ENGLAND'S RACK DOWN.
Gladstone's Policy Sustained by a Majority
IiOXDOX. ilav 11. Granville, in the
house of lords this afternoon, reply
ing to an interrogatory put by Mar
quis Salisbury, conservative leader,
said the government was unable at
present to make any statement of
their intentions respecting the
Soudan. In regard to the Afghan
boundary question, Granville said a
conference had been held between
himself, the earl of Kimberly, secre
tary for India, and Baron de Stael,
Russian minister at London, which
resulted in an agreement perfectly
satisfactory to England, Russia and
Lord Hartington, secretary for war,
stated in the house of commons this
afternoon that the decision reached
by the government in regard to the
Soudan practically involved the aban
donment of the advance on Khar
toum. Hartington, continuing, said
tho government had resolved to make
TVady Haifa the most advanced posi
tion for the permanent defence of
Egypt British iroops would bo with
drawn as soon as tho Nile rises. It
is expected that the rising will occur
about tho end of May. The with
drawal of troops involved the aban
donment of tho advanco on Khar
toum. This statement was received
with cheers from the government
benches. Efforts will bo made said
the war secretary, to establish an ad
ministration in the province of Don
gola, and to complete the Nile rail
way as a commercial enterprise.
Gladstone announced that he was
about to present to the lipuse some
most important papers in regard to
tho foreign policy of .England in her
relation with Afghanistan. Glad
stone then stated that an arrangement
had been effected bet-veen Earl Gran
ville, foreign secretary, Earl Kimber
ly, secretary for India, and Baron de
Stael, Russian minister to England,
and M. Lessar, special Russian agent
at London, in regard to the Afghan
frontier. The arrangement was satis
factory to her majesty's government
and to Earl Dufferin, viceroy of In
dia. He hoped tho arrangement
would be made subject to a conven
tion with Russia.
General Lord Wolseley, Lord Har
tington said, had advised the govern
ment to retire to Assouan from the
Soudan. General Wolseley attached
great importance to sending armed
boats to Eevnt. to bo used m natrol-
iiiig tbft.NileH.i.'IiQ -govemtneftt has
no intention, the speaker said, of evac
uating Snakem, until some arrange
mont can be effected for holding it
against hostile Arabs, either by Eng
land or some other civilized nation.
At present Suakem could not be held
without fighting. Osman Dignia, El
Mahdi's chief lieutenant, for many
months past has been besieging the
place, and has frequently declared
himself determined upon driving the
garrison into tho Red sea. Therefore,
tho holding of Suakem was a military
and not a political question.
In regard to tho projected railway
from Suakem to Berber, Lord Har
tington said ho was unable to state
what was the definite intention of
tho government, but ho thought he
would soon be able to make a state
ment of their intention.
Henry Chapman, conservative for
Middox, Lincolnshire, asked how
much the government had spent on
the Khartoum expedition, and if the
sum was greater than tho $22,500,000
mentioned in tho S55,000,000 vote as
the sum requested for the Soudan
Gladstone replied to this interroga
tory, and said the government had al
ready spent a great deal of money in
the Soudan, but were unablo to say
at present whether any portion of the
822,500,000 would be saved. Glad
stone then moved for tho second
reading of the consolidated fund bill
fthe S5o,000,000 credit). m He urged
his motion in a speech, in which ho
declared he was unable to understand
the differences which existed on this
subject between the opposition and
tho government. He urged tho house
to aToid every unnecessary issue just
No sooner had Mr. Gladstone quit
Bpeaking than tho conservatives op
ened upon him and his government
tho bitterest -attack within their pow
er to make. This was led by Lord
George Francis Hamilton, member
from Middlesex. Lord Hamilton is
being strongly pushed forward by
the tories as leader in tho commons.
He was under secretary for India
from 1874 to 1878, and spoke with
some degree of authority. He secured
occasion for making his attack by
moving consideration of the notice of
Sir Stafford Northcote, present con
sorvative leader in the commons, of
last Friday. This amendment is on
the second reading of the consolidate
fund bill for a fresh vote of censure
against tho government, and con
cludes in tbo following werds: "Tho
house having shown their readiness
to vote supplies, refuse their assent
until informed of the present policy
and purpose for which the -money to
be granted is to beapplied."
Lord Hamilton, in moving consid
eration to his amendment, said: "The
Right Honorable Marquis of Hart
ington, secretary of state for war, has
just made the most extraordinary
statement which over fell from a mm
ister in this house. After announc
ing their intention of taking Khar
toum tne government have an
nounced to-night their intention of
abandoning the Soudan, after having
murdered 6,000 or 10,000 men. Yet
the government expects this house
silently to acquiesce silently in their !
policy. The greatest danger to a
country is incapacity of men in office. ;
(Conservative cueers; The govern
ment have surrendered every one of
the questions between them and Rus
sia. Tlio prime minister has alto
gether abandoned tho attitude by
wli'ch the government obtained a
vote of credit. The great objection
thai I havo to the premier's policy is
that, from tho very day he assumed
office until now, ho has shown a
readiness to sacrifice anybody and
anything to save himself. (Cries of
Chamberlain, president of the board
of trade, taunted Lord George Ham
ilton with inconsistency in asking
for information from a government
that could not be relied on. Cham
berlin said the house would be un
able to adequately iudgo the con
duct of tho government until all the
papers in the case were presenten.
He contended that the object of Sir
Peter Lumsden s mission had to a
great extent, been achieved. Ho was
glad to find Lord George Hamilton
advocating tho position that faith
should not be placed in Russia, and
the only course was to go to war.
When the general elections come,
the covernment would remind the
opposition of their policy, and it
would then bo seen whether the
country was tired of peace.
Lord Hamilton's jnotion was de
feated, 200 to 2G0. Tho majority con
sisted entirely of liberals. Parnell
ites voted with tho minority. The
houso received the result rather list
Speaking of the opening of the
quail seasons in California, the San
Francisco BuUeten says: "They aro
now so abundant that they throng
tho roadways. AVhilo rewards are
offered by farmers in southern coun
ties lor Killing mis uiru, wnion des
troys much grain, the Alameda and
Contra Costa farmers say tho quail is
useful to them. It attacks their grain
only as a last resort, and chiefly
subsists upon insects. Their des
truction of ants is of incalulablo im
portance. The quail's great foe is tho
wildcat Tho latter animal is prolific
in the counties named. A qnail nest
ing will cover fifteen to twenty e'ggs,
and nearly every egg will hatch.
They nest once a year, and during
such periods tho male is a most pug
nacious defender of the mother and
young. A man may almost strike
him with a club. The wily wildcat,
as large as four ordinary .cafe, -will
stretch himself out and put out his
tongue; tho male quail will approach
and peck it, whereat the cat seizes
Irs toDthsome prey."
W hat Do the Druggists Say I
They know what the people call
for, and they hear what their patrons
say as to whother the medicines they
buy work well or not. Martell &
Johnson, Rush City, Minn., say,
"Brown's Iron Bitters gives entire
satisfaction to our cusiomeis.
Kliukhammer & Co.. Jordan, Minn.,
say, "Yc sell more Brown's Iron Bit
ters thau all other bitters combined."
L. E. Hackley & Son Winona, Minn.,
say, "All our customer speak highly
of Brown's Iron Bitters." A. C.
Whitman, Jackson, Minn., Bays,
"Bitter's Iron Bitters is giving good
satisfaction to purcasors." These
are only a few. We have hundreds
more just as good.
A man purchased a barrel of salt in
Concordia, Kan. and, on opening it,
discoered a ten-gallon keg of fine
whiskey, which doubtless had been
placed there for other parties and
directed to the wrong person.
It has been suggested that a peti
tion should be drawn up and circu
lated among tho merchants of this
place, asking Capt A. M. Simpson to
run the steam schooner Beda to this
harbor twico a month, and bring up
all tho San Francisco freight, and if
possible call into tho Columbia and
secure what freight was offered at
Portland and Astoria on the same
trip. This vessel would give us
speedy communication with San
Francisco, and be equally as comfort
able as an ocean steamer. Let some
one take hold of the matter at once.
