of hi. address were his declaration .
for expansion and his argument on '
trusts. He said In part:
W bear It said that the tariff I
the mother of trust, and that they
are the source of ail sorts of evil.
We do have triutu, and some of them
are a bad a they are reported, but
they are not the product of the tariff
and if they were, the tariff with Ua
attendant prosperity and trust, la
better than free trade and idleness,
ruin, want hunger, soup house, and
rags. That the tariff la not responsible
for trust. Is shown by the fact that
while they have free trade In Eng
land, yet they also have more trusts In
that country than In any other.
"The trust, are simply a feature ot
our modern business condition, with:
respect to which party line, cannot
be drawn. We have come to a plac
where we must sell abroad or restrict
our production. To sell abroad we
must compete; to compete we must
economise, and to economize we must
lower wage, or combine. Lower wage
we do not want and will not have, and
therefore we accept the alternative and
combine. And now, just when the nec
essity Is upon us to find our market
for our surplus products, the way
to the best markets of all la opened
by the annexation ot Hawaii and th.
war with Spain. It Is not Europe, but
in Asia, where we are to find relief.
