Though Herbert Gladstone declares that his
father has fully recovered his hoalth. and that
the storlos ot his weakness aro Inventions of
malicious political enomlos. and though tho

statesman to-day looked palo and distressed,
and sank Into his soat as though exhaustod.
He was nervous and Irritable. Tho light from
the opposite windows annoyed hlra, his oyes
, being still weak from tho effocts ot tho injury
sustained by one ot them during tho campaign
In Sootland. At a signal from him the attend
ants olosed tho windows and drow the cur
tains. During most of tho debnto Mr. Glad
stone listened with his oyos closed, kcoplng
his haDd to his ear In token ot attention to
what was being said.
Mr. Chamberlain never camo so near losing
control of hlmsolf as In his rago to-day at the
taotlos omployod by Tim Hoaly toproventhls
delivering a speech. The Birmingham states
man's faco was almost groen with cholor. Ho
hoaped denunciations upon Hoaly's head.
Healy smiled sardonically during most ot the
diatribe, but when Chamberlain doclarod that
Healy was a person who would Insult any
man. and then, pausing, added with offonslve
emphasis, "or any woman." the faco of tho
Irish membor underwont a BUddon chango of
appearance and became livid with supprossod
rage. Tho Tories yelled with delight at Cham-
berlaln's home thrust and kept up tho shout
ing until thoy were hoarse. After Chamber
lain's speech, he and Lord Randolph Churchill
iwere seen ohatttng together in the lobby, the
first time they have beon known to oonverse
The Tories were plainly chagrined at their
failure to extort replies from the Liberals.
The latter werooontont to do very little talk
ing and to rely upon their votos. When Mr.
Gladstone entered he was cheered enthusias
tically. Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, who wore
an orchid. In addition to his usual garb, was
alio cheered as ho wont to his Beat. The mem
bers were generally good-humored, tho Con
servatives looking reconciled to defeat and
the Liberals happy over victory. . . .
The Might Hon. Joseph Chamberlain arose
to speak on the motion of "noconfldenoe,"
but Mr. Alpheus a Morton. Liberal, of Peter
borough objected on the ground that ho hod
already spoken the previous ovenlng. The
Speaker overruled the objection, whereupon
Mr. Chamberlain proceeded with his remark.
He bitterly commented on the tactics em
. P.loyed to prevent him from speaking, and said
that It was an early sample ot the petty and
malignant treatment to bo meted out to the
Liberal-Unionists. Mr. Gladstone was civilly
answered: Irish members wero treated In a
similar way. but remarks by Unionists wero
regarded as irrelevant and impudent.
Alter this outbreak, which tho Liberal
Unionists showed somo BiitnB of apolauding.
and to which the Irish members listened with
grim satisfaction. Mr. Chamberlain launched
out against the incoming Government, lie
fatd that the policy and comnosltlon of the

Views of Mr. (iladstono and Mr. Morley.
Tho Llboral declarations. Mr. Chamberlain
continued, wero Irreconcilable with Irish de
mands. What, therefore, wns tho prospect for
tho new Government if tho Irish Nationalists
adhered to their repeated declarations and It

said, to reject a bill sent to it by a miserable

docllnod the offer. Tho Fronch authorities
are much disappointed at the refusal, as tholr

to expel Deacon from tho country attor his

might call forth a remonstrance on tho part
of the Amortcan Legation. Thorotoro tho at

The Abelllo family and their inUuentlal con

to prevent Deacon from having any further
opportunity to air his grievances, nnd hnve.

Deacon ease has been a salutary lesson for

very jubilant ovor a telegram roeolved last

the receipt ot a loiter this morning, to tho olToct
that Judgo Grcaham hnd concluded to tako
tho stump in tho interest ot tho Third party
nnd would mako lils opening Bpooch at In
dianapolis tho latter part of this month.
Chairman Taubenock received this intolll
gonco from tho Chairman of tha btato Com
mittee ot Indiana, to whom Judgo Grosham
hod wrltton, declaring his intentions nnd set
ting forth his reasons for making a cnmpalgn
in tho Interest otGon. Weaver. In his report
to tho national headtjuartors tho Chairman ot
tho Btato Commtttoo ot Indiana states that
Judgo Grcaham. in apprising him ot his In
tentions. Informod him by lottor that ho did
not rofuso the Presidential nomination bo
couso ho was not In sympathy with tho party,
but for a reason that was ontlroly porsonal,
and not political.
" How do you llko that for a nloca of nows?"
said Mr.Tnubonock. " It means that ono spoooh
from Grosham, no matter whethor ho makes
moro than ono in our favor, setting forth our
objocts and indorsing our platform, will win
over DOO.000 votos for tho People's party that
wo would havo boon unablo to control other
wise. 'With a flattering prospoot now in Indi
ana, tho oncournglng reports received from
tho South, nnd with tho silver Btntcs behind
us. wo havo good couso to feol hopeful."
Chairman Taubeneck was asked It he would
olvo Secretary Stoll's letter for publication.
This ho refused to do.
Henry Yinoent. editor ot tho Btato organ, and
who was ono ot tho committee who waited on
Judgo Grcshamto induce, him to accept the
nomination for tho l'rosldoncy. said In rofor
onco to the despatch announcing his Intention
of stieuklnc here: "It does not surnriso mo
In tho least.
Last July, when the Pcoplo's party commit
too waited upon Judge Grosham at Chicago,
ho gave us to understand that ho would make
soveral speechos before tho oampalen
rlosod. There is no question in my mind
but that the despatch that nppoarod
to-day is eenutno. When Otto Grosham.
tho Judco's son. was hero about a week, ago
ho told mo that lu a fow days ho would have
somo good nows for tho People's party, nnd I
suppose now that ho reforrod to his father's
Intention to take tho stuinp.as Intimated to-day
In that Ht. Louis tolegram. Of course tho tna-
Iorlty of tho Judge's speeches will he delivered
n Indiana, although ho may make somo In
Ulnols. where his popularity Is fully as great
as It Is In this State. It may sound Ifko nn ex
aggeration, but nevertheless I bellevo that
Judgo Grosham will mako fifty thousand
votos for us hero in Indiana. Ho is in hearty
sympathy with tho movement, and will yield
a most powerful influence In this Statu."
