W amu NOTO*, April 19—Mr. Enioh of Tenriusaee roee to a question of personal pr v-ilege and had read an article from the New York Press, declaring that a gigantic fraud had been discovered in the Southern war claim* bill, and that Mr Thomas of Wisconsin. chairman of the committee on war claim*, had denounced the bill as one of the most infamous that bas ever been foisted upon congress. Mr. Thomas said he thought that he could prove the disloyalty of a number of claimants. Mr. Eiiioe said that the charges that he had brought the bill before the bouse sur-I ptloudly wa* false Mr Cannon submitted a disagreeing report on tb# national zo*> bill, which w-a* agreed to. and the bo:me nisi-ted upon it* amendment taxing the District of Columbia half the cont, Mr Henderson of Illinois reported the river and harbor bill and it wa* referred to the co- mittee of the wh.de. The huns# then went into committee of the whole on the private calendar The court of claims bill was then cal WI up, the pending motion bel' g to recommit the bill with recommendations that it be referred to ths committee on rule* for a rejmrt a* to its status. This wa* hat. Mr Thomas off. red a resolution to recommit the bill with in*truet ions to the committee on war claim* to investigate tbs loyalty of the claimant#. This and another proposition to have the commute# report it back within two week# were finally agreed to and the resolution was retorted to the house and adopted Adjournal MU. PARNELL’S OPINION Of THE GOVERNMENT'S MEASURE. Aa laureating Interview With *■ latL Mal* Friend arf th* Liberal leader — Me (•Melders the Bill Not Only Pet atelene Bot Ltd iralea#- - A Flan U» Boh the Tenant—-Oilier Foreign New#. London, April 19.—In an inter view with a rep re*** 11 ta ti vc of the United Prs*#, an intl- j , mate friend *»f Mr. Charles Stewart Parnell I gav# tLat gentleman’* reason* fsr oopeang Hr. Ralf *ir > land pm use bill. He said ; that Mr. Purnell considered it a bud bill from aln Diet every point of view. Not only bad, i but to a Isrge extent ridiculous. C«*nsider-iag the matter from the }*oiut of view of the I Iritb tenant, it may V# said at one* that the prop eat is one to rob the tenant who is fool- ' mb enough L» buy up lux own property in bit I holding. This object in altsuned rn the first pl*.-*• by taking into account in calculating the ain* aint of par. b i o Money a bi< b ought to be advance*! in ea»-h • a-e the whole valu* of th* bol ling—th it i* Ut say the tenant*' Inter*-1 ae well a* that of the landlord—sum! tbs rank injustice of this provision will readily ii# seen when it is rwtnemtiered that by the ado mo'>n» not *nly af every royal eoinmii'ooti that has ever inquired into ths qii—t on, biit"e\en mf minister* thenae-lves, kb* interest of the tenant now in many ease* exceeds that of the landlord himself A second dev me for attaining th* object in t view, viz. th* emifls<?ati<»Q of t il# tenant's improvements and th* puffing of the landlord'* j interest, u that of taking n* account of the ‘ fact that rent contioties to t<* a*ees#e«i, aud 1 ai long a* th«- Healy cla t** remain* un-i amen! WI will con ti ii ne to b* ave-*e»l on tbs * tenant's impr* venn-nt* It is now easy to understand w hy it is that every attempt ma<ie by the Irish parti mjiarhameut during th* last few years to amend th* Healy clause au l Gills to carry out the original intention of the framers of th* act of 1KS1, has been obstinately resid'd year after year by the present government With the Healy clause amended, sud rent ceasing on tenants’ im- j pr >vene-uts. no device that could lie invented would hav« availed to give fictitious valu* to Imb landlord prosperity. YVith th* Healy clause unamended and th# land court* con- | tinning to *- •-<* rent on the tenant’* im- J pro vet ne! tf.-, it wa* easy to propose • measure ! that w>u! I have be ne id ted unduly the Irish land Ion I wilt, ut -■'♦..ting, at lint Right at least, to outrage Hie principle* of judice. If there wer* rn thing els** than tho attempt to inflate th - val c- of the landlord’s interest at the ex|ien>e of ti** right* of the tenants to stimulate the Ii ii party to oppose the bill, cauie enough would be found to bring that result Tile representatives of th# Irish tenants in the hon of c< it: mo - will never, if they can possibly h‘ !p .t. all-iw any lan»l pur<-ha*# btl] i to jms* w lik n is Ui-* I on so iniquitous an at- j tempt at robbery, From the point of view of sor'ial order it is not only not a mea«nrs for settling the land question ami removing the calm** of agrarian crime and agitation, but also a mensure calculate I to have directly ! the opposite effect. If the bill pas—s there will lie thee'* class# of pesAiit boldeixi in j Ireland, ti*# tenant owning hi* land as a purchaser under the Ashbourne act, whom we may call the Ai-hboums tenant; th*# tenant owning bi* land under the Balfour act. whom ; we may call the Balfour tenant, r.nd tit# t#*n-ant L Kitriy t x land at a rent, either judicial or non-jud:< i»l Thes** latter two classes of tenants will be pla^i in an unfavorable i p-siti'jn u# cor IJ«red with tile first men- i tioaed The A hi*ourne tenant will have his land at a reduction of his present rent, of roughly speaking, 49 per cent., where#* the Buhrnir tenant umler Mr. Balfour^ peculiar arrangement wdl for the firM five years hold hi- land at a reductioB of xleHit ST. percent , and the ©rd nary tenant adj i»c paving a retd which wid be either the old ric» rent, unndu aal or redmed merely to tlie level of til* rent* fixed by the land commission. The meaning of ail this is that everything will be unsettUd; that agitation w ill become not ne-relv desirable, but neoes- i •ary, for it is mntrary to reason to suppose tlust one man on one -ide of the road can hold at an annual <4 arg* of T'd a year and ; two men «*ii the other sid* of the road j»ay tw ice that sum for the *ame quantity of land I without i ii'i^Mg the two latter to ri*e in revolt in whatever way may lie open to them j against a system by which they in contrast with th ut neigh I* r- Sutter so severely. The land question would lie re-opened | f r* sh and the ult a that things could tie mendel in time by tile gradual extincti n of the purchase system is jierfectly illusory. No man will!** able to look so phik<*o}ihically on the situation a* to h*> Aitisfied with the pnvspect that in the course of time he will be a# f IVO rabic situated a* hi* neighbor, e<pcci-sllr slim *h it he wan t I* not prrwpective I .ut immediately relieved. Til* d:->- ntented tenant will probably also refle**t * *t his more fortunate net; hi kit owes the s t i.ority of his p>siti«in to agitation, if not to violence, aud it would not I** surprising if he t*ok it into b s head that the -h r» -t way to way to the liettering of hi* ]k it on would lie to resort to agitation and viol »n<*e afresh. Mr. Balfour, iii short, bv his bill, which provide* tails for lh* gradual transfer of the property of the landlord* to the tenant*, puts a direct premium not only upon agitation but also up*n violence, and i# tfcu* destructive, and not conservative, of social order. Accordingly, tip last slate of Ireland will be worse than th" first. The state at things wInch will he brought about by this bill if it should pass—an unlikely event, surely, if the British people have not bwt the;r *em-e»—will Ie as regards the Iri-h tax payer an entire novelty, and may well fill him with astonishment and alarm. For the first terne it i* proposed that not the iud iv idual tenant, nor lh* state, but the rate plyer of Ireland shall be reepouRibi# for the failure on the )>art of the tenant* to nay th* instalments of I a us which may lie advanced to them for th* purchase of their holdings. Among the guarsutec# which are provided for the repayment of the advances to the landlords is, for instance, that of til* county rates, struck I y the grand juries ♦-]** lally for the purpose. In other words, should any number of tenant* in any particular district of the county fail to pay the instalment* due on their loans, the result will he that th* grand jury will levy a late calculated to product the amount of the deficiency. Not only tenants of agricultural holdings, fait also tenants of tow n hnuw vt ill be mad* to fear th* burden, and the nuxt ridiculous feature of the whole arrangement is that chief among p rson# who will fie thus assessed will l#» the defaulters themselves. Again amongst the guarantees especially provided for repayment of advances for the congested districts H the balance of the Irish church surplus lutid It is doubtful in tho first place whether this supposed surplus exist# at all. But even if it doe* exist it is a security of the most doubtful character. The Iri*h church surplus consist * of pay-m**nt of nth* rent charged bv th* landlords. When the efmrrh at t waa pished the land-lorda were given an opportunity of redeeming th* tnh* iv ut charge within a certain Bumi«-r of rears In se far a# that ova o: tumtv ha# been availed af th* church f a adar# of ootirs* a substantial reality, for they hav* tak*n the shape of actual caah in hand Bat in so far a# the opfwvrtunity referred to has iieou let #lip by—and the cae-s in which tht* has cexurred ar* very numerous th* ■arpliw depends upon the regularity <*f the payments by the Landlord* and th**ir xueoes ■ors. and in this statement of fact# lies th* proof of tbs assertion that if agitation Rh»>uld aver revive, and if the landlords should be largely replaced by tenants, the church surplus may sudden!yceaw to exist. And should this ever happen, the further result will La that th* Irish tax payer w ill agaiu bs callid to the rescue, for it is provided that in the event of the church surplus fading the lot* may bs mads good by w ithholding the contribution now given from the iinr^rialex rh'-quer for education and poor relief, which would mean in it# turn the inqtcsition of further local taxation to li e extent et lh* withholding of these imperial grant# Th* Irish t*x|i*yer may well fe*-l that hv ha# a new mtere-t in til* In ii land quo ti m should these arraugemont# ever come to Ie actual fact*. Nor would it be surprising if this arrangement Leing thrust dom hi* throat, h* should seize th# first opportunity precented to hun of repudiating the obligate* involved, and thus upsetting all th* ministerial calculation* a# to th* character of what Mr. Bailout call* cash guarantee* The fourth point of view from which tin* measure may ta* regarded—that of the British taxjmyer-— is of course the most im po rte t to the English public The question I* whether under thus scheme the British taxi wiver i* mad* liable for til*- millions that are to be advanced for the purchase of Irish land aud if #«». whether he is made liabl* tuider cote ditions likely to make hi# liability a disagreeable reality. Mr. Balfour pretends that he i* under ne j rt-al liahiiay by viru** of tins scheme. But i hi# prof. ss a wi# on this punt are th* pcrfec j ti on of aud icitv. Th** landlords are. according to this bill, to be paid in British nutria) bonds lien ring 2*4 ja-r cent. int**ri*Rt. Who cannot see. in face of this proposal, that th# reel guaraub-e for the a .Vance* that w ill be made us th** money ef tie- British taxpayer. , Before the British taxpayer is called a pm to pay, th* Irish peasant purchaser anil the; Irish rate j>ayer must, of o*»ur#c. fail to pay, j and it is pistole that if the Irish que-lion emiKUsted only of the land diffteuhj th<*se ' guarantee!-# might be equal to the occasion But just here i* th* rub. The Irish question consists of more than the land duli -ulty. It involves also th* question of satisfying th* national nentiment of Irel.m I by conceding ; to that country a subordinate pariiamcul J and an *x*cutive for the management of Irish affairs. Now let the I nioni-t .as-uinp tion be granted; namely that Ireland is not to have self-government in local affairs. Considering the history not only of Ireland but also of all nationalities that have ever h.*en similarly circumstance*!, what is more natural than that the I ish tenant* and th* Irish rate layers should take it into th* ir heads, even if they were able to f'av. that it w-ould be a good thing to strike, in order to attain their pditirai ends, Agaiust what they i would regard a* an alien tax? It would la altogether the most convenient and the safest way of rising iii insurrection they have ever bad pr»-M*iit*sl to them, for they have ne er J yet had a direct im;ienal tax aff*-’mg the country at large against which to st nu*-. Even if a proportion of th -rn went only the j length of refusing to pay till the Iwyonet* ; •nil rifles of the police and the soldiers ap peared ai their doorst*‘|»> to eof or a the payment of the tax, the obvious result would la* th* t-*tal disorganization of Iii>h so. u-ty, the doubling or trebling of the military force j stationed in Ireland, a1 d a vast con-*--pi ut increase in the coat of imperial expenditure iii that country, ut addition to th# probable, or rather osrtam, loss of much of tho money sought to be recovered. The long and short of tin* matter is that if uooney is to be lent to Ireland for the purpose of buying out the Irish landlords, aud if the British taxpayer is to be safe, th*- only real guarantee is that r*f an Iri-ii {>arliamcnt, goveming the Irish p-opl* with their eon-s nt, and thus we come by still another road i to the c« awl use >n that Mr Gladstone’# scheme ; of la>*i is me «>uiy ont* mat prouii-cs safety to Great Britain a# well as pon e to Irelanil SITUATION WTT6BUBG WEEKLY TK A DK KKV1KVV.
