The Cummins policy
regards the leading Issues of the day
may fairly be defined as a mean be-
tween the views of President Taft and
those of Senator a little
more advanced than the former and
at the same time not so radical as

the proper way to remedy the exist-

the corporations and make war on
the railroads, a speech delivered

and Pennsylvania, according to the
