protection for Irish industries?" They
offered him more in 1885 than Mr.
Gladstone had offered since, and when
Mr. .Parnell informed tbem of the state
of is mind they went about the country
making speeches which were intended
to be precursors and heralds of a
measure of Home Rule for Ireland. If
the Tories had obtained a working ma
jority in the election of 18S5 they would
have passed Home Rule. They were
entitled to expect it—they had given
their word, and they could ask no more.
That being so they had no cause to
complain that Manchester in 1885 re
turned five Conservatives. But the
general election did not give the Tories
a working majority they found that
the vote of the Irish party was not
strong enough to keep them in power,
so instead of giving them Home "Rule
they began to call them Hottentots, and
instead of bidding good by to coercion,
which before the election they had been
yigorously denouncing, they attempted
to suppress the .National League. Last
year Mr. Gladstone adopted and declared
a poliey of Home Rale for Ireland. Did
Manchester reject it? (No.) Instead of
one Liberal they returned three (cheers),
and three better, sounder or more
honorable Liberals than Mr. Jacob
Bright (cheers), Sir Henry Roscoe and
Mr. Schwann (cheers) were not to be
found inside or outside the House of
Commons. He was certain that when
next Manchester was called upon the
electors would return six Liberals to
the House of Commons. They knew
Mr. Balfour rather better now than they
did a year ago—they knew him now as
the sultan of Dublin Castle. He be
lieved that at the next election they
would oblige that gentleman to play
the part of Jonah—they would throw
him over to save the ship of state. The
last resort of the choice spirits of the
Tory party in the House of Commons
was to make a set upon some Irish mem
ber—to fasten deliberately upon some
man who was known to be more quick
tempered than others, or upon some
man whose nerves were unstrung by
protracted public labors, and to endea
vor by intrusion, irritation and insult to
excite and j:oad that man into some
word of anger which might draw down
upon him the censure of the chair, and
prejudice the English mind against the
Irish members. From what he knew
of Englishmen, he was convinced that
they had greater regard for a man who
allowed bis natural temper a little fair
play than the man who would be dull or
cold enough to be silent as a block under
the pressure of insult a.xl provocation.
Under the coercion act, cities had been
proclaimed where three weeks ago white
amoves were given ty her majesty's
judges (shame), and counties had been
proclaimed for offences which had not
been committed in those counties for
months and years. After the coercion
came the remedy, which ought to have
preceded it, but the cure was almost
worse than the disease. The first point
was eviction-made-easy, and another
point was that the Irish tenant was to
be saved from ruin by making him a
bankrupt. That idea had now been
abandoned. They were to have rents
reduced at last, und the government
were doing now with very bad grace
what they ought to have done at the be
ginning of the year. The Irish had
faith in the English people and in Mr.
Gladstone, and looked forward in a
calm and hopeful spirit to the day when
the English and Irish people would be
united, not. by a union which had no
validity except on parchment, not by a
union 'maintained by 30,000 bayonets,
but by a union rendered sacred by the
united intelligence of honest men, which
no power on earth could break, and
which would constitute the impregnable
rampart of liberty and free affection.
Mr. Sexton was entertained at a banquet
at the Grand Hotel, subsequently. Mr.
Eairchild, Grand Com-r
O'Neill presided. In response
to the toast of the Irish Parliamentary
Party, Mr. Sexton said the chairman
had referred to the fact that the citizens
of Dublin honored him with nomina
tion to the civic chair next year. He
had accepted the honor in. the hope that
one or other of two events might bap
pen—the lioDe that it might be his duty
as chief magistrate to take part in the
opening of the "Old House at Home."
(Cheers.) That might perhaps be too
sanguiue a hope. ("So.") At any
rate, if it were not next year it might
be some year soon. The other hope was
that, although the old House might
still be closed the Mansion House would
be open, and it would not be his fault if
he had not the honor of welcoming into
it the'great statesman who was giving
the services of his old age and the
primest fruit of his intellect to the cause
of justice to Ireland. He could assure
them that the day Mr. Giadslone set
his foot on Irish soil he would receive1
a welcome not less fervent, hearty and
widespread than any living man had
received. Some of those mean and
carping critics who were unable to
understand the natural nobility even of
the Irish peasant would like people to
believe that the Irish people would
break faith with England. He would
like to remind those who had any sueh
fear, of the warmth of the reception
given to the Earl of Aberdeen. It was
by things like that that he asked them
to judge whether if the Irish people re
ceived fair play they were not likely to
give good faith in return. He was glad
be able to say that Mr. Parnell, oyer
whose state of health some crocodile
tears had been shed, had again attained
the full vigor of his prowess. The party
was in high heart, the leader was^tit for
his work, the prospect
the end was certain. The_ chairman

Which way do the seeds point in an apple? Don't look guess first,
and then look. How do the English people get. aloner without sweet
apples? They have no Golden Sweets, no German Roughs. The element
of sweetness seems to be lacking in their climate. Even our sugar
maple in that land yields no sweet. One writer says that the apple
pleases every sense to which it can be addressed. The touch, the suiell,
the sight, the taste: and when it falls in the still October days, it pleases
the ear. It is a call to banquet, it is a signal that the feast is ready. An
other bauquet is spread for you, good friend. At the IT it addresses
itself to your good taste, also. Peed the inner man by all means, but
