Mr. Diplock Returns.
Mr. and Mrs. A. 13. Diplock and
family have returned after an
enjoyable trip to England. Mr.
Diplock had not been to his old
home at Chiswick, near London,
in seventeen years, and was
surprised tu find that the place'had
grown in population Irom b,uou to
50,000. Intact, all London, where
lie spent most of his time, had
increased tremendously in late
years. Streets have been widened
and buildings erected higher.
The means of transportation to
and from thc city were taxed to
the uttermost. It seemed as
though the daily routines of the
different companies were to strive-
to get the suburbanites into the
great metropolis in the forenoon
and return them to their homes in
the afternoon, "lt would seem as
though the circle of the big city
were increasing so rapidly that tbe
whole island in time would be
taken in. Motor 'buses, electric
turns, railroads, and tlie like,
were hardly adequate for the
tremendous traffic."
And the trains run at high
speed, too?" suggested Tin
"Yes," said Mr. Diplock, "an
American passenger seemed so
terrified in one ol llie coaches thai
he attiactcd the attention ol a
fellow traveller, who asked him
what made him look so scared.

American. 'Suiely the American

Amusing Blunders Made by Members
of British  Parliament.
Frequenters of tho House, an authority writes to The Dally Mall, have for
a long time remarked a woful depreciation In tho art of Parliamentary
speaking. Notable exceptions are
Mr. Balfour, Mr, Chamberlain, Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman, Mr, As-
qiiith, Mr. John Redmond an.] Mr. T.
Henly; the last named, during an Irish
laiiil debate last session, delivered one
of iho finest speeches it has been my
pleasure to hoar.
Curious enough Is the fact that probably the best grammar and the most
lucid and finished sentences come
' from the Labor side In the example
set by Mr. K. ir Hardle, Only an unfortunate but no doubt conquerable
Jerklness of delivery prevents the Laker leader from being numbered In tha
front rank of modern Parliamentary
oral irs,
The mixed metaphor gives many un-
Buspectlng members a fall, Mr. As-
qulih n >t lung ngo amused the Houso

tied, our hands nre fettered, and we

Mr. Jaahn Burns Improved on this by
declaring, In referom o 11 the Children's
Employment Bill, "I will now repeat
what I was about to s.iy when tho
Imu 'rahle member Interrupted me."
Then there was the wealthy manufacturer member who, dealing wlih the
legal position of trade unions, asseverated that "the Inti rests ot tho employers ami employed are tho same
nlno times mil ot ten—nay, I Will go
furiher, nnd say ninety-nine times
out of ten"
A member of the present Opposition,
observing signs of dissent from a
Liberal, exclaimed: "All, the'honorable
member opposite mny shake his head,
but ho cannot shake mine." "Sir," said
Mr. Walter Long on education matters, *wo are told that by this legislation the hearl of the cuintry will bo
shaken to Its foundations."
Tlio House of Commons Is too hurried, too strenuous, t 'O utilitarian In
these limes ta, encourage the ornamental In oratory. Moreover, every
member in the chamber appears anxious to have his Bay. Up to the present some 100 leglslal irs out of 070 have
delivered sp thes during tho session.
These are regarded n.s the principal
causes of the decadence of Parliamentary style.
