IR. JOliN LLOYD MORGAN by his action in the debate on the Rating of Land Amend- ment Bill has acted up to those principles which he has always professed. He has always declared himself ready to support any measure calculated to benefit tenant farmers-and that irrespective of the Party by whom it is introduced. He supported the Bill because-although it barely touched the fringe of the difficulty-it would cer- tainly be of some benefit to the farmer. But the so-called friends of the farmers were shown up in their trne colours during the debate. Mr Lloyd Morgan spoke strongly j in favour of an amendment, which proposed that one-half of the rates should be paid by 1 the farmer and one-half by the landlord. He urged the extremely moderate character of the concession asked for and appealed to the Goverment to accept the proposal. But no; the 11 friends of the farmers went solidly into the Lobby against the amendment-which was of a character calculated to make the bill of more practical benefit to the tenant than it otherwise would. The Tory Party is indeed the farmer's friend —as long as the farmer rests content with being told that it is so. But it is evident that the friendship won't stand much of a strain. When, however, a General Election is at hand again, wo may expect to hear the same old hoary fables trotted out to do service for the time being. But they will certainly be pretty full of moths after being seven years locked by in the cupboard. The dullest political optics will then bo able to see daylight through them. in
