Railway domination has reached a point where forbearing communities are protesting. The rank and file have not forgotten theirs is the privilege of thought and demand. Whether the Railways shall own the people or-the people own the Railways has become a serious question.
Railways are a necessity to the advancement of civilization but it is not a question of doubt among thinkers to-day that they will also prove its destruction if their debauched management be not arrested.
Abuses have sunk so deeply as at last to enforce the cry of discontent, and we discern in this cry the incipiency of a new era. To aid in spreading the light and hastening the new regime, this book is written.
The work necessarily involved a tedious investigation of dry reports and musty documents both foreign and domestic. It was little more than drudgery, anything hut an imaginative or poetic task, hence this part will prove tasteless food, no doubt, to those uninterested in the question.
It was not an easy task to obtain the desired material to build upon. Four and five months waiting upon Europe finally brought the required documents. The official reports of Germany, Austro-Hungary, India, Victoria, England, Wales, Scotland and France were obtained from their respective countries.
