Washington April 2President
Ilooaerelt has written a latter to the
president pf the Illinois Manufactur

lion of that organization to peak at
Springfield on tho railroad situation
The president says It would be a
waste of time for him to accept the
Invitation because ho would only re
peat what ho has already said In pub
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT
He addresses and messages to con
gress He makes It clear that ho la In
favor of government supervision of
railroads believing that It will bo
beneficial both to tho corporations and
the public
Ho again points out tho danger of
overcapitalization and expresses tho
hope that proper laws will bo enacted
to remedy this ovll
Tho president declares with ompha
sis that ho Is not making war on tho
railroads but says that when ho asks
for a square deal ho means a square
dealRecent developments ho says have
only served to convince him that his
previous utterances with referenco to
railroads and other corporations ate
correct Ho urges that additional
power be given the Interstate com
merce commission and Justifies tho
new interstate commerco law
