London january 14.�? special Cable copyright by James Gordon Bennett a the ground i rapidly Clearing for the new session people will not like what they see Prospect opens. Here is Point first now made very Clear lord Salisbury does not intend to resign any Issue but. That Ireland. That seer is to be Plain enough from the last the Liverpool series speeches. Ordinarily a government May be Defeated some outside question As Gladstone was in 1885 the budget. He resigned. But the country must understand Turat no Side blow will upset the present government. I that is a pretty bad Lookout for people who Are laying wires to trip it up for instance the crofters the Welsh Church local government and a dozen other dangerous subjects. The government May be Defeated any these and yet it will stick fast. Quot what will . Gladstone say to that much in fact he May make the country rip. With denunciations what telegraphed for arriving yesterday to lie can desc Rtse As lord Salisbury a arbitrary and unconstitutional course and there May be a tremendous hubbub but it is quite Clear that Salisbury would not have taken a Resolution like this without consulting with Hartington and thus the whole unionist party must be agreed to accept no defeat As involving the Fate the ministry unless it arrives the Irish question. How it can arrive that with majority Over one Hundred pledged to support the main lines the ministerial Irish policy it is very hard to see. This startling ultimatum must affect the whole course the session from beginning to end. What will be the use planning intricate schemes for catching the government unawares if it will not go when it is beaten course no ministry could stand Long against a succession defeats but from what Quarter blow after blow is to fall is not visible to men who study minutely every Inch the ground. The second Point brought into Light is equally important Only it concerns the conservative party exclusively. They Are told they must make up. Their minds to Swallow More than will be agreeable to them. You can not say a lord Salisbury have your cake and eat it too. Rou hold Power by Liberal votes you must pass Liberal Many conservatives will naturally say a a what is the Good having a conservative government in office if we must take any dose our opponents choose to mix for is so that the Premier has nothing to the conservative party has a master and must obey him. The master is the Liberal unionist. So Here we Jive one the great parties split into fragments and the other Lect by one these fragments. The Irish question dissolves everything like a powerful acid. I very much doubt whether anybody really admires the present position affairs but nobody has Power to alter it Ireland May not govern itself but is she not governing English parties and practically dictating the course All British legislation it looks very much like it. Wait till the Radical Blue Pill is stuffed into the Mouth your Good old fashioned tory there will be wry faces seen and Strong language heard in spite the soothing syrup which Salisbury has so considerately administered beforehand.
