tion Rnssel I and Carter Talk.
IxxiHx. Aoril 7. The tralleries of the
house of commons were full, but the house
itself was not crowded when Gladstone
arose yesterday to move the second read
ing of the bill to establish home rule in Ire
land. Gladstone said that the government
had no intention of amending the bill as
presented, except in some minor particu
lars. He earnestly desired to bring home
to the mind of the house the question when
this great controversy was to end. Cheers.
He did not address the question to the op
position in a spirit of assumed superiority,
but he would rather press it earnestly up
on their hearts and understandings as a
natter in which both sides were equally in
terested. No Alternative Offered.
For many years the question of Irish
home rula had blocked the way of legisla
tion. The Liberal party had offered a so
lution; but when they asked their oppo
nents where all this was to end they rare
ly obtained an answer. Certainly the op
position rLad not yet ventured to point
out a process whereby the greatest of Irish
questions should be decided apart from
the way in which the home rule bill pro
posed to decide it. Cheers. Gladstone
proceeded with a historic development of
the rise and the causes of the demand for
Irish home rule.
Declares a General Principle.
As soon as the voice of Ireland was heard
in parliament the constitutional movement
for self government commenced, and it had
never ceased and would continue until self
government should be granted. "Iet the
house," Gladstone continued, 'look at the
spectacle the world offers in regard to its
unions. In the civilized world no incor
porated union effected and maintained by
force has ever prospered. That is a chal
lenge of some boldness. Is it too bold?"
Here Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Conserva
tive M. P.. interrupted Gladstone with the
remark: Take the case of the United
Sir Michael Knocked Out.
Gladstone "I said incorporated union.
Liberal and Irish cheers. You missed
the essential word. Hear, hear. Hol
land and Belginm tried incorporated union
and after Ja precarious existence of fifteen
years a divorce was effected. Austria
and Hungary tried incorporation and after
years of sad experience they found the
choice Jay in giving it up or the empire.
Cheers. Russia incorporated Poland.
Take yonr stand thereon if you think fit.
Let the opposition make it the model of
their - operations. Hear, hear. To all
unions but one principle can be applied,
and that is whether they require perma
nent maintenance by force. If when the
force disappears harmony remains the
union is good. If the maintenance of the
union by force actual or-in reserve is
necessary the union is questionable." -Autonomic-
Union Alone Successful.
"Unions not incorporated but autono
mous have been attended in all cases with
success, sometimes complete and always
considerable. Thus Austria and Hungary
under their present union, Norway and
Sweden, Denmark and Iceland, Knssia
and Finland are illustrations. The most
complete success was the German federa
tion where each state had its own powers,
the union only affecting imperial inter
ests. In the United States each state bad
its own rights and any one in America
daring to interfere with those rights would
be regarded as a madman. The colonies
had some points in common with Ireland.
The disaffection once permeated them, but
a remedy was found in self-government."
able gentleman was still speaking when
the debate adjourned at midnight.
THE BEHRING SEA ARBITRATION.
Russell Completes His Speech
Replies to Him.
Paris, April 7. The Behring Sea court
of arbitration yesterday occupied itself
with a further series of arguments tela
tive to the admissibility of the supplement
ary report of the British commission. Sir
Charles Russell urging its admissibility
discussed the meaning of t he word evidence
according to its use iu English and Ameri
can law, wi'h regard to the interpretation
he assigned to it in the arbitration treaty
of 1SU-J. In closing his answer Russell con-lt-iultl
that the objections ot the I'nitisl
States to the supplementary reiiort on th
ground that it had not been subject to con
trol or cross-examination, applied equally
to a large mass of the evidence in the
United States counter-case. For instance,
four reports made by Captain Hooper, con
cerning seal life in the Vribyloff islands
had been incoriorated in the counter case.
although these were evidence of the kind
to which the United States had objected
when it came from Great Britain.
Englaud KaiHine " Protest.
These reports, like i;t ft t t lter similar
matter, had been used .u the AisM-rican
case without provoking the slighteM. pro
test from Great Britain. The supplemen
tary report, which Phelps had asked to
have excluded, did not contain any new
facts, but simply the results of a re-exam-
inationof well-known facts. In conclu
sion Russell urged upon the arbitrators
the necessity of determining the question
of right before dealing with the regulation
ol the seal fisheries. Ihe British consuls.
he said, would do their utmost to make
this course of procedure prevail.
Carter Takes l"p the Discussion.
In opening his address in reply to Rus
sell Carter remarked that it was not a cus
tom of the American bar for the counsel
to introduce his own personality in a case
so as to lend weight to his arguments;
therefore he himself would not follow the
example set several times by counsel for
Great Britain. Proceeding then to the
question at Issue he pointed out that when
the United States delegates nrrjyed in
Paris the cases, as far as argument was
concerned, were finished and both cases
and counter cases had lon 1hh-u closed.
The United States govern u.rul, therefore,
never imagined that furiher evidence
would be adduced.
Uncle Sam if as Reason to Complain.
The United States government was of
the opinion that it had much reason to
omplain of Great Britain's conduct in the
ease, but this had been passad over. That,
bowever.after the case had been submitted
additional evidence should be brought for
ward was a contingency which had never ,
been contemplated by the representatives ,
of the American government. They ad-
niitted that further oral argument might
be necessary for the purpose of elucida
tion, but surprise was the least of the emo
tions they experienced when the supple
mentary report was introduced.
Time for Xe Evidence Past.
They believed that the only thing to be
done was to ret urn these documents, as the
time for submitting new evidence was long
past. "We would not impute bad faith to
the British government," said Carter, "nor
charge the British delegates with entering
upon this case saying: 'We will teach these
Yankees a trick worth knowing.' At the
same time we hold that our opponents pro
ceed on an erroneous interpretation of the
treaty of arbitration." Court sthen ad
journed for the day.

HICKS-BEACH MOVES REJECTION.
He Holds That One Party to the Union Is .
The rejection of the home rule bill was
moved by Sir Michael Hicks-Beach. He
taunted Gladstone with having made a
Ions excursion into Irish history when he
was expected to answer the multitudinous
criticisms of the bill. Since the character of
the measure had become known the most
intense antagonism had developed against
it In a large part of Ireland the people
were irreconciliably opposed to all details
as well as to the principle of the bilL The
north of Ireland rang with protests against
the prime minister's agitation.and he would
not even pause in his retrospect to answer
the arguments of the men behind it. The
prime minister had said that the home rule

years. J ' I
On Party to the Bargain Ignored.
This was, not true. Before the bill wan
introduced last February only the vaguest
statements as to its proposals had been
- made.' The assertion was made frequent
ly that Ireland demanded home rule; that
her electors had accepted home rule. This
was only partly true. The majority of
Irish electors had demanded and accepted
- it, bat a . lars and .determined minority
had decided to have none of it. Neverthe
less, admitting a unanimous sentiment in
Ireland for home rule, the proposal for the
dissolution of the union was rejected by
the other party to the bargain.

The majority of the electors of Great

child the entire distance. On arriving at
the lonely spot the man knocked her down
and assaulted her. He then tried to mur
der both the mother and child and left them
at the strawstack believing them to be
dead. Mrs. Frost says that as soon as the
man released her he seized the child, which
was sitting on the straw near them and
kicked it upon the head. He then turned
and also kicked her a heavy blow. She in
stantly feigned unconsciousness, but did
not faint, although her assailant seized the
child and beat her about the head and
body with it.
Thought They Were Both Dead.
Finally he l-eame satisfied that they
were both dead, and the woman heard him
say with an oath: "There, 1 guess yon will
never tell anybody about this." Mrs. Frost
remained quiet until satisfied that he had
gone, when she turned her attention to her
little girl, who was unconscious. She was
a mile from home with her baby, which
she believed to be dying; her bare feet were
badly cut by walking on the track out
there and she was suffering intensely.
