l'or tho four )cars that the gen

the house of commons, It has been
tr)lug to remedy this condition, a
little ut ii time, by the enactment of
laws lightening tho burden of lux

more of it upon the rich. Tho house
of commons has passed thcso hills

us regularly they have been rejected
by tho houso of lords. ,
Finally, the liberals resolved to
bring mutters to a definite Issue.

houso of loninions whut Englishmen
cull a budget n meusttro correspon

bill, but considerably broudcr in Its

been tnlng for four lours to ac-

lords accepted tho bill, his work ot
lefoim would have been wrought.
Hut he did not much believe the
lords would ntcopt It. In the event
of a rejection, his plan was for the
government to resign and mil a na

A certain moderate clement among

which of those elements will win,
Either nj, will suit the liberals.
The lord's theory Is that the lib

they are weakened by the operation
of thelr enemies' reform schemes. In
