LONDON, November 16. Lord Salisbury, addressing the Conference of members of the Conservative Union, said that the charge made of a breach of faith on the part of the British towards the Indian tribesmen was totally unfounded. He denied the statement that Givat Britain had surrendered territory in Sinm and Madagascar. The problem of the local government of London would not, he saiid, be solved until a large portion of the County Council's work was assigned to smaller municipalities, and it was likely that legislation would be introduced to remedy the difficulty. The Conference passed resolutions in favor of a substantial increase of the army, a Royal residence for Ireland, and remedial measures against foreign sugar and shipping bounties.
