GLADSTONE’S MOTION DEFEATED
BY A VOTE OF 272 TO 194.
The Majority Larger than the Con
servatives Counted On— Hartington
Denies that He Has Deserted the
Government on Account of the
Manifesto—Drift of the Debate.
London, Aug. 26. —In an interview with
a representative of the press, to-day, Mr.
Gladstone, in reply to a question as to
whether he expected to beat the government
to-night, said: “No. We can’t expect to
do that, but the fact that a year ago the
government majority was 110, while now
the most sanguine Conservatives only an
ticipate a majority of sixty on proclaiming
the league, shows what a tremendous change
bus come over the feelings of the country.
The chance is coming more rapidly than
many people imagine, and, in fact, quite

which especially and earnestly requested
the attendance of all its supporters at the

THE DEBATE RESUMED.
In the House of Commons to-day Sir
George O. Trevelyan, one of the late Glad
stor.ite i ecruirs, resumed the debate on Mr.
Gladstone’s motion for an address to the
Queen pl aying for nullification of the gov
- rnnient’s proclaiming of the Irish National
League. lie said the late government did
not ask the House of Conunons to pass their
Irish crimes bill on hearsay, but that they
based their demands on parliamentary re
turns of grave outrages. There had been
committed 7,788 outrages during
the previous year and 26 agra
rian and political murders during the
first half of the year. Sir George con
tended that the House should have tabu
lated statistics of crime in Ireland, and that
to mention one crime here and another
crime there was not sufficient to justify
such action as the government were now
taking against the whole Irish people. He
denied that the general operations of the
Irish National league increased crime in
Ireland or led to the general non-payment
of rent. The league existed everywhere in
Ireland, and everywhere agrarian crime
RESTS WITH THE LANDLORDS.
Where landlords in Ireland made reduc
tions like thosr< made by landlords in Great
.Britain they got their rants as easily as the
English landlords. When thespeake> - went
to Ireland as Chief Secretary, under the
late government, it was with a resolution
to wage war against crime, and against that
only, and he maintained that policy on the
whole. “Let the House understand,” ho
continued, “that if the proclamation of the
leaguo is sanctioned, every Irish
man belonging to the league who
will not leave it at the command of
the government wil he liable to be punished
as a common criminal and that liability
will not depend on any Judicial proceeding
worthy or the name." In conclusion, he
complained that the statements made by
Mr. Balfour. Chief Secretary for Ireland,
and only given out last night, left no time
for the examination of their character. Mr.
Balfi >ur had presented a series of alleged
facts in justification of the government’s
action. These' allegations the House should
have a chance to corroborate or refute be
tora coming to a decision.
TERRORS OF THE LEAGUE
Sir R. E. Webster, Attorney General,
held that the reason why there were not
more convictions of crime in Ireland was
fimplv because of the terror of the league.
Hi- reminded the House that Earl Spencer s
government hail repeatedly proclaimed land
league meetings, and that Secretary Trevel
yan had supported these proclamations on
the ground that the objects of the land
league were to put down landlor dism and to
effect separation between Ireland and Eng
The objects of the existing league, said
the speaker, were the same. Its aims had
not been changed. Abundant evidence had
already been adduced as to the evil work
ilics of the league. The government would
now trv the experiment whether the sup
pression of league meetings would not
lessen intimidation. [Cheers! They wore
told this would l>e the death-struggle. Well,
either the league or the government would
go down. [Cheering.! He did not fear
for the result. The government would be
supported by the consciousness that they
had done their duty.
ONE OF THE LEAGUE'S FATHER.
Mr. Harrington (Nationalist) said that as
one largely responsible for the league he de
sired to reply to tho calumnies that had
be"n hurled at its character. Ho rend letters
from branches of the league condemning
practices which the government, declared
the league promoted. The league repudi
ated rwry form of outrage. The league
would go on doing what it bad done in spite
of proclamations, which hail no terrors for
the Irish people. [Cheers.]
Mr. Macartney declared that a lurge nia
jorityof the people were heartily sick of the
league’s policy. He said that the proclama
tion uas necessary because tho league would
never attain its primary objects by consti
William Redmond accused the Ornage
Society of woisie intimidation than was ever
charged to tho league, which was a genuine
national association. Under certain cir
cumstance , ho said, boycotting was justifia
ble mid necessary. LChecrs from the minis
LORD HAHTINGTON’S RAP.
Lord Hartington said he did not think
the speech of Mr. Redmond would influence
Jhe llouia- iii favor of the constitutional and
legitimate character of tho league. Ho
doubted whether, if Sir George 0. Trevel
yans views upon the crimes act had been
known in Bridgton, he would have got
the support of tho Irish electors. [Laugh
ter.] Sir (ieorgo did not dwell on
the object or the tyranny of t.hc league, or
•he ruin ivai loss it caused, n< r did lie enter
'ip m the question whether Lord Salisbury
and hurl Spencer wept justified in the poli
cies they adopt'd, Tho question lor the
I’ l ' l s ‘tit. discussion was whether the previous
policy, which had been so successful, should
•>e followed iiy the present government.
DRAWING THE LINK.
As far ns the action of an association was
wholly political it could not be condemned,
“Jtt if the action of an association destroyed
the liberty of the people and subverted order
and grx*[ government it did not matter
what the supposed motives of the associa
tion w re. It was enough that its action
was hostile to social order. [< Iheers. ] The
House had already decided that,
intimidation prevailed, preventing persons
ironi pursuing their lawful occupations. It
was not the duty of tho .government to lay
!** ! fore Parliament the information desired
by the opposition. Tho crimes act was now
pa it of the law. Action was taken by the
government as the executive. It was not
Decessarj to produce evidence iu support
°l executive acts. He contradicted the re
port* that he had disagreed with the govern
ment upon the step proposed. Ho believed
that the league 1 * aim was spoliation and in-
justice, and that its methods were in defiance
of the law. [Cheers].
Continuing, Lord Hartington said that he
bad some doubt as to the course adopted.
He should have preferred if it had been
possible that the government resort in the
first instance to the provisions of the crimes
act, but with their aim and object he en
tirely and earnestly sympathized. They
wore justified by the facts before them
in the course they had takon. He would
oppose Mr. Gladstone’s resolution because it
asked the House to interfere needlessly and
prematurely with the government’s exercise
of authority which Parliament had en
trusted to them and intended that they
should use. [Loud cheers.]
HARCOURT ON HARTINQTON.
Sir William Vernon Hareourt said he
thought that the preceding speech was an
extraordinary one from such a responsible
statesman. Knowing that the step he was
taking was fateful, both for Ireland and for
England, instead of advising the country
under these grave circumstances, Lord
Hartington only endeavored to show
that he had not been consulted, and there
fore was not responsible for what had been
done. [Laughter.] It had been the habit
of the Unionists to support the
government whether they were
consulted or not, but to-night he believed
that the Unionists would be resolved into
their original atoms, some would vote for
the government and some for the resolution.
Such was the union of the Unionists.
[Laughter and cheers.]
hartington’s support weak.
Lord Hartington’s support of the gov
ernment was certainly not of the most cor
dial character. His concluding argument
was weak, because this executive act would
have actually perished unless it had Parlia
ment’s approval. [Cheers.] The govern
ment allowed a verdict of not guilty
to be entered in several clauses
of the indictment against the
league, for they did not dare to proclaim it
an association tor the promotion of crime or
interfering with the maintenance of law'
and order. He would not extenuate or apol
ogize for an intimidation, but if that was
all the government desired to prevent they
could have attained that object by adopting
the advice of their Unionist friends ana
putting in force the “combination” clauses
of the crimes bill. The reason they had
not taken that course was because they
would have been compelled to produce evi
dence which would satisfy the country that
intimidation prevailed in Ireland, and they
were unabe to produce such evidence;
but the men they wished to suppress were
not intimidators, hut restrainers of intimi
dation. [lrish cheers.]
THE GOVERNMENT’S OBJECT.
The government wanted to strike the
league because it was inconvenient to them,
adverse to their political opinions and to
the pecuniary interests of the class they
represented, and it was characteristic of
them.that the first person struck was an
Irish member of Parliament and an editor
of an Irish newspaper. The only specific
cases which had been adduced
to justify the proclamation had
been specifically disproved. The country
would appreciate the unfairness of their
conduct and its object. Sir William ridiculed
the Ministry’s penny-a-line evidence and
the complaint that, their conduct in quoting
from untabled documents was a scandalous
endeavor to blast the reputation and suspend
the lilierties of a whole people upon evidence
that would not be received against the
meanest criminal. He doubted whether the
country would see twenty months of this
“resolute” government with irresolute gov
Mr. Goschen observed that Sir William
had been elected to hold a brief for the
league. Continuing he said that the gov
ernment were fully conscious of their re
sponsibility. The difficulty of their task
was increased bv the persistent opposition of
those who had themselves held high office,
and who under similar circumstances
were supported by the Conservatives. Sir
William affected to treat with contempt the
evidence written bv the official chronicler of
the leagues proceedings. [Cheers.]
HOUN OF THE LAND LEAGUE.
Mr. Goschou argued that, the league was
tho outcome of the growth of the land
league which ,the Liberals had proclaimed.
Its system was acknowledged in its earliest
days as likely to supersede the necessity of
overt acts of outrage, and now the
absence of outrages was pointed out
as a ground for refusing to sanction the
proclamation. There was nothing in any
country of the world that could equal this
fearful system of espionage carried on under
the auspices of the league.
Mr. Dillon —1 utterly deny that a system
of espionage is carried on by the league.
Mr. Goschen —Then I should like to know
how everything happened to be brought to
the knowledge of the local branches
of the league. Ample evidence has
proved the existence of a system for in
flicting material ruin and moral
death on many individuals. It is not sur
prising that the government is unable to
trace the connection of the league with the
outrages. When large bodies of men are
able to commit outrages, and leave no clue
to their identity, there is strong
ground to suspect that a pow
erful organization is behind them.
[Cries of “Oh,” and cheers.] Is it because
the leagu" punishment is more severe than
that of the law thnf the law has no terror
for the people. The government must
strike at courts rather than at the tools and
instruments that execute their devices. It
was not the government but the league that
invented tho new crimes. Under its code
friendliness, mercy, forgiveness and all
Christian virtues are crimes.
Mr. Healy, who ended the debate, coun
seled the Irish jteople to have confidence in
the pood intentions of the English people,
and to wait patiently, abstaining from vio
Mr. Gladstone's resolution was defeated
by a vote of 72 to IW.

BUSINESS SEEMS BETTER.
DUN & CO. REPORT AN UPWARD
TENDENCY IN PRICES.
A Feeling of Uncertainty Still Hover
ing About Trade Centres—The Vol
ume of Legitimate Business Largo,
but not Equally Distributed—The
Iron Market Sluggish.
New York, Aug. 26. —The following is
R. G. Duu & Co.’s review of trade for the
week: “The tendency of prices during the
past week has been upward for most pro
ducts, and tlio state of business is rather
bettor, but there is still much hesitation
and irregularity. The money market, for
speculative uses, is made easier by gold im
ports and Treasury purchases of bonds, but
much mercantile paper is dis
counted with difficulty, and some
considerable failures cause uneasiness.
The failure to reach a settlement of the
Rosenfield’s case at Chicago, troubles of
creditors, delay in the settlement of the
wheat deal at San Francisco, and the fall of
wheat sc. per cental in a day make some
disturbance. The Ives’ entanglement, the
failure of a stock firm for 81,500,000, and
the receivership for Mitchell, Vance & Cos.,
do not increase confidence. The volume of
legitimate business is large, but not equally
distributed, and in important branches there
is a shrinkage.
THE WHEAT MOVEMENT.
“Wheat has been going abroad largely—
-8,822,340 bushels in three weeks, against
7,321,107 for same time last year, but many
on purchases of one or two months ago, and
the export demand has been so checked by
improved foreign crop reports that even
only l%d. for freight to Liverpool fails to
produce activity. Prices are about where
they were a week ago. The yield in the
spring wheat States appears to lie excellent.
“The rains came too late to save a consid
erable part of the damaged corn, but have
nevertheless done great good.
“Cotton is strengthened by extravagant
reports of injury to the crop.
“Oil has risen 2% rents, and pork products
a shade, though the market is dull.
“Sugar has been advanced, the foreign
corner in beet sugar being the cause.
“Beef is dearer, with no change in hogs.

below the June level.
“In the woolen goods trade there is no im

distributed at firm prices.

firmer, and boot and shoe mnnnfaetuffefx

while large imports continue. Manufac

Western competition is felt by Eastern

for winter delivery.
SALES BELOW EXPECTATIONS.
“The Iron Age reports that the sales of
railway iron do not meet expectations, lie
cause ‘funds are forthcoming only slowly
for floating bonds,’ and new orders for axles
are very scarce, while on some contracts al
ready made delay in delivery is asked. The
uncertainty in Wallstreet, and behind that
the enormous diversion of available capital

rather rapid depression, and some realizing

signs of foreign buying still are not want

these, the excesses of merchandise imports

The Indians Intrenched in a BtronE
Position in the Hills.
Denver, Aug. 2t>. —Telegrams received
here this afternoon from Meeker deny the
reports of yesterday that Colorow is sur
rounded by militia and desires peace. The
Indians are intrenched in the hills, and so
protected by natural fortifications that their
dislodgmont by all the State militia com
bined ’.vill be impossible. Colorow yester
day said that he did not want “a little'
fight," but h*> did want n “big fight,” and
they would have it if the troops were not
called back—“lnjuns no fraid.”
Gapt. Lawson, who was returning to
Meeker, Wednesday afternoon from camp
Adams with telegrams, was headed off and
chased twenty miles and held by the In
dians until darkness permitted his escape.
They struck him about dusk at a bridge
which crossed a creek and fired at him
separately while chasing him.
Capt. Lawson returned the fire
twice. He reached Meeker early yesterday
morning, completely fatigued. If a tight is
avoided until the arrival of Gov. Adams,
the trouble may be amicably settled, but if
the militia ami Indians dash before his ar
rival war will probably ensue.

of the Indians to their reservation.

GERMAN IN THE PULPIT.
The Discussion of the Catholic Church
Matter Still in Progross.
Chicago, Aug. 26.—The News' special
from Louisville, Ky., says: “The Illinois
Stoats Zeituny, in urging attendance upon
the German Catholic Convention at Chi
cago recently, uttackod the Catholic Advo
cate, of this city, for likening the German
language to grunts of swine, and for an al
leged attempt to drive out tho German
tongues. Editor Henderson said of
this to-day: ‘Tim Rev. I>r. McGlynn
in tin article published in tho North Ameri
can Review tor August bitterly inveighed
against the Catholic church, charging it
with Germanizing vast territories in Ameri
ca, and isolating the people in s|eech and
customs from their fellow citizens. The
Advocate denied that tho church had taken
any such stand, but on the contrary, said
the stirred college at Rome had rejected ]te
tit.ons of certain Germans, cleric and lay,
who sought to have recognition of their
speech and customs specially provided for
by the church.
THE MOST PERFECT SPEECH,
“The Advocate said that English is the
most perfect speech God has given man,
nnd should be tho national speech of
America. It is said the Eng
lish speaking people, for 200 years
past, wished the German greater wit and
fewer consonants Other Euro|iean nations
asserted that the utterance of Germany
resembled the sound of pigs speaking civil
ized tongues with a bad accent. The advo
cates of this form of speech want now to
establish its discordant grunts in Amer
ica and desired by side wind to gain the
lesdstanee of the Catholic Church to stamp
out English. This language the German
immigrants desire to (su petuatein America,
and Catholic and Protestants equally desire
to maintain it in our midst,' and oust the
language of the foreign nation. The Cat.li
lie church has given a set. back to this mon
strous assumption. It will provide German
pastors where it can for flocks that exclu
sively speak that language, and it
will provide pastors wiio are
familiar with trie German tongue
for parishes where the parishonerfi’ knowl
edge of the English is of limited extent.
The church will do no more. It will not
assign sjeM’iul parochial hounds and specific
territory for German speaking people in

negroes arrived at Clear Lake, the place
where the prisoners uro confined, and more

boisterous and said they would rescue their
friends last night, come what may.
READY TO OPPOSE THEM.

to resist the mob. They had the advantage
of a good position, being in a house. More
over, the prisoners were all chained to j nuts
in the prison yard, and were told that if any
a tie 11 nit wtts made to rescue them they
would tie shot at once.
