An enormous crowd gathered
around Parliainont House, London,
on the 13th iust., many hours boforo
tho sitting opened. At noon the in
ner lobby was packed with members
and tho approaches were crowded.
When tho doors woro opened there
was a disorderly rush for seats, tho
members shouting and struggling
like a mob of excursionists. The vet
eran member, Caleb Wright, wa
borno down and trampled on, and
was rescued with difficulty.
Gladstone entered tho" House at
3:30 p.m. and was greeted with pro
longed and enthusiastic cheers by
tho Liberal and Irish mombors. A
quarter of an hour later, when he
rose to introduce tho homo rule bill,
thoro was another demonstration,
lasting several minutes. Gladstone
spoke in a clear, strong and resonant
His speech opened by recalling
tho homo rule policy of 1880. They
had then, coma to where two road's
parted, ono leading to autonomy for
Ireland and tho other to coercion.
All tho schemes of their opponents
to give local self-government in tho
provinces, etc., had vanished into
thin air. Tho roads woro slill there,
to autonomy or to coercion.
Gladstono went back to the time
of tho Union, and said: "It was then
prophesied confidently that Irish
men would take their places in the
Cabinet of the United Kingdom.
But it has boon my honored destiny
to sit in Cabinets with no less than
sixty or seventy statesmen of whom
only ono, tho Duko of Wellington,
was an Irishman, while Cast loreagh
was tho only other Irishman who
had sat in tho Cabinet since the
union. Pitt promised coital laws
when tho union was formed, but the
broken promises made to Ireland aro
unhappily written in indelible char
actors in tho history of the country.
"Coining down to 1832, when the
resurrection of tho people began,
and thence down to 1S80, Ireland
could present only a small minority
in favor of restoring to her .some
thing in tho nature of constitutional
rights and practical self-government.
It is to mo astonishing that so little
woight is attached by many to tho
fact that boforo 18S(J lief ore 1885,
indeed tho Irish wishes of self
govornmont woro ropre&ented only
by a small minority. Since 1880,
when tho wide extension of tho fran
chise was protected by tho secret
ballot, Ireland's position has boon
improved in Parliament. In 188(5
thoro woro ejghty-fivo Nationalists,
or moro than live-eighths. (Cheers.)
They havo boon reduced from
eighty-five to eighty under circum
stances somowhat peculiar (Hoar!
Hoarl), and 1 must frankly own, to
mysolf, among others, for reasons
totalby and absolutely unintelligi
ble. (.Iouti cheors.)
The venerable statesman wont on
in a facetious vein, to show just what
tho strength of Ireland's homo rule
sentiment was. "Lot us look at tho
state of tho case as it now stands.
Thoro aro but eighty out of 100;
that is to sa3', tho wishes of Ireland
for Irish self-government in Irish
matters aro represented only by four
fifths. Laughter. Tho honorable
gentlemen seem to have no respect
for such a majority as that. Do they
recollect, sir, that never in England
has thoro boon such a majority?
I Cheors. No Parliament of tho
last fifty years has come within a
measurable distance of it. If thoro
bo anything in tho great principlo of
solf-govornnioiit it never can work
oxcopt through tho machinery and
by tho laws of representation. At
any rato, tho voico of tho Irish peo
ple, tho persistency of tho Irish peo
ple in delivering that voice, and
tho peaceful constitutional circum
stances tinder which it has boon do-
liverod Ministerial cheors and oppo
sition laughter constitute a great
fact in history."
Ho would refrain from declaring
that England would find herself ex
hausted aud her work made imprac
ticable by resislanco to Irish de
mands, lie could well eoneoio
England maintaining, if so minded,
resisianco 10 jriHii uomatuis, out
England's conversion to homo rule
had boon rapid. Jn 188(5 England's
majority advoiso to homo rule was
211. It had now declined to 71. In
tho face of such facts who would
guarantee tho porinaneuco of tho
opposition of the remainder?
Mr. Gladstone thou asked tho pa
tient iuriulgoiu'o of I lie House
while ghing an account of the bill.
Ho could not iindertako to supply
more iiinu a laimioi its contents.
If ho did it would probably bewilder
his hearers. The bill iUolf would
soon bo in their hands.
it should bo remembered, ho Mtiri,
(hat tho bill of 188(5 laid down five
propositions as cardinal principles,
to which lie endeavored to closely
adhere. Change thorn was, but not
a trenchant change from the priuci
pies of 18811. Tho object or tho bill
lomaiiied, as in 1880, to establish a
h'ginlatiwt body in Dublin for tho
conduct both of legislation and atl-
ministration in Irish, na Uibtluot from

imperial affairs. Cheers. Tho con- 2JB
unions, which nuru men uoservou t
nothing inconsistent with imporial
unity. Tho did not wish to impair
it; "tho3 wished to strongthou it.
First, then, imporial unity is ob
served and tho equality of all is ob
served; secondly, tho equality of all
tho kingdom would bo borno in
mind ; thirdly, there would bo an equi
table repartition of imperial charges;
fourthly, any and ovory practicable
provision for tho protection of
minorities would bo included. Tho
plan proposb'd ought to bo such as
to present tho necessary character
istics of real aud continued settle
ment. Ho would not attempt to measure
tho numerical strength of tho min
ority. It was said that a minority
in the north of Ireland was arrayed
in unalterable opposition to homo
rule. Unhappily an attempt to di
vide tho Irish people at tho tinio of
Union, through tho medium chiefly
of Orange lodges, had boon partly
successful. But ho pointed out that
(ho Protestants of Ireland, during
tho period of the independent Irish
Pailiamont, woro themselves not
only willing but zealous and enthu
siastic supporters of Irish national
ity, inasmuch as their political lio
was at that period moro highly de
veloped than that of tho Roman
Catholic population in tho political
movement which distinguished that
period. (Cheors.) This is writton
broadcast upon tho history of tho
time. A genuine national sentiment,
in tho sense of national unit, at one
time existed among tho north of Ire
land Protestants. Wo who havo
seen them altorod since, not through
their own fault, aro not ready to bo
persuaded that they will not altor
back again to tho sentiments of their
own ancestors (Cheers), standing
with their own blood and their own
people in one noble and glorious
Express mention was mado in tho
bill of tho supremacy of the Im
porial Parliament. Thoy had chosen
a preamble as tho worthier and hot
ter method, for if done b- a clause
it would bo too much in the charac
ter of a mere enactment.
The bill constitutes an Irish Legis
latuie, composed of a legislative
council aim a legislative assembly.
Its scope of legislation was restrict
ed to local concerns. "Tho subjects
of peace and war, tho public defense,
tioatios aud foreign relations, digni
ties, titles and the law of treason do
not belong to tho Irish Legislature.
The law of alienage does not bolong
to it, nor anything that bolongs to
external trade, coinage and other
subsidiary subjects. Tho othor in
capacities imposed are similar to
tho.-o contained in the bill of 18SG.
These provide for tho soeuritj- of
religious freedom, tho safeguard of
education and tho security of per
sonal freedom. Then wo retain tho
vicoroyalty of Ireland, but divost it
of tho party character it has hereto
fore borno by making tho appoint
ment run six years, subject to tho
revoking power of tho crown, and'
the post is freed from all religious
Tho number of members of tho
Legislative Assembly would bo 103
and tho form bo five years. As to
tho Legislative Council, Gladstone
said thoy had come to tho conclusion
that a nominated council would bo
a weak council and, therefore, thoy
proposed an elective council. Tho
number would bo 18 with an oight
years tonn of ollico. To prevent a
deadlock it is providod that where
a bill is adopted ly tho assembly
moro than onco and where thoro is
an interval of two years botwoon tho
two adoptions, or a dissolution of
Parliament, thnn, upon its second
adoption, tho two assemblies may bo
required to moot and tho fato of the
bill is to bo decided in joint assem
All appeals against Irish laws shall
lie to the Privy Council alone and
not to tho Privy Council and the
Lords. Two Exchequer Judges shall
bo appointed under tho authority of
tho Crown? mainly for financial busi
ness. For six 3-oars all judges shall
bo appointed tis now. Their salaries
will bo ffxod in Ireland, so that thoir
appointments will bo under joint
control. Thoy proposed a gradual
reduction and ultimate dissolution
or disappearance of the constabulary
force. It would bo replaced by a
force owing its existence to tho Irish
authorities in local areas.
Mr. Gladstono then came to tho
much discufcsod question of tho re
tention of Irish members in tho Im
perial Parliament. Thoy were to bo
retained. While not admitting that
the parliamentary supremacy do
ponded on the retention of tho Irish
members, ho quite admitted that the
retention of those mombors had
great practical importance because
it exhibited supremacy in a manner
intelligible to tho people. Besides,
it gave Ireland a full voico in all
parliamentary matters. Ho know of
no argument against the retention
of the Irish uiomburs, but ho did
not think it was in tho wit of man
to .suggest n plan for thoir retention
which would not bo open to some
Minotin practical difficulties. Ac
cording to tho chaugo in the pro
poitiou of population between Ire
land and Great Britain, tho number
of Irish mombois in Parliament
should bo reduced fioiu 103 to 80.
.Mr, Gladstone argued that tho Irish
members should have the power of
voting on all questions, otherwise a
great parliamentary tradition would
bo broken, liut as t ho whole subject
was full of thorns and brninblos, and
