I'rhcs fif aKricultural prortucts did not roach the low ebb of the panic of 1."N.")7. The later panic had u different ori.cin fr<»ni tho firsi. which camo us tho result of .ho Democratic Freo Trade or TaritT •or Revenue Policy, while the latter prew out of the over speeulation by all |.art ;o;; growing out of the ronditlon.-- re.sultaui from the fivit War period. The itanii- of iXm j;row nnt of tho disrrusi of ttie pooplo in the policy of this nation undor tho Wilson-Gorman Tariff law. t'apital was .so .=en- siiivo of ijie conditions of the iinM- that ji was nor inve.sietl. What was Iho rc ^tiit. nrst, labor lost its employment. Second, prices of all farm l>rodueTs foil to an abnormally low fig- •jre. Why? Labor could not buy. Tho panic of i;>07 like of 187.'", •vas the rosuit of over speculation in inseeiiro stoi-k.s an<l when the western hanks called for thoir deposits with the Kastorn dciK >siturs. ihoy found it loaned out. confrari to law. to un- iru.stworfhy parties on in.serure c'll- 'ataral. which caused instant distrust i!id a!arm. and the rosuit was the lock 'Hj,' i;p. as it were, of all the money of he country, except tite I'niied States \a :il!;; in Washington. If .'re labo.'\ u^a'in, was the fimt to feel the effect and to realize i; most ievereiy. Now note thi- di(r -?rei;ce between the diiriiiion of the panics of 1.^57 or is 't;; and that of I9u7. and the ••fTect on prices of lalior and farm and agricultural juoducts. The jirice of labor has not very materiall.v diminished, ccnnpared with the panics of 1S.'.7 iUid 189:5.
