Lord Itoicbery'n nd ministration hns passed successfully through a storm which Its opponents hoped would overwhelm It, and which many of IN frlendts belhrvftl would require the most rklllful stnttsmnnslitp to weather. Despite the prediction oC the Conservative pa pers and the more or less badly disputed fears or the Liberal orcans, the irovernment came out of the content with Ilylnir colors nnd n majority that surprised even those who would nt no tlmo ndmlt that there wits a chance of defeat. The question that rM,"i"lt.l t n t rwl f It n ilrmtrnrnlli fa It It n t Inf-i Hutu i tnado by Hr Henry .Tnmcs, formerly nttor- ' ey ireneral In Mr. Gladstone's cabinet, but ('ho abandoned the Liberal party on the Jrliifrlntr forvvnid of the Irish home rule fchonie. lly standbier order No. 17 of the louse 'of commons, n member may move I tor the adjournment of the lioiso for the J purpose of dlscusslnir a matter of piddle .' fimporcance. t minis nuvnnincxe or tins or f dcr, Sir Henry to-dnv moved tho adjourn- intent In order to call attention to the Im port duties on cotton recently decided up on by tho Rovernment nf India. It Is claimed by m iny of tho manufacturers of Manchester and other cotton centers In Lancashire that the Imposition of these duties has had a most serious effect on their business, and they desired tho Im perial government to Intervene for their nbolltlon. The cotton Interest Is Rtrongly represented In the house, and when the notice of tho motion was" given. It wa.s con jectured by not only many Conservative v papers, but by some of tho staunch Liberal organs, that the government, which was bound to oppose the desired change, would be overthrown by the Lancashire pirly, In combination with Conservatives and Llber nls Interested In the cotton trade. The I'arnellltes. too. were enectetl to cast their otes against the government but tho result did not bear out the hopes or fears of the polltlc.il parties, for, bv a ma jority of 19", the ItosHjery ministry til umphnntly repelled the attacks of Its as sailants. This result was In a measure duo to the nttltude of Mr. Coschen, who, though a Liberal-Unionist, dealt with th question in a spirit of great fairness to ward tho government. He suggested the holding of a conference In order to rem edy the deficit In India, for wjileh purpose tho cotton duty and the excise duty on cot ton were laid. When the division enmo to bo taken on the motion, It was found that a large number or Conservatives and Liberal-Unionists, and also several members repre senting Lancashire districts, went Into the government camp In a body. Among those, who voted against the government was the Ittght Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, who, It Is stated, was responsible for the pushing of the motion. Haron de Rothschild anil several other Llheral-Unlonnlsts nlmtnlneilrom voting. The motion was defeated by n Hrge ma jority, the vote standing .101 against 10S In favor of it. ii:t wisis rouNi iii:ai. A Traveling Muu Suct'iiinbs tn nn Overdose f Morphine at Mexico.

HAYWARD IN HIS0WN BEHALF. Ills Appcirnnrc nnd .trtliiii mi tlin witness Miind Nut Much In Ills I'm or. Minneapolis, Minn., t'eb. 21, Nervous, contradictor), uncertain, garrulous, rntnh llnir, and explanatory. These words explain the nspect of llnrry Hnyvvnril on the stand this afternoon, In the morning when he was answering preliminary iptcstlons lu regard to his life, his gambling habits, etc., he was concise, perfectly nt ease, ipilck to answer, nnd lnide ntt Ideal witness In the afternoon, when his attorney bCRnn to leid him Into the details of the circum stances ntlendlng the tragedy, he went "up In the air," as a horseman would say, ami made a bid Impression. In fact, Hnyward made such n poor Job of telling his own stnrv that the court sug gested th.i tl would be better to get on with the evidence and not explain motives nnd beliefs so much. In regard to the Insanity theory regarding Adry, It an expert were to contrast the two, so far as appearance on the stand were concerned, llurr) would bo the suf ferer. He was nervous and did not know what to do with his hands. At one time they would be adjusting his collar, at an other, caressing his knees; at another, helping himself to move about In his chair; At times his voice would sink nvvav until It was lurdlv audible, and once he had to be cautioned to speak so thnt the Jury could hear him. Hardly a person In tint vast crowd hearing him believed what he said. Judging by liH manner of telling (he story. As a whole, from the testimony given by the witness, he has not made any points for himself, and his appearance Ins told against him. According to his stoiy, his gambling de.ll at Chicago, with Miss illng as a partner, was In the enrlv pirt of the year, and llnnlly, In August, he refused to use her monev lor (hat nurnose. The wit ness tried to carry the Impression lo the Jury that he suspected that she was pur suing her gambling with others, but It was only Innuendo. Strange to say, the state's attorney made no objection, allowing him to have all the rope he wanted. Ills ex planations and opinions were nil allowed to go In without comment. Sir. Nye liked them. They gave him latitude for cross examination. One queer point was that while Harrv Insisted that he never lonned Miss GIng the $2,500, but only gave it to her to Keep for him until he ilennnded It, her notes to him refer to it ns a loan. One feature was when he took the long letter written to Miss GIng by 111 m. In which he sold that he wanted her to let him have the monev. In the otlglnnl ap peared some very light pencil inaiks. He tried to explain that he did not know they were there when he wrote, nnd finally said It did not make any difference anyway, for the meaning was the same, whether the pencil words were used or the ones in Ink. If he had made the marks he thought they would have been In Ink. When he came to thnt part of the tes timony which brought him to the day of the murder, he was more halting, and moie uncertain than ever. OKLAHOMA'S NEW LIBEL LAW.

In the course of his speech Mr. Allen refened to icports thnt Mr. Teller and Mr. Veit were I'opullsts and he extended to them a coidl.il welcome to the 1'opullst ranks.

Catholic schools had heietofore beta omit ted from the bill and the committee omit ted the Lincoln school nt Philadelphia and Hampton school, Virginia, because thev were Protestant schools. Thn bill alMi provided for the government pur chase of Indian schools now owned by rations denomination. Mr. Lodge said the seeretaiy of the In tel lor had leeo'iunendeil the gridunl abol ition ot sectnil.in schools and they had cairltd out this poller Hut the senate committee Hied to Include two charitable schools which were not supporte-d Itv nny chinch or denomination. It was an effort to obscure the plain policy urged by the secretarv of the Intel lor to abolish denom inational schools. .Mr Haw ley urged that In abandoning sectoilan schools theie should be no aban donment of Christian teachings In govern ment schools lie would rather have ,i school run by .1. suits than lo have one with no find III it Wlille Mr Iianlel (Dora , Vn ) was urging that no one denomination iimtrolled the board of the.

"The) me 111 charge of Protest ants, Just ns 1'atliullc schools are lu charge of Catholics." II.. said nt the Lincoln school at Phila delphia a Catholic child who sought to go to a Catholic chinch was told by u teacher that "i:pseopalluii chinches were good enough tor public pupils " In vlovv of the; excitement throughout the countr) on this subject the committee had decided lo make a clean swtep ot both Catholic and Piot estant schools, Mr, Hoar made the point that these two schools weio no more sectnil.in than were the West Point nnd Annapolis academies.

Washington, l'eh. ill. (Spe. lal 1 There wns an nmnslng ns well ns Instructive In cident lo.d.i) In the senate contributed bv Senators Vest nnd Chandler Sciiitm- Vest continues to view Senator Chandler with Increased alarm. Somehow no one equals the New Hampshire senator hi being able lo disturb the senator from .Missouri The matter was up to relieve corporations from submitting to the collector ot Inter nal revenue a list of the names of cni plo)es with salaries coming under the In come tnx law. The senator from Missouri hail reported a colifoience amendment to this elTect, Somehow he had reached the conclusion while out In confluence that this wool I be a species of Invf stlgallon th it should tiol be Imi'OTil on corporations, Following this statement Senator Chand ler said that the conference piovlsloti ot feretl by the senator from .Missouri was a very Important thing to all ecu iterations, All others were compelled to show a siliry roll, but as to corporations It was tt eating ihem very kindly to relieve theiii or lids duty. If the original provision should be come law corporations might be cnmplhi! lo submit names that would t nibarrass prominent gentlemen who hing arouinl the cnpltol, percliunce Interested In legist illon nnd perchance directing nnd guiding legis lation. About this time It wns noticed that certain senators who are genei lllv tepnted to be on the salary roll ot certain rorpoi ntlons.w ere vt ry nervous. They commeiict d to bounce around the senate pit In a lively fashion. The senator frpm New Hamp shire continued to carom round the cnpl tol bv congratulating the) corporations of the country on their success before the confe-rees, Hvldently the corpor it Ions had given the matter close attention The claim hail been made when the bill was being dis cussed that coi iterations would be given nn nd.'untnge lu the Income tnx mutter, but owing to pressure on the confluence committee nt n late hour of t ougrevs, the corporations had been able to .eriire all possible advantage. As fat as coipoi.itlon employes were concerned the government deputy collectors would have to hunt around ninl do the best they could to llnd them nnd all coiporatlons would be able to continue to have secret emplovts In and around the capltol and the said implovcs could continue lo defent the operation of the 1 ivv. Most certnlnly, the senator con cluded, the coiporatlons of the country had found a very warm friend 111 the conlei ence committee- headed by the m n ttor fimii Missouri. The speech bristled with sqreasm and withal was a statement of fa ts known to those familiar with the work on the con fetrees for this change. All this time Sen ator Vest had hoarded color In his face with great rapidity. He bounced to his feet and wlldlv announced thnt corpora tions had not been In the conference room and made it plain that he winltd no In timations about corporations pitying hi his back )ard The Incident was regarded as n continua tion of .Senator Chandler's heartless stabs nt the senator from Mlssoiul BRADSTREET'S TRADE REVIEW.
