In his inaujrural address Governor
Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey said:
"Our laws with regard to tho rela
tions of employer and employe were
framed for another age, which no
body now living remembers. New
rules must be devised' for their (em
ployes') protection, for their com

will henceforth effectually prevent
the abuse of the privilege of incor

also to be extended to corporations
already operating under the license
and authority of the state. Our
whole system of taxation, which is
no system at all, needs overhauling

la-ws should be extended to every
elective office, and to the selection
of every party committee or official.

control prices, but also to endanger
