I considered criminal but when the
word crime is used in its broader
sense to describe nn act which
offends against morality or the pub
lic welfure it certainly includes
that species of grmbling upon the
market whioh endangers the com-
munity as well ns Injures the par-
ticipants. A record of Wall
Street's doings fot' tue ast weok is
an indictment against our boasted
civilization. That such transac
tions are allowed 1? as much a re
ilection upon the intelligence of
the country ns it is upon the con-
science of the people. It is little
less than amsJiing that a few men
should be permitted to corner the
market for their own selfish purpo-
ses beat down the prire of one
stock and boom the price of an-
other stock demoralizing business
and ieonardizinc the interests of
a' I classes of society. It is re
ported that the slump in stocks
amounted to seven hundred mil-
lions in value and that the New
York banks had to put up nearly
twenty millions of dollars to pre'
vent a panic. How will the his
