AN ELASTIC TIE.
[Pbe Press Association.—Copybioht.]
LONDON, October 14. /•n e course of a speech at Wormit (Fifeshire). the Eight Hon. Mr Asquith, who was Home Secretary in the late Liberal Administration, dwelt upon the advantages of the looseness and elasticity of the ties between the colonies, and the Motherland. To enter upon an Imperial Constitution on a basis of proper safeguards would be to gravely imperil the present security of the Empire, and the granting of preferential duties in favor of the colonies would, he said, prove the first step towards the destruction of the British and colonial trade.
