A. Whv is the Honville System
the greatest move before the civil
A. The world, since our first
historical knowledge, has been
nursing a sick and crippled finan
cial and commercial system. Ma
ny hnvc tried to cure it. Some
have been the means of applying
remedies of a beneficial nature, but
all have failed to make the cure.
Probably one of the most direct
reasons for this failure lies in the
fact that our benefactors in the past
did not sufficiently realize the im
mense amount of active forces need
ed, in order to effect this cure. It
is a well known fact, that relief can
be obtained through application of
that root of mathematics tlint the
average third grade scholar has
knowledge of, in his limited way,
and that is: that the more forcible
numbers and powers arc the direct
results of combinations, The larg
er the number the greater the force
it represents? The same can be ap
plied to our domestic and national
conditions. The larger a combina
tion of men the greater the power,
force, and energy they represent.
Hence, nations acting against na

The Honville is n simple, easy,
and direct cure for existing defi
ciencies that are so ever present and
oppressive to all. It will accom

the earth have sectetly yearned and
striven for, viz: The creation of u
"Golden Age," wherein all men
irrespective of Mate or birth, will
have, the mime financial and com
mercial footing, wilt reap equal
revenue from like investments,
will, in fact, have as its basis those
essentials which are the direct con
sistency of a Mtiaie deal, because it
protects, insures, and gives the in
vestor what his money earns, stops
wealth from centering in a few tro
pic's hands, stops stock gambling,
ells dentil to fake promoters and
fake labor leaders, and encourages
the small investor.
