SPEAKER ENDS SESSION
Refusal of Balfour to Answer Liberal
Attack Provokes Uproar Which
Lasts an Hour--Effort for
Fiscal Debate Fails.
LONDON. May 21 The sitting of the
House of Commons tonight was marked
by scenes of the wildest disorder, growing
out of a motion by Sir Henry Campbell
Bannerman to adjourn the House in order
that he might discuss the charge against
Premier Balfour of having violated his
pledge not to deal with the subject of
colonial preference without first appealing
to the country. Alfred Lyttlcton, Secre
tary of State for the Colonics, was put up
to reply to the Liberal leader, but the
members of the opposition shouted down
his every attempt to speak, even after
the Premier had demanded a hearing for
him. Finally, the Speaker, after he had
exhausted every effort to quell the turbu
lence, put Into force for the first time a
new rule empowering him to adjourn the
House In cases of grave disorder.
The matter came up at the afternoon
sitting, when Mr. Balfour, replying to
questions on the subject, said he did not
consider himself pledged to inaction in re'
gard to colonial preference except so far
as parliamentary action was concerned.
He reiterated that the government did
not intend to deal with the fiscal question
in -the present Parliament The matter of
colonial preference might, however, be
submitted to a colonial conference In IPOS,
even though the country had not previous
ly had an opportunity of expressing an
opinion on the subject. The decision of
the conference, however, would not be
binding cithdr on the mother country or
on the colonies without legislative action.
Uproar Drowns Speeches.
Sir Henry Campbcll-Bannerman, the
Liberal leader, charged Mr. Balfour with
violating the pledge he had made In his
Edinburgh speech and moved the adjourn
ment of the House to discuss the matter.
The debate on this motion came up at
the night session, and was marked by
scenes of the wildest disorder. The Lib
eral leader demanded a plain answer from
Mr. Balfour, and Alfred Lyttleton, Secre
tary for the Colonies, rose to reply.
The members of the opposition drowned
the efforts of the Secretary with cries of
"Balfour! Balfour!" After continuing for
ten minutes, Mr. Lyttleton sat down.
Winston Churchill then attempted to
speak, but the ministerialists drowned his
After a number of members had failed
to secure a hearing, the Premier rose to
a point of order and a temporary lull fol
lowed. Mr. Balfour said he thought it
highly improper that he should be imme
diately expected to follow the leader of
the opposition. He said he had never be
fore known the opposition to refuse to
hear a Minister, and he insisted that the
House should hear Mr. Lyttleton. as oth
erwise the dignity of the House could not
Speaker Adjourns House.
Mr. Lyttleton again made all attempt to
speak, but the uproar was renewed.
Finally the Speaker said it was obvious
that the scene could not continue, and he
attempted, therefore, to adjourn the
House under the rules empowering the
Speaker to take such action in cases of
grave disorder. The Speaker had been
unable to secure even a semblance of
order, howls and counter howls lasting
for more than an hour.
The scenes In the House created a tre
mendous sensation in the lobbies, which
were crowded with members discussing
every phase of the evdhlng's occurrences,
which were declared to be unprecedented.
The galleries were filled with peers and
other distinguishd persons, who gathered
in the hope of hearing an interesting de
bate on the fiscal question. They took
part in the cries for their favorites, thus
adding to the din, and afterward joined
the excited crowds in the lobbies.
Tonight's unprecedented and undignified
scenes grew to some extent out of the
Balfour-Chajnberlaln controversy with the
addition of heat engendered on the oppo
sition side by the Premier's alleged breach
of his pledge not to deal with the subject
of colonial preference without first appeal
ing to the country. The members gener
ally were in feverish expectation that the
debate -would Indirectly draw out the
terms of Mr. Balfour's answer to Mr.
Chamberlain's compromise proposals. It
was also anticipated that Mr. Chamber
lain himself would make an Important
speech on the fiscal question.
Attempt to Stifle Debate.
T,hus. when Mr. Lyttleton was put up
to speak Instead of Mr. Balfour, a storm
burst such as has not been seen Jn the
House of Commons since the days of the
Gladstonlan Irish debate. The opposition
interpreted the government's course as an
attempt to stifle discussion, although mod
crate members admit that Mr. Balfour's
attitude was perfectly correct. The Pre-,
mler himself, in appealing to the House to
permit Mr. Lyttleton to speak, maintained
that he (the Premier), was "a prisoner In
the dock," and ought not to be put on
his defense until he had heard the accusa
tions against him. Except when Sir Hen
ry Campbell-Bannerman taunted him with
being the sole cause of the disorder and
Mr. Balfour flashed rather an angry reply
the Premier was most composed through
out the sitting.
Mr. Lyttlcton also showed the greatest
self-possession in his difficult position.
Standing at the treasury table, flushed,
but immobile, times out of number he es
sayed to 6peak, always beginning "the
Prime Minister," and always being shout
ed down with. cries of "Balfour! Balfour!
Let htm defend his own honor; let hlia
fight Me own battles," etc
Irish Join in Hubbub.
Whenever the storm showed signs of
subsiding, the Irish Kcsberc 'Ma la,
helping the bubbub, until fi sally the Dep
uty Speaker, for the first time, put In
force one of the new rules adopted by
the present Parliament, era powering the
Speaker in cases of grave disorder to ad
journ the House.
The Liberal leaders afterward heia a
conference, and it is expected that a vote
of censure on Mr.' Balfour will be moved
tomorrow by Sir Henry Campbell-Banner-

WINONA LAKE. Ind.. May 22,-Amld a
storm of applause, without debate and
without a dissenting voice, the General

day voted 10 reunite with the Cumber

from the general body February 1, 1S10,
thereby bringing together the two largest
branches of the Presbyterian faith.

Dissenters Hope for Defeat.
The dissenters from the East and South,
who apparently made no concerted effort
outside of secret committee meetings to
defeat consolidation tonight declare that
the General Assembly opened the avenue
to defeat by referring to a committee the
work of arranging the details of consoli
dation. It is Intimated that the opposi
tion will take the question back to the
presbyteries of the Cumberland Church
and ask that it be reconsidered before
the committee on co-operation tnakes Its
report in 1906. Several of the Eastern
dissenters declare that the action of the
General Assembly was perfectly In ac
cord with the wishes of the opposition.
The proposed union wjth the Reformed
Church the general synod discussed, but
no action was taken pending action by

This is to allow separate presbyteries for
