LONDON , May 14. fNow York Her
ald Cable-Special to the BKI : . ] In consid
ering the present position of affairs one ele
ment of a personal nature concerning mem-4
bcrs cannot bo omitted. It Is the air of gen
eral weariness and fatigue over the entno
house owing to the Incessant strain placed
upon all sections and parties since the open
ing of the session. Twice this week mem
bers bavegono homo by daylight after sitting
from twelve to fourteen hours. Thu result is
that everything Is jaded In mind and body.
In ordinary sessions members get occasional
nights olT without difficulty , but this > ear
calls are Issued dally detailing constant at
tendance even during the dinner hour no
rest , no holidays for anybody. The Irish
members generally have no other
business requiring attention and thus are
able to devote their whole time to pnrlln
inentary work. But a largo proportion of
the house consists of mercantile men or
lawyers , who are llttlo fitted for their dally
d'Ules by sitting up till U or S every morning.
The consequences begin to bo been In the In
creasing difficulty of Ihe whips on both
sides to hav Ing men down to the house. The
Uladstonlans attend In smaller numbers
every week and the liberal-unionists are also
dropping off. The ministerialists manage to
keep a majority , Thursday night they sunk
twenty-two in ono division , the lowest } et
recorded this session. No such unremitting
worK was over exacted from parliament be
fore over so long n period , with no prospect
of relief , for as fast as the amendments to
the crimes bill are wiped off at ono olid
another scries are tacked on at the other.
TIIK ONLY sunn : IIKURF.
It Is therefore difficult for any man to see
when or how the bill can bo carried unless
by a resort to contrivances not usual In
English 'legislation. The cloluro does not
answer the expectations of Its chief pro
moters. Tim only way of evadlne It Is by
multiplying the amendorente , each requir
ing , In common decency , reasonable time
for discussion. Unless recourse can bo had
loan expedient sometimes adopted In con
gress naming a given day for reporting the
bill and demanding Its third reading all
summer must pass without materially ad
vancing It. A proposition to this effect , It
Is said , lias been under consideration by the
government , but nothing has yet been posi
tively decided to any exceptional coup.
There will bo a strenuous opposition , led bj
Gladstone , who Is keeping watch over the
general tactics of the opposition.
TIIK OOVEBNHHNT HANKS UVIWOKHN.
It cannot , however , bo denied that
the ministerial majority remains un
broken , Bright goliu Into the lobby
with them early every night. There
are no signs ot a split among the
liberal unionists In any luiaiter. Thu bil
will undoubtedly be passed. The only ques
tion U when and by what means.
wonic OF TIIK iittsuir.Minni. : .
"Tho mat'i brunt of the opposition thus far
lias fallen on Sim llealy , who sits hour after
hour , undaunted by continual defeats , every
ready with a fresh crop of amendments.and
objections , making twenty or thirty speeches
every night , as If It all woio
child's play. The other Irish leaders
are In the back ground during the discussion
calling chiefly for subtlllty. 1'arnoll has no

Meanwhile the public outside regards with
impatience , tlioso prgtracted piuccedings ,
nnd another session Is slipping and no legis
lation auYctlng the Intuiusts ot the general
community Is even attempted. This cannot
but cause great disappointment , and must
end ultimately to the Injury of the conserva
tive party , although the ministers are power
less , under the present cltcumstauccs , to help
themselves. The country has been promised 1
ceitaln definite things. It It docs not get t
them there will bo bitter complaints.
Still , the belief that lieland Is
In a dangerous state leads the people
ple generally to acquiesce In the suspen
sion of ordinary legislative business and
prevents , according to my belief , any
substantial growth of Gladstone's btrength.
From my own experience In various parts of
the country 1 judge that the determination :
not to consent to anything losembllng Ulad-
btonc's scheme Increases rather than declines.
Tids , 1 am aware.Is not Gladstone's own
view , but last year he fully believed the coun
try ready to support him. The bulk of thu
worklngmcn take the stand on the main-
talncnce of the union and will not
budge nn Inch from that. This
determination must bo recogulml or
any future scheme for giving lieland
homo rule will Inevitably bo shipwrecked.
Kven In Scotland , good authorities declare
that the unionist feeling Is making great
headway. Chamberlain's speeches pro
duced considerable eltect nnd ho has returned
with renewed confidence In his cause. Kv
crjbodjftdmlU his reception was far more
friendly than was anticipated In the very
6ttvt and center of GUdstonlanlsm. If Scot
land Is wetkonloB ID Its attachment for ita
old Idol , It will be ominous of that section of
the llbeaalsvvho cast their fortunes with htm
A MATTKIt OF U.STKIITAINTY.
All this matter Is of some uncertainty till
he next election , which cannot bo brought
bout for some time. The unionists will not
onsent to plunge the country In the excite-
nent and expense of another dissolution. I
lo not H'O how the government can be beaten
n any material question. Churchill , though
opH | > sed on the retrenchment principle , has
'oidlally supported It when threatened by
ho opposition , will doubtless go on lighting
i stout battle for economy and exposing
nnnv abuses In tl.n public service , but as
sisting the government in Its Irish policy.
"IU resolve to bring about a pure and better
administration of public funds obtains tlio
cordial approval of the country and In
creases the ranks of his supporters.
1 < ANI\N ) I'AHI V or llEKOKVt.
"When the ministerial estimates for the
fear come under discussion you will hear
many things surprising you. Jobbery nnd
corruption nre in greater danger now than
ever before nnd the only man wo c\n look tote
to cleanse the Augean stable Is Churchill.
If any reasonablu solution of the Irish
problem Is only possible the country would
'Kill It with delight. Wu might then
nnprorch the pressing questions now
thrust aside. We should all feel llko men
emerging from some horrible nightmare
whenever that tlmo arrives. Kandolph
Churchill will lead the party of reform , and
the day of governing this country by family
rlL-nt , private Interests and official jobbery
will have passed away. You will see the
first steps toward blinking about this result
even before the present session Is out.

cni.i.v , May 14.-rNew Yoik Herald Cable
Special to the IKi.J : Now York would
hnve thought Itself In a state of seine If for a
single day troops passed through the city as
troops have been passing for the past week-
Infantry , cavalry and artillery , marching to
nnd fro so that from early morning to 3 or 4
o'clock In the nf let noon the tramp of in
fantry nnd the rumble ot nrtlllory Is pretty
constantly In one's ears. On busy Frlederlck
strasso are found companies of Infantry fol
lowing each other so quickly that the music
of the military bands got sadly mixed up.
All this comes only from tlio spring ma
noeuvres which bring to Berlin troops from
all over the military district centering here.
TIIF. KAISKU'8 MILITARY 11HEAKKAST.
Nearly every day ot the week the young
emperor spent the moining reviewing the
troops , either heio or In Potsdam. Last
week ho began the service by breakfasting
at Potsdam with the officers of his regiment
as guests with true German sympathy. A
big cake , covered with ninety small lighted
candles , was brought on after breakfast to
commemorate the ago of the emperor ,
who personally commands this regi
ment. Tills pleased the emperor so
that ho said the officers must also
have some remembrance or the day , so
ho himself cut the cake and gave each officer ,
with his on hand , a piece of the cake nnd a
lighted candlo. Then , that all might smoke ,
the kaiser lighted a cigarette ami a smoking
parliament began Its session.
Some what later the llttlo five-year-old
future emperor , the son of the crown prince's
eon , In the palace opposite , also had his
birthday cake with flnn candles upon it and
got with it his first suit of .unlfoun , thus
boating his great grandfather by ono year in
begiuing his army service.
AT THE I'AllADK OltOUNDS.
AH through the week crowds regularly
waited to cheer the emperor as ho passed on
his way to the parade ground. Wednesday ,
In spite of tlio raw day , his simple low horse
carriage passed ns usual , followed by several
gorgeous court four-ln-hand equipages.
Once on the parade giound , the emperor
cries "Good morning" to the retrl-
ments , which answer with n co
lossal "Good morning , your mn-
jesty. " Then , by skiliul driving , the em
peror keeps a position to sco thu whole K-
viuw to the best advantage. The infantry
march and countermarch , but always toward
thu emperor. There are skirmishes , storm
ing of earth works , cavalry charges and prac
tice with new repeating rifles , all of which
the emperor eagerly watched from his posi
tion close to the line , noting the defects and
watching the terribly rapid liio of the new
repeaters with a never tiring eye.
AN AMUSING INCIDENT.
Thwsdny the emperor again went to Pots
dam. On his way to the depot and old mar
ket woman created a good deal of amuse
ment by forcing a horse car , In which she
was , to stop until the engineer passed. She
was sunburnt , muscular , and patriotic. Hid
ing on the front platform with her baskets ,
she heard the cheers announce the Emperor's
approach. The driver of the car was too busy
to be patriotic. Ho wished to
drive on , but with a "Eh , wa wcnn ,
'
un'ser kalsci commct wlrd , commet wlrd ,
nlcht jafahren , " the old frau laid violent
hands on the driver and summarily stopped
the car. She had a picture of the kaiser at
home , she explained , and no sti ct car
should prevent her Basing her ka'.onr ngaln ,
So thu horse car passengers saw the em
peror pass and got a salute from him , nfter
which a stiong-armcd patriot set the driver
up in his place again and urged thu horses
forward to make up lost tlmo.

A pleasant feature of all this military re
view ing Is that , in spite of the severe and
long-continued exercise Involved , the em
peror is so strong as to bo able afterwards to
lunch with his officers , receive visitors , or
make calls the s-amo ntturnuon. Yciy touch
ing Is the simple revcience shown every
where forthoompeior. A good example of
this fueling is shown In a letter bezlnnlng :
"Dear Mr. Kmperor , " which the mall re
cently brought to the place. A child com
plained that the father of an old soldier
lamed in the Austrian war was now helpless ,
so that he , with four sisters ami brothers ,
often wont hungry , so the appeal made to
the emperor was the most natural course for
the child's mind , nnd tlio emperor Is now
having the matter Investigated ,
OONi : INTO SUMMKlt ( JIFAIITEIIS.
Spring weather , though not too warm yet ,
has already had Its eltect , and noted people
have begun to go into summer residences.
The Kaiser still stays here , but later goes to
Ems. Gnstlun Is said this year to be forbid
den by his physicians. Tim crown prince Is
already In his iiiunl summer quarters at Huts-
dam , and Count Yon Moltke went Tuesday
to his Koban estate. Count lllsmark goes to
Ireland to see Lord Lonponderry.
Prince Bismarck also soon loaves Berlin for
his estates. The latter , by thu way , has boon
lately renewing youth by a horseback gallop
through Thlergarton , with the result of fresh ,
healthy looks , which delight every ono seeing
him. U seems to show a certain lack of en
terprise on the put of the French pipers
thatthejo rides have not been duly tele
graphed as a preparation for a raid on
Paris.
OOIIY NUWSPAPKn STOllIKS.
Sacoudly , the spring weather lias brought
an Increase of heated comments by the Ger
man papers on their French rivals. Almost
every Issue ( bit week ( Uo JJerltu papers con-
talncd some story of French or Uusslan at
tack on Germans ; from Paris Is clvon a
thrilling account of Germans attacked on
the streets : from Belport coino stories of
Germans arrested as spies , or attacked by
crowds of angry Frenchmen ; Irom the
Moscow Oarctto is clipped a funny
article describing battalions of carrier
pigeons and regiments of dogs which
Germany Is training for a march
on Paris. Kvon , according to this comic
Muscovite , Germany proposes to establish a
regular canine school that every do. : In Ger
many may bo trained to snarl for the father
land. All of which serves to slowly Irritate
Germans , more especially these who notice
the continual cry of the Prussians , which Is
used In Fiance as a term of reproach Instead
of the desired names of the German. As yet
these articles lead to no threats from German
papers , though ono Influential paper suggests ,
with a malicious chuckle , that Franco had
better stop squinting toward Alsace-Lorraine
and watch Its own border very closely.
As a natuial result of the hrltatlnn against
Franco comes the news of n more stronger
enforcement of the laws In Uclchsland , the
civ 11 officers being replaced by those of tried
fidelity. Persons who sneak French , or edu
cate their children In Fiance , manufacturers
or ilch laud owners with houses In pans , all
aru under suspicion and subject to Instant
expulsion , It caught In any suspicious act.
Quito a sensation was created momentarily
by a statement in the Alsace journal that sev
eral great factories owned by French
men have their work people trained and al
lotted into companies so ns to go over bodily
to the Invading French army. Although
probably a lie , the story scorns to show still
some of the heated fuellngalong the frontier.
Their Itclntlons Ilcc-onilng Friendly.
BKHUN , May 14. Official advices from
St. Petersburg to-day declare that there Is a
marked improvement In Uusslan rotations
with Germany , and that the entente cordiale
with Piince Bismarck , has renewed despite
the polemic over the Austro-Kusslan tienty
regarding the occupation of Bosnia. This
statomentconltlcts with the- fooling in Bui-
lin official circles , and Is Interpreted as In
dicating n dread of further revelations of
new intrlgtii ) on the part of Kusla , who , It
Is alleged , Is trying to Induce Austria to
abandon n German alliance. The origin ot
the recent disclosure Is now known to be the
discovery by Prince Blsmuck that Itussla
was making approaches tor another soeiet
treaty with Austria , with thu object of de
taching her from Germany. The disclosmes
hnvo ellected Its puipose of frustrating the
liussinn game nnd obliging the Austriun
government to summailly refuse to consider
any ariangcmcut not Unown to Germany.
LONDON'S GALA DAY.
The Queen Enters the City With Tony
and I'liscnnt.
LONDON , May 14. The city is nblaze with
excitement this afternoon , the occasion being
the v sit ot the queen for the purpose of

The route selected tor the royal progress ex

at 4 o'clock. She will bo accompanied
by Prince Christian and Prlnco Henry
of Battenberg and his wife and Princess
Beatrice. She will bo mot by a civic escort ,
and with her escort will pioceed In car-
ilagcs , escorted by a troop of cavalry. Thu
line of the procession will bo guarded by
10,000 volunteers and 5,000 tegular troops ,
comprising artillery , infantry and cavalry ,
all selected largely with a view to brilliancy
and contrast , their different uniforms as ad
ditions to the pageant , nnd 10,000 policemen.
At llolborn the loid mayor and civic officials
will await the queen's advent In the old city ,
and after saluting her and formaly welcoming
ing her to London , will proceed with her to
the People's palace. Theiu the Prince of
Wales , Marquis of Lome and Duke of Cam
bridge will receive her majesty. The queen ,
in ner progress to the palace , will proceed
throughout the section of London known ns
the city for the first time In many yenis.
nnd her visit has aroused great
excitement. The lord mayor and municipal
officers of the city of London wont In car
riages trom the Mansion house to thu clty'.s
boundary llne-Holborn. They alighted and
awaited the queen , who was in an open car
riage. At the queen's appioacli the lord
mayor received a pearl sword from a sword-
bearer. His worship lowered the point , con-
uiatiilated her majesty on coming to tno
most loyal city anil piesentcd the sword to
the queen , bnu took It anil returned It. The
lord mayor and letineii then placed them
selves immediately in advance of the quecn'b
carriage nnd escorted her ncross the citv to
the eastern boundnry-Aldgate. There they
bade her farewell for a brief time and re
paired to the Mansion house to wait her
majesty's return. The queen proceeded
to the People's palace and ascended the

ing the national anthem. The queen thun
received the gold key. Mine. Albanl aang
"Homo , Sweet Home. " nnd the Prince of
Wnles declared the People's palace open.
The announcement wns greeted with a great
flourish ot trumpets , followed by the nrand
choir rendering "Old Hunilied. " Sub
sequently the queen laid the fust stone of
the foundation , with the technical
spools attached , of the Peoplu's palace.
At the conclusion of the ceremonies thu royal
procession started on Its return. By com
mand ot the queen , the loiuest routu back
was taken , the procession moving oft Into
Burdett road , irolng thence along Commer
cial load to Oldgale. This deviation was
oideru'l to please the clti/ens , who requested
it. Arriving again nt tlie city limits , the
loyalcaitlago was met by the lord major
civ ic officers , and escorted to the .Mansion
house , which the queen cntmcd In state tor

boldly assert that ho was promised Patker's

was also piomlsud Hruce's place. All these
[ icoplo are bitter on McSlmne. They say ho
A as the evil genius : that ho came hero os-
: oii ! > lbly for Blerbower's scilp , and Insisted
hat Kuclkl Martin , of Omaha , should have
Ills place. Hut when Attorney-General ( ! ar-
and said that not nnothur federal olllco-
lolder from Omaha , and when the president
said the same tiling and nsked McSluno to
lame some democrat outside of Omaha , that
McSlmne felt soie , and finally glow Into a

and told the president hu felt llko the urchin
who said if ho could not have his picture
aKcn he wanted to ha\c his tooth pulled ; ho
must have some diversion , and ho could not
go back to Omaha with his tall between his

'uied him three postolllccs. McShanu said

that Nebraska was so overwhelmingly ropub-

to name the man. The piesldent replied he
mubt appoint Markloy theie. Ho intended
him for 1'aiker's place , but hu had been
euchred nut ot tliAt , unu hu was fairly en
titled to it. But McShsno said he thought It
was understood he wai to name the man ,
and It was 'generally agreed among
his friends that as lirtico was from
Knox county the newsman should bo Mono-
steel , from that county , tlie late democratic
senator from that district , nnd who had lost
much money hi Kilning on toot n democratic
paper. Hut tliapre.sldentshookhis head and
said he icqtiired other and tliltuient reasons
In appointing a man In the service , holding
that a nubile otllce was a public trust. Then
McShano shook his he.id and quietly said :
"Tlio devil 1 on do I" and paused , and the
piesldent paused. Finally the president
s-ald : " 1 will compromise the matter. Mr.
Wclna hasboon strongly recommended. Hu
Is a Bohemian , nnd thuie are many Ho-
hcminns In Nebraska , although they gen-
eially are republicans. It will bo a good
point politically. " "es" said McShano.
giimly , "a public office lea public tuistl' "
This trust rankled thu piesldent , and he said ,
sternly. If McSlmno would bo satisfied with
Welna hu would appoint him. McShano
assented , savin : ho nui-it scorn to have some
scalps at his belt when hu rctoi tied lo Omaha ;
that the charter election would bo held in a
few days , and he must hasten to be theiu.
Thu president said :
"Your mnvor Is now democratic. "
"Yes. said McSlmne , "and tlie next ono
will be. My four thousiud majority will
secure that. "
Thou thu President smiling , replied :
' It vou elect a democratic mayor theio
shall lie a change in tlio Marshall nt once. "
McShano smiled nil over nnd uttered
'good ' a public office Is n public trust , " and
linn led toOmnhatoelcctademocraiicmayor.
But a tew davs tlieretiftor there was a
eloom In the White House. When the wires
brought the Intelligence that n lepubllcan
mavor had been elected by nearly a thousand
majority. Ben Wilson and some trlonds of
Mark ley called on Dan Lament , and ho told
them thu above story ot McShane's visit to
thu President , and said he aiwavs thought ,
and Dr. Miller had often told him , that while
McShanu was honest , ho find no decision or
judgment as a loader ; that there was no ex
cuse In Omaha going republican unless Mc-
Shano's stupldidity except Uoyd , teeling
that if It went Democratic It would strength-
oil McShane , nnd Bolrbower would hnve to
go. Then they swore all around , took a
drink , und vowed the President was right ;
that there was no ptrt ot America west of
Illinois that a democratic President was

pioved enough toonablo him to came hero.
After his arrival ho continued to grow
woise. His d'bo iso was dropsy. Ho sultoied
Intensely last night , but In tbe early morn
ing ho apparently became Insensible to piin.
Ho was entliely unconscious this morning
and the only evidence of life was his slow
resplintion. It Is understood to bo the du

burled In Ohio , where ho was born. Thu
funeral arrangements have not boon made
Justice Woods vviHborti In Newark. O. ,

chance that President Cleveland will have to

Ivo nnuouncemunt today that the Chicago &
Northwestern and Chicago , St. Paul , Minne

commence the building of a bridge across the
Missouri river at onco. Preparations had al
ready been made for voting 8300,000 tax by the
city to assist nn eastern corporation In erect-
ng the bridge , but the present arrangement Is
eminently more satisfactory all around. As
a result the day has been a must exciting and
active one In real estate and business circles.
Much property has changed hands and It Is
confidently believed that the greatest boom
it the noitliwest will bagln next week. The
railway companies now agieo to accept the
charter of the Sioux City Bridge company ,
refund nil money expended in preliminary
suiveys , adopt tlio line and profiles of the
bridge company and use the brldgo com-
) > an > 's engineer , Mr. Morrison , in the con

the Sioux City Bridge company ; that
the biidgo shall bo open to the
use of all companies upon reasonable
compensation : that thu work shall
begin as soon as the secretary of war shall
approve the plan and as soon as the old
bridge company can turn over the stock and
franchise , which they agree on their part to
ilo. It is now certain that the union depot
will bo at the terminus of the bridge on this

und confident feeling hero to-day than has

nothing that can bo construed Into violent

withstanding the enthusiasm nron c < ! , that
little oxcusoieiiuilus tor Toronto to create a
disturbance.
Perhaps thu exact situation
may best bo ns-
citaincd Irom O'lirlen himself , who .spoke
to nil associated press reporter this afternoon
as follows : "Up to the picicnt the lesult has
more than answered my most .sanguine ex
pectations. From end to end of this province
of Quebec , although , of course , 1 have en
countered n peed many opponents , J have
not experienced the slightest marie of dis
courtesy , not to say violence. 1 have met
some who doubted the advisability of our
visit , but 1 havn not met a single one who.
liaving heard us , was not comlneed that we
Had the amplest nnd most justllicatlon for
the course wo have taken. 1 have been
slmi'ly ' ama/cd at the extent to which the
piojudlco so unscrupulously aroused against
us has been dissipated In the coursn of tht
-iriotest intcicourse with the people. The
fact Is , of course , duo not to ourselves , but to
the absolutely unanswerable strength of our
Indictment. This result Is , I think , thor-
ouglily secured that the Canadian people re-
eognUe that a case has been made which
must be answered. Not a single one of
Nurd Lnnsdowno's champions In the press
linve attempted to tackle the facts ot I he con
troversy , although Lord Lansdowne , man *
weeks UKO. through his aide-do camp , sup
plied them with his version of thu transac
tions. Ills friends are icduccd to two pleas ,
neither of which will bear the light of robust
nubile criticism for a moment. The tact la
that as governor general Lord Lnnsdowne 18
sublimated abo\o all criticism from peopla
whom ho rules nnd who pay him. This Is a
doctrine so antipathetic to Uritish constitu
tional law that 1 can scarcely Imagine how
any person Instructed In the rudiments ot
Knglihh constitutional history can for a mo
ment propound It. Lansdowne's other plea
Is a still more washy one , namely , that his
mouth Is closed against defense. His own
action and that of his agent utterly confute
It. He was himself first to resort to newspaper
controversy on the subject before 1 had an
opportunity , and first to make an exparto
and dUngonlous statement of his sldu of the
case before 1 had any opportunity of an
swering him.

"There Is nothing In the law of Canada to
prevent me cm Tying out my intention , nnd
while 1 should most deeply regret that out
visit should be the occasion ot the smallest
Interruption of domestic tranoulllty In Can
ada , I teel coercion , as a matter of llfo and

unmistakable character. Its comments on
our Canadian visit are of the same character
as the Incitements of j.ord Randolph

had read the proclamation calling the meet >
Ing , the bishop of Algoma moved the liist
resolution as follows :
Timt this meeting reprobates the action ot
William O'llilcn visiting this city for tha
purpose ot exciting n hostile feeling ngalnat
his excellency , the governor-general , on no *
count ot thu dlllerence between tils excel *
loncv and his tenants In Ireland , ana ex
presses Its entire nnd unabated confidence
In the high character of bis excellency , tbe
Marquis of Landsdnwne , and in his fitness
to represent her majesty in Canada- "
His lordscip in moving the resolution pro
tested against the great wrong , unblushing
indecency nnd audacious Importlnanco
about to bo perpetrated by O'Hrion coming
to Toiouto. Ho said this fair dominion was
not the homo of rebels. O'Brlon's coming
was founded on falsehood and hypocrisy.
11. K. Clarke , M. 1 * . II. , seconded thu icso-
lutlon , which was supported by the bishop of
Toronto and carried amid tremendous cheer
ing and waving of hats. Only about twenty
hands vvcro held up ngnlnst the resolution.
1'iot. Goldvvln .Smith moved the second resolution
elution as follows :
"Tlmt this second meeting looks with per.
feet confidence to the parliament of the
United Kingdom torn wise and just settle
ment of all questions In relation to Ireland. "
Ho said that while willing to give all the
benefits to Irish citl/ens , he wanted to be
done with this trickling to the Irish vote.
Speaking of O'Hrion , he said they did not
want have his excellency attacked by men
steeped In venom and with lipscnvomed
with untruth.
Itev. Dr. I'otts and Itev. ( } . M. Mllllgan
supported the resolution , which was can led
amidst tremendous checiing , only one or
two hands being field up against It.
