The Needed Experiment
London Juno 11 Tho Times of to
day remarking on tho growth of lawless

whatever titlo wero just for onco not
suffered to havo its own way If Its
appeal to force were met and overcome
and If the mob wero dispersed and forbid
den to reassemble tho consequence might
bo happy In tho extreme Ono victory
of tho law would bo tho signal
for others Tho objections to such au ex
periment aro obvious but not conclusive
The forcible dispersion of a mob In Ire
land would certainly bo followed by a
howl of execration from their parliamen
tary friends and champions Tho Irish
press which Is silent over Injuries to tho
police would be eloquent In tho caso we
aro now 6Uppostng but tho land league
would receive something very like Its
