Excerpt from Trade Fallacies: A Criticism a Criticism of Existing, Suggestions for a Reform Towards National Prosperity As I write, the revolution in Russia is the topic on every one's tongue. By the great majority in this country, the end of the Romanoff despotism has been regarded as sudden and surprising; it had endured for so many centuries that it appeared impossible it could be finished in the inside of a week. But the few who had studied attentively Russian political and social life are aware the abdication was only the final deed in a course of action which had extended over two generations and more, and for which much blood had been shed, many tears had flowed and sacrifice of life and liberty had been willingly offered up. A revolution are the short birth-pangs of a new era; but the heavy weariness and pain of gestation has lasted previously for a long period of time. Students of Kipling will remember that beautiful poem in his History of England entitled " The Dawn Wind." The last verse, so prophetic of these times, may be quoted here: So when the world is asleep, and there seems no hope of her waking Out of some long bad dream that makes her mutter and moan, Suddenly, all men arise to the noise of fetters breaking, And every one smiles at his neighbour, and tells him his soul is his own.
