As Xirelj a Scene in the House of Com mons 03 Could be Asked For. BLOODSHED PBEYNTD BY COATTAILS That tbe Tailor Bad Fortnnatelj 1'astened to the Garment to Slay. Some very fanny incidents were noted during the naval parade given by Queen Victoria, MonSay, for the delectation of her royal grandson, the yonng Kaiser. The scene a couple of days later in the Honse of Commons had also some laughable features, but it came near ending more seriously. 1BT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH J London, August 10. The great naval review, which was effectually wet down last Saturday, came off successfully on Monday. The ruler of Germany seemed duly im pressed, and made himself very affable. He inspected several of the ships, and talked freely with the officers, examining care fully every novel feature pointed out to . him, and especially those improved weapons lately served out to some of the ships. The electrical appliances also demanded some share of his attention, and so much was he convinced of the great strength of the flotilla that he is reported to have said that the central European powers, allied with England, could defy the world. Eng land, however, does not mean to join in any such alliance at present, though the leaning of this Government is undoubtedly toward the Kaiser. A NtTMBEB OF FUIflTT TALES. There many interesting features 'at the in spection of ships, and some funny tales are told of prominent people. John Jlorley traveled down in a light sporting suit,mean ing to change it for a yachting suit when he arrived, but on getting aboard the new 'White Star Liner Teutonic he dropped his bag overboard and was consequently ren dered uncomfortable for the remainder of the day. To make matters worse, when be went ashore at night his hat blew off and he traveled back to London with a handker chief tied around his head. Joe Chamberlain, who was also on board the Teutonic, set out to rule the ship, and was particularly amazed when a newspaper man kept him waning 20 minutes lor his bath. Baron Alfred de Hothschild, however, was the victim of what might have been A SEBIOUS ACCIDENT. He was sitting beside the forehatclt on one of the Peninsula and Oriental steamers, resting his leg on. a ledge. Suddenly some sight caused the passengers tc rush to the forepart of the vessel, and in the scramble the covering of the hatch fell, crushing poor Alfred's leg. To make matters worse, two Lascars who rushed up to assist him jumped on the hatch in order to press the covering down, entirely ignoring the fact that His Lordship's leg was what pre vented the cover from being rammed home. Eventually they were made t understand the situation, and the man of bullion was rescued, much cut and bleeding profusely, but with no limbs broken. It was par ticularly hard on Lord Alfred, because it spoiled a fine piece of sport, for he was having a delightful flirtation at the time the accident happened with a pretty girl on a neighboring yacht. 2fext to the naval review the military sham fight at Aldersbot interested the Ger man Emperor. He rose in the middle of . the night in order to be on the field in time, and, favored by brilliant weather, he had as Rood an experience of England's little army as one could wish. THE LUDICBOTTS TAET of the day's business happened, however, just as the fieht ended and the march past began. A German Admiral attached to the London Embassy, one of those officers who, having spent their youth at sea, wax fat on shore in age, essayed to make his obeisance to his master from horseback, and came up at a smart canter for that purpose, emulating bis military brother who preceded him. He pulled his horse np short, and described a graceful parabola over the animal's head, and sat dowmon his cocked htt, that had reached the ground before him. There was a rear of laughter from the thousands of spectators which shook the hills. The Em peror tried hard to preserve his gravity, bnt the sight of the fat sailor sitting on the peak of hisJown hat was too much, and William finally laughed loudest of all. He made amends, however, by riding up to the displaced horseman and shaking hands, while he expressed the hope that the officer was not hurt. He could not help laughing, however, as he rode away, and the Admiral feels that his career is blighted. NEAELT CAME TO BLOWS. The scene in the House of Commons Thursday night, when Harrington made an effort to inflict personal chastisement upon Balfour, was the first event of that nature that has occurred since the memorable oc casion when Mr. Plimsoll crossed the floor, shook his fist in the faces of the occupants of the Treasury bench, and defied that august body to combat. Perhaps Balfour does not realize how narrowly he escaped a thrashing and Par liament a fearful scandal. The wanton and deliberate insult to Harrington had in flamed every Irishman present, and the first blow that was struck would have been the signal for a conflict that might have in volved the entire House of Commons, Sexton had already picked out his man in Colonel Saunderson, whom he bade prepare to deiend himself in a voice that was heard above the imploring shouts of the chairman and the din of factions. Healywas on his feet bej-ging somebody to tread on his coat, and the rest of the Parnellites were begin ning to TUEN BACK THEIB 'WEISTBANDS, when the badly frightened "Clara," as the members of Parliament term the lackadaisi- cal Irish Secretary, hurriedly apologized. If Harrington's coat tails had been made of less strong material, orbadMahoney.who slid down.the aisle holding to them, been a stone or two lighter, the angry Irishman would have had Balfour by the throat be fore he conld have nttered his apology. So brutal was tbe affront to Harrington that not one of the journals, even of Bal four's own party, defends his conduct. All the circumstances tended to heighten the in 1 suit. Harrington, who is a big, rollicking Irishman, with a kind word lor even his party enemies, and not a bit of malice in his moral composition, has only recently finished a six months' term in prison, whither he was Bent at Balfour's instance, and his pale, heavily lined face bears witness to the Suffering he has undergone. how haeehtoton wjls treated. Harrington will not talk to even his closest friends of the humiliation he was subjected to in prison, but it is known that the amount of his food was reduced while he was preparing his defense for theParnell Commission, and that, by Balfour's orders, everything that was possible to break the prisoner's indomitable spirit was done dur ing those terrible six months. Balfour started tbe storm that tossed him by asserting, in explaining the refusal of the notorious Roche and Colonel Turner to subscribe to a race meeting because Har rington was one of the committee, that Har rington had written of the police in his inewspaper, the Kerry Sentinel, as cowards, J lliars and uniformed bloodhounds. It was not much of itself, because Irish (members do not hesitate to term the police cowards, liars and bloodhounds, at they are, but in this instance as it has been in many others, the statement was a falsehood INVENTED FOB THE OCCASION, as the only means whereby Balfour might excuse the ruffianly conduct of his allies. Consequently Harrington arose and de manded to know in what number of his paper the article had appeared, iiairour 'flippantly responded that he made the statement on the best authority, and went on talking. Harrington interrupted him to demand wha,t that best authority was, and the big Irishman's voice trembled with sap pressed passion. Balfour, without noticing the question, went on with his address, and again Har rington thundered, "What is .the authority?" Then Balfour, looking di rectly into the face of the man he had so recently victimized and humiliated, made a gesture indicative of such utter contempt and scorn that Harrington completely lost control of himself. It was an insult that cannot be described in words, but that was not the less bitter. The tailor who pnt in the stitches that at tached the skirts of Harrington's coat to the body of that garment is to be credited with having saved the Honse of Commons from as pretty a row as ever was witnessed in a civilized Legislature, LATE NEWS IN BRIEF.

Citizens Have Certain, Civil Eights, Ee gardleM of Their Disbelief in THE EXISTENCE OF A BDPEEHE BEING. An Important Jktldtn on a Grave CoasUtuUoaal Question. Judge Dixon, of tbe Supreme Court of New Jersey, has handed down an opinion deciding that a witness cannot be debarred from testifying because he denies the ex istence of a future state of rewards and pun ishment. SrXCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISFATCH.l Tbenton1, N. J., August 10. Judge Dixon, of the Supreme Court of this State, has delivered an opinion that is decidedly of national interest. It is probably the first instance of a Supreme Court, or any high court,-in this country deciding that a man's civil rights as set forth in the Constitution are more important than the common law rule that no person can be a witness in a" ju dicial proceeding who denies that God will punish perjury. Although Judge -Dixon delivered the opinion, it must be remem bered that it was the opinion of the entire Supreme Court of New Jersey, ovith the ex ception ot Judge Depue, of Newark, who dissented from the decision of his associates. The case came before tbe court in the shape of an appeal from the Essex County Conrt of Common Pleas. That minor tri bunal, through Judge Kirkpatrick," re fused to allow a man to testify on his own behalf in an action for debt, because of his denial of punishment for perjury by the Almighty. He stated that he believed in the existence of a supreme being, and did not deny a future state, bnt he believed the penalty prescribed by the State would be the only punishment he would receive in case he gave false testimony while under oath. The witness was deemed incompe tent, and because he could not give his evi dence he lost his suit. It was on the appeal from the decision of the Jower court that the Supreme Court rendered the opinion in question and overruled the original de cision. The following is what Judge Dixon, speaking for the court, said: THE SUrBEUE COURT'S OPINION. Assuming tbe common law rule to be that no person can be a witness in a judicial proceeding unless he believes that God will punish perjury, it becomes necessary to consider the effect of that clause in the first article of our State Con stitution, which declares that '-no person shall be denied tbe enjoyment of any civil right merely on account of his religions principles." By statute, parties in suits are generally com petent witnesses in their own behalf, and when the prosecutor tendered himself as a witness in his own behalf before the Common Pleas his right to testify would have been conceded had he believed that God would punish perjury. His right was denied merely because he did not so believe. It was not that he did not think himself bound to tell the truth according to his oath, but only that he had not an affirmative faith that the Divine Being would inflict some penalty upon him if he violated his obligation. Two questions, therefore, arise first, is the right of a party to testify in his own behalf a I civil right; second, is tbe belief ot a person as to whether God will nunlsh neriurv to Hucmer uvu win u nKh,ts whicl1 '?e """"CJPat law will enforce, at the Instance of private individuals, for tbe nnr- pose of securing to them the enjoyment of their means of happiness. They are distinguishable from natural rights, which would exist If there were no municipal law, some of which are abro gated by municipal law, while others lie oat. side of its scope, and still others are enforcea ble nnder it as civil rights. They are also dis tinguishable from political rillits which are directly concerned with the institution and ad ministration of government. Among civil rights is tbe right to prosecute and defend actions in tbe courts of the Commonwealth according to the established rules of practice. TJils propo sition is sufficiently vindicated by a reference to the civil rights cases in the Supreme Court of the United States, where it is assumed as true by all the justices of that tribunal. DEFINING RELIGIOUS BELIEF. The next question is whether a person's be lief as to tbe punishment of perjury by the Deity is to be classed among nis religious prin ciples. This is, I think, equally clear. Relig ious principles are those sentiments concerning the relations between Qod and man which may influence Human conduct. Of these, perhaps, the most influential hitherto has been the view entertained as to the probability that God would punish vice A person's sentiments on that subject must be deemed part of his relig ious principles. It is ureed that disbelief can not be called a religious principle. Perhaps, if one denied the existence of a Supreme Be ing it might in a proper sense be said that he had no religious principles, because he could not entertain any opinion touching the relations between God and man, unless a denial of any such relations might De so denominated. Bnt to a person who believes in tbe existe&e of a Bunreme Being there pertain necesc arilv. or at least probably, some views with regard to the relations between him and us which modify the life of the individual. The mere fact that in those relations he has discovered no Divine purpose of punishment for specific acts does not militate against his possession of religious principles, and among them are his belief, his disbelief, and his doubt concerning those rela tions. From these premise: it seems to follow tbat when a party claims tbe statutory right to testify In his own behalf, he cannot be denied on the ground that he does not believe-God will punish perjury. v It may be suggested that the civil rights pro tected by this clause of the Constitution are only those which were recognized when the Constitution was framed, and that, therefore, the right of a litigant to be a witness for him self having been created since tbat time, it is not among those thns secured. But It would, I think, be unreasonably cramping this provision thus to confine it. One of THE GREATEST CAUSES which led to the settlement of the American colonies was the desire of the immigrants that their Government should not make discrimina tion against them because of their religions tenets. It was not so much that they esteemed any particular privilege denied to them as of value sufficient to warrant their expatriation, but they insisted upon the more general doctrine, tbat their belief or disbelief on religious topics should not debar them from rights which the laws afforded to other subjects. Even up to the time of the Revolution, this doctrine had not broadened out into the principle which we now consider Inst; for in the Colonial Constitution of July 2, 1776, equality of rights was claimed for only those of Protestant faith, tbe language being "tbat no Protestant Inhab itants of this colony shall be denied the enjoy ment of any civil right merely on account of his religious principles." But evidently the framcrsof tbat instrument were aiming to establish a rule of action which would control the operations of all departments of the gov ernment that they were forming, and not merely to guard tbe rights they had previously it was pecanse tnose ngnts nad Absolutely Pure Tills powder never varies.
