Ix)XnK, July 20. The liaud -to-hand
conflict in tlie house of commons has made
a deep impression throughout the country
and on every side much rer.-t is ex
pressed t. a! the nfTair should have oc
curred. The matter came up in the house
on a ;iteslion asked by Hunter, Liberal
for North Alierdcen, who desired Glad
stone to appoint a committee to inquire
into the affair. Gladstone said the ques
tion was one of Greatest delicacy. The
occurence, he added, formed a very serious
fact in the history of the house, lie
would consider the point and Rive an
answer v.:-- week ia regard to the ap
point ii cut of a committee of inquiry.
T: l-.U 11 a Fun l:iti' oflluMhi.
Much space on the editorial pages of the
London dailies is devoted to comment on
the fight in the house of commons. The
Times says: "Mr Uladsf mo must feel
some qualms when he looks upon the
working out of his latesi achievement.
The suppression of free debate- hy the tyr
annical vote of the majority is worthier
of the French revolutionary convention
than of tlie English louse of commons.

"It has beaded the minority, deprived of

The Standard says editorially: "We had

that disorder i:i our legislature never

cannot longer flatter ourselves thus. "We
must in the future rcnoim e t.he privilege
of observing from a pinnacle of conscious
dignity the affrays in the colonial assem

HOW A GLADSTON'AN ARGUES.
The News Holds the Tories All and Kn
tirely to Itlnme.
Ths Dafly News (G'.adstonian) gives this
view of the trouble: 'When the public
learn how the "isturbance arose there will
be a universal feeling of indignation and
regret that the most illustrious statesman
of the age was exposed to insults as those
flung by Mr. Chamberlain. To compare
Mr. Gladstone with Herod at the awful
close of his career met the warmest ap
proval of thi opposition. To refer to Mr.
Chamberlain as "Judas"' was an outrage
to 1 resented with violence. It is note
worthy that whereas Mr. O'Connor apolo
gized, there was no hint of apology or r -tr.
ction from Mr. Chamberlain and his
abettor-. Mr. Ckamlierlam knew and
probably intended all that was meant by a
comparison of the prime minister with
Herod. The people of the country will re
sent the insult in a manner which may
cause Mr. Chamberlain and his friends re
gret for the rest of their political lives."
Two I nionist I'apers IMIler.
The Daily Chronicle, Unionist, saysthat
Chamberlain must bear the responsibility
for the seem . "While Mr. Gladstone's ep
ithet devil's advocate for Mr. Cham
berlain was playful and perfectly good
natured," says The Chronicle, "t he other
was nncourteous and unwise and issued
from a bosom in which Mr. Gladstone's
fdiaft was still rankling.''
The Daily Telegraph, Unionisj, finds
411 Mr. Gladstone the cause of the trouble.
"The members of the opposition," it says,
"were justly exasperated by the brutal
despotism under which they had Buffered
for a month and were provoked beyond
endurance by the usual insolent outcries
below the gangways."
A Tory Kxplanation.
The St. James Gazette and several other
Tory papers contend that Chamberlain"?
reference to Herod was aimed at Glad
stone's flatterers more than at the prime
minister himself. "Mr. Gladstone has
turned the house of commons into a bur
lesque of parliament," says the Gazette.
"How then can he expect the members to
act with dignity and self-control?"
New Qualifications for Members.
The Globe, Conservative, says; "It is
not a case for discrituination between
parties and factions. Every incident was
disgraceful and humiliating. Only one
lower depth is attainable, namely, the in
troduction of bowie knives and revolvers.
If the warning be forgotten men with
characters to lose will uot go where there
is risk of losing them and future members
of parliament will have to be found among
the ready of fist and insolent of tongue."
S1AM CAUSES SERIOUS ANXIETY.
Gladstone Gives 1 1 a Visit to Consider
Lonpon, July 2t. The Central News
makes this statement: "There is some
what serious anxiety iu political and gov
ment circles anent Siamese affairs. Mr.
Gladstone, therefore, has cancelled his in
tended visit to Stuart Kendel. M. P., at
Hatchlaods place, near Guilford. Lord
Koseberry is closely engaged in the for
eign ollice morning and night. This even
ing he was iu consultation with Sir H.
McCartney, secretary of the Chinese lega
tioniu London. Official telegrams are
exchanged and special messengers are
traveling uninterruptedly between Lon
don and Paris."
General Roberts, recently commander-in-chief,of
the army in India, received the
freedom of Glasgow, and intcndedto make
a tour thence through the Highlands.
Now, in response to'a special request, he is
returning to London. The Central News
suggests that ho has !e?n called back to

The ISangivok correspondent of The
Times says: "The prompt enforcement of
the blockad which virtually damages
only Great llritain. has seemingly con
vinced the Siamese that the assumed
friendly attempt at intervention by Great
Hritain in Paris has not availed to modify
the hard conditions of ths ultimatum.
Siam, theref' e, will probably concede im

Ci:ii .o, duly The object of the
convention which will meet in this city
Tuesday as given out by some of
t' es in the ni vement, is to gather to

This is the tasU those interested in the
movement represented ia the coming con

and they appear to have no doubt of their
ability to accomplish their object. One of
