The openinfxif the House of Commons
l this mornlna; was attended with great
disorder and it was wtth gTat diffloulty
that any degTM of order could be main
tained. When Mr. Balfour entered the
disturbances were of a nature that made
It impossible to distinguish which was in
the majority, his friends or his enemies.
As he appeared In the' entrance he was
greeted with cheers by his friends and
hisses by his opponents. For several
minutes the hall was In such an uproar
that the. call to order could not be heard
and the rapping; of the gavel sounded
. like the dapping- of .hands, men rose to
their feet, waving their arms frantically..

while others in rage shook their fists. in
the faces of their neighbors, shouting
with all their might that the object of
their hatred be thrown from the hall.
The vast assembly had worked Itself
Into such a condition that when Wyndham
came into the hall he was greeted with
cat-calls and hissea from the Irishmen,
that were so oud as to utterly drown
the applause of his friends. Finally or
cur was restored for a few minutes, how
ever, It was impossible to control the
disturbing element for any length of time
and before any business of any conse
quence had been discussed the tumult
commenced again. At times it looked as
if the entire assembly was on the verge
of a riot.
Balfour attempted to put a motion giv
ing government bills the preference. Th
and O'Donnell became very boisterous.
Wien ordered to sit down he rushed
across the floor and shook his fist In
Balfour's face. Pandemonium followed,
the Irish yelling "Send for the police!"
"Bring the horse guards!" etc. The vote
to suspend O'Donnell carried by 840 to 40.
He had to be forcibly ejected amid a
scene of the wildest uproar ever seen In
lbs House.

Governor EIcBride Visits Portland
and Speaks of His Railroad
-V Commission.
- The appointment ot railroad commis
sioner la the-state of Washington will
undoubtedly affect railroads which have
their headquarters In Oregon, but which
operate in part In Washington.
. This 'statement was made this morning
hy Governor Henry McBride. to a Jour
nal reporter at the Unloa depot Gover
nor McBride arrived in the city last
night and left on the train this morning
for Xastera Washington, whore ha la
schedule to address several . political
meetings. The Governor denied that his
visit here had any political algalflcanoo,
stating that ho came down simply to vis
it an old. schoolmaster of his whom he
had not seen for twenty years.
"A plank for the establishment of a
railroad commission In. my state," said
the platform of both political parties, and
the only chance left to the railroads, who
bitterly oppose the Idea, Is to bend all
their energes to obtain the election of
such representatives to the Legislature,
Irrespective of party, as will violate the
party platform, or, at least neutralise the
effect of the commlMloh by so restricting
Its authority that it will be without ade
quate powers."
In answer to a querry as to how such
a commission would affect such roass as
the O: R, & N. whleh does a very con-
siderable business In Washington, Gov
ernor McBride said:
' The commission, as outlined by me,
will have full power to fix rates on all
business carried In my, state, and I will
recommend also that the Legislature eon
far upon It authority which will enable it
my. state bf tko -railroads at a fair val
uation.' This assessment has been done
hitherto by the County Boards with very
variant results, due doubtless, to the dif
ferent effects of the railroad attorneys'
eloquence upon the various boards.
"There is no desire upon my part nor
upon the part of anyone with whom
have consulted, to do the railroads any
thing but the fullest justice, but there Is
an unalterable desire to see that the bur
den of taxation does not fall as hitherto
with undue: weight upon the small prop
erty owner who Is unable, even should he
so desire, to conceal any considerable
proportion of his assets, or to deceive the
assessor as to their value.
"The eommhwlon, while It will endeavor
to fix such rates as will bo entirely equit
able both to the shipper and to tae rail
roads, wlIL of course, bo unable to define
the rates that shall bo charged by any
road beyond the boundaries of the state
of Washington. Thus, while It will be
able to name., the charge per ton on
freight carried by the O. R, A N. be
tween Spokane and the Oregon boundary,
It will not have any authority over the
tariff between Spokane and Portland.
"Will the rates fixed by the commission
be final, that is, will the railroads be
compelled to accept them?"
"By no means," answered tbo Gover
nor. "The railroads will be able to ap
peal any disputed question to the courts
and to . obtain any redress which the
ocurts may deem right My whole Idea
In Initiating, the movement for a railroad
commission was to obtain for the people
dependent upon tha, shipping facilities ot
the railroads, reasonable rates; to make
Impossible the present .system f secret
ebater"toavored shippers, a system
whose existence is strenuously denied by
the roads, but which is patent to every
observer, and to abolish the iniquitous
lobby which the railroads- havo main
tained for years at the state capital and
which Is in Itself both a menace to .good
government jand jiga, board which, all
who run may read.

Law Enforcement League Will ICause the Arrest of Sheriff

The crusade of the Law Enforcement

as having no personal feeling against any
of the officials and will endeavor to treat
them all alike.

thoroughly tested. I furthermore believe
that state regulation and control of cor

It optional for the Mayor to say which

4:30 o'clock, after deciding that the dele
gates' convention will be held Monday
In this city, and there will be no resump
tion of work until after the meeting.
WILKESBARRE, Pa., Oct 18.-Thls Is
the day of rejoicing throughout the an
thracite region. If there be demanded
proof of the sincerity of the stand that
has been taken by the miners during the
recent unprecedented Struggle between
employer and employe, it is necessary on
ly to witness the masses of women and
children who crowd before the bulletin
boards to ienrn the slightest bit of news
conflicting Interest.' ;': ;
The woroen are crying for Joy, Unre
strainedly, and there IS such demonstra
tive manKestatIon,of the exultation over
the ending of the long period of privation
and troubles of all sorts that' the scene is
One never to b forgotten Jay those ?who
are witnessing: t,i.,;r r .
. There Is an almost child-like simplicity
In the conduct of the vast' number of
people who; compose the miners' families
and sympathisers. They express: grati
tude ro John- Mitchell and feel kindly to
watds tho President The action taken
by both Is as much lauded as the attitude
of the operators Is excoriated. . However
the latter' b sins are forgotten today for
the moment In the general rejoicing over
the happy ending of the strike, and the
people are looking forward to resumption
Of work with gladness of heart and de
vout thankfulness that troubles are at
glvan ,atVe man- who wiab their f aftbful
families have endured heroically such
hardships as have entailed real' suffering.
That they have won the great battle la
due largely to the magnificent- support,
accorded them by the hundreds of union
organizations throughout the country,
and they also accredit the public Press
with kivul devotion to their interests.
The anthracite region, populous ud
buy when the .wheels of. industry re
volve, will again take on the wonted life
and peace and plenty will again come to
the thonsands of worthy men who have
lor so long been denied opportunity to la
bor and provide for their people.
WILKESBARRE, Pa., Oct 16. The
convention of the Executive Board of the
Mine Workers which was In session to
day la reported to be in full harmony
with the views expressed by President
Mitchell in hla offlolal communication re
garding the settlement of the strike. In
the face of this fact It .has been practic
ally decided that a convention of the
strikers will be called for Saturday and
an effort made to have work resumed
throughout the anthracite coal region
Monday If possible.
What occurs from now on In the situa
tion is expected to be a mere matter of
form, as It Is thoroughly understood by
all concerned that the strike Is now at an
end. It Is almost assured that the con
vention call 'will be Issued today after a
short session of the officials who now
have the matter in charge. It will re
quire at least a day to Teach all the lo
cal unions and great efforts Will be madi
to get the delegates at once In order that
mwxrwrss-ww m'tne yroceodiaia."
If. la expected that the local unions will
elect delegates at special meetings which
will be held tonight and tomorrow night
the delegates elected will meet In a con
vention in one ofthe prominent towns of
the coal district ' There Is considerable
speculation as to what town the conven
tion will be held In, but it is the general
belief that Hazleton will be the place se
lected. , ' ,. , , T.
The"" Joy" of the miners la unbounded
and Tn every face which for months has
carried an expression of misery and anx
iety, hoping day after day that some ac
tlon will be taken to relieve the terrible
suffering of the TWIves and children of
those- who have sacrificed their all In
order to live up to the principles of the
union, is the reflectionjo.f ;the,.yIc.lory. bo J
bitterly fought for and won. The count
enance which a few days ago portrayed
naught but sullenness and determination
today is beaming with sunshine. The
hand which was ready to give a blow la
now outstretched to grasp that of a fel
lowman. Happiness, that has been un
known for so long a time, is now supreme
and not a cloud is seen to mar the bright
horlson of peace that now aheds Its light
over the entire region of the strike. .
