SHAW. (Front our London Correspondent.) In the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court of Justice on Monday, before the Lord Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Mathew, sitting as a Divisional Court, Mr. Clay appeared in the case of the Mayor and Corporation of Huddersfield in support of an appeal from a deoision of the justices of Huddersfield. The case, he said, came before the court on a case stated by the justices, and raised the question whether, in the assessment of damages under the Local Government Act and the Huddersfield Improvement Act, the justices were entitled to award costs as well as damages.

The case set out the facta. The Corporation appeared to have made a sewer through the property of Mr. Shaw, who claimed compensation, which was awarded to the extent of 112 with 36 16s. 6d. costs.

The learned counsel was going further into the case when the court rose, and the hearing was adjourned till to-day (Tuesday). Mr. Tindal Atkinson, Q.C., appeared on the other side. DEATH OF WILLIAM EDWARDS HIRST, J.P. Another leading townsman of a paBt generation passed quietly away on Sunday morning last.

Forty years ago Mr. William Edwards Hirst was actively and largely engaged in the wool trade with hie father and other members of the family, in the business of Messrs. Samuel Hirst and founded by his father, Mr. Samuel Hirst, about the beginning of the present century. He continued at the head of the firm until about 10 years ago, when he relinquished business altogether.

Though omparatively unknown to the younger generation springing up around us, Mr. rlirst tools a very active interest in the political and municipal life of Huddersfield 20 or 30 years ago. He occupied the position of chairman of the Huddersfield Conserva tive Association, and worked untiringly in promotion of the candidature of various gentlemen who were brought out by the party, both in the borough and county elections. For a period of something ike 23 or 24 years he was a director of the London and North-Western Railway Company, and on the 30th of December, 1878, he qualified as a West Riding magistrate. Shortly after the latter date, however, his health became much impaired, and for the last 10 years he has been an invalid.

Two or three weeks ago he became very ill, and passed away as above stated at his residence at Lascelles Hall. Mrs. Hirst and the members of the family will have the sincere sympathy of a wide circle of friends in their bereavement. BOROUGH POLICE COURT. MONDAY.

Before the Mayor in the clmir), Sir Joseph Crosland, and C. E. Freeman, Esq. Threats. George Shaw (52), spinner, Kilner Bank, was summoned for being drunk and disorderly in Victoria-street on the 19th inst.

Defendant was also summoned by Catherine Naylor, wardrobe dealer, Victoria-street, for using threats towards her on the same occasion. The charge of drunkenness was admitted, the latter charge being apparently the outcome of the former. The Bench imposed upon the defendant a fine of 10s. and 7s. and bound him over in the sum of 5 and one surety of 5 to keep the peace for six months.

Case Dismissed. Elizabeth Rushworth, Lock-wood, was summoned by Mary Byram, of the same place, for assaulting her on Monday afternoon last. Mr. R. Welsh appeared on behalf of the oom-plainant.

The parties are neighbours, and the disagreement arose out of the defendant's boy wheeling a coal truck in front of the complainant's door. Complainant stated that she asked the boy to go away, when the defendant came out and commenced the assault. This was denied by the defendant, who declared that the complainant first struck her. witness was called on each side, and the Bench ultimately decided to dismiss the case. Bad Language.

Harry Lindley, millhand, Lindlev, was summoned for using bad language Lidget-street, Lindley, on the 12th inst. Defendant said he was only argling with another man. Fined os. and 8s. costs.

Workhouse Case. Henry Webb (47), labourer, of no fixed place of abode, was summoned for breaking a window at the Crosland Moor Workhouse, and also for refusing to do task work. Defendant said he hadn't come to the workhouse to work, and he should not. The damage to the window was laid at 6d. The Bench sentenced the defendant to a month's imprisonment in each case.

Distributing Indecent Bills. James Moore (Zo), labourer, of no fixed place of abode, was charged with distributing indecent handbills. The Chief Constable said that for many years past respectable people had been annoyed by the distribution of pamphlets of an offensvie character, and also by bills being posted on the walls. The Legislature last year passed a very stringent Act, making it an offence to deliver, or even throw down on the floor such bills. In the present case he (the Chief Constable) was only able to proceed agamst the defendant, who no doubt was a very poor mai, and not really the greatest sinner.

He said he received the bills from a man in the street who gave him fid. to distribute them. Ther was no printer's name on the bill, and they were, therefore, unable to establish the ownership of the bills. Detective Rnwprman gave evidence as to arresting the detend- nnt on Saturday nicht whilst in the act of distribut ing the bills to males and females, ueienuani, wno pleaded guilty, was fined 10s. and costs.

A CURIOUS DIVORCE CASE. Tn th Divorce Division, on Monday, before Justice Butt. Mrs. Sarah Bryant d'Etchgoyen sued for a divorce from her husband under somewhat singular circumstances. The parties were married at ComDton.

in the Province of Quebec, in Sep tember. 1878. the reDondent being a tarmer. xn 1885 they separated, and in 1887 the husband sought a divorce, alleaine adultery against his wile, one then raised the Question of mnsdiction on xne ground of her husband being, as she alleged, Canadian. The court, however, held that it had jurisdiction.

The husband then brought a aummons to dismiss the suit. In the meantime he had gone to Chicago, and obtained a divorce on the ground of desertion, but counsel alleged that this was done without serving papers on the wife. Before his suit here was decided he had gone through the form of marriage with another lady. The petitioner, therefore, claimed a divorce on the ground of bigamy and adultery. A deoree nisi was granted.

According to the senior member for Halifax the great want of the Church of England at the present day is- a man a man who will agree with the Right Hon. J. Stansfeld Addressing a Liberation Society meeting in Manchester recently he said If the Church had one man of courage and genius what might he not do for the Church by compelling ii to come Deiore tne peoole.

bv not waitim? till dis establishment was forced upon them, by discussing win yuestion ireeiy and iairly upon open and common giounu tor tde good and the salvation of the people u.nu trusting tne people to give generous and rightf treatment. There is not, apparently, any chance, so far as Mr. Stansfeld can see, of the members of the Liberation Society being able to carry out their programme, and, therefore, he appeals to Church men for help. The bribe is that for such assist ance any Churchman who accepts shall be dubbed a man of courage and genius." Most Churchmen have been under the impression that within the fold of the Church of England were considerable numbers whose claim to the double distinction were undeniable, but it seems that this is all a mistake. No one who will not advocate disestablishment can be allowed to possess such virtues.

There is no other qualification. Courage and genius," when thus qualified and restricted, may appear worth possessing to Mr. Stansfeld, but to others it will seem that their absence is meritorious. The members of the Church of England do not accept Mr. Stansfeld's invitation to submit to any treatment he and his friends may like to mete out to them.

They think they know, better than he possibly can do, what is consonant with their own interests, and they leave him lamenting because of its poverty in not supplying a man of "courage and genius," which being interpreted means that no Churchman has the wish to assist Mr. Stansfeld in his work of injuring the Church, and, through her, all religious progress in the country, and perhaps in the world. Despite all the fuss and mystery which are being manufactured out of the supposed candidature of Sir James Kitson for the Colne Vallev Division, and which, no doubt, are intended to impress the electorate, the Gladstonians cannot be entirely congratulated upon the fighting form of the man of their choice. Finding it difficult to effectively criticise the work or the programme of the present Government, Sir James fell back, at Meltham, on Saturday evening, upon an old and now no longer an open question. He complained that free education had not already been granted.

It had been dropped, in his opinion, because of clerical interference." Now Sir James Kitson should know. if some of his audience were unaware of the fact, that it was expressly stated in the House of Commons last Thursday night, by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, that the matter was not dropped," but reserved to be dealt with next Session, and that the task of finding the funds to bring about such a state of things would devolve upon him. Does Sir James Kitson expect the Government to do everything at once, and that in spite of the obstruction offered to real work by the members of his own party It would be well if, in his address to the Glad-stonian Council next Saturday, he would, by way of contrast, tell them how many years, after they first dangled the bait before the eyes of the electors, Mr. Gladstone and his supporters were before granting the county franchise. If Sir James Kitson does this he will find that the choice of the Unionist Administration in selecting next year for dealing with assisted education compares favourably with the record of Mr.

Gladstone. Besides, if the Gladstonians are in such a hurry to bring about free education, for which the country will have to pay, why didn't they themselves attempt the task wdien they had the chance And would they, if returned to power to-morrow, be likely to bring about the partial or total abolition of school fees before the present Government Every elector knows full well that this and all other matters in which the vast majority of the people are interested, would, in the event of Gladstonian success, be thrust aside for the Home Rule theory. Sir James did not score on this topic, and his one sided reference to it demonstrated the weakness of his powers of attack. A gheater contrast than that between the principles which animate the members of the Primrose League, and those justly attributed by Mr. J.

A. Brooke, at the annual meeting of the Huddersfield Habitation of the League on Saturday evening, to the Gladstonians all bent on destroying something it would be difficult, if not impossible, to imagine. For the success of the Constitutional cause it is better that this is so clear. The destruction of this or that institution, which has weathered the storms of centuries, may be an attractive policy to a few who hope, in some vague way, that profit may result to themselves. But in a commercial centre like Huddersfield, feelings of this nature should be more than counterbalanced by the consideration that upon confidence rests the foundation of our well-being.

If the party, the members of which are all bent on destroying something get their way, and the policy of destruction triumphs through the land, then may we expect another retreat like that of 1885, when Mr. Gladstone, surrounded by muddles of his own creation, rode for a fall," and left to his opponents the task of rectifying his errors, as far as they possibly could do so. Unless they are anxious for a repetition of the blundering and plundering policy which marked the administrations of Mr. Gladstone in both the Parliaments of 1868 and 1880, the electors will take good care not to vote for those who support an anarchical Opposition." It must not be forgotten that the restraining influences, which held Mr. Gladstone back from some extremes in the two Administrations mentioned, have been got rid of, and the pace would now be accelerated to a dangerous point should power once more be entrusted to him.

When next the electors are asked for their verdict there should be no hesitation between a Government suDDlvino that confidence which begets and maintains good trade, and ttie supporters of an Onnosition every member of wnicn seems OTm-newl in the sreat object of destroying something."

A formidable opponent, howsftv iKirlcircfinl.T remained in the Londnn Company, with whose water rights the proposed to interfere. It now appears that even i this great opponent might have been approached, for after withdrawing the bill, and incurring all the serious costs attendant on its promotion, the Cor poration collectively appointed a Consultative Subcommittee, "authorising them, and empowering them, subject to the confirmation of the Council, to enter into ana conclude all necessary and satisfactory negociations with the London and North-Western Railway Company, and all other parties, and to take all necessary steps for that purpose." That sab-committee appears to have done its work promptly and effectually, for a Special Council meeting is called for to-morrow to receive their report authorising the acceptance of the railway company's terms, and to pass a resolution that application be forthwith made to Parliament to reinstate the Bill. HUDDERSFIELD TRAMWAYS AND1 IMPROVEMENT BILL. (From rpv Xhe Huddersfield Tramways-and Improvement Bill, the object of which is to authorise the Corpora- tion to construct additional tramways in Hudders field and the adjoining townships, came, on Mondav, before one of the Examiners of Private Bills, in the House of Commons, for proof of compliance with the Standing Orders relating to BUch measures.

It was found that these had all been dulv observed, and the bill will consequently go back immediately to the House with the examiner's -certificate to this effect, and will be forthwith set down for second reading and committee stage.

Everett's, 13a, Salisbury-square, Fleet-street or at the Office, 146, Fleet-street. TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 1890. Vicuiis of the combination known by the name of the Plan of Campaign are still to be found in belaud. On Saturday twelve farms on the F'onsouby estate were taken possession of on behalf of the landlord. In each case the tenants were in arrears varying from four to six and a half years.

Each tenant had precisely the same offer made to him by the landlord, and it is no wonder we read that more than one gave up his holding with reluctance. This offer was the acceptance of one year's rent ou account of the rent and costs due, and the truant to be allowed one month to consider whether he would make any offer to purchase tiis holding. The reason why these generous terms were not accepted terms such as we should have to wait a long time to hear of from Nationalist landlord was because of the fxisleuce of the Plan of Campaign on the' ptale. The tenants are not victims to the oppression cf the landlord, for oppression there tauuot have beeu when arrears of this kind pert- allowed to accumulate, and tyranny would uot have felt any satisfaction in taking a moiety Cf the amount due. A portion of the money sfieut iu promoting the Plan of Campaign would have sufficed to keep these poor people in their tomes.

Had they been allowed to do exactly as thi-v pleased, there can be very little doubt about their choice. They would certainly have hkt-d to remain where they were. But the combination was too strong for them. Small blame a few isolated people if they prefer homeless- to lacing the terrors of a rigid boycott. It is uui.

they who are to be held in scorn, but those who. under a pretence of a feeliug for liberty condone, and thereby encourage, a system "I tyranny, cruulty, and oppression unequalled in the history of Ireland. Ii the time of Parliament will allow for its consideration, a Bill introduced by Mr. Tomlinson, one of the Conservative members for Preston, suould meet with considerable favour. The object of this Bill is to abolish the necessity for re-election after a member has accepted service under the Crown.

Subsequent to each general election there is a cry for the abolition of this custom, which was very well iu its day, and probably at one time necessary as some safeguard to our liberties. But those times have long by. In these days of publicity, when our public men live as it were under the gaze of the whole people, there is no need for the retention of a practice framed to suit other times and diftereut circumstances. Just when a new Ooverument is formed and the members are eager for work, a long delay has to intervene owing to the necessity of all the important officials having to seek re-election. The circumstances under which they took office are kaowu to the public.

In the old days office was Fery often a bribe, and in the absence of publicity electors had no means of knowing the reasous which led their representative to accept it unless he personally informed them. This was a strong argument in favour of the system which now prevails, but it has altogether lost its Jorce to-day. There is no need for such personal oaiinumcation in order to enlighten the electors. I hey know well enough, before their member tell them, of the reasons for and against any eourse he may have selected to follow. That DBiai; go there is now no good reason why, when a new Government is formed, they should not at once begin their work.

Without professing to be a great orator Sir Michael Hicks-Beach brings to the discussion of political subjects a fund of souud common sense, which makes his utterances well worth notice. Speaking at Bristol. u.i.uiuaj, we President of the Hoard of Tbade, drew attention to a fact which those who are so anxious for a dissolution appear to have forgotten. It would he unjustifiable for a Government, with a large majority in tl- House of Commons, to give up the reins when only half their work is done. Those who talk so much about dissolution forget that the constitutional way of bringing this about is by inflicting a defeat uponthe Government in the House of Commons.

A bye-section here and there, or the passing of a "insure which iray or may not prove popular, "ho'ild not inflii ice a Government in deciding uP'-u the time for making a further appeal to the iJ-Jutry. Only a defeat in the House of Com-'uona on a question of principle, or the near- of the expiration of the period for which ih. members were elected, can justify a dissolution. It may well be that those who are 'inpatient to try their fortunes at another THE TEETOTALLERS AND THE BUDGET. A meeting of the National T.niiif.r.tiKv.

Plaintiff subsequently ascertained who the purchaser was. brought au action to recover the profit the defendant had made bv the re-sale of tins which had in the meantime greatly risen in value, holding that the relation between them as solicitor and client was such that the former had no to purchase the rents otherwise than as a trustee.
