TURNED ON LABODCHERE.
LIVELY SCENE AT THE SESSION OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN COMMITTEE. STATI-MKNTS OF THF. EDITOR OF ? TIH'TH" ANGRILY G.???'?G?? AS FA1.SK RY A WIT? NESS? RAKINO OVER Ot.l> r|I,\ROE8. London, May _1.?There tree a dramatic ?cone to dny In the committee-room off *.Yestmlnstcr Hull. The l'nr'iiumentary committee Inquiring- Into the Tiansvaril raid held another eeeaton, and in tbe course of the examination of Mr. Rutherford Har? ris, the former so. rrtary of the British Chartered South Africa Company, at Cape Town, by Henry Labouchere. the witness was asked whether ho had e\?r heard of a ayndttmte erg*aj?aed for the purpose of dealing in the securities of the Chartered Com pony Mr. llnrrls replied: ! asa Riad you put that question. 1 bave giren you a Ions time to prove the charges you made against me." Then, turning to the chairman. Mr. H.inis read an extract from Mr. Labouchere'?? apaech In the House of Commons on May 8, 1d??6, and an extract from "Truth" of May 5, 1896. The extract from "Truth" was an follows: The main ob.lect of the raid was to annex the rich minln?*: districts of the Transvaal to Rhodesia. It is obvious that the first news of the raid would can*.? a fall In shar? ?. 1 am prepared to prove that a syndicate was formed Just prior to the raid, in? cludine: a leading director (Mr. Harris was a dlreetor of the companv. as well as Its secretarv at Capu Town? In and one of th.? chief officials of the Brtttah Chartered South Africa. Company, for the purpose of making large bear sales. The seed having thus been sown for securing a profit by the 1 mmeillate fall and an ultimate profit by rebuylng When the raid was successful and a rich -lice of the Transvaal had been added to the charter land. Bt< ps were taken to carry out the conspiracy. Tho tenor of tbe "cryptograms" shows that there was a divergence of opinion between the Rhodeses (Cecil Rhodes and his brother, Colonel Francis Rhodes? and Alfred Hdi's representatives among the Re? formers, and that those not connected with the gang arare responsible for tho fallur?? of the scheme These telegrama are damaging alike to the Char tered Company and Mr. Rhodes. It is clear that tbe raid was planned by Cecil Rhodes, Alfred Bett und the secretary of thi? Chartered South Africa Company. ' The telegram from Hammond (John Hoys Hammond, the American engineer) to Rhode?, saying "i'annot arrange respective inter? ests without Belt," shows that the aim wa? purely for a Stock Exchange deal. Th<se miscreants, therefore, planning a raid which must have led to the death of many, and which was based on rob? bery, were actually already disputtng in regard to their respective shares of the plunder. "Truth" then compared Cecil Rhodes to Jabes Ralfour, "the first statesman to apply to Imperial politics the methods of the shady company-pro moter," and concluded as follows: Had Cecil Rhodes remained I'remler of Cape Col? ony, I am convinced that as soon as It suited his purposes he would have turned on us (the British Oovernment), and would have sought to cut the chain which binds us to South Afri? a. After finishing reading Mr. Harris turned to the chairman and begged him to call upon Mr. Labou chtre to Justify his statements, "which." Mr. Harris added, "aro absolutely and maliciously false and untrue." Thero was a moment's silence, during which the members of the committee looked curiously at Mr. Labouchere. Then the latter said in a subdued voice: ,, "In order to give proof I ?hall have to cali a number ot stockbrokers before the committee The BecraUry of State for the Colonies, Joseph Chamberlain, thereupon sharply remarked: "1 think It important that you should do so. Replying to Sir Richard Webster, the Attorney Genera!. Mr. Harris reiterated that Mr. LabOU Chere'a statement was untrue from beginning to end The witness next read an extract from the "Oaulols," written last week and signed by Mr. Labouchere. making similar charges. Mr. Labouchere sal '. he was pn-pared to prove the Charges The committee-room wai then cleared In order to allow the committee to dlr.eus? the matter. When the session was resumed the chairman an? nounced that the committee condemnr I Mr. l?ab<?u ohere for commenting on the rai.i While ihe Inquiry was proee? Jing. took notice of Mr. Harris's denial and added that it rested with Mr. Labouchere to take the steps which he thought fit to meet the denial Lord Robert Cecil. coun.?el for Mr. Harris, then asked leave to epeak. He said: "Mr. Harris feels his honor and reputation at F'.ak??. He has now shown that one niemher of the committee ?? actuated by a violently hostile fi-eling t war 1 him, and so long as Mr. Labjuchere Is a member of the committee it is impossible f, r Mr. Harris safely to commit his honor and reputation to the committee." Ti ils remark was greet?-1 with calls of "Or 1er!" A moment later Mr. Harri, refused to be, furth??r exAhUfjed by Mr. Labouchere unless the latter with? dn w his charges. On the motion of Sir William Hareourt the mm mlttee-roooa wa? attain cleared. On resuming busi? ness the chairman said he thought Mr. Harris's posi? tion In the dispute must be wholly ?ailsfactory to h!m. and the matter was then dropped. PROSPECT OF PEACE IN AFRICA.

Mr. McDougall began hi? report 'with the state? ment tha? the report of hia as_ociate? omiU?d what, in his opinion, wa3 necessary Information, essential to Intelligent action by the Assembly, llrt differed also as to the course to be pursued with regard to the two properties in Fifth-ave.?the Lenox home? stead at Twelfth-St and the new Stuart property at Twentieth's*. The committee had decided to confine Itself to a conference with the Hoards of Hom?? and Foreign missione, but Mr. McDougali thought that It was proper 10 consider the history of the acquisition by the Boards Of the two properties -and also ?Mrs. Robert L. Smart's legacies. As the committee had failed to bring these questions before the Assembly or even to consider them, he felt that It was his duty to do so. His conclusion was that the two Hoards should return to the LSBOS homestead as their home, and that the great store and office build? ing should be sold at the proper time and under wise management, and that Mrs, Stuart'? legacies Of pW*jOm), now Invested In the new building, should ba applied to the work of home and foreign mis? sions. Mr. McDougali published letters from John S. Kennedy and Dr. W, B. Htibbard. In which Mr. Kennedy offered to take the Presbyterian Bunding off the hands of the Boards on the basis of Its cost to them, srlth interest adjusted at the rate of d per cent per annum, so that the Hoards could leave the building without either gain or loss of a single dol? lar. This offer was made In September, IMC, but the majority of the Committee Of Eleven reported that there Is now no pending offer from any one to buy the property nor haa there been since tho first meet? ing of tho Committee of Eleven last July. ?Miss Rachel I_ Kennedy'? prn:???t against th? sale of the Lenox property and also her offer to place the build? ing In condition to adapt It to the present ne, ,?s and osea ?if the Hoards were also Included In the mlnor Ity report. GENERAL HARRISON'S ADVICE. Genera] Harrleon said that the question of the NeW-Tork building COUld be disposed of In a short time if the commissioners wouhi look at Its prac? tical aspect, Leaving himself out of the number, be Wlahed to eall the attention of the members to th?? names of the men on the majority report, who were not exceeded in Intelligence, legal ability, business ability ?>r consecration In the Presbyterian Church. Ten of the eleven men said to the ?'hurch, "Let things alone; do not disapprove the action of the Hoards" The speaker would not say that con? ditions might not arise In the business world or In th? religious world which would chantre the atti? tude of the Church toward the building in quei tlon, but, "in the words ot another ex-President," lidded ih?? speaker, " ? condition and not a theory confronts us.' ' it was some time '."fore Qeneral Harri?,,? coni.? proceed, for the commissioners were qutcn to rec Ognise the remark of Ihe other President, who, if not a communicant, is a Presbyterian by birth and mirria:'?.

The steps leading up to the ap? pointment e>f in?- Committee of Eleven were then recounted hastily and the conclusion resetted that the Qeneral Assembly could not hold up the Hoards of Home and Foreign Missions to reproach t.suss former Assemblies had approved th?? action ol these Hoard??, Bret In purchasing the property and then in beginning the construction of ih?? new building He referred to Mr. McDougali'? minority report, which, h?? said, was the threshing of old straw from which nothing could eom?? bul blinding dust. Qeneral Harrison said thai if the question were s new one, Shall the Boards erect a building? he would not say thai the committee would recom? nn nd such a course ?t this time, with business de pri ion prevalent and wlih debts on the Boards, etc but It is not a new question, in?- building is , eted, He asserted siso that the Hoard? could not be censured for s misuse of ? lth'-r t be Lenox or Stuart property, end bseked his assertion with the ,,?.,ii'-l.t that ??? iiieiiil.er?

His ret erence to .Mrs. Stuart was as follow.: "Her legacies to the great causes of home and for? eign missions, so dear to her, were the largest ever g,ven In our Church. As there rise. In vision, a.ong with mv ihaught of her an.l her gifts, the sight of the struggling, ?df-sacrlflcing, heroic missionaries with their families on the home and foreign fle,ds; the debts resilng on these two hoards, their need! for future work and the heroic self-denial an,le?cri flce of the godly men and women of our Cburcn who support these causes, Is it disloyalty to the Master and Hl_ cause to brear he the prayer and ex? press the wish that (?od would so gui?le our Church that umler the leadings of the Holy Spirit this great ofllce and store building not a distinctively Pres? byterian house -with Its secular and worldly asso? ciations, with Its enormous deht.

Rockefeller is taken up en Saturday It is probable that a suggestion offered by the Baptist Home Missionary Society, that all tho Baptist missionary societies combine Snd employ tbe same agents to colleet for all the societies, Will be agreed to. The money thus col? lected Is to be paid Into a g?-neral treasury and divided pro rata among the societies In proportion to the size of the debt of each. This plan, If adopted, will result In a reduction of the number of collectors to such an extent that at bast 175,000 In salaries and expenses will bo saved during the year.

TO TAKE TAXES OF LANDLORD AND TENANT PROM THE IMPERIAL EXCHEQUER?IRISH LEADERS AITROVE THE SCHEME. London. ?May 21.-The First Lord of the Treasury and Government leader, A. J. Balfour, made an Important statement In the House of Commons to? day regarding the Government's policy, which will bo carried out next session, the objeet of which Is to Rivo Ireland an equivalent for the relief In agri? cultural rates given to England. The Government, he said, proposes to ptace both the I'oor law and the county administrations on a broad, popular basis. The landlords must be relieve of all the rural rates. At present the land-owners are liable to half the poor rates, which the Government pro? poses to pay hereafter out of the Imperial fund??. The tenants are liable for the other half of the po,,r rates and tho county cess. ???? Government proposes hereafter to pay the county cess out of th? Imperial funds. This double benefit to two classes, Mr. 1'alfour explained, will enable tho Gov? ernment to launch a scheme for local Kovernment which, he believed, would work safely and smoothly. He could not then give the, details of this scheme, which would place a large charge upon the Kxchequor; but, continued Mr. Balfour, tt was a charge which the country at large and the Cnlonists would not grudge if thereby the-y could see thp way to carry out the reforms to which they had pledged themselves. Mr. Balfour was of the oplnon that every class of the com? munity would be disposed to regard wltn favor what he could not but think must prove on.? of the greateat reforms carried out under the safest con? ditions evr suggested In the House of Commons. ?i.oi.i cheers.) Edward Honry Carscn. Conservative. Member for Dublin I'nlv.rslty ami f??rm.?rly Solleitor-tJen ?ral for Ireland, moved to adjourn the House in order to discuss Mr. Balfour*? statement. He re ferr. d In terms of approval to the proposals of the ? lovernmont. John Dillon, chairman of the Irish Parliamentary party; i'ampbell-lianncrman, Liberal, and John Ue.lmon.). th?? Parnelllte leader, also approved of th?? propose ll of the Government. Mr. ?Balfour said tne money would not Ix? applied to Ireland tills year. Thereupon Mr. Carson re? new?,) his motion to adjourn. London. May 22?"The Times" this morning, com? menting editorially on "Mr. Halfour's remarkable arrd momentous disclosure of policy as to Ireland." say... "We do not venture the prediction of a practical ?ucee?? for this extension of local government In Ireland, but Its establishment will, at any rate, de? molish some plausible arguments for Home Rule." "Tho Daily News" reminds Mr. Halfour that he failed to carry a similar Irish local government bill in U03, and ad is: "Assuming that the bill passes, It will not be In any sens.? Home Rule; but the creation of popu? larly elected councils in Ireland will be a strong liver In tho hands of the Nationalists. We shall watch th.? experiment with great Internet." "Tii,? Daily Chronicle" says: "Already busy tuliKU'-s are saying that the new departure Is another victory for Mr. Chamberlain. If BO, It may be found that the new scheme will blossom out into the full splendor of his famous proposal for provincial councils. Anvway, it prom? ises to help solve some difficult questions; and, tl?, refer?, wo wish It well." NOTES OF THE STAGE.
