Entered at the Post office at Accomac o. va., an second class matter. Saturday december 16. 1911. The serial Story message is a new wrinkle adopted by president Taft. He advised Congress at the opening of the present session of his intention to submit several messages each on a different subject. He first tackles the anti Trust Law incidentally criticising t. Roosevelt in a sentence beginning Quot those critics who speak of this disintegration of the Trust As a Mere change of the Quot judicial mind of the president is Well revealed in the message. It reads like a court decision and is in fact chiefly a defence of the supreme courts action in Reading into the Sherman Law the ? reasonable Quot restraint of Trade features. Or. Taft hands his administration a deft compliment and that of his predecessor a neat rebuke by the statement that Only in the last three or four years has the government really accomplished anything Worth while in Trust busting. It is Only just to or. Taft to say that this document is the strongest and most vigorous message he has yet sent to Congress. Furthermore it has the Merit of Brevity. For that reason if nothing More the serial message is a pleasing innovation. It is not Likely however that a democratic Congress will take kindly to the presidents recommendation for the creation of a Federal corporation commission which might Supply the constructive legislation for control of combinations and to Aid the courts in dissolving and re creating trusts. Congress the Only legislative authority will be slow to Delegate to irresponsible outsiders Powers which would be almost Quot certain to infringe upon or conflict with the rights and prerogatives of the Law making lady. The customary Energy of denunciation is lacking in colonel Roosevelt a treatment of Wharton barkers testimony be fore the Senate committee on interstate Commerce. Or. Roosevelt mildly characterizes it As a a pipe but is it it wears All the aspects of truth. It coincides with Well known circumstances tending to confirm or. Barkers charge that Wall Street was behind Roosevelt in the closing weeks of the 1904 Campaign. The Public has not forgotten or. Roosevelt a Quot dear Harriman a letter nor f the subsequently proven fact that or. Harriman raised a Large fund to swing the election to Roosevelt in new York state in the last Days of the Campaign. Only the most innocent and guileless will believe that or. Harriman a activities did not have a string tied to them in the form of an understanding with the other Quot practical Man a whose interests he served. And subsequently the Railroad measure which or. Roosevelt gave his full endorsement was precisely the one which or. Harriman himself desired. It was through no fault of Roosevelt that the bargain miscarried. The Senate committee or interstate committee might Well summon or. Roosevelt to discuss this Quot pipe dream a with it a few hours inasmuch As or. Roosevelt seems to be in no haste to defend himself. The Republican National convention to nominate the next candidates for pres ident and vice president will be held in Chicago the opening Day being tuesday june 18th., 1912. This conclusion was reached at a meeting of the Republican National committee in Washington on tuesday at the instance of or. Taft and in accordance with his wishes. The Taft men were in control and dominated Allol the committee proceedings in the interest of the. President. Taft wanted and Hitchcock the big Boss of four years ago was put aside for Hilles. Taft did not approve of the election of delegates by direct vote in primaries and the primary plan was put aside allowing each state committee to determine the plan. Taft was for Chicago As the convention City and practically got it without a contest. Taft was truly Quot in the the insurgents had no part in the proceedings and the adherents of Teddy on the committee in the language of their chief Quot were beaten to a All of which doubtless Means that Taft will be re nominated. Arizona recently admitted into the Union Quot made Good a at the first state election on tuesday in a Way to leave no doubt in the mind of any Democrat that she was entitled to statehood. As the result of that election the democrats of Arizona will place two members in the United states Senate one member in the of representatives a governor in fhe state Capitol and will make a clean sweep of the state ticket. Every county in the state except two it is claimed will return democratic majorities. Plans Are rapidly being perfected for the enlargement of Pine Camp the tuberculosis Sanatorium of Richmond. This institution still in its infancy has proved to be such a valuable Factor in fighting consumption that the association backing the work has ordered the erection of a hew infirmary which will also contain a commodious dining room and Kitchen for the use of patients. It is expected that the new building will be ready for use by the first of the year. Twenty one boys from the Southern states who won prizes this year for raising Banner crops of Corn arrived in Washington monday and will spend the rest of the week talking in the sights of the National Capitol one of the rewards of their efforts. Secretary of agriculture Wilson presented each of the boys a diploma in recognition of the Good work done by them in the advancement of agriculture.
