ANOTHER SCENE IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS.
(By Cable.) London, March 3. Outrageous scenes again occurred in the House of Commons to-night, owing to the obstructive tactics of the Irish members, several of whom made vehement and excited speeches. Mr Healey, member for Wexford, who was one of the most violent obstructors, was, by the Speaker’s order, suspended for the remainder of the sitting, and had to leave the House. Mr Dillon, the member for Tipperary, made an inflammatory speech on Irish affairs, in which he upheld the cause of the tenants, and justified their actions in shooting landlords who caused their evictions, and refused to accept reductions in rent.
