Tbo law of Oregon and so\eral \ ollior
states , provides that the immcj foifeitcd

lower into the school fund. This is a
wise provision , It eliminates the possi
bility of dchtou nppe iling to tlio usur\ , \
laxvs to esiiipu the ] iiyiiunt of principal
anil Interest , which has boon the strong
point in tlio aigumcnt of the opponents
of stiingent Icgiblution in NebiasKa. It
provides sox-oro punishment for tbo
usuior , but does not exempt the bor-
loxver from the pajnient of liis honuit
debts with legal interest.
There is no good gionnd foi'tbo foir ;
that any eonsuleiable amount of de-
nil-able capital will ho driven from the
tale by the proposed laws -ig.iinst
nsurj. A'ory llttloof the eastern cipital
Invosied in Nebraska eirns more than
10 pi r cent for its ownois. Most of It

lowers pnv moio tlnn 10 percent thoj
pay an exorbitant price for tlio sou-ices
of the middlemen , and the } will con-

such terms. The mrostmont in bonds ,
htato and national , is pimcipilly lioino
capital , ifavlng all itslntciosts bore
there is no danger that it xvill jixo\e \ on !
of the state because the law forbids the
collection of mate of interest that the
