THE DAILY HHRAID
SATURDAY OCTOBER 16 1886
END OF THE SESSION
The Legislature is to be prorogued
on this the hundred and twenty ninth
day of its deliberations For one thing
the session has been remarkable for its
undue length Various reasons are
adducible for this feature which may
be discussed by themselves at another
time Another marked peculiarity of
the session is found in the astounding
vagaries of some of its decisions tend
ing to establish precedents for govern
ing the status of future Assemblies If
the present Legislature is to form a
new rule for succeeding ones it is
established that non resident voters
may elect representatives in one dis
trict and not in another the question
in each case to be decided by the sim
ple fact as to whether the member
declared elected by the returning officer
belongs to the majority or to the
minority in the House It is also
established that a min may be elected
by fraud- so flagrant as to procure his
conviction and punishment by the
courts of law and yet cjnnot be un
seated provided he belongs to the
party having a majority in the Assem
bly
Some very useful legislation was ini
tiated by the original Ministry that
met the House at opening a portion
of it being perfected before that Minis
try was ejected by a secret conspiracy
introduced and promoted to accom
plishment by private members notablj
by those belonging to the party op
posed to the administration Accept
able and necessary laws were also
framed and passed at the instance of
the Ministry in existence for the
three months prior to Thurs
day last An amendment to the tax
law promoted by a representative
clostsjy identified with all three Minis
tries passed in a form much mutilated
from the original bill but with the valu
able features mainly preserved and
several absurdities pruned The same
member brought in a rider to the law
thus amended increasing the direct
taxation from three quarters to one per
cent This would not be objectionable
provided the revenue was to be ir
creased thereby for the benefit of
necessary services but it was rightfully
though unsuccessfully opposed because
the proposed expenditures had been
swelled for objects not only of no
utility but in many cases likely to be of
injury to the country
Probably what will most distinguish
the session hereafter will be the sudden
changes in the policy and personnel of
the Ministry The changes in policy
have been numberless while there
have been two reconstructions of the
Cabinet Besides the changes in the
Cabinet there have been changes in
important offices and the mutations in
both respects have unsettled the public
mind injuriously in extent and degree
It is impossible to forecast or measure
all the results to follow so much eccen
tric manipulation and disturbance of
the public service They must be very
injurious to the common welfare It
would take up too much space especi
ally as this docs -not pretend to be a
review of the session to more than
refer to the adoption of a policy of
borrowing more money and going
abroad to do so The ten million loan
act is not so serious a matter as the
continuance at the head of the admin
istration of a man who changed- his
base on that most important question
not once but many times during the
session
NOTES AND COMMENTS
Thurhdays Ministry is likely the one
to appear in the closing ceremonies to
day -At least there was no change up
till late last night

Subscrbe for the Hekald
The Government organ was rather
sarcastic yesterday on the old man in
constant at the head of the Govern
ment At the same time it promised
to support his administration That
shows what kind of a machine a party
organ is
The reappearance of the irrepressi
ble Mr Gibson in the last formed
Cabinet brings forcibly to mind the
anecdote of a man who said he had
heard of hints but never received one
which he had felt obliged to take
although he acknowledged that on
sundry occasions he had been shown
the door kicked down stairs thrown
out of the window and cussed gen
erally
Tho Wives of Toliornii
Truly the Government of the Shah
is a paternal one The women of
Teheran went a few weeks ago in a
body to the Kings palace and com
plained that the coffee shops of which
an extraordinary number have been
opened lately took away their hus
bands from their work and their home
duties causing them to spend all their
money in drink and smoke After all
the drink was merely tea and coffee
The Shah sympathized with the wives
of Teheran He acted promptly and
as the commander of the faithful is said
to have done under similar circum
stances he ordered that all the coffee
houses in the capital were to be closed
Closed they were closed tlley remain
The next day the royal edict went forth
ttiat all the provincial coffee houses
were to be closed They too are all
stmt up rancy such an order in a
civilized country but here nobody
grumbles I he women of course are
in ecstasies but the haunters of coffee
houses who form by far the larger pro
portion of the male sex in the large
Persian towns are in despair Corr

a minute and then separated for life

A FionoU Iiawsui
From Bordeaux comes the report of
a lawsuit which shows that French
officials have sometimes ideas of the
intenscst originality A merchant of
that town had two casks of rum stolen
from his bonded store The thieves
are caught and punished but unluckily
they had disposed of the rum before
being taken and consequently the mer
chant had no other satisfaction than is
afforded by the knowledge that his un
welcome patrons will be the guests of
the btate for a few years Having writ
ten off the value of his two casks of
rum the merchant thought to have
done with the matter but incredible as
it may appear the collectors of Revenue
Indirects came down on him for the
taxes due on the stolen spirits because
as they contended it had gone into
consumption Naturally enough the
application was treated as preposterous
and the case will soon be submitted for
the decision of the Bordeaux tribunals
The Sultan of Morocco has decided
to engage a number of German officers
