Sir William Harcourt Scored
the Government Policy.
London April 13. At a
banquet given by the Eighty
club tonight Sir George
Trevelyn presiding Sir William
Vernon Harcourt the liberal
leader charged the govern-
ment with shrinlcinor from a
definite vote on the employ-
ment of the British forces in
Crete. He" said that the eov
ernment had introduced the
absolutely new constitutional
doctrine that it belonged to
the government to aravup
the opposifion's resoiutions.
This was an intolerable piece
of tyranny. The government
did not want a definite resolu
rion but an indefinite one.
Referring to the European
eoncerr he said -the opposition
desired Great Britain to be the
friend of all States but the
instrument of none. Personal
ly he did not believe in being
drawn1 into what Lord Salis-
bury called the federal legisla
ture. If the European concert
had any commolf sense at all
the Cretan question would
have been'settled long ago on
the only proper basis namely:

The Appointments Made Meet
With General Approval.
Washington April 13 The
naming of three commissioners
by President. McKinley under
the art of the last congress to
promote bimetallism was the
snbject to considerable disens
sion about the capitol today.
Almost without exception the
selections were commended.
Senators regardless of party
were pleased with the selection
of ex-Yice President Stevenson.
It appears that this selection
was the president's own no one
appearing to urge his appoint-
ment. The president denired a
democrat who stood high in his
party and wiio was an earnest
silver man. He stnt for Mr.
Stevenson and after talking the
subject ovnr with his decided'

Presidnnt McKinley said that

bimetallism would h lifted

should be those who would
work in harmony toward bring
ing about an agreement. It was
also belisved by the president
Jhat the name of Mr. Stevenson
would give the commission
grat weight ahroad.
Senator Woh-ort said that
appeared to be a. mistaken im-
pression that the commssfion
was appointed with the purpose
in view of having it represent
