Excerpt from Confessions of an Industrial Insurance Agent: A Narrative of Fact
It was not in answer to the wail of a disappointed publisher that the muck-raker dashed out upon the battle field of commerce and began to lay about him, right| and left, the staggering blows which... caused the corrupted money-grabbers to cower and whine. But rather was it in defence of the silent plea from a public much abused; a people in dire need of a true champion. But the field is vast, and this being an age of specialties, every trade must have a much-raker of its own.
Fraud and cheat abhor the light. Truth loves the sunbeams. The real work of the much-raiser was, and still is, to uncover the hidden schemes of the men of business, the men who take and spend the people's earn ings, and lay these schemes in their reality before the public eye. If they do not tremble and shrink, they are what they should be; if they do, then it is high time for a cure.
