The federal commission on industrial relations will begin hearings here Monday to "find out whether the principles of democ racy arc being respected and main tained in our great basic industries,' said Chairman Walsh of the commis sion in a statement outlining the com mission's plans for its investigation here. During the inquiry many noted men and women capitalists, philan thropists, social workers, labor leaders, writers and others will he witnesses. AYalsh said the fundamental prin ciple of democracy is that people have a compelling voice in determining the laws and the form of government under which they live. He said that principle was applied to industry and now pub lie opinion is demanding that it be ap plied to wage earners. Walsh 'declared if captains of industry, who are active in promoting philanthropic social bet terment work, showed strong belief in these democratic principles, all well and good. Rut, he stated, a recent in vestigation of the commission in Colo rado indicted this is not true, but in stead that the "Rockefeller interests at least prefer paternalism or benevolent absolutism to democracy. "The fundamental principle of de mocracy is that the people shall have a compelling voice in determining the laws and form of government under which they live," II r. Walsh said. "That principle is now being applied to industry and public opinion is rapidly coming to concede the neces sity of giving wage earners a voice in determining working conditions if they are to enjoy the measures of freedom which the founders of our country intended. "The men who control our great est industries are in many instances the men who are most active in promoting philanthropic and social betterment work. They have set aside vast sums of money as per manent endowments and their ex penditures are rapidly giving them compelling influence in the fields of philanthropy, education, economic and sociological research and other branches of social betterment work by which the thought of the country is moulded. "If the record of these men in the management of the industry shows a belief in the democratic principles and a firm adherence to tlio.se prin-j ciples, then we have nothing to fear for the present at least,, in their interest in philanthropic and educa tional moves. Hut the commission's recent inquiry into the coal miners' strike in Colorado indicated that this is not the fact and that the Rocke feller interests at least prefer pat ernalism or bcnovelent absolutism to democracy. "If the attitude assumed by those interests toward their employes in Colorado is to be maintained in di recting tlie work of the Rockefeller Foundation, including the investiga tion of industrial relations the pub lic should know of it. In both acti vities the control is in the hands of the same men. This is not gener ally understood by the public." Mr. Walsh said that when the Rockefeller foundation was first pro posed there was a general discussion as to the wisdom of giving federal sanction to the control, by a self- perpetuating board of directors of a fund of $100,000,000 with immunity from taxation for property used for philanthropic purposes and with no limitation to the amount of the prin cipal of this fund. "Rockefeller and his agents ack nowledged the wisdom of proposals that would limit the power of di rectors," Mr. Walsh continued, "and agreed to several amendments to the bill in congress which were designed to bring the foundation under public influence and control and to limit the size of the endowment. But the effort to get a federal charter then was dropped and the foundation was incorporated under the laws of New York, with none of the restrictions which congress deemed wise." Mr. Walsh said he did not mean to suggest that there is danger of "a trend toward monarchial govern ment" in this country. "Such talk is absurd," he declared. "I do mean that an industrial or ganization wherein the employes have no voice in determining conditions is essentially undemocratic and incom patible with American ideals. "We have held severol investiga tions in the west, going into indus trial conditions in the mining, lumber ing and other industries. Now we are coming here to examine the people who own, direct or control these in terests. We want to investigate the effect these philanthropic foundations have upon industries. "We also want to Inquire into the extent of the control of absentee ownership of industries. For ex ample, the " Rockefeller mines have seven directors in Colorado and eight in New York. To what extent do these New York interests run the industry?." ONLY 5 DAYS LEFT In which to Join Our hnstm&s Glwb Wc state the proposition of our Christmas Club.

The warship signalled Moro Castle, inquiring the name of a steamer which was then about to enter port. The signal man at Moro refused to recognize the signals, sus pecting the cruiser was a belligerent. Her lights were still visible off the harbor tonight. o HEAVY TURKISH CREDIT. CONTEST FOR SEAT SACRAMENTO, Jan. 11. The near est approach to excitement prevailed in the senate when E. E. Grant and Sen ator Wolfe faced each other before the committee in the contest of Grant for the seat of Wolfe. Wolfe defied Grant to show that there was fraud in his election when Grant was recalled. Otherwise there was little activity in each house. The appointment of the lower house committees was not an nounced as expected.

CHICAGO, Jan. 11 Wheat was nearer a panicky market than at any time in months. There were many cases where big houses with selling orders could not find buyers. The entire trade was half demoralized during a brief period with prices melting, but relative steadiness was finally established. It was not until the wheat values had broken 814 cents a bushel under the recent top prices that frantic sellers recognized that confirmation were lacking of the stories that the Dardanelles forts were about to surrender, opening the Russian wheat to the world. The municipal markets commission an nounced "bread booths" will be es tablished if bread reached a famine figure. ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH WASHINGTON, Jan. 11. Secretary Garrison urged the passage of the bill extending scope self-government to the Filipinos before the senate committee, declaring the islands are a liability not an asset to the army and that the bill is a logical step in the long recognized policy toward the Philippines. Speak ing as an individual, he said he was not in favor of forcing the abolition of po lygamy on non-christians because Christ said nothing about it or mar riage although polygamy was conven tional then. o TO BUILD ALASKAN ROAD.
