HOTTEST MESSAGE EVER SENT
Prealdent Urges Lawmakers to Per
fect Laws Acts Bearing on Control
of Great Corporations Need Atten
tion Employers' Liability.
Washington, Feb. 1. Au unusual
md almost unprecedented scene was
enacted in the house of roprosoiua
Uvea as (he result of the reaulng o. a
pedal mcsiiugo to congress by the
jrodidont, uiglng additional lcgis.at.on
n the matter of relations of labor und
tupllal nnd of corporations und the
pnblle. The vigorous language of the
document brought torth storms of ap-
jilauso, flist on the Detuocrntic sice of
the house nnd then on the Republican,
sind culminating in a general demou
nt ration by tho entire body.
The reading of the president's nies
nago was the chief feature of the sen
ate proceedings. The message re
ceived caretui attention on tno part
of many senators on both sides ol tnc
:hanuier. The senate ordered the
jirlnting of 10,000 copies.
Extracts From Message.
"Tho i cecal decision of the supremo
court in regard to the employers lia
bility act, the experience ot the inter
atnle commerce commission and ot tho
dopartment of justice in enlorcing tno
interstate commorco and anti-trust
lawn, and the gravely significant atti
tude toward the law and its adminis
tration recently adopted by certain
beads of great corporations, render it
desirable that there should be addi
tional legislation ' as regards certain
of the relations between labor and
capital, nnd between tho great corpor
ations and the public."
Ho urges tho re-enactment of the
employers' liability law in such form
:iu to avoid the objections found fatal
by tho court, and also very urgently
advises Hint a comprehensive act bo
passed providing for compensation by
the government to nil employes in
jured' In tho government service.
Attention Is again called to tho need
of action regarding the abuse of in
junctions in labor cuses
Tho president then proceeds to re
pent recommendations made in pro
i Ions messages as to desirable rail
road regulation legislation. He says
tho interstate commerce commission
should bo empowered to pass upon
any rate or pructicc on its own initia
tive. In reference to tho Sherman anti
trust law, lie repeats the recommenda
tions made in his message at the open
ing of tho present congress, as well
as irt his message to tho previous eon
Jiress, and ho adds: "I do not know
whether it is possible, but if possible,
ic is certainly desirable, that In con
nection with measures to restrain
-tock watering and over-cnpitalbatiou
there should bo measures taken to
prevent at least tho grosser forms of
gambling in securities and commod
ities, such us making large sales of
what men do not possess and 'corner
ing' the market. There Is no moral
difference between gambling at cards
or in lotteries or on the race track
uihI gambling in tho stock market."
Heferenee Is made to the donuueia
vion by the Standard Oil company and
of the Santa Fo railway of the courts
and Juries by which they wero con
victed. These statements, published
broadcast, and declaring innocence.
"aro very ingenious," says the presi
dent, "and are untruthful in Important
particulars." Ho then quotes lu full a
letter from Kdward Chambers, general
freight tralllc manager of the Atchi
son, Topoka. nnd Santa Fe rallwuy
system, to CJ. A. Davidson, auditor of
tho same company, dated Feb. U7, 1907,
-.out by Francis J. llenoy, In which it
appears that Mr. Ripley of tho Santa
Fo road, who hud said that he knew
nothing about any rebates being grant
ed by his road, participated in arrang
ing a rebate agreement between the
load and the Associated Oil company.
"Tho methods by which the Stand
ard Oil people and those engaged in
tho other combinations of which I
have spoken about have achieved gieat
fortunes can only be justified by the
advocacy of a system of morality
which would also justify every form
of criminality on tho pari of a labor
union, and every form of violence, cor
ruption and fraud, from minder to
bribery and ballot box stullilng in pol

"It is not the puppets, but'the strong
