IN THB BKITISH PARLIAMENT. Loxdox, Feb. 18. Mr. Mauric Boaiy, mem- bar for Cork City, asked the government in the House of Commons to-day whether, sines th refusal of John Daly, a Ufa eonviot ia Chatham Prison, to connect th Parnellite with the dyaamlte outrages, he bad been treated with enhanced severity bv th prison officials. Mr. Boaly requested that a sworn inquiry be made as to Daly's treatment, or that members of th House who desired to investigate tn matter be allowed the asm acoess to the prisoner I lowed the agent of the London Tines, Tbe Bight Hon. Henry Matthews, Secretary of State for Home Affairs, aaid he bad no au thority to grant th request for a sworn in quiry. He denied th allegations against the prison officials, and said that Daly bad stated that hs had no complaint to make of his treat ment Mr. Bealy then asked the question: . 'Was Daly nearly poisoned r" In reply Mr. Matthewe said that the prison disDenser had nut too much nellsrionna in a Pi-esoripnon for Daly. He bad ainoe been sus pended for his negligence. Mr. Henry La Boachere asked whether the BTorernment intended to demand a vote for the expenses of witnesses wno testified before th I'srneli commission. Mr. William L Jackson. Financial Secretary to the Treasury, stated that no demand of that nvure bad been made upon tbe treasury. Baron de Worms, under Kecretarv of State for tne colonies, intimated that the official tele grams from the Uspe or bood Hope denied the i e port or a JBoer raid into aacaoeiaiaad. IbeKigfit Hon. Henrr Campbell Banner- man. Horn Ruler, member for th Ktiriina? District, resumed tbe debate on th address in reply to the yaeto'i apeecb. He summed np the case sirainst the government by declaring it nad wuiuiiy rssorieu to ooerwon when eoeroioa bad proved to be worse than useless. Tha government s whole Irish policy, he said, wss oce of persistent wrong-doing. There could be no pacification of Ireland aa long as thara ex isted alienation or the masse aud destruction of popular oonfidenoe in the administration of Jusuoe. Mr. Asairour satd That sines be bad been Secretary for Ireland he bad replied to a c slant series of vote of censure all much alike. Dacsea oy macn vioieot language, nut by no substance or fact Brutal attacks upon his government, exactly the asme a those made by ax vsnin, werw maao oy lae prase upon ari bpeoeer and wr ueorge Arereiyan. Mr. u unen appealed to tn speaker to aay whether it waa in oeasr to impnte to- Mm "brutal and aarage attacks." Mr. Balfour withdrew the epithet "brutal " but quoted as article from Mr. O'Brien's paper wheiein Earl Hpencer was described as a dullard In politics, whoso temper was soured Because fie was a allure socially, and wbo while in offaoe was guilty of gratifying hia vindictive feelings by turning Uis law into an instrument of murder and outrage: who did not. punish crime, but shielded ' nameless infamies. . These wi.d phrases were in that tim tha current coin of the fai nell party. Uannr th present debate bis adminiatration of affairs in Ireland had been compared to tbe tyrraony of Russia, al- tnougn everybody Knew that the oomDarisoti was nonsensical. 1 be endeavor of the tor ernment was to free Ireland from the bondage of an unscrupulous conspiracy, to suppress in timidation, to give to tn people the common rights that all people are supposed to posses in etviuzea countries. - The sretem of terrorism Involved in ' the plan of campaign and boycotting waa contrary no omy to general - taw, out to common moral ltv. and abeotutelr destructive of tbe simplest elements of freedom.

' STB HKXBX JAMBS DECLUrn that tha inexorable facts were against the Par- nsll party in tueir endeavors to prove thai the present tranquillity oi xrsiand was due to a anion or near is io tnai understanding between an English and an Inah party which it wjs pretended promised ths triumph of thsir ideaa. Tbe truth was that a similar improvement was observed under the influence of coercion aa It was nforosd during th ministry of Me. Glsdstone. He thought Mr. rarneu, from what be said. mast oe ignorant or ins condition of Ireland. instead of boycotting being milder than for. merly it was now absolutely fiendish. Ireland wished to be left alone, aod members like Mr. Lsfevre would really assist in the eolation of tbe difficulties only by ceasing to interfere be tween landlord and tenant. Mr. Morley said surely a gorerumeat demand ing upon coercion and menace should aDDroarh tbe projected remedial measures with th deep est miiKivings. sr. jairour asserted st -fcOiu burg that tha laws against combination wen alike in England and Ireland, and thia had drawn out a denial from several Conservatives. He in vi lea inoee gentlemen to repeat their denial in the coming election for St Faueraa. Hs reminded the ifonaai that the Marquis of Salisbury, at the election of 1883. took the stand that the law oouid not touch boyootting. He challenged the sovarn- ment to exhibit oourage enough to denounoe the Timis. their ally, whoe language waa worsa than Lnilta Ireland, or. if they behered its charges, to expel their colleagues whom it had charged with murder. He concluded by describing aa a farce tbe proposed legislation that needed the co-operation of tbe Irian people and their leaders under a policy of ooercioa and ex asperation. ; WORKING HOURS OP MINERS.

Lewis, alias half a doxea other name, and for whom ths polios ar now anxiously looking as an al leged seoomplics in tb Sawtoll murder, ha National reputation for crooked work, aaya th Boston Globe of Sunday, and has been aptly termed by a police' authority, "ths silkiest and slipperiest confidence man in the business. Blood is now about 56 years of age, erect ia carriage, qaick in motion, with small, sparkling eyes snd a plauaibl manner calculated to win those inexperienced in reading human nature. He is said to bar originally bailed from Ayer. this State, and b claims to bars been tr.e eon of a Dr. Louis Blood, of that town, though people wbo knew him many years ago deny thai bis father was srsr a doctor. About 18G5 Dr. Blood came to Boston from Philadelphia, and boo became known aa an extensive trareler and advertiser and carer of consumption by means of oxygenated air. and baring his headquarters in ths old Congrega tional Library Bui'ding oa Chauney street. His "ads" frequently, took up a page in a daily paper, and be also Issued an advertising sheet of his own, which was sent broadcast through out the surrounding country. About this time be became interested in "laucbing gas." intro duced by Dr. Coltoo. of New Tork. Blood learned the manner of its manufacture, and then claimed to be the inventor of "oxygenized r." Be soon bad an slesrantlr furnished bouse at Na 119 Harrison arenas, and was adrertiamg extensively to cur all diseases of th blood and lungs by means of his "air. and to sell the rights to use his remedy in various Ststea and 1 emtori.s. Blood soon had a rival in ths person of a Dr. Bams, who applied laughing gas under the name of "suoer-oxrzo nixed air." Harris was ou day visited by a man of th name of Car- rm. from Lawiston. Ma., and aaid ne came especially to ges tb benefit of "auoer-oxygeo-ised air." The air was administered, and in a moment Carrill was frothing at tbe mouth and rolling on the floor, spot rent ly in a fit hi agonizing ooo tortious lasting a boat an hour. Finally Dr. Harris sent his patient home, when Carrill called "hia owa phvmcian," who proved to be Dr. Blood. The next day the newspapers described the "poisoning" of a man of th namo of C irvill by th administering of "su per-oxygenized au" ia Dr. Harris' office, and the subsequent relief afforded tha patient by Dr. Blood, The public were kept posted as to tbe continnsi improvement of the patient under Dr. Blood's oar, as well as ths fact that Dr. Biood s oxygenized air was per fectly harmless and w ia administered dUy at Na 119 Harrison aren ue. Carrill subsequently brought suit against Dr. Harris for poiaoniug him, and a keeper waa put in charge of the premise, all of which served to keep th opposition "air" before the public. Harris' oounael adviaed htm not to par th demands upon him. claiming it waa a blaos-mailing scheme, but Harris seemed anxious to settle, nevertheless. The case finally fell through, but Harris was frightened and left the city. All thia took place in tue winter of 1866- tf 7. and for some tim after Dr. Blood con tinued ia high feather. bom tim after he got into troubl with tha United States Government thro ich failure to properly stamp hia patent medicine, and soon alter uisappoired from the city, bis last appear ance being made in the oustoay of two deputy United b tales marshals.
