THE CM HEP KIWGPWM.
Home Rule Agitations Kept up in
Parliament.
London, February 18.—Maurice Healy,
member for Cork City, asked tbe Gov
ernment today in tbe Commons whether
since the refusal of John Daly,
a life convict in Cheatham prison,
to connect the Parnellites with dyna
mite outrages, he had to be treated
with enhanced severity, Healy re
quested that a sworn inquiry be made
as to Daly's treatment, or that members
of the House who desired to investigate
the matter, be allowed th& name access
to the prisoner as allowed the agent of
the London Times. Matthews, Home
Secretary, Baid he had no authority to
grant the request for a Bworn inquiry.
He denied the allegations against the
prison officials, and said Daly had stated
that he had no complaint to make of his
treatment.
Bannerman (Homerruler) resumed
the debate on the address. He summed
up the case against the Government by
declaring that it had wilfully resorted to
coercion when coercion had proved to be
worse than useless.
Balfour said during the present debate
the administration of affairs in Ireland
had been compared to the tyranny of
Russia, although everybody knew the
comparison was nonsensical. The en
deavor of the Government was to free
Ireland from the bondage of an unscrup
ulous conspiracy; to suppress intimida
tion ;to give to the people the common
rights that all people were supposed to
possess in civilized countries. He trusted
the House and the country would con
tinue to support the policy that had done
so much for Ireland.
At the end of the debate a vote was
taken on Parnell's amendment to the
address, which was rejected, 307 to 240.
THE PARNELLITES CONGRATULATED.
The Council of Liberal Federation
passed resolutions congratulating Parnell
and hia colleagues upon the result of the
investigation, regretting that all persons
responsible for the forgeries were not
called to account by the commission, and
demanding that the Government offer
reparation to Parnell.
CAPTAIN O'SHEA'S CASES.
Captain O'Shea in his suit for divorce
has failed in his supplementary petition
which extends the period within which
the alleged acts of adultery were com
mitted.
The probate, divorce and admiralty
division of the High Court of Justice
refused to grant the application of Cap
tain O'Shea for attachments against the
Star and the London edition of the New
York Herald for publishing certain com
ments relative to the action for divorce
brought by O'She* against his wife, in
which Parnell is named as co-repondent.
In the case of the Freeman's Journal, of
Dublin, against which similar applica
tion was made, the court imposed a fine
of JEIOO and costs.
THE GOVERNMENT AND MINERS.
A deputation of miners today visited
Earl Dunraven and Lord Randolph
Churchill, both of whom assured the
deputation that they favor the limita
tion of the working hours by the State.
Matthews, Home Secretary, replying
to a deputation of miners, told them he
could hold out no hope tbat the Govern
ment would support tbe eight-hour bill.
