil President, but his decision
on the extradition of the "le-ef barons"
w-ns never Riven, it remained as a matter
of unfinished business In the administra
tion of State affairs.
The practical Usui! of the passage of
the Seven Slsteis has been feU only by the
State itself, ,nid that thioiiKn a cbpb-tcd
tr-fiit .Vlaiiv eorpoiatlons fearful of
the op-ration of the tu-w laws have "ought
tlnlr chattel t elsewhere, and a number
of romp. inn's fonio-d In tills Stale have
a'l.indcuied their ch.trteig mid lncorsi
ratnl In other Slates
This Is Indicated to mni' extent bv the
fact that at the close of the liscyl ear.
October 31. 1. 1st til" lerelpts of the Seeie-
tar of State's office, instead of the ens.
totuary inrua-e from iorpor.it ion fees,

' f onccirniiiR the statement that an ar

"It Is true that New Jersey has never
pin sued Its corporations for violafions of
their charter rights. Hut all that was
under the old corporation laws and the
leason was that those laws were so broad
that the corporations couldn't posslblv

Andrew J. Volstead of Minnesota, rank-

a statement to-day In which he attacked
the constitutionality of the pioposal of

Such a law, In the opinion of Mr. Vol

gress might pass a law patterned after
President Wilson's i econimendatlnn, but 1
he declared that "no Slate would be bound
to obey or rccognlsf
As the question of the constitution
ality of the proposed primary law may be
passed upon by the Judicial Committee,
Mr Volslead's opinion lias an Inteiestlnc
significance. He said:
"hi my opinion such a law would be as
subversive of constitutional privileges as
a law that would propose the abolition of
lln lllcctoral College without first annull
ing the IVdeial Constitution."
Mr. Volstead liases his conclusion on
I that clause of the Constitution which de-
dares that "c:n h State shall appoint In
