THE LOIW:) AM) THE TKAXCIIISE BILL. LETTEliS KUOM THK Dl'KE OK AIIUYLL ANI) SIR RICLIARD CROSS. The Puke of Argyll having been invited by a political association at Pontypridd to explain tho attitude of the Huue of Lords, repUe" that he h" had many converMtiQII9 with Conservative Peers, and is certain they do Det dCSjt'9 to contet tho concoion of house. hold suffrage to counties, but they fear un unfair ^distribution Hill. If reassured on thi" matter he believes their opposi- tion would cease. He hopes means may be found to give confidence to all parties on re- distribution principles. The Duko Uoes not llilnk this demand unreasonable, and considers it unjust, to accuse tho Conservatives of a desire to defeat the Franchise Bill.Si, Richard Cross, MP, writes on th.> same occasion that there are a large number who do not possess the fran- chige who, from intelligence and education, aro entitled to have it. Strictly speaking, the Bill is still before the House of Lords, and if the Uovcrnment, instead of proroguing Parlia- ment, simply adjourned its sitting till tho autumn, and then brought in the Redistribution Bill in the House of Coiiii tons, both Bills might become law. If the Franchise Bill were passed alone wo should be in danger of remitting redis- tribution to a Parliament elected by a chance constituency. Lord Salisbury, acknowledging a resolu'inn passed at n. meeting of the Dublin Citv end County Conservative Working Men's Club, says 1 am very glad to learn the opinions of the Conservative working men of Dublin, and to know that they appreciate tavmirablv the motives which have guided tho Houo of Lords in dealing with the question of reform. Dublin i. deeplv interested in the just distribution of political p >wei." A special nketin of the Working Men's (Ion. mouth) Conservative Club was held on Mondav evening. Mr. T. R Hymn presided. It was pro- posed and seconded, '• That this meeting emphati- cally declares tho assertion of unscrupulous Radicals that tho House of Lords is opposed to the eulranchisoment of tho county householders to be an impudent fabrication. It tenders its hearty support to the House of Lords for cndeavouring to complete the measure of reform now proposed, by distributing political power in QccorJance with the just claims of all classes of the electorate, and considers that the opinion of tho country should lie taken on the complete scheme." A second reso- lution declared that the GOvernment hatl lost tha confidence of the couutry, and thev wero therefore called upon to resign. A further meeting is to be called for Friday.
