free from old trammels, and new questions derived from more recent emotions will take the place of the decaying 'platforms' of the past. Even before the war Home Rule was dead. It has been difficult for some time for the one party to flog the dead horse, and, to tell the truth, not very easy for the other party to fight him. Leading statesmen recognise the new position of affairs, and Lord Rosebery proposes to construct out of the ruins of Gladstonianism a 'Liberal Imperialism,' of which the distinctive marks have not yet been divulged to the public. Mr. Gladstone, it will be observed, not less than Home Rule, is dead and buried.

The merit of Imperialism' clearly depends upon what is meant by it and what is done with it. Our national safety lies in our strength and in the knowledge of the whole world that we can defend ourselves. So far we are all 'Imperialists.' But we want the whole world to recognise also that we are not actuated by unjust or aggressive aims; that we love peace, that the interest of the British Empire lies in peace, and that we have no intention of abandoning the counsels of three generations of statesmen in order to enter upon a rivalry of military ambition with the great powers of the world. We do not wish to rest our peaceful relations with the rest of Europe merely upon the fear of our power. Our statesmen have to see that our national character and good name are also held in respect.

No. CCCXCIII. will be published in July.
