Is it, in the main, that the land shall belong to the indigenes and not to foreign capitalists; or that, in the last analysis, neither the foreign capitalist, nor the indigenes, but Government shall own it? To state the problem in another way, is it that the people shall be free to till the soil in their own right and sell the produce thereof to merchants abroad, the Supreme Court protecting the rights of contractor and contractee in common; or that Government shall step in and control private rights on the assumption that parties are incapable of managing their own business?" ; Ex-Library; 203 pages.
