London, March 3.
The Star, Mr, T.P. O'Connor's paper, commenting on the proceedings in the House of Commons in relation to the Cleveland street scandal, says the Liberals intend to protest against Mr. Labouchere's suspension in such a manner as to deter the chairman from making such a ruling as that on Friday. The Star also accuses the government of culpable remissness in enabling "titled criminals" to escape punishment for connection with the scandal.
The Pall Mall Gazette demands of Lord Salisbury the appointment of a Commission of inquiry to decide who is to blame for the escape of the criminals. The Globe denounces Mr. Labouchere for his insolence and sys his political trade led him to endeavor to connect the government with a nauseous scandal and to pose as a hero and a martyr. The conservative members of Parliament intend to demand that Mr. Labouchere be compelled by the House to name his authority for the statement in the House of Commons last night regarding the conversation between Lord Salisbury and Lieutenant General Sir Dighton Probyn in relation to Lord Arthur Somerset.
It was reported yesterday that Sir Knolly's private secretary to the Prince of Wales, was Mr. Labouchere's informant.
