London (Mar. 1)
(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)
The return of the Liberals to influence and power in England was predicted last night following the first political address delivered by Sir Herbert Samuel in seven years.
Speaking before the Eighty Club, Sir Herbert expressed optimistic views of the chances of Liberalism in the next election. He stated that at least five hundred Liberal candidates will be elected and it is probable that the Liberal Party will have a majority in Parliament. The Liberal press is extremely satisfied with Sir Herbert’s leadership and comments on his eloquence and continued youthfulness.
The Rt. Hon. A. Birrell, chairman of the meeting, stated afterward that he did not know Samuel was so able a speaker.
