?THE SEVKN WEEKS' SESSION?A REVO
LUTIONAKY EDUCATIONAL DILL.
London, April 4.
The adjournment of Parliament for the Easter 1
holidays brings to an end seven weeks of desul- ,
tury aesrueslon during which little progress has |
befn made with the real legislative business of
the session The Irish Land bill has not yet
haea presented; the Education bill has been I
Introduced St the last moment by Sir John I
Gorst In a lvmlnous. If not brilliant, speech, and ?
? series of small measures hae been brought |
forward In one House or the other. The Naval I
W^rks bill has been pass.d, and the preliminary
financial votes have been taken; but this Is a
mesgre record for a Government with an over?
whelming majority behind It ln the Commons.
?The bores have been more fluent than ever be?
fore, and they have taken the place of the old
time obstructionists. Business has dragged, al?
though the closure has been frequently applied,
?nil the debate on the Queen's speech was un
pnuelly short. There are many complaints from
the Government side that Mr. Balfc ur does not
?mow his own mind, and that the House ia not
The Liberal Opposition certainly have not
been responsible for legislative blocks. They
have challenged divisions Infrequently, and
brought on only one set debate on a vote of
censure. Apart from the Soudan question,
which Involved a direct reversal of the Liberal
policy of 1S83. there Ins been no contentious
subject of real Importance under discussion.
The Liberal leaders have been ehrewd enough
to avoid unnecessary display of the weakness
of the Opposition ln voting strength. They have
been preoccupied, moreover, with internal ques?
tione of reorganization. Nominally there has
been a feud between rival groups of wire-pullers
and tacticians. In reality, important changes
are going on under the surface. The leadership
fa not In dispute, although Lord Rosebery seems
to suggest It by the frequency with which he
spesks and the belated ardor with which he I
repels Chargea relating to the last batch of j
Liberal peerages. The Huddersfleld meeting of
tht Liberal Federation has reaffirmed allegiance1
to him; but he *lone can vindicate his claim
to the titular leadership, and he can do this
ln only one nay. That is by recognizing the
urgent necessity of party reorganization on
democratic llr.es, with a eLmpler and more prac?
tica! programme than the one formulated at
Newcastle. Lord Rosebery has shown himself
to be a philosopher, and an optimist ln the
crisis of Liberal fortunes; but that Is hardly
enough. An organizer Is needed, rather than
a humorist, or a fluent after-dinner speaker.
There Is a code of principles to be recast and
grati)? abridged; there Is a demoralized party
tn be reconstituted and invigorated with new
LEADERS IN PARLIAMENT.
Not a single reputation has been made dur?
ing the aevea weeks of wearisome discussion
ln the Commons, and only one has been ma?
terially lmpri ved. Mr. Curzon. as Under Bee*
retary for Foreign Affairs, has been constantly
under fire, and he ha* astonished the House by
hi? coolness and excellent Judgment, extorting
a tribute of admiration from Mr. Labouchere,
who has not succeeded either in irritating or
confusing him. Mr. Balfour has disappointed
his friends as leader. He epeaks well, but he
lacks the talent of arranging and ordering the
business of the House by timely compromises.
Mr. Chamberlain Is easily the best debater on
the Government side, speaking with clearness
and fluency, and displaying extraordinary men?
tal elasticity. There is only one man on the
Liberal side who 1b a fair match for him. This
is Sir William Harcourt. The marvellous quick?
ness wllh which, In the Soudan debate, he per?
ceived the on? weak point ln the armor of the
Unionist Achilles and concentrated upon It the
resources of his logic and Irony, was worthy
of the best Intellectual traditions of the Com
rnorw. Sir William Harcourt Is the most ag
??-? sslve leader on the Liberal side, and ?he
best Parliamentary hand. He Is not always
jiklng, and he has a staUllness of manner in
!?.'??ping with the dignity of politi? il authority.
In spite of the common English disposition to
?llsparage him, It w??uld be natural to forecast
I Is ultimate euccetslon to the leadership If he
hid thoroughly good henlth.
What the Opposition has needed more than
anything else Is a new point of concentration,
DnJ this has not been offered in the debates on
foreign complications and naval preparations
which have engrossed the attention of Parlia?
ment. The Education bill has been ?iwaited with
??agern'ss on that side of the House because it
has been rashly nssumfd that the Government
would abare the fat? of the Gladstone Ministry,
which wai marly wrecked in 1870 on the rocks
of religions bigotry. Now that it Is fairly be?
fore the country It seems probable that It will
weaken rather than strengthen the Govern?
ment. It le a many-sided compromise measure
ln which good and bad tendencies are c?rlous]\
balanced and readjusted. There Is hardly a
candid crlr!^ who cannot find excellent features
la it; and, on the other hand, there Is not an
?Jtttfpoktn supporter of the Government who Is
?M?ate* with It.
??< ADMINISTRATIVE REVOLUTION.
To* most Important change effected by this
?? ?HI be a procens of decentralization, by
wWch the functions of the Education Deport?
a?t In Whitehall will be paralyzed and the
authority of the School Boards seriously Im?
paired. There will be a transfer of con?
trol from trained experta in the Education
apartment and the School Boards to com
mltteee of the County Councils. These commit?
tees, one for each county, will be empoweY?? 1
to Inspect the schools, supervise the sanitary
arrengemenre. revtae the course of Instruction,
apportion the granta from the Imperial Treas?
ury and expend the money eat apart from the
rates for educational purposes. The bill pro?
poses a revolution in ad nlnlstratlve ayatem.
? establishes a s-parate educational depart?
ment for each county. in t\try county and
county borough there will be a Statutory Com?
mittee, ..omlnated by the Council, and it will
be the sole channel through which public money
will reach the school?. It will not only have al?
most unlimited powers over the elementary
schools, but >t will also administer the fund?
applicable to secondary, technical. Industrial
?nd reformatory schools. In administrative
control this will be a revolutionary measure.
The Educational Department in Whitehall will
?e emptied of authority.
Theie changes are propoeed In response to
h?o general complainte against the existing edu
?stional ayetem?one made by the taxpayers
??d the other by m?nagera of voluntary schools.
The first grievance has been the extravagance
*f Behool Boards. Year after year the ex?
penditures of the Board Schools have mounted
?goer and higher, until taxpayer? have groaned
Older the burdens Imposed upon them. Mem
??*? of School Boards, as they have become
latereeted In their work, have not always
'?"?ted the cost of Improved buildings and
??rtsode. Buildings have been enlarged, much
Mention haa been paid to ventilation, sanitary
Seditions, and the original character of the
?"?jsentary schools has been changed through
J** introduction of higher courses of study,
??the Judgment of taxpayers, many of these
?**"*1 and alterations have been unnecessary,
Jj*JIhey have cried out for deliverance from
jyeuonal zealots. The Government's pro
!?**? w,,l transfer power from the hands of
?? School Boards to Statutory Committees of
???County Counclla, representing dlreetly the
afj?**0?1" oT'svance has been the enforcement
-- *** ?rovieiona of the Education act in a
*?d harassing way agalnat the volun
?oaomlnatioaal schools. During the
Mr. Achud was charged
with being exceedingly harsh In dealing with
the voluntary schools Whether this accusa?
tion was well or HI founded. It le undoubtedly
true that the Minister of Education through
the exercls? of discretionary powers can sub?
ject voluntary schools to rigorous tests, de?
prive them of State aid, close them for sani?
tary reasons, and discriminate against them
ln many ways. The Government till deprives
the central office In Whitehall of the authority
with which It has been armed and empowers
the County Councils to order Inspections and
to supervise the operation of the education
T'use administrative changes, while designed
to remedy grievances of which the patrons of
the voluntary schools have complained, are
open to serious objections. Under centralized
rupervl3ion there has been an approach to a
hom?jgeneous educational system for England
and Wales. When Inspectors are appointed by
County Councils, there will be no uniformity of
standards; every Statutory Committee will be
a law unto Itself; the occupation of the School
Boards will be at an end. While they are not
formally abolished, they might ss well be, 'or
their authority and usefulness will lapse with
the passage of the bill. There will be many
conflicts of authority. These features of the
bill can hardly fall to excite criticism during
the approaching debates. The Government
measure will meet with much opposition from
partisans of the Board School*
SECTARIAN SCHOOLS AIDED.
The measure will, however, be accepted with
a feeling of relief by the friends of the volun?
tary schools. It not only releases them from
discriminations from which those institutions
have suffered, but it also increases their reve?
nues. There will bo an additional grant of four
shillings a child from the Imperial Treasury,
amounting to $2.500.000 annually. This is not
as much money as the friends of the Church
of England and Roman Catholic schools ex?
pected, but it is a good sum. and will help to
eaee up the burdens of private support of the
elementary Institutions In which four out of
every seven children In England and Wales are
educated. Cardinal Vaughan and English
Churchmen perceive clearly enough that the
bill, as ? whole, promotes the Interests of sec?
tarian education. It provides a substantial en?
dowment for denominational schools, which
have been outclassed by the Board Schools; It
enables them to borrow money from the local
rates; It releases them from School Board hos?
tility, and it secures their permanent retention
ln the general educational system.
The famous conscience clause of the Act of
1870 Is compromised like nearly every other
essential feature of the system. Heretofore
families objecting to sectarian teaching could
protect their children against It. The law pro?
vided, moreover, that ln every State-aid?-d
school no Instruction should be given Involving
the teaching of catechisms and fofmularlea In
future all elementary schools will r?*celve Stat?
aid. and groups of parents desiring to have a
sectarian catechism taught can accomplish th.-lv
purpose in any school, whether Il.iard or volun?
tary. That Is to say, a Weeleyau group can
Insist upon having its own religions teaching In
a Roman Catholic or Church of England school;
and sjieclal religious classes can be formed 'n
any Board School. Thin religious clause will
undoubtedly provoke bitter Opposition from
many sides. It will Involve a renewal of the
religious contioversy?which was waged twenty
six years ago. Logically, moreover. It counter?
acts the main purpose of the bill, which Is to
strengthen and relieve the denominational
schools; for. If parente can get special religious
teaching for their children ln the Board Schools,
there will no longer be any necessity for main?
taining the sectarian schtnls.
Indeed, the more cli.s.-ly the new measure
is studied the more artificial it appearn as a
concordat. It le a compromise bristling with
controversisi t>olnts, and profoundly unsettlln.7
In Its tendencies. The continuance of the ?lual
system of sectarian ar.d Hoard Schools Is neces?
sary. Sir John Gorst prevea this wh*n he
show? that a majority of the children In Eng?
land end Wales aro educated ln the volontari
aehools, and that it would cost th- country over
$12G?.????,000 to sub-tltut?? Board Schools for them.
Hut the anomali? s of the dual <<>s!>m will cer?
tainly be increased' by provisions for diversify?
ing sectarian instruction In both groupa of
schools, and for bringing th.m under th?? direct
supervision of local authority everywhere.
Votes for the new bill will not be lacking, for
the Irish Nationalists will take the places of
Unionists who rrwiy desert the Government; but
outside Parliament It eeema probable that the
measure will mnk?? more eni-mlee than friends.
The Liberals are likely to profit by It ln the
constituencies, especially as It Is a compromise
of a compromis??, and o?S that unsettles more
Questiona than It s?-ttles. I. N. I''.

was completed and adopted by the Committee on
International Arbitration of the New-York Har As?
sociation on Saturday. The Har Association will
meet at Albany on Thursday, and the plan will then
be submitted to the member? for approval. If It Is
adopted it will probably bo forwarded to President
The members of the committee are reticent about
the plan adopted, as they decide! that It ought not
to be given to the public before Its adoption by the
association. It was learned, however, that the pro?
posed court wa? to consist of the leading Jurists of
the world. The committee was composed of William
D. Veeder, of Hroiklvn, chairman; Walter S. Logan,
of New-York. W. Martin Jones, of Rochester; Sher?

asked about the matter, he said: "I do n?it think It
advisable to ?ay anything about the spedile details

ht TRICOIM'IS. EX-PREMIER OF GREECE.
Athens, April 12.?A telegram received here
from Cannes, France, says that M. Trlcoupts, ex- ?
Prime Minister of Greece, died there yesterday.
He had been ln 111 health for some time, and had
sought the south of France In hopes that the
milder climate would effect a cure.
M. Trlcoupl?. has often been described as "the
Gladstone of Greece," owing to the fact that when?
ever ln office as Prime Minister he has invariably
devoted ills energy to Internal reorganization and to
the development of the economic resources of hie
country, rather than t> the furtherance of those
Pan-HeUenle asptratloaa which are the cause of all
the present political troubles and rinunciai ruin of
the Grecian kingdom. For many years he alter?
natoli In onice with his rival. If. Delyannis. the head
of the party which alms at territorial aggrandize?
ment, and whenever TrlCOUpls returned to the head
of affairs he Invariably fourni that M. DclyannH bad
not only spent the entire surplus which TrlCOUpls
had i? ft in ?he treasury, hut bad likewise plunged
the unfortunate kingdom etili further Into the ter?
rible morass ut debt In Which It Is now struggling.
M. Trlcoupts spoke Bngllab perfectly, having
spent many years Ir. London as Charg? d'Affaires,
and to him belongs the credit of having first
Buggeeted to Mr. Oladstone the eeasloa by Great
liritaln to Greece of the Ionian Islande, all the
negotiations In connection with which were con?
ducted by him.
Scrupulously honest and abstaining ?o completely
fro-n the miny Opportunities Which he enjoyed of
miiklne; a fortune that he died a poor man, he pos
seseed manv other traits of ? nature to eOBSUMBd

FATAL SHOOTISG AFFAIR IS DANBURY.
A TARTY OF ??G?? MEN. ON A LARK. ATTEMPT
TO UNTER A BOOSE AND ARE FIRED LTON?
ONE IS KILLED AND ANOTHER
Danbury, Conn., April 12.?This city was the scene
of a shooting affair early thl? morning that may re
?ult In a double murder. One man Is dead and an?
other is lying In the hospital. William Flltcroft,
who did the shooting, 1? under arrest. His victims
are Frank Ketchum, of No. 31 Osborne-st., and
Willis Tomlinson, who boards at No. 62 Beaver-et.
The former was killed and the latter mortally
Ketchum and Tomlinson were two of a party of
six young men who were out on a lark Saturday
night. Early this morning they went to No. 12 Wild
man's Lane, and knocked at the door, but were re?
fused admittance. They then tried to break into the
place, whereupon Flltcroft appeared and told them
to assist, emphasizing his demands by producing a
gun and threatening to shoot If they did not obey.
The young men withdrew, but returned In a few
moments. Flltcroft again appeared, and said he
would certainly shoot If they did not leave. One of
the party made some derisive remark?, and Flltcroft
fired. The party then ran to Maln-?st., and It was
not until Ketchum had gained that thoroughfare
that he said to one of his companions that he had
been shot, and felt he was dying. Tomlinson then
said that he had also been shot, and he sank to the
ground. The rest of the party ran for assistance
and Tomlinson wwas removed to the hospital. Ketch
urn's body was taken to the Morgue. Tomlinson
was hit ln the neck and face. Flltcroft discharged
one side of a double-barrelled gun.
Flltcroft, the inmates of the house, and Rufus
Qanung. Theodore Veedenberg, Thomas Marasco,
Charles Young, the companions of the men who
were shot, were at once arrested.
The affair has created a sensation, from the fact
that all the young men are well known, and their
families are prominent socially. Ketchum was twen?
ty years old. He came here about a year ago from
Farmlngdale. N. J., and was a hat maker. His
father Is In bufine?? In New-York ?"Ity. Tomlineon's
parent? reside in Danbury. Flltcroft Is a Well-known
pedestrian. A couple of months ago a party broke
Into this same boas? and Flltcroft was badly
pummelled. He had hie assailants arrested, and, it
1? said, the police advised him to use ills (run if an?
other incident of the kind occurred.
