        “I heard Mr. Parnell accept the Bill of 1886 as a measure that would close the differences between the two countries; but since then he stated that he had accepted it as a pro tanto measure… . It was a parliamentary bet, and he hoped to make future amendments on it.”—Mr. Chamberlain’s speech, April 10th, 1893.
