It has no doubt been observed by every man who has kept up with the argu
ments and assertions of the fusion campaign orators that "imperialism'" and "mil
itarism" ate no longer "paramount" ispues. They have been relegated to the
same oblivion into which the silver issue has fallen. For the past several weeks
no fusion orator on the Pacific coast has more than barely referred to such a
thing as "imperialism," "militarism" or "expansion '' They have, however,
howled long aud loud about trusts. Here is the democratic and populistic and
fusionistic and republican records on trusts in Congress only last Juue:
The rulings of the supreme court having shown that, as the constitution now
standH, congress can only regulate trusts engaged in interstate commerce, the fol
lowing amendment was introduced in the house of representatives and pressed to
a vote on June 1:
Section 1. All power* conferred by this artic'e shall extern! to the several states, the ter
ritories the District of Columbia, and all territory under the sovereignty" and subject to the
jurisdiction of the United States.
Section 2. 'Congress shall have power to define, regulate, control, prohibit or dinpolve
trusts, monopolies <»r combinations, whether existing in the form of a combination or other
wise. The several states may continue to exerciae such power iv any manner not in conflict
with the laws of the United States."
.Section 8 Congress shall have power to enforce the provisions of thin article by appro
priate legislation.
The clause saving all rights of states was inserted in the hope of getting states
rights democrats to rapport the amendment. -Nevertheless the vote stoocf 148 re
uublicana for and 130 democrats and populists against, and the measure failed of
the necessary two-thirds majority.
Loudly as the democrats talked, when it came to a vote they echoed Bryan's
declaration ;it the Chicago conference: "We have not met here to destroy the

'Tluneed in a gulf of deep despair,
Ye wretched sinners lie."
These words were used by William Jennings Bryan in his remarks before the
Chicago conference on trusts, September l(i, 1899. They are as applicable to <hp
present story a* when he quoted ihetii.
Few instances of artful dodging by men high iv politics equal Bryan's flon on
the trust question. A little over a year ago he attended the Chicago confer Wop
on trusts. On September 16, 1599, he made a speech. It is printed in full in t I
official record of the debated published by the Civic Federation of Chicago ni^s
572-586. ' ' o te
"Now this is a conference. We have not met here to destroy the trusts "
So said Mr. Bryan in the course of his speech September 10 \ssuredlv so
There was nothing m Mr. Bryan's speech which looked toward destroying all trn*t*
He merely proposed regulation. With that end in view he advocated substir.'
tially the same policy that was proposd in congress a few months later by Hip i-p
publicans, to-wit: .Strengthening the federal power over trusts. He said
"The gentleman suggests that it is a diffkult thing to eet two.thirHa nf i»*i. v
favor Kcfa an amendment. That ifl true; it is a difficult thin?. but i'the veil I^7^°
stroy the trusts they can control two-thirds of both houses and throe fourths of ?hI < >
But what is the alternative? Sit down and do nothing?" iourtns of the states.
The principal change desired by Bryan at that time was presented by him in
these terms: •' *" lv
"That the federal government has, or should have, the right to impose such restrictions
m congress may think necessary upon every corporation which does business outside of the
at ite in which it was organized. mv" ot me
No destruction there. Mr. Bryan said later:
"I am not sure that the constitution would prohibit such an act of congress as I suggest."
Not certain even as to the power to regulate.
The republicans, however, were sure that there was no such authority in H IP
constitution, and that without it no effective Jaw could be passed They nrnmwS
there ore, to amend the constitution that the precise thing pretendedly favored by
Mr. Bryan might be done, not in an uncertain or doubtful wav with evervthinfr
unsettled until a case could be carried to the supreme court, but by bufldiS on I
so id bas.s from the beginning. Then the Bryanites in congress cast an almost
solid vote against the republican proposition and defeated it. And ever B,?n£ S
