While complimenting the principle oi Mr Parnell's plan it was not clear in its details He sympathised with the object of his scheme but it required explanation Mr Balfour's bill was lepletevvith dubious points, hiding the character of the measure Some of his proposals were so objection- able as to justify their objection A bill oi this kind, he said, ought to be confined to landlords already in possession and should not encourage landlords to become buyers In order to take advantage of theenoiiuous boom offered The provision respecting two years of arrears also required justiflca tlon, which he thought would be difficult to find He continued his objections at considerable length and regarding what he designated as constitutional objections he said that any one of them should preclude the second reading of the bill It was obvious, he argued, that Ireland was op- posed to the measure, seeing that flve- eighfhs of the Irish members were strong In opposition to It The Debtor Some An the government going to make Ireland a debtor it waa important that they should consider what was the attitude 9: the persons they were about to subject to debt If they declined to recognise the obligation It was a new wrong inflicted. The government would not impose a lar burden upon Scotland in defiance of the objecttonB of the Scottish members He also objected to the use of British credit It Would Farther Strain the Situation.

Mr Gosohnn followed Mr Gladstone in a long argument He agreed with Mr Glad rt-one and Mr Parnell in a desire to retain landlords in Ireland, but the bill did not necessarily lead to expropriation He ap- pealed to the house not to allow politlca uLiintona to warp the judgment of members the bill. Mr T w Rnnsell (Irish Unionint) ap- proved the bill in all respects The id" o repudiation, he said, was a mere ''bogy.' i'ne Unionists had only objected to 1am purchased its being part of the scheme for icparation Mr Paruell's alternative, hi thought, might be a valuable adjunct ii where landlords and tenants were qn willing to deal Mr. Dillon Spcakt.
