WH0095Panic in Parliament - Butler Commission [on reverse]

WH0055Balfour and the opposition [caption on reverse]
Published caption: Would this satisfy the opposition?
Printed under published cartoon: The Opposition complain so bitterly of Ministers being absent from the House of Commons when fiscal resolutions are discussed that we suggest Mr. Balfour should have wax effigies of himself and his principal colleagues put upon the Government Bench for their opponents to rail at. This would certainly be better than denouncing empty seats.

WH0131Balfour and the guys [on reverse]
Published caption: Which guy will Mr. Balfour burn?
Printed under published cartoon: While Lord Londonderry, a Free Trade member of the Cabinet, is urging that the Fiscal Question shall be dropped, Mr. Austen Chamberlain, Chancellor of the Exchequer, declares that the Government have no intention of dropping it. Each section of the Cabinet is trying to persuade Mr. Balfour to go its way.

WH0022The New St. Patrick

WH0108Parliamentary resignation [on green folder]
Published on front page. Published caption: Mr. Balfour as Hamlet - "To go or not to
go." Printed under published cartoon: The Prime Minister's promised statement on Monday
concerning the defeat of the Government by 8 votes on the Irish Land Commission Expenses
Vote is awaited with the keenest interest. Meanwhile there is absolutely nothing to show
whether it will take the form of an announcemnt of the resignation of the Government or
will practically ignore the defeat altogether. The clamours of the Liberal and Irish
Parties are in any case not likely to affect Mr. Balfour's decision so much as the
weariness and indifference of his own followers.

WH0090Balfour and volunteers
Published caption: Two ways of treating the volunteers.

Printed under published cartoon: The Prime Minister: Do tell that strange old man to go away. He looks like an Ancient Briton. Ask him if he knows this is 1904. [The "Evening News" suggests, apropos of the new vote of censure, that Sir Henry Camphell-Bannerman's methods are so antique he ought to be called B.C. instead of C.B.]

Published caption:Mud-trhwong.
Printed under published cartoon: Delighted Army Contractor (with a few millions in his pocket): As long as those fellows confine their mud-throwing and votes of censure to each other I'm all right.
News: In 1904 the Esher War Office (Reconstitution) Committee led to the establishment of a Committee of Imperial Defense, with the PM in control and with a permanent secretariat to connect the activities of the responsible ministers and the knowledge of service experts. Also, an Army council was to replace a single commander-in-chief.
