He had noticed a similar phenomenon in the attitude of various people within the last four days, since architectural circles and even the world in general had begun to resound with the echoing news that the competition for the northern town hall had been won by a youth not twenty-three years of age.

His propositions were drastic, and based on the exclusion of a costly European regime and the substitution of a native administration. Even his mode of suppressing the slave trade had been as original as it was fearless.
