"But you did, at one time contemplate

t'halrman Stanley asked. Intimating that
this was one of the reasons th-U led rhe
steel corporation to Insist upon lat!ng
the lllll ore lands.
"I never did." Mr. Hill said. "Any
reports of that kind were untrue."
Just before the railroad builder was
excused Representative Beall of Texas
called bla attention to the assertions of
E. H. Uary, chairman of the board of
the steel corporation, and other business
men to the effect that the day of com

' that tha time was at hand when the
government must regulate maximum and

"Do you think then It would be unwise
for th federal government! o assume
control of business?" Mr. Beall asked.
"I think when the federal government
does that it will be a short step until
there will be no federal government."
"You think that such a government
wouldn't be much like a republic?"
"It would be a monarchy."
Chairman Stanley asked If Mr. Hill
thought corporations, operating under a
new golden rule of business, aided by the
government in fixing prices and pre
venting them from hurting each other,
hut not preventing them rrm crushing
