A r0 LI) DECLABiriON OF HIS
VltWS AM) PRINCIPLES.
1 lie McuHnre for tlie Sole Purpose
of 'Jlrlug Peace and l'nleut
meut to Ireland.
London, May 10. At the honr for
the o(.eiiiog of the session the Hocse
of Commons was crowded in every
part. The Prince of Wales, Prince
Christian, Mr. Paelpe, the United
States Minister, and M. Floqnette,
President of the French Cnamher of
Deputies, were among the dislin
eniBhed Tisitors in the galleries.
When Mr Gladstone arose he was
received with load cheers. On quiet
being restored the Premier moved the
second reading ol the come rale bill.
He said ho did not intend at present
to ask tbe House ti continue the de
bate on tbe bill from day to day.
If U. ULADSTONCM SPEECH.
Mr. Gladstone's voice at the outset
of bis speech in advocacy of his mo
tion was indistinct, boatse and leebie.
but it cleared as he proceeded. He
said be desired at the opening to make
. a statement of his personal portion,
which he bad entirely refia'ned f om
making when be introduced tbe bill
He had never at any period desired
home rale in Ireland as incompatible
with imperial unity. Uriel of "Oh!
Oh!" "Tfcat was Ittxictly." Cheer.
The coutiadictiou Lad come from some
members who visited Midlothian,
making speeches Huffed full of totally
untrue and .worih'eea etatements.
Cheers. In 1871 bo expns ed the
great satisfaction with which be bad
heard the statements of the suppoit
ers of home rule, as the statement'
- contemplated notning leading to a
severance of tbe Empire. Pareellita
cheer. Two qnestiocs aiways pre
eented themselves to his mind regard
ing the borne rule. Firetly, it must
show fiat it was desired by the great
mass of the ptople of Ireland. That
condition bad never been absolutely
and nneqnivccally presented until tbe
pawing of tbe representation cf the
people ast cheers; eecordly, was
tome rule compatible with the unity
of the empire? Teat question bad
been answered by Mr. Parnell, woo
had declared that what he sought un
der the name of home rale was simply
TH AUTONOMY OP IBKLARD.
The speaker had teen charged with
experimenting ia politics without
grave cause. Here they had the
gravest of cause, for they were dealing
with a people and country whose
radical rympathies were sga-.nst law,
especially criminal law, which had
never obtained the confidence or the
obeyance of the Irish people. Alter-
. tMtiroteercive and reform measures
had been tried. Ttev had equally
failed to conciliate. The medicine of
coercion eipscially bad been the med
icine continually applied in increasing
deses and with diminishing results.
,1. Parnellite cheers Here tbe,speaker
reviewed the hUtory of tie pa-t
in ai endeavor ti prove that
only a thorough measure which
would be sat sfaUoiy to Ireland was
sow feaiible. As regards the auto
nomy cf Ireland being a menace to
the unity of tbe Empire, he reminded
the Home that the came argument
was employed against Canadian in
dependence. When it was decided to
concede home rule to Canada, Canada
was in tbe precise temper attributed to
Ireland to-day. Canada did not get
home rule because she was loyal and
friendly. She was now loyal and
friendly because she got home rule.
'Irish cheers. He (Gladstone) sat in
THI WHOLB CANADIAN C )NTBOVERRV,
taking (8 a young man an active pirt
in the diicuwion. What wi s the na
ture of the Canadian debate? The
-case of C.nada was not rar.llel ti the
caBe of Ireland opposi ion cheers
not in every particn!ar eo the bill
oflered to Ireland is different in im
portant (lotah frjm tlm acts which
disposedof the cfe cf Ctrada. But,
although net parallel, tbeir poeitooB
ere ana'ojioii". What was the
isjue in the case ct C.n ida? Govern
ment from Downing s'i eat. Tfcese lew
words embrace the whole controverpy,
government from Downing street
meaning, ( f co'ir w, government from
Westminster. "Hear! Hoar!" Wbat
wae the cry of ihoee who reaibiei au
tonomy in (ansdt? It wns the cry
which has slept a long huip, acquiring
vigor fiom sleopinij. it was the cry
that the unityof lhe empire would be
endangered. In his opinion f lhe
relations of Canada and England
then, there was very great danger to
THE UNITY OF THE EMFIBB,
but it was the remedy for the mis
chief, not the mischief itself, which
was regarded as d&ngarons. Irish
cheets.1 In thi reepeei tbe cwtea of
Ireland and Canada are precisely par
allel. There is danger to the unity of
the empire in oar present relations
with Ireland. But the opponents of
the bill have applied the cry of danger
to the remedy instead of to the exist
ing mischief. Cheers In those
days the people cf, Canada were
habitually denounced in the
bouse as rebels. Prolonged gov
ernment and Parnellite enters.
Some cf thess si-called rebels were
Proies ants of English and Scotch
birth, but the majority were Catholics
of French extraction. Waa the cry
against them raised because they were
French extraction Ca'holici ? No, sir.
The English in Upper Caaada did ex
actly tie same thing. Both rebelled.
He (Gladstone) remembered O'Con
nell, in the coarse of tbe debate
on Caaada, in referring to the
.French Canadian leader, Pepineau.
eaying: "Xhis case is just tbe case of
Ireland, with this difference the
'Canadian agitator has 'O' at the end
of his name instead of at the begin
ning." laughter. Tbe Canadian
rebels were suppressed, but at the
. moment of military victory the politi
cal difficulty bigau, and the victors
were the vanquished. If we were the
military victois the Cacadiacs were
VICTORIOUS IN THE FIELD OF SEASON.
Here Mr. G!aJ;torje referred to the
significant expression of opinion that
had corns across the Atlantic, approv
ing the viral piiacinles in the bill.
Chte'sanddarieive cries. He asked
that the gentlemen who appeared to
think that these manifestations of the
opinion of America were worthless

Many membora were not even
sati fisd with the consent of Ire
land. Boides tbe general const'
tut'onal otj action, there exeted re
gret that tbere would cease to be
symbolical representation of the unity
rf the empire through the absence cf
Irish members. Now. histcrv ba
shown ns that in foreign, cr what he
preferred to call over sea affairs, the
Irish people do not tttnd in the earn
relation as the people of Enrlaad and
Scotland. Hear, hear, ana cries of
"oh." It is a wonder that in
a country with woes so great and
wboje bopea have so often been
doomed ti disappointment the mind
of the people should be eon fined to
tbe position cf tbeir own country?
An rs.'eotial principle to the Irish peo
ple has become the control of tbeir
own affairs. Still, the bill provides
that Ireland shall not bo
EXCLUDED FBOM IMPERIAL AFFAIRS.
Clause 29 provides for a recall ot
representatives in both bouses of tue
Irish Parliament bef ore tbe Parliament
can proceed to the alteration of a stat
ute upon which the two countries do
not agree. Another claase provides
that on certain conditions the Irish
assembly may vote earns of money for
purposes excluded from its ordinary
coguizince. He trusted that should
Great B'itain be involved in a great
war, wnen Ireland would be exposed
to the eommon danger, the Irish
assembly would raspond to a mes
sige from the down by voting
money to proeecnte the war. Op
position laughter. Though abiding
in tbe principle that the Irish mem
bers should not sit in the Imperial
Parliament, the government was will
ing to meet the difficulty by provid
ing that when it was proposed to alter
tho taxation of Ireland ralating to tbe
customs and excise duties, lush mem
bers would be enabled to appear in
Parliament and share in the debate.
Cries of hear, hear. Tbe govern
ment was also willing to appoint a
joint commission from tbe English
and Irish Parliaments,, which
would meet from time to time
to consider same questions of
Impsilal or common interest.
bo great question sucb as succession
to tbe crown ought to fall nnder the
di'CUBuioa of this sewnd .ry authority,
bat many qnes ions, such as treaties cf
commerce, might require direct com
munication between both Parliaments.
He would therefore!prop6,onbthaif
of tbe government, Borne plun of the
Kind, tie proceeded to explain that
tbe government remained undecided
as to the (ooditiens under which Ir sh
me in be g of an Irish commiwirn
should appear in the Imperial Parlia
ment, 'lbs go vercmas. tU4 not con.
eider this to be a via! point.. In di s
cpirion, if tbe Irish members came
back in any numbers it mould be
neceassry to devise a
NEW SYSTEM OF ELECTION.
He would certainly have no jealousy
of the Irish member. If they should
reappear in their force he would
rather have them amply than scantily
and ira'ously treated. .In conclusion,
ha declared that the main object of
tbe bill waa to abolish, root and
branch, the discontent prevailing in
Ireland, and to restore social order by
the removal, not merely of tbe symp
toms, but of the cause of all that dis
count. If the opi onents of the
bl'l had an alternative po'icy,
what was it? He asked if Lord
RindolphChnichlll should undertake
tbe task of settling Ireland, what did
he mean to do? Wax bis plan that
firoposad by the loyalists in Belfast
ast November? The English Gov
ernment might be daring, but not so
daring as to undertake the reconstruc
tion of the Irish government without
touching the legislative difficulty. If
Lorn Hattington had a plan, let him
declare it. He- appealed to Lord
Harrington (o state his solution of
the Irish problem. They bad reached
a criHis in the history cf the
nation. The pa'h cf boldness wps tbe
enly path of safety. Cheers. All
men ought to know their own mind
and ought to tell it. The f.ta of Ire
land could not be cent in the lottery
of politics. Parnellite chcera. Ha
lad been told tl at he was Peering
Ireland to certain ruin. Let the op
ponents show a way to escape. LVt
Lord Hartingto, in moving the re
jection of the bill, trace a visible or a
ral able read through tho da.kneRS.
Uneere. 'The members of the Llonce
of Commons have before them a gra.
opportunity to close a strife of 110 J
years, aye, of knitting by bonds firmer
and higher in character the hearts
and affections of the Irish people, and
of cementing the noble fabric of the
British naiion." Loud and prolonged
LORD IIABTINQTON'S SPEECH.
Mr. Gladstone wai followed by Lord
Hartingtor, wbo on rising was greeted
with cheer. He asked if Mr. Parnell
had ever stopped short of asking for
complete independence and the restor
ation of Iieland to her place among
the nations of the world. - He (Hat
ington) feared that the Premier had
settled tbe matter without mature
consideration. With reference to
submitting an alternative meas
ure, he failed to remember a
single instance in which Mr. Glad
stone bad taken the course he now
asked the dissentionista to take, who
were unprepared to suggest in what
direction tbe measure before the
House could be immediately revised.
He believed that tbe concession made
to-night would not meet with tbe de
mand of Mr. Chamberlain. In con
clusion be moved that the bill be read
six months hence.
The debate adjourned until Thurs
day. THE OUTLOOK.
The supporters of the bill are very
discontented at the proepect of tbe
lengtbjof debate nnder Mr.Gladstone s
refusal to give it day to day considera
tion. It is the opinion of t he lobby of
the House that, if defeated, Mr. Glad
stone wil rejign and not ask for tbe
dissolution of Parliament, and that tbe
Queen will summon Lord Hartington
to form a new Cabinet.

Fraada la Public Land.
Washimotow, May 10. The Com
missioner of the General Land Office,
in his response to the Senate resolu
tion calling for the number of spec
ial agents employed in his office, and
their du ies, says that if the increased
fo'ce recommended in bis annual re
port be granted, the entries suspended
by his order of April 3, 1885, can all
be investigated and disposed of in
about a year and a half. A large per
centage of these entries, he thinks,
are fraudulent. The proportion of
new cases tbat will require such in
vestigation will be much less than in
those previous to April 3, 1885, since
the order of suspension had the ef
fect to materially check the
making or completion of fraudu
lent entries, it was the ease
withjwhich frauds could be perpetrated
under existing laws, and the immu
nity offered by a hasty issue of pa
tents, he savs, that encouraged the
making of fictitious and fraudulent
entries. The cer ainty of a thorough
investigation would restrain such prac
tices, but great fraud must inevitably
exist so long as the opportunity of
fraud is preserved in the laws and so
long as it is hoped by the procurers
and promo'ers of fraud that examina
tions may be impeded or suppres ed.

The Senate committee learned
