IN Tun HOUSE OF COMMONS.
London, Feb. 22 In the house of
commons today Ml. Labouchcie, uidi
cal, moved to rdjouin with a view of
discussing tho situation In Ciete and
the motion was seconded by Mr. John
IJillon, tho leader of the Iiish national
pai ty .
Ripht Hon. A. J. Balfour, first loid
of the tieasuty, and the goernment
leader in the houe opposed the motion
and in the couise of his lomniks said
that theie was absolute unanimity
among the poweis to avoid war. When
the saw tho masteis of the colossal
in mies of Turope moved with the deep
est anxiety lest war should be tteclated,
MiiUy It was not for authorities upon
International affalis like Mr. Libou
ilieie and Dillon to say that such feai.s
weie illu'-oiy (Cries of "Oh," Oh").
The united foices weie leioonsible for
peace and the naval action which they
took at Canea yesteiday was foiced
upon them irr tho interests of peace.
Mr IJalfour expressed hope that debate
on Mi. Labouchere's motion would stop
whete It was, as It would not seie the
Intel ests of Europe, nor would It bene
fit Gieece oi Ciete.
Sir William Haicouit, leadet of the
opposition, said that the eountiy ought
to know whethei the go eminent weie
acting upon theli old foimula, the in
tegilty of the Ottoman emplie, and If
they were doing so, he protested
against It. To detach Ciete fiom the
lule of the Tuik wns the only policy
worthy of Gieat Biltain, and he hoped
that such a policy would be pmsued
The Liberals In the house of commons,
he declaied, would continue to iuotest
against any other policy until the
emancipation of Crete was accom
plished. To take up ai ins against a
people who weie rightly lighting foi
their freedom would not be toloiated
by the eountiy.
AS TO INSTIUJCTION.
II. Campbell-Banteiman, secretaiy
of the state for wai In the minlstiy of
Loid Hosebeny, asked that the house
be furnished with a copy of the In
structions which had been given to the
admlial commanding the Biitlsh wai
shlps nt Canea and said that the house
would be glad to know whether his in
stiuctlons bound him to do anything
which the conceited F-uiopean poweis
Mr. Balfour said he would Inquire
whether the institutions fot w aided to
the Biltlsh admiral could be pioduced
He would say, however, that the ad
mlial was not bound to act with the
other powers against his own judg
ment. Sir Chailes Dllke, LIbeial, said that
the Gieeks had leason to believe that
Gieat Biltain had twice led the con
cert of Furope to pieent them fiom
getting what they otherwise would
ha . obtained. The feeling of the coun
tiy, he declared, was almost unani
mously on the side of the Gieeks Mr
Lobucheie's motion was i ejected by a
vote of 213 to 123.

MEAD SHOT MRS. CHAPIN.
Examination Reveals Two Bullets in the
Woman's DrainEither Would
Have Killed Her.
Falls Village, Conn., Feb. 22 Devel
opments in the trasedy that shocked
the village on Satuiday moinlng sho.v
that Mis. Hattle Chapln, tho wlte of
the postmaster, Walter H. Chapln, was
shot by Chailes II. Mead, and that
Mead afterward committed suicide. At
first It was thought that she shot the
Coroner Higgins and Medical Exam
ine! Skiff today lound evidence that
Mead forced his way into the house
and muideied the woman.
There was one thing that showed
that Mead had used force. The- bed
room door was forced In. Tho bolt that
sinks In the hinges was broken and
some of the hlngeb weie out. Joseph,
Mis. Chapln's son, said the door was
all tight vvhm his mothei went to bed,
and she had locked it.
It Is posolble that the woman had let
Mead Into her house and went to her
loom pnd lockeil the dooi. It seems
stiange that tho door could have been
forced without awakening the boy.
Theie aie some who belle" that Mead
had tried to get money from the wo
man and became enraged when she
would not give him any. It is known
that he was without funds, for the
night befoie lie attempted to hot low
inonev fiom Medlcnl Examiner Skltf.
If he was after money he was piob
ably in the house for some time, as it
does not seem likely thnt he would call
em a woman to bonow late at night.
An act of Mead's points very stiong
ly to the shooting being piemedltated.
Ho spnko to Dr Skiff about life In
sui anee a few days ago and mentioned
a company that would pay, no mattei
how a poison died or how soon u'ter
the policy was taken out, even if sul
tiiie vas committed. He wanted to
bonow mpney of Dr. Skilt to take out
such a policy.
Theie was one icpoit that Mead at
tended a eountiy dance at Lakoville on
Filday night, where theie was plenty
of cidei biandy and a ilotous time
among the eountiy people. Di. Sklft
was unable to veiifv this statement,
but he said that when he examined
Mefd's bodv he lound Indications that
Mead had been dl inking.
Coioner Higgins tonight said that his
tlieoiy of the tiagedy was that Mead
hail gone to the house and had foieed
an entia'ice He mfy have attempted
to atsault the woman, and in an effott
to defend heiselt fiom Mead she took
the levolver and tiled to waul him
In the struggle that followed Mead
piobably succeeded In wrestinc the
weapon fiom her giasp and then shot
hoi twice. He then emptied the con
tents of one ehuinber into his own
Mis. Chapln had two bullets In her

her that she might have to use it some
time Mrs. Chapln kept the revolver
at the costoftlce. She had a smaller
one that she kept In her bedtoom, and
this was found. How Mead obtained
the levolver is a. mystery.
Some think that he asked Mrs. Ch ip
in for it and that she gave It to him
tempoiarlly, while others believe that
he took It from the postofflce without
her knowledge. When found on the
iloor, Mrs. Chapln wore nothing but a
gauze vest, a nlghtiobe, and a wrap
per of soft, figuied cloth. She had on
neither shoes nor stockings. Mead was
fully diessed, and his hat and overcoat
were In the sitting room All the doors

It is not known how- Mead entered
the house. Whether the woman let
him In, thinking It was her husband,
who occasionally came In on a late
tialn, or whether she opened the door
of her own free will, will piobably
never be known. Some think thnt he
obtained a key to the fiont door, but
no key was found upon him, or any
thing for that matter thnt could throw
any light upon the case
