LONDON , Juno 7. Gladstone entered the

ceeded straight lo his scat , \yiien his
presence was noticed ho was greeted by
tremendous cheers. Tlio premier vvoro a
while ro o in his lapel. The commons was
ciovvdcd to Its utmost capacity at the Hour of
opening the session. Gladstone , icpljlng

thu government was unable to promise
to Incorporate miasmes for homo
eminent In Kngland , Wales and Scotland In
the revised Iilsli homo rule bill , when It was
brought In dm Ing the autumn session , In the
event of Its passing the second reading now.
'I he opposition loudly cheered John Blight

bald the soveiclgnly of tlio Impel la ! govern
ment depended on the clause which It was
highly piobihlc thu majoiity ol the house
would never consent to. If tlie bill passed , a
tiemendotis stiuggle would be Iniiuguiated

tiol ot education In that country. ICegaidlng
the question vvhethei tlie bill would piove

or lead lo eventful sepnation , Goschcn
Raid he did not think It would
niovo a duality. Tlmt would depend en-
thel.v on the assiiranco given by the Iilsh
niembeis. The premier at one time was sup
posed to have given a pledge lo lecoiibtiuct
thu bill , but he subsequent ! ) Indignantly ie-
pudiated thai assumption.
Gladstone iiiteiiupteii 'That Is a cross
crior. What the gentleman , thinks looked
like Indignation was nij c.agci Repudiation
of the cool statement thai 1 had le&olved lo
reconstruct tlie hill. "
Goschen , ic'-uuilng , b.ald ho saw ( lie dis
tinction but was unable to see how the

doubt came fiom voting not on the bill but
Irom explanations given the ioicicn ollicu
and amplified and explained away on the

the answer were made on Iho ensuing Mon-
day. It had also been elicited in v.iuous let

his llio icconstiuctlon bill was
the basis on which many niembeis would
unite In voting with the government on the i u which eveiy ono admitted to be thu
most impeltant cvei submitted to pirlia-

achieved the insult if thu bill is withdrawn
after the second reading it it
passes tliat stage. Tlie premier is
now more anxious to leaiii lioni

Continuing. Goschen bald : "The piesence

.Mr. Gladstone followed. On arising he
was loudly ehecicd. He expressed his

Mr. Cliambcilaln could only speak within

anotuci bitterly contested nalil In the senate
to-day. Ho had the oleomargarine bill
passed by the li/juso last xveek referred to the
senate committee on agriculture , by n vote of
23 to 21. This insu esa report on the meas
ure within a few days , and the vole indicated
Us strength , npon the final passage. The
opposition to the blll was coucen
t rated In the form of a movement
to refer It to the committee on
hnance , tlio members of which , It Is
said , are opposed to the bill. Senator Vnn
W ykln advocating Its reference to the com
mittee on'ngrlculture plainly and forcibly In-
fprmed the opposition that the only object
there was In referring the bill to the finance
committee was to defeat Its consideration
and time those who voted against reference
to tlicagiiculluie coiumitte which has been
considciing the subject lor six weeks nnd is
already practically ready to report upon it-
would have to account lor theh action to the
farmcis ot the country.

WASHINGTON , Juno 7. At a meeting of

fairs were such that it would leqidro a sacrl-
hco on his part to assume nnd discharge the
duties ot chairman , but he had certainly not
been Influenced to decline by any apprehen

WASHINGTON' , Juno 7.1 [ Special Telegram
to the BKIJ.J A bill was presented In the
house to day uy Mr. Morrow , of California
which Is of special Interest to the Noithwcst-
ern states and territories. It provides that
the n o and occupancy of any part of the
public lands of the United States by any
person without claim or color of title made
In coed faith nndei the laws of the United
States Is declaied to bo unlawful ; and It Is
pi ohlbltcd that any person In possession of
any of the public lands of the United States ,
In any of the ten Itorlcs under title or color
of title , 01 any right to possession thereof
from the United States , or any
grantee of , or who not being In
possession has title or color of
title or rightto the possession of any such
bonds dcilvcd fiom Iho United States , may
maintain any action to recover possession
thereof , or an action to iccovor damages from
any person who shall trcsspass thereon , or
for damages caused thereto , or to natural or
planted products thereof , or ImpiovcmcntB
thereon , by horses mules , cattle , sheep ,
goats , bogs or any othci domestic animals
belonging to , or In custody and keeping of
another , anj thing in the laws to the con
trary notwithstanding. The object of the
bill Is to protect ciops from
the ravages of cattle. There aio at pres
ent many persons In the states and teiritoiios
having laige amounts ot public lands en
gaged In cattle raising and that of other do
mestic animals , and who are In the habit of
occupying largo areas ot the public domain
without any authority. Such persons have ,
In many instances , by their power and Inllu
once , Induced legislatures to enact laws
vvherebj' the owners of lands are denied the
right to maintain actions against others to
recovei for such damages as may bo done to
their lands and product theieof by lioises ,
cattle , etc. , unless it appears that at the time
such trespasses vvoro committed the lands in
aucstlou were enclosed by a so called law fill
fence. As the cost of fencing the lands Is
many times greater than the pi Ice put noon
IJiem by the government , it Is a gicat burden
upon actual bottlers.
The oloomaigarine bill seems likely to meet
with much opposition in the senate. The
fi lends of the bill , headed by senator Miilci ,
want It to go to the agricultural committee ,
while its opponents , Beck , Merrill andotheis
of tlie finance committee , will insist on its
rcfcionoo to that committee. It Is now on
the table and awaltlni ; reference. It Is cei
taln that it will bo made less objectionable
to the olcomuigarine people.
