BILL TO KILL LORDS' '
POWER WILL BE FIRST
LONDON, Feb. 25. Under the
heaviest pressure, Premier Asqulth
surrendered today to the newly-cre-ntcd
alliance, made up of the radi
cals In his own party and the, Irish
Nationalists nnd Lnboritcs, and
ngrecd to Introduce tho measure' for
the limitation of the Lords' veto and
the budget simultaneously. lne
plan Is to force a vote, on the yeto
before the budget Is taken up.
It Is conceded the House of Lords
will reject he measure whon tho
Premier makes his demand upon the
King for the Crown's appointment of
enough Liberal piers to Insuro tho
passage of the v,oto measure. It
the King accedes, the crUls will be
passed In safety, but it ho refuses
tho Cabinet will resign Immediate

or providing for the royal salary Hit.
Arrangement Is Unofficial.
Today's arrangement Is unofficial,
but it bears tho aprpoval of all the
Liberal, Lnborlto and Nationalist
leaders, and Is believed to be as
binding as a formal compact.
The climax to the situation will
como In about three dajs. Asqulth's
official head' depends upon his fealty
to the new program. Should ho
show the slightest hesitancy, his
leadership will be repudiated and
