London, Xov. 28.— Paraoll's manifesto to
the Irish people, which was issued to-night,
is. very lengthy. lie begins by saying:
" Tiie integrity and independence of one
section of the- Irish Parliamentary party
.-. having • been apparently sapped and de
stroyed by the wire-pullers of the Liberal
party, it has become necessary for me, as
the leader if tile Irish party, take counsel
with you, and, having given you the knowl
edge which is in my po>SL'ssion, ask your
judgment' upon a matter which now solely
devolves upon you to decide. The let
ter from Gladstone to Morley, writ
ten for the purposo of influencing
the decision of the Irish party in
the choice ol leader, and claiming for the
-Liberals and their leaders the right to vote
upon this choice, is tlie immediate cause of
this address, the purpose of which is to re
mind you and your parliamentary repre
sentatives th.it Ireland considers the inde-
pendence of her party the only safeguard
within tlie constitution and above and be
yond all other consideiatious whatever.
The . threat in that letter, repeated so in-
solt-ntly on so many platforms and in nunicr-
British newspapers, compels me to out
c you information which, until now,
has been solely in my possession, and which
v<"ti en.ible you to understand the measure
of the lots with which you are threatened
unless you consent to throw me to the En
glMi wolves now howling for my destruc
Parnell then tells how at Hawarden last
November he received from Gladstone the
details of what that gentleman and his col
leagues proposed with regard to home rule,
hi the event of the next general election
favoring Uie Liberal party. Upon the sub
ject of tlie Irish members, in the Imperial
Parliament, Gladstone told hrui tnat in or
der to conciliate English public opinion, it
would be necessary to reduce the Irish rep
resentation from lho to 32 vi on the settle
ment of the land auestisn. Gladstone inti
mated that while he would renew his
at:empt to settle the matter by imperial
legislrfthinon the lines of the Land Purchase
Bill of 18NJ. he would not undertake to put
uny pressnrc upon his own side; in other
words, that Irish legislation was not to be
given tlie power of settling the agrarian
With regard to the control of the Irish
constabulary, it was by Gladstone, in
view of tin 1 necessity of conciliating fucli-h
public cpu.i n, that it would be necessary,
to leave tiiis fc ice und the appointment ot
its officers under the control of imperial
authority for an indefinite period, while the
funds for its maintenance would be couipu!
eor.ily provided cut of the Irish revenue. A
period of ten cr twelve ye;irs was suggested
as the limit of tirr.e doring which the ap
poiniment of Judges and resident Magis
tratts should be retained in the bauds ol the
l'as-ing to an expression of his opinion oil
tlie;e points, which, Parnell says, repre-eut
his views then and now, lie says, with regaid
to the retention of Irish members, he hold*
that the concession of full powers to an
Irish Legislature equivalent to those of a
■state of the American Union, the number
and position of the members so retained
would become a question of imperial con
cern, ami not of pressing or immediate Im
portance for the interests of Ireland; but
. witn ih.it tinpsrtant and a!l-enero39ing sub
jects of agrarian reform, constabulary and
. judiciary appointments, lelt ' either under
• imperial control or totally unprovided fur, it
wuuid lie the height of madness for any
Irish leader to imitate Gratiau's example
and consent to disband an army which has
•. cleared the way to victory.

On the introduction of the Land Purchase

ment of toe last session, Morley conferred
lib him, having regard to the avowed ab
itnceol any policy on the part of tlit- Lib

A LIMITED QUESTION.
"In conclusion ilorley directed my atten
tion to the .plan of campaign in the estates.
lie said it would be Impossible for the Lib
eral party when it attained power to do any
thing for these evicted tenants by direct
action, and it would also be impossible for
the Irish Parliament under the powers con
ferred upon it to do anything for them, and,
Miming up bis hinds with a gesture of
despair, he exclaimed, ' Having been in
.Tipperary I do not know what to propose.'
"1 told him this question was a limited one.
Funds would be available from America
and elsewhere for the support of those ten
ants as long as necessary, and this difficulty
should not be allowed to interfere with the
general interests of tin' country."
Parnell says he alludes to this matter
only because within the last few days a
Strong argument for his expulsion has been
used that unless the Liberals come into
power at the next election the plan of cam
paign will suffer. He has shown that the
Liberals proposed to do nothing for
them by direct action, and is entitled to
a-k "that the existence of these tenants,
whom he lias supported in every way in the
past and will continue to support, shall not
constitute a reason for his expulsion from .
Parnell says that durinz the ten yeirs of
Independence "1 the Irish Parliamentary
patty, it ha , because of its independence,

sity of granting home rule to Ireland. He
believes the party will obtain home rule
provided it remains independent of any
In conclusion, ho says: "I do not believe
any action of the Irish people in supporting
me will endanger the home rule cattle or
postpone the establishment of an Irish
Parliament. But even if the danger were
to be realized, 1 believe the Irish people
throughout the world would agree with me
that a postponement would b? preferable to
a compromise of our national rights by the
. acceptance of a measure which would not
realize the aspirations of our race."
r.\i:.M:Li.'s OrrONENTS. *
At 2 o'clock this afternoon no reply jiati
been received from Dillon and O'Brien.
The strained relations between the two sec
tions of the Parnellite party are becoming
more marked. Pnrnell's supporters com
plain that liis opponents are using unusual
methods against him. They believe that the
American delegates have teen misled, and
have cabled a warning to them not to accept
the first version of the meeting as correct,
and describing the pioceedinss from their
own point if view.
The 'opponents of Parnoll take it for
granted that O'Connor, Sullivan and Har
rington will foil the lead of O'Brien, anil
Dillon, and unite in an attempt to depose
Parnell. They think Gill's support of this
movement Is doubtful. They consider Par
nell has been totally misinformed regarding
the views of the Irish people generally, and
they believe his manifesto will decrease Ins
hold it; (in the country and further damage
his position. His opponents are preparing
a counter manifesto.
IXTKIGUKS on TOOT.
Parnell's supporters assert that intrigues
are on foot in the lobby of the House of
Commons io draw away Dillon, O'Brien
and other delegates from the support of
Parnell. The auti-Parnell members of the
Nationalist party are more hopeful, and
a>sert th.it private telegrams from Ireland
show that the priests ami the mats of the
people support them. They claim that if.
Dillon and O'Brien throw in their lot with
the Sexton and Healy forces against Par
nell, as they are expected to do, the tide of
opinion against Parnell will be irresistiole.
The Pi.ess Association says it is author
ized tn state that the announcement that the
Irish Catholic hierarchy contemplated tak
ing action against Parnell is premature, and
that the statements in the announcement
are entirely speculative.
. A COUNTER MANIFESTO.
It is reported that Gladstone will issue a
Gladstone held a conference with Earl
Spencer and Arnold Morley to-day.
' Lord Randolph Churchill is hurrying to
London from Italy, believing the pre>ent
crisis in political affairs will hasten the dis
solution of Parliament.
AN IMPORTANT MEETING.
A section of the Parnellitcs met at the
Commons to-night and resolved to take
action to combat the influence of the mani
festo, and resenting an appearance of a
breach of faith. The meeting adjourned to
get i he opinion of the delegates in America.
It is staled that even if Parnell is out
voted at Monday's meeting he will stick to
his seat for Cork and haras.i the Liberals us
much as possible.
A ■ canvass has been conducted by mem
bers of the Irish Parliamentary party, who
are opposed to Parnell's retention of the
leadership, with ascertaining bow the vote
is likely to go at Monday's meeting. The
result was the securing of fifty-three
members to vote against Parnell.
Among them are: Condon, Deasy, ."Turn
Dillon. Esmond?, Finueane, Timothy Har
rington, Timothy Healy, Maurice Ileuly,
Justin McCarthy, J. F. O'Brien, Patrick
O'Urien, J. O'Brien, Koche, Sexton, Shee-
Inn, Sheehy, Tanner and Webb. The nntl-
Parnellites al*o rely upon the votes of Will
iam O'Brien, T. P. O'Connor, Gill and T. 1).
The adherents of Parnell who announce
their intention to stick to their old leader
number twenty-three, namely: Blanc,
Byrne, Henry Campbell, Cod « ay. W. J.
Corbet, J. G. Filzgerald, Edwcrd Harring
ton, Harden. J. L\ Kennv, W. A. Macdon

Nolan. Joseph Nolan, John O'Connor,
O'Kcily, PihkcriMi, P. J. Power, Kichard
Power, John Ktjdmoud, William Krdmonu
All the rapers comment at great length on
the matter. The Post says: A bomii has
be.n exploded in nneer, and Parnell tains
state's evidence against ihn conspirators to
-aye his own political life. If manifest)
has rendered the prospects lor home rule
worse than at any time since 1838.
The Daily News says: This is the last
fatal disservice which obliterates many ii
nut all of his incomparable service!.
The News appeals to the Irish clergy and
people not to allow Parnull to drawdown
the home-rule cause in his own full by a
belief in the serious misapprehensions of
their English friends.
The Chronicle says Parnell's most power
ful blow is a revelation of the abject par
alysis of the Gludstoman party over the laud
question and Morley's confession of their
Inability to assist sufferers from the plan of
campaign. The manifesto shows that Par

man can venture to hold confidential rela
The Standard says the manifesto is highly
damaging io the credit of G'.a'lstoue'and
Morli-y as straightforward statesmen. So
English politician will ever trust Parnell
again, but lie has cliou-n the right line to
win hack the regard of Irishmen.
Tim Times says the manifesto shivers
forever the supposition that Pauiell can
ever again be treated as a trustworthy
fi tend or honorable foe. - The Times thinks,
however, that it will probably affect its
purpose in Ireland, and refers to the severity
of the blow inflicted on Gladstone's im

themselves in person. The main point, the
Journal contends, is that Ireland should
preserve . the efficiency of hiT own party.
The . English Radicals, it says, must take
care of themselves and Ireland must
mind her own business. It - beseeches
Gladstone to ignore the ravings of
canters and the hypocrisy of recalcitrants,
who can do nothing without him. When
he wins, it say;, they will again crawl to
his - foot-stool. Continuing, the Journal
says Davitt should remember that when
Parliament howled for his punishment Far
nell stood ud for him and faced the storm.
When the nine days' wonder is over he will
be surprised it ever entered an Irishman's
bead to depose his captain at the most criti
cal hour of the political combat.

There is a general opinion among those
who have studied the situation, however,
that the decision of the conference will be

Washington, Nov. 28— The rostmaster-
General in his annual retort shows that dur

postal-card coutiacts. The cards, though
inferior at first, were quickly brought up to
the required standard. Four hundred thou

been extended over almost 2,000,000 rciks of
railway, steamboat and stage lines. The
gross revenue was nearly $0.0C0,U)0 larger
than ever before. Almost 6000 new post
offices, more than any one year before, have
been established upon the petitions of

New Yokk, Nov. 28.— Tho Commercial
Bulletin's Washington special says: Free
coinage advocates are determined to win if
they can. It would not be surprising to see
Senator Stewart or Senator Teller offer a
provision for free coinage as an amendment
to one of tho regular appropriation bills. It
would lead to a sharp contest and possibly
an extra session, but the attempt is more
than likely to be made. The Secretary -of
the Treasury and Comptroller of the Cur-^
rency both admit in their reports the strength*
of the free-colnngo movement. Tho Secre
tary admits it by silence, lest his protest
against it would embarrass the administra
tion aud party. The Comptroller admits it
by interpreting the silver legislation of Con
gress as a declination tiiat the national banks
will not be called upon to furuisli a circu
lating medium. II free coinage is voted it
will doubtless be with some provision for

The Blood-horse Association has been
specially fortunate in having such fine
■weather for the present fall meetine, and as ■
there is almost a certainty that to-day ■ will
be as pleasant as if y of the preceding threo
days the attendance for the closing dny
should be very, large. The track will be in .
excellent order and should be very fast. .;
* To-day's programme will consist of five
events, the run-off between Kica and Ida
Gltnn-for the five-furlong heat race of last
Tuesday, a handicap for two-} ear-olds,
purse .of £400, fit tccu-sixteenths of a mile;
the Vestal stakes, one' iicd a quarter miles; ,'
the Holiday handicap, one and a quarter
miles, and an owners' handicap, one. mile.
When the judges last .Tuesday deeMed to :
postpone the run-off of the heat race be- ;
tween Rico and Ida Glenn, the owner of the
mare objected strongly; The representa
tions made in Kilo's behalf, however, were
considered of more weight and carried the
day. Many horsemen think that the judges •
In deferring the run-ell to to-day instead of
to yesterday transgressed the rule of the/-
Blood-horse Association, which lays down I
that In case of a postponement the race - '
shall be concluded the -following day unless •
such day .fails on Sunday. It is possible ■
that cV- ■.!_■ to the extra day's extension on ,'
the date the judges may decide to declare •'.
all bets pff. Had the run-off been had on ••
Tuesday the uvare would to all probability
have won as Kico is reported as having bled .-"■
freely at the Dose after the second heat. .. . -. ■
According to a dispatch from Sacramento, ••'
the well-known running sire, Norfolk, died - :
tiiero.inst Tuesday and was buried at tlm
Kancllo del Kio. Norfolk was the property -
of Theodore Winters, who brought him tn.v
this Coast many years ago to compete In tho
.long distance heat races then so popular..

horse and set the' three-mile record at '■'
5:27}4 when 4 years Sid with 100 pounds un '■'

until Drake Carter reduced it in 1884 to 5:24,
his greatest success was in tho stiiU. An .

gained a great reputation and was a leading ■

Joseph llijinpsop has been much dlsap-.
pointed in securing the laud required for'
his new race-track project in the Ocean '-•
House district. Prices were ulae.d so high:,
on the ground; that he. wanted that they
became *iitterly -prohibitive. : One lot of 150.'
--acres, all sandhills, was held at 83000 ran
aero, which alono- would make an initial :'.
outlay of $450,000. - . Add to this the probable •■
expense of laying out the track and erecting ■'■'
the necessary buildings and some $700,000 : V
would he needed before' a race could be hail j '
over the track. i Tliomp-on, it is said, will •" '
try to secure another location on the penin- -it
sula, and, if ae»Jn unsuccessful, will con- ."i
sider the advisability of building the track '.'
