THE IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.
[By Electric Telegraph,—Copyright. [Per Press Association.] WORRYING THE GOVERNMENT. LONDON, August 15. (Received August 20, 1889, at 10 a.m.) Owing to the lateness of the season many of the Ministerial supporters are absent from London, ond the Government have experienced some very small majorities. In consequence of this, the provisions of the Tithes Bill have been altered, giving a remedy against the occupier, he In his turn being able to recover from the owner. The alteration has brought the Ministry into grave discredit. The Speaker ruled that the Government’s changes in the Tithes Bill constitute a new measure, and it has consequently been withdrawn. Mr C. W. Gray, M.P. for Maldon, and an independent Tory, has introduced a new Bill similar to the Government measure. It is expected that it will be read a second time and then abandoned. The Government will introduce their Bill again next year. The papers urge that in the meantime very severe punishment should be inflicted on tho non-payers of tithes, who number fifteen thousand, and include the mayors of nine parishes. Mr Samuel Smith, member for Flintshire, will move the rejection of the Western Australian Bill.
