Few Actresses Are Real Mothers,
Be Pictured With Their Babes
President of Pennsylvania Rail
road Pleads for Cessation
Government Friendly to Cor
porations That Obey Law
but Bound by Pledges
[Special Dispatch to The Call] \u25a0
President McCrea.of the Penn
sylvania railroad interrupted
President Taft's work on his message
today long enough to discuss legis
lation affecting business .'throughout
the country. *As he was leavingvthe
White House, McCre'a said that ' he
had not discussed with Taft~any fea
tures of the forthcoming -
McCrea told the president that coin
iintied "agitation would endanger the
interests of the country. There Was a
Tiope. he said, that the' country. "-might
be given a rest. McCrea pointed out
that the Pennsylvania railroad had just
given,- an order for 150,000 tons .of
fcteei rails'. If there was any assur
ance that there would be no further
jtgitatlon, ether railroads, would follow
that lead.
President Rewards Firm
Taft. Is -.not", worrying about the fu
ture ef the country and neither James
J. Hill's xlsit nor JtfcCrea's will move
hsra one inch from the course he Is pur
«.alLsr.- Hi !e .GAtfr.miiied,to-jlo all <i»
his power to fulfill the pledges of the
repub'.lcan national platform.
\u25a0\nth regard to the trusts and the
Tallroads T.ift has not changed, nor
will he change his original policy. From
f i many interests have come demands for
a cessation of hostilities. Taft takes i
the position that the government Is
friendly, rather than hostile, to cor
porations that obey the law. His In
structions to Attorney General Wicker
sham are to investigate thoroughly the
evidences of infractions of the law be
fore filing any suits. The department
of justice mukes certain that there is
enough evidence to warrant a convic-
Ktion before beginning proceedings.
Corporations in Opposition
One of the causes of excitement
among railroad men Is the report that
Taft intends to urge In his rrfessage
the passage of the federal incorpora
tion law. It was said today that at
torneys for the Interests under the
control of J. Pierpont Morgan had
framed a federal corporation act of
th^ir ow^i which may be introduced
Jnto congress in opposition to- the ad
jninistration measure.
Taft. is aware of the nature of this
outside bill, but has refused to ap
prove it. insisting on urging the pas
sage of the administration measure,
which is more -radical than the one
desired by the corporations.
To none of the gloomy predictions
from Wall street is the president pay-
Ing the slightest attention. Some of
the letters received predict dire hap
f penings if Taft persists in urging new
?aw on this or the next congress.
Confident of Prosperity
Secretary of the Treasury McVeagh,.
who was with the president some time
today, said that the government wag
rot worry ng about rumors of depres
sions in business,
"So far as the financial situation of
th« country is concerned it is abso
lutely Bound," he said. "I have abso
lutely no apprehension of any depres
Secretary Wilson.. of the department
of agriculture, also spent considerable
time with the president, and later
jnade the following statement:
"There n no better exponent of the
prosperity of our country than the fact
that we have abundant crops and em
ployment for labor along all lines, In-,
surlng a demand for those crops. All
considerations Justify the conclusion
that the agricultural condition of the
country is prosperous today and prom
ising for the future."
