SlTrRDAT. t i JUSE 86.
I seemi that the pok ileal, mo-a'
and social interests and activities if
Tennessee are to be partitioned among
Hie members of tbe Taylor itmily. On
"Wednesday last tbe Hon. A. A. Taylor
1 Carter was nominated aa the re
publican candidate lor Governor of
Tenneesee, and a dispatch from Knox
vi'le announce that "in a conversa
tion this afternoon the Hon. R. L.
Taylor slated that he would be a
Democratic tapirant for Governor,
notwitliB'and.ng bia brother Alt bad
been nominated by the Republicans."
And strange, to say there are Demo
crats and Democratic newspapers in
Tennessee favoring the unseemly and
unnatural spectacle of arraying two
brothers ts opposing candidates for
Governor. Such a contest would cer
tainly be grotesque, but it will be con
demnel and rebuked by every
man rvho respects the tendfr and
affestirnnti ties that shou'd
ever link together brothers who nes-
fed in ths bom of the same sainted
loving mrlher. A. A. and R. L. Tsy-
lor are the. worthy sors of a noble sire,
and tbe people of Tennessee are proud
of the posterity of such ancestry. By
their talents both have worked their
wav to nn honorable fame. There is
no Democrat in tbe State for whom
tbe A weal entertains a higher admir
ation than the Hon. R. L. Taylor. He
lias fought the battles of his party
against overwhelming odds and in tbe
face of certain defeat with a sublime
courage. He goes into every Ther
iuodt'h' a Spartan, but comrs out
slightly disfigured but slill In tbe ring
For his services he his already been
reward d by the Democratic adinlnls
tration with an cilice of honor and
profit, ind by permitting tin use of his
name as a candidate for Coventor in
opposition to his brother he wrecks
bis indue and discovers that
tbe Democracy of Tennessee will not
lend itself to the anomalous
scandal which would follow the nom
inat'on of ono brother to oppose an
other. 8uch a grotes que and nnnitu
ral fnrce might be gratifying to the
house of Tnylor but it would be dis
gusting t J the refined sensibilities of
the people of Tennessee who still re
spect the hal'owed ties of kindred
blood. If the home of Taylor desire
a monopoly of the ofllces let them se
lect diflerent c dices, where each indi
vidual member is final authority in
bis pecu'iar sphere, none trenching
upon the domain of the other. This
is not a Republic provided with gov
erning familes. If the Taylor broth
era are pitted againet each other, here
after a canvass in Tennessee withont
n scon from tha house of Taylor would
be like a church without a Bishop, an
empire without a king. We had two
Adamses father and son in the
Presidency, but they did not oppose
each other. The house of Adams is
still in the ascendent in Mamichusetts.
The pay roll of that Slate and the
city of ltoston would be incomp'ete
without one or more Adamces being
liorno upon it. But the Adamses
never oppose each other. The house
of Waehbumo was composed of five
brothers, who divided out the ofllces
among themselves, and instead of op
posing each other they remem
bered that they descended from
the (tame parentage, and their love
of mother waa stronger than the love
of office, and they helped each other
in obtaining the ofllces with the same
loving brotherhood that they divided
out the apples stolen in their boyhood
days. He who bits charge of the regu
lation of tbe equinoctial storms docs
not interfere with the motions
of the plaoeli, and if the house
of Taylor would prevent confusion
and keep each orbit In its sphere, it
will prevent centrifugal Alf and
centripetul Bub from colliding during
the Gubernitorialeanvass. The senior
eon of the house of Tnylor lug already
been nominated as a candidate. He
has pranced Into tbe ring in
good order and well conditioned. Tbe
junior sprig of the house, with his hat
on the back of bis head, and bis
thumbs in tbe arm holes of his vest,
is anxious for the Democratic nomina
tion and to send his brother to Riots.
But it is hrped the good sense of the
people of Tennessee will interpose
and prevent an encoonter unknown,
unnatural and revolting to the civiliza
tion of tha age that of two brothers
opposing candidates for Governor. If
we Are to have the house of Taylor,
like that of York with its white rose,
and Lancaster with blood red rose, let
the brothers of our house lovingly
exhale me fragrance 01 the same
the rttiiF.Ri: qtJESTion mist
Again and again in tbe history of
our country are found records of its
disputes with Canada respecting the
fishing rights of each in the seas ad
joining the Canadian coat. Again
and again they have been settled, only
yet again to break out, and now once
more tte old qnanel is a disturbing
element between tbe two conntriee.
It is a strange thing that during eo
long a time, with so lull a knowl
edge on both sides of every de
tail of the questions arising, elites
men have not been able to find a solu
tion of the fishery problem substan-
tially satisfactory to both the parties
concerned. So it is, however, and we
have the whole fishery disturbance up
again, including patriotism, stars am?
stripe b and the glorious Dominion of
Canada, "the brightest colonial
jjwel in the Brit sh crown.'
But when patriotism loads to a
talk of our fishermen fitting
up their Imts with a four or six
pounder cannon in ca;h, we
touch the kind of gun
powder jratriotism that, like the
intense patriot mm of the Ulster
r rot est ants in Ireland, forgets the pat
riotism that never ceases to render
obedience to its country'a laws. We
have given no provocation ts Cina'a
for her discourteous and very provok-
ng proceedings, and, being in tbe
right eo far, it is to be hoped that the
hct real of some of her fishermen will
not put us In tbe wrong. Two blacks
lo not make a white, nor two wrongs
one right, and no wrong on our part
will make the Canadian wrong right.
This is especially worth remembering
by our fishermen, when they reflect
that such a ganpowdery way of assert
ing national claims by private ven
geance carries with it tbe ngly crime
known as "piracy," with all its very
unpleasant conrequencse. It is true
that to await the (low procets of
diplomacy, while smarting under tbe
sense of Wrong, is trying to irritated
temper, but under present circum
stances patience is the only resonrce.
The present question his to be settled,
not with blustering Canadians, but
with coM and experienced Eng
land, and that country is in
a ferment just at present with
ber own home affairs. A Fnrlia
mentary election is at hand, and t
change of Minletry is a possible con
sequence. Under these circumstances,
whatever zeal our own alrnlnlstra
tion wiy show, it can scarcely beer
pected that the tamo tpeed in nego
tiation can be secured as in times less
troublous in tbe country negotiated
with. Let us stand strictly within
our legal claims, and while maintain'
ingthem firmly maintain a' so the dig
nifled calm lees becoming a great na
tion. Tben, whoever maybe bullied
in the dispute and worsted by its de
cision, It will not be us.

Monday night. He will speak at
Manchester some time during tbe earn

Mr. Gladstone ipoke in Music Hall
here tonight. Tickets of admies:on
bad been issued, and the ball, which
is capable of holding 2000peisons,
was filled to its utmost capacity. The
aud'ence cheered f jr Mr. G'adstcne
and Lord Rosebury, and groaned for
Mr. Chamberlain and Lord Harring
ton and other unionists, but John
Cowen, chairman of Mr. Gladstone's
Election Committee, who r resided
over the meeting, called for silence.
When he began bis speech, Mr. Glad
stone's voice seemed less powerful
than formerly. He slid that Inker
man was a soldiers' battle. It was
not won by generals' tactics or ability,
but by soldiers' valor. Equally were
the present dissolution of Parliament
and general elections tbe peoples'
battle. Referring to the seceding Lib
erals, Jur. uiadstone (aid tbe ques
tion wis whether the country would
resolve, with a strong sense of justice
ind sympathy lor Ireland, to com
nensa'e for theeo defections. ''I
am stronvly convinced," (aid be, "that

day notwithstanding the defection of

feel that it should be snociallv con
served so lar as it is valuable. We seek
which we are struggling to restore. It
is desirable to speedily close this great
controversy for every great interest in
this country. The positions of all par
ties will be deplorable; public busi
ness will bs interrupted, and public
lonfldence shaken. Social order in
Irelmd will not be restored unless the
people (peak clearly, manfully, de
cisively, such as the question merits.
Cheers Da not let it be said that
the nation is unequal to the task of
dealing with the question. Borne flinch

hour of trouble; let the nation not do
likewise. Rest assured that if tbe na
tiou's voice be given in defense of our
cause, when tbe contest is settled and
tho excitement has passed away, it
will resemble the old questions ot re
ligious dieability, parliamentary re
form and free tiade. The peo
ple will wonder wby onpoai

were defeated by Irish agency, the
Conservatives having obtained frty
sea's tbrougb the support of tbe 1 ar
nellites. Do not praise or blame Mr.
Parnell for his action. Suppose the
foity Lad been deducted from our op
ponents in the home rule division, it
would have made their number 301
instead of 341. Suppose the forty had
been added to our 311, it would bave
made ns 351 instead of 311. It is inv
portant that tbe electors should real
ize the true Issue, which is much die
puted. Is It a choice between oppo
site policies iegard:ng Ireland, be
tween opposite principles of action,
or a choice uton tbe details
of a large and complicated bill?
Important journals urge you not
to consider the policy to be
pursued, but to entangle youreelves in
the details of this or that particular
method of establishing that policv.
The question you are asked to decide
is the proposition to establish a legis
lative body in Ireland to manage ex
olusively I'ish affairs. It is a princi
pis apon which you are called to vote
and not details and particulars, or even
a bill. I propose to reduce tbe issue
to a point wherelroin
Among tbe great and painful defec
tions from honesty and honor, wherof
we are convince!, and which we
deeply lament, is that of our former
powerful ally, the Saihman newspaper
(bisses snd aroans . wbich has ren
dered great and valued services to the
Liberal policy. The .Votomnn now
goes to the root of the matter and
puts the l'sue in a way in which it
can be met more meritoriously, just as
our opponen's in Parliament put tbe
iesue, in s way at one time favoring
the borne rule and tbe principle of tiie
bill, and yet voted sgainst it because
they objected to the details of ths
measure. Ths &fornan ruts the cues'
tion fairly and clearly, ft says: "Any

ists of a desire lor self-government
In Ireland will test
the valae or meaning of these
professions. Let a candidate be asked
if he would in the new Parliament
support Gladstone's bill, if reintro
duced with the alterations explained
at tbe Fore gn Olllce meeting. If he
w ill he is for disunion and onght to
rejected. Ho play upon words will
help him out of this position." Now
mark the coming words: "Hafo self-
government lor Ireland is tbe one
thing most desirable in Mr. Glad
stone's bill, but there is another most
undesirable feature." Now, make the
Si-oUmnn, and all igreeing with the

am sure when they mention
they don't mean by safe to emaecu'afe
the substantive. They mean that
with reasonable precaution the Irish
ought 10 bave a rea', effective control
of Irish atlalrs. That is all we want
cheers, all we aek of you. We never
asked Parliament to tie itself to the
details of the bill. There is no part of
it that Parliament is not perfectly free
to change if tiie change is compatible
with a principle likely to forward tbe
application of the principles better
than the provisions embodied in the
bill. We would come ts accept the
chfuge in this as no novelty. I made
this declaration on behalf of tbe gov
ernment. The caec is this: We
had before ns a principle to
establish an Irish statutory legielative
body or Parliament, to manage exclu
lively Irish aflairs. We laid down
several conditions essential to a safe
application of that principle. It must
be compatib'e with and conducive to
union of the empire, must be founded
upon political iquaiity, embrace an
eqnitab'e distribution of imperial
burdens, and a reasinable safeguard
to the minority to afford any rational
prospect of beiig aecep'ed is a settle
ment of the qi:eston. Nobody ques
tions those conditions. Tbey are ad
mitted to bs jist and rational. Tbe
principle has ben reiterated over and
again. It is new idle to (ay that the
country will be asked to vots on the
details of the bill.
Cheers Tin principle of tbe bill
survives. Lotd cheers. I will never
be guilty of profiting to yon without
reflection a cev plan to give effect to
tbe principle. I never will accept a
new plan unlets I believe it to be tet
ter than tbe old one. 1 have been
grievously disappointed at the barren
ness and dtenl.ty of mind the critics
have shown concerning onr plan, when
tbey have raised objections. The last
thing they htve shown themselves
competent to co has been to suggest
improvement. Cbeera. Perhaps
they thought tbey wou'd not
waste the treasures of their minds on
such n unprofitable audience as the
gjvernment Perhaps when they are
returned to Parliament, such of them
as get there riaugbterl will produce
one or more excellent plans. They
will find ns the first and moat eajer
to bail and welcome them and we will
promise in the names of our colleagues
to cast our owa bill to tbe winds ibe
moment we are shown a be'ter plan to
give effect to our principles, prov ded
it is not an evasion of tbe subject or
artificial machinery devUed to
Ministerial candidates muet not be
tested by the bill we introdoced in
Parliament, because it was the best
we could frame. Doubtless they are
better men than we, and if so tbey
will frame a much belter bill or put ns
in a way of doing it, and if tbey da
this they will not be more bappy tan
we. perhaps not mite so bappy. The
Scoltman says: Every ministerialist
must be conaidcred pledged to support
the bill. He can hardly be pledged to
support tbe bill as a mioisten
alist when the Minittry itself don't
ask or expect it. We txpect
him to act in good faith, knowing tbe
meaning of his words and not using
oibeis as feints, screens or stratgemd
to ebcape from it, hut shall, in tbe
meaning 0! lis words, give Ireland
real and ellective control of local
affairs. If he is ready to do that he is
a good ministerial candidate. If he

I blamo neither. It is extremely im
portant to know wlut happened. Mr.
Parnell said that Earl Carnarvon of
fered, if the Conservatives were suc
cessful in the elections, to grant home
rule measures and t) protect Irish in
dustries. Eirl Carnarvon denied the
accuracy of thn statement, but Mr.
Pdrnell kdheres to it I believe that
both have spoken with perfect verac
ity, whatever may be tbe point of dis
pute between them. But Earl Car
narvon has told us what he did not
say. Ho said he did not report
tbe conversation to the Cabinet.
Earl Carnarvon explained his .views
as Lord Lieutenant and as a
Cabinet Minister, Lord Carnarvon told
bis colleagues that he favored a p'an
that would meet the wants of Ireland
in respect to local self-government,
and would to some extent satisfy the
national aspiration. Lord Carnarvon
may dislike it, but, in substance, he is
onr man, not theirs, if he is ready to
meet the wants of Ireland for local
self-government disturbance and cries
of "turn them out" and also in some
degree to satisfy the national aspira
tions of Ireland. There is no loom
for diipnte between him and ns.
and Mr. Chamberlain carefully avoid
ed expressing a teadinees to satisfy in
some degree the national aspirations
of Ireland. This and no other is the
turning point These are Lord Car
narvon's opinions and this is what he
said, but I call his attention, and shall
call it repeatedly, if necessary, to
what he did not say. He has not
ttated what he did say to Mr. Parnell.
I shall believe, until he enntradic's.
that he told Mr. Parnell he favored
satisfying the wants of Ireland fully
with regard to local self-government,
and that be desired to (aMafy Ire
land's RRticnal aspirations. Why did
not the Cabinet expel this diannionist
for bis misdeeds? For tbe fact thit
they were sorry to lose him I I be
lieve Kail Carnarvon's statement that
he never told tho Cabinet, but I feel
sure he told Earl Salisbury because it
was bis absolute duty and because he
was not entited to make inch a state
ment to Mr. Parnell and withhold it
from the Premier. If he did so we
know that Earl .Salisbury, until
August, knew tbat his colleague was
in communication with ths great ' dis
integrator" and "dismemberer." I do
not find fault with Farl Salisbury if he
entertained a wish in the same direc
tion is Eirl Carnarvon I think it
very wise of Earl Salisbury. Tbe
summit of my ambition would have
been to support him and give effect to
his wise indication. If Kurl Salisbury
faltered and coquetted with that sub
ject before the election was over and
forty seats ssenred, he carefully con
cealed his opinion that satisfying the
national aspitatlona of Ireland is dis
integra'ion and dismemberment. If
such is the case he baa a sarious re
(possibility resting upon him and a
difiirult account to render. The
course be tben pursued is placed in
contrast with his conduct now.
his former colleague, and his present
friend's a'ternstive po'icy, Mi. Glad
stone said: "Lord Hartingcon three
years ago opposed all concessions to
Ireland in the mat'er of local govern
ment until a fundamental change and
a penitential reformation in the con
duct of the Irish members should
have come abodt. The Irish have
moved in the wrong direction, but
Lord liertington has moved toward
them. He no longer talks of gradual
progress, but in his address certain
powers not mentioned are to be dele
gated to certain bodies, tht nnmbra
of which are unknown. What can ba
expected from one who thus va-irs
bis scheme ? They are plans cf very
eminent individuals taken up by no-
boay. do you intend to nave a pun
with a finality, or a plai which tbe
Irish representatives repuiiate? It is
trilling with the subject. Mr. Cham
berlain proposed a yeir ago tbe estab
lishment of Iri-h Centra! Councils
with large administrative powers. I
iieve that tbe plan was not
Mr. Chamberlain's, but Mr. Par
nell's, who was willing to accept it
as long as bis expectations made him
take what was the beit he could get
after the Tory government came in.
At tbe begioning of 1886 Mr. Cham
berlain went further and advocatad a
large scheme of federation. He next
propounded, during the same beseioo,
an extremely small echeme for a
cutting ths national aspirations into
quarters, like a man used to be
tanned, drawn and quartered. Cheers
and laughter. Mr. Chamberlain flies
high, like a lark, or more like a swal
low bsfore a ihower, according to tne
suggestions of bis teeming biain. I
bave perhaps shown yon enough
of the fertility of this re
markable man who ye-.terday
founded a Radical Unionist Associa
tion to (uppo it local self-government
for England, Ireland and Scotland.
Poor Wales is to have no recognition.
At another time I will discuss the
plan of local government for England.
Ireland and Scotland as a mode of
dealing with the great and cry
ing subject of social disorder
in Ireland. The one broad, blazing,
glaring difference between these conn
tries is that whereas these are well gov
erned, well constituted contested com
munities, Ireland has not attained
tbe primary purposes of civilized life.
I ak whether Mr. Chamberlain's sug
gestions can bs taken is
Well, gentlemen, tbe real rival policy
is coercion. We won t quarrel abont
the word, bnt it means a policy of
special repressive criminal legislation
for Ire'and, to tne exclusion ot tbe re
mainder of Great Brita'n. You must
chooee between a policy of coercion
and a policy of cone l.a ion. Cheers.
Lord Salisbury describes my reference
to his policy of twenty years' coercion
as one of the meet deliberate mis
statements on record. Well, I
hold by it, I mean to hold
by it, I mean to repeat it, I mean to
impress it on the country and I mean
that the country shall fairly have the
nie.ms of com ng to an issue on it, and
to know whether it is true or false.
Prolonged cheers. The Salisbury
liovernment, on tbe 26th of January,
announced, in both bonses a
policy of coercion in Ireland.
The Queen's speech, which had
previous y heralded such announce
ment oi tbe intention to use the se
ver ett measures to repress the Na
tional League wis received by tbe
Tories with frantic cheers, which rang
long and loud. Lord Salisbury may
deny that he advocated coercion,
but his own words and acts
prove that he did. He vainly
endeavors to escape, but he is
caught in a net wherein he is
ioextricably coiled. His other alter
natives are simply quicksand, ever
slipping, ever vanishing. Don't, gen
tlemen, don't stand upon tv oss quick
sands, however imposingly named.
There are only two policies Wore the
country, and it remains with you to
decide between them. Reflect, each
one of you,
each one in the sanctuary of his
chamber, in the sanctuary of his
heart, bis soul, what it is this year of
1886" after nearly a century of con
tinned coercion, becoming weaker an
weaker, more and more odious and
less and less effective as we go along,
repudiated by a large majority of the
Irish members what it is to propose
coercion as an alternative to local gov
ernment in Ireland. Cheers. D not
allow yourselves to be carried away
by craven fears, but believe that by
acting justly yon will act strongly.
Cheers. Justice is always stioog.
Join us in cur effort to close this pain
ful, terrible, awful chapter of the re
lations between England and Ireland,
which for centurb s and cen'uries his
he?n tbe opprobrium of our country
in the eves and judgment of tbe
worid. Join us in this bappy,
yea, holy effo-t, and rely upon it if we
att3inourend it shall bs done mora
perhaps to the honor of Great Britain
than even the happicess of Ireland.
Loud aod prolonged cheers.

Pittsburg. Pa., June 18. The sign
ing tbe scale by the iron manu
facturers has produced a feeling of se
curity in all blanches of businees. It
is the first time in the hietory of the
association that the scale has been
signed 10 early in the summer, and its
effect can scarcely be estimated now.
It is also tbe first time sines 1881 that
it has been signed without a fight,
Tbe coke men see in this early settle
ment of the difficulty a summer's run
which they scarcely anticipated. There
seems to be little doubt that a large
percentage of the ovens will contioue
r'fired up" right along. The closing
down of the mills for a short time for
repairs will bnve but small effect on
the output. The pig-iron men also look
for a fair trale ill summer. They do
not expect high prices, but fair ones.
The nailers aie eatisfied with the out
look. They eay tbe outcome of the
conference wid be either the adoption
of the Mingo scale, or its tigning by
the Pittsburg manufacturers. In the
latter event they claim it will be a
fight of skilled agninst unskilled work
men, ind they will soon run out of the
feeder nailers at Wheeling. The man
ufacturers ot the Mahoning Valley
have asked for a s?para'e conference
for that valley. It Las not been de
cidoi whether the request will be
granted. Th-y bave withdrawn from
the Western Iron Association because
they have never received recognition
on the conference commit'ee.

The Duty on Cartons.
Washington, June 18. Acting
Secretary Fa'rchild, in a letter to Rep
lesentative Bteckenridge of Kentucky
in legard to the estimated receipts and
expenditures for the next fiscal year,
eays that the amount of refunds to be
pa'id under tbe Oberteuffer decision
aa to the duty on cartone, etc., is esti
mated at between $4,000,C00 and 15,
000,000 He says, funher, that the
item of 4,000,000 specified in the
book of (B.imates is for tbe ordinary
and nsual repayment to the importers
of excess of depos ts upon escenained
duties or upon duties and other mon
eys paid under protest. Consequently
tne estimated sum, be rays, should be
increased to abont $8,00.1.000 cr $9,
000,000. He explains that tbe item
of $8,6OO,0CO for debentures, etc , can
not be used for the payment of claims
under tbe Oberteuffer decisirn or
otherwise, except as drawbacks on
imported material exported in tbe
f rm of manufactures. The receipts
for tbe next fiscal year, although
given as estimated at 1315,000,000,
will probably amount to $333,000,000,.
according to tbe raio of interest dur
ing tbe present fiscal year.
