London, June 13 to 15. Lord Salisbury, at a meeting of the Tory party, said the Government would stand by their main measures, to prorogue Parliament and call an early session next year. The Conservatives prefer to have an autumn session. ' ' ' A meeting of Liberal-Unionists supported the proposals of Lord Salisbury. The dissent of twenty Government followers caused groundless alarms to be circulated as to the fate of the Ministry. It is probable that Mr H. Matthews will shortly resign the Home Secretaryship. If an autumn session is held Mr "W. H. Smith declares he will retire to the House of Lords, and in that event Mr Goscheu will: succeed him as leader of the House. It is rumored that the Marquis of Hartington succeeds Mr Smith as leader of the House, and Mr Chamberlain or Mr Matthews as Home Secretary.
