Major Geneial Julius 11. Stall. An
amusing scene occulted In the effoits
of memheis to tet their bills thiough.

The stiuggle was earnest and noisy,
and the few memheis lemalning on the

energetic associates. The hub-bub was
so gieat that pioceedings had to lie sus

Chuliman Ileudeihon explained that
in his loeoijnltlun of memheis he was
endeavoilng to lollow the suggestions
of the committee on Invalid pensions,
so as to i each some eases that demand
ed Immediate action and at the same
time to do what he conceived to be laii
to the Deinociatlc side of the house.
Mr. Steele Well the bill I wanted to
call up wus foi the benefit of a wlduw
entliely helpless and destitute.

London, Jan. 19 In the house of
commons today Sli William Hai court
in lefeiilng to the queen's speech, said
the most satlslactoi) statement con
tained In It was the iefeience made to
the leliltions between Cleat Biitaln
and the United SUitcs. He heai tlly
congiatuhited the government upon
the conclusion ot the dlftotences le
gauling Venezuela, and gave them un
stinted pialse for the geneial aibitia
tlon tieaty, which was lecently signed
by tlie Biltlsh ambassador at Washing
ton and the Ameiiciin secretary ot
Theie could be no better ce'ehiatlon
of the sixtieth year of her majesty's
lelgn thnn that her government should
he among the Hist of the nations to sel
the example of settling difleiences by
aibltiatlon He denounced the Nile
campaign and asked the government
to justify their Egyptian policy. In
legale! to Ainienia, he wus glad to heai
that the government had abandoned
hostility to Bussla in the matter.
Halted States Ambassador Bayaid
and Mis. Bayaid occupied seats In the
house of lot ds.
After the loul chancellor, Loul Salis
bury, had tend the queen's speech
li om the tin one, the customaiy nd
diess In leply to the speech was moved
by tile Muiqllls of Bath, who was at
tlted In the unlfoim of an olllcer of
the Yoemen of the Cluauls. The mo
tion was seconded by Loul Kenyon
The Kail ot Klnibei ley, who was )es
teuluy chosen us the leadei ol the Lib
erals In the house of louls, In the place
ol Loul Bosebery, leslgned, snld he
deeply legietted that Loul Bosbeiy was
no longer the leader of the Lllieinl
p.uty. Speaking on the matteis he tou
gi.itulated Loul Sallsbtny upon the
success ot his negotiations with the
I'nlteil States. In legal d to Tuikey he
said he lelt Impelled to ask If the tteat)
ol Bellln was dead.
Pi line Minlstei Salisbury also legiet
ted Loul Bosebeiy's letilement He
then pioceeded to defend the consistent
policy of the Consei vatlves. The gov
ernment, he dc fluted, hud not initiated
the antl-Busslan policy of 1S7S. It was
the Cilincan war that initiated It, but
the Boeis weie now genelully aglecd
that If ufoinis weie not gi anted In
Aimoula a material piessuie would be
applied to the Sultan hj the le.st of Ku
Uipe. Theie weie but slightly dlffeiellt
windings, he said, In the communica
tions ot the poweis In legard to lite way
it should be done, hut all of them weie
convlnied that unless the Sultan should
In t induce genuine and otfei the lefoims,
the vvoist must tollow.
In legal (1 to the tieaty of ai bltiatlon
just concluded with the I'nited States,
he said, he could not yet speak fully
on the subject because the agieeinent
hud not been i milled. Still, he would
suv that the people must not think that
they weie living in the mlllenlal dispen
sation. He hoped, however, that something
would be done lo diminish the ihk of
war. He would nut su that the tieut)
would lemove the gieatest i isks of win,
or lesluilu n Napoleon or a Bismaick,
but tlie policy with the United States
wan full and definite in ease of aniall
dlffei elites, which sometimes eMiggei
ated, caused enmity. The lorniatlon of
a tillniiial of aibltiatlon would settle
these difleiences, which would prevent
such, and stop the two nutluns wliu un
deislood e.u h olliei so well that unless
they aie ti leads the) aie almost eeit.iln
to be enemies.
