HE information contained in this book should dispel the illusion that Unionist Ulster is superior in things moral and material to the rest of Ireland. For the claim of Unionist Ulster over all, the only foundation is the vaunted boast of the leaders of the movement against Irish Rule, repeated from genera tion to generation, without any authority being given in its support, until by the mere power of reiteration it had come to be accepted as true in England generally. All the time the repudia tion of the legend lay in official publications issued by the highest authorities - by the Command of His Majesty the King, and the orders of Parliament.
Speaking generally, I think it is deeply to be regretted that the information contained in Parliamentary Blue Books and White Papers - information of the greatest interest and import ance in its bearing upon the social conditions of the Common wealth - is not made, more easily accessible to the public. It was only by accident, I might say, that I came upon the true facts in regard to Ulster in the course of my investigations as a student of affairs in Ireland. I had set out upon a general examination of the social state of Ireland, and as I proceeded with my inquiries the Ulster Legend disclosed itself. It was then I decided to bring the Northern Province well under the searchlights of Parliamentary Blue Books and White Papers.
Many books have been written on Ulster, but this, I think, 18 the first to treat the subject statistically.
