Excerpt from The Annual Register: A Review of Public Events at Home and Abroad, for the Year 1891

After once more declaring that Home Rule was not a mere pious Opinion, but was a practicable and opportune proposal, and was certainly not to be dropped, Mr. Morley concluded: All depends upon Ireland. It is for Irishmen to choose. If they are true to themselves we will never betray them. The hour may be dark, and the signs perplexing; but it is the dark hour that tests the mettle of which men are made. Let us watch; let us hope. Questions arise to every nation (and this is one) which are not to be settled by counting at the moment a minority or a majority. We will not draw it back.

The outcome of this speech - or rather manifesto - was to show that Mr. Chamberlain and those who thought with him that Home Rule is as dead as Queen Anne were mistaken, and that the Gladstonian leaders still considered it the best rallying cry for their partisans in the three kingdoms. The election in Kilkenny, moreover, had already shown that Mr. Par nell's power was on the wane in his own country; and if the English Dissenters and Scotch Presbyterians did not take fright at the idea of an alliance with the Roman Catholic priesthood in Ireland, Home Rule offered the best hope of carrying the party back to power. On one point Mr. Morley had preserved an ominous silence. He made no allusion to the retention of Irish members at Westminster in reduced numbers, and although Mr. Gladstone had eagerly contradicted the first statement by Mr. Parnell that they were to be reduced to thirty-two, both he and Mr. Morley were silent with regard to the amended number, thirty-four. Yet on this point would necessarily turn the whole principle of the continued representation of Ireland at West minster.

With Mr. Morley's speech at Newcastle the ?oodgates of platform oratory were opened. Sir George Trevelyan (jan. After vigorously denouncing his former associates the Liberal8] english history.
