TAFT’S MESSAGE
GOESTOSOLONS
Recommendations ot President
Are Well Received.
COMMERCE COURT IS URGEO
Many Important Matters Are Presented
on Some of Which Action is Ex
pected to Be Deferred—Document
is Specific in its Demands Good
Trusts Do Not Exist is Inference
from Language Used.
President Taft’s special message on
the subject of further legislation deal
ing with trusts and railroads nas been
presented to congress.
On the whole the message was well
received. There is a pretty general
belief in congress that while there is
a good show for legislation amending
the interstate commerce law along the
lines recommended, the president’?
proposal of a law for the federal in
corporation of interstate corporations
is not likelv to be acted on at the
present session.
The longest step forward taken by
the president is his recommendation
that congress enact a general law pro
viding “For the formation of corpora
tions to engage in trade and commerce
among the states and with foreign na
tions, protecting them from undue in
terference by the states and regulating
their activities so as to prevent the
recurrence under national auspices of
those abuses which have arisen under
state control.”
He would have such a law provide
that such corporations should issue
stock only to an amount for which
each has been paid, or if issued for
property, to have the federal govern
ment pass on its issue. He would re
quire also that such corporations shall
file complete reports of cneir opera
tions with the department of commerce
and labor.
The first part of the message is de
voted to recommendations for amend
ing the interstate commerce law'.
These recommendations and the argu
ments presented are in accord with
ideas advanced by the president in his
Des Moines speech last September, and
t.he speech delivered by Attorney Gen
eral Wickersham at Kansas City, Nov.
19.
Important recommendations of the
message is for the creation of a Unit
ed States court of commerce to hear
appeals from decisions of the interstate
commerce commission; that the inter
state commerce commission he em
powered to investigate alleged exces
sive rates made by railroad companies
of its own initiative without waiting
for complaint to be filed; giving ship
pers the right to demand a statement
from any railroad of the through rate
on any shipment and imposing a fine
for failure to comply or for misin
formation; permitting the commission
to postpone for sixty days the time
within which an announced rate is tu
become effective and prohibiting a
railroad company from issuing capital
stock without previous payment for it
of not less than the par value or is
suing bonds or other obligations except:
one year promissory notes without the
previous payment of not less than the
par value of such bonds or the market
value as ascertained by the interstate
commerce commission.
Several times in the course of the
message the president refers to planks
of the Republican party’s nation a.
platform of 190 Sand indicates his in
tention of carrying out the pledges con
tained in the platform.
In that part of the message relating
to the anti-trust law r his general ar
gument is that the United States su
preme court has construed the law in
such a way as to render unnecessary
any legislation to exempt from prose
cution interstate business combinations
which do not violate the spirit of the
law' through having an undue restraint
on trade.
The president let it he known that
it is his purpose to have the aepaie
menf of justice make an investigation
“with respect to which there is any
reasonable ground for suspicion that
they have been organized for a pur
pose and are conducting business on
a plan which is in violation of the
anti-trust law'.” |
One of the interesting features of
the message is his discussion of “good
trusts" and “bad trusts.” An infer
ence from his remarks is that there
is no such thing as a good trust.
J. D. BENEDICT SUSPENDED
Secretary Ballinger Issues Order
Embraces Three Supervisors.
Secretary Ballinger has suspended
John D. Benedict, superintendent of
the Indian schools of the Five Civilized
Tribes, with headquarters at Musko
gee, Okla., and the following Indian
school supervisors:
Calvin Bullard, Choctaw school;
Frederick J. Umpholiz, Chickasaw
school; Walter Falwell, Creek school.
Charges filed against Superintendent
Benedict and his subordinates are that
he permitted the schools to fall into a
disgraceful condition; that “super
visors neglected their duties in the en
forcement of school contracts.” and
that Superintendent Benedict was
“connected with certain business in
terests in Oklahoma which have more
or less business with the Indians,
which is wholly incompatible with his
service as superintendent.” An in
vestigation of the charges will be or
dered. ' T

N. J., to decide who was to commit
the crime, and details relating to
Gaetano Bresci, the assassin, which he
claims he heard from a fellow convict.

a confirmation of the story which
likely will lead to the arrest of Bresci’s
accomplices.

CHIEF FORESTER
LOSESHISOFFICE
Letter of Mot, Read in Sen
ate, Causes His Dismissal
SHAW AND PRICE ALSO OUSTED
“By Your Own Conduct You Have De
stroyed Your Usefulness to the Gov
ernment and it Now Becomes My
Duty to Remove You from Your Of
fice as Forester,” Writes President.
After a cabinet, meeting, President
Taft caused the announcement to
be made that he had directed
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson to dis
miss Gifford Pinchot from the office of
forester of the agriculture department.
GIFFORD PINCHOT.
Later on it was made known that Sec
retary Wilson in accordance with a de
cision of ti e president and the cab
inet had dismissed Overton W. Price,
associate forester, and Mr. Pinchot’s
chief assistant, and Alexander C.
Shaw, assistant law officer of the for
est service.
The action of the president on the
eve of the congressional investigation
into the allegations and insinuations
against Secretary of the Interior Bal
linger’s conduct of the policy of con
serving natural resources is going to
cause a sensation. Its political effects
according to opinion here may be far
reaching.
Coupled with the dismissal of Pinchot
was the significant action of the house
of representatives. The house re
jected that provision of the resolution
which directed Speaker Cannon to
choose the representatives who should
sit on the congressional committee of
inquiry. The Cannon organization was
overturned by a bare majority of three.
Under the resolution, as emended, the
house members of the joint committee
of inquiry will be elected by the nouse
itself.
The decision to dismiss Messers.
Pinchot, Price and Shaw was reached
at a regular session of the cabinet.
Reasons why Mr. Pinchot was to be
removed from the government service
briefly were, that contrary to instruc
tions from Secretary Wilson, Forester
Pinchot bad written a letter to Sena
tor Dolliver defending Price and Shaw
after they had admitted that they ha.d
inspired the magazine and press cam
paign against Secretary Ballinger;
that Pinchot had cast reflections oil
the action of President Taft in direct
ing the dismisslal of Louis R. Glavis
and that Mr. Pinchot had intimate;,,
in the Dolliver letter that without the
magazine and press exploitation of
Price and Shaw the administration
would have allowed fraudulent coal
land claims in Alaska to be patented.
The president’s letter to Mr. Pinchot
closes viz.:
“By your own conduct you have de
stroyed your usefulness as a helpful
subordinate of the government and it
therefore now becomes my duty to di
rect the secretary of agriculture to
remove you from your office as the
forester.”
Secretary Wilson wrote the follow
ing official letter to Mr. Pinchot:
“Department of Agriculture, Jan. 7,
1910. \
“Sir—By direction of the president,
you are hereby removed from your of
fice as forester. You will deliver pos
session of your office affairs belonging
to the government to Mr. Alfred F. Pot
ter, assistant forester.
“Respectfully,
JAMES WILSON.
“Secretary of Agriculture.”
Identical letters were sent to Asso
ciate Forester Price and Law Officer
Shaw by Mr. Wilson.
PORK HIGHEST IN 45 YEARS
Hogs Scarce and Meat Prices Above
Any Since the Civil War.
Pork is more expensive in Chicago
than at any time since the civil war,
when the prices were almost prohibi
tive.
Market reports showed that the hog
supply was 40 per cent less than in
any corresponding period since the
war.
Hogs sold at $8.50 to $8.65, an in
crease of 5 to 15 cents over the high
est prices ever quoted. The retail
price of meat will increase propor
tionately.
