Should Wealth Have a Limi tation ? C'omimink-atctl. 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 cants '.' 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. 4 11 tlw., tm ' - I . I mi mm in mixnnauy in louimci euu- 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 ment troops have been (Sailed upon iu order to y reserve property and also maintain the suprcinaev ol con centrated wealth. How long this can g before a change comes we do not know. It e a ii u o t be maintained long, unless some ilw is enacted that will stop theeiicroaehing power if wealth, lipids will go on ntil tlie inequal ity becomes so glaring, so depressive, thai the pent-up social waters, gath ering force will break throit jh the wall ol concentrated wealth and al low society once more to regain in natural level.
