The other possibility of the situa- tion Is a nearby dissolution of par- liament. Sir Thomas Roe, the veteran Lib- referendum 'cral nicnihcr, is ready to famous speech the'Albert Hall, just before the last general election was enough to puzzle a bigger intel- lect than that of the present leader of the Unionist party in the. house o< commons. In these circumstances he made a hold course by announcing that if the Unionists returned to power they would call an imperial conference to settle (lie whole ques- tion of provincial trading, He marie this promise because he was instruct- ed to do so by the controllers of the machine, all of whom are known to he ia closest touch with ,Ios. Cham- berlain, the man who wrecked the Unionist party years ago. Tt is Jos. Chamberlain who is tc blame for splitting the party today. Mr. Chamberlain lias maintained foi a decade pjfsfc that the keystone of the tariff reform is a .rich imperial preference and if Great Britain wants to give preference to her col- onies she must put a tax on foreign grown corn. .Air. Chamberlain was right, but tiic Times, which is one of the lead- ers of the agitation against Mr. Bon- ar Law's proposition is endeavoring to prove that; imperial. preference does not necessarily mean tlie luxa- tion of food. .Such an argument is absurd because preference without, food taxes means ;i system of taxes on the raw materials of industry. Without, food (axes, as the Liberal newspapers arc pointing out, Great. Britain cannot give any effective pre- ference to Canada, unless timber and wood pulp arc fayed and without food taxes. Great Britain cannot give preference to Australia unless wool is taxed. Great Britain imports virtura'.ly nothing from the Dominion save food and raw materials and. as Mr. Cliani- bcrljiin .said long iiiro, food taxes are !'essential to any scheme for imperial lire fc re i ice. What lhc upshot of Lhc situation will he is uncertain, hut there are tit li-ast two possibilities, each of which might, have a startling influ- ence, on the future course of political events in this country. Tlie first of I these is the resignation of Mr. Hon- Law, jusL at .1 time when he had 'quite, a fair prospect of making a record in BriMsh politics by brcom- 1 ing primp minister without ever hav- lifld cabinet, rank. Mr. Honsr I L.'iw is a lighting innn, but his friends believe that unless the party rrrniiiincnil.s his leadership will follow Mr. Halionv into retirement, [in which case it ii pructiciiliy ix-i- j from th, ami Raymond As- son, has been selected as the party candidate to succeed him. No labor candidature is threatened and a bye- election in -January is considered likely. In such a contingency, and if Haymond Astjuith wins, as the Liberals now anticipate, the govern-! ment will, it is.believed, appeal to tho country. It is expected the Lords will draw out on the second residing all three of the political measures which had occupied the Commons I throughout the year. step may he considered certain with regard to the home rule bill and Welch Church j bill, hut is only a contingency re- j spectinsr this franchise hill, which will possibly be passed on second reading and discussed in detail in committee, if, however, these threes bills are either killed or hung up, ministers will he tempted promptly to dissolve and to secure if possible direct mandate from the constitu- encies in favor nf them. That is the more likely because of the present expeditions at the treasury that the existing trade..boom will last sullicicntly Lo Lloyd George, as chancellor of the sham, pointed-out that the individual States were unable to cope with tliq situation, jjaiiti asked the to take action-. The Stute officials state that tlie alleged agreements between the New Ha'vcn and the Grand TrunU roads meant the abandonment of projects for the extension of the Grand Trunk through territory now monopoliz- ed by the New Haven. In Its investigation during the past month, tlie Grand Jury examined offi- cers of both roads and their subsidiar- ies, and also experts representing New England States and cities most inter- ested.
