Declared Out of Order.
Washingt. n, December 2nd. — The cloture
re»oluiion, i -;ed by Aldrich to-day in the
Senate, prov. j&t that when a question shall be
considered far c. reasonable time it will be in
order for any Senator to deT and that debate
thereon be closed.
Ou such demand no debate will be in order,
and pending such a demand no other motion,
except one to adjourn, shall be made.
It such a demand be seconded by a majority
of tho Senate present, the question shall forth
with be taken thereon without debate. If the
Senator detiics to close debate on any measure
it ihall take precedence of all.other.buoinessauri
tho question shall be on all pending amend
msßK vpon the measure in its successive stages
eccording to tte rules of the Senate, but he
shall be permitted to speak upon the measure,
indexing aX amendments, nut more than once,
and not exceeding thirty minutes
If the Senate shall have decided to close the
debate, at herein provided, no motion shall be
in order but a mr.tioa to adjourn or to take a
reoees. when such motion be seconded by a
majority of the Senate. When either of such
motions are lost or failed on the second, it shall
not be in order to renew tbe sjune until one
Senttor shall have spoken upon the pending
mtasure, or one vote upon the same shall have
inteiTeaed. Pending proceedings under this
role, no proceedings in respect to a quorum
shall be in order until it shall have appeared
up;n s division or on taking the yea and nay
vote that a quorum is not present and roting.
All ouertions of order shall be decided with
out debate and pending proceedings under the
rule, and uo obstructive or dilatory motions of
any kind will be in order.
Aldrich presented n resolution to apply to the
above rule, pending the elections bill, ft is not
probable that any action will be taken on the
rnla before next week.
The programme of the Republicans is believed
to be in this line: At a convenient time the rule
is to ba oailed up, when tho Republican major
ity is lit hand. When the Democratic Seouio's
aiiuapt to attack with the intention of talking
it to death, or until the first of March, the pre
siding cflicer will rule debate not in order
Taking the stand on the broad ground of
mneral parliamentary law, that motion to cose
delate would in its.-lf bn defeated by debate,
which must, therefore, be out of order, as was
roled is the British Parliament wneu the cele
brated cloture rule was adopted against the
vigorous opposition of tbe Irish members.
What follows no one can say, but it the rale
caFrles the elections bill will come very near
tha stttute books.

Kllraia, the Fighter, !<,ucs a Pugilistic
Miw Ych'.k, December 23<1.—In conversation
with a frieud prior to his departure for his home
at Baltimorp, Jake Kilrain gave his reasons for
accepting the California Athletic Club's offer of
a 81,3*0 pursa for his fight with Godfrey rather
thaa battle for a turse of a similar amount in
one of the Eastern Athletic clubs.
Kilrain said : "I am anxious of going to Cali
fornia for several reasons. The main object of
ray vitft, of course, will be to meet Godfrey. I
■hall go there next month, so as to get used to
the climate. lamin as good condition as ever
I have been in my life, and really feel stronger
and more active than I ever felt before. It I de
feat Godfrey, and I have no doubt that I will, I
shall be in the field for a match with some
crack heavy weights, for they will all lie there
in th« course of the next two months.
"The first man I will go for will be Corbett.
He wiU either have to fight me or leave the
Pacific slope. I shall open up negotiations for
the championship, whoever may hold it. The
present iadications are that it will be either
Slavin, Jackson or Corbett. The first-named, I
think, will be the man. From what I have
heard and rtad of .--lavin I think he is a better
man than either Jackson or Corbett
"I shall challenge the champion and try and
win back the laurels that I lost fighting men
when I was not in good health, let alone con
dition. I will guarantee that I will not enter
the ring attain unless I am in tiptop order and
then if I get whipped it will be my own fault."

in the House of Commons shows that Hennehsr,
the nominee of theanti-Purnellites. was elected.
Honnesay's majoiity was 1,146. There was lit
tle or no excitement here this morning. Messrs.
Parnell, Harrington, Redmond, Scully, Hen

early hour awaiting toe official announcement
of the result.
firrTTf r December 23d.—Immediately after
the Slieaff officially aniounced the result of the
polling th« Parcellites present moved in a body
to the front of the Court-house, and then, with
a cheer, hoisted Parnell on theirshoulders. Par
nell was on the point of making a speech when
Timothy Rnd Maurice Healy appeared.
Trouble immediately ensued. Finally Par
nell, in order to prevent what seemed to be a
disgraceful row, asked the police to induce the
Healys to withdraw. The police promptly acted
upon Pacoeira suggastion and the Healys were
prevailed upon to depart.
Pamell resumed his speech, saying he would
not be turned aside from hi 3 determination to
do his duty to Ireland. Seeing that the result
of the contest in North Kilkenny was brought
about by conspiracy Pancll added that he
would go through Ireland fighting every elec

not cause despair.
At the meeting of the National Committee to
day Wm. Murphy said Parnel! had disregarded
Ireland's voice, and it would be necessary to
stop him in his m&d career by every legitimate
means. The committee was directed to start a

completely destroy the pest.
