THE LOAN SHARKS AND
The new Massachusetts law govern
ing the business of loan sharks could
well be studied by our District
guardians who seem unaccountably
slow getting some protective legislation
for this city.
Massachusetts' act takes effect this
week, and is the culmination of careful
consideration and considerable legisla
tive experience with this business. It
is the demonstration that legislation
on this subject is no wild experiment
in an unknown field. It is no foolish
interference with legitimate business.
It is simply the effort to make usury
laws efficient, to give the poor man a
decent chance, to stop one of the worst
kinds of oppression that is exercised in
our cities against the needy and- the
The business is falling rapidly into
control of "chains" of agencies in cities.
If a borrower moves from one town to
another the agency in his new town is
promptly on his trail. Interest rates
actually earned are found in some
agencies to have run to 300 per cent
a year. The heavy risks are found
much exaggerated; losses are really
Most of the loan companies extend
credit for amounts ranging from $5 to
$50. For a loan of $5 one pays in
several companies $1 per week for
seven weeks; for a $10 loan the pay
ments are $1 per week for fifteen
weeks, or $1.50 for ten weeks; for a
$15 loan $2 per week is exacted for ten
weeks, and for a $20 loan, $2.60 per
week for ten w eeks. The favored patron
whose credit is good for $25 pays $1.80
for twenty weeks, or $2 per week for
eighteen weeks. A $50 loan, which is
not often made, calls for three monthly
payments of $21.60.
The new Massachusetts law estab
lishes a supervisor of loan agencies, and
gives him plenary power. After careful
investigation it was found that the
rate of interest could not be fixed by
the law, so provision was made that
its maximum should be 3L per cent a
month, but the State supervisor has
authority to regulate it. No assign
ment of wages by a married man is
legal unless indorsed by his wife, and
in no case is an assignment good unless
accepted in writing by the employer of
A common practice among the Mas
sachusetts companies, it was discovered,
is to have the borrower make his note
for a larger sum than he actually gets.
Then the companies claim that they
are not technically loaning money, but
"buying notes!" This sort of pro
cedure is not to be countenanced. In
order to prevent it the supervisor is
given full power to investigate all
books, papers, and accounts of the
agencies whenever he wishes, so that
he may know whether such transac
tions are going on.
It is a standing reproach to the
government of Washington that our
legislative authority seems unable or
incapable of dealing intelligently with
these problems of the modern, complex
life of cities. Congress contains few
experts in municipal affairs. It ought
to make the best use of those it has.
It ought to seek the experience and
guidance of outside experts in city ad
ministration. These things it notor
iously does not do.
The Washington Times has vivid
recollection of a certain crisis of the
fight for cheaper gas in this city. The
Times hired one of the country's
greatest experts in gas business to
make a presentation of the people's
case for cheaper gas, nhd paid him
$100 a day.
And when he was thus hired and
ready to appear it was necessary to
beg and plead with the chairman of
the House District Committee then
the Hon. Samuel W. Smith, larc but
unlamented to get the privilege of
putting this witness on the stand!
This affair of the loan shark legis
lation has developed a very similar
situation. The Senate's debate the
other day showed how innocent of any
real, useful information are most of
the men whose votes psvill decide what
sort of a law on this loan question
Washington will get, or whether it will
This sort of government is bad for
the city and a discredit to the system
under which it is imposed.
HUNTING THE MOSQUITO
Breaking a butterfly on a wheel has
usually been regarded as an exaggerat
ed use of dynamic energy, but that ever
interesting Tarrytown, 2s. Y., has a
citizen who has adopted a measure for
slaying the pestilent mosquito which
seems scarcely less exaggerated. He
simply waits until the psycho that is,
until the proper moment has arrived,
and blows the aggregated covey of mos
quitoes into Kingdom Come.
There is presumptive evidence that
Tarrytown is not more free from mos
quitoes than any other community
within flying distance of the Jersey
bogs, and George Fox thought long and
deep while he was lying awake at night
chasing the pestilence that buzzes in
darkness. On a recent outing he-bought
for the children a juimber of those
little balloons so dear to the heart of
childhood. Incidentally it seems almost
incredible that a tender father could
devise so diabolical a scheme against
anything as he finally cooked up
against the mosquito. Directed by some
whim which he would have difficulty
in explaining, he filled one of the toy
balloons with citronella, blew it up, and
placed it on the pillow.
Then he blew out the light and
It was not for long that he had to
wait, for in a short timcyi attracted by
the citronella, the mosquitoes began to
gather like crows in a. corn field. With
all the zeal of their race' they began
boring into the inflated balloon, mar
veling in the meantime, no doubt at
the smoothness of the victim's coun
tenance. Suddenly, like the cataclysm
on board the Casabianca burning deck,
thero was an explosion which fairly
shook the room, and when the wreck
age was cleared away it was discovered
that the shock had killed every mos
quito in the neighborhood.
More modest himself, Mr. Fox ex
plains that those which escaped the
first impact probably died from ex
haustion in their efforts to get away.
At all events the story which is re
garded as quite as accurate as the av
erage of thoso emanating from Tarry
town goes on to relate that Mr. Fox
is preparing to place his invention on
the market, and feels confident that he
has at last solved the vejeed question
of eliminating the mosquito from our
summer lives. The cannonading would
get on the nerves of some people, of
course, but in desperate extremities
perhaps the effort would be worth
ANOTHER POLITICAL FUNER
AL FOR MR. BRYAN.
It is now some fifteen years since
publicists and press of a certahi per
suasion began holding political funerals
for William Jennings Bryan on fre
quent occasions. Meanwhile Mr. Bryan
has flourished as the green bay tree and
been able to command the nomination
of a great politicalparty for President
whenever he wanted it. General ex
pectation is that 1012 will be his fallow
season, but that his word will be potent
enough to prevent the nomination of
any man he will not approve.
The Undorwood-Hryan controversy
has afforded another opportunity for
those platitudinous panegyrists of the
Uriah Heap t-chool to unburden them
selves of another set of funeral ora
tions. Let us urge ardent mourners not
unduly to hasten in buying tickets to
the Bryan obsequies. Mr. Bryan is
represented as "repudiated by the
Democratic House," and "rejected by
his party's leadership." Bosh! Mr.
Bryan made a mistake, which is one of
his specialties. He made a huge one
in 1890 and got more votes then, and
twice afterward, than any candidate
for President had ever polled before
The strength of Mr. Bryan does not
depend on the attitude of the Demo
cratic representation in Congress. It
never did, and never will. It is with
the plain people, not the party mana
gers. It is not based on any assump
tion of Mr. Bryan's infallibility, but on
a firm conviction of his honesty.
Mr. Bryan made a mistake that was
made by plenty of other people. He
observed Mr. Underwood's political
geography, and he noted the delay
about bringing forward a steel
schedule. Ergo, he assumed a casual
relation that did not exist. Mr. Un
derwood's explanation, backed by the
members of the Ways and Means Com
mittee, is complete and satisfying. It
is merely regrettable that this expla
nation was not given to the public
But as to any serious, permanent im
pairment of Mr. Bryan's hold on public
confidence as a result of his fulmi
natjons on the steel schedule, it is non
sense. Mr. Bryan does not play the
sort of game for points that smaller
politicians play. He doesn't maneuver
to "get something on" his antagonist
and credit himself with a number of
points proportioned to the bigness of
the something or the skill of the
maneuver. He plays for the masses
of his party, and his hold on them is
what enables him to influence those
leaders who are always so ready to
claim the platform with funeral
elegiacs. Mr. Bryan has proved time
and again that he is stronger with any
other Democratic organization in the
nation than with the caucus of Demo
cratic Representatives in Congress. He
will prove it again.
"PUPPET PEERS"--THE NEW
"Puppet peers" is what the Unionists
threaten to call the men whom Prime
Minister Asquith may induce the King
to raise to the peerage in order to carry
the reform program through parliament.
A nation which lately paid so feeling a
tribute to the memory of V. S. Gil
bert can afford at this critical juncture
to take a look over the present aggre
gation of peers and then have a hearty
laugh. "Puppet peers" is as amusing
as the cry of "American dollars" hurled
at Asquith and Redmond by men who
boast of the support of such dollar
endowed noblemen as the Duke of
Marlborough and the Duke pi Man
chester. The nearer the British standpatters
come to the inevitable curtailment of
their power, and the equally inevitable
establishment of home rule for Ire
land, the shorter becomes their temper
and the shallower their wit.
Xor can their feelings be comforted
by the fact that they have already
been soundly beaten twice at the polls
on this very issue of progressive reform.

COME INTO UNION
To the Editor oT THE TIMES:
While reciprocity and the tariff have
occup!ed''the attention of a great man
people, there is' yet another question
that interests people hers from the
West. The statehood Issue tor New
Mexico and Arizona is to be voted on
in the Senate next Monday. It appears
that the principal objection to Immedi
ate statehood comes from Democrats.
I think this an Inopportune time for
Democrats to balk on the question. No
matter what Is done next Monday, New
Mexico will come In as a State !n June,
1912. It seems assured that New Mexico
will send two Republican Senators to
Washington, and will also participate
In the Presidential election. If the Nel
son resolution Is defeated next Monday,
It means that Arizona will be kept out
for a long time perhaps ror two or
three years. Arizona, being naturally
Democratic, would send two Democratic
Senators. If immediate statehood "t, de
nied her, she will be without represen
tation In the Senate, while New Mexico
will have two Republicans at the De
cember session, 1912. It would look ilke
good politics for the Democrats to make
a small concession to the President
that of resubmitting the recall feature
of the Arizona constitution and let Ari
zona come Into the Union. It would
seem, too, that the insurgents would
welcome two Democratic Senators from
Arizona to offset the two standpatters
who are most likely to come from New
Mexico. Business and social con
ditions call for statehood In ths two
Territories. If the President Is willing
to let the people out there decide their
political Issues at a ruture election, It
would appear that Congress ought to
be latuifled, .WESTERN HAN.
