Secretary Tnft, lias launcher] his boom. In a speech nt JJoston on Monday be gavo evidence that he stood squarely on President's policy of tho past three yours- n square donl for nil. Tho text of his speech was "Tho Panic of 1907; its Causes, its Probable Effects and the Relation to it of the Policies of tho National Administration," "There in a giant struggle," said Mr. Taff,, "between the national administration and certain powerful combinations called trusts. They be- cnrrM) tho dictators of tho great, railroads, however powerful, and by threatening a withdrawal of patronage, secured unlawful and discriminating rebates, which greatly increased their profits and still more supress- ing competition. Tho purpose of' the administration was to make these trusts, however powerful and wealthy, to know that, tho laws upon the statute books were living things and must ho obeyed. "The passage of tho railroad rate bill met tho opposition of many of tho railroads, but, tho successful fight waged by tho administration was a noteworthy one, and now after a victory has been won und these trusts show that thoy fear the law, tho panic cornea (in. Tho trust magnates, solidly entrenched with great, financial resources, are not tho ones that suffer the most from it. It is tho .men who have had no such unlawful method of making money. Tho agents and sympathi'/ors of tho trusts now rush forward to piuoo the blame of, present conditions upon the ad- minis^ration. Thoy seek to use tho panic as an argument for giving up the moral victory which Ijns hvan IRWINDALE. Mr. and Mr.';. H.

"It has been said that the policy of the administration has been directed against orKiwlzed capital and that it has thereby frightened inventors. I deny it. Tho course of tho administration has boon directed against suoh organized capital as was violating the statutes of the United Htates—and no others, It has every consideration for and desire to aid and assist; organized capital which is engaged in legitimate business. "It is indispensable to prevent tho absolute control of the whole financial system of the country passing to a small oligarchy of individuals. "I am earnestly opposed lo the government ownership of the^inter- Htiito railroads that are Mm arterial system of tho country. Those railroads should continue to be managed by jirivato corporations. (iovcin- ment ownership of railroads means state socialism, an increase in the power oi the central government that would be dangerous. "If lho> abiiflns of monoply and discrimination cannot be restrained; if tho concentration of power made possible by such abum's continues and increases and tho oppression of an oligarchy cannot bo avoided, then socialism will triumph and the institution of private property will perish," Assessment Notice.
