"Well, that's your business. But I

oi er it, if you will, and take your own
time about it. When you havo made
up you mind, let me know."
Thus the. matter rested when we
pnrteiffi and 1 tin-illy sent word to him,
through Donnelly, that, for rea ins
which I did not think it necessary to
iiienti-in, I had decidrd not to have
anything to do with the business.
I never saw Donnelly but once after
that. He wns, doubtless, much clis-
nppointed, and considered that my re
fusal to undertake to run one or two

The Inca, on bo»rd which I had
shipped, and which lay at the head of
the wharf, was a large, new brig, of
three hundred and eleven tons, bound
tn Havana. She was to have six men
and two boys before the mast, which
number, with the captain, first and
second mates and 'cook, would bring
her complement up to twelve, all told.
Now and then I saw some old salt who
was to go in her shuffling up and do*n
the wharf, while Capt Moore himself
bustled about to superintend the
It was before the day nf deck cabins,
and the only house which the Inca had
above-board was the galley. So that
her wide, sweeping decks, from the
Ufirail to the night-heads, showed to
great advantage. Her bulwarks wn
about three feet, and a half high, h-r
sheer was graceful, and her spars were
the very-perfection of symmetry.
"That's a good looking brig, and n
good brig, too, by the looks of her," re
marked a fatherly old tar on the
He was going in her, and I was very
proud to tell hint that so also was I.
He took me on hoard with  him, show-
•ng me this thing aud that; how the
cle» garnet wat belayed here, aud lhe
reef-tackle tl.-ie, how the forward
braces led aft, and tbe after brace, led
forward ; ho* the tryaail was brailed
up, and b„« the finilapiaan lijsail
was furled n, ita netting Nothing
further was wanting to bind me to that
old sailor than tb, interest |„. toofc in
my nautical education.
At the tame lime there wa*loitering
aboul decks another aelt, who only
growled suis-ring at souk- of my 1*1
mark* upon sea life, and whom I in
attnetively disliked and dreaded. Hi*
name waa Dick, while that of the mure
social tar was Jack.
A few days later, all hands were
mustered on Ixmrd, and we went down
the harbor witb a sharp west north
wester,—I all th« time thinking of the
grand spectacle which our brig under
full sail must preseut to the boys on
shore. It was an abundant gratili
cation to me to feel tbat they, every
one, knew aie to he on beard of
Briskly enough, I flew up and down
ths. rigging or ran about the decks,
helping the men as well as I knew bow.
But how angry old Dick became with
me, because, in my ignorance of
nautical courtesy and my desire to
perforin some conspicuous service, I
crowded in front of him, as all hands
were ridiug down the fore tack. He
flung me aside with bis big paw, .*,
that I pitched against the foremast
Before I was aware of it, we were
away out to sea; and the beautiful
brig was going off witb both royals set,
at a rate which showed her to be a very
fair sailor for a WestTndiaman. How
the spray flew from her bows as sbe
dashed, rolling and pitching, along !
How the niaiu brace tautened, and the
trysail sheet tugged at its block ! And
Jet how easy wa* every motion of tho
deep and excellent vessel' More than
once old Jack murmured hin satisfaction.
"I allow that this is a good brig," he
Evidently Capt. Moore was a great
man for carrying sail, a characteristic
wliich appoared pleasing to tho most
of the crew. But old Dick was not
pleased with anything, and he re.
marked —
"If the old man don't take in them
r'yals, he'll stretch them new backstays till he carries the r'yalmasts out
of ber."
It answered just at wall as anything
elBe to growl about.
Tn the first dog-watch, however, we
furled the ryals," and soon after, as
the wind increased, took in the fore-
topgallantsail and mainsail, and singe
reefed the topsails.
And thus, through the gusty September night, the Inca kept fast and
steadily on. The trysail gaff creaked
with tho swing of the sail ; the fore
topmast-staysail slat, as it was becalmed
by ihe other canvas; tho foresail and
the two topsails pulled with mighty
strength ; and the main topgallantsail,
away up against the clear sky, looked
beautifully white in the beams of the
moon. The second mate had the
evening watch, us did also old Jack,
to whose yarns I listened eagerly as
lie sat beside me on the windlass
I had lieen seasick a very little, as
we first cleared the land, but the un
pleasant feeling had now passed uway
Jim Beane, however, the otlier boy,
was completely off his legs, and it was
all thai he could do to get up from the
deck sufficiently to pass hia contri
hutions to Neptune over the lee bul
warks. It seemed, he said, as if the
top of his head wus lifted oft'whenever
the brig sank in the trough of the sea
And the monotonous "0 dears !'' that
escaped his lips, twe, every few
minutes, accompanied with what he
had eaten the day before, The sailors,
who knew that such things must be,
paid uo attention to him ; but I could
not help going to his side now and then
and asking him if he felt better.
"A'n't the' a hatchet some
wheres," said Jim, "that you can knock
me in the head with f 0 dear! O
dear I Ar ryo oo-ark ! ar roo oo-ark !
A'n't tho' a hatchet?
Even the sailors took notice euough
of him to laugh at him ; and Jack said
there was no hatchet about decks,—
nothing smaller than the cook's have In
tho galley. Then they began to tell
Jim of remedies: mince pies and
i molasses, and good warm biscuit with
honey on it ; fish chowder, and toast-
But happily he was too far gone to
take in the full force of their ohsei-
vations. They tried also, to encourage
him by remarking that he had now
only the '"symptoms,' and that these
generally lasted about nine day before
s"asickness reallv set in.
"You will be all over it iu a month
br two," they said. And Jim took in
enough of the tremendous import of
! this ltst consoling information to put
more vehemence into his "ar-roo-oo-
ark," and to call ont again for the
lam thin   particular with   tbe incidents of the first   night   out.   because
then the   most  simple   thing   made a
strong impression upon me.

Tbe   Eastern   compliration   is   ttill

we don't at this raoaient see how a conflict is to be avoided.    Ruisia pretends
to have  conceded   the condition  that
Bulgarian affair, shall be submitted to
a conference ofjthe Powers in conformity with the treaty of Berlin, but this action on her part is  merely recultr pour
mieux sauter.      Her entire  traditional
policy is involved in  the subjection of
Bulgaria, and the control of that country as the most direct way to Constantinople.    It is amusing to read the letters
of Times correspondents,' who air their
diverse opinions on the subject ii} a remarkable manner.    The majority, however, adopt the only sensible views in
relation to the position of England, and
her undoubted duty to preserve the integrity of the Turkish Empire as against
Russian conquest.     This  is no lucre
sentiment, it is simply self-preservatio-i.
Not only woul-f the ixwaes's-on of the
Dardanelles fender Russia' overwhelmingly powerful in Europe, but it would
so seriously cripple British trade, as to
justify a long and costly war in its preservation. Happily, England can count
on her old  faithful  ally Austria, and
there are material advantages sufficient
to secure the adhesion of Italy.    If the
French had only got over their difficulty
with Germany they would willingly lend
a hand against Russia, but they are too
much engrossed with the idea of paying
off the score incurred by Germany in
1871, to care about the consequences
in the East, of Russian aggression.    If
Germany could only be   induced to
make the Rhine the French boundary,
Russian aggression would cease for the
next fifty years, at least.    But this cannot be.    If the French secure the Rhine
for a boundary, it will be after Germany
is so enfeebled that she is unable to
longer   to   defend   her   conquests  in
Alsace and I-orraine.   There can be no
doubt about the feeling of dread and
aversion with which the Balkan States
regard  Russia.    They only require the
assurance that they will be supported
by Austria and England, to oppose any
Russian advance, notwithstanding the
lavish  distribution of coin by Rus-'ian
agents.    Tbe race affinity with  Russia
does not seem to have much weight
with them ; they look upon the Muscovite as a relative they would rather disown, and would be glad to see him emigrate.      It is highly probable that a
confederation of the Balkan States, including Greece and Turkey, will  ultimately be formed for mutual  defense
against  Russia,  but not for any other
purpose.     They have   all   their race
claims to settle, Greeks, Serbs, and Bul-
gars, and that will be the sequel to the
repulsion of Russia, if that takes place,
I'he thorough conquest   of   Upper
Burmah by the British is now in a fair
way of being completed, and recent explorations clearly show that the conquest
will be well worth  the trouble and cost
of the undertaking.     A large extent of
splendid fertile land and great mineral
wealth has  been found to exist in the
interior.    The thorough conquest of the
country and the establishment of good
government,  will not   only ensure the
possession of  all this wealth   to  the
British  Empire,  but it will have iu
effect in extending British prestige, not
only throughout Burmah, but in  the
Shan States, Siam and even in China,
where it is a matter of the utmost importance that we should be respected.
We need hardly remind oui  readers,
that an alliance between England and
China is One of the most serious possible misfortunes for Russia,  if we are
driven to war with the latter power.
China at this moment could furnish
such armies as enabled Genghis Kahn
to conquer almost the whole of Asia,
many centuries ago.     Her hostility to
Russia is of old date, the latter power
having lopped off quite a number of
provinces from the Mongolian Empire ;
and, a few *****ars ago, attempted to take
possession of Kuldja, whjch would have
involved the loss of the fertile province
of Ills.     So   great   is   the estimation
formed  by the Russians of  Chinese
power, that when China demanded the
restitution of Kuldja,  it was at once
given up.   We can, from this, form an
estimate of the value of Chinese friendship for  England,  and this   will   no
doubt, be put to the test in the event of
hostilities between England and Russia.
But the thorough conquest and the assurance to Burmans, that life and property will be secure under the British
Government, will give such an impetus
to trade in Burmah and the surrounding states,  that prosperity will  once
more reign supreme in the British Isles,
and discontent will be no more heard.
I The English people will begin to understand the falsity of Radical arguments, and the Conservatives will have
a long lease of power.

en.    Prohibition is
which the Methodists  or a certain *>or-1
tion of them, hope to step into |x>litical /
influence.     They   are  at   last, finding,
however,  that the game is played out ;
that the evils created by prohibition are
far greater than those  it is supposed to
cure.     While the license system was in
full  force men made beasts of themselves  as they do now  with the most
stringent  prohibition law in force, bul

are compelled tq l_pt the sttifl in secret,

of such horrible potions, they not only
pay their  money, but become habitual
hy.|iot:ritcs and liars.    It is not only of
the ruin that is inflicted on 'lhe bodies
and souls of men   by prohibition, that
people  in  prohibition cities   have   to
complain,   it   is   the payment of the
revenue to illicit vendors of bad whisky,
caused  by the suppression of licenses.
The  natural  teetotaler,  the temperate
man and the  moderate drinker, alike,
have to pay additional rates and taxes,
because a few scheming hypocrites desire to have  political  power   for  the
benefit of family compacts.    The trick
is so amazingly thin that  it  will no
longer hold   water,   and   many  well-
meaning,   but   weak-minded,    people,
previously victims of  the   deception,
have  recently turned their backs upon
it.    The shocking part of the matter is
that, the great advocates of prohibition,
for the most part, drink liquor in secret,
men ard women.    The fact  that it is
forbidden seems to evoke all the latent
contradiction of mother Eve, and *>eople
who would only take liquor in moderation, or not  at  all, become victims to
intemperance.    We absolutely knew of
a very fair lecturer on temperance and
prohibition, who used to paint the horrors of drunkenness in the most glaring,
and  frequently indelicate,  colors, and
who used to take up a bottle of brandy
every night to bed with him and had it
finished by morning, when he prepared
for the next evening's lecture.    It has
always been the hebit to associate intemperance or drunkenness with crime.
This is a gross mistake.    Men who had
planned great crimes have been known
to take stimulant before proceeding to
their commission, but this is very rare.
The true criminal is exceedingly temperate, and as  a rule, evil-minded men
are always very sober.    The victim of
liquor   is the  good-natured, generous-
hearted  man, who loves to be social
and  see only the best side of  human
nature.     Of course, these tendencies
are  frequently carried to excess,   but
such cases are decidedly the exception,
and not by any means so numerous as
the canting hypocrites who pretend to
to look upon these foolish good-natured
people with  horror, whilst indulging in
secret excesses revolting to humanity.
The fact is, that prohibition is and will
continue to be while it lasts, a delusion
and  a snare.    Its  introduction is the
precursor of great evils whilst it rather
increases than diminishes, the consumption of liquor.     Anything like restraint
on  any human  indulgence is   certain
to be resisted and impels to greater extravagance, the man who, without such
restraint,   would   be   very   temperate.
The truth is the authorities are very lax
in  their duty ; we do not want restriction to the selling and consumption of
liquor, but protection.    Even the lowest
rate for license  is  very high and the
liquor seller is compelled to secure such
a profit as will leave him a margin for a
livelihood,  hence, he cannot afford to
sell the best liquor.     Wc should advocate a mcSderate license, but the strict
administration of the law in relation to
the sale of liquor and quality  of the
drink sold.    We should make a third
offence not only punishable by the cancellation of tJ|b license, but we should
exclude the Buse from the list ot places
to which licenses would be granted ; so
that   the  property owner would assist
the authorities in  preserving order and
preventing the sale of spurious liquors.
This is not what these ultra-temiierancc
people want ; they want prohibition as
a stalking horse.

-Mr. John   Robson has distinguiaheil himself an n  minister of thit Province.    We
hrtvu many instances of his peculiaritiei, of
which more anon.    But hit treatment of hia
constituents deserves particular   attention
rrutl we purpose at this moment to give two
or three  instances.    When he assumed the
duticB of the Chief Commissioner of Lands
and  Works, while  canvassing the District
for himself and two other* whom be counted
pn as henchmen, he told the electors   tbat
920,000 was apportioned  for the   District,
but thtt, the money would be given in exact
ratio to the support accorded to himself *nd
his irieiuls.    But he went further.    He told
the electors,  also, that a sum of $102,000
ttill remained of the dock money, to be dis-
Imr-ii'il for the benefit of the Mainland. Now,
this latter fact should be borne in mind, be
cause, although the Government may make
use nf this mm, to long as ita outlay is not
called for hy any pressing necessity,   tliey
havu no right to retain  it when the vital
interests nf those who are entitled to it, are
jeopardised  hy its living  withheld.    Every
one knowi how important the roads are to;
tin- dinners ; they afford them the only pos-,
-.ilile means of getting their produce to market and their tuppliei to their families, setting aside the nicisitaryintercommunication
which  is always going on from one settlement tn Knottier,   and the frequent liiitinets
vititi. of thu  farmeit to thit city.    At thit
moment tho greet publio artery—the Vale
rood, is impassible,  and the crow rotdi between  the tettlements and the river, are
i.-aily to ; but when thia  model Provincial
Secretary, or any of hit colleague!, are re-
niiuileil  nf their indehtednou,  or thu •'-solute necessity fur tome repair! to the roads,
they *t once reply th.t they b*va no fund* !
That is, that  they have mule ute of money

and did not elect the men that Mr. John

monitrnu*.    It is simply telling the people
that they are slave*, and if they do not pay
their taxes and do a* Mr. John Ronton tells
them, they are unfit to live and deserve no

we will have  aome  future opportunity of
particularly describing, managed to secure bit
election ; but it may be information to him,
when we tell him, that had the election been

With the greatest concentration of value*
in the world, the tire* of. London, England,
in 1885 were extiuguiihed with an average
loaa of 8415- total fires 2,538, total loss 61,-
053,400. London contains spproximately
$C,500,000,000 of combustible values, insurance thereupon about 64,000,000,000 -fire

Arrangements have Isren mode for building forty or fifty miles of the Hudson Bay
Railroad immediately, partially by lm_!
Government aid, and partially by ouuide
capital. The latter has furnished funds tn
rail thia distance, and tbe rails liave already
beeu shipped. If this work is done assur
auces have been received that capital will lie
forthcoming for completing the balance of
the Line. Winnipeg will probably be asked
to give a bonus, and much is said to depend
upon the local aid received. I'he contract
has been given out for 290 miles nf the road,
and the amount to be built tbis season will
form a portion of the work. An effort will
be made to buy from the Canadian Pacific
either the Selkirk or Stonewall branches,
and negotiation! to thit end are now in progress, and it ia expected will lie settled one
way or the other thia week.
The iii in word* iu which Premier Tisza,
speaking in the name not only of the Hungarian Cabinet, but of the Austrian Foreign
Minister, Kalnuky, sanctioned the resolve
of the Magyars nut to permit the stifling of
Bulgaria by Russia, hit hid an invigorating
effect oo the people *f the principality.
Every important exaction included in the
arrogant ultimatum delivered by Kan!
bars hat been repelled by the provisional
Government, and the envoy hiintelf hi*
been treated with merited contumely, having had hia plaoardt torn duwn before hii
eyei, and having been bitted into tileoce
when he etstyed tu bully a public meeting.
Kaulban had been bidden to inform his
master that the Bulgarian Regents will comply with none of hit demands that in any
wise run counter to their nitional Constitution, aud of tuch contradiction they claim
the sole right to judge. They will let justice
take ita course against the accomplices in
the abduction conspiracy, and they will nnt
postpone the meeting of the Constitutional
Assembly fur which the elections will presently take plaoe. Nor should we now lie
much surprised, in view of the confidence iti-
apiral by Magyar sympathy, ami of the
rightful indignation provoked by th* behavior of the Cxar and bis emissaries,
if the people's representatives, once convoked in the greater Sobranje, should reject
the conciliatory counsels of the Kegi-nt- and
re-elect Prince Alexander ruler of a free
Bulgaria. It is potiible, indued, thtt in the
intervening week* aome sporadic attempts
at insurrection may be brought about hy
Muscovite intrigue .nd money, but there is
proof that, a* a whole, the Ualgariau army
is fiercely anti-Russian, and, unless promptly tuppurted hy an advaucc uf the Czar's
army from Bessarabia, the plots of Raul-
barsatSiiphia and Tirnnva are likely to be
savagely atamped out.
A forward movement of the Itussian
troops, which for tome time have lieen
matted in Bestarabia, ia not, in view of recent changet in the political situation, by
any meant the easy thing it teemed a month
ago. The soldiers of the C/ar would first
have to croat the Danube, and they would
then have a long march before them through
the Iiobriidteha, which is Roumanian territory. A hint from Vienna, to King Charlet,
whose subjects were almost as much exasperated as the Bulgarians themselves by
Prince Alexander's abduction, would throw
in the Russian path a Roumanian force
ttrnng enough to delay the invaders until
the Auitriant and tho Turks could come up.
That an Anttrian army would he hurried to
the front ll uo lunger doubtful tinco Herr
Titza'i announcement that the Hapthurg
Government would not permit the (.'-ar to
occupy Bulgaria. That a like promptitude
would bu dttplayed by the Turkish soldiers
collected on the southern border of Eastern
Roumelia is also oertain, for the Pathat
now in power know well, whatever bribet
they mty of late have taken from Russia,
that it would cott them their lives tn be suspected by the Motletn population of tubiir-
nation by the Cztr.
A tingle item word from Hungary hat
sufficed to curb the Russian insolence, and
to force A leirudcr III. to make up hit mind
betimes whether to luck down or fight.

Wathiugton ii * city of convention*. So
conveniently and centrally located il it, so
delightful a piae* to sojourn, and of such *u
even temperature at all eeaaoa* of the y*ar,
that it ii rapidly taking the lead of all other

throughout the entire y*ar, tbat the Capital
it not favored with some *ort of conraation
—scientific, military, religious, temperance,

throughout the country, important or other
»ite, to make Waahingtoo their roudcrvout.
Their quettion of hiving a grand nitioual
tlritl bare aett *priug hat been diacuaaed for
aome time. It la propneed to bave th*
military ditplty in one of the open parki
near th* Withiugtou monumuut, and a
oumbar of prize* will be offered. It i* be-
lievad that the drill will attract too large a
body of eoldler* for convenience in mi 'try
cvolutiout; and so a careful selection w ill
be made, In order to include only the cream
of national guardimen of tb* country. Nona
bat well recognized and regularly or
gauiiMd compaaiet will l>e allowed to com
TU* haa liaan au laUieatra - weak is
Waanington. There have been two eon
•i-utiout, * religloa* and a scientific; *
regatta; and a grand itaombly of Royal
Arch Maaona. These latti r presented a
very impoaing anpearauc* a* thoy paraded
the *_r*eU in th*n bright uniform* ud were
reviaMd by the Preaident. They also attended, en matte, ono of Mr. Cleveland'•
public receptiont. One eutbuiisstic young
man ••olaiuted : "1 am so gltri tn In able
to shako haodi with you. You are th* firtt
1'reaident 1 ever helped to aleet," "Well
ynu are young yet," renpouded Mr. Cleveland, '-.ou will have plenty mora chance*."
But what his deservedly attracted the
moat attention during the weak, not only
on account of ita novelty, but because of the
really remarkable character of the exhibits,
hai been tha lair given by the  colored peo-
Chi of the diitrict, tn show the progress made
y their race in tht latt twenty yearn.
Everything admitted to the exhibition it
the work of negroet, aud.there i* much that
allow* not only intelligent innately of the
principle! of the trade involved, but also
refined akill and tasto in execution. Some
of the work eihibited by the Indie* woultl
beat eompariaoii with the best reault* attained In the decorative art aohool. Tbe
men are alio well represented in their •*-
hibite, their work displaying real inventive
gouiua aad mechanical tkill.
A number of changes have been mude in
the department* of late. The i -cully appointed public printer Mr.; Benedict, fonnd
■n e.aminiug the conditio- of his office, that
the sum of money appropriated by Congress
to pay expenses wn niuori lew than the
ncirt'tairy amount. H« ilocided to mike ox-
teiuivc raductiont iu the clerical force, and
375 employee havo been dismissed. The
work of the Oovernment printing office will
be facilitated by tbit change, aa it ia an open
secret that in many cane* three men were
employed to do what would hardly be con
sidered a good day'* work for one, and there
wa* abaoltttely no space for uffitctive labor in
the over crowded room*
A large part of the Preaident'* tim* -inc.
bi* return baa bean davoted to inquiring
nbout Federal office-holder's who have violated the order that he issued jutt before he
left, to the effect that thoy should nut engage iu political conventions. He spoke in
very decided terms on the subject, and haa
ordered a thorough Investigation to be made
of each case where an officer it charged with
having taken any part in recent convention*. He aaid that the order wn not given
for mere effect, and he intended to have it
respected; and whan it waa fully prov an
that it had been violated, the guilty par-
tans would be summarily dismissed from the
service. Mr. Cleveland lias also requested
the heada of the various department* to
furnish him a list of the name* of thn person* who ware charged with having disobeyed the order. He believe* that a
majority of the supposed malefactor* are in
the pott office and internal revenuo service.
The moat palpable violation of the order,
however, hu been on the part of the Federal
office-holder* in New Oilcan* to bring about
the rein,mi nation of Congressman King.
Wben speaking of the subject, Mr. Cleveland is aaid to have expressed himaelf with
great indignation.
On the sauil lot recently Dr. O'llonucll
begin, at tbe final Sunday bour, to exercise
bit lunga for druwin- ■ crowd. By 3 o'clock
he had ahouted hiui'i-n blue in tha face.
Meanwhile Denia Kearney appeared oa
the aceae, atandiitg upon • WRgon. There
wat a great rosh'across the sand lot, and
O'Donoell turned a variety of colon in
hia rage. Barely fifty persons were left
around his own stand. Dennit had not been
speaking ten minute*, however, before tha
O'Donnell men concerted a movement
whicli they hoped wool,! result lo a
stampede. They were not ' mistaken.
Denii and thu wagon were borne down Park
avenue toward Market street. The man
with the wagon would nut' return. But for
the steady stand made by a few stalwart
friends of Kearney it it probable that be
would have been pulled to the gro nil, and
that aomethiug serious might hav* happened. Two tall policemen then loomed up on
the City Hal.', ground*, and a quarter of an
hour later Dcuis strolled back, presumably
to sliii'v the awe-inspired apnotatnra that he
wu not afraid.
The rest ef tbo proceeding* wer* flat,
sttle and unprofitable.
Ther* are men In our fraternity, who never
come to Lodge,
And   whole   claims we can't reiilt, for we
have them on the lief ;
But if their name* wen stricken oil', u far nt
we can judge,
They never   would be mitswd, they   never
would be missed.
They cannot give the password, and do nnt
know the sign.
And of the Order's   good or  ill  thay never
read a line;
Tbey growl about  ameaatneute  aod   they
grudge to pay their dues,
And every call fnr charity they  stubbornly
If all the Brothers were like these the Lodge

And they never wonld bemiwed, they never
would be mimed.

Lord Randolph Churchill, speaking ut
Dartfprd, said the House of Common* was
the slave of the caprico of tho Radicals nnd
'Parn.llitos and it was imperative to provide
a aiuiplo and effective means of clnting debate!. If Ireland followed the ndeicc of
agitators tuch action would lead to further
repression, but Irish commerce had begun to
improve, aud with the present good harvest
the people of Ireland might anticipate
brighter timet. With regard to the affairs
in Bulgaria, ho said it was impossible to
foreshadow the outcome. England, he said,
onght to support Austria in her difficulty.
Li rd Churchill spoke in pruiso of the loyal
support which the Government had received from Loi'dHiirringt'iii, Mr. Chamber-
lain and all the Liberal Union-sts. He said
that foreign affiir, would be subordinated to
tbe uuinn aud the Unionist party. The
Government recognized the sacrifices which
the Unionists had mule and tbe odium which
they hud incurred among their forirer
friends, therefore it was the duty or the
Government to prove tothe people uf England that the Uuioui-ts were right iu lhe
courto they took. Tlie Government would
givo the greatest attention to legislation nf-
fecting England and Scitlnnd, which hid
lately heen neglected for Ireland, It would
introduce measures to ennhle farm lahorers
to obtain free bold allotments and would
also deal with the question nt tithes and
railways, monaures for cheapening the oust
of the transfer of land, nnd a popular form
of local government would also be presented.
With regard to tbe land question in Irelsnd,
they would have to change fmrn dnuhlc tu
single ownership in order to have peace.
There wai alto the question nf education to
be considered. On all of these quettiont the
prctirecM were fair, although tbo work
