To All English-speaking Folk

W T Stead, Hon. Sec. National Social Union




Steam-power, Electricity, War, Fear

    Pleads that all possible steps must be taken to avoid 'a fratricidal war between one hundred millions of English-speaking folk' on the two sides of the Atlantic (99), and warns that the 'shrinkage of the world beneath the potent hands of Electricity and Steam [...] render friction at many points inevitable in a constantly increasing ratio' (100).
