Every Block of Land
a Gold Mine
Get-Rich-Quick Bubbles That Have Burst.
Wonderful is the magic of the
wizard of finance. He can take a
scrap of paper, a piece of iron, a
lump of stone, or a speck of dust
even, exhibit it to all, then blow on
it, and it swells and swells, filling
the vision of everyone and all minds
with dreams of golden promise.
In the year 1835 the United States
of America found itself more pros
perous than in all the time since its
independence. Money was plenti
ful, the extent of the country's re
sources were only being realized,
whatever it wanted from Europe in
the way of manufacturers it could
get on long credit.
So""far, people had t!.ought little
about the great stretches of country
in the west. But now, with popula
tion increasing, settlement began to
move farther afield. Perhaps it was
the reports of the richness of the
country that lay ever ahead, or mere
ly the desire to speculate again, but
soon the whole najion was buying
up waste lands. In a short time
every household in New York, Bos
ton and Pennsylvania had its mav
round which the family woufd'gather
at night discussing the merits of this
tract or that. Everyone believed
that there could be no better invest
ment than land. What matter if it
were waste, settlement would soon
be out by it. Especially with the
new invention, the railroad, which
was just beginning to show how it
could promote settlement.
boon the belief had become that
the only real riches was land, after
all; most of man's food comes from
it. and all the minerals are found be
In a few months the nation be
came land mad. Every waste block
that could be found on a man was
bought up. The government's sur
veyors could not peg out more
blocks fast enough to keep pace with
the nation's land hunger. And no
sooner had a man bought a block
than he had dozens of people im
ploring him to name his price for it.
In a year s time lands that only the
surveyor had seen were bringing
more than areas in the older settled
districts. The belief had become
now that there were no other riches
but land, and everywhere there were
men with land to sell who went
around preaching this doctrine.
boon, with the new lands selling
at high prices, values in the oldrr
communities took a jump. Imme
diately speculation in city blocks
began. People bought and sold
within a few hours, making huge
profits, and invested the proceeds in
another speculation. Others with
little ?ash, but not wishing to let op
portunities slip, entered into con
tracts to purchase, intending to sell
before they were ca.vnn upon to
complete the bargain. Others with
a speculation in their mind called
upon their bankers for assistance.
The banks havin ' v of money
in their vaults were only too dis
posed to lend, taking as security the
deeds of the land purchased.
Mill, values of land, old ana new,
went soaring. borne sold then
blocks and repaid their bankers with
interest in a remarkably short time.
Soon, seeing unprecedented oppor
tunities, loan banks were springing
up all over the country.
So ereat a rush was there for land
that people began to look around
for other investments, borne put
their money in railroads, canals, cot
ton, even in negroes, while others
flung their money across the sea
into foreign loans. In this last all
that was looked for was a high rate
of interest as high as a good land
deal would return and in two years
no less than $111,693,519 left the
United States for foreign parts.
lhe whole country was now in a
speculative fever legislature, banks,
merchant, public, and all. Nor was
the great financial power of the land
the Bank of the United States
immune. Its president was Nicholas
Btdddle. a man with some fine at
tainmcnts, but who allowed himself
to be surrounded by a crowd of flat
terers. For many years, because of
ls political power and favors it had
shown his opponents, President
Jackson had shown hostility to it.
But Nicholas Biddle felt he could
afford to defy all the authorities at
Washington, and he directed the
affairs of the bank in his own way.
It had 25 branches throughout the
union, all of which were glad to ad
vance money on almost any specula
tion whatever. For the bank had
too much money and a use had to be
found for it somehow. Its capital
was the enormous sum (tor those
imes) of $35,000,000.
tor two years the nation was in
this delirium. During that time it
had spent over $41,000,000 in the
purchase of undeveloped territory
almost as much as the land sales
had amounted to in the 40 years be
fore. This does not taken into ac
count the money that had been paid
again and again on resales; and what
had gone in the speculation in old
ands and city blocks, can never be
Strangely enough, the first note of
alarm came from Europe. London,
Paris and Amsterdam were flooded
with the paper of the United States
The speculative excitement in
America had been transmitted across
the sea, and the brokers and bankers

of Europe were eager to get their
hands on American scrip. No one,
with the reports of the almost un
limited resources waiting to be de
veloped, could think that the paper
might decline in value. So it had
gone on, Europe calling for scrip and
Nicholas Biddle and others being
only too ready to oblige.
Then came a timi when ro one
knew how much American paper
was circulating in Europe. Suddenly
it became suspected that the securi
ty for the money owed was not suf
ficient. Here and tl ere 'demands
were made, and on June 1, 1837,
three large American banks sus
pended payment. Immediately there
was panic on both sides of the At
lantic. In America people tried to
sell their lands, old and new, their
canal and railway scrip, their cot
ton, negroes, everything they had
bought the last two years. But
everybody wanted to sell, and no
body to buy.
In Europe bankers and brokers
tried to get American securities ne
gotiated in vain. For a whole week
there was panic in London and the
Bank of England had to come to
the assistance of the country, y
In a few weeks every bank in
America had suspended payment in
gold. Soon, many of- them failed al
together. One that collapsed in
Pennsylvania with liabilities of
hundreds of thousands of dollars
was found to have $39 assets, repre
sented by an iron safe and a bull
dog. Of the others, every expedient
was made to save them, but in the
end nine-tenths of them became in
solvent and closed down altogether.
For a couple of years the Bank of
the United States struggled along,
but in 1841 it went into liquidation,
causing the American public a loss
of $95,000,000. In 1839 Nicholas
Biddle- had resigned. He, was in
dicted for conspiring to defraud his
shareholders, but the charge was not
sustained. He died five years later,
Many thousands of people now
found themselves owning acres that
were a burden to them. Much ot
the land would be useless for all
time, being either covered with water,
on mountain tops or hopeless desert.
Land in all parts of the country
could now be purchased for ny
price, but there were not the settlers
to develop one-quarter the area that
All over the country the distress
spread. The New Orleans banks
closed owing $27,000,000, one house
having liabilities of $15,000,000; in
Europe, too, the fall of the American
banks caused huge losses.
It took the American people years
to recover from losses and the dam
age to their credit abroad. Men
who had had visions of wealth and
power found themselves doomed to
work at menial tasks to the end of
their days. Yet here and there
stood out a few in splendor. They
had blown upon the speck of dust
and turned it into gold for them
selves. Such is the magic of the
wizard of finance.

Ex-Service Men of Britain
