Th president spoke aa follows: .
My friends and fellow dtlsens: It Is a

upon your behalf, he isa greeted me; and
1 w4sh to state that It Is a special pleasure
to be Introduced by my friend. Senator
Bcott, because when he gives you his word
you don't have to think about It again,
lam glad to have the chano of saying
a few words here In this great Industrial
center. In one of these cities which hue
felt to a notable degree the effect of tha
great period of prosperity through which
we are now passing. Probably never be
fore in our history haa the country been
more prospeious than it I at this mo
ment, and It Is a prosperity which has coma
alike to the tillers of the soil snd to thoae
connected with our great Industrial enter
prises. Good and Bad la Prosperity.
Now, gentlemen, every period baa Ita -trouble
and difficulties. A period of ad
versity, of loume, troubles us all, but
there are troubles in connection with tbo
period of prosperity also. When all things
flourish it .neans that there la a good,
chance for things that we do not like to
have flourish, lust exactly aa there Is for
things that we do like to have flourish; anl
a period of great national material well
being Is unavoidable, one In which human
minds are turned to the way In which
those Interested In th management of the
gigantic capitalistic corporations, whose
growth has been so noted for a period cf
the past half century, flourish.
We have grown to apeak of certain cor
porations rather loosely a trusts. Using
the word In Its common significance of a
big corporation, usually doing buslnesa In
several state at least, belde the state In
which it is incorporated. It seems to me
that in this question of dealing with the
trust (perhaps It would be more proper
to call it a group of problems), we have
to class all of our fellow citizens.
One la composed of those men who refuse
to admit that there is any action neces
sary at ail. The other is composed of
those men who advocate some noneffective
action, or If effective would be effective
only by destroying everything good and
bad connected with our Industrial devel
opment. In every governmental process

should steadfastly keep In mind, la

Change Follows Chaaged Condition.
On the other hand, every people that ha
aelf-government must beware of this fos
siilzation of mind which refuses to sllow
of any change as conditions change. Now,
In dealing with the problem of a change
In our great Industrial civilization, dealing
with tne tendency which haa been ac
