FOREWORD

Much has been written about the History of Indiana. Most folks live in the present and plan for the future. It seems well worth while, therefore, to consider for a short time the problems of today and of tomorrow. In these pages there will be found a concise description of Indiana as she is, and of the problems she faces. No effort is made to gloss over her shortcomings, no space is wasted in empty pæans. On the other hand, the good is related without exaggeration; and there is a great deal of good to be told.

An attempt has been made to have every statement of fact correct, but errors have probably escaped detection. Of such mistakes the writers desire to be informed.

In compiling data aid has been obtained from many persons, but especial thanks are due to Mr. James L. Clark of the Public Service Commission; Mr. Charles L. Henry, President of the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Traction Company; Mr. Edgar A. Perkins, of the Industrial Commission; Mr. George Schwab, Secretary of the Indiana State Federation of Labor; T. P. Littlepage, Esq., of Washington, D. C.; Mr. Floyd E. Wright, State Gas Inspector; Mr. Edward Barrett, State Geologist; Professor Stanley Coulter, of Purdue University; Professor Wm. E. Smythe, of DePauw University; Mr. John J. Walsh, Chief Inspector of Buildings and Factories; and Mr. Michael Scollard, Chief Inspector of Mines.
