The editorial columns of the morning papers'deyot- cd to the insurgent cause prove the authority Mr. Haifour 'still holds over the bulk of his party and his declar- ed determination to stand or fall with Lansdowne is not without .''ef- fect. The Standard has completely recanted. It now declares .that it is" better to follow Mr. Balfour in his v possibly erroneous strategy than to risk the breaking up of the party.- The Morning Post while maintaining the insurgent view, repudiates .the of any disloyalty to the leader- ship of Mr. Haifour. and Lord downe. It denies there is any divi- sion in the party. -.Oflicial intimation also comes from the organizers of the, Salisbury, ban- quet, that it is in no sense intended as a demonstration'against the party leaders. Lord Roscbcry'in at.lons. letter, to the .Times in support of Lord Lansdowne, describes the pol- icy ot the insurgent peers as a for- lorn hope which can only bring fur- ther-humiliation nnd impotency upon tlie House of Lords. He they can achieve nothing but.the cre- ation of a number of peers and adds, "Let the Lords of' the forlorn hope protest as strongly as they can. That is one of the few remaining privileg- es left to the peers. Let them resolve when the swing of the pendulum plac- es them in power again to construct a strong and efficient second chamber, but not by any mistaken idea of courage, bring down upon their country their party and them- selves even greater calamities than they have already to endure." The Times says there Is strong, though silent body of opinion in both houses in favor of the Balfour-Lans- downe policy.
