HEREDITARY SCHEME HILLED MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS WILL BE VOTED FOR IN FUTURE. Premier Asquith's Government Ob tained Lease of Life Until After Easter People Object to Two General Elections in So Short a Time. «Ety Associated Press.? London, Feb. 28.—In the session of the house of commons today, the outcome of which was awaited as eagerly as the denounment of a most exciting tragedy by all the member* of both houses able to pack themselv es into the chamber, Premier As quith's government obtained a lease of life until after Easter. This was the gift of the conservatives, who were so anxious to avoid two general elections successively within so brief a period that they accepted the prem ier's program without calling for a vote. When the house of commons meets after Easter it will take up the strug gle to revolutionize the British govT ernment system. Resolutions will be presented to deprive the house of lords of all authority over finances, and also of the power of vetoing the measures of the lower house, leav ing to the lords only the functions of delay and discussion. If this plan succeeds, the govern ment propsoes next year to proceed with the transformation of the house of lords from a hereditary to a dem ocratic body. Such was the program that the prime minister unfolded and he and Chancellor Lloyd-George declared that the government staked its ex istence on it. In the meantime, the budget stands sidetracked. It is likely that when it is taken up it will combine the budgets of two years, shorn of the features objec tionable to the Irish .members. Before the Easter adjournment, the house of commons will deal with resolutions enabling the govern ment to continue to borrow money, and the appropriation bill, for the army, navy and other departments.

The Irish members had withdrawn from the house for a discussion of policy when the program was accepted. They had, however, decided to refrain from voting.
