Politicians Trying to Crowd
Into Few Days ?Vork
of Months.
Mr. Balfour Publicly Warned While
Speaking, That If Irish Parliament
Is Set Up Its Authority Will Not be
Recognized?"Dance to Tune of
American Paymaster."

(By Associated Preast
LONDON. Nov. 29 ?The iwliiieians!
of hX parties are straining every j
nerve to crowd Into a few days the!
work which in ordinary elections is;
spread over weeks or months. Near-j
!y all the heavy guns were in sctloti;
tonight. Arthur J, Balfour. leader of;
the opposition in the hom e of com-j
mons, before a big meeting in Albert j
Hall, where he warmly supported the'
referendum, described the govern-j
meat as puppets dancing to the tune
of John Redmond and his American j
The prime minister. Mr. Agquith,|
spoke at Reading. Chancellor Lloyd- j
George at Cardiff; John K. Redmond, j
leader of the Nationalist*., at Dublin; !
Winston Spencer Churchill, home sec- j
retary. at Colchester; AugtisRne Bir-'
Tell, chief secretary for Ireland, at j
Bristol; John Burns, president of the!
local government board, ai Batersea.
and Austen Chamberlain, at Asbton. I
lasues Are Narrowing.
The issues are narrow!in: daily.
The Conservatives made much of
home rule. They proclaim 'hat the
ptai of the Liberals for the reform
of the house of lords means a single
chamber government and put to the
front their new policy of referendum.
There 13 great fever among the
Liberals, a feature being the Hidden
reforming scheme on the part of the
lords, who claim that the Ijindsdowne
scheme is a snare that, the parties
would be unequally yoked together
under it, that Conservative measures;
would always sail smoothly through!
the house of lords, while tb,e refer-j
estShani would be invoked only for
Liberals' bills which were distasteful;
to the peers. Moreover they estimate
the cost r.' each appeal io the people
as lio.ooo.nnii.
Tariff Reform.
An interesting factional cleavage
leg* occurred in Balfour s party over i
tariff reform. The Spectator, which)
is the spokesman of the I'nionisis.
free traders, has proi?oscd that the,
tariff reformers pledge themselves to;
submit the question to a referendum.;
if the !*ar(y winr. it not being a lead-;
ing issue of the campaign.
Mr. Bal.'our tonight announced his |
willingness to leave it to a referee.
d im. In the meantime, the leaders
are making every apical to what in )
the United States would tic called the)
independent vote, believing that i: j
controls the issue.
The Irish Unionists sent to Mr
Balfour s meeting a message of defi-,
ar.ee to home rulers, and deputations]
from the Non-conformist I'niou'-t A
so< iation of England and Nt minis
egfl of non-Episcopal churches in Ire?
land, hive addressed Mr. Balfour in
opposition to home rule
Home Rule Opposed.
The n ading of the message srom j
lite Irish Unionists at Albert Hall
..!'..?! much enthusiasm.
"In all solemnity." said the mes
:agP. -we now declare that home rule
will bring Ireland not peace hut the
sword If an Irish parliament is set
up the Unionists of the south, allied
with he men of Ulster, wiii not
acknowledge its authority. They will
neither ohey Its decrees oor pny It
taxes." . . 4 _ , I
Mr Balfour pronounc ed strongly in |
favor of the referendom as the best
method of settling deadlocks between
the 'wo bouses without requiring the
reform of the house of lords and It
