Quote from Justice Stephen J. Field,

"Here I close my opinion.
I could not say less in view of questions of such gravity
that go down to the very foundations of the government.
If the provisions of the Constitution can be set aside by an Act of Congress,
where is the course of usurpation to end?
The present assault upon capital is but the beginning.
It will be but the stepping-stone to others, larger and more sweeping,
till our political contests will become a war of the poor against the rich;
a war growing in intensity and bitterness."
