Abstract/ Summary

The preface explains that part of the purpose is to encourage the "establishment of better laws for a much abused people... we are led to the conclusion that the laws of our country are not in accordance with the principles of justice and equality. The abandoned farms and the falling off, in number, of inhabitants in rural towns, almost everywhere, is proof positive that there is something wrong...that the laws passed for many years, allowing special privileges to the few at the expense of the many, are largely responsible for present conditions."
