pardon much of partisanship in the historian; but throughout the
volume an admirably judicial tone is preserved, and indications of
partisan spirit are almost wholly absent. 'There is so much of in-
terest in the subject itself that one regrets what now and then
seems to be a sketchiness of treatment. However, the most ob-
vious criticism applies to the narrow range of sources made use
of, especially as it is upon monographs such as this that the more
pretentious histories must be largely based. Allusion has been
made to the neglect of the War of the Rebellion Records. An-
other strange omission is that of the Johnson Papers in the
Library of Congress, while but little attention seems to have been

unfinished manuscripts; and the footnotes and the index are care-
fully made. It is to be hoped that some competent hand will now
undertake the task of carrying on the story in detail to the end of
the radical regime in 1877.

State in Mexico, in an article entitled "The Contest for the Laws
of Reform in Mexico"; and Dr. James Ford Rhodes writes a
stirring account of the operations of a lawless Irish labor organiza-
