Horns in the Commons and Salihbury
Opens Fire on the Lords Mercy to
Dynamiters Sharply Condemned by the
Tory Leaders How Young Chamberlain
Secured Seats for Vnionists Demon
stration of tnfortunates
LONDON, Feb. 1. An amusing feature of
the opening of parliament yesterday was
tbe spectacle of J. Austin Chamberlain,
the Unionist whip, the son of Joseph
Chamberlain, who drove np to the house
of commons at an early hour In a cab.
The young Unionist, who is about 30 years
Did and very like his father, conveyed
with him in the cab a store of fcilk hats,
which he rapidly deposited on the third
"bench below the gangway on the govern
ment side, thus securing these places for
the Liberal-Unionists. The crowd outside
the house of commons was small through
out the morning hours, but increased
toward mid-day. Prominent memhers of
parliament were, as usnal, hissed or ap
plauded, according to the sentiment of the
spectators toward them.
A Sinister Assemblage.
There was another incident which, thuu-a
tot cohucctcu with the ceremonies of open
ing the uiuifiial legislature, was an ut
U nipt to make a Very unpleasant connec
tion between tlie "proletariat" and the M.
P. About .230 wretched looking victims of
poverty and privation gathered on Tower
Hill in the morning and resolved to make
a display of their rags and misery lefore
the lords and commoners in parliament.
The mob hud no settled plan of procedure;
they were too hungry for that, but one mid
all they started in the direction of the par
liament huu"s, the stronger and more res
olute taking the lead. It was a pitiful pro
cession and excited the sympathy and sur
prise of spectators.
Interference of the "Peelers."
The police at first did not interfere,
thinking) that the gathering would dis
perse very sot.n, but when it became ap
parent that tbe famine-stricken wretches
really tueant to make a scene liefore par
liament the police determined to stop
them. A force of constables halted the
proct-ssion at tbe Thames embankment
and told them they could go no further.
The unfortunates huddled together to dis
cuss what they would do. (One of them be
gan to address the others. A stout, well
fed policeman pushed into the crowd and
seized thorator by the neck the fellow
had no collar.
The Clnb Troves the Trump.
Some-of the unemployed got angry at
this interference and tried to fight the
police. A general melee ensued, several of
the rioters being apparently anxious to be
arrested with tbe result of getting some
thing to eat. Tbe police laid about them
wit h their batons and one of the crowd was
so badly hurt that he had to be taken to a
hospital Others were more or less in
jured. The procession was then abandoned,
it being made apparent to the crowd that
they would uot lie permitted to enter the
precincts of parliament.
CHEERED BOTH THE LEADERS.
First Business Tnken I'p in the Commons
The house was but a short time in ses
sion after the queen's speecn was read, and
took a short recess. When the honse reas
sembled Gladstone, upon entering, was
vociferously cheered. He took the oath as
minister, nnd was followed by his col
leagues. Balfour, the Conservative leader,
was likewise cheered loudly by the Con
servatives and Lilieral-Unionists. Cod
dingtou, Conservative, raised an objection
to the action of the government in having
granted the Chiitern Hundreds to Jabez
Spencer Balfour, Liberal M. P. for Burn
ley, who is accused of frauds in connection
with the Liberator Building society and
other institutions. Coddington said that
Balfour had committed enough frauds,
and should not have had such a fa v,t ex
tended to him.
Chiitern Huuereds a Fiction.
Harcourt, chancellor of the exchequer,
replied that the office of stewardship of the
Chiitern Hundreds was a mere fiction and
the government had neither the right nor
the means to inquire into cases of suspicion
before granting it. A writ was issued for
an election in Burley of a.succeseor to Mr.
J. S. Balfour.
Balfour Leads tbe Attack.
At 8:30 o'clock George Lambert, Liberal,
rose to move the address. He spoke to
empty benches, as did also Mark Beaufoy,
Liberal, who seconded the motion. Tbe
house filled like magic, however, when A.
J. Balfour, leader of the Unionist opposi
tion, arose and began a general criticism of
the government. He began with a refer
ence to Egypt and Uganda, and charged
that the trouble in Egypt was the result of
the rash utterances of the prime minister
and the chief secretary for Ireland when
they were in the opposition.
Refers to the Irish Question.
He then denounced the evicted tenant'
commission as so unfairly constituted that
they were incapable of presenting a trust
worthy report. Toward the close of his
speech he demanded that the home secre
tary should say whether or not the release
of Egan and Callan, the Irish dynamiters,
was part of a policy of amnesty intended to
involve the release all the Irish dynamiters,
and he charged Morley, Irish secretary,
with having used the crown prerogative
for political purposes.
The Grand Old Man's Reply.
Gladstone was cheered loudly when he
rose to answer Balfour. He reproached
Balfour for assailing with inflammatory
criticism a bill not yet introduced, and for
doing his utmost to prejudice the minds of
his followers against a plan of home rule
of which he was still ignorant. He would
not reply to Balfour's invective against
Morley's administration of Ireland, except
to say that the wise policy of clemency had
been simultaneous with a great decrease of
crime. Balfour's attack upon the evicted
tenants'' commission recoiled upon him
self. Why did he not wait nntil the com
mission's proposals came before the honse,
when be could urge bis objections with
x- -y-'nr forcer
Salisbury Takes the Floor.
In the house of lords the Prince ef Wales
and bis son, the duke of York, had "Oats on
the cross bench. They remained through
part part of the debate on the address in
reply to the queen's speech. Lord Brassey
moved the adoption of the address. His
motion was secouii by iorti Thring. Both
mover ami setviitier spoke in general terms
in support of the government. Lord Salis
bury, who l-ppeiired in opposition, After
passing compliment on Lord Thring, said
he declined in the meantime to question
the foreien policy of the government. So
far as known in tue absence of official
papers the policy of the new ministry seemed
to be founded on sound principles and to
be executed with judgement and skill.
In Sympathy with Criminals.
Touchine upon the question of home
rule for Ireland Lord Salisbury said that
the one object of the government during
the past six months had been to get the
support of a class of men whom hitherto
rio politician in England had to conciliate.
The keynote of the Irish policy of the gov
ern mt-nt was to get the support of the j
criminal classes. 1 he provisions necessary
to maintain the law had been repealed. The '
prerogative of the crown had been used to j
bhield murderers and dynamiters. All the
acts of the government caused the impres
sion that they were much more in sympa
thy with criminals than desirous of vindi
cating the law. Cries of '-Hear. Hear."

Progress of the Rducation Bills in Both
Springfield, Feb. 1. Bartling's bill re
pealing the Edwards school law was taken
Up in the senate yesterday and a Repub
lican substitute requiring all children to
attend school sixteen week s each year was
laid on the table 2J to 10. Tbe Bart ling
bill was ordered engrossed. Knopf oflered
a resolution for an investigation as to
whether the late treasurer Wilson had
kept the pledge of the Democratic party
in 1800 and paid the state the interest he
received on public funds. An attempt to
suspend the rules and pass the resolution
failed by a unanimous vote amid great
laughter. A resolution on the death of
James G. Blaine was adopted on a rising
vote, and the senate adjourned as a fur
ther mark of respect.
Repeal Bill Goes Over.
In the house the bill repealing the Ed
wards law went over. When the bill came
up Paddock moved the Xohe bill as a sub
stitute. Attempts were made to have the
substitute declared out of order, .but the
speaker rnled the point not well taken.
The Nohe bill was then laid on the table
75 to 71. The repeal bill then went over.
Resolutions in honor of the late James G.
Blaine were adopted with but two dissent
ersBurke of Chicago and Carson of Ur
bana. Bills introduced: To regulate pub
lic warehouses and the inspection of grain;
to increase the rate of taxation in cities 2

tract eoc elusive of the electrical plant and
exclusive of the twenty-six miles of grad

ger of the company, says that a section of
ten or twenty miles of track will be com

dition which will permit of fast running.

like strings, and many of the barges were
crashed and sunk or torn from their
moorings and swept over the falls. The
