DBXVDII , Colo. , Aug. 8.-The population
of this city was increased nearly 85,000
today nntl still the rush continues. Probably
one-quarter of this number wcro tumplnr
hnlgnU , the rest were visitors , attracted by
Iho conclave and the low rates.
The scones about the union depot , where
eastern and local trains arrived about nvcry
fifteen mlnutuu , were lively beyond descrip
tion. In many of the trains many passoti-
gcrs had stood for hundreds of miles. Uut
the itnlghts were comfortable , for they occupied
pied special "coaches nnd In many oases spe
cial trains. They wcro accompanied by
their wives , daughters and lady friends , the
female folks in their bright costumes nddlng
to the itttiactlvcncss of the scene. The
depot yards and streets of the clly were
filled with the strains of musluund marching
knights all day.
The Crowds were well handled and every
body was given good accommodations. The
local knights looked after .their visiting
brethren nnd the citizens' committee looked
nftor other visitors who were not fortunate
enough to have friends hero. They still
hove 5,000 rooms to let , but these will prob
ably all bo Hlled by Wednesday. Tr-ero are
mill In reserve rooms which will bo given up
by prlvnto residents If absolutely necessary ,
for no ono who comes hero will bo allowed
to RO away disappointed.

JCM containing the families of r.uich.nen who

away , occasionally passed through the
iticots. These people are supplied with
camping outfits , and uavo put up hundiods
of tents in the outskirts , where they will
live during Ibo conclave. Then there Is a
plcturcsquo cowboy band on hand. The
leader carries a Wlncncstcr Instead of a
baton and his commands are given by the
crack of this arm. Tnls band was on escort

the second day after the attempted robbery
of Urn Omaha train near Kasota , five weeks
ngo.This clrcumslnnco , together with his fight
with ofllccrs tttVlsallu , Cal. , leads to the
suspicion that ha wus one of tha parties who
tigured In the Kasotn affair. It was given
out shortly niter this that the robbers were
In tlio city for two days after the attempted

before dissolution under proclamation of

now to conlinuo Us session nt this unusual
period of the year. The hdpo was expressed

Gladstone nrrlvod In London this morning

A petition has been lodged against the re
turn of William Hodmond , Parnuloltu , who
was elected by 410 votes in County Glare.
After the queen's speech was read
both bouses look n roccss until 4 o'clock.
When the IIouso of Commons reassembled
the speech wns again road to that body.
The last portion was groated with groans by
the liberals.
Barton , conservative member for mid-
nrmagh , moved the address lu rnply to the
quean's speech.
.Salisbury Government llclnpr Weighed.
Before tbo opening of the debate on the
nd dross In rnplv to the speech from the
throne , Mr. Gladstone entered the house and
took tbu oath. Ho was heartily cheered by
his supporters.
Neither the spocch of Mr. Barton , In mov
ing the address , nor that of Mr. Cross , who
seconded the nddross , attracted any atten
tion. The bouse was listless until II H.
Asqulth , Q. C. . Glndstonlan member for the
east division of Fifoshiro , rose to move the
amendment declaring that the house had
no confidence in the government. Ho
wus greeted wllh loud nnd prolonged cheer
ing by the liberals. lie declared that parlia
ment had mot for the obsequies of a dead
majority. The house ought not to dally over
practical questions , but 'should ns spcedllv
us possible place in power a. government
representing the decision of tbo country as
expressed nt tha polls.
Mr. Thomas Butt , Gladstonlan member for
Morpolh , secretary of the Northumberland
Minors Mutual association , socondcd the 110-
confldcnco amendment. Ho contended that
the question of homo rule tor Ireland must
dominate all other questions to which the
liberal party was pledged.
Mr. uoacben , chancellor of the exchequer ,
said ho hoped the house would at last hear
something definite about homo rule. Mr.
Gladstone , ho declared , could not longer
shirk explaining his homo rule scheme , nor
could Sir William Harcourtovad < unpleasant
questions by going out of tbo house instead
of responding to them.
Demanus of the Irish Party.
Justin McCarthy said that the Irish party
expected that coercion would cease when the
llbeiuls came into power. If the liberal gov
ernment's home rule bill did not satisfy the
people of Ireland there would bo nn
and of it. [ Conservative cheers. ) Ho
oeliovcd in Iba sincerity of the
llborul assurance that the homo rule bill
would ba kept in the front or their legisla
tion. The Irish party also wanted an early
measure for the relief of every ono of the
tenants and inquiring Into the cases of Irish
men wrongfully convicted of nffonsos against
the crown. Ho further desired that the term
of imprisonment of prisoners be shortened.
John Redmond said ho considered ll Iho
duty of every Irish mom bur to assist In oust
ing the present government. IIo could not
consent to Mr. Labouchero'n suggestion to
glvo the Newcastle program precodoncoovcr
the home rule question. IIo hoped that they
would not have to wait until February fo'r
tbo provisions of Mr. Gladstone's bill. It
was useless for the liberal party to llvo in a
fool's paradise. Tb&y were going to bo
placed in power by Irish votes and they must
fulllll their pledges.
Wiintud Tlio I'olley of n Party.
Mr. Goschon , In concluding his speech ,
denied that homo rule was the paramount
question which had boon submitted to the
country in the recent campaign , but ho do-
clarcd'tliat It. had occupied In n large num
ber of electoral addresses a very subordinate
plnco. [ Cries of "hoar , hoar. " | The Irish
members sromed to think that they had
nothing to do but evict the present minis
ters lu order to got homo rulo. [ Cheers
from Irish members. ] Did tha mover of
the amendment to the address In reply
to tbo speech from tha throne know the pol
icy of his party regarding this snmo homo
rulot Beyond the loader of Iho opposition
and &oino fuw of his followers nobody know
of tbo exact nature of the moasuro. 1'lioy
had now arrived at a stage where tha House
of Commons was exorcising its prerogative
peculiarly , in selecting mon whose measures
would coma afterwards. [ Laughter. ] If
tucso measures were adopted by tbo
House of Commons , then the house of peers
would sbaro with the other house tha re
sponsibility for their measures. When those
measures are presented to tbem thcro will
bo no difllculty in criticising thorn. Perhaps
then tbo liberal lords would abandon their
present conspiracy of silence. Then also the
peers would perform their duty wllh that
wisdom nnd decision upon which the bouse
established Its right and reputation in days
past. [ Cries of "Hoar , hoar. " I To the duty
thuf cast upon them they would have to pay
regard , as no mandate ou that question had
been before the country. The country was
against the principle of homo rulo. So If
homo rule wus passed It would bo by the
Irish majority coercing the JiritUh majority.
fClicors.J If thu unionists were ' defeated by
tbo Irish vote it would not bo th'o finaljtrlal.
Defeat would not moan thu dispersion of tbo
unionist forces. Tbo unionists would btlll
remain rampant against the forces of rapine
and disorder , which would throw themselves
In vain. [ Cheers. J

Karl Klmborly complained that this was

There was nothing In tbo speech , ho de

The duku of Devonshire ( Lord Hartlngton )
said tbo ilmo had arrived when effect was
about to bo given to thooplnloni proyalllnv
in tbo other house. In declaring that tha
country bad po confidence In the government ,
tbo liberal loaders ought to explain tha
policy they would adopt If returned to power.
The government would at all events hold

sections nf the opposition would combmo to
