No Reconciliation of the Irish
O'BRIEN GIVES UP IN DESPAIR.

Londhn Feb. 12. Tlie rupture of neijo
tiutions tending to a settlement of the ilif
forenees betweeu the Irish factions is due
to several causes. G'.wlstone would not con
sent to a home rule plan that would leave
the Irish pari: iment independent of a veto
hy the imperial parliament. He would
n t consent to give any pledge whatever
in writiu-, as he looked upon the proposi
tion as insulting. Ou the other hand, the
McCarthy faction could no1", hold its own
laenshep to nny terms of settlement, Tim
othy llealy declaring that he would be
content with nothing short of the final
extinguishing of Paruell.
Thinks Home Rule a Sure Thin;'.
I'arnell goes right on, apparently not
guiding ins conduct by any thought i t set
tiement, and outspoken as ever in bin con
U'uipt of the English Liberal leaders, who,
he avers, are obliged to grant borne rule
or see the lories remain in power. Glad
stone's remark, to the Australian labor
delegate, Fitzgerald, that after the next
election labor would be the quest ion of the
day, is construed as meaning th.it, in
Gladstone's opinion, home rule is certain
to triumph and be out of the way.
lls Takeu His Stand to Slav.
rarnell, in an interview, says tlat he
will not retetk- from his position, which
n.is neen consistent throughout, and he
win not submit to the die; ation
of Gladstone and of the priests.
Ho adds that he does not tlieve
that a general election will take plaie un
til parliament has completed its legul ex
istencc two years hence.
O'BRIEN GIVES IT UP.
The Reconciliation Reaten at the 1-ast
Moment !y ''Kickers."
William O'Brien has issued a long state
ment on the Irish parliamentary paity sit
uation, lie says: "The experience of the
past five weeks, gatherod in personal in
terviews, l.'tters and newspapers, con-
i.i iMmv riimiciiou inai oniy a nearty
reunion can save the Irish cans-'. It is my
duty to sol-mnly declare that no diilieulty
existed which a little more sacri ice ol
personal feelings on both sides ni.Lt not
have surmounted. No useful purpose can
be served by publishing the details of ne
gotiations, si ml I have, therefore, redded
to regard them as confidential, but 1 think
that none of the parties concerned will
seriously question that on the main points
a substantial agreement was established.
Milpwreeked by Word.
"I cannot too strongly express wit l what
feelings we found the settlement ship
wrecked at the last moment by mere con
tests of words, which offer a shockingly
inadequate excuse for committing the
country to a struggle involving appalling
consequences. Hampered at every step by
a mischief-making section f the
press and also by responsible
persons who seemed to resent any attempt
to give a less barbarous character to the
conflict, and reconciliation impeded by
persons fatally deceived as to our own and
our opjKinents' strength, the irrei-oncila-bles
of all sections have carried tl e day.
Dillon and myself cannot longer stand
their denlorable work."
Dillon and Parnell Write.
Dillon also makes a statement admit
ting that he had been largely influenced
to mediate by the action of ParuePs most
prominent opponents. He compliments
Parnell on his services to the Irisii cause,
but says that he is unable to nccept his
Parnell has written to O'Urien, saying:
"The last information that Gill conveyed
to me in regard to our negotiations being
of a final character, I conclude tint noth
ing is left to he done on my part but to
bring our endeavors to a close. I hope the
inevitable conflict forced upon mv coun
try will be conducted without bir.terness
No C ourse Kxcept Withdrawal.
"I regret that no course is left to me
but to withdraw from the negotiations.
The seal of confidence which env rous ua
prevents my inviting the public judgment,
but if that seal should ever le removed I
am confident that it would lie h ?ld that
I had done everything consist
ent with the national interests
to promote peace and reunion.
Do not ft-nr that the cause is lost, al
though these negotiations bav.s failed.
They have not yet been entirely unsuccess
ful in advancing it. On this you may
congratulate yourself. I am sure that the
country will believe that William
O'Brien has acted throughout as a true pa
triot." Dillon says that lie and O'Brien will
come to Kngliind to surreuder, and begin
their six months' imprisonment.
PROSPECTORS GOING WILD.
Rich Strike of I'ay Pirt at a sn-iiitl Col-

is the scene of much excitement;, and to
onlookers it is certainly a most amusing
spectacle. Prospectors with pick s, stake?,
shovels and pans are running wildly about,
and the hill is already staked out. and hun
dreds of dollars have been p iid for a
hole in the ground. Samples of the dust
have lieen sent into town and riost care
fully scrutinized by experts.
Ten Thousand to the To i.
Those competent to judge say the dirt
taken .from the blastings is "great," and
the sand will yield $10,000 to the ton.
Miners have expressed their opinions en
enthusiastically and say it is I y far the
richest pan they have ever seen. The dust
brought in only a double handful con
tains as much copper and gold ai is gener
ally seen iu twenty pounds of sand.

, The Senatorial Situation.
The senatorial contest has reached a point
where ail parties concerned admit that an
important crisis is imminent.- Just what
it is and how it will result is yet a mattei
of speculation. The Republicans gave the
F. M. II. A. men a chauce to vote for an
other man yesterday. Contrary to the al
leged determination of the Republicans to
stick to Oglesby, they dropped him and
put v.p C. J. Lindley, who is the president
of the F. M. B. A. This created a sensa
tion, and the excitement was intense
when the first F. M. B. A. niau on the roll
was called in joint session Cockrell to
hear how he would vote under the circum
stances. But the Democrats cheered and
the Republicans sighed when he responded
"John P. Stelle." Only one ballot was
-r - w-j no u-uaat auu
then a recess was taken to 3 p. m., when
several nauots were taken with the usual
Negotiating for a Man.
The Republican steering committee had
another conference with the F. M. B. A.
men. They offered a number of names,
among them Representative David Hun
ter; Lafayette Funk; David Ward Wood,
editor of The Western Rural, of Chicago;
Gen. Charles II Howard, editor of Tbe
Farm, Field and StockruRn, of Chicago,
and others, but the grangers said it was
useless to talk, as they could not accept
any one presetted. They made a counter
proposition that the Republicans vote for
Streeter, Moore or Stelle, but the Repub
licans, while not positively declining, said
they had not made up their minds. Ly
man Trumbull has written to the Demo
crats calling on them to stand by Gen.
Legislation in Michigan.
Lansing, Mich., Feb. .-Representative
Botsford has introduced a bill in the
house providing that persons engaged in
the commission business must secure a
license and give bonds for the faithful

requires that butterine, oleomargarine,
and like subtances must be colored pink.
A bill introduced by Senator Basone, one
of the three Independent farmer senators,
providing for a uniform system of text
books, stirred up a hot fight in the senate.
The bill provides that after .Tune, is:r,
uniform text books shall be used in au
the schools of the state, and that only the
English language shall be tnuslit, nc
matter whether the school is graded or un
graded. Consideration was postponed.
The Wisconsin Legislature.
Madison, Wis., Feb. 12. A resolution
was offered in the senate yesterday asking
State Treasurer Hunncr to state whethei
he has received interest on public fund?
and for full information as to the disposal
of the funds and their amount, etc. A

convicts who commit murder shall be
hanged. In the bouse a measure to

are lawyers to become assignees, conrt
commissioners, etc, A bill was introduced
providing that in libel cases malice shall
not be presumed unless retraction Or apol
ogy is refused.
More Railway Regulation.
Toi'KKA, Kan., Feb. 12. The house com
mittee on railroads introduced a bill in
the house yesterday reducing the passen
ger rates on Kansas railroads to SVj cents
per mile. The bill also includes a pro
vision that the board of railroad commis
sioners be elected by the people, and an
other provision making it unlawful for
railroads to issue free passes.

Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 12. The house con

olution. The Texas I-'e-er Iltrirt.
Washington City. Feb. 12. The secre
tary of agriculture has just issued hi?
Texas fever regulations, in accordance

A Charge of Skulld ucgery.
Washington Citt, Feb. 12. During
the debate in the bouse yesterday Fitch
gave notice that if the shipping bill
passed - committee would be appointed in
the next congress to inquire into the man
ner in which its passage bad been secured.
The kind of influence and th:; methods
which had been uspd in the advocacy of
the bill (including as base and as lavish
a use of other means as abuse) would
never succeed in getting many of the
members to vote for it.
