to vote in general elections to control
through their representative matters of
legislation, provided, that these same
electors have approved Tory legislation J
by electing a majority of Tory mem-
bers to the house. But the constitu- j
tion, in its present form, does not per- j
mit the people to register their will in j
sfatutorv law if thev atmrove of Lib- i

j of Liberal members. This difficulty
j having lately become so patent that no i

Questions Become Acute.
The questions involved in this great
constitutional controversy first became
acute In 1906, when the Liberal party j
carried the country by a tremendous
majority In the liouse of commons. The
commons passed an education bill, pro
viding for the divorce of church and
state in the management and control of
the common schools: v This bill was mu
tilated beyond recognition by the irre- j
sponsioie nouse of lords. A licensing
bill, aimed at a restriction of the liquor
traffic, met a similar fate. A bill to
restrict plural votina: on proDerf.v Qual
ification also was rejected bv the oeers. I
Their lordships made it quite plain to
the leaders of the majority in the house
of commons that no bill incorporating
the principles of progressive economic
or social philosophy would be toler
ated. Commons Claims Sole Right. i
Nearly thrre centuries ago, under the
leadership of Oliver Cromwell, the com- I
mons asserted their exclusive right and
power to control the purse strings of '
the nation. After the restoration of (
the monarchy the house of commons I
solemnly proclaimed by a. series of res- '
olutions that the commons had the sole J
right to levy taxes, to make expend i- j
tures on the public account, and to
have absolute control of all money j
bills without let or hindrance in the ,
house of lords. For'nearly three centu- I
ries this claim of the commons was not !
questioned. The king, in his speech .
from the throne, always was "careful to .
direct his remarks concerning revenues .
and expenditures solely to the com- i
mons, expressly excluding the lords. !
The special interests' of aristocracy
and plutocracy represented in the upper
chamber and having; no stomach for de- '
mocracy, heeded well the lesson of the I
Cromwellian revolution "and cheerfully I
admitted by noncontention the exclu-1
sive control of the commons over the '
purse strings. But of course the aris
tocrats and plutocrats were not willing !
to give up their actual control of the
treasury, so they instituted a system
of controlling the house of commnn5 hv .
means of members returned from rot- !
ton borough and by the most shameless j
onoery ana corruption. During all that
time the electors went through the
form of sending t'eir representatives
to parliament, but th mainrttv nf tv.o.
'members of the house were controlled
uJ " s'di mrus oi privilege and no
Enactment of Reform BUL
Finally the people became indignant,
threw off their shackles of corruption
and managed, in 1S32. to compel the
enactment of the reform bill, which
materially advanced the rxpral condi
tion of British politics, and which
seemed to give to the people the right
to control their own affairs. But the-e
was no party representing true democ
racy. There was a Tory aristocracy,
and a "Whig aristocracy. Whether Con
servative jor Liberal, every political
leader belonged to what was known as
the "ruling class," and there was not
one who failed to recognize the de
mands or caste.
In 190G the reoVganized and recon
structed Liberal party won the election
and the affairs of government were
turned over to a ministry in which the
Whig element was overwhelmed by the
modern progressive democratic element.
For the first time the plain rteople of
England and not the ruling classes had
a majority in parliament. The fate ct
the legislation they initiated has been
outlined. .Every measure died in the
house of lords. But the commons still
had the power of the purse. Thy re
solved to attack the bulwarks of the
aristocracy by exercising their exclu
sive power of taxation, realizing to the
full that the power to tax is the power
to destroy. They attacked the land
Taxing Land Values.
The budget of 1909, Introduced by
David Lloyd-George, chancellor of the
exchequer, provided for the taxation of
land values. The house of lords,, made
up of the owners of mors than three
fourths of all the land in Grear Brit
ain, refused to submit their iprooerly to
taxation. They rejected the budget
The controversy was referred to tn'-
people and in January of this year, only
11 month ago, the Rad'.cil call tion was
returned to power and the Tories were
defeated The lords bowed to the will
of the people with respect to this one
measure only and passed the land tax
es. But they were not willing to ab
rcgate their power to amend and re
ject legislative bills other than money
bills. They acknowledged only that the
verdict of the election confirmed the
commons in their right to claim tradi
tional and constitutional control over
the purse strings.
The prime minister, ilr. Asquith, in
troduced a bill in parliament providing
that a measure passed three times by
the house of commons within two years
should become a law even without the
approval of the house of lords. This
was known as the veto bill, since it
abrogated the lords' right to veto legis
lation approved by the commons. The
only way the veto bill ever can Become
a law is for it to pass the house of
lords. The only -way to get the house
of lords to vote itself out of existence
fs for the king to create a sufficient
number of radical peers to overcome
the Tory majority in the upper house.
As the king must act on the advice
of his ministers, it was expected that
Mr. Asquith would Jlsk the king for
"guarantees" to make the will of the
people effective in this fashion. When
the controversy arrived, at, that stage
the whole British empire was shocked
by the death of king Edward and the
warring political factions declared a
Truce of God. In, November that truce
was ended and the present elections

American Ambassador to
Britain Exalts Great
Birmingham, Eng., Dec. S. The
American ambassador, Whitelaw Reid,
last night delivered an address before
Birmingham university on Abraham
Lincoln, closing the course which has
been in progress on "The Makers of
History in the 19th Century."
Mr. Reid spoke from personal ac
quaintance and close familiarity with
the career of the great American
statesman. His address was notable in
clearing away many of the popular
misapprehensions concerning Lincoln.
Mr. Reid referred to the emancipator
as not in the least a simple minded rus
tic, or a professional reformer, but on
the contrary an ardent partisan and a
master hand in the intricacies of the
game of politics- Although personally
modest and sensitive, Lincoln was pic
tured as being from his earliest man
hood a persistent office seeker and the
most ambitious of men.
Mr. Reid dwelt upon Lincoln's abili
ties as a story teller, maintaining that
with all his wit and humor, he was
not perpetually telling humorous and
sometimes risque stories in the -hlte
house. The ambassador said that for
every story told by Lincoln while pres
ident, a hundred poorer and coarser
stories have been fathered on him. Mr.
Reid said that this sacred name of Lin
coln should not be taken as "a conven
ient decoration for some popular hu
morist and jokesmith by trade."
Mr. Reid traced the career of Lincoln
from his earliest pioneer days and
dwelt at length upon the final stages
of his career during and at the con
clusion of the civil war. He summed
up his estimate as follpws:
"Vnu luiVft richtlv :olrtfl Tiim ns
the chief American maker of history 5
In thfi 19th nfnlir- TIip trnrlfl Inn?
ago chose another as our chief maker
of history for the ISth century. I ven
ture to think George Washington and
Abraham Lincoln not inferior to any
sons of the race born in those cen
turies under any skies nay, more, i
venture to think that in the whole long
and glorious history of that race, while
its history was ous as well as yours,
they have never been surpassed."
J Some of his pointed declarations
ere: , '
"I place him far above any other of
your shining list of the makers of his
tory in the 19th century far abqye
Bismarck, far above Gambetta or Haz
zini, or the marquis Ito.
"Though pers6nally modest and sen
sitive, he was from his earliest man
hood a persistent office seeker, avid the
most ambitious of men. "
"He was an ardent partisan and the
most skillful master of men and of all
J the intricacies In the game of politics
known In his state.
"He was not perpetually telling hu
moroxis and sometimes risque stories
in the white house. For every one he
did tell 100 poorer and coarser ones
have been fathered on him.
"At the most critical period of his
life he was the victim of such melan-
I cholia that his friends feared for his
reason. Always when not in animated
conversation he was the most melan
choly looking of men.
"To regard this highest and saddest
staesman of the century as a mere
professional wearer of cap afid bells is
a great indignity belittling his blood
"He knew his Bible better than any
other book. He was never a member of

FIGHT WITH MEXICANS
fight between Dee Payne and Nacio j
Rodrigues. a Mexican, caused more ex
citement here than the insurrectionists
have caused all the time they have
been struggling in this new insurrec
tion. It is charged that Nacio Rod
rigues has been in the habit of pastur
ing his horses on Payne's alfalfa and
wheat land. Several times Payne has
corraled the horses, but the natives
'come and take them out when the
Paynes are out of sight. This time
Paj-ne went to the field early on pur
pose to catch the horses and when he
got there he rounded them up with
his, whn the Mexican boy came and
scattered all of the horses. Payne then
left his cwn and corraled the trespass-
er s horses and locked them in the cor
ral. While he was after his own ani
mals, Nacio Rodrigues and his fwo
sons same, tore down the fence and se
cured the horses. When Payne rode
up hot words followed, then the Mexi
can struck Dee on the arm with a rock,
he slipped from his horse and the fight,
one on one side and three on the other,
began. In the struggle they secured
PajTie's buggy whip and cut him a ter
rible gash on his head, that afterwards
required several stitches to close. An
gered with pain, Payne made an extra
effort, secured his whip and put all
three of his assailants to flight.
