London, Nov. 37.?[Special]?In the

tbe government, in view of the recent
crisis in London, n> amend the bank acl
of 18S4 by providing for the issue of one
pound notes. Loschen, the chancellor
or exchequer, declined to make any
settement on the subject.
Balfour, the chief secretary tor Ire?
land, then introduced Bio Irish bill. He !
said the government's policy was the
same as in ISy.i, but for simplicity the
bill h?d been cut in half. Both por?
tions, however, were practically the
same as the bill of lss-.t.
, One variation of the present bill from
that o? last year was t hat it met, in? I
some degree, t'arncll's views
I'arneU had suggested that the privil?
ege of purchase be confined to tenants
whose boltings were under tifty pounds
valuation. Though ho (llnlfo?r) could
not aeeopt exactly that limitation, he
had altered the scope of bill by exclud?
ing ail purely grazing farms and farms
whose tenants dill not reside on ti.vm.
Among other changes embodied ii the
new bill, one had reference to tha ob?
jection taken at the last session to a
limit of twenty years of purchase then
proposed. That limit did not appear in
the new hill (cries of '?Hear, Bear.")
Further power would be given the vice?
roy to extend the period of live years,
during which eight per cent, of the pur?
chase money was payable.
In regard to increasing the powers of
local authorities, Balfour said lie con?
sidered that tin* original proposal,
therefore in the bill, were best that
could be devised. Land purchase in
Ireland was not a local question at all.
The government was using the british
credit to cany out this vital reform, not
primarily for the benefit of this country
or that, hut Tor the benefit of the
enipiro as the whole (Conservative
Another consideration was the fact
that the land question in Ireland was
largely used for political objects. It
would be absurd, therefore, to leave to
tbe communities under tbe intitemont
of agitators to determine whether they
should adopt the remedy going to the
root of their discontent (P?rnollitC/
laughter); if they wore to give the
local control in any form, it ought to be
by plebiscite of rate payers, enabling

to vote upon a question of granting a
