6 SECOND EDITION SPECIAL M 0 11 N J N G E X PRESS. ' BY PRIVATE WIRE.) THE iNTiuXAl.lSTS AND THE PAE1S FUND. Telegraphing last eveaiug the Paris correspondent of the Daily Teltgraph says: Your Cork correspondent's telegram describing the consternation pro iuced in Nationalist ciroles by the announcement that -Mr. Justin M'Carthy alter all niav not have absolute control of the .Vans fund has attracted attention here, anil I have succeeded in obtaining the opinions of several eminent legal authorities on this subject. Uho question is extremely complicated, but the nnti-l'arneliites seem to have been rather hasty in "jumping to the conclusion that because the i rench system differs from that in voue on yo::r side of' the water the heirs of -Mr. i'arn-U will be able to claim the management of half the money deposited in Messrs. Monroe's bank. This large sum is said to have beu lodged in the joint names of Mr. 1'arnell and Mr. M'Carthy, no mention being made of any trust. If this be really ttiecaseprcolnely the same measures were taken as would have been adopted in J-.ngland. Jt is .juite true that the system of trust does not ' prevail in France. To argue, however, that because trust is practically unknown in purely French law it is not recognised here is utterly iucorrect. .Numbers of Knglisii people and other foreigners have money invested iu T'rench and other stock, and in their cases the trust system iB admitted fully and absolutely. I" the course of a short conversation to-day with a tnembor of the firm of Munroe and Co., the American bankers with whom the funds of the Irish Parliamentary party are deposited, 1 ascertained that up to tbe present time they have received no intimation from any of the parties concerned relative to a withdrawal, partial or otherwise, of money in their hands. The tirm has not, therefore, had occasion as yet to Btudy the intricacies of tiio 1'renoh or English law on the subject. J'reneh law, in fact, is very accommodating in this matter so long of courBe aa the requisite proofs are forthcoming. Much of course depends on the question as to whether ilessrs. .Munroe will he satislied with the proofs which they may endeavour to bring in support of their recent claim, assuming indeed that such a measure will be (ound to bo necessary. It is believed by many of the anti-Parnelhtes evidently that no preliminary step was taken to show the bankers that the fund was deposited iu trust, and naturally it would bo matter of. the utmost interest to ascertain the conditions under which the money was lodged with Messrs. Munroe. On this subject the linn is as might be expected very reticent. At the outsot, however, much depends practically on the fact as to whether the bankers with whom tho i'aria fund was deposited are satisfied thoroughly witii the demonstration that it wa3 trust money. It is a matter of notoriety that it was regarded as such, but of course legal evidence is essential. Failing this proof the executors of Mr. Parneil if they were inclined to fight out t'uo quarrel might checkmate effectually their adversaries. If tho latter a e unable to prove tbat tbe Irish fund was deposited in trust and the executors of Mr. l'aruell assume an uncompromising attitude the latter will obtain control over half tho money thu3 invested, and will be in a position to sjnd it as they may deem proper. It is in the interests of tbe auti-J'arnellites to have the ijuestiou settled with the utmost possible despatch. CHINA. The Times correspondent at Singapoie. telegraphing yesterday, says: Advices from Shanghai cated the 3rd inst. Btato that all is quiet with tho exception of a small local disturbance in i'nkien. According to Shanghai reports, foreign .Ministers have broken off negotiations, and have announced that their Governments must act. MK.CHAJLBEIU.A1N AND HIS "NO rul'KUY" CUY. Mr. Chamberlain undoubtedly (says the Daily JVVirJ) wi.-hes we'.l to the Tory party and to tbe Tory lioveriuueat. He lias niiide himself the slave of the Tcrv Government. Yet bo uocs not seem to have been doing them god .orvice by his latest utterances. He spoke last night :it L!anbythr, in Cardiganshire, and he tjt'pan bis speech by a servile panegyric on Vw Tvrv Government, and Uu-u be went on to endeavour to persuade Nouconf-or'nists that they ought to raise me crv " nrj Popery. Mr. Chamtcrliiin has comedown in the political world indeed. He does not show to much r advantage when trying to revive the pari of L-rd George (.iordou. Poor Lr-i'd Ueoree tiordon bad two excuses to plead for hi:n. He was sincere and ho was insane. Mr. Chamberlain has all his wits about hiui. Ho may be sincere in his new opinions, but bis conversion has been rapid and ecaliar. He was the ally of the Irish national p.iriy a: a time when that party was very small in nuinter hud vet given no practical evidence that it represented the l ulk of the Irish people. Hut Ireland as a wlidi- was Catholic then just as it is Catholic now, and Mr. Clniniberlaiti the" u'l.l nnt think cf warning Welsh or other Nonconformists against tne terrors of Popery in polities. Mr. Chamlx-rUm h is started his julicy tar too late in the day. IllH ho Popery principle might, be an excellent pruiciple to trot out but tor tbe sin-p e fact that it is dead.

THE GALE Liovd's agency reports that the Norwegian barque llrid, Liverpool for Buenos Arres, witii coals, struck on Canon Kock, off Kearoy, county Down, and is a utal rock. The crew were saved.

A SOUTHERN COUNTY SEEN WITII NORTHERN EYES. (VEOH A COURKSPONDEKT. ) We are apt to smile at comparisons between the Jforth and South as somewhat fanciful and out of date in these days of railway oorapeti-tiou. We think that it is all vory well for tho poet to sing How brief the sun of sunvcier in the North, And brief the noon of beaucy in the South ! Wo who have travelled and who of us have ot f know that even in that wide variety of .North and South of which tho poet sings tho (inferences are often so disappointingly small that our imaginations aro driven sometimes to nolo in the diarios which wo intend to offer to a jaded publisher on our return such trifles as tho discrepancies of railway time or tho varieties of official incivility. If this bo truo when the comparison is between places as wide apart as Macedoti and Monmouth, if we, like the worthv Fluellon, can discover merely " rivers in both and salmons in both," what ciui be said when tho journey is only from the Cheshire plain to the Kentish weald, a matter of a few hours' railway u-aveUingir That bird of the summer visitor sees littlo or nothing to contrast there are tho rivers in both, and (Oh. memories of Frank Buckland and Charles Kingslov !) salmons in neither. But to the Northeriior coming south to live, or to tho Southerner seeking a home in the N orth country, the differences aro striking differences of con-tiiiuration, of course, and of climate, but also character, of dialect, and wo may go further still and sav of race, it, is true that wo should seek in vain for the old tribal distinctions of a bygone age. and yet a little close watching will discover, deep underneath the cosmopolitan, ever-shifting surface of the big cities and towns, a substratum that never changes or shifts its place. It is here, and also among tho stationary rural population, that wo must look for those provincial touches that are the survival of the old tribal distinctions. East Ariglia, as wo know well from Dr. Jcssopp, is like nothing save Kast Anglia ; and even in Kent, where the outside influences are stronger than perhaps in any other county, there ate ways ( call them Jutish if you will) which aro as unlike the ways of the East Anglian as they are foreign to tho habits of the Cornish miner, in whose land Celtic memories still linger. To pass from out the deep brooding shadows of Kinder Scout and the everlasting stillness of those great; purple-black hills that gather round the Peak, the sight of which for the first timo makes the heart stand still or leap with a throb of fear, to tho smiling, giowing sunniness of the garden of England, is like the transition from Bach to Jlendelssohn. To live iu thu pure serenity of tho mountains is to lose count of soil ; one's own small identity is swallowed up in the majesty around ; in thu South country the warm sun seems to make tho blood tingle " with the consciousness of cno's own existence, and wo rejoice simply at being alivo. The spring creeps slowly up the north. Just a faint haze of green over tho lurches maybe, a silvurv sheen over tho chestnuts, a fresh resinous smell, which we had forgotten during tho dead winter months, among tho firs, tho black buds of tho ash slowly filling and swelling, under tho trees a few faint primroses or hardy daffodils, and then a long dreasy waiting while tho black north-east wind holds its spell over the laud and tho ice-king reigns such is a ,'orthorn spring. In the South nature is more reckless and deliaut. All seems to buist into life at a touch. Scarce liavo tho first snowdrops pushed their eager heads through the soil than the violets aro up; quick on I their steps the larch hangs out its crimson j tassels, as though to welcome tho nightingale's return : and in another month ttio land is ablaze with tho mingled colours of apple and cherry blossom, gorso, and may. From February till late October this brightness of colouring lasts ; it is one of tho peculiar charms of the South. The tone deepens, that is all ; instead of tho blossom wo have the fruit; cherries, with their delicate gradations of red and pink, hang in rich clusters among the sombre leaves; apples, whoso tiuo russet browns seem dusted with gold ; deep purplo mulberries, ami in many a sheltered garden the delicate bloom of peacU and nectarine and gvapo ; and, over all. the sun and tho soft hazy blue of the truo summer sky. Away in the distance can bo traced tho soft rounded outline of the chalk hills, while deep down in tho valloys tho bright gold of the ripening grain throws into relief the Ion"' straight alleys trom which the hop poles shoot up, each with its garlaud of tender, delicate green. Along the line of the river tall English poplars rear their heads skyward and throw their protecting shadows on lurking trout in the placid stream below, while, fringing the bank, the quivering sallow and dainty silver birch play with the summer breeze. And as autumn steals almost imperceptibly up the tono deepens again ; rich, warm tints hang over the still leafy trees, and linger long after the last swallow has taken its flight and the cheery note oi the robin has given tho first notice of approaching winter. Travellers tell us that to taste the orange to perfection it must be gathered and eaten in the orange grove. The same may be said of the cherry. Those who only know cherries as they appear in the homely pie, or bruised and clammy as they are to be seen on the itinerant vendor's barrow, little know the delicious Uavour of the cherry gathered and eaten in the orchard, with tho bloom still fresh on it. It is a pretty sight to watch tho pickers, mostly women and girls, in their blue and pink sunbonnets and neat cotton aprons, mounted on ladders in tho orchards, sometimes many acres in extent, stripping the purple fruit from the straight, stiff branches, along which it clusters as on a rupe. and tossing it into the baskets deftly hold below. Rut if it is difficult to describe the taste of the fresh-gathered cherry, how much moro difficult it is to explain the peculiar charm that lies in the perfume of a hop garden or iu the fragrant scent of an oast-house during the picking season. The hopping season lasts, roughly, some three weeks. It generally overlaps or follows close on the harvest, and precedes by a very short interval the ingathering of the autumn fruit. It is a busy season in the Weald of Kent. Every available soul man, woman, and child is turned to account in tho hop gardens. Woo to the mistress who seeks to replace a servant at such a time, or to the employer who lias quarrelled with his men. Off they all go to swell the ranks of the home pickers : vour parlour-matd begs a day off to go "hopping," anil your handy man about the house takes one w:thout leave. Thousands of strangers (foreigners, as they aro not inappropriately called) of ail sorts and conditions the tottering old beggar, who sweops the crossing when ho is at homo : the stout eostermonger, who takes advantage of a slack season to come with all his worldly gear, including his wile and family, all safely packed in the familiar donkey cart; the gentleman's son out of luck, tho mother whose infant hangs nn her breast thoy swarm into the land like devastating clouds of locusts. They come, for the most part, from the East End of London : Whitechapel provides a goodly contingent. They take possession, so to speak, and until thev take their departure i nisht and rest are a hideous mockerv. Legisla tion arid charity combined have done much to improve the condition of these birds of passage I dining their brief but noisy sojourn in the j country, but much remains still to bo done. I The accommodation provided for them is still 1 utterly inadequate and scarcely decent. The J argument that it is as good us they get at home i is surely a very weak one. Surelv here is a ! golden opportunity for ecttinsr in touch with some portion of that wasted humanity whose claims we now so readily acknowledge. The fact is the people of the South are not sufficiently alive to the importance of such social questions as these to grapple with the problem of the waifs and strays "in a serious spirit. Notice the ijuiei, self-contented placidity of the Southern provincial town t compare" the easy, unruffled expression on most of the faces with the eager, anxious throng hurrying along a Manchester street, and this will be readily understood. There is. moreover, a fund of quiet obstinacy in the Southern character which is more difficult to overcome than all the dogged resistance of the North. You may know your Northern friend heart to heart ; once won, he is tho friend that sticketh closer than a brother. You may live in the South all your life, have many friends, vet not probe the heart of one. In the South ire do bo: try to expand because we do not feel THE! the need for expansion. We do not like tho word Reform ; it has a radical sound, and we are very conservative. "Trade" is our horror; gentility" our ideal ; " above all, no worry" our motto. Do yon doubt the wisdom of such a motto!1 From the edge of the weald, look down on yonder quaint, old, world-forgotten town. In tho midst stands np the ivy-covered tower ot the parish church ; hard by, a erumbling ruin of monastic times ; hero an old grey manor-house ; there, respected and undisturbod, the red-gabled front of some Elizabethan grange. Follow tho irregular lino that marks tho main thoroughfare ; just at its busiest point, whore carriers stop to set down their load of country folk oti a markut day, it is abruptly cut m two by a fork-like row of houses with projecting ; eaves and low narrow doorways and red-tiled ; roofs, to which clings the mossy growth of many ' a summer, and henco demand the respect that is duo to long-ostablished respectability. Would you improve all this away ? Turn once more to the river, where, in the shadow of the poplars, still lurks the wily trout. What is that unsightly structure, of tiaming red and yellow brick, whoso half-linishud chimney blocks tho view of tho old priory beyond ? It is a factory! Courage, tho ago oi progress has begun. .1 0 r NT-STOCK COMPA NIES. Tho iMrcctors of the Palatine Insurance Company, Limited, have declared a dividond of 5 per cent per annum for the half year ending 30th June last. The warrants will be issued on the 15th instant. The Puerto Cabello and Valencia Kailway Company announces a dividend of lGs. per share, free of income tax, on the ordinary shares. The San Jor?a Nitrate Company, Limited, has declared an interim dividend of 5s. per share, free of income tax. The Directors of the De Lamar Mining Company, Limited, have ileclared a second interim dividend of 9d. per share for the three montiis ended September 30. Tho Directors of Hodgson's Kingston Brewery Company, Limited, have decided to recommend the payment of a dividend at the rate of 7 per cent per aunum, free of income tax, for tho six months ending September 30. The rirst annual general meeting of the shareholders of J. and r. Coats, Limited, was held at Glasgow yesterday. Mr. Archibald Coats, who pres ded, moved tho adoption of the report. The amount which bad been carried to depreciation account was 44,000. Tho profits exceeded by 0,000, the highest figures referred to in the prospectus. Sir James King seconded tho motion, which was adopted. On the motion of the Chairman, socondod by tir James Whitehead, a dividend of 6 per cent on the preference shares and 8 per cent on the ordinary shares was declared. The general meeting of the Standard Bank of Africa Company was held iu London yesterday. Sir 11. Kobinson. chairman, presiding. In moving the adoption of the report, which recommended the declaration of a dividend and bonus, making together 14- per cent, the Chairman said tho depression succeeding the disastrous bank failures of the previous half year had only during the past six months been fully evident, and had shown itself in tbe enforced economy that baa" been noticeable in all directions, and in the fact that for the time, speculative enterprise had been practically dead. Tho disturbance of credit in tho London market which had followed tho liaring collapse had reacted prejudicially on South Africa by withholding the action of English capitalists irom investments at the Capo. Moreover, tho trade returns of tho colony bad shown diminished figures almost all round, while the tiovernment receipts for the year ended last. June from customs, railways, and tariil's showed a considerable faliing off from the Treasury estimates. In point of fact, the main feature characterising tho half year had been the reaction and contraction in business which had followed tho excessive speculation and intlatiou oE the markets of 1888, 1839, and the early piirt of 1890. Under these circumstances it was a matter for congratulation that the bank had fully retaitntfl its hold on the diminisned business of the century, and that its profits so closely approximated the n'ures of the preceding half year. On tho debit side of toe account tiie note circulation of 696,203 showed a b.tmll lalhng-otT, which was accounted frr by restricted trade. The amount due to customers on deposit, current, ami other accounts, namely, i.7.S14,b69, showed tho large decline of 1,016,522, but this apparent docli no was due to the fact that the bank auditors had deemed it advisable to treat in an exceptional manner the accounts kept with the Cape of Good Hope Bank, which was in liquidation. Drafts, which wore stated as 378,159, showed a doclino of 61,836, which was also indicative of the restricted business ol the country t but tho acceotances, which were 127,680, showed a satisfactory increase ot 39,287. Bills receivable on account ot customers, whicii amounted to 1,437, '122, showedaconsiderabiedechne, but thisilern appeared on both sides of the balance-. beet. On the credit side what might be regarded as the liquid assets of the bank were of such magnitude as to indicate a very strong position. The tirst three items amounted to 4,285,096, as against 4,446,561 at the close of the preceding ear, thus showing t he comparatively small decline of 161,465. Bills of exchange purchased show a satisfactory increase of 56,403, while bills discounted foradvance-s to customers were stated at 4,507,740, showing an apparent decline of upwards of 1,000,000, which, however, was more than accounted for by the exceptional course taken by tho auditors in dealing with the accounts of the Cape of Good Hope Eank. Freehold premises, kc., in London and South Africa were in a favourable position. The profit and loss account showed an increase of nearly 4,000 iu working expenses, but a large proportion of this was due to law charges. The gros3 profits ot 217,651 allowed an apparent decline of 3,925, but this was accounted for by the charge for bonus to officers which did not appear in last year's account. He thought that on the whole the shareholders would regard the balance sheet as a verv satisfactory one. He believed the prospects of the Bank were i;ood, aa there were already indications of a revival of trade, the exports showing a considerable increase, especially in gold and diamonds. SirH. Birkly seconded the motion for the adoption ot the report, and it was at once agreed to. X dividend and bonus amounting to 14 per ceut was declared. The report of the. Eastern Extension Australasian and China Telegraph Company for the half year ended 30th June states that tho gross receipts, including Government subsidies, amounted during that period to 264,873, against 254,857 lor the corresponding half vear of 1890. The working expenses, including 17,313 "for cost of repairs to cables and expenses of ships, absorb 71,477, against 76,670 for Iho corresponding period of 1300, leaving a balance of 193,402. After meeting fixed charges 155,165 remains as tho net profit for the half year. One ijuarteriy interim dividend of 1 percent, amounting to 31,250, lias been paid during the'half year, and another oi like amount will bo distributed on the 15th instant, leaving 92,665 to be carried forward. All the 6 per ceut debentures that were outstanding when the last ieport was issued have been paid oil and cancelled, and the Stock Exchange have granted an official quotation in tile new 4 . r cent debenture stock. The guarantee arrangement made with certain of tho Australasian colonies for testing the effect of a 4s. rate to Australia came into operation on tho 1st May last, and the increase of traffic resulting trom the reduction of tariff is represented as so far encouraging. As, however, the accounts embrace only two months' receipts at the reduced tariff it is too early to form any reliable opinion as to the result of this important experiment. Tho reserve fuuds amount to 584.530. liKWAitD fob Bravery at Leigh. At a swimming gala held at the Leigh Public Baths last evening. Stewart, of Leigh, was presented with the Koyal Humane Socioty's bronze modal for having on June 8 rescued a lad named Thomas Marsh from drowning in the Bridgewater Canal at Leigh. Stewart, a;;ed 31, who is a promiuent member of the Leigh Cricket Club, has saved six lives previously. Manitoba. Messrs. Tiobert A. M'Lean and Co. rejiort that, by advices just received from Mr. F. H. Urydges. vice president of the Manitoba and North-Western Kailway, the crop in Manitoba has been harvested and that in quantity and value it will considerablv excee 1 thai, ot last year. Immigration throughout the year has been good. Sixty per cent more people have gone into the country served by the railway than last year. These have come from Germany, Iceland, Denmark, and the State of Dakota. The Company's agent in Dak. ta states that "the immigration movement from Dakota to Manitoba is assuming formidable dimensions, and is rapidly becoming a sort of fever affecting all c:a-sos. We cannot get better settlers than these people, who aro accuBtomfd to extensive farming, thoroughly understand the necessities of the country, and buy land quickly." Firf. at a School is Old Kent Road : Exciting Scene. The middle-class school for girls, 415, uld Kent Koad, London, kept by Mrs. C. Shone, was tiie scene of an alarming fire yesterday morning. Shortly before half -past ten o'clock a person in the house discovered that a cupboard under the stairs was alight, and almost in an instant the classroom, which looks into the Old Kent Koad, was invaded by thick clouds ot" smoke. The children, to the number of about thirty, commenced crying and screaming, and many of them rushed into the garden. Police Constable Joseph Collins was informed that one of the children had been left behind in an upper storey, and he at once searched the rooms, but found none. It was afterwards ascertained that the missing girl was sate. The fire was quickly subdued. The news of the fire soon spread, and several mothers were quickiy at the school, and were much relieved on finding that their children were safe. The Military Touhxamknt at Old Traf-FOi:r. In wretched weather yesterday the annual sports of tlie 12th Lancers were brought to a conclusion on the Athletic Clu'i Ground, Old Trafford. Owing to tiie persistent lain only a lew spectators were present. The beautiful " musical ride' was again given, and an addition was made to the programme of tbe previous day in the shape of a one mile saiety bicycle race. This was won easily by J. D.

(IIIOH A COEBBSPOSDEJIT. ) The Workmen's Club Union, at its annual meeting at the hall of the Co-operative Wholesale Society in London, have had a capital year's record to place before its members. Fifty-nine new clubs have been admitted to the Union, wiich brings up the total of tho clubs affiliated to 422. About half of these clubs are in tbe country and half in London. The membership of the London clubs averages about three hundred and that of the country clubs two huudred, so that the Union lias over 100,000 clients whoso club interests it watches over. It is a great tiling that these clubs should federate instead of standing aloof from each other. Affiliation to tlie Union opens the door of each of the 422 clubs in the provinces and London to the whole rango of members who take the trouble to obtain tho " Union associate card." Monthly delegate meetings are held, and in the summer months athletic contests, Saturday afternoon outings, trips by country members to town, and many other pleasant eveuts have been arranged by the L nion, whose secretary, Mr. J. J. Dent, an old member of the Chelsea Kleusis, is an ideal organiser, la the winter a bewildering succession of contests fcdees place. There are billiard tournaments, cribbage tournaments, skittles, and football conteits, and at other times of the year the London clubmen compete in shooting, angiing, cricket, and swimming. or are mental competitions neglected. The club atmosphere is hardly adapted to the severer studies, but there are to be found members who are very glad o:' the opportunity which the Union provides of systematic reading followed by an examination. The Club Union has an excellent library, too, and the boxes of thirty books, two of which are always at the disposal of any club on payment of carriage, are much appreciated. "I owo all to the Union," writes one of tlie workmen for a mining constituency, iu allusion to the benefits which he has gained, thanks to its educational activity. It is not surprising that, with tho rapid financial and numerical development of the Union, the balance-sheet shows an addition of 386 to the funds during the past year. The Committee should be contemplating an extension of its sphere. They are accordingly recomraeuding that during the forthcoming year an effort should be made to establish clubs iu many of the villages which at present have hardly any opportunities for social intercourse. "We believe," says the report, " that both stores and trade unions would be more possible in tbe villages if the club or reading-room were first established and the workers accustomed to meet and w;rk together in managing a club or institute for social recreation and amusement. " This must be a very uphill piece of work, but it ought to meet with warm support. How to make the country a more attractive place to live iu is by no means merely a nutter for country concern, as many townsmen are beginning to discover. The Union has also a scheme under weigh for a central hall, with meeting-rooms, readiug-rooms, and a model club attached. Here, it may be, something will bo done to renew the old ideal which such old friends of the club movement as Mr. Frederic Harrison and Professor Beesly preached, tint the unions and friendly societies should form the backbone of the club movement, so that behind the apparatus for enjoyment and gossip there should be always a serious social purposo. The social side of many of the clubs will fail to render the best account of itself until the old ideal is re-established so many of the more thoughtful clubmen think. It is curious to see what a change has come over the Club Union during the last halt-dozen years. It was almost entirely an affair of patronage and philanthropy for many years, in volume 1 of the minute-book of tlie Union, on page 7, is pasted an account of the inaugural meeting held on June 14, 1862, when Lord Brougham "and other social reformers" met at the Law Amendment Society's rooms, Waterloo Place. The object of the association then started was "to provide for working men social institutes which should supersede the beerhouse by supplying rational amusement and recreation, &c, combined with the means of intellectual improvement and social advancement." The public wero appealed to for subscriptions and donations, and amongst those who announced their " adhesion " to tho social institutes movement were Matthew Davenport Hill, Thomas Hughes, and Miss Mary Carpenter. A few months after there followed a grand storm over tlie beer question. The presont Solicitor General, who acted as minute secretary, headed thu teetotallers, whilst the Judge Advocate General swept the decks at the head of the beer party. Hut in spite of the beer and tobacco the club movement continued to be organised entirely from above, and amongst the subscribers to its funds wero the leading members of the aristocracy, from Her Majesty, who gave 50 one year, downwards. Tiie Archbishop of Canterbury and a number of bishops also appear iu the list of subscribers. The concluding paragraph of the first annual report reads as follows : " Among a greit number of applications and suggestions for immediate corporation in various towns and districts, the Council have received a valuable letter from a gentleman resident iu the cotton manufacturing districts, pointing out the great number of 7iucei for working men's clubs found there during the suspension of factory labour and requiring but very little additional outlay and atteutiou to develop them into all which this society desires to promote." The Manchester braach of the Union, it may be mentioned, now numbers something like sixty clubs. The growth of the democratic spirit in the Union lias been gradual, but it has wiped out at last all tlie list of royal, ducal, and ecclesiastical patrons, and a committee of plain clubmen meat weekly at the offices in Ilolborn to transact business. The secretary gave up bricklaying to take up the work. Only two of the connecting links with the early days of the Union have now any connection with it the veteran peace agitator Hodgson Pra-.t, the president, and Alderman Taylor, the vice president. Whatever shortcomings may attach to the club movement and it is by no means immaculate, it i.t steadily taking its place as one of the forces of the time. LABOUR QUESTIONS. COMPENSATION F110M MINERS. Three hundred miners who wero summoned at Eckington, near Chesterfield, for absenting themselves from work, have agreed to pay the compensation claimed by the Unstone Coal and Coke Company. The cases were adjourned three weeks ago, and on Monday the solicitors engaged intimated to the magistrates at Kckington that the compensation and costs would be paid." A number of men were also summoned for a breach of the special rule3 and disobeying the lawful commands of the colliery officials, bit these sum-mouses were withdrawn. COLLIERY STRIKE AT PENDLEHURV. The men employed at the "Wheat Sheaf "pit of Messrs. Andrew Kriowles and Sons, Pendlebury, came out on strike last evening. A dispute arose some few-weeks ago with regard to the output of the "packing" or refuse of the pit. In thin workings of ten yards wide the men have, according to their statement," been making an output of five yards of pack, for which the rate of pav was 3s. 2d. per yard. The "Wheat Sheaf" being a clean mine a considerable amount of extra labour was caused by the getting of so great a quantity of "pack." New workings of sixteen yards have also latterly been ordered, and on these au "additional pack being requried the men refused to continue working on the present terms. They ask that the whole of the work of getting "packing" shall be taken off and given over as the work of special day men. In this request they are supported by the Lancashire Federated Miners' Union. About 200 miners brought their tools out of tlie pit on leaving work yesterday. SIR W. HARCOURT AND THE EASTBOURNE RIOTS. Ar. a meeting of the Salvation Army, held at Exeter Hal':, London, on Monday night, to bid farewell to thirty officers who are going on foreign service, Mr. Bramwell Booth referred to the Eastbourne riots. He urged that the Local Act of Eastbourne was a bad law, because it was purposely placed on the Statute hook to prevent then from acting on their conscientious convictions, and because it was contrary to the law- of the whole land. Having written on the subject to Sir William Har-jourr, who was Home Secretary when this Act was passed, he had received tlie following reply : "You are right in saying that, so far as 1 had'any adminisrrative authority in such matters while I was Home Secretary, I discouraged restrictions of the character contained in the Eastbourne Act. On more than one occasion I declined to sanction by-laws having such an object when I had observed tbe "use to whi;hthev were put. I don't feel that I have sufficient knowledge of the details to form a judgment on what has since taken place in the execution of the Eastbourne Act, but the impression I have derived is this, as in tbe Whitchurch case some time ago, that the mischief arising from officious interference in such circumEtances is far greater than any possible good which is likely to be obtained. " The Eastbourne Act, continued Mr. Booth, was not only bad ; it was got bv a trick passed without the House of Commons knowing that its numerous provisions about sewers and lamp-posts and streets covered one to prevent the Salvation Army from carrying on its work in the streets. A precisely similar law had been swept away at Torquay, and this would have to go too. Her Majesty's Indian troopship Malabar arrived at Bombay yesterday morning. WEDNESDAYS 0CT0BER114; MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. MANCHESTEB. St. Gkobor's Wabd. A large and representative meeting of the Ward Council was held last evening in the Working Men's Keform Club, City Koad. Mr. James Walthew occupied the chair, and was supported by Dr. Woodcock, Councillor Bax, Councillor Carhart, and Councillor Gibson, Dr. Wotswick, and others. Dr. Woodcock was called upon by tbe Chairman, and presented to Mr. Councillor Norris a requisition signed, in three days, by about 1,000 ratepayers of the ward. The requisition thanked Mr. Norris fcr the vigilant and efficient manner in which he had watched over the interest! of the ward in the City Council, &nd pledged tbe rcquisitionists to use their beet efforts to secure his return. Mr. Councillor ; Gibson supported the prayer of the requisition. Mr. Norris acknowledged the compliment paid him iu tho terms of the requisition and the speeches of Dr. Woodcock i and Mr. Councillor Gibson. An election committee was i at once appointed, with Dr. Woodcock as chairman, Mr. : James Walthew as vice chairman, Mr. Councillor Gibson i being treasurer and Mr. Alfred Ogden hon. secretary. Oxfohd Ward. At a meeting bold last evening at St. ! James's Schools, Mr. Councillor Goorga Clay was pre- Miumu Yii.u n , u,juf3it,!ou in u ueuta&i iy mgjiieu uy eiecioi: of this ward asking him again to become a candidate. Mr. Clay acceded to the request, and a committee was lormed to carry out the necessary arrangements. Tiie following firms attached their signatures to the requisition : Lyon, Lord, and Co. ; G. Fraser, Son, and Co.; S. and J. Watts ; Itichardson, Tee, and ltycroft; Benjamin Carver. Alderman King. F. Mehl, J. Strang and Sons, ; J. F. and H. Roberts, J. Y. Wilkinson and Co., George J'eaK and Co., Henry Samson, Dr. t-iimpson, Benjamin Gibbons, T. P. Bellhouse, E. Briggs, and others. SALFORD. There is a probability of contests taking place iu most of the wards in Saliord. Since November last the Labour Electoral Association has been instituted, which, besides lending its influence to candidates who promise to support its programme, has put forward its President (Mr. G. Kogersori) as a candidate in opposition to Mr. S. Phillips, the retiring member for lietnt Ward. Tho Conservatives are also bringing out a candidate. In Trinity Ward tbe retiring councillor, Mr. S. Cooper (C), will be opposed by Mr. Thomas Schofield (L), bakor, Chapel-street. The Liberals have not yet decided to offer any opposition to Councillor Middlehurst in Islington Ward, but it is stated that .Mr. Joseph Shaw, a former member of the Council, intends to oppose him. Mr. A. Settle (Socialist) and Mr. Kelly (Carters' Union), tbe Liberal candidate, will try conclusions in Ordsal Ward, where Mr. S. Kudman (C), the retiring councillor, seeks re-election. Almost the whole strength of the Socialist body is to be found in this ward, and this will perhaps be the most interesting contest of any. Mr. E. ticholes, a working man, has been brought forward by the Liberals to oppose Mr. T. Jackson (C), the retiring member. Mr. C. H. Uardman (L) and Mr. F. Armstrong (L) retire in Kersal Ward. The former does not seek re-election, and Mr. Armstrong will have as his colleague Mr. Elijah Meggitt. Mr. W. Oilier, a licensed victualler and a former councillor, wUl come forward in the Tory interest. In St. John's Ward the retiring members, Messrs. J. Corbett and G. H. Pmder, will be returned unopposed. Messrs. T. Kobinson (C), J. Shaw (L), and K. W. Jones (L), who represent St. Stephen's, St. Matthias's, and Groengate respectively, will no doubt, walk over. Regent WitiD: Candidature of Me. Geoege Koobh-son. A moeting in support of Mr. G. Kogorson, the candidate representing tlie labour interest, tor Kegeuc Ward was held last evening in tho Woodbine-street Schoolroom; Mr. T. C. Field presiding. There was a large attendance. The Chairman said it was time they of tlie labour interest in Salford returned one of their own order, so that thoy might honestly do away with tho scandals for which Salford had been so notorious. Whether Tory or Liberal, every man in the labour ranks should endeavour to make the result of the coining contest a great victory for that cause. Mr. Kogerson said it had been admitted on all hands by tho great leader at Newcastle and at the recent North-east Manchoster election that labour ought to be more fully represented on ail public bodies. But besides that, he considered that their candidate on the other side had not studied tho interests of tho working classes. On the gas question they liad not boon well represented. Their gas engineer had received an increase of salary, primarily, it seemed, because he had manufactured an equal quantity of gas with a less number of men. That, however, w as scarcely a matter of congratulation for working men. Proceeding, Mr. Kogerson doalt with the question of tlie gas strike, and remarked that it showed that although tne Committee could deal generously with their chief officials yet it was far different with their workmen. Ono of the Sult'orU councillors described the treatment oi their workmen at that time tas "teaching them discipline." Was that proper language to uso towardn free Englishmen who were, in fact, part owners of tho works in which they laboured? He hoped the electors would remember that " teaching of discipline" at the poll. There was no doubt the whole of that business had from beginning to end been contemptible. (Cheers.) As to his own principles, he could repeat that he stood on labour interests. He thought the "pollution of rivers "question would be better dealt with by an imperial than a local body, as the latter had often great interest in the manufactories at the rivers' sides. Labourers' dwellings also was a question that could not bo properly dealt with by a board of house owners. The building by-laws needed revision. He did not believe in the flats" now being erected by the Corporation. They did not want " flats," but homes. Ho was in favour of an eight hours day for ail Corporation men, and the abolition of overtime. No adult workman ought to receive less than 4s. a day. Even on that it was a puzzle how a man could exist. He also proposed that no corporate official should receive more than 500 a year. It was said .they must pay for "bruins." His opinion was that they had had too much "brains" in their officials and too little in the Council. Gas ought to be supplied at cost price, so that it could be used more greatly for cooking and heating, and so lessen the smeke of the atmosphere. Corporation contracts should be carried out only by those who paid trade union wages, and there ought to be no subletting. (Cheers.) On the motion ot Mr. J. B. Foden. seconded by Mr. G. T. Jackson, a resolution of confidence in the candidate was carried. FROM THE "LONDON GAZETTE" OP LAST EVENING. WINDING-UP NOTICES. The siftm and C&n&l Carrying, Stityylns. and Sleaiu TowiflB Compauv.
