Rumors of the possibility that a Jew will become leader of the Liberal party are current here.

These rumors are occasioned by the impending retirement of Lord Oxford from the Liberal leadership. The London News, discussing the situation, suggests that since there is a strong opposition in a certain section of the party against Lloyd George’s leadership, Lord Oxford’s place should be filled by the Marquis of Reading or Sir Herbert Samuel, both of whom are prominent leaders of the Liberal party.
