"Corporations need regulation; hut we must not for get there are no troubles about cor porations where the poverty of the country Is such It Is not worth while to form corporations. There are no diffi culties regulating railroads where tho resources are so few It does not pay to build railroads. The growth of cor porations means the growth of indus trial fortunes. "Growth of wealth has sonic very unfortunate accompaniments, but It stems to me the worst damage the people of wealth can do the rest of us Is the uwukenlng In our breasts of either the mean vice of worshipping mere wealth, or viewing It with ran corous envy and hatred of the man of wealth merely because he is wealthy. The corporation is a creature of the state, and should be held account able to its sovereignty, and this ac countability should be real, not sham Therefore, In my Judgment corpora tions should be held accountable to federal Jurisdiction. Hut we should not strive to limit nor to prevent cor porate, activity." He then discussed cotton, which led him to the Chinese boycott. He said we mu by a" mean exclude the j Chinese coolie class in order to protect the labor of thla country, particularly on the Pacific coast; but we must so regulate the laws as to admit students and professional ami educated men.
