have learned to know that Oately Goods are dependable and

Washington, Jan. 3. "The mere
breaking up of a large combination
into a number of separate parts by
no means meets the whole trust
Question," says Secretary Nagel of
the department of commerce and
labor in his annual report transmit
ted today to President Taft.
Secretary Nagel declares that the
Sherman law has been proved to be
an effective statute beyond all doubt
and that a degree of combination of
capital is quite necessary, but he
adds that the supreme court deci
sions in the Standard Oil and To
bacco cases have demonstrated that
the next step in the control of great
industrial corporations will be the
creation of a permanent federal
SO DEI IMTE PI. AX.
How muuh control shall be exer
cised, whether by commission, fed
eral incorporation or other means,
which have been advocated recent
ly by Judge Elbert H. Gary, George
W. Perkins and other financiers be
fore the senate committee which
has been conducting hearings to de
termine what changes would be de
sirable in the anti-trust laws, Secre
tary Nagel does not definitely" say.
He favors, however, a development
of the powers and scope of the bu
reau of corporations.
"A certain degree of combination
of capital is admittedly essential to
the carrying on of our great busi
ness enterprises," says Secretary Na
gel. "To control properly- such
necessary combinations we must
have some administrative federal
office or commission which shall
make this work its business.
w e must nave a permanent
authority which shall by steady and
continuous supervision and publicity
safeguard the public interests and
at the same time allow full scope
for necessary and proper business
efficiency and development."
- me decisions oi the supreme
court on the Standard Oil and
American Tobacco company cases
have brought forcibly to the public
attention a fact repeatedly present
ed in the reports of this department
the imperative need for the posi
tive administrative regulation of
great industrial corporations.
"The recent decisions and reor
ganizations which followed have
made it . clear that another Impera
tive step remains to be taken and
ttip.tt this is the establishment by
appropriate legislation, of a broad
system of supervision and publicity
for all those Industrial and commer
cial organizations engaged In inter
state and international business
TIME ripe for acton.
"Whether this shall be done by
means of federal incorporation or by
a federal office or commission exer
cising powers of regulation and sup
ervision may be a secondary ques
tion. The first consideration appears
to be the establishment of perma
nent administrative publicity, regu
lation and supervision. The time is
peculiarly ripe for such action. Pub
lic opinion and the views of many
corporation managers are as one."
Secretary Nagel recommends that
the bureau of corporations be de
veloped to take up the form of sup
ervision he suggests. It would be
but a logical expression of the bu
reau's operations and policy, which
he says, have relied solely on pub
licity for the last eight years and
have demonstrated beyond question
what a system of permanent super
vision can do.
Mr. Nagel'8 report in full deals
with the year's work in the many
bureaus and divisions over which he
POSITION towards immigrants.
In connection with the immigra
tion service the secretary recom
mends that any amendments to the
immigration laws tend to relieve Im
migrants of undue hardship without
letting down the bars against unde
sirables. Larger discretion should
be lodged with officials, he thinks,
to admit unfortunate members of
incoming families where it is shown
that eociety would be protected
against burden and danger. He
recommends also that examinations
of immigrants be made before they
embark for this country and that
the time for deporting confessed
criminals be extended.
Secretary Nagel refers in passing
to recent criticism of the immigra
tion service. He says the bureau
has endeavored to obey the general
mandate of the law and relieve the
individual of hardship wherever the
statute allows it.
"In the meantime, Lincoln's ad
vice finds renewed application,'
says the secretary quoting the words,
'If both factions, or neither, shall
abuse you, you will probably be
about right. Beware of being as
sailed by one and praised by the
