PREFACE

[ocr errors][merged small]

This book is the result of an attempt to set forth, as it exists in the United States to-day, that law of labor disputes and the regulation of industrial affairs and protection of employees which has had its greatest development in the last few years. While it is hoped that the work is sufficiently full and accurate to serve as a legal text-book, the author's chief object has been to make it a clear and trustworthy guide for laboring men and their several organizations throughout the United States. Therefore, though occasionally indicating in what directions future improvement may be looked for, he has mainly confined himself to a statement of the law as it exists to-day. To save space, the words chapter, section, etc., have generally been omitted from the citations of statutes, their absence being indicated by commas; and the references are always to the annual laws of the several States, or to the latest revision in general use. The abbreviation C. is used for Constitution.
