Tbnn First Dreadnanght.
PHILADELPHIA. Sept. 23The great
Argentine battleship, Moreno, planned to
be one of the most formidable dread
noughts In the world, was launched at
2:33 o'clock true afternoon from the yards
of the New Tork Ship Building com
pany at Camden, N. J.
The only other vessel Its equal now
afloat. Is Ha suiter ship, the Rtvadavla,
recently launched by the Fore River
Ship Building Company at Quincy, Mass.
The Moreno was christened by Senora
Isabel Betbeder, wife of .Rear Admiral
Onofre Betbeder. president of the naval
com- tisslon as proxy for Penora Josefa
Fignr-oa Aleorta, wife of - the former
president of the ArMntlne republtt, who
had been selected as the sponsor, but
was unabe to come to thl country.
. DiKtlvamlshed Company Present. .
A large company of Invited guests saw
the giant ship take Its first plunge Into
the Delaware river, the birthplace of
many other ' warships. Among the
guests were Benor Dr. Romulo 8. Naon,
the Argentine minister at Washington,
and his staff. Rear Admiral Betbeder
and the members of the Argentine naval
commission, high officers in the Ameri
can navy, representatives of shipyards
and steel companies In the east.
The Moreno, named after Mariano Mor

placement than the Utah and Florida,
the greatest ships now in the service of
the United States government and theae
two giant American fighters outrank any
ship afloat in any other foreign navy.
The Utah and Florida have a displace
ment of 23,000 tons, whereas the Moreno
when completed will have 27,600.
According to the figures given oiii by
the builders the Moreno and Rivadavia
are even larger than the super-dreadnought
New York, the keel of which
was lecently laid In New York and
which will have a displacement of 27.000
tons. British designers are working to
outstrip any of theae buge fighting ma
chines, planning the Queen Mary with
a displacement of 29,000 tons.
The great strides made in battleship
building will be realized when it Is re
membered that the original dreadnought
built by England and which is the unit
for the modern fighting ship had a dis
placement of only IS.000 tona.

so far as armament is concerned Is a
reduction of two in the number of main
guns, at the same time increasing the
caliber to U Inches. The super-dreadnought
New York will have ten M-tncb
guns and a ship of the same class Is
under construction in Great Britain. The
Moreno under its contract will have to
develop 22Va knots speed.
The Moreno and Rivadavia are 696 feet

. WELCOME THE VEST
System of Commission is Proposed
by the Famous Attorney from
PLANNED BY FRANK B. KELLOGG
Before Palimpeeat Clnb Trnst Bnster
Ontltnes His Scheme for Mak
ing Monopolistie Com.
A federal commission to regulate all
large corporations Is advocated by Frank
B. Kellogg, famous trust bupter of St.
Paul. The Palimpsest club gave a dinner
at the Omaha club Saturday evening In
honor of the Minnesota lawyer, and t
was called upon to speak on the relations
of the government to the very large and
monopolistic combines of capital. Mr.
Kellogg, famous for bis work on behalf
of the government In several trust dis
solution suits. Including the Standard
Oil case and the merger suit against the
Union Pacific and the Southern Pacific,
outlined a policy of constructive reform
which would give the government a sys
tem of machinery capable of mastering"
the difficulties of corporation control.
The members of the Palimpsest club, an
organization of business and professional
men interested n Intellectual and govern
mental affair, was his only audience.
The club numbert many of Mr. Kel-
logg's personal friends, at he was often
a visitor to Omaha when he was con
nected with the legal department of the
Chicago Great Western railroad.
He voiced his suggestions as follows:
"I think congress should pass a law
containing, among Other things, the fol
lowing regulations and provisions:
"First It should provide for a volun
tary system of federal Incorporation and
license. I do 'not believe In making this
compulsory, for the reason that many
large industrial corporations are now In
corporated under state laws in such
manner that It might be difficult te re
incorporated unier a federal law. These
corporations which have been dissolved
under federal decisions like the Standard
Oil, Tobacco and powder trusts and other
similar concerns could easily relncor-
J porate or form several corporations tak-
lng over branches of their business. Con
gress should place a limit upon the elie
of such corporations and the amount of
the business of the country they may
Second I would provide for a compul
sory license, which shall be the alter
native of federal incorporation, requiring
corporations engaged In Interstate com
merce othtfr than railways and purely
transportation companies to take out
license containing substantially the same
restrictions and provisions which I shall
suggest as to federal Incorporation. The
object of the federal license or incorpora'
Hons Is that great aggregations of capi
tal which may threaten the Independence
of other industries, may control prices,
transportation and the finances of th
country, shall be reasonably regulated to
as to prevent Injury te the public by such
vast accumulations or wealth, wnen g
corporation seeks a legislative charter un
der which It may amass the great indus
tries and wealth of the country. It should
be subject to searching examination to tee
If these powers are abused, and It should
be subject to restrictions and control.
Third I would compel each separate
federal corporation or licensed company
te engage ia but one business and would
not allow it to hold stock In corporations
conducting other business and enterprises.
Another important provision would be a
clause prohibiting common directors and
officers of separately owned and natur
ally competitive corporations.
Prohibit Control of Money.
FourUi I would also provide that no
corporations formed pursuant to this act
or so licensed shall have power to use
Its surplus for any purpose other than
for the transaction of Its business for
which It waa organised, but not to pro
hibit it from depositing Its money In
banks, subject to check, as ordinary de
posits are made. It Is common knowl
edge that these trusts amass great sums
of money as surplus. They egn, through
these vest sums, control the banking
business, the circulating medium through
which the people of thla country must do
business. Such concentration ef wealth
Is dangerous. It would be very easy for
a .corporation with a great surplus to
create a panic or to unduly raise or de
press the price of securities The circu
lating medium of the country on which
every one must do business, should not
be subject to the whim or caprice or the
greed of any set of men. The should be
prohibited from using other moneys
through stock ownership for any of these
purposes, or from controlling railway
transportation lines, financial Institu
tions or other industries. I deem this one
of the most important feature of a fed
eral lncorposatlon and a federal license

ST. LOUIS. Sept. 23. Paying his third
visit to this city since entering the White
House. President Taft today was received
by larger ciowds and with more applause
and cheering from the sidewalk throngt
than on any previous occasion.
He was the guest throughout the day
of the Million Population club, and his
hosts made an endeavor to show the chief
executive how far along toward a million
the city had climbed. Following break
fast at the Mercantile club, where the
president frankly admitted that the de
feat of Canadian reciprocity had hit him
"between the eyes," there came a forty
mile automobile ride through St. Louis
and out into the suburbs.
The residents of the various communi
ties turned out as a body to wave a
greeting to the presidential car as tt
whizsed by at a speed that reached a
maximum of thirty miles at times.
Foot ball and base ball claimed part of
the president's time. He opened a col
lege game of the former sport by tossing
the ball onto the field and saw a Na
tional league game of base ball during
At the foot ball field the president
was Introduced by Archbishop Glennon
as "the best president the United States
had ever had."
Mr. Taft simlllngly replied that he had
always bad great faith in the good
Judgment of the archbishop, but he
thought hit sense of proportion as to
presidents might be a little awry.
During the automobile parade there
were two runaways of horses belonging
to th mounted police escort. One of
the unmanageable animals dashed up to
the rear of the. president' t car and was
only stopped by a saber blow from on
of th policemen. The president seemed
not to notice the Incident.
. Reception is Nonpartisan.
The president's reception here was non
partisan. At the Mercantile club three
former governors of Missouri, Stephens,
Francis and Folk, democrats, were on
the reception committee. At the Union
station five companies of boy scouts were
given a place of honor despite the pro
test of the union labor men, who had
protested against the scouts participat
ing. A union band will furnish muslo
at the Coliseum.
The Central Trades and Labor union
recently passed a resolution prohibiting
any union musicians from playing in any
of the entertainments given to President
Taft if the boy scouts participated in th
ntertalnlng in any way.
The objection of the union labor men
was based on the theory that the boy
scouts' organization is a budding militia
movement that will later be used to sup
press strikes. A compromise, however,
was reached, which permitted participa
tion of the boy scouts and the union
men, but the unions' resolution wat not

Taft at the breakfast by saying that aU

President Taft replied briefly, saying
he felt absolutely at home in St. Louis,
and then referred to reciprocity. "1 sup
pose you have heard the policy of rec
iprocity Is not going through," said Mr.
Taft. "I tee Speaker Champ Clark has
been speculating as to who is responsible.
I can't say who Is responsible, but I do
know that I am content to abide by th

to know that when you get a decision

best thing to do Is to sit still. I regret
that it is not going through, for it
