THE RIGHTS OF CITIZENS. 99

question no longer represent a class privilege,
they are merely rights attached to the land
and pass to every purchaser. The land tax
once legally fixed cannot be augmented on
account of new clearings or new spaces
brought into cultivation.

(e) No preliminary permit from the
authorities is needed in order to exercise any trade
or profession. The main provisions of the
industrial law of March 31, 1879 (a law
which completed the emancipation of trade
from the old restrictive system), are as
follows :—

Every Finnish citizen, of either sex, has a
right to exercise the trade or profession of
his or her choice ; so also lias every society or
legally constituted-company.

Any one who intends to carry on business
in a shop or office, or who wishes in his
industrial enterprise to employ workmen other than
the members of his family, must make a
declaration to that effect, in towns before the
bench of magistrates, in the rural districts
before the bailiff.
