This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...

"Are we ready to see the price of all our staple products raised and depressed at the will and caprice of these corporations, with their paper depreciated from twenty to fifty per cent., discount, to suit the convenience of stockholders and debtors, and the avarice of brokers and speculators?

Your firmness and decision in restoring them within their chartered limits may confer some of the blessings contemplated by their framers; and by a sacred preservation of this rule, public confidence may again be restored, the price of property become more steady, and the laboring classes receive a just compensation as the reward of their industry. Even your public treasury has not escaped the rapacity of the times; as your money has depreciated, the salaries of some of the officers of the banks...
