A Measure Introduced That Will Be

''he keen interest felt in this now
legislation, which It Is hoped will pro
mote peace and content.ment in Ire
lindl, was shown by t.he c.awded .1louse.
The peers' gallery and the distinguish
ed strangers' gallery were filled and
there has been no such gathering of
members of Parliament since the open
ing of the session. In the diplomatie
gallery sat United States Secretary
1lenry White. an interested spectator,
while almost every Irish peer listened
to Mr. Wyndham's exposition of the
bill. From an early hour this morning,
the stone benches from the louse of
Commons entriane to the doors of the
lobby, were packed with impatient
Irishmen, among whom were niany
presidents. Most of these went away
without, even seeing the inside of the
legislative chamber. the galleries of
which were crowded as has not been
the case for many a day. Michael
Davitt. the "father" of the Land
League, celebrated his 57th birthday by
re-entering the House for the first time
since he censed to be a member, in or
der to hear the Chief Secretary for Ire
land unfold his plans.
For the most. part the Liberal mem
hers sat gum, the applause coming
from the Irish benches. A bush of ex
pectatxion fell on the assembly as John
Rtedmnonl, the Irish leader, rose to
speak. If he refused to countenance
the hill1, its dleathi and plerhaps even
thle governmenPit's downfall, was de
creedl. When the gallerIes of the House
found himil sym pathetic and( non-coin
mnitial, a feeling of relief p)ervadedI all
sides. Whlat Sir llenry Campbell
Banneiman, the Liberal leader, and the
others said had little effect. T. W.
Russell, who with others criticised the
details and var'ious omIssions in Mr.
Wyandham's plan, wound up with a
guttural and reluctant admission that
"it is a great bill."
The passage of the first reading of
the bill wVas followed by the rush to
the lobbhy, where enlsued scenes that
mighlt well mlake the ghost of Parneil
turn in is grave. The tall form of
Lord D)udley, Lord Lieutenant of Ire
land, couldl be seen amidst a crowd of
Nationalists, who scarcely a year ago
would rather hlave suffered anything
thani discussed with the official head of
the IrishI party any question. Beside
Lord D)udhey stood the grizzled litble
SIr Anthony Mellonnell, tile First Na
tionlal Assistant Irlishl Secretary.
Mr. Wyadham, who was heartily
cheered when lie arose to speak In the
House, announcedl at the outset that
the government thlought cash aid was
necessary for the fulfillment of the pro
posed scheme, but it attached, greater
inmportanice to the credit operation
than to the cash operation. HeI thlen
unfolded the scheme, which provides
for advanlces of money for the pur
chase of land by tIle tenants. The ad
vances will be In the shape of cash and
not of stock, but in order to enable
the cash to be raised a new stock is to
be floated. It will be calledl "guaran
teed" 2% per cent, stock and will be
redeemable for 30 years. Mir. Wynd
hanm doubted if $500,000,000 of the stock
would be needed. It will he issuled at
the rate of $25,000,000 yearly for the
first three years and afterwards possi
bly in larger sums. In addition to this
the gover'inment I'proos(d a free granit
of $60,000,000 to be saisedl by additions
to the stock, the interest and sinking
fund which will b)0 bornei by the
