THE WASHINGTON TDIES; TUESDAY; JANUARY 20, 1914.
trol of business, as if the Govern- V mado itself responsible. It demands ucb. a commission only as au indls . cnsable instrument of information nd publicity, as a clearing house for he facts by which both the public mind and "the managers of great business undertakings should be guided, and as an instrumentality for loing justice to business where the processes of the courts or the nat iral forces of correction outside the ourts are inadequate to adjust the rrncdy to the wrong tn a way that K-ill meet all the equities and cir- umstances of the case. An Administrative Commission. Producing industries, for example, hich have passed the point up to bich combination may be consist- it with the public interest and the reedom of trade, cannot always be issected into their component units s readily as railroad companies or .milar organizations can be. Their issolution by ordinary legal process .ay oftentimes involve financial con equences likely to overwhelm the security market and bring upon it reakdown and confusion. There ught to be an administrative com aiEsIon capable of directing and haping such corrective processes, rot only in aid of the courts but also uy independent suggestion, if neces sary Inasmuch as our object and the spirit of our action in these matters s to meet business half way in its rocesses of self-correction and dis turb itE legitimate course as little as .lossible, we ought to see to it, and he judgment of practical and sa gacious men of affairs everywhere would applaud us if we did see to that penalties and punishments -liould fall, not upon business it self, to its confusion and interrup tion, but upon the individuals who se the instrumentalities of business 5 do things which public policy and jund business practice condemn. ery act of business is done at the nmmand or upon the initiative of r its ascertainable person or group of rsons. These should he held individ 0y responsible and the punishment nould fall upon them, not upon the usiness organization of which they lake Illegal use. It should be one the main objects of our legislation divest such persona of their cor orate cloak and deal with them as itu those who do not represent ieir corporations, but merely by de berate intention break the law. Controling Private Interests. Business men the country through rould, I am sure, applaud us if we ere to take effectual steps to see hut the officers and directors of reat busines bodleB were prevented rom bringing them and the business ir the country into disrepute and anger. Other questions remain which will eed very thoughtful and practical -eatment. Enterprises, in these modern days of great individual for tunes, are oftentimes interlocked, not by being under the control of the fame directors, but by the fact that the greater part of their corporate Ftock is owned by a single person or :,roup of persons who are in some ay intimately related in interest v e are agreed, I take it, that holding inipanies should be prohibited, but hat of the controlling private own nship of individuals or actually co- lerative groups of individuals? -hall th private owners of capital ock be suffered to be themselves a elfect holding companies' "We do ot wish, I suppose, to forbid the urchase of stocks by any person ho pleases to buy them in such uantities as he can afford, or in any ay arbitrarily to limit the sale of tocks to bona fide purchasers. Shall e require the owners of stock, when heir voting power in several com anies which ought to be independ nt of one another would constitute otual control, to make election in hich of them they will exercise eir right to vote? This question I enturc for your consideration. Give Right of Redress. There is another matter in which -operative considerations of justice nd fair play suggest thoughtful emedial action. Xot only do many f the combinations effected or ought to be effected in the indus ruA world work an injustice upon ic ubllc in general: they also di- ctly and seriously injure the indi- Juals who are put out of bu&iness one unfair way or another by the any dislodging and exterminating rces of combination. I hope that f shall agree in giving private in- iduals who claim to have been ared by these procesr-s the right found their suits for redress upon " facts and judgments proved and nterPd in suits by the Government here the Government has upon its 'i Initiative sued the combinations -mplained of and won its suit, and at the statute of limitations shall " suffered to run against such liti aits only from the date of the con- ., on of the Governments' action. is not fair that the private litigant lould be obliged to set up and et- blish again the facts which the o'vrniuent has proved. He cannot ford, he has not the power, to make se of such processes of inquiry as the o eminent has command of. Thus all individual justice be done while he processes of business are recu sed und squared with the general jiit-'lence I" have laid the case before j-ou, no ioubt as it lies in your own mind. s it Het- n the thought of t'.e coun- v Mhat must every candid man iv of the suggestions I have laid be- -e you, of the plain obligation of biHi I have reminded you? That .ese are new things for which the ountry is not prepared? No; but Hat they are old things, now famil- r, and must, of course, be under- tkon if we are to square our laws 1th the thought and desire of the ountrj. Until these things are done, juscientious business men the coun- ry over will be unsatisfied. They fo in these things our mentors and nllcagues. We are now about to rlte the additional articles of our on.6titu.tlon of peace, thp peace that Is honor and freedom and prosperity.

How to placate President Wilson and also a majority of House Demo crats, was a ticklish situation, po tent with possibilities for a serious breach between the President and his party in Congress, which was being discussed sub rosa at the Capitol to day.

If the assistant post master feature is included. The S25, 000.000 roads appropriation also lacks Indorsement by the White House Some leaders deem It a violation of the Democratic "economy program."
