Washington. D. C. Jan. :-"The
mere breaking up of large combina-
tion! Into a number of separate parta
by no means meets the whol Trust
question" says Secretary Nagel of
the Department of Commerce and La-
bor In his annual report transmitted
today to President Taft.
Secretary Nagel declares that the
Sherman law has been proved to be
an effective statute beyond all doubt
and that a degree of combination of
capital Is quite necessary but he
adds that the Supreme Court deci-
sion In the Standard Oil and Tobacco
cauh hnve demonstrated that the
next 9tep in the control of great In-
dustrial corporations will be the
rreutlon of a permanent federal
How much control shall bo ever-

eral Interpolation or ether means
which have been advocated recently
by Judge Klliert H Gary George W.
Perkins and other financiers before
the Senate committee which ha? been
conducting hearings to determine
whnt i nance would be desirable in
the anti-trust laws. Secretary NaRel
does not definitely say. He favors
h wever a development of the pow-
ers and si ope of the llureau of Cor-
porat'on?. "A certain degree of combination
of (npttal Is admittedly etsontlal to
the earning on of our great business
enterprlsoF" says Secretary Nagel.
"To control properly such necessary
combinations we must have some ad-
nilnlvt rathe federal office or com
munion which shall make thin work
lt! b islaoss
"We must have a permanent au-
thority which shall by steadv and
continuous supervision and publicity
safeguard the pcbllc Interests and at
the same time allow full sro.c for
necessary and proper bislness effi-
ciency and development.
"The decisions of the Supreme
Court In the Standard Oil and Ameri-
can Tobacco Company cases have
brought forcibly to the fubWc atten-
tion a fact repcatedlv presented l.i

Imperative need for the positive ad-
ministrative regulation of grout In
dust rial corporations.
"The recent decisions and roorgar.-
l7atlons which followed have made li
clear that another Imperative step
remains to be taken and that this U

islation of a broad svstem of super-

"Whether this hall be done by
means of federal Incorporation or by
a leder.il office or commlsslo:. exer-
cising powers of rest latlon and su-
pervision mnv be a secondary ques-
tion. The first consideration npnonrs
to be the establishment of perma-
nent administrative publicity repu-
tation and supervision. Public opln.
lot. and the views of manv rorpore
tlon managers are as one."
Secreiary Nauel recommends that
the Hureae of Corporations be de-
veloped to t-ike up the form of su-
pervision he suggests. It would be
but a loclca' expansion of the bu-
reau's operations and policy which
ho sas. have relied solely oa pub-
licity for the last eight years and
have demonstrated beyond question
what a svstem of permanent super-
vision can do.
