Tua Garden vClty VTnlUa Awny With the
Prize Onoe More Juno Third Do-
elded Upon as the Kvuntfnl
WASitiNQTOif, Doo. 12. The Republican
National Committee mot at tbe Arlington
l!otl at noon. The meeting was promptly
JcaPed to 01 dor by Sccrotury Martin, and
"Senator Sabine, of Minnesota, was unanimously
cliobon chairman, to succeed the
lato Jowoll. Senator Fryo, o(
Maine, nt once took the iloor and spoke .in
favor of his iirotwsition for a chango of the
basis of representation In future conventions
The Arlington was crowded with delegate!
from Clilcago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis,
Saratoga and other places, waiting an op.
portuuity to appear before tlio Committee,
to impress upon them the advantage of
each city over others as the proper place to
hold the convention.
At '& p. m. tho debate on tho plan of representation
was suseniled, mid tho
over until later in the day. A
resolution fixing Juno 3d as tho (Into of the
convention was adopted. Arguments then
commenced as to the placo whero the convention
will bo held.
After all the delegations from tho various
cities had beon heard, a somewhat animated
discussion was held, the general drift
of which was largely In favor of Chicago.
On a vote being taken, it was shown that
the Garden City had the prlzo, it being
the second ballot to hold tho Convention
thero on the dato appointed, June
3. Tho delegations from Philadelphia and
Cincinnati wore especially disappointed as
prior to tho decision, mid up to tho very
last moment thoy had beon qulto coulldint.

Speeches by a. Number of Leading Irish
Dublin, Doc. 12. The grand banquet
tendered to Mr. Charles S. Parooll, in connection
with the testimonial presented, wua
given in tho Rotunda. It wus a magnificent
affair, and over COO persons sat down
to dinner. The hall was decorated with tho
National and American colors, and tho tables
laden with ilowA's and patriotic de-
vices. There were no less than twenty-four
members 'of Parliament, closely identified
with tho Homo Rulo party lntcrosts, present.
Charles Dawson, M. P., Lord Muyor
of Dublin, presided and mado an address.
Many congratulatory telegrams which had
been received from America and England
wero read amidst cheers. Mr. Michael
Davitt, In an extended address, said that
the Irishmen of to-day wero little better,
than: slaves, and were working out a
bontence of political servitude from which
their'own hands alone could free them.
Tlibymust look to" themselves, and active
or'diroct interference from abroad must
not and could not bo oxpectod. To-night
they had gathered to express their gratitude
and do honor to Mr. Parnell, who was
not only their leader in Parliament and at
ho(nu, not only their trusted champion, but
the prime minister ot the will of the Irish
nation cheers and applause Mr. Thomas
Soxtoti, tho mombar from Sligo, was received
with cheers, and was applauded
whon ho said Ireland's strength increased
with England's growing weakness. England
was not only no louger mistress of the
beus, bltt her, commerce was decreasing and
her trade monopolies were being lost to her.
Iroland was resolved to bo free, and would
bo free cheers. The Lord Mayor read an
address and made the formal presentation
of a check representing 38,000 of tho popular
subscription testimonial. The audience
was very enthusiastic as llr. Parnell
appeared on the platform. Ho was thankful,
he said; to rind evidence there was so
many who, like himsolf, sympathized with
the trembling and tenantry,
whoso condition was little bettor, and
often worse, than thatpf tho South African
negroes. Ho sympathized oven more
deeply with tho laborers, who were
no better than slaves of slaves, and whos
lives were simply one. prolonged struggle
for. existence. To sustain an existence as a
nation iinder such clicumstancca was
Out of those outrageous conditions
aroso tho .National Leaguo overwhelming
an oppressive landlordism. This uprising
of an overridden people Parliament hod
chosen to call a Schemo of gigantic robbery.
Not only was this false, but no
national movement had been mado agaiust
any such odds as wero against the Irish
people, with equal discretion and utter absence
of crime and passion. Tho people
had stilled their feelings or controlled
them, and decided by the law, which
has, however, not helped their wrongs.
He referrtd briefly and forcibly to the fact
that tho British Government should have
thought it necessary to overrun the country
and placi fearful and law-abiding cltizent
under surveillance of regular troops to the
number of 30,000, and to make it thcii
duty to support a police and constabulary
force of 15,000. The writ of habeas
pus bad been often suspended of lato,, and
tho lato lamented Chief Secretary ("Buck-
shot") Foitor had imprisonod over a
thousand Irishmen without any
ruse. Tho present Coercion
act was the boat result of tho concerted
work of all England's best lawyers and
statesmen, aud tbe outcome of much study.
Under it neither tho life nor liberty of any
man was, or could bo, assured. Ho
erately ridiculed the appeal of Lord Hai
Ington to abandon the mothods which had
been employed 'to oppose English misrule.
Thoro could never be any amalgamation
between the Irish party and the .Liberals
until af jser tho Coercion Act hod been repealed'
and ttfo Ministry had abandoned its
jpolicy of forced emigration.

Washington, Dec. 12. Thos. Peit, of

of the Houso ot Representatives.
In the Houso, Mr. Willis (Ky.) asked
leave to have printed a petition, very
largely signed, asking an extension of the

"I object" from Mr, White (Ky.), whose
hostility to the whisky mon was so frequently
manifested iu tho last Congress.

What Certain Cons;risHin Sny of Them.
A story was circulated to tho effect that
Speaker Carllslo had requested Representative
Morrison, (HI. J to select ft majorltyjofj
the Houso such members as he" thought1
would best roprosont his, Carlisle's, tnrlll
views in the committeo on Ways und
Means, and that Mr. Morrison hud been
embarrassed In his first effort In that direction
by the declination of Hon. Randolph
Tucker, (Va.,) to serve on the conn
mittee. It was htnted that Mr.
Tucker's principal objoction was , to
serving as "second fiddle" to Morrison. In
conversation on tho subjct Mr. Tucker
authorized tho denial of the story saying:
"I have hoard the rumor but thero Is nothing
In it, and you can bay that there wllf
not bo tho least difficulty In engaging the
Ways and Means Committee. As to the
statement that I will not servo as 'second
fiddle' to Mr. Morrison, it is all bosh.
Whether or not I will act as a member of
the Committee on Wnys and Means Is a
matter respecting which I havo not talked,
and at this timo cannot do bo."
The following self-explanatory conversation
subsequently occurred between Representative
Rullos, a prominent Republican
Member from Indiana, aud a reporter :
"Havo you heard unythlng of the rojwrt that
tbo Republican Members are joining certain
Deinocratlo Members for the purpose
of hurrying tho passage of a bill to abolish
tho present internal revenue laws,
reducing tho income tax to a minimum and
of rovisiou of the tariff 1"
"Oh, yes, tho matter has come to mo,
thero is such a schemo on foot." '
"Will it Micceed I"
" I think not, I presume a largo number
of tho Democratic Members could be enlisted,
but I don't tlilnk that vory many
Republicans will favor it that is, not
enough to glvo it a majority in tho House.
Thero is a large element of Democratic
members who would probably prefer to
abolish tho internal revenue system to revising
tho tariff, but I hardly think there
is a majority, even with Republicans' who
would prefer that to a tariff revision."

ThcrDTT Goids Trade."
Nkw York, Doc 12. As a wholo'tho dry
goods trade has been quiet the past week,
but there was a freer movement in cotton
fabrics from first hands. Several of tho
most popular makes of "bleached cotton
wero reduced to low prices to closo out, and
largo sales of , a few leading styles were
made to jobbers and tho shirt trade, but
tho volume ot business done in this was
hardly up to expectations; and by no means
encouraging to manufacturers. Jobbors
are aware too many goods aro being made,
aud aro more or less apathetic, under tbo
belief they will find difllculty in stocking
' up at present prices. Tho Jobbing trade
was dull, but a' fair distribution ot goods
was mado by most of tho principal houses,
while heavy winter fabrics, such as wool-'
lens, flannels, blankets, cloaks and under-'wear
wero mostly quiet Holiday goods
oontinuo active in both first and socond'
hands, though it cannot be denied the demand
lacked tho spirit of former years.
