Annotation

Mostly a reform scheme centered on the Salvation Army, but includes the transformation of society through a series of city, farm, and overseas colonies. The city colonies were designed to get the poor off the streets. A factory in the city helped train them to work, and the city colony sent people to the farm colony which consisted of a cooperative farm and industrial and agricultural villages. These were then expected to send people to the overseas colonies. Some such schemes were established; see Clark C. Spence, The Salvation Army Farm Colonies. Tucson: University of Arizona Press, 1985. For an attack on the Salvation Army, see 1890 Pope Booth.
