Mardi Giras. for limit
THE most beautiful holiday that we have in gan to d
Louisiana is a Holy Day, that of All Saints, on a new "
the first of November, when our people lay the mat
flowers upon the graves of their departed mem- tenmal
bers. Mardi Gras coming a:s it does early in the ons, sta
year, is identified with the spring, rather than vices la
with the harvest season and is made a period of limited
general good nature and enjoyment. While it union v
is recognized notably as a Catholic holiday and as a rul
one of Madame de Stael's most brilliant chapters ed in tl
is an account of Mardi Gras in Rome, it is found the cor
that the traveler must come to the western fact, it
world to participate in the most delightful dis- years t
plays and celebrations made upon this holiday. Louisic
Many of our northern and western friends, al or ir
coming down to New Orleans, are astonished to last tv
find the vast expenditure of time and money progre
made in these celebrations and the apparent ab- laws,
sence of commercialism in them. Right there word
lies the charm. Other cities in some of the ad- tions.
jacent states have endeavored to imitate New Ou
Orleans in its Mardi Gras festivities and they zation
have endeavored to commercialize it to such an in doil
extent as to impair the final effect and nowhere origin
have the celebrations succeeded ds in New Or- the or
leans, The Mardi Gras crganiza ons with their capita

prominent strangers and such of their own peo- ation
ple as they have room for to come to the final it we:
entertainments. the s
They were inaugurated in New Orl:ans long contr
before the civil war by the social leaders of one r
of the clubs and have continued without practi- resu
cal intermission up to the present time, being that
enlarged from time to time and in this way and oveith
that, as some new organiization might come in with
nd join with the rest. The whole spirit of the faty it
affair lies in the willingness of the good people with
of New Orleans to put up their rtioney and their with
time to promote the common good of the city with- are,
out asking a cent in return other than just such yeaj
things'as good citizenship would indicate should eit
be due from everyone. comit
Another conspicuous feature in New Orlcans tion
is the very madfest gcoQd nature with which all
bf the festivities are carried on. In Cuba, some r
forty years ago, it became necessary to disarm tion
all suspicious people, as several murders occur- t
red from the concealment thus afforded the pra
maskers. Mardi Gras being recognized and
inasking being recognized, we could hardly of
claim that the organizations had a right to appear ma
eti masque and disbar individuals, and yet, with
the individuals all the trouble lies, at least did sor
in Havana forty years ago. We presume that d
Mardi Gras has still some celebration over there, n
but it appears to flourish nowhere as well as in
New Orleans, where we still have enough of
that delightful French element to lend a charm Ch
and quality to our civilization which would have tri
been impossible without it. Mardi Gras we
hope will flourish for decades to come and that ab
both the elders and the youths will enjoy it then
as now. In fact, one of the notable features of
our Mardi Gras celebrations has been that re
recently acquired citizens from the North and
West quickly become the most enthusiastic sui -
porters of the organization, going into it with a
hearty good will and finding themselves recomn- vi
pensed by that sense of having done all they R
they dould to promote the common good without m
that disposition to inquire how many dollars and ri
cents they might get out of it. w
Big Corporations. i
WHEN Pierpont Morgan launched the United 1
States Steel Corporation with its 1100 millions
of dollars of capital he was far more destructive
to the good interests of the United States than
probably he had any conception of. When the
United States were organized in 1776 the years
#f war were followed by several years of careful
consideration of the tenure between the states
until it was finally settled by the Constitution
as it now stands, or as amended. Throughout 1
the states generally at that time there was a
general disposition not to increase the banks,
probably because their resources would be con
trolled by the few and that final liabilities would
be shared by all. Of other corporations in the
states there were but feiw then in existence and
individuals were carrying on old businesses one,
two and three generations under the same
name.
As in England property could be entailed,our
forefathers in organizing our government, while
admitting the rights of transmitting property in
families and inhibited its leaving by will beyond
the second generation and thus inhibited the en
tailment of property entirely. These inhibitions
had the advantage of building up a democratic
America, while interfering with and, for the
first century of our existence, preventing the
building up of great families based upon their
monetary acquisitions. In the early part of the
1"th century there was but one bank in New

being content with one and not wanting any shoes and

w. Louisiana for any purpose other than agricultur- some a:

an in doing away with those provisions put in our of whi
ere original organic law with great care to prevent
Or- the organization of corporations with immense A
hiir capitals. Under our state law the life of a cor
chat poration is limited to ninety-nine years. As ADI
all that period of time covers at least three gener- presidi
peo. ations of active eitizens, it would seem as though to h8t
inal it were conceived as the limit in order to cover book
the same control of property in its transmission ben
logr to posterity in about the same way that it is
controlled under our organic law. The practical periei
acti- result has been to defeat the very conditions some
ting that were insisted upon by the fathers of the stanc
and government and to permit by various devices coo
in within the law the retention of immense proper- Mr'

ople families, as we see has been done in New York POShe
their with the Astor estate, where the land hoidings tor h

such years old and, as has been done with the Van- i jud
hould derbilt family and with the Gould family by per- bet
mitting the sale of the stock of their various hu
cs corporations only under given charter coim- so

and of his great Steel Trust. tiv
