OPENING OF PARLIAMENT
The Queen's Speech Read to the
Lords and Members of the
Commons.
Lord Salisbury Puts in Appear
ance as Leader of the
Opposition.
Declares That the Crown Prerogative,
Have Been Used to Shield Murderers
and Release Dynamiters.
Lon.oN, Jan. 31.-Parliament reslsem
bled to-day. The queen's speech contained
no points of special interest beyond those
outlined in these dispatanes yesterday. At
the close of the reading of the queen's
speech parliament adjourned till afternoon.
On reassembling Gladstone took the oath
as prime minister, and was followed by his
colleagues. In the house of lolds several
new peers, including Lord P'layfair, took
the oath. The prince of Wales and his son,
the duke of York, had seats on the cross
bench. Lord Brassey moved the adoption
of the address in reply to the queen's
sposeh. His motion was seconded by Lord
Thring. Both mover and seconder spoke in
general terms in support of the govern
ment.
Lord Salisbury, who to-day appeared in
the opposition, passed a compliment on
Lord Thring. Touohing upon the question
of home rule for Ireland, Lord Salisbury
said the one object of the government the
past six months had been to get the support
of a class of men whom hitherto no politi
cians in England had tried to conciliate.
The keynote of the Irish policy of the gov
:rnment was supposed to get the support of
tihe criminal classes. 1 he prerogative of
tihe crown had been used to shield murder
ers and release dynamiters. All the acts
of the government caused the impression
that they were much more in sympathy
with criminals than desirous of vindloating
law. [Cries of "Hear, hear."] The refer
ence in the queen's speech to home rule was
the most peculiar sentence he had ever seen
in a public document. It seemed to indi
cato that the government's opinion of the
whole Irish question with which parliament
had to deal, was that it was right for one
portion of the Irish to place their heels
upon the neck of the protestant population
of Ireland.
With regard to other measures indicated
in the queen's speech, Lord Salisbury de
alared that nobody believed they will ever
he undertaken. There is simply a repoti
tion of the programme of the liberal con
fe eno at Newcastle. lord .Gelisbury al-'
nued to the agricultural depression and
aaid agriculture suferei most from want
of confidence. Political partisans now
p eached doctrines that were filling the
minds of the owners of capital with appro
hension. The:e was rno country in the
worrld, Lord Salisbury added, where
property was now so fusecure as
.n Great Brrtain, in consequence of
erron.onu legislative action. [Cries of
"hear him." I
Il:o EL I of Kimberly mildly remon
strated with lord SKlasbury for accusiIu
the governmout of haviLe eymi;athv fot
Irel coriminals. He promiael to int oduci
the home rule bill in the lords as soon as II
passed the commons. Whuu the promise
was heard a faint laeuhter rippled over th.
benches. Debate then adjon. ned.
In the commons this evening notice that
Gladstone wouLd introduct h:s home rule
bill Mlonday elicited p:olonged liberal
cloeerin. At 8.,0O Lambe t, lilb al, rose to
move tile address. He spoke to empty
benches, as did Ms k Biiaugers, who
seconLded the motion. The huse tilled like
miLio, however, when lialfour Lirose, and
amlid a sto i of op0)1 oition cheere, began
in a eneeriun tone a paencral criticiem of the
government. In its Ea y tLat policy, lInl
four said the ministers could rely
upon the support of the opposition
as Iong as they upheld British
rights. He trusted the government
would, at the en liset convenience let par
liament kllow thb causes which led to the
recent trouble in Cairo. Among the causes
undoubtedly were the rash utterances made
by the prime minister and chief secretory
for Ireland when they were in the opposi
tion. Ialfour denounced the evicted ten
auts commission as so unfairly constituted
that they were inoapi,ble of presenting a
trustwoithy report. He demanded that the
home secretary should any whether or not
the release of E~an and Callan, Irish dyna
mite a, was tpirt of a policy of amnesty in
tended to involve the release of all Irish
dynamiters.
Gladstone was cheered loudly whel hbe
rose to answer Ialfour. He reriroached
Ilalfour for assailing with inflammatory
criticism a bill nut yet introduced and for
doing him utmost to prTjudlwe the~ inds of
his followers against a plau of home rule of
which he was still ignorant. ]itlfonr had
caked where these wra an empire which
had been etrenuthened by the adoption of
local autonoimy. Gladstone replied that as
Lord Slaisbury had doneo coae yeals ago,
he would point to Austria-llungary. lie
won d also point to the BIritish co:onies,
which sixty years ago were ruled front Lon
don., but demanded separation until self
government was fuinally granted. lie would
not reply to Ilalfour's invective agaiust
Morley's admiumitration in Irelanld, except
to aoly the wise toliey of leniency had
been simuultnnerins with a grent deooease of
acrari.n erilne. :alfonr's attack upon the
evicted tenants oomminsioin would react
upon himself. (Glndstou uiid not believe
that in hls long parliami'ntary career he
ever uttered war s so rash and utangeroun
se were those uitn ed by Italfour coner.n
ing the difltculties in LEgyvpt. T''hose words

would lose no time in getting out of Egypt.
Ialfour rose end repudiated the charge

his version of the affair ,but made a good
witness, telling his story In a straightfor

NO PAROTEST YEi FILED,
So Far England Has Not Intimatec
Any Displeasure Over Hawaiian
Affairs.
Dr. Mott Smith Is Confident Thai
Annexation Will Be Brought
About.
Comlmercial Interest of the Islands Ar_
Altogether With tihe Ulnited States
Chandler's Resolution.
WArnrrxTOx. Jan. 31.-It was stated to
day that the report of last night, that the
protest of England against the annexation
of Hawaii by the United States would be
presented to-day, was premature. It was
said at the state departroment that it had
not been received, and there had been no
intimation that it would come to-day.
Lord Itoseberry's statement to the Ha
waiian charge at London yesterday, that
England, France and GUermanu would pro
test against the annexation of Hawaii by
the United States, is believed to have good
foundation only so far as England is con
corned. The interests of France and Ger
many in that country are not of sufficient
importance to warrant a protest. Dr. Mott
Smith, Hawaiian representative here, ex
pects England to protest vigorously.
He thinks there will be a concentration
at Honolulu, as rapidly as possible,
of the naval forces of England
now in the Pacific for the purpose of mak
ing a demonstration, but it is not probable,
in the opinion of Dr. Smith, that this will
effect the sentiment of the people in any
way. The commercial interests of Hawaii
are practically all with the United States,
and although the sympathies of the native
pepulation, under the influence of members
of the royal family, are undoubtedly with
the English, still the property interests of
the island will eventually control its des
tiny, and that interest is in favor of politi
oal incorporation with the United States.
In congress the situation continues to be
privately discussed by members. Harmer,
republican, member of the house foreign
affairs committee, said to-day: "I approve
of the astion already taken by the repre
seatatives of the United States at Hono
lulu, as it has prevented the gov
ernment of Oreat Britain from
assuming a protectorate over the
Tslands, which would hare resulted
in absolute possession in the near
future, if to avoid which we were compelled
to accept the proposition for annexation at
once. 1 would favor it. Our government
OFunld look to its own interests first, which
treat Britain never falls to do. hi En
ropean power should be allowed to seize
Hawaii at any time, especially while their
representatives are begging at our doors
for annexation. It is claimed that no in
ternational treaty would be violated by an
nexation. France and Great Britain recog
nized the independence of the islands in
1843, and subsequently the United States.
Much will depend neon the developments
of the next few days, but I believe with
careful consideration, keepingAmerican in
terests constantly in view, we shall reach a
conclusion which will be satisfactory to the
people of our country."
TAKR TUE INITIATIVE.
Congress Urged to Meet the Conmmlsstoneri
From Hawaii.
WAsnm.OTOm, Jan. 31.-The senate tool.
up Chandler's resolution requesting the
president to transmit to the senate any con.
vention he may make with the provisional
government of Hawaii, and Chandler pro
ceeded to discuss it. He explained his
motives for offering it. He had not in
tended, he said, that it should be noted on
without consideration by the committee on
foreign relations, and he intended yestr
day to move its rpference to that commit
mittee. It occurred to him, however, that
it would be wise for congress to initiate
action on the subject. The commissionera
from the present provisional government of
Hawaii would not arrive in Washington
until the end of the week and it is fair to
presume the rest of tho week would be co
ca led by the executive in considering the
subject. The fourth of March would
then be near at hand, and so
he thought, on a subject on which
there is sucth unanimity of opinion
among American people, congress might
well initiate action. Amerionn intoeeats
are very extensive in the Sandwlch islands
and the property of those islands is mostly
owned by American citizens. 'he I nited
States government had never shown any
disposition to destroy the native geovon
ment of Hawaii. On the contrary it had
always maintained such government and
attempted to keep in power the existing
dynasty, but at the sams time there had
been a feeling that if the natiyo gove n
ntent should fall, an American solution
would be found for the difficulties on the
islands, but if it should appear that a
stable independent governmieut could not
be maintained, and the support of any
foreign government should be required,
then the sentiment was that the tUnited
States would be willing and desirous to an
nex the islands.
In view of the shortness of the session
and the desirability of avoiding an extra
session he thought action should be taken
on the subject by congress. He thoauht it
due to the commissionels on the way to
Washington that a full and complete starte
inent should be made to them of the Anmer
lcan policy and that ouncress shoulnd be
prepared to state fully and frankly the
iposition of the United States with reference
to Hawaii and to such foreign governments
as might take an interest in the question.
He moved the reference of the resolution
to tie committee on forien relations.
Dolph, republican, of Oregon, said the
time had arrived for a well-deluned, agresa
sive American policy, and proceeded to
read a long stateuent of the population,
trade and coumeroe of the Hawaiian r
islands. 1eforo he concluded the resolu
lion was laid aside without action.

Jan. 31, 1H.:l, will be a memorable one in
the annals of the weather bureau at Helena,
for the reason that the lowest temperature
in the history of the station here was
reached on that day-forty.-one and six
tenths below zero. This was the mark
yesterday morning at six o'clock. It began
to rise after that and at noon it was :; be
low and at three p. m. 33 below; then it be
gan to fall again, and at six p. m. it was :17
below. At 11 o'clock last night Hale's
thermometer registered 40 below, while
Gans & Klein's stood at 38 below. Fortu
nately there was only a light wind, and it
was a clear, bright night, with scarcely a
eloud visible. 'he forecast for to-day is
fair and slowly rising temperatu a. The
cold is now general all over the state, not a
station roporting to Triu INDEPENDoNT last
night being above zero. Reports from
other places are: Great Falls, 25 below:
Kalispell, 11 below; Dillon 17 below; autte.

N. D., 45 below and blowing a blizzard;
Hope, Idaho, zero.
No reports have been received directly
from the range country on the condition of
stock, but stockmen are hoping for a break
in the cold. The deep snow followed by
the intense cold will be fatal to weak stock,
and reduce the strength of those in good
condition, so the latter will be in poor
shape to withstand the usual February
storms.
In Helena yesterday the only people out
were those whose business compelled them
to leave the house. The Rapid 'Transit
company and the Helena Electric company
both had work operating their cars, the
snow of Monday night having filled up the
road-bed. However, they managed to
make their trips with more or less regular
ity. Tho Rapid 'I ransit corn any had the
worse luck on their Harrison avenue hne.
I lie Hrlena company was workiu. all ith

poor are coming in. One case was that of
a widow. who was short of fuel and provi

was called in and he did all he could for
the woman. Afterwards he se eke of the
case and he was given $23 with the remark,
"bhis comes from the boys, who each

many such oases, and when knowin their

WAmliIN.TN, Jin. :11.-- Hpncial. -The
retnb,icmn leaders are holding consultations
rerurding the ndvieablity of organizing
the campaigu, not only for the oonrea
sional electio Iin 1894. Iut for the national
namn: aign of 189c;. Chairman Carter, of the
national republican comminttee, haa been in
the east nearly all winter, and while he Is
keeping very qu(et and is saying nothing
for the public ear, he is doing a great deal
of campaign work that will have its effect
in the future. The most interesting thing
in connection with the republican cam
paign for the future is that the majority of
the republican leaders are not only going to
ask Senator Quay. but bring a strong preos
sure to bear upon him to take charge and
attempt to reorganize the scattered repub
lican battalions for the campaign of 18.!.s
It is said, on what seems to be the
most excellent authority, that even
Chairman Carter is willing to retire
from his present position if Senator
Quay will again take charge of the repub.
lican forces as chairman of the national
ri nublioan commiatee. While Senator
Quay is not personelly anxious, it isn aid,
to do this. the pressure is going to be so
strong upon the I'ennsylvania politician
that it is almost certain in 1]8'9, if be lives,
that Matthew Stanley Quay will again be at
the head of the republican forces.
Senator Quay, however, provided be is
induced to take charge of the republican
campaign again, will have something to say
about the candidates that will head the re
publican ticket. His advice wan not fol
lowed in the fall of 18;12, and the result
was disastrous. It is understood that Quay
still holds to the belief that had some other
man than President Harrison been the
party candidate last year the republican
party would have stood a fair chance of
snccess. It is too early to even guess the
timber that will be chosen to lead the re
publican hosts in 18!16, but it is almost cer
tain that the ambition that President Har
rison is now said to possess to again head
the party will not be gratifiod.
CIVIL SLNDIBY BILL.
Occupies the Time of the Hlouse lost of
the Day.
WASHI~i TON, Jan. :31--When the para
graph of the civil sundry bill making an
avpropriation to continue the building of
the library of congress was reached in the
house Enloe, democrat, of Tennessee,
moved an amendment that preference be
given home over toreign products, when
material of equally good quality of borne
production ia soffered at equal or lower
prices. Cogewel!, republican, of Massa
ohusette, hoped the amendment wou:d be
adopted because it Involved such good re
publican protective doctrine. T'h amond
me!rt was adopted. Bland, of Missouni, gave
notice that hae would demand in the house
a yea and nay vote in the amendment,
as it we plain to him that a democratico
house, which was opposed to protec
tion, should not put Itself up toin
favor of I ennessee marble and in o1.posi
tion to Italian tmarble. louehaunn, republi
can, thnnked God that this democratic
house, even in a nioment of forgetfulnlss,
had dons an American thing, I Lauehte'.]
Enloe said the centlelman from Missouri
nisinterpreted his amendment. It did not
contain any principle of protection.
Ounthwate, democrat, naked: "Does not
the amendment give domestic marble the
advantage of :I5 per cent?"
"That is," Nuggested Mr. Reed, of Maine,
"are you really a democrat?"
