certain men as money kings or railroad
king.-,, theexpression sound like a figure of
apcech. This ia a republic. We are all
equal. Such a thing as a king in this coun
try is an absurdity. Yet the name Is all
thai is wanting. There are men in thii
count ry who have every attribute of a king
except the name. Like kings they derive
their revenues from taxes on the people.
Like kings they control legislation. Like
kings thf y aro masters of tbe will and of the
work or tens of thousands of their fellow
men. The chief dlatinctien ia that our
kings are m ucb richer aud more powerful
than some nf the kings they have In Kurope.
There ia King Vanderbllt .II. Nobody
knows exactly how rich he ia, because,
unlike other king he doea not allow his
subjects to scrutinize bis civil list. Hut he
is a very rich and powerful kmg. HI for
tune is estimated at I'JOO.OOO.ooo. In the
years when he only builds palacea and buya
paintings and does not buy nickel-plate
