The meaning of money and its manipula

is something of vital interest for all classes of
society in the great series:
liy JOHN PAUL RYAN
BEGINNING IN THE JANUARY
The first instalment goes into the causes of the October panic; its
effect on all wage-earners as well as on men of means; it shows you why
trust companies have privileges denied National banks ; it opens to you for
the first tunc the doors of the dramatic secret conferences between the mil
lionaires, philanthropists, and Government officers which helped to carry the
country over the crisis; it tells you how the people have suffered through
carelessness and mismanagement.
All this is in January. In succeeding instalments Mr. Ryan will con
sider the question of currency and the commercial, industrial, and financial
future of America and Americans as it may be conditioned by war, politics
or the tariff.
