MR. LABOUCHERE AND THE. MONEY- LENDING SCANDALS. « The Exchange Telegraph Company states that Mr. Labouchere, having expressed a desire to serve next session on the Money-lending Committee, it is probable that the hon. member's name will be added to that body when the formal motion for the reappointment of the committee is brought forward on the reassembling of Parliament next year. It is uncertain at present whether the committee will prolong their inquiries to any great extent into the practices adopted by the money-lending profession, which were attended by so many dramatic scenes in the ease of Mr. Kirkwood. There is, however, reason to believe that the relations subsisting between some members of the fraternity and certain insurance offices (the existence of which was established by an incidental disclosure in the course of last session) may not improbably form the subject of investigation at an early period. This will practically close the case for the prosecution, so to speak, and the committee will thereupon turn their attention to the remedial measures which it may be found necessary to recommend, finally presenting their report to Parliament before the close of the session. In regard to this last branch of the inquiry, the Exchange Telegraph Company has ascertained that evidence will be tendered on behalf of the Irish Agricultural Organisation Society and the Agricultural Banks Association to prove the efficacy of the system which has been adopted with some considerable degree of success by both these bodies.
