POSSIBILITIES OF CONSCRIPTION.

WILL BE ENFORCED IF NECESSARY. (London ' Tiroes ' and Sydney ' Sun' Services.) LONDON", January 10. During the 'debate in the House of Lord? on the Army Estimates Lord Selborne said that Germany had shown that she possessed a most wonderful war machine, turning into soldiers the whole of her physically capable manhood. The German soldier had proved splendidly bravo. Failure to admit that would rob our own soldiers of the credit of fighting splendidly. The war must be measured by years, and not by months. Many had not enlisted who might, and the man who was prepared to enjoy life nnder the British Flag without a grim determination to hand on the Flag as fr«« as he found it was unworthy tho namo of a Britisher. Lord Haldane said the task before Britain was a colossal one, needing every energy of the nation. The Constitution permitted conscription, and but tor the magnificent response the nation was making to our appeal to enlist it might be ne-ce-sary to resort to conscription as a great .jualiunai fixu&uuoicy. British esuerts were

endeavoring to produce big guns etpiiva- | lent to those ot' the Hermans. Our artillery service was in thorough order, 15,000 Uims having been added before the war. | Lord MaeDonnell stated that 16,000 UMcrnien and 58.000 Nationalists had recruited, if an equal response had been made in oilier parts of (treat Britain they would have over two million men. hold Crewe said the Govei iiment considered that conscription could not be regarded as within the landscape as they now saw it. Lord .Moncriefl' complained that the Scottish regiments were, no longer provided with "tartan kilts. Lord Lucas explained that the authorities we.re temporarily unable to get stitlicient tartan. What constituted "the kilt was a highly technical matter, upon which ditrerejit claim could never he brought to agree. A MAIIVKLLOUS CONVULSION. LON'DOX. January 11.
