The necessity for a reform of Private Bill procedure is so universally acknowledged, and the English, Scotch, and Irish press have, within the last few weeks, so emphatically reiterated the demand frequently put forward for such reform, that it is unnecessary to occupy time in again repeating the reasons upon which this demand is based, in again detailing instances of the extravagant and profitless expenditure which the present method compels, and in reciting once more the story of the worry, risk, haste, and oppression of the system that has so long depleted the capital and retarded and blighted the energies and efforts of industrial life in Ireland. It will be a more profitable task to try and arrive at a practical conclusion. To see what best can now be done to effect a sound reform, and to endeavour to put forward such suggestions as may assist, through consideration and discussion of past efforts and recent proposals, to attain an effective result in the near future.
