The president next considers busi? ness conditions, which he finds highly satisfactory, tie continues: The tremendous and highly complex Industrial development which went on with ever accelerated rapidity during the latter half of the nineteenth cen? tury brings us face to face at the be? ginning of the twentieth with very serious social problems. The old laws and the old customs which had almost the binding force of law were once quite sufficient to regulate tlie ac? cumulation and distribution of wealth. Since the Industrial changes which have so enormously Increased the pro? ductive power of mankind they are no longer sufficient. Trade Coatblnatloaa. Tbe growth of cities has gone on be? yond comparison faster than tbe growth of tbe country, and tbe up? building of the great Industrial centers has meant a stnrtllng Increase not merely in the aggregate of wealth, but In the nunilier of very large Individual and especially of very large corporal? fortunes. The creation of these great corporate fo:,unes has not been due to tbe tariff nor to any other govern? mental action, but to natural causee In tbe business world, operating In oth? er countries as they operate In our own.
