Parnell Determined to Stand
By His Guns.
He Issues a Manifesto to the
Gladstone and Morley Handled With
out Gloves.
Ii He" Is Ousted From the Leadership He
Will Continue to Worry the
Associated Press Dispatches.
London, Nov. 28. — The manifesto
'vhich Parnell promised to issue today,
dealing with all the questions involved
m tiie present political crisis, was made
public this afternoon, and definitely set
tles the fact that Parnell will not volun
tarily retire from the leadership. The
manifesto is Cf great length and sets
forth why, in Parnell's opinion, it would
be disastrous to the best interests of the
party for him to withdraw. Parnell de
fies his political opponents and appeals
to the people of Ireland to sustain him
in the stand he has taken.
He begins by saying: "Tbe integrity
and independence of a section of the
Irish parliamentary party having been
apparently sapped and destroyed |by
the wire-pullers of the Liberal party, it
has become necessary for me, as the
leader of the Irish party, to take counsel
with you, and, having given you the
knowledge which is in my possession,
ask your judgment upon a matter which
now solely devolves upon you to decide.
A letter from Gladstone to Morley,
written for the purpose of influencing
the decision of the Irish party in the
choice of a leader, and claiming for the
Liberals and their leaders the right of
veto upon their choice, is the immediate
cause of this address, the purpose of
which is to remind you and your parlia
mentary representatives that Ireland
considers the independence of her party
as her only safeguard within the consti
tution, and above and beyond all other
considerations whatever. The threat in
that letter, repeated so insolently in
many platforms and in numerous British
newspapers, compels me to put before
you information which previous to this
lime has been solely in my possession,
and which will enable ycu to understand
tbe measure of the loss which you are
threatened with, unless you consent to
throw me to the English wolves now
howling for my destruction."
Parnell then tells how at Hawarden,
last November, he received from Glad
stone the details of that gentleman and
his colleague's proposal with regard to
home rule in the event of the next gen
eral election favoring the Liberal party.
Upon the subject of the Irish members
in the imperial parliament, Gladstone
told him that in order to conciliate Eng
lish public opinion it would be necessary
to reduce the Irish representatives from
103 to 32.
Upon the settlement of tbe land ques
tion, Gladstone intimated that while he
would renew his attempt to settle the
matter hy imperial legislation on the
lines of the land purchase bill of 188ii,he
would not undertake to put any pressure
upon his own side; in other words, that
Irish legislation was not to be given the
power of settling agrarian difficulties.
With regard to the control of the Irish
constabulary, it was stated by Glad
stone, that in view of the necessity of
conciliating English public opinion, it
would be necessary to leave this force,
as to the appointment of its officers, un
der the control of imperial authority,
for an indefinite period, while the funds
for its maintenance would be compulso
rily provided out of the Irish revenue.
A period of ten or twelve years was sug
gested as tho limit of the time during
which the appointment of judges and
resident magistrates should be retained
in the hands of imperial authorities.
Passing to the expressions on these
points, which Parnell says represent
his views, then and now, he says with
regard to the retention of the Irish mem
bers, that he holds that with the con
cession of full powers to an Irish legis
lature, equivalent to those of a
state of the American union, the
number and position of members so
retained would become a question of
imperial concern and not of pressing or
immediate importance for the interest
of Ireland; but with that important and
all-engrossing subjects of agrarian re
form, constabulary and judicial appoint
ments left either under imperial control
or totally unprovided for. it would be
the height of madness for any Irish
leader to imitate Grattan's example and
consent to disband an army which has
cleared the way to victory.
"I further undertook," says Parnell,
"to use every legitimate influence to
reconcile Irish public opinion to tho
gradual coming into force of new privi
leges and to the postponement necessary
for tha conciliation of English opinion
with regard to constabulary control and
judicial appointments; but I strongly
dissented from the proposed reduction
of the number ot members during the
interval of probation, and pointed to the
absence of any suitable project of land
settlenient by either parliament as a con
stitutional and overwhelming drag upon
the prospects of permanent peace and
prosperity in Ireland."
At the conclusion of the interview,
Parnell was informed that, pending the
general election, Gladstone and his col
leagues were agreed that silence should
be preserved with regard to these points
of difference. The absence of any pro
vision for the settlement of the agrarian
question or any policy on the part of the
Liberal leaders, Parnell says, filled him
with concern and apprehension.
On the introduction of the land pur
chase bill by the government at tho
commencement of the last session, Mor
ley conferred with him with regard to
the avowed absence of any policy on the
part of the Liberals. Parliell strongly
advised Morley against any direct chal
lenge on the principle "of state-aided
land purchase, and that they should
direct their efforts on second
reading to the assertion of the principle
of local control. In this Morley agreed
with him, but was at the same time
hampered by the extreme section of his
party, led by Labouchere, and in a sub
sequent interview impressed upon Par
nell the necessity of meeting the reading
of the bill with a strict negative, and
asked him to undertake the motion.
"I agreed, - ' says Parnell, "on the con
dition that I was not to attack the prin
ciple of the measure, but confine myself
to criticism of its details. I think his
was strategy, but it was a strat
egy adopted out of regard to English
prejudice and radical peculiarities. I
did the best possible under the circum
stances, and the several days' debate on
the second reading, contrasts favorably
with Labouchere'B recent abortive at
tempt to interpose a direct negative to
the first reading of a similar bill yes
.Just before the commencement of this
session, Parnell had another interview
with Morley, and impressed upon him
the impolicy of an oblique method of
procedure with reference to land pur
chase, and the necessity and importance
of providing for the question of local
control and limitation in the application
of the funds. "He agreed with me,"
says Parnell, "and I offered to move on
iiic ui'et fe&uillg Oi the uin, an amend
ment in favor of this local control, ad
vising that if this was rejected, it might
be left to the radicals on second reading
to oppose the principle of the measure.
I left Morley under the impression that
this would be my duty, but in addition
he made a remarkable proposal. Re
ferring to the probable approaching vic
tory of the liberals he suggested some
considerations as to the future of the
Irish party, and asked me whether I
would be willing to assume the offlce of
chief secretary for Ireland, or whether I
would allow another member to take
that position. He also put before me
the desirability of filling one of the law
offices of the crown in Ireland by a legal
member of my party. I told him,
amazed as I was at the proposal, that I
could not agree to forfeit In any wav the
independence of the party or its mem
bers. The Irish people had trusted me
because they believed the declaration I
made in Cork, in 1880, represented my
conviction, and thai I would on no ac
count depart from it.
"I consider Morley'a proposal that we
should allow ourselves to be absorbed
into English politics, as one based upon
an entire misconception of our position.
In conclusion Morley directed my at
tention to a plan of campaign, in regard
to estates. He said it would be impos
sible for the Liberal party, when it at
tained power, to do anything for these
evicted tenants by direct action, and it
would also be impossible for the Irish
parliament under the powers cdhferred,
to do anything for them, and, flinging
up his hands with a gesture of despair,
lie exclaimed: 'Having been in Tipper
try, Ido not know what to propose.' I
told him this question was a limited
one; funds would be available from
America and elsewhere for the support
of those tenants as long as necessary,
and this difficulty should not be allowed
to interfere with the general interests of
the country."
Parnell says he alludes to this matter
only because within the last few days a
strong argument for his expulsion was
that unless Liberals come into
power at the next election,
the plan-of-campaign tenauts will
suffer. He has shown that the Lib
erals propose doing nothing for them,
and is entitled to ask that the existence
of these tenants whom he has supported
in every way in the past, and will con
tinue to support, shall not constitute a
reason for his expulsion from Irish poli
Parnell says .hat during the ten years
of independence of the Irish parliament
ary party it has, because of its inde
pendence, forced upon the English peo
ple the necessity of granting home rule
to Ireland. He believes the party will
obtain home rule, provided it remains
independent of any English party.
In conclusion he says: "I do not be
lieve any action of the Irish people in
supporting me will endanger the homo
rule cause or postpone the establishment
of an Irish parliament, but even if dan
ger were to be realized, I believe the
Irish people throughout the world would
agree with me that postponement would
be preferable to compromise of our na
tional rights by the acceptance of a
measure which would not realize the
aspirations of our race."
Uladstone Preparing One—Roth Parties'
Future Tactics.
London, Nov. 28.—1t is reported Glad
stone will issue a counter manifesto.
Gladstone today held a conference
with Earl Spencer and Morley.
It is stated that even if Parnell is out
voted at Monday's election, he will stick
to his seat for Cork and lntrrass the
Liberals as much as possible.
In case the Irish nationalist members,
at their meeting Monday, favor Parnell,
a movement will immediately be started
among the Liberals to give English re
forms precedence over home rule, and a
meeting to advocate reverting to the
programme of 18S5 will be summoned.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, it is be
lieved, will succeed Gladstone in the
leadership of the Liberal party in the
event of the latter retiring.
An important section of the Parnellites
met in the commons tonight, and re
polved upon action to combat the in
fluence of the manifesto resulting in the
appearance of a breach of faith. The
meeting adjourned to get the opinion of
the delegates in America.
Their Decision Predicted to Be Against
Cincinnati, Nov. 28.—Dillon, Harring
ton, O'Connor, Gill, O'Brien and Sulli
van held a secret conference tonight.
In response to interrogations, word was
sent out saying that all the statements
of their views on the present position of
the Irißh party, were entirely
unauthorized. The delegates have
made no communication to the
press as to their opinions
and do not intend to do so for the
A large number of telegrams have
been received, and the general opinion
among those who have studied the situ
ation is that the decision of the confer
ence will be against Parnell as leader.
O'Brien's name has been mentioned as
a possible leader, but it is said here -hat j
O'Brien himself would probably suggest |
some other man, such as Justin Me- •
London, Nov. 28.—N0 reply has be: i.
received from Dillon and O'Brien. The
•trained relations between the secti
of the Parnellite party are becoming
marked. Parnell's supporters complain
that his opponents are using unusual
methods against him. They believe the
American delegates have been misled,
and have cabled warning thetu not to
accept the first version of the
meeting as correct, and describing
the proceedings from their own
point of view. The opponents of Par
nell take it for granted that. O'Connor',
Sullivan and Harrington will follow the
lead of O'Brien and Dillon, and unite
in the attempt to depose Parnell. They
think Gill's support of this movement
is doubtful.- They consider that Parnoll
has been totally misinformed regarding
the views of the Irish people generally.
They believe his manifesto will decrease
his hold upon the country and further
damage his position. His opponents
are preparing a counter manifesto.
Fifty-three Irish Members Will Voto
Against Him.
London, Nov. 28. —A canvass has been
conducted by the members of the Irish
parliamentary party opposed to Par
nell's retention of the leiulprshin, witfi

rick O'Brien, J. O'Brien, Roche, Sexton,
Sheehan, Sheehy, Tanner, and Webb.
The anti-Parnellites also rely upon the
votes of William O'Brien, T. P. O'Con
nor, T. P. Gill, andT. D. Sullivan.
The adherents of Parnell who an
nounced their intention to stick to the
old leader, number 23, namely : Byrne,
Henry Campbell, Conway, W. J. Cor

O'Connor, O'Kelly, Pinkerton, P. J.
Power, Richard Power, John Redmond
William Redmond and Sheil.
Both the supporters and opponents of
Parnell in the Irish Parliamentary
party, have agreed not to hold meetings
or begin popular agitation regarding the
nationalist leadership, until after the
meeting Monday.
The Papers Comment at Length on Tar
nell's Manifesto.
London, Nov. 28.—A1l the papers
comment at great length on Parnell's
The Post says: "The bomb has been
exploded in anger, aud Parnell turns
the evidence against the low conspira
tors to save his own political life. The
manifesto has rendered the prospects
for home rule worse than at any time
since 1885."
The Daily News says: "This is tbe
last fatal rlis-scrvice which obliterates
many, if not all, of his incomparable
The News appeals to the Irish clergy
and people not to allow Parnell to drag
down the home rule cause in his own
fall, by belief in the serious misappre
hensions of their English friends.
The Chronicle says: "Parnell's most
powerful blow is the revelation of the
abjec. paralysis of the Gladatonian
party over the land question, and Mor
ley's confession of their inability to as
sist the sufferers from the plan
of campaign. The manifesto shows
that Parnell is not a person
with whom any statesman can venture
to hold confidential relations. Irish in
gratitude in politics is proverbial, but
was never before avowed with such
cold calculating cynicism."
The Standard says : The manifesto is
highly damaging to the credit of Glad
stone and Morley as straightforward
statesmen. No English politician will
ever trust Parnell again, but he has
chosen the right line to win back the
fanatical regard of Irishmen."
Tho Times says: "The manifesto
shatters for ever the supposition that
Parneil can ever again be treated as a
trustworthy friend or honorable foe. It
is probably the most shameless document
of English public life seen since the
days of tbe revolution."
Tho Times thinks, however, that it
will probably effect its purpose in Ire
land, and refers to the severity of the
blow inflicted on Gladstone's impractica
ble schemes.

| Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Nov. 28.—The war de-
I partuient is in receipt of a number of
I dispatches from the seat of the Indian
tumble, all indicating an improvement
in the situation. General Brooke says
every day lessens the strength of the
disaffected. Little Wound has come
into Tine Ridge agency, and his brother
braves are following him. Short Bull,
of Rosebud agency, one of the most
' troublesome of the" Sioux, and his fol-
I lowers, to the number of 500 lodges, re
turned to Pine Ridge Thursday.
Acting Indian Commissioner Belt to
day received a telegram from Agent
Dixon, at Crow Creek agency, S. D.,
saying noneof hislndians have"yet been
dancing. A small band of Lower Brules,
near Rosebud reservation, have been
dancing, and he has dispatched a force
of police and scouts to stop it. He has
also called home all the Indians having
passes to leave the reservation, and says
he considers it impossible-to be sur
prised in any outbreak the Lower Brules
may make."
Chambeblauv, S. D., Nov. 28.—The
Lower Brule Indian police last night
started in to break up the ghost dances,
and today eight leading dancers are in
jail at the agency. Another dance is
; reported as organizing for tonight, and
j the police are ready for it. Affairs are
I lively for the time, but the police are
j too much for the adherents of the new

Omaha, Neb., Nov. 28. —A special to
i tho Bee from Pine Ridge says: The beef
j issue passed off yesterday without any
j exciting features. One hundred and
I ninety steers were turned loose. Hawk
i Head and Big Horse, reliable Indian po
| licomen, have reached the agency with
j news that their families have been
! stolen by a band oi 200 Indians
that had deserted from Rosebud a
I few hours before and lushed off
ito join 1300 other Indians. The de
i serters are now only fifteen miles north-
I east of I'ine Ridge agency. When
: Hawk Head and Big Horse discovered
i that their families were missing, they
j immediately set out in pursuit of the
j deserters. The latter refused to give up
! the families. The policemen begged
and entreated the deserters to give them
! back their wives and children, but only
i got curses and threats against their
lives. Before they got away from the
| band members of the latter said: "Go
tell the soldiers as Pine Ridge we are
; part of 1300 other Rosebud Indiaus now
j near Pine Ridge, and from now on we
' are going to kill every white person we
! meet, and if the soldiers come we are
; ready for them."
! It is predicted by the Bee correspond
j ent that within thirty-six hours the
j troops will be ordered to disarm or shoot
j down the murderers, and when the
I troops do start after them, the end will
!be no Custer affair. A move will un
| doubtedly be made under cover of dark
ness, and by a forced march the attack
and finish will both occur between the
rising and the setting of the moon. The
scene o£ action will be some fifteen or
twenty miles northeast of the agency.

dance, and were swearing vengeance
against the whites for conspiring to stop
them. The Indians said they were re
solved to resist interference to the last
man. Little Wound, who left the agency
yesterday with protestations that his
men had stopped dancing, was in the
dance with all his band. The friendly
Indian further said the dancers were
still burning the houses of settlers and
killing all the cattle they could find.

San Fkancisco, Nov. 28. —Just as the
season for orange shipments is about to
open, the overland railroads have de
cided to make a rate for them that wi!!
be the same from this state to all east
ern points. This rate is to be $1.25 per
100 pounds, which is an increase of
cents over the old rates on shipments
made to the Missouri river. To other
eastern points there is no change, the
rate now being $1.25. This change will
go into effect in a few days, as will
also an advance of 10 cents per
100 pounds on bean shipments.
No change, however, is to be made on
the existing tariff on grease and scoured
wool. Other changes in the way of in
crease are to be made next week, until
