DURING the past week the. Government have decided to dissolve Parliament and to make an immediate appeal to the country. This means that at a time which the business people of the country regard as one of the most important- and lucrative periods of the year the nation will be plunged into a general election, and the condition of every in- dustry disorganized. For however quickly the election may be. carried on it cannot possibly be finished until a few days before Christmas, when the time for the Christmas trade will have passed. It is a deplorable state of things and the more so because it is unnecessary. Unionists do not want it-neither do the Radical-Socialists for that matter-but an election is imperative because MR. REDMOND says so. MR. REDMOND himself makes no secret of the fact that he is going to make the Government "toe the line." The quotation em- braces his own words. There is no other reason for a dissolution. The Government have received no reverse in either House of Parliament, and boast that they have a majority of over a hundred. Yet they dissolve Parliament. They rush a portion of the Budget under a remorseless closure, they sacri- fice public Bills, such as the Shop Hours Bill, which Parliament is anxious to proceed with, and they throw vast inconvenience and expense upon public bodies and individuals by forcing a mass of private Bills to another Parliament. EVEN the Parliament Bill, their most important measure, which embodies the grave constitutional changes which MR. REDMOND has demanded, is not to be considered in the House of Commons. It would not even have been placed before the House of Lords had not the Lords demanded that it should be submitted to them. Even MR. PHILIP SNOWDEN declared that unless the Parliament Bill was dis- cussed more fully in the House of Commons than the Veto Resolutions the Lords will be provided with an unanswerable argument that the House of Commons is merely an instrument for registering the dictates of the Executive Government." And, remember, the majority which the Government gained at the last election was returned to deal with this very matter. Still the electors are to endure all the trouble and loss of another election at the most inconvenient time of the year. Why? Because MR. REDMOND has said: We have the power and will make them toe the line." We have it direct from MR. REDMOND'S cashier in America, MR. PATRICK FORD. Writing in the Irish W orld" on Tuesday, that gentleman says:—"It is the Irish leader who is responsible for the domi- nant fact of the situation. He it was, JOHN RED- .,fO-,D, representing and speaking for Ireland, who insisted on the Prime Minister, MR. ASQUITH, keep- ing his pledge and dealing practically and effective- ly with the Veto power of the House of Lords, which was, and is, the only obstacle to the con- cession of Ireland's dofnand of Home Rule." i DURING the past week two notable speeches have been delivered by Radical leaders. The first was by MR. LLOVD GEORGE at Limehouse, and the other by MR. WINSTON CHURCHILL. Neither of them has succeeded in hiding what is the real issue before the country at this crisis. The CHAXCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER, with that malicious adroitness, for which he has a special genuius, and which has dis- gusted so many of his own party-SIR J. D. REES among the latest-evaded the issue and tried to pour ridicule upon the one great cry of which ha and his party are in mortal dread. His be at the aristocracy of this country who have married American wealth hurts his own side as much as any. and there must have ben members of his own cabinet who winced at it. But the acquisition of American dollars by marriage is a very different kind of thing from the collection of them for the purpose to which MR. REDMOND is going to put them. MR. REDMOND'S dollars have been gathered up under the supervision of MR. PATRICK FORD, a man who was described by the Parnell Commission as a known advocate of crime and the use of dynamite," a man who has collected more money than any man living for the Nationalist party. He has financed dynamiters whose project it was to I lay the principal British cities in ruin, and he is to-day the paymaster who finds the American dollars to smash up the British Parliament. What parallel is there between this money. and the wealth that is brought over to this country, not only by American brides but in many other ways, and used fqr the benefit of British trades and industries? .r -1- _'1_- MR. INSTON c-HURCHILL was not so naiurany abusive as Mr. LLOYD GEORGE, neither did he make any convincing reply to the indictment of his party by the Unionists. His defence of MR. RED- MOND'S bag of money carries no conviction, and his statement that the Unionists had no other argument against the Government proposals was untrue. The Unionist programme will bear every analysis. First of all it aims at settling on broad and lasting lines the Constitutional question by reforming the House of Lords so that we shall have a body not only possessing the power to exercise the most I necessary functions of a Second Chamber, but possessing also the full confidence of the country. Secondly, to effect such a revision of our fiscal policy as will lessen the crying evils of unemploy- ment, safeguard the industries on which the wel- fe of the masses of the nation depen, and enable us to enter upon that course of further consolidation of the Empire to which our kinsmen across the seas have long urged us. Next, to apply to the United Kingdom those principles of the ownership of land to which Unionists have already I given effect in Ireland with such benefit to that country. Unionists seek to increase largely the number of owners of the soil. Ownership and not! tenancy under public bodies is the keynote of that policy, towards the success of which the assistance of public credit will be forthcoming. As regards taxation, Mr. BALFOUR has declared that agricul- tural land must be wholly free from MR. LLOYD GEOROE'S injurious Land Taxes, and that, if there be taxation of urban land, the proceeds should go to the servioe of the localities in which the land is situated. WITH the difficult question of Poor Law Reform the Unionists are anxious to deal in a thorough and efficient manner, while they are as much pledged as their opponents to initiate iijsurance against un- employment and invalidity, and may be trusted to propose measures which would in no way injure the legitimate interests of Trade Unions and Friendly Societies. Such is the great policy of Constitu- tional and Societies. Such is the great policy of Constitutional and Social Reform which any man who votes for the Unionist candIdate will support. One subject we have left to the last because it is the necessary basis for any reform of any kind. and indeed the. primary condition for the continued existence of our Nation and our Empire. Through- out the last five years, MR. BALFOUR has kept the Navy about the plane of the ordinary party warfare, and has uttered his warnings and protests in the most temperate language. Those warnings have been confirmed in words by the responsible Radical Ministers, as they have been rendered necessary by the action of those Ministers. But those Ministers have failed utterly to take the steps necessary to maintain the vital superiority of the British Navy. To-day a supreme effort—an effort which no Radi- cal Government will make-is necessary to place our Naval strength on a level which will ensure the safety of the people of this country and of the British Empire. The Unionist Party is pledged above all to spare no effort to regain such a Naval superiority as is consistent with the safety and honour of the Nation.
THE STATE AS LANDLORD (BY A COP.KESFONEENT.) Lord Carrington, it would appear, has approached the tenants of the Steeple Aston esate, which Mr. Long is 'about to sell, to ask if they would not like to become tenants of the tate. His invitation reminds one of that addressed by Mrs. Bond to her ducks- LJilly, dilly, come and be killed: For you must be stuffed and my customers filled. What is going to happen to the farmers of Steeple Aston if they give ear to Lord Carrington's blandishments? Fortunately, or rather unfortunate- ly, we are not without data for a reply to that Slueetion. This is not Lord Carrington's first at- tempt to confer on his countrymen the priceless booB of State Landlordism. He tried it last year in the case of the Thorney estate. As a preliminary lie required that the rent should be almost doubled that the Government might see a clear 4 per cent, return for its expenditure. We may, therefore, assume that Steeple Aston must return a clear 4 per cent. to the Crown. That is a pretty high rent. The private landlord who gets that percentage clear on his outlay would be- considered a hard man, even though he gave remis- sions and indulgences in bad times, which the public treasury cannot give. As the Government, e^en in the present low ebb of national credit, can probably borrow at 3 to 3* per cent., the margin 4 between that and the rent received is no. doubt represented, partly at least, by a sinking fund to cover the purchase of the land. So that the tenants of this hard landlord are not only to pay him a high rent, which will be exacted with the remorse- less punctuality of the income tax, but they are actually buying the land for him. It comes to this that their thrift, industry and self-denial are to have as their high reward the sense of an unselfish patriotism which presents their savings to the State, and then insists on paying interest on them for ever an dever. At last we begin to understand what Lord Crewe meant when he said that the Land Question would have to be settled on Social- istic lines. Now let us suppose that a Unionist Government were in power, armed with a Land Purchase Act such as it is pressing for at this moment. What would be the position of the Steeple Aston tenants? They would come to the Board of Agriculture, or the National Land Bank—whichever had the con- duct of Land Purchase-and borrow the money wherewith to purchase their farms. They would pay in interest and sinking fund 4 per cent.,—just what Land Nationalisation demands as rent. It would be rent, but, a terminable rent. In fifty or sixty years they would not be making a present of the land to the State, they or their families would have it themselves, rent free, their own, to do with as they please, to leave to whom they please, a .solid asset and. provision for their successors, and during the process of payment they would be free men. That is Ownership as opposed to State Tenancy.
COUNTY COUNCIL TBNANCIES NUTS TO CRACK. "I have always held that the State should prove itself a model landlord."—Lord Carrington, Castle Broughton, Aug. 9, 1906. So much for the pleasant theory; now for the unpleasant facts. They are taken from the last Report of the Board of Agriculture. -Lord Carrington's Department, Cd. 5180. 1. Farms leased by the County Council, and sub- let. The report gives figures in two cases, which are instructive. BROOMHILL FARM, NOTTS. 116 acres. Leased by the County Council at E150 per annum. or about 26s. an acre. Sublet to six tenants at i.208 15s. Od., about 36s. an acre. The report does not say that the Council has done anything for this. Therefore, this 10s. an acre goes in cost of manage- ment. WEST STOBSWOOD FARM, NORTHUMBER- LAND. 257 acres. Leased by the Council at JB116 rent, about 9s. an ,.SuHet \° tenants at a total rent of 6d" a,boufc 18s" an acre- Th Council has £ 231 14s. 6d., about 18s. an acre. The Council has borrow this money at 3i per cent., which would represent, say, £ 65 in interest. Rent and interest, i therefore, costs the Council JB181 a year. What becomes of the other £50, which represents some- thing over 4s. an acre? It goes in management charts,

THE GENERAL ELECTION Mr. W. J. Thorold, managing director of the Canadian Press Association, writes to the "Daily Mail" of Saturday last, describing how Mr. T. P. O'Connor canvassed Canada for the dollars. Ho says that Mr. O'Connor was regarded not only as a distinguished person from England, but also as a public entertainer. People attended his lectures in parties as they would an opera and knew nothing about Home Rule and cared less. They paid for entrance at the box office, and were also asked to contribute to the collection plate, often much to their indignation. Furthermore the harmless brand of Home Rule that Mr. O'Connor discoursed upon was flavoured to suit the Canadian taste and was an entirely different brand from that which Parnell advocated and which the real fillers of the Buffalo bag demand. The writer says this and much more to the same effect after having visited every town that Mr. O'Connor went to. The retirement of Sir Owen Philipps from the Liberal candidature of the Pembroke Boroughs places that seat in danger for the Liberals. Mr. Lort Philipps is tTie Unionist candidate, and is a strong one. A native of Haverfordwest, and a freeman of that borough, his selection is a most popular one. The last time Pembroke Boroughs was contested by a local Conservative candidate was in 1873, and the majority against him was only 50. Mr. Chamberlain has addressed to Mr. Balfour! a letter expressing the most cordial and complete agreement with all points of Mr. Balfour's Notting- ham speech, which was placed before the country in definite terms and with great lucidity the policy of the Unionist Party. His best wishes go with Mr. Balfour in his fight for freedom, union, and progress.t Addressing a meeting of the Conservative Asso- ciation of North-West Manchester on Monday night, Mr. Bonar Law said the issue put before the electors by Unionist candidates was whether the British nation was going to be master in its own house, or was our Government to be in the hands of a Cabinet whose policy was dictated by an Irish faction which openly boasted that it was subsi- dized by foreign gold. An election just before Christmas would injure; trade, and would disfran- chise thousands of people. This was done to suit the Irish faction. There was another important sitting of the House of Lords on Monday, when Lord Crewe moved tho second reading of the Parliament Bill. Lord Lans- downe, after criticizing the Bill, moved the ad- journment of the debate until Tuesday, and gave notice of several additional resolutions to be then included in the BilL-The House of Commons sat for only three hours, and passed, after a short debate and a division, Mr. Asquith's resoion as to the allocation of the time of the House during the present week. The "New York Times," a Democratic organ, ob- serves that the ending, as opposed to the mending, of the House of Lords is a distinctly Irish policy, and adds that Mr. Asquith has now definitely, yielded to the extreme Irish view. The journal continues: "The Lords are not to be allowed to embark on any plan of reform of their own House. The elections are to be rushed on the very eve of the sacred holiday season. The situa- tion is Irish, not English, in its main features. It is less like Westminster than Donnybrook fair." "I believe that the leaders of the Liberals are sincerely friendly to Home Rule; but sincere or not, WE HAVE THE POWER, AND WILL MAKE THEM TOE THE LINE. Our first- buginess is to clear away the block— the House of Lords. That accomplished, Home Rule is as good as accomplished."—Mr. J. Redmond, Sept. 27. Either England and the Empire is going to be governed by Ireland, or Ireland is going to govern herself.—Mr. T. P. O'Connor, in Canada The power to wreck the Government lies in the hands of Mr. John Redmond. Whether England shall remain a Free Trade country or adopt Tariff Reform depends upon Mr. Redmond.—Mr. T. P. O'Connor, at Victoria, B.C. The date of the election might have been specially designed to annoy farmers. It comes in the very middle of the local fat stock shows and fairs, which will suffer considerably. Evidence continues to accumulate that traders throughout the country regard with dismay the December general election. The editor of a trade i journal describes the election as an iniquitous dis- turber of business. Traders of all descriptions join _r --= in the outcry, and they are joined by mayors and other representative men. The manager of White- ley's, Westbourne-grove, believes that Christmas shopping will be damaged to the extent of 50 per cent. SIR EDWARD GREY. I say that to confine ourselves to a single- Chamber issue and to leave the policy of re- form of the Second Chamber—to leave all that ground unoccupied for the other side- WOULD RESULT FOR US, POLITICALLY SPEAKING, IX MV OPINION, IN DIS- ASTER, DEATH, AND DAMNATION.—March 14. LORD CREWE. There are more rea- sons than one why we cannot speaking of ourselves as a party- neglect this question of the reform of the House of Lords.—In the House of Lords, Nov. 21. MR. LLOYD GEORGE, at Mile End. The Tory Party are doing their very best to put life into the old horse. I would turn the poor old thing to grass and convert his old tram into a cucum- ber frame. ALL THESE SUGGESTIONS COME TOO LATE. MR. LLOYD GEORGE, at Mile End. Schemes for reform IWE CAN CONSIDER AT OUR LEISURE. The Lords have taken over thirty years to do it, but they are hurrying up just now. They are calling out excitedly, Don't shoot, and we'll come half-way down — (laughter) and we'll say, "Clear out, pleasd." FORMER DISSOLUTIONS. The dates of the dissolutions of Parliament sipce the beginning of the ninetenth century are as follows:— 1807 May 27 1880.Mar. 24 1818 June 10 1885.Nov. 18 1826 June 2 1886.June 26 1841.June 23 1892 June 28 1847.July 25 1895.July 8 1865 July 6 1900.Sept. 17 1868.Nov. 26 1906.Jan. 8 1874.Jan. 26 1910.Jan. 10 It will be seen that the latest period of the year on which a dissolution took place in the nine- teenth century was November 26th, in 1868, which allowed the general election to be completed before the pressure of the Christmas trade began.
