    PUBLISHER S NOTE. Father McGrady was born in Lexington, Ky., on June 6, 1863. Having completed his course of studies, he was ordained in the Cathedral of Galveston, Texas, in 1887. During the first six months of his ministry he was connected with the Cathedral in Galveston. In the early part of the following year he was assigned to the pastorate of St. Patrick s Church, Houston, and later on he was assigned to St. Patrick s Church in Dallas, Texas. In 1890 he returned to his native State and assumed tem porary charge of the Catholic congregation in Lexington. His next pastorate was Cynthiana, Ky., where he labored for four years, and in the summer of 1895 he was ap pointed pastor of St. Anthony s Church, Bellevue, Ky., and he still holds this position. The poverty of the masses, which increases with the march of civilization, had early made a deep impression on his mind, and in 1896 he began to study economics, but unfortunately for his purpose he perused the works of the old school, which attributed the economic ills of the age to the inevitable law of competition. His perplexity was partially relieved by reading quotquotMerrie England.quot However, about this time he began to peruse the works of Henry George, and he for the then thought that the Single Tax was the panacea evils of modern society. Pursuing his studies in Social ism, he began to see that the arguments advanced by Henry George for the common ownership of land, ap plied with grave force to all the means of production that all the wealth in the world and all the progress of the ages were products of social factors, and therefore the common property of society. He also perceived the fu tility of the Single Tax movement toheal the wounds which capitalism had inflicted on the toiling masses. Be coming thoroughly acquainted with the ablest exponents of Socialism, he became an ardent champion of the doc trine, and his voice has thrilled many vast audiences who have stood amazed at the bold denunciations he has hurled against the oppressors of mankind. That this book will carry the new hope for social jus tice to many thousands never before reached, is the hope and belief of . CHAPTER I. In the year 1793, Louis the Sixteenth, of France, was decapitated, the widowed queen, Marie Antoinette, was guillotined, Christianity was tabooed throughout the Re public, and the Goddess of Reason was enthroned on the high altar of Notre Dame, and the grand old Cathedral church of Paris was desecrated by the ribaldry of the in furiated populace. The Reign of Terror was triumphant. Danton and Robespierre were revelling in the blood of countless hosts, till the fate of their victims fell on their own guilty heads. The tricolor was borne in triumph by the Corsican adventurer through the vales of sunny Italy. The fame of Napoleon had reached the ends of the earth. He had immortalized his name at Toulon, Mentenotte and Lodi. The nations of Europe were startled by the march of his legions and the tramp of his battle steed. The Aus trian army had been driven before the flag of the new Republic like dust before the hurricane. The Netherlands and Normandy had been annexed to the dominion of France. Governments were falling and thrones were tot tering...
