itn Chris- tius eve a merry party met at
Hluo Itidi;e. After bcimj shown to our
rooms and making ourselves presentable,
we passed down to the drawing room
where wa were welcomed by the Puke of
Melvorne ami his lovely wife. We were
presented to a Mrs. llaynes, an elderly lady,
who had a kind, motherly face, with
stmnuly market features; but they were
so nicely blended and harmonized by pa
tience and sympathy, that we were attract
ed to her at once.
Hut what was our surprise at seeing the

so much pleasure In my quiet visit with

week was so short."
The conversation soon became general
Melvorne was In high spirits with his
"family," as he familiarly called us. An
nie seemed shy and embarrassed; but
through Stella's thoughtfulueRs she was
soon talking at her ease with Mrs. llaynes,
"I almost felt that I was personally ac
quainted with you, Ijuly Waverland,"
said Mrs. Haynes, addressing Stella, while
she was gently coaxing Myrtle to her side.
"Mr. and Mrs. I.ollard were very pleasant
companions and gave mo vivid descrip
tions or you an on our voyage."
"We had a most delightful Journey to
gether in California and Colorado. They
aelped to form a happy party," said Stella.

group and taking Annie by the hand, "al

such a tender motherly kiss, that I felt

After dinner as we were ret urning to the
erawtng-room, we heard strains of en
hanting music from some hidden nook.

arranging for the pleasure of a party had
taken the lead with Myrtle by her side,
and opeuing a door to another part of the
mansion carried us back to tbe scenes of

A busy time followed this arrangement.

While to our little party the wedding

Mi.rTr.ii zxvui. Tint historic ti:ksiat.
At a reception given at Haven's Hark
juite a number of distlngulsbed guest
wera present. Among thum was a geutlu
Ban who had once been a United States
minister to I'ersia; who, by the way, was
a friend of Col. llaynes. They soon en
gaged iu earnest conversation ou the one
Upic that the Colonel was so much inter
ested In, viz: the great and Increasing
ummlxirof Kngllsh landlords in America.
"Why, I have not heard very much
about the subject; L believe I did read
BomellUug in the paiers about a duke or
someone owning from twenty to fifty
miles of land in Dakota, but 1 was not in
terested In it," enid the ex-minister in an
unconcerned listless faahiun.
"1 was no more Interested thnn you are,"
SAld the Colonel, "when I eamo to Hrltaln,
but I am beginning to lcaru tbe extent ot
their Investments and can realize that
something must be done to stop it, or
Hritish lords will soon lord it over more
land In America than they have In all the
llritish Islands together.
"(), well. Haynes, if they do it will only
give us Americana more dignity and im
portance by having a few aristocrats In
our midst," said the ex-minister, watching
the ladles In a group opposilo, as though
he would rather join them than discuss
the unliiiHjrtant theme of absentee land
lordism iu America, which only involvos
the weal or woe of a few hundred genera
tions of people!
The Colonel reading the wish In the ex-
minister's eyes, crossed the room and pre
sented him as a personal friend, to the
Duchess of Melvorne, I-ady Waverland
and Miss Annlo Wren, who formed a pleas
ant group amid the brilliant throng.
"There you see how most Americans
feel on tlio subject of foreign landlord
ism!" said Mr. follard, who had been
standing near me while the Colonel and
ex minister had been conversing.
"I see they are very indifferent on the
subject," I said; "but it they only knew
how hard it will be to throw off tills yoke
that la now being fitted to their necks they
would soon be Intensely Interested."
If they would only turnback a hundred
years ana reaa a lew pages oi their own
history, they would pause long enough
m the mad whirl of business to estab
lish laws that would control this for
eign lund monopoly. Qen. Washington
saw the oppression that the children of
American fathers and mothers will feel in
their generation, when he said, 'What
doe England'! conduct deserve, and what
punishment ia there in store for the men
who have distressed million. Involved
thooaands in ruin, and plunged a number
less crowd ia Inextricable woe?'" said
"That describes the situation of Ireland
to-day," I said; "and that Is what I would
warn tbe people of America to prepare to
defeat and than."
"Ob, you are always talking of land
lords!" exclaimed Lord Sanders, as be
Joined ns. "That seems to be a favorite
theme of yours. I thought you were a
landlord yourself, Waverland."
"So I am, and that is why I know so
much about them. Every humane Im
pulse of my life baa been made to suffer
from the cruelty I have seen practiced on
starving, evicted tenants."
"I was a land-owner once in Ireland my
self, buttho tenants you sympathise with
so fervently would steal aud sell my stock
as fast as I could buy," said Ijord San
dors, "so I sold my lands there and In'
vested my money where tenants are law
abiding and stand by their contracts."
"I bought your estate," said Sir Wren,
"and the tenant who remained after tb.
moat cruel eviction, I found good, faithful
laborers. Men and women have stood by
every contract, and now I am going back
to Ireland to sen my lands to those very
men who were evicted from them years
ago. I have no fear but that they will
stand by every contract I make wlta
"You're welcome to deal with the Irish
as you please, I will huve nothing to do
with them," Sanders exclaimed. "I
would not live among such a blood-thirsty
people I I would sooner be among the FIJI
Islanders for safety!"
"I have found that the love of home and
liberty is the one strong element in every
Irish heart, and it is the hope of obtaining
these that has brought all classes Into
union with Parnell. My sympathies are
with the people. I want to see them have
a chance to become prosperous and bap
py," I said.
"It's easy to talk," said Lord Sanders,
with a sneer, "but If you were tried yon

would find your money and your lift
would lie very dear to you, so dear that the
common Irish tenant would be left to look
out for himself."
"Tbe time will come when we can prove
our loyalty to the cause of Home Rulu and
land reform," 1 said, with warmth.
"You may go into parliament but they
will never grant Home Utile to Irelainl,
or. Very much land reform while the
Queen has power to defeat it! Coercion
w ill lie enforced by ndding a greater num
ber to the official force now tM-uhlishod ia

Nations! League and all other scictic
dangerous to the government must be sup
pressed. The tj ievn is fully alive to tin
needs of the times. She will c.tll for more
troops to aid In stamping out this rebel
lious spirit!" said Iiord Sanders, Jingling
his watch chain and jewelry with vehe
mence. "Hut," said Sir Wren, ''some may still
remember the 'tcrritlc' shock of last Jan
uary. They may fear to carry out your
proposals. If the people of Ireland cannot
work openly they will find some other way
to accomplish their object. They are
deeply in earnest."
"Well, I'm glad I'm going to a land
where peace nits enthroned and tenant
haven't learned to avoid their legal obliga
tions," said Ixird Sanders, complacently
folding his long white hands aud winking
his sinister black eyes.
"I, ton, am going to that land, and If my
Influence has any power I shall exert it to
the utmost agutu.t this iiacroasiug evil,"
said Sir Wren.
If I was in a position to act for the
American people I should soon have a bill
paused that would refund to you alien
landlords every dollar you have paid for
your lauds. Then I would make another
law thut any alien who desired to buy or
lease lands there, should first take the
oath of ulleglance as an Amuricau citi

"That would be a fine way (A disposing

age of one dollar per acre, are now worth

You would only have them pay me what

during this denunciation of the alien rob

around and heard his words, full of with
Ixird Sanders did not say a word! He
felt there was truth in the slalemeilt that
be could not deny. I thought of the word
of Emerson when be was In Kngland:
That anyone might say anything he

Illard being a descoudaut from a
wealthy and ancient family, although not
of the nobility, was important enough to
be listened to with respect. After a short
pause th amusement of tbe evening con
tinued to a late hour.
"Well," I said, a I came home from the
Bouse of Commons, where the Tory gov
ernment had been destroyed, "our un

and unmaking minister. He 1 illustra

In history as 'the king makerl' "
I are not clad, neither am I sorry, to
learn of bis royal lineage," said Colonel
llaynes. "I would almost wish him to be
on of th people. Bnt hi inlluence will
be more powerful, perhaps, from th
knowledge of his noble origin."
"Give us a description of the proceed
ings in parliament," said Stella, as wi
seated ourselves In the pleasant drawing
room of Raven's I'ark. The duke aud
duchess ot Melvorne, Col. Haynes, his
mother and Annie were with us, forming
a quiet morning party.
"The House of Commons," I begun,
"was crowded in every part. At a very
early hour Mr. I'arnell' ami his faithful
eighty-six were there and planted their
hats on the choicest sjs)ta ou the opposi
tion benches. Tbe breakfast ut which we
regaled ourselves iu the dining-room of
the House was a sight worth seeing. Sixty
nut down to one long table, the remaiuder
at a cross table. The view from the state
ly windows which overlook the river was
charming one; th sunlit up the scene. A
facetious Ulsterman was one who aspired
to outdo the I'arnell lies by rising early.
When he caught sight of the acre of Par
nell bat he rushed into the dining-room
to see the prodigy. He was greeted with
clap ot thuuder in th shape of an uproar
ous laughl They did not forget the cour
tesy ot war, however, but Invited hitn to
partake with them, and, instead of poi
soned wine which the English gave to
Shan O'Neal, they gav biro his choice ot
honest beefsteak, eggs and bacon. By '
noon every seat in the House waa taken.
But as there can be no business done In
House until four oclock, the tnembir
roamed about hatless through the lobby
and grounds to pass away the lagging
hours. At last the Herald's voice was
beard resounding through tbe hall. Every
member rose to his feet, while the ser
geant at arms bearing the mace, the chap
lain, tbe speaker and his train bearer
entered. Prayer occupied about ten
minutes. Then followed an oppressing
silence. Just when every nerve waa raised
to th utmost tension, an elderly gentle
man rose and gave a homily on hats, until
Mr. Bradlaugh's finger and Goshen's fist
caused an interruption. During the homi
ly, Mr. Gladstone, who looks fresh and
well for a man of seventy-eeveu, eat in his
favorite attitude with bis head thrown
back and hands crossed the one great fig
ure In th whole assembly."
"Yes!" exclaimed Melvorne, "he is al
ways that, ths vain old man!"
"When the votes were cutd it waa a com
plete defiat to the Tory government that
