What they claim, according to an authoritative exposition by a leading member of their house, is the right and duty " to arrest the progress of such measures whenever we believe that they have been insufficiently considered, and that they are not in accord with the deliberate judgment of the country." In short, the claim made by them is to act as arbiters between the commons and the country. The constitutional position thus assumed would be stronger if the questions at issue were questions of fact or law, the decision of which could be delegated to legal experts and dealt with in a strictly judicial spirit. As it is, the lords are open to the charge of being actuated by political or economical motives, and the need of devising some better method than now exists of reconciling and adjusting differences between the two branches of the legislature has been recognized on all sides. From the conservative point of view there are sound and solid arguments for a house of lords, but it would appear to many that to defend an aristocratic institution with democratic arguments is neither easy nor safe.
