J. Buell, who gave his entire time, during the legislative session of 1915, to a careful study of the record of each member of both House and Senate and a thoro analysis of all important measures.Mr.
Buell has wisely left the record of each member to speak for itself.We know Mr. Buell to be honest, independent and fearless, and believe he has produced a History of the Legislature of 1915 that every citizen can read with profit.(Signed) Hugh T. Halbert, Louis Nash, T.T. Hudson, Elwood S. Corser.Preface By The Author.This is the fourth time that a history of the Minnesota Legislature has been given to the public.These books have attempted to analyze, in a clear, simple and fearless manner, the more important legislative work of each session- and to show to the voters just how their representatives had voted in committee and on the floor of the House and Senate on these important matters.This publicity has had its effect.
Many extreme conservatives, reactionaries, and special interest men have been retired to private life, and more progressive and honest men sent in their places.There has been a great improvement in the direction of intelligence, honesty and independence.
Steadily the people have been able to get more and the corporations and special interests less.I believe the legislature of 1915 has to its credit as much thoroly correct legislation and as few dangerous enactments as any in the history of the state.Some of my readers may think this a rash statement- but, when you have gone thru the different chapters carefully, perhaps the good features will look better and the sins not so heinous.Much credit is due to those public spirited citizens whose financial aid has made these books possible.
As they have always been sold at about the cost of printing and postage, they have never brought any profit to the authors.Write me your candid opinion of this book.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
