The Book of the Month. Mr. Alfred Milner's "England in Egypt"
Regular Feature, Abstract
Engineering, Engineers, Status, Imperialism
Notes that 'the work of Scott-Moncrieff deserves a high place in the services which England has rendered to civilization'. In Egypt he has saved the government a huge amount of money by restoring 'a great dam, which had been allowed to go out of repair, about fourteen miles down stream from Cairo', and which has now helped to alleviate, at least partially, the continual 'Struggle for Water'.
