Playing For His Old Position

Post by Karen on Tue 2 Aug 2011 - 2:05


Who will be his successor it is difficult even to guess, but that Lord Salisbury will be much tried the next three months by aspirants for the position and friends is certain. Mr. Goschen will be though of early - and as soon dismissed, for the Standard now admits him to be not the able man he was once thought to be. Lord Hartington again will be suggested, but it must not be forgotten that his father, the Duke of Devonshire, is very aged and very feeble, and cannot live much longer. With the Duke's death the Marquis enters the House of Lords. Mr. Chamberlain would like the position, but I can hardly conceive the Tories so swallowing their dislike and distrust of this man to accept him as their leader in the Commons. What Lord Randolph Churchill is playing for is notorious, and that is for his old position. Whether he will be Mr. Smith's successor or not depends on Lord Salisbury's capacity for yielding. At present the position is a very open one, and I am certain, be Mr. Smith's successor whom he may, he will be a round man in a square hole.
