THE ANTI-MILITARISTS.

TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —You are surely not serious in thfe following statement which appeared ia your sub-leader last night; “We cannot contemplate without a shudder what would, beyond peradventuve, have happened had the Radical-Labor party in the Motherland by some dire misfortune have been in power during the, last five or ten years.” Are you not aware that sines 1906 a Radical-Labor Government has been in power in the Old Country. Was not Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman a Radical? Are not Mr Asquith, Mr Lloyd--George, Sir Edward Grey. Mr WinstoC Churchill, and other members of the prosent Cabinet all Radicals? Is not Mr John Burns a Labor Leader? And yet all these statesmen have successfully guided the destinies of the British Era» pire lor the last nine years. Youf antipathy to Labor has surely distorted your judgment, and I am afraid that, you will require to shudder a great deal if you read the political history of Great Britain and Ireland for the last nina years, and contemplate the politics of the gentlemen who have been during that period, and still are, members of Ills' Majesty's Government.—Yours truly. An English Radical. January 15. [We are familiar with the political history of the United Kingdom during th<» past nine years. We gather from th® above that our Correspondent ia not.— Ed. E.S.]
