Excerpt from The Dominion Annual Register and Review: For the Eighteenth Year of the Canadian Union, 1884
IN presenting the dominion annual register and review for 1884, to its friends, the Editor bespeaks for the new volume the same measure of public support that has been extended to past issues of the work. The register is now in the eighth year of its existence. It was founded at the suggestion of many leading public men, who had long felt the want of a reliable work of reference of its class. The Editor believes that the want referred to has been met and sup plied by the present publication. The press of the country, both Liberal and Conservative, almost without exception, has commended the work and individual opinion has been enthusiastic in its favour. The Editor will continue to add to and improve the register; and the volume now produced will, he ventures to hope, be found second to none of its class in any country. The marked characteristics of the register are unswerving impartiality in the record of political events, and thorough accuracy in regard to all statistics and matters of general information; and it is needless to state that every effort will be made by the Editor to maintain the high standing in these respects which his book has already obtained. In the present volume it will be observed that several Departments, in cludin g that embracing biographical data respecting living Canadian public men, have been considerably extended and enlarged. It is intended to make the Department last named a permanent feature of the register, and to include in it a notice of every leading Canadian public man of the day. Contributions to this and to every other Department of the register are cordially invited.
