Should Wealth Have a Limi
Great individual wealth is an
anti-sin ial interest. It is the ascend
ancy of individuals over the inter
ests of the public. Individuals have,
it is true, a certain amount of liberty,
but it cannot Ik- denied that society
has the right to modify the liberty of
the individual where such liberty is
but the slavery of the public, the
right to live also implies the right to
use the things about us which go to
make life comfortable and enjoyable,
and which have not been already
appropriated by others. It is evi
dent, however, that the use ol any
thing by one must necessarily take
from the personal liberty of all
those who otherwise would be able
to use it, and it is perfectly plain
that just in proportion as one's wealth
increases, the wealth of others must
increase. This to a certain extent
is legitimate, and cannot be prevent
ed, but when the wealth of one iu
increases to such an extent as to de
prive others of food, shelter, and even
existence itself, it infringes upou the
equality of personal liberty larmore
than could any law that placed a
limit to individual wealth, when men
are statving, when paupers are in
creasing, when to the misfortune of
poverty is added the curse of indus
trial slavery, when the great concen
tration ot wealth effects the lilt- and
liberty oi all, is not a lawjust which
takes from a few a position of their
wealth and indirectly restores it to
the hands of the many? Does not
the right to property involve and
test the admission ol the right to live?
Cardinal Manning startled the
world some years ago when he de
clared : "The obligation to feed the
hungry springs from the natural
right of every man to life audio the
food necessary to the sustenance of
lite, so strict is this natural right
that it prevails over all positive laws
of property. Necessity iias no law
and a starving man has a right to
his neighbor's bread.''
Strong words these for Cardinal.
Sentimental philosophy, it may lc
called, but it is the philosophy of
justice. Enormous wealth has al
ways been irreconcilable with equal
ity. Its growth has caused the
downfall ol ma n v democracies. Will
it bring about the ruin oi the gn at
est democracy in history? Are we.
With and with which we regard the
institution ol property becoming a
nation ot millionaires and mendi
Property is only absolutely safe
when those who hold it arc far more
numerous than those who do not.
When the middle class disappears
from a nation and the propertv fells
into the hands of a few over-rich
men then property is unsafe. We
call such a condition an aristocracy
of money, and an aristocracy of
money is always the child of a de
generated or degenerating demoerae v.
Sane people, however, regard the
concentration of wealth as an indi
cation ol progress. In matters po
litical the obstacle is often taken tor
the cause. Monopolies, trusts and
other forms of concentrated wealth
are regarded by some as the bless
ings of a prosperous nation. But
examined in the light ot history, we
find that concentrated wealth has
always been a means oi obstructing
if not of destroying a nation. Our
nation is not an exception. We can
not say that the destructive power of
concentrated wealth not now felt.

condition about us. Whenever the
people ofa nation beetimesubservient
and dependent, and are oppressed
and abused because they are so,
whenever there is little general pros
perity but a great deal of prosperity
for a few, we naturally come to the
conclusion that the cause of the
misery and lack of general prosper
ity is the great concentration of
VOL. 37. NO. 15.
wealth in the bands of the few. It
IS this conclusion arrived at by what
we are termed the masses, that has
caused the many conflicts of recent
years, between labor and capital.
Such conflicts are natural. Man al
ways revolts when he suspects his
misery is the consequence of a social
order capable of reformation. Puree,
of late years, has often been called
upon to su lid lie the spirit of resent
ment which agitates the breasts of
the poorer classes. The militia ot
the various states and even govern
