LTA^H&'-f v '^P* \ ittr; ;jis fly .JOSEPH OttlOO, Staff Correspondent. {Copyright, 1«30. by N«w ?erk Sun.) 1XJNDON, June 6.—British politics share with British weather a common fickleness. A few weeks ago It was confidently predicted that an election would be held here not later than Sdptember, and possibly as early as May. Today no political wiseacre risks even a surmise as to when the next appeal to the electorate will be made. Things appear much too Indefinite. Something of consequence has happened. And that something, as every acute political student realizes, is bound up with the determination of Lloyd George to give the present Labor government more rope. Why the Welshman, after making life miserable for Ramsay MacDonald and his Labor government for many months, suddenly called oft his Liberal sharpshooters, remains somewhat of a mystery. Twice during consideration of the coal bill the Liberals brought the government within a few voted of defeat. Then when a real defeat on the third reading of that _ measure seemed imminent and Labor was ready to appeal to the country, the Liberal leader decided not to.bring about a showdown, basing his change of heart on his unwillingness to embarrass the govrnment while it was immersed in the naval conference. While such protestations sounded and read well, there were few who ascribed the Welshman's change of heart to a simple desire to strengthen the government's position when dealing with four other powers on the question of naval limitation. It was felt that something of a domestic nature lay at the root of the change of face. Just what it is remains even now a mystery, although it la conjectured that what the Liberal leader wants is the passing of an electoral reform measure—something in the nature of proportional representation or the alternative vote—which would add to the Liberal strength in the house of commons. But there is also the feeling that In face of the growing demand in the Tory party for an out-and-out protectionist platform the Welshman has come to the conclusion that terms must be made with the Laborlteg to keep this country a free trade citadel. The ex-premier's change of tactics was also undoubtedly influenced by the reluctance of many of his lukewarm Asqulthian supporters to continue sniping Labor when the inevitable end could be only an appeal to the country with no better chances of retrieving' the fortunes of the Liberal party. At any rate the Welshman now occupies the role of the good uncle of British politics, showering most of his consideration upon the Labor government now in office, and in so doing making more remote than ever the seemingly inevitable appeal to the voters. According to some hardbolled poll- | ticians, historians . of the future will i say of this particular phase of Brit- I ish political life that the Tories did | not really want to throw Labor out j because the Tories were not ready i for another election, and the Liberals did not want .to throw Labor out because the Liberals would not gain many seats in parliament and the Tories might come in again. But every student of politics knows that no one of .the three parties Is anxious to appeal to the voters now, or In the near future, for one reason, because the cost of the last election was so great that It depleted the funds of the parties, and because the electorate docs not appear to bo ripe for an election. In the case of the Tories there is also a pronounced difference as to the extent to which the party j should commit itself to a protectionist policy. I Whatever the future has In store for | him, Lloyd George, although "father" of the Iiguse of commons now, is beyond doubt still the finest debater In that assembly. His skill in that respect has been shown to better advantage in recent months than for a year or more. Ho was at his best In the recent budget debate, when a packed house roared with laughter at his sallies at the expense of Winston Churchill, Snowdon's predecessor as chancellor of the exchequer. NEW LOCOMOTIVES. NAGOYA, Japan, Juno 6.—A locomotive with two smokestacks has made its appearance on the Nagoya division of the imperial government raJlwnys.

GRUNDY'S EXPENSES ALL HIS OWN MONEY HARRISBURG, June 6.—That Senator Joseph R. Grundy expended only his own money in his losfng fight for nomination for his senate post, was revealed in his statement of his campaign expenses, filed yesterday. His total outlay was $382,260.

LONDON, June 6.—Newest in the line of fashion's raiment for society women are gowns of real gold and silver. Through a "molecular bombardment" system recently perfected, gold and silver are sprayed on gowns of velvet, georgettes and fur. Needless to say, since the gold and silver used on the gowns are 99 per cent pure, the dresses are very costly. SIX AT BIRTH. RIO DE JANEIRO—Senhora Hansen of the little town of Parlnolns, recently gave birth to six infants, all within an hour, and all boys. She is 23, and already has two other children, a girl and a boy.

LONDON, June 6.—fremler J. Ramsay MacDonald's Laborlte'government going Into its second year, faced the future today with several new names In cabinet and administrative posts. Premier MacDonald, in announcing the shifts In his official organization, revealed the creation of a new post —the appointment of J. H. Thomas as secretary of dominions. Thomas, formerly lord privy seal and unofficial minister of unemployment, under hla, new office will take over part of the tasks which until now were In charge of Lord Passfleld, who remains as secretary of colonies. A new minister of agriculture was appointed, Dr. Crlstopher Addison succeeding Noel Burton. The latter, recently elevated to the peerage, resigned, giving poor health as his reason. Vernon Hartshorn was named lord privy seal. Emanuel Shinwell was named to succeed Ben Turner as secretary of mines and grounds. Turner, in his resignation, said he wished to be released, now that the coal mines bill, long troublesome, was practically through parliament. The post left vacant by Dr. Addl- son's addition to the cabinet as agriculture minister will ,be filled by the Earl of De La Warr, named parliamentary secretary of that ministry. Lord Harley succeeds the early as parliamentary under-secretary of the war office. Stephen Sanders will be financial secretary of the war office, succeeding Shinwell. Premier MacDonald made the announcements Immediately after being received in audience by King George.
