But what I wish to polnt out ls that
mi references to Mr. Gladstone in con
Metlon wlth the contest ln Mldlothian
Jf mWeadina. The so-called Llberal

dtfea which Mr Gladstone abhorred.

was all thre-. On the one issue which
the real h?der of the Radical* means.
, 0r dld mean to make the chlef issue of
the near politlcal future, Mr. Shaw put
his politlcal conscience in the keeping

to put in the forctront of its pro?

has been educatmg his followers up to

'Tax the landlords out of exlstence,"

"I have already made a beglnnlng."
was Mr. Lloyd George's answer. That
was more than a year ago. and. of
course, after the too famous Budget.
Mr. OathwaJte iron*. a Liberal pl%tform
io Mldbtitla-. put it in a more concrete
and crude form:
"I will drive the Duke of Buccleuch
Why? Becauae the Bukr of Buccleuch
is a great land owner. He is a venera
ble flgure, t.ghty-onc jears old. Ht*
owns 480.000 acrea, of which, or p'-irt
tt whlch, says Mr. Outhwaite, he robbed
Ihe ('hurch and robbed the rlghtful
owners. lnvlted by Lord Henry Scott,
the Dukc's son, ro say of what iai.ds
the Cr.urrh or other owners had been
robbed, Mr. Outhwaite could not; but
he did not withdraw his threat nor
ipologiz". On that basis thia Mldlo
thlan oampalga was conducted. Mr.
Bhaw was a consentlng party. He ln?
vlted Mr. Outhwaite to come down and
ipeak for him. He allowed him to take
chgrge of the campaign, to frame a
n*w piatform, and to make land confls
cation the chief plank ln it. It is not
probable that Mr. Shaw approved*-of
the ittack on the Duke of Buccleuch,
?ho is known ln Mldlothian as a good
iuidlord; popular and respected. though
,rtc_, and wlth a farreaching Influence.
The Duke holds hla land by inheritance
ac- punha.-e. He Ib, I suppose, tenunt
for life only. In respect of the greater
POTtlon; as most great land owners are.
B any title ln the United Klngdom i?
?jDod. his is good. But lf this predatory
policy la to prevail no tltle ls good;
efcether to land or, ultimately, to any
ather kind of property.
The rerult of this appeal to covet
nuaneas you know. The Llberal vote
iwreased l.y 2.848. The Labor vote,
?P?n!y bostlle to land stealing, was
5.413. Th" fnionist vote increased by
Ml, and thf Unloniat candidate, Major
Hop*. wa* c*;c*v ifl by 32 majorlty tn a
?OMtitueni-y which the Liberals, in the
fe-eonfls'-ition days, held by 1,187.

Mr. Lloyd 'i'-orge's insurance act -uid

t** decldlng factor was hostlllty to land

Lord Rosebery have set hls hand to this

Can you conceive of his dolng lt for the
proteg, of Mr. outhwalte"'
Mr. Gladstone's coming was n e__l
lenge to this very Duke off Buccleuch,
whom Mr. Outhwalte propo.ses to bank
rupt; the Duke being, Ifl 1880, Earl of
Dalkelth, and had been member for
Midlothlan from 1874 to 1KS0. Never
from beginning to end of that campaign
was there a word of personal Invectlw.
Of Mr. Outhwaite s vulgarlty Mr Gla 1
stone, of course. was incapable, but no
man could hit harder when he chose,
and no man demolish an adversary with
a courtesy of manner more complete.
Even lo Mr. Dlsraell. whom he re?
garded with rellglous horror, he pre?
ferred to be clvll. All hls Bpeeches,
then and in 1884, I heard; in Midlothlan
and far to the north ot Sotland. I
wrote of them at the time In these col
umr.s, copiously and wlth enthusiasm.
All I wish to say now is that the abld
ing impression of them is vlvld after
many intervening yeara, iHirlng which
my admiration of Mr. Gladatone, from
1886 onward, had to t.ike a critlcal
form. From what I sald ln 1879 nnd
1884 I have nothing to abatc, nor do I
now think the spirlt he then showed,
or hia polltlcal methods, less lofty than
I did then. Lord Morley saya, in a
characteristic sentenoe of- his biog

thirty years it identifled itself wlth the

Then, when the spirlt went out of the
