Moreover, it is of usury we now speak; and to the long list of loans must be added the longer list of un satisfied judgments and delinquent tax levies the world 6ver, all of which are tearing usury. And since it is with the quantity of usury, and not of mounts loaned, that we are here con cerned, if we add to the mountain al ready enumerated, the vast difference of rate of usury on the loans based upon the needs of the poor, as com pared with those of the borrowings for business . or - speculative purposes, it H least doubles that mountain. - Nor is this all. In the final result, it is the poor and helpless whose toil .nd sweat pays the usury prom ised by all those great mercantile, manufacturing - and transportation companies; for they fix the prices of their products and their charges for service so as to include the usury they have promised, and it must finally be paid by the dumb, defenseless consum ers of the products and users of the means of transportation. It is a tribute paid by the poor to the rich, and which is upheld and en forced by statutes enacted for that purpose. But a more important and unanswer able objection to permitting the tak ing of usury than any of these, is disclosed when we consider what it is the lender lends, and the position in v'hich secure "lending places the lender is his relations to society and human ity at large. The usurer who lends incurs no risks. He makes repayment certain. What he lends is "coin." The life of an American gold eagle is said to be twenty years. But though the gold eagle be worn and wasted, the lender receives back a new one fresh from the mint; for so it is nominated in the bond. What he lends in the "coin" or "tax receipt," and his con tract calls not for the return of the identical piece of metal, but of a "dol lar" coined under such conditions as give it power at the time of payment to cancel, by- its tender, any tax levy or judgment of an amount equal to that expressed by it. The borrower n ust stand the abrasion and wear of use and pay usury besides. Every element of risk or uncertain ty to the lender is or may be elimi natied. While all men engaged in any useful ocation must meet and grapple with the unknown and uncertain, the us urer alone, under the ages of unjust laws and subservient courts, deals with certainties. He sells nothing but the resistless flight of time, for which the borrower mint pay coin procure! by the toil of his body or brain. The usurer shifts the uncertainties of life upon the shoulders of others, and takes no chances in the battle. Whatever changes may be wrought by the movements of time, pass over without effect upon the claim Of the usurer. The combined efforts of all the hu man race are directed toward the bet terment of human conditions. This they accomplish by extending man's dominion over nature and her forces. Improved appliances and improved methods in all departments of pro ouction and distribution,te.nd to abund ance and a lessening of the service or power to serve required to obtain pos session, in exchange, of needful things endowed with power to perform ben eficial service for. man. This means that the effect of improved appliances and methods in all departments of in dustry is to reduee human "valuation" of the force of demand for those needful things. It means a decrease in the intensity of the force of demand for all those things. It means a reduction of the Quantity of human energy required to be expended to obtain possession of them. This decrease of intensity of the force of demand can only be expressed in the "money" symbol. . But the usurer's coin, " which he lends, has the statutory "valuation" of the degree of intensity of the force of demand fixed by law and stamped upon it in that money symbol, and the process of cheapening, which acts upon all other things, through cheap er and more perfect methods of pro duction and distribution, produces no effect upon that coin. The "valuation" of all commodities must be expressed in the '"money" symbol, and when so expressed it is "price," and discloses a constant re duction of that "valuation" in all commodities, except '"cola." But the usurer's commodity is un affected by this cheapening process, toward the attainment of which all useful human effort is directed. Every reduction in the quantity of human energy required to be expended in or der to obtain possession of needful things, should be a distinct gain for humanity. But the benefits which should thus accrue, to mankind at large, are all gathered in by the gojd owning usurer, the "valuation," of whose commodity is fixed and un changeable, and submits to no cheap ening. This would not be true, were it not for the fact that tax levies and judg ments can only be met by the tender or coin, and thus the force of demand lor coin is perpetually renewed at iU fixed "price." The more men struggle to make hu man life easy, by cheaper and more abundant products, the greater be comes the relative power of the gold owning usurer's coin as a means of procuring possession of human prod ucts. The more men succeed in reducing the quantity of toil requisite to ob tain possession of all needful things except "coin" the greater the quantity cf those things man must sacrifice to the usurer to get possession of his coin the only means of deliverance from tax levies and judgments. Thus the greater the strides man kind makes toward abundance and security in the production and distri bution of all commodities needful for human comfort, the further he recedes from the enjoyment of that comfort. The "valuation" of all commodities endowed with utility, excepting coin, is fixed by human appraisal and then expressed in the "money" symbol; which expression' is their "price." The "valuation" of coin alone is fixed by that statute the ' usurer procured to be enacted and is expressed in the same "money" symbol, which is the :'price" of the coin; and at that price alone can it be used to cancel tax levies and judgments, which are uni versal. Human efforts 'tending toward the decreased valuation of all commodities cannot affect the price of coin; so that every step which seems to lead to ward the betterment of human condi tions, leads only to the betterment of the condition of the gold-owning us urers, while it makes ever more mis erable the lot of the rest of mankind. When his dollar, coined as va gift to him, comes back to him after the lapse of years with another dollar, also coined as a gift, sticking to it as usury, each of these dollars is a tax paying and judgment-paying dollar of the new time, to the , bringing of vvhich, with its reduced cost of pro cuction and cheaper products, its greedy owner contributes nothing; and yet through its ownership he com mands as a master, at ever decreas ing cost, all that the race without him, and in spite of him has by toil and self-sacrifice brought into being. He' is a superfluity in the. world, yet revertheless he reaps almost the en tire reward of the laborious efforts of mankind in dragging the race toward a better future. Every cheapening ' of the . cost and every lessening of "prices", of . things endowed with power to perform ben eficial service, thus accrues, to his ex-r elusive profit, though he had no part in bringing it about. He constitutes no part of the human family, and can have no sympathy with its labors or ts sufferings. Lending at usury is. thus made" a tempting occupation, and . everyone who engages in it becomes separated from his fellow, men and deprived of till sympathy with humanity, and its toil and sufferings.
