Science of Railways General Fiscal Affairs By Marshall Kirkman 1897
 
The Science of Railways General Fiscal Affairs By Marshall Kirkman Hard Cover 1897 6th edition Volume 11 476 Pages Treating of the principles and practices that govern the fiscal affairs of railroads at their headquarters, including incidentally the government of the Treasurers office, paymaster and the relief department.
I beg to refer the reader to the table of contents and index for a summary of the contents of this volume. While it relates more particularly to the general fiscal affairs of railroads, it discusses incidentally many other questions (as do all my books) that enter into the operation of these great corporations; things concerning their internal politics, methods, principles of administration, and kindred subjects. There is nothing connected with the operation of railroads, it may be said, no matter how dry or seemingly unimportant, that is not governed more or less by collateral questions, local considerations, and lines of policy; an explanation of one is necessary to an understanding of the other-oftentimes the key thereto. In their entirety they will be found to afford an exhaustive exposition of governmental principles and methods.
As the volume naturally divides itself into four  books, I have thus classified it, namely:
Book 1-General fiscal affairs and statistics of railroads.
Book 2-Treatise on the principles, methods and interests involved in the payment of employes of railroads and other great corporations.
Book 3-Primary code of rules for the government of the treasurer's office.
Book 4-The relief department of railroads; measures taken to ameliorate the condition of those who work for railroads, including their families, in cases of accident, sickness, destitution, old age and death of employes.
These designations explain in a general way the purpose of the volume.
