London. DM 9.?The anxieties of the Govern?
ment are urid >ubtelly increasing. The monthly
returns of the Hoard of Trad, strengthen ihe
rrevailln*; fears .af a large Nail..nnl deflcll at the
and nt the financial year. If the current report I
In offl-lal quarters are true, the deficit is ti lie
met, not out of the pockets ot that sect!.>ii i>f the
community where the majority of vote* is t.. be
found, hut hy the payers of the Income tux. lt
ls asserted In -vell-lnformed rin-les that the coun
try may expect a further impost ..f thr,-.- and
one-half pence, and a further addi-, ri to the
same tax in order Vt provide r>r strengthening
th. navy. It ls expected that any substantial
addition to this easily ImpoMd tax will be re
garileil as a Justification f..r altering the condl
tlons under -which lt is levied. The Chancellor
of the Exchequer hus been credited fur a lurg
time with ad-sire to introduce a graduated in?
come tax, and this will possibly be attempted,
The .subject ls surrounded with great _Ifl._ul.lea,
and ought t.i be undertaken by a non-partisan
commission, rather than by a Ministry which
cannot possibly lgn ire the claims t?f Its SUpport
tr* in the polling-booths.
This Imp-.st was originally purely a war
tax. Since Mr. Gladstone's triumphant schleve
jment of tariff reform, very few artic]r-s were
Jeft upon which to raise revenue. The income
tax thus afforded the most facile means of rais?
ing money. Its imposition does not disturb trade.
ll?e the Introduction of a new tariff, and it hus
the further advantage that it raises money from
that body of j>eople whose fewness makes them
least dangerous at the polling-booth. The work?
ing classes pay only as consumers by Indirect
taxation. The upper classes have just the same
tariffs, but with the tax upon Incomes as an
additional burden. There ls no unfairness in the
principle of the Impost which draws a distinction
between the rich man and the poor man. The
danger is that in bidding for the poor man's
vote Govern men ts are tempted to make undue
demands upon the mid Ile and upper classes?
the very classes who at the present moment are
the most strongly opposed to Mr. Gladstone's
Government. Any attempt to recast the Income
tax by a graduated scale. If introduced by the
present Ministry, is sure to amuse the suspicions
of those who already pay the tax.
The Government have ma<'e another change of
front on the Pnrish Councils bill, and the final
passage of the measure seems to be further off
than ever. The week's disputes have raged over
th* distinction between parish charities which
at**, ecclesiastical and th-'.se which nie temporal
or secular. In the carder stages of the bill Mr
Fowler, who had charge of th<* measure, opposed
the dispossession of existing trustees, who are
in moat cases clergy lea or church wardens;
but the disestablishment party, who sit behind
Mr. Gladstone, are not content with Mr. Fowler's
tenderness toward the Establishment, though
Mr. Fowler himself i.t a strong dissenter; and
therefore tills party got up a cabal to bring
pressure upon Mr. Gladstone to change his at
Slr William Harcourt got up to throw over?
board his colleague. Mr. Fowler, and at a later
stage Mr. Gladstone more completely effected
the change of front forced upor. him by one of
those bits of political jugglery which are some?
times needful when politicians try to explain
embarrassing Question*. Rc had to show that
the extinction of the power of the original trus?
tees was consistent with Mr. Fowler's undertak?
ing to leave their position unaffected. In con?
sequence of this step, the Opposition have been
and clergymen, because they belong to the
prospect of the bill passing into law becomes
surrounded with Increasing difficulty.
Aa the measure now stands, churchwardens
and clergymen, because they belong to tin
Church, are tncapaM. of becoming trustees of a
parish charity; but this inequality does not ex?
tend to Catholic priests, or to dissenting min?
isters, or to deacons Moreover, If a churchman
deslr. a to leave any charitable funds for the
benetlt of hlB community, so simple a thing as
a reading-room attached to the church building*,
he must hereafter make his beouest In the shape
of an ecclesiastical trust.
The I'arish Councils bill, which originally
promised to be a simple measure. I* likely to
provoke an much anger throughout t).,- country
as did Home Role. The Opposition Intend to
light the bill at every clause, and lt will be no
easy mnttcr for Mr. Gladstone to arrange how
far the session of 1S93 shall run Into IfM, The
next parliamentary MCalOII will also have a
formidable crop of trouble. The Prime Minister
ls already piling up a multitude of promises
such as Evicted Tenants, Welsh Disestablish?
ment. Regli-trati.in. and Scottish Disestablish?
ment bills, and this week a powerful deputa?
tion of teetotallers Induced hint to spf ak more
Strongly In favor of Local Veto than he has
generally done. Of course his p*r*__a__e_ were
not without ambiguity, Imt the deputation
passed a resolution declaring that th.y regarded
them as an acceptance of their demands.
It may also be necessary to legislate for the
Scotch fishermen. The Government measure of
this year has been turned Inside out by the
House of Lords, and, oddly enough, at the re?
quest of deputations ..f Ha ilea] fishermen from
Aberdeen. Dundee ind Forfarshire, all constitu?
encies returning Gladstonlans. In this matter
the Lords are posing as ravi.rs of the country.
Just as in the Home Rule delates. The sam
?cene was witnessed last night. In regard to the
Employers' Liability bill, when the Peers. In re?
sponse to deputations of workingmen. Introduced
the rontraetlng-out clause, already described, by
the large majority of 14s against 2S. The Lords
also minimized the drastic application of the
bill to the shipping trade. Lord Salisbury de?
clared that' shipowners even doubted If lt would
be possible to conduct their Industry under such
unprecedented conditions as were originally pro?
The commission appointed to inquire Into the
so-called Featherstone outrage has presented a
report which entirely exonerates the action of
the military during the recent colliery riots. It
will be remembered that the soldiers were called |
out to assist the police in suppressing miners' |
violence at Featherstone, near Pontefract. No I
magistrate was present for s-veral hours to read
the riot act. which ls ucuaJly deemed a neces- ,
--O preliminary to the use of military force.
During all this time a mob of many thousands I
literally besieged the handful of soldiers, whose j
lives were Imperilled by brickbats, stones, iron '
holta and bludgeons. At length the magistrate !
-*""rtve_. Then two or three shots were fired, and
a couple of men were killed.
T_?? Radical press and Radical Members raged i
I against the Liberal Government for daring to
, allow workmen to be shot down over a question
j Of wages. Instead of defending the action of
j the magistrate and soldiery, the Government
j allowed an Inquiry, which, fortunately, has re?
sulted in favor of the use of force. The Kadl
j cal newspapers take this rebuff with very bad
Though the Anarchists carried out their
threat to disregard Mr. Asquith's refusal to
,' permit a meeting In Trafalgar Square last Bun
, day, they assembled in so small numbers and
. showed so little spirit that the gathering fls
I zled away. They are this week seeking to ln
| duce Mr. Asquith to allow another meeting In
order to consider his conduct. According to his
recent definition in the House, this step is per?
fectly legitimate. But its adoption would be
like transferring to Trafalgar Bquare a per?
formance of one Of Gilbert and Sullivan's well- ,
known Savoy farces.
Ir does nol escape observation that "The Com?
monweal" threaten-- Mr. Asquith that, if he '
persists in his antagonistic attitude, the Annr- i

Paris, Dee. 9.?A bomb was thrown In .hg
Chamber of Deputies this afternoon happily
without fatal res.Hts. The usual number of
members present when no matter of great im?
portune-* ls to l." considered were in their seats.
and th" business "f the House was proceeding
sleepily, The gallatie- contained a number of
visitors. Including some women, who watched
the proceedings with little interest. In the gal
w-t v above Hr.- benches occupied by the mern
bera <>f the Right wore several strangers, nona
of whom had attracted any attention when
they entered the gallery :"*'l had seats assigned
in the eourse of th-- business of the House
the election of If. Mlrmaa came up for discus?
sion. If. Milman had been speaking from the
tribune, and had Jur-t descended to resume hit
r-'-at when a, tuan in th- gallery above mentioned
threw _ bomb toward the floor of the House.
The bomb must ha." had a time fuse attached
to it, for as lt parsed th" head ..f Professor
I.emlre. Deputy f..r lla/.ebroek. lt exploded with
a terrille report. A rk-nse i-loud of smoke and
dust ascended, shutting nut from view for a
Mme those sitting In th" body of the House. For
i siturle Instant the House was perfeetly quiet,
and then, the members and others realizing
what had occurred, th?re was the wildest excite?
ment. The officer**- detailed to guard the Cham
ber were the first to n-galn their senses. They
at once shut the Rreat doors leading to the
I'hamber to prevent the escape of the bomb
thrower. Th,- people in tht galleries fled In wild
? li.-- t.'..-r, fearing that other bombs would be
thrown. They were in a state bordering on
freney, and almoet fell over each other in their
wild but futile haste to get out of the building.
< me woman, who lt was subsequently learned
waa an American, had been hit on the forehead
? 1 piece of tbs Stalag i-f th" bomb, and she
fled With bl. od streaming over her fare.

On the floor of the Hovea the excitement waa
fully as great aa that la the galleries. Many
of the rr ie in bi rs rushed for the exits, feating
every moment to hear another explosion. M.
Dupuy, the prsaMent *>f th.- Chamber, was sp
parentty tho coolest man In the Chamber. Two
women, besides the American lr. the lower gsl
lery. were Injured. A man sitting beside the
h inh-thpiwer was also Injured.
Among the Deputies wounded were Abbe
. ("unt Truil Henri Lanjvilnais and _L
l. ?; '
Professor lumire ls a Catholic Socialist. He
v.,.* .le. t"d to ivpr-sent the 1st District of
Hasebrock, and this ls his first term of service
In the Chamber of l>*-puties. He is professor
of rhetorlo at the College of St- Francoise

"Ireland In Australia" and "Cardinal Manning

Th- excitement among th* members, wild
tlioiiKh lt was. did not last long. The wounded
w.i" taken to committee-rooms, and medical
isslstance was hastily summoned to attend
them. While this wai being done some of the
reporters picked up on the floor of the House
Its ot' metal snd ? number ?>f h men-hog nails
thal had evidently formed part of the contents
if the bomb.
Opposite rio- gallery from which the bomb was
brown is the Kaili ry devoted to the use of the
'orelgn press representatives A number of them
,vh i were in the gallery aatd they first thought
Ainu tba y beard the explosion that some one had
I i-.-.i u revolver on the floor of the Cham
.. i*. The report'was s> loud and the flash of
Ight r* . brilliant, however, that they were quickly
?onvlnced of their mistake. The dust raised by
le explosion wa* so thi.-l; that the clothing of
dy lu the Chamber presented an ashy
BCS-MEM PkOCEEOg A fi. VIN.
Aa soon as tbe smoke and dust had cleared
Lway the members resumed their scats and busi
i.-is proceeded. If. Montfort ascended the trt
?une, .in i In ? perfectly steady voice took up the
llscusslon of the question before the House, ag
hough nothing "ut of the ordinary had o_
urred. When the dlscusston hnd been finished
I. Cnslmlr-Perler, the Prime Minister, said that
ie .Ii.I not wish to interrupt the business of the
.amber, bul he felt compelled to aasure the
louse that the Oovernment would do its duty.
M. Dupuy said that he and the entire Chamber
? ?-li'.-ii that their sympathy be conveyed to the
POLICE IMI'l'AITI- N>.
Aft-r the sitting was ended tho n'embers of the
"bamber, j- un ll tts and \i*-;:.,rs gathered la
roups In the lobbies and excitedly discussed the

When M. Dupuy. President of the Chamber,
ascended from the chair and crossed the Salle
<? ia Paix, he received an ovation, owing to
la unmoved serenity when the bomb burst.
M. Montfort'- action In continuing the discus*
...ri ai soon ai th.- smoke had cleared away waa
i" subject of general admiration and congrat
tatton. He said that In acting as he did he
ad only done his duty In showing thc world
lat the brave French nation cannot be In
mldated by the scoundrels devising and com*
lining such a dastardly crime.
One report had tr that twenty-five or thirty
.none were wounded.
In his speeeh in the Chamber after the ex?
tortion this afternoon Premier Caslmlr-Perler
? e.-il with th"r!e w.r.lsr
"So letv has laws with which to defend lt

"Tho moment Deputy Milman descended front
