Seventy thousand copies of this volume were ordered in America before a single copy was issued from the press in Chicago. Owing to my refusal to allow any but Union labour to be employed in producing the book, the binders were at first unable to cope with the demand. But as I did not think that If Christ came to Chicago He would go to sweat shops for His printing, the public had to wait till the Union binderies overtook the demand. The opportune refusal of the American News Company and the Union News Company to handle the book until the Black List was cut out somewhat relieved the pressure. As the Companies possess an absolute monopoly of sale 011 all the railways in the United States, I cut out the list. I did this the more readily because the interest in the Black List was so strictly local to Chicago that I did not think it would be worth while reproducing it in the present Edition.
