Send Them to Jail
President Taft is demanding to
know with great bravado, what sin
gle case of combination in restraint
of trade which ought to be con
detuned could not be reached by
the supreme court's interpretation
of the Anti-Trust law in the Stand
nrd Oil and Tobacco trust cases.
1 nere are tew who take issue
witlt the president. The average
man believes that the trusts conk
be reached if the government would
set out in good faith to reach them
I he vital issue is not whether
the trusts could be reached. The
really important question is: Why
is 11 tuat not a single guilty trust
magnate nus neon sent to 1111, or
even called to the bar of justice?
1 lie answer is that the government
does not send trust magnates to jail
nor control the trusts because the
trusts control the staudpat rcptibli
can machine, and for fourteen years
the staudpat republican machine, in
recognition of the campaign fund
donations and other favors, has
permitted special privilege to name
the man to he in charge of the pros
ecuting machinery ol the govern
The present Attorney General
Oeorge W. Wickershant, whose
last act before taking charge of the
government prosecuting machinery
was to draw down his share of a
luudsome fee paid his law firm by
the sugar trust. When a move
ment was started to bring about a
congressional investigation of the
sugar trust, Mr. Wickershnut head-
d it off by having President Taft
send a message to congress advising
against the investigation on the
ground that it might give immunity
to lite men Higher up and other
wise embarrass the administration.
Although the trust practically ad
milted having stolen over $2,000,
000 from the government by re
turning it after the crime was (lis
covered, not a single one of the
trust magnates into whose pockets
the $2,000,000 would have gone
Had not the theft been discovered,
wus even called to the bar of just
ice, much less punished. Mr.
Wlckershatu permitted an under
ling secretary and a few dock hands
to ulnucstaud the vengeance of the
law. When American sugar inter
ests purchased vast tracts of rich
sugar lauds in the Philippines in
violation of the law, Mr. Wicker-
sham again came to the rescue
with nu opinion upholding the
Mr. Wickershant is now posing
as a great trust buster. He pre
tends that he will drive the trusts
out of business, and some of the
trusts pretend that they take his
threats seriously. But the record
of the attorney general is not one
that gives the people any reason to
hope for enforcement of the law
against the criminal trusts or guilty
trust magnates. The first thing
Mr. Wickershant did upon taking
office was to drop iuiortaiit suits
against members of the beef truM.
His explanation was that he did
not believe the trust officials meant
to do wrottg,
The extent of Wall street's fear
of Mr. Wickershuin as a prosecuter
of trust magnates is indicated by
the remark of J. P. Morgan, who,
