PoMUon ok the Irish
Londoh, April 10. Mr. Gladstone
froponnded hie Irish land bill to the
House of Commons this evening.
There was hardly any excitement at
tending the event, compared with the
enthusiasm which attended the mem
orable proceed irgs of yesterday week,
when toe home rale measnre was pre
sented. At noon to-dsy but ninety
rests on the floor of the house bad
been "hatted," and these were neatly
- all taken by Irish members. At 4
o'clock the house was crowded to its
rose in bis place at 5:25 p.m., and was
greeted with cheers. Wben he begun
to GDcak his voice was loir and hunk v.
He (aid the government was d rected
toward securing contentment among
the people of Ireland and tbe perma
nent restoration of social order. The
speaker's proposals would greatly btn
efit the tenants cf Ireland, but tbe
landlords were the r-rincipal object of
the measure, although he thought
many of these landlords were most
hostile to the government's policy. At
the outset the speaker wisbtd to make
the most emphatic denial that it was
the intention to ask tbe Scotch and
English to run any pecuniary risk on
account of the landlords of Ireland.
TBI HISTORY OF IBILAMO
was one long indictment against its
land-owners. Agrarian crime had
originated and increased under the
absenteeism of landlords and raising
01 rents, as meir expenses while away
from Ireland increased. Oppression,
wedded to misery, bad a hideous
progeny. Urime bad been endowed
with vitality to perpetuate Itself and
hand down its miserable inheritance
irom generation to generation. Eng
land was not clear of responsibility,
for the deeds of Irish landlords were
tnglian deeds. With the power in
our own hands, we have I oked on
and done nothing. Alter the union
absenteeism became general. National
sentiment cca .ed to have a beneficial
influence on the relatiots between
the landlord end tenant. The union
itself was obtained against the sense
and wiBhes ot every clas by
WHOLESALE BRIBERY AND UNBLUSHING
The land act was intended to go into
'effect on tbe came day that the home
. rule bill woald become operstivei It
con, a not go on without the operation
oi me omer, wnicn would provide
legislature in Ireland to appoint
statutory authorities to deal with' the
landed estates and act between vendor
and purchaser. The DnrchitM
be made through the issue of 180,000.-
AAA t 4.1 . .
vju ox iuree per cent, etoca issued at
par. These new Irsh consols might,
with the consent of the Treasury, be
commuted for stock of a lower de
nomination. If the stock could
be issued for the State, Bcrip of
equal amount would be issued for
the same purpose. The act was to
give tbe landlords the option to eell
nut uoder its terms. Its enactment
was co t nned to agricultural holdings.
and did not include mansions having
demesnes and woods. The State au
thorities, acting between the peapant
and land-owner, would purchase tbe
mnu iroin the latter and put the peas
ant in possession as absolute proprie
tor, subject to an annual rent charged
to the total payments of the purchase
money. The St.-ite would not force
tbe small occupiers to become pro
prietors. In districts where the
POPULATION WAS CONGESTED,
the State Would have the power to de
cide whether expropriation of the too
crowded lands snonld be compulsiry.
Nobody except the immediate land
lords would have the option to
eell to the incumbrance, and
that he must eell by fore
closure and not at option for him
self. Application to sell would have
to be made by all the tentnts on an
estate, and all these applications and
sales wonld be registered. Tenants
would, be required to give security for
costs in certain cases. The Land
Commissioner would be empowered
to refuse application. The basis of
prices would depend npon the rental
for fixed period. The judicial
rental of 1845 would be thee andard
in all cases wherein the rent of the
land to be sold was then fixed. In all
other cact s tbe LandCommission would
have tbe power to arrive at a price by
comparing tbe other judicial rentals
with Griffith's valuation. The Land
Commission would also be allowed to
examine the s'ate of the books con
cerning etates fjr ten years back.
Tweniy years rental would be a
nominal purchase in exceptional cases.
Twenty-iwo years rental would make
a purchase. Applications for a eMe
would not bs received after March 31,
1890. Ten millions of pounds of the
stock would be Issued during 1887;
r20,000,000 in 1888; X20.W 0,000 in
18S9, and 200t0,000 in excess the
two succeeding years.

ing a receiver for the general rente,
armed with snfficient authority to

irg into contact with the new
pioarielary, the repayment of
the purchiKe money would bo amply
becnred. Tbe change npon the Inch
exchequer would be 2,(100,000 per
annum, to meet which it would be
able to levy for rents amounting to
2, 00,000 per annum, and this turn,
would be tbe fir t charge on the rents

contribution, the sum paid to England

MB. CBAMBIBUlN'a SPEECH.
Following Mr. Ghaaine, Mr. Cham
berlain read the let r which I e sent
to Mr. Ul.idstune dtidering his resig
nation bs a ruemler ot the CaMnet.
In the letter Mr. (bimbor'a n stated
that Mr. GUdi'.o.t's podcy would
throw a heavy mrden on Ore a'
B.ilnin, entailings enormous addi
tion to the ni.tiora debt and probably
an immediate iccree of tsxn'tan, net
l) S-cure tne -nnon of the King,

Chamber a'n then rent on t say that
me land propoHats.alttiougb they bad
been modified sine he i a 1 left the
Cabinet, would ttill mposeagreat bur-
aen on ureat orna i without eoilicient
security for the loins edvaicid.
The bill was calcul.ted not so much
to benefit the tenets a a sod for the
landlords. Although only 50,000,000
was ti be issued, tie option to sell
was offered to landords holding land
vaiuea at jsiou.uji'UOO. Supposing
that the full numbetof ODtons Uineli
should be accepted, tow would all the
money be provtdeu i He opposed the
bill on irinciple, tecauss it princi
pally protected the andloide. If tbe
Irian FarlianoeLt wa to be intrusted
with the protfcioi of the commer
cial daises and tht maintenance of
tocial order, wh; could it not
be runted to protect tbe
lanciorasr ine cuvernment was
putting on Ireland a burden which
no Irish member could declare to be
af air p. ice to give for the landlord's
right. Cheers The Irish people
would regard the bargain as oue im
post d by a foreign coantry, and would
be justified in takir.g the first oppor
tunity to repudiate it. If the b irgain
should be rt pud fed low would it he
enforced T The government c.ml i not
disregard the riHls to toe Briti-.ili tax

While refusing to assiet diearving
crofters in Hcolland and postponii.g tbe
claims of the Eogidi laborer, could
tbe government consistent' grant
large bums rums for the benefit of the
Irish peasantry f Chuers In ct n

not an lirecnncilable opponer t ol Mr.

MB. PAKNELL 1
said that, not having had Mr. Cham
berlain's advantage of a Cabinet seat,
he was not prepared to express a too
confident opinion upon the merits and
demerits of the scheme until he had
seen the provisions of the bill. Mr.
Cnaiaberla n hod spoken in deservedly
complimentary terms of Mr. Davitt
and had expressed a desire to know
the latter's opinion of the land nur-
chase bill. Mr. Parnell ass' red Mr.
Chamberlain that Mr. Davitt would
not act from motives of personal spite
or jealousy Parnellite cheers but
solely out of regard for Ireland.
To the speaker it appeared that
the appointment of a Receiver-General
was unnecessary and absurd because,
according to the Premier's statement,
the receipts from the customs and ex
cise duties in Ireland will amount to
only 20,001). Of the total amount
payable by Ireland to the Imperial
Exchequer, would it not be sufficient
security if England took a lien upon
the revenue collected by Irish au
thority in the event of tne customs
failing to y eld a rum siflfi ient to
meet the imperial chnnresT Ihean-
pointmentof a Receiver-General would
be most offensive to Ireland, bo ause
u wouiu snow a reluctance to trust
Irishmen even for the sum of 20,000
pounds. Ihe object of the Irish mem
bers was not to make the measure a
party question, but by yielding as
much as possible to settle once for ail
this troublesome, difficult and danger
ous matter. If the Irish landlords
threw out the measure he hoped tho
offer to assist them with English
credit would not be renewed, but that
the bill for the government of Ireland
would be pressed forward by itself.
tlear, hear J
announced that the bill would be in
the members' hands Monday. Per
mission was given to introdu.e the
bill, and the second reading was fixed
lor wav i:itn.
mr. Gladstone's statement
of the provisions of his Irish land bill
lacked completeness and eloarnees,
and evoked no enthusiasm, even the
Parnellites remaining silent during its
delivery. In the course of his remarks
the Premier said : -"I m strongly im
pressed with the belief that it is Dot
possible for Parliament to acquire any
tuHiiuaie iuea oi ine measure except
upon a close inspection of it," The
bill itself met with general acceptance
and this will have influence in curtail
ing the debate. The vagueness of M r.
Gladstone's language on the proposed
issue of 3 per cents caused a period of
surprise and confusion as to what
amount should be loaned to the Irish
eicbequer. In explaining this sec
tion of the bill, Mr. Gladstone said :
'Purchases under the act are to be
made in a 3 per cent stock issue I on
application, probably, of the Land
Commissioners to the Treasury, under
regulations made by the Jreasurv.
The 3 ner cent, stock will, in all likeli
hood, be what is termed the new 3 per
cents. The atno nt of the new 3
per cents is 1SO,000,00(1. quite
sufficient to insure extensive dealings.
It so happens that the mass of the
I Irish dealings in stocks is about (,
000,000 in consols against 27,000,000
in the new 3 per cents. It is, there
fore, probable that Block will be most
convenient for the Irmh holders. "The
House interpreted this language to
mean that, in addition to the 18,
000,000 new 3 per cente already in
existence, there will bo a fresh issue
of 50 00,000 on account of the Irish

HOW THE BILL IS HK. EIVKI).
From opinions gathered in the lob
by of the House of Commons it is
learned the Conservatives believe the
amount which the land bill proposes
to expend in buying out the landlords
will not be enough to cover the pro
posed purchase. Maj. Sanderson, M.
P. for Ulster, cannot separate tho bill
from the home-rule scheme. He
thinks the former measure fair if
the latter (is also accepted, but
the gove nmunt cannot sell the coun
try on a twenty-years' purchase. 'I ho
Irish members are divided in their
opinions on the subject. Some are
willing to pay for the liddancu of the
landlords, but the majority consider
that eight or ten years is a
long enough time in which
to complete tho purchase. Mr.
Davitt lays the only persons who
will benefit by the scheme will be tho
absentee landlords, who will jump at
the opportunity to sell, anil be de
lighted to g-t r'l of their property.
Many Radicals are pleased with tho
reduction of the sum and consider the
security good. Others consider the
amount extravagant and predict Unit
the bill will not pass in its present

to the Senate over W. L. McConnico,
a Whig, and one of the foremost

fr in the ability with which it was
conducted by the two men and tho
enthusiasm thereby infused into it,
acquired a State importance. The

was selected for elector at large for
the State. He canvassed the State
from one end to the other, meeting
more competitors from the ablest of
his opponents than was ever done in
any former political canvass in this
State. This canvass easily placed him
among the foremost political debaters
in the State. Upon the breaking out
