An article from the last number of the Dearborn
Independent on the condition in East India is really very alarming.
influence of the man Gandhi is nothing short of marvelous.
Of course, I
believe with Lincoln, that no man is good enough to govern another man
without the other man's consent, and I have no sympathy with Great
Britain's tyranny in East India. I notice that the Prince of Wales is
visiting over there as he did in the United States. Just a silly, little
youth, who never did a day's work in his life, never produced a penny-just
a royal loafer, that is all. It is an insult to the intelligence of the
people of India for him to visit there. and I do not know of anything that
is more calculated to arouse opposition to the government of Great Britain
than the presence of this scion of royalty over there where people work
all the year for less than $10.00 and then pay $1.65 tax to Great Britain
for the privilege of being badly ruled.
