EVENING LlflmiKR PHILADELPHIA. WftDftESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1915,
. SCOPE AND AIMS TOLD
Vast Importance to Business
of New Federal Body Ex
timV YOnK, Feb. 17For the first
time the plans and scope of the new Fed
eral Trade Commission were explained
liefe today by Joseph F. Davles, United
States Commissioner of Corporations, who
poke before the Merchants' Association
of New Yolk. Although the trade com
mission law was one of the most Impor
tant mensures of tho Administration pro
gram, little has been heard of It since Its
passage by Congress. It affects every
business, creat or small, which extends
beyond Slate or national boundaries, ex
cepting that of banka and common car
riers, Speaking on the topic "Itecent Trust
Legislation," Mr, Davles said In part:
"In the course of time there will be
available fqr the Federal Trade Commis
sion a large amount of Information col
lated, digested and Interpreted as to the
whole field of Industry In the country.
This agehcy also Is available In the pub
lic Interest In Investigation of the anti
"Tho commission Is charged with the
further duty of Investigating trade condi
tions In foreign countries with reference
to their effect upon our export trade. It
is contended that to extend our foreign
mnrlpt I la nnKBHiini lha( Knmtittiflt Iftli
' be permitted amonc the smaller manufac
turers and exporters of this country to
compete with combinations In foreign
Re countries. What Is needed for the guid
ance ot legislation Is exact Information.'
The speaker said the trado commission
probably would be consulted by the De
partment of Justice In makln'g recom
mendations relative to the manner in
which corporations may adjust their busi
ness. The quasi-Judicial functions of the Fed
eral Trado Commission will be exorc'sed
In passing upon violations of tho Clayton
act, he said.
XI. S. BLOCKADE PROTEST
IS PRAISED IN FRANCE
PAIUS, Feb. 17. America's reply to
Germany's blockade notlllcatton has
brought forth a chorus of praise from the
principal writers In the French press.
Even Georges Clcmcnceau, who hitherto
has been disposed to criticise President
"Wilson, says the President has spoken
tho words the American people expected
fn such a way that Germany has no al
ternative but to back down.
Gabriel Hanotaux says In the Figaro:
'The American note to Germany Is an
act of high historic Initiative and the first
step toward the Inevitable participation of
neutrals In the great events which are
dividing the world. President Wilson wa
obliged to pass from discussion to action.
What do the measures mentioned In the
note mean but that American warships
will fall upon German submarines attack
ing American ships In total disregard of
America's sovereign rights? Either Ger
many can give In or she can disregard
Washington's note and go on with her
plan to force England to capitulate. Then
President Wilson could not recede from
The proposal made by Count von Bern
fctorTf the German Ambassador to the
United States, that Germany would with
draw Its blockade order If the Import of
food was permitted by England arrived
too late for comment, but the newspapers

OF OFFERING A BRIBE
Head of Pennsylvania Examin
ing Board Brings Charges
Accusations of attempted bribery and
repeated Intimidation were brought today
against the Pennsylvania Osteopathic So
ciety by Dr. O. J. Snyder, president of tho
State Hoard of Osteopathic Examiners, In
answer to the charges brought by the sot
clety that 1(11 licensed prnctloner-, In
cluding Doctor Snyder, do not hold diplo
mas from legally Incorporated colleges,
and therefore nro not entitled to practice
In this State.
Doctor Snyder said the present movo to
obtain from the Attorney General a writ
of mandamus rerjulrlng the State to re
voke the licenses Is but the last In h
series of attempts since 19OT to force the
Examiners to Issue licenses to those not
qualified Under tho present law. At that
time. Doctor Snyder ald the secretary of
the society called on him and offered to
give him $5000 If he would use his Influence
to chnnge the law to admit tne 1C5 mem
bers of the society.
Dr, Snyder admitted that the Philadel
phia College and Infirmary of Osteopnthy
Is not Incorporated In this State, but that
Is due, he said, to the fact that the In
stitution does not hold property valued nt
t500,(no, as required by the law for Incor
poration here. Doctor Snyder says the
college Is Incorporated In New Jersey and
has a four-year mrdlcnl course accredited
by the Hoard of Regents of New York, a
rating denied 70 out of 150 medical schools.
Ills own college, the Northern Institute
of Osteopathy, was Incorporated under the
laws of Minnesota until It consolidated
with the parent school In Klrksvlllc, Mo.,
which Is incorporated there.
None of the members of tho society
could bo found who would discuss the
