PUBLISHERS ADVERTISEMENT.

No recent presentation of the abuses which have become part of the working of the political machinery of our great cities has attracted so much public attention as that made by Mr. Wm. M. Ivins, the City Chamberlain of New York. His address before the Commonwealth Club, with its supplementary papers, has formed the subject of newspaper discussion throughout the country, and has awakened an amount of interest in the reform of party methods of nomination and election which is well calculated to encourage those who have long regarded this reform as one of the most pressing necessities of our time. We have asked Mr. Ivins to place these papers at our disposal, with the view of satisfying a general desire to obtain them in a compact and collected form. With the addition of two of Mr. Ivins's articles, originally published in Harper's WEEKLY, the series will be found to constitute a work of exceptional value, possessing, as it does, the character of a treatise, at once exhaustive and thoroughly readable, on a subject of vital importance to the people of this city, and bearing with manifest directness on the conditions of pure politics in every part of the country. As an aid to the political education of young men, the book is no less valuable than as a guide to the promoters of reform legislation, and a contribution to the knowledge possessed by the great body of voters in regard to abuses which have done so much to obstruct the exercise of popular sovereignty. We have pleasure in accompanying this little volume with the assurance that its author possesses, in a very uncommon degree, the ability to discuss his subject with authority, clearness, and force, and we commend it very cordially to the attention of all patriotic citizens.

HARPER & BROTHERS. FRANKLIN SQUARE, NEW YORK, April 4, 1887.
