IEISH MEMEEES IN THE SAME FIX.
Bat the First Day's Debate In Parlia
ment on the Address to the Throne
Develops Nothing Tories Hold on Un
til No Confidence Is Toted Glad
stone's Health a Matter of Anxiety to
His 1'riends Consnl Ryder Seems To
Be in a Bad Corner.
LiOndos', Aug. 0- The scenes around the
house of parliament yesterday were almost
a, repetition of those witnessed on the
opening day. The streets were crowded
with people curious to see the new mem
bers as they arrived, and the lobbies were
full of persons having business, or pre
tending to have it, with the legislators.
The house of commons seats about 500
people. There were fully 600 present.
The overflow found accommodations on
the steps, or stood around the entrances.
The galleries, not very spacious, were
crowded. Among the notabilities to be
seen were Prince Christian, Minister Lin
coln and numerous Kuropean diplomats.
That liuruptious Labor Member.
Keir Hardie, the bumptious labor mem
ber, showed his thick-skinned defiance of
public opinion by again wearing his cap,
which would not be so offensive in the
eyes of his fellow members if it had at
least the merit of cleanliness. Hardie did
not remove the cap even while the mace
was passing. This was more than one of
the members standing near could endure,
and with a sweep of his arm knocked the
objectionable covering off llardie's head.
Hardie-turned angrily to resent the in
sult, and the member who had unhatted
him made a gesture as if to imply that
the action was unintentional, but of
fered no apology. It looked as if blows
would result, but other members stepped
between the two disputants and the mat
ter was dropped. Hardie picked up his
cap nnd began strutting about again with
It on his ill-shaped head as if proud of the
very cheap notoriety he was obtaining.
Preliminary to a Lively Debate.
The queen's speech Was read with the
usual formalities, and simply informs par
liament that there is no business to attend
to and no net cssity for parliament to con
tinue its session at an unusual period of
the year. Then Hart on, Conservative,
movedilieaili'iKs in rvnly to the speech
indorsing the of the late parliament.
Cross, I'onsiTi; .. at-fonded the m otton,
and Aequith, ;n' 1 b-r.-il, moved to
amend to the !: 1 ' ruiiutry and
house had no ti. "he present
cabinet, aud the del . " nary to the
turning out of the Sal;. cabinet was
begun. Hurt, Liborfi, led the mo
tion of Asquilh.
Gosclicu Wants to Know the Issue.
Goschen opi ned the debate by expressing
the hope that the opposition would realize
that the time had come for setting forth
their mysterious policy toward Ireland.
He then reviewed the course of the gen
eral election, maintaining that the voters
had been hoodwinked by the Gladstonians
with minor issues adapted to local con
sumption, and that therefore no fair re
turn of popular opinion on borne rule had
been obtained. In Wales much of the
fight had been made by the Gladstouians
on disestablishment, and this issue had
counted there for more than home rule in
determining the results. To the rural
electors, the Gladstonians had whispered
about the "denr loaf" nnd the promises of
better times had counted there, too, more
than home lule in influencing votes.
McCarthy Also Wants to Know.
Justin McCarthy, the anti-Parnellite
leader, replied to Goschen. He reviewed
Goschen's attack upon the opposition.
The whole Unionist policy, he said, might
be summed up in one word, "coercion.
McCarthy admitted that he wished to be
well assured what the successor of the
present government would do for Ireland.
If the present bill when explained should
prove acceptable to the Irish peopla the
Irish members would suport it; if it
should be uusatisfaetorv the Irish mem
hers would be against 'it.
A I'ainellite View by Redmond.
John Kedmond, Parnellite for Waterford
City, spoke of the interesof every Nation
alist in facilitating the eviction of the pres
ent government, and expressed his regret
that the house must be kept in ignorance
of the home rule bill until next February.
The Irish parliament to be granted by the
biil, he said, must not be subject to re
vision aud repeal. He demanded the re
lease of the Irishmen imprisoned at the
time of the dynamite panic and the rein
statement of evicted tenants. Were these
demands not granted by the bill he would
not support it. Viscount Wolmer, Ltiberal
Uuionist for Edinburgh, closed the de
bate and the house ad jo irned.
THE GRAND OLD MAN'S HEALTH.
Kuiuors Afloat That He Is Not Satifac
- Serious minors are again afloat in re
gard to Gladstone's health. It is positive
ly slated that he has had fainting fits
three times within the past week. It is
also declared that Sunday he was seised
with a choleraic attack, aud that it was
only by the timely arrival of Sir Andrew
Clark, his physician, that the ailment was
gotten under such control, after three
hours work, that the patient was able to
receive callers. Yesterday though pre
senting a brave appearance, he showed
evidence of weakness. His friends were
alarmed at the lack of color in his face,
and at his list 1 est n ess except when aroused
by some pressing need of action.
Views of the Optimists. ; ' ?
It is nrgued, however, Dy those "who
claim that Gladstone is fully able to stand
the fatigues of oflice that there is no cause
for fear on account of his having a bad
day now and . then. At his age nothing
else could be expected, au'd it is not, they
declare, at all necessary for a man to be in
fighting condition every minute in order
to carry on a government successfully.
Nevertheless the Liberals are anxious to
have the announcement of the cabinet
made and the other necessary business got
out of the way speedily, so that there will
be no excuse for n autumn session, and
Gladstone can retire to Hawarden and re
cuperate until next February. .
A Farnellite Contesta'a Seat.
The defeated Parnellite, Dalton, in
South Meath, has petitioned for the un
seating of his successful opponent, Ful
lam, on the ground of undue clerical in
fluence. He alleges that the bishop of
Meath had a letter read at every altar pre
vious to election, threatening a religious
boycott against persons who voted for the
Parnellite candidate. He also alleges that
the priests by means of threats influenced
; voters against him. It is thcught that if
' Dalton makes out his case several other
f defeated Parnellites will be able to unseat
, their McCarthyite opponents on similar
grounds, thus adding to the difficulties of
CONSUL RYDER'S BAD CASE.
Copenhagen, Aug. 8. United States
Consul Ryder, who was recently arrested
' at the instance of a man who claimed that
j lie had withheld money transmitted
through him from America, was formally
examined yesterday. He made a partial
confession of the irregularities with which
he had been charged. His health is still
precarious, though somewhat less alarm
ing than at the time he was thought to be
dying in jail. The statement was pub
lished some time ago that Ryder embez
zled the reward offered for the capture of
the two men who robbed the New York
brokers, Dyx and Phvfe. The authorities
now decline to confirm this statement. Ru
mor has it that Ryder paid over there
ward after the statement was made that
he was withholding it, and that the par
ties concerned were thui satisfied.

Murder of an Italian Dish op.
Rome, Aug. 9. Federici, bishop of
Foligno, was murdered in a first-class
railway carriage between Assisi and
Foligno Sunday evening. Robbery is sup
posed to have been the motive. The mur
der is supposed to have been committed

was in the compartment with the bishop.
There was a fierce struggle. The bishop's
bead was crushed with some heavy in
strument and he had been stabbed twice
In the breast and once in the neck.

Columbus Can't lie a Saint.
London, Aug. 9. A despatch from
Rome says: The congregation of rites,
with the approval of the pope, has aban
doned the idea of beatifying Columbus,
owing to the discovery of the fact that the
great discoverer maintained immoral "re
lations with a woman. The name of the
woman whose intimacy with the famous
Gentian has prevented his name from be
ing enrolled among the saints is not dis
closed, but the fair charmer is described as
They Don't Seem to "Gee" Well.
Rome, Aug. 9. Germany has withdrawn
from participation in the Italian Colum

herself to an ordinary representation, but
Bonds a fleet of fifteen vessels, completely
overshadowing the other nati ons.

Washington, Aug. 9. A delegation of
Pottawatomie Indians from Wisconsin
called upon the commissioner of Indian
affairs yesterday. These Indians have
been self-supporting and prosperous for
the past fifty years, but now assert that
they must have provision made for their
subsistence. They claim that the govern
ment is still indebted to them to a large
amount on account of the cession of their
land years ago. The Indian office denied
the claim and dismissed the delegation
without even temporary aid, for the rea
son that there is no fund available to
