London, Nov. 17 The personal ef
forts of King George to avert a po
litical crisis has failed today and Lib
erals have presented an ultimatum' to
the House of-Lords that unless the
' Lords consent before Nov. 29, to pass
a l bill limiting the Lord's power to
veto, parliament will dissolve and an
other election be ordered.
The king believes that the crisis
threatens the entire system of English
government and he is endeavoring
to effect a compromise.
Premier Asquith refused the offers
to compromise being confident his
position is unassailable. It is believ
ed the Lords are awakening to the
crisis and may surrender at least part
of their rights voluntarily In order to
Bave the government.
