Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ... and with a few modifications would have proved successful. But as it has been thought desirable that a change should be made, the scheme proposed in the Order in Council of July 31, 1882, will, I think, meet with general approval. Some modifications in the details of the plan seem desirable. 1.
