* SPEECH BY MR CHAMBERLAIN. [Per Press Association.—Copyright.] LONDON, November 4. Mr Chamberlain, speaking at Glasgow, said that patriotism had become a democratic passion. Those who had given the colonies Home Rule,...expected that the colonies would soon declare their independence, and suggested the desirability of clearing them out. The Jubilee gathering would, however, mean tho utter discomfiture of that policy, and no English Minister would again suggest separation. The most satisfactory signs were the demands for closer union coming from the colonies, though the exact form in which this should be brought about was not now of so much importance. The prospect of a really united Empire was becoming a question of practical politics.
