dy falls to do this we will return the

candy, are particularly prompt and
agreeable In action, may be taken at
any time, day or night; do not cause
diarrhoea, nausea, griping, excessive
looseness, or other undesirable effects.
They have a very mild but positive
artion upon the organs with which
they come in oontact, apparently act
ing as a regulative tonic upon the re
laxed muscular coat of the bowel, thus
overcoming weakness, and aiding to
restore the bowels to more vigorous
and healthy activity.
Hexall Orderlies are unsurpassable
and Ideal tor the use of children, old
folks and delicate persons. We can
not too highly recommend them to all
sufferers from any form of constipa
tion and I 'a attendaut evils. That's
vhy we bark our faith In them with
our promlne of money back If they do
not give entire satisfaction. Three
sizes: 12 tblets 10 cents, 36 tablets

full , power and at the same time to
trick them out of it.
"Yet this is precisely what is done
In every case where the state permits
Its representatives, whether on the
bench or in the legislature or in ex
ecutive office, to declare that it has not
the power to right grave social wrongs,
or that any of the officers created by
the people, and rightfully the servants
of the people, can set themselves up
to be the masters of the people. Con
stitution-makers should make it clear
beyond shadow of doubt that the peo
ple in their legislative capacity have
the power to enact Into law any meas
ure they deem necessary for the bet
terment of social and industrial con
dition. ENCOrRAGE HOVEST BCSIKESS.
"I hold that he is the real progres
sive, that he is the genuine champion
of the people, who endeavors to shape
the policy alike of the nation and of
the several states so as to encourage
legitimate and honest business at the
same time that he wars against all
crookedness and injustice and unfair
ness and tyranny in the business world.
This is the reason why I have for so
many years insisted as regards our
national government, that it Is both
futile and mischievous to endeavor to
correct the evils of big business by an
attempt to restore business conditions
as they were in tbe middle of the last
century, before railways and tele
graphs had rendered larger business
organizations both Inevitable and de
sirable. "The effort to restore such condi
tions, and to trust for 'justice soltly to
such proposed restoration, is as fool
ish as if we should attempt to arm
our troops with the flintlocks of Wash
iugton's continentals instead of with
modern weapons of precision. Flint
leck legislation, of the kind that seeks
to prohibit all combinations, good or
' bad. is found to fall, and the effort.
t in fco tar as it accomplishes anything i Thursday night.
at all, merely means that some of the
worst combinations are not checked
and that honest business is checked.
MODERN CONDITIONS TO STAY.
"What is needed is, first, the recog
nition that modern business conditions
have come to stay, in so far at least
aa these conditions mean that business
must be done in larger units, and then
the cool-headed and resolute determi
nation to introduce an effective meth
od of regulating big corporations so
as to help legitimate business as an
incident to thoroughly and completely
safe-guarding the interests of the peo
ple as a whole.
"The middle-sized business men form
an element of strength which is of
literally incalculable value to the na
tion. The average business man of
tbis type is, as a rule, a leading citi
zen of his community, foremost in ev
trything that tells for its betterment,
a man whom his neighbors look up
to and respect.
LAW HELD INDEFINITE.
"Yet nowadays many men of this
kind, when they come to make neces
sary trade agreements with one an
other, find themselves in danger of
becoming unwitting transgressors of
the law, and are at a loss to know
what the law forbids and what it per
mits. This is all wrong. There should i
be a fixed governmental policy, a pol
icy which shall clearly define and pun
ish wrongdoing, and shall give in ad
vance full information to any man as
to just what he can and just what he
cannot legally and properly do.
It is absurd and wicked to treat
tbe deliberate lawbreaker as on an
exact par with the man eager to obey
the law whose only desire is to find
out from some competent governmen
tal authority what the law is and then
live up to it. It is absurd to endeavor
to regulate business In the interest of
the public by means of long-drawn law
suits without any accompaniment of
administrative control and regulation,
without any attempt to discriminate
between the honest man who has suc
ceeded in business because of render
ing a service to the public and the dis
honest man who has succeeded in
business by cheating the public.
ALL, COMMANDS ALIKE.
"It is imperative to exercise over big
business a control and supervision
which is unnecessary as regards small
business. I do not believe in making
mere size of and by itself criminal.
The mere fact of size, however, does
unquestionably carry the potentiality
of such grave wrong doing that there
should be by law provision made for
the strict supervision and regulation
of these great industrial concerns do
ing an interstate business much as we
now regulate the transportation agen
cies which are engaged in interstate
