Regulate the Trusto--Let the Tariff Alone an(d Provide Re ciprocity With Cuba. The most important features of President Roosevelt's annual message are contained in the following ex tracts: In my message to the present Con gress at its lirst session I discussed at length the question of the regulation of those big corporations commonly doing an Inter-State business, often with some tendency to monopoly, which are popularly known ae trusts. The experience of the past year has empliasized, in my opinion, the desira bility of the steps I then proposed. A fundamental requisite of social efil ciency is a high standard of individual energy and excellence; but this is in io wise inconRistnnt, with nower to act in combination for aims which cannot so well be achieved by the individual acting alone. A fundamental base of civilization is the inviolability of prop erty ; but this is in no wise inconsis tent with the right' of society to reg ulate the exercise of the artificial powers which it confers upon the owners of property, under the name of corporate franchises, in such a way as to pre-ent the misuse of these powers. Corporations, and especially combina tiens of corporations, should be manag ed under public regulation. Ex perience has shown that under our system of government the necessary supervision cannot be obtained by State action. It must, therefore, be achiev ed by national action. Our aim is not to do away with corporationis; on the contrary, these big aggregations are an inevitable development of modern in dustrialism, and the effort to destroy them would be futile unless accom plished in ways that would work the utmost mischief to the entire body politic. We can do nothing of good in the way of regulating and supervising these corporations until we fix clearly in our minds that we are not attacking the coirations, but endeavoring to do away with any evil in them. We are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so hand led as to subsurve the public good. We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth. The capitalist who, alone or in conjunction with his fellows, performs some great industrial feat by which he wins money is a well doer, not a wrong-doer, provided only he works in proper and legitimate lines. We wish to favor such a man when he does well. We wish to supervise and control his actions only to prevent him from doing ill. Publi city can do no harm to the honest co poration; and we need not be over tender about sparing the dishonest cor poration. In curbing and regulating the com binations of capital which are or may become injurious to the public we must be careful not to stop the great enterpises which have legitimately re duced the cost of production, not to abandon the place which our country has won in the leadership of the intei national industrial world, not to strike dowvn wealth with the result of closing factories and( mines, of turning the wage-worker idle in the streets and leaving thle fai:mer without a market for what lie grows. Insistence upon the inpossible means delay in achiev ing the p)ossible, exactly as, on the other hand, the st,ubborn defence alike of what is good and what is bad In the existing system, the resolute effort to obstruct any attempt at betterment, b)etrays blindness to the historic truth that wise evolution is the sure safe guard against revolution. MORE CENTRtAL1AT'ION. No~ more important subject can come before the Congress than this of the regulation of Inter-State business. This country cannot afford to sit supine on the plea tie.t undler our peculiar system of government we are helpless in the presence of new conditions, and unable to grapple with them or to cut out whatever of evil has arisen in con nection with them. The power of the Congress to regulate Inter-State com merce Is an absolute and unqualified grant, and without limitations other than those prescribed by the Constitu tion. The Congress has constit,ut,ional authority to make all laws necessary and proper for execiuting this power, andl I am satisfied that this power has not been exhausted by any legislation now on the statute books. 1t Is evi (lent, therefore, that evils restrictive of commercial freedom and entaling restraint upon national commerce fall within the regulative power of the Congress, and that a wise and reason able law would be a necessary and proper exercise of Congressional au thority to the end that such evils should be eradicated. I believe that monopolies, unjust dliscriminations, which provent or cripple competition, fraudulent over capitalization, and other evila in trutt organmzations and practices which in j urlously affect Inter-State trade can ,e prevented under the power of the Uongress to "regulate commerce with foreign nations and among the several States " through regulations and re quirements operating directly upon such.,con.nerA '4Je instrumentalities tisereof, and thde's igaged thierein. I to netl ec mn this subject to ,h cnsdeatonof: the ongress with. ai view to the passage of a law reasonable in its provisions and ef. feotive in its operatidns, upon wmich the qutestions can be finally adjidicat. ed that now raise (doubts as to th< necessity of constititional amendment If it prove impoisible to accomplisl the purposes ab0ve set forth by such a law, then, aegtiredlly, we should not shrink from ame,uing the Coustitu tion so as to secure beyond peradven. ture the power sought. The Congress has not heretofore made any appropriations for the better enforcement of the anti-trust law as it nowstands. Very much has been done by the depaltment of justice in securing the enforcement of this law, hit much more could be done if Con. gross would make a special appropria tion for this purpose, to be expended under the direction of the Attorney General, MUST NOT TOUCH THE TARIFF. One proposition advocated has been the reduction of the tariff as a means of reaching the evils of the trusts which fall within the category I have described. Not merely would this be wholly ineffective, but the diversion of our efforts in such a direction would mean the abandonment of all intelli gent attempt to do away with these evils. Many of the largest corpora tions, many of those which should be included in any proper scheme of regulation, would not be affected in the slightest degree by a change in the tariff, save as such change interfered with the general prosperity of the country. The only relation of the tariff to big corporations as a whole is that the tariff makes manufactures profitable, and the tariff remedy pro posed would be in effect simply to make manufactures unprofitable. To remove the tariff as a punitive measure directed against trusts would inevitably result in ruin to the weaker competi tors who are struggling against them. Our aim sh-suld be not by unwise tariff changes to give foreign products the advantage over domestic products, but by proper regulation to give domestic competition a fair chance; and this und cannot be reached by any tariff changes which would affect unfavor ably all domestic competitors good and bad alike. The question of regulation of the trusts stands apart from the guostion of tariff revision. Stability of economic policy must al ways be the prime economic need of this country. This stability should not be fossilization. The country has acquiesced in the wisdom of the protec ive tariff principle. It is exceedingly undersirable that this system should be aestroyed or that there should be violent and radical changes therein. Dur past experience shows that great prosperity in this country has always come under a protactive tariff; and t,hat the country cannot prosper under [litul tatilr lnutiages at snort luturvults. Moreover, if the tariff laws as a whole work well, and if business has pros pored under them and is prospering, it is better to endure for a time slight inconveniences and inequalities in iome schedules than to upset business by too quick and too radical changes. [t is most earnestly to be wished that we could treat the tariff from the stand point solely of our business needs. It is, perhaps, too much to hope that partisanship may be entirely excluded from consideration of the subject, but at least it can be made secondary to the business interests of the country that is, to the interests of our people as a whole. Unquestionably these business interests will best be served it together with fixity of principle as regards the tariff we combine a system which will permit us from time to time to make the necessary reapplication of the principle to the shifting national needs. We must take scrupulous care that the reapplication shall be made in such a way that it will not amount to a dislocation of our system, the mere throat of which (not to speak of the performance) would produce paralysis in the business energies of the com munity. .Vhe first consideration in making these changes would, of course, be to preserve the principle which un derhes our whole tariff system -that is, the principle of puttihg American business interests at least oni a full equality with interests abroad, and of always allowing a suflcient rate of duty to more than cover the difference between the labor cost here and abroad. The well-being of the wage worker, like the well-being of the tiller of the soil, should be treaited as an essential in shaping our whole econo mic policy. There must never be any change which will jeopardize the stan dard of comfort, the standard of wages of the American wage-worker. RECIPRtOCITY TREATIES. One way in which the readjustment sought can be . reached is by recipro city tmeatles. It is greatly to be desired that such itreaties may be adopted. They can be used to widen our mark ets and to give a greater field for the activities of our producers on the one hand, and on the other hand to secure in practical shape the lowering of du ties when they are no longer needed for protection among our own people, or when the minimum of damage done may be disregarded for the sake of the minimum of good accomplished. If it prove impossible to ratify the pendmg~ treaties, and if there seem to bnoarant for the endeavor to exe eute others, or to .amend the pendmng treaties so that they can be ratified1 then the same end--to secure recipro city-should be met by direet legisla lion. Wherever the tat iff conditions art such that a need dthange cannot witl advhntage be do by the alpplicatior of the reeproci idea, then it can ba made outright ba lowering of dutel on a giveu pro4Ict. If possible, sued ehange shou ld. a made only after th< .fuliont cnsnadraat.mn by practials o ports who should approach the subject y from a business standpoint, having in t vieN both the particular interests af- s fected and the commercial well-being b of the people as a whole. The ma- r chinery for providing such careful in- a vestiga,ion can readily be supplied. v The executive department has already b at its disposal methods of collecting s 1 facts and figures; and if the Congress a desires additional consideration to that e which will be given the subject by its ei own committees, then a commission of Ia business experts can be appointed t whose duty it should be to recom- e mend action by the Congress after a p deliberate and scientific examination of e the various schedules as they are af fected by the changing conditions. The a unhurriec: and unbiased report of this ' commission would show what changes p should be made in the various sched- v ules, and how far these changes could o go without also changing the great h prosperity which this country is now i enjoying or upsetting its fixed econo mic policy. The cases in which the tariff can produce a monopoly are so few as to el constitute an inconsiderable factor in if the question; but of course if in any p ease it be found that a given rate of 3 duty does promote a monopoly which gi works ill, no protectionist would ob ject to such a reduction of the duty as w would equalize competition. S In my judgment the tariff on an- i thracite coal should be removed and n anthracite put actually, where it now si is nominally, on the free list. This would have no effect at all save in t crises; but in crises it might be of a service to the people. LABOR AND CAPITAL. ge How to secure fair treatment alike ai: for labor and for capital, how to hold to in check the unscrupulous man, to whether employer or employee, with- Ju out weakening individual initiative, p without hampering and cramping the IJ industrial development of the country, ti is a problem fraught with great di-i. gr culties and one which it is of the high- by est importance to solve on lines of re sanity and far-sighted common sense, ca as well as of devotion to the right. to This is an era of federation and com- ar bination. Exactly as business men su find they must often work through Wi corporations, and as it is a constant W tendency of these corporations to grow sh larger, so it is often necessary for th laboring men to work in federations, w and these have become important fac- to tors of modern industrial life. Both cfl kinds of federation, capitalistic and labor, can do much good, and as a necessary corollary they can both do evil. Opposition to each kind of or- a ganization should take the form of op- D position to whatever is bad in the con- a duct of any given corporation or union 1. -not of attacks upon corporations as such nor upon unions as such; for wi some of the most far-reaching benefi- W cent work for our people has been ac- th complished through both corporations gc and unions. Each must refrain from ( arbitrary or tyrannous interference ri with the rights of others. Organized o f capital and organized labor alike should kn remember that in the long run the in- th terest of each must be brought into w harmony with the interest of the gen,- go oral public, and the conduct of each to must conform to the fundamental rules PC of obedience to the law, of individual b.y freedom, and of justice and fair deal- b ings towardl all. Each should remuem ber that in addition to power it must tb strive after the realization of healthy, il lofty and geneious ideals. Every em- th ployor, every wage-worker, imustbe Li guaranteed his liberty and his right to W1 do as lie likes with his property or his to labor so long as he does not infringe W4 upon the rights of others, It is of the ti highest importance that employer and in employee alike should endeavor to ap- di preciat,e each the viewpoint of the th other and the sure disaster that will pl come upon both in the long run if al either grows to take as habitual an at- cil titudle of sour hostility and dlistrust a toward the other. Few people deserve ca bett,er of the country than those repre- it sentatives both of capital and labor- WJ and1 there are many such--who work st continually to bring about a good n- ei derstanding of this kind, based uponb wisdom and upon broad and kindly wi sympathy between employers and1 em-s ployed. Above all, we need to re-t member that any kind of class ami-a mosity in the political world is, if hb possible, even more wicked, eveiik more destructive to nat,ional wrelfare, tr than sectional, race or religious ani- 0( mosity. We can get good govern- C ment only upon condition that we t keep true to the principles upon which b) this nation was founded, and judge h each man not as a part of a class, but W upon his individual merits. All that r we have a right to ask of any man, a rich or poor, whatever his creed, his 01 occupation, his birthplace, or his resi- c4 dence, is that he shall act well andi O' honorably by his neighbor and by his 0' country. We are neither for the rich at man as such nor for the poor man as tl such; we are for the upright man, rich s or poor. So far as the constitutional nT powers of the National Government d touch these matters of general and f( vital moment to the nation they should f( be exercised in conformity wit,h the '9 principles above set forth. lh DEPARTrMENT OF COMM iliCE'. s It is earnestly hoped that a scre- ii tary of commerce may be created, with o a seat In the Cabinet. The rapid ii multiphlcationi of questions affecting hi labor and capital, the growth andl com plexity of the organizations through tl which both labor and capital now 111nd b iexpression, the st,eadly tendency to- I1 ij wardl the employment of capital In I huge corporations andl the wonderful e strides of this country toward loader- ~ .shmp in 'the International business . rorld justify an urgent, demand for ha creation of such i position. Sub Lantially all the leating commercial odies in this country have united in 3questing its creation. It is desir ble that some such imeasure as that 'lich has already pass ed the Senate e enacted into law. The creation of icl a department would in itstlf be u advance toward (ealing with and Yercising supervision over the whole ibjoct of the great cor)orations doing ri Inter-State business ; and wit I liis end in view the Congress siiuld '(dow the departnent, with I rge Lwers, which could be increased as rperience night show the need. I hope soon to submit to the Senate reciprocity treaty with Cuba. On lay 20 last the United States kept its romise to the island by formally icating Cuban soil and turning Cuba ocr to those whom her own people id chosen as the tirst ollicials of the 3W republic. TilE CUnAN PROTI-:cTO)A'rl. Cuba lies at our doors, and what cr affects her for goodt or for ill fects us also. So niuch have our opic feit tilis ti>at in the 'lat, uendmuent we dellnitely took the ound that Cuba must hereafter have oser political relations with us than ith any other Power. Thus in a use Cuba has become a part of our ternational political system. This ikes it necessary that in return she ould be given some of the benefits of coming part of our economic sys in. It is, from our own standpoint, short-l:ighted and mischievous policy tail to recognize this need. More er, it is unworthy of a mighty and nerous nation, itself the greatest d most successful repulic in history, refuse to stretch out a helping hand a young and weak sister republic st entering upon its career of iude ndence. We should always fearless insist upon our rihhts in the fac of e strong, and we should vith un udging hand do our generous duty the weak. I urge the adoption of -iprocity with Cuba not only be use it is eminently for our own in :ests to control the Cuban market d by every means to foster our premiacy in tiie tropical ian(is and I ters south of us, but also because 1, of the giant republic of the North, ould make all our sister nations of a American Continent feel that ienever they will permit it we dosire show ourselves disinterestedly and ectively their friend. PEACE IN 'I'llE PIIL1PPiNES. On July .1 last, on the one hundred d twenty-sixt,h anniversary of the .claration !of lndeplen(lence, peace d amnesty were promulgated in the ilippine Islands, Some trouble has ice, from time to time, threatened th the Mohammedan Moros, but th the late insurrectionary Filipinos c war has eitirely ceased. Civil vernment has now been introduced. >t only does each Filipino enjoy such hts to life, liberty and the pursuit happiness as ho has never before own during the recorded history of a islands, but the people taken as a iole now enjoy a measure of self vernment greater than that granted any other Orientals by any foreign wer and great,er than that enijoyedl any other Orientals under their own vernients, save the Japanese alone. e'have not gone too far in grant,in 0se rights of liberty and self-govern mnt; but we have cer'.amnly gone to e limit that in the interest,s of the ilipp)ine people thiemselves it was so or just t,o go. To hiurry matters, go faster tban we are now going, >uld enitail calamity oii the people of a islands. No policy ever enitered uo by the American people has viin matedl itself in more signal mannier in the policy of holding the Philip los. The triumphl of our arms, above the triumph of our laws and piniI >les, has come sooner than we had y right to expect. Troe muchI praise nuot be given to the army for what hans doiie in thIe Philippines bot.h in irfare andl from an administrative mdopoint in preparing the way for til government; and similar credit, longs to tihe civil authorities for the Ay iin which t,hey have planted the eds5 of self-government in the ground us made ready for thlem. TIhie cour ;e, the unthnchiing eindurance, t,he ghi soldierly ellicieney andl the general nid-hIearted ness and humanity of our 0ops have b)een strikingly manifest I. There now remain only fifteen ousanid troop)s in the islands. All i, over one hiundred thousandl have ~en sent there. Of course, there ive been individual instances of rong-doing among them. T1hey war-, od undIer fearful difilcultics of climate! id surroundings; and under the strain terrible provocations, which thay mtinually receivedl from their foes, :casionai inlstanlces of cruel ret,aliation ~curred. Every effort, has been made prevent such cruelt,ies, and finally ese efforts have been1 completely recessful. Every effort has also b)een adle to detect andl puniish the wrong >ers. After making all allowances or t,hese ndsd5(eeds5 it remains true t,hait w indleed have been the instanoes in huidh war has been waged by a civi sed power against semi-civilized or rbarous forces where there has been > little wronlg-doing by the victors as Sthe Philippine Islands.. On the ther hand, the amount, of diflicult, nportant and beneficent work which as been done is woll-nigh Incalculable. Taking the work of the army and io civil authorities together, it may e questi>nied whether any where else 1 modern times the world has geen a etter example of real constructive tatesmanship than our peop1)1. have iven in thie PIllippine Islanids. High raise should also be given those Fill pinos, in the aggregate ycry runner- r o0us, who have accepted the new con ditions and joined with our representa tives to work with hearty good will for the welfare of the islalnls. SCIENTi'IC All) TO FA M II:ns. Iii no departient of overnmenital work in recent years has there been greater success than in that of gIving Scientific aid to the farm ing popula tion, thereby showing them how most eiflicienItly to 1. cip themsiielves. rThere. is no need of inisi.sting upon01 its im p rta :ce, for the welfare of the farmer i:, futanl ntally necessary to the wel fare of the iepublic as a whole. In addition to such work as quarantine against anim:tl and vegetable piagues, and warrimg aganst them when here introduced, much ctlicient help has been rendered to the farmer by the in troduction of new plants specially a fitted for cultivation under the poculiar conditions existing in diifer ont portions of the country. New cereals have been established in the semli-arid West. F or instance, the . practicability of producing the best ylyp of !miacarqni w1.ts i reinso in annual rainfall of only ten inches r thereabouts has been conclusively lemonstrated. Through the introduc ion of new rices in Louisiana and ln 'exas the production of rice in this ountry has been made to about equal t he home demand. In the Suthwest, he possibility of regrassing over stocked range lanlds has been demon trated; in the North many new orage crops have been intr(duced vhile in the last it has been shown Ii hat some of our choicest -fruits can he ;tored and shipped im such a way as to a id a prolltable market abioad. - - .-.. .- . cr WARE'S SIOALS ON SALUDA in al I MoRel Mill Village---Dani (1 at, to Cost. $100,000 inl Cotrse hr of Constructionl. al, fv 3reenwood )aily Index.
