Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science and Art, 1905, Vol. 99 I love my country, though in such strange fashion NO reasons of the mind must rule this passion. Her dear blood-purchased glory, The calm that best her haughty trust beseems, Her dark and ancient day of hallowed story 'tis none Of these that prompts my happier-dreams.

Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science and Art, Vol. 108: 3 July, 1909 A very interesting point was raised by questions in the House of Lords about the visit of the fleet to the Thames. It was pointed out by Lord Ellenborough and Lord Cawdor that, according to the Admiralty plans published in the newspapers, a great part Of the fleet would be bottled up in the narrow waters of the Thames and be placed in an extremely risky position. Lord Crewe would not deny positively that this plan had been authorised by the Admiralty. It seems then to have been worth while to raise the question, and according to the now authorised plan the large ships are to be placed at Southend in a channel so broad that bottling up need not be feared. Lord Crewe may argue against the possibility of a coup de main on the ground that it would be a brigand attack not to be contemplated from any civilised Power, but it is better to be on the safe side.

The Saturday Review of Politics  Literature  Science  and Art  1884  Vol  58  Classic Reprint

Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science, and Art, 1884, Vol. 58 When the principle is once established that the employment of certain corporate funds is to be regulated exclusively by considerations of utility, the defence of ceremonies and banquets becomes untenable. Schools and hospitals are Obviously more useful than City dinners yet the inference that there ought to be no more cakes and'ale is perhaps not exhaustively true. The security of more important institu tions may rest on firmer grounds but it also depends largely on the instinct or habit of letting things alone. The theory that Parliament is the sole judge Of the expediency of main taining any kind Of right is essentially modern. The pre cedent of the appropriation to novel purposes Of the estates of the monasteries was founded on the assumption that the property had been dedicated to superstitious uses. The Commissioners probably took an unnecessary pre caution when they recommended that a short Act Should be immediately passed to restrain the Companies from alienation of their property. There could be no question of any such proceeding on the part of such Companies as the Mercers, the Goldsmiths, and the Fishmongers; and pro bably even the smallest Guilds would decline to follow the example of the members of Serjeants' Inn. A division made once for all of the property which a corporate body has accumulated during hundreds of years is not even an approximate fulfilment of a legal or moral trust. In some-cases the leading members of the Companies will perhaps be willing to concur with any Commission which may be appointed in promoting judicious schemes for the future application of the funds. It may be hoped that there will be no capricious attempt to deprive the governing bodies of the right and duty Of administering funds which they avowedly hold as trustees. The most important function which the Companies have discharged has been to create and to cultivate a local patriotism which is probably not to be found in equal force in any other English com munity. The liverymen and other members of the Com panics have been proud of their traditional dignity and Of their connexion with the great -city Corporation. There is no reason for meddling unnecessarily with names and titles, even when they are no longer associated with Substantial advantages. It is useless to struggle against fate, especially when it assumes the form Of a Parliamentary majority backed by general Opinion. It can only be said that the abolition of the Companies will not be an unmixed good. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science and Art, Vol. 98: 2 July, 1904-31 December, 1904 The Lords have refused to pass the second reading of the bill to enable women to be elected to County and Borough Councils and Metropolitan Borough Councils. All that can be said in its favour, and there is a good deal, was superciliously ignored by its opponents. The Lord Chancellor Opposed it because he thinks it is only a part of the agitation which has been going On for some time with the object of placing women politically in exactly the same position as men. Lord James of Hereford gave the same reason. The Earl of Portsmouth disposed of all difficulties with the axiom that a woman's politics should be those of her husband. He did not provide them with a programme when they do not happen to have husbands. It is in deference to such sentiments as these that women are to be shut off from much useful work. Which they have proved themselves admirably fitted to undertake. The Duke of Norfolk's resolution to amend the Sovereign' s accession declaration against Transubstantiation was the subject of the Lords' debate on Friday afternoon.

SATURDAY REVIEW OF POLITICS LI

Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science and Art, 1900, Vol. 88 As the Prevention of Corruption Bill leaves the House of Lords the original form of it has not been very much altered and the alterations have the effect of somewhat modifying its stringency. The preamble reciting the corruption of our age, which the Lord Chancellor mildly deprecated, has disappeared he moreover being of opinion, as was also Lord Russell himself, that pre ambles in Acts of Parliament are antiquated and, less than useful, sometimes mischievous. A new clause repairs the curious drafting which declared giving secret advice for the benefit of a third person for reward a corrupt action yet without making it an offence. Punish ment of first offenders may now be postponed in suit able cases and release ordered on recognisance until they may be called to come up for judgment. But the most important change is that prosecutions are not to be begun without the leave of a judge of the High Court, or the attorney-general, ' or a judge of a county court with bankruptcy jurisdiction. Some restriction was desirable, and this seems a reasonable safeguard against frivolous or malicious proceedings.

The Saturday Review of Politics  Literature  Science  and Art  1882  Vol  53  Classic Reprint

Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science, and Art, 1882, Vol. 53 After this prelude we may approach the Supreme Being of the Hottentots, as described by Dr. Hahn, custodian of the Grey Collection at Cape Town. Dr. Hahn's book, published by Messrs. Triibner, is that of a man who is both a philologist and believer in philological methods and a close student of savage manners and customs. He has long observed the Hottentots, or Khoi Khoi, a yellowish race of pastoral men, allied by blood, Dr. Hahn thinks, to the much less cultivated and probably degraded Se, or Bush men. Dr. Hahn gives abstracts of old accounts of the religion and mythology (a very different thing) of the Khoi Khois. It is agreed that cairns are still objects of worship, where they assemble to offer prayers to' the deceased or to the supreme being, Tsuigoa The question arises, Is Tsuigoab, the supreme being, himself no. More than the ghost of a dead man Kolb, a Dutch settler, says. (english translation, 17 38) that the Hottentots adore the moon, and. Likewise pay a Religious Veneration to their Saints and Men of Renown departed. They have also an evil deity, a little crabbed inferieure Captain and Kolb mentions their worship of the Mantis insect. Later travellers, quoted by Dr. Hahn, speak of the offerings made at cairns because a Hottentot was buried there. Dr. Hahn himself has known a man to worship at his father's grave; and it is, in fact, admitted that the Hottentots are an ancestor-worshipping people. The Namaquas, a branch of the race, aver that their great father, Heije Eibib, is below the cairn on which they throw bushes. And it seems to be the universal faith of the Hottentots that their chief god, Tsuigoab, was once a man, now dead and buried. But the very language of the hymns in which they address, with deep and pathetic religious feeling, the father of fathers, suggests to the European oh server that Tsuigoab is probably no real ancestor of recent times, but a being of the imagination, a fancied ancestor and protector, imaginatively endowed with human attributes.
