That there should be dissatisfaction with the present Unionist leaders

who can wonder ? But the work of re-establishing the Party, for that is what it comes to, must not be began with any deletions, proscriptions or exclusions, but by applying the spirit of comprehension. The leaders cannot, of course, get men to act with them against their will, but there should be as few recriminations as possible and as much good will. It is obvious that Mr. Lloyd George cannot, after what has hap- pened, continue to lead a Constitutional and Unionist Party ; but everything must be done to prevent his leaving behind him a legacy of uncertainty, distraction and enmity. There is still time to save the Party, but it cannot be saved if we begin with an explosion.
