  • Housing of the rural population in Ireland 

    Synnott, Nicholas J. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    It is generally supposed that the question of the housing of agricultural and other labourers in rural districts, which was dealt with in piecemeal and desultory fashion last Session, is now receiving the earnest and ...
  • Ireland since the famine: a sketch of fifty years' economic and legislative changes 

    Bailey, William F. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    In addressing you this evening I propose to review, as shortly as the subject will admit, the economic and legislative changes that have taken place in Ireland during the last half-century?to take stock of our position ...
  • The land purchase problem 

    Johnston, W.J. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    It is a far cry from the turbulent scenes in the Legislative Assembly of 1790 to the quiet, almost dull, offices of the Estates Commissioners in 1906; and yet the changes that in the one case were effected with noise ...
  • Licensing and publichouse reform in Ireland 

    Lawson, William (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    "No apology is, I think, needed for introducing this subject to the consideration of the Society, although I could wish that the task had fallen to one more conversant with it than I am. The evils of intemperance are ...
  • Licensing and publichouse reform in Ireland [a continuation] 

    Lawson, William (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    A little more than a year ago I read a paper on this subject before this Society (Journal, Vol. XI, p. 106), dealing mainly with the Report of the Royal Commission of 1896. I intend now to deal with the schemes proposed ...
  • Municipal trading 

    Shaw, James J. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    One of the most strongly-marked characteristics of the older school of British Political Economy was its intense jealousy of State interference with the processes of industry or with the course of trade. From Adam Smith ...
  • A plea for tillage farming on co-operative lines 

    Castletown, Lord, of Upper Ossory (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    I must first of all apologise for the type of paper I am privileged to read before you tonight. It must be to a certain extent, egotistical, it must be in the nature of a proposition, and I must ask you to believe what ...
  • Practical education in our schools 

    Finlay, T.A. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    It will be admitted as a fundamental principle that the aim of all education is to fit children to do their duty worthily and successfully in later life. This conception of education covers a wide field. It includes the ...
  • The practice of the Commercial Court 

    Stanuell, Charles A. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    I must preface my remarks upon this subject by stating that the Commercial Court to which I allude has no existence in Ireland, and therefore I am at a disadvantage in dealing with a system of judicial procedure with ...

    I have selected as my subject "The Principal Results of the Census of the United Kingdom in 1901." The Census was taken in England and Scotland under the Census (Great Britain) Act, 1900, which applied equally to England ...
  • The progress of sanitary science in Belfast 

    O'Neill, Henry (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    The rapid increase of Belfast in population, and its rapid rise in commercial importance, chiefly accounts for the fact that the construction of good streets and erection of its principal public buildings dates from ...
  • Proposals for a new Labourers' Bill: an attempt to solve the rural housing question in Ireland 

    Synnott, Nicholas J. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    We have now had more than 20 years experience of the attempt to provide habitable houses for labourers in country districts in Ireland, by means of an elaborate code of seven Statutes, beginning with the Labourers' Act ...
  • The report of the Tariff Commission 

    Geoghegan, Hanbury C. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    I propose in this paper to criticise Mr. Chamberlain's Tariff Commission and its report issued on the 21st July last; just a week after the meeting held at Westminster, passed resolutions adopting his fiscal policy. The ...
  • Salmon fisheries in Ireland and the report of the Irish Inland Fisheries Commission 

    Conner, H. D. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)

  • Scottish Private Bill Legislation in working 

    Samuels, Arthur W. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)

  • Suggested substitutes for the present Poor Law system 

    Dawson, Charles (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    The continual complaints in Great Britain and Ireland of the inefficiency and extravagance of the Poor Law System, have been accentuated of late by the labour crisis and want of employment. Criticisms abound and ...
  • Technical education for commerce 

    Oldham, C.H. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    I imagine that to many of my audience tonight there must appear to be something incongruous about the title of this paper. Technical Schools are well understood in these countries to mean institutions that educate ...
  • The tourist movement in Ireland 

    Wilson, D. J. (Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland, 1906)
    My paper should, I am aware, be devoted to a statistical and social review. I have discovered, however, that the subject is eminently one which does not lend itself to statistics, and I propose instead to treat it from ...
