ROW IN THE COMMONS.
The Irish Members Making It Tropical. MR. BrLFOUB GETS A BENEFIT. Chamberlain Chatted for Takinj; His Seat on the Treasury Benches lor a Chat. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Hikaii London, March 21. —In the Commons this alieruoon B.iron de Worms, Parlia mentary Colonial Secretary, read a tele gram from the Cape saying Captain Sea grave was dismissed from the Cape in fantry for trosß neglect of duty and breach of trust, The reading of tho dis patch was followed by a scene of great disorder. Irish members rose and cheered aud (hero were cries of "Pigott! Pigott! Keinembor Mitchellstown!" etc. On quiet being resford, Balfour, Chief Secretary for Ireland, said he had sus pended Seagrave but preferred not to dismiss him until documentary evidence of his guilt was received. Home Secretary Matthews admitted that Police Inspector Andrewß visited America since the passage of tho Paruell Commission Bill, but he did not know whether Andrews had seen La Caron, the informer, there. Captain Seagrave commanded the con stables in the Michellstown riots in 18S7. On tho vote on Balfour's salary Morley severely criticized the Government's ac tion in carrying on a "furtive and clan destine battle behind its opponents' backs." Bradlaugh moved that Balfour's salary be reduced by £500. Healy said he had tried to cross-ex amine Soames on his mode of getting up evidence, but the 'limes'* chief ally, Justice Smith, the chairman, interrupt ing, called upon Healy to withdraw his reference to her majesty's Judge. Balfour, again rising to answer the criticisms, faunted the Parnellites with allowing I'igott to escape after he had confessed the forgery. O'Connor was called to order for charging Lord Salis bury and Balfour with trying to galvan ize the Parnell forgerieß into life again. An exciting ecene ensued. O'Connor twice refused to withdraw his remark as far as it concerned Lord Salisbury, amid the approving cries of his colleagues. The chairman appealed to the mem bers of both sides to assist him in keeping order, but he did not further insist upon the with drawal of O'Connor's remarks. O'Con nor charged that tho Times was equally guilty of allowing Pigott to go, after ho confessed tbe forgeries. When a division was called for, Cha mberlain crossed tho House and eat chat ting with Ritchie, a member of the Cabinet. His presence on the Minis terial tide of the House called forth from ! the opposition hilarious cries of "At last you are in your proper place." 1 Bradlaugh's motion was rejected. Morley ■danced a mass of details res pecting tbe witnesses for the Times, with tho view of disproving the Government's professions of neutrality. Balfour had professed that he had not fol- ' lowed the procedings of the Par nell Commission with much interest. That was surprising. In regard to the ' proposed vote of censure it would be ' irratienal to propose it now because fresh 1 dißcloseres were made daily, but it would come ii good time. Balfour, amid continued opposition laughter, de scribed tho charge that the Government was connected with the Times, through Houston and Piggott, as a scandalous aud nnfounded libel. The opposition, he said, reveled in the libel while affecting to regard it as the most shocking of crimes. (For asking how it was that witnesses were intimidated, Balfour was called to order by the Chairman.) Con tinuing, he said that the Gov ernment volunteered no informa tion for the purpoees of the Commission, but they were willing to give it to either side when required. Sir William Vernon Harcourt said the fact that the Irish Con stables wore subptenaed did not make it necessary f r them to remain for months in London, unless they were performing distinct services for the Times. Brad laugh said tho Government had withheld from the persons accused, matter mate rial to their defense. HEBBI it C HlStlAltf K'S TRIP. Its Object Is the Formation of au Anglo.Uermaii Alllnnce. Berlin, March 21.—Count Herbert Bisinnrck started to-day for Loudon. The Boersen Zeitung says the objsct of hie journey is to personally settle the last question at issue in connection with the rapprochement between England and Germany, and adds: The fact that only such divergence exists as a personal ex planation can reconcile justifies the hopes of an Anglo-German alliance. Naughty Nobility. London, March 21.—The Marchioness of Donegal has brought suit against her husband for divorce on the ground of cruelty and desertion. The case was heard to-day. The Marchioness testified that she was married to defendant in 180"). She left her husband's in 1872. Previous to leaving, they occupied separ ate rooms. One night respondent brought a friend home with him and dragged her from her bed into the pas sage where his friend was. The defense produced a witness, who testified that Lady Donegal had committed adultery with a groom employed by her husband and with another man. The case against the Marquis was dis missed. The counter suit that the Mar quis brought against Lady Denegal was also dismissed. The Rothaclillda Accused. Paris, March 21.—1n the Chamber of Deputies to-day, Laur, in the discussion on interpellation in the copper erisiß, de manded that the penal code provision against monopolies be enforced. He ac cused the Rothschilds of causing the crisis, and of leading an international plot against the French market, and urged the necessity of an inquiry into the crisis. Bouvier, Minister of Finance, ridiculed Laur's speech. The allegation againet the Rothschilds, he said, was un derstood, and its refutation could be left to the public's good sense. The Comp toir d'Eecompte would have suspended but far the assistance rendered it. The Cdmptoir d'Escompte deserved the Gov ernment's solicitude. If any loss occurred in connection with the first loan, it would be. Bismarck's Naval Idea. Bkblin, March 21.— In the Reichstag, to-day. tbe estimates for increasing the horsing of the artillery passed to a sec ond reading. The bill providing for a dual administration of the naval depart ment also passed to a second reading. In tbe debate on the latter bill Bismarck, replying to Richter's criticism, showed that the responsibility of the naval authorities to the Reichstag would be in no way altered. The charge, he said, was THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING. MARCH 22, 1889 a constitutional one. He declined to be 1 responsible for the Commander of the Navy. The plan only involved the ap plication to the navy of a system that ' already had been teßted in the army, namely, the placing of an Admiral-in- Chief at the head of the Navy. The General-in-Chief was at the head of the army, of course. The Emperor was supreme commander of both branches. The Hungarian Blots. Pkstii, March 21.—Rioting was re newed here to-night.

San Francisco, March 21.— \n Exam iner's Washington special says: L. Mizner started for California to-night satisfied that further efforts to secure the Mexican mission were fruitless. The California delegation have practically prepared their slate for the Federal offices in San Francisco and elsewhere throughout the State. Mizner, it is said, will be consoled for his failure, to secure the Mexican mission by his uppointment as Superintendent of the Mint. Timothy Guy Phelps, it is thought, will receive the delegation en dorsement for the Collectorship of the Port. General W. H. Dimond has tele graphed to his friends in this city that, failing the Suporintendency of the Mint, he will compromise on the postoffice. It is aso regarded as probable that E. P. Danford, of San Francisco, will be given the naval office. Paris Kil bourne, of Salinas, will be en dorsed for tho Surveyor-Generalshiy. The District Attorneyship has practically narrowed down to Carter, of Red Bluff, antl John Lord Love, of San Francisco. For the Collett r hip of Internal Rev enue, General Sheehan, of San Francisco, and F. C. Frank of San Jose are the most promising candidates. When the delegation will meet again, has not yet been determined, but it will probably be within a day or two. If anything like united action is had, something definite regarding the disposition of the California patronage ought to be known when they adjourn. Editor Osborne, of Lob Ange les, occupies an excellent position in the contest for the office of Public Printer. A Boland'for an Oliver. San Francisco, March 21. —The Examiner's Washington special says: President Harrison, it is said, will make no nomination to the Court of St. James until after Mr. Pauncefote, the recently appointed Minister to this country has arrived. The delay of the Salisbury government in Bending a successor to Lord Sackville West, was intended as a snub to the Cleveland auminietration, but it was in reality an effront to the entire American people, and this is tbe construction which, it is understood, President Cleveland put upon it. So long as the English mission to this coun try is unfilled, our national self-respect requires that t his country be unrepre sented at the Court of St. James. Gen eral Harrison has, thuß far, received no official notification of Mr. Pauncefote's appointment nor can he until Mr. P.iuncefote arrives in Wasuingion and presents big credentials.

P. 8. 0., specialist in dise»seß of the Head, Throat aud Chest, including the Eye, Ear and Heart. Tho state of the atmosphere impresses itself directly on Ihe mucous lining of the nasal pas sages, throat windpipe, bronchial lubes and air-cells of the lung*. Sudden changes in tbe temperature of tbe air are Immediately felt over the whole ni this extended surface. Coolness and humidity render the air irritating to tbe mucous membrane, irritation ends in conges tion, and congestion is the first stage of Inflam mation—ihe parent of all those chronic catarrh al affections of tbe nose, threat and broncbial tubes, which ultimately end in consumption. Nearly eighty per cent, of the cases of con sumption begin by congestion of tbe mucous membrane of the nasal passages, throat and bronchial tubes produced by colds. To that extent, therefore, consumption springs directly from the dump and changeable weather. It Is iufUmrnatory and purely local in Us early stage —quite ss much so as inflammation of the eyes or quinsy of the throat, and must be treated in tbe same direct manner. It is a rule of medical practice, established by ages of experieuce, that every discate which is local—that is to say, has Its seat in any one organ or part of the body—requires for its cure the direct application of the remedies 10 such organ or part. When this can be done, the disease Is generally curable, and when it can not be done It is, U Berlous, generally fatal. The same mucouß membrane is spread over tbe globe of the eye. Uneß tbe tear passage and in terna! surface of tho no*c, covers the throat, passes down the windpipe, and becomes the iiuing of tbe delicate ami innumerable air cells of the lULgs. When cold produces Inflamma tion of the eye in one person and acute catarrh of the head in auother, the cause t the disease aud the membranes affected are alike in every respect. When cold produces a sore throat iv one person and congestion of tha laugs in ano'ber, there 1b no difference in tbe diseased action of the twocate?, or in the principles of treatment required for their cure. It is mu cous membrane that is involved in both cases. But many treat these similar diseases of same membrane widely different, and, as a conse quence, cure one and fail to euro tbe other. For the eye they apply eyewashes and oint ments directly to the inflamed parts and are generelly successful. In tho nose is applied nothing to ihe diseased putts and catarrh be- - comes seated and is thought to be incurable. For an inflamed throat they prescribe gargles and applications to the throat, and generally cure. For the samo disease a little lower down —In the windpipe and bronchial tubes—they make no direct application, bat dose tbe pa tient's stomach, and. as a consequence often fail tocure Would it not be foolish to pretend to cure an inflamed eye or a sore throat by dos ing the stomach.' Well, It is just as great a mistake to treat catarrh and diseases of the air passages of the lungs by dosing tbe stomach alone. The fatality of lung diseases is not dne, as many people suppose, to the malignity of their nature or the importance cf their breathing organs. It is the inevitable result of gross neg lect of the means of care within tho reach of all. Properly treated by direct medication, lung diseases are aB curable as other maladies. If any satisfactory resnlt were attained by constitution treatmeut alone in lung cases—if they cured considerable proportion of such cases—it might reasonably be doubted whether the direct featmentof inbalatloncouid accom plish better results. But the fact is, they do but very little good. Even in hospitals, where tbe diet, exerc.se and general habits, as well as their medical treatment, are emirc ! y uuder the control of physicians, very few well defined diseases of the lungs can he shown to have been cured by tbe stomach treatment out of every thousand cases to treated. It has been so uni formly unsuccessful that most people have come to regard consumption as equivalent to the hand ol death! In giving it up, therefore, those having lung diseases abandon nothing, save the cert.dnty of au earthly grave for a hope of life and health. Now, look et the results attained by the direct treatment of the limes by inhalation. In all ordinary casos of catarrh, bronchitis and asthma, improvement immediately takes place, and they go ou to complete cure In consump tion tbe disease is more obstinate, but these cases ultimately get well Even iv desperate cases benefits always result Irom inhalations, and we can point to hundreds of such cases which were given over to die and pronounced hopeless, and yet recovered and are now living. These facta are easily certified to by thousands of living witnesses at the present day. M.
