V�v7eights and measures Are surely our National joke but like most jokes Are sometimes exasperating. From time to time serious minded people say engineers bring the subject into the open give it a Good spanking which produces visible effect and let it Drift Back into its old ways. But one of these Days it will be shaken out of its lethargy when Empire traders really discover its disadvantages in foreign business and make a determined Effort to introduce the Decimal system. One reason for the survival of the old Jumble is the fact that America accepted the foot As a unit of measure although America like must have special american tons and Gallons. Although the Sun never sets on Britain s ancient weights and measures it rises every Day and everywhere on the scientific metric system. The question to one with far reaching censequence3. A change in our standards of weights and measures could not be accomplished quickly and it is questionable whether it would be wholly practical or desirable to adopt the French standards. In our coinage we Are not far from a Decimal system. A Florin is the tenth part of a Pound and if a Penny were made the Twenty fifth part of a Florin the Farthing could serve theoretically at least As the lowest Copper Coin in a Decimal system of coinage. When an approach is made however to weights and in cry a r a the Means whereby a change can be made is not so easy to and very Little calculation is needed to estimate the great Cost which a change would involve. There is Little doubt that our present system is cumbersome and ludicrous but a change would be As cumbersome for Many years. Taking it All round the Case is against our old system and in favour of the new but the greatest difficulty is to decide How the change can be made and when it should commence.
