YESTERDAY Mr W. H. James successfully submitted to the legislature his Dill for the amendment of the Metropolitan Open Spaces Bill, for it passed a second reading by and under the fostering influences of Govern- ment smiles of approval. The measure, if it becomes law, will assuredly be a boon to the pent-up citizens of the metropolis, for it will not only transform some localities which are altogether dingy, into something more sightly and picturesque, but it will give more breathing space and ampler room for the growth and adaptation of sanitary science. It will give power to majorities of two-thirds of those interested to transfer squares, private gardens, and disused burial grounds to the- Metropolitan Board of Works, or the district vestry, pro- vided those who have existing rights in them are paid reasonable compensation. There are just now many disused churchyards in the most squalid parts of London, and who will say that the conversion of these dismal places into something infinitely more pleasant will not effect a needed and whole- some improvement ? While we, as i £ duty bound, are not unmindful of the reverence due to the dead, we must not forget our duty to the living and in this matter we do not think there is anything antagonistic in the joint obligation.
