IniSIl NATIONALISTS AND IlRITISIl
It Is probably a mistake to assume, ns
has been assumed by many onlookers,
that nn Irreparable breach has been
opened between the British Liberal and
the Irish Nationalist members of Par
liament by the unqualified and unan
imous refusal of tho Nationalist conven
tion held at Dublin, to .accept tho Hlr
rell bill. Intended to transfer many nd
minlstratlvc functions, now vested In
boards appointed by the Viceroy of
Ireland, to a central council, partly ap
pointed, but mainly elected, by thoe
Irishmen who possess the parllamentary
fr.mchlso. There is no doubt that the
bl'l should be constructed as an nnnounce
fiient that It will tolerate no sort of
cooperation between Irish Nationalists
and the Ttosebery wins of the Liberal
arty, which In tho present cabinet Is
represented by the Chancellor of the
1 xchequor, tho Minister for Foreign
Affairs, and the Minister of War. Vndcr
the clrcumstnnces, If Premier Ranner
nian's mnjorlty were less overwhelming
than It Is. ho would have to dismiss
Sir Edward Grey, Mr. Asqulth, and Mr.
Ualdane, or loso tho support of Mr.
John B. Redmond and his eighty follow
ers. No such alternative confronts tho
Minister ta-day, but at the next general
election, -which, In Mr. Banncrman's
rplnion. will take place In 19H or soon
thereafter, Sir IT. J. Campbell-Banner-man
and the o(ther Liberals who are
sincere converts to home rule, and who
composQ tho majority of the present
Minister to-day, but at the next general
crs of Lord Itosebery to flock by them
selves, for the latter cannot possibly con
trol so large a fraction of the electorate
r.s Is represented by the Irish vote In
British constituencies. Ird Kosebery,
filr Edward Grey, Mr, Ualdane, and Mr.
Aso.ulth really belong with tho X'nlonlsts
upon every question that of free trado
In breadstuffs. Meanwhile, Irish National
ists will be expected to distinguish tho
sheep from tho goats by supporting at
1 y elections those Liberal candidates who
nre kneran to bo stanch hnme-rulers, nnd,
on the other hand, helping to defeat
those of the Itosebery stripe. That would
tie the only fair deduction by Irishmen
fitting nt Westminister, or voting In
Great Brltlnn, from the action of the
J"uMln Nationalist convention. They
ought not to hold Premier Banncrmnn
a spohslnln for the lilrroll bill, which
notoriously did not conform to his per
sonal wishes, but Mmply represented tho
utmost which tho Itosebery would con

St. Albans, June 13. A cnim and race.
fill life which had been lived for nearly
a century was onded this morning, when
death claimed William Henry Bronson '4t
the homo of his son, Edwin Bronson. Mr,
Bronson was born In tho town of North
Hero February 13. 1S10. nnd was therefore
In his 9Sth year, making him one of the
oldest perons In the State. He passed
away peacefully at ten o'clock, his going
being a painless transition, the machinery
that had energized him for nearly five
generations simply reaklng down under
the weight of years. For some months ho
had been gradually falling nnd seemed
perfectly nwaie that the time of his dis
solution wns near. Vet ho even appeared
to welcome the end, his remarkablo strong
faith In God and his anticipation of re
union with loved ones gono on before
gave him spiritual strength for rlie ordeal.
At the time of his birth James Madison
was president of the United States, nnd
Jonas Galusha wns governor of Vermont.
Mr. Bronson llve'd In his native town of
North Hero until he was 17 years old, nnd
came to St. Albans, February 4, 183. He
learned tho trado of a tanner working with
Steven Lawrence four years. For a tlmo
ho wns captain of an artillery company.
His father was n soldier In tho War of
1S12, nnd wns In the battle of Plnttsburgh.
Mr. Brownson was tho sou of Lyman
nnd Janet (Strong) Bronson, and the mem
bers of the family havo been noted for
longevity, none of hU four brothers and
three sisters dying under tho ago of M
years nnd one living to be 97 years 'old.
In 18S3 Mr. Bronson married Miss Harriet
Smith and five children were born to
them, Elbert, Sinford, George, Edwin,
and Sarah Jane, wife of Francis BriBhani.
Only ono child, Edwin, of St. Albans
town, Is living. Mrs. Bronson died In
May, 1S90. Thero are six grandchildren
nnd nlno great grandchildren.
In politics Mr. Bronson was a staunch
