Boston, Aug. 25. The week's work
for President Roosevelt In his trip
through New England begun In earnest
this afternoon when he departed from
the summer home of the junior senator
of Massachusetts, Hon Henry Cabot
Lodge, at Nahant, and, amid the en
thusiasm of the greatest number of
people he has faced since the Pitts
burg visit on July 4, rode Into Lynn
under cavalry escort and spoke from a
platform at city hall. Then he was
taken to Boston by a special train and
on arrival went to Symphony hall,
there addressing a great gathering of
Boston business men. His speech here
was devoted almost entirely to consider
ation of the trust question.
The President's Speech.
Governor Crane, Mayor Collins, Men and
Women of Boston:
I am glad to have the chance of saying
a few words to you this evening. There
are several matters that I should like to
discuss, and I can say In all sincerity
that when t corno here to New England,
when 1 come to Boston, I like to go over
as many subjects as possible, so that I
can get light on them. ' ,
I have great faith In your Judgment" I
want to take up this evening the general
question of our economic and social rela
tions with specific refer e'nee to that prob
lem with which I. think our people ara
greatly concerning themselves the prob
lem of our complex social condition as
Intensified by the existence of the great
corporations which wo rather loosely de
signate as trusts. But r wish to say one
or two things as preliminary. In the Mrst
place, I have not come here to say that
I have discovered a patent cure-all for
When people's minds are greatly agi
tated on any subject nwj especially when
they feel deeply but rather vaguely that
conditions are not right. It is far pleas
nnter in addressing them to lie in
different as to what you proml-e, but is
much less pleasant afterward.
In the first place, if a man is honest, he
will try just as hard to keep a promise
made on the stump as one made off the
stump. In the second place, if the people
keep their heads they won't wish prom
ises to be made which are Impossible of
The Majority Must Do Right.
Mankind goes ahead but slowly unci It
govs ahead mostly through each of the
majoilty of us trying to do the best that
lfc In him and doing It In the must Intel
ligent and sanest way. V founded our
republic on the theory that the average
man will as a rule, do the right thin,;;
that In the long run the majority are go
ing to decide for what Is sane and whole,
tnme. If our fathers were mistaken In
that theory; If ever the mass of the pen
plo do what Is unwholesome, what Is
wrong; then the republic cannot stand.
In the long run, we aro going to go up or
go down according as the average stand
ard ol our citizenship does or docs not
wait ip growth and grace.
Now, when wo come to the question of
good citizenship, the Ilrst requisite Is
that the man shall do the homely, every
day hum-drum duties well, A man is not
n good citizen, 1 do not care how lofty
Us thoughts uio about citizenship 111 the
ubstract, If In tho concrete his actions do
not hear them out, Ho has sot to be a
good bread winner; ho has got to tako
care of ills wife and children; ho has
got to be a neighbor whom his neighbors
But ho must do mote than that. In this
country of ours the average citizen has
got to devote a good deal of thought and
time to tho affairs of state as a whole or
thoao affairs mo going to go backward.
That tlmu must bo devoted steadily and
Intelligently, The man or woman who
makes up for ten days' indifference to
duty by a eleven days' morbid repentance
about that Indifference, is of very scant
utu In the wpiid.
Sudden Reform Is Difficult.
Now in tho sumo way, It Is of no possl
blo use to decline to go through all tho
ordinary duties uf citizenship for a long
space of time and then maidenly get up
nnd feci angry about something or sonio
body, not clearly detiued In one's mind
nnd demand reform as If it was a con

tury. Speaking acudemlually wo can, tic
rordlng to our several temperaments, re
gard that tho old lights have vanished or
,not as wo choose, Boston and tho thriv
ing cities of Massachusetts have been
built up as a result of thoso forces. There
Is bat llttln usu hi regretting that things
have not shaped themselves differently.
3'ho practical thing to do la to faco tho
conditions us they are and see If wo can

Ihem. We aio not going to gel any com.
plcto or perfect solution for nil of the
evils which come to our minds when wo
think of the trusts by any single action
on our part, A good many actions In a
ood many different ways will be re
julred before wo cet many of thoso
ivlls oven partially remedied.
It Is a llttlo illflleu'i to set clearly bo
loro us nil of tho evils, but I think that
hose gentlemen nnd especially those gon,
llemcn of largo means who deny that tho
vlls exist are acting with great folly. I
in far from being against property when
I ask that tho q jn of trusts bo taken
up. I am acting .jo moHt eonsorvntlvo
sense In propervys Interest. When a
great corporation Is sued for violating tho
anti-trust law, It Is not a move against
property; It Is a move In favor of prop
erty because when you can make It evi
dent that all men, big and small, havo
to obey the law, you are putting the safe
guard of law around all men. When you
make It evident that no man shall be ex
cused for violating the law. you make It
evident that every mini will be protected
from violation of the law. I am Inclined
to think that much the greatest trouble
In any Immediate handling of the ques
tion of trust comes from outs system of
government. If what we read In the pa
pers Is two they are speaking of a num
ber of International trusts now.
Should Have Fixed Policy.
It would bo very difficult for any
set of laws, on our part, t'o deal com
pletely with a problem which becomes In
ternational In Its bearlncs but a u'reut
deal can bo done In vnrloua ways. A
great deal Is being done and a great deal
more can bo done If wo can see that tho
power Is put somewhero to do It. On tho
whole our system of government has
worked morvelously well, tho system of
dividing the functions of government, of
arranging a scheme under which Maine,
Louisiana, Oregon, Idaho, New York and
South Carolina can all come In together
for certain purposes and yet each be al
lowed to work its salvation as It desires;
along certain lines. But while I most
firmly believe In fixity of policy, I do not
bellcvo that that policy should be fossil
ized, and If It Is to be changed we must
change our governmental method to meet
I believe with all my heart In the New
England town meeting, but you cannot
work the New England town meeting in
Boston. You have got to try something
else. Now when this government was
founded, there wcro no great individual
or corporate fortunes. Everything has
been revolutionized In tho business world
and the progress of civilization from be
ing a trickle has become a torrent. There
was no particular thing at that time to
bother as to whether the nation or the
state had control of the corporations.
Now, however, the exact reversG is the
case and remember 1 say, "corporations."
1 do not say merely trusts, merely com
binations of corporations under certain
peculiar conditions. For Instnnce eonie
time ago the attorney general took ac
tion against a certain trust. There has
been considerable discussion as to wheth
er the trust aimed at would seek to get
out from under the law by becoming a
I want laws to enable us to deal with
It. no matter what shape It takes. I want
to see the government able to get at It
TleTlnltely, so that the'-nctlon of the gov
ernment cannot be evaded by any turn
ing, within or without federal or state
statutes. At present we have really no
efficient control over a big corporation
which docs business in more than one
state. 1 do not think you can get ac
tion by any state, action by all the states,
that will give us satisfactory control of
the trusts or big corporations.
""Of co'urse, It is a mere truism that the
corporation is the creature of the state;
that the state Is sovereign.. Now I want
to make a real and not a nomlnalsover
elgn; to have some one sovereign to
which the corporation shall be really, and
Reckless Law Making.
At present If we pass laws nobody can
tell whether they will amount to any
thing. Now that has two bad effects. In
the first place the corporation becomes
indifferent to the law making body and In
the next place, gentlemen, the law-making
body gets into that most pernicious
custom of passing a law, not with refer
ence to what will be done under it. but
with reference to Its effects on the opin
ions of the votcis. That Is a bad thing.
When any body of law-makers passes a
law not solely with reference to whether
that law will do good or 111, but with the
knowledge that not much will coma of
It, and yet that, perhaps, the people, as a
whole, will likely think It was good It
does not speak well for tho law-makers
and It does not speak very well for tho
people, either. What I hope to see Is
power given to the national legislature
which shad make tho control real, It
would bo an excellent thing if wo could
havo all tho states act on somewhat sim
ilar lines, so that It would bo unnecessary
for tho national government to act, but
all of you know perfectly well that states
will not act on sumowhat similar lines.
Nothing has been dono In the direction
of Intelligent dealing by the states as a
collective body with these great corpora
tlons. Here In Massachusetts you havo
what I regard as on tho whole, excellent
corporation laws. I think that moat of
our difficulties would bo In a fair way of
solution if wu had the power to put on
the national statute books laws for tho
nation much like those you havo hero, on
tho subject of coiporatlons In Massachus
etts. Publicity Wanted.
Tho Ilrst thing wc want Is publicity ond
1 do not mean publicity as a favor by
sonio corporations, I mean It as a right
from all corporations affected by tho law.
As far as thu anti-trust laws go they will
bo enforced. No suit will bo undertaken
lor tho sake of seeming to iindertnko It,
livery suit that Is undertaken will bo
begun because tho great lawyer and up
right man whom wo uro so fortunate as
to havo ii3 attorney genernl, Mr, Knox,
believes that there is n violation of tho
law which wo can get at, and when tho
suit Is undertaken It won't lie compro
mised excepting on thu basis that tho gov.
AVIso laws can do something and wo
nro not to bo exorcised If wo fall to In
sist upon those wlso laws, Honest admin
istration of tho laws can do aimcthlng
more, mid still less aro wo to ho excused,
as 'a people, If wo condoiio or connlvo at
a failure to administer tho laws by tho
public servants of tho people, After those
laws havo been enacted, aftor thoy iiavo
been ouforced. It will remain true, hero In
this contiiry, as It has been truo In every
century throughout history, that tho fun
damental factor in each man's success In
llfo must bo that man's own, character;
the total mini of tho qualities of truth
fulness, earnestness, energy, thrift and
business ability on his part. Tho state
cannot do as much for you as you can
do for the state, f man falls. 1 urn sorry
for him, I will help him as far as possl

The Man Supposed to Have Been
Drowned at Coney Island Res
cued by a Pishing Smack.
By Exclusive Wire (rom The Associated l'rcs.
Now York, Aug. 25. Henry W. Hol
lenberg, vho disappeared from Coney
Island two weeks ngo, and who was
supposed to havo drowned arrived nt
his homo in Now Noohellc today. He
said he was landed there early this
morning by n Hailing smack by which'
ho had been picked up at sea. Only
members of his family nnd a physician
wore allowed to see him. The doctor
said that Ilollenberg was In no con
dition to seo 8trangers nt present.
Hollenberg's story Is that ho was
carried out to sen by the undertow
while In swlmlng. Ills cries for help
attracted no attention from the crowds
on the beach nnd he had been carried
out a long distance when he managed
to get hold of a piece of wreckage
that drifted towards him and by means
of this supported himself until rescued
by tho fishing smack. He was dressed
In an old suit of clothes which he
said had been given him by the enp
taln of the vessel. The name of the
smack Is not known nor Is any details
of Hollenberg's strange experience ob
tainable at present.
A man named Gray was drowned nt
Coney Island on the day of Hollen
berg's disappearance. His body was
recovered. Before It was found the
police entertained a theory that Gray
nnd Hollenberg had gone away to
gether and had left suits of clothing In
a bathing house to give the Impression
that they had been drowned.
