T II 1 u i m %  N 1: Zbe TErtbune Stvurdav April 26. 1913. 1 In' interest in the Marconi affair, in so far as it affei ts the reputation of certain Cabinet Ministers, is dj ing out. It is unfortunate that much of our information in this case has come from the "New York Hi aid" which appears to have distorted the facts, and treated the whole thing with disgusting lev11v and cvnicism. The best Unionist papers in I idon have acted honourably in the matter. The sai can be said of Lord Rol ert Cecil whose luct on the Marconi Com mittee did him much credit Mr.Strachey of the "Spectal i %  not come well out of the business. His dislike of Mr. Lloyd George led him at an earl iei to give too ready ere. dence to unproved tales about him and has made him top tardy in adjusting himself to the new conditions ere ited by the new evidence brought forward l>\ the baited Ministers. I le has acted a Pharisee. As Sir W. Robertson Nicoll caustically puts it : He has ••made such a display "f moral shirt front as we ha\ e seldom witnessed." If i ourse the insinuations of up) ion ha > ilutel) col* laps,-,|, b u | m some quarters a chai i i>l imbling in shares has been substituted. Even on that point Mr. i lerbert Samuel i e. Mi Rufus Isaacs also if standing alone, would have been allowj-d to have an easy time of it after having made Ins statements before the Committee. But it is Mr. Lloyd George that the eimny wants to i^et at, and a certain sei <>f venomous 'Tones will keep up theii \ ile work as Ion 1 ,; as they can. I he Chancellor is accusi d of nbling because he bought A merit an Mar. oni shares and sold some ol them at a profit befi ire the pi ice fell. What are tl lie took ovei from Sir K'ufi; i • ertain numbei of these Amei i< an shares. His 'i ime t'' him and told him ne had mad' 1 a bad i'lvi merit and advised him to sell out. < )n hisad\ it e Mr. Lloyd < %  < orge Bold some of the shares at .i pro lit. But, contrary to Mi. I ily Ins broker's advice, lie bought some more shares latei and holds II, em still U an III merit. On the two transactions he has lost, after striking the balance, about £500. He sold some shares because an expert told him he had made a bail investment, again he appears to have bought moreshan against Mr. Daly's advice because he thought them worth holding as securities that would la' a dividend. Mr. Lloyd G mrge handed in a private stab '" ; c > m mitti e of his iinan ial c mdi'ion •A inch Lord Robert Ci i d perused) and stated publii ly al inquiry that he had a pi ivate in come of only '_ 1 1 1 a year, and a house that ci isi i was built out ol -alary.

1 In' interest in the Marconi
affair, in so far as it affei ts the
reputation of certain Cabinet
Ministers, is dj ing out.
It is unfortunate that much of
our information in this case has
come from the "New York
Hi aid" which appears to have
distorted the facts, and treated
the whole thing with disgusting
lev11v and cvnicism.
The best Unionist papers in
I idon have acted honourably
in the matter. The sai can be
said of Lord Rol ert Cecil whose
luct on the Marconi Com
mittee did him much credit
Mr.Strachey of the "Spectal
i not come well out of the
business. His dislike of Mr.
Lloyd George led him at an earl
iei to give too ready ere.
dence to unproved tales about
him and has made him top tardy
in adjusting himself to the new
conditions ere ited by the new
evidence brought forward l>\ the
baited Ministers. I le has acted
a Pharisee. As Sir W.
Robertson Nicoll caustically
puts it : He has made such a
display "f moral shirt front as
we ha\ e seldom witnessed."
' If i ourse the insinuations of
up) ion ha > ilutel) col*
laps,-,|, bu| m some quarters a
chai i i>l imbling in shares has
been substituted. Even on that
point Mr. i lerbert Samuel
i e. Mi Rufus Isaacs also if
standing alone, would have been
allowj-d to have an easy time of
it after having made Ins state-
ments before the Committee.
But it is Mr. Lloyd George that
the eimny wants to i^et at, and a
certain sei <>f venomous 'Tones
will keep up theii \ ile work as
Ion1,; as they can.
I he Chancellor is accusi d of
nbling because he bought
A merit an Mar. oni shares and
sold some ol them at a profit
befi ire the pi ice fell. What are
tl lie took ovei from Sir
K'ufi; i ertain numbei
of these Amei i< an shares. His
'i ime t'' him and told
him ne had mad'1 a bad i'lvi
merit and advised him to sell out.
< )n hisad\ it e Mr. Lloyd < < orge
Bold some of the shares at .i pro
lit. But, contrary to Mi. I ily
Ins broker's advice, lie bought
some more shares latei and
holds II,em still U an iii
merit. On the two transactions
he has lost, after striking the
balance, about 500. He sold
some shares because an expert
told him he had made a bail in-
vestment, again he appears to
have bought moreshan against
Mr. Daly's advice because he
thought them worth holding as
securities that would la'
a dividend.
Mr. Lloyd G mrge handed in
a private stab '" ; c>m
mitti e of his iinan ial c mdi'ion
a inch Lord Robert Ci i d perus-
ed) and stated publii ly al

the fact that the budget showed an
expenditure of upwards of $975/
000,000 and he was faced with the
necessity of finding I37.500.000
more revenue.
"There are no indications that
the trade boom has reached its
maximum and there are no signs
of over production", said the chan-
cellor, "And taking all facts into
consideration I feel justified in
coming to the conclusion that we
have entered upon the mosi grow-
ing year that British trade has
ever seen".
Mr. Lloyd George intimated
that the increase in thecustom ex-
cise tariffs would be 913.835.OOO
and inciease in, the income tax and
death duties j7.500.000 ami the
incicase in super tax $5,750,000.
The balance of the shortage would
be made up with the income tax
and other revenue due last year
but onlypaid at the beginning of
the current year, and f5.c0o.0co

He said the cost of armament
is the largest and most sterile
increase in the expenditure and I
cannot see any prospect of this
