SAVINGS the money we lend to the banks by putting it in savings banks
or handing it over to the big insurance companies that are controlled by the
money trust.
Yes, even the money deposited in Uncle Sam's postal savings banks.
For Uncle Sam loans that money to the banks. The MONEY TRUST fixed
the postal savings banks so they would get the money before they permitted
the law creating postal savings banks to pass!
If President Wilson hadn't sat down on the game the Morgan firm in
New York head of the MONEY TRUST would have loaned at least ONE
HUNDRED MILLIONS of the people's savings to France to prolong the
And then other branches of the MONEY TRUST in this country would
have loaned more hundreds of millions to England, Germany and other
countries at war. And the more millions of the people's savings they loaned
to the waring governments the longer they could fight and the longer BIG
BUSINESS could sell to us and to them what we have produced at WAR
The Ipnger that war lasts the longer prices will keep on a war basis and
the-higher they will go; and the greater the bonded debts of the waring gov
ernments would become which means the heavier the burden of taxa
tion would be on the shoulders of those who produce the world's wealth.
Every man, woman and child on earth is interested in having that war
end at the earliest possible minute. I mean every man, woman and child
not interested in the profits of the men who control'the world's money -supply,
and hence the world's products.
I believe U. S. District Attorney Wilkerson and State's Attorney Hoyne,
and the members of the grand juries now investigating the high cost of liv
ing could render a great public seryice if they would get all this informa
tion and give it to the people.
Find out and tell the people -where the packers get the millions -they
need to corner the food market. Is it their money, or did the banks they
control loan it to them out of the savings of the people?
Are the newspapers playing the game for the benefit of their readers
the people or are they helping the MONEY TRUST, the HOARDERS OF
FOOD, the FORESTALLERS and BIG BUSINESS generally to rob the peo
ple and feather their own nests?
Turn oh the light. Let the people see the truth. Then maybe we can
find a way to help the people without depending upon manipulated laws
and kept courts. Maybe we can get new laws, real 'laws, laws that protect
the people.
At a meeting held in the offices of
W. C. Niblack, receiver for the La
Salle Street Trust and Savings Bank,
yesterday a proposition to close up
the receivership of the hank and to
re-open it with new officers and di
rectors was made. It was decided to
ask Att'y Gen. Lucey and State Audi
tor Brady to make a fifty per eent as
sessment on the capital stock of the
bank and then allow its opening.
Mr. Munday and his friends insist
that there is less than $500,000 of
"had" paper in the hands of the re
ceiver. The $500,000 assessment and
the $340,000 surplus on band will be
more than enough to pay off all the
suspected paper, they say, and still
leave the capital untouched.
"You wring my .heart," wailed the
youth whom the Vassar girl had just
'Td rather wring your heart than
wring your clothes," she said.
