    Excerpt from A Review of Peasant Proprietorships in Other Lands: Address Delivered December 12th, 1887, by Request of the Political Committee, at the Conservative Club, Liverpool The gradual absorption of puny potentates under the suzerainty of greater sovereigns however tended in one direction, population in Europe steadily increased, whilst the soil which brought forth the supplies remained always a fixed quantity, this generated the commencement of what we term agrarian difficulties. - The ground supplying the food remaining stationary, whilst the mouths requiring to be fed being ever on the increase. Happily for civilization when human life becomes more secure, and strife and discord are reduced to narrower limits, and the arts and sciences begin to be cradled into existence, thus the properties of the magnetic needle became known, and the discovery of a new world by Columbus gave, as it were, a temporary safety valve to an overburdened peasantry in Europe. The art of printing was ushered into existence, and the use of gunpowder in warfare levelled all distinction between the cavalier and the mere thrall, so far as immunity from personal danger was concerned. Until then the mail-clad knight had advantages in the battle field which the rank and file were not possessed of, thus, paradoxical as it may seem, the invention of this destructive explosive, also added its quota to lessening in some degree the destruction of life, inasmuch as hand-to-hand conflicts, did not then, as formerly, so often decide the issue of a campaign.
