POLITICAL ITEMS. A London correspondent writes^I hear that the political committee of the Reform Club have exercised the power which they possess under a special rule of electing t-vo candidates in each year who have shown their attachment to the Liberal cause by marked and obvious services to it. The two gentlemen elected members of the club under this rule are Mr Charles Cooper, editor of the Scotsman, and Mr Edward Lloyd, proprietor of Lloyd's News and the Daily Chronicle. At the meeting of Scotch members the Lord Advocate intimated that the Government pro- ppsed shortly to deal with the Scotch poor relief question, increasing the local rates by certain sums which are no v paid into the Treasury, and discontinuing altogether the grants that are now made. The meeting was thereupon adjourned. Most of the Scotch Members of the House were present at the meeting. MrGorat has undertaken to move a resolution condemnatory of the Government policy in the Transvaal on the first available opportunity. It is understood that in this he is supported not only by the Conservatives in the House, but by a con- siderable section of Liberals. A BiH to amend the Bankrupt Acts in Scotland has been introduced by Dr Cameron, Mr Orr Ewing, Mr James Campbell, and Mr Mackin- tosh, and is accompanied by a long memorandum giving lengthy reasons why the present laws should nudergo revision. The lioval Commissioners on Tonnage held a meeting on Tuesday, when there were present Mr C. M. Norwood, M.P., chairman Sir John Stokes, Sir E. J. lleed,M.P.,Mr H. C.Rothery.Mr Thomas Gray, Mr J. P. Corry, M.P., Mr Robert Capper, Mr John Glover, Mr Bernard \Vaymouth, and Mr J. Edward Wilkius. Evidence was giten by Mr G. A. Laws, shipowner, representing the Newcastle and Gateshead Incorporated Chamber of Commerce.
