THE POLITICAL I SITUATION. I REPORTED (JOLLA I YRITL OF THE NEGOTIATIONS. ANOTHER CONFERENCE IN DOWNING STREET. The Press Association is enabled to stitte authoritatively that there is not the. slightest truth in the report which the Pall Mall (Jjzette published on Friday evening, under all reserve," to the effect that there was a possibility, if not a probability, of the collapse of the arrangement between the Government and the Opposition leaders as to the basis of the Redistribution Bill. The Marquis of Salisbury again called upon the Prime Minister at Downing-street, on Friday forenoon, and in the course of the day Sir C. Dilke also paid several visits to Mr Gladstone, but nothing has arisen to interrupt the success of the negotiations, which have now practically con- cluded. The Press Association states that a meeting of the Conservative party of the House of Lords and the House of Commons will be held at the Carl- ton Club, at noon, ou Tuesday next. The Seats Bill is in the hands of the printers, and there is still an expectation on the part of the Government that they may be in a position to introduce it on .Monday evening. It is with this view that a meeting of the Liberal party h ts been summoned for Monday, and that it is pro- posed to postpone till Tuesday the statement as to the navy. The Daily News says:—"There is no foun- dation for the rumours in circulation that consi- derable differences of opinion have arisen between the leader.3 of the two parties on the Redistribu- tion Bill. livery point at issue has not been set- tled, but the progress made justifies the expecta- :ion that there will be no serious obstacle to the presentation of a complete measure to the House cf Commons next week." The Standard says: There are a few small point.s still to be adjusted, but these can be settled without another formal conference. The Conservative leaders have been informed of, and having given their assent to, the provisions of the Government Redistribution Bill, aud are now, we believe, ready to offer an assurance that on the bill being read a second time they will allow the Franchise Bill to pass the House of Lords. This is, however, conditional on their receiving an assurance that the Redistribution Bill will be passed through the House of Com- mons substantially in the same form in which it has received their approval, and that, in the event of its failing to become law, the Government will resign." The Daily Telegraph understands that towns having two members will remain undivided, but that populous places havmg more than two will be divided intosingle member constituencies." The Morning Post understands that it is extremely doubtful whether the Redistribution Bill can be presented to the House of Commons on Monday next, as important differences have been developed during the negotiations which have been so earnestly carried on. It is uncertain whether further time may not be needed for their consideration. A meeting of the Liberal members of the I of Commons will be held next Monday, at Foreign Office, at 3 p.m.
