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.

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.

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.
