His Retirement 3lost Urgently" Desired. Many Members of the Irish Party Now Bequest It. Pressure Brought to Bear Upon Him. from All Sides—lreland's Cause iv" : ' Jeopardy. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Nov. 26.—Today's events have not relieved the tension mi the Parnellite camp, but rather accentuated the complicatioua of the situation. '1 he conferencea held today prove that a great divergence of opinion but ahow that unless a Vote of no confidence ia passed by hia followera, Parnelf will not abdicate. The. meeting this if ter noon adjourned after three hoiij-s of speeeh-making,-:iji_ order lo obtain the viewa of the absdnt juejfifbers of the party. :■***. When the party reassembles Monday, it is probable Parnell will again be urged to retire by one section of his support ers, but if a vote ia taken, it ia expected a large majority will be on hia side. The Welsh members of the party to day resolved that the retention of Par nell would cause the postponement of home rule beyond the span of Glad stone's public life, and they are more than ever determined to rally to the support of Gladstone. Gladstone had frequent conferences with his colleagues this forenoon, f Gladstone and Morley held a confer- j ence this afternoon to consider thefcitu ation. Truth, Henry Labouchere'a piper, abandons Parnell. It is a foregone conclusion thaf the lobby meetings must result in Parrrell'a resignation. I ■ .'' < w > Many Nationalist foiernbera of parlia ment are greatly annoyed at Parnell's ungracious treatment of Gladstone. A rumor ia current tonight that Par nell intends to isaue a manifesto to the Irish people, explaining and justifying his position. Reaction Sets In. Thirty-eight Parnellites last night signed a request asking Parnell to convene a meeting of the Nationaiist members of the house today. Parnell declined,despite the fact that the rules of the party prpvide that a meeting shall he called when twenty members sign a re quest. Several Parnellites complain that they were not informed of all the facts in connection with Gladstone's at titude towards Parnell, as set forth iv his letter to Morley, when they voted yesterday to retain Parnell in the lead ership. A stormy scene occurred at the meet ing "of the Parnellites last evening, after the letter from Gladstone to Mr. Morley had been made public. The action of McCarthy in not making known the contents of Gladstone's letter in the morning at the meeting, as re quested, was serioualy criticized. The majority of the Nationalists present last night, said they believed previous to the meeting in the morning, that Parnell, after re-election, would not take an active part in politics for a few months. They now believed if Gladstone's letter had been read at the morning meeting, the motion to reinstate Parnell in the leadership, would have been different. Yesterday's Meetings. Although last night Parnell refused to call a meeting of the Irish members of the commons, a meeting was held to day. Parnell was present and presided. Silence was observed as he entered the room. After calling the meeting to or der, Parnell explained that he had re considered his determination and called the meeting. The meeting lasted half an hour. There was a great divergence of opinion manifested throughout the discussion. No definite action was agreed upon, and the meeting adjourned until this evening. It was learned after the adjournment of the meeting that a strong feeling in favor of Parnell's resignation of the leadership was manifested, but the mi nority vehemently opposed it. Parnell's speech at the opening of the meeting gave no idea that he intended to alter his decision to retain the lead ership. Nolan was the only member present who favored Parnell's retention in office. McCarthy, whose frequent allusions to Parnell's great sacrifices for the Irish cause were applauded, said he hoped after due consideration Pamell would see his way to retire for the present. Sexton said he regretted that Mr. Gladstone'B views regarding the ieao->r ship had been withheld yesterday. He sympathetically appealed to Parnell to reconsider his position. The question had assumed a new phase since the pub lication of Gladstone's letter. Per/jonat considerations must be sacrificed for the cause. Parnell maintained an attitude of re serve throughout the meeting. It was hoped that a cable from the delegates in America would reach Lon don before the meeting adjourned, but none was received. The decision to re assemble at 5 o'clock was caused by the hope that a dispatch would arrive in the interval. The Nationalists met again at 5 o'clock, but adjourned until Monday without action. In the Commons. When Gladstone entered the com mons, he was loudly cheered by bis Lib eral colleagues. Parnell was present and occupied his usual seat. Leave was granted Gladstone to intro duce a bill removing the disability pre venting Catholics from becoming lord chancellor of England or lord lieutenant of Ireland. Urged to Retire. At the Nationalist meeting this after noon, Barry, Sheehy, Lane and Cum mins urged that Parnell retire. Mc- Carthy, Sexton and John O'Connor spoke in favor of his retaining the lead ership. All the speakers dilated elo quently upon Parnell's paat services. The Situation Altered. Dublin, Nov. 26. —United Ireland says the decision of Gladstone and the other faithful friends of home rule, al ters tho situation. Fidelity to Ireland overrides fidelity to Parnell. The defec tion of the Liberals would indefinitely postpone the triumph of the home rule movement, THB AMERICA* D«TICOAI*C i ' They Will Meet to Interchange Views on Parnell's Case. New Yobs:, Nov. 20.— T. P. Gill, one of the Irish delegates, aaid, thia even ing, that today'a London meeting waa postponed without action to allow the delegatea here the opportunity of con sulting together. They will probably meet Friday at Cincinnati and inter change views. Gill warna the friends of the Irish cause to beware of hasty con clusions. He declares flat disbelief in the alleged anger of the Irish members at Parnell's alleged refusal to summon a second meeting, and is equally incredulous as to the state ment credited to an Irish member that the party would follow Parnell even if home rule was delayed fifteen years. "A grave criais is undoubtedly caused by Gladstone's letter," said Gill, "but the Irish membei'B may be relied on to act with patriotism. Parnell and the Irish party will decide the question presented them by Gladstone's letter apart from any personal consideration whatever, and wholly on considerations for the best interest of the case, which ia the moat aacred concern of their livea." As to the probable decision of the party, (iill would give no opinion. He added that when Parnell's mouth was unsealed, the judgment which had been formed would be presented in a different light. Gill feels confident that the next few daya will allow the parties to con sider the situation coolly, and enable a cordial nnderatanding between the Engliahiand Irish home rulers, in a man ner gratifying to the grand old man, and honorable to the Irish people and Parnell. O'Brien, who is in Cincinnati, sent a cablegram to the other side thia after noon, earnestly recommending that the party open communications with Gladstone. AMONG THE SPORTS.
