Tlie European Mlliinlluu.
Tiro political situation in Europe
is doulrtful or nionacing, and tliore
are vory sagacious observers who
forecast wnr. Russia is the main
source of alarm, and Bulgaria would
probably be tho excuse for trouble.
Bismarck and the empress of Germany are unfriendly. The emperor
is apparently doomed, and his bod
would probably sympathize with
Bismarck rather than with his
mother. Bismarck is seventy-two,
und Moltke muoh older, and the
crowitprince is mainly known as an
ambitious soldier. France is in a
serious condition, with a president
who is in no sense a leader, and
who does uot command national
confidence or enthusiasm, whilo
Boulanger, the popular hero of the
hour, is a soldier nt odds with tho
govornment, whose addresses are full
of the French rodomontade which
may mean anything. The French
hostility to Germany and the resolution to recover tho lost provinces
are unrelated; while Germany, with
an army numerous beyond precedent, stands organized and alert
upon every frontier, ready for instant action. England evidently
strongly sustains the present government in its Irish policy, and Mr.
Balfour plainly represents the dominant sentiment of the country.
There seems less reason than a year
ago to suppose tha parliament will
be dissolved, although there is always the chance of a sudden crisis
and change. Austria watches Russia with doubt; and Italy, heavily
taxed, could not escape the tempest
should it break. In this glimpse
the country which shows most political disintegration is*' l4inIt), 'tlie
only republic. Normal politics seem
to lie still impossible there, and the
question is of the permanence of the
government itself, The opposition
of parties is not in our sense constitutional, but revolutionary. The
election of Gen. Boulanger as deputy
in moro than one district is a disquieting demonstration. He is understood to represent national revenge for the result of the Qeruinn
war, and his oleotion is an emphatic
protest against the ministry which
has just retired him from service,
Yet amid nil the, »PRF£heMJ8pji.*af
war there is ndwheVe 'visiiiio any
legitimate reason, Bismarck in said
to Imvo objected to tho marriage of
the German emperor's daughter to
Prince Alexander of Bulgaria because the prince is personally displeasing to the Russian czar, and
the late Emperor William left tlio
policy of peace with Russia as his
last political bequest. But tha
prince is personally pleasing to the
German empress and to the English
royal houso, and the empress is understood to have been long opposed
to the ascendency of Bismarck.
But she is a foreigner, and the policy
of Bismarck has satisfied the pride
of Germany, so that in a serious difference the national feeling would
sustain him, Yet while there is no
legitimate specific reason for war,
Russia is always a reason, In our
peaceful and remote position we
count tho cost of the enormous armament of Germany as an exhaustive
drain upon the country, and a constant threat. But except for a
highly organized, ample, and efficient military barrier in contral Europe, what would stay the advance
of Russia? It was a just instinct
that drew England and France together in tho Crimean war, for the
purpose of Russia was most effectively to extend her line ngainst Europe Is it for the interest of civilization und liberty that Russia
should occupy Constantinople? Mr.
Schurz said truly, in his address upon tho late Gorman emporor, thut
the German army was tlio ration
armed, and that tho German armament had boon the most powoiful
peaoe-makcr in Europe. The proof
is that the immense army and the
soven years' law for its maintenance
do not alarm Europe. The Gorman
army does not threaten conquest.
Armed Germany is not the enemy of
liberty, liko Russia, and it holds
Russia at bay. Serious political
dissension iu Germany, therefore,
would bo a genoral misfortune, and
a general European war, which must
necossarily shako thn continent,
could be regarded only with grent
apprehension. If the result should
lm advantageous to Russia, it would
he a grave oalamity. — J/arjm's

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
THE   qllliEN    stfD    BISMAHUK    SHAKE
1IATOS.
Bbblis, April 20.—During her visit
to tho mausoleum this morning, Qiieen
Victoria placed a wreath on tho tomb
of tbe Emperor William. At 3 o'olock
this aftornoon, accompanied by the
Empress, Queen Victoria drove to the
drill ground, where she inspected tho
royal guards. Later tlie royal party
was driven to Berlin, and Queen Victoria said farewell to the Dowager Empress Augusta and the Grand Duke
and Grand Duchess of Baden. The
Queen's interview yesterday with
Prince Bismarck, whom she especially
commended and who is said to have
been very gracious, is believed to hare
beon very satisfactory. The Quoon
courorsed in the purest German with
tbe chancellor, who is reported to have
shaken liands heartily with Her Majesty upon retiring from the audience.
THE QUEI1.V LEAVES BEKL1.V.
Beklih, April 26.—Queen Victoria
took her departure from Berlin this
evening. A host of royal personages
saw her off and besides these were the
burgomaster and the members of the
municipal council of Charlottenburg,
all in their official robes to pay their
respects to the Queen. They were
presented to the Queen by the Crown
Prince William, and the former
thanked them heartily for their kindness during her visit. The Crown
Princo conducted the Queen into her
saloon carriage, the Empress Victoria
following. After affectionate farewells
and embraces had been exohanged, the
train started and drew out of the station amid loud cheora from the members that had assembled to witness the
Queen's departure.
JOHN L. HAS A PLEASANT TRIP.
, New Yokk, April 26.—The ITorH's
Boston special alleges that Sullivan
went on a spree aboard the Catalonia,
insulted ladies, had fights with the
steamer's employees, beat Anna Livingstone, and was so violent that tho
captain threatened to put him in irons.
ThtJHov. W. R Manly, one of the
passengers, is'given as authority for
theso statements. Ha .ays that Sullivan cursed Mrs. Manley and the
steward, who in defending himself,
broke a syphon over John's head,
which pleased the big fellow so much
that he said ho was glad that tlie steward was on board. Tho engineer
threatened to turn hot water on Sullivan, who thereafter left him alone.
LOKIW ASD COMMONS.
Lomiott, Apr. 26.—In the house of
commons tonight the debate on the
budget was continued. Sir James
Ferguson, the under secretary for
foreign affairs, announoed that M.
Waddington, the French ambassador,
had protested in the name of his government against the hi on bottled
wines. Mr. Gladstone opposed the
tax as a prohibition of the cheaper
wines and a step toward a return to *
policy of protection. A long discussion followed, at the end of which the
tax on bottled wines was adopted by
a vote of 246 to 121. In the house of
lords to-night a discussion was had on
Lord Dunraven't bill to reform tha
house of lords. Several peers favored
reform, but did not agree with the hill
itself. Lord Salisbury thought tbat
the proposed changes were necessary.
He waa willing, however, to consider
the admission of lifo peers, and wu
willing to introduce a separate bill for
this purpose. He said he would also
consider other needful reforms. Lord
Granville said '*" this concession had
boon made long ago it would have
averted many attacks ou the houso of
lords. Lord Dunraveu withdrew his
bill.
THE TIIS1TV APOITEIl.
Orr.nvA, April 20. —Tho fiabery
treaty wa) adopted by the senate tonight. The Hon. U. W. Scott, leader
of the opposition, spoke at length on
tho question, during his remarks attacking Mr. Chamberlain, and stating
if tho fishery negotiations had boen
carried on by othor persons besides Mr.
Chamberlain and Sir Charles Tupper,
Canada's interests would have neon
hotter sorved.

rKESIDENT CLEVELAND TIIIlEATENS.
Washinoton, April 27.r-The President is said to be angered at the action of the republican senate caucus,
which decided tbat the fisheries treaty
should not bo ratified. He hu threatened, it is reported, if the senate rejects the treaty, to put into affect im:
mediately the 'Canadian retaliatory
resolution, adopted by congress at lta
last session. These resolutions can be
made to prohibit commercial relations
between the Vl S. and Canada. The
president feels that in presenting the
treaty for the settlement of the Atlantic fisheries dispute he hu made an
offset to tbe retaliatory acts of oon.
gress. He aaya that if the senate is
not willing to consider the treaty he ii
absolved from all responsibility for any
retaliatory legislation, and ean conscientiously put the act into effect at
any moment. If the retaliatory resolutions were put into force all railroad
business between the two countries,
except that of passengers and mails,
would be put at an end. No coal
could be brought from British Columbia lo the Pacific states. The president will only enforce retaliatory legislation in the event that the senate refuses impartial consideration of the
treaty, but he is afraid the republicans
in the senate will not take any action
on the subject until the next session of
the present congress, when it may be
too late for him to put tlie retaliatory
bill into effect.

During lut summer the development of tftti Pacific coast wns un-
prucedenteclly large; und there are
many people who hold tho opinion
that this coast will oontinue for
some time to grow in population and
Wealth at a rate thnt will astonish
the world. Tbousnnds of people nre
constantly flockingto tho west, and
filling.up tho lands all tho way from
Mexico to Alaska: Speaking of tho
future of California, a gentleman of
largo experience and observation in
the east, after making a tour through
the golden state, said: "This generation will witness an inpouring
which will probably make California
the empire state of tho union. New
York will soon bo brought within
four days of Snn Francisco, and families with moderate means will leave
Siberian atmospheres for one which
far surpasses the Italian Riviera, or
any other European resort. There
is room for 60,000,000 of people on
the Pacific slope, with capabilities
to de,velop: in material weolth and
resources .sufficient to keep pace with
any increase which the whole capacity of all the Pacifio Railway lines
may le able to transport." The development last yearhasby nomeans
been confined to California, however, nor do the prospects of future
increase belong only there. Canada
hos.a vast heritage whero there are
abundant resources for many millions
of people. It hns been officially
stated that, from' Port Arthur, on
Lake Superior, to tho Pacifio coast,
there are no less than 500,000,000
acres of rich agricultural lands unoccupied and undeveloped, capable:
of yielding a comfortable living to
more people than are now found on
this continent. It is believed that
the settlement of these wido fields
will be more rapid in the years to
come than it has yet been, and that
the present generation will see more
people west of Lake Superior than
there are now east of it. The abandonment of the railway monopoly
has already given a wonderful im-1
petus to western emigration, and1
there are other causes at work whioh
promise to be equally potent factors
in the development of, the waster
places in our own oountry. It would,
pusde the mostskilful prophet to predict the changes that will take place
on this continent, and especially in'
western Oanada, before tho close of
the present century.
Commenting on tho defeat of the
Scott aot in a large number of Ontario counties, the Vancouver Herald
says: i'No law will or can be effective
in prescribing for people what they
shall eat and what they shnll drink.
Suoh a law is regarded as an arbitrary exercise of authority, an uncalled-for interference with individual rights."   The stupidity and pig-
headedness of some peoplo  who assume'tho responsible  task  of  oii-
lightening the public is  most discouraging.     Prohibitiort  does not
pretend  to prescribe what people
shall eat or drink, nor did the Scott
act attempt any  suoh   impossible
task.   It does not ovon say   what
they shall not ent nnd drink.     No
law can do   these  things,   because
while a man is freo  he  cannot  bo
prevented from eating or drinking
anything that happens to be within
his reach.    The aim.of prohibition
is to prevent the manufacture and
sale of intoxicating liquors becauso
tbe consequences of the use of these
beverages are contrary to the good
of the state.     The greatest good to
the greatest number should be the
aim ol all law,   and : we  are sure
neither our Vancouver ootemporary
nor sny of our readeW will'deny that
the publio  good would'be greatly
promoted if the liquor  traffic wero
entirely suppressed.     As n matter
of feet thtrt are many laws now on
the statute books which are just as
much of an interference with individual rights as prohibition.  A man
will not be allowed to kindle a fire
on his own lot if it evidently endangers the property of  his  neighbor.
If   our Vancouver    cotemporary
Bhould choose to  permit his promises to become filthy, the board of
health will step in and say that, in
Uie public interest, these promises
must be mado clean, and our cotem-
porary would be absolutely forced
to conduot the local administration
of his own household on principles
that do not conflict with the public
interest.'   Again, otir laws prevent
k man from exercising the free  use
of hia own tongue.     Our cotempor-
sry who holds up hit hands in alarm
at the prospect of any  reform that
may prevent a person satisfying his
appetite! by that whioh is destructive to himself snd the community,
has no word of protest against laws
which interfere with free speech I
There sre words tho very tatteranoe
of which will bring s man into the
hands of the executors of the law,
•nd yet our cotemporary has nothing
tossy against.moh an "arbitrary
exerciser of authority."    Personal
liberty m»st stop whonover it conflicts with the public interest.     No
one denies that the liquor traffic is a
oiirM, and is not in the publio interest; therefore, prohibition is no more
snd "arbitrary" iiiterfortnce  with
personal liberty thsn many existing
laws which go unquestioned.    The
wboels of reform  ore  obstructed
ohMt.persons who, while prof-Ming to be in ijrmiisthy with to-
form, ipisitpfo»oot ***-*-#**> "*
cast discredit upon the methods employed— raothods uf which, when
turned to other objects, tlitry approve.

AMONO THE SAVAGES.
How 'tIIoj-ht, ar_ Obtained to Work on
.  gugnr riiintiitloiis.
Fo great Is tlio demand for "cheap
lalror" in the suj*nr {.'rowing districts ol
Tnliili anil the Hawaiian Islands anil in
Oueenslnnd, that, It lioiu^ known that
tliii natives ol tho New Hebrides were
willing to "ship" on plantations lor a
term of years for merely nominal wages,
"lalror vessels" visit the group annually
,   to cngirgo men and a lew women for that
i*   work. The manner in which this is done
"   woll illustrates the distrust tho natives
anrl foreigners havo for each other.'
"Lalror" vessels aro always provided
with a regular arsenal ol rifles nnil pistols. The main hold is fittct with gratings that separate tlio females from tho
men—or "boys" as tlioy aro called—and
in these compartments urn fixed certain
sleeping platforms called "bunks." The
vessels engaged in this trade are generally small, seldom exceeding 250 tons
measurement, and they carry their troats
ns the whalemen do, hanging from the
davits, ready_ for Immediate .service.
The captain of an Knglish labor vessel
sails bet to and from certain designated
ports, and cruises about whero thero is
the best chance of getting "boys," but no
boat can go "recruiting" unless tbo government agent goes with it. No "hoys"
;r can, theoretically, bo brought off to tho
ship against his will. -
There is generally on a labor vessel an
. "interpreter." The particular ono with
. whom the writer sailed on a Hawaiian
'. labor vessel, wu called "Hilly the Dlvll,"
which titto sufficiently indicates his
character.
Supposing o vessel niter "boys" to
have arrived in Havana harbor, tho
finest in tho'group, on the Island of
Vate; the captain generally engages at
least ono boat's crew of the nutives
themselves, on tho principle, perhaps,
that it takes a savage to catch a savage,
there always being plenty on hand who
■re experienced In the business.
Leaving Havanmt harbor the vessel
cruises leisurely oil' through the groups,
\ never being moro than two or thn o
/ miles from one iBland to another. Cruising along on tno lee side of theso istninis
a sharp lookout is Kept for any eiurrrs of
a "smoke" on tho stretch's of sandy
bench. Eo dense is tho .foliage ami so
liirufiil are the natives to conceal their
villages that the only indications of there
being human life on these islands is a
! column of smoke that wo occasionally
see ou the shore, sent up by tho savages
_ to let us know that they want to "trade."
, When such a smoke is seen the boats
I are lowered and manned. "The boats"
I say because two are always sent in
company to interviow the savages. In
the one that takes the lead there is, besides the crew, the interpreter and, in
I ngiish vessels, tho sgent.   There is
 also a box filled with "trade," that is,
'(Turkey red muslin, as gaudy and flimsy
(as the promises made to induce the na-
'lives to ship; tobacco, ol tho kind known
Ins "nigger head" (twenty-six plugs to
the proud) sweet, cheap and rotten: gun
'naps of an abaolete make; cheap pipes;
strings ol gay beads, a few of which constitute what Is called "full dross," packages ol matches, guaranteed not to light
I Von tho box" or anywhere else by friction; soft iron hatchets, knives and
'needles, and other ingenious frauds with
which to purchase such supplies as yams,
' pigs, cocoanuts, eta. and also to give aB
prescnti to the. friends ol those who
ship. The second boat acts as a "cover"
j to tne first, and both crewa art heavily
armed,
, Nearing Uie beach, the leading loat
(is turned round and backed to the sandy
' shoro, care baing taken to keep lt afloat,
Ihe interpreter warning tht crowd of
1 ths long steering oar. The crew keep
r their oars and rifles ready for use, and
the second boat stops about 100 feet out
from the first anil, swinging broadside
ion, its crew seise their rifles and "stand
by" to defeat any attack on their friends.
i The natives, somo of whom are sure to
i bo "returned labor," and consequently
I familiar with "pigeon" English, crowd
1 around near the stern ol the boat and
Bin ot and yell while the interpreter rattles
oil something like the following: ; -
. ''Hello, all you fine fella I How you
do ? You come down to ship, hey V Well)
'b|.oic you want to go on line ship—
tap'n one fine man—you come 'long.
Here, you good fella boy," pointing to
lome gaping native in the crowd, "catch
'em tins'" Hinging some bits of tobacco
ashore, which are promptly fought for.
\"(ict plenty all samo on board ship.
U'lenty yam" (the staple food); "plenty
li ne shirts *, shoes; oh, everything. Malta
you big man you come. 'Spose you ship,
you grit one pound one moon for one
yum," which means tbe man is promised
x) (Str) per month or "moon" for ths
first year, called a "yam," because it
takes that length of tlmo for that esculont
to rlpsn. '
ln the midst of tho profound excite-
, ment produced by this unheard of offer
.a grizzled headed, old ruffian in tha
crowd spoke Dpi
"Whatfor you He, Billy T You think
all this fella boy fool ? Plenty boys ship
here bolo fo' 'el one yam'" (the regular: price paid in tha colonies'. "Why.
you. talk tl one moon?" And the
veteran takes a firmer grip on his battle
ax and Jabbers something contemptuous
of Hilly to the crowd, who thereupon
ibogiui to handle their clubs, gups, bows,
nr rows tad spears furtively but threat-
injil)*.' 1
liilly Is not discouraged. Uo points
to our ling, which tho savages aro quick
to discover is new to them, and by his
cli)i|iiiTiico and liberal showers ol tobacco
mul investments in yams, bananas and
lo.oiiiiuta persuades n few of tho nutives
to "ship,"
Gut they will not do so until a good
slued bundle. Is made up from tho trade

i>:avcd, therefore, two or three yards bf
lurkey red cloth to bo given to the frightful looking, skinny old squaw howling
on tho beach, who claims to bo the
mother bf the "boy1." There is measured
out a handful of gay tails, which w ill
■raodi Ihe anguish ol lire .young female,
who is the departing mini's betrothed!
A musket (an altered Hint lock) is liliil

—Ono of those Itinerant philanthropists
known to tiie vulgar as "quack doctors,"
but whom the local press moro grandiloquently designate "peripatetic sons of
ylrlsculapius," was wont to employ tire
services of a brass band to herald his approach into the larger towns on his

difficulties stood ln the way of his obtaining tlds form of help, As he found
thnt music was always most attractive in
calling attention to Lis speeches advocating the unheard-of virtues of hli pills,
salves, elixirs, and plasters, he decided
to have a hand organ especially made for
iris purposo. Ho gave the order to nn

only thnt tbo tones s muld be loud ami
the tunes popular. Tlie workman who
"pricked" tiro tunes on the barrel was an
Italian, and his knowledge of English
ortl.ngrnpliy somewhat limited, so that
his description of tiio airs was rather
peculiar. When tiro organ reached iti
destination, tire greatest satisfaction was
expressed, bocauso tlio "professor" found

destroys the Appetite, and. when long
continued, causes Enlargement of the
Liver, Inflammation ol the Bowels, and
Piles. Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayer's Pills.
For a numbor of montbs I was
troubled with Gostiveness, In conse-
Xienoe of which I suffered from Loss of
ppetite. Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. I was
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, was unable to boor exposure to tbo light.  I was entirely
CURED BY USING
three boxes of Ayer's Pills. I have no
hesitation in pronouncing this medicino
to be the best cathartic ever made.—
James Socles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, con-i
sequently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and Piles, for years. Ayer's Pills, which
I took at the suggestion ol a friend, havo
given me effectual relief. I commenced
raking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the removal of which has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly im,
proved my general health.—w. Keeler,
Amherst, Mass.
I suffered from Constipation, which
assumed such on obstinate form that I
feared a stoppage of the bowels. Two
boxes ot Ayer's Fills cured me, com-
pletely.—D. Burke, Saco, Me.        tt

Tranbleat the Army Meeting.
Laat night whilo tho Salvation Army
meoting waa in progress a notoriuun
blackguard, named Lethbridge, commenced raising a noise at tho roar uud
of tho hall, thereby disturbing tho
meoting. Whon naked to be quiet
Lethbridge became more uproarious
and finally it be*" -.me necessary to put
him out. Several of tho soldiers were
about to ejoct tho dieturbor whon n,
man named McKay, a friend of Lethbridge, intorfercd, and, a few rowdies
joining in, made it impossible for the
friends of tho Army to restore order. Constable Smith waB sont for
and soon quellod the disturbance.
During the row a young woman, Cadet
Everett, is said to havo beon struck in
the face by McKay. Stops havo been
taken to prosecute both Lethbridge

About ten days ago our good friend
Col. McGregor bado all hia tillicurus
good byo and departed for Victoria,
announcing thnt ho might bu expected
homo in a fow days. Since that timo
his many friends have been anxiously
watching ench dny for hia arrival—feut
the watoh has been in vain. During
the laat few days it haa been whispered (softly uf course), that tho colonel's
many visits to Victoria during the
past few months were nut altogether
"strictly business." It has also been
romarked that ench visit is longer than
tho previous one, and that overy time
he returned homo there waa a more decided look of cheerfulness and contentment on his handsome faco than when
ho loft for tho capital. To tho colonel's
friends all this has but ouo meaning,
aud thoy now broadly hint that somo
fair ono of thu island city lias at lost
ensnared the man who ao long hns beon
proof to thu fascinating wiles of tho
fair sex. It seems rather hard for a
man in the prime of lifo to be entrapped in this way, but, after all, our
fathers shared a similar fato, so it is
not to bo greatly wondered at if Col.
McGregor mee**"* with the snino sad
aflliotion.

ALASKA NEWS,
Arrival of tke Awwm.—Tlif Mining Industry RnomliiK.
Tho season in Alaska was very backward, which has delayed mining operations considerably. At Chilcat there
was a foot; of snow nt the water line,
which is unusual at this time of the
year. Operations in thu basin have
also beon retarded from the samo
cause, but at the timo of departure
it was expected that a few days of
warm weather would romovo the difficulty.
Tho Treadwell mine continues to
work uninterruptedly, and turns out
tho usual quantity of bullion every
month. The output is variously estimated, but those best informed are of
opinion that the minimum yield ia
from 350,000 to $75,000 each month,
which gives to the fortunato owners
mcnthly dividends from 25 to 50 por
cent. Mr. Treadwell is at present in
San Francisco but iB expected up by
tho next steamer to superintend tho
erection uf tho addition to the mill,
which was discontinued last fall whon
tho wet weather commenced. Whon
finished the mill will havo 240 stamps
with a capacity of 000 tons of rock per
day.
Tho stoam schooner Leo was at Juneau whon tho Aiiemi loft, having 50
minors on board bound to Yakitat to
work tho black sand deposits there.
There was considerable excitement
among the miners and of courao great
expectations wore entertained of tlie'
outcome uf the trip. A smnll sloop
named Charlie, which loft for Yakitat
•bout six weeks ago, has not since been
heard from, nnd it was feared sho had
been lost with all on board. Yakitat
Is about 250 miles northwest of Sitka
and not far from Mt. St. Klias.
At Sitka tho oflhialB refused to accept tho bonds of the British vessel
owners engaged in the seal hunting
business, whilst they accepted thoso or
the Americana, whose skills were also
seized. The skins wero sold by otic-
tiou,realizing prices ranging from $3.25
to $3.75 each por skin. They wore
purchased principally by Mr. J. Bos-
cowitz, of this city, who brought thorn

DUMONT IN QUEBEC,    ,
Quebec, April 23.—It appears that
Gabriel Dumnnt was the objector quite
a demonstration on Saturday evoning
at an hotel in St. Roch's, _ whero he
held a regular levee to receive numerous admirers and sympathisers who
called upon him. A concert in his
honor is said to have nlso beon improvised on tho spot, tho Oth battalionjbo-
ing represented by Captnina Lovasseur
and Carnoau and Sergt. Potvin. In
La Jnsticu Dumont has n lottor replying to Tarto'a recent attacks upon
him in Le Canadian, and in tho
courso of which occurs the following passage relative to his object
in visiting tlio Provinco of Quo-
bee: "Whether parties win or lose
somo elections is a matter of most com-
plctoindiil'Qroncc'to mo. I havo not
como here to play a political ^art. 1
am in tho provinco of Quebec solely
to explain tho motives which gavo rise
to tho rebellion in the Northwest, together with tho events that'transpired
during that rebollion."
LACK8 STABILITY.
London, April 20.—Tho Timet today, speaking of Lord Randolph
Churchill's speech last night, in the
houso of commons, says; "His lordship
has, from timo to time, advocated so
many different policies that his appear-
unco ou the sido of tho separatists docs
not causo much surprise, nor forbid tho
hopo that tho noxt engagement will
find him iu the opposition ranks."
IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT,!
London, April 26.—In the house of
commons Mr. James L. Cnrow, member for north Kildaro, moved the second reading of tho Irish county government bill, the principle uf which,
he aaid, was to give to tho people of
Ireland tho control of their sbrictlv local allaira through a council diieetly
olectod by tho pooplo. Mr. Gladst -no
in support of the motion aaid that tho
government had withdrawn ita promise
and had declared that until Ireland
should forego the natural aspiration of
hor peoplo and withdraw her claim to
the establishment of a central authority at Dublin no local govornment hill
for Ireland would be presented. . The
mon, therefore, who did not support
thia bill would become a party co that
declaration. 'Mr. Balfour said politics
in Ireland wero entirely different from
politics in England. ■ The present bo-
cinl wnrfare in Ireland could not continue, and when there should bo an
equality of the conditions ho would
bo ono of tho first to oxooutu what
was now. desired by the people.
Lord Randolph Churchill said that tho
government had iu 1880 pledged itself
to extend to Ireland the same amount
of local liberty enjoyed iu England.
That pledge was tho foundation of tho
unionist party and tho only platform
upon which it could resist the repeal of
the union. If the government relied
merely upon their executive powers, if
it wero going to preach that the Irish
must be looked upon as inferiors, it
might hold that position tor a timo,
but not for long. That was nut a sufficient interpretation of the government's policy, If Ireland had to wait
in tho hands of thu Dublin executive,
conservatives must take care that they
did not expose themselves to a well
directed indictment of reaction. Mr.
Chamberlain opposed thu bill iu a brief
speech. Upon a division the second
reading of tho bill was rejected by a
vote of 282 to 195.
