address as follows:
It Is a very real pleasure to rue to

wan well that he should do so. U:it
Inning finally raado up her mind in
each great crisis of our history nor
weifiht. lias been east unhCRitntingly
lii.on tho right side and has been
mud irresintable. This was true
liko at tho time of tho Declaration
Independence at the time of the
Milpotion of tho Constitution aid
durltiK the terrible years when the
I no was the preservation of the
'Pennsylvania soil Is historic. It
V!: Pcii'iisylviniia's borders that the
miost opened which wu to decide
' eilier the.' valiant soldiers of
nice would bo able to bar this
liiinent against the domination of
.e people of tho linsliwh-speaKinfi
louies. It was on Pennsylvania's
il thut the Declaration of lndc-
im ndence was signed aDd the Constl-
nuioUHl convention hold. It was in
Pennsylvania that Vahta&;ton win-
tered at Valley Forjje und by keeping
his urniy together dudng; thut winter
definitely turned the" scales in our
favor in tho contest for Independ-
ence. It was again on Pennsylv-
ania's! soil at (Icttysburg that the
tide turned In tho civil war. In the
composition of her people moreover
Pennsylvania Una epitomized the
composition of our Union; for here
runny Old World raeoa have mingled
t!:.-ir blood to make that new type
i - American. Finally in nil the
branches of the public service. In
peace and war tho native or adopted
citizens of Pennsylvania have attalu-
ed the highest eminence.
Ido not however coiuo here-today
to speak ou!y of tho past and still

changes of tin? past ci-nlury have
produced it tolally new so: of coadi
tions under which nov evl's I'Iivm
!sh ; and for these new evils new
rented Ipa must bo devised.
Some of these evils can be trap-
pled ith by private of fort only: t' i
we n.rer can afford to forgot that
fn the last analysis the chief fin lor
lu personal success and indeed In
national Rreittneris must be the stur-
dy self-reliant character of tho In-
dividual citizen. Hut many of those
evils me cf such a nut hit that no
private effort enn avail aKulust them.
These evils therefor- raust be grap-
pled with by governmental action
In some ruses tills governmental ac-
tion must hf exercised by thn several
States individually. In yet. others
it has become incre.isintiy evident
thut no efficient State action Is pos-
sible and that we need thru Kocu-
tive action tiiru legislation and
thru judicial interpretation hml con-
struction of law to increase the pow-
er of tho Federal Government.
If wo fail thus to Increase il. wc
show our Impotence and leave nl the
mercy of those ingenious lesal advis
ers nt the holders of vast cuporat
wealth who. in the performance of
what they regard as their duty and
to serve the ends of their clienis.
Invoke the law at one time for the
confounding of their rivals and at
anolher time sirive for the iiuliflea-
tioti of the law. iu order that they
themselves may be left free to work
their unbridled will on those same
rivals o' on those who labor for
them or on the general public. In
the exercise of their profession and
In the service of their clients these
astute lawyers strive to prevent the
passage of efficient la vs and strive
to if cure Judicial determination of
those that pass which shall emascu-
late them. They .hi i.at. invoke the
Coutitlt.ution in order to compel the
due observance of law alike by rich
and poor by great and small; on tho
contrary they tiro ceaselesly on the
watch to cry out that tho Constitu-
tion is Aiolaled whenever any effort
Is made to Invoke the aid of lle Na-
tional Ooveitinieiit. whether for the
efficient regulation of railroals for
the eflclent .jiipei'Th'.i ni "t p.'-a. ch -porallons

called "labor statues."
