gested Eeincj Done "The Little Cor?
poral" Did for His Countrymen and
the Prosperity of That Nation Rests
on His Acts.
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.

ance of the idea of beeping a great
family fortune intact Commodore Van
derbilt, while making liberal provi?
sion for Iiis other children, left by far
the larger portion of his property to
his sou William II. 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?
