Lord Salisbury moved thc second rending or tho
l'nrn-11 C mm'ssion hill. In n-c-:it fotUA, li ? said,
thr airitation in Ireland had gone uti tara pantile]
lines. Obb party | rofc-->,-el i ?> Mt constitutionally,
and io a certain extent so acted; lin- other party
wn< connected xvith crime, violence, intimidation,
n.-it ihition inui mnrder, Which means were u>p,l to
Intimidate constitutional opponents nml to force
from England the eonc ssion of ;i ehaaga which
BagiBad was not prepared t*, grant. Thoso or
ganizntie r.s had been proteaaedly apart, hut thoy

An impr.-ssion had aaturaTly arisen thru titty
wer- really not so f,ir apart ns thr*. seem*,! to li^.
sn-1 lhal there was complicity or connection be
tween thom. " The Times" had published that
opinion nml BUpported it by bb array of apparent
fnrts in justification. This r\ rited rt scandal ns
a Enoch of privilege "f tbe llonae <>f Commons, j
which body refused lo tr.rit il its such or to
rntir into a eonOic! with thc press. Siill. it
xvns desi nil ile that rm-ans ha provided to dissipate
the scandal. Ordinarily men aeouaed of com
plicitj* in murder tried to clear themsclveB loimllv.
bnt thc gentlemen iBerimiaated refuse to take
Ihat course-, although the Government , Sered then
rvtry nssist.11 nee in its po wit. Instead of taking
Iho case into the courts the cent lomon accused
proposed to refer the matter to a committee of
the Booie of Cootmoafl, B course which xx*as not
approved either by the Government or by the
Hobab. Tho Butter xx-as allowed to rest until
tho O'Donnell trial, which Changed th1* scandal
from resting merely cn a newspaper statement
Into n stat.-ment made by responsible counsel In
a court of Justice. Still the gentlemen incrimi?
nated did not se,k legal redress, alleging that they
distrusted British Juries, li they thought they
could not obtain lustioe in England they coull
hax-e sued in Ireland, but in*-it:'d ,,f adopting thar
course they reiterated tlnir demand for a com?
mittee of rho House ol Commons
Tito Government considered t'i" House Incapable
of furnishing an impartial tribunal where so
much person*.! and political feeling was Involved,
nnd thought it betta again tn resort to an in?
quiry by commission, a bobbm which had proved
successful in the eases ".' the Board of Work..
ihe shelli,*]<i outrages and iii,* charges of electoral
corruption. Ile be.lr.cti th, commission would
iio good hy cvs?ing co ti overflies of tbe ii,o-i
dangerous kind. The Government had full con
BdenCS Uutl jilhtici xx-,mic. !?? done, as it had notii
taatod thr-t- ,.' th-* ablest and most impartial
Judges. Men who should luxe known better
hud impugned rhe Impartiality of the Judges
?elected. These charges had not left the ?
stain on the character af iho distinguished mon
against whoa they weis directed, bul they hud
cox-erod xvith dishonor the lip., which Impugned
them. The co**_ini*s!on would close these ,-ontro
i tunton, It^xxiis not well thal nenhen of rho
House of Commins should !><- a<*-'"i>*d in the
most, solemn manner of having tanpered with
murder. Th** truth should be known whatever
might bo ihe issue. Tho Government was con?
vinced rhar ir had dons good service in driving
irom tho arena ,?! political discussion this foul
luid scandalous controversy.
Baron Herachcli iLibeml indignantly repudi?
ated J.or,) Salisbury's insinuation upoi hi-- |Her
s'hell's tote <"lle; gam for having taken in the
.ion.-*, of Commons a course- which, holding the
viewa they did, they wen bound t<> take. Hr
luanna im-,I il,at his friends wen in no way <h
serving of censure, The Commission bill was un.
fortunate in its origin, scope and object, and in
tin* incidents connected with Ito passage through
the House of Commons. The measure formed ii
mosl novel precedent and one tha! was fraughl
xvith danger. He regretted that a committee 'ef
the ll,him- i.f <'om,'inn-, had nui been appointed.
He strongly protested against the doctrine thal
if newspapers brought charges againsi ti pui'lio
man the accused person rn um be guilty ii rn did
not hnmediatrly sue for libel, lt tba! doctrine
xva-, io be applied it should l?e applied iin partially,
and proof that it xva- not so applied was furnished
by the f;icr that two members ol the Government
lind cone to support, before bis constituents, a
Conservative m, -.:ii>er. against whom allegations
lind been made and never refuted, and respecting
which he had never sued for libel.
The speaker defended Mr. Parnell's course in
not. Mum,' for libel. lb- said thal the mere state?
ment of counsel in an action between two private
persons xvas not i suflicieni foundation up'ii which
lo Institute a Indicia! commission ut inquiry. The
Government had ofT.Tod Mr. Parnell tne hard ;.!
tentative of eitbi r accepting such a commission ,*r
Incurring reproach for shirking an inquiry- In
justice, the inquiry should have br-en confined to
tho char,-' s against tl: ? Irish memliers, but, con?
trary i" their understanding when they accepted
the commissjrn, the inquiry had been extended to
others, involving every one engaged in the League
agitation for tin* last nine yearn. liven the jus
dee of specifying and d tining ii. ? charges had b* q
denied the Irish members, and the commission
xvas allowed to range through all the vague alle?
gations in a tnito of anonymous newspaper arn?
eb's. Bach nu Inquiry xvas fraught xvith tho most
dangerous injustice. In composing the commission,
ans nember, at least, should have been chosen who
was in political sympathy with the accused persons.
Lord Salisbury said that lhere were two
fallacies la Baron HenebeU'a speech. That gen?
tleman had assumed what was untrue, namely,
that the Government had any int 'rest In estab?
lishing the galil of the Irish members, On the
contrary, if it wen shown thai their political
partv was not connected with erinn- the fact,
xvould conduce to thc restoration of r'i,;i ??? ai fl
Quietness In Ireland. Baron Herschel] had also
falsely assumed that the Government bad origi?
nated ihe inquiry, whnreaa, the Irish memben
themselves had originated ir by asking for an
Inquiry by a committee of the House of Commons,
The Inquiry could not be confined to the authen?
ticity of " The Times's" letters or to the conduct,
of particular persona All the facto must be
taker, together.

tho WBten of the BBJ. Crowds, to be sure, of
greeter magnitude, have gathared In honor of
illustrious heroes nnd have Bounded bravos willi
a lustier voice. But the soene on the Starla was
.XCeptional. Its central Bgun WM n 1 a con?
quering warrior, xvhose ams had woo dramatic
victories, nor a highly placed official upon whose
favor any man's fortune depended. He was |ust
simply an ordinary citizen, to vx-hom, of the

than to bid him ? WSlCOBM back," and for no
ntlier reward than a grasp of hil hand and s
smile of thanks,-?this is a spectacle as solitary us
ii is beautiful It Illustrates a saviag tendency
in the popular disposition, a tendency whieh no
amount of sneering st hero-worship can npr ss,
to appreciate real and disinterested patriotism,
to honor distinguished achievement in the public
interest, and to return affection unstinted and
over ardent for that faith in th-' people and that
enthusiasm for the people which an so nncon
Miously characteristic of Mr. Blaine.
It* was a delightful day for ihe exhibition of
patriotic sentiment on the xx-.,tor, where Beith, t
heat nor dust, snnoyed and when the whole i
atmosphere was light and buoyant xvith that *
strange inspiration, the Blaine magnetism The
sun xvas just bright enough to make the day dis?
tinctly cheery, the clou-Is just thick enough to
save it from being oppressively hot, the wind
just strong enough to bring in from lin* ocean
successive draughts of refreshing salt, odors, nnd
the water just active enough to give the boat B
moiion. Then were -conditions that brought
every one's best feelings t*> the surface, aud th" ?
party, sure now that tho object of its long watch
xxas Just beyond tho loxv, dull, mist-sliro:i'l>'l
Hook. whOM faint outlines could be seen from
tbs Narrows, xvas brim-full of good humor when,
before tho sun had risen much higher than Liberty s
torch, it, started toward th.- ma Ihis feeling
of good humor wns general, irresistible, intense.
No ono could escape it. No ono could have desired
to escape it. It xvas felt in every handshake.
It vaia hennl in every laugh. It xvas seen in
every oyo.
'Ihe* party on the St.-irin xv.is much larger than
that which had gone down on the Sloan, either
on Wednesday or Thursday. There was no waste
room ni th*- eal,in ?r mi deck. It wns a distin?
guished company, and .xet, then wen few promi?
nent politicians there. It xvas in no sense a poli?
ticians' enterprise. Tho Republican Club waa
thickly represented, but many of these present
came from other Stales. Several California men
xvere then, eager to tel] Mr. Blaine that they
would carry the Stato anyhow, but by Ins .
majority of 30,000 if he would come out and
lu-ip. The Chicago Blaine Club made the bay
resound xvith their xxild erv, * Bl hi Al l! N ! El 1
Blaine:: 'Huh, 'rah 'rah: 'Bah, 'rah, 'rah: Sh-e

miles away. It never failed to provo'.;,- rcspon
Bive cheers.

Mrs. Jam*, s (i. Blaine, jr., represented the states?
man's family. Several of his friends, including
Congressman Phelps and Mr. Elkins, were early
in tie cabin. General Harrison's partner, Mr.
Miller, iti-tod as the immediate representative of
tho candidate. Colonel Dudley appeared in be?
half of tho National Committee, and Murat Hal?

editors present. Mr. Blaine's welcome was in?
tended more ;is a personal tribute than as a politi?
cal movement, though it was not without difficulty
tin,t the Committee in charge of lt managed to
k,*,*p its character thus simple. Thc fact that
it was ro kept ' \p!.iiiis why so (ew of those per?

Mr. Blaine looked in perfect health. His eyea

lr. Bartlett's Sddren xvas areli delivered nnd
I iii good taste. His reference to Harrison
nd Morton provoked B loag-COntiaaed round of
pplause, only equalled by that brought out by
iis allusion io th*- affeetion of tho ex-ory-day folk,
he whole country over, for Mr. Blaine. There
viis not too much of Mr. Bartlett's speech, and
i was entirely successful in conveying to tho
bib's guest tho true spirit of tho occasion. Mr.
ihiin's was evidently mn-t profoundly stirr* d. His
roioe xvas not frc from huskiness as ho told his

hat Blade everybody cheer was his statement that

In the reception that followed the speeoh-mak
ng Mr. Blaine shook hands xvith everybody ia
hut charmingly oordial way "f his, recognizing
it once all he lind ever MSB before, and talking
cheerily a moment as he grasped each i*ro!fere<l
land. In the meantime the Starla had roached
iii" pier, where Police Commissioner Mot'lave xvas
iraiting willi a earraiga. Mr. Blaine was again
taken away from ins. family, and xvith Messrs.
Bartlett sad Pool ho took his seat in the coach.
His progress, however, through such a crowd as
bad collected on the pier xvas slow. Tho people
were nut t.i l*e cheated out of their chance to seo
him, -and they thronged thickly on all 6idos. A
procession was formed, and xvith it* in front of him
he xxas conveyed to his hotel. Ali along the
route tho crowds collected snd bade him welcome
h..me. j h" windows of every hoon xvere croxx*,lod.
Laborers along the street, cartasea, carpenters,
plasterers, even the filers who xvero cleaning the
-treets, cheered him affectionately, and when he
arrived at the hotel a erowd had gathered that
blocked the wide thoroughfares, all Ballasted xxith
the spirit of welcome. It xxas a triumphal home
