Iu this cnno thorn was an Interval of about sis ''-'"rfi ad sit weeks from ilissolutlou to j dissolution, Tho ensuing elortlou was an ),., unplonsiiit &m prise to Lord Deacons- yirtn, :I19 Liberals being roturnod against &j 2U Cousen-atlven and CO Homo llulew. Mr. Mu OjiAusrosit now roturnod to ofileo, lu Ing a tuojority-ol 18 over Conservatives and jhc-a ,. ....,yr m. HomoKuIorfi united. Nevertheless, in tho tlrat iwlf of 1835, owing to tho dissatisfac tion and consequent abstoutlon from voting of somo tnombera of his own jiarty, ho was beaten by a coalition of Conservatives and I'arnellltcs, and ho thornnpon gave way to Lord .Sai.ihih;1'.y. This Parllamont was not dissolved, however, until Doccmber, 1833, thus leaving an Interval of llvo years and nltiomouth86luoothoprcccdlngdlEsolullon. In tho Houso of Commons chosen In Do ccmber. 1885, tho Llbci ids and Paincllltos had ostensibly a very largo majority over tho Consorvntlves, but when Mr. Glaustonk brought in his bill for tho better govern ment of Ireland ho was defeated, owing to tho secession of n largo body of his follow ers. Parliament was then Immediately dis solved, nnd in tho subsequent cloetlon tho Tories nud their allies, tho Dissident Lib erals, obtained a groat preponderance oor tho Oladstonlans and Parnellltes. Tho House of Commons then chosen might un der tho statutu havo lasted until Juno. 1893, but. aa It happens, itwill fall short a twelve month of tho full septennial term. Tho day deslgnnted for dissolution, Juno 20, is nl most exactly sis years after tho break up of tho Parliament which wltnossod tho in troduction of tho Homo Rulo bill. Tho now oloetlons must, according to tho statute, bo all com plotod within thtrty-flvo days after tho dato flxod for dissolution. Tho friends of Iiclnnd on this eldo of tho Atlautlo can, thoroforo, Judgo for thom selvcs how much tlmo thoy havo to got to gether and rocovor tho ground which has been lost. Thoy cannot now protend that theio Is any uncertainty about tho warning. Tho tlay is fixed, beyond which all their 10 glet and compunction for wasted opportu nities will be In vain. If thoy moan to do for Irolnnd what thoy did In 183 nnd 1830: If thoy wish tho Nationalist mombois to keep the elghty-llvo Iilsh scats which thoy now hold, they must act at once without frittering a moment In dissension or delay. Tho money needed for the election oxpenses of tho Iilsh Nationalist party must bo col lected and forwarded boforo Juno 20, or it will anivo toolato. The boroughs elections, be It lemombered, Immediately follow n dihholutlon of Parliament, tho county elec tions taking place a littlo later. Tho Unionists hnvo already glvon notico that thoy intend to contest every sent In Ire land, a courso which will compol ovory Nationalist caudldato todoposlt beforehand tho statutory costs In order that ho may bo oted for. Wo havo brought theso facts be fore to tho attention of Irlnh-.Vmcricnns, nud if wo recall them now It is bocauso there Is no longer any doubt that tho need of hooding them Is Impcintlvo, and that tho docloho strugglo is at hand. Tho Cnmcru at tho Fair. Wo have not soon Immediately any of tho onormous correspondence porpctrated by tho Hon. Benjamin Durcxitwonm in behalf of tho World's Columbian Exposi tion, of which hois Secretary: but wo ven ture to say that no slnglo lottor belonging to It calls for contradiction and repudia tion moro emphatically than that lately nddrcssod to tho Now York Society of Amateur Photographois regarding popular photography at tho coming show. Mr. BtJTTEiiwoitTH was a veteran ready to retire from politics when tho American publlo took up that delightful industry, bota as an artistic and fas cinating amusement and as a precise and lasting moans of recording incidents and scenes whose memory would bo valua ble. Undor his circumstances, Mr. Butter worth has not had the slightest chance to comprehend tho wlshos and footings of the Immonso body of citizens, old and young, against whom ho assumes the unwelcome attitudo outlined in tho following letter, dlrocted by him to tho Socrotary of tho Now York Amateur Photographers : " Your favor of tho 24th Init, relative to the right to photograph object of interest at the Exposition, wal presented to the Executive Committee of the World's Columbian Exposttlun yesterday, and the matter dis cussed at length. The photographic privilege at tha Exposition is re garded as very valuable, and la one nf the sources to which the Exposition must look forth reimbursement of tho heavy expenses entailed upon it While it was the desire of the committee to meet the wishes of the Mry large and Influential body of amateur photogra phers of this country In the matter referred to, the very fact that this class Is so numerous was deemed a serious objection to granting the permits you desire. as by so doing, the value of any photographlo prlvl leges that might ho granted would be seriously lm laired, if not wholly dcs(ro)ed. Neither (was it deemed possible by the coinmllteo for the Exposl tion to discriminate botwecu those nho wcro and those who were not amateurs in this art. "In view of these facts the Executive Committee reaffirms the action of the Committee on Ways and Means, and directs me to express Its regret at the in. ability to comply with the u Ishcs of your society." We believe that. If Mr. BwrrEiiwoitTH had really been ablo, ei en approximately, to es timate tho number of cameras In tho hands of tho American public, ho would havo thrown ovor tho notion of confining tho Columbian photographlo privileges to a small profes sional sndlcato as involving an insupport nblo and Imposslblo monopoly. Siuco tho original taming of tho dog, mankind has acquired no companion so pleasing or bo universally accepted ns tho photo graphlo camora. Leaving out tho Im mensely Import jr.t part photography plays in tho IUghor branches of science, It Is to day, in Its slinplor and less pretentious para phernalia, ono of tho most distinct and evor prescnt maiksof clvlllzutlou In ovory por tion of tho globe. It has becomo a house hold institution of Inllnito charm and sub stantial value, appreciable equally by youth and ago. It should bo encouraged by every Intelligent Inlluenco that may fall Into relation with It. Tho managers of the Chicago Exposition aro adopting a conspicuously unwlso policy of economy In dociding to shut out aumtour camoias for tho 6ako of rais ing rovonuo from a few favored profes sionals, Thoy would rob tho Exposition of onoof its mostaltraetlvo features for count less thoubiinds of expectant visitors. Re bellion against such a shortsighted, proba bly lllogal, nnd certainly oppressive re straint would extend beyond tho ranks of actual photogiapheis to tho vast public which has learnod to tiympathlzo with their enthusiasm and to prnllt from It. Anyone who has eutot cd tho door leading tothoascont of tho LllVel Towor with hi& kodak over his shoulder, aud has becu fm cad to leave It with the doorkoopor know the lively sense of revolt ugalnst such ail nrbltinry deprivation. To apply a similar despotio aad uviuIcIoum restriction at tho Exposition hold on the tour hundredth anniversary of tho disco very of Ainorica, i,nd in the liundiod and seventeenth year of our Independence, would bo altogether too vlo'ontly contrary to tho spirit of tho tlmo nnd of tho occasion. Tho right to tako a hand camera into tho grounds of the Fair Is as stmplo as the right to enter upon tho presentation of a tlckot. "Buclr n con UIwuk'o Isto-dny as natural an accompani ment of an American citizen us hlu hat or cano.

Pub lic convonlonco. of courso, is superior in importance to tho gratification of any nrtlatlo hobby. So far as tho omntours nro concerned It may perhaps bo nocossnry for tho authorities of tho Chicago Fair to Intordlct vho largor camoras whoso set ting up nnd adjustment rcqulro moro or less space. Tho mnnngomont may ilnd it necessary to draw tho lino nt machines with tripods, aud to limit tho freedom of tho grounds to such camoias ns aro carried undor tho arm, and aro cnpablo of bolng worked in no moro than elbow room. But tho right to boar nnd oporato thoso has grown into tho fundamental lawof tlto land, and It Is to bo maintained ngnlnst ovory othor consideration. Wo very much doubt also If It will sorlously dlmlnteh tho vnluo of llconsos to mnko tho groat pictures which Mr. BtrrnaiwonTH may properly rosorvo for professionals. Upon the photography question tho Ameri can publlo 13 solidly ontl-monopollstlc, and If tho directors of tho Fair nro wlso. they will rocousldor tho decision expressed In Mr. UuTTERWoimi's letter and admit tho camera with tho camorlst.

Paumn Taws wroto tho "Poetical History of CnABi.n.MAasn." n volumo de voted to tho myths tho poets mado about tho great Prankish Kaiser. It gocms to us that somebody ought to bogtu to collect material for a Poetical History of Qiioveb tho Largo. Around that capacious form tho mist of Mugwumplau myth hasgathored; nud through that mist tho lyres of many Mugwump bards aro hoard tumultously twanging. Dr. William Evehett has hymned tho Mugwump Bird, which Is but a manifestation, mi emotion, ou icon of Groveh Le Gnos. Mr. Edoaii Fawcett has celebrated tho tamo mythical themo lu verses mystical and mighty, but, unfortu nately, dlfllcult of comprehension to persons who road only English. Mr. Geoiioe Fred Williams, tho Dodhnm Daniel, was ouco inspiied. perhaps nt a Massachusetts Ito form Club dlnnor. to Mugwumplnes which tho woild would not willingly loso: but just as Dante knocked out Cino pa Pistoja and Guido Guinicelli. so hasMr. Jons' Homeii TAFrof Boston knocked out Williams and Everett anil FAWwrrr. Mr. Tait, aroused, as he kindly explains to tho public, by "editorials in tho Boston HeraUt, especially that of May 17, 1892. bearing tho caption ' And tho South Also,' " has built a Campaign Anthom, " dodlcated t ox-President Groveii Cleveland," and it is a romarkablo production. If wo aro unable to admiro tho subject as much as tho author does, at least wo will not rofubo to bestow upon Mr. Tajt's anthom tho at tention which it dosorvos. Ho is n littlo bold, abrupt, obscuro, but, then, whnt a muscular stylo tho man has. Thero aro only llvo stanzas to tho anthem, but thoy aro so poworful that It would bo Imprudent to allow our renders to tako moro than ono at a timo. Iu number ono wo see tho Convex Oraclo as an otblcal convexity, a moral teachor, an oxcmplary political captain : " Hall ' to tha man whose destiny leads us To adopt, weat or woe, the right maxims of life. Whose courage undaunted, has set an example To be followed by all in political strife " In numbor two tho poot gets his feet In his wings a little, but ho flics, ho soars, ho disentangles himself long enough to kick tho stuffing If wo may uso tho word in no Invidious sense out of syntax. Grover tho Largo is having a hard time, but ho is reflecting, or clso tho millions aro reflect ing, nnd his englo eye has seen a truo guiding star through tho mists of protec tion. This guiding star is not a silvern-shining star, of courso. Mr. Taft doesn't toll what tho star Is, but evidently It Is renoinl natlon, a falling star: Adversity to him is the sweet use of reflection. Ry millions wbo'to seen but dimly from afar What his eagle glance, piercing the mists of protection Proved clearly to be a trne guiding star." In number throo wo behold tho mythical hero slugging clouds w ith a javelin, a rather unprofitable task, ono would think : 'The rnytn of 'free trade' and the dream of 'reci procity' Are mere v. eapons used the great leader to slay; Hut the shield of 'souni currency' and the 'tartu re form' Javelin, Will rspel and disperse those 'clouds' of a day," In number four wo havo tho cohorts of tha nation, n bold poetical Uecnso for tho Colum bian party of Sovon, rallying around somo Hogs whoso names nro not glvon. After tho capture of tho cilado! and tho counting of tho ballots, the guiding star of progress will positively consont to appear. So wo must supposo that tho javelin mon havo got In their work on tho clouds : "And the cohorts of the nation around these banners rallied. Will sboiv to all the world a striggle of might and right; When the citadel Is taken, and the lists bate all been tallied. That guiding star of progress will Illumine the field of fight." In tho last stropho wo got tho finest suc cession of similes and metaphors ovor ox hlbltod to a discriminating public. Wo 300 a prow mado of supply and demand bow ing closo to tho lino nnd rushing on to pierce tho land. Prows that how llko tho adze and are also used as augers, drills, wimblos, or ploughs on land, aro something now to us: but doubtless Mr, Tait la fa miliar with marino architecture as dis played on tho East Boston ferryboats : ' Then the xceu-bladod prow of commercial prosperity, Embodying the laws of supply and demand, Like the adze, bowing close to the true line of prin ciple, Shall triumphantly plerca and clove through the land." Isn't it groat ? "Wo hopo that Mr. Ricn Aiii Watson Gilder will paste It in his scrap book. It Is an Indication of tho wealth of pootry that Is In tho nntl-Donio-crntlc movement. Clouds covor tho Prophot nud his javelin, and tho guiding star has lost Its way, but tho faint chant of tho Mug wump poets still trembles In tho air. Theirs are tho only feet tho Idol has loft to stand ou. Is tho Grunt Letter n Fraud? Mr, Georoe C, Goiuiam has a positlvo opinion eonce'rulng tho authenticity of tho alleged lottor of Grant to Conkli.no, which was pi luted ou Saturday In a despatch fiom Cleveland. Mr, Goiuiam bellovos that tho lottor Is a modern fabrication. Mr, Conic lino told Mr. GonnAU, lmmodiatoiy after tho Convontlon of 1880, that ho had not re ceived ono wrltton Una or hoard ono spoken word from Gou. Grant on tho subject of tho third term. Wo may add that tho Oolumbun Evenino Dispatch of Friday last, where tho docu ment In question originally appeared, pro cents two columns of olabornto comment 011 tho sontimonts attributed to Gen. Grant, but offers nothing whatever In the way of ovldonco that tho letter Itself la genuine Thoro Is no explanation of tho circumstances attending tho dlscovoryof tho letter, nor Is it told through whojo hands It has passed on Its way Into print. If tho letter Is genuine. It will bo very easy for thoso responsible for its publica tion to provo tho fact. But until tho nil thontlclty of this document Is satisfactorily shown, nny discussion of its bearings in political history is decidedly premature. Time to Order a Unit. Thero is something aggravating nnd oven disgusting in tho book publishing business carried ou by tho Federal Government. Here, for lnslnnco, is 11 olumo of lii3 oetav o pages lmmod by tho bo-inllid Bureau of Education, containing tho statements and vlows of Mr. John P. Cami'UF.ll.

This history Is a cry liberally illustrated with pictures. Tho Government of the United States has no moro business to bo sending out !ooks of this sort thuu It has to bo illstilbiitlng flour or tobacco. It Is nothing but a way to got books published which the people don't want to buy, mid which no bontiblu pub lisher could bo Induced to iiinler take. The junk shop Is where thoy bring up at last.
