How did the Constitutional Convention deal with slave trade?

The Constitutional Convention left the slave trade untaxed and untouched. Delegates from the southern States were naturally wary about the prospect of Congress being able to regulate America's interstate and foreign trade. They were afraid that the North would use its influence in Congress to levy taxes on the slave trade and the cotton trade. The delegates from the South pushed for, and won, a compromise on the matter: the Commerce and Slave Trade Compromise. This agreement made it so Congress could regulate interstate and foreign trade, but could not tax exports. This meant that cotton exports from the South would not be affected. In addition, Congress was forbidden from regulating the slave trade for 20 years.

Why might Roosevelt push for reforms have angered some political leaders?

Roosevelt preferred regulation of giant corporations and pushed for anti trust laws. He also endorsed programs for graduated income and inheritance taxes. These were seen as radical for the time. These moves would have gone against special interests and the people they supported in elections. He also pushed for Congress to create a new Department of Commerce and Labor and an important arm was the Bureau of Corporations which was authorized to probe businesses engaged in interstate commerce conservative Republican bosses regarded TR as an unmanageable maverick and a "cowboy." The Democratic platform of 1904 reflected the unhappiness of what they felt were usurpation of legislative and judicial functions. In 1907 there was financial panic known as the "rich man's panic" and was the result of economic trends and billions of dollars in corporation stock that glutted the market. As the turn of the century approached critics of political, economic, and social problems stated that the government had become too complex for the machinery of government ( sound like today?) Angry reformers charged that the government was for, by, and of the crooked corporations. One of the problems with TR is that he was willing to compromise and settle for a half of loaf and often failed to drive reform through its logical conclusion, but he also had a hostile Congress to deal with in his time in office ( sounds like today).
