United Preas Association—Per Electric Telegraph.
London, May 26 Mr Ttelfour offered Tuesday for a vota of censure it' Sir Q. Cauipbol!-B;maernaan would pledge himself to pravenb a recurrence of an outrage on decency and fair play, and indicated that the Hon. A. Lyttelton would speak early, and himself later, hir 11. Cainpbell-Banuonnan replied that if ho gave an undertaking he would be usurping the authority of the Chair, and added that Mr Bali'onr's departure from invariable practice had px'ovoked disorder. When there was a direct imputation of dishonorable conduct, Mr Balfour ought to have explained immediately. Mr Balfour refused to accept such a doctrine from Sir H. CampbeU-Bannerman. Sinco a motion of ceesure would deal with the whole of the question of the Colonial Conference, it was perfectly reasonable for the Government to speak as it chose. There was no ground for disorder if ordinary procedure bad been adopted. Mr Balfour fixel Tuesday, since Sir H. Campbell-Bannertaan had givon a pledge ia "grudging, stumbling language." The Liberals shouted "No pledge."
