Transcript (in the main, the manual worker), in what he produces is declining. Making no other deduction from the gross value of the product than that of the cost of materials, and dividing the remainder by the number of persons listed in the census as wage-earners, we have the following result: Average Average Average Year Wages Net Production Share Per Cent 1899 $426 $1,025 41.6 1904 477 1,150 41.5 1909 518 1,290 40.1 "This 40.1 per cent is not quite all, if the census figures are approximately correct, that the worker gets. The comparison shows, however, that whatever he gets, the amount was relatively less in 1909 than in 1904 or 1899." $10,000,000 TRIBUTE EVERY YEAR In another place we have given the facts as to the amount of exploitation of each individual laborer as indicated by the United States census reports on manufacturers.

Several studies have been made of this important and vitally interesting question. John C. Kennedy, now Socialist member of the city council of Chicago, presented the results of his study of the matter in an editorial in The Workers' World, in 1912. Allan L. Benson, now candidate for president on the Socialist ticket, has made studies of exploitation in specific industries in articles which appeared in Pearson's Magazine. Other studies have been made from time to time by various investigators. But by far the most authoritative and satisfactory examination of this whole subject of unearned income and exploitation has been made by Professor Scott Nearing, formerly of the State University of Pennsylvania, now of the Toledo University. His book on "Income" is an exhaustive inquiry into this very problem of exploitation. He divides all incomes into two kinds—service income and property 37
