LONDON , July 27. On the Rovcrnmcnt pro

nnd for the divisions of this week wcro the
new and final clauses , the schedules and the
The galleries of the House were filled with
ticrsons expectant of an exciting scene nt
theclosoof the committee's labors. Few
members were absent.
The proceedings early in the evening were
tame enough until U : I. . Then Joseph Cham
berlain rose lo deliver the final broadside of
the opposition , He was still snfarting under
the lush which Mr. Gladstone swung on
Tuesday evening. Ho referred to the course
of the prime minister in u scornful manner ,
binl denounced the dubato of Iho bill under
the 'Closure ' rule us a farco. The bill had
been changed In its most vital features ; still
no debate was regarded as necessary , since
whatever was altered In the bill was always
found perfect bv the ndherunls of Iho prime
minister. "Tho prime minister calls , 'Black , '
and his adherents sny good , " said the
speaker. "The prime minister calls , 'White,1
nnd they say il is heller , j Union laughter. )
It is always the voice of God. Never sincu
the time of Herod lias there been such "
Nturt of tliu llow.
Mr. Chamberlain cot no further , for with
his lialt-iinlshod reference there came from
the nationalists such a roar of indlirnntlon
as has not been hoard in thu House since the
days of Parnoll.
Mr. Chamberlain tried to talk on , but his
volco was inaui'.lblo 15 tlio members on the
next bench. Shrill yells of oxi'cratlon from
the Irish sounded above the uproar. Then
T. P. O'Connor sprang to his feet and , leanlmr
toward Mr. Chamberlain , shouted , "Judas ! "
KO loudly that tliu epithet could bu heard
throughout the House. The rest of the
Irishmen caught up the cry , and for half a
minute shouted , "Judas" in a chorus.
Meantime the clock struck 10. The chair
man tried to put the closure , but his volco
could not bo heard.
Then came a scene unprecedented in
parliamentary history. Mr. Mellor gave , in
a weak voice , the customary directions.
The conservatives , however , flatly refused
to quit tlio houso. Gibbs , Bowles and
Ilanbury shouted lo tlio chairman that lie
must first call Mr. O'Connor to order for
bavliiL- called Mr. Chamberlain names. Mr.
Mellor protested that he had not heard the
epithets in question. Tin ; members crowded
forward In excited groups , slinking their
fists and shouting their demands.
Lord Randolph Churchill and Sir Kdward
Clarke got hold of Mr. Gibbs and starled
him for Hie front bench that ho might cluci-
dulu Iho cutisu of llio row to Mr. Mollor. In
the general jostling Gibbi was so pushed
about that hu gave up his purpose.
They Struck lit livery Ilonil.
IMcnntltno half of the unionists had
climbed to the benches nnd wcru shouting ,
" " " " Others in
"gag , "gagl" were struggling
tlio aisles or between the benches witli radi
cal , liberal , or Irish antagonists. Curses ,
yells uf pain and gross insults were heard on
John Ijogan , liberal , ran down to tlio first
opposition bencli and began upbraiding Kd
ward Carson , a lory. As lie shook his list
under Mr. Carson's nose , George Wyndliam
nnd William Fisher Jumped lo thcubsistuncu
of their party colleague , seized Mr. Log in
by tlio neck , throw him to the floor headfirst
nnd then humlled him under n bench.
Somebody smashed Tim Hcaly's high hat
down over his eyes. Healy tore off Ihu hat
nnd sprang into the aisle in full lighting
posture just as Mr. Ilanbury. still shouting
that the chairman must name Mr. O'Connor ,
was trying to got by. Mr. Ilanbury was
knocked over a bench by thu force of tlio
collision before Mr. Ilouly got in a blow.
A free light then broke out at the gang
way Tlio center of it was William Red
mend , Purnollltc" , who had taken advantage
of the general cunfuslon to push over
Colonel Sanderson , the champion of the men
of Ulster. Sanderson was rescued and led
tliu attack on tliu Parncllif's.

space between llio front benches wr.s
filled with a slruggllng , cursing mass I I
members , striking , clawing and upsulimg
each oilier. The surgeant-at-arms was
powerless. Eventually Mr. Gladstone bogged
Kdward Murjorlbunks , a sturdy liberal , to do
Bomuthing to stoi > tlio light. Mr. Murjori-
banks dug his way through llio bolllgnrcnts
nnd by repeated appeals in thu name uf the IL.
premier succeeded in stemming the conflict.
Colonel Sanderson emerged llrst from the
croud of lighters. Ho was holding a hunch
of kcyeK to his lilack uyo. Others followed
in a more or less damaged condition.

Mr. Gladstone , silling upright , had
watched the scene with inllained face and
nn expression of sorrow , Indignation and as
tonishment , which will never no effaced from
the memory of Ihoso observing it.
Chairman Mellor sent for Speaker Pool as
BOOH as order wan restored. When the
speaker entered several conservatives rose
nnd pointing to Mr. Gladstone , exclaimed J.
Tilore sits tliu author of it all. "
Whllo Mr. Gladstone , Mr. Malfour and Mr.
Mellor conferred as to what should bu done
the combatants were comparing notes. Not

handling. Tlm Healy had received a hard

poried to Mr. Pcol , as speaker of the House ,
what had occurred. Mr. Mellor spoke in a

give satisfaction for the lighting which has
taken place there. Also to punish the oftl-
cials who are responsible fur the Hclillng ,
and to pay an Indemnity to the families of

Besides this Slam has expressed her will

LONDON , July 7. In the House of Lords
this evening the earl of Itosubcry an
nounced that lie could not make n full report
concerning thu Siamese affairs until he bad
heard from I ord DutTeiln in Paris. Tlio carl
assured the house that ho had no rcluctancn
. to take tlio members into his conllcence , but
he could not give tlio desired information
solely because M. Dovcllo had not been able
to receive Lord Dtillcrin until yesterday. He
added that it might bo desirable to- again
define the altitude of tlio government. From
the outsut Great Hrltnin had refused lo enter
into the dispute , upon the merits of which the
government did not feel called upon to express
an opinion. It had confined Itself to
providing for the safety of British lives and
interests in Bangkok. It was hardly neces
sary to state that the British government
from the beginning sedulously avoided uiv-
ing any advice to Siam , beyond the occasions
when she had asked for It , but Great Brit
ain hud urged her to make terms as quickly
ns possible with her uowerful neighbor.
Nevertnoless tlio British government was
by no moans indifferent to the events that
are now passing In Siam. .Great Britain had
first place in the great commercial interests
there ; her shipping amounted to 87 per
cent of tlio tonnage and her trade to 1)3 ) pur
cent of thu total value. For this roasca he
regretted that Franco doomed that a blockade -
ado was necessary. Tnis blockade might
raise some questions of international law ,
but Great Britain bad not yut buen formally
notified of its establishment and perhaps it
was not too much lo hope that tliu
nc'-essity might yet bo averted. The pro
posed territorial arrangements attendant
upon the dispute involved matters that con
cerned Great Britain. The government was
glad to believe that Franco was no loss alive
than Great Britain to the value of Siamese
Independence , regarding it as-11 matter of
importance that Franco and Great Britain
should not have conterminous frontiers , bo-
causc that would involve both countries in
great military expenditures and create lia
bility to panic.
Tliu statement of the parliamentary sec
retary was otherwise in olVuct similar to tlio
ono made in the House of l ords by Ean
Itutnori ol u Sol t It'mtMit.
The Pall Mull Ga/ctto this afternoon says :
Wo learn from authority deserving of tlio
lilghrst respect that tlio < Vnnco-.SIatnose

IUNOKOK. July 27 , Notice was given today
of the blockade by tlio French Hoot. Out
going vessels have been warned that they
must clear from Bangkok and tliu Tsh Si
Chang before Saturday or submit to deten
tion. Thu blockade will extend along the
entire norlli coast of the Gulf of Siam. Tliu
French lleet , with M. Pavie , lias gone to Koli
The general expectation Is that early in
Atieust llio French Hoot will attack Bangkok
and land KJIIIU fl.OJJ men. There Is litilo
doubt bore that Franco's purpose is K > maku
Slam a Frunch colony.
The Siamuso government Is exceedingly
anxious to avoid opun warfare. When the
gunboat 1.11 tin was at the Men am bar early
I Ins morning thu foreign minister sent to M.
1'uvlo n note to the effect that thu king and
his advisers were most anxious lo maintain
pence. All such efforts , however , are bu-
[ loved by the Knglish residents to bu In vain.

CiiiCAiio. July 27. The Phoebe Couzlns
faction of the board of lady managers gave
out a statement in regard to the various
controversies between it and the board. It
states that Mrs. Meredith , chairman of tlio
committee on awards nnd of tlio executive
committee of the board of lady itnanagcrs
which attempted lo depose Miss Couzlns ,
was charged by Miss Cunning
ham of South Carolina with duplicity
In tlio settlement of affairs. Miss Cunning
ham , striving to substantiate the charge
was refused a hearing by a ruling by Iho
president of the board , Mrs. Potter P.iltnur.
Mrs. Mall , secretary of the committee on
awards , attempted to sustain Miss Cun
ningham , but was also refused a hearing.
.Mrs. Hall gave Miss Cunningham her dupo-
right of free speech and right uf defense , bad
broadened in their experience and could no
longer bo led or coerced by tlio faction which
had previously hold sway , and which was
led by Mrs. Palmer and Mrs. Meredith. My
a large majority Mrs. Martlott's resolution of
censure \vasluid on the table.
Continuing , the statement charges that
the majority ot the board , against the pro
test of tliu minority ( the Couzlns faction ) ,
has permitted a wattelul extravagance in
salaries and sinecures , nnd the minority now
proposes to ascertain the exact status of tlio
llnnnccs of Ihe board. It is said that the
salary list covers nearly $3.OUO ( ) and that ex
penditures which thu directory ouijlit to as
sume are being charged to the United States
treasurer. The board was stampeded out of
town last May because of the attempt to
reach tlio facts , but now it proposes to have
n full showing of tno itcinUed account.
Miss Cou/cns created consternation at the
meeting today by challenging the votes of
the nine members from tliu city of Chicago.
She claimed that they were merely honorary
members and had no executive powers.

Nr.w YoitK. July ST. During the morning
hours of business at the Stock exchange the
nervous tension was not. so pronounced as
yesterday. The fact that the imwcrful
Standard Interests had come In posscsiton of
the KvuitHVlllo & Terra Haute property
relieved nil apprehension from that quarter
uiul t bo comparative tlrmncss of that stock
in tlio market put money lenders nt ease.
Another thing that helped to restore eon II-
iienco was Iho decision of the governing
committee of the Stock exchange not to oloso
the board , ns was suggested yesterday by
some of the operators who lost their heads.
Probably the most important developments
of the morning , However , wore the engage
ment of $1,000,000 gold in London by Luzard
Frcrt's ami the further drop tn the rates of
sterling exchange. The heaviness of ex
change encourages the hope that the move
ment of gold from lOuropo will assume large
proportions In iho early future. A move
stable money market would be of great as-
Mstnnco to intending importers , for it is
dlnicult tn * calculate upon the result of n
shipment with call loans at 5 per cent per
annum ono minute and ! * ' per diem and

looking fora largo tuition , movement of Iho
precious metal. Money at the Stock ex
change opened ut.-V per cent per diem and
Interest , which Is equal to fil , ° ff per cent pur
annum. I .a ter there was a decline to10 per
cent. It is Idle to talk of a quotation for
time money and mercantile paper as long us
call loans call for the rates given above.

Hank ofliciuls stuto that shipments of cur
rency to tliu interior will equal yesterday's
total. Tlio rates of domestic exchange on
Now Yoik at interior points rather corrobo
rates this theory.
A feature of the day's operations at the
exchange was the purchases of securities for
investment. The movement was the heavi
est in voars nnd did much to steady the list.
Ono broker , who makes n specialty of trad-
inuin small lots , said tint up to 11 o'clock ho
had sold $ HKJOOI ) worth ol broken lots. Thcro
are at least' n do/.en other brokers in tills
line and it is safe to assume that they did
their share of Hie business. It seemed as if
the ticker would never stop recording trades
in odd lots. These purchases are unusually
important now , as it means that just 10
much slock is being taken out of Iho street
ami nut in tin uoxcs. The investor abroad
has also awakened to tlio fact that some
American securities are wortli having and
in consequence every I-iondon house hero
had i orders to liny. The cable was kept
bus.\ all day long with orders and reports of
if purchases. i Up to t o'clock consorvntlvo
estimates put the forciun purchases at 40-
000 shares , including St. Paul , Krle , At-
chisun , Louisville & Nashville , Northern Pa
cific common and preferred , Ontario & West

day's steamers will take out over 75,000

Tlio clearing house committee was iu

nity to start the report thai a large bank
was in trouble and the announcement of an
issiio of $ ltt , : > 0.000 of clearing house curtl-
Jicates lent some strength to this report.
hater the amount of certificates was said to
bo only 150.000 , but at the end of the incut-
ing the cleaving house ollU'ials stated that
thoorlgiiml amount , of $ li"iO,0)0 ! ( ) was riglit.
Their long session , they said , was dun to
thu large amount of work boforu them in
the way of shifting loans , caused largely by
the great depreciation in prices yesterday.
They emphatically deny the story of a bunk :
being in trouble , nnd said that , every bank in
the clearing liouso and , as lar as they know ,
every outside bum : in llio city , was in good
shape. Those who mot at the clearing
house were ail of llio opinion that the situa
