Pending Bills.

vision Commission and Im

islation. Washington, Mar. 25. The following
is the full text of the president's mes
sage sent to congress Wednesday:
To the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives: I call your attention to
certain measures as to which I think
there should be action by the congress
o before the close of the present session.
There is ample time for their consider
ation. As regards most if not all of
the matters, bills have been intro
duced into -one or the other of the two
houses, and it Is not too much to hope
that action will be taken one way or
the other on these bills at the present
session. In my message at the open
ing of the present session, and. In
deed." in various messages to previous
congresses. 1 have repeatedly sug
Kested action on most of these meas
ures. . Child labor should be prohibited
throughout the nation. At least a
model child-labor bill should be passed
for the District of Columbia. It is
unfortunate that in the one place sole
ly deendent upon congress for its
legislation there should be no law
whatever to protect children by for
bidding or regulating their labor.
I .renew my recommendation for the
immediate re-enactment of an employ
ers' liability law. drawn to conform to
the recent decision of the supreme
court. Within the limits indicated by
the court, the law should be made
0 thorough and comprehensive, and the
protection it "affords should embrace
ivery- class of employe to which the
power of the congress can extend.
In addition to a liability law pro
tecting the employes of common car
riers, the government shotdd show its
good faith by enacting a further law
giving compensation to its own em
ployes for injury or death incurred in
its service. Itla a reproach to us as
a nation that in both federal and state
legislation we have afforded less pro
tection to public and private employes
than any other industrial country of
the world.
Injunction Legislation.
I also urge that action be taken
along the line of the recommendations
I have already made concerning in
junctions in labor disputes. No tern
porary restraining order should be Is
sued by any court without notice; and
the petition for a permanent injunc
tion upon which snch temporary re
straining order has been Issued should
be heard by the court issuing the same
within a reasonable time say. not to
exceed .a week or thereabouts from the
date when the order was Issued. It is
worth- considering whether It would
not give greater popular confidence in
- the impartiality of sentences for con
tempt If it was required that the issue
,- ' should be decided by another judge
than the oae issuing the injunction,
except, where the contempt is com
mitted ia the presence of the court, or
In other case of urgency.
Rate Law Amendments.
I again call attention to the urgent
need of amending the interstate com
merce Jaw and especially the anti-trust
law along the lines indicated in my
last message. The interstate com
merce law should be amended so as
to give railroads the right to make
traffic agreements, subject to these
agreements being approved by the in
terstate commerce commission and
published in all of their details. The
commission should also be given the
power to make public and to pass upon
the issuance of all securities hereafter
issued by railroads doing an interstate
commerce business.
A law should be passed providing in
effect that when a federal court de
termines to place a common carrier
or other public utility concern under
the control of a receivership, the at
torney general should have the right
to nominate at least one of the receiv
ers; or else in some other way the
interests of the stockholders should be
consulted, so that the management
may not be wholly re-delivered to the
man or men the failure of whose pol
icy may have necessitated the crea
tion of the receivership. Receiverships
should be used, not to operate roads,
but as speedily as possible to pay their
debts and return them to the proper
Would Amend Anti-Trust Law.
In addition to the reasons I have al
ready urged on your attention, it has
now become important that there
should be an amendment of the anti-j
Philadelphia People Have Good Reason
to Complain of Fate.
Here is a real hard-luck story.
Two months ago the six-year-old son
of Frederick Levy of 624 South Amer

of a street car and had his left arm
severed at the shoulder. Before the
lad was released from the Pennsyl
vania .hospital his mother and three
other children were restored to the

j trust law. because of the uncertainty
as to how this law affects combina
tions among labor men and farmers,
if the combination has any tendency
to restrict interstate commerce. All
of these combinations, if and while
existing for aad engaged in the promo
tion of innocent and proper purposes,
should be recognized as legal. As I
have repeatedly pointed out, this anti
trust law was a most unwisely drawn
statute. It was .perhaps inevitable that
in feeling after the right remedy the
first attempts to provide such' should
be crude; and it was absolutely imper
ative that some legislation should be
passed to control, in the interest of
the public, the business use of the"
enormous aggregations of corporate
wealth that are so marked a feature
of the modern Industrial world. But
the present antitrust law, in its con
struction and working, has exempli
fied only too well the kind of legisla
tion which, under the guise of being
thoroughgoing, is drawn up in such
sweeping form as to become either in
effective or else mischievous.
In the modern industrial world com
binations are absolutely necessary;
they are necessary among business
men, they are necessary among labor
ing men, they are becoming more and
more necessary among farmers. Some
of these combinations are among the
most powerful of all instruments for
wrongdoing. Others offer the only ef
fective way of meeting actual business
needs. It is mischievous and unwhole
some to keep upon the statute books
unmodified a law, like the antitrust
law, which, while in practice only
partially effective against vicious com
binations, has nevertheless in theory
been construed so as sweepingly to
prohibit every combination for the
transaction of modern business. Some
real good has resulted from this law.
But the time has come when it is im
perative to modify it. Such modifica
tion is urgently needed for the sake of
the business men of the country, for
the sake of the wageworkers and for
the sake of the farmers. The con
gress can not afford to leave it on the
statute books in its present shape.
Remedies Advised.
It has now become uncertain how
far this law may involve all labor or
ganizations and farmers' organizations,
as well as all business organizations,
in conflict with the law; or, if we se
cure literal compliance with the law,
how far it may result in the destruc
tion of the organization necessary for
the transaction of modern business,
as well as of labor organizations and
farmers' organizations, completely
check the wise movement for secur
ing business cooperation among farm
ers, and put back half a century the
progress of the movement for the
betterment of labor. A bill has been
presented in congress to remedy this
situation. Some such measure as this
bill is needed in the interest of all en
gaged in the industries which are es
sential to the country's well-being. I
do not pretend to say the exact shape
that the bill should take, and the sug
gestions I have to offer are tentative;
and my views would apply equally
to any other measure which would
achieve the desired end. Hearing this
in mind, I would suggest, merely ten
tatively, the following changes in the
The substantive part of the anti
trust law should remain as at pres
ent; that is, every contract in restraint
of trade or commerce among the
several states or with foreign nations
should continue to be declared ille
gal; provided, however, that some
proper governmental authority (such
as the commissioner of corporations
acting under the secretary of com
merce and labor) be allowed to pass
on anj such contracts. Probably the
best method of providing for this
would be to enact that any contract
subject to the prohibition contained
in the antitrust law, into which it is
desired to enter, might be filed with
the bureau of corporations or other ap
propriate executive body. This would
provide publicity. Within, say, 60
days of the filing which period could
be extended by order of the depart
ment whenever for any reason it did
not give the department sufficient
time for a thorough examination the
executive department having power
might forbid the contract, which would
then become subject to the provisions
of the antitrust law, if at all in re
straint of trade.
If no such prohibition was issued,
the contract would then only be li
able to attack on the ground that it
constituted an unreasonable restraint
of trade. Whenever the period of fil
ing had passed without any such pro
hibition, the contracts or combinations
could be disapproved or forbidden oaly
after notice and hearing with a rea
sonable provision for summary review
on appeal by the courts. Labor or
ganizations, farmers organizations,
and other organizations not organized
for purposes of profit, should be al
lowed to register under the law by
giving the location of the head office,
the charter and "by-laws, and the
names and addresses of their princl--pal
officers. In the interest of all these
organizations business. labor, and
farmers organizations alike the pres
ent provision permitting the recovery
of threefold damages should be abol
ished, and as a substitute therefor
the right of recovery allowed for
should be only the damages sustained
by the plaintiff and the cost of suit,
including a reasonable attorney's fee.
The law should not effect pending
suits: a short statute of limitations
should be provided, so far as the past
is concerned, not .to exceed a year.
Moreover, and even more in the inter
est of labor than of business combina
tions, all such suits brought for
causes of action heretofore occurred
should be brought only if the contract
or combination complained of was un
fair or unreasonable. It may be well
Some day large eight-year-old Fred
erick Levy, at home with his father,

to remember that all of the salts hith

the antitrust law have been la cases
where the combination or contract was

Labor Organizations.
i It is important that we should en
courage trade agreements between em
ployer and employe wherethey are
just and fair. t A strike is a clumsy,
weapon for righting wrongs done to
labor, and' we should extend, so far as
possible, the process of conciliation
and arbitration for strikes. Moreover,
violence, disorder aad coercion, when
committed in connection with strikes,
should be as promptly and as sternly
repressed as when committed la any
other connection. Bat strikes them
selves are, and should be, recognized
to be entirely legal. v Combinations of
workingmen have a peculiar reason
for their existence. The very' wealthy
individual employer, and still more the
very wealthy corporation, stand at an
enormous advantage when compared
to the individual worUngman; and
while there are many cases where it
may not be necessary for laborers to
form a union, in, many other cases it
Is indispensable, for otherwise "the
thousands of small units, the thou
sands of individual workingmen, will
be left helpless In their dealings with
the big one unit, the big individual or
corporate employer. ,
Twenty-two years ago, by the act of.
June 29, 1886, trades unions were rec
ognized by law, and the right of la
boring people to combine for all
lawful purposes was formally recog
nized, this right including combina
tions for mutual protection and bene
fits, the regulation of wages, hours
and conditions of labor, and the pro
tection of the individual rights of the
workmen in the prosecution of their
trade or trades; and in the act of
June 1, 189S,- strikes were recognized
as legal in the same provision that for
bade participation in or instigation of
force or violence against persons or
property, or the attempt to prevent
others from working, by violence,
threat or intimidation. The business
man must be protected in person and
property, and so must the farmer and
the wageworkcr; and as regards all
alike, the right of peaceful combina
tion for all lawful purposes should be
explicitly recognized.
Objects to Boycott.
The right of employers to combine
and contract with one another and
with their employes should be explic
itly recognized; and so should the
right of the employes to combine and
to contract with one another and with
the employers, and to seek peaceably
to persuade others to accept their
views, and to strike for the purpose of
peaceably obtaining from employers
satisfactory terms for their labor.
Nothing should be done to legalize
either a blacklist or a boycott that
would be illegal at common law, this
being the type of boycott defined and
condemned by the anthracite strike
The question of financial legislation
is now receiving such attention in
both houses that we have a right to
expect action before the close of the
session. It is urgently necessary that
there should be such action. Moreover
actioh should be taken to establish
postal savings banks. These postal
savings banks are imperatively needed
for the benefit of , the wageworkers and
men of small means, and will be a val
uable adjunct to our whole financial
Tariff Revision.
The time has come when we should
prepare for a revision of the tariff.
This should be, and indeed must be,
preceded by careful investigation. It
is peculiarly the province of the con
gress and not of the president, and in
deed peculiarly the province of the
house of representatives, to originate
a tariff bill and to determine upon its
terms; and this I fully realize. Tet it
seems to me that before the close of
this session provision should be made
for collecting full material which
will enable the congress elected next
fall to act immediately after it comes
into existence. This would necessitate
some action by the congress at its
present session, perhaps in the shape
of directing the proper committee to
gather the necessary information, both
through the committee itself and
through government agents who
should report to the committee and
should lay before it the facts which
would permit it to act with prompt
and intelligent fairness. These govern
ment agents, if it is not deemed wise
to appoint individuals from outside the
public service, might with advantage
be members of the executive depart
ments, designated by the president,
on his own motion or on the request of
the committee, to act with it '
I am of the opinion, however, that
one change in the tariff could with
advantage be made forthwith. Our
forests need every protection, and one
method of protecting- them would be
to put upon the free list wood pulp,
with a corresponding reduction upon
paper made from wood pulp, when
they come from any country that
does not put an export duty upon
Waterways Commission.
Ample provision should be made
for a permanent waterways commis
sion, with whatever power is required
to make it effective. The reasonable
expectation of the people will not be
met unless the congress provides at
this -session for the beginning and
prosecution of the actual work of wa
terway improvement and control. The
congress should recognize in ftllest
fashion the fact that the subject of the
conservation of our natural resources,
with which this commission deals, is

How few people there are who are
not afraid of snakes. Not long ago a
