Description

Excerpt from Mr. Chamberlain, His Life and Public Career IF any excuse were required for publishing the biography of a living Statesman it would be found in the fact that, from its outset to its latest development, it has invariably been interesting. Since Mr Chamberlain entered the House of Commons in 1876 he has never stood in the background of the Parliamentary picture. Over shadowed by the historic forms of Disraeli and Gladstone, of Bright and Salisbury, and competing, as it were, with the equally independent, equally anomalous, figures of Randolph Churchill and Parnell, Mr Chamberlain was recognised from the first as a coming man - one who would not be long in coming. Denounced and praised, feared and admired by all Parties in turn, he has also, in less than thirty years, known a period in which he was simultaneously distrusted on both sides, and, by way of compensation, has gone through a great crisis in which he enjoyed the unqualified confidence of practically the whole nation. But hardly had he digested the eulogies which he received from all quarters for his work of conciliation in South Africa than, as if he were weary of general commendation.
