A ROBUST EASTERN POLICY. Whatever may be the issue of the start- ling event that has precipitated a dangerous crisis in the East of Europe, Sir Edward 'Grey is to be congratulated on the firm Z, stand he has taken, and the frank and un- ambiguous terms in which he has expressed the policy of the British Government. He is also to be congratulated on the support of the Prime Minister, who has indeed been a little more emphatic than himself. We trust that all the members of the Cabinet will be in the like mind, so that the desire of he Opposition, to render patriotic and disinterested support to a correct foreign policy may not be counteracted by distracted counsels within the Cabinet. Few will dis- agree with the general principles laid down by Sir Edward Grey that no Power or State can alter an international treaty without the consent of the other paries thereto, and that the result of such action cannot be recognised until it has been regularised by the sanction of all the Powers concerned. More light will be shed on the attitude of the Government when the debates which will, of course, take place in both Houses of Parliament, can be held. In the mean- time it is a duty to scrutinise closely the course of events, because there have been occasions in the history of Radical Cabinets when the tail has wagged the dog when the Government, setting out with a firm intention to uphold the honour of the coun- try, ha" been diverted from its purpose by threats from the tail of the party, and has collapsed into ignoble surrender, humilia- ting to the country, and disastrous to its best interests.
