advised orders of injunction without
notice and will render such orders
when Issued much less objectionable
by the short time in which they may
remain effective'.
Anti-trust and Interstate Commerce
Laws.
The Jurlsdictlou of the general gov
ernment over Intorstnte commerce has
Jed to the passive of the so called
•'Bhernmu nntl-trust law" and the "in
.terstate commerce law" and Its
amendments. Tlie developments in the
lOperatlon of those laws, as shown by
Indictments, trials. Judicial decisions
and other sources of information, call
for a discussion and some suggestions
B9 to amendments. These I prefer to
embody in special message instead
of including them In the present com
munication, and I shall avail myself
of the first convenient opportunity to
bring these subjects to the attention of
congress.
Jail of the District of Columbia.
My predecessor transmitted to the
congress a special message on Jan. 11.
1900. accompanying the rejmrt of com
missioners theretofore appointed to in
vestigate the Jail, workhouse, etc.. In
the District of Columbia, in which he
directed attention to the report as set
ting forth vividly "the really out
rageous conditions in the workhouse
and Jail."
The congress has taken action in pur
suance of the recommendations of that
report and of the president to the ex
tent of appropriating funds and enact
ing the necessary legislation for the
establishment of a workhouse and re
formatory. No action, however, has
been taken by the congress with re
spect to the jail, the conditions of
which are still antiquated and insani
tary. I earnestly recommend the pas
sage of a sufficient appropriation to en
able a thorougb remodeling of that in
stitution to be made without delay. It
Is a reproach to the national govern
ment that almost under the shadow of
the capltol dome prisoners should be
confined in a building destitute of the
ordinarily decent appliances requisite
to cleanliness and sanitary conditions.
SECOND CUSS HAIL NUTTER
Suggested That Magazine! and Pe
riodicals Fay More Pottage.
The deficit every year In the post
office department is largely caused by
the low rate of postage of 1 cent a
pound charged 6Q second class mail
matter, which Includes not only news
papers, but magazines and miscella
neous periodicals. The actual loss grow
ing out of the transmission of this
second class mail matter at 1 cent a
pound amounts to about $63,000,000 a
year. The average cost of the trans- feel it most Important that we should
portatlon of this matter Is more than have means of transportation con
Scents pound, trolled in the interest of the expansion
•over which newspapers are delivered
to their customers is 291 miles, while
the average' haul of magazines is
1,049 and of miscellaneous periodicals
1,128 miles. Thus the average haul
,«f the magazine is three and one-half
times and that of the miscellaneous
periodical nearly four times the haul
of the dally newspaper, yet all of
.them pay the same postage rate of 1
cent a pound. The statistics of 1907
show that second class mall matter
constituted 03.91 per cent of the
weight of nil the mall and yielded
only 5.19 per cent of the revenue.
The figures given are startling and
show the payment by the government
of an enormous subsidy to the news
papers, magazines and periodicals, and
congress may well consider whether
radical steps should not be taken to
reduce the deficit in the postoffice de
partment caused by this discrepancy
between the actual cost of transporta
tion and the compensation exacted
therefor.
I commend the whole subject to con
gress, not unmindful of the spread of
Intelligence which a low charge for
carrying newspapers and periodicals
assists. I very much doubt, however,
the wisdom of a policy which const*
totes so large a subsidy and requires
additional taxation to meet it.
Postal Savings Banks.
The second subject worthy of mea
ttoo in the postoffice department is
the real necessity and entire practica
bility of establishing postal savings
banks. The successful party at the
last election declared In favor of postal
savings banks, and, although the prop*
osiUon finds opponents in many parts
of the country. 1 am convinced that
toe people desire Such batiks and"am
sure that when the banks are fur
nished they will be productive of the
utmost good. The postaJ scvings'battka
•r* not constlrated for purpose of
creating competition with other banks.
The rate of Interest upWdeposits to
-which they wdoW bo llmitetf would bo
so small as to prevent tneir drawing
deposits away from other banks.
I believe thera to be necessary In otv
der to offer a proper Inducement to
thrift and saving to a great many
people of small means who do not
now have banking facilities and to
whom such a system would offer an
opportunity for the accumlation of cap
ital. They will furnish a satisfactory
substitute, based on sound principle
and actual successful trial in nearly
all the countries of the world, for the
system of government guaranty of
deposits now being adopted in several
western states which, with deference
to those who advocate it, seems to me
to have in it the seeds of demoraliza
tion to conservative banking and cer
tain financial disaster.
The question of how the money de
posited In postal savings banks shall
be invested is not free from difficulty,
but I believe that a satisfactory pro
vision for this purpose was Inserted as
an amendment to the bill considered
by the senate at its last session. It
has been proposed to delay the consid
eration of legislation establishing a
postal savings bank until after the re
port of the monetary commission. This
report is likely to be delayed, and prop
erly so, because of the necessity for
careful deliberation and close Inves
tigation. I do not see why the one
should be tied up with the other. It
is understood that the monetary com
mission have looked into the systems
of banking which now prevail abroad
and have found that by a control there
exercised in respect to reserves and
the rates of exchange by some central
authority panics are avoided. It is
not apparent that a system of postal
savings banks would in any way inter
fere with a change to such a system
here. Certainly in most of the coun
tries in Europe, where control is thus
exercised by a central authority, postal
savings banks exist and are not thought
to be inconsistent With a proper finan
cial and banking system.
SHIP SUBSIDY URGED.
Needed to Aid In the Expuuioa of
American Trade.
Following the course of my distin
guished predecessor. I earnestly rec
ommend to congress the consideration
and passage of a ship subsidy bill look
ing to the establishment of lines be
tween our Atlantic seaboard and the
eastern coast of South America as
well as lines from the west coast of
the United States to South America,
China, Japan and,the Philippines. The
profits on foreign mails are perhaps a
sufficient measure of the expenditures
which might first be tentatively ap
plied to this method of Inducing Amer
idan capital to undertake the establish
ment of American lines of steamships
in those directions in which we' now
It appears that the average distance of our trade. A bill of this character
has once passed the house and more
than once passed the senate, and I
hope that at this session a bill framed
on the same lines and with the same
purposes may become a law.
Interior Department—New Mexico and
Arizona.
The successful party In the last elec
tion in its national platform declared
in favor of the admission as separate
states of New Mexico and Arizona,
and I recommend that legislation ap
propriate to this end be adopted. I
mg(it
A great saving might be made. feated by popular vote means shall be
amounting to much more than half of
the loss, by imposing upon magazines
and periodicals a higher rate of post
age. They are much heavier than
newspapers and contain a much high
or proportion of advertising to reading
matter, and the average distance of
their transportation is three and
naif times as great.
The total deficit for the last fiscal
year in the postoffice department
amounted to $17,500,000. The branches
of its business which it did at a loss
were the second class mail service, in
which the loss, as already said, was
463.000,000. and the free rural delivery,
in which the loss was $28,000,000.
These losses were in part offset by the
profits of letter postage and other
sources of income. It would seem
wise to reduce the loss upon second
class mall matter, at least to the ex
tent of preventing a deficit In the total
operations Of the postoffice.
that «,„, be exercised
in the preparation of the legislation af
fecting each territory to secure delib
eration in the selection of persons as
members of the convention to draft a
constitution for the incoming state,
and I earnestly advise that such con
stitution after adoption by the conven
tion shall be submitted to the people of
the territory for their approval at an
election In which the sole issue shall
be the merits of the proposed consti
tution, and If the constitution is de-
provided in the enabling act for a new
convention and the drafting of a new
constitution. I think it vital that the
issue as to the merits of the constitu
tion should not be mixed up with the
selection of state officers and that no
election of state officers should be had
a until after the constitution has been
fully approved and finally settled upon.
Alaska.
With respect to the territory of Alas
ka, I recommend legislation which
shall provide for the appointment by
the president of a governor and also
of an executive council, the members
of which shall daring then* term of
office reside in the territory and which
Shall have legislative powers sufficient
to enable It to give to the territory lo
cal laws adapted toIts present growth.
I strongly' deprecate legislation looking
to the election of a territorial legisla
ture in that vast district The lack of
permanence of residence of a large
part of the present population and the
small nianber pf the people who either
permanently or\te#po$tiy resMe'ln
the district as coibparea with fta vast
expanse and ihe variety of tho inter
ests that have to be subserved make it
altogether unfitting^ in my lodgment,
to provide for a popular election of a
legislative body. Tb» present system
Is not adequate and does not tnrnlsh
the character of local control tiat
ought to be there. The only compro
mise it seems to me which may gtro
headed local legislation and secure a
conservative government Is. the* one I
