London, March 12. The dbice in tue
commons last night on Jennings' motion to
amend the government resolution as to the
disposition of the Parnell report by includ
ing a censure of The Times, was decidedly
warm. Ird Randolph Churchill, who had
been expected to fly the Conservative track,
did uot disappoint extectations. Ho said
that from th i inception of the commission
he had matched tbe proceedings with feel
ings of sorrow an 1 apprehension, which
feelings had grown s'roiiger within him as
the proceedings developed. The proceedings
were vitiated throughout by their unconsti
tutional character. He dwelt at length
upon the course of the government in setting
aside the ordinary tribunals, w hile holding
that there was prima facie evidence against
tbe accused members. Thus insisting, it waa
tbe duty of the government, he contended,
to proceed against the aorsjssd members
llbjectloi. tn the Commission.
He further argued against tht special ac
tion ol Dm government in creating a com
mission ol thret- judges to fulfill the func
tions of judge an.; jury for the purpose ot
trying men accused of criminal conspiracy.
Tbe govei tirneut had decided to place men
w he wen their poMtaflsJ opponents on trial
on criminal charge without giving to them
the protection which a jury would give
Parnell cheers ) Continuing, Lord Ran
dolpb said the govern m --nt had selected the
tribunal without giving the accused even tht
privileges which belong to criminals -of se
ie ting or challenging their jury. Not
within the century, he said, had any public
man been tested as Parnell had been, and he
appealed to the house to reject such unique
and unprecedented proceedings.
Also Peaawaaoei closure.
The action ot the government in constitut
ing the fo'.nmis-ion was adopted under the
closure method, which, though in ls2 the
government had n-garde 1 BWCtl procedure
unconstitutional, was used by the govern
ment in Isss .,s a method of oppression for
its opponents. Nemeaia, he said, had attended
the govci nni -nt in its adoption of such

Vociferous ch.-ers from the Parnellttea.
The govermnent in appointing the commis
sion bad violated the constitution. If the
government insisted upon its motion he
Churchill would insist iqion his right to
condemn not only the Pamellites, but The
Times, which had been found guilty of
atr.K.'ioiis and unexampled liln-1 and slander.
Remarks by Chamberlain.
Chanilt. rlnin said the Psfwllillli Sad in
