Deepest Interest of the (ren-
eration Lies in Control
Cnvolves American Ideal of
Equality Under Law,
Washington. D. C., Feb. 10. In his
annual report, Herbert Knox Smith,
commissioner of corporations, declares,
that the deepest interest of .this gener
ation lies in the control of Its domi
nant commercial forces; the issue is
moral, involving' deeply our American
ideal of equal opportunity under the
law; it Is financial, and on its outcome
depends the ultimate stability of our
business system. He says:
The corporation has become the ac
cepted machinery for handling these
forces. It is the artificial creature of
the community. "We have given It great
powers and exemptions not permitted
to the individual. We have made it
effective. We have likewise made it
capable of sinister misuse.
The corporation has concentrated
enormous commercial power in the
hands of a few men. At the same
time It has lessened their personal re
sponsibility for the proper use of that
power. Sense of personal obligation to
the community becomes submerged in
vast corporate entitles. The resulting
abuses call for some restraint that shall
take the place of the old personal obli
cation. Government supervision and
publicity of corporations must be that
The issue is national; action by the
federal government is imperative under
Its unquestioned power and duty to
regulate interstate commerce. The fed
eral government is the only adequate
authority; one of the primary motives
for its creation was for a national con
trol of national business. Those di
recting our great corporations have de
liberately nationalized them in size and
scope; they can not now be heard to
object to a centralized control which j
thy themselves have made necessary, i
They have made their businesses truly
governmental In their effect on the
people. They can not now deny that
the government is concerned therein, j
As guardian .of the nation's welfare,
the government must see to it that the
ordinary standards of right and fair
ness, which restrain our individual citi
zens, shall also be applied to our great
modern businesses. It must make sure
that the business machinery of the
country shall be preserved from such
misuse as would ultimately destroy it.
Conditions confront us -which are
now determining the country's future.
A significant process of evolution Is go
ing on within, our commercial organiza
tion. Two types of corporate managers
are struggling for its control. The one
(like most business men) bases his
success upon increasing the efficiency
of his organization; he acquires and
holds his business by giving better ser
vice -or lower prices. The public thus
shares the benefits of his efficiency. He
builds up our industrial strength.
The other succeeds, not by his own
merit, but by crippling the efficiency
of competitors; by railway rebates, by
unfair competition"! by commercial op
pression, by public rights monopolized
for private gain; not by giving better
sprvice, but by unfairly preventing oth
ers from giving 'any service. If this
process continues, it will surrender the
control of our commercial forces to the
commercial pirate, to the injury of
the nation and the unfair ruin of Indi
viduals. Through the bureau of corporations,
the federal government has deliberately
taken the side of the fair user of our
commercial forces. The Instrument of
the bureau in Its work has been "effi
cient publicity." It has relied on the
A LINIMENT FOR EXTERNAL USE.
Cheerfulness and a bright disposition during the months before baby comes,
are among the greatest blessings a mother can bestow upon the little life about
to "begin. Her happiness and physical comfort -will largely govern the proper
development of the health and nature of the child. Mother's Priend contributes
much to the mother's happiness and iioalth by the relief and mental comfort it
affords. It is a liniment composed of penetrating oils and medicines which
lubricate the muscles and tendons of the body, soothe the swollen mammary
glands, cause a gradual expansion of the skin and tissues, and aid in the relief
of nausea. The regular use of Mother's Priend greatly lessens the pain and
danger when baby comes, and assures a quick and natural recovery for the

It has been pioneer work on a vast
subject, but the results have shown
what can be done and how to do it. A
great awakening has taken place in re
cent years as to our business methods.
The bureau does not assert that It
nas done anything more than aid in
this process. But It does contend that
the principles which it has used are
the "same ones which have brought
About this advance and will continue it.
The bureau has proved by results that
Its methods are lit for broad applica
tion. Under the public condemnation
thus made possible by facts plainly
stated, great corporate abuses have
been abandoned. A sweeping system
of railroad rate discriminations has
been voluntarily cancecled by the rail
roads Involved, and numerous forms of
commercial oppression have diminished,
Coruorate manacers themselves are
frankly advocating more open account
ing. One by one the great silent cor
porations are seeking public confluence
by. adopting a new policy of publicity
The situation is thus ready for a
complete system where XD all import
ant Interstate commerce corporations
shall regularly make reports to a fed
eral agency; where (2) that agency
shall have the further right to verify
and extend the facts presented; where
(3) business transactions of public in
terest shall be made public, safeguard
ing at the same time all proper busi
ness secrets; where (4) there will be
a permanent meeting "ground for cooper
ation and adjustment between the fov
ernment and business interests; and
(5) whereby those corporations that
deal fairly and openly shall corres
pondingly acquire public confidence and
The exact form of tnis system is of
little Importance. The information
must be had for the primary purposes
of the government and the citizen. Co
operation also must be had; publicity
should as far as possible be voluntary.
Corporate managers are recognizing the
value of government publicity. To
profit by this new spirit, the system
of supervision must provide for co
operation, irrosecution is indeed ne
cessary to destroy unfair methods, but
it snouia oe reserved as the last re-
sort rather than used as the normal
. The bureau has proved the practical
value of cooperation. In 190S it pointed
out certain defects in the methods of
the New York and New Orleans cotton
exchanges. Each exchange at once
offered to confer with the com
missioner. As a result of such confer
ence, the New Orleans exchange adopted
by a practically unanimous vote, the
entire recommendations of the bureau.
This far-reaching improvement, affect
ing beneficially the various interests in
that great staple, was secured simply
by publicity and voluntary cooperation.
In short, our great interstate indus
tries must come under permanent na
tional supervision. The bureau has
proved that this can be secured in a
rational and effective way. A system
of practical publicity, with cooperation,
will obtain that requisite for all -wise
measures, reliable Information. It will
involve no drastic action. It will, in
deed, forestall such action. It -will
bring together the government and the
corporate manager In conference and
cooperation, which alone can serve to
adjust continuously the complex and
changing relationship between our
business forces and the public welfare.
It will direct against business evils
the ovei-vhelmlng force of public opin
ion. It will be backed by, and make
effective, penal law where prosecution
is necessary. Such publicity will broad
ly prevent wrong beforehand Instead
of punishing isolated cases afterwards.
It will remove unjust prejudice; it will
Improve the standing of our corporate
securities, both at home and abroad;
it will tend toward more open and
more uniform corporate accounting.
Finally, It will help to give our business
machinery that foundation of fairness

And still Mi-o-na is guaranteed to cure
all these troubles or money back.
What excuse have these people for

but to some people It is better than none.

the position of the "tobacco combina
tion" In the industry, and resulted from
a thorough examination of the organi
zation and development of the Ameri
can Tobacco company and its subsidJ
iary concerns. It also included certain
independent tobacco corporations. The
American Tobacco company gave the
bureau practically free access to all Its
very extensive and voluminous records,
so that the bureau was able to present
an unusually complete and satisfactory
history of the organization of one of
the great interstate corporations of tne
country. Additional parts are now in
course of preparation.
On May 17, 1909, the bureau pub
lished part I of its report on the taxa
tion of corporations. This concerned
the system of taxing manufacturing,
mercantile, transportation, and trans
mission corporations in the six New
England states. The uniform presenta
tion of these systems allows of compari
son, and the purpose of the report was
to make the general principles and
practices of taxation in these states
available in concise and untechnical
shape for the average reader. Finan
cial results of each system for the
latest fiscal year were given. In each
case the principal state officials were
consulted at length as to methods and
practical enforcement. No taxation sys
tem can be properly understood from
a mere examination of statutes, or
without adding thereto a knowledge of
the method and practical results of its
enforcement- Similar reports as to other
sections of the country are in course
of preparation. The subject is of such

It is one of the fundamental pur-
j poses of the bureau to make available
for the average citizen, through the
daily press, the information thus col
lected as to great interstate businesses.
Accordingly, each of its published re
ports, many of which were several hun
dred pages in length, has been accom
panied with a summary, usually from
20 to 50 pages long, anu again with a
still more compact digest in the shape
of a letter of submittal to the president,
usually from 5 to S pages. This letter
of submittal states very briefly the im
portant facts and conclusions as to
permanent and significant conditions
and tendencies in the industry under
investigation, and has been the real
medium of general publicity. It has
been especially framed in each case with
a view to the needs of the press, and
as a rule these letters have been pub
lished by the newspapers -over tlvD
whole country in full.
We terms such work "efficient pub
licity."' It obviously requires an or
ganization especially adapted thereto.
Under the immediate supervision of the
commissioner, each investigation is
usually in charge of one man, who, by
reason of his high economic training,
technical knowledge, business experi
ence, and executive ability, is able to
organize the collection and digesting of
