If It comes to a strike, which now

LIVERPOOL Dec 10. Premier As
quith has pronounced home rule for
Ireland the leading: issue in the present
campaign. This momentous pronounce
ment was made In a small schoolhousa
of a remote village in Scotland, but al
ready It has stirred the whole British
Islands, and eclipsed all other issues In
The pronouncement waa made In an
swer to a "heckler." as the typical dis
turber of British political meetings Is
"Is it the truth," asked this heckler,
"that, if the Liberal government is re
turned to power in this election, it will
give Ireland a measure of Tiome rule?"
"My reply,", said squlth, "is, 'It is.' "
Reply Aids Redmond.
The precision, firmness and candor of
this answer on the part of a man so
frigid and cautious and bo determined
to, concentrate this election on the
House of Lords comes as a thunderclap
to all of the enemies of the Liberal
party, and It Is a great aid to Red
mond's fie-bt. -
Though Redmond was well aware
that it was Asquith's Intention to give
Irish heme rule an immediate chance,
the carpers and factlonlsbs in Ireland
have been Insisting that Asquith was
a trickster and that Redmond was his
dupe. But now even the Dublin Inde
pendent, chief supporter of the Healy
faction, confesses that Asquith's
declaration leaves no more to be said,
and Is entirely satisfactory.
Thus home rule at last Is unde
niably before the eyes of all men
and Is definitely In sight. For the
general election practically Is over,
and the government will return with
unbroken strength to tha House of
Commons. The second declaration
against the Lords ends their existing
The Tories, however, are continuing
to use every device possible to evade
this final and crushing verdict. A. J.'
Balfour, leader of the opposition, who
in vain threw over hla protection of
the House of Lords, and even the
plural voting, which robs the Liberals
of Innumerable seats, in the effort to
scape defeat, now follows another
line of retreat.
Balfour practically demands a third
election, following closely the lead of
Lord Rosebery. who declared that If
the Liberals lost even five seats It
would preclude them from proceeding
witfi the attack on the Lords.
Thlej ridiculous pretension already is
being laughed out of court I have no
doubt that the Liberals will propose an
anti-veto bill on tho flrst night of the
new Parliament., will proceed with it
promptly and when it Is rejected by the
Lorda will call upon the 'King to create
enough new peers to carry the measure
through the second chamber.
Veto Power Seems Doomed.
Tie King undoubtedly will not .cefuse
this request. But If he should. Premier
Asquith must, by his pledges, Immediate
ly ttslgn and leave Balfour face to face
with a hostile majority in the House of
Commons, which would throw him "out
of office the next day.

Guy W. Talbot, President of LocaJ
Corporation and Larger Concern,
Announces Big Improvements i
for JText Year.
Expenditures aggregating $2,250,000 will
be made by the Portland Gas & Coko
Company and the Paciflc Power & Light
Company during the coming year, ac
cording to announcement made yester
day by Guy W. Talbot, president of both
Of this sum $750,000 will ba spent in
extending the mains and improving tha
plant of the Portland Gas & Coke Com
pany. The remaining $1,500,000 will be used
in the further development of the light
and power company's service along tha
Columbia and Yakima rivers In Eastern
Washington, making possible the Irriga
tion of a large area.
Work on the local Improvements will
be started early In 1911. About 200 miles
of gas mains will be laid. Additions will
be made to the local generating plant to
accommodate the Increased service.
The new mains, so far as possible, will
cover those districts In which the city
is planning hard-surface improvements,
but many of the suburban streets will
also be served.
Tons of Pipe Ordered.
"It will be our aim to serve all of tha
outlying sections," said Mr. Talbot. "Wa
already have planned to serve Monta
villa. Rose City Park, the Ladd tract,
Fulton, Brooklyn, Buchs, the territory
south of Powell Road, Woodlawn, tha
district north of Hawthorne" avenue, tha
Simon district, the streets north of Clin
ton street and south of Tibblts.
Orders have been placed for 12,000 or
13.000 tons of steel pipe with the United
States Cast Iron Company. Much of this
will be delivered within tha first few
months of the year." v
Included in the territory in which new
pipes will be placed are from 50 to 75
mllesthat are not in need of enlarged
mains at this time, but upon which the
city contemplates hard-surface paving.
The Improved service will be Installed
to preclude the necessity of tearing tha
streets when business demands tha
Plant Large Enough.
Nearly all of the money appropriated
for this work will be spent in the ex
tension of the mains and very little will
be required in improving the generating
plant, as that is large enough to accom
modate the present and Immediate fu
ture needs of the company. It is so
constructed that additions can ba built
at any time they are required.
While It may be Impossible to carry out
all of the proposed improvements during
the coming year, the full J750.000 appro
priated will be available, and that which
Is not used in 1911 will be carried over
Into the following year and the Improve
ments completed then as fast as they can
be taken up.
