He expressed his pleas ure at Lord Roseberry s consistent con tinuance of the foreign policy that had raised England in the estimation of na tions whose people were yearly showing a desire for pence, which would be main tained if the rules would be governed by their people's will. He regretted there still remained a subject for painful medita tion. "Every day," he said, "reminds us that Ireland is not yet inhabited by a con cordant and homogenous people It u too early to enter into the details, but It is the duty of every government to devote its whole energies to freeing the loyal people of In land from the constraints upon them, whether in the form of riot or the more dangerous, insidious and effective for m of outrage and intimidation. While admit ting the great difficulty and responsibility of the task, which are so great that a previous government, equally anxious with ourselves, only succeed temporarily and to an imperfect extent, we possess an advan tage over our predecessors which we hope to turn to good use. We bear a mandate from the people deciding finally and in my opinion irrevocably the question which has wrecked the peace of Ireland (cheer). The question of an independent government in Ireland after a deep discussion and advo cacy bv the most powerful statesman this country lias ever seen lias been rejected emphatically and unequivocally by an enormous majority of the |ieople of the kingdom. (Loud cheers), it is not un worthy to remark that most of the voices in favor of separation have been obtained by the influence of that great statesman, and upon oilier considerations apart from the merits of the question. I believe that our opponents will eventually admit that this is England's final desision, armed with which it is our duty to restore in Ireland that social order, the loss of which is only a just cau«e of its discontent , I ; I Lotting*s L»se.

It is certain that the state of Chihuahua lias as good a right to her peculiar code as lias France, from which country Chihuahua took her exam ple.
