LEGISLATE OUT EVIL. c
It has been said that nothing cl
can be done to stop the encroach
ments of the corporations by leg
islation, but in our humble opin
ion their growth can be dwarfed
bf legislation if our lawmakers t
in Congress and the legislature s
would enact laws which will t
put these institutions on a foot- it
ing with individuals, by making a
every stock-holder in a corpora- t
tion liable for the whole, as is t
the case with an ordinary busi- g
ness corpartnership. If this were
done the manipulators of trusts i
would not have such enticing in
ducements to offer when they a
wish to affect a big scheme, men
with money would b e chary
about putting their means into a 3
scheme if they had to be respon- a
sible for the whole concern; for
instance, if the stock-holders in O,
a corporation were held respon- c
sible for the whole, before a man r
of property put his signature to a
the scheme, he would look up m
the financial responsibility of his f
contemporaries, and if he found c
them ladened down with judge- y
ments, of that their property is f
hidden under a petticoat, they 9
would decline to invest, as they x
would not care to risk their all tl
in such 'company. Under our u
s of of laws a man may W
ave large property interests, rr
and yet, so far as the records P
show he is only a poll tax payer,
and, frequently not that; it is to
avoid the judgments for debt that
property is screened in the
name of another, this however,
does not prevent the man from
doing a very extensive business;
but it does prevent anybody from ix
collecting an honest debt from a;
him, and for this reason, if the cI
law of corporations were like the !R
laws of copartnership, honest
men with means would uot be
found in schemes which have for A
their purpose the oppression of
tne people to make money, busi
ness would be done on a live and
let live policy,competition wouldT
regulate trade,and labor,and the o
products thereof would receive al
See the injustice of our sys-h
tem of laws, their inequality and e
oppression; instead of being equal
for allthey,discriminate unblush- hi
*ingly, and defiantly, against theC
masses in favor of the classes. b
They seek to enrich the rich. at ;a
-the expense of the poor. This it
may sound to some as demagog- ii
ism, and we do not like such si
views, but we are forced to them y
*by the truth of existing condi- sl
tions. A law which permits a f
.man to revel in wealth and luxu- e
ry, and not be liable for a copper a~
of the debts he contracted, is an b
asylum for the .thief. Law, that 0
grants to a combination of men
privileges which it forbids in an i~
individual is a monte-bank-it is t~
'an institution legalized to cheat
and deceive by vain pretences, e
and as Whitlock aptly puts it h
* Such is the weakness and easy t~
'credulity of men, that a monte- t:
-bank . . . is preferred to an
able physician." The people be- t2
come deceived by these jugglers
of wealth, and they are made to
believe the combinations are e
brmnging to them blessings, and o
that all of their troubles must be
attributed to those who are at
tempting to do business by hon
est methods. Honest methods
are ancient, and up-to-date meth- I
ods have taken their place. In 3
the long ago, it used to take 16 V
ounces to make a pound, up-to- ~
-date methods with some, has i
shortened the rule, but the short a
side of it will always be found a
when the purchase and sale is
being made by the up-to-date de- F
ciple. Law which permits the
combination of wealth to force
misery and want, is an oppres
sion which a liberty loving peo- 2
ple cannot be happy and content
ed with. We cry out against s
mob law-an enraged multitude g
rising up to avenge a wrong, anda
yet, we must meekly submit with
out a murmur, when moneyo- f
cracy ruthlessly snatch the bread 1
from our children's mouths, and
with their arrogant tyranny, e
backedup by the lawmakers of
our own choosing, cause our C
wives to be without proper rai
ment,notwithstanding the we fact c
.toil daily. A law,which permits a
man who has swindled his neigh- s
bor, perhaps borrowed his earn
ings and drove him into poverty, r
to have,and to boastfully display
munificense, and leaves that hun
ger-pinched neighbor helpless to
secure juistice is an engine of op
pression that is galling. 1
We have reached the conclu
sion that if by legislation the
laws we referred to were possi
ble by legislation, they can be
abrogated, and it is altogether
with the people after all, how ]
long they propose to submit to
an inequality before the law.
The day for individual action is
here, every man should feel
himself responsible for his se
lection of our lawmakers, if by
th e asso men we have been 1
)nding to Congress and the
gislaturc we have upon us laws
gat are unequal aud unbearable, M
t us put men in their places the
-ho will make laws which will tb
ake every man free and equal.
'his can be done if the people col
rill exercise an intelligent Judg- Ca
ent, and not permit themselves n'

nacted for the governing of the va
lasses, bear equally upon all, A
ut when one law is made for re
