But what really gave him his air of distinction wi "at his clothes nor hi, manner of wearing them; it wis the long blende morat&che tha.t he jou- stautlv twisted and untwisteu at the ends.

Of course, however, ho was not always thinking logically: that in itself would be illogical, for as yet die world was young to him, and he was young to the worid, and life wm not a serious effort. He certainly was not straining his faculties as he sauntered from "evening rabies to the oth cers' oiub-room in tho si-ader'a store on a bright day in May, not many years wo, To teii the truth, there was nothing espec-jai ir. his mind uatil he t'imed the corner or the bwhfing.

He. however, imm&di <-tely saw, with surprise, wherein this partioitlar squaw differed from tue others. From the silver ornament* about her neck :o the beaded mocassins, all was neatiit-ss and ffrace. She was untying a pony from the bone-rack in front of the store, and as he got closer he saw that the handfc. slipping1 the turns of th* lariat from die sstrrg-piece, were remark- ably small and shapely. without brase rings on the fingers. A few more paces and he saw that the profile of her face was aehoate in features, that the waa a clear olive, and that there was no pains on the cheeks. Then sh" turned her head, and he saw such eyes sw he never before had seen in a human head. They looked straight into his t.n.in--a.nd stayed there. He did not speak to ibbr-that was not eti- quette, especially before the back.- squatted near -he <oor«eps—nor did he halt; he- walked elowly by and entered the store, carrying with him die fai>ranauon of tho^e sou.fm eyes. lie bought a. pound of tobacco and several pack ages of cigarette papers, and with hia pur- chase sought Sanchez, the interpreter, in hia eamn below tha post.

THE MURDER OF MR. STOKES. PROTEST BY THE BRITISH! GOVSLRNMENT. The Press Association is officially in- formed that Yice-consui Arthur has lodged at Boma, on behalf of the British Govern- ment, an appeal against the finding of tbe court which acquitted ■ Major Loth aire of tbe- grave charge preferred against him in con- nection with the execution of Mr, Stokes. It is pointed out, however, that this action does not necessarily bind the British Govern- ment to prosecute an appeal, but the step was taken in order to secure a locus standi, and. if the Government decides, on consi- deration, that the appeal should be proceeded with, its right to go on will be incon- testable.

SPAIN AND UNITED STATES. REMONSTRANC ES FROM I MADRID. | 40,000 SPANISH TROOPS FOR! CUBA. I A Central News telegram from Madrid, dated Friday morning, s-aye ;-Notwi,th- ataiiding the semi-official remarks inspired by Ministers, there is a widespresid belief in political circleo that the Cabinet Council held yesterday, which was of au exceptional kind and had been hastily convoked, was chiefly occupied with recent developments of the situation in Cuba. The attitude of the United i Statee, which .s regarded here as one of scarcely veiled benevolence towards the in- surgents, likewise received serious considera- tion. Especial attention was given o the inaction of the United States auithoritjes, wliich eniblc^ successive filibustering expe- ditions to be organised on American terri- tory. and despatched to the island with im- punity.

NOTES FROM THE f METROPOLIS. I EF"m OLP. LONDON COKRKSPQiVBSNTS.J LONDON, Friday. A Thousand Amendments. There are now over a thousand notices of amendments to the Education Bill, and ti*; supply is not yet exhausted. The amend- ments to be pressed by the Church party, by the Roman Catholics, ami by the official Oupoaitk-a are jet to be handed in. The obvious intention of the Opposition is to compel the Government to ci..r.rure the Bill. They are ambitious of gaining such distinc- tions as did the Unionists when they protested so vigorously against the .forcing through of the Home Rule Bifel; but the circumstances are different. In those days the sides were nearly equal, the Government majority ranging from half a dozen to 30. Now the Opposition is only a fraction of the House, and the Government majority on tins Bill Ls from 250 to 300. London and the Lifeboat. As I have already stated, London is going I to celebrate its first Lifeboat Saturday to morrow. There are to be great demonstra- tions, processions, and so on in the streets, and collections will be taken by ap- pointed persons.

The thing has been taken up with avidity by the masses and classes, and on the Surrey side of the river the arrangements are reported to be of a most elaborate character.

"Exhibiting Indications. Whec a memOOr rises m bis place and says nothing we kno. that he "erhibite indica- tions." This is the new and humorous definition with winch Mr. J. VVT. Lowther I ooimilaed the HMSO to-night, It. arose out of the iaddeot List night whea Air. Chaplin was nurded to move the closure on the AfKomna. amendment to the Rating Bill At the time it was not certain how often Mr. Chap .'in haa attempted the ciosure, some say- ing three attempts, but the most- general opiaion was that he had tried twic. b the journal of the House, however, ohis morn- ing there is record of Mr. Chaplin moving the closure onjy onoe. Armed with the II ioumai, and with consdoueaesB of what he had seen with bis own eyes, Mr. Ellis Grif- fith rose ki his place to-night, and, being re- ferred by Mr. Speaker to tke Chairman, he appealed to him whether it was not twice the closure waa moved, and would not the the closure was moved, and would not the Cbaarmain have the entry corrected. Mr. Lowtber, wbo has a fine appreciation of I humour, explained that the entry had been made at his own direction, for -Nir.- Chaplin had actually only moved the closure OIFJe. He bad "exhibited iiKbcataoEs'' of repeating tbe BiotAon, but, said Mr. Lowther, "ne evi- dently gathered from my appearance that I was not favourable, and ht did not make tbe raotkwj." The Hovse was, of coarse, con- vulsed with laughter, Mr. Griffith* oomg. a.p- parently, the only member who did not ap-1 preciate the full humour of it. Asked was not Mr. Chaplin on his feet, "Certainly," replied Mr, Lowtiier; "that, is what I meant by 'exhibiting indications. Vincentiana.

W. Lovrther, who bad intervened to help the memoer for Central SLaSIekt. The sparring was quite good-lnumoured, andi members laiighed de- lightedly when Sir Howard gave a deep groan of despair at the refusal of the Minister. More Petitions.

KP.COLR Tiie rimes" on Friday morning piiblisbed I the. text of a. dispatch which has been received by the High Gonimiasioner from Mr. Cham- berlain in reply to President Kruger's mes- sage complaining of tbe attitude of her Majesty's Government. "'It is incorrect to :a.y," tie tclegrapha, 'that the alieged action of the persona who knew of the inroad be- fort-htma. and supported it has been defended by her Majesty's Government, or by any I responsible persons, on the ground that they aetod in the interest of and for the exten- sion of Imperialism in South Africa. Her Majesty's Government have promised a full Parliamentary inquiry, as soon as the legal proceedings against Dr. Jameson and bis officers* have b>. 'a concluded, to examine the cnarter granted to the British South Africa Company and the operation of its provisions, | and to eonfflder whether any improvements | in it Are desirable. In the meantime, her Majesty's Government cauuot see that the exercise of clemency by the President in the, case of the persons who pleaded iuilty in i the trial at Pretoria is, or ought to be, de- per,lent upon the language of some unknown and UESpeciiieG jiereons who have been sup posed to defend the inroad, and they have •sontodeuoft that the President will take no i account of such irresponsible utterances."

Mr. The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I am unable to answer the second part of the question. Of course, many aliens have beên employed in positions of trust by her Majesty's Government and their predecessor-. Mr. Beit has not been naturalised a British sub- ject. There, is no necessity to take the course suggested in the concluding part of the iiue.stiou, as Mr Beit has already voluntarily tendered his resignation to his colleagues. Mr. BAYLEY: Has the res ignation l>een i accepted ? Mr. CHAMBERLAIN: I hare no informa- tion. THE PRETORIA PRISONERS. In the House of Commons on Friday In reply to Mr. Patrick M'Hugb, Mr. CHAMBERLAIN said be had not yet learned what punishment was to be substituted for the commuted death penalties pastjed on t-h-i Reform leaders. He had no official lnforma- tion as to the prison treatment of these gentlemen, but. according, to the news- paper reports, they ami the other political prisoners enjoyed certain indulgences, (Ironical Nationalist cheers.)

He did not mean to say that the Chartered Com- pany was a perfect government; he did not agree with them on all points, but he declared that the company had endeavoured to better the country, and that the state of Maiabeleland was better now than it was before the war. A great many people said that concessions were obtained from Lobengula in an underhanded way.

MINES REGULATION BILL. OPPOSITION OF THE MINERS' FEDERATION. A meeting of tne executive committee of the Miners' Federation of Givjtt Britain was held at P.Lr.nrunghaiii on Friday to discuss Govern me-nt labour legislation. Mr. Piokard, M.P-, presided. It was resolved to petition Parlia- ment against the Mines Regulation Bill and to ask the Home Secretary to receive a. deputa- tion on the subject. A resolution was passed protesting against the clause being in- corporated within the scope of the Truck Act dealuig with fines or deductions in connection with work in mines, eeeing that all these I matters are now provided for under the Mines Regulation Act, and appealing to members of Parliament to resist the proposals. It was decided to ask the National Union and the I South Wales Association# to oo-operate.
1 UNIONIST POLICY! CRITICISED. j SPERCH BY LOi; D ROSEBERY j The Earl of Rosebery visited Ne.vtou Abbot on Friday for the purpose of addres- sing a political meet.ing in connection with a confeience organised by the Devon Liberal I Federation. On arriving at the station his lordsiiip was presented with an address, and in reply eulogised the qualities of Mr. SeaIe-Hayne, the member for the division. His lordship w-a.s afterwards driven through the town to the residence of Mr. William Vickery, J.P., where he rested until the evening meeting. The meeting was held in the Butter Market, which was specially fitted j for the occasion to accommodate between 3,000 and 4,000 persons. The chair was taken by Mr. C, T. D. Aoland. Lord Rose- bery on entering was most entliusiasueaiiy received. The Chairman. in opening the proceedings, said they all felt sure the Liberal party had a brilliant future before it under the leader- ship of the noble lord. (Chceis.) Lord Rosebery on rising was again loudly cheered. He said it wa.s a long time since he and the chairman first met. He had always hPè-ll a little under the chairman's precedence, because he began as his fag at Eton—(laughter)—and he little thought when he pr>aohed itna eggs at Eton that they would meet under the present circumstances. (Laughter.) It was a pleasure to come to Devonshire, for it was one of the few places which stood, where it did before the general election. The Liberal party had t.o lie low for a time, and he was not sure that it waa not well for them. In cimcs of prosperity they were apt to wax fat and kick out, but in times of adversity they were able to cultivate, under the discipline of sorrow, that cohesion cf fello-wslnp sometimes overlooked in the moment of atfluence. (Cheers.) The Education Bill bad been carried by a great majority and under circumstance's which left u deep and painful impression upon him. (A Voice: "LishiMn") He would not allude further to that painful subject that night. Enough would be said about it at other times. It was a curious fact that. in ail the speeches which had been made in favour of the Bill there was contained some objection or other to some of its provisions. The fact, was, no one liked the Bill. For the lovers of do- nominationalisru it lid not give enough, and for the rest of the nation it gave a great deal too much. Tbe Bill, again, settled nothing, and it unsettled everything—(cheers)-— and when they began to unsettle where were. they going to stop ? There was -retaliation in iinsettiemeat as well as in most other things. Tatkft. for instance, the religious difficulty. They were told they 1nu.1t gratify the wishes of pious parents to bave their children in- structed in tbe dbgmas which they favoured. But what they bad to consider was, not the pious parents, who would look after their children, but the indiilerent people, who were indifferent as to the children, and there would be a struggle over the twenty-seventh clause in regard to this matter. Another matter which the Bill unsettled was the school boards. In Devonshire there were 153 school boards—had they served tbe people so badly tba4> they wore willing to give them up? (Ones of "No.") Well, but after this Bill was passed they would have a. daily struggle for existence. The Bill, again, wished to curb the educational development of this country bv stereotyping the payment for it. Was this a wise time to do that, when England found herself handicapped by the superior technical education afforded i-n Ger- many and Switzerland ? A short time ago we were singing war soags against Ger- many, but now we were going to say to her, "We will go no further in the race we will stunt and cripple the education of our growing generations." Well, he (Lord Rose- beay) was a Scotchman, and, thank God, the Bill could not apply to Scotland. (Laughter.) Next, as to the Agricultural Rating Bill. According to the Government reaso»:t»g( it seemed to him that the tenant farmer WVIM. pay half hds rate for the next few yeara, and that wouldTje his "benefit; then the"land- lord womid raise his re at iu proportion, and that would be the landlords benefit, and all the time the British taxpayer, who was land- lord and tenant, would be paying two millions a year to secure these price- less benefits. The agricultural labourer did not benefit at all under the Bill If there was a deep gold mine in the middle of the oountry he should be in favour of everybody's rates being paid, but, unfortu- nately, there w&s no such gold mine j £ existence, and if one did not pay somebody else must, and, rlcpond upon it, he would not like that operation. Then, again, there was the urban ratepayer to be considered; when they once began to subsidise a. cl.iss, other classes would clamour to be subsidised also. Had not urban ratepayers also got votes? And when the time came they would demand similar relief to that now being given to tho agricultural ratepayers. He saw in thif Bill thereon of an enormous Imperial expenditure, which they were not wise m undertaking to meet. (Cheers.) His second point was this: If the agricultural tenant was to benefit by this Bill in any sort of propor- tion to the sacrifice it entailed on Imperial re- sources, he would say, "Let the question of principle pass, and let w, give this relief." But that was not so. Take two concrete cfwes. On one estate m the Eastern Counties relief would amount to only gel per acre. and on another to 6d. an axTe. Why the Government bad; not touched the fringe of the subject, and for real relief agriculture must look, not to extravagant assistance from the rates, but to the reduction of -ent. (Cheers.) The Government limited the Bill tc five veara. Why did they do so? It was because then another election would be coming, and they would renew the measure, and pose as the friends of the farmers. Wo talked about our great material prosperity. There was no subject to vhich all tWking politicians looked forward with so much uneasiness as the state of our iinanoes. It was satisfac- tory this year, and might be so next year, but there was a TlerpetuaJ voice raised for expenditure, and no voice, however feeble, rais'-l for economy^The result was that. we 'iÆ«.1 in tune oi^i-ce reached an ex- penditure on Imperial purposes alone of over one hundred and one millions a year. A war might come, even under- so peaceful a Foreign Secretary as Lord Salisbury—(laugh- ter)—and when the pinch came where were we to raise new forms of taxation? Then I they would realise that they were living finan- cially in a fool's paradise, and they would ¡ not give these grants in aid unless they were I satisfied that they bad a substantia] return. Proceeding to deal with foreign affairs, his lordship emphasised the necessity for the im- mediate holding of an inquirv into recent- affairs in South Africa, and feat it sbordd ')C searching and complete. The Armenian question obtained a passing notice, and then Lord Rosebery pointed the moral that the Libera', party had three enemies to tight ip the future--the Government, the people who it mined then. to power, and the ttpai/.iy in the country, to the lac.ter of which caul's might lw- attributed the result of the last general election. The Gov eminent must, he said, be jicged, not by words, but by actions if b" c li.Mituents saw in the present Govirnsi tnt the embodiment. of universal peace, of equal justice to ail classes, of wise economy and beneficent social reform they would keep the Government in power, a.nd he would nut blame them for it, But if they s, the reverse, if they saw constant foreign and Colonial complications, if they saw reckless and increasing expen- diture, if they -saw legislation, not in the interests of the nation as a whole, but of particular classes and creeds-if, in a word, the nation began to realise that it had been fooled, their great majority would melt away like snow in a thaw, and giad and proud would he be, and so, he hoped, would they be, if it should be the sun of Devon- shire that should set that thaw in motion. (Loud cheers.)
BREAK-UP OF THE IRISH- RADICAL ALLIANCE. HOME RULE RELEGATED TO THE BACKGROUND. The alliance between the English Liberals and the lush Nationalists (says the "Daily 'Ù:lt:'gra.ph') appears to be gradually growing weaker and weaker. So far as the Radical wing ot the Liberal party are concerned, the action of Mr. Dillon and his followers in supporting the Education Bill uf a Unionist Government has been as the la.s; straw on the camel's back, for the new Radical Com- mittee have removed Home Rule from the first place in the programme, and set up Abolition of the House of Lords in its stead. It is untrue that Home Rule has been banished entirely, but it has been dis- guised under tne name of Devolution. What the new cry really means is not yet certain, but it is supposed substantially to embody the plan of Sir Charles Dilke, who favours a moderate measure of Home Rule for all the various parts of tlte United Kingdom, though he is not prepared to advocate a federal scheme involving the creation of four Parlia- ments, or even four Executives. The lobby representative of the Press Association has been making special inquiries as to the nature and extent of tuo rumoured rift. Among the Liberal members consulted he finds an almost general opinion, which several of them believe to be largely shared by their constituents, that the former affiance between the two parties no longer continues in the same effective form as before, but only nominally exists, and that there is little pro- bability of the Liberal party holding itself bound upon the next opportunity to put in the forefront of its programme so large a. measure of Home Rule as Mr. Gladstone introduced. This change in, their mutual relationship is due. in part, but not entire'v. to the recent vote of the Irish Xatior-' s for the second reading of the E<lu,ca,tit)n ,). .1., The Irish. Parliamentary party state there can be no alliance between t-hein or any English party except on terms of putting Home Rule in the same position as Mr. Glad- stone put rt. They regard as absurd the statement that by voting for the Education Bill they were putting that Jiie.osure before Home Rule, as Mr. Dillon had clearly ex- plained the attitude of himself and oolleaguen on the subject.
ON THE LOOK OUT FOR HEIRESSES INQUIRY AGENT'S EXPLOIT IN WALES. In the Chancery Division on Friday Mr. Justice Romer delivered judgment in the ease of Rees v. De Bernardy. De Beraardy, an inquiry agent in Bedford-row, London, dis- covered that certain unclaimed property, valued at some thousands of pounds, helonged to two old women, one of whom, resided in South Wales and the other in the Midlands. De Bernardy sought out the old women, Mrs. York and Mrs. Waters, and got them to sign a document by which ha waf to have haLF the property in the event of its recovery.Mr. Justice Romer said that the plaintiffs were entitled to succeed in their action for the rewoiseioni of the contract they «trued. Time pr#ssod at one stage of the proceedings, and the defendant knew that, unless hE, was very prompt, there was every proiba-brlity« of Mrs. York and Mrs*. Waters ascertaining' their rights without hie intervention. In the learned judge's cpjjaion the defendant took advantage of tne two women, who were advanced in years, humble in position, and1 illiterate, although shrewd. He, therefore, ordered the cancella- tion of the agreement, the plaintiffs having offered before his lordship to allow the defen- dant a reasonable sum for the services he had rendered and the expenses he had incurred. Inquiry was to be made as to what suon might be eo allowed, but he would have to pay the costs of the action up to and including judg- ment.
