Tendon, I>ec. 2.?Tho Cabinet Council yester
rlay discussed tho question whether tho closure
should be used unrelentingly to hasten the
parlrh Councils bill through tho H..uso nf Com?
mons. Tho majority decided that tin* beat
pollcy arouM be t" "riva tho Opposition still
mt.rc license in its obstructive tactics.
The Unionists affect t.. betteve that th.- ?Minis?
ter.'- ara d-Ksoui-gcd by thc slow progress of
parliamentary business in view of tho noar ap?
proach of the end of tho sitting. Tb** Minis?
ters, tm tho other hand, dellaro their readi?
ness to keep the members in session until the
last of January, and then prorogue Parliament
formally, only to resume work after a few
days. Part "f the strength of tho Government's
plan lies In tho faot that the Unionists find in?
creasing trouble in keeping their members to?
gether. Th- C...vernment majorities aro increas?
ing s-> noticeably in all ordinary divisions that
eve! the Liberal-Unionists under Joseph Cham?
berlain aro disheartened. Tho prospect ls.
therefore, that tho Opposition. WOITI away by Hs
own policy, will allow tho C.overnmont lo end
the session without applying tb.- closure. Prob?
ably tho .session will be cloped before christmas.
Austen Chamberlain. Liberal-Unionist Whip,
and therefore the possessor of much valuable in?
formation as to party plans, has boen telling
bis party's election agents that the general
election will bo held about next May. Acting
upon this information, the Liberal-Unionist or?
ganizers have pone to wodi with a will to pre?
pare for tho appeal to the country. Inquiries
mail" In Ministerial quarters and at the moms
of the Liberal Federation's Executive Commit?
tee, however, positively contradict Mr. Cham?
berlain's predietions. Tho response in every
case was that, as the: "one-man, one-vote" reg
istration bill and other measures on th.- Lib?
eral programme must bo carri*rd through the
C.mmons before the dissolution, it would be im?
possible to go before tho country until 1 ?.'..:,.
The Unionist newspapers say. nevertheless,
that the quietness of tho Irish members is duo
to Mr. Gladstone's pledge that he will n.>t defer |
the general election beyond the s-.iring "f W.i4 The
Irish leaders deny that this pledge has been Riven.
Upsides the Evicted Tenants measure, what
really keeps tho Irish in closj touch with the
Government is their -crowing confidence that
even after Mr. Gladstone's death tho Liberals
will not depart from the Home Rule lino of
policy. The loss of the great Liberal leader
would now fail to disturb the Liberal-Na?
tionalist coalition, because ho has committed so
many of his English followers to Home Eulo.
Mr. Campbell-Pannerman, Secre'ary of War;
John Morley. Chief Secretary for Ireland, and
Herbert Asquith, Homo Secretary, are all
practical forces enlisted publicly and privately
In the Irish cause. All are over ready to show
their desire to accelerate the realization of
Homo Rule. Mr. Asquith- curt manner of
answering Irish questions lins frequently caused
offence to Irish members, and has led to op* n
threats that the Iilsh would combine anti make
his post too hot for him. Hut in private con?
versation with the Irish leaders Mr. Asquith bas
made good hts public shortcomings, and has re?
stored his friendly relations with the Na- (
tlonallsts.
Joseph Chamberlain's acceptance of the presi?
dency of the local Constitutional Club marks
decisively his entrance Into the Conservative
ri nks. AA'hatever pretensions to Liberalism h*
may make hereafter will be regarded as hardly
genuine.
The Government Inquiry into the Dublin
dynamite plot is conducted under the Explosives
get, which enables tb'" e..un. to be held behind I
Closed doora. Tb- police in Dublin have un?
usual privileges in makin-*: domiciliary visits
and arresting uspidoua charactera. The in?
quiry made under the act Into the outrage in
Exchange Court, Dublin, last Christmas re?
sulted in nothing, and the present Inqulr) bids
fair to be as futile.
Stories that London is In an Anarchist scare
and that the Ministers now hav.- special police
protection hui.* I>een started, but ihey a\[ uta
false. There is no fear her** of a dynamite cam?
paign, and the members of th.* Cabinet go about
as freely and fearlessly as ever.
Mr. Gladstone ha-i told th" H.msr ol' Commons
that if Russia obtains free passage for her flee!
through the Dardanelles other Powers must
have the same privilege, but his declaration has
not removed the prevailing suspicion that Rus?
sia alms to secure and keep this privilege for
hers-if alone. "The Speaker" published a dis
patch from Constantinople to the effect that
Russia and Eran.-e are acting in concert t . ob?
tain this privilege, as well as some others, and
have made the Turkish author!tlea believe ib.it
the other Powers, Including England, will not
resist the Franco-Russian demand otherwise
than by diploma!!.? pressure. Jt ls un accepted
opinion nt the Golden Horn, says the rorrespon
dimt. that Turkey, uni.-ss backed by the armed
f .1 *- of the Powers, must open the Straits to '
Russia alone, ani thus mik.- th*- dual alliance
Um Distress cf Constantinople nnd nil but the
mistress >.f the Medlterranaen. "The Speak- I
er's" ."ommoni upon the dispatch is:
"The fie- passage of al) Beeta through the J
Dardanelles must be secured. The end >f Rus?
sia's supremacy upon the Black Sea would b>* a
b.on to Bulgaria and Rumania, and would
make the Danube a real international hlgh
sray."
The Admiralty will expedite work on all the
warships bow l*i th** dockyards. The construc?
tion of the necessary inachin'-ry ab-.i will be
pur-hf.1 toward completion. "The Army ami
Navy Ossette" complains of the delay in be?
ginning the Majestic and Mrn.niflei.nt, the lar
gesl l-attleshlps ever designed. English navy
officials deny ihat there bas been any delay.
lt ls certain that tbe Admiralty is moving in
many directions almost as quickly as if ii were
war time. Bestdea th.* two bani.-ships ordered
from the Government yards, ihe estimates < all
for two from prival.* builders. Twelve vessels
of the torpedo-catcher clsss, with ? speed of
twenty-seven knots, are building on the Thai tes;
five on the Clyde and live on the Tyic . sThlrty
si\ more vessels of these classes are propoa* 1
Th** new cruiser Powerful, designed lo l>.- the
swiftest and strongest cruiser afloat, is also
under contract. It will be the flrsl of six
sister Cruisers The Government clearly rely
upon Parliament's readily spproving sn enor?
mous Increase of tho estimates nev spring.
The MWSpapei-l have allowed th<* periodical
Beare as to langland's naval weakness to abate
somewhat, but still print much mutter on the
subject. The most notable of recent contribu
lions to Ute discussion ls an interview willi Slr
Charles Dilke, who holds that England's Nagy
must be made strong enough to defeat and
shut in all possible enemies at s.a. Ile says
that the French build better warships and bel?
ter -runs than do the Knglish, have an unlimited
Supply of men to draw Ott, aird possess In Toulon

In "The National Review" Lord George Hamil?

upon the multiplicity of duties devolving upon
tho English Navy, and demands practically the
same naval strength as does Slr Charles.

Rorlln, Dee. 2.?In contrast with yesterday's
exciting debate on th- motion for '.he return of
tho Jesuits, the proceedings In the Reichstag to?
day we;., rather quiet. Only minor measures
were illscussed. Th.- House was almost empty
np to il,,, ti,,.. ,,- adjournment. Interest in the
mixed voting on the motion foe the return of
th- Jesuits is still iillve. An anap-sls shows
that the majority vote consisted of ninety-five
Centrists, almost the entire party; seventeen
Poles, six Alsatians, twenty-nine Bodalla*-,
eight s..uth German Democrat?, three mem?
bers ,,f tb.- Bavarian deputation, two Radi?
cal Unionists ten members of the Radical
People*! porty, Prince eon Hohenl* he, Conserv?
ative; Htrschel, Anti*_emlte, and Johansen.
Dane. The minority cannot be grouped so
Statistically, being drawn from the Fro* Con?
servatives, the National Liberals, the Conserva?
tives of whom thirty left the house when the
voting began, and tho Anti-Semites Werner
and Blndewalt, Anti-Semites, declined to vote
when th.ir names were called. Among promi?
nent mt mi.ers voting with the min,iiiiy were
Eugen Richter, Heinrich Rickert and Count
Herbert Bismarck.

tho jesuits cannot i..- describe l ts one on strictly

revocation "f the law- of expulsion, even after the
abatement ..f ile* Kulturkampf, prevented the

When ihe proposal was hist before the Reichs?
tag, two years ag.., Chancellor von Caprivl un?
mistakably declared against the Centre, mo?
tion. Yesterday th.* Government held entirely
aloof from th*- debate. Among tin- Government's
oid supporters, th.* National Liberals almost to
a man. voted against th.- motion, following their
traditions
Th.* sum of tho position ls this: That tho
Reichstag, having free play, shows chsnged
convictions, and that the Government, having
still to negotiate f..r majorities on th.- com?
mercial treaties anti financial refonns, may
lind it reasonable no longer to * ppoae the repeal
..f the law* of expulsion in negotiating for
majorities, and also in dealing wiih lha Vati?

yesterday- vote a powerful advantage, it
rests with tho Governmenl whether th.* vote

to far as th*- Commission is concerned, yesterday
by Mr. Howers In the following letter to General

"Deer Slr; In answer to your note of November
tl to the Rapid Transit Commissioners I can only
repeat lo you in writing what 1 stated orally at

"Th.* Rapt I Transit Commissioners have no

that you do so as an earnest of good faith and re?
