TORONTO. 133 BELGIAN PRINCE .Affronts a Baroness Liked by King to People -Brussels, Belgium, Nov. 25-Prince 'Albert, who in the nature of things will succeed Leopold II. as King of the Belgians, has made himself ex- tremely popular by his latest public .action. A subscription list has been opened personal patronage to raise money to provide a schoolship on which orphan boys may be trained to be sailors. Baroness Vaughan, the plebian in- Iinmcdiately upon seeing her name among the others Prince Albert dir- ected the treasurer of the fund to send the Baroness's subscription back to her and to print a revised list of subscribers with her name omitted. Now people arc wondering how the spiteful Baroness will take revenge, for it is deemed certain-that she will not fail to resent this deliberate pub- lic insult. The Prince is the more warmly com mended for his course in this affair', because -everybody realizes that he has risked his share of Leopold's mil- lions. When the future king drove through the streets after he had snubb cd the Baroness, he was cheered at LORD ROSEBERY GIVES WARNING To House of Lords Against Rejecting The Speech London, Nov.

He-- warned the lords of the grave risks they were running if they adopted the Lord Lansdowne resolution to reject the budget. Interest in today's debate was in- tense. There was not enough room to'seat all the peers attending, and the public galleries were crowded. The Duchess of Connaught headed a long list of foremost peeresses, many of whom were compelled to stand throughout the session. Lord Salisbury resumed _the debate with a speech supporting Lord Lans- downe's resolution, after the Arch- bishop of Canterbury had said that the bishops would stand aside from the discussion, as the debate was strictly of a party character. The Awful Gravity Lord Rosebery followed in a long 1832." Lord Rosebery admitted that by the letter of law, the house of lords was competent to reject finance bills, and since the reform of 1832 it was not possible that the commons should send up a budget which the house of lords should go to the length of re- armaments was hurrying toward bank ruptcy. Expressing regret that he not support the, resolution, I Lord Rosebery resumed his seat, hav- i ing spoken for fifty minutes. His 'picturesque and-glowing eloquence produced a tremendous effect, leaving s hearers somewhat bewildered. The Anti-Climax There was an immediate" exodus of peers to discuss the situation in the lobbies, and although the...debate continued, until midnight, the. rest of the speeches took rather the form of an anti-climax. Lord Milner spoke of the abnormal manner in which the budget was driving capital out of the country. He declared that all pro- posed new taxes were bad and unnec- essary.'

He looked with much ap'pre- hension to the result of an appeal to the country mixed up with such other issues as would be raised, j "I cannot speak of he i said. "The house of lords has lived I on menaces ever since I can remem- bcr, and it is still thriving. But the now used are used by men bent on having a single chamber. Their efforts are revolutionary in essence, in not in fact. A Form of Referendum Dealing with the question of the reform of r.'ie house of lords, which Long Rosebery has long advocated, he expressed the conviction that no final adjustment of the differences be- tween the two houses could ever be arrived at without some form of re- ferendum. He denounced the budget in the strongest terms, and said that one maxim burned into them by better experience was that there could be no taxation without representation. "Disregard for that he said, "lost us the United States of America, and we are not likely to offend against it again." Lord Rosebery contended that the budget taxed the lords freely and abundantly without their having a I FORD STREET OPPOSITE FIRE HALL I the expediency of Lord Lansdowne's" course, and there is almost certain to be a large number of abstentions when the resolution comes to a vote. Tue prolongation of the debate in the house of lords into next week is because there is no machinery to bring a discussion in this chamber to a close, all the peers expressing a desire to speak having a. full right to do so. It was announced tonight that the house of commons would ad- journ tomorrow until December 1, when Mr. Asquith. the prime minister will make an important statement explaining the policy of the govern- ment in view of the rejection of the budget. Nothing has been learned as to what the ministers decided at today's council, beyond the decision to call a party meeting. It Will Hove No Effect London, Nov. the tone of editorials in London morning pa- pers. Lord Rosebery's remarkable oration, which from a rhetorical view standpoint is universally lauded, prob- ably will have slight effect on the attitude of the peers.
