By a Great Man Senator La Follette
of Wisconsin in Corvallis.
One of the most remarkable
meetings ever held in Corvallis,
occurred Tuesday night. It was a
lecture, and Senator LaFollette was
the lecturer. It was remarkable
from several standpoints. No such
a philippic against centralized
wealth and the domineering meth
od of the over-rich was ever deliv
ered in Corvallis. A more absorb
ing word paintirg of the doings of
trusts was ever pictured here. A
more interesting speaker never
stood on tbe Opera House platform.
A man whose utterances bore more
of tbe earmarks of honesty and sin
cerity never hurled more powerful
sentences at a Corvallis audience.
A big audience never sat more pa
tiently and more interestedly and
listened to a speaker for so long a
Senator LaFollette spoke for three
mortal Hours, rle was late in ar
rival, and the audience had waited
for him nearly an hour when he
began. In all the people occupied
their seats nearly four hours. It
was a discusson of problems of
government, and the fact that an
audience sat so long and listened
with such consuming interest, tells
the story of the power of the speak
er. It was a cold audience in the
beginning, but long before the close
it was enthusiastic. The . telling
points in the address were loudly
applauded. In the closing moments
everybody was full of good humor
and enthusiastic. More than all,
everybody was the warm admirer
and deep sympathizer with Senator
Three hours covers a wide range
when the speaker talks as fast as
does this man from Wiscoasm.
What he said couldn't even be
hinted at here. His address would
cover two or three pages in fine
type in a metropolitan daily. It
would take an ordinary reader
more than half a day to read it
aloud. But there wasn't a minute
of it, nor a sentence in it that was
not full oi power and moment. He
told of the government in the be
ginning when corruption was un
known. Seventy-seven years ago,
DeToqueville, the French philso
pher, wrote of the American gov
ernment after a long study of it in
this country, "I have not heard of
a single case of corruption in' gov
ernmental affairs." ' That was a
description of affairs at Washington
in 1830. Corruption was unknown.
Nineteen years ago, James Bryce
in a similar book, wrote that the
corporations are cprrnpting the
government, and that their influ
ence on the dishonest congressmen
corrupted the whole, lump so far
as results are : concerned! With
such the trend, what is the condi
tion of affairs today, when corpor
ation influences are so vastly mag
nified? 'In the past 30 years there
have been but two congresses that
the railroads did not control,'' ex
claimed the speaker. One was in
1 887, when the inter-state commerce
bill was passed after it had failed
in 13 sessions, and the other was
in 1906, when the rate bill was pass
ed. 'Even the latter was not be
yond the pale of railroad influences
because the rate bill is ineffective,
said Mr. LaFollette because it does
not give tbe commission power to
what we have in the line of
Second Hend Goods. If you will
do so. you may find just what you
want und what you need. Beside,
you can save some money, not
only in second hand goods, but
in NEW Goods as well.
ascertain the value of railroad prop
erties for the purpose of fixing rates
Senator LaFollette declared h t
representative government is almost
dead in this country. In the be
ginning.the individual's vote count
ed for something, in that the re
presentative sent to Washington
carried out the wishes of constitu
ents. They do it no longer, because
after they get to Washington
enough of them are found for the
corporations to control them and
congress, and consequently control
legislation. He rscited the steps
by which corporations have devel
oped, first into competing compan
ies, but now into merged trusts in
which every corporation in an in
dustry is controlled by two or three
m.n. The cutput of industry
is actually controlled. The iron of
the country is bodily controlledby
the steel corporation. It has pow
er to fix thj price, and it ' fixeit
and requires the consumer to pay
tbat price. It put $400,oob,0o6 in
to its business, and in six short
years earned enough toco able is
capital. With but 400 millions in,
the beginning, it capitalized at
1,400 millions and paid big divi
dends on that sum, It is robbery
of the people, declared the speaker,
pure and simple. The same condi
tions are true of coal. The same
of oil, of sugar, of all the necessar
ies of life in fact, and the peopb of
the country are in industrial servi
tude. They have to pay what the
trusts ask.. They cannot avoid it
for the trusts control the product.
From the control of these products
the trusts have passed to the con
trol of legislation; and until the peo
ple throw off the condition their
progress is slow and painful to
what it would be were everbody
given equal rights before the law.
A most significant feature of the
address was the reading beiore the
audience of the names of senators
who voted to defeat desirable
amendments to the rate bill. ; One
of these was by La Follette and it
gave the commission power to as
certain values of railroar s for tbe
purpose of gving rates, Forty sen
ators voted against it, and 27 for
it. The vote he said is costing the
people of the country nearly $500,-
000,000 a year in the higher rail
road rates that have to be paid be
cause the commission cannot con
trol. Among -those who voted
against the amendment was Senator
Fulton of Oregon. When his name
was read, several grcans were utter
ed in various parts of, the house, a
noticeable murmur running through
the entire audience. Senator Gear
in was among the 27 who voted for
the amendment, and when his
name was read the reading was
interrupted by an enthusiastic
burst of applause. Another amend
ment that Senator La Follette of
fered the bill was one to prevent
a federal judge from sitting in the
trial of a railroad case wherein the
defendant owned, stock in the de
fended railroad. "It was an amend
ment," exclaimed the speaker,
"that simply provided that a judge
couldn't sit in the trial of his own
case, and one that I thought would
go through of its own weight with
all voting for it, but; strangely
enough the same 40 votes were
thrown against it. The reading
of the names on this vote disclosed
the name of Senator Fulton among
those who voted it down, " and that
of Senator Gearin among those who
voted for it.
