PARLIAMENT " BLOVV3 IN." The Irish Question Bob* Up First Thing— GlHclstonu's Reception, LONDON, Feb. lu. — The opening of parlia-. mtnt was attendu.l with less excitement and in all respects quieter than any similar occai lion in many-y--nva, notwithstanding thu peculiar and grave character of the legislation which will occupy this session. Pyne, who successfully evaded arrest in Ireland for several months, and Qilbooly, against whom a warrant is alto In tha hands of the Irish police, were - in their eoata. O'Brien and Dillon are still in France. Gladstone, with his wife, drove to the house In an open carriage and was repeatedly cheered along tbe route. Al he entered tbe palace Bartlngton, who was standing by, stepped aside to allow him to pas*, but gave no sign of recognition. This act was tbe signal for an immense outburst of cheering for tbe "urand old man," and he gracefully acknowledged the tribute ty bowing. Salisbury was silently saluted by a small crowd assembled near the peers' entrance, but beyond this there was no demonstration in bis honor. After the quoou'd speech was read, a synopsis of the principal features of which ha* been published in these dispatches, the address in reply was moved by Wbarton, mem- IHT for R pon, and Duncan, member for Hoi- born. Saulsbury, in the course of the debute, referred to the case of the Orown Prince Frederic* Willlam, said, excitod deep solicitude In tbe political field ot Kurope. Regarding the great iMK-a of pi-act) or war In Europe, the pri me minister bald lie could only refer to the master speech of Bismarck. The treaty of Berlin,,#8 the chancellor bod shown, wag In the nature of a compromise. 11 was, at the same time, highly acceptable to England. (Ireat .Britain would not depart from 1m long-continued policy iu the east. • Salisbury e itirely tiharjd Bismarck's vlewu in favor of JHJOCH.

Tho ;overnment would bo prepared at the proper Ime to justify its assertion that crime and sonspitaey in Ireland has appreciably dlmln- shftd.^ No great change was contemplated ,n the rules of procedure by the government. The government did not dealre to secure a rnrty triumph by sucu means. It wished joth sides to have full liberty of discussion, rat it was nocwsary to stop obstruction, and t would be stopped. WALES WAS "ELEVATED." JDcrldedty Improper Condnct of tbe Com* | IMJ British King. | Ix)Nix)N f -Eob. 10.—The prince of Wales' |horse, Hobenllnden, won a racs at Kempton \Vednesdoy, and this rare event In the turf izperlence of bis royal highness so elated Jim tbat he went to the Opera Comiq'ia in tho evening to witness the new play, "The Bond of WedlcoX" In an extremely hilarious condition, Bccimpanled by some boon companion*. His hilarious mood developed hfter reaching the theatre, and the sound of loud talking which issued from tbe royal box immediately after bis arrival soon increased in volume until It seemed as though tbe occupants were vieing with each other in endeavors to discover which of them could shout the loudest In this way the audience and the actors were annoyed and interrupted for more than an hour, until it pleased the future king to betake himself, with bis party, elsewhere. The succen? of the prince's horse Is explained by tbe fact tbat there was only one other horse in the race, which obligingly : toll QII the track and left Hohenlinden the al- turnatir} of finishing as winner, or falling also. ^__ — T*ann<1ownA'ii Appointment to India,OTTAWA, Ont., Feb. 10.—Lord Lansdowne ' received tbe ofllcial communication tender, ing him the position of viceroy of India I Wednesday, and has accepted.

Y., Feb. 10.—The banquet iven Thursdi.y night under the auspices of be King's County Democratic club, In oele- ratlon of the anniversary of the birth of nmuel J. Tilden, was a notable event. Tbe assembly rooms of the Academy of Music ere Onoly decorated and ravers were laid or 310 guests. The limited number of [ckete was a source of much regret to the undreds of Democrata who made strenuous (Torts to secure invitations in order to bear be eminent sneakers who wore to bo present. Among the prominent people in attendance were Gov. Hill, Secretary of the Interior rilas, Bamnal J. Randall, ex-Oor. Abrwtt, x-Oov. Hoadly, Rev. Charles H.

Judge Van Wyck, of the city court, presided, and District Attorney Rldgway acted as reading secretary. A large number of etters of regret had been received from >romlnent Democrats throughout tbe ooun- ry. Great curiosity waa folt aa to the contents of the letter from President Cleveland, which had boon described by members of the committee who had road it as one of the strongest documents ever emanating from Mr. Cleveland. After full justice bad been done to the viands the Intellectual feast of the evening was begun by the reading of the president's otter, which was frequently applauded during its delivery: * President Cleveland, after expressing regret that it was Impossible for him to attend, said of Mr. Tilden: He taught the limitation of federal power under the constitution; the absolute necessity of public economy; the safety of a sound fcurroncv; ionpKty In puiillu place; the responsibility of public servants to tbe jwople; care for those who toll with thoir hands; a proper limitation of corporate privileges, anil a n-fonn of tin) civil service. His waa true Democracy. It led him to nie«t boldly every pnu-lr 1sano—ns It aroite.—With his conception of political duty he thought It neves too late to give battle to viulom doctrines and corrupt practices.

After the reading of the various letters toasts and responses were made as follows: "The President of the United States"—Response by W. F. Vllas; The State of New York"—Response by Gvoernor David Hill; "The Duy We Celebrate"—Kesponno by Hon. G'orgo Hoadly; "Our Country"—Response by Hon. S.«J. Kandall; "The Duties of the Citizen to the Union"—Response by Rev. Charles tt Hall, D.D.;; "The Sisterhood of States"—Response by Hon. Leon Abbott. In beginning his speech Governor Hill said: "The state of New York is proud of the memory of Samuel J. Tilden. Hli administration ot its public affairs was one ol the most brilliant and successful in ita history. When I speak of his life and publio services I speak of tbe state itself, because they are indissoluble associated. He waa born a Democrat, and it is especially gratifying that tbe intrepid Democracy of Kings county, who were bis true friends during bli whole political career, should be flrat to Inaugurate this, demonstration in his- honor upon this pleasant anniversary occasion," The governor then reviewed Mr. Tilden' services and characteristics. Among other Incidents be cited tha following: "Speaking of his confidence in young men Mr. Tilden once said to one of his supporters In tbe interior of the state: 'Did you ever notice a lot o: men moving logs! This is tbe difference—tbe old men grunt, and the young men lift' 'Hi added: 'That ia tbe reason I want to get the young Democracy on my side.' "But, notwithstanding this declaration, when political success came he did not forgel the old m#n who bad been tbe falthfu wheel-horses of the party for years, ant Cheerfully accorded—the old and tbe young alike—their full share ol honors - in tbe distribution of th legitimate rewards which can prop erly be bestowed for faithful party" services upon honest and capable men in thil free government of ours. Realizing the necessity of governing thli country by parties, he did not seek to deprecate active intelligent and efficient party service, bu •on the contrary encouraged it Neither die be assume to be better than bli party, nor did he ever forget tbe obligations which be owed to It for bis honors which It so worthily bestowed upon him. He appreciated tb labors ot ttiose who diligently sought to in cutcate tbe principles of Democracy, and to promote in a practical manner the'sucoeas o: thn Democratic cause." Governor Hill then spoke ot Mr. Tlldon's famous letter declining a renomination for president, and saying that the republic wai not dependent upon any one man for it» successful progress in tbe path of noble destiny Continuing, the governor sal): "Mr, Tilden was right While the Democracy was naturally reluctant to part wltl his active leadership they proceeded to se lect a new standard-bearer for that campaign from this state, to whom public attention had already been favorably directed. Afte nearly three years of successful adminlstra tiou of publio affairs it is safe to assert that tbe Democracy of the people of tho country made no mistake in their choice. "1 cheerfully reiterate what I said in substance about a year ago in this same pla< e, tbat tbe administration of President Cleveland has been dignified, conservative, hon eat, and In the main satisfactory to tb people of tbe country. There may be dif ferenoes among Democrats as tb detail! relating .to party management and as to tb entire wisdom of some matters attempt** and as to tho details of some measures pro posed, but such difference* among ft lends are inevitable overywhera In government, politics, and society in general. The prosperity and welfare of the whole people hav been greatly advanced by ttie advent of th Democratic party to power in tbe union, and wo may well rely, if no serious mistake •re made, upon tbe continued coufidwo* o "Our Eipublioao friend* should not t» d»- advMl or tnU&d, or bu over-jubilant M t&cir prospect* ia tb* *]>pro«cblttg content. »Mr« will tw ao divtakju awaeg Uw Duaoo* TURNED HIMSELF LOOSE. *. KANSAS STATESMAN EXHAUSTS THE VOCABULARY OF PHILLIPIC, 1e Addremnn the Horn* Market Club on tho Tariff Iisun. BOSTON, Feb. 10.—Over 4X> protpinent entlemen from various parts of the country ^tended the ..banquet given by tbe Home Market club at tho Hotel Vendom* Thursay evening. An informal reception was eld, afler which the guest* filed Into tho Inlng halls. At a round table in the center f the half v.ere thirteen gentlemen, one seat >?Ing vacant—that assigned to Governor )llver Amoi. At thli table, besides Bonator herman, were seated Hon. Nathan Goff, Jr., [on. William Osborne, Gen. William P. >rnper, Hon. Frederick D. Ely, Hon. A. W. eard, Hon. W. W. Crapo, Hon. William Russell, Hon. Theodore C. Bates, Hon. Charles H. Grosvenor, T. C. Search, and Hon. William McKlnley, Jr. The ceiling was profusely decorated with •armors, many bearing Inscriptions, while leavy festoons of bunting hung from every corner.. After the menu hnd been exhausted, 'resident Timothy Morrick, of the Home Market club, Introduced Senator Bhorman. 7pon rising Senator Sherman was greeted •1th cheers tbat sounded through the entire building. At Intervals of 100 words the peakcr was interrupted by applause, and ils remark* on several occasions drew forth hearty laugh from every one in his audience. In bis speech Senator Sherman said tbe borne market dealt W'th 114,000,000,000 worth of products produced and transported by American", while the foreign market represented only {1,600.000,030 conducted by 'orelgners. The theories of pure free trade ixclude love of country and consider only universal conditions. It looks only to the universal good of man. But the best we can do for mankind is to do the best we can for ourselves, and in congress, at least, we are Supposed to legislate for the United States exclusively. fc'herman said President Cleveland had removed more olllciats than any former president despite bis civil service professions, and lad refused to reduce tbe surplus in the practical ways open to him by paying the debt, aecause_ he_wanto<l to use it asji club to cnock down the protective system. The last congress would have reduced taxation, and the present one would do It but for the oppo- ition of the prenident and speaker, who wantei the reduction done in their way, or not at all. Mr. Lowell, though distinguished as a literary man, bad no perception of tbe interest and business of this great republic. Tbe speaker said the president's policy, if carried out, would increase tbe surplus, disturb business, check the country's enormous productions, Increase and harden competition bet ween Europe and American labor, reduce wages of all laboring men employed in protected industries and disM^b or break down large departments of industry now in course of successful operation. Instead of this he [Sherman] would carefully revise tbe tariff, admit free every essential, but noii'Competing, imported raw. material; abo all iion-oompeting necea- taries and coniform; grant protection to manufactory which can be with such aid conducted with reasonable success, and reduce or repeal the internal revenue taxes. In this way he would reduce the reveuue to tbe necessities of tbe government economically administered and the requirements of tbe sinking fund for the payment of the government debt, and in those government necessities be would Include proper appropriations for harbor improvements, coast defenses, increase of tbe merchant marine, transportation of mail to foreign countries and liberal provision for all obligations to the Union soldiers and their widows and orphans. Mr. McKlnley, the next speaker, delivered an argument in favor of protection. Tbe president, he said, had emphasized the issue as between free trade and protection, and those who believe in the latter policy would appeal from tbe president to the people. Hon. Nathan Goff also made a strong tariff speech. A Bad Place for Reporters. N*w YORK, Feb. lu.—The Herald prints a long dispatch from Ite correspondent in Pike county, Kentucky, reviewing the causes and the present status o> tbe HatQeld-McCoy feud, and describing the feeling of terror that pervades tbe scone of the bloody vendetta. The presence of troops on both sides of the Tug fork, the correspondent says, is needed tjadly—not to fight, but to restore confidence in law and order. In an effort to reach tbe Hatfleld stronghold Tbe Herald man was shot at from ambush, and be was forced to turn back without obtaining an interview. ' • Th« Builder*' Convention.

Hiram Pierce urged the necessity ol appointing the commission, and read a num ber of statistic* showing tbe inquity of the sale of liquor. •A. M.

H * is tbe author of the bill, and is very much in arneat Its advocacy and evidently not a friend o Jay Gould. Ho said tbe railway companies ad bartered away their franchises by enter- ng Into a contract with the Western Union, y which the railroad companies refuied to jerform their telegraphic sorv'cw, and by which they gave the Western Union an absolute monopoly over the western half of the continent Through the genius of tho most unscrupulous pirate of the ountry, "Jay-Hawk" Gould, that monopoly ad been created. The . pending bill was Imply a proposition to interject a little bit f God's burning justice between tbe people .nd Jay Gould. The people of tho country were praying for relief from the bowelltna, merciless grind of the most extravagant, normous, unscrupulous, piratical set of incorporated scoundrels on tbe continent This }[!! was a square blow between the eyes of ir. Gould, the Western Union monopoly, and each of the Pacific railroad companies, tying to them, "Gentlemen, there Is power n wealth and power in the combination of monopoly, but there is more power In the arm of the American people, and you shall ibey tbe law." White of New York said be bad a word of criticism to pass upon tbe title of tbe renting bill which stated that the measure was upplemental to tbe various Pacific railroad acta. If tbere had been perfect candor and .he' same free use of the United States tongue which bad characterized the remarks of the author of tbe bill to-day the measure would have been entitled "A bill to enable congress to get in ils work temporarily against 'Jawhawk Gould and the Western Union telegraph company." All the bill contained in reality was three or lour words' In the first section requiring the Pacific -railroad companies To exercise by themselves alone all tele- traphlc . franchises." It was that word 'alone" that furnished the gist of the bill and made it objectionable, first, on the ground of publio policy, and second, because the provlilon was repugnant to the constitution is interfering with vested rlghta. This bill a ad been brought to the attention of the Forty-ninth congress In behalf of tbe Baltimore & Ohio telegraph when It found it had telegraphed "not wisely but too well." That company had fallen Into the omnium gaih- erutn, .and the Western Union bad made a contract by which It bought the stocn of the Baltimore & Ohio company and ran its lines in conjunction with Its own. Dunham, of Illinois—Putting up rates. Wulte—Yea, _ putting up rates and putting down rates. Honors about easy on tbat point White then argued that viewing the matter in tbe light of public policy it was unwise for the government, which was tbe largest creditor of the Pacific railroads and waa interested in the managemeiii of tbat property that to entail legislation which would have the effect of reducing tha profits of those roads. The re suit of tbe arrangement bs -wee n the Western Union company and the Union Pacific Railroad company has been to i norease tbe telegraphic business of the latter company from 133,000 a year to tllO.OJO, and at tbe aame time the price bad been reduced from f 1.50 per -message from San Francisco to Omaha, to t) between Ban Francisco and atiy other place in tbe United States.
