Gladstone on the Crimes it ill.
In theUritish Houseof Commons laatnight,
on a motion made for the third reading of
tho crime? bill, Mr. GladstODO, amid pro?
longed cheer?, made :i counter motion that
the bill be read a third time that day three
months. Mr. Gladstone said the bill was
the conservative alternative to home rule,
and, therefore, bore a different aspect from
uny ordinary coercion bill. The old coer?
cion measures had been aimed at crime only,
but this new one, pacing beyond crime,
aimed at societies. Further, the bill bad
been brought in without any foundation,
such as underlay all former coercion bills,
based on tho existence of exceptional crime.
Mr. J'.alfour had disregarded all precedents
requiring that the introduction of coercion
measures bo prefaced by a statement of ex?
ceptional crime. Mr. Gladstone maintained
that the increase of crimo in lSStl over IfvS.",,
in view of the agricultural distress in Ire
laud, whs exceedingly small. Comparing
the officials of tho lory government in pow?
er iu Ireland in 1SS5 with those in power
tho first live mouth.; in 18S7 there was
a marked decrease in the amount of
agrarian crime. Vet in 1SS"> they had
refrained from introducing a coercive
measure from motives of policy. A
c imparison of past and present statistics
afforded no shadow of justification for the
present measure. Another contrast was that
past Parliaments had been nearly unani?
mous in assenting to coercion, while this hill
was opposed by a large majority in the
House and by a majority ol the people of
I tho country?a majority that was not likely
to diminish. [Cheers.] If Parliament, re?
tained any regard for ttir; traditions of lib?
erty or of party usages the measure would
be abandoned. What could they urge to
warrant such invasion Of the people's liber?
ties? While resenting tho imputation that
the liberals had done the same thing he
would admit that, past mtasure? had been
failures. Among the dilierences between
the past and the present was the extraordi?
nary proposal making the viceroy master of
the whole law and right of arsociation. In
tin present century such a proposal was an
outrage upon every: principle of public duty.
."Moreover, new offenses were created under
the measure. The attorney general for Ire?
land had admitted, and :i was too iate to
deny, that the bill aimed at tho suppression
of exclusive dealing. That was far more
pardonable in the weak ana poo; than the
rich and powerful, hut it was the exclusive
dealing of the poor against the strong
at which ih<> bill aimed. If a new
crime were created the measure for
its suppression should operate impar?
tially. Cheers.] The government did not
dare to lift n linger in defense of the sugges?
tion that it apply to England a provision
Buch as it was forcing upon Ireland. He
contended that the government was bound
to extend to the occupiers of land in Ire?
land ii perfect equality with English trades
unions as regards tho rights and practices
enjoyed by the latter, among which Combi?
nation and exclusive dealing w?re sanction?
ed. A* the bill stood, if an Irishman join
mi association it was for Mr. Balfour to say
whether or not he became a criminal by the
act. In condiision Mr. Gladstone eaid that
Ireland, after seventy years of suppression
and wrong, was in a state of misery and
wretchedness. In the whole British empire,
he said, there was no; a square yard of land
which England heldby forcealone,excepting
in Ireland, where force was employed. Ire
hind was hold by mastery, but the govern?
ment refused to learn that mastery involved
responsibility. ; Cries of "Hear," "Hear."[
They knew thai the whole literature* of the
world was against them. (Cries of "Xo."j
Ho challenged the government to mention
tiny authority who bad roviewed the rela?
tions between England and Ireland with?
out arriving at a home rule solu- J
tion. t Cheers. | The tories professed to!
be fighting for the union of the
empire, a fight in which the liberals
joined. The liberals held that the charge of
disunion was ridiculous. It was evident
that the present state of affairs could not
last long, as Mr. Gladstone believed that
every day tended to bring the tories nearer
their doom. Mr. Gladstone then moved for
the rejection of the bill, amid cheers from
the liberal and Parnellite benches.
Mr. Ealfour, replying to Mr. Gladstone,
lirsc referred to the charge that the govern?
ment had brought the bill as an alternative
to Mr. Gladstone's homo rule proposals. If
that was the care, he said, he felt justified in
saying that it was sufficient to recommend
the*measure to the acceptance of the House.
The government was mainly justified in in?
troducing its proposals by the stato of social
tyranny which had recently been created in
Ireland, tyranny that attacked the rights
and liberties of minorities and most of those
elementary principles, without which a
country could never be prosperous. He
contended that crime was worse now in
Ireland than in 1S70, when Mr. Gladstone
promoted coercion. He taunted Mr. Glad?
stone with having introduced, in 1SS1, an
arbitrary coercive measure which enabled
the Irish chief secretary to imprison
anybody at will. He ridiculed the
comparison that had been made t>e
tween trades unions and societies
whose object was the dismembermeut
of the empire, and which were sup?
ported by foreigners. Tho trades unions
might well be indignant at a comparison of
their honest, peaceful efforts with those of
boycotting and political conspirators. Mr.
Gladstone had made an insidious and inac?
curate statement regarding this year's
?crimes in Ireland. Earl; in ilie year'here
was a visible improvement, but at the lost
quarter sessions there were evidences of a
i relapse. In June sixty two serious ciitnes
I were committed?ten above the average of
I the previous eighteen months.
Mr. Gladstone's speech, though inevitably
I traveliug over old ground, whs a remarks
! bly close :ird lucid present at Ton of the ar?
guments against the bill. The style in
! which it was delivered was oatchingly an?
imated, and at times the whole honse was
roused with enthusiasm.
Mr. Wm. O'Brien's reappearance in the
house was greeted with cheers.
The Farneilites do not intend to prolong
the debate on tbe crime-* bill to-day. The
government will have the usual majority.
Mr. Wm. O'Brien praised Mr. Gladstone's
brave opposition to the bill. Mr. Gladstone,
he said, was the greatest conqueror of Ire?
land. While other? conquered by the
mighl of arms, Gladstone conquered 1>5'
mere generosity of soul.
After Maj. Sanderson ond Attorney Gen?
eral Webster had replied on behalf of the
government the debate was adjourned.
