LEADERS QF MEN I
Balfour, Bonar Law and
Lord Lansdowne Form
HAVE FOUGHT HOME
EULE FEOM FIRST
BY FREDERIC J. IIASKIN.
ONDON, BNG, May . "Union
ist" is the name chosen by the
opposition to the Asquith gov
ernment, the nanic by which the Con
. servatives choose to call themselves.
It means that the party is devoted to
the -Union." which ifi the United ifclng
dom of Great Britain and Ireland.
Naturally, the first political Instinct
of a Unionist is opposition to heme
rule, for home rule means a dissolu
tion of the union.
There is a real division of sentiment
in the party, but it follows the line of
tarifr policy, and not of the old formal
division This difference of opinion
is quite sharp, and in the event of the
return of a Conservative majority In
tho next general elections may con
siderable complicate matters.
If the Unionists were to win the next
election, either Bojiar Law or lord Lans
downe would be made prime minister.
It is not unlikely that the choice be
tween these two- men actually would
be made bv Mr. Balfour. For these
rtasons it is interesting to have a look
at all three men.
Balfour Able Leader.
Mr Balfour is the rblest of the lead
ers. A nephew of the late marquess J
or aiiDury, ana a raemoer ot me la
mous Cecil family, he was born Into
an active political life. The Cecil fam
Ilv believes in its dynastic facnltv for
government. The last Unionist cabinet
at one time included in its makeup
the marquess of Salisbury as premier,
his two nephews, brothers. Arthur J.
and Gerald Balfour, and when he had
rilerl and was succeeded bv Mr. Balfour.
his son the present marquess of Sal- I
Israrr came into tne caomet.
BMfour in his younger days, caused
ttu h trouble by encouraging ln-
frrecine strife in the party, but he
ler squinted at Liberalism. He -wrote
a left m e of Philosophic Doubt," but
' .a of the -warmest supporters of
tr e Established church. All bis active
life he has been eWeflv interested in
preientins the grant of borne rule to
j. and. and in his devotion to that
cause he may be said to be the first
T nonist But he is too old to take up
the active care of office again and he
is said to view the outlook with pessi
mism As an adviser, but not as a lead
er. Ms influence is still most potent.
Law a Strons Unionist.
Erniar Law is a gooc Unionist, but
a poor Tory No man is a stronger
supporter of the ideas and ideals of
th Conservative party than he, but he
was not born in the right stratum of
sncietv He first saw the light In
Canada. He was brought to Britain In
lnfancv. and he came up in life through
business channels. That is the key to
Jii- public career. It is difficult to say
whit is the greater disgust, that of
Whig Liberals with Bonar Law's call
in c spade a spade, or that of the
Torv Unionists with John "Ward's call
lnp a king a king. Only the extreme
radicals on either side applaud their
own man's plain talk.
It is ald that 'lord Lansdowne once
confided to a friend: "Oh. Bonar Law
-will do. I suppose, but he can't ever
forget that he ius a Glasgow lron
mongT " That probably gives the key
to the true Tory sentiment concerning
Lansdowne a Standpatter.
The old aristocracy undoubtedly

erred England from time immemorial.
and he is as jealous of their power
and privileges as if there had never

"Wonld Save Lords.
To stop all this lord Laasdowne
would restore the full powers of the
lioi.se of lords, and stop its "dilution"
bv the elevation of radical peers. The
firomotion of such men as John Mor-e-v
and Tames Bryce to the house of
lords, whore the Liberal government
noeds them for political purposes. Is
a grea scandal among the Conserva
tH es So also is the "sale" of peerages
. for ca-npaien contributions, especially
now that the selling Is being done by
a Liberal government.
That weight lord Lansdowne. Bonar

they want the union. It Is rather that
