nd through Just exactly what we are
passing through today and yet they
lived to aee thia nation live on and
prosper aa has no other nation on
earth, It would probably be a source
of Inspire!ion and ecouragement to
many of us to read back and famll
iariee ouraelvea with the bualneas
panics of 1837, 1857,1073 and 1893,
and even as late as 1907, a depres
sion less severe but none the less
In 1837 ninety per cent of all the
factories In the east i upended op
eration rectories and trades gen
erally stopped work, fetvtes repudl- ■
ated their bonds and it became
necessary, in many states to enact
laws to prevent the sale of property
for debts. Many of the greatest
firms of that day failed, the number
running into tens of thousands with
total liabilities running Into him-;
dreds of millions of dollars. Cotton!
was ten cents a pound and the price I
paid for labor was insufficient to
ment situation was acute to the !
buy bread, while the unemploy
poln» of provoking riots This 'de
pression" came to an end. "it, al
ways has."
Following 1887 with its de
pression, bringing failures among
great financial institutions and
railroads, with Industry suspended
and labor in distress, a year when
mobs matched through the street#
of New York City with cries of
'Bread of Death"! In 1860 a quick
recovery followed. "It always has. ’
Thirteen years after the panic of
1873 acme upon the country in full
force and down went some of the
largest financial institutions of that
day, among them H, B Claflin it
Co. a name famous in the whole
sale annals of that day, Within two
years the railroads of the country
had defaulted In the sum approach
ing one billion dollars. Marketing
the cotton crop was impossible and
foreign shipping paralveed, w-ith the
result of a depressed local market,
carrying with it prices far below
manufacturing costs.
A ciiuil reading of trade jour
nals and statistics of the years be
tween 1873 and 1875 make present
day conditions assume a roseate hue
Those conditions, which while they
endured, cast a blight upon com
merce and industry of this country,
were succeeded from 1879 by years
of prosperity and business develop
ment beyond the dreams of the moot
optimistic of that day. The clouds
lifted and the sun shone forth upon
happier days and a Joyful and
prosperous people. Prosperity fol
lowed depression—"It always has!"
Then came 1893, ushering in two
years of disaster for the industry,
commerce and finance of the na
tion. One authority on the subject
of the business collapse of that
year places the total liabilities at
fifty percent greater than in 1873.
Again the value of ratlwey stocks
melted away and the problem of
unemployment reached the danger
point, in two years recovery start
ed, prices soared and this nation
became again a happy and prosper
ous people. The clouds burst and
the rain falls but in due time it
atpps. "It always has!” Prosperity
follows depression—"It always has!”
