SALISBURY ON IRELAND.
Tin: ill-omened alliance between
the tories and the Parnellites has
not lasted long. Conceived in
fraud, sustained by insincerity, it
naturally ends in collapse. The
tory premier puts in the queen's
mouth the strongest possible de
nunciation of the policy to -which
Parnell is committed, and an une
quivocal announcement that his
remedy for Irish disorder is more
coercion. tlI shall look with con
fidence," says her majesty, "to
your willingness to invest my gov
ernment with all necessary powers
to enable it to cope with the
growing evils in Ireland.1' This
menace, read in conjunction with
, the resignation of Earl Carnarvon,
who was disposed to try a concilia
tory policy as viceroy, means
mischief on an extensive scale. Al
reacty, says the S. F. Chronicle,
we hear that Lord "Wolseley is to
be ordered to supersede Edward
of Saxe-AVeimar as commander-in-chief
in Ireland. It looked as
though, the congratulations which
Parnell lately received on his
successful management of the elec
tions were premature. It even
seems possible that the votes which
he threw to the tories, and without
whif.h Lord Salisbury would now
have had no pretense to hold office
as prime minister, might be the
means of bringing upon Ireland
sufferings even greater than those
of the past.
The best hope for Ireland would
seem to spring from Mr Glad
stone's desire to deal justly and
liberally with ii. His conscien
lious sense of duty is too high to
suffer him to be diverted fiom his
purpose by any feeling of resent
ment at the conduct of the Parnell
ites. But the difficulty is that
partly in consequence of the sup
port given by them to the tory
candidates at the elections, Mr.
Gladstone cannot command a work
ing majority in the house. It has
been reckoned that the liber
al party lost thirty seats by
the defection of Irish voters. Had
these seats been filled by liberals
Gladstone might have been able
to get through parliament a meas-
ure which, though not all that
Parnell wanted, might still have
been a step toward home rule. A?
it is, he cannot command the votes.
It must be remembered that it will
be hard work for him to keep his
own supporters in the traces when
he attempts to legislate for Ireland.
That was an ominous letter of the
Duke of Bedford's to the Times,
in which he says that the course
which Mr. Gladstone proposes to
pursue "strains his party allegiance
to the breaking point." No whig
nobleman in England wields more
influence than the brother of the
late Lord John Russell. He
might have been prime minister
over and over again if In had
chosen. When he say thut a
policy looking toward home mle
"strains his parly allegiance" one
wonders where the votes are to be
had to carry out any such poliry.
The queen's speech seems to
prefigure a dissolution of parlia
ment. Of course after sm-h plain
menaces ol coercion, Parnell can
not cast his eighty-six votes for the
administration. It will hold office
at the good pleasure of Gladstone.
And as he cannot either form a
government without Irish votes, it
would seem that there is no al
ternative but to appeal to the peo
ple once more. It will be hard on
impecunious politicians to put
them to the expense of a new con
test so soon, but the government
must be carried on somehow, and
unless the tories should agree to
support Gladstone or the liberals
Salisbury there can be no govern
ment with the house constituted
as it is in the twenty-third parlia
ment. Such short-lived parlia
ments are not unprecedented.
Eighty years ago George III dis
solved the Third parliament before
it was five months old because
Lord Grenville could not carry on
the government -with it; and again,
in 1S31, William IVdissolvecfpar
liament six months after it had
been elected in order to give the
people an opportunity of electing
members pledged to a reform of
the franchise. A dissolution at
this time would probable result in
an overwhelming majority of lib
erals. Tin: Pioche, Nevada, Pucord
says: "The mountains and desert
on the Utah side of the line are
again becoming alive with the
brethren who have been transgress
ing the laws by taking more wives
to their bosom than they are legal
ly entitled to. While out hunting
cattle the other day a rancher
wandered over and out into the
big desert, at the lake, where he
discovered a caravan of the breth
ren, consisting of four wagon loads
a party of underground tourists
hiding in the wilderness, while the
officers of the law were seeking
them through the small villages in
the southern part of Utah."
Tiieke is one thing we never
could understand, and that is, why
a man in financial difficulty should
commit suicide. A man gets in
debt aftd can not pay. He gets
nervous over the fact, becomes de
spondent, walks the floor of nights,
and finally goes and kills himself.
This is very absurd and illogical.
Why does he not let his creditor
get nervous, become der-pondent.
walk the floor of nights, and kill
himself? He is the man that's
out of the money. He is the one
to feel anxious.
The Tacoma SVcf says: ' The
exodus of the Chinese from this
city developes daily some indisput
able facts of its beneficial effects
on the city. Testimoiry of a cu
mulative character is fortified by
the fact that where during the
nine months prior to the Chinese

one applicants for county relief.
On the other hand, since their de
parture the county officers have
only had occasion to listen to the

WILL ADMIT WASHINGTON.
Washington', Jan. 2L It is an
nounced to-day that the senate com
mittee on territories has decided to
recommend the admission of "Wash
ington territory and spent a day in
putting Mr. Voorhecs's bill for the
purpose into shape. The most im
portant amendment will make some
changes in the geographies nest year.
The committee malce3 the panhandle
of Idaho a cut-off. and sticks it on
to Washington. The present south
ern boundary of Washington is to be
extended east to Salmon river, which
is for tho most part eastcrl i in its
course to the Bitter Boot mountains.
These mountains form a natural
boundary between Montana and
Idaho, and are to be the line between
Montana and Washington. The tract
of country north of Salmon river to
the British possessions is nearly as
large as Vermont and New Hamp
shire, and consists of three counties,
including the Cceurd'Alene county
and the Xez Perces. People out
there have had to travel between 250
and 300 miles to attend their legisla
ture, down at Boise City. As they
live along the Northern Pacific they
will find their new relations much
more convenient for business.
The committee is regarded as favor
able to the admission of Montana as
well as Washington.
WHAT IS SAIO.
It is said that Henry States, Unit
ed States commissioner of the dis
trict of Alaska, has preferred charges
against the collector of customs, Col.
Peter French, at Silka. These have
been forwarded to secretary Man
ning, and accuse the Alaska collector
of making $15,000 in a year illicitly
by conniving with smugglers. The
charges further states that it would
be of great benefit to the service to
have collector French removed.
Mr. Coleman, who recently visited
Alaska, says that Carroll's can
nery, at Kassaifs bay never paid even
the expenses of the man who was em
ployed as foreman. It is said to have
been a failure from the start He al
so says that Captain Carroll owns a
controlling interest in the Idaho.
Captain Carroll is the only man of
all the steamship masters running in
to Portland who has a special license
by which he is allowed to pilot the
Idaho in and out over the Columbia
river bar. All the other steamship
captains are required to have pilots
on the bar.
