To the sons of the Puritan, it ia almo-t
needles, to .ay that the lesson above all
ether, which rurltanlara can teach this
nation I. the all-Importance of the resolute
prrform.nce of duty. If we ore men we
will pass by with contemptuous disdain
- alike the adviser, who would seek to lead
,s Into the path, of Ignoble ease and thoss
who would teach us to admire successful
wrongdoing. Our Ideal, should v be high,
and yet they should b capable of achieve
ment In practical, fn.hlon; and we are a.
little to be excused If w. permit our Ideal,
to be tainted with what Is sordid and mean
and a. If we allow our power of
achlevomvnt to atrophy and become either
Incapable of effort or capable only of such
fantastic effort a. to accomplish nothing
nf permanent" good. The true doctrine to
preach 'to this nation, a. to the individual.
?omposlng this nation, is not the life of
ease, hut the life of effort. If It were In
my power to promise the people of this
land anything. I would rot promise them
pleasure. X Would promise them that stern
happiness which comes from the sense of
having rtctrvA In practical fashion a diffi
cult work -which was worth doing.
Element, of Sacre...
The Puritan owed his extraordinary uc
t rs in subduing this continent and making
It the foundation for a social life of or
dered liberty primarily to the fact that he
combined In a very rcmarkabre degree both
th. power of Individual Initiative, of In
dividual self-help, and the power of acting
in combination with hi. fellows; and that
furthermore ho joined to a high heart that
ahrswd 'common sense which save, a man
from the besetting .In. of the visionary
and the doctrinaire. He was stout hearted
and hard headed. He had lofty purposes,
but he "had practical good sense, too.' He
could hold his own in the rough workaday
world without clamorous insistence upon
being helped by others, and yet he could
romblne wtth others whenever It became
necessary to do a Job which could not be
as well done by any one man individually.
The Problem, of Today.
These wer. the qualities which enabled
him to do hi. work, and they are the
vary qualities which we must .how in
doing our work today. There Is no use
of our rooting here to pay homage to
the men who founded this nation unless
wo first of all come In the spirit of try
ing to do our work today as they did
their work In the yesterdays that have
vanished. The problem, shift from gen-
munlty, to each state, the control over
tho.e things which affect only Its own mem
bers and which the people of the locality
themaelvea can best grapple . with, while
providing for rational regulation In those
matters which necessarily affect the nation
as a whole. It seems to rhe that such ques
tions a. national sovereignty and state's
rights need to be treated not empirically er
academically, but from the standpoint of
the Interests of the people as a whole.
National sovereignty I. to be upheld In so
far as It means the sovereignty of the
people used for the real and ultimate good
of the people; and state's rights are to be
upheld In so far as they mean the people's
right. Especially I. this true in dealing
with the relation, of the people as a whole
to the great corporation, which are the.
distinguishing feature of modern business
. Experience has shown that It is necessary
to exercise a far more efficient control than
at present over the business use of those
vast fortunes, chiefly corporate, which aro
used (as under modern conditions they al
most Invariably are) In Interstate business.
When the constitution was created none of
the conditions of modern business existed,
They are wholly new and we must create
new agencies to deal effectively with them
There is no objection In the minds of this
people to any man's earning any amount
of money If he does It honestly and fairly.
If he gets it as the result of special skill
nd enterprise, as a reward of ample serv
ice actually rendered. But there Is a grow
ing determination that no man shall amass
a great fortune by special privilege, by
chicanery and wrong-dolns. .o far a. it
I. In the power of legislation to prevent;
and that the fortune when amassed shall
not have a business use that Is antisocial.
Most large corporation, do a business that
is not confined to any one state. Experi
ence has shown that the effort to control
.trlctiy construed In favor of the defendant.
and In our country, at least both Judg.
and Jury are far mor. Inclined to consider
Ms rights than they are th. Interests of
th. general publio, while In addition It is
always true that a man's general practice,
may be so bad that a civil action will lie
hen It may not be possible to convict him
of any one criminal act. There I. un
fortunately a oertaln number of our felow
countrymen who eem to .ccept the view
that unless a man can be proved guilty of
soma particular crime ha .hall be counted
good cltlaen, no- matter how infamous
the life he has led, no matter how per
nicious hi. doctrine, or his practices. This
I. the view announced from time to time
with clamorous insistence, now-by a group
of predatory capitalists, now by a group
of sinister anarchistic leaders and agita
tors, whenever a special champion of either
class, no matter how evil hi. general life.
Is acquitted of some one specific crime.
Buch a view is wicked whether applied to
capitalist or labor leader, to rich man or
poor man. -and all that I have said as to
desirable and undesirable cltir.ens . remains
Expediency In Prosecutions.
But we have to take thla feeling Into ac
count when we are debating whether It Is
possible to get a conviction in a criminal
proceeding against some rich trust mag
nate, many of whose actions are severely
to be condemned from the moral and social
standpoint, but no one of whose action,
seems clearly to establish such technical
gutlt as will Insure a conviction. As a
matter of expediency, In enforcing the
law against a great corporation, we have
continually to weigh the arguments pro
and con a. to whether a prosecution can
successfully be entered into, and as to
whether we can be successful In a criminal
action against the chief Individuals in the
corporation, and If not whether we can at
least be successful In a civil action against
the corporation itself. Any effective action
on tho part of the government ia alway.
objected to, a. a matter of course, by the
wrongdoers, by the beneficiaries of the
wrongdoers, and by their champions; and
often one of the most effective way. of
attacking the action of the government is
by objecting to practical action upon the
ground that It doe. not go far enough.
One of the favoritfe devices of those who
are really striving to prevent the enforce
ment of these laws is to clamor for action'
of such severity that It cannot be under
taken because It will be certain to fall If
tried. An Instance of this Is the demand
often made for criminal prosecutions where
such prosecutions would be certain to fail.
We have found by antual experience that
a Jury which will gladly punish a corpora
tion by fine, for Instance, will acquit the
Individual members of that corporation If
we proceed against them criminally be
cause of those very things which the cor
poration which they direct and control has
done. In a recent case against the Licorice
trust we Indicted and tried the two cor
porations and their, respective presidents,
The contracts and other transactions estab- me guut or the corporations were
between man and man and rigid obedience to
the law. Our aim Is to help every honest
man. every honest corporation, and our
policy means In Its ultimate analysis a
healthy and prosperous expansion of busi
ness activities, of honest busines. men and
honest corporations.
Hear, for Railway Employee.
I very earnestly hope that the legislation
which deal, with the regulation of corpora
tion, engaged In interstate bu.lnes. will
also deal with the rights and Interest, of
the wageworker. en-ployed by those cor
porations. Artlon wa. taken by the con
gress last year limiting the number of
hours that railway employe, should be
employed. The law I. a good one; but If
In practice It proves necessary to
strengthen It, It strengthened.
We have now secured a national employers'
liability law; but ultimately a more far
reaching and thoroughgoing law mutt be
passed. It is monstrous that a man or
woman who Is crippled in an Industry,
even a. the result of taking what are the
necessary risks of the occupation, should
be require to bear the whole burden of
the loss. That burden should be distributed
and not placed solely upon the weakest
Individual, the one least able o carry It.
By me.klng the employer liable the loss
will ultimately be distributed among all
the beneficiaries of the business.
I also hope that there will be legislation
Increasing the power of the national gov
ernment to deal with certain matters con
cerning tho health of our people every
where; the federal authorities, for Instance,
should join with all t state authorities in
warring against the dreadful scourge of
tuberculosis. Tour own state government,
here In Massachusetts)! deserves high praise
for the action it ha. t.ken In these public
health matter, during the last few yean,
and In thla, as In some other matters, I
hope to see the national government stand
abreast of tho foremost state govern
ments. ..
cannot produce wholesome results. In
most cases such effort falls to Correct the
real abuses of which the corporation Is or
mey be guilty; while in other case, the
effort is apt to cause either hardship to
the corporation Itself, or else hardship to
neighboring states which have not tried to
grapple with the problem in the same man
ner; and of course we must be as scrupu
lous to safeguard the right, of the cor
porations a. to exact from them In return
a full measure of Justice to the public.
National Incorporation Law.
I believe In a national incorporation law

ness. I believe, furthermore, that the need

of Innovation, yet he did not hesitate
to adopt anything new that would save

faced wholly new condition, and he had
to devise new methods of meeting them.
So we of today face wholly new condi
tion. In our social and Industrial .life.
Wo should certainly not adopt any new
scheme for grappling wtth them merely
because It I. new and untried; but we
cannot afford to shrink from grappling
with them because they can only b.
grappled with by aotne new scheme.

spirit of the Puritan was a spirit which
nevtr shrank from regulation of con

which we must .how today whenever It

We can do this only by proceeding farther
along the lines marked out by the recant
national legislation.
In dealing with any totally new set of
conditions there must at the outset be he.l
tatlon and experiment. Such ha. been, our
experience In dealing wtth th. enormous
concentration of capital employed In Inter
tate business. Not only the legislatures,
but the courts and the people need gradu
ally to be educated so that they may see
what the real wrongs are and what the
real remedies. Almost every big business
concern i. engaged In interstste commerce,
and such a concern must not be allowed
by a dexterous shifting of position, a.
has been too often the case la th. past,
to escape all responsibility either
to state or to nation.
Need of Reajalatlon Apparent.
The American people became firmly con
vinced of the need of control over thee
great aggregations of capital, especially
where tht-y had a monopolistic tendency,
before they became quite clear as to the
proper way of achieving the control.
Through thalr representatives In congress
they tried two remedies, which were to
a large decree, at least as interpreted by
tl.e courts, contradictory. On th. on. hand,
under the anti-trust law the effort wa.
made to prohibit all combination, whether
It wa. or wa. not hurtful or beneficial
to the public. On the other hand, through
the interstate commerce law a beginning
wa. made In exercising such .upervtalon
and control over combination, a. to pre
vent their doing anything harmful to the
body politic. The first law, the so-called
Sherman law, ha. filled a u.eful place, for
It bridge, over the transition period until
the American people .hall definitely make
up it. mind that It will exercla. over the
great corporation, that thoroughgoing and
radical control which It I. oertaln ulti
mately to find nece.sary. Th. prlnclpl. of
the Sherman law so far a. it prohibit,
combination, which, whether because of
tlielr extent or ef their character, are
harmful to the public mu.t alway. be pre
served. Ultimately, and I hope with rea
sonable speed, the national government
must pass law. which, while increasing
the supervisory and regulatory power ef
the government, also permit. .Ah u.eful

openness and as th. representative, of th
government may previously approve. But
It will not be po.albl to permit auch oom

In dealing wtth those who oftenj agaln.t
the anti-trust and inter.tat. commerce
laws, the Department of Justice has to
encounter many anl great difficulties. Often
men who have been guilty of violating
these law. have really acted In criminal
fashion, and If possible should be pro
