The King in suggesting a conference
iE following the precedent set by Queen

graver importance, since the issues

the constitutional procedure revised in a
conciliatory spirit and to avoid an open

general electorate as the court of arbi

and approval. Before his wishes were
kßo*ni the nation may not have con

A conference may be doomed to fail

their King. Bo the processes of con

factorily, and it will not be long before
half a dozen or more negotiators are
seated around a round table.
Their problem will be the readjust
ment of the relations of the houses re

without the preposterous menace of the
creation of five hundred peers. If a
