LANSDOWNEON THE BUDGET Debate In House Of Lords- Proposed Action Defended -BriUiant Gathering Ot Lords and Ladies London, Eng., Nov. House of Lords presented today a, scene of exceptional brilliancy and animation, when the Marquis of Lansdowne opened the debate on his motion, which in effect is to kill the budget passed by the House of Commons. The press of Unionist peers were so great that they overflowed on to the Liberal benches, swamping the hand- ful of nobles who support the'govern- ment. The peeresses were crushed in their gallery while at the doors they stood in clusters striving to get a'glimpse of the house. For two hours before the galleries were open- ed duchesses, marchionesses and other select persons waited patiently in line "and when admission was gained they made an undignified scramble for seats in which dresses were torn and elaborate hats knocked off.

Two Grave Announcements The Portugal minister, the Marquis of Several, sat beside the king point- ing out notable English peers, but Manuel showed more interest when Several singled out notable peeresses for his attention. The debate which will last for three days, was dull but contained two announcements of the gravest importance. Lord Lansdowne quoted precedent to show that al- though the House of Lords cannot amend a fin-ance bill it has full right to discuss it and throw it out so wills. he said, "the pres- ent bill has tacked onto it legislation such as land taxation and increased license duties; which the House of Lords has already rejected, and which has been placed in the bill with a view to ousting the Lords from their legitimate opportunity of dealing with these measures. No self respecting man around the chamber would toler- ate such treatment. What is to prevent home rule from being intro- duced in the finance bill? There Is no limit to such abuses. The "Union- ists oppose because they are crushing in their severity. The same applies to land taxes. The people, not hav- ing been consulted, have a clear duty not to decree the final extinction of the bill, but to insist that before it becomes a law, the country shall be allowed an expression of opinion. "The Lords have carefully consid- ered the consequences of the rejec- tion of the bill, and are ready to face them."

A i'riend told me to try Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills, and before the first box was taken I was almost well, and the second box com- pleted the cure. I have advised many others to try them, and they have all been cured of the same trouble. I have offered to pay" for a box for anybody they do not cure." Milbum's Heart and Nerve Pills are a specific for all diseases or disorders arising from the heart or nerve system. They make the weak heart strong and tbe shaky nerves firm by imparting a strengthening and restorative influence to every organ. and tissue of the body and curing -palpi- tation of the heart, dizziness, sleepless- ness, ansmia, twitching of the muscles, sensation of pins and general 'debility, lack of vitality, etc. Price, 50 cents box or 3 boxes for at all dealers, or mailed direct on receipt of price by 'The T Miiburn Co., Limited, Toronto, Ont. Lord A Reply Tordeurn replied: "There is nothing in the "bill foreign to' finance with which the House of Commons has not a perfect right to deal. The attempt of the Lords to interfere in the beginning of a system which would lead to legislative revolution. What is embodied in the bill is not new either in the United States or Germany and was approved notN only by the present but the late House of who were not entitled to do so should gain admittance to-the house. Second Reading Moved Their lordships were called to order at 4.45 p.m. The house was crowded. The Earl of Crewe, the Liberal leader in the House of Lords, arose and mov- ed the second reading of the budget. Lord Lansdowne's Speech Lord Lansdowne, the leader of the Opposition, was loudly, cheered when he arose to move his amendment. In his speech he acknowledged that jhis amendment was a grave and per- 'haps unprecedented proposal, but His Lordship contended, the preamble of the bill showed that it required the consent of the House of Lords before it became a law. That, he insisted, involved the right of rejection. Con- tinuing, Lord Lanedowne said the Commons had pushed their claims for years and by 1904 the finance bill had become a "hodge podge" of tax- ing legislation. The result was that the Lords had now been driven back on the only remedy, rejection of the budget. Lord Spencer said in the House of Lords in 1904, said tbe marquis: "We have the right to throw out the finance bill if we will." Precedents for Lords In 1907-08 the Lords threw out the Land Valuation Bill but they were now told that they were precluded from rejecting precisely similar pro- posals. The same said about the Licensing Bill in 1908 which the Lords rejected, but they were now told they must not reject a more crushingly severe project Lord Lans- downe reminded the house that Crom well, who had been invoked on behalf of the budget, spoke of the work of the House of Commons as most hor- rible and arbitrary. Lord Lansdowne went on to say that while the right Hon. Alexander Ure, Lord Advocate for Scotland, had admitted that there were entitled to as much favor as an investor in American stocks but this investor escaped. Land taxes would change the whole face of tbe country and Lord Lansdowne contended that legislation along this line should be simple and easy. The present bill, he said, descended to the lowest depths of obscurity. Some people were taxed not only once or twice, but three or four times for the same piece of pro- perty. The bill according to Lord Lansdowne would render every tran- saction in land more complicated and more, onerous, and in this way the opening up of the land will be retard- ed and made more difficult. The bill had so shocked confidence that the building trade was in a state of stag- nation. Lord Lansdowne said he objected to the taxes because they were unproductive. There were taxes on the people on what they had not got. They singled out oce class. They fettered land transactions and were based on the socialistic principles on which the government had acted but had not the courage to avow. Lord Lansdowne ridiculed the mo- tion that the rejection of the bill would provoke irreparable chaos. The real chaos, he said, would come from its passage, not its rejection. Result of Rejection In regard to the consequences to their lordships of the rejection of the bill by the house, the Marquis of Lans downe said the struggle had to come. j The country would not think the i worse, but better, of the House if the peers showed the courage of their opinions. Their Lordships, be said, would lose if at this moment they failed to protect those who were look- ing to them for protection of their constitutional rights. Final judgment on the bill was not proposed in his amendment. This was relegated to the opinion of the country. Commons." the Lord High Chancellor, many peers addressed the house but interest waned. The Afternoon Debate The peers smarmed to the House of Lords early this afternoon in a way that.had not been seen since the day they came to Gladstone's home rule bill of 1888. Many who came this afternoon had never before taken their seats in the house. The police and the officers were compelled to ex- ercise the most careful scrutiny to these, to the unknown peers lest any more taxation in new this methods of raising bill than had been the case for fifty years, the Liberal premier, Mr. Asquith, had denounced a high income tax in time of peace. Death duties, if moderate, Lord Lans- downe said, might be less objection- able. The government, however, was raising the income tax and the death duties at the same time, and licens- ing proposals were imposed on- an industry which already yielded one- third of the revenues. The Land Tax Coming down to the land tax, the Opposition leader said, he took subject with bated breath because so many members of the house were land owners. However, he insisted that give them experience and good judgment in voting. He declared that land owners who were content with a moderate return on their holdings Modern Revolutionists Change Their Have Full "Control Spokane, Wash., Nov. of the Industrial Workers of the world, directing the speech1' movement in Spokane, are bending every e5ort to involve the govern- ment in complications withi foreign nations as a result of the threatened deportation of aliens under the immi- gration laws of the United States. Vincent St. John, counsel for the un- ion, has instructed the officials to in- sist upon the return to" Spokane of. all persons cited for deportation, and it is given out that this plan will be followed. The ranks of the "modern revolu- as the" champions of free speech call themselves, arc sadly de- pleted, following the wholesale ar- rests during the.last ten days, and a call has been issued for recruits. They have also enlisted several hundred women irom various parts of tlie Northwest and elsewhere, who say they' are "ready to go to jail to do their share of the work, so far large- ly done by men.." The "hunger self-imposed by prisoners at the city hall arid the jail in the Franklin school has been broken. This is a change of tactics by the revolutionists, who believe they have the best of the argument. Mayor Pratt and Chief of Police Sul- livan are equally emphatic in their claims, declaring also that the city ordinance, charging curbstone ora- tors with disorderly conduct, will be enforced in the future as in the past. Governor Hay, who stopped in Spo kan-e on the way from Faribault, Minn., to the state capital, announc- ed, after looking over the situation with Secretary of State Howell, that there is no need for 'the presence of the state militia, as the police have the matter well in hand and no out- break is feared. 6HOWIN6 LOCATION OF OBEAKL HARBOR" 5iOg 30 40 CANADIAN RAILWAY Annual Eastern r Canadian Excursions Daily During December Toronto and points west in Ontario Montreal and points west in Quebec, also in Ontario east of Pembroke.
