Excerpt from Our Little Monarchy: Who Runs It, and What It Costs

Many persons may regard this as a very singular and inappro priate question, living, as we do, in what is called a great free Republic, and under the very shadow of its Capitol. It may, indeed, seem strange to many persons that I should even ask the question. And yet it is an undeniable fact that we have got a monarchical government in form and features, and these features of the very worst kind, in Washington. It was our boast during the war that we had the best government the world ever saw. I propose to prove that we have here in Washington the worst government the world ever saw. I say it is the worst govern: ment the world ever saw, because it is a selfish, personal, and irresponsible government, a government that sets justice and right at defiance, and the highest object of which, as experience -has already shown, is to steal from the rich and Oppress the poor. I mean these things in their broadest sense. Stealing from the rich is not an uncommon crime in this country. It is only criminal when you steal not exactly in accordance with law. As to the punishment, that depends very much on the amount you steal. Steal a million or so and you are as fine a fellow as ever the law elevated into a hero, or touched with dainty gloves. Your petty thief, who steals only a coat or a pair of shoes to cover his naked feet, will, of a surety feel the rigors of the law, and be sent to the penitentiary.
