permitted to extort almost without limit
from the laboring millions. The money
men of England are prosperous aud in
dependent, but the great masses of the
people are mere hewers of wood and
drawers of water mere slaves, to the mon

And so it will be here, should the tune
ever come when the money lords shall be
permitted to exaet whatever interest they
may choose. The Federal government
has already set the example and estab

aristocracy, and it becomes the duty of
the States to rebuke the Federal govern

proposed outrage by passing such laws
as will keep interest at reasonable rates.
