Journal of The Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland Vol. XIII Part XCII 1912/1913
In dealing with the subject of international time, I should
like to state at once that I propose to deal with it in a popular
style without any scientific terms, as I think that there have
been some misunderstandings of the subject due to the
elaborate scientific explanations which have been put forward,
and not understood.
I propose to first explain what I mean by the expression
"International Time." I refer to an arrangement between
the nations who belong to the Postal Union, entered into
about 1884, under which a general system of time applicable
to the whole world was introduced, and recommended to the
various nations who had joined the Postal Union, nearly all
the civilized globe.
