THE ENGLISH LIBERAL LEADER.

I.oXDOS, September ID. Ulad
stone's manifesto, the most delphic
utterance he ever made, has proven
the most successful painphlcting of
his life. The document was secretly
issued to his political colleagues as
early as Monday last. Its first per
ceptible effect was the palpable rc
approaclnncnt between Joseph Chain
beilain, Lord Ilartington and Sir
William Vernon llarcourt, the three
most powerful leaders next to the
cx-proinier himself in thu liberal
party. All three are ambitious men.
and they had been pulling apart.
Each was talcing a large following
along. The radicals were going
along with Chambcilain, the whigs
with Ilartington, and llarcourt was
endeavoring to hold the moderates
The liberal party was being
i:i;xt 10 i'u.CE&.
The manifesto put a &top to the
ripping and diverging triumvirate at
once, and set to work to replace the
stitches that with each effort came
closer together. To-dsvy, a week
only having elapsed, the liberal parly
in Great Britain at least is a unit.
Chamberlain may be said to be
Ihe most rebellious leader in the
whole liberal party. Before Glad
stone's utteiance Chamberlain's
radical campaign tour included Glas
gow, where, no doubt ho was enter
tained that he would repeat his pro
nounced independence, but thu ora
tor spoke in Glasgow after he had
perused the manifesto, and his
spcecli displayed a practical aban

and the adoption of policy of oppor
tunism, and so it has been with Lord
Ilartington and Sir AVm. Vernon
llarcourt. They have also indicated
the complete submission to Glad
stone and have become opportunists.
There are two explanations of these
remarkable submissions. No one
doubts that if these three leaders
had been permitted to pursue the
courses they had mapped out for
-themselves, the liberal paily would
have been dismembered. It was
pretty generally thought Hint Glad
stone was tiicd of public life, and
had decided to remain out of it. Kc
was implored to reconsider this de
termination and assume the manage
ment of the present campaign, for
his party success in this campaign
was essential to the continued exis
tence of the liberal paily as a parly,
and absolute unity was lequisite to
success. Gladstone demanded sub
mission as the price of his leader-
ship. It is, of course, possible to
suppose that Chamberlain, Ilarting
ton and llarcourt consented to drop
their differences out of a pure desire
to accomplish the success of the
party as a whole to oblige, and by
this result pay Gladstone's price,
but no doubt can be entertained that
each of these three men has been
ambitious to succeed Hie "grand old
man" in party leadership.
Circumstances have demonstrated
that the party will at present accept
SO LIUDElt HUT HIM,
and that without hiin restoration lo
power is impossible. The supposi
tion that Gladstone has consented to
lead his party back to power, and is
determined, after its lodgement
there, to retire permanently, would
offer the most reasonable explanation
of the conduct of the three sub
missive leaders, for in this case they
would bo playing for n stake worth
while. In this latter event the
leadership to attain would be that of
a united parly with power. The
thing is immensely different from a
factional success. Many things go
to show that the latter supposition
is the concct explanation of the
turn affairs have taken. In one of
the opening sentences of h'm mani
festo Gladstone uses the
FOLLOWING MOSIl'IOAST hTA'IKMI'.NT :
"It will not be possible for mu to
repeat in the new parliament the
labors of pievious sessions."
This is everywhere accepted us a
' distinct asservation by Gladstone
that he intends, if victorious in this
campaign, to confine himself to the
work of forming a ministry, and
after remaining in the olllcc long
enough to assure the successful
working of his t established govern
mental machinery, to retire perma
nently to privalo life.
It is everywhere apparent that
the premier has secured the innr
vellous and instantaneous restora
tion" of unity in tho libcial party
and given it lighting trim. It is
Its electoral agents in the country

stone's address as "perplexing,"

has been overwhelmingly demon

was what Gladstone aimed at. The
Very vagueness and diffuseius
which characterizes the document
have litis merit, that they permit
each section of the liberal party lo
interpret the whole production
favorably according to factional in
clination and disarm the conservative-
of cogent criticism.
The extreme radical newspaper,
the Dispatch, commenting on the
address, says that it pnfer3 at pre
sent the lea'dcrsdip of Gladstone to
even that of Chamberlain. "He
may not be as radical as we wish,"
say's the Dispatch, "but radicalism
loses nothing by biding its time."
The moderate Spectator declares
that the lesult of the manifesto will
be to enable the liberal party "to
inarch forward like a wall."
of the power of the manifesto is
that afforded by the bourses, which
deal specially in Egyptian. Turkish
and Russian securities. In these
markets Egyptian stocks fell 1;
points, and Turkish and ltussian
securities fell of a point almost
immediately after the publication of
the tenor of the document. Specu
lators whose sales brought about
these declines to explain that the
situation created by the manifesto
is one of a probable return of Glad
stone to the olllce which they say
means British evacuation of Egypt
and an uncertain foreign policy on
the pait of England. " This extra
ordinary taking of time by the fore
lock would appear to establish the
faet that Gladstone is
nu: -most rowniiFn. mas
out of power in the world.
The British political campaign is
developing much curious informa
tion. Liberal electioneering agents,
who have returned from provincial
tours of inquiry, report that they
found a sin prising amount of politi
cal intelligence and information
among the newly enfranchised labor
era in the midland counties. These
new voters, it is repoitcd, generally
appreciate their new political re
sponsibilities, and have clear views
respecting the political principles at
issue between the two great parties,
paiticulaily those relating to the
land question. They entertain no
bitter feelings against the landlords
as such. It is even said that where
there is strong opposition among the
lahoreis to continuance of the estab
lished church, the opposition is one
of principle and finds no personal
vent against the clergy as slate pen
sioners. More than this, the new
voters aic reported to be fairly well
educated on the question of the re
lation between capital and labor and
are able to appreciate the need of
capital, while less willing than ever
to be influenced by money in their
political opinions or action.
An electoral factor of growing im
portance is found in the spread of
the tory Primrose league. This or
ganization is growing daily more
powerful through comprehensive or
ganization. It is establishing lodges
which arc called "habitations," in
even the remotest districts. These
habitations are conducted on the
clubs and are managed with a view
to disseminate party literature and
information and to keep alive party
spirit and pride.
Everything possible is done to
make the membership tempting and
permanent. Ladies nro induced to
join the habitations and perform
missionary work in their interest,
and all the moral and social intlu
eiice, political literature and talk
can do to catch or coerce votes is
unsparingly done by the Primrose

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors of Ihe Equitable Life As
surance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to the public, leport:
1st The Society issues all tho approv
ed forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Ei dowment and Tontine po
licies. It Is immaterial to tho Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for nnnual cash divi
dends and a surrender value; are indis
putable after three years and payable,
immediately after proof of death.
3d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on tho Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay
able in tho event of death, the holder of
tho Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve and the accu
mulated profits in rash nt the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life,
time, nftcr his producing years aro past,
ho can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that the return
paid in cash on maturing Tonlino po
licics approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the Interest
on the premiums.
5th Tontine policies, like others, are
paid In full In the event of death nt any
time during the term of the policy, and
are incontestable after three years, and
payablo immediately after duo proof of.
0th Experience shows Hint tint mor
tality is lower among Tontine policy,
holders, as the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is n consider
nblo source of profit.
7th Tontlno policies will bo made
non-forfeitnblo under the laws of the
State, if bo desired at the time tho as.
surnnco is effected.
8th The Tontine system is fair and
just; its nccounts nro accurately kept,
separato from all other business, the
funds judicioubly Invested nnd Improv
ed, and tho accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly appoitioned.
0th The Society has since its organl.
zntion transacted n larger amount of
now business than any other company,
while its new business for tho first hull
of the present year is $1,750,000 Jargcr
than that of tho first half of 1881. It
