I Tin appearance imvo every Indication that his- quest hnd not been In vain. The fits! rutiject that the president mentioned was bin pleasant visit to Andrew Carnefrlo nt Rklbo Castle.

I'ntll recently their Information about conditions In the Vnlt ed States has been Inadequate. The people of Great Britain ore Rxeatly intereMed In Mr. Roosevelt, althouqh they hardly know whether to be nmued or Impressed by him. They do not seem to fee! any bitterness over the now famous Guildhall speech, because they nrc In the habit of exporting something outre from the former president. The Hnijllsh, fienerally, do not seem to understand the political situation In this country and, therefore, do not rIv Its proper Importance, hut they tnke (Trent Interest In tb outburst of Rooseveltlsm. Thc-y think Mr Koosnvelt a power, with out belnpr a convincing power. They think that he Is verRinK In his mind toward socialism, nnd for thlu reason the liberals sympathize with htm, while the conserva tive element Is afraid of him. The subject of Immediate Interest with the English press and people is Lord Cur 7on's proposed reform of Oxford so that the curriculum will conform to more r"ooern nnrs ci enucauon. nils, or course, moans thnt Creek will not be re quired for the arts defrree.
