Rita Afternoon Sir Charles 1)11 ko, Under Forolgn
Secretary, replying to Unroll Do Worms, Mid ho
ad rocelvod no conflrmallon of tho burning of
blldrcn at the recent firu nt Smorgonl, Russia.
Replying to Mr. Buxton, ho tnld confidential
Jonrorsallons have taken placo betweon Lord
Lyont, tho British ambassador to France, and tho
Mexican Minister at Farls regarding the rcsump
lion of dlplomntlo relations between Euglutid and
uoxlco, but they hare thus far proved rcsuliici.
It reply to Itt. Hon. Itobcrt Uutkc, Sir Charles
pllko refuted Instate whcihor France objoctcd to
Iho dispatch of Turkish troops to Egypt. Ho said
Franco and England still continued to bcllcvo
hot the steps they havo ngrotd up-m in view of
futuro eventualities havo tho aisont of tho powotB
and tho l'orto. ... , . ...
Mr. Olnetstono stated that ho would propoeo that
tho House adjourn to-morrow until Thursday.
Mr. I'arncll resumed tho do! ato on tho repression
(HI. Ho tald ho believed that tho Inferences
drawn from Mr. Dillon's, spoicIi wore unwar
ranted. Ho regrelti d that tho govertimout hnd
not confined iUclf totho arrears r rent bill, w hit h
would have brought about a sittlemont of Irish
Iffalrs. He defended boycotting to n limited ox
Knt, "As practiced by Kiigllau workmen." Tho
feelings of the Irish people before Iho l'hcenlx
I'ark murders wire calming, but all Is now upset
by lrcsh coercion, which will simply play into Iho
(lands of secret societies.
Mr. raruclt raid that ho and his friends In
Srison had certainly never thought that transfer
flandtothe occupiers could bcetTcilcd by any
ether means than by purchase. He entreated tho
roverumeni. even at the last moment, not to shut
The door of conciliation. Mr. Cliarlis Russell,
liberal, monibcr for Dnndalk, though tympa
Ihlilug wlih Irish aspirations, cordially appro ed
the provisions of the bill for the abolition of Juries,
lovylng lines on districts, right of onich, and
gainst tho Importation of nbomlnnblo literature
torn America. ...
Mr. rnmeU'i speech was Tcry moderate and al
foost apologetic.
Mr, Jisso Colllngs, Liberal, predicted that there
would bo a great outcry lu England If anybody
should be hanged In Ireland on Judgment arrived
at without tho verdict or ft Jury.
Mr. John Olvau, Liberal, thought tho bill was
falculatcd to restore peace and order In Ireland,
md tuppross the despotism which was blighting
Iho country,
Mr. Trovclyn, Chlor Secretary for Ireland, ad
mitted that tho government sunt slmult ineously
tacssnges of conciliation and coercion, but pointed
out that the messages were not sent to Ilia address.
JJo raid Earl Sponccr had determined that all
treses of Interference with huls for the shelter of
evicted persons should be submitted to him beforo
tho police were allowed to Intervene.
Mr. Trovclvn stated that Mr. Clifford Lloyd would
not sit In any court under the bill cheers by tho
Irish numbers, 01 tho powers of tho act could
only bo exercised by special magistrates. Tho
powers granted In regard to public meetings would
cnly bo exercised where meetings wero part of the
machinery of violence and dliordcr.
Mr. Cowcn's amendment, declaring that wlillo
tbo Houss Is desirous of aiding the government In
the detection of crime, It disapproves of restric
tions upon tho free expression or public opinion
In Ireland, was rejected by ft vote or &tl to 47.
Tho House then wcut formally Into commlttco
pu tho bill.
Sir Wilfrid Lnwson and Messrs. Labouchcro,
Hurt, Jacob Bright, Story. P. A. Taylor, Carbutt,

SOCIAL INCIDENTS
A GOOD STORY ON THE PRESIDENT.
Ills Trlbalstloas "llh a Hlght-I.lner-Uaktng a
Call Under Dlffltalllt-Why He Did Not
Attend the Rtctpllon of sx
Sierstsrj Hint,
It will be remembered by society pcoplo that
about three weeks ago Minister and Mr. Hunt
gave their farewell reception prior to their depart
ure for Bus i Is.. A little Incident In connection
with that reception Is now given showing tho sim
plicity of our republican Institutions. Tho night
In question was a fearful ouo; rain fell In tor
rents and thero seemed to bo no cessation to
Jove's tears. Tho President had signified his
Intention of being present at the reception, but
hit carrlago was tent ton certain Senatorial resi
dence to com ey somo ladles who wero desirous of
attending, and, In place of his own stylish equip
age, tho President gao ordors to lure a carriage
from a livery stable, and directed tho dthcr to
tako him to Minister Hunt's residence, first asking
the driver If ho know where It wa, to whloh an
afllrmallvo reply was given. Through tho blind
ing storm the Trcsldcnt was drhen, tho car
rlago stopping at a homo that, from tho
outside, did not look as If a brilliant reception w as
In progress. Tho Chief Mnglnrnto acoudcd tho
steps, rang the lull, aud Inquired for Minister
Hutu. Tho saddle-colored Mi miry who opened
Iho door looked surprised, and Mid: "Ho don't
llvohcre." " Who dos?" was Iho next question.
'Rcproientailvo II ." "Tell him I would llku
tn sco him," tald the unlmlled guest. But
tho honorable member from M could
not be seen, as hu was closeted with totno gen
tlemen and had given orders not tn
be dlstutbcd. Thu President Is a man of expe
dients, so he asked to so- Mrs. II. liu w hs ushered
Into the parlor, and found that lady by iho do
mestic hearth, surrounded by n bevy of small
children, w ho woto engaged In playing. Tho lady
was not exactly lu reception attire. When sho
saw her distinguished guest she s'artcd to her feet
In ntnazeincut. but tho l'rosldcut in a
few woids explained Iho predicament ho
was In, and asked his liosless II she
could toll him where Minister Hunt lived. This
she could not do, but her lltltnr list wou d supply
the dislrcd Information. Mrs. It went to a tablo
for that Indlsi cnsublo article, while tho President
Waited, holdlughl'i tint and coat In hit baud, lhe
children cared lu open-mouthed wonder at the
scene. Of course tho hook wns not where it ought
to havo V ecu. and every table drawer In tho room
was searched for tho missing article. But thu
search was frulile". As it last resntirro the lady
wcntupstilrs to her bed-room nnd thero found
what she wanted. Tho Information was commu
nicated to iho President who went on his way,
nobody clso at thai tlmo knowing anything of the
little occurrence, and as a carrlago could not be
procured ho had tn walk tlie balance of tho Jour
ney, This Is thj way riusldeut Arthur attended
