Mr. Van Hise Favors
WASHINGTON. Feb. IS. While Presl-
dent Charles n Van Hlso of the Uni
versity of Wisconsin was testifying bo
foro the house commerce committee Rep-
lescntattvo Stevens of Minnesota, rank
ing republican of the committee, de
elated the administration Clayton bill for
on Interstate trade commission was un
constitutional In many respects. No
member of the commlteo defended tho
bill, which was framed by Chairman
Clayton and others after conferences
with President Wilson. Tho discussion
which followed seemed to Indicate that a
new Ull might be drawn.
Dr. Van lllse, saying the courts had
been too slow In ticatlng Industrial prob
lems, proposed that a commission should
have broad power, net on Its own Initia
tive without waiting for complaint or
legislation, and that Its findings of fact
should bo accepted as final, with certain
Dr. Van lllse urged that a commission
bo empowered to Investigate tho affair
of any concern so large as to have as
sumed a public Interest or likely to co
operate with other firms In controlling
tho market. He contended that under the
present conditions, the country was as
helpless beforo great Industrial corpora
tions as It was beforo railroads and food
manufacturers came under tho control of
the Interstate Commerce commission and
the pure food law.
"If there had been an Interstate trade
commission when tho United States Steel
corporation was organized, with a great
quantity of capitalization not represented
by Investment, would It later have been
allowed to turn In 3WO.0W.O0O from Its
dividends to make tho aqua purfi" sub
stance?" asked President Van lllse. "The
problem to bo met Is fair distribution of
profits between stockholders and wage
earners. Co-operation Is all right within
limits, but we must have a commission to
watch over It."
Henry R. Towne of New York urged
tho Judiciary committee to combine the
trade commission project with other trust
and commerce proposals In one measure
to carry out the legislative program.
Hindu Predicts the
World Has Known
WASHINGTON, Feb. 13. A prediction
of "the fiercest revolution the world has
ever known" If tho British government
approves the Hindu exclusion policies of
Its colonics, was made today beforo the
houso Immigration committee by Dr. Sun
hlndra Dose, n professor In tho University
of Iowa, during an argument In which he
contended that Hindus, were an Aryan
people, entitled to naturalization here.
He urged that 1f the'HIndus were to be
excluded here a "gentleman's-agreement"
be made between the United Statesand
.-.the British , ,nd,, garment to restrict.
A special law excluding the Hindus
would humiliate us In the eyes of tho
world. It Is not necessary.
"We are a great class of British sub
jects," sold Bose, "and are entitled to
tho rights Of such a' class. ' International
complications may follow an attempt to
"Tho colonies of Great Britain are ex
cluding Hindus," observed Chairman
"The central government In England
has not endorsed such action," replied Dr.
Boso. '"If It does It will precipitate the
fiercest revolution the world has ever
known. The people of India arc awaken
ing, and If they are to remain a part of
tho British empire something must be
done, some solution of this problem ar
rived at which Is moio reasonable than
any yet suggested."
