Sixty Years in Public Affairs ” (McClure, Phillips & Co.). To few American public men has it been granted to participate actively in political movements for so long a period of time. Mr. Boutwell began his service in the Massachusetts Legislature in the forties, became governor of Massachusetts more than half a century ago, represented his State in Congress during and after the Civil War, was Secretary of the Treasury in President Grant's first administration, and served as Senator from Massachusetts in the seventies. During the last quarter of a century, while Mr. Boutwell has held no public office, he has written and spoken much on political topics, retaining a virility of thought and expression such as many a younger man might envy. The fact that his career has included long periods of activity in the legal profession has made his experiences the more varied, and contributes greatly to the interest of his memoirs. His acquaintance with men in many walks of life has been extensive, and his recollections are vivid. Not since the appearance of Blaine's “Twenty Years in Congress” has so important a collection of personal reminiscences in American politics come from the press.

“Herbert B. Adams : Tributes of Friends" is the title of a memorial volume published by the Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore in recognition of the distinguished service rendered by the late Professor Adams as head of the department of history. A unique and fitting contribution to the volume is the bibliography of the members of the department for the entire quarter-century of Dr. Adams' leadership. Many of the books and articles enumerated in this list were directly due to the suggestions of this inspiring teacher. Few, if any, university instructors in this country have influenced the literary activities of so large a number of students.

In the Appletons' series of “Life Histories,” Secretary Thwaites, of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, contributes an interesting sketch of “Father Marquette.” Mr. Thwaites, as editor of the last complete edition of the famous “Jesuit Relations,” has made a thorough and scholarly review of all the documentary materials pertaining to the historic Mississippi expedition of Marquette and Joliet. Mr. Thwaites, moreover, is intimately acquainted with the region traversed by Marquette, having himself made canoe voyages over the inland waterways made memorable by the Jesuit explorer, and from his knowledge of the country he is able to impart an unusual sense of reality to the entire narrative of Marquette's adventures. Marquette and Joliet, in the month of June, 1673, entered the Mississippi from the Wisconsin River, and descended as far south as the mouth of the Arkansas. They returned northward by way of the Illinois and Chicago rivers and the west shore of Lake Michigan, reaching the Jesuit mission at the rapids of De Pere, Wis., in September. Two years later, Marquette died on the site of the present city of Ludington, Mich., and the following

year some friendly Indians removed his bones to St. Ignace, where they were buried by his fellow Jesuits in a vault beneath the floor of their mission chapel.

The oration delivered by Mr. Samuel W. McCall at the centennial of Daniel Webster's graduation from Dartmouth College, which was celebrated in September last, has been published in book form (Houghton, Mifflin & Co.). This address has been generally accepted as a truthful and well-balanced estimate of Webster's character and career, and it well deserved the attractive garb in which it now appears.

A paper on Webster introduces a little volume of

Biographical and Other Articles,” by William C. Todd (Boston: Lee & Shepard). Caleb Cushing, Thomas Hart Benton, and “Lord Timothy Dexter," of Newburyport, are among the other famous characters treated by Mr. Todd. Bits of rare and curious information, much of which was never before published, are incorporated in the papers.

At last, in “The True Aaron Burr," by Charles Burr Todd (New York: A. S. Barnes & Co.), we have an enthusiastic defense of an American in whom the historians, early and late, have found little to praise. The recently-circulated statement that the archives of the British, Spanish, and French governments reveal evidence of Burr's treason is repudiated by Mr. Todd, who challenges the production of such evidence. He asserts, on the other hand, that the Spanish archives at New Orleans and Mexico show that Burr intended by his

'conspiracy” only the capture of Mexico and its ultimate annexation to the United States.

One of the most readable books of the season is a study of the Revolutionary patriot and martyr, Nathan Hale, by Mr. William Ordway Partridge, the sculptor, who has been occupied for five years in working out in marble his conception of the face and form of the young Yale graduate and school teacher whose unusual lot it was to dignify the office of a military spy and to become through this service, ennobled by its object, a national hero. (Funk & Wagnalls Company.)

A little book made up of tributes to the late Lewis G. Janes has been published at Boston (James H. West & Co.). Dr. Janes was distinguished in life for his contributions to philosophy, notably in the department of ethics. Most of the tributes included in this volume are from representative students and teachers who were associated more or less intimately with Dr. Janes in various educational activities.

“The True Napoleon,” by Charles Josselyn (New York: R. H. Russell), is a chronological record of events in the life of the First Napoleon, based upon many trustworthy authorities, and making no pretensions on its own account to originality. It is, in fact, what its title-page indicates—"a cyclopedia of events." A dozen very interesting and effective illustrations are included in the volume.

The matter of chief interest to American readers in the “Diary and Correspondence of Count Axel Fersen, Grand-Marshal of Sweden, Relating to the Court of France" (Boston : Hardy, Pratt & Co.), is contained in the count's letters to Field-Marshal Fersen, who was

his father, during the American Revolution. The count served as aide-de-camp to the Comte de Rocham. beau. These letters are all included in the second chapter of the volume. Young Fersen embarked at Brest with the expeditionary corps of the French army of assistance to the American revolutionists in the spring of 1780. After taking part in the expedition to Rhode Island, he was present at the siege and capitulation of Yorktown, being employed by the Comte de Rochambeau in preference to the other aides during the conferences with Washington and the other officers of the American army. In fact, it is said that it was he who conducted the negotiations, and that this preference was founded not less on his personal qualities than on his knowledge of the English language. As in the case of the volumes of memoirs already published in this series, the translation from the French is the work of Katherine Prescott Wormeley.

“Meditations of an Autograph Collector," by Adrian H. Joline (Harpers), contains much anecdotal material of an entertaining nature relating to such historical characters as Charles Lamb, W. M. Thackeray, Laurence Sterne, Charlotte Brontë, Robert Burns, Samuel Johnson, John Keats, Joseph Addison, Alexander Pope, David Garrick, Sir Walter Scott, and Charles Darwin.

The stereograph record of William McKinley as President of the United States (New York : Underwood & Underwood) is a work of genuine historical interest and value. It consists of a series of sixty stereoscopic photographs of the late President at his official duties in Washington and on the memorable railroad journeys made across the country in the last year of his life. With the exception of the latest ones, each of the stereographs was examined through the stereoscope by the President, and received his personal approval. The descriptive text accompanying the pictures greatly enhances the educational value of the series. The stereograph as a means of instruction has already commended itself to educators, and is being introduced in a number of public schools. It offers an effective method of impressing the importance of historical events on the mind of the child. The Government uses stereoscopic photographs for instruction in the Military Academy at West Point.

“Uncle Sam, Trustee," by John Kendrick Bangs (New York: Riggs Publishing Company), is something of a surprise. We confess that Mr. Bangs, thanks to his brilliant reputation already made in other and very different literary lines, is not the writer to whom we should have looked for a concise, matter-of-fact record of the American administration in Cuba. Such a record, however, Mr. Bangs has given us in a dignified volume in which the only hint of whimsicality is suggested in the title. The book opens with an excellent summary of Cuban history, beginning with the era of discovery and Spanish settlement and coming down through the centuries to the memorable year of 1898. Then follows a brief account of General Wood's work at Santiago, a general survey of conditions in Cuba at the close of the Spanish war, and a series of chapters covering the progress made in the several departments of administration during the past four years. Mr. Bangs closes with a glowing tribute to General Wood and his corps of assistants for the magnificent manner in which they have fulfilled their tasks.

“The Rise of Religious Liberty in America,” by Sanford H. Cobb (Macmillan), is not in any sense a history of the churches or of religion in America. The aim of the work is political rather than religious. In the language of the preface, “it attempts a systematic narrative,-so far as the author is aware, not hitherto published, -of that historical development through which the civil law in America came at last, after much struggle, to the decree of entire liberty of conscience and of worship.” The author introduces the work with the definition of the American principle of religious liberty. This he follows with a description of the Old World idea of Church and State which was in force in Europe at the time of American colonization. He then proceeds to an account of colonial beginnings and the various church establishments in the colonies,-the Church of England in Virginia and the Carolinas, Puritanism in New England, Dutch Calvinism in New York, Catholicism in Maryland, and so forth. There are numerous footnote references to leading historical authorities.

“The Story of the Mormons," by William Alexander Linn (Macmillan), may also be described as a secular, rather than a religious, narrative. The writer classifies the books on Mormonism already in existence as follows : “Histories written under the auspices of the Mormon Church, which are hopelessly biased as well as incomplete ; more trustworthy works which cover only certain periods; and books in the nature of 'exposures' by former members of the Church, which the Mormons attack as untruthful, and which rest in the mind of the general reader under a suspicion of personal bias." Mr. Linn has undertaken to present a consecutive history of the Mormons, from the date of their origin to the year 1901, and as regards the facts included in his account, he has relied largely on Mormon sources of information. Notwithstanding the almost universal acceptance of the belief that Joseph Smith, Jr., was the founder of the sect, Mr. Linn declares that the real originator of the whole scheme for a new church and of its doctrines and government was the now little-known Sidney Rigdon, for many years one of Smith's influential associates.

The second volume of “The Spanish Conquest in America,” by Sir Arthur Helps (John Lane), now appearing in a new edition edited by M. Oppenheim, covers the colonization schemes of Las Casas, the ex

A FEW RECENT VOLUMES OF HISTORY.

“The Boer Fight for Freedom,” by Michael Davitt (Funk & Wagnalls Company), has been heralded as “the first authentic history of the Boer war from the Boer side.” It will be remembered that Mr. Davitt resigned his seat in the British Parliament at the outbreak of the war, in October, 1899, as a protest against what he deemed to be the unjust aggressions of Great Britain. He soon proceeded to South Africa, and there was a personal witness to many of the dramatic incidents of the contest, becoming acquainted with such leaders among the Boers as President Steyn and Generals Botha, De Wet, and Delarey. In his account of the war, Mr. Davitt's style is journalistic, at times dramatic, and always entertaining, even though the partisanship which he is at no pains to conceal to a great extent vitiates the value of his work as history. The book amply fulfills the promises made in the advertisements. It gives the Boer side, and for that reason it will be read with avidity in this country, where the Boer cause from first to last had thousands of intense sympathizers.

SOCIOLOGY. Under the auspices of the Department of Social Sciences of Yale University there has been published a volume of “Statistical Studies in the New York Money Market," by John P. Norton (Macmillan). In this work the author has made an elaborate attempt to apply the mathematical methods of interpolation and corelation to the financial statistics of discount rates and banking items as published weekly by the financial journals. He has, however, tried as far as possible to subordinate the mathematical side of the work, and has made large use of graphic representation by means of charts.

A welcome addition to the publications of the New York State Library (Albany : University of the State of New York) is a bulletin giving a review of State legislation for 1901, edited by Dr. Robert H. Whitten, the sociology librarian. This review is made up of contrib utions by many specialists, each of whom gives a useful survey of the enactments of the year in the various States, with a special review of the subjects in which he is interested. Such treatment as this makes doubly valuable to legislators and students of comparative legislation a "Comparative Summary and Index” which has been issued by the New York State Library for possibly twelve years. As an introduction to the present bulletin, Dr. Whitten gives a brief review of modern work in comparative legislation.

The first course of “Yale Lectures on the Responsibilities of Citizenship,” delivered by Justice Brewer of the United States Supreme Court, has been published in a small volume entitled “ American Citizenship" (Scribners). In these lectures Justice Brewer presents what he terms a few plain, simple, commonplace truths. The line of treatment followed by the justice is indicated roughly by the titles chosen for the five lectures : “Obligations of Citizenship,” “The Maintenance of a Good Character a Primary Obligation of Every Citizen,” “Service a Responsibility of Citizenship,” “Obligation of Obedience,” and “The Duty of Striving to Better the Life of the Nation."

ploring expeditions of Hernando Cortez, and the siege of Mexico by the Spaniards and their Indian allies. Facsimiles of sixteenth-century maps accompany the text.

A History of Slavery in Virginia," by James Curtis Ballagh, constitutes an extra volume in the Johns Hopkins Studies in Historical and Political Science (Baltimore : Johns Hopkins Press). This is a study of the institutional character of American slavery. The author has investigated the legal and customary treaty ment of slaves in Virginia, from the beginnings of the colony down to the period of emancipation. He has given special attention to the social statistics of slavery and to penal legislation concerning slaves.

An interesting story of the Moravian Church, founded at what is now Salem, N. C., is related in “The History of Wachovia,” by Dr. John Henry Clewell (Doubleday, Page & Co.). This history is based chiefly on original manuscripts and records preserved by the Salem Historical Society.

“The Lower South in American History” is the title of a volume of papers by Mr. William Garrott Brown (Macmillan). These papers have to do chiefly with the period preceding the Civil War, covering : (1) “The Rise of the Cotton States,” (2) “ The Ascendency of the Lower South in the Union,” and (3) “The Final Struggle in the Union.” There are also papers on “ The Orator of Secession,"

," " The Resources of the Confederacy,” “ The Kuklux Movement,” “A New Hero of an Old Type” (Hobson), and “Shifting the White Man's Burden." These attempts to depict conditions of life in the old South, while confessedly incomplete, serve to suggest the outlines of what may eventually grow under Mr. Brown's hand into an elaborate and well-proportioned history of that important section of the Union.

Varied subjects are treated in a volume of papers by Mr. Charles Francis Adams (Houghton, Mifflin & Co.). Besides the study of “Lee at Appomattox,” which gives the title to the book, there are two papers dealing with phases of the South African war, an essay on the need of a higher tone in our political discussions, and “A Plea for Military History,” which is mainly a criticism on the defective treatment of military operations by historians. All of these essays embody the results of many years of experience in public affairs, and are written in a style that is always enjoyable.

In the “Cambridge Historical Series” (Macmillan), Mr. P. Hume Brown has written a two-volume “History of Scotland.” The writer's preface to this work informs us that the latest critical opinion is inclined to reject or modity the conclusions accepted even by recent authorities on Scottish history. Especially is this true of the Roman occupation and the centuries that immediately follow. From materials that have come to hand in recent years, very much of the history of the last five hundred years has had to be virtually rewritten, so that we have in the present work an essentially new and distinctive history of Scotland.

Two new volumes in the series of “Mediæval Towns” (Macmillan), are devoted, respectively, to Cairo and Chartres. The former of these towns may be regarded as in the fullest sense a medieval city, since it came into existence and had its most vigorous life during the Middle Ages, while it still retains much of its mediæval character and aspect. Chartres is also full of monuments of the Middle Ages, and with Mr. Headlam's book in hand the traveler who has only a few hours to spend in the old town may find much to interest him.

LABOR AND CAPITAL.

Several works dealing with modern industrial problems have recently appeared, and of these the one that is likely to attract the most general attention is the volume entitled “Labor and Capital : A Discussion of the Relations of Employer and Employed,” edited by John P. Peters, D.D., of St. Michael's Protestant Episcopal Church, New York (Putnams). This book is made up on the “symposium" plan, and includes contributions from many well-known writers on various phases of the modern labor movement. The general subject of “Labor Unions” is treated by Mr. James B. Reynolds, President Gompers of the American Federation of Labor, President Keefe of the International Longshoremen's Association, and Secretary White of the United Garment Workers of America. There is also a discussion of “Trusts and Labor Unions from a Legal Aspect,” by Messrs. George C. Holt, John Brooks Leavitt, and John De Witt Warner. The arguments for conciliation and arbitration of labor disputes are presented by Bishop Potter and Cardinal Gibbons, supplemented by the views of such specialists as Chairman Reed of the Massachusetts Board of Conciliation, Commissioner Carroll D. Wright of the United States Department of Labor, Labor Commissioner McMackin of New York State, and Mr. Charles Buxton Going of the Engineer.

trial evolution as manifested in the United States are here set forth by Messrs. Charles R. Flint, James J. Hill, S. C. T. Dodd, Francis B. Thurber, all well-known and active representatives of the modern movement along the lines of capitalistic combination. The subjects discussed are“Combination and Critics,” “History and Influence of Capital," " The Gospel of Industrial Steadiness,"

" " Combinations and the Public, "An Alliance of Work, Brains, and Money,” “Influence of Trusts upon Prices,” and “What Combination has Done.” There is also a collection of representative opinions on trusts from eminent public men, together with a carefully selected list of books relating to trusts.

ESSAYS ON SOCIAL THEMES.

ing Magazine. On the topic of "Compulsory Arbitration, favorable views are presented by Messrs. Walter Fieldhouse, Henry Demarest Lloyd, Conrad Reno, and Hugh H. Lusk, and unfavorable views by Chief Clark of the Order of Railway Conductors, President Mitchell of the United Mine Workers, and Secretàry John M. Stahl of the Farmers' National Congress. Representative employers of labor give their opinions on “Voluntary Arbitration and Conciliation,” while the sentiments of the employees on the same subject are voiced by President Martin Fox of the Iron Moulders' Association of America, and Frank P. Sargent, Grand Master of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. A section of the book is devoted to “Model Industries," covering schemes of profit-sharing and cooperation, and there is a full discussion of socialism and the single tax as remedies for modern industrial ills. Two questions relating to the unemployed—“Is Permanent Work with Comfortable Living Wage Possible for All in This Country ?” and “How May Work and Workers Be Brought Together ?" are briefly answered by Mr. Everett P. Wheeler, of the “East Side Settlement House in New York,” and Mr. Jacob A. Riis, the author of " How the Other Half Lives."

In the collocation and arrangement of the utterances of so many experts on labor problems, Dr. Peters has rendered a valuable service to all earnest students of the subject. Not only are theorists represented in these discussions, but many practical men whose interests are involved in a speedy and equitable decision of the questions under discussion. In fact, the staff of contributors is made up on essentially the same lines as the well-known Arbitration Committee of the National Civic Federation, whose work was so prominently inaugurated in December last. The employers, the labor organizations, and the general public have all been invited to share in this expression of opinion.

To obtain a clear view of modern British trade-unionism in its various phases, the American student can do no better than to consult what has come to be regarded as the standard authority on the subject, namely, “Industrial Democracy,” by Sidney and Beatrice Webb, of which a new edition has just been issued, the two volumes of the original work being bound in one (Longmans). Some idea of the scholarly thoroughness of this work may be gained from the fact that the investigation on which it was based occupied six years, in the course of which the authors examined, inside and out, the constitution of practically every trade-union organization, together with the methods and regulations which it uses to attain its ends. In an earlier work the authors traced the history of trade-unionism, and in the present volumes they attempt to give a scientific analysis of trade-unionism as it is to-day in the United Kingdom. An introduction to the new edition gives a full exposition of the various statutory changes made between 1897 and 1902, and the Australian legislation of that period is noted in detail.

Passing from the consideration of the rights and wrongs of organized labor, we find an exceptionally clear presentation of the claims of organized capital in “The Trust :, Its Book,” edited by James H. Bridge (Doubleday, Page & Co.). The latest phases of indus

Three recent volumes by clever British essayists deal with various social topics in an interesting manner. “Philosophy and Life,” by Prof. J. H. Muirhead (Macmillan), while the psychological point of view is much in evidence, is an attempt to apply general principles of conduct to actual present-day problems, as in the essays on “What Imperialism Means," "The Science of PoorLaw Relief,” and “Modern Methods of Temperance Reform.” Of the papers not so strictly sociological in character, American readers will be attracted by this writer's presentation of “Robert Louis Stevenson's Philosophy of Life,” “Abstract and Practical Ethics," "A Liberal Education,” and “Psychology and Education."

Better known to Americans generally is Dr. W. Robertson Nicoll, the English critic and editor, who, under his well-known pseudonym “ Claudius Clear,” has col. lected “Letters on Life" (Dodd, Mead & Co.), a series of entertaining essays many of which have already appeared in publications accessible to American readers.

The third book in the group is said to be the work of "one of England's best-known statesmen." It is entitled “An Onlooker's Note-Book” (Harpers), by the author of “Collections and Recollections," and is composed of papers that appeared in the Manchester Guardian during the year 1901. Naturally the themes selected for treatment are largely political in character, and the author's exposition of “ Individualism and Collectivism,” “The Failures of Democracy,” and “The Hope for Democracy” is especially interesting as an expression presumably representative of British thought on these subjects. There are also chapters on “Monarchy," which briefly sketch the history of the British throne from 1760 to the present day. The book as a whole is a book of anecdote and reminiscence rather than of philosophical speculation.

In this connection two little books by an American writer, Mr. Richard R. Bowker, on “The Arts of Life" (Houghton, Mifflin & Co.) deserve our attention. In one of these books Mr. Bowker treats of “Politics," and in the other of “Business." The latter volume contains a simple and straightforward exposition of current questions connected with the relations between labor and capital. The essay on politics is elementary, and contains a clear and succinct account of the modern American political system and its development.
