J. ! Trust legislation, constructive ratherj than destructive, and immigration, were among subjects . to which Gov. Woodrow Wilson save his attention at Sea Girt. N. J., Wednesday. He talk ed about trusts with Louis 3. Bran deis of .Boston, and expressed himself on immigration before a delegation of Italians from Essex county, N. J. Mr. Brandeis had luncheon with the - gov ernor,1 and - was with him nearly two hours. Mr. Brandeie declared as he left the executive's cottage that he was a progressive in politics and that Gov. .Wilson 4 was his . idea of a pro gressive. "We discussed social and industrial problems," , said Mr. Bran deis. "and naturally the Sherman anti trust law. We took up the LaFollette Lenroot bill, the Oldfteld- bill, and Other measures ' to amend - the . fener man law, butconc!uded ' that none of these went far enough.. iio v. wiison is ; a constructive statesman able to solve these problems, and I found him in accord with my views on the trust question. " We talked, about the defects' : in- the ..third-party platform. It was a talk about the best interests of the wprkingman.") Mr. Brandeis said he probably would make a num ber of speeches on behalf of Gov." Wil son,' discussing the , trusts and the tariff- ; .; . -V , "Both Of ue" said Gov. Wilson Wed nesday, discussing his, conference with. Mr. Brandeis, "ha.ve as an object to prevent monopoly. Monopoly is creat ed by ' unregulated .competition, by competition that overwhelms all oth er competitions and destroys them, and the only way to enjoy industrial freedom Is to destroy that condition." With reference to, the Sherman anti trust law. the ' governor, was asked whether Mr. Brandeis had proposed means of strengthening that law. "Not so much to strengthen it,". replied the governor., "as to supplement, it. , We want a. law that will assist people in their business instead of ; tying them up. '.. The governor declared that Mr. Brandeis - more than any. other man whom v he knew. had. studied "corpor ate business from the efficiency to -the political situation." . r i . '. ' ' Representative C. D. -Carter of Okla homa talked with .the governor Wedr nefiday about ' the possibility,, of an ex tra session in March if he were elect ed, -Mr.' Carter, said, that tariff legis lation would proceed no further .with a .Republican Senate in the next ses sion, beginning in December, and that tn mit rcfnrmn tnlo . effect immediatelv the Democratic administration would have to call an extra session. :xna.xs looking pretty far ahead," said Gov. Wilson with a smile. -The delegation of Italians, through their spokesman, Antonio Petroni, told the governor that those who had seen t to criticize his views on immigra tion, "had made a mountain out of a mole hill.". . . v WARNER BROS.
