It shows the voit earning power that urisen from substantial control of 11 largo industry. The great To- mcco Combination, which centers round the American Tobacco com pany, started in 1800 with $25,000,000 capitalization, operating only in cig arettes. Hy 1D0S It controlled nbbut four-fifths of tho whole domestic tobacco industry, except cignrs, and a its capitalization exceeded $3HI, 000,000. This concentration is tho basis of the combination's groat. earn ing iwwer. High rates of earnings hnvo gone with monopolistic control of tho Industry, and tho less tno uc greo of control tho less tho Tate. Tho uronf of this follows here. (Mates of earnings are hcrelng computed in nil eases on tho actual investment including borrowed funds as estnh llshed by the liureaM.

This was the earning iiowcr of sub stantial monopoly, the result of the concentration above stated. Earnings In Particular Branches Here nppcars, even more strikingly tho earning power of concentrnted control. In the snuff business tho combination has an almost complete monopoly 00 per cent of the whole business. From a rate of less than 0 per cent In the first year (1001), the earnings rose in 1003 to 15 per cent und 1O00 to over 22 per cent.
