Excerpt from The Nineteenth Century, Vol. 45: A Monthly Review; January-June, 1899 The protracted crisis in the Liberal party has entered upon an extremely acute stage. It has come very unexpectedly, and it has been attended with some incidents which are almost sensational but events have been so clearly leading up to it that, after the first surprise was over, the present development must have been welcomed as a relief from the painful tension of the last two years. This unrest has, in truth, extended over much more than two years. Primarily it is the result Of Mr. Gladstone's retirement, but it may be traced even further back to the Liberal schism of 1886. It was impossible that a great party should lose so many of its most conspicuous leaders without sustaining permanent injury. For a time the con sequences were not apparent. In the excitement of the conflict Liberals were not disposed to acknowledge the real significance of the secession. Probably they did not appreciate it themselves. It was difficult at first to believe that seceders, whose differences had disturbed the Cabinet of 1880, would suddenly develop a Spirit of unity, or that out of a difference on one point Of Liberal policy there would be evolved an opposition of the most irreconcilable temper. Hence it was difficult to get rid of the idea that the schism would only be temporary. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
