Coles Phillips, the famous New York artist, has said woman
must lavish most of her attention on the shoes and stockings that
drees her feet.
He is right. No woman )f today can afford to wear Ill-fitting
■hoes and shoddy stockings, and no shoes, however expensive, look
well over a flimsy, cheap looking hose.

forced heel, sole and toe and double knit garter top. They have
all the durality of the old time lisle combined with the beauty of
the silk. In their weaving the greatest of care has been tak3n,
with the result that there Is nc unseemly bagging at the ankle or

REPORT OF THE COMMIS-
SIONER OF CORPORATIONS.
Department of Commerce and Labor,
Bureau of Corporations, Washington
April 8, 1912.
Sir: The actual dissolution of two
ti'eat corporate combinations, ordered
b.v the , supreme court in the Stan-
dard Oil Co. and American Tobacco
Co. cases, has thrust forward the
whole problem of our policy toward
Industrial corporations. If it was not
P'aln before, it is certainly clear now
that the federal government must
lutvf a permanent administrative of
flee through which to supervise inter
state corporate business.
There is little dispute as to ob
iect of our corporate policy. We want
a business machinery of high effici
ency. serving the best interests of
the citizen and returning ample
ward to the ability and industry of
those who UBe I hat machinery fairly
But the means to this end are now
Two great restraints may be im
posed upon business. One is the au
tomatic regulator, competition; the
other, direct governmental interven
tion. It is indeed true that under
some conditions even fair competi
tion may result in combination. The
further question is then raised, how
far is it desirable to enforce compe-
tion by dissolving such combination?
That question, however, need not be
W liatever shall be our ultimate pol-
icy, however, whether of preserving
competition, of enforcing competition,
or of direct governmental regulation
of business operations; or whether,
as is perhaps more likely, our policy
will be a combination of these vari-
ous principles, !n any event such a
permanent administrative svstem is
a neeeesary part of it. That system
must have broad powers of Investi-
gation, taking continuous cognizance
of the operations of large industrial
corporations. Such administration is
necessary for either of the foregoing
policies described, while It docs not
exclude the others. By publicity and
supervision it will preserve competi-
tion and provide equal opportunity
b.v an expert knowledge of current
business conditions it will display the
working of competition, and the cases
iranv, where this falls to be of bene-
fit. It will always be In a position
to furnish, through Its permanent
force Of trained specialists the infor-
mation needed for legislation or reg-
ulation. It will also have the knowl-
edge and data that may be required
properly to enforce competition and
to carry out the Intent of any decree
of dissolution entered under the anti-
A convincing object lesson on the
need of such administrative svstem Is
now before us. The American To-
bacco Co. and the Standard Oil Co.
having been disintegrated, the result-
ant units are now started on a new-
career. These disintegrations have
been accomplished only after a long
litigation and at much expense. The
purpose was to benefit the public bv
a broad reform In economic condl-
'ions. And yet the country has no ef-
fective means of ascertaining how far
the desired reform will really be car-
ried out. No one can foresee the 'it-
ture of these new units in the two
great industries. !t will he purely
an economic and financial pro"°s3.
No Judicial machinery is adapted to
handle this novel problem Indeel,
the circuit court expresly refused the
suggestion of the attorney general
that the tobacco ense be kept open
for three or more years for such pur-
pose of supervision
Public Interest requires that these
two grotiph of companies and any
others In like circumstances, should
he at once obliged hy law to submit
to constant Inspection bv federal of-
f'c organized on lines simitar to those
suggested above Ir these two rases
