CORPORATIONS. ORGANIZED I.AROH \R IMPOR TANT IN IMH'STKIAL LIFE AH ORGANIZED LABOR. Buffalo. N. Y.. Oct. 11.—•‘Govern ment Control of Corporations" was the subject which Commissioner / tnes H. Garfield. of tho bureau of cnr|K>rattona and Industries of the department of commerce and labor, chose for his address before the West minister Club last night. Mr. Garfield said that organised labor was Just as important a part of the industrial system as wus or ganised capital, and that organised labor was now goiug through the same conditions which organised cap ital had gone through for fifty years. He said that he had found among the leaders as well Hs the rank and ftl« of organized labor, men who represented the highest type of American citizenship, and that be cause now and then a dishonest or unprincipled man was found among them It was nnfulr to criticize all organized labor from the same view point. M. Oarfleld dealt at considerable length with the new rnte bill, which, he said, would throw light on the corporate interests. It is now up to the government, he said to see that experts are hired who will be uble to go over the hooks of the rail road companies—men who will be able to trace every penny—and who will be able to tell when a rebate is given, no matter In what form It Is given. "Under this system the managers will be afraid to give rebates." he said. Continuing, he said the situa tion hnd simmered down to where It was simply a question of the govern ment controlling the corporations or the corporations controlling the gov ernment. "Rich men are good to have, hut. above all, wre want men who have made their money honestly and not by financial Jugglery and deceit. We don’t want these sort of men, even though they do build monuments. They ure the men who look upon life as the seeking of more money. I The problem of capital und labor will not be solved by these men.” Mr. arfleld said that the benefit of government regulation was shown In our national banking system. He admitted, however that there could bo some inprovements in that. p It is claimed by some diamond Im porters that one-half of the Jewels brought into this country are smug gled. Another estimate pluces the annual loss to the government thfpegh undetected smuggling at $2,000,000.
