Tho period of prosperity through
which our country is passing presents
problems that tall for thought nnd
solutions. Two thousand capitalists
own more than all tho rest of tho
tdxty-fivo millions of our population.
Two hundred and fifty thousand rich
men control 71) por cont, of flic na
tional wealth. Thc Amorican Repub
lic is therefore practically owned by
less than one quarter of a million of
persons, If present causes which pro
duce concentration of capital continue,
the Republic will soon bo owned by
less than filty thousand men. This
rapid concentration of wealth in a tow
hands gives to trusts and monopolies
the power to control tho government
and tax tho people indirectly for their
support. If it bo truo that tho rich
nro growing richor and tho poor poor

And then go off and band him around,

If there is a man
You think hasn't done you right,
Don't sneak around
And try to stab a harmless man lor spite.
