BROTHER OF PRESIDENT
Declares Sugar Trust Prosecmtdon Has Been Held Up
Because of Connection oi People in High Places.
Assails Record of the Attorney General
and President's Brother's Connec
tion With the Trust.
Washington, D. C. April 14 In deliv
ering a scathing- denunciation of the
American Sugar Refining company, in
the house of representatives, represen
tative Rainey, of Illinois, did not hesi
tate to make bold suggestions concern
ing "that most corrupt and rotten trust
ever created by the protective tariff
system" and presjdent Taft. attorney
general "VVickersham, and Henry "W.
Taft, brother of the president.
Mr. Raiiney referred to president
Taft's message sent to cougress about
a year ago in which the president ad
vised against an investigation of the su
gar frauds by cougress for the reason
that "it might, by giving Immunity and
otherwise, prove an embarrassment n
securing conviction of the guilty par
Reviewing the history of the sugar
trust, and especially recent fraudulent
acts in underweighing raw sugar for the
purpose of defrauding the government
of millions of revenue, Mr. Ralney said:
'Trust Controls Republicans."
"The situation in brief is as follows:
Prominent stockholders and directors of
the sugar trust are in grave danger.
o; at Te: t hey were not long ago The
. - " ; ,
doors of our penitentiaries were open
ing for many of them. They have, how
ever, succeeded, through their control
of the Republican party, in bringing
.about 'this most delightful arrange
ment: "The attorney general of the United
States was until his appointment a su
gar trust attorney, familiar with the
methods of the sugar trust, exhibiting
even now a remarkable sympathy for
its officials in their difficulties.
"The general counsel for the sugar
trust is an exassistant attorney general
of the United States, loyal to the Re
publican party, familiar with the meth
od and with the secrets of the attorney
"The brother of the president of the
United States is one of the attorneys
for the sugar trust.
"J. E. Parsons, the father of the ex
president of the New York county Re
publican committee, is under indictment
on account of his offense against the
law in Philadelphia.
"Aiid the president of the United
States has advised against -a congres-
slonal investigation of the sugar trust.
i for the reason that it might prove em-
The L.nnt Frauds.
"The last of the frauds committed by
the sugar trust occurred on the 20th
day of November. 1907. The statute
of limitations i running every day and
will soon beccme a complete bar against
any criminal prosecution that may be
brought. The Republican party is
charged with the administration of af
fairs in this house. Two nundred and
19 Republican members sit on the other
side oi this chamber, and since the mes
sage of the president of the United
States was read in this house, not one
of them has lifted his voice against the
j sugar trust or in uitui ui m unco Liba
tion by congress.
In a carefully prepared speech Mr.
Rainey proceeded to review many inci
dents in the career of the sugar trust
! which he declared readied out through
politiical parties and corrupted men as
no other law defying corporation has
ever been able to do." i
"For 14 years, tnrough its almost ab
solute -management and control of the
Republican party," declared Mr. Rainey.
j "the sugar trust has been able to wreck
great financial institutions; it has been
able to shape -tariff schedules, through j
tariff schedules framed to suit its pur-
t Doses: it has been able to steal
1 rectly from the people; and, by bribing
j Republican officials, it has been able

Again referring to the ( president's
message to congress advising against
an investigation of the sugar frauds,
MrRainey insisted that such an Investi
gation would not have granted Immunity
to witnesses called before a committee
of congress as suggested by the presi- 1
dent. He cited the language of the con- I
stitution ana ot statutes to sustain tnat
"And yet." ne saW. "that message of

treasury, the impossibility of providing

it had "stolen millions from the treas

The country is in debt and the men who

publican campaign fund are, under a
Republican administration, permitted to

He was. aware, he said, that he was
again rendering himself liable to the
charge of partisanship.
"I will probably be again excluded by
the Republican majority from serving
on the investigating committees of this
house," he added. ""When you discuss
on this floor the attempted offenses of
men high in the councils of the Repub
lican party, they answer by misrepre
senting -what you say and by charging
you with partisanship. I am well aware
that the offense of lese majeste h&s
been fully recognized here by -insurgents
and regulars alike on the other
side of this chamber, and I have been
adjudged guilty of it; but I propose
to again render myself liable to the
same charge. In the early days of the
republic the old rule prevailed that a

A Presidential Precedent.
The annals of rongres he said would
be searched in vain to find another mes
sage by a president advising against a
congressional Investigation under sim
Going Into the details of tariff legis
lation. Mr. Rainey declared that the
sugar trust had employed the methods
of the "Standard Oil monopoly," in at
tempting to control the production of
sugar far beyond the boundaries of the
United States. By manipulating legis
lation he said -they had crushed the
Spreekels company, and possessed them
selves of the sugar supply of Hawaii.
All the time, he said, the trust was con
tributing to the Republican campaign

I gave to the Democratic partv Cuban
annexation or independence, he said,
depended upon the Interests of the trust
in exploiting the raw sugar of that
island. "When the purposes of the trust
could be served best by the annexation
of Cuba, he declared, a revolution would
be started in that island. The free ad
mission of 300,000 tons of Philippine su
gar, he insisted was but a move to help
swell the coffers of the sugar monop

Coming down to the building of the
Pennsylvania sugar refmery in Phila
delphia In 1903 by Adolph Segal, he
showed how that concern, created to
be sold to the sugar 'trust, had by a
process of lending money for its com-
j pletion drifted into -the control of the
trust, isemg suea oy tne Pennsylvania
Sugar Refining company, he said, it be
came necessary for the trust to engage
additional counsel, and they turned to
the firm of Strong &. Cadwalader, "one
of those important New York city legal
firms to wltich great corporations ap

have violated the laws of the land.

Citing the names of this firm asin
cluding those of George W. WIckersham
and Henry "W. Taft. he again gave the
list of the firm after president Taft's
inauguration when Mr. "WIckersham had
become attorney general and Henry "W.
Taft had been moved up from fourth to
second place in the list of members.
"When the case of the Pennsylvania
Sugar Refining company, against the
trust came "P on March 20, 1908, In the
circuit court for the southern district
of New York the name of Henry "W.
Taft. he said, appeared as counsel for
the sugar trust.
"This situation," he said, "discloses
the fact that in the hour of their great
est stress the managers of this most
infamous of all corporations were as
resourceful as ever. Matters had been
so arranged that a sugar trnst lawyer
became attorney general of the United
States, and the brother of the president
I of the United States became ODeulv one
j of the attornej's for the sugar trust."
He was aware, he said, that the at
torney general had had read into the
Congressional Record a statement de
nying that he had been an attorney for
the sugar trust.
"It may be that the attorney general
was not consulted in tnls suit, and It
may be that he did not render any serv
ice in connection with it," said Mr.
Radney. "But the attorney general has
not vet stated how the enormous fA tho

refuse to accept any portion of it? The
country would like to know. He neg

partner to -whom he refers, the member
of the firm of Strong & Cadwalader,
who was active in the defense of the
American Sugar Refining conmanv In
these cases, was the brothe"r of the
president of the United States
"I submit that the attorney general
ought not to seeK to avoid even an in
active connection with this infamous
trust by throwing the entire burden
and the disgrace of such connection upon

But. he continued, on June 27. 1909,
the "-attorney general wrote to 'John S.
"Wise.uJted Stat3 district attorney for
the southern district of New York, a
letter whichQrr. Rainey thought should
go into the Congressional Record, al
though alreadypubllshed elsewhere. In
this letter Mr. Vfcickershain suggested
to Mr. "Wise in respect to the sugar
fraud cases that "a strong effort -will be
made tomorrow to persue the president
to interfere In some way jq prevent the
T respectfullj- contend." concluded
Mr. Raiiney, 'that the Republican major
ity In this house can not afford to
longer delay a congressional Investiga
tion; and the millionaire malefactors
-who control the sugar trust, and -wfi'o.
are responsible for the perpetration of
these gigantic frauds ought to be held
up tfo the contempt" of the country, in
Pittsburg they have learned how to
reach the men higher up.
"They simply propose immunity to the
men whose conviction Is not important,
but who are onlj- tools In the hands of
the principal malefactors, and as a re
sult minor city officials were a few days
ago coming by scores in Pittsburg "to
the office of the prosecuting attorney
and telling their stories, implicating the
real criminals. And the time may not
be far distant when men who pass in
Pittsburg as respectable citizens will
pay the penalty to which their criminal
conduct has rendered them liable.
"The attorney general of the United
States, however, commences his prosecu
tions and ends them with unimportant
officials and $18 a week checkers, and
the real persons guiltj- of the most
colossal fraud in the history of our
government are permitted to go about
without punishment, without exposure,
sfill posing as honest men, still Tvilllng
and still able to contribute to the cam
paign funds of the Republican party."
