The MvcniBient for Inland bill
came np in the British Honsi of Com
mom yesterday, on second reading,
and was defeated by a majority of
thirty. The speeches made on the
occasion will . be found reported
on another page, and to these
we refer onr readers, quite
sure that will agree with Mr.
Gladstone that that ot Mr. Parnell is
most commendable for its moderation,
the wise, statesmanlike view he
took of the bill, and the earnestness
with which he pledged the Irish peo
ple to accept it as a finality of their
agitation for home rule. His manner
was as liocere as h's words,
and there can be no doubt
that when what he has said so well
is read to-day by the Engl'sh and
Scottish people it will have the effect
of checking among the Radicals es
pecially the growth of national ani
mosity which the speeches of Lord
Hartington and Mr. Chamber
lain have had the effect of
increasing and intensifying. Mr.
Parnell by this, as Mr. Gladstone
calls V, masterful speech has cleared
away a'l doubts as to h's fitness for
the position he holds as the leader of
the Irish peop'e a position of rela
tively as great responsibility aathat
which Mr. Gladstone hold) is the
leader of the British people. He
shows that he has the bieadth and
comprehension essential to leader
ship in grave crisis involv
ing national freedom, a crisis as grave
as that which eighty-five years ago
precipitated the loss to Ireland of
home government. His wisdom in
indorsing the bill from a general stand
point no intelligent Irishman, at home
or abroad, will, dispute; nor are there
any such who will gainsay bis right
to pledge his country-people to
the acceptance of it as a final
ity and that tbey will govern
themselves under it) provisions with
moderation and circumspection and a
just observance, in a spirit of peiff.
equality, of the rights of all clpje
Mr. Parnell has spoken brav 'd
..... ... w a
well,. He. has et'Vjnetty v tUPt
the gratitude the kith people, feel
toward tit. Gl-iia'ooe an tttlr trfonJ;
and he has pledged in strong wards
their loyalty fjr the empire and its
pei feet integrity that no one who is
fair-minded and candid , will call in
question. He has covered all the points
raised by the bill or by any of the mem'
bets of the Home of Commons who
have spoken for or against it, and has
made a statement Bo fair, so frank, to
utterly withont quibble or resstva
tion, that it cannot fail of the most
telling effect in case Parliament
is dissolved and an appeal Is
made to the people. Indeed,
in any case it will have this effect the
effect of convincing all who are not
Tories or Whigs, all who are not im
placably and irreconcilably enemies of
justice and right, and enemies of
the Irish people, that Ireland, under
such a bill as that which has been de
feated, is to be trusted to maintain
law and order within her bordais, and
is loyally and heartily is Englishmen
themselves maintain '.he integrity and
supremacy of the Empire. With this
speech In his hand Mr. Gladstone will
be impregnable and unassailable
before the Brit'sh people. When
first he broached his measure
of Irish home rule, it will
be remembered by the reader) of the
Appeal that Mr. Gladstone was not
able to answer the question every
where pnt by intelligent men through
out England, whether the Irish people
would be satisfied with it. He could
not answer that question because
without more mature considera
tion than they then had an
opportunity for the Irish leaders
themselves could not answer it. But
when in the coming canvass that
question is repeated, he can refer
the people of Great Britain to Mr.
. ' Parnell's speech as containing a
solemn pledge of the acceptance of the
bill by the Irish people, a can
didly friendly criticism of it and all
the guarantees possible as to the
internal peace and good government
of Ireland under and by virtue of it,
and as to the maintenance of the in
tegrity of the empire. Mr. Parnell's
speech' will strengthen Mr. Gladstone
at every hitherto weak point in his
armor, and acting conjointly they
cannot fail in a few weeks to secure a
.majority in the next House of Com
mons that will not only carry the bill,
but convince the House of Lords
' that it is the wi 1 and wish of the
British people that Ireland ought of
right to be free to make her own laws
at ' map out ber own destiny.

what the Democracy of Davidson want
It is urged tbat other roomies
having aspirants, fearing the strength
of Davidson if she sticks close to tbe
unit rule, are exc ting disaffection
agninBt the action of the convention
in establishing this guide, and the
remark was frequently heard yester-
ay that it was to bo sincerely honed
that the Davidson delegation would
not disregard the obligation placed
upon them by the convention, but
would i-espect it and preserve her
rower, just as Mielby does, which nni
brmly acts as a unit.
The prevailing opinion is tha'. in
pite of determined ellorta from Kliel-
hy and other large counties to cause
the Davidson delegation to abolish the
unit rule that Davidson will remain
true to her instructions, the argument
being used that she will destroy her
ntlttence if she doesnot act as a unit.
The deliberations of the delegation to-
lay will be eagerly watvlied. It
said that Judge I'craoss
will be nrired for the chair
manship of the delegation. The
race appears to be particularly even
between the candidates from Middle
and West Tennessee, and ilthougli
tlire were rumors of combinations.
but few could be traced to anything
use a definite origin and may be
ascribed to that proneness nf men to
associate cliques and underground
schemes to evert political uolibera
The situation appeared to bo a bard
free-for-all fight. With regard to the
selection of tbe Judges it may be said
tnat tne mate constitution provides
that there shall be one Judge from
each of the grand divisions of the
Slat. Of the remaining two Judges
it is stipulated that but one shall be
given to any one division. According
to this, two of the three
divisions will have two judges,
ana tne otner division one
Judge. It was said last night by
a wen-posted loader mat west Ten
ne.Mfl would certainly rat two
Judges, beratise both Middle and East
Tennessee disliked to see each other
get two, and either would support the
western Division in preference to
the other. However, delegates from
each diviion are extremely hopeful
cf securing two cf the position.

ses, with s single except on, have
agrued to submit their claims to tho
delegates from this end ( f the State
in preliminary conference. This is in
accordance with the Trilrune'i snggos
tion made several weeks ago. It has
been universally indorsed by tbe peo
ple as tbe only fa r way to secure tho
nomination of East Tenrieisae's
choice, whoever he may be. The plan
is for the East TennefBre delegates to
meet the day before tbe convention,
and from the donn candidates in this
end of the 8' ate select the strongest
one or two of tbe candidates to be
presented lo the convention as our
choice. A candidate wbo cannot get

delegates certainly cannot ask

ing to the constitati n the five Su
preme Coart judges inut be so dis
tributed that not mora ihantwjcan
be selected from one division of tbe
StAte. Certainly there can be noth
ing unfair in each di-iaion selecting
for itnelf at Ica-t one candidate. 1 ha
East Tennessee deleftat- s are b t'er
able to name onr first choice for Su
preme Co art Judge than are the dele
gates from the other two divisions of
the Sla'e. It is pnbable that only
one of the fudges will be accorded to
East Tennesnee. In this case our
delegates will certainly insist npon
naming tbe man. We cannot submit
to Middle and Wet Tennessee nam
ing for us a randidate whom we do
not want. They haveitin their power
nd will probably do it if onr dele
gatss tamely submit. If we show a
