ones, which the republicans if they are
wise, will remove before they step down
and out of power.
A lnnerns' l anllae..
During the campaiun recently closed
republicans were frequently heard to e
pres themselves to the effect that Mr
Cable was a "danirtroua" candidate.
Very seldom was a republican found who
was candid enough to admit tnat Mr.
Cable would be elected. The result of
the election proved that be was more
than "dangerous." in fart fatal t J repub
lican hopes and aspirations.
Now, the Chicago Tribune has been
taking a perspective view nf the con
gressional situation in Illinois two years
hence. It says:
The federal officials, judging by the re
suits In the counties and districts where
lory reside, will not he able to show re
turn for favors extended in the next na
tions! republican convention the procctd
ings of which they will view from aloft

chances are this will be bis last term in

elect republican congressmen in 1893 if
the reruhlicans in conuress will he Id lust
little, and it mtv be some man can be
discovered who will defeat Ben Cable,
who trimmed up Congressman Gest.
Here is a frank admission by the Tii
bunt that Mr. Cable the only Illinois
democratic coogrefsman-elect in a close
district whose reelection in "82 is prscti
cally rs ured. It being therefore already
admitted upon high republican authority
that Mr. Cable's formidability will not
lose any of Its force within two years at
least, tbe Ahous presents his name to tbe
democratic congressional convention of
1892, with the same feeling of confidence
in his election as it did in 1990.

Expose of the Position of the British
Borne Raters as to the Caase Cum
sneats on the Manifesto.
Loxpos, Xov. 29. ParneU has Issued
the following manifesto:
"To the Ikish PEOPLE: The integrity
and independence of a section of the Irish
parliamentary party having apparently
been sapped and destroyed by the wire
pullers of the Liberal party, it has become
necessary forme, as leader of the Irish
party, to take counsel with you; and hav
ing given you the knowledge which is in
my possession to ask your judgment upon
a matter which it now devolves solely upon
you to decide." Paruell then refers to
Gladstone's letter to Morley, which he says
was written to influence the Irish party in
their choice of leader, and to declare the
right of the English Liberals to veto Irish
action not conformable to Liberal views,
and proceeds to say that the independence
of tbe Irish party is the only safeguard to
Ireland. He declares the threats of
tbe Liberals that denial of this right of
veto will indefinitely postpone borne
rule to be insolent, and insists that such
denial will not so result
A Political Secret Made Public.
These considerations, Parnell says, com
pel him to give the Irish people informa
tion which has heretofore been in posses
sion of only himself and certain Liberal
leaders, which information, he says, will
enable them to understand "the measure
of the loss with which you are threatened
unless yoa consent to throw me to the
English wolves now bowling for my de
struction. In November of last year, in
response to a repeated and long-standing
request., I visited Mr. Gladstone at Ua
wartlen, and received the details of in
tended proposals of himself and his col
leagues of the late liberal cabinet with re
gard to home rule in the event of the next
general election favoring the Liberal par
ty. It is unnecessary for me at present to
do more than direct your attention to cer
tain jMiiuts of these details which will be
generally recognized as embracing the
elements vital for your information and
for the formation in your judgment.
Liberal Pol ii U of Difficulty.
"These vital points of difliculty may be
suitably arranged aud considered under
the following heads:
"1. The retention of Irish members in
the interiiil parliament.
"U. The settlement of the land or agra
rian li!iicully in Ireland.
"3. The control of the Irish constabu
lary. ". The appointment Of tbe Judiciary,
including ' judges of the supreme court,
county court judges, aud resident magis
trates. "Upon the subject of the retention of
the Irish members in parliament, Mr.Glad
sione told me that the opinion and the
unanimous opinion of his colleagues and
hituseli, recently arrived at after a most
mature consideration of alternate pro
posals, was that in order to conciliate Eng
lish public opinion it would be necessary
to reduce the Irish representation from 103
Settlement of the Land Problem.
"Upon the question of the settlement of
the In nd problem, it was held that this
was oue of the questions which must be re
garded as questions reserved from the con
trol of the Irish legislature, but at the same
time, Mr. Gladstone intimated that while
he would renew his attempt to settle the
matter by imperial legislation on the lines
of t he land purchase bill of 188B, be would
nt undertake to put any preasnre upon
his own side, or insist upon their adopting
hi views. In other and shorter words,
that the Irish legislature was not to be
given the power of solving the agrarian
difliculty, and that the imperial parliament
Patting Them on Probation.
"With regard to the control 4t the Irish
constabulary, it was stated by Mr. Glad
stone that out of regard to the necessity of
conciliating English public opinion, be
and bis colleagues felt that ft would be
necessary to leave this force to
the apiMiiutineut of its officers un
der the control of imperial author
ity for an indefinite period, while
the funds for its maintenance, payment,
and equipment would be compulsorily
provided out of the Irish revenues. Tbe
period of ten or twelve years was suggested
as the limit of time during which the ap
pointment of judges, resident magistrates,
etc., should be retained in the hands of the
imperial authority." Paruell then says
that the above is the substance of the Lib
eral views as given in a two-hours' con
versation, mainly monopolized by Glad
stone, and proceeils to give his own views
THE IRISH CHIEFTAIN'S VIEWS.
Parliamentary Representatlua Iepends

I'urnell then continues: "And, firstly,
with regard to the retention of the Irish
members, the position I have always adopt
ed and then represented, is that with tbe
concession of full powers to the Irish legis
lature equivalent to those enjoyed by a
state in the American Union, the number
and position of members so retained would
become a question of imperial concern, and
not of pressing or immediate importance
for the interests of Ireland. But that,
with the important and all-engrossing sub
jects of agrarian reform, constabulary con
trol, aud judiciary appointments left either
under imperial control or totally unprovid
ed for.il would be the height of madness for
any Irish leader to imitate the example of
Grattan, who consented to disband an
army which had cleared tbe way to vic
tory. No Reduction Itaring Probation.
"I fnrthcr undertook the nse of every
legitimate influence to reconcile Irish
public opinion to the gradual coming into
fori of new privileges, and to the post
ponements necessary for English-opinion
with regard to constabulary control and
judicial appointments. But I strongly
dissented from the proposed reduction of
mem Iters during the interval of probation,
and I pointed to the absence of any suitable
prtmjieot of land settlement of either par
Lament as constituting an overwhelming
drug upon the prospects of permanent
peace and prosperity in Ireland. At the
conclusion of the interview I was informed
that Mr. Gladstone and all his colleague
were entirely agreed that pending a
genera election silence should be absolutely
preserved with regard to any points of
difference on the question of the retention
of Irish members.
Hold Fast to Every Safeguard.
"Let me say in addition that when full
powers are conceded to Ireland over her
own domestic affairs, the integrity, num
ber and independence of the Irish party
will lie a matter of no importance; but un
til this ideal is reached it is your duty and
mine to hold fust to every safeguard. I
need not say that the question the vitally
niiportimt question of tlie retention of the
Irish members on the jne hand and the in
definite delay of full power to an Irish leg
islature on the other, gave me great con
oern. The uiiseuce of auy provision for the
settlement of the agrarian question, of
any policy on the part of the Liberal lead
ers, filled me with concern and apprehen
sion. The Laud Purchase Bill.
"I'pou the introduction of the land pur
chase bill by the government, at the com
mencement of last session, Mr. Morley
communicated with me as to the course to
be adopted, kuvi:r; regard to the avowed
absence of any policy on the part of Che
Liberal leadera and party. With regard to
the matter of the land bill I strongly ad
vised Mr. Morley against any direct chal
lenge of the principle- of state-aided laud
purchase, and finding that the fears and
alarm of the English taxpayers to state
aid by hypothecation of grants for local
purpoaea in Ireland as a counter guarantee
bad been assuaged, I held that a hopeless
struggle against the principle of the meas
ure should not be maintained, and that we
should direct our sole efforts on the second
reading o the bill to tbe assertion of the
principle of local control." .

bill with a direct negative, and he agreed
on condition that he should not attack tbe
principle of the bill, but only its details.
He tnougnt It false strategy, but necessary
ont of regard for British prejudices. Then
the government dropped the bill until the
present session, and just before the begin
ning of the same Morley had another in
terview with Parnell, in which the latter
pressed upon Morley the policy of an
"W ilque" method of meetinar the bill: also
the necessity of providing for local control.
ana onerea to move sncn an amendment.
Morley seemed to agree to this.
AN ASTONISHING PROPOSITION.
Morley Makes an Offer That Amasea His
Home Rule Associate.
Says Parnell: "But in addition he made
me a remarkable proposal. Referring to
the probable approaching victory of the
Liberal party at tbe polls he suggested
some considerations as to the future of the
Irish party. Ha asked whether I would be
willing to assume the office of chief secre
tary for Ireland, or allow another mem
ber of my party to take the position. He
also put before me tbe desirability of fill
ing one of the law offices of the crown in
Ireland by a legal member of my party. I
told him, amazed as I was at tbe proposal,
that I could not. agree to forfeit in any
way the independence of tbe party or any
of its members.
No Absorption, Thank You.
"I considered that after the declaration
we had repeatedly made, the proposal of
Mr. Morley that we should allow ourselves
to be absorbed into English politics was
one based upon an entire misconception of
our position with regard to our Irish con
stituencies and of tbe pledges we had given.
In conclusion, he directed my attention to
the plan of campaign estates. He said
that it would be impossible for the Liberal
party when it attained power, to do any
thing for tbe evicted tenants by direct
action: that it would also lie impossible for
the Irish parliament under the powers con
ferred to do anything for them. And
flinging up his hamls with, a gestnre of
despair be exclaimed: 'Having been at
Tipperary, I do not know what to propose
in regard to the matter."
America Would Take Care of Them.
"I told him this question was a limited
one; that I did not see that he need allow
himself to be hampered by its future con
sideration; that funds wonld be available
from America and elsewhere for tbe sup
port of those tenants so long as might be
necessary. As I have shown, the
Liberals propose to do nothing for the
plan of campaign tenants by direct action
when they come into power, but I am en
titled to ask that the existence of these
tenants whom I have supported in every
way in the past, and whom I shall con
tinue to support in the future, shall not
constitute a reason for my expulsion from
Irish politics. .
The Concluding Appeal.
"Sixteen years ago I conceived the idea of
an Irish parliamentary party, independent
of all English parries. Ten years ago I
was elected leader of the independent Irish
parliamentary party, and during these ten
years the party has remained independent,
and because of this independence it has
forced upon the English people the necessi
ty of granting home rule to Ireland. I be
lieve that party will obtain home rule only
provided it remains independent of any
English party. 1 do not believe that any
action of the Irish people in supporting me
will endanger the home rule cause or
postpone the establishment of an Irish
parliament, but even if the danger with
which we are threatened by the liberal
party of to-day were to be realizedj believe
that the Irish people throughout tbe world
agree with me that the postponement
would be preferable to a compromise of
onr national rights by the acceptance of a
measure which would not realize tbe as
pirations of our race.
"I have the honor to remain your faith
ful servant. CH aP.ks S. PaRXEIX."
Resented as a Breach of Faith.
An important section of the Irish party
met in the hen-ee of commons last night
and resolved on active steps to combat the
influence of Parnell's manifesto, the issu
ance of which tbey resent as a breach of
fait h. The meeting adjourned in order to
obtain tbe opinion of tbe American col
leagues. It is expected that they will
issue a counter manifesto.
All tbe morning papers denounce the
document and declare that after this, no
British statesman will ever trust Parnell

POSTMASTER GENERAL'S REPORT.
Mr. Wanamaker'e Comments on Affairs Is

.l report of Postmaster General Wana-
iiitker forthe fiscal year ended June 90,
1 0. is made public. He reports a saving
if cXHO.OUO in contracts for postal cards,
t tamped euvelofies ami carrying the mails,
while at the same time tbe routes have
lieen extended over nearly 2,0u0,0u0 miles
ly railway, steamboat and stage; tbe gross
icvenue is nearly $5,000,000 larger than
ver before, and 5,000 new postofficea have
lcen established, while the postal clerks
liave reduced the nuhiber of pieces usually
.ent to the dead letter office by 2,000,000.
The Postal Telegraph Scheme.
In one form or another," says the post,
-n aster general, "the public imperatively
lemands cheaper telegraphy, and the puM
office department can supply it at less coat
.ban any corporation, unless the latter has
vnt, light and fuel free, and carriers and
olerks without pay." This statement is
wpportedby an extended argument on
the same lines as the argument made by
the postmaster general before tbe commit
tees of congress. He also recommends the
establishment of postal savings banks in
states having no laws regulating savings
banks, and in other states upon petition of
a considerable number of residents of any

the policy or wisdom of breaking the law.
aud the officials of the postotnee department
do not." He recommends the passage of the

Remarks About Civil Barrios Reform.
Of civil service reform in the department
tbe postmaster general says: "A year's
experience -on firms me in tbe judgment
formed twelve months ago that the civil
service system, aa applied to tbe rosters of
the postomoe department, is susceptible of
improvement. Tbe practice of tbe depart
ment shows that the inspector force, for
example, is more efficient as a whole If
eligible who have seen public service are
selected instead of those who have simply
been examined. 1 think it would
be impossible to find an appointing officer
who baa not been glad to take advantage
of stringent examinations to keep away
the mere political place seekers."
Removals from Office.
The number of presidential postmasters
removed during the last two years was
710. Of these 350 were removed on inspec
tor reports and 8H0 "for incompetency and
other causes for the good of the service."
Of the latter 219 had served for four year
or mora. At fourth-class offices the re
movals were 7,700 in ltvftl and 6,012 in 1890.
- Expenditures and Revenue.
The total expenditures for the service
during the year were $66,65,063; the reve
nue was $ti0,858,783, leaving a deficiency of
5,71,300. Compared with the preceding
fiscal year there was an increase of 4,170,

forces of tbe United States aggregate

inadequacy of tbe appropriation for the

pecially urgas tlie formation of cavalry

against their organization. Iu order to

Chicago, Nov. 29. Gen. Miles left for
Washington City yesterday in response to
a request of the secretary of war. He had
postponed his departure until the arrival
from Pine Ridge agency, the seat of the
alleged troubles, of CoL Ludington, of tbe
quartermaster's department. Tbis official
arrived yesterday and his report was to the
effect that the energetic action manifested
by the troops has had a moat salutary
effect upon tbe ratlskina. He added that
the anticipated danger might be considered
as fairly past.
Twas a Correspondent's War.
Tbis report tended to confirm the dis
patches received by (rt-n. Miles since Tues
day, as well as to strongly bear out the
theory that tlie extent of the redskin np
rising in the northwest had been more
than exaggerated. As one of the promi
nent army officials put it, "It was more of
a correspondent's tl aa an Indian scare."
Gen. Miles goes to the capital with tbe
recommendation that, with the view of
avoiding any possible trouble, the troops
now in service around the Indian agrnry
should be kept in tbe same localities until
spring. He is also strongly in favor of dis
arming and dismounting the aborigines;
not only during the present situation, but
for all time to come; ..
THE REPORT FROM PINE RIDGE.
hlng Is Pearcral and the Rrditkins
OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 2. Unless .all ad
vices from Pine Ridge agency are wrong,
it may be safely said that the war is over.
The next move is to mass the troops at
Fort Meade, S. D., then to await develop
ments of the winter. Tbe Fifth artillery
from Fort Riley, Kan., passed throngh
Cbadron yesterday, en route to Fort
Meade. Gen. Brooke's command at Pins
Ridge will be moved to Fort Meado Mon
day or Tuesday. Lieut. Taylor, of the
Ninth cavalry, with 100 Indians enlisted aa
scouts, among them Jack Red Cloud, Old
Red Cloud's son, have gone into camp at
Fort Robinson, where the Indians will le
trained as cavalrymen.
Had No Hostile Intentions.
The Indians who journeyed from Rone
bud to Pine Ridge were innocent of
hostile inteut ions. Tbey were a band re
cently removed from line Ridge to Hone
bud, and simply moved back to lie among
friends. Utile Wound has given ample
assurauceof his intention of abandoning
the ghost dance, and is moving his vil
lage from Wounded Knee to Pine Ridge.
It is rumored that he and several other In
dians are to be arrested. Gen. Hrouke ia
non-committal, further than to say that
there will be no news from the agency of
a war-like nature for some time.

to the scene for the purpose of breaking i p
the dance and arresting tlie leadeis. Ti e
police were soon on the ground, and mak
ing a charge succeeded in capturing five.
Very Inglorious for Chicken Head.
One was Chicken Head, who, like tbe
others, was armed, attempted to resist, bnt
the police were not to be deterred, and
Capt, Fi ret h under, chief of the police, who
ia a large, burly Indian, rushed in on him
and, grasping him arotmd tlie waist, car
ried him bodily to the Jail. It ia rumored
that another dance is in operation arveral
miles up the river, which is being investi
gated and, if found true, it will also be
promptly broken tip and the riugleaders
arrested. There is talk among the Indians
of going to the point hrlow White river
where the Roselmd and Pine Ridge Indians
have been congregating.
The faithful ladlaa Police.
But tbey are being closely watched, aud
if they attempt it tbey will have to walk
over one of the finest, most determined,
faithful and vigilant police forrea on tbe
the reservation. Tbey are doing their
work faithfully and promptly, and will
not be deterred from carrying into effect
any orders. It is not anticipated that
tbe Indians will commit any deeds of vio
lence here, but ithey should get away
and join the others tbey would un
doubtedly act with the majority. The

generally rated as worth fully JO,000, but
for nearly a month the firm has been freely
talked about on the street. The liabilities
are tl.SoO.OOO, and an assignment has been
made. Tbe cause of tbe failure is bed in

in such cases. No report of asset.
