Loudon, Feb. 2. Under tho heav
iest pressure. Premier Asqulth sur
rendered today to the newly created
alliance mado up ot the radicals In
his own patty and the Irish National
ists and Lnbnrltes and ngreed to In
troduce the mensuro for the limita
tion of the lords' ve and tho budget
The plan is to foreo a vote on tlio
veto ahead of the budget. It Is con
ceded that the houso of lords will re
ject the measure, when the premier
will make his demand upon the king
for the crown's appointment of
enough Liberal peers to ensure tho
pnssago of the veto measure.
If the king nccedes ,tho crisis will
be passed In safety, but If ho refuses,
tho cabinet will resign Immediately,
without even passing tne budget or
providing for the royal salary list.
This will force n now election on
the Issue of the lords' veto.
Today's arrangement Is unofllclnl,
but It beur.? the approval of nil tho
Liberal, Uiborlto and Nationalist
leaderH and Is believed to be as bind
ing ns a formal compact.
The climax to the situation will
come In about three days. Asqulth's
Ulllclal head depends on his fealty to
tho new program. Should ho show
ibc-s'lgbtoslifeslfancy, his leadership
will bo repudiated and Chancellor of
the Exchequer Lloyd-Oeorjre will bo
appointed lender In Ids stead.
In tho event of a now election, It
seems a foregono conclusion that
Lloyd-Georgo will succeed Asqulth,
should the Liberals bo victorious.
It Is believed Asqulth would not
have ngreed to today'B plan had ho
not received nssuranco from tho king
that the latter will sWamp tho upper
houso with Liberal peers In caso of
the rejection of tho veto bill.. Should
King Edward refuso Asqulth's re
quest, the responsibility for a now
election will thus bo upon his
shoulders and the lenders of the min
isterial coalition nro ulready plan
ning to muke (in I si tie of Ills disre
