POSTSCRIPT.



Since the earlier volumes of this edition went to press
in 1885, important changes have taken place in India,
to some of which it is needful here to refer. A new
Province, larger than France, has been added to the
Indian Empire; the long contemplated railway which
will traverse inner India direct from Calcutta to Bombay,
has been commenced ; the Lusitanian schism, which
during two centuries rent the Roman Catholic Church in
India, has been closed. Less conspicuous local changes
— administrative, legislative, educational, and economic —
have occurred in every Province. Their bare enumera-
tion would involve a supplement quite beyond the scope
of this work. In the Preface to the present edition I
put forward the view that, ' so far from represent-
ing the " stationary stage " of civilisation, accordino-
to a former school of English economists, India is
now one of the most rapidly progressive countries
of the earth.' The onward movements in India,



vi POSTSCRIPT.

during the brief period which has since elapsed, justify
these words. 1

In order, however, to prevent misconceptions, it is
expedient to narrate very briefly the events which render
the lengthy articles on British and Independent Burma
in volume iii., and various lesser notices throughout the
other twelve volumes dealing with the same territories,
no longer a correct representation of the actual state of
things. The aggressive attitude of the King of Upper
Burma, and his obstinate refusal to redress the wrongs
done by his servants to British subjects, compelled Lord
Dufferin at the close of 1885 to send an expeditionary
force to Mandalay. The King was dethroned, and
deported for safe custody to British India. After an
attempt to administer the country through the Central
Council of Burmese Ministers, an attempt frustrated by
the old corrupt officials in the Districts, and by the
dynastic discords of the pretenders to the throne, Upper
Burma was annexed to British India by proclamation on
the 1st January 1886. In February 1886, Lord Dufferin
proceeded to Burma to organise the administration of
the new Province. The disorders incident to the dis-



1 The considerations which would have pointed to the expediency of amplifying
this Postscript have been anticipated by a recent remarkable essay on India by Sir
Henry Sumner Maine. 'From 1858 to 1887,' he says, 'India has been governed
by the Crown under the control of Parliament, and the facts and figures which I have
given seem to me to show that, taking the standards of advance which are employed
to test the progress of Western countries, there is no country in Europe which, accord-
ing to these criteria, and regard being had to the point of departure, has advanced
during the same period more rapidly and farther than British India.' — The Reign of
Queen Victoria, vol. i. p. 518. (Smith, Elder, & Co., 1887.)



POSTSCRIPT. vii

banding of the royal troops, and the struggles of various
party leaders and pretenders to the sovereignty, gave
rise to numerous marauding bands known as dacoits.
These plunderers were active throughout the hot months
and the malarious rainy season of 1886 ; sometimes as
petty gang-robbers, sometimes as bodies of well-armed
banditti, and in certain localities as an organised array,
operating on a scale which might almost be dignified
with the name of guerilla war.

The close of the unhealthy season, and the approach
of the cold weather of 1886-87, enabled the British
authorities to deal with these depredators. In November
1886 a force of troops and armed police was gradually
spread over Upper Burma in such numbers as to render
plunder a very perilous livelihood. The peasantry
began to array themselves more actively on the side
of order ; in many cases taking their protection into
their own hands, and slaughtering or capturing the
dacoits. The Buddhist clergy were almost from the
first on our side, and they made their influence decisively
felt as the country settled down. Meanwhile, the
annexed territories had been divided into British
Districts of more convenient size, and placed under
a carefully selected staff of civil administrators. By
the end of the cold weather of 1886-87 order was
fairly established ; and during the ensuing hot weather
(1887) the work of pacification went forward. Satis-
factory relations were also established with the adjoining
States and hill tribes to the North and East. The new
Districts are now firmly united with Lower Burma into

a single British Province under a Chief Commissioner.
So far as can be foreseen at present (August 1887),
the period of conquest in Upper Burma is over, and
the task of consolidation is being accomplished by rapid
strides. 1

While dealing with recent changes in Upper Burma,
I take the opportunity of correcting an oversight in
regard to the educational system in Lower Burma.
Sixteen years ago, when I was collecting materials
for the first edition of this work, it seemed to me a
subject of regret that the British authorities had not
availed themselves more heartily of the system of
indigenous instruction given in the monasteries and
religious houses by the Buddhist clergy. During the
interval which has since elapsed, the system of public
instruction in British Burma may almost be said to have
been reconstituted on the basis of indigenous monastic
teaching. I have mentioned the function assigned to
such native agency at page 207 of volume iii. and in
other places. But there are also passages in which I

1 In the Preface to this edition I regretted that the necessity of printing in England,
while the author was in India, unavoidably led to errors in the press. An unfortunate
example of this class occurs in my account of recent transactions in Burma at page
430 of volume vi. I had kept back the sheet in order to incorporate the facts of the
Proclamation of Annexation and of Lord Dufferin's visit to Burma. But the new
sentences, when forwarded to England, got transposed ; and the events of January
and February 1886 are made to precede the expeditionary force and occupation of
Mandalay in November 1885. A clerical error, also due to the insertion of a new
sentence in the proof, and more likely to lead to confusion, had escaped me in the
same volume. In line 5 of footnote 2, page 230 of volume vi., for ' The latter •'
please read ' The former.'' Again, in lines 22 and 24 of p. 471 of volume v., the
words ' right ' and c left ' have been inadvertently transposed.



POSTSCRIPT. ix

omit to notice or to sufficiently emphasize the change.
I gladly therefore take this occasion to again acknow-
ledge the educational work done by the monastic
institutions and the Buddhist clergy in Burma, and
also the wise use which the English authorities in
the Province have, for years past, made of this
indigenous basis of public instruction.

The ancient schism between the Catholic Priests
and Bishops appointed under the jurisdiction of the
King of Portugal or his representative, the Archbishop
of Goa, and the Vicars-Apostolic sent to India under
the direct authority of the Pope, has been narrated in
volume vi. 1 Since that volume was written, the
provisional arrangement therein mentioned has been
matured into a permanent settlement of the long-
conflicting claims. The local jurisdiction of the Arch-
bishop of Goa, as representing the King of Portugal,
has been respected. But, generally speaking, the Roman
Catholic Church in India has now been brought under
the authority of the Pope. His Holiness has issued
an instrument setting forth the new settlement of the
Indian Catholic Church; and a hierarchy of Arch-
bishops and Bishops, under the direct regulation of
Rome, has taken the place of the Vicars and Prefects
Apostolic in partibus infidelium.

During the printing of the fourteen volumes, much
new information has come into my possession, some-

times too late to be used. Thus, while I correctly state 1
that the style of ' the Governor-General-in-Council ' was
first authorized by the statute of ^ Geo. III., I else-
where mention, on the authority of an official Report
on the Old Records of the India Office, that the title
of Governor-General had occurred incidentally a century
before. 2 A personal examination of the original manu-
scripts has since convinced me that this is erroneous ;
and that the official reporter probably misread the
title of ' Captain-General ' for ' Governor- General.' I
am indebted to Colonel Yule, C.B., for materials, also
derived from the India Office MSS., which throw
grave doubts on the popular derivation of Chanak (or
Achanak), the native name for Barrackpur, from its
supposed founder, Job Charnock. The name seems
to have existed before that worthy could have given it
his patronymic.

For these and other deficiencies I respectfully plead
the necessity imposed upon me to finish the undertak-
ing within stringent limits as to time. The present
fourteen volumes endeavour to truthfully condense the
data which I have been able, during sixteen years, to
collect concerning an Empire nearly equal in size to all
Europe, less Russia. They were intended to subserve
the purposes of administration, and the Government
wisely declined to permit of leisure for literary complete-
ness, at the cost of delays which would have impaired
the practical utility of the work. Every year adds new

stores to our information regarding India ; and each
decennial Census enables the economist and the admini-
strator to handle Indian problems with a surer grasp.
It may perhaps be my privilege, at some future time, to
bring out a further edition of these volumes, with ampler
knowledge and clearer lights. If this be not granted, I
leave with confidence to the servants of the Crown in
India who come after me, the task of perfecting the
work which I have begun.

In conclusion, I wish to express my obligations to Mr.
J. S. Cotton, late Fellow of Queen's College, Oxford,
and Mr. H. Morse Stephens, B.A. of Balliol College,
for the Index which forms this volume. That Index
is a careful expansion of the one to the first edition.
It brings to a point, and renders available at a glance,
the masses of local information collected throughout the
250 Districts of India during the past sixteen years.
Its plan, general outline, and major headings, are
necessarily my own : but to Mr. Cotton and Mr.
Stephens belongs the merit of its execution.
