Mr. Gladstone was greeted with cheers in
the British House of Commons yesterday
evening when he arose to move this resolu?
'"That an humble address be presented to
the Queen, representing that the Viceroy of
Ireland has proclaimed the National League
a dangerous association ; that no informa?
tion has been furnished to Parliament to
justify the proclamation, by virtue of which
her Majesty's subjects are to be rendered
liable to ho punished as criminals, without a
a judicial inquiry into the nature of their
acts, and that this House, in tho absence of
such information, prays that said proclama?
tion shall not continue in force as to the
association named and described therein."
Mr Gladstone said that the Irish Viceroy,
in declaring that the League had incited to
violence, must have acted on information,
but what was that information '? The Irish
chiefs bad a right to demand to know the
grounds on which the government had act?
ed. If the facts were withheld the opposi?
tion must forthwith urge three propositions
upon the House and the government.
First. That it w?a a slight, almost an out?
rage, on the dignity of Parliament to sup?
pose that it was to discharge tuch an im?
portant statutory duty without knowing the
Secondly. That it reduced to utter de?
struction und to an absurdity the main con?
tention that the government advanced dur?
ing the discussion of the Crimes act, that the
safeguard promised had proved a farce. He
asked what was the value or meaning of a
parliamentary approval ?iven in ignorance
of the facts?
Thirdly. What could the House think of
information that they must thus know would
not bear the light. ? [Cheers.]
Mr. Gladstone said he had always con?
tended that the government were legislating
.against combinations apart from crime and
now was the time for the government to
?show that he and his friends were wrong.
But the government shrank from the test,
and declined the challenge. They had sub?
stituted an arbitrary will for regular legal
action. This principle was a most danger?
ous and disgraceful one in any country, and
especially in Ireland. Law in Ireland was
still on trial. fV 'great misfortune was that
those who administered it, especially locally,
I were not in sympathy with the feelings of
the people. ^ The proclamation of the Na?
tional League was a near approach to a de?
claration of war on the Irish people. The
people of Ireland generally sympathized
with the League, because they believed that
it had been their salvation. |Paruelite
cheers.) Nobody did anything for the ten?
ants until the League was founded. The
government action absolutely excluded the
House from anything except an absurd aud
perfunctory operation in connection with
the great duty devolving upon it un?
der tho statute. Their cognizance of
this proclamation was reduced to a
mere farce. There would be no
jury, judge or resident magistrates
and no Parliament to control Ireland;
there would bo nothing but the absolute, un?
mitigated, arbitrary act of the Irish execu?
tive, which was necessarily partisan. He
hoped that the Irish would continne to bear
the pressure. They would not have to suf?
fer long. It was certain that they would not
obey the law through fear jcheers], butfrom
a strong, vivid, buoyant hope, which, even
at the last election, was not damaged, and
which now was brighter end livelier.
(Cheers, j The Irish believed that the gov?
ernment's policy had not tho sanction of the
British nation. [Irish cheers.] The gov?
ernment's foundation wa3 slipping from un?
der them, aud their action in reference to
the proclamation of the League showed that
their strength wa? fading. Ireland seeing
this, trusted the English nation to fulfil her
reasonable wishes, and was convinced that
her expectations would not be disappointed.
Mr. Gladstone then presented his resolu?
tions amid prolonged cheers.
Mr. Balfour said that Mr. Gladstone
would have been wiser had be rested his ar
gument on the allegation that the House
was ignorant of the grounds for the procla?
mation, rather than on a defense of the
league. The government's difficulty was
not the finding of evidence to justify the
proclamation, but the selecting of it from
the enormous mass of evidence they possess?
ed. There was sufficient foundation to jus?
tify the proclamation in the columns of the
local newspapers, without going into the
government's confidential reports. He
quoted at length from documents to show
that the League was guilty of boycotting, co?
ercing, and instigating infractions of the law.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt asked the
Speaker whether the documents trom which
he quoted would be submitted to the House.
Mr. Balfour refused to submit the docu?
Sir William asked the Speaker whether
Mr. Balfour was bouud to table the official
The Speaker replied that Mr. Balfour was
not bound to table confidential documents,
but the case was different with official pa?
pers, which the House might want to verify.
Harcourt?After the Speaker's ruling, I
expect that the papers will be tabled.
Balfour?I shall do nothing of the kind.
My documents are of three sorts?public and
confidential papers, and my owu notes. If
the people realized the true nature and
working of the League, they would, regard?
less of creed or party, support the govern?
ment. J Ministerial cheers.]
Mr. Balfour accused the opposition,
i through Mr. Gladstone, of making them
selves apologists for, and therefor accom?
plices in, intimidation.
Mr. Harrington, nationalist, commented
? upon the worlhlessoesa of documents which
the government refused to table. He said it
j would be the duty of tbo League to con
I tinue the work, end not to shrink from the
Mr. Buchanan, liberal unionist, said that
I the government's action was ill limed.

For the FIFTY-THIRD SESSION, which opens
September 15, 1SS7, we have plcasuro in an?
nouncing in addition to the advantages heretofore
offered the following new facilities:
I. A general renovation of buildings and im?
provement of grounds, accomplished during the
past session, makiug our arrangomeuts for the
comfort and health of students very superior.
Among these we note especially an Artesian
Well, furnishing an abundant supply of pure
water, absolutely freo from the possibility of con?
tamination by surfaco drainage.
II. The enlargement of our Scientific Course by
the addition of an Adjunct Professor of Physics
aud the purchase of a large amount of new appa?
ratus, to be imported from Europe for that de?
III. An entirely now feature is our "Depart?
ment of Physical Culture" upon the Sargeut sys?
tem, under the care of Professor ,T. B. Crcnshaw,
A. M. It i* desigued to do away with the re?
proach that college training too often destroys
the health of the body in its efforts to develop the
mind. It offers a regular courso of systematic ex?
ercises under a competent instructor, and with
apparatus constructed not to test the superiority
of one studeut over another, but to dovclop each
one individually to the best ho is capable of. Ro?
bustness of health and vigor and grace of body
arc the objects sought. Striking results have
been attained at Harvard University and else?
where where this system has been tried, and wo
deem its establishment here an important ad?
vance. Those who are specially interested in this
feature will please writo for our special circular.

The Gold Mining Company (location, Music Mountains, A. T..) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its

The shares are made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for five shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.

there is nothing else that they can be used for.
