THE ISISH LAND PURCHASE SCHEME.
Mr Parnell surprised his supporters by advising Mr Balfour to apply thirty-three millions of money under the Irish Land Purchase Bill to secure occupation and ownership of lands instead of reducing rents. He stated that at present the money was going to graziers in Cohnaught and Munster, and implied that if Mr Balfour acted on his suggestion he would then accord the measure Ins support. He also suggested the immediate formation of a Board of Arbitration to deal with the Plan of Campaign estimates. Mr Balfour replied that as yet he was unable to discu&s the Irish Land Purchase
Bill, but he was much impressed with Mr Parnell's suggestion. THE LATE DOCK STRIKES. The Dock Companies are now complaining of the result of the strike movement last year, as expenses have been greatly increased, and this has caused a most serious hindrance to business. They also complain that the laborers only obey orders of Unions when it suits them to do so.
