FORTY MAJORITY FOR GLADSTONE
In a House Where There Was Only Ten
Members Missing-, Kach Side Having
Five Absentees Home llulers Jubilate
Over the Result, and Especially Crow
Over Iialfour Chamberlain Lo.es Hi.
Temper and Gives Tim Healy a "Going
Over" The Close of the Fight.
London, Aug. 12. The scene in the
house of commons during last evening's
final debate and decisive vote on the ad
dress hps not been equaled in interesting
and exciting features since the similar
crisis of the home rule debate in 1SS6,
when Gladstone, now victorious, was
Overthrown. Every inch of available
space on the floor was occupied, and some
of the members had to find seats in the
galleries, and even to speak from these
elevated and distant positions. Every
English member was present, and the to
tal number of absentees was only ten.
The visitors who crowded the outsiders'
galleries were well repaid for their attend
ance by witnessing one of the peaceful
revolutions by which England overthrows
one set of rulers and sets up another.
Gladstone Looked Exhausted.
Though Herbert Gladstone declares that
his father has fully recovered his health,
and that the stories of his weakness
are inventions of malicious political ene
mies; and though the British Medical
Journal, on the authority of Sir Andrew
Clarke, states that Gladstone is sound in
body and mind, and able to work wilh
any man of his age; nevertheless the
aged statesman yesterday looked pale and
distressed, and sank into bis seat as
though exhausted. He was nervous and
irritable. The light from the opposite
windows annoyed him, his eyes being still
weak from the effects of t lie injury sus
tained by one of them during the cam
paign in Scotland. At a signal from
him the attendants closed the windows
and drew the curtains. During most of
the debate Gladstone listened with his
eyes closed, keeping his hand to his ear in
token of attention to what was being said.
Chamberlain "Goes For" Healy.
Chamberlain never came so near losing
control of himself ns in his rage at the tac
tics employed by Tim Healy to prevent his
delivering a speech. The Brummagem
statesman heaped denunciations upon
Healy's head. Healy smiled sardonically
during most of the philippic, but when
Chamberlain declared that Healy was a
person who would insult anv man, and
then, pausing, added with offensive em
phasis, "or any woman," the face of the
Irish member underwent a sudden change
of appearance, and became livid with sup
pressed rage. Ihe Tories yelled with de
light at Chamberlain's home thrust, and
kept up the shouting until they were
hoarse. After Chamberlain's speech he and
Lord Randolph Churchill were seen chat
ting together in the lobby, the first time
they have been known to converse in
l'oints from the Closing Debate.
The Home Rulers let the Conservatives
and Liberal-Unionists have the floor yes
terday. Sir John Lubbock, Unionist, said
it was unjust that excessive Irish repre
sentation should be able to force home rule
on England and Scotland. Sir Edward
Clark, Conservative, said that only three
of the prominent Liberals had been elected
on the home rule issue, and these by de
creased majorities. When Chamberlain
arose to speak Tim Healy objected, alleg
ing that be had spoken once already, but
the speaker couldn t agree with Heay,
and Chamberlain spoke, denouncing home
rule and declaring that the Gladstomans
could not keep faith with both the Irish
and English people.
McCartney Talks Rashly.
McCartney, Conservative, from South
Antrim, said that the honorable gentle
man from Dublin, Field, wanted to wade
in Protestant blood. This statement was
received with loud cries of "oh, oh,"
from the Irish benches and McCartney
subsequently withdrew it and apologised.
Admiral Field, Conservative for the East
bourne division of Sussex, said that the
government, by firing at the opposition
for three days, would have sun k it had it
not been for tho. "Cork dust of the Irish
lifeboat." It would be the bounden dnty
of the house of lords, be said, to reject a
bill sent it by a miserable majority of
THE INEVITABLE OCCURS.
Tote of Ko Confidence Carried by Forty
Sir Henry James, Liberal-Unionist for
the Lanes division of Bury, defended the
government in favoring a protracted de
bate, and cited the four days' debate in the
house in 1841. He called upon Gladstone
to confirm the applicability of the preced
ent, but Gladstone refused to sanction the
comparison, remarktug: "The cases are
The bouse showed symptoms of restive
ness during Sir Henry James' speech, and
when the Right Hon. Henry Chaplin,
president of the board of agriculture, arose
to defend the government, he was received
with continued cries of "divide" and gen
eral confusion among the opposition
Chaplin Drank the Firewater.
Chaplin proceeded undismayed, how
ever, to attack the opposition for its aim
less and undefined policy. He was fre
quently interrupted, and sat down amid
renewed calls for a division laughter from
the opposition benches, and faint cheers
from the ministerialists, A glass of
whisky had been sent to Chaplin daring
his speech as if to suggest - that he might
abbreviate it, and upon resuming his seat
he drank it. Meantime the calls for a
division swelled to a chorus, and were not
stilled until the declaration came that
the vote on the "no confidence," was at
hand. In the division the Paroellites and
anti-Pamellitee fell in together behind
Gladstone. When the member re-entered
She house ironic cheers were given for

Salisbury's Cabinet Goes Out.
Gladstone was almost the last one of all
to come back. When he appeard the)
Nationalists rose, waved 'their hats and
cheered. It was thou announced that the
vote for the amendment was 350, against
the amendment 310; majority for the
amendment, 40. Five Conservatives and
five Liberals were absent. The Literals
rose, waving their hats, turned to Glad
stone and cheered for several n.inutes
The grand old man flushed slightly dur
the ovation, but otherwise was apparently
unmoved. As the cheering abated Hal
four, amid cries of "coercion," cheering
and "booing" and counter-cheering, moved
the adjournment of the house, which was
TRANSACTIONS OF THE TEMPLARS.
Hugh HcCurdy Elected Grand Master
lioston to Entertain in 1803.
Denver, Aug. 12. Boston will enter
tain the triennial Knight Templars' con
clave in 1S95. This was settled yesterday
afternoon when Boston got 90 votes and
Cincinnati 78. This and the election of
grand encampment officers were the im
portant features of the meeting yesterday.
As soon as the conclave met yesterday
morning the election of officers was taken
up. Hugh McCurdy, of Corunua, Mich.,
as expected. was elected grand master, and
made a neat speech in acknowledgment
of the honor.
A Graceful Conclusion.
In concluding his speech the new grand
master said: "To his boatmen overcome
by fear in a violent storm the great Cwsar
once said: 'Why do you fearf Vou carry
Ca?sar. Thus my own fears as your grand
master in the future will be dispelled by
the self-asked and self-answered question:
'Why do you fearf Those noble Cajsars
carry you." The election was a promotion
all round. McCurdy had been deputy
grand master, and in accordance with cus
tom the otht r three highest officers were
moved up. W. Larue Thomas, of Dan
ville, Ky., was elected deputy grand mas
ter; Reuben H. Lloyd, of San Francisco,
grand generalissimo, and H. B. Stoddard,
of Bryan, Tex., gland captain general.
Grand Secretarial Guild.
The grand secretarial guild also elected'
officers, as follows: John 11. Brown, of
Kansas, president; Charles E. Meyer, of
Pennsylvania, first vice president; George
C. Connor, " ennessee, second vice presi
dent; Wilii:;m R, Bowen, Nebraska, sec
retary, and Edward C. Parmellee, Col
orado, treasurer. Among the visiting
knights the day and evening were spent
in visiting points of interest in and out of
the city, and in continued receptions. The
numerous bands kept the air alive with
Parade of the Firemen.
The Denver fire department gave a
parade yesterday morning and the streets
were thronged with spectators. The boys
all looked their best. Their uniforms
were of neat blue, with silver buttons
showing a world of hard work in the polish
ing line. The different apparatus also
shown resplendent and the harness on the
. horses was black as ebony. The steeds
themselves had been polished until their
silken skins were a gloss not equalled by
anything hirsute in the city.
WILL DISCUSS A BOYCOTT.
Meeting of Federation Leaders at Home
stead 0lonnell Reports.
Homestead, Pa., Aug. 12. William A.
Carney, member of the executive commit
tee of the American Federation of Labor
came to Homestead yesterday afternoon.
To a United Press reporter he announced
that his mission here is to arrange for the
quarterly meeting of the council to be held
here today. While the usual business;
will be transacted at the meetingthe r.al
object in calling the council together in
this place is to consider the Homestead
strike and the subject of boycotting Car
A Report from O'Donnell.
The Homestead advisory committee had
a long meeting yesterday and did not ad
ior.rn until U o'clock last night. Hugh
O'Donnell was present and reported what
he had done while in the east. The report
was most nattering and was received with
muck enthusiasm, and a resolution in
dorsing O'Donnell was adopted. What
the report v. as about is not stated, but it
was presumably as to his success in advo
cating a boycott of Carnegie products. It
was decided to send other "missionaries"
Carnegie Paying High Wages.
One result of the agreement on scale of
the Amalgamated and the manufacturers
is that all of Carnegie's mills are paying
higher wages than those who agreed to pay
the ' Amalgamated scale. Lovejoy said
yesterday that their scale was fixed, and
would continue to be paid, although it is
10 per cent, higher than the scale at other
mills. He also said that the management
is daily receiving messages from Carnegie,
who approves its course.
Going to Devise Retaliation.
New YoisK, Aug. 12. The executive
council of the American Federation of
Labor will hold a secret meeting some
time this week. It is called in relation to
the labor troubles at present disturbing
this county, with particular reference to
the New York and Homestead Btrik.es. It
is expected that some retaliatory measures
will be devised.
Fifty Rounds and a Draw.
Sax Fisaxcisco, Aug. 12. Billy La
Vigne, of Saginaw, Mich., and Jim Burge,
tho celebrated "Iron Bark Jimmy," of Aus
tralia, fought to a draw last night in the
Pacific Athletic club rooms for a purse of
fl.iVJ. La Vigne was entirely unknown to
the Pacific coast, while Burge, though not
especially clever, is notoriously a perfect
glutton for punishment, and has won
most of his battles simply by letting his
antagonists wear themselves out on him.
He couldn't do it last night, for at the end
of the fiftieth round both men were so
tired that the referee stopped the fight
and called it a draw.
Fast Time at Monmouth.
New Yoke, Aug. 12. At Monmouth
park yesterday Correction ran mile in
1:12, Montana did the XJ' miles in 2:08,
while no competitor appeared to contend
a mile with Kingston and he had a

The. Death of the Sbults Girls.
Grafton, Neb., Aug. 12. The coroner's
jury in the inquest over the bodies of Her
tha and Lizzie Shultz rendered a verdict
of "suicide by poison." No post-mortem
examination was held. The only reason
for thinking they committed suicide is
that they laughingly asked the young man
who drove them home if he would come to
tbelr funeral. The verdict of the coroner's
Jury has caused much unfavorable com
ment. No effort was made to show a mo
tive for suicide, and there was no evidence
that poison bad been taken.
