THE QUEEN
Scenes of Unbounded Enthusiasm in London
Yesterday.
Her Majesty Loyally Greeted
by Thousands of
People.

���:n PRESS.)
-Queen  Viotorlo
and tin' people of the greatest city in
her Empire today celebrated tho victories which they believe hove trims
formed the campaign in South Aftioa
from one of reverse to one of victory.
This in the only explanation of Hip unbounded, the unpnrnlelled enthusiasm
viih which hundreds of thousands
kail their sovereign. In many ways
these demonstrations outdid those of
the Diamond Jubilee although there
were no glittering pageants, no triuin-
jilnil an'hi'H, no procession of princes,
hut only a dozen Life Guards followed
by a lady in the plainest black cob-
time, who had uonie for a few day's
stay at Buckingham Palace an ahe had
done many a time before, yet her hold
npon the hearts of her people was
probnbl) never more strikingly manifested. Unlike that of the Diamond
Jubilee today's popular outburst WAS
almost impromptu. The exaltation in
the strength of a mighty Empire that
pervaded Loudon when the Queen last
drove through the streets in 181)7, gave
place to genuine thankfulness and rejoicing for the victories which had
succeeded the months of gloom.
The denth of feeling which these demonstrations represented could oirfy be
gunged by those who mingled with the
crowd. Mothers in deep mourning for
sous killed on the held of battle, straggled bravely with the most hilarious to
catch a glimpse of the Queen whose
womanly sympathy and thoughtful
ni'ss for the soldiers had touched then
hearts. Often the long, cold vigils
wire rendered futile by tears thai
dimmed the eves mid blurred the vision us tlmHuyal carriage passed. Af
one very old woniau said. "I've set u
her many a time, but she said she was
wary for my boy and I must see her
again afnre I die." Thousands bravid
tile law cast wind nnd stood for hou.s
waiting patiently who have often seen
the Queen and who in ordinary circumstances would scarcely have endured the hardship to watch her pass
Among these wero many personal
friends of the Sovereign, for instance,
the Countess of BrowiiUnv, a gre.n
friend of Victoria, and a favorite at
ccuit, who sat on the cuib, shivering
for boms with the ctowd outside
Buckingham Palace. Iu short it was
not so much a desire to see He monarch as it was an overwhelmii ng need
ol an outlet fcr jubilintlou over the
war and a natural inclination to lot
the Queen *ce and shaie the gladness
of her pcuplu that prompted London
spontaneously today to make memorable celebration of Victoria' s reign.

rejoicings that marked tho relief 01

the people hem obstreperous, Mote-
over, Interrainlged with the rejoicings
of patriotism thero was a particularly
keen appreciation of tho Quean's personalities, her womanly qualities,great
age and closcnu-s lo the poorest of her
subjects. This little touch of reverence
for sex, rather than for sovereignty,
rendered the huge crowds perfectly
tractable in the hands of tho good nu-
tared police nnd it was not a hard task
to induce them to surge back and to
make way for tho Koynl carriage
When the Queen of Great Britain and
Ireland and tho Empress of India did
puss, nodding as if to many friends Instead of bowing with royal restraint,
there echoed under tho roar of cheers,
many   heartfelt   expressions   such   as
God bless her,1' "ut,d keep her,"
"My, but she's a bravo womun, " and
scores of the like, it was no wonder
Hint now and again tenrs of joy rolled
down the cheeks of tho aged sovereign.
Tun Queen's entry into -London, the
commencement of her visit to tbo me-
tropohB.was marked by scenes of gteat
enthusiasm, nupuralluled since tho
Jubilee celebrations and cheers that
niaoc tho niuilty streets ring wero almost ii�� much j��� h011(ll. n( t|1B British
victories in Smith Africa as they were
vooiferoua tributes of a loyal people to
a monarch whose womanly sympathy
has been strikingly shown since the
war began. For hours before the
Vjneen started for London, crowds
gathered in the streets which had been
"iinnunccd as her route through the
metropolis and which wero decorated
wHh lings. It was foggv and cold

Duke and D> .,i York  drove   into

Mr. Joseph niiiibcrlain, the Secretary of State for the Colonies, joined
unnoticed the distinguished throng in
the court yard. Later the Dnko nod
Duchess of York appeared on a balcony
iu front of tho Palace, Then from
Constitution Hill came the dull roar of
distant cheers and the nry, "She is
coming" was passed from month to
mouth. A patrol of police went by,
followed by a Hash of steel as tho Life
Guardsmen and outriders tiotled
through the gates; all hats Mow in the
air, a mighty cheei arose and thero
passed a carriage, on the back seat of
which sat a little black figure heavily
veiled and nodding right nnd left.
Suddenly,for the llrst time in the day,
the hud omiio out from behind tho
clouds and shone over the shouting
thousands and piercing tho veil it
showed happy smiles lighting the aged
monarch's (ace. It was a repetition of
the scones of tho .lubilee, nnd there
was   Quuuu's   weather   in   the   truest
sense.
A quaint ceremony occurred when
the Queen's carriage stooped at Temple liar,wlieu the Lord Mayor, Mr. A.
N. Newton, solemnly handed Her Majesty tbo Sword of Slate. With a smile
the Queen touched it and returned it
to the Chief Excutivo saying: "Thank
you for all that ray u ity has done."
To this the Mayor replied: "Your
Gracious Majesty's words will forever
he treasured in my heart."
When the Life Guaids trotted on,
the purple and ermine robes and tho
gorgeous uniforms of the City Marshall and Sheriffs and Aldermen with
their gold laced flunkeys and lumber*
ing slate conches, wero left behind
and the Queen drove quickly along tho
Embankment which was black with
cheering people. Accompanying Her
Majesty wore the Princess Chrislain of
Schleuwig-Holstoin nnd Princess
Henry of Battcnborg. The Life Guards
trotted on through tho great streets
of the city which were everywhere
thronged. The cortege passed so
quickly that tho crowds scarcely had
a chance to cheer before tlm constant l>
bowing mnuiircu bad passed out of
sight, liy live, o'clock tho Queen, rj-
ing by way of HolbOTU aud Oxford
Street had returned to Uuekiugham
Palace. The drive had been so hastily
planned that no organized attempts nt
decoration had been cairied out hut
considering the sh irt Spaoe of time it
was astonishing to see tho Dumber of
Hags which appeared along the mute
followed by Her Majesty. Many
American Hags were displayed hy
Americun concerns and hy Americans
on I ho streots.
The scene in the quadrangle of the
palace after the Queen's arrival when
Lords and Commoners joined in singing the National Anthem was unprecedented aud will probably n >ver he
repeated: Viscount Cross and Mr.
Chamberlain acted as spokesmen and
graciously greeted tho Koval visitor
hut it wiis lo Lady Bnller that the
Quean quiokly turned with a grateful
smile. Then, in tliP presence of the
legislators of tho United Kingdom,
drawing the wife of the reliever of
l.adysinith closer to her, she whispered
words of thanks. After scarcely two
hours of rest, Her Majesty made n
tour of the city proper amid the greatest enthusiasm, it is impossible to

Boers appear to have made no stand
whatever except that while in retreat
they twice repulsed Gonoral French's
cavalry with rifle file. As no report
has been mane of tho capture of prisoners, the enemy probably got ii'vay
with their entire foice. Genornl
Freuoh is still following them and
keeping between them and Blooiufou-
tein. The evacualiou of the northern
districts of Cape Colony is now netirl}
complete. The British are in possesion of tho railroad crossing. 'Die military critics comment upon the discouraging news from Mafeking. Colonel Baden-Powell seems to he in grave
need of outside help otherwise ho
would not allow the correspondent, to
send out information respecting the
distress of tbo ginrisan. A readjustment of some of tho higher commands
is taking place. General White is to

Her Majesty
came   down   tho  station Ispeotntcli
through which she passed before reluming to Buckingham Palace, but
the numbers were well up in the hundreds of thousands. In response to a
niessago from the Lord Mayor this
evening Sir Arthur Bigg, the Queen's
private secretary, wrote: "Her Majesty is not fatigued and she is much
gratified and touched by the loyal and
enthusiastic reception accorded hir
through out this afternoon's drive."
The evening advanced, the crowds increased, red fire was burned, and tbo
whole concourse took up "God Save

Tho crowd ontside Buckingham Palace hud increased shortly before midnight to 800,000 persons, all singing
patriotic songs. Finally tho Princo of
Wales and Duke of York came upon
the balcony uud vociferous cheering
followed. A few minntcs Inter they
disappeared and then the Queen
herself, accompanied by several lndits,
made her appearance. After the National Anthem,u perfect roar of sound,
nnd never to bo forgotten cheers, the
blinds of the palace wore drawn, hut
thousands remained to sing and cheer.

Horse, who number nbout 800, had a parade this forenoon from their quarters
at Lansdowne Park to Parliament Hill.
There wero many thousands of people
present to receive the men on their arrival on Parliament Hill. Among those
present wore Lord nnd Lady Minto,
Sir Wilfrid Lanrier, Sir Louis Dnvies,
and Messrs. Borden, Fielding, Doboll,
Blair, Patterson, Scott, Sutherland,
Tarte, Mnlook, Sir Charles Topper and
neai ly all tbu Members and Senators
in tho citv. Mrs. Borden presented
Colonel Steelo with four guidons,
which were tho gift of tho Indies of
the civil service. Colonel Steele m-
lurned thanks in a few brief words.
Sir Wilfrid Lnurier said timt ho was
kind of the privilege to address Colonel
Steele, and the officers and men of
Slrathcona's Horse and to sny farewell
to them on their mission to Sonth Africa, foi which Lord Struthcoua in his
munificence had given them an opportunity. Lord Strathcona was one of
those men, who wns au honor to mankind and to his country. By his ou-
ergy, industry and business habits he
had been able to accumulate a large
fortune, which ho held as trustee for
the people and for tho benefit of tho
country more tliuu anything else. The
Premier paid a compliment to Colonel
Steele who hud been personally engaged iu the Hervico of his country and
who hud brought the far west into an
enjoyment of the benefits of civilization uud the advantages of law and order. Ho (Col, Steele) waB now on a
somewhat ditferent mission but one
which he hoped would end in the
same way, and that he would also aid
iu bringing a beaten but noble foe to
the merey of British rule. "From all
my heart," suid the Premier, 'I Wish
you God speed, Be true to your
country and your country will bo true
to your inomory and oi thoeo who have
gone before yon, and above all things
be Canadians. (Cheers). Sir Charles
Topper followed. He agreed with the
sentiments expressed by the Premier
and spoke of Ins addiess in Boston the
other day, when be testified to the
loaylty of the French-Canadians.
He also referred to the great muni-
Qcenoe of Lord Strathcona who was
sending them to the front and conoh'ri-
ed by wishing them Godspeed. Dr.
Uorden presented n pair of glasses,
which were the gift of a nomber of the
members of Parliament, to Colonel
Steelo. The Minister of Militia made
a neat and appiopiiute speech and in
doing so said the friends of Colonel
Steele wore numbered by all who knew
him and his admirers wero tho whole
population of the Dominion. "When
you nso these glasses," said the Minis
ler of Militia, "von will remember
our prnyers and kind wishes of a nation, God speed, success and a sn'e return to yourself aud those men who
acooinpany you."
Colonel Steele said that the kind
wordB which bad been spoken would
no a great encouragement to them all
in their work. Lord Minto, also made
a brief speech referring to the timo be
had served with Colonel Steele iu 1885,
Lord Strathcona's great gift and to the
confidence with which tbo country
looked to the regiment to do its duty.
"I hope," he said in conclusion,
"that you leturn with honor and
glory."
Dr. Borden referring to sending off
100 men to recruit the first regiment
���aid that it was not likely the Department would go west of Toronto in selecting so small a number. He said
that if they were not ready in time to
go with the Monterey, they could he
sent Inter hy u boat which was going
to take Canadian hay to Sonth Africa.
Iu the House of Commons today, Mr.
Mnlook moved the third reading of tho
Redistribution Bill. Mr. Speaker
waited to see if any one waa going to
i oak and not seeing anyone attempting to do so called out "carried."
Bennett (Blraooe), rose to sponk amid
cries of "chair." Mr. Speaker said
the bill was earned. Tupper appealed to him to allow Bennott to proceed
and Lnurier said thorn was no intention to shut off tbu discussion. Mr.
Speaker said that with the consent of
the Honse the diecuBSiou might proceed. McNeill moved that clause two,
nf i.id, sen on, two, be amended by adding to section two, "irrespective of
any consideration to tho balauco of
political parties in the several const it
iietioies. So that the olause would
read. "The letters patent, appointing
ibo commissioners shall direot them,
iu making the divisions to consider the
dlstrhntiou of population, referrng to
the latest census of Canada,publio convenience and such divisions us appear
to them best calculated to do substantial justice irruBpeetive of auy consideration ni to tho balance nf political
parties iu the several constituencies. '
l.nmier was surprised that such a
Britisher as McNeill would suggest nn
Imperial statute to over contain even
a reference to either political party
and that evidently McNeill was taking his inspirations from Washington.
if he   wouid  reflect, said
would not press such nu  amendment, i
Tupper did not approve of tho amendment and McNeill withdrew it.

That all words after "that" bo struck

opinion of Ibis House, it is expedient
to intronucu In place of the present
bill a measure based on the following
provisions: First, that a commission to
consist of the chief justices of the
highest courts of judictature in each of
tho Provinces of Canada shall be appointed for the purposo of fixing tho
boundaries of each constituency entitled to elect a member or members of
the House of Commons in ouch Province of Canada,and of determining the
number of members to be elected for
oaoh constituency in accordance with
the British North America Act; second, that such commission in so doing
shall consider tho distribution of population according to the then latest
census of Canada and the public interest and convenience nnd shall particularly hnve regard to the principle of
representing by population and shall
also regard as fur ns practicable to the
boundaries of counties, municipalities
aud cities ; third, that such commission
shall be appointed as soon as possible
after the completion of the next census
and shall complete their work with
all convenient speed."
Lnurier, iu replying to Tapper's
amendment, said that it was entirely
irrelative to the bill before the House.
Ho would not therefore discuss its
merits although he congratulated the
leader of the Opposition on being now
converted to the value of a Redistribution Bill. The uni 'lirimeut ho provided for redistribution after the next
census, while the bill contemplated
redistribution before tho census so ns
to remedy evils which were enacted by
the bills of 1?83 and 1893. Montague

Mr. Whyte, manager of O, P.
lines west nf Port William made
important announcement to The Miner
last night. Yesterday Mi. Whyte, Mr.
Marnoie, general superintendent of
the Pacific division, Mr. Thus. Tait,
manager of lines east of Fort William,
aud other officials went fully into tho
matter of the company's accommodation here uud it was decided to proceed at onr.o with the erection of a depot, freight shed, round honse and
coai pockets nnd the laying of at least
threo miles of sidetracks. This will
make Nelson nn important divisional
oentre in every sense of I he word.
As outlined by Mr. Whyte, tie improvements will he ns follows: A largo
depot and office building will bo erected at the foot of Baker Street, where
that street intersects Slocan Street.
The plans for the depot have not yet
been finally decided upon but I hey are
receiving attention now and no delay
will bo made in determining the nature and size of the building, It will
be nu imposing structure and will he a
great ornament to the City. Captain
Troup and Mr. Gntelius, the latter of
whom will he moved here ut once, and
the train master and dispatchers will
have offices in this building and tho
telegraph, ticket and district freight
agent's offices will be in an uptown
block, probably in the one to be erected by Messrs. Kirkpatriok, Wilson and
Clements. All tho other buildings will
ho north and west of the depot, the
latter being on the south side of the
main line and the other buildings on
tho north. The publio will therefore
cioss no tracks in visiting the depot
or otllceB. The freight shed will he
as large ns the company deems will
be required for years o come nnd will
ho over twice as large us the present
one. It will be located on the high
ground ucross the fiat from the depot
site. The round house will be nearer
the lake and in it will he included u
machine shop, winch will he used for
car repairing until surh time a-j the
traffia demands a building for this
work alone. Coal pockets will bo
erected iu a convenient place for loading engines. The sidetracks will cover
the whole flat aud the work on them
will be a most important thing as it
has been estimated that the grading
alone will involve an expenditure of
120,000. The tracks will be laid above
the level of the flat iu order to avoid
trouble from high water.
As to the question of total expenditure Mr. Whyte said that no estimate
.���noM be made nntil all the plans wire
filially decided upon. The work would
lie pushed, he said, iu order that
everything would he in readiness by
the fall. As work on all the buildings
and side trucks will be proceeded
with at the same time a large number
of men will be employed mid a great
d"iil of money will consequently be put
���u circulation in Nelson this Bummer
as a result of tho O. P. K. 's decision

will have a large army of workiiiginen
spending their wages with its merchants. When the buildings and yairis
are completed n large number of men
will hi engaged in and around them
which will mean many more families
to swell Nelson's population. Mr.
Whyto's announcement also settles for
ever the fact that Nelson is to he (ho
most important railway centre���in fact
the only big railway centre in Southern British Columbia.
The house recently occupied by Mr.
H. K. BoiibIbv will he used for the
time being by Captain Troup and]Mr.
(lutelius, who will take up office quarters there at once.
Winnipeg, March 8.���The Tribune
says tonight.: "A great deal of comment has been arouaed by the statement, marie by Premier Mucdonnld at
Necpawa, that should the Hou. Mr.
Davidson be defeated, the Parliament
will be dissolved and a new eleotion
held. Mr. H. W. Hastings, the Con-
seravtive Organizer, was seen in regard to the report and stated that be
understood it to bo a correct statument
of what Mr. Macdonald had said, adding that he considered it n very advisable step to take under tho circumstances. It would give the country another opportunity to assert its confidence iu the existing government.

FIRE IN   PARIS.
'fftl
Paris, March 8.���The famoos Theatre
Francais has been destroyed hy fire.
Tho Theatre Fraucnifl or Corned ie
Francais, was situated on the Place du
Theatre Francais, near tho Palais
Koyale, and occupied the highest rank
among the theatres of France. It was
built in 1782, but wns much altered iu
later years and contained many magnificent specimens of art in sculpture,
relief Mid painting. The lack of
steam fire engines wns largely responsible fir the rapid spread nf the fire.
The filemon apparently relied on the
ordinary pressure from the wilier
mams and tins wns not sufficient to
curry water to the upper purt of (he
building. A battalion of troops arrived on the scene and assisted in the
salvage of tbu valuable library aud
1 an hives.

NELSON   DAILV   MINER, FRIDAY, MARCH cj, 1900

iN Olson Daily Miner
I'ubllsiiiHi Hatty oxconl Monday.
NKI.SIIN  MlNKIt  I'HINTINU  St PUBLISHING CO
11   1    BEATON, Kditorand Mnuagor.
NO PARISH POLITICS.
Governor has thrown iii his way. A
man strong enough tu form a Government can complete bias task within the
few days i cssury to, BtSAmble his colleagues; no other is expected to try it.
Tho seasons are not to wait on Mr.
Martin. That is not the custom iu
such oasis, and as it is not he must fill
his Cabinet without whining loi time
or take himself olT.
More than once daring recent days
the RUggestlon has been made that the
Kiioten.iys   should   unite   ill     electing
representatives who would go to Victoria pledged to promote local Interests, wthont regard to conditions elsewhere. The Piovinoe is split up into
factions, it is said ; let iib have a faction, too, with the understanding that
it will devote itself exclusively to the
interests of our own district. Wu hope
there are very few who will take this
low and narrow view of their responsibilities as oiliz.tiis of a great Province.
It would be a much nobler ambition if
wo should endeavor to make it our
mission to break up tho factions tli.it
already exist, and to bring to all a full
realisation of the fact that whatever is
best for the Province as a whole is best
for each of its pints. That would ho a
brand of polities that would do us
somo credit. Every representative u
expected to keep u watchful eye over
the local interests with which bo is
directly entrusted; but no patriotic
uithten oan desire to see the Province
split up into sections, each having itB
faction, aud ull struggling the one
against tho other.
We do not understand that the Conservative convention to he held in
Nelson shortly is called out of sympathy with this unworthy suggestion.
The Miner is firmly persuaded thut
this Province will never enjoy stable
uud progressive government until Fod-
erul parly linos are drawn, and our
affairs are conducted undor that deeper
seiiBO of responsibility which belongs
to government by party. There may
he good reason to regret that the Coast
politicians are uniting to maintain
the present hybrid system. It is
thought that there are special circumstances which would render its
continuance for n brief time longer of
advantage to the Piovinco. The situation is not yet sulliciently developed to
enable us to judge of the expediency
of this course, an I having to rest content with present Information we
would be glad to see the Kootenny
Conservatives   force   the hands of   the
politicians elsewhere nnd compel them
to adopt party liu'js. That, we take
it, is the object of the coming convention. It may he (hat before its mooting there will be developments which
will change its purpose. But in any
event The Miner hopes and believes
that in whatever is done the first and
greatest regard will he had for the in-
totests of the Province ns a whole.
Let us leave parish   politics   to parish
politicians.	
The Province newspaper, of Vancouver, that speaks for the Ottawa Liberals, is very emphatic iu its repudiation
of that alleged Liberal uudorsutiou of
Mr. Martin. 11 thus explains the matter: "Saturday evening's meeting
wns simply, to uso a phrase of the
day, 'it put up job,' desigued by members of the executive committee of the
Liberal Association nnd some of their
friends, who were conspicuous members of the Headman's Island ciri/.ens'
committee which met with such signal repulse and repudiation nt the lust
municipal elections It wus a packed
meeting attended almost wholly hy
Mr. Martin's supporters, included
among whom wore u number of complete strangers and boys, who were not
members of the Association, mid who
are not even on tho voters' lists, but
who were permitted to voto for Mr.
Martin nnd who helped to swell the
two-thirds majority of those present
which ho received. If there had been
any desire for fair play or uny wish
On the part of those who wero engineering the gathering to keep faith
wilh the public, these bins would not
have been brought iu to puck the meeting and vote for Mr. Martin."
NO EXCUSE   FOR   DELAY.
Nothing in the present political situation has more surprisxl the country
than the remarkable change that hsi
come over the spirit of The Vancouver
World's dreams. While Mr. Martin wus
a mere member of a party opposed to
Tnrnerism,tO use (he favorite phrase, it
unceasingly warned the people that he
ho was a man who wns not to trnsted.
It raked np his old Mimitobn record to
show that ho was treacherous ns a
friend and unprincipled ns an enemy.
It opposed Ins election in Vancouver,
pursued him while a Minister, and
hud not it good word to say of him
during the months he forced himself
into (lie position of an ally of tho Opposition. All this time ho wns a dangerous man ; but now thut he is Premier, with the absolute authority that
goes with the position, The World is
disposed to think kindly and speak favorably of him. It would like to see
this dui gerons man at tho head oi a
Government, with full power to do ns
he  pleases.
It Is an extraordinary change, hut it
is no concern of The Miner's to quarrel with it. Under the political con
ditions that prevail in this Province,
men and newspapers are evidently
privileged to chop about with every
new wind. Wo assume this fiotu the
fact (hut they do chop about. But we
Venture to point out to The World that
the average elector will require some
better pleading than the following in
excuse for Mr. Martin's delay in completing his Cabinet: "Iu tbo trying
position in which the Premier finds
himself hu asks for that measure of
justice and fair piny to which be
claims ho is entitled, and which is
characteristic of British institutions. "
This is the veiiest fudge. In the first
place the position is of his own seeking; it can ho said with troth that he
reached it after much plotting that
would do little credit to any concerned
in it. The circumstances do not permit that justice and fair piny ho invoked in his bebalf, He has undertaken a task, and the only thing to do is
to perform it. II was his duty to consider the difficulties beforehand, and
he should have been prepared to go
through with it ill spite of them. No
consideration of justice or fail play is
involved iu the matter. The World's
plea means that Mr. Martin is to be
given weeks, months if necessary, to
pxploit the opportunity the Lieutenant-

nlflesnce of tho Queen's visit to Irn-
1111111 mill her ordor in regard to tho
Boldle's wearing tho Khainrock on Bl.
Pattiok's Day. The following from
The Times and from tbo Radical Liberal Ohroniole may be taken na oxani-
plas of the whole trend of tho London
editorials, Tho Times says: "Tbo
Queen, it is evident, ha* boon deeply
moved by the courage and devotion of
ber Irish troop* and haM been tliiuking
of tbo means liy which she can lit
convey to them and thoir fellow countrymen the gratitude she feolH fur their
services   so   geiiorotiMly   and ho loyally
rendered to hoi  throne.   Wo cannot
doubt the musses of   Irish  people   will
cordially appreciate the spirit by
which the Royal visit will be made.
The tjiieen kooh amongst thorn us I be
representative of no party and no political cause. Kho goes to pay an honor and a compliment to the Irishmen
ot the nation. Thtre are of course ir-
recomiables in Ireland who will be ilo-
llgllted tn mar the success nf the
Queen's visit if they could find a pretest. It must bo tho buHiuesB of those
responsible for the conduct of Her Majesty 's Journey and tho arrangements
during her stay not tn give them a
pretext. If it bo made clear to the people Hint the Ijueeu has come unionist
1 liein only to thank therm for what
their relatives bavo done for hei, thoy
will pay little Imil to tho instigations
"f Hie disloyal ami give ber it ro>ul
Welcome v illi all the t'ollio fervoi of
their hearts."
The Ohroniole ssysi "The motive
which prompted Ibe visit dnubtioBH is
a destte tn see uud bo Been by the
Irishmen   in   their  homes anil coniri
bote dlreotly to the final reconciliation
which bulb nations   equally desire but
winch the nationalists seem to strenuously resist. Another reuwiu, more
political though scarcely Stronger, exists in the wish of Her Majcely   tn   iln
spei mi honor to the part nf her dominions which bus furnished no ninny ,f
her must galluiit and devntod soldiers.
Nothing cniilil bo better inspired anil
more auspicious than this twofold
message to Ireland nf the Queen'H consideration end esteem. "
In   the    House   of   Commons   today
Mr. John Redmond, the Irish Nation*
iii-i leader, declared the Irish people
have received with gratiflculinn tho
nnnonnemenl thai Her MnjeHty has di-
rei-teil that tlm Khumrock be worn by
the Irish regiments on Ht, Patrick s
Day, adding that the Irish people
w, ill'! welcome thiH graceful lecogni-

with respect the venerable sovereign
iiliniil to visit the Irish shore, well
knowing thai on this occasion no ut-
tempi would bo made to give the visit
am  party   significance   und   that   tho
chivalrous  hospitality  would  not he
taken In iiionii any abatement of their
demands    fnr   nulionul   rights   which
they would continue to press until conceded.    Mr.    Redmond      wuh   loudly
obeered.
Dublin, March s. ��� Commenting on
the proposed visit of Cjueon Victoria to
Ireland next month, The Daily Independent says : "The Naiimiali-ls will
nave no other dcHin hut that Her Majesty should receive at tho builds of
the Irish tho respectful welcome due
to her exalted station and her high
personal character." Tho Daily Express, after remarking that the visit
is Intended as a most marked nud most
notable expression of Her MaJasty'S in
debtednees to the "Gallant irishmen
who have served her* so nobly in her
hour Jot' anxiety.," curdially assures
the Qneen that she will receive the

^course taken in extending his tenure of
''office. The only observation which I
have to make is that the Question implies that thifl extension is u reward
for valuable service. I think it is
rather the other wny. It is to Lord
Paunoefote that we hnve to express our
[banks that he has been kind enough
to undertake the work for another
period. We have every cause to express
tn Lord Paunoefote our gratitude thut
at a critical time, and when his remarkable experience and singular aptitude for the peculiar duties of his oflico
rendoi it desirablo that be should continue In it, he has cousented to do
so."
Lord Kimberley, the Liberal leader
in the House of Lords, associated himself with the eulogy passed on Lord
Paunoefote.
