In the lobby of tb. house of commons it is taken for granted that such a report w ill be presented, which will enable the opposition to attack the hient on the subject. Mr. Campbell telegraphs from Antwerp that he lias found no trace of Pigott. A Radical project to give a banquet to Mr Parnell has been taken up with enthusiasm. Mr. Parnell bos intimated his acceptance of the honor. Lord Granville or Lord Rose berry will be asked to preside.

Liberal, in a speech, charged the Irish executive, Mr. Balfour with taking advantage of the parliamentary recess to increase the rigor of his acts of pression toward the Irish people. Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Unionist, dressed the bouse. He contended that the opposition speakers avoided the main issue, The house, he said, was asked to 1C ■! l»r ro h I oousure the government. This request demanded, first, that the views of the government seeking to succeed the present one should be set forth He said the opposition should explain policy. Then there would lie definite presented to the country. In tho course of the debate Mr. T. W. Rus sell made a statement which seemed to ..

Maff Correspondence of Evening Journal. Dover, February 28, —Representative Downham gave notice In the House this afternoon of a high license and option bill combined. The bill in nearly all its essentials resembles the bill read to the Republican caucus a few weeks ago The only material point of differ local ence being that in towns over ten thou sand inhabitants the fee is §600, from three to ten thousand, §400, and under three thousand §200, The bill at the time of its presentation was looked upon as a ridiculous bill and no one im agined that it would ever have the slightest show of passing. There is a sentiment among members of the Honse in favor of a high license law, but this sentiment does not extend to local option and the grouping of these two things together in this bill will do about as much to kill it as other things. An attempt was made to secure caucus action upon the bill but without avail and there eral Republican members who will not vote for the measure unless it is pretty considerably amended. One feature of it that strikes a layman as peculiar is the one giving the rich man the right to have his private bottle in his house, and deny ing the man who is unable to buy a hot tie that privilege. The law is also beyond all bounds of the state. The higli license feature in many respects resembles the Pennsylvania law, and the latter law are sev WlLS framed with Its high figure in view of the large business done in Philadelphia »ml other large cities. The amount paid by our liqnor men at present under our law is of such a nature that it gives them the chance to make a living. In relation to our present law, it has been recently commended by outside state governments. Several state logis lat, ors of other states have recently writ ten to tlie Secretary of State commending it after having received copies. It is not probable that the bill introduced by Mr. Downham will ever receive more than two readings In its present shape, INSURANCE HILL. The recent discussion of Senator Rich ardson's valued Policy bill by the press of Wilmington has caused the subject to assume some shape here. That there is a decided sentiment in favor of the bill there is no doubt, and the opponents of the meosure will have to do considerable hard talking to defeat it. Senator Rich ardson proposes to push the bill to a pat - sage next week. He] lias written to a number of Philadelphia and New York insurance agents, notifying them tliat he would call the bill up on Thursday next, and if they had anything to say iii oppo sition to appear before that time and say it. Senator Richardson said yesterday that he had written to fourteen of the largest firms in Wilmington in relation to the bill and only two of them had written him in opposition. It is proposed to amend the bill in one important par ticular, and when it. comes before the Senate the date which tho bill goes into operation will be changed until January 1, 1890 Senator Dorman introduced his act this morning to incorporate the George tewn, Milton and Drawbridge Railroad Company. The act names as incorpora tors, Charles C. Stockley, Edwin R. Pavnter, Cliarloa H. Rickards, Robert C White, James Ponder. Daniel R. Burton, Jeffry O. Bently, John Ponder, Theodore C.

The contemplated line is not over fourteen miles in length, but will open up a strip of territory that has never had .the advantage of railroad fa cilitles and have been compelled to rely almost exclusively upon water or stages. In winter the people-have for a great ex tent been cut off froqj all commit ideation with the outside world. The in corporators named in the act represent the wealth of the section through which the proposed route passas. The roadway is not to exceed eighty feet ami the com pany lias power to consolidate at any time with any other company. This is dune, no doubt, to give the D., M. & V. KKW HAILROAD. an opportunity to unite witli the pro jected road. It is understood that as soon as the charter is granted the com pany will be organized and arrangements made for commencing work. OFF FOR WASHINGTON. Arrangements have been about Dieted for the trip to the inauguration.

Arrangements have been made for a large room at the National Hotei'for the party. The room will be provided with sleeping dations for forty persons. HOMEOPATHIC SOCIETY.

Tlie resolution introduced by Mr. Whiteman paying for the printing of Insurance Commissioner Pratt's report is a very small matter to take up the time of the Honse. Mr. Pratt, as other state officials, including the adjutant general and state treasurers have done in the past, presented Ids re Dort in a printed form. For this Mr. Whiteman's resolu tion decided payment. Representative Maull objected and after occupying almost a legislative day it was amended jester day afternoon so as to give both Houses the right to print the report if they fit. The result will be if the Senate curs tliat it will pay for the report as now printed, and the House will order ad ditional copies. Representative Maull is generally one of the most fair men in the House and his position on this matter w-as surprising. His personal, popularity gives him considerable power among the members. Had it not been for this Mr, Whiteman s resolution would have passed. « * NTI CHICAGO HEEF. Mr. " hltoman is in favor of his anti C bicago Dressed Beef bill, and the "boy" of the house is not much slower than his older colleagues in shrewdly managing such measures he is in favor of. An ex ample of this was given to dav, Mr. Whiteman ca efully scanned the list of committees and then announced to the House that he did not see any committee that his bill properly belonged and then moved that a committee of six be ap- ! pointed to take care of it. The motion . was adopted and Mr. Whiteman was made chairman. He will thus bave the uX Uc and the chances are decidedly in favor of the committee re-I turning a favorab e report on the meas 1 see (•Mil Mr. Whiteman will leave no stone unturned to secure its passage. PROTECTION OF FISH. , Dr. E. O. Shortlidge was down here to-day ip the interest of the subject that is near to his heart and for which he has done so much, the care of fish.

GOVERNOR OUAV. It is no longer Representative Gray, but Governor Gray. In a moment of forgetfulness at the Builders' Exchange the usually modest member from Wil mlngton represented the whole state of Delaware. The governor was down to respond to this toast,but not being present Gray was thought to be the fit repre sentative. General Kenney, who has been representing the governor in militia mat ters, has put in a claim that Mr. Gray shall not interfere with his prerogative as to militia matters. ure. two bills. DIVORCE CASES. The Divorce Committee held their usual session to-day. Several cases were considered. Among them was one which had a queer ending. T. Ellwood Singley a few weeks ago applied for a divorce from his wife, Kate E. Singley. Singley appeared and made out a good' case. His wife appeared, represented by City Solici tor Turner and the result was that the committee decided to refuse Singley a divorce, but to give his wife one if she desired it. Accordingly a bill was Intro duced with a title that is pretty rough on the husband. It is entitled "An act to relieve Kate E. Singley from the dis ability of coverture." The act changes her name and that of her child. , NOTES. Of the patronesses at the late ball especial credit is due Mrs.-A. B. Richard son, Mrs, Dr. Lewis and Mrs. General Armstrong. They wereon hand early and wore unflagging in their attentions. There is serious contention between the member from New Castle and t*e member from St Georges as to who is the leader of the Anti White 'Cap Singing Society. 6 6 A Wilmington gentleman, speaking of Senator Donahoe, u few days since said that Wilmington has never had such a representative who attends to his busi He advises his constituents who have bills of every move they take The balance left of the ball fund is §15.10. The amount is not as great as was expeced. Just what will be done with the balance has not been deter mined. An effort may be made to have a ball at the wind up of the Legislature. Many kind things are being said about ( olonel Cooper's elegant entertainment to a number of friends, after the hall closed on Tuesday night. In proposing the toasts he had a happy word for everyone.
