Punishment of extortioners The Legislature have decreed to punish the keepers of gambling houses with the lash, and it is a pity they had not adopted a punishment as severe for the worst kind of gamblers — speculators and extortioners.--The "tiger" ruins a few people, who have themselves to blame as much as the tiger for the distress which they suffer. But the extortioner fastens his fangs upon innocent victims, and grows fat upon the life-blood of the whole community. The most efficient punishment which can be adopted for these criminals is to put them all in the army. Not one man convicted of such practices should be permitted to remain in civil life. It would then be Yankee fight Yankee, and if they were all slaughtered, the world would be better and happier.
