NEWS AND NOTES

T F they were not so pitiably silly, we could find much A entertainment in certain newspaper comments on the recent Anglo-French Catholic re-union in Paris. The signing o f the transparent and fraternal pact of friendship and mutual help between the French Volontaires du Pape, and our own Society for the Maintenance of the Apostolic See is being described as the sinister inauguration of a “ Black International,” to be spread through all countries. In Rome, Paris, London, Manchester, and even Brighton, journalists are discussing the horrid possibilities of that they call “ this new move.” Against such nonsense it is no good arguing. What

we have to do is to go on openly and simply with our Catholic life and work.

It looks as if a quick and copious thaw is about to change the contours of Britains political life. For thirty years, Conservatives in our country have alternately loved and feared Protection : but at long last it looks as if they are ready for the plunge. Many observers assume us that the working classes are quietly dropping a Cobdenism which was never quite natural to the Labour Party, and that not even a modest schedule of food-taxes would frighten them away from a big experiment in Empire Free Trade and Protection against other countries. It does not follow, however, that Labour’s Old Guard will stand at ease, watching their rank-and-file pass over to the Conservative Protectionists. Labour may evolve its own scheme of Imperial Preference, and may throw Mr. Snowden’s political economy overboard. When a defeat on its Finance Bill is avoided b y only three votes, a Party sits down to do some thinking.

Our recent Notes on the succession to the Apostolic Crown of Hungary were based on our own conversations with citizens of Budapest and other Hungarian towns. They must now be supplemented and corrected in accordance with Count Bethlen’s later declarations. Hungary’s Prime Minister believes that the crowning of the Archduke Otto as Apostolic King could not be accomplished, in actual political conditions, without making trouble for the country out of proportion to the advantages of such a step. The Count is persuaded that a Habsburg restoration would not be accepted by certain States. So the Regency must carry on. But, although Count Bethlen acquiesces in the dynastic prohibitions o f the Treaty, he protests as emphatically as ever against Trianon’s territorial and economic spoliations of his fatherland. Unfriendly critics might ask him why the sauce for the economic goose is not also sauce for the dynastic gander.
