Truth Is Revealed by the Futile At
tempt of Bonar Law to Commit
the Tory Party to That
Certain of our self-constituted po
litical ndvisurs assured us only a few
years ago that England was on tho
eve of a return to tho protective policy.
This Interesting prediction is contem
porary with "tho Russian advnnco,''
over which so much flowery, rhetorlo
was skilled., OtLcourai. Jt was pointed
odt by otliora that. Et-Liort' waa not
likely to backtrack on tho tariff Ques
tion, slnco sho could not afford tho
luxury of a protectlvo tariff. But'no
such consideration had any weight
with those who wero euro thnt tho
British government was about to "take
over" tho Dlngloy bill. Our instruct
ors had made up their minds that tho
thing was true and, of course, that
made It true.
Wo havo had a good deal of light on
tho subject In the last few daya. Tho
leador of tho Tory party, Mr. Law,
made a speech In which he advocated
a roturn to protectionism. The result
must havo been astonishing to Mr.
Law. Before ho spoko tho Liberal
party was wondering how long It
would bo abto to maintain Its hold on
tho government. Important by-olec-tlona
had gone against It. There was
strong opposition to tho homo rulo
bill, Lloyd-Georgclsm had angered nnd
disgusted many. At this Juncture tho
Tory leador camo to tho rescue with
his plea for protectionism. It split
his own party, which has been likened
to a defeated and routed army. Low'b
lendershlp 1b believed to bo at on end.
Even now the party Is practically
without a leader, as it Is without a
And all this has como from nn at
tempt to commit a great party to pro
tectionism. Tho peoplo of England
have listened for almost ten years to
arguments In favor of taxed food. It
wns supposed that Joseph Chamber
lain, with his scheme of Imperial fed
eration, had mado groat headway. High
tariff shouters in this country, as wo
havo tseon, woro sura that England had
been converted to "tho American
Idea." Now tho end has como, and
our cousins are still unconverted.
As a matter of fact, the tendency Is
away from high tariffs. In Germany
tho peoplo are bitterly protesting
agalnBt tho protectlvo taxes on food.
Wo In this country have Just been
through a campaign In which tho tariff
was the leading Issuo, and on which
tho peoplo voted against high protec
tion. The demand here, as In other
lands, is for cheaper food and cloth
ing. It Is, therefore, surprising that
a man supposed to be fit to lead a
great party, should thus sot himself
against what la practically a world
opinion, and hope to win by eo doing.
