Sneaking of economic and political
I conditions Mr. McCulloch says that
the cost of living In Great Britain ia
much higher in proportion to wages,
than it waa In America. "Much emigra?
tion Is taking place, Australia coming
in for a large share, while the United
States and Canada are each getting
their quote." he aald. There Is no
question but that Great Britain la los?
ing the flower of her population in this
way. and a recognition of this fact ia
arousing the government to activity.
However, the Liberal party, in its ef?
forts to stem the tide, la doing nothing

issue thst ia cashing cleavage in the,
ranks of Loberalfsm. and recent occur- j

Mr. McCulloch said that his voyages

cause of the Imposing spectacle fur?

count of the dramatic suicide of a

For years. as everybody knows. I
! money has been a most important fac- j

sory notes were taken from the voters
for the amount of the tax. in return
for the "loan'' of the money. StU>
later, becoming bolder, workers paid j
tbe taxes of voters en block in thej
offices of the county treasurers. |
