Gladstone Opens the Fight for
Ireland Once More.
HIS NEW MEASURE FOE HOME RULE.
Bo Speakk to Packed Boose and Ex
plains te Bill Two Houses of the Leg
islature, a Viceroy, and a Privy Council
Imperial Supremacy the First Thins;
In the Preamble Irish Members In the
British Parliament The Land Question
Reserved for Three Years Other Polnta
of the Bill Sexton Expresses Satisfac
tion. London, Feb. 14. Gladstone introduced
bis home rale bill in the commons yester
day. When he arose the house was packed,
and of coarse he was londly cheered. He
began by taunting the Tories that they bad
failed both In legislation and coercion and
laid down the principle that there was but
this alternative in Ireland autonomy or
coercion. His preliminary speech was lone
and devoted to defense of his own position
and argument against that of the Conser
vatives, finally he got down to the sali
ent points tof the bill. The principles he
had advocated in 1S?C were imperial unity,
equality of all the kingdoms, equitable
repartition of imperial changes, protection
of minorit ies.
As to Imperial Tnity.
In the first plact, he said, the provision
for imperial supremacy was there. He had
thought it best to put it in the preamble
where it was in the words "Whereas, it is
expedient, without Impairing or restrict
ing the supreme authority of parliament,"
and then the preamble goes on to declare
the creation of the Irish legislature. Glad
stone here said: '"With reference to the
charce, frequently with good faith, made
against us that we are destroying the act
of anion, I wish to challenge inquiry upon
this fundamental point. What is the
essence of the act of union? Hear, hear!
That essence is to be appreciated by com
paring the constitution of things found in
the country before 1800 with the constitu
tion of things now subsisting in England.
Before 1800 we had two sovereignties in
the country. One of those was collective
ly lodged in the king, the houses of lords
and commons of England, and the other
lodged in the king and the houses of lords
and commons of Ireland.'
Limitations on the Lrislatnre.
"Then the bill constitutes the Irish legis
lature. - Power is granted to the Irish legis
lature, which consists, first of all, of a
legislative council; secondly ol a legislative
assembly empowered to make laws for the
peace, order, and good government of Ire
land in respect to matters exclusively re
lating to Ireland in wJ'la Hlilwif. That
power is subject to a double limitation.
First of ail it is subject to necessary and
obvious limitations imposing certain inca
pacities on the Irish parliament, including
all that relates to the crown, a regency, or
the viceroyalty. The subjects of peace and
war, public defense, treaties and foreign
relations, dignities, titles, law and treason
do not belong to the Irish legislature. The
law of alienage does not lelong to it, nor
everything that belongs to external trade
the coinHge and other subsidiary subjects.
Other incapacities are imposed similar to
these contained in the bill of 18WJ. These
provided for the security of religious free
dom, the safeguard of education, and for
the security of personal freedom, in which
we endeavored to borrow one of the modern
ameudments to the American constitu
A Decidedly Important Clause.
"Then coming to exclusive powers we re
tain the vice royalty of Ireland, but we di
vest it of the party character heretofore
borne, by making the appointment run six
years, subject to the revoking power of the
crown. 1 hen also the post is freed from
all religious disability. Cheers. Then
comes a clause which may le considered
formal, although it is of great importance,
providing for the full devolution of execu
tive power from the sovereign upon the
viceroy. Then comes an important provis
ion for the appointment of an executive
committee of the privy council of Ireland.
We propose to make this an executive
council for the ordinary affairs of the cabi
net of the viceroy.
CONSTITUTION OF THE PARLIAMENT
Two Brancliex, ne of 103 Members, the
Other of Forty-eight.
"It has appeared to us to be highly incon
venient to alter t he numbers of the legisla
tive assembly. If we were to increase the
number we do not know what the increase
ought to be. If we were to reduce it we
run serious risks of causing practical incon
veniences in Dublin, especially at the time
when the functions of internal government
come to be newly exercised, and when
probably there will be a great deal to do.
We therefore leave the number at 103 and
we fix the term at five years. We leave the
constituency aa it is now."
Next as to the legislative council, Glad
stone said: "We look to the legislative
council as enabling us to meet the expecta
tion that we shall- give to the minority
some means of freer and fuller considera
tion of its vievss.
Why It! Was Made Elective.
"The next tbfeig is, shall the legislative
council be uoluinated or elected? MTe
came to the conclusion that a nominated
council would be a weak council. Admin
istration cheers. If it should be made
weak the council would probably enjoy a
very short term of existence. We, there
fore, propose an elective council, believing
it to be the only form wherein we can give
any great force to the vitality of the insti
tution. We propose to fix the number at
forty-eight wih an eight-year term of
office, the term (if the popular assembly be
ing lesser." The council constituency was
composed of persons with a ratable value
of JQ, but no voter could vote in more
than one place. There was no provision
making the council alterable by Irish act,
but Irish act could alter the assembly in
respect to electors and constituencies after
Deadlocks and Appeals.
In cases of deadlocks that is, where the
assembly passes a bill and the council re
jects it, the assembly again passing it after
an interval of two years, a Joint session
must be held and a majority of that session
to the validity of laws lie to the privy coun
cil of the viceroy, under the initiative of
the viceroy or secretary of state, and
in composing this privy council, or judicial
committee, due regard must be paid to the
different elements of nationality.
In Case of a Clashing Law.
Then there s a clause the effect of which
Is that if the irish legislature should pass
any act in an. way contrary to acts of the
imperial parliament, such law shall ba
rood except in so far as it is contrary to th
Imperial enactment Gladstone then said
"We are now coming to the importan
question of the constabulary. We propo
a gradual reduction and the ultimate dis
solution or disappearance of that fori
with the discharge of every obligatiof
towards them'in such a way as will no
adversely affect the interests of thai
honorable force.'' During the period o
transition they are to be under the contro'
of the viceroy. It is contemplated that thej
will be replaced by a force owing existence
to the Irish authorities in local areas.
Irish Representation In Parliament.
Gladstone then took np the question o.
Irish representation in the imperial parlia
I p)e of tn
incut, ne am not consider It. a linn nrinr-l.
e mil, ont a matter which enl
oeepiy into the composition thereof. Ire
land should have a voice in imperial mat
ters. but having a parliament of her own
to look to purely Irish affairs could not b
permitted to interfere in purely British af
fairs. The difficulty was to differentiatf
the two matters what were purely British
and what purely imperial? and he did not
think that question could be answered
with perfect correctness. The question in
volved both the number of Irish members
and their power in parliament, and the
first question was how many Irish mem
bers shall there be?
Eighty Members from Ireland.
The population of Great Britain had in
creased, while that of Ireland had dimin
ished, and had now reached a point that,
whereas formerly entitled to 103 members,
it would, according to this same ratio, now
have eighty. There ought to be a general
determination to interpret full representa
tion as meaning representation according
to existing population. Speaking of full
representation then, he implied that the
representation in the honse from Ireland
would be composed of eighty gentlemen.
Of course.it followed that there would have
to be an election.
LIMITATIONS ON THE IRISH VOTE.
Four Cases in Which Irish Members Are
Excluded in Parliament.
He discussed the question of British and
imperial interests what they were with
out arriving at any decisive conclusion,
but said limitations in ' the Irish voting
power in the imperial parliament had been
confined to the following exclusions: First,
from voting on a bill or motion expressly
confined to Great Britain; second, from
Toting on a tax not levied upon Ireland;
third, from voting, em a vela on atiproprja
liwa at uuwita ' mWt U mj"ThUu for thV im
perial service; fourth, from voting on any
motion or resolution exclusively affecting
Great Britain. To the above a paragraph
was affixed as follows: "Excepting and un
til parliament shall determine the coming
Ireland's Share of Expenses.
Olntlstone continued: "The principle to
which we are bound to give effect in Ire
land is: Ireland has to bear a fair share of
imperial expenditure "Hear! hear!". The
word imperial is defined in the schedule
which gives the list of imperial burdens.
There are three methods in which this fair
share may lie apportioned. The first
method is the lump sum payment adopted
in 1H6. Another method is what may sim
ply be described as the method of a quota
that is to say that Ireland shall pay 6 per
cent., or 5 per cent., or 4 per cent, or what
you please of the imperial expenditure
which shall be taken out of the common
fund. But there is a third method, which
one we adopt, that of deducting from the
Irish revenues the amount due England."
The Amount of the Payment.
As to the amount of the payment Glad
stone said it had lieen fixed at 2,430,000
yearly, and added: "The Irish members
will observe that everything of a practical
nature we hand over to them. Though the
rates of excise and the post and telegraph
rates will lie a fixed amount, the authority
and the whole control over them will be
absolutely in the hands of Irish officers.
Questions may arise such as: Shall we
obtain from Ireland a fair share of assist
ance in a great imperisl emergency? I, my
self am bound to say that I think there is
very little to fear from trusting the patri
otism and liberality of the Irish legislature.
Opposition cries of "Oh! Ohl" and cheers
from members on the government benches.
Afraid Ireland Will Be Too Generous.
"Stinginess was never a vice of the Irish
people, and if we look forward very much
I am afraid her suffering will be due to
generous extravagance rather than to
meanness.. When we come to. a state of
war we have to look to three sources cus
toms, excise, and income taxes. With re
gard to customs we propose to leave them
in our hands, so that there can be no diffi
culty in adapting contributions so far as
customs are concerned. With regard to
excise, we have in view a proposition to
retain considerable control in our hands
which considerable oower will enable Great
Britain to make sure of having aid from
Ireland if she thinks such provision neces
sary." Close of Gladstone's Speech.
This ended the explanation of the bill
and in a few words Gladstone closed with a
plea for real union and an end to dis
cord. He said: "Let me entreat yon
if were my latest breath, I would so entreat
von let the dead bury the dead, and cast
behind yon former recollections of by-gone
evils; cherish, love and sustain one another
through all the vicissitudes of human af
fairs in times that are to come." Pro
longed Liberal cheers. In reply to a
question Gladstone said that the land ques
tion was resurved to the imperial parlia
ment for three years.
Sexton Inclined to Accept.
Sexton, anti-Parnellite, then rose and as
a general thing accepted the provisions of
the bill. He did not thins: Irish members
would be any trouble ic parliament once
they had home rule. In the lobbies the bill
was generally endorsed by anti-Parnellites
and Liberals. The Tories said it was more
sagacious and better drawn than the first
bill Liberal Unionists would have none
of it at all.
