tho sottlornonl of the land question tyr Gladstone liitlnuited whllo ho would re new his attempt to suttlo the matter by 1m purlal legislation on tho linos of the Land Purchase bill of 1886 ho would not under take to put uny prossiiro upon his own side Jn other words that the Irish Luglsiaturo was not to bo given tho power of solving tho agrarian difficulties With regard to tho oontrol of tho Irish constatlulary 1t was stated by Gladstone that In vtow of tho necessity of conciliating English public opinion It would bo nooos snry to loavo thtw force to tho appointment of its ottlceiH undor tho Imperial authority for an Indoilnlto period while the funds for Its maintenance would bo oompulsorlly pro vided out of tht Irish iovomiu A period of ton or twolvo years was suggested as the limit of timo during which tho appointment of judges and resident magistrals should be rotanod In tho hands of tho imperial authorities Cussing to his own expressions on those points which tarnell says represent his views then and now hu says with regard to the retention of Irish members ho holds that with tho concussion of full powers to an Irish Legislature to those on joyed by a State of tho American Union tha number and position of tho members so re lumed would bocomo a question oi1 imperial concern and not of pressing or inunortiuto importance for tho Interests of Ireland hut tho

Introduction of the land purchase bill by rhe Government at the commenoo of the last session Morloy conferred with him and having a dosiro to avoid tho absence of any policy on tho part of tho Liberals Parneil strongly advised Morloy against any direct challenge of the prin ciple of Stntoaided hind purchase and that ive should direct our etVorts on the second reading to an association of tho principle of locai cmtrol In this Morloy agreed with but was at the same time hampered by the oxtremo section of his party led by Laboiiehoro and in a interview Itnpressed upon Farnoll the necessity of meeting the second reading of bill with i direct negative and asked take the motion I auned upon condition tint I WAS not to nt nuk of Hio hut to con tine niysilf to n of details I think

this matter only bfciiusc within the last few days a strong argument for his expulsion has been pro senUd Unless the Liberals come Into powor tho next election tho plan of campaign tenants will suffer He Iwsshown that tho Liberals proposed to do nothing for them by direct action and Is entitled to iisk that tho oxlstonco of these tenants whom ho has supported in every way Hi the past and will

been exploded in anger and Parnoll turns evidence against his follow conspirators to save his own po litical life1 Tho manifesto has rendered tho prospects for homo rulo worse than at any time since 1885 Tho Rows says This is the last fatal disserviee which many if not all of his incomparable Tho JVns nppoals to tho Irish clergy and poople not to allow Parnoll to drag down tho home rulo cause In his own fall by belief in serious misapprehensions of their English friends Tho Chronicle says Parnolls most powor In their power to continue In the Irish Parliamentary party that confidence as a body they felt jusbilied in plac ing in it in tho past In conclusion tho uichbishop says he dues not feel convinced that wo are yet in a position to form a final judgment on tho ease out of which the pres unhappy crisis has arisen At all event It is a matter that must be decided one way or tliu other before days RIVERS OF BLOOD the U imilar Vostyrday just hoforo the commencement of his session Parnell

611 uo account do part from it I considered Workss proposal that wo should alkm to bo absorbed into KngllshuoH one based upon nn of our position In conclusion Mortey dllrtiotod hiin to s ft rovolation of abject paralysis Tho manifesto clearly shows that Parnoll is not a person with whom any statesman can venture to hold confidential relations Irish ingratitiuUv in politics is proverbial but was never boforo avowed with such cold calculating cynicism ThtsSfawJemlsays tho manifesto is highly damaging to tho credit of Gladstone and Morley as a straightforward statesmen No English politician will ever trust Parneil again but ho has chosen tho right lino to win hack tho fanatical regard of1 Irishmen Tho Times says tho manifesto shivers for ever tho supposition that Paniell can over again bo treated a trustworthy friend or an honorable foe It is probably tho most shameless document seen since the days of tho revolution The thinks however that It will probably effect its purpose in Ireland and refers to tho severity of the blow inflicted on Gladstones impracticable schomos In case tho Irish Nationalist members it the meeting Monday favor Parneil a move ment will immediately bo startod among tho Liberals to give English reforms prefer ence pvor home rule and a meeting toad vocnte reverting to tho programme of 1885 Will bo summoned Sir Vernon Haroourt U Is believed will

counsel tho case being undefended exactly as in the OShea suit The jtiry brought In a verdict adjudging the respondent guilty of adultery and granting tho petition for divorce The deposition of Hannah Moore was to tho ertect that she was In the service of Lady Oonnemara in 1SSO and that sho wont with her and the Governor of Madras to In dia in In 1887 while thuy were at Madras Lord Connomara committed the oflenso and subsequently repeated it She thon told Dr Briggs who was a medical officer on Lord Oonnemaras stall7 Thus ends what at one timo promised to be the sensational aristocratic divorce case of tlio year In England Tho trial came on however at a fortunate tiruo for Lord Con nemara and he evidently took a lesson from tho recent conduct of Mr Parneil to save himself from unnecessary exposure but there wore no extenuating circumstances whatever in Connomaras case His non appearance was an admission of guilt that could not be condoned either by his wife or the groat government which he represented Ilisfall ho brought upon himself and the probability is that ho will retire into pri vate life forever unhonorcd and unsung No nation laments his going no cause will suiror because of his rotiromont and he will henceforth bury his past and his futairo iu hidden obscurity as an English country squire ind spend his life in getting rents from his tenants and sotting

Dispatch Francisco CfirpHAClc a long timo past the Canadian Pacific Hail way has boon endeavoring to discover a practi cable project for getting into New York City and its officials have now under con sideration two such schemes both of which are likely to be adopted The lirst one is to run a road across New York State with a starting point on the St Lawrence either opposite Brockville or a point between that town and Montreal Along tho west side of tho Hudson river is tho West Shore Road but it is learned that the Canadian Pacific can secure a new and independent route down tho The proposed railway is to bo located sotoe fifteen miles west of the West Shore It is stated that the construc tion would be easy and that the new exten sion would provide not only a splendid through line for the Canadian Pacific to New York but also supply an important section of Now York State with much desired rail way accommodations The second scheme the one which is said to have taken President Van Horn and As sistant President Shaughnessy to Buffalo yesterday and the one which probably will be first realized is an allAmerican route via Buffalo Winnipeg It is generally believed that Canadian Pacific trains will in the near future be running from Buffalo east and U P RETRENCHMENTS B n Nov Special to Miss Leclerc a very rrotty girl about 20 years old was arrested this afternoon by Detective
