I Mr President and Gentlemen:
li in hardly necessary, ln an assem-

Ills* work of the patron saint of

- I'srii In the decline of thc fourth
iturj and, although there has been
iii'i with regard to his birthplace,
believed that his parents lived In
lown of Kllpalrlck, at the mouth of
lllver Clyde. In his 16th year he
s carried into captivity by barbarl
is- and laken to Ireland, where he was
bilged 'is keep caitle on the mountains

Villi'- hi- lived In this suffering condi
<ni liisi heart was touched by faith

itlirlght to serve strangers, ln this
���position he passed Into Ireland a
sird lime, to preach the gospel where
[Is- worships of idols generally reigned
le devoted himself to the sulvatlon ol
hese barbarians, to suffer Imprison

her. We are proud of her sons who
were ever foremost In advancing the Interests of the land of their adoption.
VVe are proud of her daughters, fair as
IMH and pure as the oci.au foam that
whitens her rocky shores. I will conclude with the words of a modem
writer: "Every mountain uud hill has
lti; treasured name, every river some
solemn title, and every lake and valley
Its honored register; and till the moun-
taltiB are worn out, and the rivers forget to flow, till the clouds are weary of
resplendent springs, and the springs
forget to gush, and the rills to Blng,
shall the name of St. Patrick be kept

Inscribed on the book of national re
raembrance."

dwelt on the great debt that Canada
owes to the IrlBh emigrants whose hope

OfflUiATM AVERTED
Fire In Frame Building on Baker Street
Confined and Subdued by Fire
Chiefs  Promptness.
At 4:30 this morning the lire depart,
ment wus called out to a tire In the
two-story wooden building on Baker
street occupied by Taylor & McQuarrle.
The tire was discovered by Sergeant
Pitchford aud the alarm was promptly
turned In from Hox 24, at the corner
of Ward and Haker streets. It was ap
parent tto the flremen, on ieaving the
hall, that a test ot their promptness
snd efficiency would be made from the
dense volumes or smoke rolling over
the neighboring buildings. Fortunately
this -police officer prevented outsiders
trom breaking Into the building until
the flremen arrived, thereby confining
the tire within the premises.
Driver Murphy made an excellent run
to the nearest hydrant and was followed In quick time by Fred Hell, with
the combined truck and hose wagon. A
line or hose was laid rrom the cornel
of Baker and Ward streets and the
chemcal hoBe carried Into the store.
The lire was then breaking through and
falling from the upper story to the
ground floor. Fireman Hoy Sharp kpel
lbe (ire from spreading below while W.
A Grelg and W. Hipperson attacked
the lire on the upper floor with a
stream from the line attached to the
hydrant. Assistant Chief Jeffs, aided
by W. Pearcy, W. Davison and E Lan-
Chester ascended to the roof with a line
connected from the hydrant at the cor
tier ot Vernon and Ward streets, ln tho
nn amine- a third line ot hose was attached lo the hydrant at the corner ol
Uaker and Josephine streets. Considering the large number of high wooden
buildings In the neighborhood, Chief
DeaBy prepured to meet nny emergency.
The chemical engine was doing excel
lenl work and the one stream Inside
lhe building wub directed towards the
rtar of the building, thereby avoiding
damage to the large stock of cloth in
the front portion of the store. Within
20 minutes after receiving the alnrns
lhe flro was suppressed without duinag
lug more than the workroom on the up
per story. Although the fire depart
ment caused little If any damage In the
front portion of the store the fire and
water destroyed a large quantity ol
clothing In the two workrooms. How the
lire originated Is a mystery. An em
ployee of the firm visited thc premises
at 11 o'clock last nlghl and considered
everything sate. The chimneys nnd
stovepipes were placed ln good ordei
u short time nun. ln a box on the uppei
Poor a quantity oi mutches were fotlnd
this morning, and It Ib supposed thai
mice gnawing them caused the lire, lis
lhe box wiih the charred matches u
quantity of paper ami cloth was found
The building Is not damaged to any
great extent. The slock carried Is
vulued nt $5,000 and the insurance car
ried $2,000. lt Is estimated that the
losses will not exceed $1,000, although
no definite total of the damage done
will be known until tire adjusters com
plete their work. Within the past three
months fires occurred In Ihree buildings
in the Immediate neighborhood of
Haker and Ward streets ansl were ex
tlneulshed with little loss. As a mark
of appreciation, Taylor & McQuarrle en
tcrtalned the firemen at breakfast this
morning after the arduous and success
ful work In saving the city irom a con
flagratlon.
CHANGE DF FRONT
Preference Is Shelved for
Six Years
LOYALTY IS LUKE-WARM
Debates oa Mutual Trade Concessions
Within the Empire Distasteful
to the Government.
Ottawa, March 19.���For a whole day
tho house dehated a resolution declaring that the Uritftih tariff preference
bhould be allowed only on goods Imported through Canadian porta. Tbe
motion was amended by the premier
who added Uio proviso that the policy
shoud not go Into effect until authorized
by order-in-councll. The date mentioned
by Sir Wilfrid Laurler was 1913, six
years from now when the transcontinental shall bo finished. This shelves
the questioL ti .be life of the present
and tbe nex. ���      .anient.
Three yea .; , �� at] tbe ministers sup.
ported the n.i. . ..ion in the same terms
as the one which ls now headed off
with this dilatory amendment. They
have modified their views since then
or have been influenced. But the tariff
of this year showB a more rapid change
of opinion on the question. As introduced in November the tariff gave no
prefW-s&Ot to Canadian ports. As Mr.
Fielding amended the bill on February
Hth it was provided lhat preference
should be allowed only on raw sugar
Imported when it came "by ship to a
port in Canada from a British country."
On March 15th Mr. Fielding abandoned
thc Canadian port restriction and
amended the clause so that the preference woud be allowed on sugar brought
in by foreign [ports. It will be Been
that the ministerial mind ls changing
with startling rapidity.
Another futile attempt has been made
by the commitlee on privileges and
elections to find out whether Mr. Hyman has resigned hia seat. The effort
has failed. Mr. Ouffleld of London, who
has been ln telegraphic communication
with Mr. Hyman, was summoned to appear on Thursday and tell what he
knew about the minister's Instructions
to him to get Mr. Jarvis and Mr. Beale
to sign the second .resignation as witnesses. Mr. Dufneld did not come and
sent no reason for his absence. So the
committee concluded to wait another
week and get the sheriff to look for
the witnesses. As Mr. Duffleld confessed In the Toronto police court that
he paid a former Conservative worer
$40 out of his own pocket to cut down
the Conservative vote by forty at his
polling place, it is evident that be is
much Interested in Mr. Hyman's success at the polls. Since Mr. Hyman
selected this gentleman to prepare the
ground for the next campaign we are
free to judge for ourselves what kind
of a campaign Mr. Hyman wants.
The magnificant triumph of the Roblin government in the Manitoba election
gave great pleasure to the Conservatives in parliament. It is known that
thc Laurier administration was using
all the influence it could command to
crush out provincial administration.
Most of the government supporters
from that province left the house of
commons Borne time ago to take a hand
in the campaign. They will be back
next week sadder or wiser.
On Friday the flag of parliament
building was at half mast. In the Senate announcement was made of the
death of Senator Casgraln of Windsor.
a greatly esteemed member of the upper chamber and da loyal Conservative.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Mr. Borden
at the same time paid their tribute to
the late Mr. Edward Cochrane, Conservative representative of Kast Northumberland, one of the senior members of
the commons. He was described as an
Impulsive, warm hearted man of sterling character, a ready and witty debater with a clear intellect and a great
fund of knowledge. t
Georgia Town  in  Flames.
Augusta, Ga., March 19.���At 3:35 this
morning Are broke out ln the building
occupied by the Augusta Chronicle and
thc Western Union Telegraph Co. By
6 a. m. the building was completely destroyed and the Are was spreading to
adjacent buildings, among which is the
Chelsea hotel.
The fire started at 3:30 o'clock this
morning. The office of the Augusta
Chronicle was ruined and the main office of thc Western Union Telegraph
Company and the union city ticket offlce were destroyed. Bight type-setting
machlneB in the Chronicle offlce were
wrecked and the presses of the paper
are badly damaged. The loss Ib estimated at $75,000 to $100,000, fully cov-
ered by Insurance.
Great Scientist Dead.
Paris,    March  -9.���The    newnpapers
here unite in  recognizing that in  the
death   yesterday  of  M.   Berthelot, tho
the celebrated chemist, who wae for
eign minister in Ute Bergeols cabinet,
France lost perhape her greatest ���dentist.    The Petit Parisian says:
"The twentieth oeatury will leave ao
greater name to posterity. Tbe cabinet
has decided to ask Parliament to authorise a national funeral for M. Berth-
dot, and his wife, who died shortly before her husband, but the deceased
scientists wish was that his funeral be
devoid of display,
JEIW AND ALIENISTS
Examination* oit Surrebutted  In Thaw
Cau Dragging���Net Llktly
to End Thlt Week.
New York, March 19��� Uuleas all
signs fail, today will see the completion
ot the evidence of the long-drawn-out
Thaw trial, and on Friday the cue will
go to the jury after nine week* before
the court. Four more medical experts
will be called to the aland today by the
defence. Dr. Charles W. Pilgrim, superintendent of the insane hospital at
Poughkeepalc, N. Y., Dr. McOregory,
superintendent of the psychopathic
ward at Bellevue Hospital; Dr. Britton
D. Evans and Charles O. Wagner, the
two latter having already testified for
the defence. Each will be aaked, basing his opinion on the district attorney's hypothetical question whether, ln
his opinio*. Thaw, when he ehot White,
knew the nature and quality of hla act
and that _tt_W** wrong. Each will reply-
that ln hi��*opinlon Thaw did aot. Mr.
Jerome's croa-i-istamlnation will probably be brief, and there ta little dowbt
that all the evldenoe In the case will
be In before the court adjourns tonight
Thaw's attorney's stated last nlgbt that
Evelyn Neabltt Thaw would not be recalled to the witness stand. The only
thing ahe could do would be to again
deny that she lold Hummel that she
had been beaten by Thaw, and deny
again that she knew what was In the
famous affidavit when she signed it. It
is not believed that this would be of
any value to the defence aa ahe has already told all of her aide of the Btory.
The attorneys for the -defence state
that they do not consider that the introduction of the affidavit has done
their caae the slightest harm, while District Attorney Jerome ls quoted as saying that he considers It one of the
strongest features-* ot his case. Under
the agreement, each side will take one
day for the aummlng up. If the case
Is finished today, Mr. Delmas will begin
Thursday morning. It ls probable that
Justice Fitsgerald will charge the jury
the following morning and the case
should go to the Jury by noon Friday.
Mr. Delmas ln his address to the jury
will urge the acquittal of Thaw on the
theory that he was temporarily Insane
at the time he killed White. He will
argue that the defence has shown beyond doubt that Thaw's mind was unhinged by the story which Evelyn Nesbitt Thsw told him before they were
married and that lt was while In a condition of mental Irresponsibility that he
took White's life. He will attempt to
discredit A. Hummel, who has testified
that Evelyn Thaw told him everything
that was ln the affidavit, by showing
Hummel's  record.-
District Attorney Jerome will urge
the conviction of Thaw for murder In
the fl-rst degree;,he will claim that
there ls nothing ln the case to show
that Thaw suffered from anything more
than jealousy, and that his hatred for
White, who had been his wife's lover
before he married her, with full knowledge of this fact, led him to revenge
himself by taking White's life.
The case has been fought to the last
ditch by both sides and what the jury
will do no one can tell. In case of a
conviction, there will, of course, be an
Immediate motion for a new trial. Mr.
Delmas has saved all his exceptions,
and his constant objecting may have
served to inject reversible error into
th�� cnse.
District Attorney Jerome, at the
Thaw trial this morning, continued his
cross-examination of Dr. Smith Ely
Jollife, one of ihe alienists for the defence.
"In your answer to th---**, hypothetical
question, doctor," began Mr. Jerome,
"did you Interpret the question ln the
light of facts which * are ouuilde tbe
question*?"
'Why, fn a way, eertninly." answered
Dr. Jollfe, "My knowledge of tbe alphabet allowed me to read the question, but
there ls nothing about that ln the question."
"Did you answer it ln the light of Information furnished you about this defendant, not ln the hypothetical question?"
"I did not."
"Did you have such Information?"
"I did."
"Did you deem thiB Information of Importance?"
"I deemed it of value."
"But you excluded these facts in
framing your answer?"
"80 far as It Ib possible for the human mind to exclude such things, I did.
I have tried to answer conscientiously."
Mr. Jerome produced a -book edited
by Dr. Jollife and attempted to Induce
the alienist to admit a classification of
Insanity contained therein. Mr. Jerome
took up each class of Insanity mentioned therein, and asked the witness
If that was the class of Insanity Thaw
was suffering from when he shot Sanford White. The witness, before answer-
lag each question Insisted upon reading the descriptions given in the book.
The cross-examination dragged along
at great length nnd was something of
a surprise ln view of Mr. Jerome's expeditious handling of the experts yesterday.

(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Victoria, March 18.���Today's
of the legislature was rery brief, and
wa* almost -confined to routine buslntas.
Members on both side* bave so far refrained from oratorical displays, and
every disposition 1* shown to expedite
tbe work af tbe seslou.
Attorney-General Fulton Introduced
four new acta: To amend tbe Administration Act; to amend tbe Supreme
Court Act, an ast to -revive aad continue the existence ot certain companies, and to amend the Probate Duty
Act
Three bills were advanced one stage
each without opposition.
Tbe finance minister moved for committee of supply on Monday the 25th
Inst.
The premier placed his resolution on
tbe Fair Terms question on the order
paper for next Wednesday. The preamble Is an extended historical and
analytical treatment of the financial
relations between British Columbia and
tbe Dominion since thla province entered Confederation, and a statement
of the special circumstances which entitle lt to exceptional treatment. Tbe
declaratory clauses are as follows:
(1) Tbat thi* house endorse tbe
tbe eonne taken by Premier McBride
at tbe aald conference in respect to tf 1
tke foregoing -described action*.    -
(2) Tbat this iam* Is of the opinion
tbat a matter of anch a voluminous nature aa tbe claims of British Columbia
for -special financial recognition by tbe
Dominion government was, and ts, not
of anch a character aa can be justly
considered by a conference of tbe kind
-above mentioned by reason of the fact
tbat a proper Investigation wonld occupy much more time than would be
available at such a caucus were the
claims of British Columbia only to be
considered, aod tbat a proper Investigation of anch claim* would -entail
those charged with visiting Brltlah Columbia and examining tbe conditions on
the spot, aad that aa independent trt-
bual, such aa suggested In the memoranda mentioned above, wonld be tbe
naly Inst mthod of arriving at�� proper dseUoa aa to sash claims; aad that
particularly In view of tbe tact tbat
otber provinces of tbe Dominion are
making similar claim* of a financial
character, there la neb a conflict of interest a* would militate very strone'y
against an equitable decision aa to the
claim* of Brltlah Columbia being arrived at by a tribunal composed In Its
entirety of representatives of other
provinces.
(3) That an hnmble address be presented to the lieutenant-governor requesting that a copy of this resolution
be forwarded to his excellency the governor-general for consideration; snd
tbat a further copy thereof, accompanied by what documentary evidence
hla honor the lieutenant-governor may
deem expedient, be transmitted to his
excellency the governor-general with a
request that It be transmitted, through
proper channels, to the right honorable
secretary of state for the colonies.
A QOOD  PERFORMANCE.
The Return I
Company a 1
I ef the Asmsdtn
In Every Wsy.
The general verdict of those wbo attended the performance of the Claude
Amsden Musclal Comedy Company at
Sherman'* opera bouse laat evening
wa* tbat the company made good. "Olivette" I* a charming opera, and while
lt wa* not given in It* entirety, the substitute waa most acceptable. Tbe oompany ba* been somewhat strengthened
since Its but appearance here, and now
Includes many artists of international
reputation. Of course Claude Amsden
was strongly ln evidence, and It ia not
flattery to say that hla presentation of
"Coquelicot" was admirable in every
respect. Miss Jenkens was seen here
few years ago with the Olympia Opera
Company, and her voice bas not loat in
either volume or quality. In tbe title
role she is really above criticism. Miss
Davenport Is always a favorite ln Nel-
son, and her performance last evening
entitled ber to a continuance of tb*
favor in which ahe bas been esteemed
In tbe past Tke other members of tb*
company were all that could be desired,
and the chorus, while not strong, was
ln perfect harmony throughout. Tonight
tbe ever popular "Mascot" will be presented, and no doubt tbe audience will
be quite aa large a* hat evening, when
the house waa comfortably tilled.

LIBERALS AND FAIR TERMS.
One Liberal journal in British Columbia is making a very sad exhibition on
the question of Better Terms, lt will
probably be comjielled to trim shortly
as J. A. Macdonald is very unlikely to
swallow his campaign uus-ninces and
become an apologist for tbe Dominion
governmenl as against this province.
So one has ever denied that J. P.
Whitney and R. P. Roblin were as un-
s; mpathetic to British Columbia's
claims as any of the Liberal provincial
premiers. Sir. McUride has never made
any distinction of parties in his references to that conference.
But British Columbia has no relations
with her sister provinces except temporarily and artificially at such confer
ences. Our relations are with the Dominion government and it is to that
body that we are entitled to look for
justice. The political complexion of the
present administration at Ottawa Is
also of absolutely no importance In this
controversy. Party politics have nothing to do with the case. The issue Is
between British Columbia and the res'
of Canada as represented by the Dominion government.
The introduction of the names of Mr.
Whitney and Mr Roblin and the sup
gestlon that they, not the Dominion
ministers, are the enemies of British
Columbia, represent a point of view
which, If honestly held is superlatively
silly. There Is 110 obligation on Mr.
Whitney, Mr. Roblin, or any other premier of a province to understand the
circumstances peculiar to British Columbia any more than Mr. McBride is
under obligations to study the peculiar
conditions! of Prince Edward Island.
Tbe attempt to shield the Dominion
ministers behind the provincial premiers is either dishonest or imbecile.
The   characterization of the resolu
tions introduced by Premier MoBrlde
a, "grand stand play' betrays a very
low standard of political morality. The
���resolutions are full, clear and faultless
ia tone; they are a fair and moderate
statement of the claims of British Col-
unmbia. and unless we have greatly
overestimated the wisdom and integrity
ssf J. A. Macdonald. they will receive
his unreserved support.
Conservatives generally will entirely
appreciate the tender concern of the
Liberals for the supposed difficulties of
Premier McUrted ln filling his cabinet.
Speaker D. M. Eberts and Mr. Fulton
are said to be hopelessly indolent, and
-ave solicitude Is expressed lest the
public Interest should suffer by the
work of two such Importanl departments as the attorney-general's and
sands and works being entrusted, even
temporarily to such weak hands as Mr.
Pulton's. The public generally feel no
alarm. They know that the administration or every department of the public,
service Is cleaner, more efficient and
more prompt now than under any form-
or government. Assuming that the opin-
ion expressed of Mr. Fulton Is perfect-
ly sincere, it indicates true grandeur of
soul. Only a few of the mightiest Intellects are capable of preserving so
lofty a contempt for their vanquishers
The Union of British Colubla Municipalities is certain to prove a very valuable public institution. While many,
perhaps most, of the members of the
legislature have had experience on mu
nlcipal councils, the interests of the lat.
ter are often extremely divergent and
sometimes even conflicting. The work
of the municipal committee has always
been hampered by efforts of municipalities to secure special amendments lo
meet their special requirements, which
might be, and often were, entirely out
of harmony with the general tenor of
the Municipal Clauses Act. But the tin-
Ion can now speak authoritatively for
all the municipalities and all conflicting
Interests are reconciled before auy requests are presented to the governmnt.
From the present provincial admin isl 111.
tion at least the recommendations of
the union are sure to receive intelligent and sympathetic treatment.
The number of dealers In Kootenay
fruit lands doing business In Nelson has
nearly doubled since last year. As the
additions aie generally of shrewd business men who have carefully studied
the situation, it is a fair indication that
greater activity than ever before Is
looked   for  this  season.
The work of extending and impmv
Ins the lighting of the city streets is
proceeding very satisfactorily, and good
progrs/ss Is being made with the repairs
of the street cars. In a few weeks at
Iht- most arrears of work will be ovssr-
taken aud Nelson will look Iik, is dtj
again.
St. Patrick's Day is past, St. (ieorsae's
Day is still a month away. Belvlll, Tom-
kins has been wished good luck, but
there is a deterred 10,000 Club smoker
which may be launched on au innocent
public at any time. There's no rest
lor the weary.
PROPOSALS FOR REFORM
Tory   Members  of  House  of  Lords  Are
Approving  Principle and  Making
Practical   Suggestions.
London. March li*.���Lord Newton has
put forward proposals for reform of the
House of Lords which he hopes will
prove acceptable to the peers and also
to the people. His proposal is outlined in a published memorandum:
In the first place tt reduces the preponderance of the hereditary element
in the House of Lords by providing
thut the possession of a peerage by descent shall uot, of itself, give any right
to a seat in the House, and that a peer
entitled hy descent shall not receive a
writ of the summons unless he has held
one of certain high offices, or has been
elected twice, before succeeding to fate
peerage, to the house of commons; or
unless he is elected as a representative
peer under the bill. The representative
peers will be elected for a parliament,
and not for life. In the second place,
the bill gives the crown power to aj>-
point life peers up to a total of lou.
The bill also contains clauses providing
for tlj The reduction of the number of
bishops in the house; i2i Assimilating
the system established for England and
the Scotch and Irish system of electing
representative peers; and loi Enabling
any hereditary peer who is willing to
give up his chance of becoming a representative peer, or of sitting in the house
of lords as a qualified peer, to stand for
the house of commons.
"The high offices" which Lord Newton suggests should qualify an hereditary  peer for a writ of summons are:
"(li High judicial offlce within the
meaning of the Appellate Jurisdiction
Acts, 1876 and ISS?; (2) the offlc* of
first lord of the treasury, secretary of
state, chancellor of the exchequer, president of the council, or head mot being
a permanent civil servant) of any other
government department; (3) the offlce
of lord lieutenant of Ireland ami secretary to the lord lieutenant; Ui office
or viceroy to India, or of governor of
the presidency of Madras or Bombay.
or of lieutenant governor of any province of India; <5i office of governor-
general of the Dominion of Canada or
of the commonwealth of Australia, or
of high commissioner of South Africa,
or of governor of any colony; (6) the
office of parliamentary under secretary,
parliamentary secretary, or permanent
under-secretary, in any government department; (7) offlce of lord of the admiralty or member of the army council;
(8) offlce of minister plenipotentiary, or
any higher office, in His Majesty's diplomatic service; and 04) oflice of the
vice-admiral, or any higher offlce, in his
Majesty's naval forces, or of lieutenant-
general, or any higher office, in His
Majesty's land forces."
Lord Curzon, of Kedleston, who has-;
strongly advocated the adoption of reform of the Lords by the Conservative
party, has written an open letter to
Lord   Newton  as  follows:
My Dear Newton���1 have read your
hill for Uie reform of the House of
Lords with great interest, and am glad
that you have introduced it.
Admitting that the future of that
House is certain, at no distant date, to be
brought before the electorate, there appear to be three methods by which
the Unionist party might deal with It:
(1) To defend tbe existing House
without alteration.
(2) To reform it upon lines not inconsistent  with   its   constitution.
(3) To substitute for it a new chamber, constructed on some different lines.
The proposal to leave the House of
Lords alone, hut to destroy or to cur.
tail its veto can obviously make no appeal to us, since it is only assassination in a thin disguise, and ff we are
to cut off the arms anl legs of the Upper House we might as well cut off It-
head at once.
Of the methods open to our party, I
earnestly hope that we shall associate
ourselves with the second���I. <;., a definite and well-thought-out plan of n
form, designed to meet the principal
criticisms urged against the House of
Lords���namely, its undue numbers and
sparse attendance, the absence from it
of representaiives of important classes,
and the excessive predominance of one
political party. I have always argued
that the process of selection from the
existing body of hereditary peers can be
best effected hy applying the teat of
public service; and I therefore heartily

PROPOSALS FOR REFORM
(Continued from Page Two.)
sympathize with thla feature of your
proposal. The member of one party can
satisfy any such test as easily as tlie
member of another, and there can Ins
no suspicion of party manipulation.
Whether the further reduction of the
<-xisllng numbers should be brought
about hy the election of a certain number of peers by their own order Is, per-
hapB, more open to argument, since
here, even with minority representation, the criticism that one party would
continue to be unduly ' represented
might be held to apply.
Whatever may be settled about this,
I should hope, ln any reform, to see
the principle of life peerages admitted
ou a large scale, partly as a counterpoise to the hereditary element, partly
with a view to representing classes of
the community or of the public service,
such as the different religious denominations, other than the Church of England, the Labor organizations, the Indian Civil Service, the Colonies, and other
important interests at the present unrepresented or Inadequately represented in the House of Lords.
Might not the power also be given
to a prime minister to recommend the
appointment of a considerable (though
not unlimited) number of peers In the
first session of a new Parliament, so as
to produce a closer corteapondence, if
desired between the strength of parties
in the two Houses?
1 hold most strongly that the hereditary peer who is debarred from the
House of Lords Bhould be at liberty
to enter the House of Commons, but 1
agree with you that his choice, lf so
made, should be final. Personally I
should like to see the ministers of the
crown permitted to speak ln both
Houses, aB Is done In many foreign
countries.
These, however, are details or accessories of any scheme of reform, and
much discussion will doubtless be required before a measure can be devised
which will reconcile the aspirations of
all the reformers of different schools
The important thing is the adoption
of reform as a principle by the party
by whom alone, so far as can be seen,
it is at all likely to be successfully carried Into effect. There are, I am convinced, hundreds of thousands of voters���and I believe that one day we shall
find them to be a majority���who have
not sufficient confidence In the Houss:
of Commons to wish Its measures to be
free from all revision or control, and
who, therefore, regard a second chamber as Indispensable, but whose respect
for our existing Upper House, so far
from being shaken, will be greatly enhanced If its supports come forward
with a plan of reform which, while voluntarily surrendering many of the privileges now enjoyed by the Peers, will
obtain by this sacrifice a second chamber entitled to the trust of reasonable
men of all parties. If the Peers themselves were to take the Initiative In
such a proposal, as they have already
twice done, with the surrender first,
of the privilege of voting by proxy,
and , secondly, of the right ot voting
on legal appeals, they would be playing a similar party to that enacted by
many of the great hereditary nobles of
Japan at the time of the Japanese Revolution, when by voluntarily divesting
thmeselves of much of the prerogative
they built up the fabric of the reformed
Constitution and started their country
upon the advance which has had such
astonishing results. I sincerely hope
that your bill may receive the favorable consideration of the House of
Lords, and that the Unionist party will
accept the principle of reform as a feature in thetr policy and push it to a
practical Issue as soon as they may
possess the power. I am yours sincerely, CURZON.
