The Home Secretary attended a Conservative meeting on Tuesday evening at Clitheroe, and re- plied for a vote of confidence passed in the Government. He confined his observations principally to a defence of the foreign policy of the Government. The action of the Government was based on the main- tenance of treaties, and he said that the point of divergence between Mr. Gladstone and the Government was that while they were determined to prevent either Russia or any of the signatory Powers to the Treaties of 1856 and 1871 violating the provisions of those treaties unless with the con- sent ef all the other signatory Powers, Mr. Glad- stone would have allowed Russia to break them. Such a course would have destroyed the value 6f treaties altogether. If they had gone to war the end of all war was a treaty; but if treaties were not to be held inviolable, what was their use ? In concluding his address the right hon. gentleman declared that it was useless for the Liberal party to seek the support of the nation when, owing to their divisions, they could not develop any policy.
