Friends Present a Solid Front on the
First Important Test.
London, Aug. 11 The Tory Govern
taent of Great Britain and Ireland la at an
end, for a time at least. ' Only a few
formalities are now necessary before Glad
stone and his associates assume control.
The division in the House of Commons to
night on the motion of Mr. Herbert Henry
Asquith, Liberal member for the east di
vision of Fifeshire, of "No confidence' in
the Government was carried by a vote of 350
.This majority of 40 is the fall strength of
the opposition to Salisbury and coercion,
and gives assurance that the "Grand Old
Man" will take up the reins with a re
markably harmonions coalition at his back.
The Tory leaders who hoped for dissensions
even before the first test were again doomed
to disappointment. This did not prevent
the Unionists from entering a most em
phatic protest before relinquishing their
cherished power. The principal speech of
the session was made by Joseph Chamber
lain, the chief; of the dissentient Liberals.
Great Interest In the Test.
The House was packed when Parliament
assembled this afternoon. Every seat was
taken, and crowds were standing on the
, floor and in the gangways. Among the dis-,
tinguished spectators wer the Earl of Ca-
j dogan, Lord Knutsford, the Prince of Teck,
i the Dnke of Devonshire, Prince Hatzfeldt,
) the German Ambassador, Minister Lincoln
I and other members of the diplomatic corps.
' 'When Mr. Gladstone appeared he was
cheered enthusiastically. Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain, who wore an orchid in addi
tion to his usual garb, was also cheered fes
he proceeded to his seat, and more or less
applause greeted each notable from his par
tisans. "When the debate on the address in reply
to the Queen's speech was resumed, 'Mr.
Chamberlain took the floor. He said that
the Liberal "Unionists' influence was not
measured by their numbers. In Parlia
ment they remained an undoubted political
foice, nor lessened by their opponents call
ing them political apostates or an ill-starred
He agreed that the issue between the
Unionists and Home Rulers had been de
cided for a time by the country, but when
Mr. Gladstone went on to say that it was
irrelevant to do anything more than expel
the Government without asking what would
follow, he must protest. The coming Gov
ernment had been rightly described as a
nebular hypothesis. It was so for the
A Charge of Inconsistency Entered.
Mr. Gladstone was not consistent, for
while refusing to explain his policy he gave
answers in writing to Mr. Justin Mc
Carthy's questions. "Was it not hard meas
ures when 315 Unionists must not ask a
single question and the Nationalists could
ask five and get civil answers to them.
Nowadays powerful telescopes forced
nebular bodies to disclose their secrets and
resolved them into component atoms. Mr.
McCarthy must have the most powerful of
these instruments. Mr. Redmond must
wish to borrow it Laughter
The present situation was unparalleled In
English political history. Hitherto a vote
oi want ot confidence in the Government
implied confidence in the party re
placing them. The present opposition, if
intact, could put the Government in a
minority of 40, but the new Government
might find itself in a minority of 100 at al
most the first breath of its existence. It
was a strange position, so the opposition
strove to stifle debate.
Anxions .About the Foreign Policy.
"What was the foreign power of the in
coming Government? Parliament heard
nothing on that subject The speeches of
Messrs. Gladstone and Morley sometime ago
had led many at home and abroad to believe
that they designed an early evacuation of
Egypt while they disapproved the policy of
the Triple Alliance.
.Mr. Morley (interrupting) I never
touched the question of Triple Alliance.
Mr. Chamberlain said that the position of
Italy toward the allies had formed an im
portant part of the speech of Mr. Morley.
Continuing, he said he hoped that Lord
Boseberry would be the new Foreign Minis
ter. People had confidence in his policy,
because it was opposed to that of Mr. Glad
stone and Mr. Morley. Cheers. If Lord
Boseberry should not be the new Foreign
Minister, some morning they would awake
to find preparations being made to evacuate
Egypt, on which subject the opinion of the
House had never been taken. He did not
believe the democracy of the country was in
favor of Mr. Gladstone's and Mr. Morley 's
policy of scuttling. Hear, hear. But
that policy might be carried out during the
recess, to the gross injury of imperial in
terests, while the voice of Parliament could
not be heard.
A Conspiracy of Silence.
Not alone on foreign but also on many
bnhie questions the Liberal sections main
tained a conspiracy of silence, and he did
not much wonder at it If Mr. Gladstone
tried to satisfy the demands of the different
sections of the party besides the Irish mem
bers, the assurances given one section might
displease another, and the displeasure of
-one section might be fatal to the Gladstone
Government Hear, hear.
Tho taciturnity of two of the sections
was exo ptionslly strange.
Therejhad been I

disestablishment of the Church. They
seemed content to postpone the realization
of the Welsh desires, but insisted that dis

the Liberal programme. But they had been

that the question must be excluded if it in
the slightest degree diverted attention from
All the Nationalists concurred that the
Irish question must dominate to the exclu
sion of British reforms. Hear, bear. The
prospect of "Welsh disestablishment being
thrust into the background was not prom
ising. Another set of-members professed
to specially represent a work day of eight
hours for miners. Experience ought to
have convinced them of the virtue of ex
erting some pressure; yet they were also

laughter, and so kept silent Mr. Glad
stone had recently described Ireland as the
Old Man of the Sea on the back oi Sinbad.
The story told them that the way the Old
Man was got rid ofwas that Sinbad made
him drunk and then brcke in his head with
a stone. Laughter. That was a process
which might threaten the Irish party with
Mr. Labouchere and Sir George Trevelyan
in power. Hear, hear.
How did the Irish view the prospect?
Was the House not entitled to ask about
the form of Irish home rule. "Was it to be
a federal, colonial or a gas and water Parlia
ment? How was the supremacy of the Im
perial Parliament to be maintained? They
had a right to get information on these mat
ters before separating for five months. Here
Mr. Chamberlain cited the declarations of
Liberal leaders for the'supremacy of the
Imperial Parliament, comparing these
declarations with the demands of Mr. Bed
mond for complete independence in all Irish
affairs. It was remarkable, he said, that
these demands were received with solemn
silence by the Liberals above the gangway.
Conservative cheers. '
The Question or a Teto Power.
Mr. Redmond had said that there must
be no English veto; that if there was any
veto at all it must be exercised on the ad
vice of Irish Minister. Mr. Redmond had
also, claimed for Ireland full control of the
land, police and judiciary just .the points
on which controversy would arise in the
House of Commons. Xet Mr. Gladstone
had passed the question by without making
the slightest allusion to them. If he had
spoken out he could only have refused
those demands. Cheers.
If Mr. Gladstone kept faith with the
Irish members he would offend England; it
he kept faith with England he would offend
Ireland. The singularity of the position
was that if they turned the Government
out they did not know that the coming Gov
ernment could command a majority .of the
House, and had no opportunity of learning
the opinions of the coming Government.
They had been told that the policy of the
Irish party was to knock one Government
out after another. If so, how could the
Queen's Government be carried on? Hear,
hear.' How long was thiB state of things to
last? Hear, hear. How long were ducks
and drakes to be made of British legisla
tion? The task that the opposition had un
dertaken was of herculean proportions.
Theywere going to try to pull the union to
pieces to construct a constitution
Two Absolute Essential Conditions.
The were two conditions absolutely es
sential for such a task. First they must
agree among themselves; next they must
rely upon the moderation of their. Irish
allies. They could, however, neither effect
an agreement .among their own party nor
place reliance on the Irish members. Con
servative cheers. Divided among them
selves, those they' sought to benefit began
by dictating to them. Cheers. He asked
the wisest among the opposition to give the
matter serions reconsideration. Oh, oh.
To the others he did not speak. He asked
them to consider that what at all times had
been a difficult question the supremacy of
the Imperial Parliament had now become
impossible. Hear, hear. They could not
conceal irom themselves the fact that they
would be unable to fulfil the expectations
which they had excited; that their efforts
were doomed beforehand to inevitable
failure. Prolonged cheering.
Rt Hon. Sir John Lubbock, Liberal
Unionist member tor the London Univers
ity, said he foresaw constant conflicts in the
Irish Imperial Parliaments. The powers
now claimed on behalf of Ireland would
make her independent of Great Britain in
all fiscal matters, and would work injury to
Gladstone Answers One Objection.
Rt Hon. Sir Henry James, Q. C,
Liberal Unionist member for the Bury
division of Lancashire, said that there was
no precedent to sustain the incoming Gov
ernment in withholding information as to
the policy they intended to pursue!
Mr. Gladstone interposing, said there was
a precedent in the course pursued by the
Government which assumed power in 1841.
Sir Henry, continuing, said that there
had been a full debate on Lord Melbourne's
future policy. Conservative cheers. He
supposed that Mr. Asquith had been se
lected to move' the amendment to the ad
dress because he had formerly demanded
that Mr. Gladstone reveal his policy. In
defending the Unionists against the charge
of apostacy Sir Henry asked whether Mr.
Asquith believed that Bright and Villlers
had acted according to any but conscientious
convictions. In.common fairness to their
constituents they ought to know the pro
visions of the home rule bill. Mr. Glad
stone himself had taught them that it would
be dangerous, perhaps destructive, to rely
on the Irish vote, yet his majority was

Mr. Chaplin resumed his seat, but the
Speaker called for order and, recalled Mr.
Chaplin. The latter in his remarks endeav
ored to show from past speeches of Mr.
Gladstone that the task of preserving the
supremacy of Parliament and vet giving Ire
land control of her own affairs was illusory J
were continually interrupted by ironical
Irish cheers and renewed cries of
"Divide," and the J Speaker was again
obliged to "beg a patient hearing "for Mr.
Chaplin. The House then remained) quiet
until Mr. Chaplin said that the House of
Lords would survive the attacks of the
Morley crew, which observation caused an
other uproar, Iastiug several minutes and
drowning Mr. Chaplin's remarks. "When
quiet was restored Mr. Chaplin offered to
lay a sporting wager that the new Govern
ment would not survive an ordinary session,
which offer caused the House to break into
shouts of laughter.
Presently a friend placed a fresh glass of
water on a box where Mr. Chaplin's notes
lay and accidentally scattered the papers.
The whole assembly joined the Irish in
screams of laughter over Mr. Chaplin's dis
comfiture. Mr. Chaplin himself complained
that such a reoeption had never before been
accorded a responsible Minister.
The Crowning Test of Strength,
The Speaker then rose to put the ques
tion on Mr. Asquith's motion and was'
answered with a thunderous volume ot ayes
and noes from the respective sides of the
House. The strangers having withdrawn

Speaker repeated the usual formula of put- J

with sustained and vehement replies.
The House divided at midnight. "When
Mr. Gladstone returned from the lobby the
whole Liberal party ro?e and cheered him.
The tellers appeared at 12:25 a. M. with the
paper containing the numbers showing the
result of the division and handed the paper
to Arnold Morley, the Literal whip. This
was the signal for a volley of Liberal cheers
andTrish shouts of "Mitchelstown," "down
with Balrourism." etc., andi it was
some time before Mr., Morley was
able to announce the figures. The
result annonnced was: For the motion,
350; against, 310. There was a fresh dis
play of enthusiasm.
The noise having subsided Mr. Balfour
and the whole body of Conservatives rose,
and amid prolonged acclaims,' Mr. Balfour
moved that the House adjourn till

Mr. Chamberlain spoke. But for some
minor members of the opposition seizing a
chance to get a hearing the House would
have divided before the dinner hour. "With
stolid patience and devoid of every appear
ance of excitement the House awaited the
decisive moment of the division.
Features of the Night.
The gravity of the occasion was seen in
the crowds waiting in the palace yard till
East midnight, the groups filling the lob
ies and packed in the galleries within the
house. For the first time since the night
in I860, when Mr. Gladstone first in
troduced home rule, chairs had to
be brought in to seat the members
blocked out of the galleries. For
the first time in the history of the British
Parliaments did the members muster their
full strength within ten. The peers' gallery
was well occupied. The diplomatic gallery
was so full that Messrs. Lincoln, the Amer
ican Minister, and Hatsfeldt, the German
Ambassador, who arrived late, found seats
with some difficulty.
As the night wore on. members got rest
less and interrupted every speaker with
cries of "Divide, divide." They wandered
wearily in and out of the house, and sent
protests to the whios for a vo e
without delay. But the" whips' difficulty
was that there were several
unable to arrive till It o'clock and the
speeches had to be kept going under mutual

men beguiled the tedium by speculating on

At midnight every possible vote was
within the call of the whips, and the voting
commenced. The tellers for the amend

Tom Burke Jumps From a Station Honse
Window and Drives Kapldly Away.
Chicago, Aug. 1L SpMial' Thomas
Burke, one of the most desperate criminals
in Hyde Park, made a daring and successful
escape from the police station this morning.
He jumped from a second-story window af
ter prying off an iron bar, dropped 20 feet,
was apparently uninjured, stole a horse and
buggy belonging to S. Bumpus, of Armour
avenue, and drove rapidly away. It the
score of officers on his trail come up with
him there will be a bloody encounter.
Burke, as soon as he struck" the ground,
rushed to the buggy, jumped in and lashed
the horse into a run.
Burke has long been a familiar character
in criminal circles. There are 20 charees of
burglary against the man, and he has" long
been wanted. The most serious charge is
the suggestion that he knows something
about the murder of Saloonkeeper Dillon,
which occurred 18 months ago.

yesterday afternoon. He then went to
labor headquarters and participated in the
special meeting of the Advisory Board.
The object of the meeting was to perfect
arrangements for' a picnio in aid of, the
strikers. Directly the meeting was over,
O'Donnell returned to his home and re
mained there until evening, when he at
tended the regular meeting ot the Advisory

made this statement to.the newspaper men:

A special meeting of the Advisory Board
is called for 10 o'clock this morning. The
main object of this meeting is to receive
Mr. Gompers aud the other members ot the
Federation of Labor delegation.
"William A. Carnejr, the First Vice Presi
dent of the First district of the Amalga
mated -Association. .a!id" member of the
.General Executive Committee of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, was in Home
stead yesterday, preparing for the quarterly
meeting of the Federation Council.
To Prepare a Plan of Defense.
The meeting was scheduled for New
York, but owing to existing circumstances
will convene in Homestead. The following
gentlemen are members of the council:
Samuel Gompers, President of the Ameri
can Federation of Labor and representative
of the Cigarmakers' International Union;
Christopher Evans, of the United Wire
workers; William Lennon, of the Tailors'
and Culters',Union; P. J. McGuire, of : the
carpenters ana joiners union, and Mr.
Carney. The council will meet to-day at
the labor headquarters in Homestead.
Last night in conversation with a Dis
patch reporter Mr. Carney said: "A boy
cott on Carnegie is to be considered, and in
terested in that are 84,000 carpenters, 100,
000 men engaged in bridge building and
the operatives in ship yards where armor
plate is made. "We are willing to
bring about any kind of honorable
settlement, if it is possible. But if Messrs.
Frick, Lovejoy and associates are de
termined on maintaining an aggressive dis
position toward us and organized labor
generally, there is no alternative left after
having recourse to every other honorable
method to bring about a fair adjustment of
the difficulty but to meet them with their
own weapons, feeling confident that with
the resources! behind us we must assuredly
come out victors."
Contributions From.a Million Men.
."What are the resources?"
"Now," replied Mr. Carney, "that a sat
isfactory adjustment of the bar 'iron scale
obtains, and every member of the' Amal
gamated Association who will go to work
in the very near luture has already inti
mated his intention of subscribing 10 per
cent of his wages, irrespective of whether
they are 51 50 or $10 per day to the' Home
stead relief fund, a substantial revenue
from this source alone ram be expected. In
the aggregate this would mean at the
very least 9M,)w every two weeks, but
I am going below in order not to be
guilty of exaggeration. In the first or
Pittsburg division there are 9,000 members;
in the second, or Ohio Valley, there are
8,000; in the fourth, the Chicago district,
6,000, and in the fifth, St Louis, and the
sixth, 3,000. .In addition to that will
come the assessment, which will be
levied on the American Federation of La
bor, and the contributions from the Knights
of Labor, which has already demonstrated
its co-operation, not by resolutions, but by
check. The law of the Federation
provide that an assessment of 2 cents
per week can be levied on mem
bers affiliated during the period
of five weeks for the assistance of any union
engaged in a legalized conflict, and the
assessment Is subject to renewal at the
direction of the President of the Federation.
This means, at any rate, 10 cents per head,
for five weeks on almost 1,000,000 men." '

The first suit in the local courts growing out
of the riot at Homestead on July 6 was be

No. 4 by M. W. Collett and W. W, Carr,
attorneys for William B. Lelar, against
Bobert A. Pinkerton and William. A.
Pinkerton, trading as Pinkerton's National
In his statement of claim Mr. Lelar says
he was employed by the Pinkertons as a
watchman at certain buildings in the State
of New York, to which the defendants
"then and there falsely and deceitfully pre
tended to be conducting the plaintiffj but
of the precise location of which the plaintiff
was not informed by the Pinkertons." Then
follows the account of the Pinkertons'
famous fight with the rioters from the
barcres at Homestead on July 6.
Mr. Lelar fell into the hands of the mob,'
was kicked and beaten with clubs, sticks
and stones and seriously injured. As the
result of Mr. Lelar being forced to run the
gauntlet through the mob he will be pre
vented from permanently undertaking the
severe manual labor to which he has been
accustomed and for which he is only fitted
as a means of livelihood. Twenty thousand
dollars damages are claimed.

Asbuby Paek, N. J., Aug. 11. The
story of the mental condition of Harry Ker
nell, the Irish comedian, as published ex
clusively in this morning's Dispatch,
aroused much comment among his friends
and neighbors in this city, where he has
made his home for the last four years. A
Dispatch reporter who called this evening
at the actor's pretty cottage in West Asbury
Park found that Mr. Kernell had already
The reporter was. shown to Mr. Kernell's
bedroom. Harry seemed to divine the
newspaper man's mission, and without a
word of greeting asked: "Do my eyes look
sunken? Are my cheeks fallen awav?"
The actor went on then in a ramblingin
coherent way t6 speak of the story in The
Dispatch and of many other things not
related to it at all. During the conversa
tion he said:
I know where this story comes from.
William A. Brady, the manager of Jim Cor
bett, the pugilist who Is to fight Sullivan. Is
responsible for all of it He is jealous be
cause I have repeatedly claimed that Sulli
van will knock Corbett out without half

which he asked ine to show Corbett. It
read thus: "Friend Corbett, I am sorry, bnt
I shall have to knocK you out in two
rounds." I showed the dispatch to Brady,
and since that time he has been sore against
Kernell's Contempt for Corbett.
Did you ever see CorbettT Why his
shoulders are only that broad (here Kernell
spread out his arms, showing the distance),
and his arms are too short to reach the big
fellow. I have offered to bet 150 to $10 that
Corbett will not bo In at alt Why, Sullivan
came down and spent three days with me
the latter part of March", and when Comett
-saw him on the street be Jumped on an elec
tric car and made off.
This last story is manifestly inaccurate,
as Corbett did not come here until near the
end of June. Kernell went on then to
speak of his failure to appear at the benefit
performance given in the Asbury Park
Auditorium for tHe Catholic Church of this
place. He said:
I exDected to take part, and sent my
music to the leader of the orchestra, but late
in the afternoon I received a telegram say
ing that my wife, Qaeenie Vassar, who is
now playing in "A Trip to Chinatown" at
the Madison Sauare Theater, was very sick
and was not expected to live. Before leav
ing for New York I explained the situation
to the managers of the entertainment, and I
thought they understood it.
Then the comedian broke off again and re
peated the expression of his contempt for
Corbett aa a fighter when compared: with
Sullivan. In answer to a question he said
he and his wife had patched np their do
mestic difficulties, and that she would come
down on Saturday to spend the rest of the
season here. He 'rambled off again then to
tell of a horse belonging to his brother John,
which, he said, had recently made a mile
and a quarter in three minutes.
The Comedian's Peculiar Plans.
In answer to a question, he said he in
tended to open the season with Tony Pastor
on August 27. He would play with him
two weeks, after which he would appear in
the London Theater and then at Howard's
Theater in Boston. He declared he had
taken his money from the bank and added
that he was worth 84,000, all of which he
made on the road. Time and time again
during the conversation he referred to Sul
livan's prowess and Corbett's poor show.
Several theatrical managers who were
asked about Kernell's alleged break-down
said they believed his mind to be unbal
anced. One of his friends in the profession
When Harry appeared at the Opera House
here about a month ago he was very shaky.
He forgot one ot nis little sketches that he
has been playing for four years, and It be

He has had considerable domestic trouble.

Park Opera House, said he did not believe
that Kernell was insane, and that the only
ground for the story was in his natural ec

Pall BrvEB, Mass., Aug, 1L The Bor.
den murder mystery, according to the belief
of the police, is solved. At 7:10 o'clock to
night Lizzie Borden was arrested, accused of
homicide. For one week the police and
other proper authorities have labored un
remittingly to fasten the crime upon the
perpetrator. They believe to-night that
they have done it
The Iron nerve 'and wonderful self-control
of the accused womac was never mora
clearly manifested than when the warrant
charging her with the murder of her
parents was read to her this
evening: This same woman, who
yesterday seemed about to give away
to her emotion, stood silent and motionless,
without a tremor, when Chief of Police
Hilliard entered the Borden mansion to
serve the warrant upon her. Chief Hilliard
tore open the envelope, unfolded the war
rant and began to read.
Lawyer Jennings, attorney for the sisters,
rose and said: "Mr. Marshal, I think my
client will waive the reading of the war
rant" The Girl ns Cool as a Cncnmber".
"Do you waive such reading?" asked
Chief Hilliard of Lizzie.
The woman was silent for a moment; then
she turned to her lawyer.
"Answer him," said he.
"I waive further reading on that paper,"
There was no false note in the voice, she
did not falter and there was no trace of
nervousness. She stood cold and silent for
a second. Only her lips trembled. Then
her jaws shut with a snap and she sank
back in her chair.
"You are placed in the hands of Matron
Bussell," said Marshal Hiliard, as he left the
room. Miss Emma Borden arose and turned
to her sister. For a minute they stood face
to face, then the olderwoman hurried down
stairs, followed by Lawyer Jennings
and Mrs. Brigham. Downstairs a great
throngs urged to and fro. They filled the
streets, choked into the hall, and even
forced their way into the main room of the
As Miss Emma Borden entered this roora
the crowd blocked the way ahead of her5r ,
She stopped and clutched the arm of Mrs.
Brigham, and her eyes were full of tears.
A reporter approached her and asked her
if she had anything to say.
The Sister Has Nothing to Say.
"What can I say?" she asked, plead
ingly. She entered her carriage with Law
yer Jennings and Mrs. Brigham, and was
driven direct to her home.
The day's proceedings began early this
morning with a conferenf e between Chief
of Police Hilliard, District Attorney
Knowlton and Medical Examiner Dolan.
This consultation lasted until after 10
'o'clock. Then Dr. Dolan hurriedly drove
The inquest began at 11 o'clock. The
first witness called was Mrs. Josephine
Tripp, from Westport She has known Lizzie
Borden from childhood. It is said she
confirmed the testimony already given by
other witnesses, and which shows that be
tween Lizzie and her parents there was a
feeling of unfriendliness, if not of dislike.
The next witness, Colonel Sawyer,
of this city, was one of the first
people to reach the house after
the discovery of the tragedy.
He was questioned first in regard to the
time. He was sure it was not later than
11:15 when Dr. Bowen came across the
street on the run.
No Love Lost Between Them.
To the next witness, Mrs. Perry Gifford,
the question of the hostile feeling said to
have existed between Lizzie Borden and the
murdered couple was put Her answer did
not contrdict those of previous witnesses.
Mrs. Giflbrd was followed by Mrs. Bertha
Whitehead, a sister of Mrs. Borden. Mrs.
Whitehead quoted specific instances where
the alleged hatred of Lizzie Borden for her
parents cropped out Mrs. Whitehead
explained, among other things, that
she formerly owned a house in conjunction
with another person. The other person
mortgaged her intetest and the mort
gage was foreclosed. 'Mr. Borden
bought it and gave it to Mrs.
Whitehead, and established her title
to the property. It was learned further
that Lizzie Borden is said to have objected
strongly to this, and to have blamed her
stepmother for persuading Mr. Borden to
part with some of his money.
Attempts to Purchase Poison.
After Mrs. Whitehead had testified, the
District Attorney and tHe Chief of Police
