You can go ahead and make your own guesses as to why I post this now. It should be painfully obvious after the first sentence..
"It is an old maxim and a very sound one, that he that dances should always pay the fiddler. Now sir, in the present case, if any gentlemen, whose money is a burden to them, choose to lead off a dance, I am decidedly apposed to the people's money being used to pay the fiddler... all this to settle a question in which the people have no interest, and about which they care nothing. These capitalists generally act harmoniously, and in concert, to fleece the people, and now that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel."
