No one of these proposals had appeared to tho governmeut to bo so com- pared and justified by its merits or the weight of public opinion in its favor as to warrant them in including it iu the hill.

Ho then on t-o speak OQ how much gained by to jiituin and how much Great Britain would lose to Ireland by the flow from ouo to the other. Continuing Mr. Gladstone naturally has hten said in E-gland and Scotland that we for r. great many years past been struggling to pass good laws for Ireland. We bnvc sacrificed our neglected our interests and paid our money and we have done all this in an en- deavur to give Ireland good laws. That is quite true with regard to the ycuerai coursw of legislation since 13-19. Many ot those laws buvp. been passed under an influence which I can hardly describe ns the influ- ence of ftur. regard to the history of the land question no man coold know that until be Lad followed it from year to year beginning with the Devou commis- ilia appaiulmoufc oi' iu my did the highest honor to the memory of Sir liobert Peel a-id then to examine the mode iu which the whole labors of that commission had been frrwir.'ifccd by tho dominion of selfish interest. from the ParnelHte He did not deny the good in- tentions the JJritiah Parliament to pfna good Jaws for but in order fco work oufc the purposes of government there was something1 more in this world occa- siuually required than the parsing of good laws. II way sometimes necessary not only that yooil laws nlionM bo passed bnt that thoy should be passed by tbe proper persons. The puss- ing oi' uinuy good laws was not enough in cases wbero the strong instinct of the peo- marks ol' situation and nofc only that theso law.s should he good hub that thfy should proceed from cocgeuial ivnd native sources and that besides good laws tbey should be tbeir own laws. from the Irish times I have doubted whether this necessity has been fully developed and especially to Ireland. If doubts cmild have been entcrlaioed before the last general election they cannot now be entertained. Tbe principle he hud laid down be was lying down for Ireland ex- ceptionally. It way very principle upon which within his recollection and to the immense advantage of the country Parlia- ment hud not only altered but hail revolutionized our of meut. When ho held office at the Colonial office Olty years ago the colonies were gov- erned from Downing street. Tbe result waa that the home government was always in conflict with these countries which bad legislative rwsemblics. They had continual shocks bnt all that had been changed. Tbe .British Parliament had lawn for the colonies but the colouiod don'i- want your good lawn. We want our own good Parliament admitted the rea- sonableness of tho principle. It had now tin me homo lo us from ncross i.hci the House had now to consider wbethur il- was applicable to the case of Ireland. They now stood face to lace with what was termed Irish venting itscll in a demand Ior general self-government in in imperial affairs. con- Mr. hold is there issnch n thing as local which in itself is not bad but The is full the Scotchman is full of local the Scotch nationality is as strong ni it ever and if the need were to arise T believe il would ready lo assort itself us ifc in tbo days of Jian- uochburti. cheers K I have read Irish miafortuueand calamity have wedded bcr sons to her soil with an embrace yet closer than is known else- and the Irishman is still more pro- foundly Irish. But it dees uot follow thai because his local putiiotistn ia strong thai- he should be incnpiible of an imperial patriotism. There fire two modes of ihe subjtjct whleh have been ftrpueU. One iy to present whr.t we now recommend us tind tlio other is to it nsn. choice of mul us the lessor among the varied evils with which as possibili- ties we are confronted. 1 Jiftvo the miiUcr ns if it had been a choice of I have I'cecK'imecl as facts and us entitled to fittentuw jealousies which I myself do not share or T have ariruci'i it on ihaturouutl us theonly on which it can be rct'oniintndcd not only to a mixed auditory but to the public mind or to the country that. give minute invustjgalion tu nil portions of this complicated I do lot know whether it may appear too but in than all upon the and sonorous sentiment of the two British looking forward I ask the believing that no irivial jaotive could have driven us to in tho work we have which we believe will restore Parliament to its free and unimpeded course. I ask them to stay the waste of public treasure under the present system of government and. ad ministration in which is not waste a waste which demoralizes while it exhausts. I ask them to show to Europe and America that can i'ace the political problems which America had to face twenty vears ago atid which many countries in Europe have been called upon to face and have -act feared to deal with- I that we shall practice as we have often preached and WAI in our case WP. should be rirm and fear- less in applying the doctrines we hare oft inculcated in others the concession of local self-government is not tlie way to sap and but to strengthen and consolidate unity. I ask that we should learn rely lesson mere written on those belter written on the heart and mind of man. I ask that we should apply to Ireland thu happy experience we have trained in England and Scotland where a course of gen- erations has now taught as a a but aa a matter of practice and the best and foundation we can find to build on is a foundation afforded by the affections and convictions and will ot man'and that it is thus by the decree of the Almighty far more than by any other method we may entitled to .se- cure at once the social tho power and the permaueuce of the empire.'' Mr. Gladstone resumed Iiis seat amidst a burst of cheers which lasted manv minutes. Mr. Parnell favored the main points of the bill fis a satisfactory settlement of the long standing dispute between the two countries. Tbe was imperfect and needed revision. i TilE BODIES RECOVERED.
