Publisher's Note

This is a stimulating, original and thoroughly practical book.

It deals with questions which come close home
to every American Wage Worker, Producer and Business Man.

When you have read the Book, you will appreciate
the force and fitness of its singular title.

The Book is a store-house of Facts, and
most emphatically a Book For The Time.

Great Practical Problems are now confronting
the People of the United States.

This Book will help you
to understand the drift of thought and events,
and to Act Wisely.

This Book will be a powerful factor in a mighty movement
now steadily gathering force, which will arrest,
with quiet but relentless grasp,
the Arrogant Domination of Monopolistic Capital.

L. B. Woolfolk [1889]
