WE learn from the Political Notes in the Times that the recent dismissals at Coopers Hill College were discussed on Monday at a meeting held in one of the committee-rooms of the House of Commons. The meeting was convened by Sir W. Anson, Sir Michael Foster, Mr. Milward, and Mr. C. P. Trevelyan; and the attendance included Mr. Haldane, Mr. Emmott, Mr. C. Douglas, Mr. Yoxall, Mr. Palmer, Mr. Spear, Mr. E. Gray, Mr. Lecky, Mr. Cohen, Mr. J. G. Talbot, Mr. Bartley, Mr. Norman and Mr. Howard. Apologies for inability to be present were received from Sir R. Jebb, Sir J. Batty-Tuke, Mr. J. A. Campbell, Sir L. McIver and Mr. Leigh-Bennett. This list, it will be seen, includes not only members of all the British parties, but the representatives of all the Universities. It was decided to request another interview with Lord George Hamilton, in order to press upon him the necessity for an inquiry into the whole circumstances. Failing success in this endeavour the matter will be brought forward in the House at the earliest possible opportunity.
