The speaker's time spent in India. The general condition of the county in respect of the forces. The strong tendency to support that one can roughly divide India into the British and the rest. The extremely complicated ethnological view of India. A slightly less complex political point of view. A practical division of Hindus versus the rest: an explanation of what the speaker means by that. The Indian temperament, with example. Questioning whether we supply the right material for the administration of India. Who we choose, and problems associated with that choice. The British administrative structure in India. The question of sedition, and the factor of education. Causes of sedition. The impossibility for the British Government at the present time to give up its administrative superiority simply for the sake of the Indian. The further question of representation. The process of establishing the Government of India, not in the sense of breaking away from Britain, but rather of localizing power and giving the people a part in the solution of its problems.
