"f do not see
that
the
Budget,

MR. W
CHURCHILL'S ADDRESS.
,
"The
time
has
come
to
deal with
the
House
of
Lords," remarks
Mr.
Winston Churchill
in an ad
dress issued yesterday
to the
electors
of
Dundee.If
.the
Budget action
of the
peers were
not
repudiated
by the
nation,
the
peers would become
the
masters
of the
State.The people
are of age,
continues
the
address,and
can act for
themselves. They have nothing
to
gain from
the
guidance, governance, restraint,
or
control
of the
lords,
LAST
NIGHT'S SPEAKERS.
THE
MARQUIS
OF
SALISBUKV
(U.), at Rugby.
What they wanted
in a
Second Chamber
was
inde-•pendence
and a
desire
to do the
utmost
to
interpretthe wishes
of the
country,
and not to be
waiters-tipon Providence, always thinking which
way the
cat "\vas going
to
jump,
SIR
EDWAKD GREY,
at Salisbury.—Those who
;based their arguments
for a
Second Chamber
on
the powers
of
t'iic House
of
Lords
as at
present(onj^tituted were
not
strengthening their case
for
a ,Second Chamber.LnRa.CiiARLES
BEEESFORD (U,),
at
Portsmouth,—The Mullinger scandal
was
very serious,
but hd
had several scandals
he
knew
of in
black
and
whiteas
bad as the
Mullinger case,
and if
things
did not
improve
lie
intended
to
bring every
one
forward.
LOUD
iS'EWTOX
(U.), at
Chester.—There
was no
reason
to
suppose that
the
House
of
Lords
was
acting contrary
to the
wishes
of the
people.
THE
DrxK-oi^
WKSTMISSTICR,
at
Chester.—Mr.Lloyd-(;eorge's speeches during
the
South Africanwar reflecling
on our
soldiers
did us no
good
in
South Afrii:a,
and his
Budget would
do no
goodin .England.
LORD TEXNYSO.V,
at freshwater.—The Austra-,
lian import duties
had
prevented- American dumping
and
given numbers
of
unemployed artificerswork.

POLITICAL
INVALIDS.
Still another
was
added to'the number
of
politicaliixyalitls yesterday,
in
l_:Ord Milner,
who has
sustained
a
slight injury
to his
knee,
and wa-s
unabletofulfil
his
engagement at'-Rughy last night.Mr. Ilaklane,
who is
suffering froi'ii
eye
troubles,passed
a
good night,
it was
stated yesterday,
but
was
not
quite
so
well.
The
inflammation
had un
fortunately inlhienced
the
other
eye and the
doctorwas
not so
safislied with
his
condition.On account
of the
serious illness
of
Karl Percyat Pans,
.it has
been found necessary
to
cancel
the
meeiing which
his
lordship
was to
have addressedat Alnwick
on
Friday.
ORATORS
AS
NUISANCES.
A liewperil, more effective than
the
old-fashipnudelection
egg,
will await outdoor speakers
if ihe
example
of the
Kensington Borough Council
is
generally followed.Many'complaints have been received
of the rii-
noyance caused
by
open-air political meetings
in
North Kensington
in the
vicinity
of
Campdcii.Technical Institute
and the
public library,
'i'he
council
has, in
consequence, decided
to
extend
tne
by-lawwhich forbids noisy hawking, musical
c:.-
.strnraents,
and the
like nuisances,
so
that
it
shallinclude street meetings.The matter
has
been referred
to the Law
Committee,
and
although "it
is not
likely that
the
prohibition "svill take effect before
the
general electionthe subject opens
up the
interesting question
:
When
is an
open-air meeting
a
noisy nuisance?

M,
Godard
in one of his
part*.at once thought that
he had
been poisoned.
But
on inquiry
as to the
food
he had
eaten,
he
abandoned that idea.After lingering
for the day in
great agony,
the
tenor died
in the

few
days
ago M.
Doudieux,
who is a
furniture manufacturer, received fVom Caen
a
hamperof mussels, purporting
to
come from
M,
Lame,his former partner. This greatly surprisedDoudieux,
as
they
had
parted
on
very
bad
tern'rs,Remembering that
two
years before,
his
wife
and
he
had
received
a
mysterious
box of
chocolates
at
Christmas, which,
on
being sent _
for

to

to

he had the

his

to
wonkier whether

had
found
on

had not
alsocontained poi.son,
and
they connnunicated .their tears
to the

he had
received
a
number
of
anonymous letters containing insulting remarks abouthis

M. Doudieux
had
before
his

the

had met
