Not for a long time have we read anything the tone-of which was so displeasing anjtl the contents so uhpolitic. Perhaps it is to the point to recall that all parties, including the Conservatives in November, 1008, recommended somewhat more reserve in that quarter. .In times when, there is talk of peace, words from, an authoritative source should be care-^ fully weighed, A. great part of ""the people whom we represent do not share the views uttered in that speech but, on the other hand, strongly reffuta. them."
