Before we leave Mr. Chamberlain's Glasgow speech, and all its

The Spectator

well-meant rhetoric and enthusiastic sophistries, we must comment on the very alarming passage dealing with Colonial manufactures, which evidently shows that Mr. Chamberlain...


The Spectator

O N Tuesday evening Mr. Chamberlain made his long- expected speech at Glasgow to an audience of some five thousand persons. The speech was oratorically a very fine effort, and...

On Wednesday Mr. Chamberlain continued his campaign by making a

The Spectator

speech at Greenock. The most telling pas- sage was that in which he appealed to the workman to hit back at the foreigner. " I do not know—there may be something wrong in my...

We have dealt with Mr. Chamberlain's main arguments elsewhere, and

The Spectator

noted the astonishing delusion that our trade is stagnant, which delusion is arrived at by the process of considering exports as the sole index of prosperity and by regarding...

Mr. Chamberlain calculates that under the new taxes, considered apart

The Spectator

from the reductions, it would cost the agricultural labourer 16i farthings more a week to live than it'does at present, and the artisan 19t farthings more. This, Mr: Chamberlain...

Mr. Balfour in his reply, dated October 3rd, expresses a

shrill and angry surprise at the Duke's communication. In view of much confidential correspondence and intimate conversation before September 16th, when the Duke decided to...

The Sultan recently received M. Constans, M. Lockroy, and their

wives, and spoke to them of the Macedonian ins urreo- tion. He said it would be repressed before long, and com- plained much of the bitterness of comment upon his acts....

These are very brave words ; but if Mr. Chamberlain

The Spectator

feels so terribly combative towards Powers like Germany who exclude our goods, may we ask him wby he was re- sponsible with the rest of the Cabinet for voluntarily per- forming...

The list of the reconstructed Cabinet was published on Tuesday.

The Spectator

It was delayed, Mr. Balfour says, by the negotiations with Lord Milner, which failed, and it bears evident marks of a kind of despair. Mr. Austen Chamber- lain, as was expected,...

Lady Victoria Buxton, who has come much in contact with

Turkish soldiers, sends to the Times of Wednesday a note- worthy appreciation of them. She says they are utter fatalists, refusing to take thought for the morrow, and accepting...

of the electors of the Forest of Dean in a very powerful and convincing speech. He showed that the founda- tion-stone on which Mr. Chamberlain rears his fantastic pile of...

The newspaper correspondents from the Far East all believe that
