The Business of New York
You are Interested in New York.
Every American is interested in a city that in many
ways dwarfs every other municipality on tlie globe. You
would go to Boston if business or pleasure called you
there; to Chicago if you were forced to, and even to Phila-
hut everybody has gone or will go to New York
some day because it is THE American city— in a class by
Its growth is something to marvel at. A western boom
town seems like a country cemetery in comparison.
There are 60 theatres—more than in any other city in
the world—and one-third of them were erected in the last
A few years ago, after an expenditure of millions, the
New York water question was supposedly settled for half
a century. Now more millions must be Spent, for the
population has overtaken the supply.
The new school buildings completed last year will
house a school population equal to the entire public school
attendance in the state of Washington, yet thousands of
school children are going to school half time in order that
double use may be made of school buildings.
Every year there is added to the fire department men
and equipment equal to the entire' department of a city
like Kansas City. Still there is a cry of "inadequate fire
There are over 8000 men on the New York police force.
They, with their families, would populate a respectable
city. New Yorkers say thugs run riot because of the
smallness of the force.
Homes are no longer erected in New York proper.
That is because the entire territory is being given over to
flats, hotels, theatres, skyscrapers and business houses.
It is a city of churches, of saloons, of politicians, of
graft, of pleasure and of sorrow.
Its pleasures, its philanthropies, its business and its
sins are all on a gigantic scale.
It is today a pulsing, living advertisement for a mighty
nation, and Americans are proud of it.
Some Popular Education
"When thieves fall out honest men get their dues."
Doesn't that make you think of the various forms of
*'Frenzied Finance" that are being fed to the public in
unlimited quantities these days?
Mr. Lawson exposes Rogers and others, and Mr. Dono
hue exposes Lawson, and it is entirely in order for some
body who can sling a vitriolic pen to expose Mr. Donohue.
But out of it all comes a mass of trickery that can be
traced and verified, and light on swindles that have been
dignified with the name of business, until THE PUBLIC
For the warning is plain, It has been shown that
mighty fortunes are the simple result of selling something
that is worthless, or selling something that has value for
many times its value; that the central idea of Wall street
is to drain the country of its accumulations; to skilfully
plunder the public.
Finance, in its modern meaning, is remorseless. It
would make money by fair means or foul. Outside of
business it can sign a check for a thousand and shed tears
of sorrow for suffering. In its business capacity it has
no scruples. It views the suicide of the gambler in stocks
unmoved. It slays and picks the bones of the victim as
clean as ever vulture could.
It capitalizes a hole in the ground for millions, baits
the trap with glittering literary fabrications; declares
that fortunes can be had for the asking, and backs the
statement up with an array of names that stand, or seem
to stand, for solidity and integrity.
And the public, the dear public, with its few dollars
laid away for a rainy day, is expected to, and does, hand
over its money to that pirate crew.
Lawson says, "Sell Amalgamated for what it will
Donohue says, "Sell Trinity (Lawson's stock) for
what it will bring."
Let the people gain wisdom. There never was a bet
