PRESIDENT'SMESSAGE The president in bis message to con gress says: No nation has greater resources than ours, and 1 think it can be truthfully said thnt tho citizens of no nation pos sess greater energy nnd Industrial abil ity. In no nntlon are the fundamental business conditions sounder than In mrs lit this very moment and it is fool lull when such Is the case for peo ple to board money Instead of keeping It In sound bunks, for it Is such hoard ing that Is the immediate occasion of money stringency. Moreover, as a rule, the business of our people Is con ducted with honesty nnd probity, aud this applies ullUe to farms and fac tories, to rnllroads and banks, to all our legitimate commercial enterprises. lu any large body of men, however, there are certain to be some who are dishonest, and If. the conditions are such that thes men prosper or commit their misdeed with impunity their example is a ver evil thing for the community. Where these men are business nen of great sagacity and of temperament both unscrupulous and rockless, an-1 where the conditions are such that they act without supervision or control and at first without effective check from public opinion, they delude many innocent people iuto making in vestments or embarking in kinds of business that are really unsound.' When the misdeeds of these successfully dis honest tnou are discovered, suffering comes not only upon them, but upon the lunoccnt whom they have misled. It is n painful awakening, whenever it occurs, and naturally when it does oc cur those who suffer are apt to forget thnt the louger it was deferred the more painful it would be. In the effort to punish the guilty It is both wise and proper to endeavor so far as possible to minimize the distress of those who have been misled by the guilty. Yet it Is not possible to refrain because of such distress from striving to put au end to the misdeeds that are tho ulti mate causes of the suffering and, as a means to this end, where possible to punish those responsible for them. There may be honest differences of opinion ns to many governmental poli cies, but surely there can be no such differences ns to the need of unflinch ing perseverance lu the war against successful dishonesty. Interstate Commerce. No smnll pnrt of tho trouble that we have comes from carrying to an ex treme the national virtue of self reli ance, of independence In Initiative aud actiou. It is wise to conserve this virtue and to provide for Its fullest exercise compatible with seeing that liberty does not become a liberty to wrong others. Unfortunately this is the kind of liberty that the lack of all effective regulation inevitably breeds. The founders of the constitution pro vided thnt the national government should have complete and sole control of Interstate commerce. There was then practically no interstate business save such as wn3 conducted by water, and this the uatloual government at once proceeded to regulate in thorough going und effective fashion. Conditions have now so wholly changed that the interstate commerce by water is insig nificant compared with the amount that goes by land, and almost nil big business concerns are now engaged in Interstate commerce. As a result it can be but partially aud imperfectly con troller! or regulated by the action of any one of the several states, such ac tion inevitably tending to be either too drastic or else too lax and in either case ineffective for purposes of Justice. Only the natiounl government can in thoroughgoing fnshlou exercise the needed control. This does not mean that there should be any extension of federal authority, for such authority already exists under the constitution lu amplest and most far reaching form, but it docs menu that there should be an extension of federal activity. This Is not advocating centralization. It is merely looking facts in the face and realizing thnt centralization tn business hns already come and cannot be avoid ed or uudone and that the public at large tan only protect Itself from cer tain evil effects of this business cen tralization by providing better methods for the exercise ot control through the authority already centralized In the nntionul government by the constitu tion Itself. There must be no halt in the healthy constructive course of ac tion which this nation has elected to pursue aud has steadily pursued dur ing the last six years, as shown both in the legislation of the congress and the administration of the law by the department of Justice. National License For Railroade. The most vital ueed is in, connection with tho railroads. As to these, In my Judgment, there should now be either a national Incorporation act or a law licensing railway compaales to engage In Interstate roflrftteree upon certain conditions. The law should be so framed as to give to tho Interstate commerce om mission uower to pass upon the future issue of securities, while ample means should be provided THo eunble the commission whenever lu its Judgment it is necessary to make a physical valuation of any railroad. As I stated in my message to the congress a year ago, railroads should bo given power to enter into agreements sub ject to these agreements being made public in minute detail and to the con sent of the Interstate commerce com mission being first obtained. Until the national government assumes prop er control of interstate commerce in the exercise- of the authority It nlready possesses it will be Impossible either to give to or to get from the railroads full Justice. The railroads and all oth er great corporations will do well to recognize that this control must come. The only question is as to what gov ernmental body can most wisely exer cise It The courts will determine the limits within which the federal author ity can exercise it, and there will still remain ample work within each state for the railway commission of that state, and the national Interstate com merce commission will work In har mony with the several state commis sions, each within Its own province, to achieve the desired end. The Antitrust Law. Moreover, in my Judgment, there should be additional legislation looking to tho proper control of the great busi ness concerns engaged In interstate business, this control to be exercised for their own benefit and prosperity no less than for the protection of In vestors and of the general public. As I have repeatedly said In messages to congress aud elsewhere, experience has definitely shown not merely the unwis dom, but the futility, of endeavoring to put a stop to all business combinations. Modern industrial conditions are such thnt combination is not only necessary, but inevitable. It is so in the world of business Just as It Is so in the world of labor, and it is as idle to desire to put an end to all corporations, to all big combinations of capital, as to desire to put nn end to combinations of labor. Corporation and labor union alike have come to stay. Each If properly man aged is a source of good and not evil. Whenever In either there is evil It should be promptly held to account but it should receive hearty encourage ment so long as it is properly managed. It is profoundly Immoral to put or keep on the statute books a law nomi nally in the Interest of public morality that really puts a premium upon pub lic Immorality by undertaking to for bid honest men from doing what must be done under modern business condi tions so that the law itself provides tat Its own Infraction must be the condition precedent upon business suc cess. To aim at tbe accomplishment of too much usually means the accom plishment of too little and often tbe do ing of positive damage. Not Repeal, but Amendment. The antitrust law should not be re pealed, but It should be made both more efficient and more in harmony with actual conditions. It should be so amended as to forbid only the kind of combinatlou which does harm to the general public, such amendment to be accompanied by or to be an Incident of a grant of supervisory power to the governmeut over these big concerns engaged in interstate business. This should be accompanied by provision for the compulsory publication of ac counts and tbe subjection of books and papers to the inspection of the gov ernment officiate. A beginning has al ready been made for such supervision by the establishment of tbe bureau ot corporations. The antitrust law should not prohibit combinations that do no Injustice to the public, still less those tbe existence of which Is on the whole of benefit to tbe public. But even if this feature of the law were abolished there would remain us an equally objectionable fea ture the difficulty nnd delay now inci dent to Its enforcement The govern ment must now submit to irksome and repeated delay before obtaining a final decision of the courts upou proceedings Instituted, and even a favorable de cree may mean an empty victory. Moreover, to attempt to control these corporations by lawsuits means to Im pose upon both the department ot Justice and the courts an impossible burden. It Is not feasible to carry on more than a limited number of such suits. Such a lnw to be really effec tive must of course be administered by on executive body and Aot merely by means of lawsuits. The design should be to prevent the abuses inci dent to the creation of unhealthy and improper combinations instead of wait ing uutil they arc in existence and then attempting to destroy them by civil or criminal proceedings. Law Should Be Explicit. A combination should not be tolerat ed if it abuse the power acquired by combinatlou to the public detriment No corporation or association of any kind should be permitted to engage In forelgu or lutcrstnte commerce that is formed for the . purpose of or whose operations create a monopoly or gen eral control of the production, sale or distribution of any one or more of the prime necessities of life or articles of general use and necessity. Such com binations are against public policy. They violate the common law. The doors of the courts are closed to those who are parties to them, and I believe the congress can close the channels of Interstate commerce against them for its protection. Tbe law should make Its prohibitions and, permissions as clear and definite as possible, leaving tho least possible room for arbitrary action or allegation of such action on the part of the executive or of diver gent interpretations by the courts. Among the points to be aimed at should be the prohibition of unhealthy competition, such as by rendering serv ice at au actual loss for the purpose of crushing out competition, the preven tion of inflation of capital aaid the pro hibition of a corporation's making ex clusive trade with itself a condition of having any trade with Itself. Reason able agreements lctween or comblna Jlons of corporations should be per mitted provided they are first submit ted to and approved by some appro priate government body. Congress' Power. The congress hos the power to char ter corporations to engage in interstate and foreign commerce, and a general law can be enacted under the provi sions of which existing corporations could take out federal charters and uew federal corporations could be cre ated. An essential provision of such a law should be a method of predeter mining by some fcdcrul board or com mission whether the applicant for a federal chnrter was an association or combination within the restrictions of the federal law. Provision should also be made for complete publicity tn all matters affecting the public and com' plete protection to the Investing public and the shareholders In the -matter ot issuing corporate securities. If nn in corporation law is uot deemed ndVlsa ble, a license act for big Interstate cor porations might be enacted or a com biuutlou of the two might be tried. The supervision established might be analogous to thut now exercised over national banks. At least the anti trust act should be supplemented by specific prohibitions of the methods which experience has shown have been of most service In enabling monopolis tic combinations to crush out competi tion. The real owners of a .corporation should be compelled to do business in their own name. The right to hold stock in other corporations should here after be denied to Interstate corpora tions, unless on approval by the proper government officials, and a prerequisite to such npproval should be the listing with the government of all owners aud stockholders, both by the corporation ownlug such stock and by the corpora tion in which such stock Is owned. Lessons of Recent Criiii. To confer upon tho national govern ment lu connection with the amend ment I advocate lu the antitrust law power of supervision over big business concerns engaged In Interstate com merce would lienefit them as It has benefited the national banks. In the recent business crisis It is noteworthy that the institutions which failed were Institutions which were not under the supervision and control of the national government. Those which were under natioual control stood the test National control of the kind ubove advocated would be to the benefit of every well managed railway. From the standpoint of the public there Is need for additional tracks, additional terminals aud Improvements In the ac tual handling of the railroads, and all this as rapidly as possible. Ample, safe aud speedy .transportation facili ties are even more necessary than cheap transportation. Therefore there is need for the investment of money which will provide for all these things while at the same time securing as far as Is possible better wages and shorter hours for their employees. Therefore, while there must be just nnd reasona ble regulation of rates, we should be the first to protest against any arbitra ry and unthinking movement to cut them down without the fullest and most careful consideration of all Inter ests concerned nnd of the actual needs of the situation. Only a special body of men acting for the national govern ment under nuthority conferred upon It by tbe congress Is competent to pass judgment oa such a matter. . Those1 who fear from any reason the extension of federal activity will do well to study the history not only of the natioual banking act but of tbe pure food law, and notably the meat Inspection law recently enacted. The pure food law was opposed so violent ly that Its passage was delayed for a decade, yet it has worked unmixed and immediate good. The meat inspection law was even more violently assailed, and the same men who now denounce the attitudu of the natioual govern ment tn seeking to oversee and control the workings of Interstate common car riers and business concerns then as serted that we were "discrediting and ruining a great American industry." Two years have not elapsed, and al ready It has become evident that the great benefit the law confers upon the public is accompanied by an equal ben efit to the reputable packing establish ments. The latter are better off under the lnw than they were without it The benefit to Interstate common car riers and business coucerns from the legislation I advocate would be equal ly marked. Pure Food Law. Incidentally In the passago of the pure food law the action of the vari ous state food and dairy commission ers showed in striking fashion bow much good for the whole people results from the hearty co-operation of the federal and state ofllclals In securing a given reform. It Is primarily to the action of these state commissioners that we owe the enactment of this law, for they aroused the people, first to demand the euactment nnd enforce ment of state laws on the subject and then the enactment of the federal law, without which the state laws were largely Ineffective. There must be the closest co-operntlon between the na tional aud state governments In ad ministering these laws. Currency Legislation Needed. I again urge on the congress the need of immediate attention to this matter. We need a greater elasticity In our currency, provided of course that we ' recognize tbe even greater need of a safe and secure currency. Provision should be made for an emergency currency. The emergency issue should of course be made with nn effective guarantee nnd upon condi tions carefully prescribed by the gov ernment. Such emergency issue must be based on adequate securities ap proved by the government and must bo Issued under a heavy tax. This would permit currency being issued when the demand for it was urgent while secur ing its retirement as the demand fell off. It Is worth Investigating to de termine whether officers and directors of national banks should ever be al lowed to loan to themselves. Trust companies should be subject to tho same supervision ns banks. Legisla tion to this effect should be enacted for the District of Columbia and the territories. Yet Sve must also remember that even the wisest legislation on the sub ject can only accomplish a certain amount No legislation can fy any possibility guarantee the business com munity against the results of specula tive folly any more than it can guaran tee an individual against the results of his extravagance. When an individual mortgages his house to buy an auto mobile he invites disaster, and when wealthy men or men who pose as such or are unscrupulously or foolishly eager to become such indulge In reckless speculation, especially if it Is accom panied by dishonesty, they Jeopardize not only their own future, but the fu ture of all their innocent fellow cltl zcus, for they expose the whole busi ness community to panic and distress. Can't Revise Tariff Now, This country Is definitely committed to the protective system, and any ef fort to uproot it could not but cause widespread industrial disaster. In other words, the principle of the pres- ent tariff law could not with wtedom be changed. But In a country of such phenomenal growth as ours it is prob ably well that every dozen years or so the tariff laws should be carefully scru tinized so as to see that no excessive or improper benefits are conferred thereby, that proper revenue is provid ed and that our foreign trade Is en couraged. There must always be as a minimum a tariff which will not only allow for the collection of an ample revenue, but which will at least make good the difference in cost of produc tion here und abroad that is, the dif ference In the labor cost here and abrond, for the well being of the wage- worker must ever be a cardinal point of American policy. The question should be approached purely from a business standpoint, both tbe time and the manner of the chnngo being such as to arouse the minimum of agitation and disturbance In the business world nnd to give the lenst play for selfish nnd factional motives. The sole con sideration should be to see thnt the sum total of changes represents tbe public good. This means thnt the sub ject cannot with wisdom be dealt with in the year preceding a presidential election, becnuse as a matter of fact experience hns conclusively shown that at such a time It Is Impossible to get men to treat It from the standpoint of the public good. In my judgment the wise time to deal with the matter is Immediately after such election. Income Tax and Inheritance Tax. When our tax laws are revised the question of an income tax and an in heritance tax should receive the care ful attention of our legislators. In my judgment both of these taxes should be part of our system of fed eral taxation. I speak diffidently about the income tax because one scheme for an income tax was declared unconsti tutional by the supreme court, while in addition it is a difficult tax to admin ister in its practical working, and great care would have to be exercised to see that it was hot evaded by the very men whom It was most desirable to have taxed. Nevertheless a graduated Income tax of the proper type would be a desirable feature of federal taxa tion, and it is to be hoped thnt oue may be devised which the supreme court will declare constitutional. Tho Inheritance tax, however, Is a far better method of taxation. The government has the absolute right to decide as to the terms upon which a man shall receive n bequest from an other, and this point In the devolution of property is especially appropriate for the imposition of a tax. Laws im posing such taxes have repeatedly been placed upon the national statute books and as repeatedly declared constitu tional by the courts, and these laws coutalucd the progressive principle that is, after a certain amount is reach ed the bequest or gift In life or death is increasingly burdened and tbe rate of taxation Is Increased in proportion to tbe remoteness of blood of the man receiving the bequest These principles are recogulzed already In the leading civilized uations of the world. . Germany's Inheritance Tax. The German law is especially inter esting to us because It makes the in beritance tax an imperial measure while ullotlng to the Individual states of the empire a portion of tho pro ceeds and permitting them to impose taxes iu addition to those Imposed by the Imperial governmeut Small inher itances are exempt, but the tax is so sharply progressive that wheu the in heritance is still not very large, pro vided It Is not an agricultural or a for est land, It is taxed ut tho rate of 23 per cent If It goes to distant relative? There is no reason why in tho United States the national government should not impose inheritance taxes in addi tion to those Imposed by the states, and when we Inst had nn Inheritance tax about one-half of the stutes levied such taxes concurrently with the na tional government making a combined maximum rate In some cases us high as 25 per cent To Tax Nonresidents Higher. The tax should If possible bo made to bear more heavily upon thoso resid ing without the couutry thnn within it A heavy progressive tax upon a very largo fortune is in no way such a tax upon thrift or Industry as a like tax would be on a small fortune. No ad vantage conies cither to tho country as a whole or to tho individuals inher iting money by permitting the transmission lu their entirety of the enormous fortunes which would be af fected by such a tux, and as an Inci dent to Its fuuetlou of revenue raislug such a tax would help to preserve a measurable equality of opportunity for the people of tho generations growing to manhood. Wo have uot the slightest sympathy with thnt socialistic Idea which would try to put lazluess. thrlftlessncss and inefficiency on a par with Industry, thrift and efficiency, which would strive to break up not merely private property, but. what Is far more impor tant, the home, the chief prop upon which our whole civilization stands. Such a theory If ever adopted would mean the ruin of the entire couutry, hut proposals for legislation such as this herein OMvocated are directly op posed to this class of sociiallstlc the ories. . Enforcement of the Law. A few years ego there was loud com plaint that the law could not be in voked against wealthy offenders. There Is no such complaint now. The course of the department of Justiue during the last few years hns been such as to make it evident that no man stands above tho law, that no corporation Is so wealthy that It cannot bo held to ac count Everything that can be dene under the, existing law nnd with the existing state of public oplulon. which so profoundly influences both the courts nnd juries, has been done, but the laws themselves need strengthening. They should be made more definite, so that no honest man can be led unwittingly to break them nnd o that the real wrongdoer can be readily punished. Moreover, there must be the public opinion back of the laws or the laws themselves will be of no avail. The two great evils In the execution of our criminal laws today are sentimentality aud technicality. For the latter tho remedy must come frqm the hands of the legislatures, the courts and the law yers. The oilier must depend for 111 enre upon the gradual growth of a sound' public opinion which shall Insist that regard for the law nnd the de mands of reason shall control all other influences aud 'emotions in the jury box. Both of these evils must be re moved or public discontent with the criminal lnw will continue. Injunctions. Instances of abuse In the granting of Injunctions in labor disputes con tinue to occur, and the resentment in the minds of thoso who feel thnt their rights are being Invaded and tbelr lib erty of action aud of speech unwar rantably restrained continues likewise to grow. Much of the attack on the use of the process of Injunction Is wholly without warrant, but I am con strained to express the belief that for some of It there Is warrant. This ques tion is becoming one of prime impor tance, aud unless the courts will deal with It lu effective mnnner it is cer tain ultimately to demand some form of legislative action. It would be most unfortunate for our social welfare if we should permit many honest and law abiding citizens to feel thut they had just cnuse for regarding our courts Tilth hostility. I earnestly commend to pm attention of the cc uv' Jr. so that somo way vLfltxf which will limit the i attention of the cougress this may be de- abuse of in junctions und protect those rights which from time to time it unwarrant ably Invades. Moreover, discontent Is often expressed with the uso of tbe process of Injunction by the courts, not ouly In labor disputes, but where state laws are concerned. I refrain from discussion of this question ns I am informed thnt it will soou receive the consideration of the supreme court The process of injunction Is an es sential adjunct of the court's dolug its work well, aud as preventive measures are always better than remedial the wise use of this process is from every standpoint commendable. But where it is recklessly or unnecessarily used tho abuse should be censured, above all by the very men who are properly anxious to prevent any effort to shear the courts of this necessary power. Tho court's duclsiou must bo linal. The protest is only against the conduct of Individual Judges In needlessly antici pating such final decision or lu the tyrannical use of what Is nominally a temporary Injunction to accomplish what is in fact a permanent decision.
