Best Speeches on Bate BUI Made

*i^S Knox's Victories. ."'-V.v
Bvcahuc Times Special Service.
Washington, D. C., May 16.—The best
speeches on the rate bill have been
made under the 15-minute rule. 'That
..^undoubtedly is. why senators have
thrown so much light during the per
iod ot limited debate.'
Senator Fpraker, without question,
tji threw a strong ray on the railroad
abuse situation when he Indicated the
large number ot Important suits that
have been won by the government un
der the Elkins rebate law. He might
have gone a step further and pointed
out that until Senator Knox became
attorney general practically all the
.£ laws intended to curb combinations
.1. of capital were dead letters. Knox
breathed the breath of lfte into the
Sherman anti-trust statue. The Knight
or sugar trust case appeared to have
f-r killed it His immediate predecessors
in office regarded that case as dispos
ing of the anti-trust laws.
And yet the Pittsburg man took it
up and-won the greatest case of tbim
all when he persuaded the supreme
court that the Northern Securities
-. company was a violation of the sta
tutes enacted to prevent restraint of
traffic between the states.
Nothing stands oul clearer now to
persons who have the intelligence to
vote the significance ot thingB than
that Knox was an active, not passive,
officer of the government. Instead of
taking it for granted that the anti-
combination statutes were dead letters
Knox proceeded upon the assumption
that it was his duty to show that what
congress had done was a practicable
thing. He .showed it in the case, al
ready mentioned, in the packing liouse
products case, ujpon which proceedings
against the beef trust have been found
ed. and in the anthracite coal case,
in which the supreme court compelled
the production of books of the coal
Some of the cases were brought
under the rebate case and some under
the anti-trust statute. For the pur
pose of showing where credit is due
in the "trust-busting" business the
two statutes may be considered as one.
They are both aimed to prevent and
punish the evils growing out of the
misuse of great wealth. Before Knox
came into office the Addystoue pipe
case had been won, bnt it was such a
clear violation of the anti-trust law
that there was no chance of losing it.
The next great case was against -the
sugar trust. In that the court decided
that inasmuch as the sugar made by
the trust had not actually passed in
7 to the channels of inter-state com
merce there had been no violation of
the federal statute. The federal gov
ernment has no authority of operations
wholly within one state, so the trust,
on an. ill-advised action, went free.
Parenthetically it may be observed
that the anti-trust and inter-state com
merce statutes had been invoked, and
successfully, too, against labor organ
izations. Debs went to Jail for dis
regarding them. He and his associates
are the only ones that suffer' the
stigma of having suffered incarcera
tion for violating injunctions based up
on them. Bnt notwithstanding their
imprisonment the assertion that the
pipe case fs the only one won by the
government before the advent of Knox
is substantially true.
With the advent of Knox came anew
era. He put life into the prosecu
tions and ever since his leaving office
his successor has been proceeding
along lines laid down by the Pennsyi
vanian. The fact that some of them
have not been pushed to as fine con
clusions as that which resulted in the
trial of the Northern Securities case is
nothing against the record of the pres
ent junior senator. A reasonable ex
planation can be thought of without
And yet so perverse are folks that
instead of Knox getting credit for what
he accomplished as to actual cases
and the laying out of lines for the
guidance of his successors he gets
very little credit for it or uiy part of
it. The very reverse is true. He is
called a railroad, lawyer and every
thing he haB dope so far in the rate
bill fight has been attributed to un
worthy motives. The junior senator
is fully, capable of taking care ot him
self, but even after a superficial view
of the matter it does seem that he is
getting about as rough a deal as was
ever prepared for any man.
Even a cursory look at his record
shows that he was the busiest man the
country has recently had in office of
attorney generail. He was the pioneer
in anti-trust prosecutions that amount
to any thing in bringing the Northern
Securities case. He conducted the
legal side of the purchase of the Pan
ama canal.' He, made the safety ap
pliance law ot effect Before he be
came attorney general the railroads
paid no attention to the law requir
ing them to guard the lives apd limbs
of their employers.
The peonage cases in the south,
brought by him, made a neglected
statute a vital force, in the south. He
drew the statutes that provide for the
expenditing of anti-trust cases in the
courts and procured the extradition of
Greene and Gaynor after all his as
sociates, and the British and Canadian
lawyers Whom he hired, told him that
he could not make his propositions
That case is so remarkable that it
is a wonder that no more comment
has been made on it. Greene and Gay
nor, both rich and able to hire the
best lawyers in the English-speaking
world, appeared to be safely lodged in
Canada, free from t&e arm of Ameri
can law. Knox started after them.
He got them, but. It was a long way
he traveled to get them back to Sa
vannah for trial and conviction. He
had to take the case through all the
Canadian courts up to the privy coun
cil of Great Britain. It is the first
and only time that the American gov
ernment has pursued a fugitive from
justice to that tribunal. In the fiffit
place, it required a lot of nerve to
stand upi before the' Canadian lawyer
whotaa he had hired and tell him that
he did hot.know the law of the BritlBh
Empire when he said that Greene and
Gayner could not t»e brought back.
In the secdnd place, it was a nervy
thing to practically accupe a member
of the Dominion government, of brib
ery, as he had to do In pursing the
fugitives through the mates of Can
adian practice. And finally lt was a
rare exhibition of confidence In his
own powers^ to discover 'what the law/
was .to carry the case to the privy
council after defeat, and delay had
b^en the result In the lower courts
