HI. IDISCUSSES THE RIGHTS OF
Stand on the California School Ques
tion-Suggests Radical Plan to Con
trol Monopolies--Cites the Louisiana
New York, Feb. a4.-A special to the
Press from Washington says: William
Jennings Bryan in a paper on "Our Dual
Government," which will be made public
tomorrow in the Reader, writes a new
platform for his party. He plants him
self squarely against President Roose
velt on the San Francisco school ques
tion, and on the proposition for general
Federal control of all corporations.
"Upon no subject will the people of
a State insist more strenuously in con
trol!ing their own affairs than in mat
ters of education," he says.
"No construction of the Constitution
could bring State schools within the
scope of Federal legislation, and no
amendment contemplating. such a change
would commend itself to any section of
It is, however, on anti-trust legislation
that Mr. Bryan takes his most radical
stand in a discussion of why it is not
necessary to have a new amendment to
the Constitution in order to control
monopolies. Congress, Mr. Bryan as
serts, has complete authority in respect
to interstate conunerce. and its legisla
tive power to regulate it in the interest
of the people has been upheld by the
Mr. Bryan, on proof that any corpora
tion or corporations had become a mo
nopoly, or that any combination of in
terests had violated the anti-trust laws,
would withdraw from the offending
class the right to ship goods on inter
state roads, use the telegraph lines or
the United States mails. He would with
dr'w from these nmnoplet all - it
facilities, and thus destroy them.
In anti-trust legislation, says Bryan,
there is a real evil to be corrected and a
real public sentiment to be satisfied. He
"A constitutional amendment was pro
posed a few years ago specifically atu
thorizing Congress to deal summanrily
with the subject. It was opposed by
Democrats on the ground that it did not
protect the rights of the States. While
such an amendment, properly drawn,
conferring plenary power upon Congress
but reserving to the several States the
powers which they now have, would be
unobjectionable, it has not yet been
shown. to be necessary.
"Congress has power to control inter-I
state commerce, and the decision of the
Supreme Court in the lottery case leaves
little doubt that that power can be so
exercised as to withdraw the interstate
railroads and telegraph lines and the
mails from corporations which control
enough of the product of any article to
give them a virtual monopoly. No as
sault upon the authority of the sphere
of the State can be justified on the
ground that it is necessary for the over
throw of monopolies. Federal remedies
should supplement State remedies; they
should be substituted for State reme-
Then Mr. Bryan takes up the doctrine
enunciated by Secretary Root, and since
approved by President Roosevelt, that
where the- States fail to pass adequate
laws for the protection of the people
against abuses in trade that affects their
prosperity or their health, the Federal
government should be able to promote
the legislation denied by the State6. This,
Mr. Bryan insists, is the old doctrine of
centralisation advocated by Hamiltona
and totally opposed to the principles of
dual government adopted in the Consti
tuttba, which recognised the rights of
the. States to control except where spe
eifk pocvtt was delegated to the Federal
government by the Constitution. Mr.
"The framers of the Constitution re
cognised the possibility of error in them
selves and the possibility of change in
conditions, and therefore provided a
way of amending the Constitution. If
the time has come for obliterating State
lines and capsolidatinE all authority,
l tidative, judicial and executive, at
ashington, it can be done by constitau
stsnaal amendments whenever three
fourths oftthe States are willing to rat
ify such an amendment."
"But is there any-demand for a sur
render b~ the States of the pogwrs re
to.them? On the axontry, every
eason whih exinated one hundred and
0 . -A mt O
fore the American people and recogniz
lg the powers of Congress as confirmed
by the Supreme Court. Mr. Bryan says
hat only two constitutional amendments
ire necessary, one relating to the method
f electing United States senators and
he other to the indome tax.
"The first annotmcement is required
:o make the Senator the servant of the
eople whom he represents; the condi
ion i' necessary to permit an equitable
listribution of the burdens of the Fed
,ral government: but neither of these
amendments would disturb in the least
he balance between the general and the
;tate governments. So delicately was
his balance adjusted in the beginning
hat the dual form of government de
signed by the fathers adjusts itself even
nore perfectly to conditions as our na
Jhe Mikado May Assent to Proposed
Treaty - The Tokio Government
Was Probably Sounded in Advance.
The Times-Democrat. referring ed
torially to the Japanese exclusion bill
says: While the passage of the immigra
tion bill, with the clause giving the Pres
ient power to exclude alien labor, is
Placing immense power in the hands of
the chief executive, where already en
irely too much power is lodged, there
can be no doubting that the purpose of
the legislation is to bring about the ex
ilusion of Japanese coolies as well as
skilled labor, to which the Pacifio coast
is so strongly committed. It is under
stood that the President will negotiate
a treaty with japan providing for the
mutual exclusion of laborers.
That the Japanese will probably agree
to the proposed treaty is likely enough,
in fact, it is not at all unlikely that the
Tokio government was sounded on the
subject before the recent agreement witt
the San Francisco school directors wa'
patched up. The whole school contro,
versy was precipitated by the inordinat.
pride of the Japanese, who considerec
that the exclusion of a few Japanes:
children from the white schools of Sat
Francisco was a slur on their race,
badge of inferiority. The same vies
will not be taken bf t proposed exelu
A1ot of Jac nese9 eiTf and other la
borers, because the fact can not fail to
be recognized that the exclushton of thi
coolies is an economic question rathe
than an evidence of race prejudice. Be
,ides, it is proposed to accord to Japtu
the same right to exclude American
As American laborers are not naiy so a
go to Japan in search of work, owing to at
the infinitesimally low wages paid in w
Japan, their exclusion from that country ft
will entail no hardship. It is otherwise t
in the case of Japanese laborers coming h
to this country, where the scale of w
wages is so tsuch higher than they have ft
been accustomed to that with their hab
its of thrift they could look forward to
large profits in a short time. The Jap
anese government, however, is not anx
ious that its workers should seek this tl
country in large numbers. It would S
serve the purpose of the Eastern Empire
better to hale its surplus population find V
new homes in Manchuria and Cores ta
than in this country. The development
of Manchuria and Cores, with their great '
possibilities, means much for the future d
prosperity of the Mikado's Empire.
Those countries possess a small popula
tion by comparison with crowded Japan,
and their industries and resources,
which are rat, are yet practically un
developed. 'Japanese inmmigration to
these promising ields in the far east ]
would geatly increase Japanese trade t
and enhance.,Japan's influence in the t
Orient, objects which are much nearer .
to the ambitions of Japanese statesmen
than the colonisation of Japanese tabor
era in far-away America.

The clerks employed in the postoffice,
of the United States are about to receive
an increase in their salaries. This i
timely. Very few of the public have any
conception of the duties and responsibil
ities devolving on the clerks of post
offices. It is easy to grumble and to find
fault because a letter or paper is late or
has been delivered in the wrong box. bht
would the exacting critics do as well it
placed in a similar position? Postoffict
employes have been underpaid and theit
recognition by the government, whihe
late, will be appreciated. If the mem
bers of Congress have deliberately raised
their salaries over fifty per cent, why
should not the employes of the post
offices have an advance in their salaries?
