PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Fathers and Interpreters of Constitution (Conlinued From Faee !, believed it was the best of nil possible constitutions. They felt it was (lie best '(hey could devise under the circumstances, Net Charier of Liberty Another notion is thnt it was' Eet up as our great charter of) liberty. Tim*, it, is confuted with ' the Declaration of Independence. To understand Ihis point Ihe reader should recall the history of the Constitution. From 1781 to 1787—arter tlie, Revolution—the people lived mi-! der the Articles of Confederation. Tills wns merely a loose league cf independent stales. Mosl of the governing was done by Ihe states. Bui after Ihe war many issues arose. There were economic ques- tions—debl, land. taxes, polllfcii] ilghls, depression. In many stales the farmers were in dish-ess. They were, as fann- ers always seem to be. borne down •by mortgages and debts. They; \vnie demandins repudiation. They! weie clamoring for rial money— printing press inos:>'—Inflali'w. | Jn |)laces men were demanding dhhion of lands. The arguments Brew violent, bitter. There were threats of uprisings.' Property was not safe. In Massachusetts, Daniel Shn.vs. a ie\oliilloii:iry army captain, or- caiilzecl the farmcrj. r iney (mucked several courts, 11, was Hi:.- \Jio uprisings of the farmers in Iowa and Pennsylvania in 1MD. But it went further. For In June, 1781, with COO men Shays iiilempled 10 tel/e the arsenal at Springfield,. Mass. He was defeated, 14 of 1 the lenders were sentenced Icii death but siilisccmchtly pardoned.: Hut Shays' rebellion sent n shlv- (M- through the men of property and business throughout Ihf .SUUI'.H. C'Clcnlcs Were in Debt There was another grave question. The revolution, like all win--;, had cost money, 'the young central government, had uoi-roivvd 510.070.OlyJ abroad nnd owed SI - CJO.OOO in defaulted Interest, It owed S27.00S.OCD ill this country and $13.003,009 In defaulted interest. It OK-cd SI.4CO.OOO lo the United stales Bank. The slates had also borrowed money lo flsht the war. They owed S2i.503.COO and a lot of interest. Some ol this consisted In warrants given the soldiers for ll'.cir pay. But most of the soldiers had sold their warrants. 'rhe wealthy pcoPl? of the col-, onies owned these i-onds and war-1 ranis. They were down in price i nnd threatened, \o'go lo\ver. Pow-1 erful groups in many slates clc-1 mandcd (hat these bonds be re-1 pudiated. In the case of soldiers' j wauants, they claimed the sol- dier.s harl sold them for Just a few pennies on the dollar ami rich ."peculators were trying to force Ulc impoverished, people lo pay 100 cents. Speculators bought up federal and state bonds at low prices Obviously tlie well-to-do imeslors wanted lo save these bonds. Business interests generally wanted a strong central government, Tlie rich landowners who wanted protection against the proletariat, the rich bond and warrant owners who wanted lo revive) their bonds ami prevent repudiation, the. leading groups who were terrified by stales put- ling out fiat paper money, tlie speculators in western lands, whhli was Ihe great gamble of (lie • day, all wauled a stronger centra) government to restrain the proletarian movements in (he .Viales. Washington Was Present The movement for the substitution of a new Constitution for the weak Arllcles of Confederation was engineered largely by Ihc lenders of the business and property and creditor groups in Ihe slates. Of course there were, many patriotic leaders besides and many great leaders, like Washington himself, who saw the need of a stronger and more stable government for the preservation of the independence tlie states had won. But when the Constitutional Convention met, if you looked down up-m the men gathered there, you wolf.d see ' what would correspond to LI great convention new made up quite largely of the Brcat corporation lawyers, the great Inisiness men and the great bankers of the prcs-nt day. There were D.mM Carroll, (lie great land liclder, Gsorge Flymer. the banker. Jonathan Dayton, the speculator. Eldridge Gerry, (he great merchant and investor in rccurilies; James Wilson, leadlna lank lawyer:' Alexander "Hamilton, leader of business interests and many other leading lawyer government, a wise government, I under which ihc nation could _ | prosper and be at peace, but a " [government dedicated to (jiving a .special protection and a special 'jjlnce to the great 5>ropertled clusses of the nation. I One of the questions now be| fore the people Is tlie extent to which they wish to retain this principle or lo nllcr it Jn favor of putting a greater emphasis on human rights.
