I wonder," he went on, musingly, as though the question fitted in with his train ot thought-"I wonder what will happen to Chamberlain's successor?" I looked up "Chamberlain's successor? You mean--" "Lloyd .George, ot course." There w�s a faiut hint of reproof in the "ot course" as though I had asked solemnly tor an explanation of the obvious. 1 looked down the table to where \Ir. Lloyd George himself sat. his face lit with that smile, so quick and sunny, yet so obscure, his light voice penetrating the hum of conversation with its "note of minuted seriousness and banter, his whole^afr, at once so alert and selt-polsed, full of a baffling fascination and disquiet. Yes, here w^as the unknown factor of the future, here potentiality of politics, s Led Pupils in Revolt Arid here, too, was Its romance. My mind tmned to that little villago between the moantains and the sea, where the fatherless boy learned the rudiments of knowledge in the village school and where; in leading his school-fellows in a revolt against the Catechism he gave the first hint or the metal that was in him. I saw the kindly old uncle, bootmaker and lo".aI preacher, worrying out the declensions and the irregular verbs of strange tongues in order to pave the path ot the boy to the law. I saw that boy at 21 a qualified solicitor, with his foot on the ladder, fightin.f the battle of the vUlage folk aguinst the tyranny of tho parson, who refused the dying wish >^f a: disseliter to be buried in his child's grave. "Bury him where he wished to be," sain young Lloyd George, strong in (.hvit and his high isbaring courage to help him, flashing into the great world of politics, risking his fortune and even his lite ini support of ^an unpopular cause, escaping from Birmingham town hall in the clotlies of a police- Learned," and declared that "anyone who has passed thraugh the regular gradations of the classical edutiatton and is not made a fool by it, may consider himself as having had a narrow escape." Certainly, tho man of learning, unless ho wears it liglitly, ftfl Macaulay said of Milton, and has assimilated it easily, starts with a heavy handicap when he comes down into the realm of affairs. He is under the dominion of authority and the awe ot the past. Jlr. Lloyd George has no such restraints. He Is like n runner ever stripped for the race. The pistol may go off when it likes; lie is always away from tho mark like an arrow. And it is not speed alone. When the hare is started he can twist and turn in ftlU career, for the hotter tUo chase the cooler he becomes. Lord Salisbury's "blazing indiscretions" were due to "his detachment from men and his remoteness from' his audience. They were the Indlscre tions of an Olympian, The indlscre^ tions of Lloyd George come from, his nearness to his hearers. He cannot resist the stimulus of the occasion. It works in him like wine. It floods him with the riot of high spirits and swift fancy, until he seems to be almost the voice of the collective emo tion. Has Passion, But Controlled And yet with all his sensitiveness to the external impulse, he is at hot torn the most subtle, the most reso lute, and the most wilful force in politics. He has passion, but it is controlled. It does not burn with the deep spiritual fire of Gladstone. It flashes and sparkles. It is an instrument that is UB^d, not an obession of the soul. You feel that it can be put aside as adroitly as it is taken up. And so with his humor. It coruscates; it does not warm all the fibers of his utterance. . It leaps out in light laughter. It is the humor of the quick mind rather than of the rich mind. "We will have home rule for Ireland and for England and for Scotland and for Wales," he said, addressing some Welsh farmers. "And for hell," interposed a deep, half-drunken voice. "Quite right. I like to hear a man stand "up for his own country." , Hefti -by No Anchor of Theory He is, indee^, the least doctrinaire; of men-as Utile doctrinaire as Mr. Chamberlain. No anchor of theory holds him, and he approaches life as if it were a new problem It is a, virgin country for him to fashion .and shape. He is unconscious of the roads and fences of Ills forefathers. His maxims are his own coined out of the metal qu&i'"ied from his direct contact with lite. He is-not modem. He is (noraentary. There is ho past-only the living present; iio teachers, only the facts, This absolute] fighting the battle Of V-has faded.

REGARDS AS VERYBLACK IE Liebehtels, which sunk in the harbor Thursday under .circumstances which led marine :men .to believe she. wai scuttled.- The -vessel is lying-in �0 feet of .water: . 1 The Hague, Feb. 2,-Holland is facing with anxiety a future which is generally regarded as black, although optimists'- are not lacking. The gravity o^the situation is realized everywhere as on the present showing Holland, whose economic life depends on overseas communication, is cut off from transatlantic traffic and sea connections with her colonies, which means that the food supply is gravely menaced. The danger zones of. which Great Britain and Germany have given notice overlap each other west ot the Danish line in such a way that ingress to tlie Atlantic seems to be effectually closed. The Holland-American line which ordered- back the steamship Nieuw A-msterdam after it had sailed for New York on Thursday, has Instructed its New York office to hold up all sailings to Holland. There are 13 Holland-American .steamers afloat and it Is hoped that' those on thp wafcto Holland will return on their own-Initiative to the nearest United Stages port on learning of Germany's intensified submarine campaign.

The ins,aranco market was paV-It was. the source of Mr. Chamber-1 ^ly^ed for a time. All the nowspap-� ranging over the government benches, saw one figure with concentrated and governed passion. It became a duel between him and Mr. Chamberlain. It was a duel between the broadsword and the rapief-between Saxon mind, direct aild crashing as the thunderbolt; and the Celtic mind, nimble and elusive as the lightning. 'The Swiftest Mind In Politics." "He was, indeed, the swiftest mind in politics. It is a mind that carries no impedimenta. IfazliU once wrote an essay on "The Ignorauco of the mind condenses the gases ^to the cou-crete. His intellectual activity i,i bewildering. It is as difficult to keep his name out ot the paper as It was to keep King Charles' head out of Mr. Dick's memorial.; lie is always "doing things"-and always big tUings. His eye lights on anachronism-like the Tjatent laws-and straightway he sets It on fire. He does not pore over books to discover the facts ab-5Ut docks; he goes to Antwerp, to Ham-imi:s.:^n<1 prrs. wnien he brought in his Merchants Shipping bill ho took a voyage to Spain and learned nil about ships. And his passion for uc-tlon erov/s with what it feeds on. He has yet his trumps to play. �With all his energy and daring ,the astonishing thing is that he has won the confidence of the mosi. sensitive class, the commercial class, without losing the confidence of the working class. Like Mr. Chamberlain, he isj essentially a middle-class statesman. He is no Socialist, for, as I have said, he has no theories, and Socialism Is all theory. "England," he said to me once, "is based on commerce. No party can live by an appeal to labor alone; it must carry the commercial class as well as labor with it." / "What can 1 do tor commerce?" was his first question at tho, board of trade. And he took up the Merchant Shipping bill. "What can 1 do for labor?" was his second question. And he incorporated in it those valuable provisions for improving the life of the seamen.

Customs collectors at all ports of tho United States, Hawaii and Porto Rico were instrueted by the treasury department today to exercise the utmost vigilance to see that neutrality regulations of the United States were enforced in their ports.
