Excerpt from The Premium System of Paying Wages: Reprinted From "the Engineer," 1902

The eight articles reprinted in this little volume appeared originally in "The Engineer" in the spring of 1902., The demand for copies was so great that it was decided to republish the series in a collected form. The work met with immediate success, and four editions were exhausted. Then for a time interest appeared to die down. In spite of their professions to the contrary at the Carlisle Conference of 1902 the unions either actively or passively opposed the system, and it made slow progress. For ten years little notice was taken of the subject.

But the coming of the War, the certainty that there will be a commercial conflict of unequalled intensity a few years hence, coupled with the knowledge that British work people who are now tasting high wages will not be content to return to the old level, has led to a revival of interest in the Premium System of Paying Wages. We have received many requests for copies of the book, and it is to meet them - the fourth edition having been long since exhausted - that this new issue has been prepared.

A few changes have been made and a few paragraphs have been omitted, but after fourteen years, in which experience of the system has been gained, we see little or no reason seriously to modify the opinions originally expressed. Increased production is now the watchword of all manufacturing engineers, and we have not yet met with any: better means of attaining it than the Premium System.
