1HB HAVMjAY HERALD THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 1 Ig81 Auctioneers Auctioneers PARLIAMENTARY HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Wednesday August 81 The House met at 230 pm cedes or BUSINESS The Speaker announced that in accordance with standing orders 51 and 71 he would at 730 pm proceed with the orders of the day whether or not the question then ibef ore the House was disposed of He would strictly adhere to thatirule'ih future and regretted that he had committed ah error in not doing soon previous occasions STONEWALLING Mr Collins moved the adjournment of the House He charged the Government with having deserted thoir colors and attempted to conciliate their foes rather than stand by their friends They were meditating a grievous wrong to the district he represented and although ho entered the House to support them he could no longer do so Sir George Grey asked that the ad jonrnment should be agreed to and that they should be allowed till 730 to consider the ruling lidd down by the Speaker after which an opportunity should be given for debating that ruling In reply to Mr Bryce the Speaker said it was competent for members to discuss bis ruling and if possible to show cause why it should not be acted upon Mr Hursthouse announced his intention of finally severing his connection with the Government party and that for the future he would be free to range himself on whatever side he might see fit Sir George Grey contended that the ruling laid down by the Speaker was unjustifiable If the House had become unmanageable and the Government desired to punish it for its refraotory oonduot he challenged them to dissolve Parliament and allow the point to be decided by the oountry The standing orders be said ought not to be interpreted by the Speaker for the coercion of the House The Speaker's attention was called to Sir George remark Sir George Grey said he did not intend to -impute improper motives to the Speaker All he aesired was to prevent tiie Speaker being placed in a position which would countenance the impression that he was using his authority to coerce the House Mr Gisborne said he took a similar view of the ruling He contended that the real question before the House was whether or not an important step should be taken until the matter was relegated to the electors for their consideration Sir William Fox said that there was nothing noble in the condnot of the Nelson members They were simply fighting for their seats The coercion proposed was not for the purpose of stifling a fair expression of opinion but to curb superfluous and unnecessary verbiage Mr fMacand rew counselled the Nelson members to give way and allow the business to proceed Mr Sheehan said he had not yet taken an active part in he stonewalling but he bad some bricks and mortar on hand and when the proper time came he intended giving his Nelson friends a hand in strengthening their barricade He reminded Mr Macandrew and Sir William Fox that they had both when the occasion suited them taken part in stonewalling or similar proceedings although they professed so muoh virtuous indignation against those now so engaged Mr Andrews quoted from the Timaru Herald an own telegram setting forth that be had gone in opposition to the interest of Christchurch upon this bill He denied that statement expressing surprise that anyone could have so grossly misconstrued his actions He had very clearly laid down bis views on a previous occasion and he still adhered to them Mr Wakefield spoke in support of the Speaker's ruling and complained that the action of the Nelson members in stonewalling by means of motions to adjourn precluded members from disoussing the real point at issue Mr Hall also upheld the rul- the firm of Wright and Edwards engineers of this SOUTH AUSTRALIA-

wiLINGTON GOSSIP questioned if there are xlot nowadays many oases of living bnrial not designed but occurring through ignorance or neglect It will barmy be denied that from time to time when exhumations have had to be made it has been found that bodies are in different positions to those in which kindly hands placed them in their coffins and the only reasonable explanation is that vitality still existed at tho time of the funeral Occasionally too there are more harrowing instances in which the supposed corpse has after being consigned to the grave managed to attract attention and has been rescued from that unutterably terrible position But considering the lonely Surroundings of any cemetery or churoliyord and how very few opportunities there aro for a buried person to communicate with the world it may be feared that intorments alive are more frequent than is generally supposed A case of the kind has just come to light near Beaune and is reported at some length in tho Revue Bourauianonne An unfortunate woman attacked by a fit of apoplexy fell into tho river and when her body was recovered the doctor certified that death had taken place and according to custom in that part of France she was buried within forty-eight hours The funeral rites were hardly concluded when the grave-digger heard a cry under his feet and the cure on being called also heard groans as if from the coffin below the Mayor likewise was a witness of the strange oircu instance and on exhuming the so-called corpse the woman was fonnd to be alive By means of friction the wretohed creature was restored but only as the report says for a single instant did she become conscious Almost immediately however she really did die and the next day was buried anew In all human probability the poor woman was killed not by the fit but by premature interment and the unspeakable terrors arising therefrom Now doctors are fond of telling us and we do not doubt that they believe what they say that the signs ana marks of death cannot be mistaken yet here and in other cases of which there is no doubt it is obvious that a mistake really was made and that a living being was buried instead of being restored to consciousness If such cases do become known at times when everything is against the discovery of the foot it is reasonable to assume that many instances occur whioh are never heard of and if that be the oase it is high time that seme steps were taken by scientific men to put an end once for all to the probability of such horrors taking place What would be the best means to that end it is not for ns to decide THE NECESSITY OF OCCUPATION The Rev Spurgeon speaking at tha Metropolitan Tabernacle from the text Gelations ii 20 observed that it had been asserted that the preachers of the Gospel taught men to live for another world and failed to teach them to live well for the present life Nothing could be more untrue for no more practical moral teaching could be inculcated than that of the faithful minister of the Gospel who really tanght men how to live here below It would be a pity if in the process of being prepared for the next life man became disqualified for the duties of this He (Mr Spurgeon) would venture to say that no lazy man oould have faith in God The believing man became an active man and he who believed nothing did nothing It was a mark of faith that when it oame into the soul it suggested activity It did not permit a man to remain listless and indifferent bnt made life lively and caused a man to wish to be doing something It was good for a man to have something to do and plenty of it The first man Adam though created in a paradise was given something to do God made him a gardener and his Eden would not be a paradise if he had nothing to do but to smell the flowers and observe the scenery The trimming of the garden gave a zest to his enjoyment thereof Occupation was necessary to man as man bat much more so was the active working principle of faith This faith in God oade men to be industrious Even He from his youth did not resemble the loitering son of a gentleman but the toiling son of a carpenter The principle of faith would not allow men to go through the world as loiterers It also aided in the choosing of a profession or career and in preventing the sad mistakes so often made in early life in the choosing of wrong callings whioh often occurred How were men to be so seen endeavoring to do what they were mentally or physically incapable of accomplishing the bird trying to imitate the fish and the ox endeavoring to enter into competition with the racehorse The precept 11 Make money honestly if you oan but make it was put on one side by this faith for tho true Christian would embark in no enterprise in whioh the Savionr himself would not have engaged AN ENGLISH GOLD MINE We (Time) have of late heard a good deal of gold mines and most attractive peculations some of them should be to judge by the advertisements but we doubt if many will prove as profitable as the one that we now purpose noticing which instead of being buried in this bowels of the earth occupies a lofty position on the Surrey hills and is a noticeable landmark through many miles of the surrounding distrusts The name of this valuable property is known wherever civilisation has reached as the Epsom Grand Stand a veritable Goleonda to those lucky individuals who rank as original shareholders The Epsom Grand Stand is no creation of mushroom growth for we have to go back as far as 1828 to find that the revival of the October Meeting on Epsom Downs had led to tho formation of a company for the purpose of building a magnificent grand stand capable of holding from 4000 to 5000 persons and in the October of that year the lord of the manor at his court baron granted to the company an acre of land for the purpose Directly the project was notified to the publio there were so many applications for the thousand shares of £20 eaoh that the task of allotment was most difficult This obstacle was however overcome and after the designs and plans had been submitted to the approval of His Majesty George IV who gave his gracious sanction to the project the following year witnessed the Epsom Grand Stand an accomplished faot It was originally intended that the building should fulfil a double duty During the race meeetings it was to be devoted exclusively to its legitimate purpose but at other times it was intended to let the entire building during the summer and autumn as a tavern or hotel and it was considered that the Btdubrity of the air and the extreme beauty of the situation would attract many to the spot The latter idea was however it may be presumed never carried out but as a grand Btand the speculation must have exceeded in its profitable results the most sanguine expectations of the most sanguine of its original shareholders (who looked at it through the most rose-tinted of speotaoles) for they are now receiving a dividend of some 40 per cent each of the original shares being worth about £130 and this although the venture even now when paying so splendidly is notin the flood of its Bnooess MR SUTER AND THE BRIGANDS A correspondent of the Telegraph giving further details of Mr adventure with the brigands writes One or two stories as related by the gang to Mr Suter round their evening meal will be snffioient to show not only their utter heartlessness and brutality bnt the pride they take in displaying these qualities Aristides one day oame across an old Turkj out shooting who hod with him his piece of forked stick which is used in order to obtain a better aim by resting on it the barrel of the gun Without the slightest provocation and simply for amusement as he termed it the brigand ohief strangled the man afterwords placing him in a kneeling position putting his fowling-piece to bis shoulder and resting the barrel on the cratch in the most natural position so that any passer-by wonld never suspect bat that ho was a peasant sportsman instead of ii corpse Another anecdote was told with great gusto Niko the chief of the band that took Colonel Synge caught a man near a sawmill whom he thought he recognised The conversation commenced thus 11 Did not yon once spy for me Did I not pay you five liras for so "Did yon not tell the soldiers in snoh and such a village that you had scon Then said Niko Take a bit of paper and pencil and write as I tell you This is the way Niko treats After this was done he first sawed off the right hand so that he should never write anything against him next he deprived him of bis ears so that he should hear no more questions abont tho band and finally out his tongue out to prevent liim from telling tales Then wrapping all these fragments in a handkerchief lie bade him walk to the nearest village to present them with a note to the Pasha The poor man not daring to refuse struggled on till he droppeddown and died from loss of blood I could enumerate several other outrages just as bad and of which I can guarantee the truth but I think these will suffice One word about the superstitions of these incarnate fiends The whole of the band by whom Mr Suter was captured were that is they belonged to the Greek Church and no less than seven had been in the Greek army in different grades and had deserted therefrom Now notwithstanding that every day of their lives is passed in perpetrating the most heinous crimes yet these men never begin a meal without crossing themselves and saying their prayers at night On the Greek Easter-day Mr Suter was surprised to find that each had his candle lighted and that after presenting one to the prisoner they would not begin to eat till they had crossed themselves three times each time the ohief saying Christ is concluding the ceremony by kiss-ingeaeh other allround includingMr Suter Every brigand wears a charm to preserve his flesh from being penetrated by bullets and faith they all pat in these things surpasses belief One anecdote is told of a member ef band who daring the Cretan insurrection was exposed on the top of a rook to the fire of the Turkish troops Presently he gave a shout and fell back saying he was shot but when examined nothing could be seen but a slight black mark where the bullet struck him This was all accounted for by a bine marble charm he wore and several men swore to the truth of the above story This pager has as its sale and special representative in America for the reception of advertisements and subscriptions The International Newspaper Agency Hubbard

SITTING The House resumed at 730 BEFBESENTATION BILL The Speaker ordered the clerk to call on the orders of the day the first of which was the consideration of the Representation Bill in committee Sir Reeves said he had a case of privilege to bring under notice but the clerk having read the order of the day for going into oommittee on -the Representation Bill the Speaker at onoe left the ohair without noticing what Sir Reeves was saying On the House going into oommittee Mr Seddon moved a new olauie to the effeet that only persons possessing the residential qualification should in future be entitled to the franchise Mr Beeves moved that progress' be reported He complained that the Speaker had left the tohair while he was drawing attention to a matter of privilege It was monstrous he arid that members should be ohoaked offin such a way He had not intended to move any bogus motion or delay business but he wanted a Committee of Privileges appointed to consider certain transactions between himself and certain members of another place as to the honorarium This was a matter seriously affecting himself and such a oommittee had been appointed in the Council Mr Sheehan supported and Mr Hall opposed reporting progress A long dismission ensued Eventually the motion to report progress was negatived by 42 to 21 The oommittee then proceeded to dis-quss the new clause proposed by Mr Seddon In the course of the discussion Sir George Grey said that if an absolute population basis was agreed to and provision made to confine eaoh individual to a angle vote in the eolony he believed the bill would pass that night and he would be glad to expedite its progress Mr Hall said he would willingly accept any assistanoe of the kind from the hon member Mr Sheehan urged the committee to adjourn to enable the grand meeting to come off between the rival leaders on a common platform He suggested that the Honse should vote a sum to paint an historical picture of the event Mr Speight spoke in favor of limiting every elector to one vote in the colony He denounced the bill as a delusion and a fraud in professing to be based on population Mr Beeves began to speak at 1130 and quoted largely from statistics of other polonies contrasting the figures with the proposals of the bill At one the oommittee divided on the motion that the Chairman leave the ohair Ayes 4 noes 25 Mr Sheehan then commenced speaking a bare quorum being present and most of them asleep on the benches well wrapped up for the night The Honse was still sitting at 150 It is understood that both sides are divided into watches BURIED ALIVE In the Dark Ages (says a writer in the Daily Chronicle) and even now in savage lands the most awful punishment known to man consisted in placing a still living victim in its final abode and every now and Main the world is horrified by hearing of homes being fonnd built up in old walls in circumstances leaving little doubt that they were so placed while conscious of ftud appalling fate But it may be i by tktkorath SPECIAL oobbbspondxnt Wellington Wednesday The stonewallers opened the ball this afternoon immediately after prayers and before the -Speaker had time to call for the usual petitions or notices of motion Some surprise was expressed at Mr Collins being allowed to speak before the preliminary business was disposed of bub it was evidently an oversight on the part Sir George Grey has now joined- the stonewallers He spoke for nearly two hours last night with unusual eloquence and effeet but his peedi was Somewhat marred by the acmrohejgave to the obstructionists the-" trusty little band he palled them to persist in their efforts "to the utmost He also further encouraged them by saying -that they were striving in a noble cause So of coarse it is a tnfling matter to Sir George that the bill he is now opposing is exactly what he has beqn ad vomiting' in the House and oat of it for years past (namely representation framed on'the population basis His action last night has been severely commented on by several of bis supporters and it is likely to lose him some votes in the future The Standing Orders Committee met tins morning and decided that rule 71 of tfie' standing orders provides that the Speaker may call on the orders of the day day at 780 without any reference to the question previously left unfinished Tfeej speaker intimated this afternoon that he should follow that course but it iBxpeoted -some other question will be raised so as to block the business for another night Jhe speech last night is braked as very injudicious and effectually disposes of any hopes of compromise' that may have been previonsly entertained Both sides appear dster-nunedto fight the matter out to the last Irmcerstand Ministers have had serious thoughts of resigning in oonseqnence of the helpiw situation in whioh they find themselves bnt they felt they oould not consistently do so in the present crisis Botn Mr Collins and Sir Hnrsthouse jifinly stated this of oourse with great regret that they had altogether broken with the Government party Mr Pitt spoke to the same effect some days ago and it is understood Mr Gibbs wiufPlidw suit This will leave the Government in a minority of four votes in the eftifit of nc-oonfutenee motion being propdileift'' OUB.
