The other day, Mr Spence, a typical Laborite of the early school, was relieved of his portfolio. He and his fellows wrought a patchwork political economy of their own, which would have made Adam Smith or John Stuart Mill gape, just as it didamaze Professor Marshall and other of the later economists who encountered it. But they believe in the "platform," were pre pared not only to stand by it, but fall fighting for it; for them in comparably defeat at the polls, party splits, than sacrifice of principles.
