Apparently paying very little attention to

not conceal a suspicion that the woman,
hr gingerbread and the unfortunate result
bail better le left severely alone, or at
least treated very ginger-bread-iy. Both
Liberal and Tory leaden join in expressing
deep regret for the occurrance.
Wn Somewhat significant.
It has become certain in fact that the
assault had no politicaJ significance as re
fers to the contest now going on between
Literals and Tories. But it was signifi
cant nevertheless to a very undesirable
Condition of things. The throwiug of
atones and other missiles at carriages has
grown to lie a serious annoyance in Lou
don and other places. It seems to be one
way of expressing the antipathy of the
lowest class to wealth in any form and it
is believed that Gladstone was pelted just
as any olher gentleman would have been
pelted who might have happened to be
passing at the time.
More Liberal Intolerance.
"Liberal intolerance" doesn't seem to
sound well, but there is a good deal of
that sort of thing. Stanley is noi per
mitted to speak and is bowled down by
the Gladstone mob in the presence of his
wife, Who is campaigning wit): him; Cham
berlain meets a like fate; ana now comes
Balfour. He attempted to make an out
door Speech at Sheffield yesterday, but
was howled down. Addressing the re
porters he said he deeply deplored the as
sault upon Gladstone, and was grateful
to know thai the Injuries were not seri
ous uud that the ex-premier would soon
be completely restored to health.
Some Very Tough Cartoons.
Some of the lower newspapers, organs of
both parties, are descending to great scur
rility, and many of the canoons circulated
in the provinces are almost indecent. A
radical newspaper in Yorkshire depicts
Balfour a- a: i assassin, bearing a dagger
dripping with Irish blood. Another is a
picture of Salisbury as an ogre devouring
the people. A low Tory organ, on the
Other hand, has a cartoon oi Mr. Glad
stone's last journey, representing the devil
as dragging him down to the infernal
regions. The paper printing this cartoon
was recalled and suppressed through Tory
STANLEY ON EIGHT HOURS.
He Think the Syntem Would Have Heat
en Him in Africa.
London, June 2i. Henry BL Stanley at
tended a meeting yesterday and addressed
bis electors from a cart. He was accom
panied by his wife. Referring to the eight
boar movement he said that if he had only
worked eight hours a day he never would
have been ahead of the Germans in Af
rica and would never hive added a-K),UOO
square miles of laud to British territory,
while Dr. Peters, at the heiid of the Ger

If , , 'i n ' Would Drop Home ltule.
He adiu''' that if Mr. Gladstone would
only drop his stupid home rule scheme
seven-eighths ol the unionists would flock
around him. Stanley related an Incident
that occurred while he dining with
Joseph Chamberlain lately'. He asked
Chamberlain what he would ail if Ulad
stone gave up the home rule. Chami.1'1'"
lain replied: "I would stretch out my
hand immediately and say: 'We are oue
and inseparable ouce more. '"
He Introduces Dorothy.
Stanley was about to descend from the
cart after finishing his speech, when he
stopped and said: "I had forgotten my
duty. Gentlemen, let me introduce my
dearly beloved wife, late Miss Dorothy
Teunaut. She is a descendent of the
greatest liberal the -country ever knew
MORLEY DISPLEASES THE IRISH.

London, June John Morley has re
plied to an inquiry from an independent
branch of t he Irish National league as to
whether he would join in the work of try
ing to secure the release of certain men
imprisoned by the British government for
alleged complicity in dynamite plots.
Morley said that he did not consider the
matter of such vital importance as to
raise at the present time the question of
freeing these prisoners.
A Barbarous Mode of Warfare.
"The dynamite mode of warfare," Mor
ley added, "is not only barbarous aud de
serving of stern punishment, but is inimi
cal to the strenuous efforts which meu are
making to eud the old system of Irish
government. Wheu that is effected it will
be time to consider such clemency for the
dynamiters as the French showed to the
In turn the Independent branch replied
to Morley ns follows: "You decision has
