Pfcrnell's supporters out of Parliament, and his nominee for the present. Tipperary vacancy, was rejected by the representatives of the constituency, Mr Patrick Ryan being chosen. For two years Mr Parnell's power to nominate members in most of the Irish constituencies has been undisputed. He has usually exercised the power with conspi- cuous care and moderation, being most de- ferential to the wishes of the constituencies but there was evidently an opinion at the Tipperary Convention that he had acted in- discreetly in this case. We do not think the public are likely to underate the seriousness of supposed dyna- mite explosions. We therefore direct atten- tion to the fact that the explosion at Gower- street was not a severe one, and the damage done was slight. It is easy to reach the con- clusion that all explosions now-a-days are caused by dynamite, and that Fenians have a monopoly of dynamite. Let us, therefore, point out that there is not a tittle of evidence on either of these points in the case of the Gower-street explosion. Before dynamite and the dynamitards arose to distract the public mind, it was re- cognised as possible that such things as steam, gas, and gunpowder might cause ex- I plosions. Dynamite, however, has robbed these of their old vocation and it is impos- .5^12 "2^ Wthin^ t(J expioJe r the whole credit of the business being laid to the charge of dynamite and Fenianism. We suppose that the origin of this latest explo- sion is discoverable, but at the- present time there is no official report upon the subject, and there has been more than one gas explo- sion on the Underground Railway. j The Newcastle-on-Tyne people have given I up the idea of extending the boundaries of the city. It has been found that the outlying districts proposed to be included were by no means desirous of coming into the city. The I canny folk" of Newcastle, however, have decided that though they cannot enlarge the boundaries, they will press for an increase in the representation of the city from two to ¡ three members. r
