EMPIRE EDUCATION. I

EMPIRE EDUCATION. I Mr Allen Stoneham, who stood at the last election for the Bosworth division of liincolnshire, reports that he was much ex- orcised in his mind upon finding that the people knew very little about the British JEmpire, and that after the contest-in which he was defeated-he sent to the tClubs and Schools a supply of maps and text-books on the subject. His gifts, he fldds, were welcomed with enthusiasm. It 40es not speak very highly for our system of elementary education that Mr Stoneham should have had this experience. It is not in the least surprising that in a division like that of Bosworth, which is wholly agri- cultural and mining, there should be a lack of information on this question, because, unless the information is acquired in the schools, there are very few opportunities of obtaining it. In these circumstances a large number of very influential gentlemen have asked the Lord Mayor of London to preside at a meeting at the Mansion House, with the object of promoting the cause of Empire education, and the Lord Mayor, in consenting, has appointed Tuesday next for the gathering. At present, while the objects of the requisitionists are clear enough, the means by which they seek to attain them appear to be a little indefinite, but, no doubt, they recognise that if they are to get people to take an interest in the Empire, the most effective way will be to induce the children to read and write about it.
