WEDNESDAY, JULY 3, 1895. THE DERBY MERCURY. 5 Speakership, and an indication that the Unionists do not proposo to make that offica a party matter. Of the appointments outside the Cabinet only two are at present announced, viz., Mr. Ourion to tho Under-Secretaryship of Foreign Affairs and Mr. Hanbury to the Financial Secretaryship o the Treasury- They are both appointments which will be very popular in this locality. Lord Salisbury has had experience of Mr. Curzon's abilities as a private-secretary, and in the last Unionist administration Lord Scarsdale's son was Under Secretary for India. That the Prime Minister has selected the member for South-port as his colleague in the Foreign Office, and as the defender of his foreign policy in the House of Commons a post requiring great tact and judgment, and a fine capacity for diplomatic speech-making is, no doubt, as the Tinin says, " a peculiarly high compliment,'' but it is one which is well-deserved and woll-earncd by prolonged and personal study of British interests in many seas and lands. Mr. Curzon is now the Eight Hon. George Curzon, having been sworn a member of the Privy Council on Saturday. Mr. Hanbury, who live3 just over the border of the county, near Dovedale, io one of the members for the great working-class constituency of Preston, He has been a great critic of the estimates, has denounced extravaganoo, and has interested himself deeply in Army questions. There are many other subordinate posts yet to be filled np, and bearing in mind the distinguished position to which Sir. Victor Cavendish may some day be called, it would not be surprising if some opportunity presented itself of associating tho member for West Derbyshire with official life. Sufficient is known, however, to make it clear that the new Administration will be the strongest of modern times, and we very reasonably hope that this great weight it must carry in the eyes of tho country will do something to compensate the Unionist party at the coming election far the trick played upon them by the late Ministry in preferring to place thoir successors in a " tight place ' rather than boldly and frankly face the constituencies. Lord Rosebery on Thursday made himself the mouthpiece of those of his party who desire an explanation of policy from the new Prime Minister, but he was scarcely successful in attaining his object. The first policy of tho new Government, said Lord Salisbury, is dissolution, and he hopes it may be possible to dissolve by Monday or Tuesday in next week, and when that is arranged for the rest may follow. Naturally the strong desire of the Unionist chief is to get it over before the harvest begins, and after so much brilliant sunshine it is probable that in the South and West of England the last week in July will see the ingathering of the crops well in hand. Lord Eosebery professes to be rather alarmed at the prospect of the Unionists returning to office with a blank chequa whilst the Radicals are going to the country on a declaration of policy which, " if anything, errs somewhat in the extent and greatness of its scope." But the country knows much more of the policy of the Unionist party than it knew of tho policy of Mr. Gladstone's party in 1892. It is sufficient for all election purposes to say that the new Government will consist of Lord Salisbury, the Duke of Devonshire, Mr. Balfour, and Mr. Chamberlain, and that the Unionist policy can be read in the significance of those names. The policy of the new Governmant will be the opposito of the policy of the last Government, and that, for nine out of ten, will be a sufficient reason for either voting for the Unionists or for hoping that the Unionists may win. Except that there was to be a Home Rule Bill, and that the measure of 183G was doad, how much did the country know in 1892 oE the most vital point of Glaastonian policy? How much did the Gladstones themselves know ? How much did Ministers know of tho most vital point in the Home Rule Bill the retention of the Irish members until a dozen hours before exclusion wa3 thrown overboard and retention adopted? All this anxity to know details of the Unionist programme can only be due to the Gladstonian anxiety to conceal their own past and their future prospects from the country. If they were confident of their own record, sure of the country, and proud of their achievements, the first thing they would say is, " We have done this and clone that, we have fought a good fight ; because we have brought in a Home Rule Bill, tried to disestablish part of a Church, promised to try and prevent a man from obtaining a glass of ale, started to nobble the register of voters, and meokly bowed to the Nationalists when they forbade us to put up a statne of Cromwell, therefore we are entitled to your suffrages, and we feel confident that you will gladly return us to power because you know that what we have done in the past we shall gladly do in the future." But there is no pomp and pride of victory in the parade of their accomplishments ; they do not boast of their achievements for the present at all events they can do nothing but conjure up personal grievances, and make a martyr of an ex-Minister who has been affronted because a gentleman was sent to him with a polite message, and a letter was not written by the sender. Hysterics seem to be the Gladstonian alternative at the present moment to honest fighting. Mb. Richabd Sale, Burton-road, who has attained the great age of 88 years, lies, we regret to hear, in a critical condition at his residence. Mb. Richard Cavekdish, second son of the late Lord Edward Cavendish, and nephew of the Duke of Devonshire, is engaged to be married to Lady Maude Beauclerk. The Prince op Wales on Wednesday dined with the Hoj. George and Mrs. Curzon at their residence on Charlton House-terrace, to meet his Highness the Sbahzada Nasrnllah Khan, and afterwards was present at a numerously attended evening party given by the President of the Board of Trade and Mrs. Bryce, at the foreign Office, to the members of the Intenational Kailway Congress.

Continued efforts to bring about the entire suppression of the traffic is therefore urged. The Allestrek Tragedy. The bodies of the Rev. A. E.

A correspondent writes: On Monday week, about quarter past six, a child about four years of age, named Edwin Shard-low, and who resides in Brook-street, was on the bank at the side of the Mill Dam, which runs through Brook-street Recreation Ground, throwing bits of stick to a dog that was in the water, when he overbalanced himself and fell in, and had it not been for the plucky and timely aid of another boy, only 12 years of age, named Joseph Tunnicliffe, who resides at the corner of Brook-street and Leaper-street, the little fellow would beyftnd all doubt have found a watery grave. This is the second case in which young Tunnicliffe has shown his courage and displayed his heroism, and in both cases he saved life. In the case which occurred on Monday evening he jumped into the water without taking off any of his clothing and swam with one hand, holding the child above the water with the other. The Royal Humane Society might do much worse than recognise the valuable services rendered by this boy so early in life. Life Boat Saturday in Derby: Formation of a Ladies' Auxiliary.

On Friday evening last an interesting ceremony took place at the General Stores Offices of the Midland Railway Company. This was a presentation of a token of esteem to Mr. John James Bryan, from the Stores Department, on the occasion of his retirement from the service. Mr. Bryan has, during the past 26 years, conducted the business of that branch of the Stores department to which is entrusted the supply of provender for the stud, consisting of no fewer than 4,500 horses. The gifts took the form of a beautifully illuminated address (the work of Messrs. Bemrose and Sons), together with an arm-chair, upholstered in art shades, and a silvermounted umbrella and walking-stick. Mr. Geo. Morrall, the Chief Stores Superintendent, made the presentation in felicitous termB, referring particularly to the golden opinions Mr. Bryan had won from ail those with whom he came is contact during his long servioe, .as the result of his uniform kindliness and urbanity of manner Mr. Bryan, who appearaed highly gratified with what to him was a matter of surprise, suitably acknowledged the kindness of his colleagues. Mr. Alfred Derry, chief clerk of the department, on behalf of the staff, endorsed the remarks of Mr. Morrall, and expressed the thanks of the contributors to Mr. S. Weaver, who was unavoidably absent, for his valuable services in initiating and bringing to a satisfactory iesue the arrangements connected with the presentation. The address bore the signatures of Messrs. Morrall, Weaver, Berry, Biddle, Sparkes, Trangronso, White, Alt, Ward, and many ethers associated with the department. Derby Sketching Club. On Wednesday evening last there' was an unusually' large muster of members at the monthly meeting of thd Derby Sketching Club, and a very interesting display of work done during the month was made. Mr. W. Swindell was voted to the ohair, and amongst those present were Messrs, S. Fisher (hon. sec), C. Terry, Riohardson, J. P. Wale, Pettiugale, A. J. Keene, W. Roe, Randall, Timmins, Campbell, Barnesby, Wood, Collinge, A. B. Chadfield, Cooper, Ac Mr. Wale was appointed critio for the evening, and was engaged for some time disonssing the merits and demerits of the numerous paintings in oil and water colour submitted by the following : Messrs. Pettingale, Campbell, Swindell, Ro, Richardson, Timmins, Randall, Peach, and Barnesby. Many of the works were of great attractiveness, but special mention must be made of a water colour sketch sent in by Mr. Campbell, who had reproduced a favourite view on the Trent at Swarke-tone in a singularly successful manner, the picture being as faithful to nature as ifc is clever in execution. Duffield and district were seleoted as a " sketching ground " for the ensuing month, After the usual business had been disposed of, Mr. Swindell (the chairman) said thare was one important item yet to be transacted, and was to express to Mr. W. Roe the regret which the club felt at learning that he was about to leave the town, and to offer him a token of the high esteem in which they held him Mr. Roe had been connected with the club from its earliest history, and in many ways he had been able to further its interests. Mr. F. Timmins, Mr. C. Terry, and Mr. S. Fishor also bore testimony to the high regard felt for Mr. Roe as a journalist'and an amateur artist, and from a social point of view. The Chairman then begged Mr. Roe's acceptance of a handsome and well filled box of water-colours, and the health of the recipient was drunk with musical honours. Mr. Roe, in response, referred to the deep regret which he felt at severing his connection with a body of men so kindly-disposed towards each other as the members of the Derby Sketching Club, than which a more harmonious and ably-managed company could not be found in the town. He traced the history of the club from its origin eight years ago, when the number of the members could be counted on the fingers of one's hands, and dwelt with pride upon the high position it now occupied amongst the permanent and valuable institutions of Derby. He thanked the olub cordially for their kind expressions towards him, and for their charming gift, and concluded by singing the Club Song," " Wrap me up in my old Sketching Jacket," which it has fallen to his lot to sing at the opening of the convivial gatherings of the olub for several years past. (For remainder of Local News see page 2.) DERBY CHARITY SPORTS AND LOCAL VETO MEETING. Sir Permit me to express my regret that these two very important meetings should have been arranged for the same afternoon, July 6th. I notice that a Nottingham evening paper has recently csmmented on the fact that although the date of the Charity Sports was made known several months ago the promoters of the local veto meeting in the face of this fixed their meeting for the same day. Surely an association which, during the two years it has been in existence, has assisted local charities to the extent of 120?. is .worthy of the consideration by the Temperance Society in the arrangement of their meeting. I am moreover, given to understand that the promoters of the latter were some time ago approached with a view of obviating the clashing of the two events but without avail. To my mind it is very much to be regretted that the Temperance Society could not have seen their way to have fixed upon a date which would not have been detrimental to a charitable movement. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, Charity. Sir I noticed the letter from " Charity " contained in your columns on Saturday last relative" to the above. I should very much like to support your correspondent in his contention. I certainly consider that the Temperance Society were ill-advised in ignoring the claim on their consideration of the Charities' Sports meeting, and the least they can do now is to give some tangible explanation of the course they have taken. Personally I do not think so good an object as the Charities' Sports will suffer to any great extent by reason of this so-called " monster gathering," but this fact is no excuse for the Temperance Society's endeavour to injure a noble effort to assist charities. To my thinking Local Veto is dead, but I hope the Charity Sports may long continue to be of help to those who are not in a position to help themselves. I am, sir, yours obediently, Fair Play. DERBY BOAED OF GUARDIANS. The usual weekly meeting of the above Board was held on Tuesday at the offices in Becket-street. Mr. W. Harvey Whiston presided, Mr. Hy. Boam, J.P., occupying the vice-chair, and there were also present the Revs. H. R. Rolfe, Monsignor McKenna, and J, Birks, Mrs. Waters, Mrs. Grundy, and Messrs. G. Bottomley, J.P., G. Dean, G. Cholerton, J. Banks, T. Bakewell, C. Smith, E. C. Ellis, L. Moynan, J. Potter, F. P. Copestake, J. Jerram, R. W. Gentles, J. H. Hefford, F. S. Whitaker, G. Innes, J. Stubbs, J. Parr, E. J. Marriott, H. Whiteman, G. Fowke, J. Bancroft, and W. Twells j Mr. P. B. Chadfield (clerk), and Mr. J. B. Chadfield (assistant olerk). THE BALANCE The Clerk reported that the available balance stand-ing to the credit of the Union was (,117f. Is. lid. All the parishes had paid their contributions excepting St. Werbnrgh's and New Normanton. The Chairman suggested that the Clerk should writs to the two parishes mentioned upon the matter, APPLICATION FOB COMPENSATION. Mr. Cholerton, in accordance with notice of motion, moved, as chairman of the Finance Committee, " that subject to the sanction of the Local Government Board the sum of 200Z. be paid to Mr. J. Tempest, the amount of loss of salary in consequence o! the provisions of the Local Government Act, 1891, and that the amount be charged to the parishes of St. Alkmund's and Darley Abbey." Mr. Cholerton said it would not be fair to bring forward a resolution involving such an amount without some explanation.. When Mr. Tempest made application the committee, he must confess, were somewhat surprised, but they had subsequently had different interviews with bim, and were now satisfied that the claim was a fair and reasonable one. It was really not a question for the Guardians, but a matter entirely between the parishes mentioned and Mr. Tempest. St. Alkmund's had paid him Gil. per year and Darley Abbey 101 as rate colleotor, an office which the new Local Government Act had abolished, The overseers had previously paid him, and the Guardians thought that the overseers ought to pay, him oompen-. eation, but they found that that rested with the Guardians. The Act bearing upon the question stated that an overseer on suffering any direct loss or diminution of salary through the new Act should be entitled to compensation. Mr. Tempest had acted most honourably in the matter in claiming but 200. (Hear, hear). Mr. Brigden asked if the oostfwould fall wholly upon St, Alkmund's parish. Mr. Cholerton answered in the affirmative, and added that Mr. Tempest's application would be the only one of the kind. ' Mr. Whitaker seconded the motion, stating thatjthe Committee were unanimous in recommending it. The Clerk explained that Mr. Tempest had at different times had to pay for a great deal of extra work. Mr. Stubbs asked how long the Guardians had been aware that Mr. Tempest had been receiving the HI., and whether any other assistant overseer received it ? The Olerk said Mr. Tempest's case was the only one ; the same oircumstances occurred in no other parish. The payment in St. Alkmund's and Darley Abbey was on.account of both a borough and a county rate having to be collected. Mr. Dean supported the motion. Mr. Brigden repeated the question whether the compensation would have to be paid by St. Alkmund's, and received an answer in the affirmative. Mr. Cholerton, in answer to Mr. C. Smith, Baid the Guardians had not been aware that Mr. Tempest had been receiving the 7il, the Clerk further explaining that the matter was purely a parochial one. The motion was then carried unanimously. A letter was read from Head Nnrse Clark, resigning her position on account of illhealth, and Mr. Cholerton, on the suggestion of the Chairman and after some discussion, gave notice that at the next meeting he would move a resolution in regard to her superannuation. This terminated the business.

Mr. Turbntt said that the stirring events of the past week, events of hourly interest to the newspaper reader, and to the careless supporters of each of the two great political parties, and possessing far greater meaning in the minds of their representatives in the House of Commons, must appeal to them most forcibly as active workers for the Unionist cause, because not only had the Unionist party been summoned to office for the purpose of meeting the immediate wants of the nation, but their leaders had now passed from the stage where there efforts were expended, principally, in warding off attacks upon the unity of the empire and upon an institution which many of them regarded as entirely sacred, and had openly taken office for the purpose of tiding over an emergency, for carrying on the Government until a general election. The question which now arose was whether the Unionist party was to be the attacking or defending force before tho constituencies ? Under what conditions were their forces to be organised for service to meet adequately the requirements of a general election 3 Further, the views of their leader, generally known, were minutely defined in election addresses within the past, few hours. The sense of relief from the tension of mind and nerves from the great attack of the past six months was most gratifying. No energy had been spared to make the defence of the Church in Wales a good one. In the struggle of their opponents, in the magnitude of their need to preserve their party intact, appeared the only true interpretation of their final effort to insulate, for purposes of plunder, an institution most sacred in the eyes and minds of the majority of Englishmen and Englishwomen (Applause). But what had been the effect ? An immense upheaval of public opinion, witnessed in the recent bye-elections and pointing onwards to results of a similar character not many months hence (Applause) It might be asked, What were the possible obstacles to success? In addressing a body of gentlemen actually engaged in making arrangements to secure a resnlt favourable to Unionism, he would say that the only possible check to the good fortunes of the party was the number of highly contentious proposals which would be scattered broadcast amongst the electors previous to the eleotion day. To this county, at least, there was the uncertain element of the eight hours' question, there was the thorny question of local option, and the circumstance, not only probable, but certain, that many electors in this county and elsewhere, earnest in the desire for so-called temperance measures, would regard it as a duty to give an unhesitating allegiance to the party promising this method as a remedy for intoxication. But in spite of this circumstance they had great confidence in this result of the coming election throughout the country. Further, they knew the oharacter of the subjects already considered by their leaders as demanding the interference and assistance of Parliament. There were the home proposals, embracing such questions as eld age pensions, and pauper aliens. Again the Unionist party placed in the forefront the development of our great Empire abroad, with its increasing acquisitions equally, with the defence of our position in each Continent. But, another question, nearer home, claimed their attention, and they asked could trade, especially in country districts, be improved, and confidence again be established In conformity with progress 1 He ventured to say it could, by not, only giving increased opportunities to more people to invest their capital in the purchase, or improvement of property, but what was of no less importance, by giving some guarantee for reasonable advantages to accompany the possessors, Freeholders in land, whether large or small, landlords, agricultural tenants in some inEjtances, owners and occupiers of houses, needed some reassuranoe in the face of the depreciation of their property, from the disastrous increase of local burdens, rates, the result of recent Acts of Parliament, passed solely in the interest of the community, in face of the bonus grantedby foreign governments, andby the governments of our own Colonies. They were prepared to pay a higher price for labour, which meant an improved condition of the labourer; but, to this increasing charge, the addition of preferential rates in favour of foreign goods, the addition of high local rates, made profitB almost impossible (Hear, hear'), In conclusion, . Mr. Tnrbutt warmly congratulated the borough upon having secured Mr. Drage as their candidate, and pointed out that Mr. Drage had had considerable opportunities of making himself acquainted, with questions of vital importance to trie nation (Applause). Mr. Geoffrey Dratre then nroneeded address upon the subject of "Conservative Democracy." He stated that it would be his endeavour to fight the coming election straightforwardly from beginning to end, shirking no issue, and avoiding no ques- J tions which might be deemed unpleasant. The battle must be fought by the Unionist party throughout the oountry fairly and squarely, whether they won or lost (Applause). The subject of "Conservative Democracy" was a difficult one to deal with, but he wan bound to say that his way had been rendered smooth for him by tho very able speeoh delivered recently j mo iunc ui uevousiure. ine uuKe naa maae it possible for Conservatives, whilst holding their own opinions, to act at the same time with absolute loyalty towards allies who had made ereat sacrifices for the good of the nation the Liberal Unionists (Applause). T -U i. I, a! T .. '. uy mo Ltuiu uuuBocviti.ive democracy inere was meant first and foremost progress, and also that recognition of the principle that the voice of the people as represented by the electorate was in the long run supreme. This was laid down by the Duke of Devonshire as tord Harrington, and by Lord Salisbury in his most recent speech, But there must be certain guarantees that the views of the people had been accurately obtained, and mis was engrarcea on toe .tsriusn constitution byaseries of tests which might not commend themselves to every political philosopher in Europe, but had hitherto worked out uncommonly well in the practical details of everyday political life. Beyond the House of Commons there was a House of Lords, who were a guarantee that the country should be oonsulted to ascertain whether the oountry had changed its views upon certain questions or whether the House of Commons had not, since its eleotion, got entirely out .of touch with the electorate. This was the first and perhaps most important check, but the check of the Houseiof Lords only applied to home politics. The foreign Minister, as they were no doubt aware, was largely supreme, and when he exceeded the limits imposed by puuuuupuiuuuie xvoyai veto couiq De exercised (Hear, hear). This was absolutely essential. But beyond these guarantees there was another guarantee nn whioh too little stress was laid in these days. A measure might be passed by the House of Commons and be backed up strongly by public opinion for the time being, but before passing into law it had to come before the most capable and efficient body of men that existed in the wide world the Bench of English Judges (Applause). No law could be enforced unless tue Bench ot Judges decided that it was a good law. In the immediate future he did not believe the same attention would be paid to purely constitutional questions as to social and labour subjects, but the most important of constitutional questions was certainly that relating to tbe cAtcuoiuu ui hub iranomse. rersonany ne strongly agreed with the principle of one man one vote, provided that that one vote had one value (Hear, hear). Mr. Drage went on to toucfi upon various commercial and labour problems, and urged that the most practical solution to the difficulties which existed were provided by the principle of self 'help as against the principle of State interference (Hear, hear). There was the question of agriculture. Take the very Bimple industry of butter making. What farmers felt most was a want of uniformity (Hear, hear). The co-op$rat.ive principle adopted in Canada the principle of tho farmers meeting together and combining, had done a great deal in that colony towards promoting uniformity of quality and the production of a good quality of butter. One of the great difficulties of the employer in the present day was purely a question of organization and combination. He had taken the trouble to consult many of the largest employers in England on the subject, and there was an absolute agreement that a better oreanisation in matters of industry and in large industries would be of great service to this country. Friction arose in many large concerns entirely through a want of organization. From tbe figures of the last coal strike lie had satisfied inmselt that if onlv this combination took place it would be possible to "pay the men their wage, make a good profit, and shut out a good deal of foreign competition (Hear, hearl. In all matters connected with trade the State, representing the public interest, had an undoubted part to play. First and foremost the State must enforce a nroner svstem of bankruptcy laws fraudulent promoters must not be allowed to steal the savings of rich and poor nominally for the beriefit of Bnslish trade CHear. henri. I There was another thing the State could do ; it could shape the commercial code f the country into a prae- tical commrjrn-senBe form, making it accessible to every employer, 'i'he codification of the commercial law was an important subject, which had always been left to a Conservative Administration to deal with. Then again it would be a great step forward if they could only obtain a uniform system of weights and measures (Applause). On such subjects as tbe protection of women and children, the safety of tho public in travelling, the public health, the sanitation of remote districts, he would certainly not be held back by any pedantic adhesion to that prinoiple of liberty which in other resnmita hnnnatmnni. oi.,i...j ,1 . - i oU'UUrttCU. .II regard to accidents, want of employment, old age pensions, and every branch of the labour ques- nun, jtuwc.Br, iq appeared to him that friendly societies, trades unions, nnfl nMm oolf.T,-.--! bodies had devised the most practical remedies uM,io uib worm naa ever seen or was likely to see , r j. , v,.

In conclusion, Mr. Drage assured them that if he could give any assistance in any of the divisions of the county be would most gladly and willingly do so. He asked them to work shoulder to shoulder for those principles which were the life and soul of their political existence, and hoped and believed that the Unionist candidates in the county would be returned by thumping majorities (Loud applause). Sir Henry Wilmot, in proposing a vote of thanks to Mr. Drage for his excellent address, said that Derby was most fortunate in having secured such a candidate (Applause).

Personally, he had arrauged to go a yachting cruise in the West Isles of Snotlanfl on .Tnlv 1f1i-.h hnt lio l,n thi- up, and intended to work to the utmost of his ability to secure the return of the Unionist candidates for the oorougn and county at the forthcoming election (Applause). Mr. John Gretton, jun., seconded. He believed that they stood an excellent chance at the coming election, and that it would result in the defeat of a Government which, in attempting to rob various institutions, had most effectively hung itself (Applause). The resolution having been cordially carried, and Mr. Drage having briefly replied, Mr. J. C. Shaw delivered an interesting address on the recent bye-elections, registration work, and other topics, throwing out a number of very valuable hintB. The discussion which followed was taken part in by Messrs. Sealy Fishor, Preston, W. Bland, Trueman, Richardson, and Wells. Captain Baumgarten proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Shaw for his address, and referred to the circumstances which had led up to his candidature in tho Ilkeston Division. He intended to open his campaign on Monday, and to fight it vigorously throughout (Applause). Mr. C. E. B. Bowles seconded, and the proposition having been agreed to, Mr. Shaw replied, and tho proceedings terminated with a vote of thanks to the Chairman, moved by Mr Drage, and seconded by Mr. R. B. Chambers. THE LATE MR, FRANCIS C. GILLETT. We deeply regret to announce the death of Mr. Francis Calvert Gillett, the well-known mining and civil engineer, of Derby.

At the Derby Borough Police-eoort on Thursday morning, before Mr. J. Bailey and other magistrates, Thomas Johnson, landlord of the Cattle Market Inn, was summoned for keeping open his house during prohibited hours on June Hi for the sale of intoxicating liquors, for refusing to admit Police-constable Mansfield into the premises, and also for assaulting tnd """"S uuHsxaoie. oar. it. s. uiittord prosecuted, and Mr. W. B. Hextall (instructed by Mr. F. Stone) defended, Johnson pleading not guilty to each offence. Mr. Clifford, in opening the case, said that on Sunday night, June 16, Police-oonstable Mansfield ho was in plain clothes and off duty, went for a walk to Chaddesden with a friend named Woollatt. On their return, via Meadow-road, to Siddals-road at about 10.40 they noticed four men coming from the public-house keDt bv the defpnfln bottle. JohnBOn WAS. shandincr nn rhp nnn cfor, -jn Mansfied asked him whether he had just supplied four men with half a gallon of beer. The defendant replied, " What has thftt to do with VAN ' and Mo.c&IJ bad replied that he was a police-constable Johnson uu me uuur step arm strucK mm a Dlow on tne side of the bead, Mansfield followed him to the house and demanded admission, but the landlord refused to let him in and used some strong language. The constable reported the matter at the 'police station and returned to the house with Pnli P-P-SPriPAnf. Woltup nnrl Police -constable Walton. Johnson then stated that Mansfield had been into the house earlier in the evening with a woman, and had treated her. This the constable entirely denied. Police-constable Mansfield was the first witness called, and said he had been in the force for about 10 months. At about eight o'clock on the night in question he. with a fripnrl no.mpn Tamoa w,nlloH- om - . uullft,U, ui iUl, Biddals-road, went for a walk round Chaddesden, and aoouc minutes to eleven when they got close to the Cattle-market Hotel, on their return, they met four men. one of them carrvinp a stnnn hnr.Mp tt ocUui the defendant, who was standing at the door, if lie no ocjicj "icuieu wiia me Deer alter 10 o clocK, to which he replied " Yes." and askeii him wW. it hnrl t. with him, at the same using strong language. He men oiepijcu on io tne pavement ana struck witness behind the ear. after which he ran through the doorway. WitneSS DUt hispt.iolr hRt.WPPn rlnnr- ar.,1 tha post to stop him from closing it. He (Mansfield) told mm mac ne was a policeman, to which Johnson replied, " You cur, you want, to try and get a few shillings for yourself and then admit you nor twenty others into my house." While mio n-aa Suiu;j on two men letc tije nouse by the back gate and went towards the cattle docks. Johnson soon afterwards came frcm t.lip hn.nle mJ -siion liar, addine that he then called his houKGkpp.npr nnrl i.nia tir t-rt -rtv, 1- vwv- j-i-ji uw IClljli police-constable. Witness went to the police-station and returned with Sergeant Walker. On the wav thev met a mnn namo. and at the Cattle Market Offices they saw the other three men. who witness hart sppn -jit.h tTio nntfin fnn bottle was there and alsoa cup half full of beer. When n A.l! J i. ..IT..., ucieuutmu was toia mat ne would be reported he said he opened tbe door and offered to let the officer in. He filled the beer before ten o'clock He told the sergeant that witness had been in tho house shortly before ten o'clock and loft with a woman, which was quite incorrect. In reply to Mr. Hextell he said he was on a week's leave. Johnson was under tho influence of drink. James Woollatt, labourer, employed at the Loco. Side, next gave evidence, but denied that Mansfield told the defendant what his name was. Police-constable Walton said that defendant complained to him about two men interfering with him, and one saying that he was a police-constable. Sergeant Walker deposed to having a conversation with the defendant. Mansfield, recalled, said he did not leave the defendant's house with Hip ronmnn rnfor,WI tn !,,, j had never seen her, to his knowledge in his life.

He asked the uuncu to Deneve tnat tne evidence of Mansfield and Woollatt was not to be relied upon. Mr. Johnson said he had kept the house for 11 years. Shortly before 10 p.m. on the night in question a maii named Chester, employed by Mr. Ernest Watling, a Newark horse dealer, who mr? utq vprl at.iuihoci'Dim,,,. all day, ordered half a gallon of beer to take with him the next morning, and a little later a man, who he now identified as Police-constable Mansfield, entered the house and naid for half a. ninf-. nf Vippr fnr a n,nnnn with a black eye, who was with him. They had only iei5 tae nouse a snort time when someone rang the bell, and on witness proceeding to the door he saw five men there, three visitors and t Wfl Tftrhu mon Thaw all came inside, and reekonp.H Tin flnmo flnnnnnrc but only three of tbe men the visitors- were supplied with drink. Soon afterwards the man, who had been in company with the woman, came up and asked who the men were. He was told to find out, and then said he was a policeman, to which witness replied, " I don't care what you are." Witness was not under the influence of drink, nor did he use bad language to the policeman or strike him. It was not correct that two men left the yard during the time the policeman was at the door. Mansfield poked his nose in his face and dared him to hit him. In reply to Mr. Clifford, witness said the woman who was with Mansfield was named Annie Sims, and notBeeson, and he bfilrpvfld shp wnn a. wnman nf imrn.l nnn.nn4n - - w. vuuiaijuci . The reason he did not admit Mansfield was because he aia not tmnK tie was a police officer. At the request of the defending counsel the clothes Mansfield was wearing on the night in question were produced. Edwin Charles Swain, cattle foreman, employed by the Midland Railway Company, said he was one of the oartv who went tn spt.t.lp wit.Vi W,t.lin oknt horses that had been conveyed by the company from jjiYerjjuui iu jjeruy, ana as tney were going bacK to the docks they met a woman with two. mpn nn Mansfield and Woollatt standing up, witness said they were like the men he saw. He ldp.ntifipri thp wnmnn Annie Sims as the female who was with them. Mansfield looked very hard at them, but did not speak. Ernest Watling, cattle dealer, of Newark, said he oame to Derby to meet some horses from Liverpool. The next morning they started for Belton Fair at four o'clock, and they had the beer to drink in the meantime. Bamuol Chester, a man in the last witness's empl'y, living at Leagrave, denied that Mansfield spoke to them. Frederick Green, a young man living in Newark, also employed by Mr. Watling, and Robert Bricknell, t rhat-jw flvoa .... -3 4.1 1 .. . . .1 - . , , he identified one of the men with thp woman aa Mans. field, and told Swain so. John Hay, butcher and cattle dealer of Meadow-road, and Thomas Sarsfield, traveller, of John-street, deposed to seeing a man whom they thought was Mansfield in the public-house with a woman.

The annual demonstration under the auspices cf the Rutland Habitation (Bakewell; of tho Primrose League took place on Thursday evening, and was held, by tho permission ofthe Duke of Rutland, ;ls usual on the romantic grounds of Haddon Hall, the hall itself being also thrown open to the visitors. The proceedings were somewhat marred, so far as the actendau. e was concerned, by the weather which prevailed in the earlier portions of the day, two heavv thunderstorms havinp-passed over the district, which doubtless had the effect of preventing many members residing at a distance from being present. From four to six o'clock a substantial tea was provided, to which only ticket holders were admitted, in a large marquee erected on the grounds, at whioh nearly 300 of the members were present. The proceedings were rendered the more enjoyable by the presence, for the first time, of the Dannemora (Steel Works) Prize Brass Band, under the leadership of Mr. K. Kichford. After ea was concluded an open-air meeting was held on the terrace, and the attendance having- bv this time been greatly augmented by visitors f 10m Bakewell there was a fairly large audience. The chair was taken by Mr. R. W. M. Nesfield, RuliDg Councillor, and amongst those present were Messrs. S. Turner (United Club London). Mr. W. Redfern. .T P Miau imrf0.mnj it ' J. Taylor, Mrs. G.

The Chairman, who was received with a round of appl use, said : I have the honour and great pleasure in welcoming you all to the Duke of Rutland's ancestral hall of Haddon (Cheers). I only regret that that duty should devolve upon mo, as his agent, instead of upon himself or upon one of the members of iiiaiaum. -i ao nor. tnmK: tnere is anything that gives the Duke or bis family greater gratification than to see a number of ladies ami ancestral hall (Cheers). Gentlemen, I do not propose to indulge myselt with any great amount of political discussion. The present Government is an enormous improvement upon that which immediatdly preceded them (Loud cheers). Mr. Gladstone, who is, perhaps the greatest orator and tho greatest politician, when he resigned office after being defeated by the House of Lords, ought to have dissolved Parliament and appealed to the TiRontB -. u however, I presume, preferred to shelter himself under his great age, and banded the Government over to Lord Rosebery and the rest of them They, however, came to grief the other day (cheers) not unexpectedly, but somewhat suddenly, and I say aeain that it was their, nfin .. to appeal to the people, to know whether they did n Alrl nnt n n n .1. . ! ,1 . . apyiuve vi niu poncy tney nad been pursuing (Cheers).

I do cot know, nor can T that I very much care, but I know that when Mr. Victor Cavendish comes to our county he will be received with the respect and affection which he, in common with every member of his family, richly 'deserve (Loud cheers). Whether we agree politically wich him or not on every point, there can be no doubt that a large majority of tbe people of Derbyshire do iuuiaiijr uuiiuui- wjmi mm as a politician: Mr. Nes- neia men orieny tnanked the audience for their presence, and concluded hv i Turner, from the United Club, London, to the meeting. mi. on-iiiuer turner cnen addressed the meeting in a speech of considerable length, in the course of which he said ho was sure they would forgive him if, living in stirring times like the present, he called their atten- 4-inn J i-1 L 1 C i 1 , . - . wuu iaj lijk nuiuai races wtiicn nad occurred in London duriner the Dash few rlnvs nil nhih ,.,ia I- J", "DlllU UUUUI IJUt. only in London, but all over the country in a very short uiluk. may were now wunm view of the general election, which they had been asking for during the past two years, and which had bppn rn;j n,am i, who were responsible for Uie Government of the coun ty, -men uearis were nnr., and tneir hopes high, for they felt absolutely confident of what the result of that eleotion would be.
