T. P. O'CONNOR ON ENGLISH PARTIES (By T. P. O'Connor) London, Jan. 28.-The condition of things In the Tory party does not Improve as time goes on and we have in that party a situation as extraordinary that it baffles solution and suggests a condition unprecedented. And the first extraordinary phenomenon is that that party is still under the dead hand of a half dead leader. For years, as everybody knows, Jo. sepli Chamberlain has been paralyzed. He is scarcely able to' walk. His speech has become somewhat uncertain and yet the. brain remains clear, the will unsubdued and the, keen and eager interest which, he always took in politics remains, as keen and eager as ever. He now and then sees a few political friends, especially those on whose friendship and loyalty he can always count and he discusses the issue of the moment with them, with halting-tongue and an occasional in ability to find or to pronounce a word-when his faithful wife cOfhes to "his assistance with the word he'misses, and undoubtedly he must read the newspapers pretty steadily. Was for Knitting Dominions He was the author of the fateful and disastrous new department of the Tory party in taking up again the jpol icy of a protectionist tariff.! Prom the first he made the knitting closer together of the dominions and the mother country the 'chief jotgument and purpose of this pbUcy7~This fed him to the demand that dominions and especially Canada, should get a material inducement to keep them, in full sympathy and union with' the mother country. This again led ifre sistlbly to taxes on food, for wheat, is-the great product of Canada;^ and inducement to Canada, therefore, had to take the shape of a tax-against the wheat of other countries; In. other words, a food tax. ' ,'Y Joseph Chamberlain ;W,a^tessentiaily a/business man, for he made a*large fortune at an early period o'f-his life but he was also more of a politician than a business man, and more of a dreamer than either. And it was this dream of an empire 'world-wide-, gigantic and costly, united by ties of interest as well as' sentiment, that lay behind his proposal of-a preferential tariff. -v iT Has Made Tories' Difficulty This is the reason why fieVhas stuck so obstinately to the food taxes and his obstinate adherence to, this plan has created most of the difficulty-in which the Tories now, find- themselves First, there is- inside; .the;-Tory-party a small but resolute group' "Who are fanatical Chamberlainites. He is the one true prdphet and So.Song as hie' \s on.' ear'thMhey. will Ires^sl:' abandORlpg the..policy: .to which he' adheres;,: And some of these ardent Chamberlainites are bound to him by. other ties, they were put into constituencies either > in Birmingham or Its environment as Chamberlainites, and if theyabandon Chamberlain they might easily lose thvHr constituencies. r' �' 1 And there is this further and even more powerful obstacle' for the abandonment of the food' taxes::, Austen Chamberlain, Joseph's son, is still>aj considerable power in the Tory party' Austen resembles, his remarkable fa-therMn many ways", and yet in others there is a profound; difference between them. The son ias a softer temperament than that of the father. The long, hatchet, pallid, frigid; steellike face of the father is transformed -probably from the gentleness of We mother's side-Into a handsomer,' a more refined and a softer outline of. feature and of expression, .intellectually, too, and in force of character there is a great difference.  In some respects Joseph Cham-bet lain was one of the greatest debaters of his time. He had a itpngue^o'f-flre and of venom, and he-had:'6nly-to'be on his feet a few. seconds till he had transformed the whole atmosphere of the House of. Commons and created out of a. listless assembly a, mob of howling and excited men. V MATHBEUS SYft UP OF TAS* / & COO- I LIVER OIL.

Son is a "Forced Plant" Austen has no such power, but he has some power. He had been in the House of Commons from an early age, he haB stuck to it with great persistence, he is what may be called a forced plant. He is fluent, he knows the tricks of the trade, he can use the commonplaces of party rhetoric and though all these things are quite consistent with intellectual shallowness -and I think he is intellectually shallow-they are also consistent with an effective part in the daily battledore and shuttlecock of warfare in a popular chamber. Austen went near getting the leadership and indeed he would have got it if Walter Long had not allied to himself the squires and the churchmen and so compelled the choice of Bonar Law as a compromise between him and Austen Chamberlain. All the same, though he was disappointed In getting the ftrst place, Austen remains one of the leaders and he has to be consulted, and therefore he remains as one of the defenses of the taxes on food. Food Taxers Party Minority Thus, then, we have this extraordinary situation-the food taxers are now undoubtedly a minority of the Tory party. The Tory papers which have been flinging mud at each other with all the characteristic ferocity of civil war have been making elaborate calculations, as to the comparative strength of the food taxers and the freeholders, and the Times voicing the opinion of Lord Northcliffe and served by an especially able lobby correspondent in the House of Commons, calculates that at most the food taxers amount to 17 and the Tory party approaches 300 in its entire strength. These 17 are holding the rest of the party in bondage, which, as I have said is almost incredible, and yet it is true. . The, Chamberlain influence, as I have described, is one of the chief explanations of this extraordinary state of affairs, but there are other causes and one of these is. the leadership of Bonar Law. Bonar Law is not a success, or to put it perhaps more fairly, conditions have.made his position impossible, as impossible to him as it was to the nimbler, broader and more cultivated mind of Arthur Balfour, but on the other hand, Bonar Law holds, and. it is always difficult to j get rid of a leader, especially in this case when you have no alternative,. Change Would Make Upheaval  \ There is no alternative at the moment which would not make the position of the- Tories even more impos-. sible.

Then he rode away on a stolen bicycle. When arrested he denied everything, but the police found the marks, of eighteen of his teeth, including one which was broken exactly reproduced in a lump of-but; ter in to which he had probably  bitten by mistake in the dark. He still protested his innocence, asserting that he did not like butter, but 'when the magistrate sent for some butter-and. made the prisoner bite Into it the im� print left by his irregular teeth was found to' be identical with the impression made in the laTde'r at Mont-rieul.
