In commencing he _ stated that he wolud introduce no subject of controversial chai-acter, and therefore he refrained from criticising the action of Lord Chelmsford. When, however, he had described the death of the Prince Imperial, he stated that he would only speak of brave men that evening, and therefore ho must ask to be excused from saying anything about Lieutenant Carey. This remark, which was uttered with considerable emphasis, was received with some cheers, but almost immediately a volley of hisses was raised, and cries of “ Withdraw that statement!” and “Why did did you spare Chelmsford V’ wore heard above the din.
