To-day -I wish to ?peak to you on the sub
ject or group of subjects which we mean when
,we talk of the trusts. The word Is u.«ed very
loosely and almost always ivlth technical In
accuracy. But the average man when - he
speaks of the trusts means lather vaguely all
of the very, big corporation's, the growth of

ern times, and especially those big corpora
¦t'on* which, though organized in' one State,
,do business in several States, and some of
Jwnich have a tendency ,to mono-oolize. This
iwhole subject of the trusts Is of vital concern
to us. because it. presents one and perhaps th-3
most con»plcuou3 of the many problems forced

;AS TO PUNITIVE TARIFF.
A remedy much advocated at the moment is
to talie off the tariff from all articles which
are made by trusts. To do this It will be nec
essary ' first ' to define trusts. The language
commonly used by the advocates of this method
Implies -.that they mean all articles made by
lafrge; corporations, and that the changes in
tariff >are'.'to"ba made with punitive latent
.toward these large corporations. Of course, it
the* t&Mft *ls to be changed In order to punish
them, it -Hhould be changed so as to punish
those, that 'do 111, not merely flioss that are
prosperous. '¦ It would neither be Just nor expe
dient. - '«tt>,- cuniah the big corporations
as big. -, N . corporations: what we wish
to do-rts J to protect the people from any
evil that may grow cut of their existence or
maladministration. Some of these corporations
do well' and others do 111. If In any case the
tariff is -found to foster a monopoly which
does 111... why. of course, no protectionist would
object tb a modification of the tariff sufficient
to remedy tfcer evU. But In very few cases does
the so-called trust really monooollze the mar
ket/ 'Tuke'- any very big corporation whlca
controls «ay over half the products
Of a glyeo .industry. Surely In rearranging the
schedules affecting such a btg corooration It
would b« necessary to consider the interests of
Its smaller competitors which control the re
maining and which, being weaker, would suf
fer most from any tariff designed to punish all
producers; for,, of course, the tariff must be
made light or heavy for big- and little pro
ducers .' alike. Moreover, tuch a corporation
necessarily employs very many thousands ot
workmen.- and the minute we nroceeded from
denunciation to action It would be necessary
to consider the Interests of these workmen.
Furthermore, the nroducu of many trusts are
unprotected .and would be entirely unaffected
by any chance. in the tariff, or at most very
slightly so. "The Standard Oil Company offers
a.caee In- politf:' and the corporations which
control the anthracite coal output offer another
—for-, there is no duty whatever on anthracite
?¦*££' ¦ ' * ' am • not discussing the question of
tariff as such, whether from the standpoint of
the fundamental difference ¦ between those who
believe In a srotective- tariff and those who be
lieve in. free trade... or from the standpoint of
those; -who. whije they believe in a protective
taxl.t.' -feel- that i there could be a rearrange
ment of our schedules, either by direct legisla
tion or -by reciprocity treaties, which would re
sult tn. enlarging our markets; nor yet from
the. standpoint of those who feel that stability
Of economic policy la at the moment our prime
economic need and that the benefits to be de
rived from any change in schedules would not
compensate for the damage to business caused
by the ; widespread agitation which would fol
low any attempted general revision of the tar
iff at this moment. Without regard to the wis
dom of any one of those three positions. It re
mains true that the evils connected with the
trusts cannot be damaged" by depriving them
of. the benefits of a protective tariff, only on

ADVOCATES EVOLUTION.
In dealing with the big corporations we In
tend, to proceed not by revolution, but by evo
lution. We wish to face the facts, declining
to have our Vision blinded by the- folly of those
who say there are no evils, or' by. the more dan
gerous folly of those who either see or make
believe that they see nothing but evil in all
the existing system, and. who If given their
way would destroy the evil by. the simple pro
cess of bringing ruin and disaster to the entire
country. The evils • attendant upon over
capitalization alone are In my Judgment suffi
cient to warrant a far closer eupervlslon and
control then now exist over the great corpora
tions. Wherever a substantial monopoly can
be shown to exist we should -certainly try our
utmost to devise an expedient by which it can
b<9 controlled. Doubtless some of the evils ex
isting In or because . of the ' great corporations
cannot be cured by any legislation which has
¦ yet been proposed, and doubtless others,
which have really been incident to the sudden
development In the formation of corporations
of all kinds, will in the end cure themselves.
But others will remain that can be cured If we
only set about- curing them' with sanity. The
eurest way to prevent the possibility of curing
any of the evils Is to approach the subject in
a spirit of .violent ranco*. , complicated with
total Ignorance of business conditions and o*
fundamental Incapacity or . unwillingness : to
understand the limitations on the power of all
law-making bodies,' • No problem, and least of
all so. difficult a problem as. this, , can . he
solved if the qualities brought to Its solution
are panic. | fear, envy, • hatred and ignorance.-
Whenever great social or industrial changes
"take place, no matter how much good there
may be to them, there Is sure to be some evil,
and it usually takes mankind a number of
years -and a good deal of experimenting before
it finds the right way in which, so far as pos
sible, to control the new evil without at the
same time nullifying the new good. In these
circumstances the effort to bring new tenden
cie3 to a standstill is always futile and gen
erally mischievous; but it is possible somewhat
to develop them aright. Law can to a degree
guide, protect and control industrial develop
ment, but It can never cause it or play more
than a subordinate part in its healthy develop
ment — and unfortunately it is easy enough' by
bad laws to bring It to an' almost complete
stop. - The homely simile of what can be done
with a great river Is far from s Inaccurate. Th»
Lower Mississippi fertilizes a great country and
also at times ravages it by -floods. To at
tempt to dam It In order- to stop these floods
would be futile, and even If not futile would
be harmful. But- It is entirely feasible to build
a system of levees by which, these, floods shall
be largely controlled, i The levees take time
and trouble to make and to keep in order, and
they do. not- by any. means avert all mischief.
Yet they do accomplish much good, and they
offer- the only method of accomplishing any
good. The only way In which to build them or
to exercise control over the current is by thor
oughly examining into the facts 'In the first
place, and In the second, place by proceeding in
a epirit of combined sanity and. resolution,
avoiding above all things every form of hyste
ria, panic and blind rage, ¦ and not expecting
the Impossible either in time or achievement.
Incidentally It is also necessary to beware of
the type of excellent person who insists that
floods do good and not harm, and that in any
event the effort to control them will doubtless
somewhere interfere with the water supply and
damage the Mississippi Klver.
CANNOT DAM FLOOD.
Ing theMasf half century, in nil civilized coun
tries, and notably in our own. Many factor
have occurred In bringing these changed Indus,
trial conditions. Of these steam and electricity
are the chief. .- The extraordinary change- In -the
methods of transportation of merchandise and
of transmission, of intelligence has rendered
not only possible, but Inevitable, the immense
increase- In tfce rate of growth of Industrial
centers— that* is. in the great cities. Hence has
resulted the specialization of Industries and the
unexampled opportunities offered for the em
ployment'of huge amounts of capital and there
fore for the rise In the business world of those
master minds through which alone it is pos
sible for such vast sums of capital to be em
ployed with profit. Now It matters very lltttle
whether or not we like these new conditions,
the creation of these new opportunities. Man j
admirable qualities Vhlch were i developed in
the older, sl/npler. less progressive life have
to some degree atrophied under the conditions
of our rather feverish, high pressure, complex
and specialized life of, to-day. But our like*
and dislikes have very little to do with the
matter. The- new conditions are .here. They
have produced both good and evil. We cannot
get rid of them — even if It were not undesirable
to get rid of them; and our Instant duty Is to
try to aosommodate. our social, economic and
legislative life to them, and to frame a sys
tem of law and conduct under which we shall
get' out of them the utmost possible benefit and
the 'least amount of harm. It is foolish to
pride oUrselvc-s on our marvelous progress and
prosperity, upon our commanding position in
the international world and at tha name time
have nothing but denunciations for the men to
whose commanding business ability. we in part
owe this very progress and prosperity, this
commanding position. , — ... ',

-r Thl* -point is very important, .and-, lfc Is de
sirable . to. avoid , any willful jnlsuiiaer-
Btandirig. I am not now considering whether
or not, on grounds totally unconnected' with,
the tniqts. It Would- be well to lower taa duties
on various schedules, either - by direct legisla
> tlon. . or by legislation or treaties designed to
secure as an offset reciprocal advantages from,
the nations with which we trade. My point la
that changes in the tariff would have little
appreciable effect' on the trusts save as they
shared in the ¦ general harm or good proceeding
from such ' changes.- . No tariff - chang» would
help one of our smaller corporations -or one of
our private Individuals In business, still less
one- of our wage-workers, as against, a largs
corporation in the same business; on the con
trary, if it bore heavily on the large corpora
tion it would Inevitably be felt still more by
that corporation'a, weaker rivals, while any in
jurious result would of necessity be shared by
both the ' employer and employed in the busi
ness concerned. The Immediate. Introduction
of 1 substantial free trade In ail articles manu
factured? by trusts would not affect some of
tha- most powerful of our business combina
tions in the least save by the damage, dona t»
the general business welfare of the country;
others would undoubtedly be seriously, affected,
but much less sa than .their weaker rivals,
while the loss would be' divided between tha
capitalists and the laborers; and after ths
years' of panic and distress had been lived
through and some return to- prosperity had oc
curred.- even though all were on a lower plans
of . prosperity tthan before, the relative differ
ence between the trusts and their rivals would
remain as marked as ever. In other words, tha
trust or big corporation would have suffered
relatively to and In the aid of Its foreign com
petitors; but Its relative position toward Its
American , competitors would probably ba Im
proved; little would hayfe been don» toward
cutting out or minlmizihs; the evll» la tb»
trusts; nothing toward securing adequate con
trol and regulation or tha large modern cor
porations.
In other words,"} the"- question of rwalatliis
the trusts with a view to minimizing or abol
ishing the evils existent In them is separata
and apart from the question of tariff revision.

. WASHINGTON, Sept. 20.— Lieutenant
Kenneth P. Williams, First Infantry, has
been recommended' by General Chaff ee for
a Congressional medal of honor for his
skill and bravery in leading the detach
ment to the rescue of the marine detach
ment which completed the now famous
march- across Samar. -A noteworthy por
tlon of General Chaffee's letter reads as
fellows: . •
"Not again in your military career nor
in that of the men accompanying you on
this arduous undertaking will conditions
likely arise that will tender you the op
portunity of rendering such. unheard of
and never-to-be-forgotten services to your
country, which entitles you to greater
thanks and to the nation's gratitude."
Rear Admiral Rodger's letter stated
that "The marine detachment would un
doubtedly have perished to a man had it
not been for the Indefatigable exertions
of Lieutenant Kenneth P. Williams.

Finally, 1 a law declaring that any. one
who employed a Jew should also employ
no less than two Roumanians and this
restriction was prohibitive of Jewish la
bor in the small establishments. Alto
gether the working, of these laws, as re»
cited in Secretary Hay's circular note,
was to deprive the Jews in Roumanla of
nearly all opportunity to earn an honest
living and find honorable employment.
These facts will doubtless be enlarged
upon if the Roumanian Government un
dertakes to impeach the statements con
tained in. the Jewish note.
While the, treaty, of .Berlin V explicitly
forbade discrimination against any, per
son in the Balkan states, on account of
religion, the Roumanian ! Government
sought to evade the clear provision by de
creeing that the 400,000 Jews living in the
country were not' citizens and consequent
ly that their protection, was ;not-contem
plated by the treaty. •
Therefore, without naming the Jews as
the direct object of hostile legislation, the
Roumanian Government proceeded to en
act certain laws which the State Depart
ment regarded as in deliberate violation
of the spirit of the treaty. For instance,
one law. provided that no Jew should live
in the agricultural sections of , the coun
try. Another prohibited . Jews f rom • en
gaging in agricultural labor. Another for
bade the Jews to own farm lands.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 20.— In view of
the disposition shown in some quarters of
Europe to question the propriety of the
interference of the United States in be
half of, the Roumanian Jews and having
in mind a statement from Roumanian au
thorities to the effect that these Jews had
declined agricultural work, it may be of
Interest to note the fact that the State
Department was particularly careful to
verify all the complaints that had reached
here from various sources respecting the
harshness of Roumanian laws.

Nashua City. N. H.. Sept. 11. 1902.
Gentlemen: It is with great pleasure
that I write to inform you that I have
u*ed eight bottles of your Pure Malt
Whiskey. I would not have been here to-
day only for your wonderful medicine. I
have used all kinds of medicine and been
under the care of doctors. I have had
three severe attacks of grip -ai>d pneu-
monia, which have left me with a bad
cough and weak heart. I am C7 years old.
It has toned up my system and stopped
the hemorrhages and I cough but very
little. I only regret that I did not know
cf your whiskey before. I cannot express
what It has done for me. I beg to re-
main, yours respectfully,
MRS. H. C. ALDINGTON.

fy Malt Whiskey last March and have

ing better. My hemorrhages have almost
stopped, and. cough very much improved.
