MONDAY, DlCSMBItR 1. 180.
The Atchison Chitmjio. the leading re
publican newtptper of Kansas, charges,
la the broadest language, that a conspir
acy has been formed to purchase Iogalla'
reelection to the United 8 ates senate.
The Champion Bftertt what is notorloua
In Kansas that ingalls bought tin flrtt
election 10 the senate eighteen years ago
and bis second election twelve years ago.
Perhaps It would be more accurate to say
that the railroad rorporationt bought
these elections (or him. According to the
Chami'lun there Is ft clear majority of
twenty pledged aniMngalls numbers of
the legislature, and yet Ingalla and bis
friends are boasting that he will be re
turned. Politics in Kantti Is, and al
ways bas been, as corrupt at in any other
tale. Ohio possibly eicepted. But re
cent events indicate that there is still a
public conscience in Kansas, and it is pos
tib e that it bas been saffldenlly aroused
to prevent Walls and his corporation
backers from buying his way back into
stilll M Maing.
The pangs of defeat are still rankling
in the breast of Congressman Gcst. He
teems incapable of taking the matter
philosophically or with that dignity be
coming a statesman of bis pretended rank.
Prior to starting for Washington bis dit-
gruntlement took a malignant form which
was only relieved -by an unusual flow of
anathemas directed at everybody who bad
refused to support him at the polls. The
wound was apparently, too deep, bow
ever, to be entirely healed by a single
rbetortcslexudallon. Reports From Wash
ington are to the effect that Mr. Geet is
still sighing and moaning at an alarming
rate. The Cblrago Inter- Oeean corres
pondent bas evidently taken compassion
on blra, for he sent the following to bia
paper on Saturday:
Representative Gent, of Illinois, ar
rived today. Ue went down with so man v
Otberi in thecyclone. But there are such
exceptional circumstances in his case that
the republican leaders are urging him to
make a contest. Word has come here
that absolute evidence can be furnished of
the improper use of money to defeat Uest.
and that the proof it to conclusive that
ven a democratic house could not so far
defy public sentiment as to keep Cable
Ik his seat. But to these suggestions Mr.
Oest answrrs: "I am too poor to make a
contest. There U no nse In attempting
any longer to run against two millions.'
While the suggestion of Gesl contest
log Mr. Cable's election appeals strongly
to one's risibilities, the congressman's re
flection on the intelligence and probity of
bit constituents is certainly reprebens
ble. No matter bow chagrined and dis
appointed Mr. Gest may be over bit de
feat, be it not justified in branding tbe
people of this district at bribe-takers and

Chicago, Doc 1.. Tbe Irish parliament
ary delegation now in this country raising
fund to proscenre the home rule agita
tion in Great Britain and Ireland, bas
been a matter of much solicitude by its
compatriots and (jladstonean friend on
the other aide of the water, the question
being practically: ''ilcj do yon stand re
tcardinu Parm-ll?" The party is com
posed of some of thtvmont prominent men
in tbe home rule ranks, and their opinions
were necessarily an important matter in
deciding upon the course which should be
pursued by the Nationalist party in regard
to the chieftain. This was especially the
case sinc-e the promulgation 0f the PnrneU
manifesto. - .
Well. They're "Agin" ParnelU
The delegation bas been boldinK con
sultations ever since the close of tbeO'Shea
trial, and late yesterday t hey arrived at a
conclusion and made it public. In brief,
it condemns I'arnell. Ot the six members
live sitfieri the document, and one, Har
rington, dissented. This manifesto waa
made public last night. It is addressed to
Justin McCarthy, vice chairman of tbe
parliamentary party. Tht document be
gins with a tribute to the genius of Par
nell as a leader, another to the work he
has done for Ireland, and an expression of
tbe regret with which they feel themselves
bound to give judgment in the matter.
It la I'arnell or Ireland.
It then proceeds: "The obligation to
express that judgment is to all of us the
Tunrt painful duty of our lives. No earth
ly consideration could have moved us to
mr determination exeept the solemn con
viction t hut we are driven to choose be
tween Mr. Farnell and tbe destruction of
our country's cause. So painfully alive
were we to all that might be involved in
the loss of such a leader that we eagerly
co-operated with our colleagues in every
effort to retain his influence in our coun
sels. The manifesto which Mr. Parnell
has issued cuts us off from tbe last hopes
to which we clung."
Relieve In Gladstone and Morley.
After declaring that tbe fealty of his col
leagues should have caused Parnell to re
frain from imputing to them the offense of
ermittiiig their integrity to be sapped by
Liberal wire-pullers," and protesting
against his actiouln vaguely and generally
appealing to the Irish people over the
heads of ibeir chosen representatives, the
manifesto says: "But the method in which,
ignoring the origin of the present calam
itous situation, Mr. Parnell endeavored to
fasten the responsibility for it upon Messrs.
Gladstone and Morley, compels us to dis
sociate ourselves in the strongest manner
from imputation which we believe to be
reckless and unjust."
Other Points or the Declaration.
The assault on Parnell by his ""public
and private" enemies is declared unjust,
but the former's description of the ilnd
atoneans as Knglish wolves howling for
his destruction is eqnally unjust. The
claim of INirnell that Gladstone's letter
involves the sacritice of the independence
of the Irish party is repudiated, and the
said letter is asserted to have been writ
ten with a view to Save home rule
from disaster. The ti. O. M. had
repeatedly placed himself on record to
the effect that any measure of borne rule,
to be effective, "must satisfy the
insn people," and by that statement had
bound himself to propose a full and ample
measure. Parnell's claim that Morley's
suggestion that some member of the Irish
party take office with Gladstone w a
blow at the independence of the party is
declared unfounded, the suggestion rather
have been made with the honest intention
of securing the best home rule bill possi
Most UItc Parnell the Bounce.
Paroell asks bis colleagues U sacrifice

driven to choose between our leader and
our cause. In that sad choice we cannot
hesitate. We lay these statements be
fore all our colleagues of the Irish
parliamentary party in the earnest
belief that a decisive vote on tbeir
part will deliver Ireland from the
fearful anxiety now overhanging the peo
ple, w e are convinced tuat a calm
but resolute course of action ou our part in
this cruel emergency will redound to the
advantaxe of our cause by furnishing con
clnsive testimony of the capacity of our

cisive vote will cause Puruvll to recon
sider iiis action.
THE MEETING AT CHICAGO.
Hardly I p to Expectation Synopsis of
Chicaoo, Dec. 1. Saturday the Irish
parliamentary delegation arrived here, and
were received at the station by a committee
The distinguished visitors were escorted to
their hotel by a laree crowd, which was
very enthusiastic. The event of the visit
was the gathering at night at the armory.
There were about 4.0OU men and women in
the Armory when MuyorCregier called the
gathering to order, while 1,000 more were
assembled in the ail joining Battery. Tbia
was hardly up to the expectations of the
promoters, who had provided :W,iJJ tickets
aud a long line of ImmiIIis and ticket sellers
on the ou tside. Thore was a noticeable ab
sence of tbe prominent public men, bish
ops, aud divines who had been invited to
eats on the platform. Mayor Cregier ten
dered to the visitors the freedom of the
city, nud incidentally provoked loud ap
plause by eulogizing Glads jue and ex
pressing the hope that his efforts would be
crowned with success.
Addressed by Dillon and Others.
John Dillon, who was received with
great enthusiasm, devoted his S "eli to a
resume (ft the home rule movei'.ot:t from its
inauguration by the Nation."' si : ill lsoy.
In concluding, be said that a-iUi united
action not more than a few intti or a
year at the most, could roll over their
Ueads without victory lieing within their
grasp. A voice in the gallery shouted out
at this juncture "And with I'arnell to
lead." This was the signal for uproarious
applause. Dillon, however, took no notice
of the interruption. Speeches were mode
by O'Brien. Sullivan, T. P. O'Couuor and
others, and a subscription taken up,
headed by Archbishop Feehan with 1UU.
Other subscriptions were oftnouand lesa,

AN ISSUE OF VERACITY.
That la What the Matter Beoomea In the
Loxbox, Dec. 1. The Parnell imbroglio
has Income in Kngland a question whether
Parnell or Gladstone is to lie lielieved.
Morley is ulso a party to the question. Sat
urday Gladstone published letter in
which lie denies Parnell's statements re
garding the"llawarden conference" all and
singulur. He antagonizes the Irish
leader in every particular, and
further says that the prono-
sitions, such us tbey really were, were only
tentative, and that it was distinctly un
derstood that they bouud nobody. These
statemi'iils. be asserts, be can establish by
written memoranda- jotted down at the
time of the conference. Not only, says
Gladstone, is Parnell's list of propositions
iiicormrt, but the proposal imputed to the
Eni'lisli statesman liear no resemblance
whatever to those really made.

That OrTer of Office.
"Mr. Parnell imputes to me a DroDosal
whose object was to absorb the Irish par
ty into rjiglish politics by means of office.
I made no proposal. I naturally wished to
ascertain if Mr. Parnell was still true to
his self-denying declaration of 1880. Hu
answer was what I fully anticipated. Ke-
garaing tne evicted tenants I observed to
Mr. Parnell that I foresaw difflcultie in
the way of legislation, but "I never said
that I or my colleagues bad formed any
conclusions against legislation. I never
hinted that it was impossible for an Irish
parliament to do anything in the matter."
Haa Parnell the Proof?
It is reported that unless Gladstone
withdraws the denials contained in his let

LOTS OF WORK FOR STATESMEN.
Much Important Knalaeaa for the Atten
tion of f ona-reeaniea.
Washington- Citv, Dec. l. The second
session of the Fifty-first congress, which
began at noon to-day, has much important
business to dispose of, aud but a few days
over three months in which to do so, with
the holidays to be deducted. There are the
necessary appropriation bills, without
which the business of tbe government
would be suspended at least in part, and
the reapportionment bill, which bas as yet
received consideration in neither house,
but which the Republicans in both houses
have said must be passed at this session.
Then there are many measures of impor
tance on the calendar which have passed
one house, and are therefore half, through
the legislative journey.
Business for the Senate to Tackle.
The most important of these is tbe fed
eral election bill which passed the honse
at the first session, and which was resisted
in the senate by the Democrats
last session so firmly that ' it
was necessary for the Republicans
to agree to a postponement of its consider
ation. There are also on the calendar of
the senate a national bankruptcy bill;
the bill to transfer tbe revenue marine
service from the treasury to the navy de
partment wnicn waa debated at some
length during the first session, and the
Conger lard bill. These measures have
passed the bouse.
The Federal Election Bill.
On tbe house calendar are the subsidy
and shipping bills, which have passed the
senate. Tbe Republicans are pledged to
the passage of the federal election bill, but
it is a question in the minds of some
whether it is possible to pass ! agaiust the
obstructive tactics of the De wicrats. The
Republican senators will proot.bly hold a
caucus during the week to determine what
is to be done. There bas as yet been no
consultation of the leaders on this point.

One of the Boats Capsizes.
The struggle was bard and as the men
were shifting positions for relief at the
oars the boat was overturned. Four men

death struggle among tbe men, one waa
lost aud tbe other two left on the ice.
Seven men passed all of Saturday night
upon tue tossing cakes of ice, expecting
aeatn every moment. Their cries reached
their comrades on the shore, but there was

Rescued at Daybreak..
At daybreak a boat was procured and
volunteers manned it to go to tbe rescue.
The seven men on four ice cakes bad drift
ed widely apart, but were rescued one by
one until all were saved except John and
Arthur Crotto, brothers, who were to
gether. Just as the boat drew -within
hailing distance John Crotto, unable to
longer hold on, released bis grip and disap
peared in the water, and the brother was
rescued in a dying condition. The victims
were: Frank Fournier, John Crotto, Ar

CHICAGO, Dec. 1. Telegrams from Pine
Ridge are to the effect that tbe Sioux from
the old Spotted Tail agency are moving
toward the Bad Lands, sweeping all tlte
ranches of such property as they want en

Buffalo Bill and Batting Ball.
A report from Standing Rock says that
Buffalo Bill started Saturday for Sitting
Bull's camp with orders to arrest the old
reprobate, but while on the way a courier
overtook him with other orders counter
manding the first.
With all these disquieting reports there
are none of any killing of whites by the al

from tlie southern part of the public land

cold i o .til comers until a wealthy cattle:
man tamed Royson made known bis in

His s ii was favored by the girl's father
and r Ki,her, but the suitor to whom the
belle showed preference was a young and
hand oiue herder, who bad nothing but
bis monthly wages on which to live.
Where They Made a Mistake.
Tht persistent wooing of tbe cattleman
and t te coercion of the parents caused the
lovers much unhappiaVsa. After holding
out a ra'inst the demands of her parents un
til lif.s was made a burden to her, Vary at
last c mseuted to marry Royson. All the
prepa rations for a big wedding were com

gat lit re-1 for miles around. Just before
the b. xi.-set for the ceremony John Hol

large horse and lending another. The
prospective husband and tbe parents of the
girl n i bim with frowns, but he was al
lowed to come into the house to participate
in tl festivities.

All went well for a time, but it was soon
notictd hat the girl and Holland had dis-apieare-l
and a search revealed tbe fact
that lot tlie horses were also gone. A
hot cl as was begnn.and a large party soon
got oil t'ie trail of the fleeiug couple. The
girl hd dressed herself in a suit of men's
clotht s, find was riding astride beside her
lover, both being heavily armed. A run
ning ligut ensued on the plains, in which
old m in Carson and one of his herders were
shot slightly, and Royson bad his horse
killed under him. This proceeding drove
back tbe pursuers, aud the couple rode
into I :urValo, where they were made hus

St.- Ijitis, Dec. 1. Miss Carry M. Kel

An Incident That Is Enriching a
HARD LABOR FOB AN ARACHHTDA.
Th I-Htle Engineer Worka a Week aw a
Prohleni Involving- Food for Hla Family
- The Kerne of Operation Crnwded, and
' Beta fir lug Freely ma the Spider ta Win
He Seems to Have Read the Presi
dent a Proclamation, and Rreta Thanks
Syruti'se, X. V., Dee. L Popular Inter
est hat centered during the past few dsys
in tbe operations of a -spider of the Tegen
aria Melk-inalis species over the bar ins
saloon in this' city. Thousands of people
bave gone into tbe place to watch the spi
der accomplish an engineering feat which
displays in the insect almost human capac
ity, and the saloonkeeper is becoming rich
by the patronage of his visitors during tbe
star engagement of t he spider. The insert
set out on Tuesday to lift s kernel of
popped com from s dish on the bar to its
web attached to an electric light wire on
Starting Hla Machinery.
It descended on the kernel by spinning s
cable of the necessary length. It was evi
dent, however, that when the spider hoist
ed the load clear from tbe dish its uneven
weight would cause it to lop to ona side so
suddenly as to probably snap the cable. To
prevent such an accident the spider at
tached two smaller sized cables to project
ing parts of the kernel aud made them fast
to the main cable about five inches above
the burden. All being ready, tlie spider
returned to its headquarters and started
its windlass, and the kernel began to rise.
That was tbe situation when the peopple
in the saloon first discovered what was go
Applause for the Little Engineer.
After getting tlie corn up about s foot
work was suspended for s time. The
spider had begun to mistrust some of the
machinery. It made an investigation, re
paired a slight break or two aliove in tbe
gnys, and then slid down to the corn.
Kvery thing there was all solid, but the
little engineer thonght prudence a mark of
wisdom, and doubled up the cable where
tbe main weight was seen to bang. This
was 11 o'clock on Tuesday night, and with
a more cheerful air of confidence than it
had before displayed" tbe spider ran lightly
aloft to the hoisting apiMiratus. The ma
chine started and so did the corn, and so
did the eager throng of spectators, who
hurst into applause.
Stock at Thlrty-HIc Inches.
Inside of a minute the corn was raised at
least four inches. Then there waa another
delay, which was only short. At midnight
on Tuesday the corn had risen two feet.
At daylight on Wednesday it was up thirty-six
inches. There it seemed to stick.
All day Wednesday only slight progress
waa made, though tbe spider never re
laxed its effort. Sometimes tbe burden
even receded. Then there was a aeries of
jerks, but the machinery overhead seemed
to slip s cog, snd no headway was made.
Late on Wednesday night operations were
temporarily suspended, and the spider re
tired. Backing the Spider tn Win.
Thanksgiving Day was spent in tbe com
pletion of further plans or in rest, aud Sat
day morning the work rested where it had
stopped Wednesday night. Tl spider
went up and down the main cable lime
and time again, apparent Iy mending it,
and finally, toward evening, began to draw
up, but with only partial success, though
it was cheered on by a crowd of spectators.
The sporting fraternity are backing the
spider to win ten to one.
REGARDING THE CIVIL SERVICE.
Th ComailMlosi Finds I .ark of Refi
In Sonas Branches.
Washis jtox City, Dec 1. The annual
report of the civil service commissi on
states that the classified service has grown
so as to include atpreseut more than 3D,
000 people. Considerable space is devoted
to the question of removals in the classi
fied service for partisan reasons, ami fig
ores are given which show that during the
first year of Cleveland's administration be
tween 7 and 8 per cent, of tbe appoint
ments made during the previous adminis
tration were removed or resigned, and of
those who came into the departmental
service through civil service examinations
during Cleveland's administration s little
more than 8 per cent, were removed or re
signed during the first year of tbe present
Not Worth Talking AsMt
This difference of barely half of 1 per
cent, in removals, the commission says
is so small that it is not worth regarding,
and certainly is not necessarily due to par
tisanship. The fact also that only 8 per
cent, of tbe appointees of one administra
tion are removed the first year of the suc
ceeding one, makes it safe to ssy that
political considerations have nracficnllT
disappeared as factors in tbe removals in
the classified service in this city. The
commission conclude, therefore, that
the law as a whole has been faithfully and
honestly observed, in spite of tbe strain of
two cnanges oi aumiuist ration.
Where It la a Matter sf Poll', lea.
In tbe customs and postal services tbe
result is less satisfactory. "Comparing,
the report says, "the percentage of re
movals in tits cliMiriwi M-ei in .,.k
postoflice with the number of removals
lunue in i ne nnciassinea ana ex
cepted places, the difference ia aa
tonishing. In one case tbe percentage
ranges from S to 'JS; in the other from M to
over 90? and the averaim is almnt utm
times as great among those employes not
pruieticu oj me taw. jt won I a ne ainscult
to advance tnr argument w l.tr, -a-.-.. I I
show more conclusively tbe good effect
mat tue law nas in preventing jn tbe clas
sified service clean sweeps and removals for
An Irresistible Conclusion.
"The interest uf th ir-iiihlm mr-Im A
mand chanoes to the extent of onlv lo nr
15 per cent, among those who bave en-
tereu inorongn examinations, whereas 50
Or 90 tier cent, of those lllm ha n,i hna
entered are removed during the year suc-
ceeuing any cnauge ot administration. Tbe
conclusion is irresistible, either that where

The commission further says that for

utmost nositivetiMH t Imt in ti,.l,li, - .......

In conclusion tbe commission makes an
argument in favor of tbe reform, which it
clai ma betters the tone of public life and
produces better governmental administra
tion. The system is an "American" sys
tem, snd "it is noteworthy that the offices
snd bureaus which show the best results
in giving an honest, efficient and econom
ical administration are precisely those in
which tbe civil service law baa been most
faithfully oliserved. Choosing almost
