We cannot allow the appointment of Sir Edward Carson as
a Lord of Appeal to pass without offering him our good wishes. His new work, though important, and it may be arduous, will be a comparative rest after his fiery, adventurous, and most hard- working political career. He has been the most trusted repre- sentative whom Ulster has ever had. Had he preferred personal ambition to the cause of Ulster he could have had almost any position in the State which he cared to name. Instead of that he has passed nearly the whole of his life in devotion and loyalty to his friends and his ideals. Of course upon his appointment as a Lord of Appeal the protests which were only to be expected from certain quarters have been _made. It has been said in many Liberal papers that there is nothing to choose between the threatened rebellion of Ulster and the rebellion of Sinn Fein.
