τῇ πολιτείᾳ ‘the constitution’ — a ὑποκόρισμα: for the rule of the Thirty was unconstitutional (οὐ μετὰ νόμων), and was known, when a real πολιτεία had been restored, as the ἀναρχία.

χρηματίζεσθαι ‘to make money’: lit. ‘to do business to one's own profit’: οἰόμενοι χρηματιεῖσθαι μᾶλλον μαχεῖσθαι (Athenians in Sicily), Thuc. VII. 13: but act. χρηματίζειν, to transact (public) business, ib. I. 87.

πάντως ‘at any rate’ — i.e. whatever view their colleagues might be disposed to take of the project for plundering the resident aliens.
