THURSDAY. In the House of Lords the Judges' Jurisdiction Bill was read a second time without any discussion. Lord Lyttelton urged the necessity of the Government bringing in a measure to amend the Hours of Labour Regulation Act, which he urged was in its present shape a dead letter. Lord Morley replied that the Government fully realised the necessity of further legislation upon the subject, but had little hope of being able to deal with the question this session. The mode in which the Bridgewater election commission conducted their proceedings was the sub- I ject of a complaint set forth in a petition presented by the Earl of Derby from the electors of that borough, who requested that the matter might be enquired into. In the House of Commons Mr Lefevre announced his intention to bring in a Bill to facilitate the construction and to regulate the working of tramways in public thoroughfares; and the Home Secretary stated that Government would in a short time submit a Bill under which the census might be taken next year. The Home Secretary further stated that considerable progress had been made in the preparation of a Bill to amend the existing law as to trade unions. In reply to a question by Mr Pemberton, the Solicitor-General stated that the Government intended to prosecute Dr Kinglake, Mr Vanderbylt, and Mr Fennelly for bribery at Bridgewater; Sir H. Edwardes and Mr Burreil for bribery at Beverley and Mr Stacey, Mr Hardiment Mr Young, and Mr Pennyfather, for bribery at the Norwich election. Mr Gladstone promised to introduce his proposed measure with reference to the land of the United Kingdom before the Irish Land Bill passed into committee. The Pilotage Bill was read a second time and referred to a select committee. In the course of a discussion on the War Office Bill, which was ultimately read a second time, Mr Stansfeld explained that the proposed distri- bution of the duties of that department would secure greater efficiency and economy in the subordinate departments. The Merchant Shipping Bill was postponed until the 10th of March.
