WASHINGTON, Feb. 29. The proposed
10i.0CO.000 RockcfeUex foundation for be
nevolent purposes constitutes tho saresi
dlspcUtlon that can be made of that por
tion of John U. ItocKciener s immcino
fortune, is the conclusion expressed In a
majority report from the senate Judiciary
committee to the senate recommending
the passage of the Rockefeller foundation
"This money Is now In control of a
private Individual, who could, If ho chose,
direct Uh ue to purely private ends for
a considerable period after his own
dPttlh," said the report. "Instead of this
ho proposes to place it, subject to con
gress, In control of a body of men now
actually administering well known char
ities of acknowledged usefulness."
In an opposing report, Senator Culber
son attacks tha proposed Incorporation
for tho Rockefeller fortune, on tho
ground that It might give federal protec
tion for fifty or 100 years to great
amounts of securities of the Standard
Oil company or other monopolies.
fannilatlnn Not Perpetual.
The majority report says the bill haa
been changed so that all danger of an
unrestricted perpetuation of the Rooke
felle r foundation Is done away with,
The choice of successors to the' original
Incorporators must be approved under
the terms of the bill, by the president of
the United States, the chief Justice of the
supreme court, the president of the sen
ate, the speaker of the house and the
presidents of Yale, Harvard, Columbia.
Johns Hopkins and Chicago universities.
"The proposed foundation," says the
report, "Is an exception among char
itable trusts In that the element of per
petuity practically has been removed.
AVhlle It Is eminently fitting that con
gress should scrutinize -with the utmoit
care the provisions of such a charter
with a view to remedying defects and
preventing abuses. It also is fitting tha
congress should Vecognlre the possibili
ties of good to this country and to hu
manity that are Inherent In a great phll
pjrtthroplc endowment, properly snfe.
guarded and wisely odmlnlsMyed, and
that It should welcomes tyie opportunity
of giving the' sanction and encourage
ment of government to the great enter",
prise contemplated by this bill."
In his opposition Senator Culberson
takes the opposite view of the protection
given the public by the proposed In
corporation. "It Is not sound polIcyNo
concentrate and tie up In the hands of
a few men such a vast sum of money,"
he says. "So also the policy Is unsound
of ohartering n corporation with' such
powers and putting no limit or restric
tion on the character of the vast sums'
which are to be received by It for use
and distribution without legal check or
hindrance. Will the funds be In part or
In whole the securities of the Standard
Oil trust or other gigantic monopolies'
"It seems clear to me that congress
should not thus encourage and foster
the massing and holding together of
such 'ast finances ndr lend Its authority
to the perpetuation of the fruits of
combinations and conspiracies again
