The translator. Thomas S. Adams. Is a thoroughly trained economist. His work has been faithfully and ably done. Added value has been given the study by the degree to which Mr. Adams has enlarged the statistics. So far as possible all statistics have been brought down to date. Where the early figures had no particular significance, they were simply replaced by later ones. In other cases a new note has been added or an old one expanded. The addi tions of the translator are noted thus: [tr.] Professor Richard T. Ely brings to the attention of the editor the fact that his Labor Movement in America referred to by Professor Levasseur was written nearly fifteen years ago. That not merely have conditions changed since then. But that he has modified somewhat the opin ions expressed therein.
