IRISH HOOLIGANS. Disgraceful Uproar in Parliament. Member Threatens Balfour and is Suspended. The rti-opiiiinj (If Parliament has been marked by one of those scenes of disorder which,_ en-unatin^ as they invariably elo. from the Irish members, indicate more and more every day the impossibility of Home Rule from either a. Conservative or a, Liberal 2\im- istry. At the close of the dav's business, dur- ing which the Xationalists had manifested many disloyal and turbulent symptoms. Zvlr. Balfour moved "that the question be now put." The Speaker i"se to put the motion, when Mr. John O'Donnell (N., Mayo. who was a few clays ago sentenced to three month hard labour for intimidation in lie- land, and who has appealed against that sen- tence. rose to continue the debate. The Speaker attempted to put the Closure motion, but the Nationalists shouted loudly for "O'DomellX The latter stood up in bus seat gesticulating wilily, but hi the remark- able uproar which was caused by the shouts of the Nationalists for their colleagues to be heard and the commotion that arose through numbers hurrying m from all parts of the House it was impossible to hear a single sen- tence fivm the lion, member. At length the Speaker resumed his seat, obviously waiting for the din to subside, whereupon the Nationalists, thinking that Mr. O'DonneSi had succeeded in procuring a. hearing, .shouted in triumph. But no sooner was it possible to h.'a1' at all clearly than the speaker and said: "The lion, member is not m order. Several Nationalists In wh¡t The Speaker In addressing the House. Nationalists shouted wily- and again urged Mr. O'Donnell to persist in addressing the Assembly. Mr. O'Donnell moved up to a position above the Opposition gangway, accompanied by Mr. W. Redmond and one or two .)f his clleagues. From that position he commenced to shout at the top of his voice, but owing to the confusion that still continued it was impassible to gather the drift of his remarks. The Speaker wa.s meanwhile waiting for an opportunity to be heard. Mr. O'Donneii, apparently acting on a suggestion from one of his colle.gue-E, who had followed him up the HOUBe, suddenly, to the amazement of the now crowded and unduly excited assem- bly. darted across the floor of the House, and, standing within a few feet of Mr. Balfour, who sat on the Government- Bencher?, com- menced to address the right hn. geiitlemaj) in a violent and menacing manner, amid the in- creasing shouts of his colleagues. The excitement became intense. Air. G'Donnell's gesture increased in violence. He waved his hands within a ltw inches of the Prime Minister's nose. He thumped the despatch-box which lies on the table of the House, and every moment- the danger of his actually striking Mr. Balfour became more and more imminent. The right lion, gentle- man during this Clne sat looking at. Mr. O'Donnell with an imperturbable smile on his face. but the other members of the Gov- ernment, fearing that violence would be offer- ed to their chief, crowded round him. with exident irrns of a determination to protect him. After gesticulating and shouting for several minutes the hon. member backed to his seat, all the while facing the Cabinet, and shouting imprecation-?. The House became -o crowded and confused during this unprecedented scene, and the exultant shouts of the Nationalist members ard the counter cries of "Order, order," from other pints of the House created such a dm, that the Deputy Sergeant-at-Arms could not hear 1 he orders given by the Speaker. At length tnis official left his chair near the door and pushed his way up tne floor of the House r«> the Speaker. Mr. Balfour rose in Lis putee and moved "that Mr. John O Donnell be suspended from tlie .service of the House.
