Mr. Asquith's pronouncement by insurance, at Albert Hall on Friday night is awaited with the keenest interest. Mr. BaUour, although still confined to the house with a bad cold, comes out at the same time with an elec- tion manifesto. A curious feature of the campaign is the active part of peers. They have hitherto been ex- pected to retire to their spacious do- mains when the call of battle was 'sounded. In this election they will be in the thick of the fight.

The election managers are fixing up the epithets of Mr. Churchill and Mr. Lloyd- George against the peers as they crrow more and more lurid.
