A new scheme for relieving the pressure on London has

been started, in the shape of a Company, with a capital of a :million,—the Suburban Village Company, —who propose to -erect suburban villages for all classes, carefully separating them according to rentals, and to build large suites of work- men's chambers on sites in London itself. The latter idea may pay well now, as the Government will lend half the money at 4 per cent., and we- heartily wish it may. If we had only one -company managed on business principles and earning a great dividend at such work, London might be rebuilt -within this generation.
