Towerful empires haxe been powerful, not

Human industry has undergone u liko de

date, household occupations, but aro carried

accomplish Inau hour what formerly was the
task ol weeks. The rural blacksmith has

Industrial combination accomplish, Tho
managers of them onrn for thcnieolves, Indeed,
pilnoely salaries, but, since (hoy pay on tho

can nfford to conduct tho business nt n vastly

KetpectlhB tho supposed danger that these
mammotji corporations may stlflo competition,
and exact from tho community prices exceed
ing tlioso which would bo p.ild but for tholr
formation, It Is sufllelent to say that tho rapidly
Increasing wealth of the country and the pre
vailing low rntos of Interest for money, which
threaten to (nil lowor still, nro a mifllcldnt
guarantee against It. Thero aro among us too
many rtblo men seeking employment, nnd too
mnny owners of capital roody to lend It to thorn,
for a permanent monopoly to bo established In
nny branch of Industry. Orent as Is tho powor
wielded by corporatlonswlthcrchtcapltals.lt
Is not greater than tho lowor that can bo
brought against thorn whenever thoy overstep
tho limits of moderation. Competition can bo
suppressed only by making It hopelessly un
profltnbto, nnd tho knowledge of this fact Is u
sure protection of tho community against any
111 effects of Industrial imperialism.
