PROF. WAYLAND'S LECTURE.
ru.ADvioxr., dibiuiim, and tih:
iioi'si: or (Anions.
A fair-sized audience, including
the King and 11 largo pioportion of
the intellect and beauty of tho city,
assembled in Y. M. C. A. Hall last
evening to hear Prof. "Waylnnd lec
ture upon the above subject. Tho
lecturer was appropriately intro
duced by Dr. Hydo, on behalf of
tho Woman's Christian Tompeiatire
Union. Prof. Wnylnud, In begin
ning uli.it he explained vmt only
going to bo u talk, cxptessed his
pleasuie 111 having the opportunity
of lequiting in some mcastuc the
universal kindness with which ho
had been treated by dwellers on
these Islands, beginning with His
Majesty the King." His subject had
been announced, ho said, "kangaroo
fashion" tho most important pint
at the end, and he would reverse the
order, speaking first of the House of
Commons. Thai body was the
parent and pattern of all modern
deliberative- assemblies, holding
stun erne conliol over the most
powerful, wealthy, mid intelligent
nation of the cut Hi. As one of
her own gteat men had said, tho
House of Commons was the crown
of England. The royal assent had
not been withheld from any of its
incisures since 1807, in the reign of
Queen Anno. England's constitu
tion was tho House of Commons,
for there was absolutely no limit to
the power of English legislation. In
fact, the constitution of England was
whatever the House or Commons hail
made it. It was dilllcult to sec how
it was possible for a grave constitu
tional question to arise in England,
for once a matter has become a
statute it has passed beyond the
range of constitutional controversy.
The lecturer then gave a description
of the three ways in which a visitor
might gain admission to the proceed
ings of the House of Commons. As
the space for visitors was very
limited, and the Speaker's Gallery
was set apait for peers, noblemen,
and their fiicnds, a good deal of
formality was necessary to be ob
served in getting the entry. A descrip
tion of the House and itB proceedings
followed. The Speaker, who pre
sided over it, vra3 elected from
session to session, until the time
came for him to be elevated to the
House of 'Lords. He was chosen
for his knowledge of parliamentary
practice, without regard to party.
There were 080 members of the
House, but only a very few of them
were ordinarily to be found in their
seats. Over the Speaker's head
was the reporter's gallery, and the
lecturer characterized its occupants'
work as a marvel of fulness and
accuracy. Members wore their hats
in the House, except when rising to
go out or to speak. In the order of
proceedings, the receiving of peti
tions came first. Although the
right of petition was still honored,
the petitions received scant respect.
A member roc with one in his hand
and, after mumbling over its con
tents, sent it to the Clerk, who de
posited it in a bag hanging by his
table. Next came questions put by
members to the Government, and, as
Parliament was omnipresent as well
as omnipotent, these took a wide
range, piercing even into local mat
ters that in other countries arc
controlled by municipal bodies.
One question the lecturer heard
asked was whether it was true that
in the parish of lilank a magistrate
had sentenced a boy to two months'
imprisonment for stealing two geese.
Notice had to be given of questions,
and if the head of the department
under which any of them arose was
a member of the House of Lords,
there was an under secretary in the
Commons to represent him. Ans
wers to some questions were with
held or postponed for state reasons.
Often the ablest debating of public
questions took place under this in
terrogation of the Ministry. Young
members were always treated with
great respect when making their
maiden speeches in the House, being
cheered along their way even when
making but indifferent efforts.
"Hear, hear," was the only sound
ordinarily heard in tho House, but
its utterance was reduced to such a
fine art thai it expressed, according
to its intonation, approval or dis
sent, admiration or contempt, mirth
or indignation. As to the manner
of speakers in the House the lec
turer contradicted the somewhat
prevalent notion that the style of
oratory was poor, broken by much
hesitation, hemming and hawing.
He had never heard better speaking,
more eloquent and unconstrained
utterance, in his life than during
his visit there. No man living ex
ceeds Mr. Gladstone for his alllu
ence of oratorical gifts. Some of
the members were, however, rather
ungraceful in action when on their
feet. During that statesman's life
time, the first question of a visitor
always was, "Where's Disraeli?"
He was easily recognized from por
traits and cartoons before being
pointed out. His vaiious appella
tives, "The Sphinx," "The Solitary
Gladiator," and so on, were borne
out by his appearance in Parliament.
He would sit for hours with his
hands folded in his lap, almost, as
might ho supposed, asleep. Yet ho
was always alert, and taking in every
word uttered in tho House, as
proven by his readiness with re
paitee or a reply at length upon
opportunity. He never left his seat
and seldom talked with other mem
bers. His rival Gladstone pre
sented a btrong contrast in those
respects. Ho was always ready
with explanations, he could not keep
still for many minutes, and was pre
pared at any moment to speak for
three or four hours in a stream of
noble laiigungo. l'rof. Wnyland
dosotibed the functions of tho' Par
liamentary "whips," who weicnot
recognized in law, but whose bid
ding was law to the members of
their respective parlies. Sonic hast
ened from the ends of the earth, ,
travelling day mid night, to bo in
the House at nu Important division
at the behest of the "whip." Divi
sions of the House wore sometimes j
demanded upon frivolous pretexts
for purposes of obstruction. The
Irish party, whom tho lecturer hit
hard several times in his talk, were
particularly proiic to this device.
Theic was no calling of a roll, witlt
responses of "ayes" and "nays,"
in a division, but it hs "Aye's to'
the right, noes to the lefl," and the
members tiled out of ,the chamber
and back in two streams, being re
corded at three different points, so
that a miscount was scarcely possi
ble. When a vote was about to be
taken, the Speaker cried out,
" Strangers withdraw," but the
strangers never budge, because the
order is known to be now only a
mere formality. There were three
ways of turning out the Government,
defeating it in 11 vote upon important
questions, by n vole of censure, or
by a vote of want of confidence.
Hills may, however, be presented by
members of the Cabinet without the
latter as a whole taking the respon
sibility of them, and in such a case
the rejection of the measure did not
involve the overthrow of the Govern
ment. Great care was taken in
England to avoid hasty legislation,
that evil from which the lecturer
said his own country suffered. A
matter for legislation taken in hand
by the Ministry was first discussed
in Cabinet Council, and if a bill was
resolved upon a draft of it was out
lined and sent to the parlia
mentary counsel, who prepared
a bill for Parliament: The present
counsel had held the olllcc for a
great many years, so that his experi
ence is very valuable. Then tho
measure had to pass two readings,
committee of the whole and a thud
reading, after which it was reviewed
by the House of Lords, and returned
to Hie Commons with or without
amendment, for final assent. Royal
assent to measures is given in the
Lords' chamber, whither the Com
moners arc summoned to hear it,
and thirty or forty of them troop in
and stand in an cnclosene set apart
for them during the brief ceremony.
Since the dcatli of tho Prince Con
soi t, Queen Victoria has not come
down to give her assent in person,
but sends a commissioner. Assent
is given by Hie words, in old Norman-French,
signifying, "The Queen
wills it," as the Clerk reads the
titles of the bills. The lecture
closed with a sketch of the respec
tive careers of Disraeli and Glad
stone. It told how the former, born
in 1825, entered Parliament at the
age of 32, after he had, ten or twelve
years earlier, become well-known as
the author of Vivian Grey. Starting
as a Liberal of a radical profession
sedition being historic according to
his own statement in a letter he
was in reality an ambitious adven
turer in politics, watching every
opportunity for self-aggrandizement.
Soon he gravitated to the following
of tho Tory loader, Sir Robert Peel.
That statesman's determination to
repeal the corn laws, whoso burdens
lie had for some time been reducing,
gave young Disraeli the grand oppor
tunity of his life. Sir Hobert' s
enunciation of his policy had left the
Tories dazed and speechless over
his abandonment of party traditions.
Disraeli saw his time had come, and
.springing to his feet poured outa tor
rent of abuse upon his old leader for
deserting his lifelong supporters. He
declared that, although diminished,
the Tory party was not destroyed.
From that hour ho was the idolized
leader and champion of the Conser
vatives of England. His followers'
loyalty even survived his coup d'
etut of 1807, when he gave the
nation a more sweeping franchise
measure than even his most radical
opponents would hare ventured at
that time to present. The culmina
tion of his wonderful career was
reached in the summer of 1878, on
his entry into London after taking
part in the Berlin Conference, whore
he had crossed swords" with Bismarck"
and won triumphs flattering to his
country. His brief foreign policy,
however, only resulted in a few use
less wars with small nations and a
legacy of troubles for his successor.
Parliament was dissolved in 1880,
and the elections lcsullcd in Glad
stone being returned to power with
a majority of 120 at! his back.
Soon after Disraeli's place in tho
House of Lords, which he had
occupied as Lord Heaconslleld, was
vacant forever. Mr. Gladstone iya's'
born in 180'J, entered Parliament in
18!)2, and delivered his first speech
therein 1817, in favor of a bill for
removing Jewish disabilities. Not
until 1852 did he display to the iull
his marvellous powers of oratory, in
a speech against his antagonist Dis
raeli. That debato resulted 111 the
defeat of the Tory Ministry. For
nearly 17 years he has held the posi
tion of cither Chancellor of the Ex
chequer or Premier. Prof. Wayland
gave a list of Gladstone' principal
reform measures, and concluded with
it warm ciiloclum of his character
it ml of hits services to liis nation.

amounted to 8(!f). and arc
