The audience numbered thousand. Mr. Asquith, who had au enthusiastic reception, said that amid many features in a political situation which was depressing and even -aisqtueung there was one which was full ot cation and of hope. Jl was that with a eactionary House ot Commons, and, he was Sony to say,' a slufraish electorate, we, l.ail abundant evidence that Liberalism in its essence was never stronger and never had greater attractions than it had to-day for the young on whom the promise of the future lay. (Cheers.) It was two years since the close of the war, and the prospect which presented itself to every intelligent spectator was one of unrelieved gloom. There was only one course which was worthy of the name of statesmanship. It was to wind up by the authority of the League of Nations the wars and the causes of war that still affected largo parts of the East of Europe, uili-wesi. "Hi account, that of a mode- .1; ;iiiJ 1 rustwon hy man. needs no em-.-ii(lrn. Hp. lias ab'vidy put it in the form : an affidavit and htuuck by its accuracy.

The two brothers were made to stand VR1! the time of payment, uiaiiiiss lkjui ioz rupara-Liou anu maemui-iies under the Treaty of Versailles, to hold th6 door open for those territorial adjustments in Central and Eastern Europe which experience had already shown to be needed, and to resume in the fullest and freest sense trading relations with Germany and Russia. He welcomed the step taken of abandoning the right given by the Treaty of Versailles to seize the properly of German nationals in. British territory anil under British control. He did not hesitate to say, proceeded Mr. Asquith, that unless we mended our ways we were on the higlx road to national disaster. He dwelt on the large sums which had been squandered to overthrow Bolshevism in Russia and on our policy in Mesopotamia. It was time for them "to wash their hands of the whole of this business. Let us give the Arabs power to govern themselves, but do not let us. in the suspected pursuit of material interests of our own, besmirch the honourable record which we had justly maintained when we entered the war. Then we had 49,000 troops in Ireland and they were being maintained at a cost of 1,150,000 a month. A State of Civil War. Mr. Churchill had said that, troops had to be. somewhere (.laughter) and .that they might, as well bo in Ireland as in any other part of the United Kingdom. ' Yes," said Mr. Asquith, " but why are they there and what are they doing there? What is the task upon which they are engaged there It is no use disguising the fact, that troops are hi Ireland because in. Irelaiidthcr is a state of civil "war. I 'am amazed and ashamed at the state of public opinion- on this matter. It. seems to me ,as though the intelligence'of the British people were, nan asleep, as tnongn their consciences were blunted, as though then- soul were half dead. (Cheers.) Never in the whole history of our relations wiui xreiana nas tne siaie 01 things been such as it is to-day. It is no exaggeration to say that the British Government has ceaserl to be operative. Over a greater part of Ireland it does not operate at all. It is not re cognised by the majority of the people. They have established a government of their own; which has its own courts, its own police, and its own army. At the recent uoumy council elections in " Ireland, of the 35 Irish councils .29 returned Sinn Fein councillors. All the -muni cipalities', with two exceptions, Teturned Sinn jem candidates. -Those local autnoritxes reruse to. fecoraise the Iri6h Executive. The British I Government has no organ of any. fciud of local padmlnistratioit upon which, it cari depend. Its support consists of these 43,uw soldiers ana some 12,000 or more armed police. f . Under these conditions there has grown up, as was inevitable, guerilla warfare between these two different authorities. There liave been horrible outrages and brutal murders of policemen and civil servants of the Crown.' No one denies; it, and it is a calumny to represent us of the Liberal party, who are in favour of .wide-reaching measures of extended freedom and who denounce the hideous brutal policy of official reprisals, as if we were apologists for these outrages. We had heard a great deal about "provocation, about hot blood, about the police and the military actiing in self-defence, and of passion being caused by seeing their comrades done to death. If that were a, true description we . should ' have indulgence and consideration, but that ii not the true descripi tion. Outrages have been' committed in the name of, or at any rate by the officers of, the 'law in the uniforms of soldiers and policemen-outrages not committed in hot blood, but calculated, planned, and organised, ana or mm. an umiuuwii . w, . . - In the pouriug ram with their faces to the wall :,u;i.k 1.11 creameries.

They told her her brother had something to do with:;tho ' bobbing '' of tho other girls. in tho village. To Mrs. Brady they said that if her son Steve had not cleared out of the place within 24 hours ho was doomed, and would be shot at sight. I saw and spoke with the two girls whoso hair had been bobbed, and can testify to the thoroughness, it not to the artistry, with which it was done.

The Truth of the Charges. ' The favourite apology of members of the Government is that these accounts come from what are called tainted Sinn Fein sources. Nothing is more untrue. It rests upon the evidence of perfectly independent, honest, and responsible correspondents not only of the English but of the American, and. European press, who are in Trfthmd. have seen with theHr own eyes what is going on." and have no motive' or inducement to pervert or distort the truth. It Tests upon the testimony of friends of bur own Englishmen and Scotsmen of undoubted veracity and reanonsihilitv. who also have eeii with their own nvs things' which have taken place. It Tests also upon the sworn testimony which has hf-fln eriveri in the Irish courts; themselves by witnesses who hare appeared in. claims made for compensation, for malicious injury. There can be no shadow of a doubt that there -is an overwhelming and irrefutable case of systematic and calculated outrage on the part of officers of the Crown. Mr. Asquith then referred to the case of Bal- briggan, where, he . eaid, two men were taken out and-murdered in -cold blood.-. That was not denied. When he asked the.

Cheers MR. MARK HAMBOURG'S RECITAL. We should like sometime to hear Mr. Hambourg jilay the "Meistersiugei '' Overture on the pianoforte, just to see how much Wagner would crumple, up before his onslaught, or how-far his manhood would stand the test of such handling. The child Beethoven, who wrote the "Waldstein" Sonata, suffers a gocd deal of be-littlcment from his mighty accentuations, and may be seen definitely to give way under theim The man Brahms, on the other hand, stands the test oE- Mr. Hambourg's attack amazingly well, ami even takes on an additional show of strength from the compelling, energy of -the player. We do not come to the end of him. A reading of the composer's Handel Variations by Mr. Hatnbourg still stands in the memory as a splendid thing after many years, and iast night the second hook of his Paganini Variations were as gorgeous. Brahms here goes, so to speak, a little beyond hiinself, and instead of wearing his own style takes on that of a composer extravagant and fantastic, and sets, the force of the' intellect and of a classic determination against the extravagance and wizardry of the world's super-violinist. Mr. Heil'ctz, only the night before, had shown us what a lean and yet beautiful thing Pagan ini's own Variations on this air might bo madc. Mr. Hambourg set. about showing us what a stout figure a sterner musician's emulation of them might become. The Brahms version in Mi. Hambourg s hands was not a whit less fantas-1 tic or extravagant, than the magic of Mr. Heife.lz: and, in the musical sense, how vastly it .transcended ! We should, not like to say that Brahms conceived the Variations just in such a manner; but we can imagine the composer beside himself with delight and wonder at the extravagance of which his musie was proved capable. For here there is no question of a fastidious musical expression: the Variations are a challenge to the easy extravagance of mere virtuosity, and an effort by such tran-scendant treatment as that of Mr. Ham'bpuxg proved victorious and supreme. 1 Cesar Franck. in his. Prelude. Chorale, and Fugue, was a mere tortured criminal by com parison. The vast harp of his extended ohords had its withers wrung 'tmtif the 'listener felt pained. For Cesar Franck must be set hi mellow tones, and have the haze of distance about him. before we can feel his romantic power. ' Chopin, fragile, but yet fahtastique, by his sheer swiftness escapes annihilation, and becomes a Jew with -unbounded Wealth to squander and display. His Etudes can hardly be taken too fast, and if they live in their details and their melody rather than in any comprehensive- bravura of 'handling - or style, they still yield an lamazing opulence however handled. The black-note istudy " was encored last night, and the notes lay as if strewn on a vast and countless heap before us. Move wonderful still, to our ear, waB the speed at which the second C major 'Study in broken chords was taken, and here the musie was hroueht into life bv the speed. The light fellows, Bavel and Debussy!:. were robbed of their sentiment, but Bavel especially gained more by being pranked out at- such a gorgeous speed than he had of sentiment to sacrifice in return. Debussy" became , a little, unreeog nisable before Mr. Hambourg . had done with him, having been knocked off his feet, first in this way and then in that.- .7; Arnold Bax in his " Whirligig" was' like a top that is .made to soin until it sleeps, majestic and profound. Listeners may have doubted Mr. Hambpurg's classics, at least so far as Franck and Beethoven were concerned, but . they could hardly withhold admiration at the riot of fontjistie. execution with which the recital ended. The ' Buins of Athens " Match by Beethoven and the Mock. Morris of Grainger, both played in the manner of the ' March Past," made a : tour de foret of - spectacular .rntinn. as encores, and the recital, ended amid the greatest ; enthusiasm. Mr. Ham goes on aworld-tour. S. L.
