It hat been evident for some time that
Pennon Commissioner Tanner would
have to go or else the administration
would forfeit the respect of the conserva
tive and thinking element of the people,
which, fortunately for the country, hap
pens still to be in the ascendant. The
American people are very patient and un
complalnlngly bear a great many burdens
that they should not be called upon to en
dure, but Tanner was really too much.
Withiu six months an enormous treasury
surplus, wrung from the people by un
necessary taxation, has been pretty nearly
dissipated, and for this the commissioner
of nlona has, by common consent, been
beld chit fl J responsible. His whole course
since his appointment has been scanda
lous, lie has permitted the employes of
his office to re rale their own pensions.
Ilia method of conducting his department,
which expends more money than any
other umlir the government, has been in
every wsj loose and unbusinesslike. A
sample Instance of his liberality at other
peoplu's expense is his award of a back
pension amounting to 14.0(10 to a United
States senator without that gentleman's
knowledge and even without his having
applied for It. This affair looks very
much like an attempt upon Tanner's part
to acquire favor in high circles at the ex
pense of the public treasury. In fact,
his policy may be best summed up in bis
own phrane: "The surplus Ood help

London, 8ept 17. The Liberal newaiw
nan In genera are continuing to treat Chief
Secretary Balfour'a sutficeatiou of a Roman
Catholic university In the OHxt enutioua
manner. If Balfour bad laid subtle plans to
liarupt the HiMiie' Rulers he oould not have
hnaon a mors effdetive method. The bill is
likely to divide the Homo Rulers into three
opeletwly antaouiiftic parlies. The Irish'
nembers who follow I'aruell will make
kM-ins practically with the RoverDment that
iaa persecuted and imprianned tbera, and
will rote with their quondam enemies for
The Thro IMvfeinna.
Parnell's ready acceptance of the sagges
tiNi Iwtokens this, if it does not show actual
illusion with the government. Besides,
when one reinemiwrs Taruoirs attitude in
reference to the Irish appropriation bills
pansed last setMion, wIhmi the Iriah leader ad
mitted that ho would accept any money for
Ireland that the iniierinl parliament would
live, and not thank Enelnnd for it. either, it
:aii not lie doubteti how lie will receive the
new proposition. The Irish memnera who
will not follow J'arned's lead and who are
tlready denouncing the project will form a
tncoud division, and the Ultidxtoneau Home
killers, who are dis-.-Ufted with the accept
noe by the lrwh of anything at Balfour's
kamlH, aud who will in comtequeiice forsake
very thing Irish, will form the third party,
Gladstone as yet gives no opinion in the
natter, but, on the other buml. Michael

leaves no doubt as to his poaition. lib sting
lag lotter utters a powerful protext and re
buke to the Irish niMinbers at Westminster
who would mxke terms with the bated Bal

ment. II maintains that the question of a
Roman Catholic university is essentially one
for a borne rule parliament, and bitterjy de
nounce what he intimates is a "deal" The
uhjtct furnishes a fruitlul source of con
troversy during the receea, and however
gingerly the newpaera touch upon it they
rind It iteceiutary to cay something. The
matter is bound to be thoroughly aired be
fore the next session begins, and the lines
which each separate duple will pursue are

BOUNCING THE "BLACKLEGS."
Men Who Took the London HtriketV
1' lures Not F.nttratly Happy.
London, Hept. 17. Much ill-feeling ex
isted vi sterday between the returned dock
laborers and the men who took the places of
the strikers, and the former refused to work
with them. Several encounters occurred
between them. Many of the dock laborers
protested that the leaden of the strike bad
no right to agree to the proposal that the
strikers should work hand in band with tbe
They Will lie Frown Out.
The officials of ttie dock companies made a
complaiut to the lord mayor against tbe
action of tbe returned strikers, and tbe lord
mayor promised to do bis utmost to keep the
men to their agreement. Meanwhile the
situation was regarded so serious that
nn urgent meeting of the commit
tee of tbe dock companies, the cun
cil ation committee and tbe leaders of the
strike was convened at tbe Mansion bouse.
I is rxectd that the matter will lie settled
in the usual way, via : Tbe "blacklegs"
will l gradually dropped now that thev are
of no use to the dock companies. The late
strikers will help the consummation by
threats and aasaulta that will make tbe lives
of the "blacklegs" a burden to them, so tbey
will be glad to get away.
A 4 nance la Fablie Opinion.
Tbe fortunate termiimtion of the strike
ootitmues to be a leading theme for comment
in tbe pose, and the leason drawn from re
cent exenu seems to be, in the great major
ity of cases, that a vast change boa b -n
wrought in public opinion during the paar
few years in regard to tbe nroiwr relations
of society to tbe individual. Nome time ago
the doctrine of Inisnes faire had full swing.
in tbe sense of letting all institutions con
cerning property alone, no matter bow much
suffering might lie caused by tbeir ih-ra
tions. At tbe same time society wns forced
to bear the burden of at least partial allevia
tion of this suffering through the poor laws.

under the circumstances then existing, that
the killing was necessary in order
to the full and complete discharge
of such duty? The answer to this prop-
