What the Press Think of It. j "A BASTARD REFERENDUM." "Standard": There is no exaggeration in- saying that this involves a complete dhiange in our Conti;neiitail methods, and pomethiiv like a defiance of the authority, alike of the Crown, the OvbiIwt, and the Legislaitiure. It is a sort of bastard "Referendum" worked by a Caucus, for which no parallel exists. "BAND OF FREE RAIDERS." "Daily News" This Commission is a band of Free Raiders iOn the pulblic purse, majiy of whom, at Itptst, want to make something out of the "model tariff" tiiey propose to con- struct. We ask with siome nrnmese—Where is Mr. Alfred Ha.rmswortlh ? Is he not "in- terested," etc. ? And are there no other journa/listic coadjutors in the great scheme for assisting British imdustfrict?. For example, I we recall the useful existence of the Editor of "Isoflbel's Co kery," who represents, under a most fascinating title, a domestic (and aome- wiiat neglected) industry, seriously menaced by foreign competition. HE MIGHT DO WORSE. I "Morning Leeder" Mr. Chamberlain, hav- ing nomiiihted his pseuilo-Roytal Commission, has a.lso nominated liimiself lias own "Ambas- sador" to the Colonies. We are by no means sure that he might not do wense. His trip could hardly be more of a failure than tihat to Siouth Africa—and he has such a lot, to learn. LEADER IN ALL BUT NAME. "Daily Chronicle": Wrhat is happening is this tint the. Government is preparing to go to tlh.e country without any definite policy of its own at all, and that the real issue is beino- tRimed by one who exercises all the function's lof leadership without any of its official res- possibilities. "A PACKED JURY." The "Stanidiard" al-o says :—Instead of a packed jury, let. us have an open court of coni- petettt judges, armed with sufficient power j and proceeding in a regular, legal, and orderly Y fashion. And incidentally, the appointment of this Conimirisi'm would show that there is • fttill a tk)vernmen.t ir1 this country which is not yet preipared to abandon its functions to a private organisation, however active, and an individual statesman, however popular and able lie nil1 v be. A SPLENDID COMMISSION. "Morning Post": It is safe to say that noi such powerful Commission has ever before 'been consttitot-ed, and it is at once obvious that Mr. Chamberlain has tried to secure the most efficient arid typical men of business. The following gentlemen on Friday signi- fied their acceptance of Mr. Chamberlain's invitation to serve on the Tariff Commission: Mr. J. Henry Birchenough, head of the well-known firm of John Birchenough and Sons, silk manufacturers, of Macclesfield, Cheshire. A fellow of the Royal Colonial In-. stitute, member of the Council of the Statis- tical Society, and director of the Imperial Continental Gas Association and of the Brit- ish Exploration of Australasia (Limited). Mr. John Aithur Corah, one of the leading figur,, ;,11 the hosiery trade. Head of the Lticvster firm of Messrs. Cooper, Corah and Co. Mr. R. H. Reade, dhairman and managing director of the York-street Flax Spinning Company (Limited), of Belfast. On the board of the Belfast and Northern Counties
