ahould be empowered In its discretion to

but no such restraining order should be

pany In any iilaca other than that of its

forcement as the right of a private per-
son not In tho company's employ to sue

suit should be sufficiently served If upon
the station agent of the company upon
whom service Is authorised is made, to
bond the company in ordinary actions
arising under state laws. Illlls for both
the foregoing purposes have been con-
sidered by the house of representatives
und have been passed, and are now be-
fore the Interstate commerce committer
of the senate. I earnestly urge that they
be enacted into law."
Control of the Truets.

the $100,000 girl's industrial school, nt

tain a specific finding based upon evi-
dence submitted to tho Judge making the
order and identified by reference thereto

"Under the existing law the Interstate
commerce commission itself initiates and
defends litigation In the courts for the
enforcement, or In the defense of Its or-
ders and decrees, and for this purpose it
employs attorneys, who. while subject to
the control of the attorney general, act
upon the Initiative and under tho Instruc-
tions of the commission. This blending
of administrative, legislative and Judi-
cial functions tends, in my opinion, to
Impair the efficiency of the commission
by clothing it with partisan characteris-
tics and robbing It of the Impartial Judi-
cial attitude It should occupy in pass-
ing upon questions suhmitteil to It In
my opinion all litigation affecting the
government should be under the direct
control of the department of Justice: and
I therefore recommend that all proceed-
ings affecting orders and decrees of the
Interstate commerce commission be
brought by or against the United States
eo nomine, nnd be placed in charge of an
assistant attorney general acting under
the direction of the attorney general."
Would Permit Agreements.
Coming to the subject of railroad pools
and traffic agreements, the president
says:
"The Republican platform of 1908 ex-
pressed the belief that the Interstate
commerce law should be further amend-
ed so ns to give the railroads the right
to mske any public traffic agreements
subject to the approval of the commis-
sion. but maintaining always the prin-
ciple of competition between naturally
competing llnrs. and avoiding the com-
mon control of auch line* by any means
whatsoever
"In view of the complete control over
Tho second part of the message Is de-
voted to the control of trusts. After a
lengthy discussion of trusts, good and
bud, and the success of prosocutions un-
der the Sherman anti-trust act, Mr. Taft
says:
"It is the duty nnd purpose of the exec-
utive to direct an investigation by the de-
partment of Justice, through the grand
Jury or otherwise. Into the history, organ-
ization, and purposes of all the industrial
companies with respect to which there is
any reasonable ground for suspicion that
they have been organized for a purpose,
and are conducting business on a plan
which is in violation of the anti-trust
law. The work is a heavy one, but it
is not beyond the power of the depart-
ment of Justice, if sufficient funds are
furnished, to carry on the investigations
and to pay the counsel engaged in the
work. But such an Investigation and
possible prosecution of corporations whose
prosperity or destruction affects the com-
fort not only of stockholders but minions
of wage earners, employes, and associated
tradesmen must necessarily tend to dis-
turb the confidence of the business com-
munity. to dry up the now flowing sources
of capital from its places of hoarding, and
produce a halt In our present prosperity
that will cause suffering and strained cir-
cumstances among the innocent many for
faults of the guilty few. The question
which I wish in this message to bring
clearly to the consideration and decision
of the congress whether to avoid business
danger something cannot be done by
which these business combinations may
be offered a means, without great finan-
cial disturbance, of changing the char-
acter. organization nnd extent of their
business into one within the lines of tho
lnw under federal control and supervision,
securing compliance with the anti-trust
statutes.
For Government Control.
"Generally, in the'industrial combina-
tions called 'trusts,' the principal busi-
ness Is the sale of goods in many states
and In foreign markets: in other words,
the interstate and foreign business far
exceeds the business done In any one
state. This fact will justify the fed-
eral government In granting a federal
charter to such a combination to make
and sell In Interstate and foreign com-
merce tho products of useful manufac-
ture under such limitations as will se-
cure a compliance with the anti-trust
law. It is possible so to frame a statute
that while it offers protection to a fed-
eral company against harmful, vexatious
and unnecessary invasion bv the states
it shall subject it to reasonable taxation
and control by the states, with respect to
its purely local business.
"Many people conducting ffreat busi-
nesses have cherished a hope and a be-
lief that In some way or other a line
may be drawn between 'good trusts' and
•bad trusts.' and that it is possible by
amendment to the anti-trust law to make
a distinction under which good combina-
tions may be permitted to organize, sup-
press competition, control prices, and do
it all legally If only they do not abuse
the power by taking too great profit out
of the business. They point with force to
certain notorious trusts as having grown
into power through criminal methods by
the use of Illegal rebates and plain cheat-
ing. and by various acts utterly violative
of business honesty or morality, nnd urge
the establishment of some leWal line of
separation by which 'criminal trusts' of
this kind can be punished, and they on
the other hand, be permitted under the
law to carry on their business. Now
the public, and espe. iallv the business
public ought to r»d themselves of the
idea that such a distinction is practic-
— ...ipoaai
for one corporation to comply with their
requirements so as to carry on busine
In a number of different states.
"To the suggestion that this proposal of
federal Incorporation for industrial com
blnatlona is intended to furnish them i
refuge In which to continue Industrial
business under federal protection. 1
fthnultl bff said that th© meanure contern
plated doe* not repeal the Sherman ant!
truMt law and la not to b« framed no at
to pormlt the doing of the wrongs which
It is the purpoeo of that law to prevent
but only to foster a continuance and ad*
vance of the highest industrial efficiency
without permitting industrial abuses.
"Such a national incorporation law will
be opposed, first, by those who believe
that trusts should bo completely broken
up and their property destroyed. It will
bo opposed, second, by those who doubt
the constitutionality of such federal in-
corporation and even if it is valid, object
to° *rea* federal centralisation.
It win be opposed, third, by those who
will Insist that a mero voluntary incor-
poration like this will not attract to its
assistance the worst of the offenders
against the antitrust statute and who
will therefore propose instead of it a sys-
tem of compulsory licenses for all feder-
al corporations engaged In interstate
business.
aJ'f*et Vs consider these objections In
their order. The government is now try-
ing to dissolve some of these combina-
tions and it Is not the intention of the
government to desist In the least degree
in its effort to end these combinations

merce of this country; that where it ap
pears that the acquisition and rnnppn.
the acquisition and concen-
it<iii«hi ui property go to the extent of
creating a monopoly of substantially and
directly restraining Interstate commerce.
It is not the intention of the government
to permit this monopoly to exist under
federal incorporation or to transfer to
the protecting wing of the federal gov-
ernmen of a state corporation now vio-
lating the Sherman act. But it is not,
and should not be, the policy of the gov-
ernment to prevent reasonable concen-
tration of capital which is necessary to
the economic development of manufac-
ture, trade and commerce. . . .
May Doubt Constitutionality.
"Second—There are those who doubt the
constitutionality of such federal incorpor-
ation. The regulation of interstate and
foreign commerce is certainly conferred
in the fullest measure upon congress, and
if for the purpose of securing in the most
thorough manner that kind of regulation
congress shall insist that it may provide
and authorize agencies to carry on that
commerce, it would seem to be within its
power, this has been distinctly affirmed
with respect to railroad companies doing
an Interstate business and Interstate
bridges. The power of incorporation has
been exercised by congress and upheld
£y the supremo court in this regard.
Why, then, with respect to any other
rorm of Interstate commerce like the sale
or goods across state boundaries and into
foreign countries, may the same power
not be asserted? Indeed, it is the very
fact that they carry on Interstate com-
merce that makes these great industrial
concerns subject to federal prosecution
and control. How far as incidental to
the carrying on of that commerce it may
be within the power of the federal gov-
ernment to authorize the manufacturer of
goods, is perhaps more open to discus-
sion, though a recent decision of the su-
C01l,rt.lw'0U12 seem to answer that
question in the affirmative.
"The third objection, that the worst of-
fenders will not accept federal incorpora-

injunction recently adopted in prosecu-
tions under the anti-trust law are so
thorough and sweeping that the corpora-
