-===== THE TIMES" ON MR VI. H. GLADSTONE'S SPEECH.. ¡-\ U Ù ¡ V ¡'J r.: 0 o. ¡: 1:: U Ii. To-day's 'JFi-mcs, commenting on Mr W. H. Gladstone's speech at Hawardeu yesterday, says. I —" Mr Gladstone's title to repose was long ago amply made out, but his is a temperament which rather leads a man to seek a title to continued exertion, tie is net likciv to think seriously of retirement so long as that title is clear to himself, nor would the country wish him to do so while lie retains the strength of body and of will indispensable for the conduct of public affairs. It is quite possible for a man to retain any valuable aptitudes and striking- natural gifts, and yet to be sticken by age in tha power of grasping and combining facts, of form- ing momentous decisions, of facing great emer- gencies, or of dealing with the phenomena of a new time. All must hope that this has not hap- pened to Mr Gladstone, because no other can at present hold the reins of power with such autho- rity as his, or with such acceptance as he can command. But it cannot be denied that tho recent policy of the Government has been such as would naturally follow a partial failure of the innermost springs of action. If • that failure arises from no mere functional del rangement, but from organic change, then the question is no longer one of a title to repose, but of the right to postpone it. In deciding that, question aright, Mr Gladstone will discharge a- heavier responsibility and will perform a more eminent service to his country than any that have marked even his long and brilliant career."
