THE WILMINGTON MESSENGER, FRIDAY AUGUST 23, 1907.
A Time for Self Control.
Attompv fiATipral Bonarvarte is still
talking and President Roosevelt and
Secretary' Taft are to make speeciiea
this week, of which more or less trust
worthy forecasts are allowed to leak
out by somebody. Mr. Bonaparte is
reported as having already said that
1f complaints are made that his de
partment "proposes to punish promi
nent and wealthy men or corporations
"having vast amounts of capital and
engaged in very extensive business,
where these are shown to have been
wilful and persistent lawbreakers m
a great scale and with grave injury
to the purposes of the law " why then
"the complaints are well founded for
thU is "nreciselv what the department
xf justice is trying to do," and what
it will continue trying to do so
long as he is at the head. The most
definite forecast of what rVesideiit
Roosf velt is going to say at tne Prov
Incetown celebration tomorrow comos
by way of London. The Washington
correspondent of the Daliy Mail has
it "from the highest authority that
Mr. Roosevelt has no intention of re-
reating from the position he has
taken." On the contrary, he says,
the president will reiterate his inten
tion of pursuing the trusts that he
thinks have broken the laws," and
he will "consider what additional
legislation is necessary to enforce his
views." He is not "alarmed in the
slightest at the slump in TVall street
but beleves that an effort is being
;uade by large inters-ts to frighten
him into a more con;ei vative oolicy"
How near this rounuabout forecast
comes to the mark we shall know after
the speech has been delivered.
Secretary Taft will address the Buck
eye Republican Club at Columbus to
day, and what purports to be the gist
of his speech has already been publish
ed as coming from "intimate friends
of the secretary," who are assumed to
.know what he is going to say. Whet.r
they know or not they may know
enough about his views on the subjects
referred to to feel sure that "those
are his sentiments." According to this
tale, which awaits verification today,
the secretary of war, who is regarded
ty many as the most probable success
or of President Roosevelt, "will ex
plain, defend and unequivocally in
drse every action that has been taken
iby the administration toward the cou
ftrol and regulation of railroad corpor-
at ions and trust." More than that, he
will favor a further strengthening of
the interstate commerce law by giving
the commission "power to classify
merchandise for rate fixing," prohibit
ing the issue of new stock or bonds
"without certification from the com
mission that the proceeds are to be de
voted to n 1 Airif i m -1 to rnilrnorl niicriisn
such as betterments of road and
equipments,1' and forbidding railroads
engaged In interstate commerce to
' purchase stock in competing lines.
He will also favor tariff revision, in
heritance tax and an effort to secure a
new simreme eonrt dpeisinn nn t1
'. income tax question, and will deny
that President Roosevelt is responsible
for the hostile attitude of states to
ward railroads or for the "slump in
Wall street," and will ' charge that the
-yJroads brought it on themselves as
retaliation for their torraor illegal
TCnw we are not going to assume that
these forecasts are correct, oi that
those furnishing them know before
hand what is going tt. he said, but
there is reason to believe that they
-reflect more or less clearly the known
.attitude of the persons who are to
speak. There is no reason to s appose
that the admit istration has taken
-alarm, or is to retreat from its position
or will abandon the policyof strength
ening the laws againsc corporate
abuses and seeing that they are en
forced, for there is no reason why
it should do anything of the kind. As
Sir. Bonaparte is reported as saying in
"his futerview, "Business men ought to
wish to have the lavr. strictly and im
partially enforced," for if this is done
"everybody knows what he can do
and what he cannot and everybody has
a fair field and no favor." Now
the agitators and the agitated might
as well turn their thoughts away from
WIlttL UlC ilUUUlusuauuu
going to do, and give more consider
ation to the actual situatioa instead of
one which they imagine.
The policy of the administration has
Tjeen in the main right, and no doubt
It will be persisted in. That might as
twell be accepted and calculations re
conciled with it for there is no danger
ol radical action which will make
matters worse and bring about disas
ter. The state of mind produced by
vthe successive breaks in stocks is
largely morbid. It attributes effects
: to the wrong causes and magnifies
and distorts the perils of the situatioa
but a state of mind may in itself be
dangerous and it has a tendency to
' .spread and intensify. It is desirable
mow to do everything possible to re
store equanimity, to judge of condition
.-fialmly and deal with them conserv
ative'. Instead of producing "scares'"
or increasing them there should be a
; general effort to get them over and i.o
prevent them. A nervous and hyster
ical conditions needs to be dealt with
-calmly and firmly, but considerately
"The banks have a heavy responsibility
-and should give support to confidence
so far as possible. The inflation is out
of most stock values and the retribu-
"tion for past errors in the market has
pretty well fwrought its effect What
la needed now is to refrain a white
trom agitation and get over this "at
tack of nerves." Journal of Commerce

S- S. S. is recog-nized everywhere not only as the best of all blood puri
fiers and the greatest of all tonics, but the one medicine that can hi taken
- :th absolute safety by everyone. Young or old, those in robust health, or
'. ase whose systems are delicate and run-down, may use it with the same
;r od results, and equally with out fear of any unpleasant or injurious after
"cts. Next in importance to removing the cause of any disease is the
ldition in which the system is left after a course of medical treatment.
.! ;d kiines containing mercury, potash or other strong mineral ingredients
p' m do permanent injury by eating out the delicate lining and tissues of j
; stomach, producing chronic Dyspepsia, unfavorably affecting the bowels.
I so deranging the system otherwise, that even if the original disease had
n removed from the system it is left in such a weakened and deranged
o iditiorr that the health is permanently impaired. S.. S. S. enjoys the dis
t ': ction of being the only blood medicine on the market that does not contain
uner. t ingredient ot some Kind, it is made entirely ot the healing, cleans
extracts and juices of roots, herbs and barks gathered directly from the
osts and fields of nature, under our own supervision, and when they reach
r laboratory contain all their original valuable tonic and blood purifying
properties. We ofTer a reward of $1,000 for proof that S. S S. contains a
particle of mineral in any form. Being made entirely from these vegetable
ingredients S. S. S. is absolutely harmless to the system, and while curing
disease adds health and strength to every part of the body. S. S. S. cures
Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula, Sores and Ulcers, Skin Diseases, Contagious
Blood Poison, and all other blood troubles by removing the cause and sup
plying the circulation with health-giving and strength-producing qualities.
