Londox, Aug. 10. The bouse of com
mons was again densely crowded yester
day, and fresh evidence was afforded that
England's legislature had outgrown its
old quarters. A distinguished audience
was in the galleries. All the ministers
and ex-ministers were present. The peers
gallery was especially crowded. There
were three dukes, two marquises, fire
earls and a long string of viscounts and
barons, anxious to hear the expected
threats of doom pronounced against their
order. Minister Lincoln and Von Hatz
feldt, the German ambassador, were
among those in the gallery set apart for
the diplomats. The ladies' gallery
thronged with beauty, wealth and fash
Ion. Gladstone and His Wife.
Mrs. Gladstone sat in her accustomed
corner, eagerly watching herdistinguished
husband as he opened the debate. Glad
stone was pale, but apparently strong. His
features wore an expression of great earn
estness. He was in excellent voice, and
spoke with vigor and clearness. He seemed
to have paid more attention than usual to
his attire, and the negligence generally ob
served in this resjiect was conspicuously
absent. His old-fashioned collar was spot
lessly white and his black stock new and
trim. He wore a large white nosegay in
his buttonhole, and looked "quite as young
as he used to be."
The Grand Old Man Speaks.
Of course the point of interest in the
day's proceedings was the grand old man's
speech, especially that part regarding
home rule. When he arose there were
wild cheers by the Liberals aud home
rulers. He criticized the Tin ics for their
action in continuing to h. office when
the country had pronounced against them
as he claimed, on the very issue which
they claim was not prominent in many
districts in which Liberals were returned,
an issue that he said had been discussed
more fully than any ever put btfore the
The N Home Rule Hi It.
The claim cf I.il.-wul had been for
years at the fori- fr'. :i: u the battle. The
principles of his bont- ::ill were pretty
well known. By i:s provisions there
would be a full aud effectual maintenance
of imperial supremacy while . Ireland
would be given the conduct of her own
affairs. Irish representation in the house
of commons was also contemplated under
certain conditions. As to the form in
which these principles would be embodied
it was the duty of the Liberals to select
the best form, but riot until they had been
placed in power.
fTT Referring to the House of Lords.
Gladstone further said that he enter
tained no doubt about the duty of a Lib
eral government, in the event of a re
jection of a home rule bill by the lords. Its
rejection would not terminate their duty.
At the same time it would be necessary,
even in the year 1893, to deal with a con
siderable portion of British wants. That
portion of his speech referring to the lords
was loudly cheered by his partisans. He
admitted that the Liberal majority had
Irish votes for a basis treat cheering by
the Tories, but this was a recommenda
tion. Fight-Hour Men I" lit in a Word.
Pickard and Woods, members of parlia
ment and respectively secretaries of the
Yorkshire and Lancashire miners' federa
tion, have written Gladstone and Harcourt
asking that the question of eight hours for
miners be mentioned during the present
debate and a reference thereto be included
in the reply to the queen's speech. They
declare that a majority of the members of
the newly elected house are in favor of
BALFOUR IS "SARKASTICAL."
The G. O. M s Policy Declared
Balfour replied to Gladstone and put
forth all his powers of sarcasm. He taunt
ed Gladstone with describing his Irish pol
icy as moral, when it was really and essen
tially immoral. Kngland was a partner of
Ii eland in the union, and certainly had a
right to a hearing in regard to the pro
posed dissolution of the union. The in
coming government must decide the mean
ing of the phrase used by Gladstone about
administering law in In land in sympathy
with the opinions of the community
whether it would mean the release of the
dynamiters, aud whether it would mean
the restoration, in defiance of the legal
rights of property, of 3,000 evicted Irish
Cheers and Counter Cheers.
The incoming ministry might possess a
majority, but they would be the slaves of
their Irish supporters. Therefore they
the beaten party here the speaker was in
terrupted by loud Liberal aud Irish cheers
looked forward hopefully to the future,
loud and flefiant Tory and Liberal
Unionist cheers. " The victorious party,
Balfour continued, looked to the future
with perplexity and dismay. He, Balfour,
believed that the British electors had re
turned many Liberals .under a delusion
and misapprehension. JThey intended
that their candidates should deal with
domestic legislation, and when they found
out their mistake they would turn again
to the party able and willing ' to frame
laws worthy cf the genuine destinies of
the great empire.
O'Connor Charges Corruption.
In replying to Balfour O'Connor, home
ruler for the Scotland division of Liver
pool, said that the Conservatives had ob
tained power in 1886 by the help of the
Nationalist vote aud had not scrupled then
to take office with Irish assistance. O'Con
lor. also accused Unionist of . corrupt
practices during the recent general elec
tion and cited several instance irj which
the law against such practices had been J THE TROUBLE AT HOMESTEAD,

Tim Harrington Feels Uneasy.
Timothy Harrington, Parnellite for
Dublin Harbor, said that something in
the tone Gladstone's speech had caused
uneasiness among tbe Irish members, and
he warned the Liberals that the home
rule quest iou must be attended to without
delay. It was not a matter for trimming
or temporizing, but immediate and un

Colonel Saunderson, conservative foi
North Armagh, spoke as to the results

stories are denied by Superintendent Pot

The Hoy cot t Proposition.
Pittsburg, Aug. 10. The proposition
made by Gompers when he was here last
week to iuaugurate a sweeping boycott on
Carnegiu's productsis under consideration
by the Amalgamated committee. The
plan is to have tbe railway brotherhoods
refuse to handle the products and the
building trades to do the same. The diffi
culty is mostly with the railway brother-
w hich would follow the inauguration of , Iloods l,ut ""'gotiations will be commencad
home rule. He contended that the Irish ! at once-
fvVh was controlled by Archbishop
Wm. Redmond, Parnellite for East
Clare, replied to Saunderson and ridiculed
the latter'a remarks as to ecclesiastic
domination of Irish politics. An Irish
parliament, he said, would be as free from
priestly interference as was the house of
commons. The debate was then adjourned.
RYDER GENERALLY CONDEMNED.
But the Public Uas Sympathy for Ills
Copenhagen-, Aug. 10. Ryder, the Amer
ican consul who is under charge of misap
propriating funds, is in a feeble condition.
His wife, who was arrested with him, is a
pretty woman of only 19. She was sub
jected to questioning at Ryder's request,
and made statements to shield him which
were considered by the authorities to be
plainly false. This led to her arrest. Since
then she has been questioned several times,
and has made contradictory replies. Her
position excites public sympathy. But
there is little feeling shown on Ryder's
Cholera on the German Ilorder.

Atkinson on American Wheat.
LOXDOX, Aug. 10. Before the British
associat ion Edward Atkinson, of Bostrn,
read a paper on American wheat supplies
and the decreased cost of production,
which he said enabled the farmers of the
western states to reap the same profits
from lower prices.
CARLISLE ON SILVER.
The Senator Favors Making
Pay for Coinage.
Washing ton, Aug. 10. Senator Carlisle
has written a Kentucky friend explaining
his position on silver. The first point the
senator makes plain is that he is not in fa
vor of the owner of bullion either gold
or silver getting the seigniorage. He de
clares the Bland bill as it passed the house
a bill for tbe exclusive benefit of a few
bullion dealers and mining companies.
Just How tbe Senator Stands.
In defining his position briefly the sena
tor says: "I am opposed to free coinage of
either gold or silver, but in favor of un
limited coinage of both metals upon terms
of exact equality. No discrimination
should be made in favor of one metal and
against the other; nor should any discrim
ination be made in favor of the
holders of either gold or silver bullion, and
against the great body of the people who
own other kinds of property," which is
further explained by the statement that
the man who owns the bullion where
there is no seigniorage, should pay for the
"Rank Is Hut the Guinea's Stamp."
After indorsing the money plank in the
Democratic national platform, aud declar
ing that it means a silver dollar of equal
bulliou value to the gold dollar, the sena
tor proceeds: "Coinage adds nothing what
ever to the intrinsic value of the metal,
but only ascertains officially its weight
aud fineness, putting it in a convenient
form for circulation, and authenticates it
by the stamp of the government. The
United States has coined over $400,000,000
in silver since the passage of the act ot
1875, but this has not added one cent to the
intrinsic value of the metal contained in
them; nor has the purchase aud coinage
of this enormous mass of silver during a
period of years caused any increase in the
price of silver bullion. On the contrary
the price of silver bullion in all the mark
ets of the world, in those countries where
there is free coinage aa well as in those
where the mints are closed to silver, is
much lower now than it was in 1878.
A "Double Standard" not Possible.
"Sixty-eight cents worth of silver and
one dollar's worth of gold cannot both be
standards of value at the same time and
place, and this has been fully demon
strated by our own experience during the
last fourteen years; for although the silver
dollar has been all that time a full legal
tender under the statutes of the United
States everybody admits that we are still
on a gold basis and therefore the valus of
paper in circulation is measured, not by
silver, but by gold." The only thing to be
done tbe senator says is either tbe coin
age in (he silver dollar of 100 cents worth
of bullion or an international coinage
