Eondjn, March 1J. The house of
commons pueted Ilvury Laboucbere's
amendment to abolish the home of
lords 147 to 145 in spite of the opposi
tion of the government.
THE QUESTION OF LA BOB.
Sir Charles E. H. Vlnceut, in a long
speech, moved the amaudtnent of the
Sddress by representing to the queen
that the depression In trade and agri
cultural, the reduction of wages of
workman, the thousand of unemploy
ed laborers, and the continous im
migration of aliens, ought to be called
to the attention of parliament. Sir
Albert Kaye Hollett, Frederick Garnish
and others supported the amendment.
Mr, Mundell, president of the board
of trade, thought the least they
iuterfered with trade the better.
British workmen, he said, were much
better off thau American workmen.
Viucent'a amendment was lost by a
vntn of 1!)2 to 8G. and adlournment was
THE HOUSE OP LORDS.
In the house of lords, the Earl of
Roseberry, speaking to a motion to ap
prove the address in reply to the speech
from the throne, asked tho fullest In
dulgence of the peers, as he had been
forced into the position he occupied by
a sudden call to replace a man of the
noblest energies, who was lost not alone
to the liberal party, hut to the nation.
Lord Salisbury regretted the retirement
of Mr. Gladstone, which, he said, was
a loss that would have great influence
on the' destinies of the natiou. The
succession of Lord Roseberry,1 he said,
was nerfectlv acceptable, seeing that
his lordship bad given many proofs of
his great abilities, But;be tnougut it
would have been better if the govern
ment, instead of adhering simply to
the Newcastle program, had introduced
fresh subjects into Its program. It was
a pity, ho said, that home rule was not
put to the very front. The sooner the
question was decided the better. If it
were true that England would resist
separation to the last, the sooner Ire
land knew of It the better. Tho gov
ernment ought not to put home rule
into the queen's speech year after year,
unless it meant to carry It.
Lord Roseberry sala the government
did not desire to evado the question of
home rule for Ireland, but explained
that it was not mentioned In the qeeen's
speech because it would not be intro
duced this session.
The Times Lord Rosiberry'a Inci
dental admission in replying to Lord
Salisbury, that before home rule
would be conceded, England, as the
dominant member of the three king
doms, wouldjjbave to be convinced of
Its justice, changed the whole aapect of
ailaireand shattered the very basis of
the new prime mlnlster'a policy. In
the presence of this momentous declar
ation all tho rest was wasted verbiage.
It must produce the gravest consterna
tion aa soon as its significance la per
ceived. There is a majority of over 70
agalnt home rule among the Eugllsh
commoners, and when the premier ad
mlta that a declclve result la impossible
unless tho English electorate return a
i.nmn rule ma orlty. he virtually acqui-
taceato the argumenta of the oppo
nents of separation. After summing
up Lord Roseberry's declarations at
the llbcial conference, the Timea saya

There should be good work done at
the Republican primaries in Oregon
this week. Every Republican should
fool that It Is a patriotic duty to party
and country to not only attend his
primaries but to take a personal in
tercut for tho welfare of the party in
selecting the yery best men for dele
gates, and shane up the best and
strongest county, legislative and state
ticket. If this duty is well done tho
groundwork for party success Is laid
and tho party carries with it fresh
rrom the people all tho impulses for re
foim and ail the needful euthuMapui
for success. If Republicans do uot
take hold of tilts and administer the
proper purgatives, or sulphur and
molatees as Chauncy Depew culls It,
aud engage In tho proper semi-annual
lonnimroll of dead timber, the struc
ture becomes weak and rotten.
Oregon Is overwhelmingly Repuhll-
cn. But tlio people nro (jr nan Inn
under hard times and high taxes. Bo
fur as uatlonal aflairs are concerned,
no one questions Republican success1.
In tho elghtstates holding elections
lust fall nearly all of Cleveland's
plurality of 378,000 votes before In
forty-four states wub wiped out. The
Republicans of Ooegon will swell the
tide of victory by electing two Republi
can congressmen in Juue.
When it comes to state ticket and
legislature Oregon Republicanism has
a double foe to meet, Tho wily and
roxy State HouHe King, Governor Pen
noyer, is seeking to direct hla Immense
personal following of tho past against
tho Republicans. Ho will name tho
Fusion governor and capture the legis
lature If possible. Hero Is where Re
publicans must ho on their guard.
In Marlon county there will bo a Re
publican county ticket elected. Repub
licans who have served a term and
given reasonable satisfaction will bo
given o ro-nomlnatlon. For tho new
placea to bo filled a strong and harmo
nious ticket should bo nominated. Aa
all county officers elected next Juue go
on a salary, there la nothing to be said
on that point. Jf thoso salaries are too
tiirrii ilm iiHit legislature can reduce
them but It canuot touch the men who
are elected lu Juue.
Of course, Republicans will not fuse.
They will' stand aa they havo always
stood, an Independent American party
founded upon universal and patriotic
principle of good government. But
there la that within the Republican
party that haa never bssltated to over
throw corruption within the party
when necessary. Iu Peuuoylvanla
with 200,000 Republican majority Re-
publlcaua defeat their own ticket when
It suits them to do so. That Is just aa
true of Republicans of Oregon or

clare our government a failure aud a
a conspiracy against the people, but as
sensible men to get iu at tho root of tho
matter and prevent tho eyll continuing

ties is statesmanship.

Tacoma. March 13. At a consulta
tion between the county commissioners,
the superior Judges and the county at
torney this morning, it was practically
decided to issue $287,000 lu county
funding bonds, by resolution of the
board, and to sot asido as a special fund
to meet the current expenses of 1803 all
taxes received from tho levy of the
past year. It was pretty clearly dem
onstrated that this action would be
legal, and that by adoption of this plan
Pierce county would be enabled to
continue tho machinery of its govern
ment without cessation, by practice of
rlorid economy in all branches of tho
COUnty guvorumoiit. Tha cmiuty enm-
mlssionorsare certain thut th(expenses
or the fiscal year ending yuly l, lBUi,
will bo more than met by tho levy for
county purposes made in 1803, and that
tho surplus arising from tux collections
will bo sufficient to cover tho expenao
intervening between that period and
tho 1st of November next, when tho
tax levy for 1804 ill bo made.
Tho city council has decided toreduco

It la very doubtful, though, irthoy will
bo able to carry out tha recommenda
