Liberals Require the
Support of the Irish
to Hold Power
Tondon Jan 29The general elec
tions for members of the now parlla
meat arc at an end with the exception
of seven constituencies the returns
from which can be forecasted confi
dently and the tripartite coalition of
Liberals Laborites and Irish National
ists will find themselves In the ma
jority with un advantage of 122 seats
In this combination however there
are Included some ten OBrienltes and
Healeyitcs who are sworn opponents
of the budget and of any truckling to
any other Saxon party
The chief practical result of the
elections is the marked weakening of
the position of the ministry which at
tho time of the disHolution of the last
parliament commanded a clear majori
ty of 58 over all other parties com
jljpcd
J1 < 3 l
In the new house commonsthe
Liberals will be unable1 to legislate
without the support of the National
hits and the latter will be In a posi
tion to throw them out at any lime
they see fit unless the Unionists come
10 their help as Is conceivable under
certain circumstances
With two gains today the Unionists
scored i total of 126 Tho Liberals
captured the Jarrow division of Dur
ham County from the Labor party Riv
ing them a total of twenty gains The
Laborites have but a single gain and
many losses so they return to parlia
ment 14 short of their number In the
last house
There are rumors of tho possibility
of actual coalition between the Liberal
and Labor parties through tin
appointment of two Laborites in the
cabinet but the labor vote appears lo
bo too wedded to its Independence to
approve such a proposal
Sir Charles W Duke Liberal for
the Forest of Dean division of Clou

Kansas City Mo Jan 20A mod
ern Robin Hood Is plying his trade lo
Kansas City
When last seen he was
disappearing with big band of two Into
the woods on the east outskirts of the
city after having robbed J F Landcn
a trusted collector of a prominent lo
cal coal and grain company of 318 01
the firms money and refusing to taUt
5 belonging to Landen personally
The robbery occurred yesterday af
ternoon In n sparsely settled district
Landen while driving along the road
was held up by three men who after
relieving him of a wallet contafnfuR
the firms money ompha Ized their de
mands for more booty by shoving a re
volver In his face and ordering him lo
shell out some more
Landen produced a single fivedollar
bill protesting that It was his own
property and was all tho money he
had
hadWell
Well we dont want It then was
the surprising declaration of tho
spokesman Wo rob only the rich
keep It for your wifo and kldo
The robbers then bound Landen to
a tree and escaped Ho managed to
freo himself and give the alarm A
squad of mounted police scoured tho
woods until darkness but no traces of

London Tan 28Tho position ot

lonlfrts 2G4 Liberals 21P Laborites
40 Nationalists 77 Now that tho
electoral struggle Is on tho point of
closing the curious effect IK seen of
both conflicting parties claiming Ic
tory and both basing their claim with
plausible arguments broadly speaking
on tho question of free trade against
protection
It cannot be said that the elections
have decided anything and it Is dif
ficult to judgo whether the country as
a whole is tending one way or the
other
According to contentions of liberals
industrial commnnlttoa already haVe
decided to adhere to free trade an I
all that remains for them to do Is IH
complete the conversion of the agri
cultural populaUon According to con
I BervatlvoB the education of the peo
pie Is proceeding at a great paco and
It Is only a question of time unUI tho
