may be urged that one should say
nothing but good of the dead. Person

much to debauch the government of
the country, to encourage the idea that

Of that there is no doubt. But they

The Trusts Against the Trusts,
There are some students of public
affairs, some public men and econo
mists who bold that the operation of
natural law will ultimately destroy
monopolies and by so doing break
down the conditions which have cre
ated the swollen fortunes which both
President Roosevelt and the leader of
the Democratic party regard as a
meuace to the continued well being of
the republic. I am frank to confess
that I have not agreed with this view.

both state and nation, and very drastic
legislation at that, is necessary. As
