The rival leaders were loudly cheer- ed as. they entered _ the room, and Mr. Ualfour received an oration as he rose to present'the motion.

He contended that the question of home rule bad not ever been hciorc the country through- out the controversy. Then- was not the slightest justifi- cation for the creating of peers to enable the government to carry it through liolh houses without refer- ence to the people. It was contrary to all opinions of constitutional leg- islative chambers to put both cham- bers in the bands of the executive to manipulate as they liked and it was a wholly constitutional method of dealing with deadlocks for a prime minister to advise the King to pack (lie upper house with hired voters.
