AN OLD IDEA, BUT A NEW APPLICATION
A group of masked men, with pistols drawn, stop you at night
and take away your watch and money.
That's highway robbery.
Every little while we read of a highway robber convicted and
sentenced to prison for years.
A group of men, federated together in a pool, hold you up with
trade agreements and take your money by destroying, competition.
That's big business.
It, too, is against the statute law and has been for more than
20 years it has always been against the common law.
But how many men who have done it have ever seen the inside
of a jail?
You can count them on the fingers of one hand.
In New Jersey Woodrow Wilson wants to make guilt personal
high toned guilt, respectable, kid-gloved guilt no less than the
petty pilferings of the hounded poor.
His bills for the correction of Jersey's notorious trust evils

unless some person orders that it be done, is conscious that it is be
ing done and expects to profit by the doing of it.
Wilson wants the law to reach out for that person and put him
in the prisoner's dock.
The idea is as old as the age of the race.
It is only the application of it that is new.
So new that you'd almost think, from the way many eminent
persons are acting, that it was soecially designed by twentieth cen
tury demagogues to interfere wirh the whole pastime of plundering

pluck. Briggs You mean luck in
finding some one to pluck.
