fore a and leave the caufe of it Hill beneath but we muft go to the root of the diforder and in order to do it effectually in the prefent let us firft con fidsr whence the evil Now this we fhall find be from the exorbitantly large capitals in and conftquently the large ware now employed in the vending all articles of home When the vending any article is diltributed among a numerous body of fmall who have but fmall fums or credit to lay out in monopolization never can take place the prices of all commodities rnuft then ever rife or fall according to the real quantity to be difpofed or the real demand of the confumers for no fuch fmall trader can venture to purchafe more of any commo than he is certain he can find cuftomers to pur chafe it of him But when thofe engage in who are able to throw into it exorbitant capi they can venture to purchafe fo great a quan tity of any as fhall directly form an ar tificial or and thereby make the remainder rife in price which when they have ef they then retail their hoarded ftore in fuch fmall quantities at a as fhall never beat dcwn the price And this they da to fuch advan that we find they are both inclined and aba to afford to let fome part be fpoiled in their ware rather than fuffer the price to What then can be more than that it is by the aid of fuch exorbitant together with fuch ex tenfiVe warehouies and fhops wherein thty ftore up their goods it is I by which the fpirit of monopolization is and which therefore the root of the prefent univerfal When we once know the caufe ef the common fenfe foon points out the proper cure and this in the prefent muft be by fuppreflingj or at leaft the practice of employing fuch large capitals and New thefe may in fome cafes be fup preffed by layiag a heavy tax upon all fuch houfes as have fliops or and which fhall have more than ten or twelve windows in them and in thofe cafes where they are not but are able to continue their practice of hoarding notwith ftanding the yet they will be and a large fum will be raifed from the profits of their ini quity for the public The next eligible ob ject to the actual fuppreflion of fraud is to draw good out of and render private vices of public bene Nor indeed in any wife ftate ought the mode rate profits arifing from honefty and in to be taxed at until fuch time as that there remains no longer any poffibility to extract any thing more from the fruits of profligacy and If it cannot be but that the fpunge of illegal avarice will fuck up the vital fpirits of innocence and yet it is the bufinefs of the ftate to fqueeze the fpunge and convert the extract to the good of the But is this equitable object ever purfued or aimed at by the laws of our thofe laws which we are wont to celebrate fb which writers pretend and wit lefs readers believe to be the patterns of juftice and mercy No fo far is this from being the that in general it is quite the rcverfe for not only the irfdultrious and ingenious are themfelves negleftsd by but their good is counteracted by pub lic their perfons legally and their profits diminifhjed by public plans on the other fraudand uiury are permitted to triumph in the rewardsof Any notions indeed ef obtaining univerfal by any fyitern how ever muft be merely romantic and I have no fuch common place or in view But certainly thofe laws can never deferve com which do not endeavour to obtain even

the words of truth and fobernefs nor can it reafonably be that thofe fubjedts fhould continue to love a where the government ceafes to love Not that they have any fuch extravagant as that taxes fhould be raifed only upon the wealthy for that would not be a wild but as unjuft on the other fide fince every man who enjoys the protection of eught to pay a tax for its fupport in proportion to his income
