This chapter explores the Island's position during the latter part of the nineteenth century. It shows that the efforts by the House of Keys and Sir Henry Loch who had been appointed Lieutenant-Governor resulted in the changes in 1866. One of these changes was the improved role for Tynwald. This chapter also discusses the 1897 general election, which leads to the recruitment of members to serve in the House into the new century. It reviews social interventions of the state. Some of these include Poor Relief Act of 1888, Elementary Education Act of 1872, Douglas Waterworks Act 1834, Bread, Flour and Corn Act 1880, and Castletown Town Act 1883. A rough approximation of the levels of revenue and expenditure on the Isle of Man is also addressed.
