circular, Sir Henry resigned on tho
urgent solicitation of his medical ad
Vjsos. As the constitution provides
no"autoruatlc successor, it falls on tho

The resignation of Sir Henry Camp-bell-Bannermnn,
tho first Liberal
prime minister of England since Lord
Rosebery gave up office in 1895, has
its dramatic phase, for as ho passes
from tho stage, tho mixed forces
which ho held together as a party ap
pear also to he approaching tho end
of political power. Tho Bannerman
government, it should be stated, com
bined too many factions and too many
fads; all tho elements of opposition to
conservatism and of discontent united
to make common cause against the old
government, and when Joined together
in an administration n working team
of Homo Ruleis, Laborites, Socialists,
Liberal Imperialists and Llttlo En
glanders was found well nigh Impossi
ble. But it speaks much for Banner
man's leadciship that the disintegra
tion of his party has gone on so
much more swiftly since the attack
of heart trouble, last fall In Bristol,
where ho had gone to make a political
speech, which removed him from tho
possibility of active leadership.

Mr. Harrlman, in his answer, denied
that he, with Jacob Schiff, Otto 11.

that he is president and the other men
