We had been given a very good world, and if a mess had been made of it, it was man's fault and not God's. There was plenty of sunshine in the world, plenty of water, and plenty of land. There was a burst of laughter at the reference to land, whereupon Dr. In gram said, "Oh, Mr Lloyd George and 1 know each other; we are very good friends." He proceeded to declare that if they spoiled the whole thing by crowding in one place and having star vation wages, and by allowing people to live in places not fit for dogs, then that was not'God's fault.

INDIANS IN SOUTH AFRICA PICTUIIKSQUK ADDITION. Whether lii« presence in the coun try is Jikcd or not, it cannot be de nied that the Indian immigrant often adds to the pieturcsqueness of the South African scene (.-"ays tlie "West minster Cassette").

HOME RULE SOLEMN NATIONAL, CONTRACT. Speaking at a meeting in favor of Home Rule at Alloa last night (says the "Morning- Post" of November 22), Sir John Redmond, M.P., said that he coulil never have been a Homo Ruler Tor one moment unless Home Kule to his mind meant a free Ireland-free for all creeds, free in all secular and reli gious matters from any spiritual domi nation, either from Rome or any place else. The truth was-and this was the best of all safeguards, and the history of the world showed it-bigotry could not long live in an atmosphere of freedom, and if there was to-day any illegitimate exercise of political power in Ireland and for his own part he did not admit it-such illegitimate exercise of politi cal power never could survive the es tablishment of a free Parliament SENSE OF IRISH. Protestants, therefore, might feel" se cure, first m the stringent provisions of the Bill, then in the spirit of this great Protestant nation, which would be able, at any moment, to stretc...
