President Taft has no purpose now to recommend to Congress any amendment to the anti-trust law designed to prevent the operation of combinations of capital engaged in restraints of trade. He will not request Congress during the existing extraordinary session to consider the question of corporation control. In his usual message in December he will advocate the enactment of the federal incorporation bill submitted to Congress by the attorney general a year ago.
