A Ringing Letter.
Washington, D. March 18—
Senator La Follette sent the follow
ing letter to the Progressives of
North Dakota. It is the only cl ar
cut and definite statement upon the
issues of the campaign made by any
of the candidates.
An Open Letter to the Progressives
of North Dakota:
In twenty-five years of political
struggle, I have found one great is
sue overshadowing and including all
others—The Encroachment of the
Powerful Few on the Rights of the
Many. All the issues of today are
but phases of this one great ques
tion. How shall the individual, the
farmer, the worker, and all those who
pay tribute, be set free from the un
just exactions of the tariff, the rail
roads, the money power, and other
forms of oppression by special in
terests?
The combinations have unlawfully
taken possession of the whole coun
try. They control transportation,
manufacturing, mining, capital and
credit, the market price of every
thing the farmer sells, the wages of
men, women and children in the fac
tories and mines, and the market
price of everything the consumer
must buy. They have achieved this
control,—except as to a few of the
older trusts,—almost entirely under
the last two administrations, notwith
standing the prosecutions for which
so much has been claimed.
When Roosevelt became President,
the total amount of the stock and
bond issue of all combinations and
trusts, including the railways then in
combination, was only $3,784,000,
000. When he turned the country
over to Taft, whom he had selected
as his successor, the total capitaliza
tion of the trusts and combinations
amounted to the enormous sum of
$31,672,000,000, more than 70 per
cent of which was water. Prices were
put up on transportation, and on the
products of the mines and factories
to pay interest and dividends on this
fraudulent capitalization.
The organization of these combin
dtions in transportation, mining,
manufacturing, money, credit, and
the control of the markets, was a
criminal conspiracy. It was in viola
tion of the common law, and federal
statute. It was subject to punish
ment by both fine and imprisonment.
Moreover, under the orovisions of the
statute every such combination could
have been enjoined, and a violation
of such injunctive federal statute
specifically made it the duty of the
government to execute the law.
If, in the earlier stages of trust
formation, the Executive had used
all the power of this great govern
ment to enforce the Anti-Trust Law,
it would have saved the people the
payment of hundreds of millions of
dollars wrongfully taken from them
in excessive transportation rates and
in exhorbitant trust prices which they
have had to pay for the necessaries
of life. Had this been done before
these combined monopolies acquired
^uch absolute mastery, the people
would not now be confronted with
this momentous question: Are these
trusts and combinations stronger
than the government itself That is
the supreme issue. Can the people
free themselves from this power?
Can the unjust burden of fraudulent
••apitalization be lifted from them?
The trusts and combinations, the
railroads, the steel trust, the coal
trust, all are scheming to secure
some action by the government which
will legalize their proceedings and
sanction their fictitious capitaliza
tion. The situation is critical. It
may be expected from the attitude
of the Supreme Court as shown in
the Standard Oil and Tobacco cases,
that any act on the part of the exec
utive or the legislative branch of
government, giving countenance to a
trust or combination will be constru
ed as an approval of the thousands
of millions of watered stocks and
bonds issued, and will fasten upon
the people for all time the specula
tive capitalization of our public ser
vice and business corporations.
The time is at hand to declare
for a statute which shall make it
everlastingly impossible for any
president, or any congress, or any
court, to legalize spurious capitali
zation as a basis of extortionate
prices.
The Progressive Republican plat
form must take advance ground up
on this question. It must declare
for the speedy abolition of all priv
ilege. It must deal rationally but firm
ly with the complex problems which
have been permitted to develop main
ly in the last dozen years. It must
be to the last degree a constructive
platform.
But a platform, however strong
and progressive, is not enough. For
example, the platform of 1908 was
a plain declaration for a revision of
the tariff on the basis of the diff r
ence in the cost of production. Re
vision in compliance with that pledge
would have enormously reduced the
Dingley duties, but the President
elected on that platform, approved
the Payne-Aldrich bill, increasing
the Dingley duties.
The lesson is obvious. Its teaching
must not be forgotten. The citizen
should ask what the candidate has
actually done toward solving the
Droblems that confront us whether
his course of action gives assurance
of profound conviction whether he
is equipped with patience, determin
ation and experience to deal with
these problems, constructively, in
the public interest.
In this spirit I ask you to consider
my candidacy.
I shall not undertake, within the
compass of this letter, to discuss the
A ^m
105, 5th St.
issues, or indeed to more than sug
gest my position upon the vitally im
portant ones.
I am opposed to ship subsidies,
which, once entrenched, will become
another corrupting influence in our
'politics.
I am opposed to further extrava
gance, on the advice of interested
persons only, in building battleships
and political navy yards, and favor
an unprejudiced commission to in
vestigate and report what is required
in the way of national defense.
I am opposed to the dollar diplom
acy which has reduced our State De
partment from its high place as a
kindly intermediary of defenseless
nations, into a trading outpost for
Wall Street interests, aiming to ex
ploit those who should be our friends.
I am opposed to the Aldrich cur
rency scheme, which, under the
guise of providing elasticity to our
currency system and relieving mone
tary conditions, is in reality a means
of concentration of the currency and
the credits of the United States un
der a fifty-year franchise into those
hands which have already secured
control of the banking and insurance
resources of the country.
I favor a policy of government
ownership and operation of Alaskan
railroads and coal mines, and of an
Alaskan steamship line by way of
Pacific ports through Panama to
New York.
I was opposed to the Canadian
Reciprocity Agreement when Presi-

The Parcels Post
Government ownership of express
companies and government operation

the public
The reasonable valuation of the
physical property of railroads, just
ly inventoried and determined, as the
basis for fixing rates, and the ex
tension of the powers and the ad
ministrative control of the Inter
state Commerce Commission.
I would have the nation know how
much of the $18,000,000,000 capital
ization was contributed by those who
own the railroads, and how much
by the people themselves.
I believe in the creation of a com
mission, with power to investigate
and ascertain the illegal acts of all
trusts and combinations, and with
power to ascertain the reasonable
valuation,—not the monoply valu-i
dtion,—of the physical properties of
the great monopolies, beginning with
the natural resources, such as coal,
oil, and iron in the creation of a
tariff commission of experts clothed
with real power to determine the
valuation of all the elements of pro
duction, costs and profits, and in the
••eduction of tariff rates to the ascer
'tained difference between the labor
in this country and abroad. Instead
of each of these government com
missions investigating the same facts
independently, I believe it would be
practical for a single board of ex
pert accountants, statisticians, eco
nomists, and engineers to be empow
ered to get the facts, not for the con
fidential use of the President or the
Departments, but for Congress and
the public.
