special from Pierre, S. D., says the state
ment made by cattlemen Phillips and

ment there. Phillips and Waldron are

all the prominent Indians and their
ways, having married into the tribe
and great reliance is placed on their
assertion that trouble is coming.
There is a report that army officers have
been ordered to capture Short Bull and
some other leaders. Phillips and Wald
ron are aure such an attempt will pre
cipitate bloodshed. In case of an out
break, grave apprehensions are felt for

scatter up there and destroy everything
long before the troops can catch them.

; De Young Wants to Insure the Erec
tion of None But Good Buildings;.
Chicago, Nov. 26.—The worhP.B fair
national couimisßion, this evening, ad
journed until next April, leaving all in
shape for a communication to be sent to
the preaideut, notifying him of the ac
ceptance of a site and plans and apeciri
catioiis for buildings for the world's
Columbian exposition, according to the
act of congress. Only one thing now
remains befoffe President Harrison
ißaues a proclamation to the world,
fixing the date for tbe opening and
closing of the exposition—a formal noti
fication from the local directory that the
world's fair corporation has at hand
funds to the amount of $10,000,000. This
notification ia expected to be promptly
made.
The commission had an acrimonious
debate, this morning, over the report of
the committee on buildings aud grounds,
Commissioner De Young pointing out
that the plans for the buildings were
merely in verbal outline, without work
ing plans, and he declared that a loop
hole was left through which the local
directory might come up with a lot of
mere shells. He moved that the build
ings be made of glass, steel and iron,
and fire proof.
After a lengthy discussion his sug
gestion was adopted, and the report of
the committee was then adopted.
Sunday closing was postponed until
the directors prepare the rules for the
government of the fair.
The lady managers also adjourned af
ter they received a communication from
the executive committee of the commis
sion, informing the board that it might
adopt such measures and agencies to
carry out its work as it decided fit, sub
ject to the approval of the commission.
Chairman Waller of the foreign affairs
committee, today telegraphed Mr. Blame
regarding the incident of day before
yesterday, assuring him that neither
the committee nor the commission con
sidered the department's movement in
any sense a political one. "Some peo
ple," he said, "can discover politics in
the Lord's prayer, but they are fortu
nately neither numerous nor influen
tial."
Governor Waller added that the re
port of the committee had been unani
mously adopted.
Secretary Blame telegraphed thanks
in return.

PARNELL'S POSITION.
The Irish Leader Will Not
Resign.
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.
