Nov. l.-(Special Cablegram to The Bee.) An Interesting debate n devo lution took place this week before a Crowded audience at the opening meeting of the annual session of the Solicitors' Ap prentices' Debating society. The speakers included Mr. T. M. Hesiy, M. I., Mr. T. W. Russell, M. P., Mr. Lindsay Talbot Crosbie and Captain Bhawe-Taylor. It was expected that the two latter gentlemen would answer the attorney general's ques tions about the genesis of the Reform as sociation, but they preferred to Indulge In generalities. Captain Shawe-Taylor was rambling and obscure. Mr. Talbot-Crosblo said that the association had been attacked by a strange combination of the Tlmea and the Freeman'a Journal. All Irishmen were agreed In recognising the crown as the cen tral Idea of the Imperial government, and therefore they were fall loyalists. He sug gested that In any scheme of home rule Ireland should have a relation to England like that of the Canadian provinces to the Dominion government to England. It could thus retain a reduced number of Irish members In the Imperial Parliament. He proposed that the Irish legislature sug gested In the Dunraven scheme should con sist of seventy nationalists and of fifty eight unionists. Including representative peers. ' Mr. T. W. RussellvM. P., said that the Dunraven scheme was impracticable, but that a scheme of devolution applicable to the whole of the United Kingdom must be created If Parliament was to continue to live. As a democrat he objected to going back to nominated boards, and if he had no other alternative he would rather trust the people and have the real article at once. He suggested that all Irish' matters in Parliament should be sent t-j a standing committee of all the Irish members. Mr. T. M. Healy, M. P., nald that of all the events connected with devolution he had been moot gratified by the secession of Lord Rossroore from the Orange society. The voices of such Irishmen woud be more potent to secure national freedom than the most strident voices of nationalist poiiU elnna. He wondered what reasons Iriah unionists found for gratitude to the British government, and he asaured them that If the present atate of thing? should con tinue they would be steadily i stripped of their privileges and possessions In favor of the nationalist . majority. On the other hand, unionists and Protestants might safely truat themselves to their fellow countrymen. An Irish parliament would put no tax on- the thirty-nine articles. The Interests and religion of an Irish Protestant would always be sacred In the house of Henry Qrattan. Mr. P. A. McHugh, M. P., In . the course of an address to a nationalist gathering at Kllrush, aald that the minimum of the Irish demand was an Irish legislature with an executive responsible to It, If the introduc tion of the new elements into Iri?h national politics meant that the felon's cap of James F. X. O'Brien was to be exchanged by "rebel" Cork for the coronet of Lord Dun raven, then in bis Judgment neither Cork nor Ireland would approve of the new ev- olutlon. The duty of Irish nahorfaTsVas I to maintain their organisation; It was no.l time for running after wlll-o'-the-wlspa or confuslng the public mind by newfangled I and fantastic panacea The cause of Ire- 1 land was never more hopeful than at tho I present moment, and. if th. people of the . j ... .j. country pursuea tne o.a poucy on the old . line, kuci w aa uuiiuii uivio Wl mm emu that the early future would witness the re alisation of their legitimate demands: PARLIAMENT NEEDS A CHANGE Members of that Body Speak of Pres ent Conditions with Dis favor, LONDON.

The speaker was Mr. Lloyd-Gec-ge, M.

His ran irks about the fairness of the assembly concluded a speech In which he endeavored to portray Parliament from the point of view of the new member, the JournallHt and the "country cousin." "Where is Mr. Balfour?" was the almost Inevitable question which the "cousin" puts to the member showing htm around.

The only reply that could be given was thut Mr. Htaly sometimes sat on Mr. Redmond." Mr. Lloyd-George's principal complaint gbout the House was that It waa not a business assembly. "There Is necessity for very great changes In the methods of the House of Commons," he declared. Sir Frederick Mllner, M. P., told a meet ing of farmers at Worksop this week that the longer he sat In the House of Com mons the less he appreciated the honor. It was the very last place in the world, he said, to go to in the expectation of see ing any business done. It was rapidly be coming' a mere talk shop, and the rubbish talked there was a disgrace to any assem bly of bublness men. He hoped both parties would realize the harm done by the tactless which disgraced tbe House last session. Welcome O'Uonorsen Rosen. QUEENSLAND, Ireland, Nov. IS.

TARIFFS WOULD HELP GREAT BRITAIN Writer Says that (osstrj Mlaht Get Into Position to Knlnrge Its Markets In I silted States. LONDON, Nov. 19. (Sreclal Cablegram to The Bee.) Mr. A. Moseley has prepared, at the request of the tariff commission and for their use, a memorandum giving a short history of American tariff. In this paper the author attempted o Bet out the course of American legislation on the aubject nnd to show the tesu'.ls that have followed increases or decreases In the tariff. The period from 1S33 to 1SS0, he suggests, should be examined In de tail by the commission, because "It bears ami 1h and eloquent testimony to the whole sale ruin nnt' disaster that fulmwed lh lowering of the tariff, reducing tho whole population to a state of beggary and neml starvatlon." The tariff law that went into force on the day that Lincoln became pres ident, waa, ho shows, the founding of a new era for the United Ftates. Mr. Moseley's review of the history of American tariff legislation leads him to the following, among other conclusions: With regHrd to the practical lessons to be drawn there can be little doubt that with a tariff In this Country we should be In a position to liaigRln witn the unltei States, and ao secure a more favorab.e market for many articles that we now export to her, although the writer does not believe that the result would be any great modification of her manufacturing system. On the Question of the possibility or like llhood of the United States reverting to lower tarirrs, tnus enabling tne unirea KInedom to flood the American murket with our goods, the writer would answer Biost emphatically, no, the whole of his investigations leauing to an entirely uppo site conclusion. Lsstly, as to the effect of protective tarirrs in tne Lnneu states in minding up her present astonishing state of prosper ity. It cannot be too strongly emphasized that rree trade and low tarirrs have, throughout the history of that nation, been accompanied by disaster and ruin, whilst every measure or a really protective char, acter has broucht prosperity In Its train whilst the fact that this has occurred not once but many times removes it from the possibility or Deing merely colnduenc or attributable to other causes than the operation of the varying tu riffs from time to tune in force.

Earl Brownlow presided. ttnd a letter was read from the Duke of Rutland, in whtch his grace wrote: "In Bome Influential quarters a policy Is ad- located which, while protecting certain ln- d8trlc from unfair competition, will leave 'h9Kret ot rtcultura exposed .Tnh' Ttn "e ,'n' Jurloua as we hold It to be, is at leist Im- pHrUtt, .

SILK WEAVERS ARE HARD HIT British Mannfuclurer Talks of the Condition of the Export ( Trade. LONDON, Nov. U. (Speolal Cablegram to The Bee.) The manufacture of silk . Is among the British Industries which have declined owing to hostile tariffs and the cheap labor of the continent. Striking facts and figures bearing upon the subject were given this week by Mr. Benjamin Warner, head of tho firm of said: Fifty years, ago there were 30,000 looms In Spilanelds, providing a living for lUu.OUO of our people. Today there are not a couple of hundred looms. Silk to the valus of from 15,000,000 to 16,0(10,000 comes Into this country annually British makers could produce the bulk of this silk, and sell It at a reasonable price were the home markec not flooded with foreign productions made In countries where the highest wages paid to skiilej workers does not exceed 14s or las par week. America used to be a good customer for British silk. Now It makes silk to the value of K 27.Otio.000 per annum Itself and from being dependent upon us has become one of our keenest competitors. Only the largest firms with plenty of capi tal behind them, can hold their own. Sev eral Arms among them one that had been established for a century and a half have had to give up the struggle within the past few months. The result is that weav ers, draughtsmen, loom builders and card cutters are being driven out of the Indus try, and the knowledge and workmanship which won for British silk its high reputa tion are being lost, Hit. Warner readily acknowledged the efforts of royal princesses and of society leaders to keep the Industry alive. It la only to society, tho church and tha stage that the silk manufacturers can now look for support.

LONDON. Nov. 19.-(8peclal Cablegram to The Bee.) Dr. A. Cotterell Tupp, late accountant-general to the government of India, has addressed some criticisms on the abstract of a letter from the British Cotton Growing association, published In the Times recently. He says: "The association says It Is convinced that the government of . India should not delay one moment In taking the matter Into Its hiimls. 1 am not convinced of any thing of the kind. In fact. I am convinced of the exact contrary. First, because tho government of India has taken thia matter In hand for the last thirty years, to my knowledge, and has tried to obtain and dis tribute better cotton seed to the Indlun cultivator. Its efforts have not been suc cessful, for the simple reason that It la Impossible for a great government to see the minutes of carrying out a project like 'thli. The only method possible for the gov ernment of India la to Issue circulars to the local governments saying that It wishes attention to be directed to this mutter and that the local officials should try to ob tain better seed and distribute It to tho pensanta. It may or may not allot special funds for the purpose; It would more prob ably throw the burden on provincial rev enues. The provincial governor In a few cases might take up the matter with sonic vigor, Init In most caes, overwhelmed with work which might naturally seem to him of greater Importance he would rcstrl-t him self to sending on the circular to Ms com missioners, with n request that attention should be directed to It. Tho collectors of districts In turn, when they received the rliov.l.-ir. would send It on to the talslldars, or sub-collectors (natives), and would re quest them to do what they could In tho matte.-. "As I spent nearly thirty years In India, and was for the last twelve years accountant-general to the government of India In various provinces and in all three presidencies, I may, perhaps, bo allowed to suggest possible methods of procedure which are more likely to attain the object which we all have In view -than mere ap peals to the government would be. I would suggest that they should form commercial companies to carry out their objects. These could without dlffl-ulty be made to pay their way, and It would probably be best to have one parent company In England and branch companies In each province of India, aa the circumstances and conditions vary ao much In different provinces. Tha object of the companies would be to, pro cure the heat cotton seed obtainable and then to try what kinds would ault each province and even each district In India. When this was once determined the only remaining requisite would be to purchase the seed aa cheaply aa possible and to dis tribute It to peasants, who would enter Into engagements to sow' It on their land and to aell the resulting cotton to- the com panies at prices to be fixed by agreement or by the market rates for similar cotton. In this way I have no doubt that In n few years a very perceptible Improvement in the quality of Indian cotton and a very considerable Increase of Its quantity might be easily obtained." FLOATS-MODEL OF NOAH'SARK Danish Shipbuilder Finds Biblical Craft to Have Been Bollt on Scientific Lines. COPENHAGEN, Nov. ID. (Special Cable gram to The Bee.) A trial ,trlp was made this week on the sound of a model Noah's ark. The vessel, constructed by tho engi neer. M. Vogt, aa nearly as possible In ac cordance with the description give i In the Bible narrative, Is of 200 tons burden. 1 The coat of building has been defrayed by the Cnrlberg naval fund. After consulting a number of distin guished Hebraists M. . Vogt followed the outlines of the most ancient representation known of the ark, which are given on an A pa mean coin, dating SOO years B. C, now the property of the Stockholm museum. He made his model thirty feet in length, five feet wide nnd three feet In height, tho entire dimensions averaging about one tenth the actual size of Noah's ark. Interpreting the Hebrew word "sohar " not as light, which la the usual meaning as signed to It. but as a amoke escape, the model waa further equipped wlthi a chim ney. The ark, with a number of university profeasors, engineers, government officials and Journalists on board, aa well aa Its designer, M. Vogt, behaved aplendldly In the waters of the sound, skimming grace fully over the waves and veering with the chsng'.ng winds with an ease as though worked by a propeller.
