Gen. Joe Wheeler was indorsed in a

him as a unit in the convention.
Great interest in the general's huhulf

THE HOME RILE CRISIS.
GLADSTONE F0 El) TO RETREAT
FR01 UIS POSITION.
His Propositions Modified to Save His
Goveramest From llefat-Ra-mors
Lonixik, April 6. The Cabinet met
at noon to-day and remained in ses
sion until 2 o'clock. Mr. Gladstono
laid before the Ministers his Irish
home rule scheme. It is reported
that the discussion which followed re
sulted in continuing the ministerial
opposition to certain feature of the
Prem er's proposal. Tho Earl of
Kimberly, Secretary for India; Mr.
Childers, Home Secretary; Sir Wm.
Vernon Harcourt, Chancellor of the
Exchequer, and Mr. Mundella, presi
dent of the Board of Trade, arc, it is
said, as much opposed ns ever to the
feature which surrender control of tne
customs in Ireland. As Mr. Glad
stone remains firm, the Mininters, ru
mor says, will resign.
SIR II. PONSONBY,
private secretary of tho Queen, was
sent by her Majesty this afternoon to
confer on her behalf with lirdliarting
ton, tho leader of tho Whigs in the
House of Commons. The interview
lasted a long time. Afterwards the
Marquis of Salisbury hail a long pri
vate conferen c with lrrd Darlington.
THK l.lBKItM. nlM'ONKNT
of Vr. Gladstone's Irish polirv are
steadily increasing their strength and
are doing everything within their
power to bring about a coalition be
tween themselves and tho Conserva
tive's under a Liberal leader. Lord
Ilartington is at pre'sent the only
available man who would be accepta
ble to th Tory part of the coalition.
MB. GLADSTONE WILL MODIFY HIS TKO-l-OKAIJS.
It was slated in the lobby of the
House of Commons this evening that
Messrs. -Mundella and Clnlilers had
resigned their seats in the Cabinet. It
was expected that Mtssrs. Fowler,
Henenge and Broadhurst would se
cede from the government Thursday.
The consensus of opinion was that the
frresent government was doomed. The
atest inlormat on, however, is that
tbe Cabinet feud has temporarily
abated. Mr. Gladstone modifies his
proposals regarding customs con
trol by giving the English Par
liament the right to veto all
fiscal enactments of Ireland providing
that an imperial receiver shall collect
customs and excise, and making im
perial claims the first charges on the
revenues. llio malcontents conse
quently withheld their resignations.
r. GludHtoneistnorouirtily supported
in all his proposals by Earl Granville,
Earl ltosebery, the Marquis of Upon
and Mr. Can pbell ltanneriuan. Sir
Farrer llershell does not partic
ipate in tho discussion on home
rule, but lie upholds tho pro
posed land bill,, and lias relieved
Mr. Gladstone of drafting the latter
scheme. Mr. G adstone is in robust
health and good voice and is confident
of succiess On Thurxdnv r. Cham
berlain will speak after Mr. Gladstone
and Lord llartingtotr will move to ad
journ. It is reported that l-ord Salis
bury has oersuaded Lord Hartington
to move tlint tbe House refuse to con
sider Mr. Gladstone's bill.
A GLOWING THinl'TH TO THK LATE MR.
Mr Gladstone paid a glowing tribute
to the lute W.. E. Foster, in tho
llou o of Commons this evening. He
spoke of the universal and deep regret
that is felt in the less of so worthy a
man, and said thut Air. torster had
been one of the most distinguished
members of the House. Ho was a
man worthy to bo remembered, both
on account of his public: acts and his
fiersonal character, lie hadenrned a
ligh place as a legislator .through
carrying with great ability, two mens
ures oi high importance and complex
ity. These were the education and
the ballot acts. Mr. Forster, aid the
Premier, was a man of uuflinc ing
courage. 1 hough a lover ot peace, he
was profoundly a tached to the wel-
lure and greatness ot Ins country and
was acutely sensible to whatever per
tained to ita honor.
When Mr. Gladstone had finished,
Sir IV ichacl Hicks-Beach, the Con
servative leader in the House, arose
and said : -'After the eloquent eulogy
of Mr. Forster just delivered, I can
only add that the Conservatives cor
dially sympathize in the tribute that
has been paid to his memory. We
feel that the nation has lost a man of
high tourage. great ability am", sincere
devotion to his country." The last
words uttered by Mr. Forster before
his death yesterday were, "No home
AN EFFORT TO PREVENT DISRUPTION.
The Timr says that a desperate ef
fort was made at yesterday's meeti g
of theCabinet to prevent adisruption,
and that the effort succeeded. Mr.
Gladstone consented to eliminate the
proposal to yield control of the cus
toms t the Irish Parliament.

TBE BIRMINGHAM CAOOOS

in London to fully discuss Mr. Glad
stone's Irish proposals.
T e Birmingham Pott rays it is au
thorized to dent tbe statement that
Mr. Chamberlain is treating with the
Conservatives with a view of forming
a coalition. Mr. Chamberlain, the
paper says, will-join no coalition which
has for its object the displacement of

Last week K. G. Jones, a commer

hud offered to pay hix license tax with
State coupons which wero refused,
was arrested for selling goods without
a license. His cose came up for a
hearing before tho Hustings Court of
this city. Counsel demurred to the
indictment that Jones was not liable
to prohccution because he had ten

Court. Alter argument tho court
sustained the demurrer, holding thut
the accu ed hail a right to (jo on with
his business without a license after
the tender of the coupons and that
tho prosecution could not be main
