There were many ladies present in tiic crnl- leri£8. Tlie roynl US.HOIH was (,'iven to the local frovernment bill. Tl»o <iuoen's speech was then n'nil and the house ud- journed. 'J'he queen's sjiecoh was puve- ly formal, only tlft«:eii lines in length. The ()iieijn thanked tlio commons for tho supplies granted and concluded with the remark that she anticipated lasting advantages from the laws enacted. Lord llosiibury spent the morning conferring with thu cabinet ministers and, apparently based upon this conference, there is in circulation a report that John Morley will retain his position a* chief secretary for Ireland. Tlie cabinet situation is complicated by tho death of Baron Tweedmouth, father of Edward Majoribunks, the liberal whip, who may bo made a cabinet minister, his name being- prominently mentioned in connection with the office of (secretary of state for India. This would add another peer to tho cabinet and still further enrage the radicals, who have already declared their intention to upset the government should a peer be made premier. One of the sisters of the new Baron Tweedmouth is the countess of Aberdeen, wife of the governor general of Canada, It is said to bo definitely settled that the earl of Klmber- ly, secretary of state for India and lord president of tho council, will become secretary of state for foreifi-n affairs, in succession to Lord Rosebery.

The Irish Independent, of Dublin, a Parnellite organ, contains an article saying that a* Mr. Gladstone has now retired it will be necessary that full assurance be obtained from Lord Rosebery that the ffoTernment's borne role policy shall be continued. It adds that only on this condition can the Parnell- ite« continue to support the liberal government. On this point, the paper declares, Lord Bosebery must chow hi* colors immediately. The W/lsh members of the boas* of common* are concerned deeply in the situation in view of the early place promised by tho jfovernment for the Welsh disestablishment bill in the next s-essfoni but the general feeling U one of confidence that Lord fiosebery will carry out the promises mode by Mr. Gladstone. The Irish nationalists say they do not feel as I* they h'«l any ri«ht to take part in tho agitation over the leadership of tho liberal party, but, stronfT in tho past promises of the gor- ernment and their own strength, they rely upon tho jfovernmont g'ving 1 practical Attention in duo pourse to the Jrlih claim. ,.'"• Congratulates His Successor, -^jl^;Gladstone, has written a letter to .!?* . ] Bar!
