IF YOU TAKE AWAY OUR LOW PRICES YOU'VE GOT A REGULAR DEPARTMENT STORE Date back to Wellington British cabinet scandals historical By STANLEY JOHNSON Associated Press Writer Ever since the Duke of Wellington, victor at Waterloo and later prime minister, told the top London call girl of his day to "publish and be dam- the British cabinet has provided an avid public with some of its spicier sex scan- dals. Those who profess to be shocked by the goings-on in- volving Lords Lambton and peers who re- signed from the government after being linked to call have lived in the days when politicians were really swingers and the public loved them for it. Hariette Wilson, the leading century word for call in her head- line-making story of the Iron Duke's return from a vic- torious campaign in Spain. According to no one has ever denied it- Wellington, fresh from battle, pounded on her door after midnight while she was up- stairs with the Duke of Ar- gyle. Argyle. she said, put on one of her dressing gowns and night caps and went to the window. A slanging match started between the two dukes which ended with Wellington striding away shouting "the devil." From Hariett's point of view, it all ended happily as Argyle "swore that, this night at least, he would be a match for the mighty Wellington." Another lover was Lord By- ron, the poet, whose best- known affair was with Lady Caroline Lamb, wife of the man who became Lord Mel- bourne, prime minister of England and beloved mentor of the young Queen Victoria. Melbourne also made sex headlines. His trouble began with wtat, from all evidence, was a platonic relationship with Caroline Norton. Her jealous, politically frustrated husband, George, did not take this atti- tude and in April, 1836, charged the prime minister with "criminal connection" with his wife. It is not every day that a prime minister is accused of adultery-' with one of the greatest beauties of the time. While printing every gamey rumor they could find, the newspapers accompanied these reports with what Lord David Cecil has called "pious reflections on the deplorable prevalence of vice in high places." King William IV said "no" when asked if Melbourne should resign. Wellington said he would refuse to serve in any cabinet formed as the re- sult of such a resignation. Amidst intense public agita- tion, came the day of the trial. Couriers, booted and spurred, waited to rush the verdict to every important capital in Europe. Thousands of curious milled about out- side. EASILY ACQUITTED The proceedings lasted 13 hours and the case ended at midnight with the jury return- Power firm seeks hike HELENA, Mont. (AP) The Montana Power Co., claiming sharp increases in its cost of buying natural gas, applied to the state this week for author- ity to increase its rates on the fuel. The company said the pro- posed new rate structure would raise the average Montana pow- er residential customer's gas bill by about 6V4 per cent a month while the increase to in- dustrial-contract c u s t o mers would range between 18 and 20 per cent. "I would point out that Mon- tana Power has no reasonable choice but to buy Canadian gas, and we don't set the said George O'Connor, presi- dent of Montana Power. He noted that the company pur- chases 60 per cent of its gas from Canada. Ha said "we must either pay the Canadian price or face a severe natural gas shortage." Last September, the Montana Public Service Commission au- thorized Montana Power to in- crease natural gas rates by an average of 19 per cent. ing t verdict of not guilty without leaving the box. There was thunderous ap- plause in the court and cheers in the House of Commons. The next criminal-collection" case involved Melbourne's brother-in-law, another minister, Lord Palmerston. Palmerston referral to as "Lord Cupid" by The Times (of and there were frequent references to his affairs with the Countess of Jersey and Princess Lie- ven, wife of the Russian am- bassador. It was June, 16, 1863, when Palmerston was 79 and Brit- ain's most popular politician of the age, that an Irish jour- nalist namsd O'Kane brought suit charging the noble lord had committed adultery with his wife. Palmerston's rival, Ben- jamin Disraeli, commented: "It will make Palrnerstoo more popular than ever." Disraeli was right. TALK OF THE TOWN The Earl of Clarendon wrote Lord Cowley, ambassa- dor to France, that "in town and country nothing else was talked of for days." Finally, in October, Mrs. O'Kane claimed she had never been legally married to the man who brought the di- vorce action. Lord Palm- erston submitted an affidavit saying the suit had been filed for "motives of extortion" and it was dismissed. There were cheers in every gin palace in London.
