They violate the common law. The doors of the courts are dosed to those who are parties to them, and I believe the congress can close the channels of interstate commerce against them for its protection.; The law should make its prohibitions and permissions as clear and definite as possible, leaving tbc least posaible room for arbitrary action or allegation of such action on the part of tUie executive or of divergent interpretations by tbe courts.

Rcnson- able agreements t)etwecn or combinations of corporations should bo Jier- mittod provided they are first submitted to and approved by some appropriate government body. Congress' Power. The congress has the power to charter corporations to engage In interstate and foreign commerce, and a general law can be enacted under the provisions of which existing corporations wuld take out federal charters and new federal corporations could be created.' An essential provision of such a law 8hou'.d be a method of predetermining by some federal board or commission whether the applicant for a federal charter was an association or combination within the restrictions of the federal law. Provision should also be made for complete publicity in all matters affecting tbe public and complete protection to the investing public and the shareholdera in the matter of Issuing corporate securities. If an incorporation law Is not deemed advisable, a license act for big interstate corporations might be enacted or a combination of the two might be tried. The supervision established might be analogous to that now exercised over national banks. At least the anti- '' trust act^ should be supplemented by specific lurohibltlons of tbc methods which experience has shown have been I of most service in enabling monopolls- j tic combinations to crush out competl- 1 tlon. Tho real owners of a corporation should be compelled to do business In their own name. The right to hold stock In other corporations shonld hereafter be denied to Interstate corporations, unless on approval by tho proper govemmebt officials, and a prerequisite to such approval should l>e the listing with the government of all owners and stockholdcre, both by the corporation owning such stock and by the corporation In which such'stock Is owned. Lessons of Rectnt Crisis. To confer upon the national' government In connection with the amendment I advocate In the antitrust law power of supen-lslon over big business concerns engaged In Interstate commerce would benefit them as It has benefited the national banks. In the recent business crisis it Is noteworthy that the Institutions which failed were institntions which were not under the suflkrvislon and control of the national government Those which were under national control stood the test . National control of the kind above advocated would be to the lienefit of every well managed railway. From the standpoint of the public there Is need for additional tracks, additional terminals and improvements in the actual handling of the railroads, and all this as rapidly as possible.

Therefore, while there must Ije just and reasonable regulation of rates, wc should be the first to protest against any arbitrary, and unthinking movement to cut them down without the fullest and most careful consideration of all interests concerned and of the actual needs of the situation. Only a special body of men acting for tbe national government under authority conferred upon it by the congress is competent to pass JujUrmentjm such a matter. Pure Food Caw. Incidentally In tbe passage of the pure food law the action of the various state food and dairy commissioners showed in striidnc fashion bow much good for the whole people results from tbe hearty cp-operatlon ot the federal and state officials in secnrlug a given reform. It is primarily to tho action of thete state commissioners that we owe tbe enactment ot this law. for they aroused tbe people, first to demand the enactment and enforcement of state laws on tbe subject and then the ehaetment ot tbe federal law, without which tbe state laws were largely ineffective. Tbere mnst be the doeest co-operation between tbe national and state goTemntenta in nd- mlnlatering these laws. CurrMMsy LegialatiM NesM.

In other words, the principle of the present tariff law could not with wisdom To Tax Nonresidents .HiglMr. The tax should If votOblt be~made to bear more beavfly upon tbi>ae redd­ ing, witbont tbe coimtry tlian wlttaln It. A k^ry progreaslTe tax upon a very large fortune is in no way sncb a tax ni>on thrift or industry aa a like tax would be on a'small fortune. vantage comes either to the country as a whole or to {he Individuals inheriting the money by permitting the transmission in their entirety of the enormous fortunes which would be affected by such a tax. and as an incident to Its function of revenue raising •neb a tax wonld help to preserve a measurable equality of opportunity for the people of the generations growing to manhood. We have not the slightest sympathy with that socialistic idea which would try to ptit laziness, thriftlcssness and Inefflciency on a par with ladnstry. thrift and affleisocy, which would strive to break up not merely privata property, but, what Is far more important the home, the chief prop upon which our whole civilization stands. Snch a theory if ever adopted would mean the ruin of tho entire country, but proposals for legislation such as this herein advocated arc dircctiy oi>- poscd to this class of socialistic tne- orles. Enforcement of the Law. A few years ago tbere was loud complaint that tho law could not be invoked agn Inst wealthy offenders. There Is no snch complaint now. The course of the department of justice dwing tho last few yeara has been such us to make it evident that no man stands above the law, that no corporation is so wealthy that it cannot be held to account Everything that can \K done under tbe existing law and with the existing state of public opinion, which so profoundly InflueAces both the courts and Juries, has been done, but the taws themselves need strengthening.

The solo consideration should he to see that tho sum total of changes represents the public good. This means that the subject cannot with wisdom be dealt with In the year preceding a presidential election, because as a matter of fact experience has conclusively shown that at such a time it Is impossible to get men to treat it from the standpoint of the public goo<l. Ill my Judgment the wise time to deal with the matter is immediately after such election. Income Tax and Inheritanea Tax. When our tax laws are revised the question of nu Income tax and an In- berit;incc tax should receive the careful attention of our legislators. In my Judgment both of these taxes should be part of our system of fed eral taxation. I speak diffidently about the income tax because one scheme for an Income tax was declared unconstitutional by the supreme court, while in addition It Is a difficult tax to administer in its practical working, and great care would have to be exercised to see that it was not evaded by the very men whom it was most desirable to have taxed. Nevertheless a graduated income tax ft the proper type would bo a desirable feature of federal taxation, and it is to be hoped that one may be devised which the supreme court will declare constitutional. The inheritance tax, however. Is a far better method of taxation. The government has tho absolute right to decide as to the terms upon which a man shall receive a bequest from another, and this point in the devolutiofi of property Is especially appropriate for the Imposition of a tax. Laws imposing such taxes have repeatedly been placed upon the national statute liooks and as repeatedly declared conaUtu- tloncl by the courts, and these laws contained the , progressive principle— that is. aft£r a certain amount Is reached the bequest or gift In life or death Is increasingly burdened aud the rate of taxation la increased In proportion to the remoteness of blood of the man receiving the bequest These principles are recognized already In the leading civilized nations of the world. Germany's Inhecitance Tax. The German law Is espcchilly interesting to us because it makes the Inheritance tax an imperial measure while aUoting to the individual states of tbe empire a portion ot tbe proceeds and permitting them to Impose taxes In addition to those Imposed by the imperial government Small Inlier- Itancos are exempt but tbe tax is so sharply progressi^-e that when the Inheritance la still not very large, provided it Is not an agricultmral or a foi^ est land, it U taxed at tbe rate of 2S per cent If It goes to distant reiatlTOk There Is no reason why In the United States the national government should not Impoae Inheritance taxes In addl^ tlon to tfaoee imposed by tbe states, and when we last bad an inberitsnee tax about one-bait of tbe states lerled sncb taxes ooncorrenUy witb tiie national corernment. nwMny a N ^WmHt maximum rate ta some ••35 per cent Injunctions. ' Instances of abuse In the granting of injunctions In labor disputes continue to occur, and tbc resentment in the minds of those who feel that their rights are being Invaded and their liberty of action and of speech unwarrantably restrained continues likewise j •to grow. Much of the attack on thej use of the process of Injunction Is wholly without warrant bat I am constrained to express the Iwllef that for some of It there Is warrant This question Is becoming one of prime importance, and unless the courts will deal with It In effective manner It is certain ultimately to demand some form of legislative action. It would be most unfortunale for onr social welfare if we should permit many honest andj. law abiding ciUzeus to feel that they' had Just cause for regarding our courts •with hostility. I earnestly commend to the attention of the congress this matter, so that some way may be devised which will limit the abuse of Injunctions and protect those rights which from time to^me it unwarrantably Invades. Moreover, discontent Is often expressed with the use of the process of Injunction by the courts, not only in labor disputes, but wliera state laws are concerned. I' refrain from discussion of this question as I am informed that it will soon receive the consideration of the supreme court The process of injunction is an essential adjunct of the court's doing ita work well, and as preventive measures are always better than remediU the wise use of this process Is from every standpoint commendable. But where it is recklessly or unnecessarily nsed tbc abuse should be censured, above oil by the very men who are properly anxious to prevent any effort to shear the courto of this necessary power. The court's decision must be final. The protest Is only against the conduct of individual Judges In needlessly anticipating such final decision or in the) tyrannical use of 'what Is nominally a temporary Injunction to accomplish what is' In fact a permanent decision.
