Ltmio.v , July 30. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to THE Bnc. ] There was
i marked difference In the appearance of the
bouse when it met this afternoon. Scats
tvero plentiful except In the parts allotted to
Uraugcrs , which were all crowded. The
peers did not care to como down to hoar Mr.
Uradlaugh , although they flocked In in such
numbers us to ovorflow-tholr limited space ,
rholiullus'gnllurlcs were lllled.among the fair
visitors being the duchess of Murlborough ,
Who was anxious to hoar her brother-in-law ,
Lord Randolph Churchill , for the flrf > t tlmo.
The duke of Murlborough , In the opposite
gallery , was also ono of the early arrivals.
While Mr. Bradlaugh was speaking the
bouse filled very slowly. The junior mem
ber from Northampton has long made a
study of tha cost of monarchy in this coun
try. Ho came this afternoon to impart in
formation , but before the dinner hour It was
his lot to receive a good deal more than ho
gave or bargained for. Mr. Bradlaugti Is so
clever a man that It might well have been
supposed tllat ho would take warning by the
lessons afforded by the examples of Mr.
Lnbouchero ana Mr. Storey last
night. These two worthy gentlemen over
loaded their speeches with masses of
matter which no ordinary audience could bo
expected to digest. Bnidlaugh full into tti
B3tno pit. Ho had got up n great case , but.
Bomo of It rested on doubtful law , and the re
sult was that ho had the pleasure of seeing n
good deal of it knocked to pieces ultogcthcr.
lie labored heavily this afternoon and came
vary near losing the attention of his au
dience altogether.
It wns bruited about that Randolph was
going to speak , and the house became densely
packed , ns usual when this is the caso. The
members were compelled to take refuge in-
Bide the galleries provided for them. There
begins to attach to Lord Randolph some sort
of the interest which used to hang around
Mr. Disraeli. Ho stimulates curiosity and
compels attention. Some may dislike him
n good many do for ha is too brilliant nnd
too successful to please the medio-
crltes , but , like him or dislike
him , you must listen to him.
Ho always has an original way * of putting
things , and is sure to strike some flro out of
the dullest discussion. So It was to-day.
Thrro was at first a silence when ho rose ,
followed after a moment's ' hesitation by
chcors from his own sido. They have bo-
coma an unwonted souud in his ours. Ho
jocosely intimated that it was so loug since
lie bad addressed the house that ho was
almost .entitled to uslc for the indul
gence which ,1s invariably extended to
nuw 'members. This brought vit a
warmer cheer. Thus lightly and cheerfully
starting off , ho was soon in the middle of bis
subject , the whole house following him with
the deepest interest. Lord Randolph was
very soon launching some playful but trench-
cut sarcasms in the direction of Mr. Brad-
laugh. Undoubtedly Bradlaugb has bceu in
D goqd many lawsuits , but it docs not make a
'man u first rate lawyer. Lord Randolph
gently Intimated that oven the study of tlio
moat "mischievous book In the world , "
"ovcry man his own lawyer ,
would not do ; that ho pleaded for u little
iD. more merciful treatment for the tory party.
"Do not lecture us quite so much ; pivo us
III < the credit of knowing nt least enough to
understand you. " All this was received by
the houso'with much chuckling and gloating ,
BES.1 and it will do Mr. Br.vllaugh no harm if it
it/at cures him of the pedagogic manner of which
* > t Lord Randolph justly complained. With the
trs.1 Imntor which played like summer lightning
VeitJ nround the stalwart form of Mr , Brad-
laugh was mixed u good deal of solid
Mlotu. fact and argument. Presently came little
tioniT Mr. Pli-ton's turn. Hejbad talked darkly of
terrible . Ho had hinted
< H > k a cantastropho. oven
JTIOB lilt EM like Mr. Toots , of blood. This , from n
In. ) gentleman under five feet In height , cer-
atrotS tulnly has u somewhat ludicrous sound.
S Lord Randolph convulsed the house by
knocking Mr. PIcton down with wordi
etlilt longer tlmu himself. Ho had delivered a
Allortx otltiv necromantic , geomantlc , thoumaturglo
.ovr speech , and ns thono hoiwy missies
l or Hew arouned the bewildered Mr ,
P'lcton's bead , Lord. 'Randolph drew a
fearful picture of the good little man loading
the mob of Leicester out to resolution nnd
cntastrophics , amid the laughter of his
friends as well as of tlio tones. A few min
utOT more and Labouohoro came up for gen
eral derision. "Ho apucars to have went infer
for cheap ] acc republicanism and a general
nttomut to bring the throne and all who were
near or around It into disrepute. " Scarcely
anybody who had spoken yesterday escaped
Mr. Story came In for heavy punish
ment. Altogether , a more dashing am
Blushing speech was never delivered in the
house of commons , even by Lord Randolph.
And how the lories cheered. They always
do when their prejudices or tastes are skill
fully appealed to. Anybody might have
thought that Lord Randolph Imd at his buck
the entire tory party. It Included mon when
lio'Jmn helped to ofllco and who bear un uu
dying grudgd ngamst him.
As far as the solid part of the speech , it
will no doubt bo well wolgnod by the coun
rue. * * try. Some remarkable
very figures
[ Ulzzt. were pro
; i . duccd as to the amount spent at Sandrlghiim
lon'ft by the Prince of Wales In building dwellings
flog fa for the poor und improving the state of the
Cieath. i people all nround him. Also some still mon
tower - remarkable figures as to the coat of u mon
n.Holf- nroli In this country. Distributed over the
JltUltt iboxe * * whole population it amounts to U farthings
Tprlcft. per head. "Will you shed rlvora of blood
( B3 for that ! " naked Lord Randolph of Mr. Plo-
rodbr tun , wiio wusstlll too ooufusod by the bur-
'ia fotmg ho had received to make liny reply.
Undoubtedly the speech was a great parlia
mentary hit.
Among the very first men who run up to
Lord Randolph in the lobby and poured over
him n torrent of flowery and gushIng -
Ing congratulations was Sir John Pule.ston ;
"Splendid , delightful , beautiful , " so the
torrent rushed un. But what Sir John said
OOD ] In private may ba another and very different
ounf. Lord Randolph walked on recardless of
both styles of comment A tremendous ox-
odua followed the conclusion of lull speech.
At 8 o'clock there were not ton persons in
the house , wlion somebody suggested a count
by wuy of brine ing back the hungry mon who
had ruMiod oft for dinner. For two hours the
( uuil. imall fry and radicals had the field to them-
' Mlves , but they did not clean much from it.
I LI li'li- Mr , Lawson , son of the proprietor of thu
Daily Telcffrajih , thou made an onslaught
upon Mr. Labouchoro's amendment , greatly
to the disgust of his usual friends and neigh
bors on radical benches.
After him came Lord Hnrtlnglon with n
weighty and forcible speech , nnd then an
other Lawson , Wilfred , the professional
humorist ef his party. Ho alternately amused
and irritated the house. Ono or two unKltid
digs at Mr. Chamberlain made everybody
laugh. Ho quoted from a letter written by
Mr. Chamberlain when mayor of Blrmlng-
ham.on the occasion of ttio visit of the Prince
of Wales some years ago , in willed the
prince was compared to the Tlctibourno
claimant. Thcso are curses that como homo
roost. Mr. Chamberlain had probably
forgotten all about the insult which ho had
leveled at the prince , just as the prince has
iloubtloss forgiven It. Sir Wilfred also
boasts that the flower of the liberal party
would follow Mr. Labouchoro into the lobby
n the coming division , at which Gladstone
smiled faintly.
Is it not a little odd to too the radical
party clthor mooring openly nt the grand
old man , or flatly contradicting him , or doing
their utmost to brine him into derision )
Decidedly. The future radical loader , who
ever ho may be , will have no enviable task
before him to reconcile discordant factions.
The speeches of the night were these of
Lord Randolph Churchill and of Lord Hart-
Ington. Add Mr. Gladstone , nud wo have all
the contributions to the two nights debate
wtilch will bo worth referring to hereafter.
Mr. Goschcn wound up the discussion with
out throwing any now light upon it.
Mr. Lincoln , the United States minister ,
nnd Mr. Chauncoy Depow were in the diplo
matic gallery during : the evening. What did
Mr. Depow think of Sir Wilfred Lawson ns
a Jokistl Is ho prepared to strlko his colors
as ono of the wittiest of Americans to u man
of water and words ! Anyhow , with great
generosity , ho laughed occasionally nt Sir
Wilfred's offorts-unloss It wns at Sir Wil
fred himself a very delicate point to dccido.

LONDON , July 20. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to TUB BGR. ] The view of
Princess Louise's wedding presents took
place at Maryborough House this morning.
Tlio urand dintnc room presented a sight
such ns Marlborongh House never saw before
fore and such as has rarely been seen any-
wtiero. It was a spacious curiosity shop , a
storehouse of bric-a-brac and gems , which at
first quite dazzloa the unprepared observer
and loft him for quite u time so nonplussed
that a concrete study of the valuable offer
ings had to wait , for recovery from a general
effect that was rather stunaing. The
largo gifts were massed at ran
dom about the room. They con
sisted of n grand piano from
Ludy Leicester , inlaid writing desk , all
kinds of screens In metal , embroidery , mir
rors und gold ornamentation , largo gold and
silver trays , shields , bowls , cups , gold tea
sets , gold vases , busts , oto. , oil paintings ,
fancy furnltui e , rugs , bronzes , flower stands
and porcelain.
They were passed over in a second , however -
over , in favor of a long table running the
length of the apartment , covered with
smaller and more precious gifts so thickly
that the white cloth was scarcely to bo seen.
Tlio left hand side of the table for half its
length blazed with diamonds and all the most
precious stones. It was a confused mass
of tiaras , necklaces , bracelets , pendants ,
brooches and ear-rings , representing the
most valuatilo stones that the world's marKet
could furnish. There were diamonds
enough to comfortably equip a royal line
jeweler. An expert who was present , after
a careful estimate of the entire display , esti
mated the gifts in the precious stones alone
at between 100,000 and 200,000. The flrst
50,000 of tills was made by the presents of
Lord Fife , the Rothschilds ana the Prince
and Princess of Waleswhile the largo num
ber of fancy stones representing values
made the total estimate seem small rather
than largo.
Lord Fife's present to the bride consisted
of u tiara and two necklaces. The tiara was
a mass of diamonds , aline of large pear-
shaped stones running nround its entire
frontChanging and shimmering in pear
shaped openings. About the tnrco on top
was a line of diamonds , the point consisting
of pear-shaped diamonds. Inverted pen
dants wore surrounded by a beautiful and
fragile open work , fronted with diamonds ,
the whole being ono of the most artistic and
valuable pieces in all England. The neck
laces wcro together in the name casket. The
largest was a string of the purest diamonds ,
the smallest being the size of a pea and the
largest , along the front , as largo us a six
pence. The inner necklace was of smaller
blucstono nnd gem diamonds , so rare and so
perfc'ct that the small necklace urobnbly
vied with the larger one in value.
Tlio tiara from the Prince and Princess of
Wales was in narrow lanco-sliapod beads of
diamonds , striking from its simplicity and
its brilliancy. It can bo turned over and becomes -
comes u pendant necklace. It is two inches
deep In trie center and Is graduated off to a
depth of half an inch on each side. The or
naments are pear-shaped , alternated
with little spike * containing smaller
brilliants , and the central one
contains nine stones , while .the end ones con
tain only three , and the whole is mounted on
n row of single stones.
The necklace from Mr , and Mrs , Lea and
Lord Alfred Rothschild was in small flower
patterns of diamonds and wonderful
cabochuu rubles , and in artistic beauty sur
passed oil others.
Seven other necklaces were sent , ono of
plain diamonds , from 112young lady friends ,
one of rubies , diamonds and sapphires in
three straight rows , from Sir Edward and
Lady Gulnucss ; ono of magnificent diamonds
mends and sapphires , from Mrs. Villobois ;

and Mrs. Oweu ,

flowers. Beside it wns un exactly similar
spray In throe pieces from Sir Albert Sas <
soon , Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Bassoon and Mr.

rose leaves and roses. The Duke and Duchess
of Manchester sent a largo crescent , live

the most valuable single stones iu the col
lection were n lane cabochou ruby , from tlio
Duke and Duchess of Westminster , and
Burmese cat's eye , from Lord nud. Lady
Rothschild. How many thousands of guineas
each cost must have depended on the desire
of tlio purchaser and , the conscience of the
seller , UK either would bo difficult , if not Im
possible , to match. The ruby was set simply
u ft pendant surrounded by diamond
and a bljr cat's eye , which was
a luminous .ball o ! yellowish
green flro shining out most prominently.
Among all the gems was sot a watch in a

"I don't understand how this Wisconsin
man gets into the ciTsc , " Mr. Longcncckor
said. " 1 know nothing about It except what
is In the newspapers to-day , and this refer
ence to it In liakor's telegram. It Is very
peculiar. Hero is n prominent lawyer who
goes nil the way from Wisconsin to Winni
peg , presents himself thnro nud says ho Is
liurko's attorney , but rofnses to toll who
has employed him. I don't ' know what It
means except that this conspiracy roaches
far ami wide. It is u big thing. "
"Is there no way of llndlug out who em
ployed the now lawyer ! "
"No ; Kennedy Is not compelled to toll the
court who hlrod him. but a lawyer can
always toll who retained him with perfect
propriety. If relatives of LJurko engaged
Kennedy ho would probably tell it without
any hesitation. It is tlio jailor wiio has the
prisoner in custody who must bo
satlsllcd as to the genuineness of
a lawyer's representations buforo ho will
pomilt htm to see the prisoner. They are
very strict about such mutto'rs i"n Canada ,
and ivcnnody must have shown that ho was
duly authorized to nctboforo ho was allowed
to see Uurko at all. The police authorities
have detectives at Wiunluo ? who wntcli
every arrival and note every stranger who
comns into the town. IJurko's lawyers are
closely watched also , to see whom they com-
mil nl en to with , in the hope of discovering a
cine that will indicate who is backing the
defense. Kennedy's nppoaranco must huvo
taken everybody up there by surprise , but it
is thought that the dotootivos will Und out
who visited him before ho loft his Wiscon

NKW Yoiuc , July 20. Tlio ofllclalfl of the
Pachlo Mall Steamship company notified the
Transcontinental association that unless the
subsidy from the railroads is increased they
will cut rates nnd take nil the freight they

has refused to allow the differential rate to
the Canadian Pacllo Is considered n confirma
tion of this bellof. The Transcontinental
roads Intimate that they tire wilting to divide

Pacific 0 pur cent , nnd dispatches from Chicago

wns willing to agruo to it If the Canadian

duly notified previous to the coming of the

within easy distance of the agency. Kurly
this morning pollcemon were sent out Into
the camps to call tlio Indians together
In council to moot the commissioners.
Owing to thu scattered position of
thu cnuips the council did not

The council , us usuiil. wns opened by the
ngont , Major McLuughliu , In n fo\v appro-
liriato romarkn , Introducing the commission
ers by iniino to the Indians , briefly toiictilng
upon the reputation oai-li hud acquired in the
white man's hind. Ho was followed by Gov
ernor Fester , whoprocccdod to report his ex
planation of the bill , touching particularly
upon the features of the bill which have to
do with the rights of the Suntces and the
prices which are to bo puld for tlio land. Ho
concluded with the following friendly ad
visory talk :
"Kvory intelligent Indian must see that
sooner' or later ho must adopt tl.o ways of
the whlto man. The whites man wants you
to do this , und will furnish the -means for
you to do so as fast as you possibly can. I
have met ninny of you during the past two
months , and I ilnd among you many bright
minds which only need education to make ,
thorn fully equal to our brightest minds
among us. I hope to see the day when all of
your young men can read and write nnd
transact all of the business lilte the
whlto man. When I wns a boy
this country was called Uio Great American
desert , and contained only about 1IK ( ) ) whlto
men and over 11)0,000 ) Indians. To-day I find
only about 50,000 Indians and nearly 1,000,000
of whlto people in this country. As you
must know , this will bo fatal to your retiif-
tlon of all this land , nnd us your friend I
como hero to tell you Unit you ought to lie-
copt this Dill as the best that ever will bo
oflered to you for your acceptance. I thluk
this will tie the hist commission that will
ever visit you. The white man will surely find
some way to got your lands. Wo want
you to calmly discuss this before you decide ,
and , not like another agency , dccido bcforo
wo como. "
Ilo was followed by Major \Vnrnor , who
made 1 } careful nnd complete cxnlanation
of the parts of the bill bearing upon the
questions of boundaries , prices and the sev
erally provision. Ho also gave a plain state
ment of tlio situation , present nnd proposed.
His remarks , strengthened by copious extracts -
tracts from speeches made at Washington
last fall by the chiefs present to-day , were
ver.v forcible and seamed to inako an Im
pression upon the audience. The present
prospect is not easily discoverable , but
seems V > bo unfavorable.

This story could hardly bo believed , hence
the committee. Yesterday the delegates vll'
itcd some houses in Hester and adjacent
