London, Yesterday. Sir Edward (key, speaking at Maidstone, said he did pot believe Mr Chamberlain's statement that the Empire would break up unless the fiscal system were abandoned. He would dread to see a bond*of bargain replace that of sentimental union. Britain would not benefit if the colonies raised the duties to foreigners unless they lowered the duties to her. He trusted the nation's strong sense would not suuport Messrs Chamberlain and Balfour in so great a political gamble.
