11 — „ CHAMBERLAIN'S REPLY. Rosebery '"Imperfectly Informed on the Issue Mr. Chmberlain replies to the letter of Lord Rosebery in the "Times'' as follows :— "Sir,-I welcome the letter of Lord Rose- bcry in your issue to-day as indicating a not her change of front on his part which will carry him back to the patriotic attitude adopted by him in 1888, when he was ready to die for the cause of Imperial federation, and when he did not believe that 'you can obtain the great boon of a powerful Empire encircling the globe, with a bond of com- mercial unity and peace without some sacri- I fice on your part.' "I observe that Lord Rosebery complains that what he calls the obvious suggestion of' a conference was not made beforp but he docs not explain why, in view of my neglect, he did not himself supply the deficiency. I admit it seemed to me desirable in the first place to test the opinion of the country on the offer which, in spite of Lord Roseberv's denial, I still maintain was made by the Colonies on the occasion of the Conference of premiers at the time of the Coronation. "This point, however, is not of import- ance, since 1 hope that we have now arrived at the same conclusion on the main proposal. But I am afraid that. Lord Rosebery is still imperfectly informed as to the real it-sue. 1 entirely agree with him that 'the wishes of the colonists themselves should be an essen- tial condition, and I trust that when these wishes have been expressed, whether before or at, the conference, he will be prepared to give due weight to them. In this case, hew- even, he must not at the outset bar out of consideration what will certainly be the main object of the colonists if they accept the proposal—viz., to seó whether or rot, in return for the preferences they have already given, and are prepared to give to us, we, on our part, are ready to make that sacrifice of our economic orthodoxy which Lord Ros<> bery contemplated in 1888, and to recipro- cate with a preference on those products of the Colonies, including corn and meaft, the sale of which they desire to extend in this country. "To suggest a conference on preference, while, rigidly excluding all reference to taxes on food, would he in present circumstances a childish and almost an insulting proposi- tion."
