WHAT TAFT'S NEXT MESSAEG
It Is stated upon excellent author
ity that prominent among the sug
gestions for legislation to bo made
by President Taft In his forthcoming
message to congress will bo tho following:
First To authorlzo the interstate
commerce commission to Institute In
quiry relaUvo to Interstate commcrco
matters and to fix rates on Its own
Initiative instead of limiting Its func
tions to tho making of rates only af
ter complaint has been mado.
Second To require interstato rail
roads to furnish written statements
of rates In forco when so requested
Third To require railroads to al
lor Interstato shippers of freight to
quote their own freight over connect
Fourth To vest the Interstato com
merce commission with power to
chango freight rate classification as
well as rates.
Fifth Federal control over stock
Issues so that rallwny companies or
corporations will not bo allowed to
lssuo stocks and bonds unUl after
they have mado application to tho In
terstate commerce commission, so
that tho government may know for
what purpose stocks and bonds are
issued, the uses to which they aro to
bo put, and to seo that these issues
aro for legitimate and useful purpos
es other than for manlpulaUon; also.
to cnablo tho commission to bear
theso facts In mind when detcrrnln
lng tho earning power and other fac
tors connected with tho establishment
Sixth To vest tho commission with
power to proveut Interstate railroads
from puchaslng stock control of own
ershlp in compotlng lines.
Seventh To creato an Interstato
commerce court of probably G mem
bers to sit in Washington as a special
tribunnl to consider appeals from do
clslons and tho rates mado by the
commission, this court to bring nbout
ultimately the evolution of an inter
state commerco codo and uniform
Eighth To so amend thu law ns
to eliminate certain methods that
havo been in vogue for crantlnir nf
rebates, especially those based on en
larged, or flcUtious claims for dam
Ninth-rTo write nrovislon fntn ih
law to bring about tho enforcemont nf
tho so-called "lone and short hmii
clause" so amending the law as to
lomia tbe charging of more for a
short than for a long haul over the
samo line or route
Tenth Tho creation of somo form
of commission, or possibly a subdi
vision under tho control of the com-
mission, for tho purpose of bringing
anout the simplification of rate mak
ing sheets, which aro now so com-
plex that many of the railroad-men
tnemselves do not understand them.
Eleventh To change tho law so
as to make tho granting of rebates
a separate offense for each shipment.
Rather than havo them go before a
congressional committee and mako
war on the proposed amendments to
the interstato commerce laws, Presi
dent Taft is consulting various big
railway chloftans with a view to net-
Ung their endorsement of tho plans.
He has already had conferences with
James J. Hill of the Great Northern,
W. C. Brown of the New York Cen-
tral and Edward P. Ripley of tho
The president believes that ho can
havo tho railroad managers friendly
to his program, he can get tho war
ring factions in congress united upon
it and can havo it put through at
tho coming session.
Mr. Drown is now sounding railroad
men and endeavoring to get thorn to
agree on a program of legislation
nlong lines favored by tho president.
The chief featuro of the president's
program to which tho railroads ralso
objection is tho proposal to prevent
a road from owning stock in a com
