How The Corruption Conqueror Defeated The Trust Echo
He then used the Elkins Act tool in 1903 which prevented rebates in the railroad business. This tool also forced the railroad companies to publish their rates so they couldn't charge innocent citizens without notice.
The Trust Echo then turned to the all powerful weapon, the Hepburn Act in 1906 which allowed the Interstate Commerce Commission to establish a maximum rate. It also prevented railroad companies from giving free passes to people other than employees.
The Corruption Conqueror also crushed corruption across the board, even in the food industry. In 1906 he used the Food and Drug Inspection Act tool to prevent mislabeling of foodstuffs and drugs, squashing out corruption in this area.
He then followed that up in 1906 by using his Meat Inspection Act weapon. This weapon prevented meat from being mislabeled, as well as ensured that meat products were slaughtered under sanitary conditions.
