Long before the hour appointed for the meet

every scat on tliu fl-ior wis ; taken , whllo the
galleries were crowded with a distinguished
audience , \vlilcli had been attracted by tliu
annonnciincnt that Mr. Gladstone would
move tliu second reading of hid honiu uilo

of Wales ; nobility was present In force and
wntehrd tliu proceedings with intense Inter

entrance wns the .signal Cor vociferous cheers
from both liberal and Irl.sli members.
When quiet was ic.stoicd , the venerable
premier arose , and In 11 linn , clear voice
moved tlie second reading of tiie bill. In his
reniurks he stated that he did not intend , forte
to present , to ask for n continuance of the
debute from day to ilny.

LONDON , May 10. Mr. Gladstone's voice at
the outset of his speech In advocacy of his
motion was Indistinct , hearse and feeble , but
It cleared as he proceeded , lie Kald ho de-
Hired nt the opening to makou statement of
his personal position , which he had entirely
refrained from making when ho Introduced
the bill. Hu had never at nnv period de
scribed homn-rnlu In liclaud as incompatible
with Imperial unity. [ Cries of "Oh ! oh I" )
That was exactly so. [ Cheers. ] Contribu
tion hnd come Irom seine members wo visited
medlothian making speeches stnlfcd full of
totally untrue and woithlcss asertlons [ oh ,
oh and cheers.J
In 1S71 ho had expressed the great satis
faction witli which he had heard the state
ments of the supporters of home ride , as
those statements coiidemplatcd noth

the cmporo li'arnoliito cheers.J
TWO IMI'OSSIIII.U CONDITIONS.
Two ipiestlons always presented themselves
to his mind regarding home rule :
Flistly , It must be shown that It was de
sired by Urn meat nuns of the population of
licland. That condition had never been ab-
so.1"10' ' ) ' a"d unequivocally present until Iho
passing of the representation of the people
net. [ Cnters. ! . ,
Secondly , Was 'umio ' rule compat
ible with the unii7 of the em-
iilii)1. ) ' That , question had beeS answered
by Mr. i'arnell who had declared uiI what
he thought , of under the name ot home ru. ?
was simply the autonomy of Ireland.
Alternative coercive and reform measures
hud been tried , and tliey had equally failed
to conciliate. The medicine of coercion , es
pecially , had boon the medicine continually
applied In increasing doses and with dimin
ishing resnlta. I i'arnelllto cheers. ]
I.H.SSONS I'KOJI CANADA.
As regards the autonomy of Ireland bolus
a menace to the unity of the empire , hu re
minded the house that the same argument
was employed against Canadian Independ
ence. When it was determined to concede
home-rule to Canada , she was In precisely
the temper attributed to 11 eland to-day. Can
ada did not get home-rule because she was
loyal and friendly. She was now loyal and
friendly because slio got home-rule. [ Irish
cheers. ] Ho ( ( iladstone ) sat In parliament
during the whole Canadian controversy ,
taking as a young man an active part in if.
what was the nature of Canadian debate ?
The ease of Canada was not parallel to the
case of Ireland ( opposition cheers ) , not in
every particular. As the bill offered to Ire
land is dltl'eieiit In important details from
acts which disposed of the case of Canada ,
but although not paiallcl their positions are
analagous. What was the issue In the case
ot Canada ? " ( lovernment from Downing
street. " These few woids embraced the whole
controversy. " ( lovernment from Downing
street , " meaning , of course , "Government
Irom Westminister. " [ Hear , hear. ] What
was the cry of those who resisted autonomy
in Canada ? It was the cry which has slept a
long time , acquiring vigor from sleeping.
It was the cry that the unity of the cr.ipire
would bo endangered. In hls'oplnlou of the
relations of Canada and Knghuul then there
was very great danger to the unity of ( ho em
pire , but It was a remedy for this mischief ,
not the mischief itself , which wns regarded
as dangerous. [ Irish cheers. ] In this result
the cases of Ireland and Canada are precise
ly paiallel. In these days tlio people
ple of Canada were habitually de
nounced In this honso as rebels. [ Prolonged
government and 1'arnellito cheers. ) Some
< it those so called rebels were protcstants of
F.nglish and Scotch birth , but the majority
weie Catholics of French extraction. Was
the cry against them raised because they
weie Mvnch extraction Catholics ? No , sir.
Wilh the English in Upper Canada it was ox-
nctly the same thing. Doth rebelled.
llo ( ( iladstone ) remembered O'Connell
In the house In the debate on the Canadian
question , refcriing to the French Canadian
leader Paplneau , saying :
This case is just the case of Ireland with
this diirerencu : The Canadian niritator has
" ( ) " at the end of Ids name instead of at the
beginning. " [ Laughter. ]
Canadian rebels were superseded , but at
the moment of military victory tliu political
ditllciilty began and the vlctorn were van
quished. If wo were military victors the
Canadians were victorious In the Held of
TIIHV FINK l\Nni'll IN A RCMKDV.
Hero the speaker jevle wed the history of
the past in an endeavor to prove that only
tluoiiL'h a measure which would bJ satisfac
tory to Ireland was n settlement of the ques
tion feasible. There Is danger to the unity
< if Iho empire In the present relations with
Ireland , but the opponents of the bill have
applied the eiy of danger to the remcilv In
stead of to the existing mischief. Mr. ( ihul-
stnnu then i el erred to tlio siirnllicant expres
sions of opinion that had come across the
Atlantic approving tha vital piindples of
tlio bill. [ Cheers and derisive cries. ]
A i'iini.vi.vr : : gi'isrio.v. :
Ho asked gentlemen who appeared to think
that these manifestations ot the opinion of
America were worthless [ hear , hear ] If they
would have considered them worthless if
such manifestations had condemned the bill.
It'lieei.s. | Coming to the leading objections
to the bill , tie said : Ho noticed that the llrst
was ono objecting to the exclusion of the
Irlnh membeis from the Imperial parliament
ns a breach of tlio cardinal principle
that there out-lit not to bo taxation without
presentation. The opponents of ( ho bill said
that England could never enforce taxation In
Ireland without representation , and that
nothing but the consent of Ireland would In
duce them to contemplate such action for a
moment. .Many members were not even sat-
istied with the consent of lioland. llesides
this general constitutional oqjivtlon , there
rxisted the regret that there woold cease to
Jie a symbolic lepresentatlon of tlio unity of
the empire through the absence of the Irlbh
TI1K nSSKNTIAT. I'lHNCIl'J.i : .
Now history has shown that in torclgn , or
what ho prelened to call over-sea affaire ,
tlio Irish people do not stand In tint same 10-
latlon as the people of Knrland and Scot-
hind. [ Hear , hear , and cries of no. ] Is it a
wonder that In n country with woes so great.
and whose hopes have so olten been doomed
to disappointment , the mind of the people
should bs continued to thu position of their
own country ? An essential pilnclplo to the
Irish people has become to obtain control of
their own affairs Still , the bill piovldes
that the Iibli shall not bo excluded
from Imperial atl'uirs. Clause 2'J provides for
recall of rcpicsentatlves In both houses of
Irish pan iamenc. before the parliament can
proceed to the alteration of a statute upon
which the two countries do not agico. An
other clause provides that , on certain condi
tions , thu Irish assembly may vote Rur.is ot
money for purposes excluded from Its ordl-
lie trusted that should Great Hrlt-
Rlii bo Involved In a ' great war ,
whore Ireland would. bo exposed to common
danger , thu Irish assembly would respond to
n message from the crown by voting money
to prosecute the war. [ Opposition laughter. ]
Mo great question such ns succession to the
crown ought to fall under the discussion of
this secondary authority , but money ones'-
tlons , such ns treaties of cotnmcice , might
require direct communication between both
parliaments. Ho would therefore propose
on behalf of the government some
plan of this kind , llo proceeded to explain
that the government remained undecided ns
to the conditions under which the Irish mem
bers or an Irish commission should appear In
the Imperial cabinet. The government did
not consider this to bo the point , In
his opinion If the Irish members
comeback In nny numbers It would be nec
essary to devlsu a now system of election.
He would certainly have no jealousy of Irish
members. If thu Irish should reappear In
their force ho would rather have them amply
rather than scantily , and jealously treated.
Till' OIMCCT 01' TIIK HIM.
In conclusion , ho declared that the main
object of the bill was to abolish root and
blanch the discontent prevailing in Ireland
and to restoio social order by removal not
merely of symptoms , but of causes ot that
discontent. If thu opponents of the bill hud
an alternative policy , what was It ?
he asked. If Lord Itaiidholp Churc
hill should undertake the ta lc of
settling inland what did he mean to do was
Ids plan that proposed by the loyalists In
Heltast last November. The ICngllsh gov
ernment might bo daring , but not so daring
ns to undertake to reconstruct the Irish gov
ernment without touching the legislative
( Iltllculty. If Lord llartlngton has a plan let
him disclose It. He appealed to Lord Hart-
Inuton to state Ills solution of the Irish prob
lem. Thcv had reached a crisis In the his
tory of the nation. The path of boldness
was the only path ot safety. [ Cheers. ] All
men ought to know their own minds , and
on-lit to lull It.
THU I'ATE OP Illlll.ANl ) .
The fate of Ireland could not bo passed Into
the lottery of politics. [ I'arncllite cheers. ]
He had been told that , he was steering Ire
land to ceilain ruin. Let his opponent * show
n way to rescue It , Let Lord Hartlngton , In
moving the rejection of this bill , trace the
visible or palpable road through daikness.
"Members of the housnof 'commons have
before them a great opportunity to a close
strife of seven hundred years ago , and of
knitting by hands tinner and higher in
diameter than heretofore , the hearts and
niTc tloim ol the Irish people and of cement
ing the noble fabric of the British nation. "
[ Loud and continued cheering. ]

Mr. Gladstone was followed by Lord II art-

measures , lie failed to remember a single In
stance in which Gladstone had taken

to take who were unprepared to suggest In
what direction a measure for tlio house could
bo Immediately revised. He believed that
tbc concession made to-night would not
meet the demands of Mr. Chamberlain. * In
conclusion , lie moved that the bill be read

WASIIINOTO.V , May 10 , The commissioner
of the general land ofllcc , in his response to

ed , entries suspended by his order of April
If , ISA ) , ran ail be Investigated and disposed
of In about a year and a half. A largo per
centage of these entries ho thinks are fraud
ulent. The propoithm of now eases that will
require such investigation will be much less
than In those previous to April ii , 1&S5. Since
the order of suspension had the effect to ma
terially check the making or completion of
fraudulent entrio.s , It was the ease with
which frauds could be perpetrated under ex
isting laws , and tliu immunity offered by the
hasty issuance of patents , ho says , that en
couraged tlio making of fictitious
and fraudulent entries. The certainty of
thorough Investigation would restrain such
practices , but great fraud must Inevitably ex
ist so long as an opportunity of fraud la preserved -
served in tliu laws and so long as it Is hoped
by inocnrers and promoters of Iraud that ex
aminations may bu impeded or suppressed.
The commissioner renews his recommenda
tion that ( lie pre-emption of commuted home
stead , timber culture , timber land and desert
land laws be repealed , and says , questions ,
broadly stated , are whether hinds shall bu
protected , and an honest acquisition of title
thereto Insisted upon , or dishonest appropri
ation allowed. These ouestlons cannot long
remain in abeyance. With the present heed
less rush ot speculation und monopoly tlio

up without lirst buying off speculative claims
or avoiding some invalid entry by contest

The situation among the railroad stilkers ap
pears to bo steady , but certainly changing.
I'uaight men have yielded and gone bnck to
work , where they could , and there Is proba
bility thai this is prophetic of the course that
may eventually bo followed by others. The
railroads , wltli ono exception , have declined
to treat with any committees from.tho strik
ers , but have lestorcd to tlioirplaces , Individ
ually , such men as they hail room for. Many
of the old hands ave at work again , and many
more are seeking for admission. There was
perceptible on all hands a general feeling
that the beginning of the end of the present
labor troubles was at hand.
A visit to the various freight yards this
morning showed much activity among the
freight warehouses of tlio roads. A strikers'
committee visited the Chicago , Milwaukee. &
St , Paul road and had a conference with Su
perintendent Krllng , who informed them
that he would not treat with them as a com
mittee , but if the striking workmen came to
him as Individuals ho would transact
business with them. He assures them that
the company had determined not to reinstate
strikers as a body under any circumstances ,
but that If any Injustice had been done any
men he would see to It that It was remedied.
He was sure , however , that no such Injustice
had been done them. The committee with
drew , and Immediately after several Individ
ual applications for employment were made
by the strikers. Many of them were re-em
ployed , Iput with the understanding that they
come In as men and not as members of any
The Chicago & Northwestern road had a
sulllclcnt number of new men enmloycd to
handle their business and gave the committee
no encouragement , and refused to make
room for strikers by discharging the new
men. The company , however , reinstated
several of the strikers this morning , and
many applications have been received from
Individual freight handlers .isklng for em
ployment. The old men on the Hock Island
road when they asked to bo taken back and
put to work this morning were told that the
road had been handling as much freight as
was brought it and inoro * in jiro-
poitlon than any other road in Chi
cago. The company would not discharge
men who had worked during the strike , but
as many others as were required were se
lected from the ranks of the late strikers and
put to work , and everything was going on
there to-day as if such a thing as a stiike had
n ever been heard or.
HHTTF.Il rilOSI'ECTS AIICAn.
Four of the lumber districts showed signs
of reviving Industry. There was a business
air throughout the districts though resump
tion of work was by no means general.
There was no disorder. There was no law
lessness. Many smokestacks were sending
fortli volumes of black vaper that formed
itself Into small clouds. The hi.su of steam
and the hum of machinery was heard hero
and there. Many wageworhers were seen

posts to begin the week with the happy pros
pect of a week's pay ahead and the memory
of an anxious family behind , lint all the
signs visible on the surface were not so
promisini : of revival. At several , factories
groups of workmen stood about with Idleness
and uncertainty plainly written on their
fanes. Their grievances weio not yet settled ,
their money almost exhausted and the posi
tion of their families at homo was ono of
sore anxiety. It was the beginning of a new
week. What will the bosses do ? they asked
A large number of sash , door and bllnjl
factories resumed operations this morninir.
Several forges and Iron works set their fur
naces'golnsr , and some minor shops started
up afresh , but the planing mills arn yet mo
tionless , and the lumber yards are idle.
Measures are making , however , that may
soon end in general resumption in all depart
All the sash , door and blind factories re
sumed on the basis of nine hours pay for
olKht houre work. 1'lanlngmills did not re
sume and will hardly do so until the lumber
vards are again In a state of activity. The
lumber yards and their 10,000 or more
sliovers , stevndors and all sorts of unskilled
laborers were still Idle this morning. Lum
bermen say they are ready to resume opera
tions as soon as their men como back In fiufll-
cient numbers to warrant them In starting
up , but that only the old schedule of hours
and waaes will bo accepted. If the men do
not choose to come back on these terms , the
works will be left Idle indefinitely , they say.
even though the entire lumber trade of the
city is broken up. They declare that since
thu situation has been forced upon them ,
they will not bo shaken In the stand they
have taken to control their own business and
bo dictated to by nobody.
GAINS AND IjOSSES.
Closing Scenes In tlio ( Eight-Hour
Strike in Chicago.
CHICAGO , May 10. All of'the railways In
the city resumed operations tills mornlngand ,
are accepting and caring for all freight with
out limit. The situation , however , as effect
ing freight handlers , Is still unsettled and
( tovelopcs unexpected phazes. The Ualtl-
inoro & Ohio set men to work this morning ,
conceding them an eight-hour working day
with nine hours' pay. The freight handlers
of this road had not been acting In concert
with other freight handlers , and gained their
victory by independent negotiation with the
company. It Is not known what effect this
concession will have upon the other roads. A
committee of striking freight handlers of the
Chicago & Northwestern road called upon the
olllchils this morning and expressed a desire
to return to work on the old basis. The com
pany lopllcd that the men had been given
lull notice to icturn to work but failed to dose
so , As a consequence the company had its
business seriously Interfered with and had
been put to the trouble and expense of pro
curing new men. These men filled the entire
working quota of thu company , and it had no
places to offer the men who had gone out on
tliu strike. The ultimatum Issued Saturday
by the inantilacturcis of metal goods. In
which they distinctly say they cannot grant
the night-hour day , made the situation In
this line of manufacture of Interest this
morning. The chief point wasCiane liros. '
factory , which glvesemployment to 1,200 men.
It was thought If these men accepted thu sit
uation and went to work at ten hours'pavfor
ten hours' work , tlioir action would have
gicat weight on thu men on a sttlko In other
tactorlcs. Uefore7 this morning there was
quite a crowd In the vicinity of the woiks ,
but not thu least symptom of dlsoidtr. In
the pipe mill 200 men went to work and 200
started in the general bhops. The Chicago
Malleable Iron works stalled up In lull blast
tins , morning , 600 men bclnir employed at
nine hours' pay for eight hours' work.
The excitement over the labor troubles this
morning is principally confined to the lum
ber district. Thu only mill to Mart up was
1' . Wohler &Co. Mighty men wont to work
at eight hours with nine hours' pay. Later
in thu morning all thu sash , door und blind
factories started up. About 1,500 men went
to work at eight hours for nine hours' pay.
A committee- striking freight handlers
called upon Agent Dctz , of the Fort Wayne
road , tills morning , and Intimated to him
( hat all old men must bo taken back or none
world go to woik. llo refused the terms ,
and said he would discharge none of tlufim-
potted men who wished to stay. A canvass
among the now men showed that n good
many of them wished to icturn home , They
will bo furnished transportation' , and the old
hands will be taken buck.
The Wabash strikers were notified that
they would have to null the Freight Hand
lers' union. They agreed to do so. All re
turned to work , but some were put In other
departments , and the now men retained.
The Louisville. Now Albany A Chicago re
fused to take tlio old men back. The com <
p.tny said It had a full ( complement of new
men and would nut discharge them. The
strikers loft very much dejected. The Grand
Trunk took hark all its own men. The Lake
Shore strikers were all reinstated at the old
rate of pay. Fifty men , employed at the
Chicago & Atlantic frcUht house , were In
formed they could return to work on the
same conditions as before they struck. The
now men were told they couhl stay If they
wished. Only five of the strikers were taken
back by the Chicago & Illinois.

duced resolutions commending the courage
and heroism of the police In the Dcsplalncs

A scries of resolutions extendlnir the thanks
of the council to Mayor Harrison and the
Chief of Police Kborsold. for their energy In
suppressing the riots and to the men at the
bomb explosion for their undountcd courage
and dctciminatlon to maintain the public
peace were unanimously adopted.
The conduct of Captain Ward and Inspector
Bonlield were espcciallv commended. Heso-
intlons proposed that provisions bo made for
pensioning disabled policemen and the fam
ilies of the dead ones In the next appropria
tion bill. This provision was reluctantly
stricken out when It was explained by the
mayor and scveial aldermen that under the
charter the city could not pension anyone.
To reach a similar end , however , the follow
ing was finally framed and agreed to :
Resolved , That the city council of the city
of Chicago hereby requests tlio mayor and
advises all future mayors to employ all offi
cers o the police department who were on

I'otter has been in business in" this city forever
over seventeen years and has always been
considered one of our best citizens in every

from the continued dullness ot trade while

attempting to do some wholesale
business. Mr. Potter has paid
off 80,000 of indebtedness In the past two
years , and hoped to see his wav out , but at
last had to throw up the sponge. He lias
given mortgages on his entire stock for bor
rowed money to the extent of some 87,000.
His total liabilities amount to § 12,000 or

who believe him to be an honorable man.
