"It is one of the incidental results of the Education Act of 1902 that, up and down England and Wales, it has put new life into the elections for the County Councils. Except in the metropolis, these have, in the past, usually been somewhat dull affairs. Few electors realised what the County Council could do for the people. Still fewer believed, in the rural districts, that the councillors who had inherited the administrative work of Quarter Sessions would do the 'county business' with any more democratic a spirit than had been shown by the justices." - Introductory paragraph.
