CHRISTMAS TRUCE STILL EXISTS
The Christmas truce, cables T. P.
O'Connor, M. P., from London, to
the Chicago Tribune, so far as inter
nal politics is concerned, still exists.
Most of the Cabinet Ministers have
left London, and are slowly recover
ing from the gigantic fatigues of
the general election. Premier As
quith, who has a certain scorn for
the world of politicians, hides him
self as usual In the wilds of Scot
land; .and Lloyd-George, more
genial and gregarious and always
fond of a scamper on the continent.

Carlo, while the recent tide of disas

As to the coming Parliament, the
swearing in starts on the last day of
January. The fixing of so early a
date Is one of the many signs that
the Ministry means business and
still hopes to finish the struggle
over the veto before the coronation.
Chancellor Lloyd-George, in an in
terview with the French Journalists, I
scouts the idea ol a second confer-1
ence or of another election and
speaks of the veto struggle as prac
tically closed by the last decisive
election. - Sir Charles Dllke, who as
an Independent member takes a
more detached view and who is a
shrewd and experienced polltican,
also agrees that the veto struggle Is
over snd that the Lords will accept
the Ministerial bill. Dllke also an-
tlcipates that Irish borne rule will
be the first business after the
passage of the veto. In the mean-
time the Ulster Orangemen are
playing their old game of threaten-
ing civil war. They make bellicose enln magg of requiem. u The deceased

the purchase of arms and in bogus

and the whole thing is shown as a
ridiculous attempt to frighten
public opinion in England.
Will BOO new Peers be created!
That is the question that is puzzling
many people. It is not the
time In history that a British
eral Cabinet has bad to face this
contingency that is, not in so ag
gravated a shape. When the
Ministry of Lord Grey In 1832
brought In the reform bill the first
measure to destroy the rotten bor-
ougb system the Lords threw it
out and threatened to repeat the
operation. Grey then got King
William, very unwillingly, to give
him a conditional promise that he
would create enough Peers to carry
the measure; and ft was the threat
of this catastrophe that brought the
Peers to their senses, and they
passed the bill. There is an idea
that the present Ministry would
shrink from thels extreme step ir,
the Peers rejected the veto bill; but
they will not. The men of this
Ministry, differing on many points.
do not differ in their contempt and
Indeed hatred foe the Lords.
One of the little ironies and the
unrevealed stories of the prolonged
and difficult negotiations between
the Liberal and the Irish parties,
which -nearly wrecked everything,
was that Grey was holding out in
the Cabinet for an immediate tack-
ling of the question of the reform
of the House of Lords. Grey wanted .
its entire abolition In its present
shape, and the substitution therefor
ot an entirely elective chamber. It
will come to that in the end, but
meantime it would have been folly
to have entered on such programme
at this moment. The Lords would
not hare accepted it, and the Liberal
party would have broken up on .the
details. But still, this Incident
shows that Grey, as one of the mod- Bea!des her husband, Cornelius Mc
erates of the Cabinet, would not ob- earthy, who has been connected
jeii io any measures against the
Lords. As for two such extremists
as Lloyd-tleorge and Winston Churc-
hill, everybody knows that they are
ready tor almost anything and
that they would create a thousand
Peers if necessary to swamp the
Lloyd-deorge speaks quite cheer-
lly and even airily of the BOO Peers
that would be necessary if the Lords
proved obstinate, and maintains that
a very respectable lot of Liberals
could be found up and down tbe
country who would fill the bill.
