discontinue this business which

because he can not raise sheep

his peaceful sheep must be sacri-0

The Famous Review Written by Sir
Walter Besant In Jubilee Year.
The following review of the
events of Queen Victoria's reign
was written by Sir Walter Besant
for the Diamond Jubilee number
of the London Illustrated News,
June 20th, 1897:
Victoria, by the grace of God,
queen for 60 years.
The occasion of our day of cele
bration is without parallel or pre
cedent. To us, we find it difficult
to stand outside and to consider
events in their true proportion,
the period seems like a grand tri
umphal march. To those of us
who can remember English life as
it was in the forties, the changes
that have fallen upon the country
are nothing short of a transform
ation. We are transformed in
deed; we no longer think as we
did; our daily manners and cus
toms are changed; our views of
things are changed; from peer to
peasant we are one and all trans
formed. And no one regrets the
change; the younger folk; indeed,
do not understand it! they have
been born in the later Victorian
period; to their mind things have
always been as they are.
Mere figures go for nothing.
That is to say, very few people
can realize millions or can under
stand what they mean. If I set
down a few it is for the sake of
defining what would otherwise
seem vague assertion. For in
stance, I propose a broad state
ment that during this long period
there has arisen in the national
mind such a spirit of enterprise,
endeavor and achievement, as has
no parallel in our history except
in the reign of Queen Eliiabeth.
Now, as then, the people have
been restling; it is a strange quali
ty in our - Anglo-Saxon race that
from time to time we become rest
less; this restlessness has shown
itself in colonization, in emigra
tion, in research, in discovery, in
invention-in changes of every
.s for figures then: The actual
increase in the area of the British
empire during the last 60 years
has keen about three and a half
millions of square miles; but,
since mere hill and plain do not
nmakc a country richer, it is well
to'add tha't, thus area is peopled
by at .least 80,000,000, whom are
gradually civilizing. Apart fitom
this extension there has been
created, absolutely created out of
riothing, new populations-of 4,2
000,000 in Australia, lind nearly
1,000,000 in New Zeland, ivit
noble cities which.fo
dor of theirbu and the
cellen.governmuent ma
s side the finest cities of
Ie Old World. In fact, there
have arisen four great nations
Danada, Australia, South Africa
md New. Zeland--any one of
which must in the nature of things
ecome, nominally as well as ac-.
;ually, sovereign and independent.
Co my mind this is the most im
ortant political event of the cen
ury. The great problem of the
umnediate future will no longer
~e the preservation of those States

ire-servation of friendship and al

sw countries impossible. r

one may hear a wild word shouted
at a Hyde Park meeting, it evokes

in loyality.
What has effected the change?
Prosperity paftly. But the suc

still greater degree. What we
commonly call refim is the ex

Qf importance, no doubt, but of
small importance compared with
the various reforms which have
affectA the daily life of the peo
Formerly the mill-owner and
the mine-owner took the cildren
at 6 and 7 years of age and worked
them all day long in the run of
the mill, sometimes al night.
That power was taken from them;
it was proclaimed by act of par
liament\that a man shA not have
power to work a hand more than
so many hours a day.
Next in importance was the
abolition of the debtor's pison.
When the queen ascended the
throne it 'was possible to lock up
a man for lifk who owed a few
shillings. Tink of the barbarity,
the stupidity of it! Think *hat
a burden, what a terror, was taken
from life when those accursed
walls of the Fleet and the queen's
bench were thrown down!
To these acts add the abolition
of flogging in the army and navy.
Remember that'in 1837 every cap
tain of a ship had it in his power
to flog a man for anything without
trial-to give him three dozen
lashes or as many' dozen as he
pleased. There were cases in
which, to make the man smart,
the captain flogged the last-man
down' from the gards. -It fs ron

the whole of that great class from
which the army and the navy are
recruited. They can now ~nlist
