IRISH NATIONALISTS SPLIT.
Instln McCarthy Elected Leader cf the
Beecders— Parnell Confident of Win-
London, Dec. B.—Matters in the Irish
Nationalist tronblee came to a head
to-day. After speeches from Messrs.
Barry, bexton, Healy, and others de
nouncing Parnell, Mr. Abraham rose
and moved a resolution that Parnell
should at once vacate the chairmanship
of the Irish Nationalist party. Mr. Par
nell stolidly refused to pnt a question on
Mr. Abraham’s resolution, whereupon
Justin McCarthy and forty-four other
members of the conference, arose from
their seats and slowly filed out of the
Justin McCarthy Elected.
At their meeting the eeceders, by a
unanimons vote, elected Justin McCar
thy chairman. When Mr. McCarthy
had assumed the chair the meeting pro
ceeded to consider the following reso
“We, members of the Irish parliamen
tary party, solemnly renew our adhe
sion to the principle, in devotion to
which we have never wavered, that the
Irish party is and always must remain
independent of all other parties. Fa
ther, we declare that we will never en
tertain any proposal for a settlement of
the home rule question. except such aa
satisfies the aspirations of the Irish
party and Irish people."
The resolution, which was proposed
by Timothy Healey and seconded by
Mr. Sexton, was unanimously adopted.
Pameltite* Anxiona for a Tml.
The Parnellites, it is understood, are
axious to force an appeal to the country
as soon as possible, and claim that their
antagonists are afraid to submit the is
eue of their conduct to the people. It is
stated on the alleged authority of Timo
thy Healy that the party headed by Jus
tin McCarthy will continue to keep
their seats, without. any resigna
tions, upholding the causa of
home rale and waiting for' time
to bring about a sober and
deliberate decision in the now excited
constituencies. Mr. Barry said that
Mr. Parnell’s cause would lose instead
of gain with the progress of time, and
that the next general elections would
see him deader than Isaac Butt. Par
nell, on the other hand, is said to fee!
entirely confident, and to be already se
lecting successors for those who have
deserted him. He is in ample funds, as
since the division in the party several
American organizations have forwarded
money directly to him instead of to the
treasurers formerly appointed.

P»«*ll Retain* the AdT*nt*|« of Posi-
tion In the Irish Imbroglio.
London, Deo. B.— The concensus ot
ooinioa, as gathered from the morning
papers is that Mr. Parnell has by his
strategy woe the day so far ns retaining
the immediate confidence and support
of the Irish people is concerned. What
the sober second thought of the people
will be depends on the degree of ability
with which the eeceders can lay their
case before the country. They have the
best speakers* and more firet-rate men
than the “regulars" have, but Mr. Par
nell is a host in himself and has Hie
Irish press and the purs* with him.
The struggle for supremacy will be as
interesting aa it is undoubtedly impor
tant Many of Parnell’s Opponents
think the eeceders should at once resign
and seek re-clection. It is reported that
some of Parnell’s present adherents are
likely to go over to Mr. Mcarthy's side

Washington, Dec. 9.—The possibility
of the defeat of ths elec£on bill in the
senate on a direct vote on its passage
was discussed in Republican circles and
one Republican senator went so far as
to say that it would be policy for the
Democratic senators to permit, the de
bate to come to a speedy close and a
vote to be taken before the Christmas
holidays. If the bill was not a party
measure there would be no doubt of its
fate; but the action of the Republican
caucus in formally declaring tnat ths
bill shall pass will bind at least some of
those who do not favor the bill to vote
for it when it is placed on its passage.
Whether this will hold enough doubtful
Republican votes to carry the measure
through is a debatable proposition. It
is admitted by Republican senators that
several Republican votes will be cast
