The Way oj All Riches Many interesting things may be learned by studying the of the Wendell family of New York, strange recluses who lived alone in the midst of New York's turmoil. Miss Ella, last of the family, is dead. From the comparatively moityst estate of the founder of the family, the Wendell fortunes grew into a huge bulk of $100,000,000 by the simple process of, spending practically nothing, selling nothing, and sitting tight while real .estate values pyramided as New York grew. Critics of the American system unite in crying "See how a'vast accumulation of wealth piles up, unearned! Soon a few people will have all the money in the country." But the Wendell estate, all of it, may go to charity. Il will no longer exist as a huge, piled up accumulation. So with most great estates. They descend in direct .line for two, or perhaps three, generations.- Then they are split among many heirs, and the vast unearned accumulation, is no more. Or there is no direct heir, and charities, indirect 'and distant legatees get it nil."^Incompetents inherit it, dissipate it or lose it, and back it goes into general circulation. All this is as it should be, and is an effective answer to an otherwise valid criticism of the American scheme of things. —Bruce Catton. The Other Side, of the Picture It seem; to us a poor kind of satisfaction that Mr. Catton finds in the solution of the problem of great unearned fortunes through dissipation ur disintegration. If such fortunes are im- 'desirable from the standpoint of the public welfare thuir growth should never have baen permitted. It is not enough to rely upon the chance that a lack of heirs or incompetence on the part of the heirs may result in their breaking up or reverting to the public as bequests to charities. The trouble in most of our thinking along this line, and it is in Mr. Cutton's, is it failure to distinguish between .unearned and unproductive fortunes, such as that of the Wendells, and fortunes achieved through the productive OUT OUR WAY "T~7 vH\£ employment of ability and capita!. A fortune, no matter how great, that is the result of the honest application of the buildpr's effort and skill, is no menace. It is the reward of service to the public, which shares in the benefits. A fortune such as the Wendells, on the other hand, i's a purely parasylic growth. Some old time Wemlcll KO; liossession of some New York city property, lie and his heirs snt tight, and the crowding millions of the city gave to the Wendell holdings the value that made the family wealthy. The Wendells contributed nothing'. The same increase in the value of the property would have taken place lnul they never lived. The people of the cily of New York made them rich without the necessity of lifting a linger. The remedy is proper taxation. Instead of hunting out those who reap the reward of energy and ability to penalize their brains, initiative and industry for tha support of government and public institutions, we should appropriate for public use values that arc created by .the public. The earned incomes, the productive investments of the people of New York could be free of taxation, if the people of that city could use the fortunes they have creat-. ed for a relatively small number of families who have made little or no contribution to the growth and prosperity of the cily but have reaped billions of dollars of profit by the simple process of holding on to pieces of land on the crowded lillle island of Manhattan.
