The Earl of Rosebery presided over a din&er of the Liberal League, held at the Hotel Cecil, and, in proposing the toast of Prosperity to the League," said that while not attributing excessive importance to bye-elections, he regarded the recent contest at Leeds, in the circumstances under which it had been fought, as an epoch-making election, a great triumph for Liberalism, and a damaging blow to the prestige of the Government. It was beginning to be judged by the country. With all his heart he hoped the end of the war would end the differences of the Liberal party; but he could not agree to abandonment of the principles of the League on Irish and other questions. He proceeded to criticise the Government in regard to their domestic policy, and in sketching the objects of the Liberal League mentioned that its members were determined that there should be no independent Parliament set up in Dublin. Mr. Asquith declared he would not include himself in any party for aggressive action against fellow-Liberals. "Their League offered no obstruction. Sir E. Grey having spoken, Mr. Barran gave a few words on the North Leeds election. The electors, he declared, had followed the advice of Lord Rosebery with the best results.
