There Is a passage In Waller Bnfe hot's introduction to the second edi? tion of Iiis "Hnghsh Constitution" which lias lioiiie hearing upon Presi? dent Ubosevidt's recent suggestion of the desirability of limiting great for? tune'. Die Minneapolis Tribune. Speaking of the possibility tlint the British house ol lords might some day be aboil: lied, Mr. Ilalehol said that If the house ev< r goes, "'il will go in a Storni, and the storm will not leave all else as it Is. It will not destroy the bouse of peers and leave the rich-go .inu peers wit Ii tin- wealth and lilies to sit in the house of commons. "It would probably sweep all titles before It?at least all legal titles, and somehow or utlier it would break up the curious system by which the es? tates of grcal families all go lo the eldest sou. Much short of the compul? sory equal division of the C ub" Napo? leon, stringent clauses might he pro? vided to ubsiriicl and prevent these great aggregations of property." So it will he seen that the Presi? dent's Idea is by no means new. The operation ol the law in I'm nee has caused a division ol th > land Into minute holdings. Our own revolu tlonary rounders doubly insured against the creation of an hereditary at ist rocracy by prohibiting it in (lie constitution ami by forbidding the enactment of laws ol entail ami pi into genii lire.

Other millionaire;', have aeted oil the same principle, so that many great fortunes have been kepi together in a number of families for several generations. The power of the state to put some restraint upon the perpetuation of vast fortunes has been recognised lu all governments. Death and succes? sion taxes are collected In all Euro? pean countries. There is apparently ad limit to the power of governments to levy sueh taxes. Hui to carry tlieiu to the point of confiscation of estates would naturally rouse bitter protest from the property class. Compulsory ecpial division among the children or heirs of like degree, ac? cording lo the Codi? Napoleon, would in the long run effectually check the perpetuation of unwieldy fortunes.' Prance has prospered under the sys? tem id' division. It is doubtful if any other country of equal area and popu? lation could have successfully borne tue financial burden that Praiiec has been called on to bear, in the Franco Russian war. the Gorman indemnity, th.'- Panama canal losses ami the huge loans to Russia ami other countries. The division of lauds mid fortunes seems lo he an incentive to universal thrift. It President Roosevelt ever comes lo formulate a concrete plan for mini? mizing the evils of overgrown private fortunes be may profitably study the principles of the Code Napoleon up? on this bead.
