If that, however, should not prove to b ? so, he would desire to have power giveuio make a complete investigation. He sent to the clerk's desk and had read several letters and telegrams received by him; also, a manllesto which llrst conveyed to the colored peo ple 01 Jackson the lurormatlon that they would not be allowed to vole. Tills manifesto, he said, displayed at its head an engraving of a couple of pistols, a couple of shot-guns ana a powder tlask. In It the "young men ot Jackson' announced "tuelr ultimatum."

Mr. Weaver (Iowa) made the point of order that the bill was not accompanied by a report such as was contemplated In tne rule requiring commit tees to submit written reports with every meas ure. The report upon this bill was one merely "recommending Its passage," and yet upon hu-n a report the House whs asked to act upon a meas ure whose cenalu effect was to Increase national bank circulation to the extent ot $20,000,000, and whose possible effect was to increase It to the ex tent of more than $400.000.000. ...

Special Cable Dispatch to Till Evimsii Stab. XjONDON. Jan.

The speech did not go very far toward In dicating bla policy, unless his remarks about the Inconvenience of having an Income tax arid the desirability of taxing certain luxuries may be Liken to ludlcate the Intention of the government to go a> far as they dare to conciliate their fair trade supporters. More probably, however, it was merely inten.l?Hl to amuse these gputletuen with barreu expressions of sympathy, more particularly as he went on to say, referring to Gladstones policy of BWEEriNQ AKTICLEH FanM THE TAKtfT. tliat it orteu happens that au important step on.* taken, even If Impolitic, cannot be retraced. It Ls diflicull to follow reasoning of this klud. If the repeal of indirect taxes Is found to have an in jurious effect on commerce, surely a wise states man would relmpose tlieni. In respect to Ireland there was no indication whatever of government policy in the speech. It merely consisted of the familiar arguments of the tory speaker^ a defease of the crimes bill, per sonal abuse of Gladstone, and. In worse taste, ridi cule'of o isrlen, who, even ills opponents do not deny, Is suffering the loss of liberty and humiliat ing treatment for what he conceives to be rlirht and lor lue good of his country. Men like Salis bury, who has always been a cold, calculating cnilc, with sympathy only lor the rich, are quite unable to understand tie leeltng which prompts a man to sell-sac. tflce. Salisbury evide tly thought In Hie f.ice of the positive declarations 01 Justiu McCarthy and other Irish members as to Till OVKKTlkES OK 10HD CARNARVON*. when the lories were in office the last time, that these could no longer be denied; therefore, although quite recently he accused McCarthy of slandering Carnarvon,now he throw* his colleague overboard, and, while admitting that Carnarvon favored home rule, prou-sis that he was the only lory minister who did s >. The ques.lon remains, lb reiore. whether Carnarvon, In'.elling the Irlsn members wnofli no met in couierenoe t.iat lie did so ufler cousuit.ug his colleagues, was telling a deliberate la.seaood, or whether, what Is more probable, Salisbury, after deLying Carnarvon's par.iopatloh in the matter and now admlitlug it, was the more likely to be incorrect lu his laiesl version. Salisbury's assertion that tiie crimes bill Increased lue support to the government is the reverse of the truth, for herein lies the strength of the opposUiou. If the government ha.1 bts-u > . in tent to govern Ireland ac oraiug to ordinary law, as tuey pru.ulseil they would do. It Is the opinion of coiup tent obse. vers thai the LIBERAL REACTION WOCLD HAVE BREN DELATED a lung while, since there is a deep-rooted prejudice among Englishmen, as anions 01 in r nationalities, against anything having tae appearance of a cur tailment 01 dominion, such as Gladstone's scheme lor home rule. Even lie' J'mux, consoling Itself recently over the tact that toe government 1 .si many seats while the opposition had uol lost oue, admitted thai lue crimes act was the cause.
