He does not, liowever, know much about Ireland, and recently a speech of his prpVpked from Mr. lardner, the young and'hrlljiant M.P. for Monaghan, a very etfeett've reply which left nothing of Sir Gilbert's structure standing. Mr. Lardner persisted, however Jn referring to Sir GUnert Parker aa "the right honorable gentleman"-a title reserved for Privy Councillors-until the gallant knight interjected: "I am _not righ^' honorable." One . of  the irishmen promptly rejoined; "Well, you ought to be; many a worse man is."^ Hearty^'laughter betokened general approval of the compliment, to which the recipient bowed his acknowledgments.^ Mr. Lardner proceeded to correct nlmsetf by explaining that he meant to apealt ot Sir Gilbert as ."the honorable baronet." Aga.ln the member for Gravesend had to dissent: "I am not a baronet, either"; whereupon that sanxe stnali, smooth voice from the back Iri^ bo^ih spoke encouragingly to th'i member tor Monaghan: "Try I'noble, lord^ oh- him, .and see how ho It'akoait."

The press on both sides of the Atlantic Is therefore laboring under a misapprehension in attributing importance to young William Armstrong's Socialistic utterances aa being those of "the eldest aon and heir of Lord Armstrong, chief owner of the stool works and shipbuilding yarda at Elswick." Young Armstrong, who Is an undergraduate ot Trinity College, Cambridge, haa imbibed, like so many callow youths at the universities, immature, half-baked views on social and industrial conditions, and the vary fact that he should be attacking the great Elswlck Iron and ordnance works for paying such large dividends. Instead of distributing the profits among the worklngmen, and his insistence that the works should ho ayndloallzed according to the most advanced'theories of Socialism, Is-surely sufficient proof of Ill-will towards the concern and proof that-nelther-he nor his father are any longer connected therewith. The pres'ent Lord Armstrong, owing to foolish speculations, entirely wrecked the very largo fortune which he had Inherited, ..'frqrn his grreat-unole, the first Lord Armstrong, and, aa mentioned above, three years ago was obliged to completely -sever his connection with the iron works, to sell all his household furniture, pictures, carriages and horses, etc., and to effect a composition with his long Hat;, of creditors, who Included a number of well-known London moneylenders and usurers, among them being James Wilton and Co., of Piccadilly.
