Apart from the action of the ^^mTM House in passing the General Staff Bill, which we have so often warmly commended, by a vote of 153 to 52, and the debate in the Senate on party responsibility for the tariff on coal, the interest of both houses last week was practically absorbed in the new legislation proposed for the regulation of trusts. At the very beginning of the week, Senator Hoar, the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee of the upper house, introduced his well-considered and unexpectedly radical bill, and the day following Attorney-General Knox, acting upon the requests he had received from the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, outlined the legislation he believed essential to cope with the evil of industrial monopoly. Were it not for the overshadowing importance of Mr. Knox's letter setting forth the programme of the Administration, we should describe in detail Senator Hoar's bill and outline his elaborate speech in support of it. At present, however, we shall only note that the bill applies to all corporations selling their products in other States than those in which they are chartered, establishes publicit)' for all their operations, and forbids attempts to break down competitors by k'wering prices in specific localities or by binding purchasers not to buy of competitors. The programme of AttorneyGeneral Knox is more limited in its scope, but proceeds strongly along the line of dealing with the worst evils first and establishing in the courts the right of Congress to go further as occasion demands. The Attorney-General starts out with the declaration that the end sought is not the destruction of combinations, but their regulation and the correction of "the tendency toward monopolization of the industrial business of the country." In his judgment, he says, monopoly would

be impossible in this country, where abundant capital is within the reach of capable and enterprising men, if competition were assured a fair and open field. The advantages of production on a colossal scale, he points out, are often more than counterbalanced by "the close economies possible through direct, personal, interested management." "If the law will guarantee to the smaller producer protection against piratical methods in competition, and keep the highways to the market open and available to him for the same tolls charged to his powerful competitor, he will manage to live and thrive to an astonishing degree." With this view of the situation, he would restrict anti-trust legislation to the securing of equal freight rates and the prevention of what he aptly calls "predatory competition."

In order to secure equal TF«'ghteiute"' freight rates the AttorneyGeneral recommends that legislation be directed against those who receive as well as those who give the advantages of discrimination, and that the legislation against the recipients "take the form of penalizing the transportation of goods produced by the guilty parties, and the Federal Courts be given power to restrain such transportation at the suit of the Government." The Attorney-General points out that, "whatever Congress may have designed " in the Inter-State Commerce Act, that act ■' as construed by the courts" cannot easily be employed to punish shippers for participating in unjust discriminations. "The courts have held," he says, " that to constitute an unjust discrimination it is necessary to prove that at the time the unlawful lower rate was being granted to the favored shipper the higher lawful rate was imposed against another shipper on like commodities be
