Tha policy of tha Administration in
thaae eulta against consolidated cor

the scattered constituents, still allied
la common Interests and ownership, to
do their business at a somewhat great-
cost, which the public will chiefly
pay: but It can no more restore the old
condition of competition than It can

It la easier to destroy than to up-

Ignorant or ruthless hand Into a great
engine running at full speed may de-
troy It. One man may destroy a
uildlng upon whose energies thou
sands have tolled. Tha agents of Gov
ernment, now so active In throwing
missiles Into the grest machine of Na
tional Industry, will assuredly make
their Impression.
But It Is of llttls use to rail against
mistaken msthods of securing progreaa.
The Administration, If doing nothing
mora, la at least demonstrating the In
efficiency and inutility of tha Sherman
anti-trust law. What we aa business
men should turn our mlnda to at pres

legislation which will be forward and

Cltea Case of ImU Bask,
Ths fact that tha Second Bask of tha
United Btetee was ehartsred by tha
Government waa only aa Invitation to

Its chief enemies were the Government
directors of the bank, who bad acted
