THE WEEK'S NEWS. An official buMetin shows that the cholera epidemic in Russia is increasing. A farmer named Edward Kirk has been tramp- led on and killed by a cow at Thornton, near Fleet- wood. William Sockett, butcher, Crossens, near South- port, has been fined £ 20 and costs for having de- posited for sale certain meat unfit for human' food. A New York telegram says that no news has yet been received of the overdue Clyde steamship Alva, and there is little hope that she is still Afloat. Mr Edward Kerrigan, described as a wealthy Irish-American from Philadelphia, died very sud- denly on the steamer Violet during the passage from Dublin to Holyhead. A one-legged bicyclist named Budleson has just accomplished the feat of pedalling across the Jiorth American continent from Frisco to New York, taking less than 67 days to do it. An electric car left the rails while descending a Ataep hill in Cincinnati and was wrecked. Two passengers were killed, and six others fatally and 40 seriously iniured. A lad named Appledore, aged 10, fell from a cliff at Land's End, a distance of nearly 200 feet. He was picked up on the beach terribly injured and unconscious, but he is expected to recover. The legal advisers of the Government are understood to be of opinion that the Parish Councils Bill will not, in its present form touch either ecclesiastical charities or national schools. A St. Petersburg telegram says that a Nihilist conspiracy against the Czar has been discovered at Moscow, and that 85 students, eight professors, Mil five ladies have been arrested. Herr Emerich Nagy, the famous tragedian and leading member of the Hungarian National Thea- tre, has committed suicide by shooting himself at Puerbach, in an alleged fit of jealousy. A. J. Monson, who was arrested a little while Ago on a charge of shooting Leiutenant Ham- itoxmgh at Ardlamont, near the Kyles of Bute, lias been commited for trial on the charge of mur- der. DR. POLLARD SAYS OF SHFRMAN RUPTURE ^TREATMENT :—He thanks God and every other influence that determined him to try it. All who want to get rid of Rupture and Trusses should aead to J. A. Sherman, Hernia Specialist, 64, Chancery Lane, London, for his book with English endorsements, post free, 7d. A sequel to what is known as the Lime-house murder mystery, when a married woman named Adams was stabbed while drinking at a public house bar, has been furnished. An ex-soldier named Lewis who was in the woman's company, was also stabbed. Lewis has now confessed to the Lime-house police that he murdered the woman and stabbed himself. At Bradford, Albert Cowgill, a mill hand, was xemanded on a charge of attempting to murder ids sweetheart, Hannah Wilkinson. The previous night he went to her parents' house. She answered the door, and he straightway drew a knife and stabbed her between the shoulders and again in the breast. He then went straight home to bed. The injured girl is in a serious condi- tion. Whilst enjoying himself on Monday evening on oue of the steam roundabouts at Doncaster fair, j Vradford, the popular light-weight jockey, had the misfortune to slip off one of the wooden horses, And. so severely injured one of his shoulders that after riding Ben Shie in the FitzWilliam Stakes «o. Tuesday he found it impossible to meet his en- cagemente during the afternoon. cagemente during the afternoon. A mason named Joseph Parry on Thursday dis- covered the body of a domestic servant named JBllen Wanklin on the shore near Portmadoc. It appealed that the girl, who came from Leomin- ster, was in service at Mrs Jephrey's boarding- house, Criccieth, and was missing since Sunday evening. On the same evening she was seen walking towards the Black Rocks, distant a mile or two from where the body was found. At the Great Western Colliery, Pontypridd, a number of trams were being taken along the in- cline near Barry railway station when the hitch- ing of the second tram broke and the others lshed down the incline to the bottom, where a J number of men were at work. One man, named David Bassett, was killed and four others seri- ( ously injured. i An inquest was held at Bootle on the body of a labourer named Thomas Williams, aged sixty- three, who while under arrest for drunkenness had committed suicide in his cell by tying his shirt sleeve round his neck and suspending him- self from a ventilator. The evidence as to deceased's condition at the time of his arrest was conflicting, but eventually the jury found that he committed suicide whilst temporarily insane. The Corone's inquiry as to the cause of the death of the boy Trueman, who was drowned in the canal at Aintree took place on Tuesday. It was originally alleged that the boy had been told to throw a lar^e stone attached to a piece of rope into the canal, and that when he did so the stone pulled him in. This story was entirely disproved, for the evidence of the boy's companions showed that he accidentally fell into the water, and was tmable to catch hold of a rope that was thrown to liim. A verdict of accidental death was returned. At the recent Hunters' Show at Carmarthen, says a corespondent of Woman, a sad-faced young woman, simply dressed in pale heliotrope, accom- panied by a dapper, military-looking man, at- tracted much attention. So timid and fragile she looked, and so nice," that the uninitiated stran- ger must have wondered why all the other woman who evidently knew who she was, carefully held aloof from her. The woman was Mrs Osborne, whose name is so well-known in connection with the Pearl Case." The man was her loyal hus- bmd. A police inspector named Allan was murdered at Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow. The inspector and a constable named Pirie were arresting two men for attempting to rob a drunken man. Pirie secured his prisoner and hurried off to the station. When he returned he found Inspector Allan lying in the road dead from loss of blood. The man whom he had seized had disappeared. Allan had teen wounded in the left trroin and in the back, the first wound severing the main artery. His assailant, who is supposed to be a returned con- vict named Coubrough. has no yet been arrested. SENTENCED TO DEATH.—These are the most terribly significant three words we have in the English language. Thousands of wretched crea- tures, whose lives have become forfeited to the outraged laws of their country, have heard them pronounced with feelings of sickening terror. The man who has neglected the most simple laws of heilth feels that all is indeed lost, when the dread sentence is pronounced by the doctor, who has used all his medical skill upon him, in vain. In the letter case, however, the door of hope has been opened, through the medium of Holloway's Pills and Ointment. They have effected at the last moment, as thous >nds of testimonials, being constantly received, will prove. Two suicides of a painful character were com- mitted last week at Heading. Solomon Ehren- berg, a tailor, sent oae of his errand boys out aboub eight o'clock il the morning to purchase the strongest poison he could to kill a dog with. The boy returned with the poison, and about half-past eight the wife of the deceased went to liis bedroom and found him lying on the floor dead. The second case was that of Colour-Sergt. John Benning, stationed at the barracks, who shot himself through the head. About a quarter past twelve p.m., one of the privates heard the report of a rifle, and on going to a tent in the drill ground be found Benning dead. Deceased had removed the boot and sock of the right foot, placed the muzzle of the lifle in his mouth, and pulled the trigger with his toe. A curious breach of promise case was heard at Liverpool. Miss Edith Catherine Power, the plaintiff, was employed at a shop at which a Mr Archibald Bathgate Lamberton, a member of a firm of glass merchants in Glasgow, was in the habit of calling on business. He saw the plaintiff, and apparently fell in love with her. After visit- dog her at her home he became engaged to her, and several times told her that they would be married when better times came and he was able to keep a wife. During a visit to some friends at Walton, Miss Power casually mentioned that she engaged to the defendant, and was astounded when a lady present told her that Lamberton -already had a wife in Glasgow. The jury awarded Jket JtiSjQ and costs.
WALES A a U WEL SH At Conway brewster sessions there were some warm encounters between the local temperance reformers and the representatives of the licence holders. In Wales, as in England and Scotland, the fruit crop is very abundant this year. At Denbigh mar- ket damson plums were selling at from lid. to 2d per quart, and apples could be had at almost any price." Bala has the distinction of being the first place in North Wales to be visited by the Land Com- mission. The Commission sits there on Tuesday (to-day)and it is expected that some interesting evidence will be forthcoming. Mr A. Lloyd, deputy Coroner for Flintshire, was fined at St. Asaph petty sessions for having on several occasions practised as a solicitor while he was without a certificate. The hearing of the case appears to have given rise to some lively scenes. Several Welsh seamen are reported to be among the victims of an outbreak of cholera on board the steamship Etna, which was at the time making a voyage on the west coast of Arabia. The passen- gers were mostly Arab pilgrims, and over a hun- dred of them died. Arthur Cliffe, 15 years of age, employed at Plas Newydd, went out to bathe in the Menai Straits, and getting out of his depth was drowned. The Anglesey coroner held an inquest on the body, and the jury returned a verdict of accidentally drowned whilst bathing. Unlike the Eisteddfod of this year, last year's celebration at Rhyl appears to have been a great financial success. At a meeting it was announced that there was a balance in hand of about t270. I' One-half of this surplus is to go to the Eistedd- fod Association and the other half to the local intermediate education fund. the two men—John Lloyd of Welshpool and John Mitchel-who were so seriously injuted in the fall of earth at Aberystwyth, are making favourable progress towards recovery, but it will probably some weeks before they will be able to leave the Infirmary. The fund for the relief of the sufferers amounts to considerably over JBIOQ. Mrs Wynford Philipps, president of the Welsh Union of Women's Liberal Association. delivered a stirring address at Buthin. A resolution was adopted in favour of the Liberal programme in general and of Disestablishment in particular. A similar resolution was adopted at a meeting of the Carnarvon Women's Liberal Association, pre- sided over by Mr Bryn Roberts, M.P. The strike at the Llechwedd Quarry, Festiniog, came to an end on Wednesday. rlhe quarrymen who number about five hundred, propose to return to work on the employers' terms. During the four months they have been out the men have been pretty freely supported by the public, but they did not receive the financial aid they had exptcted from the quarrymen in the other dis- tricts of North Wales. In disposing of a case at the Police Court, W rex- ham, in which two bicyclists were charged with not carrying lamps when out riding after night- fall, Sir Robert Cunliffe said some strong things about bicyclists in general. This bicycle riding," he said, was becoming a dangerous nuisance," and he expressed a hope that the law might soon be made more stringent in order that the nuisance migtt be put down. In North Wales there has within the past year or two been an enormous increase in the number of vagrants. In Denbighshire, the num- ber of tramps relieved in 1875 was 2,760, and last year the total was no less than 6,132. It is felt that something in the way of united action is aecesary in order to deal with the evil, and it has been arranged to hold a conference at Rhyl to :onsider the whole quest All the Poor-law I Unions in North Wales will be represented. His Honour Judge Sir Horatio Lloyd received from a triend who was out at Khartoum with Gen- eral Gordon an interesting relic of that great man —viz., an Italian tortoiseshell cigarette case. General Gordon presented it to his friend, who was an army surgeon at Khartoum, and he re- burned to England an invalid and shortly after- wards died, but before his death gave the cigar- ette case to Sir Horatio Lloyd. A shocking accident befel a visitor at Saunders- foot, near Tenby. Mr Rhodes, of Clifton, was climbing a high cliff between Monkstone Point and Saundersfoot Harbour for thepurpott of obtaining, rare ferns, when he fell from a consider- able height, sustaining severe injuries, breaking a leg and an arm, and otherwise hurting himself. The tide being full Mr Rhodes was brought into Saunderson in a boat, and was deemed in a pre- carious state. The Bishop of St. David's takes exception to the Duke of Argyll's recent statement that the .Y Clergy Discipline Act of last year affected chiefly the Church in Wales. By way of refut- ing the Duke's assertion, he mentions that of the seven cases of clerical misconduct that have been tried under the Act only two have arisen in in Welsh dioceses. In reply to the letter of the Bishop the Duke of Argyll writes to the Times j apologising. He states that no such idea had ever suggested itself to him. I For once in a way the publicans have been receiving compliments instead of criticism. At the Flint licensing sessions the police reported that they had received considerable support from the license holders of the borougn in putting down drunkenness and in dealing with the bona fide traveller difficulty. The magistrates appeared to think there were far more public-houses in the town than there was any need for, but after the complimentary language of the police they felt i they they had no alternative but to renew all the old licences, and they did so. In the parish of Penymynydd, Anglesey, there are almshouses which appear to have been origin- ally intended for the maintainance of ten poor men of honest conversation and past the age of fifty years." Now they are in the hands of trus- tees, who seek to enforce rules one of which is to the effect that each inmate shall, at the peril of fine or expulsion, attend service at the parish church of Penymynydd. An ejectment order has been made against one of the inmates because he broke thi3 rule, and also a rule to the effect that each pensioner shall reside in the house that is granted to him. oome remarkable admissions were made in the Bankruptcy Court at Chester bya\VWsh grocer named John Wynne, who carried on business- a*t, Halendy, Mostyn. Owing te the reckless.manner in which he has been in the habit of giving credit to colliers and others his book debts, it appeaed, have been allowed to run up to.97,391, 10s. 7d.. and of this X5,484, 12s. 9d. is set down as doubt- tul" and XI,906 10s. 7d. as bad." The Deputy Official Receiver declared that it would be imposs- ible for the debts to realise more than say R160 in anything like a reasonable period. The Regis- tar of the Court characterised the debtor's con- duct as madness, positive madness. The Coroner's jurymen at Rhyl have a grievance It is said that those who are summoned to se ve are nearly always tradesmen of the town who can ill afford the time, and as one of their number— a licensed victualler-declared, it is not fair that he should be asked to serve four timed in six weeks, when the nubility of the town are allowed to loaf about." The Coroner disclaims anything like respect of persons in the selection of the jury- men. Meanwhile, some of the jurymen are mark- ing their displeasure by demanding to b-j sworn in the Scotch fashion-smoking in court, wearing their hats while the inquest is in progress, and other little departures irom the use and wont of such occasions. THE NORTH WALKS LIBERAL, FEDERATION.—A meeting of the executive of the North Wales Liberal Federation was held at Chester on Saturday. Mr A. C. Humphreys-Owen presided. The following resolution was carried £ -/« That this meeting of th North Wales Libert f'edera- tion, sp cially convened to consider the lucent correspondence between Mr Gladstone and the Welsh Parliamentary party, cordially endorses the resolution passed by that party on Sept. 1st, and begs respectfully to assure Mr Gladstone and tiie Government that nothing short of the course indicated by that resolution will satisfy the Welsh people; that copies of this resolution be sent to the Prime Minister and the other members of the Cabinet."
JSPIHlf OF THE WELSH PRESS. [BY «* RHYLYCHEINWR."] ROASTING HR. BRYN ROBEBT8. The occupation of the Welsh papers for the last week has been that of roasting Mr Bryn Rob- erts. In other words the member for the Eifion Division of Carnarvonshire is called to account, with no little severity for the sentiments express- ed in his letter explaining why he refused to sign the round-robin sent by the Welsh members to Mr Gladstone. None does this roasting process half so effectually as Dafydd Dafis," in his clever autobiographical sketch in the Genedl; it would hardly be an exaggeration to say perhaps that from their commencement the main ohject of these letters has been to keep an eye on Mr Bryn Rob- erts. The identity of Dafydd Dafis is becom- ing a matter of ever increasing interest. Some of the Welsh papers now give the opinions pro- mulgated by writers on the subject. Some attrib- ute their authority to Mr Lloyd-George and to Mr Thomas Ellis, while another theory which has been propounded is that three or four of the Welsh members collaborate the articles. These appear I to me to be emphatically off he scent, and I am I inclined to believe that they are the production, not of any member of Parliament, but of a London I gentleman prominently connected with all Welsh movements. In his last installment I describes how his wife Claudia 'roasted Mr Bryn Roberts over his manifesto, at a dinner given by Mrs Wynford Phillips, with whom Dafydd appears to be ultimately acquainted. One of his quaint parallels between himself and Mr Wynford Phil- ( lips is that each of them has a wife who, for her loquacity and enthusiam, is better qualified than her husband tor a seat in Parliament. The whole account is written in the raciett Welsh, and the sailent features of the situation are hit off in a manner not unworthy of The Biglow Papers." Mr Bryn Roberts' letter is also dissected by other parties. The Baner deals with it in an article of five columns in which it opines that "the reasons given by Mr Roberts for his conduct are not only utterly inadequate to justify it, but they are like- ly to shake the confidence of men in him. Hi", fault is, however, not so great as to justify the Liberal electors in his division in bringing out a candidate against him, as on every question that is before the country he is as good a Liberal as the constituency could have. He is a Liberal from conviction, a Nonconformist, and an advocate of Disestablishment. He differed from the others as to the best time of bringing that question forward, and as it was not a matter of principal, he ought to have subordinated his own view to that of the majority. His letter has done immense harm to the cause." The Goleuad believes that Mr Rob- erts s views is that of keen-sighted politican, but regrets the allusions to his fellow-members. We now believe more strongly than ever in hav- ing a Welsh party in Parliament." Tarian y Gweithiwr does not dispute Mr Roberts's hones- ty we know he is a good Nonconformist. Bnt he should have stronger reasons than he has for seceding from his fellow-members and causing the enemy to believe that there is a split in the camp." The same paper, in its Parliamentary Notes," remarks that the letter shows great ability, but thinks that if all were like Mr Bryn Roberts. the uisestablishment question would- not be in the state it now is. The Manchester correspondent of f i ^ymro considers Mr Roberts' explanation a luminous and precise one; the question is a difficult one—dilatoriness is dangerous, and revolt in unwise." Gwalia thinks that the letter con- tains very striking portraits of the Welsh mem- bers by one of themselves. They are rash and inexperienced youths, who have recently rushed into politics/' The Herald Cymraeg, while com- mending Mr Roberts "for defending his case with ability and good temper, regrets it cannot agree with him and thinks the publication of his letter has not promoted the cause." The Llan collects various opinions on the letter; the Celt dissapproves of it; but the Tyst "leans towards Mr Roberts' views and thinks every Liberal must respect his independence of spirit and his courage- ous spirit in standing by himself." HOMk SULK AND BIsESl1 AifLlSHMENT. It is difficult to select from the choice mass of contributions, good, bad, and indifferent, on these subjects in the Welsh Press. All the current issues were in the press before the important meeting of the W elh members on Friday week. The London correspondent of the Baner traces out the course of events with his usual foresight. We are now in sight of the end with Home Rule, he says. The Lords will, of course, throw it out, but the Government will not dissolve on that account, as the Bill will be sent up a second time next year. In the meantime the way is clear for other measures. "What measures?" he asks. "From the standpoint of Welsh Liberalism, no answer is possible but-Disestablishment of the Church in Wales. We stand by the programme of the Liberal party, and if our representatives are only firm and resolute, there is no doubt that the demands will be conceded. But the Welsh mem- bers must arrive at an understanding." Mr Lloyd George, in his Parliamentary Letter to the Genedl, pays a tribute to Mr Gladstone's astonish- vigour and viril ty. He is shrewder than ever. A deputation came to wait on him about Scotch Disestablishment. He smiled tenderly on them, he spoke mildly to them for half-an-hour, yet he promised nothing. They went home, however, gladly thinking that they had attained their object, and the likelihood that it is only when they have redched the Highlands that they will discover that they have returned empty-handed. Wales must see that she is not fooled in this fashion." The Brython Cymreig maintains that the Government has all along been fooling Wales on this question. THE WELSH STRIKES. The protracted strike of the North Wales quarrymen and the vast struggle of the miners and hauliers in South Wales seem alike to be now drawing to a close. Reports of meetings of the quarrymen at Festiniog, as given in Gwalia and Chwarelwr Cwmreig, show that disunion has set in among the strikers, who bitterly reproach each other with such terms as "Judas." The Werin believes that the 500 quarrymen cannot now return to work without sacrificing their honour. They are fighting their fellow-workmen's battles, and should be maintained by them. The moral to he drawn from the strike is, it says, the need of boards of arbitration. Four months ago the Llechwedd Quarry seemed the one where a dis- pute would be peaceably settled, and yet a cloud no bigger than a man's hand has grown and darkened the sky for four months. Tarian y Gweithiwr, referring to the South Wales strike, say "there are unmistak ble signs that the strike, the most foolish that has taken place within the memory of man, is drawing to its end. A strike like this could not succeed. It was commenced in a rash and heedless spirit; the I strikers had no leaders and no programme; they had no fund to fall back upon, nor monev laid bv. so that in the very first week famine stared them in the face. We do not deny that the workmen are being hard-pressed, or that strikes are desir- able in such cases. But the workmen promised to abide by the sliding-scale, and before they throw it away let them find a better arrangement. The Federation plan is now being tried in England, and when weighed in the balance it is found wanting. We protest, too, against the tyranny of the mob." The Cyrmo in a leader on the same subject, quotes an old Welsh proverb," A rash deed is not a wise deed," and "rashness, if not something worse, was the origin of this strike. Welshmen are being foolishly led away by inter- meddling Englishm- n, as they were before by Halliday andothets."

SHOOTING A BURGLAB. A startling occurrence took place in the early hours of Tuesday morning at the Victoria public- house, in Hardman-straet, Deansgate. The landlord is named Luke Higgms. Shortly after two o'clock k'6.?L°U,s n ^er ^usband, and remarked that she thought she had heard somebody moving in the rooms below. Higgings got out of bed, and, arming himself wiih a loaded revolver, went downstairs. Hearing a noise in the kitchen, he opened the door and called out II Who's there ?" He received no re- ply, and ftoticing the figure of a man crouching he hied a shot from his revolver. A scream was im- mediately heard, and on investigation Higgins found that he had shot a youth in the chest. He at once went out in search of the police, and returned with a police-constable. The officer recognised the burglar as Owen Riley, sixteen years of agf, who aloo resided in Hardman-street. He had recently been discharged from prison upon the termination of a sentence of two month's imprisonment for shopbreaking. Riley was taken to the Royal Infirmary, where it was found that the bullet had penetrated the chest in close proximity to the heart. The condition of the lad was deemed so serious that his dying depositions were taken by one of the city justices. Higgins was taken to the police-station, where he was charged with shooting at Riley with intent to do gnevcus bodily •4a-rm* **nor to beiDg taken the youthful burglar ha 1 partaken of a meal of bread and cheese, and had helped himself pretty freely to the content.' of one of the tills. In the course of the afternoon Higgins was taken before the magistrates at the City Police-court and remanded, bail being allowed.
ITHE DEATH OF EMIN PASHA. All doubt concerning the death of Emin Pasha now seems to be removed by the circumstantial account of his murder given to Mr A. J. Swann in Ujiji. Thi* gentleman, who for ten years has been working 'm the London Missionary Society's staff on Lake Tan- ganyika, in Ujiji, has just reached London, accom- panied by his wife, the only European lady who hits ever visited that country. Speaking of Emin Pasha's death to a repretentai ive of Renter's Agency, Mr bwann said As to the death of Emin there is no question. In the interior it is accepted as a fact, though some uncertainty prevails at the coast. Per- sonally I am as certain that Emin is a dead man as I am that I am sitting here. The report of his death came to me at Ujiji In consequence of a letter which had been received there asking what should be done I witn jumii a elllccts, I at once made inquiries, and was told that he had been killed in the Manyema country, and that his followers, consisting of 30 Nubian soldiers, had been killed and eaten. This re- port, which was of a most circumstantial character, reached from four different sources in Ujiji, and to my mind is as conclusive aa anything can be in Africa. It is implicitly believed by all the Arabs, who seem very well pleased to have at last got rid of Emin One of my informants was an Arab who had been travelling on Emin's route. This Arab not only de- scribed Emin s journey, but although he had probably never seen a map in his life sketched on a piece of paper the various places touched by the German ex. plorer, and described how he had been tracked by the Arabs, who had made up their minds to kill him. Jimin passed through Ruanda country and had fol- lowed one of the rivers flowing into the Coneo until ne came to Seyd Bin Abed's residence, where he stopped. Shortly after his arrival a number of Arabs went out and asked Emin where he was going. Emin replied that he was going to the coast. Another Arab then went forward and said, 'You are Emin T -n', WM ° klll?d the ArabB at the Victoria Nyanza. I will kill you. He then took out a large curved « r P1 l18 n 'anc*' blandishing it, almost struck off Jimin s head. His body was then thrown to the Manyema, who devoured it, his Nubian followers being afterwards killed and eaten. In taking into account the credibility of this report it must be re- membered that Ujiji is the nearest spot to that where Emin had last been heard off. Emin was on his way R^ F?a8tj SoJm,uch impressed was I with the account that I ordered Kumaliza to get any papers or Jttlth ult by Emin, and tie prouiK-ea to uu L o. TI.t greater; uncertainty is felt on the subject at th- coast but the fact that Emm ha* n, *er been ,een or heard of since he reached Ruanda speaks volume*

A PQLI ICAL It 0 RLD. THE GOVERNMENT AND WALES.—A Lor don' correspondent says :-1 understand that the Welsh Liberals have received a definite and dis- tinct promise from the Government that Welsh Disestablishment will be one of the first measures next session. They are consequently thoroughly satisfied, and will give a steady support to the Parish Councils Bill, which will work a revolution in the local government of the Prin- cipality. Mr Leonard Courtney, M.P., speaking at Lis- keard on Monday, said the Government and its supporters were unanimous in laying upon the Opposition the charge which they had prevented the Home Rule Bill being considered in the usual w y. On that charge the Opposition were not afraid to court the judgment of those with whom the judgment lay. The session had not been wasted. In it the people had been taught what Home Rule really was. No amendment had been proposed but had been serviceable in some way or other, but all their proposals to get real safe- guards against injustice by the Irish Parliament had been rejected. The consequence was that the Irish Parliament was proposed to be established without any of those safe guards which had been found necessary in the great American Constitu- tion. —— "S3 How IT HAPPENED.—When the vote for the salaries of the officers of the House of Lords was reached (during Supply.") Mr Hanbury had the inevitable amendment and motion for reduc- tion, but he had not thought what an opening he was giving to the Radicals. Here was a chance of condemning the House of Lords in the most approved constitutional manner. The Radicals egged Mr Hanbury to go to a division, and then they swarmed into the Opposition lobby, much to the consternation of Sir J. Gorst, Mr Chamberlain and other Unionists, who by this unexpected aid found that they had at last achieved their hearts desire and defeated the Government. The vote however, was received with perfect equanimity by Ministry, and the Opposition were in the awkward predicament of having helped to censure the House of Lords. ZZZHHii THE AUTUMN PROGRAMME.— The Premier announced on Monday the intentions of the Government. The members listened very eagerly and very quietly whilst the Premier with tantalis- ing deliberation balanced the pros and cons of the various courses open to him. The story was all told in five minutes, however. It was very short and it amounted to this, that amongst all the good and urgent measures in their programme the best and most urgent" were the Employers' Liability Bill and the Parish Councils Bill. Each was welcomed by a cheer, but there was obvious disappointment in some quarters that the list was notgonger. On November 2nd the Parish Councils Bill will be moved for second reading. When that stage is passed the Employers' Liability Bill will pass through its remaining stages, and then the Parish Councils Bill be com- pleted. m mm- H A GOVERNMENT DEFEAT.—The Daily News observes that the Government were defeated on Tuesday night in the House of Commons by a small majority and by a curious combination of parties. Mr Hanbury's motion to reduce the salaries of the officers in the House of Lords was carried against the Treasury bench by 103 votes against 95. There can be no doubt that the clerks in the Lords are under worked and over paid. The division may have salutory results, ana we trust that Sir William Harconrt will have a satisfactory statement to make on report. The Clerk of the Parliaments, Mr Graham, probably receives more in proportion to what he does than any other functionary in the United Kingdom. The time may come and that soon when it will be .the duty of the House of Commons to declare that not one penny of the public money shall be wasted in keeping up an assembly which flouts and outrages public opinion as expressed through the representatives of the people. I THE BISHOJPS ANI) WICLSK INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION.—In the House of Commons, on Tues- day, Mr Acland replying to a question said The usual form of the Welsh county schemes under the Intermediate Education Act provides for a system of county schools throught the country to meet the wants of the various districts. There is a county governing body through which the whole system is to some extent under central control, and there are local governing bodies. Under the supervision of these bodies very considerable sums I are allotted in the various counties—first for the country scholarships, for scholars from public ele- mentary schools, second for country bursaries, to cover travelling and lodging or any other inciden- tal expenses of poor scholars, and third, for the county exhibitions which the boys and girls who do well in the intermediate schools may hold at universities and university colleges. In the case of the Cardigan county scheme, to which I assume the hon. member refers, the address passed in the House of Lords has swept away the whole of the provisions which are contained in clauses 47 au l provisions which are contained in clauses 47 au l 81 to 87 for carrying scholars from elementary and intermediate schools, and giving buesaries to poor scholars from the intermediate schools to univer- sity colleges and other places of higher instruction The whole of these provisioni which were swept away by the action of the House of Lords, met with the full assent of everybody concerned in the scheme. THE WELSH PARTY.-The members of the Welsh Parliamentary party met on Friday week to consider the correspondence with Mr Gladstone on the position of the question of Welsh Dises- tablishment in the Liberal programme and to decide on the position of the party in relation to the Government There was a large gatheri n g of the members, and the matter appears to have been exhaustively discussed in all its bearings. Eventually, a mo'ion proposed by Mr Lloyù- George and seconded by Mr Thomas E:lis was adopted. It was to the following effect.-—TIuu having carefully considered the correspondence between Mr Gladstone and the Welsh party una the present situation of the Welsh Dis stablisii- mint question, we confidently rely that the Government will without fail place the Welsh Disestablishment Bill in such a position in the Ministerial programme for next session as will enable the House of Commons to carry it through all its stages and send it up to the Lords betJiv the session is over, and we desire to notify to the' Government that unless the bill is placed in that position we shall, as a party, be under the regret -) table necessity of having to reconsider our atti- tude of support to the Government and to take independe t course." Mr Stuart Rendel journey, d specially from Scotland to preside over the meeting. THE CARDIGAN TITHS RIOTS.-It was known that for his conduct in refusing to coerce the Cardiganshire Police Committee the Home Secretary was to be arraigned on Wednesday, and there was a fairly strong muster of Welsh members. Mr Boscawen's speech was a poor re-hash of his article in this month's National Review. He was feebly supported by Lor,l Cr.in- borne. Mr Samuel Evans and Mr Rees Da vies, who were in full p ssession of all the facts, had no difficulty in disposing of the c:erioal caie. But the most remarkable incident of the debate was the severe dressing which Mr Asquith administered to the Liberal Unionist leader. Mr Chamberlain had not beeu in the House during the earlier stages of the debate, and wh n he rose it was obvious that he was imperfectly acquainted with the facts of the controversy. He, therefore, confined himself to generalities which were quite irrelevant and to a gross misstatement of the circumstances of the case. Mr Asquith's reply was short; it barely took a couple of minutes iu all, but it was one of the most crushing retorts the House has been priviledge to hear. Jvlr Chamberlain looked for once quite abashed, aud although, to save appearances, he mad" a few ineffective observations in reply, the heart lind been taken out of the debate, and it soon collapsed. The stunning majority which supported'the Government in the division provided i fitting termination to the debate.
