Carlin's Anti-Trust Speech
Is a Campaign Document
Virginian's Masterly Address,
Drowned Out by Roosevejt's
"River of Doubt" Talk, Res
cued From the Record.
By THEODORE TILLER.
On May 28, 1914. late in the afternoon,
Congressman Charles Crelghton Carlln,
of Alexandria, Va., arose In the House
of Representatives and, as one of the
three members who had framed the
Administration's principal anti-trust
bill, delivered a masterly speech in x
planalon of that measure.
Ou Jay J6, 1311. at night. CoL Theo
dore Roosevelt, former President, ex-
Dlorer. author, and naturalist, faced a
biff audience under the auspices of the
National Gee graphic Society and related
tho story of his trials in the Jungles of
South Amtrica. It was the "River of
Dcubt night" in Washington, and at
least passing interest was taken in the
colonel's story throughout the United
States, England, Brazil, and other coun
tries. The papers next day contained col
umns about the "River of Doubt," lost
canoes. Jungle fever, and red-headed
South American Indians. The aforesaid
papers mentioned in a Congress sum
mary, stuck in hurriedly about press
time, that "the House continued debate
on the anti-trust bill. Mr. Carlln and
Hence this Btory. Mr. Carlln really
delivered an important speech. He sim
ply ricked a bad time to make it. fort
since the discoveries of the colonel had
been challenged by certain Britishers,
and the colonel had Just arrived home,
and there was considerable speculation
as to -whether the Jungle fever would
prevent h'ra from running for President
in 1916 well, the colonel Just had the
call on the news.
Carlin Didn't Mind It
The fact that little of Mr. Carlin's
speech found its way into the news
paper columns is no reflection on the
House speechmaker. It will be used as
a campaign document by the Demo
cratic party when the campaigns are
on, and it Is undoubtedly a valuable
contribution to the Congressional Rec
ord, that usually dry publication, so
the Virginia "trust buster" did nt and
should not feel cast down.
However, it Is now proper, since the
colonel grabbed the front page space en
the night in question, that Washington,
Alexandria, and the remainder of the
country should know something about
"Charlie" Carlln. He doesn't blow his
own horn: he'd probably starve to death
aa an advertising agent, but he has
"arrived" In the field of natloral poll
tics, and he won't be checked Just
because the House show ran counter to
the colonel's narrative of his South
The morning after the Carlln rpeech
and the Roosevelt lecture, a sympathetic
newspaper friend sought out the Con
gressman and said:
"Sorry we couldn't carry but a line
of that speech of yours last night, but
we were Jammed.
"Sure." said Carlln. "I knew It would
be that way, but I had to close the
debate for our side. What could I ex
pect with T. R. and his charts of the
'River of Doubt' In town?"
That's all he has ever said about It,
although he started off that Breech by
saying that for six months he hud prac
tically been with the Administration's
trust bill night and day.
The statement Is literally true. When
the Administration leaders determined
that there should be anti-trust legisla
tion at this session of Congress, some
body had to do the work.
Carlln Worked Hard.
The preparation of the bill fell to the
House Judiciary Committee. Jtanifest
Jy the entire committee couldn't make
headway with twenty-one members;
mulling over details, important and un
important. The Democratic majority
named a subcommittee consisting' of
Chairman Henry D. Clayton, Charles
C. Carlln. and John C Floyd. All
three did hard work, but It Is not un
fair to say that probably "Charlie" Car
lln had to bear the brunt of the toll.
Chairman Clayton was slightly 111

When Congressman John V. Rixey
died, in 1907. Mr. Carlln defeated nine
candidates in the primary race. Three
remained for the finish and went down
to defeat; the others dropped out as
their chances lessened during the cam
paign. Two years later he defeated a
Democratic opponent for the romlna
tton, and has had no opposition within
the party since. The Republican oppo

been formidable, and Carlln probably,

Since entering Congress, Mr. Carlin

drawback to his Job his district Is so
near the Capitol that his consitutents
may drop in at any time. Of course,
there are not Jobs enough for every
body in the Carlln district who desires
one, and this worries Carlln. who'd like
to provide for every constituent who
calls on him. ., ,
While, as has been said, Mr. Carlln Is
a stanch friend of the District, there Is
one bit of proposed Dlrtriet legislation
which he always loudly opposes. When
It is suggested that the garbage of tho
National Capital be towed down the
river and deposited in the Carlln dis
trict, the Virginia member arises indig
nantly and declares that he'll never
