"ERROR OF JUDG- | MENT." f ————— LORD MURRAY'S APOLOGY. "TRANSACTION OPEN TO CRITICISM." In the House of Lords on Tuesday, ici-d Murray of Elibank anticipated Lord Ampt- bill's motion for a Committee to inquire into the ex-Chief Whip's share in the Maroons pcandai by offering a personal explanation. In this statement Lord Murray said, in øt- fect, that if he had known at the time what he knows now he would have had nothing to do with American Marconis, not only be- cause he has lost money by them, but be cause the transaction was open to criticism, a fact he now realised and ought to have recognised at the time. It was, he said, an error of judgment Bad not of intention, and that plea related not only to his personal transaction in the shares, but to his investment of the party funds- With regard to the latter, be stated he had made good the loss to the party at verv CONSIDERABLE PECUNIARY EXPENSE to himself. He finally asked the House of Xiords to grant him the same deliverance which the House of Commons ha.d granted his colleagues by repudiating the suggestion of dishonourable motives. The Marquess of Lansdowne urged the House to suispend its judgment until it had had time to consider the full effect of Lord Jiarray's confession. of Ctoewe raised no objection to this course, though hinting that the explanation of Lord Murray ought to be accepted as closing the incident. • Lard AmpthiM, however, was not satis- lied; and only consented to postpone his motion for an inquiry until Thursday. He regarded it more essential, after Lord Mur- ray's statement than it was before, that the troth should be got at by evidence t-aken on oath and cross-examination, and de- dared that as the matter stood now it was REPROACH TO THE GOVERNMENT and a dishonour to Parliament. In the end the further discussion of the eoandal was postponed.
