L'X1on May 'J. The annua1, grand
habitation of the Primrose League
was held in Albert Hall this after
noon, iko spacious building was
gayly decorated and was well filled.
The Marquis of Salisbury presided
and received an ovation. Mme. Al
bum sang a verse of "God Save tho
Queen," which was then taken up by
the vast audience.
Lord Salisbury in the course of his
address commented on the remark
able change which had taken place
in the latter half of the century in
the views -of the people', regarding
tho empire. They former'y repelled
it. he aid, as a burden, and that)
doctrine was carried to such ex-l
tremes by a man of splendid genius..,
Gladstone, that it produced a .strong"
reaction, which started after the
disaster of Majuba Hill and the
death of General Gordon. The death
of Gordon, he continued, had been
avenged. Perhaps it was too soon
to say the great humiliation of Ma
juba had been effaced or that the J
great wrong had been righted, but
they felt they TeVe on thd . road td
accomplish that end. Urder the
brilliant guidance of Lord Roberts
200,0!H( soldiers, a larg-jr army than
had ever before been sent across
the same expanse of, sea, were now
engaged in reducing to the obediencyj
to the Queen those terriTrtrie's whiclv
ought never to have been ' l ilcas:d
and to restoring to South Africa tire
only chance it had of peace, develop
ment and tranquillity. '
The Premier next referred to the
difficult and intricate Irish problem
and said: !
"Mr. Gladstone, in an dviP-'inomentJ
for his party, attached hnr.se .f ip the
idea of the separation of England,
and Ireland. No tino can 'say the.
home rule cause 'presents Umy cle--mcnt1.
of -sanguine anticipation for'
the fuurp. I am assured that there
is no hope for the predominant party;
ever giving to Ireland 'practical
independence-. We have learned
something from the South African
war how that disloyal government,
in spite of warnings, could accumu
late, armaments against the most
poh'-rful combatant and thus secure;
a- 'crHble advantage. Wo ndwj
know better than we did ton years'
ago what a risk it would ; bo vif wed
gave 'a disloyal government in IrlJluiidl
the power of accumulating forces
against this country. 11 ? ;.
"Hereafter external affairs will
occupv a considerably larger place
among tho problems we have to
solve. Not necessarily because in'
themselves they are more important,
but if w look around we can see the
elements and causes of menace "and
peril slowly atcciimulating, and they
may accumulate to such a point as
to require our earnest and -most
active efforts to repel them.
"I am nervous at using language;
of such a kind lest it should be!
thought I am incVrating that some-j
thing is known to tine Foreign Office
by pointing out this' possible danger.
But I wish most emphatically to say
I have no idea -of that kind. That
state of uffairs, as I know it and so
far as the Government is concerned,
is peaceful It is impossible to speak
too highly of t!je careful, calm neu
trality which h'as been observed by
all the. governments of the world. j
'A ''rl;uin section of their sub-1
H'cts, not, T luip,' a very large. J
tL'ough a noisy one,' has ' at . the ' pre

root of bitterness against England,
which I am unable to explain, maybe

journalists today, - or it may indicate'

mav have to reckoii with. There

the feeling or sympathy of other
