LO.VDON, July 27. (Special Cable.)
Now that the success of Sir Edward
Carson's policy of direct action in defy
ins parliament is emulated with im
provements by the labor triple alliance,
a marvelous awakening is taking place,
especially among those who aided and
abetted him in his conduct and who
tiow see the tremendous evils such con
duct has brought in its train.
Sauce good enough for the Irish na
tionalist goose is by no means relished
when served up with the English gan
der. Premier Lloyd George, whose most
recent declaration on the Irish policy
was in effect a ratification of Car
eon's method for Ireland, has now no
opportunity to certify to his consist
ency by supporting direct action when
applied to English politics. Lord Jus
tice O'Connor, in opening the Cork as
sizes, flung a bombshell Into the gov,
ernment ranks by declaring that overt
action is not necessary to constitute
treason or felony, the mere threat to
act being sufficient. The threat al
ways has been sufficient to bring heavy
tsentences of penal servitude on Fenians
and Sinn Feiners, while Orangemen
have indulged in it without punish
ment. Georse Admit SsccfM,
Premier George has just admitted
the success of Carson's direct-action
policy by indorsing its object. One of
the secrets of rapid growth of revolu
tionary doctrine in England is to be
found in the fact that the people re
gard the present ministry with con
tempt and the present house of com
mons with disgust.
The premier is an inveterate oppor
tunist. He has undermined all respect
for his government, which is not sur
prising, for no one can really tell at
this moment if Premier Lloyd George
will come out on the side of estabSX
lished order or of revolution.
Ytussian intervention, on which the
cabinet seesaws from day to day, is
now nakedly sought to be justified by
the pleading that substitution of some
government for that of the bolsheviki's,
whether reactionary or otherwise, does
not matter so long as British interests
in Russia may be assured against any
ultimate rapprochement between Rus
fcia and Germany.
Churchill In Advfotaronx.
Winston Churchill is the most out
spoken protagonist for the continua
tion of the Russian expedition. His
taste for adventurous enterprise marks
him out as the leader in any desperate
measures that may seem necessary to
repress the subversive policy which
the liritish workingman has adopted
from Carson ism.
Today a fresh political sensation is
sprung by the revelation that certain
ministers have been increasing their
holdings of Russian securities since the
policy of intervention was adopted.
This may be taken as evidence of their
confidence in their policy, but the
workingmen will interpret it as proof
that the country is to be made to pa
in men and money for the personal
grain of the ministers.
toek Iluylng Alleged.
Chancellor of the Exchequer Austin
Chamberlain, one of the founders of the
Anglo-Russian bank, has increased his
holdings in one of the great Russian
mining companies by from liOOU to 3U0U
shares. Secretary Walter Long, orig
inal holder of 5011 shares in the Anglo
Russian trust, bought oUUO more seven
weeks after the armistice. The son of
this minister was largely interested in
what was known as the '"cellulose scan
dal," into which the cabinet ordered
inquiry by a committee several months
ago. Nothing lias since been heard of
the committee or the inquiry, although
there has been considerable inquiry for
Urothej-s of Mr. Geddes, minister of
transportation and president of the
board of trade, bought shares in the
Kussian Kysh tin corporation last Jan
uary. These transactions are doubtless cap
able of innocent explanation, but now,
while the working class regards the
rulers with sensitive suspicion, they
are almost as indiscreet as Premier
Lloyd George's famous deal in Marconi
