Wo hold that the will of tho peoplo
may bo clearly expressed in a national
assembly, elected by universal suffrage,
which, though not by any means an
ideal form of expression, Is neverthe
less tho only cno possiblo under tho
present circumstances. It is, thoroforo,
our Intention to take tho State power
from tho hands of tho present govern

Earl Granvlllo and Minister Lowell
have had correspondence looklntr towards no-
gotlatlons Jn the copy right neatly similar to
that existing between England and other
countries. Dillon Is ill, but thero Is noean.e
for anxiety In regard to his condition. The
statement that ho would resign his scat In tho
commons was a canard. The Question will
be left for the decision of tho executive
committee of tho Land League. Gladstone,
replying to Parnell, said he would place no
obstacle In the way of Justin McCarthy's mo
tlon on the action of the Irish Exccutivo in
arbitrarily arresting a member of Parliament
and proclaiming the city of Dublin In abuse
of Its powers granted by the coercion act, but
could not facilitate It.
In tho Houso of Common on tho
night of May 10th, Parnell asked the Govern.
ment to state precisely the acts for which
union was arrested. Forster. Chief Becre.
tary for Ireland, refused to make such
tlon In favor of Dillon. Parnell then moved
an adjournment of the House, and declared
lengthened confinement would probably prove
fatal to Dillon. Gladstone supported Forstcr's
rerusai ana said the government would be
prepared to meet a direct Indictment, hlltnh-
Jccted to being led into a vague discussion

Parnell's amendment opposing tho

cure the tenant farmers such a reduction In

tion, and that It offers no guarantee of the
creation of a sufficient number of occupying
owners to check the monopoly In land or

early in tho evening. At times ho sits

has been known on theso occasions to

A terrible runaway of a horso at

a man- named James Coons ooourrod
on tho turnplko, near Mine Hill Gap,

disposed animal, was Jogging along

ed a black snako whloh was crossing
tho road. Tho snako at once roared ks
hoad and sank its fangs Into tho horso's
leg, just abovo tho kneo, at tho samo
timo coiling itself around tho limb. Tho
horso snorted with terror nnd dashed'
off nt a ton iblo paco. Tho driver was
almost thrown from his seat, but man
aged to rotaln it and hold a firm grip
on tho reins. Tho road was rough and
tho wagon was thrown first to ono side
and then to the other of tho thorough
fare, as tho maddened horso tried to
shako off tho snako in Its wild race.
