TERRIBLE FIRE IN LONDON FATHER AND FOUR CHILDREN BURNED TO DEATH. A fire ocourred on Monday morning at the grocery premises of Mr G. J. Wale, Fulham Palace-road, Hammersmith, and Mr Wala and his four children were burnt to death. Amy Wale, aged fourteen, was severely injured by jumping from the first-floor window, and George Wale, aged nine, was badly burned, but the mother and three other children escaped uninjured. It appears that Mr Wale went downstairs about seven o'olock to get his wife a cup of tea. bat returned in a few minuteB exclaiming, B« quick, its all over the house is on tire." He then rushed upstairs to arouse the children sleeping in the upper rooms, but by the time he had done this the fire tiad taken such a hold on the stairs that escape wns impossible, and father and children perished together. The father was last seen alive at one of the windows, across the ledgo of which he fell helpless, and was burned to death in the pretence of a number of h rror-stricken onlookers in the street, who were powerless to help him from his terrible position. The mother and the other children, who escaped without ir.jury, savad their lives by getting out of the window on to the balcony over the shop, from which they descended by means of a ladder. +

IN PARLIAMENT. MONDAY. j In the House of Commons Mr Gladstone, in J I moving his resolution giving priority to Govern- ment business said that after supply and the Appropriation Bill had been disposed of they proposed to adjourn till November for the autumn sitting. When the House met again it was their intention to deal with the Parish Councils Bill and the Employers Liability Bill, and he thought the time up to the Christmas holidays would be amply sufficient to dispose of these measures. Mr Balfour considered an autumn sitting both un- necessary and inexpedient. A long discussion, in which Mr Chamberlain, Sir W. Harcourt, and Mr John Morley took part, followed. Reference was made to the chances of the Eight Hours Bill for Miners and the Evicted Tenants Bill. The Chief Secretary said the latter bill cou'd scarcely be discussed in a Saturday sitting. It was a matter that could only be dealt with by the Government, and next year he hoped to place proposals before the House which would settle the question. An amendment moved by Mr F. W. Russell that the Saturday sittings should be limited to the sittings before the adjournment for the holidays was rejected by a majority of 40.' Finally the closure was put, and Mr Gladstone's resolution carried by a majoxi'y of 67. The House then went into Committee of Supply. In the House of Lords the Bishop of Chester moved that an address should be presented to the Queen asking her to withhold her assent to a part of the Cardiganshire intermediate education scheme, on the ground that it did great injustice, with regard to the scholarships, to the Voluntary schools affiliated to St. David's College, Lampeter. The Earl of Kimberley said the scheme was not unjust. The only difference was this-Llan- dovery, one of the schools at which scholarships might be held, was endowed Lampeter was not endowed. If Lampeter beegme an endowed school there was no reason why the matter should not be reconsidered. The House divided, and the motion was carried by 33 votes against 23. The Bishop of Chester moved a similar address against a portion of the Merionethshire scheme, which, he sa:d, introduced the undenominational system of teaching into the boarding-house. The Earl of Kimberley and the Lord Chancellor con- sidered the scheme a fair compromise. Lord Salisbury spoke strongly against it. The motion was c .rried on a division by 39 votes to 33. Lord Rosebery, replying to a question, said Lord Dufferin had returned to Paris with the most atuple instructions to protect British rights in Sia.m. TUESDAY. In the House of Lords Earl Spencer moved the second reading of the Home Rule Bill. Coercion, he said, would never cure discontent, and he was afraid the measures that had been passed for the benefit of Ireland had been introduced without due regard to the sentiments of the Irish people. Among that people there was a passion for self- government, and after his experience in adminis- tering law in Ireland on the old methods he had faith in the new policy. The financial arrange- ments in the Home Rule Bill were satisfactory, and the retention of the Irish members, he felt confident, would prove rather an advantage than otherwise. Separation under the bill would be impossible; the measure would bring content- ment, and there was little likelihood of the Pro- testants being ground under the heel of the Roman Catholic hierarchy. Uls er had nothing to fear, and he hoped to see her assisting to rule the country. It had been said that the Govern- ment were handing over Ireland to men of the worst description, but the Irish party were not murderers. He implored their lordships to pause before they rejected the measure. They had the opportunity to make a great concession freely, and he trusted they would not dash the hopes of the Irish people to the ground. The Duke of Devonshire followed, and denied that the decision of their lordships involved any great responsi- bility. The bill had emanated from the brain of one man, and had not been accepted by the majority of the people. In fact it had never been before the countiy as a distinct issue. tie characterised the bill as the outcome of impatient impulse, and urged that it should be rejected on the ground that three-fourths of it had never been debated. The Earl of Zetland, Lord Brassey, the Duke of Norfolk, and Earl Cowper also spoke. The debate was adjourned. In the House of Commons Mr John Morley said there was a feeling among the Nationalist members that the Irish Sunday Closing Bill should be left to the Irish Parliam-nt. The House went into Committee of Supply, and on the vote for the maintenance of public buildings in Ireland Mr Goschen and others rought to raise a discussion on the financial relations of the Home Rule Bill, but were ruled out of order. Several votes were agreed to. On a division, in which Radicals and Tories went into the same lobby, an amendment was carried to reduce the vote for the salaries of the House of Lords' officials. WEDNESDAY. In the House of Lords the debate on the Home Eule Bill was resumed by the Duke of Argyll, who said the measure was one effecting revolutionary changes and had never really been before the coun- try. The English people expected and demanded the rejection of the bill. He looked upon Mr Gladstone as he did upon one of the dervishes, as a pure fanatic. In lb86 the Prime Minister said he was going to deal with the Irish question in the spirit of an old Parliamentary hand, and he had fulfilled his prom se well. He knew of DO Government which had been so corrupt as the Government of Mr Gladstone. There was nothing that had not been put up to action-for votes. After giving a sketch of the history of Ireland during the past century, and prophesying evil if the Home Rule Bill passed, he said if they deser- ted the people of Ulster they had no right to de- mand their allegiance. He ridiculed -the false belief of the Premier that they must, with re- gard to Home Rule, submit to the inevitable. He had no respect for men who made things inevi- table. Nothing like this bill was inevitable and he believed they were winning in a great cam- paign. Lord Playfair said the rejection of the bill by their lordships would not end the demand of the Irish for Home Rule. Unless the franchise were taken away from the people, there would be an increasing demand that Home Rule should be conceded. The bill would bring about decentral- isation of government without disintregation. There was no desire for separation, and he did not think the minority were in much danger. The proposal of the Government was one of union, and would remove the sources of discontent and distrust. The debate was continu d by Lord Ashbourne, who said the bill trusted the Irish with everything except the till, and that the fate of the loyal Protestant minority would be worse than death. At their sitting the House of Commons went into Committee on Supply. On the vote for the Home Office there was considerable discussion, chiefly with regard to the collection of tithes in Wales and the appointment of assistant inspectors to prevent sweating in the woi kshops of our great cities. An amendment for the reduction of the vote was defeated. THURSDAY. The Home Rule debate in the House of Lords was resumed by the Eati of Sdborne. He said the measure created a new parliament, and left nothing of the Union except shreds and tatters to cloak the wrong the provisions of the bill would do. The retention of the Irish membe:s at West- minster would be a despotism and tyranny in favour of British minorities over British majori- ties. Why should they oveiturn the British Con- stitution for the sake of setting up of a parlia- ment in Dublin ? One of his objections to the bill was that it was full of provisional arrange- ments, and he asked what guarantees there were with regard to the land. They should pause be. fore voting a change in the Constitution which would make peace more uncertain and war more dangerous. The bill was a Government capitula- tion to the Nationalists, and it would be cowardice itself if their lordships did not give the elactors an opportunity of declaring their opinions upon it. Lord Rosebery, who was loudly cheered, fol- lowed in a brilliant epeech be showed how the Home Rule Bill had been treated in the House of Commons and by the Peere like a bull at a Spanish bull fight,, how the toreadors had assailed it, and how it was to be killed with Lord Salisbury as the matador. He said if any alteruttitve plan had been introduced by their opponents i, -,Lld have been I gladly welcomed, but their only object had beer I to slay the bill. Coercion had failed, and to giv j Home Rule was the best course to pursue :n I critical and complex difficulty. It was a questior of policy, and he believed it was the best policy. "The dismemberment of the Empire" was < meaningless phrase, for by giving setf-governmfc to Ireland they would obtain a fiiend instead oi making a foe. There were three courses open tc them. They could disfranchise Ireland and mak. her a Crown colony. The second was a retu, n coercion policy. The third was Home Rul, Whether th..y plastered Ire and wi'h gurisonso with gold, the end would be some foim if Horn Rule. The bill introduced hy the Premier was as experiment, but it was a just and generous ex peiiment, and they claimtd that it was not "a lea; in the dark." It was a leap t)ward- the light. -In the House of Cdrmoos Mr H. Fowler, re- plying to questions with re'-pec' to the cLoleis, said the importation of filthy and irftc'ed tags tl ihis countiy was ats-ilutely prohibited, but he baa no: prohibited the importation of what were knowi as rags of meicbardise," because fcuch a course wcttld put a s'op to several imporiant industriei; and throw a number of peoj le out of work. The Employers' Liability Bill was referred b, and ir reply to Mr T. P. O'Conuo. who drew the Hnm. Secretary s attention to the Trade Unions Con- gress resolution urging the Government to stand by the clause preventing contracting out of tht- Ac', Mr Asquith said there had never been any intention on the part of the Government to depart from the clause as it s'ood. Hit William Harcouit gave a list of the non-controversial bills that would be dealt with during the sitting, and these included the Post-Office Saving Bank and tb. Pistols Bills. Sir G. Trevelyan said the Govern- ment had prepared a Local Government Bill for Scotland, but ne could not say that, it would be introduced this sestion. The Houte then went in to Committee of Supply. FLLIDAI. In the House of Lords the Home Rule debate was resumed by the Earl of Oranbrook, who strongly condemned the bill, remarking that it proposed to give that part of Ireland which was the worstthe mastery over that pirt which was the best. The Lord Chancellor taid there was no doubt that Ireland longed for distinct national life. Tne policy of conciliation most take the direstion of Home Rule. He ridiculed the asser- tion that the Liberal party bad changed their policy in order to buy the Irish vote. Because they could find no scheme altogether free from difficulty, were they to abandon the task of doing right. The English Parliament would reap an advantage in time alone when Ireland dealt with her own affairs, and he did not think a great financial burden would be thrown on thii country, the Marquis of Salisbury said he felc some satis- faction that he was the last person who would make a speech against Home Rule in the course of the present. It was a miserable excuse for the Liberals to say that they changed their policy because the Conservatives had not been suffi- ciently prompt in enforcing the criminal law. The absurdity of the proposition with regard to the retention of the Irish members was enough to drive a man into Bedlam, and Home Rule was a policy of despair. The other side had demanded that they should reveal the Conservative policy. It was this-" Patient continuance in well-doing," and "keep on pegging away." The bill was re- jected by 419 votes to 41; majority against. 37.8. In the House of Commons Mr Brunner muvvo the adjournment of the House and cftllrd attention to the disturbances in the mining districts, urging that the Arbitration Bill should be pushed on with a view to the settlemtnt of disputes by peaceful methods. Sir William Htircourt said if there had been a reasonable prospect of proceeding with the Arbitration Bill, there was no bill tStt Gowrum-, n would have been more pleased to forwttd. Nit B. unner withdrew his moticn. The House then went ino Committee of Supply.

Yet the peculiarity about th^m is, that the people who most indulge in them are the most unconscious of the fact. '"Avoid spending moneymtnnes. of course," fays the embarrassed householder, thot is what everyone says; yptwhy repeat the advice to me?

Yet more likely than not the very next time this individual goes to market a small purchase will be made that benefits no one, and which runs away with one of tho-e pennies that must be put together before the pounda can be saved. It is a characteris ic of unthrifty people that they readily yield to the temptation to buy trifles. It is said that worker- ?

THE CHOLERA. THE OUTBREAK AT GRIMSBY. The official notice issued by Dr Bruce at Grimsby I on Monday was as follows :—" The number of cases of diarrhoea reported yesterday was considerably less, and there was no serious case. The two men in hospital are doing well. No further admissions." A death occurred in Victoria-terrace on Saturday night from cholera nostras, and a death in Earl- street on Saturday afternoon from cholera nostras. Victoria-terrace is a handsome row of large houses in Cleethorpes-road, one of the main thoroughfares of the town, and is situate close to the boundary of Now Clee and Cleethorpes. The case here was a peculiarly sad one, the victim, a young married lady, a member of an old Grimsby family. In this instance it is stated that infection may have been incurred from contact with a previous case, which also termi- nated fatally. The other death in Earl-street was that of an aged man, but the symptons of disease were decidedly of a choleraic type. Earl-street is situated at the western corner of the town, almost as far distant from Victoria-terrace as is possible within the borough boundary. The following is an embodiment of the official re- port which the local sanitary authority forwarded to the Local Government Board on Monday :—" Sep- tember2nd, 16 caset! and three deaths; September 3rd, six cases and one death. On Monday there are two oases in the shore hospital and two cases in the float- ing hospital. All are being treated and all are doing well." The report has had a more satisfactory tone about it than previous notifications have had, and the outlook assumes a more favourable aspect. The following official statement, based upon tele- graphic information regarding the cholera outbreak in England, was issued on Tuesday evening by Dr. Thorne Thorne, principal medical officer to the Local Government Board:—"Five fre^h cases of cholera or choleraic diarrhoea came under treatment in Grimsby on the 4th inst., and one patient died. Twenty-two patients in all were under treatment." A DEATH AT BELFAST. A Belfast correspondent of the Freeman's Journal reports a death there from Asiatic cholera. A coach- painter named Galloway, who was ill on Saturday, became worse on Sunday, but refused to allow a doctor to be called in. He died hulf-an-hour later. Two doctors pronounced the case one of Asiatic cholera, but a third attributed death to failure of the heart's action. In the evening the sanitary authori- ties removed and interred the body. SUSPECTED CASES IN BRADFORD. On Monday morning a fish hawker named John Wa msly died in Bradford under circumstances which point to Asiatic cholera. He was seized on Sunday morning with choleraic diarrhoea and violent cramps, and all medical aid prove unavailing. He had on Saturday obtained a consignment of mussels from Cleethorpes. one of the infected ports. These have been destroyed, together with the remainder of the wholesale consignment. The interment of the body is ordered for Wednesday by the sanitary autho- rities, and all precautions possible taken. A second suspicious death occurred on Monday morning, the victim being a small shopkeeper named Hudson.
WHY LORD ROSEBERY IS A HOME RULER. In the course of his magnificent speech in the House of Lords on the Irish Bill, Lord Rosebery said May I give two other reasons which make me a Home Ruler at this time, reasons which have been used by the Opposition as arguments against this bill? The first is a phrase that is constantly used, "The dismemberment of the Empire." A more meaningless phrase was never invented (Ministerial cheers). It is because I wish to avert a practical dismemberment of the Empire that I stand before you in support of Home Rule to-night. What I fear is that if we do not arrive at some such scheme as we propose we shall have chat practical dismemberment by having Ireland sullen, discontended, and rebellious always at our side. The other ground is that of for- eign policy. I am not at all sure that the Opposition are not right in saying that foreign Governments dis- trust the proposal for the establishment of a Home Rule Parliament in Ireland, but I put that down, with all respect to any distinguished representatives of foreign Powers that may be present, rather to that ignorance that all nations have of other nations than to any valid argument against our bill. At present to make room for English and Scotch reforms you must have a scheme of some sort. When we go out the eighty Irish members will not go out. They will temain with you. I remember what the former policy of the noble Marquiq was, "Twenty years of resolute government;" but how are you going to get your twenty years of resolute government ? You may have your Coercion Bill, you may have your u J 10 not hetiitate to shoot"; bnt your best foreign policy is to give Ireland something worth defending —(Ministerial cheers)—to give her something that no liberating country can offer, and to give her institu- tions she values. Now I come to another question. What do you propose ? Have you any scheme ? If you have a scheme which will effect the objects we desire, I venture to say it will find a friendly reoep. tion on these benches. We are only too anxious to get Ireland out of the way. We have some 25,600 or 30,000 troops in Ireland in time of peaoe. What force should we want in time of war ? I will asked one more question. If we are engaged in a European war what would be the point the enemy would first attempt to reach P It would be, of course, Ireland. In the face of the gigantic armies of the Continent not 25,000 or 30,000 or even 100,000 men would pre- vent the invasion of Ireland. To attain your twenty years of resolute government you will have to set the democracy behind you, and that. I venture to say, however you may frame your proposals, you will never have (Ministerial cheers), Is emigration any better? Emigration will greatly increase the diffi. culties with which you will have to deal. If you send out discontented instead of contented emi- grants, u your pour into America or Australia Irish peasants, torn from their homes because it was im- possible for them to live there, they would go there with burning hatred against your institutions and against your monarchy. You will raise up ten evils for one you put down. You have tried your policy already and it has failed miserably. It has reduced your British majority, and it has produced no effect upon the Irish majority in your Imperial Assembly. I don't know that you have any but three courses open. The first courae is to disfranchise Ireland and convert it into a Crown colony the second is your former policy, which is most expensive and ineffec- tual and the third is some form of Home Rule. The first is impossible, and as to the third you have not yet come to it, though it may not be long in coming (Ministerial cheers). So we go on with an equal story all through these years. You promised us that we should discharge the burthen of English logi3la- tion and Irish business by your resolute government, but found it as heavy, as obnoxious, as encumbering as it had ever been in any previous Parliament. I put aside the expense with which this policy is accompanied, the million or so spent on light rail- ways and sops to feed the Cerberus of Irish discontent which you are not able by any means to allay. But in pursuing the policy of Irish Home Rule we are guided quite as much by dread and discontent of what you propose as by any special content of what we propose curselves.
AN ACCIDENTAL SUICIDE. A shockingly tragic affair occurred at Wallhamp- ton, near Lyming'on. Henry Card, gamekeeper, was talking with the landlord of the local public- house when the conyer-sati In turnpd upon the Ardla- mont shooting mystery. Card insisted that it was possible that Mr Hambcrough's injuries were self- inflicted, and in order to demonstrate this he took up his gun, plaoed it behind his back with one hand, and reaching down tho other hand, pulled the trigger. The gun happened to be loaded, and Card blew off the t jp of hia skull.
