HOME RULE FOR ALL 1
A Progressive Britisher Suggests
a New Scheme
BASED ON THE AMERICAN MODEL.
Four Legislatures In the British Isles and
One Imperial Parliament With Re pre
tentative from All the Colonies Should
Please the Radicals for It Squelches the
Lords Thousands of the Faithful Cele
brate Leo's "nbilee at Rome Slty Thon-,
sand In St. Peter's to Seethe Pontiff Per
London, Feb. 20. A writer in a recent
issue of a London paper proposes a plan
which will give home rule to each of the
countries composing the British empire. He
proposes that each country shall have a par
liament similar to the legislature of one of
the United States, and that there shall be an
imperial parliament composed of represent
atives from the various countries. The
"The granting of legislative and executive
functions to a parliament to be set up in
Dublin only covers a fractional portion of
the question, and it miht very easily hap
pen that, after the creation of an Irish par
liament for Irish affairs, serious complica
tions might arise in other directions, and
as a direct result of the partial dislocation
of legislative functions. If, on the other
hat.d, a general scheme of local parlia
ments, coupled with one general imperial
parliament, could be carried into effect,
then there might be some hope of har
monious work being effected.
Propeaes Four l.oeal Parliaments.
"Suppose four local parliaments in the
British isles; one for England, sitting at
Westminster, with 44)1 members, for the
purpose of legislation on questions purely
English In character; another parliament
of like nature for Wales, sitting at Car
ing at Edinburgh, with seveuty-two mem
diff, with thirty-four member; a sim
ilar parliament for Scotland, sit
ters, and a fourth like parliament for Ire-
laud sitting at Dublin, with 103 members.
Those several parliaments would legislate
solely for the particular countries over
which they were placed, and any questions
which might arise affecting any two or
more of them would lie outside the cogni
sance and authority of such parliaments.
A Leglslature'for the Empire.
"For general questions or imperial con
cern a central imperial parliament should
De established in London, which would
also have the bearing of appeals from any
two or more of the local parliaments. The
members of this imperial parliament
should be drawn not only from the British
isles but also from the colonies, since it is
demonstrable that general imperial ques
tions which would come before this parlia
ment are such as might, and in many cases
undoubtedly would, affect the colonies no
less than the mother country. Take the
case of thi?rjtiez dmaL' iOI.'qeTouSjre
luting to our hold upon that waterway
would hare a very direct bearing upon the
Scheme or Representation.
"If we allow one member of this parlia
ment for every 10O,(;0 of population we get
the numbers from the following table:
England ar.;i"i.(xi t"7"
Vales l."l0.lKin 15
Scotland 4.tmoutM 411
Ireland 4,7tMI'W 47

Newfoundland 3ki,MM 2
Australasia 4,."wi.(i0 4:,
West Indies l.SUMO 11
South Africa 2.1MVJU0 ;i)
Total 50.71 O.UUU io7
Would Abolish the Lords.
"Theimnerial parliament, with it nor
members sitting in London, would have
the sole onlerintr and ennlml of nil mix
tions affecting the federated countries as a
federation, and of any question arising
between two or more of the federal com
munity. It may lie asked, where is the
house of lords? The house of lords is a
missing quantity which would find no
place in the scheme now under considera
tion. Some of the members of that house
would finn seats in the local and imperial
parliaments. The remainder would prob
ably dispose of themselves in the fitting
lields of society and sport."
JUBILEE OF POPE LEO.
The Aged Prelate Appears at St. Peter's
and Performs Mass.
ROME, Feb. 20. At daybreak yesterday
the pealing of church bells announced the
celebration of the pope's episcopal jubilee.
(His fiftieth year as bishop.) By 4 o'clo ck
thousands of pilgrims, priests and citizens
were crowded before the doors of St.
Peter's. At 5 o'clock two battalions of in
fantry in full uniform were drawn up be
fore the cathedral so as to be ready to help
the 200 or more gendarmes in preserving
order. The crowd swelled steadily but re
mained quiet, despite the tremendous pres
sure caused by some 5,000 ticket holders in
their hopeless struggle to get near the
Sixty Thousand People in Church.
At 6 o'clock the cathedral doors were
opened and the foremost of the crowd
swept in. Within half an hour the great
building was packed to the steps. Thirty
thousand pili-rims and 25,000 or 80,0m)
Roman Catholics from this city gained ad
mission. Jiot fewer than 40,00( persons,
many of them ticket holders, were turned
away by by the military who cleared the
spaces round the building so as to prevent
disorder when the Bervice closed.
Leo Received with Cheers.
The pope entered the cathedral at 9:45,
pale but smiling, and apparently in some
what better health than usual. The ca
thedral rang with tumultuous cheering as
the pope was borne toward the altar. He
officiated at the special jubilee mass, inton
ing the opening words of the T eDeum and
giving his blessing in a clear, penetrating
voice. The mass lasted until 10:45, but ap
parently did not fatigue the pope. He re
mained in the cathedral forty-five minutes
after the celebration and then proceeded
to his apartments.
The Great City Illuminated. -
The crowds dispersed slowly. .At noon
most of them had gone and a quarter of an
linllv Uap t.hm rr-it 1 i taw wfh,.uw Vu.1..
day afternoon the Irish pilgrims attended I
service in the church of St. Svlvestor and
were Dlessea ny C ardinal Liogue. The Eng
lish pilgrims, at St. George's, received the
blessing from Cardinal Vaugban. Last
evening St. Peter's and all the other
churches, all the cou vents and hundreds of
private houses are illuminated. The streets
were thronged and the square in front of
St. Peter's were almost impassible.
The Scene in the Cathedral.
The scene at the cathedral was brilliant
and impressive. The interior was hung in
crimson and profusely dressed with flowers.
The pope, in full canonicals, was borne on
the sedia gestatnria up the nave to the
altar, accompanied by a gorgeous proces
sion of richly clad aud bejewelled cardinals
and officers of the Swiss guards. A trans
parency before the Belgian college attracted
a group of Liberals who shouted: 'Long
live Italy," to which Catholics replied:
"Long live the papacy."

Not Worrying About Hawaii.
London, Feb. 20. As far as can be
learned the British foreign oCice still takes
no interest whatever in the American in
tentions regarding Hawaii. The foreign
office was informed of the nature of Presi
dent Harrison's annexation message to the
senate several hours before it was made
public, but ni action was taken either here
or in Washington by the British repre
sentatives. TERIFIC BURST OF A LOCOMOTIVE.

the Islands to the west of us, but also on
those to the east of us, and on the islands
