POLITICAL NOTES. THE BURIALS BILL TO BE ABANDONED. THK LORDS" AND THE HARES \f" AND UASBITS BILL. 'Q MIT Gladstone AND TIÎb < PEOPLE. I [araeiAL telso £ Lk! 1 tt SOM OUR GALLERY CORRESPONDENT.] HOUSE OF COMMONS, Thursday Nightir> Lord Hartington's statement to-night on the business of the Session was conspicuous for not having the slightest reference to the possibilities of the Prorogation. The simple fact is that the Government mean to carry out the principal portions of their pro- gramme, and when this is done it will be time enough to think of holidays. In spite of rumours, and counsels to the contrary, they intend to carry both the Employers' Liability Bill and the Hares and Rabbits Bill. The Burials Bill will not be proceeded with this Session. Though Lord Hartington declines defi- nitely to announce its withdrawal, practi- cally it is abandoned till next year. There was a large assemblage of Peers in the gallery to hear the anticipated statement. It is expected that the Lords will pass the Employers' Liability Bill without much difficulty; but what they will do with the Hares and Rabbits Bill remains undeter- mined. It is probable that they will not take upon themselves the responsibility of thxowiqg it out, though they may con- siderably modify it in Committee. The cir- cumstances of these two Bills are very different from those which made it possible for the Disturbance Bill to be thrown out with safety. In the House of Commons the opposition to the Bill, though persistent, is numerically small. It is promoted by a united party, and whenever divisions are challenged, it is approved by overwhelming majorities. These features are conspicuously absent from the Disturbance Bill. Though the prorogation has not been openly discussed on the Treasury bench, it has entered into the calculations of the Government. I understand that the 24th is the day which the Cabinet have in their minds for winding up the business of the Session. They are pre- pared, if necessary, to sit latar, but it is difficult to see how the House could rise earlier. Mr Gladstone is now on a fair way to recovery, and the only fear is that his pro- gress towards perfect convalescence may be retarded by his anxiety to be again at work. It is in accordance with his urgently- expressed injunction that his colleagues have determined to carry out to the letter the programme he indicated when lie recently addressed the House on the subject. The cordial concession to his views, and the general satisfaction expressed amongst the Liberals that the session is to be one of ac- complished work, will be likely to set his mind at rest. There is no foundation for the statement current in some quarters that he intends to appear again in the House. No definite decision on the subject has been arrived at one way or the other but his present intention is to leave town for Hawarden at the earliest possible date. In a day or two a personal communi- tion will be made, through the newspapers, expressing his- profound thanks for the spontaneous manifestation of sympathy that has reached him on his sick bed.
