wholly unfieeesFarv desturbance of
"business; because It moots no want
and removes no grievance of any
American industry; because its en
actment would be followed by ruinous
conseqnen' es; because it responds t
no patriotic impulse; because its
spirit and provisions are thoroughly
British and essentially un-American.
It is a nuasureof the crudest statesman
ship. Kocruder tariff measure has ever
emanated from a Wavs and Means
Committee, lleyon j the advance to

in its proposed additio 6 to ihefreo
list, it simplifies nothing in the present
tariff, but, on the contrary, further
complicates the levying and collection
of duties and increases the opportuni
ties for frauds on the revenue by sub
stituting ad valorem for spec fic
duties in many instances. The bill
is framed in utter disregard of the
. promise contained in the Chicago
platform of 1884, upon which the
present administration came into
power; that it is not proposed to in-
. jure any domestic industries, but
rather to p-omote thei' healthy
growth. It is not entitled to the re
spect of the American people, and we
trust that it will not receive the ap
proval of your body.

London, April 22. The Irish land
purchase bill, which the House of
Commons last Friday night gave Mr.
Gladstone permission to introduce,
was issued to day. It covers twenty
six pages. The bill is divided into
five parts. There are fifty-two clauses
and lour schedules. The b 11 provides
that a landlord who is desirous to sell
his property Bhali apply to the State
authority. The latter snail refer the
application thus made to a Land Com
mission, whii h, after ma' in an in
quiry, shall fix a price at which the
firoperty shall be sold, unless the
andlords and the State authority have
previously come to an agreement. If
the landlord objects to the price fixed
by the Commission he may withdraw
his application on paying the costs
When a sale of property has been
effected the commission shall pav the
creditor before making any other dis
tribution of the purchase money.
Certain rent charges may bo bought
outright by the State authority, or
payment may bo continued from the
tenant's repayments. In case of
property whe eon there is reasonable
cause to suppose that valu Me min
erals exist the commission shall add to
the purclutse money a fair sum there
for, and the minerals realized from
said pro- erty shall be vested in the
State authority or such local body as
the Irish Legislature may provide.
Tho Irish Receiver-General and
deputies, Mho are to execute tho
financial part of the act, shall be ap
pointed to hold office as permanent
civil servants, subject to the authority
of tho Treasury. They shall bo paid
from the Imperial Exchequer, but the
Irish government shall appoint the
actual collectors. If the Receiver
General or any of his deputies shall
be guilty of malfeasance, the culprit
shall forfeit the sums so lost and also
shall be subject to a fine of 500.
The measure empowers the Treas
ury to ( reate three classes of perma
nent annuities, bearing interest, re
spectively, at 8. 2 and 2J per cent.,
and which shall be charged to the
imperial consolidated fund Strict
rules are provi-'ed by the bill, which
forbid the subdividing or subletting
of a holding so long as it is subject to
any State charge ; but tlie State au
thority is empowered to relax these
rules where he may think it advisa
ble. The other points of the bi'l were
covered by Mr Gladstone's speech of
Friday evening last.

and the losses, it is exj ectcd, will be

the most valuable business blocks in
the city. So fiercely anil rapidly did
the flames gain headway that three
alarms were sent out. These were
supplemented by several special sig
nals. The building was provided with
a brick roof, and before this could be
broken thiough to allow the firemen
to get at tho fire, the flames broke cut
on the Broadway front, bus getting a
good draft. '1 he fire lit Veil up every
thing before it. The firemen battered
in the roof and walls, a id succeeded
in directing a strenta of water on the
l lazing mass. An opening once made,
scores of strenniB began , o play upon
tho roaring flames, and in less limn
an hour the firemen had gained the
upper hand of the flumes. The build
ing is "I'O feet in eUlent, running
from Broadway to Crosby street,
and is practically a double building.
The ground floor on the south side is
occupied by A Laufer fe Co., import

Iiied tho remainder of this part of the

I ad all been receiv d by each one of
tbeso firms, tho aggiegnte loss is esti
mated at t750,i00. The three upper
floors only are burned out, but the
entire building was flooded with
water. Messrs. Goddard A (Sons car
ried a stock valued at 1500,(100, and
