LONDON , Nov. 14. fNcw York Herald
Cnblc-Spuc'lnl to the BF.I : . ] Mr. Polund ,
treasury piosecutor , the John H. Fellows of
London criminal law barristers , rendered the
public a great service to day bysettlnglegally
aright the iclut ions between Trafulgur square
nnd Uio right of the populace to use It
t hol'd meetings there. Three score agita-
tois and rioters having been disposed of at
Bow street , which serves London like the
Tombs police serves Now York and where
two magistrates hold two courts , the case
came on of Cunninglnim Graham , n Scotch
member of parliament , for yesterday ob
structing the police and e'licotiraging u riot.
Mr , Poland in opening the ease said : " 1 call
attention to the statute regulating Trafalgar
square1 , 7-f , Victoria chapter ( U ) . It shows
that it is crown property und not taxpayer
property and the notice wns issued by the po
lice forbidding its occupancy , in the name of
the crown. Tliatbefng.su Trafalgar square was
In the position of other crown property. No
person had any right in that square except
with permission of the crown. The statute
was not Intended , however , to interfere with
Uio use of the square by the public1 for any
ordinary purpose. Tlio crown , through its
ministcis , had allowed a public use of the
bouaro as a place of passugc , and , to sonic
extent , as a place of recreation. Some per-
cons , however , conceived the notion , because
they ) md not always been interfered with ,
they had n right to go there and
Htand on tlio base of the Nelson column
nnd attract crowds of people to listen to
them. That any person that had his atten
tion directed to the subject e-oulcl conceive
that ho had n right to stand on the Nelson
column and attract people to listen to
speeches was about the most idle contention
ever raised. The same ridiculous contention
was raised in lb7'J. The people thought they
had a right to go into Hyde park anil
make speeches theie. Crown property
was like the property of nnj
private individual. Later it was
thought right to regulate the mode in which
some parks should be used for public meet
ings. Mr. Poland proceeded to quote from
the picumblc of theml of parliament to show
that while enjoying such parks steps were
taken to prevent the public being molested 01
annoyed and said in view of the public meet
ings the public were allowed , subject to rulcf
mid-regulations , to go to Hyde , Victoria anil
Butterscn parks. Those rules were plain ane
simple , but they were questioned by a Mr. .
Bniloy. His case was tried before Lord Chiel
J'ustleo Cockburn and Justices Blackburn
Mellor and Quaint. It was contended Unit tin
public were entitled tothousoof thopnrksnm :
n right for tlio purpose of passing througl
them and for the. purpose also of delivering
addresses. The lord chief justice said this a1
a proposition wns very startling as park'
wcro the property of the crown nnd that the
enjoyment of them by the people was subject
lo the consent of the crown. Tlio chief jus
lice controverted the idea which seemed t (
prevail that the public could do ns they likcc
In parks and said ho was unaware o :
any legal principle .and authority foi
Hint idea. "Thus , " said Mr. Poland
"in uneeiulvoc.il langtiago it was stated that
parks were the property of the crown and ir
that respect private property and that , ex
ropt with the permission of tlio crown , lie
person had a right to nako a speech or celled
actowflhore. These calls were stated fron
Iho bench in the forty-sciond volume of UK
law journal , page 40. That being the state
law , Uio crown , through iti
ministers , had determined that ii
the interest of tlio public these meeting !
should not bo held in Trafalgar square. 1
Iho people wanted to hold meetings let then
? o to Hyde park , obeying its regulations , o
to Victoria , or to Battersea parks. The ;
were not to bo allowed , the authorities said
lo hold uicotings in Trafalgar square in th
heart of London , where thousands and ten
Df thousands might bo collected togethc
and when it was known * from experience
s for instane.0 from what resulted in the be
pinning of IbSO , when riots and disorder foi
lowed the meetings there and while propert ,
was interfered with , dangerous co'nscqucne-c
were likely to result. Accordingly notice
were issued prohibiting these meetings , bu
In spite of the notice the people said thn
they would hold the meetings ,
At the conclusion of this opening Mi
Asqulth , Q. C. , another M. P. , cotmse
for the accused , nsked an adjourn
luent for a week. It is no\
certain that fresh disorder will como nnd
new attempt bo made to hold meeting
lu Trafalgar square licit Sunday. All th
radical clubs to-night so resolved. Mi
Hyiidmnn in n speech before one deliberate ! ;
said to his fellow clubbistH : "Tlio questlo
Is , Howinuchlongerr.ro wo going to luiv
the killed nnd wounded all on ono side1 ?
Moreover the Pall Midi Gazette this ovcnin
distinctly advises no surrender of attempt
to hold meetings in Trafalgar'square.

cslsting tlio patent officers that within the
last six months thousands of farmers in

imp notices were served uiwn the users of
driven wells that they must pay the amounts
demanded if they would avoid a suit for en-
frinsemeiit. This tin-cat has generally been
sutllcicnt to force the farmers to pay , nl-
hougli a few have resisted. It is said that
he owners of tlio patent were afraid that the
Iowa cases would bo decided against them ,
which accounts for their haste to collect all

Four years ngo the Iowa legislature thought
hat public inteiests demanded a stringent
tispection of illuminating oils , and so it cro-
ited a department for this purM | > se , and the
governor selected an oil inspector. Tlio re
cent publication of the second biennial report
of this department calls attention to the
jreutwork Unit has been accomplished and
lUstifles the step taken li.v the general nssrm-
jly. The foes collected by the ofllco make it
self-sustaining , so that the state is at no ox-
lenso for its maintenance. The Iowa test
for illuminating oils is very high : In fact , ono
of the highest in tlio country , and many oil
oflners and dealers have felt like complain
ing at the caution that was put upon
them. Hut the thoroughness with
which the rules mid logulutlona
the law has been enforced is seen in the entire -
tire Immunity of this stat from oil ex-
plosions. Tlio "exploding lamp" Is practi
cally n thing of the past so far as this Mate
Is concerned , the oil insi > octor stating in his
last report that with 1M,000 ) barrels of oil
used in this state during the past lllteeii
months , there has not been a single explosion
from imperfect oil. Investigation of a few
accidents ascribed to that cause shows that
they wcro duo to-soiuo other reason. This IH
a very remarkable showing and is it * own
highest eommendatinn of the. necessity and
efllolency of the inspection law.
