Bill Denounced as
WASHINGTON, Feb. 20.-Donounclng
the administration trade commission bill
as opening up the 'loveliest graft of a
century" and as "surpassing Russia In
Inquisition," James K. Bennett today told
tho house commerce commltteo that such
a law would drive small corporations out
of business. Representing a number of.
corporations, he questions Its constitu
tionality. "This bill aa at present drawn," ho said,
"would givo the vital secrets of tho small
corporation to Its big competitor. It
would show up tho woak points of tho
small concern nnd open It up to tho at
tacks of its rivals. This thing would
open up tho loveliest graft that you gen
tlemen ever saw. With thousands of spe
cial agents roaming around tho country
prying Into the hundreds ot thousands of
corporations, graft wquW bo widespread.
These agents would have no qualification
but political pull, no civil service ex
amination is required, and -they could bo
sent into any corporation's office to mako
a report which would bo binding on that
corporation. If you give him (CO, 1100 or
$500 ho might bo willing to chango the
report. This is a tremendous inquisitorial
power. Russia never had anything like
this, that gave such power without let
or hindrance." t
Mr. Bennett argued that the bill vio
lated the constitutional guarantee
against unlawful search and sclzuro.
