GREAT TRUST QUESTION IS FRIEELY DlSCUSSED Under the Leadership of President Roose velt the Glory and Honor of the Coun try Both at Home and Abroad in Safe Keeping With the Republican Party Good Government in the Orient. [DY AnSOCIATED PRESS.] St. Paul, July i.-Former State Senatos 'Masterman, chairman of the state central committee, in calling the republican state convention to order this afternoon named United States Senator Knute Nelson for temporary chairman. The selection was approved with applause at the conclusion of which Mr. Nelson addressed the con vention. He said: "The tendency of the times is to com bination and concentration and where the chief object of this is to lessen the cost of production so as to cheapen the cost to the consumer and not to obtain a monopoly, suppress competition, or check the reduction of price to the consumer, the public will not be injured and has no fair ground for complaint. "A monopoly national in its scope and consequences should be for the protection of the entire people,and subject to national control. Whoever seeks to enjoy national protection and national advantages should also submit to a national inspection and regulation. Protection in such cases should be mutual. Complete consolidr tion, whatever its purpose may be, becomes nevertheless in its essence a monopoly and a complete monopoly necessarily in. volves absolutism and this is repulsive to the great body of the people and is dreaded by them in the realm of traffic no less than in the political world. "The glory, the honor and prosperity of our cottltry at home and abroad, under the leadership of President Roosevelt are safe in the keeping and charge of the re publican party. We shall meet and suc cessfully solve the Philippine problem as we have met and successfully solved every other great problem we have been con fronted with. "We shall, in time, plant the flag of liberty, order and good government as firmly in the distant orient as here at home, and millions of oppressed and down trodden humanity will worship and for ever bless the great republic of the West."
