THE EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON: AY march 14. 1: (?MBT ?. NOTFJ UlMr. THE nwiso STAR ka? tee falleet LmiI (Irealadea (fur Newspaper la ikt War IA a ad m fta AitrrtWx M?4lu h w*rtk l baa all Ik* ether paper* yaklMH 1W1 The DMtiat la 81 James* hall last night waked the echoes of London in stirring fashion. Mr. Paraell iru the lion of the night, and the great throng could not do him honor enough. His speech was remarkable for its strength, and the deadly accuracy with which he laid bars the weak position of the govern ment in the Timet' investigation. He said: "I want to know why, if these charges and allegations had any foundation, the govern ment of the country did not take them np themselves and investigate them to their source by the machinery at their command, and if they wanted ipecial machinery, why did aot they construct it with the power at their command? They had all the machinery in Ireland they required for the detection of crime, especially constructed for them by parliament. If they wanted extra power they could hare obtained it. When was the com mand first given to the forger and perinrer to obtain or invent evidence which woula result in putting u* on trial on criminal charges, the funishment for which was servitude for life? t was at the very moment when Lord Carnar von was inviting us to confer with him on the future government of Ireland and m toa new constitution (for these were his words in open ing the convention) which was to be given to Ireland, establinhing her parliament. That wa* one of the reason* why this business of un earthing crime was left to amateurs. And a pretty mess they made of it." The Times, by coincidence, closed its case on the same day that this memorable ovation was offered to ParnelL Like the break-down of I igott its end was ignominious failure, the last witness for the prosecution being obliged to admit under cross-examination that he an ex-convict. The report of the commisaion cannot fail under all the rules of evidence to be a most severe and scathing commentary on the idiotic malignancy of the Time* in publishing tl;e forged letters. As ft substantial victory in part for the Parnell party, O'Brien and Har- j rington were ordered by the court to be released j from prison in order to aliow them to consult wth Sir Charles Russell, their counsel. This give* the distinguished prisoners their liberty nniil the commission meets again in April. Meantime the cause of Ireland ia growing mag n.ricentlv and John Morley waa able to announce at the St. James hall meeting that over a quar ter of a million English freeholders had signed | a petition against the Saliabury-Balfour policy in Ireland. There are a number of items of great interest in the genera] legislation of the District appro ; . uttionn statute. Among them are the provisiona rt i .ting to the motive power and raila of the street railway* and the burial of the overhead tv re*. Authority is given to the existing street railways to sdopt any of the improved motors a? a substitute for horses, provided that in j making the substitution they replace the T-rail by the grooved rail Thia ia wise and practical legislation. The prospect of competition will doubtless cause the leading and most prosperous lines to avail , themselves of the privilege of improving their motive power, even though the additional ex pense ia involved of adopting the improved rail. The fact that such rails must, by another provision of this clause of the appropriation! act. be substituted for the present abominations within a fixed time, whether or not the privi lege of improving the motive power be utilized, will also have an effect in causing some of the railways to give at once to the public the double benefit of ft better motor and better rails. Congress failed to devise and adopt a general plan of burying the overhead wires, though it received an elaborate and thorough report f-om Major Raymond on the subject in accordance with its request, and though its hostility to such wires was indi cated in many ways. The law against erccting additional overhead wires is still in force, and the present appropriations statute continues the authority given to the Commissioners to permit the electric companies to lay wires under the streets according to some temporary plan to be approved by the Commissioners. The pressure upon the companies for addition al wires and the extension of their business will thus push them toward the use of under- | ground wires. A comprehensive plan of borial is hoped for from the next Congress. Edison has been called upon to asaist the state of New York in providing ? suitable means of executing criminals by use of elec tricity. The experiments conducted in his laboratory show that the proposed reform in executions is likely to be attended with no sick- j ening failures or accidents. The fact that scientists alone will be put in charge of such execution* goes a long ways to relieve them of | possible horrors. Experiments on dogs, calves and horses have demonstrated precisely what amount of force is required and how to apply it. The preliminaries are certainly less re- | pulsive than in the old way, and the result is instantaneous. The chronometer that would measure the duration of the death shock would be fine and sharp indeed. Fifty thousand people in New York are col lectors of postage stamps, and they are having an exhibition. It embraces almost every stamp known to every civilized nation and is said to be worth t200.000. Many exhibits are com plete, while those that must necesaarily be in complete, such as the local stamps issued be fore the government established a general mail service, and thoae of the confederate state*.are really the most interesting historically. Phila telic enthusiasts regard the New York show as the first great exhibit of the world's stamps. Sew Hampshire has gone heavily against prohibition, and the students are busily at work on the phenomena of altered public notions, to see what caused them. The belief that restric tion by high license is more practicable than positive prohibition seems to be gaining ground In New Hampshire. The thousands of laborers ?ho are thrown ?ut of work at Panama are quietly leaving, but nany are unable to do so, and there is great differing all along the canaL The canal is al- J ready a ruin. Lord Lonsdale has conferred a blessing on the ' great majority of mankind by losing himself | Bp toward Hudson's bay. According to all counts that forbidding clime is able to sustain life even of fifth-rate English lords, and there need not b? the slightest waste of worry over Lonsdale. Steam-heating for railroad passenger cars has been the subject ? experiment for several years. The Peniif iia road has given spe cial attention to U-. matter and haa now de veloped ft system, which was tee ted yesterday. It is claimed for thia system that in case of ft | collision the "pipes would instantly collapse" ftnd there would be no steam to scald the pftft-1 sengers.
