SAYS 200 CONCERNS OWN THE
BIGGEST SHARE OF U.S.
Atlantic City, N. J., Oct. 31. That
200 corporations, owning $22,500,
000,000) have come into existence in
the past fifteen years, which means
that two hundred "artificial persons'
one-ten-thousandth of one per cent
of the natural persons of this coun
try, own three times as much wealth
as the entire country owned in 1850,
was the declaration of the new com
missioner of corporations, Joseph B.
Davies, addressing the National As
sociation of Hardware Mfrs.
"The program of the next session
of congress will deal largely with
trust questions," Davies said, "but
whether it will advocate destruction
or control of monopoly will rest with
the determination of the question,
"Does monopoly or competition af
ford the fairest, best system for all
Answering claims that it is impos

"Because a condition .exists is hot
conclusive vthat it is the result of
fundamental natural and economic
laws. Civilization would be a lie, if,
after bringing these institutions into
being, it could not deflect their power
so they would not become a Franken
stein to destroy the liberties of men."
AGAINST STINGY ONES
Members of the Women's Taxpay
ers League in Detroit, Mich., are go
ing to organize against stingy hus
bands. They claim that an empty
pocketbook disrupts the home. Then
comes a judge and renders a decision
to the- effect that carfare and tobacco
money is enough for any man to car
ry. Thus is man's "authority" taken
from him, bit by bit.
But, perhaps, for some men car
fare and tobacco money is enough
and, with that daily allowance in his
pocket, he will be less liable to join
the ranks of the "good fellows."
There are thousands of men who owe,
their success to the financial man
agement of a thrifty wife and if the
reduced-allowance of the provider re
sults in the steady growth of the sav
ings bank account, it would no doubt
be a good thing for many who throw
their money away foolishly.
WADE'S GOT A BACKBONE
Municipal Judge Wade is a very
reckless' man. For he has had the
nerve to flaunt Big Business and the
trust press by announcing from the
bench that he was in favor" of union
The case was the trial of Elmer L.
Hitt, business agent of the Painters'
District Council. He had been arrest
ed on complaint of non-union men.
It was the old cry-of non-union labor
and trades unionism. After hearing
a few opening remarks, Judge Wade
refused to try the case.
-"All my sympathies are with union
labor," said, the judge, "and I have
no sympathy for non-union men. I
believe a man has no right to work
at non-union wageB in this country.

got pondering over the little strength
of their case and dropped it.
Judge Wade's frankness was re
warded by knocks from trust press.
