The Home Rule Structure Top pled on His Head. Ireland's Strong Man Buried Be neath the Ruins. The Parnellite Factions Waging Their War to the Bitter End—The Irish Leader's Doom. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Nov. 29. —The manifesto is ued by Parnell will effect no change in the position of his supporters and oppo nents among the Irish members of par liament, but will give the poll to be taken at the meeting of the National ists Monday a final and decisive charac ter. The manifesto shifts the scene of conflict to Ireland. After Monday conn try conventions will be held in Ireland to ascertain the opinions of the Nation alists and clergy. Healy and Sexton and a number of other opponents of Parnell held a con ference today. Parnell's manifesto has stiffened their opposition, and they have resolved to issue a counter-mani festo forthwith. This manifesto will bear a formidable list of signatures. The fight between the two factions will be fought to the bitter end. Neither side wfill leave a stone unturned. Sexton and Healy are taking the opin ion of each Irish member of parliament as to the advisability of organizing a movement for the alliance of the anti- Parnellites with the Gladstoniana. The Pall Mall Gazette says Parnell in tends to start for Ireland tonight to evade the definite declaration of the Parnellitr members of the commons on the question of the leadership, when the vote is taken Monday. Parnell will treat that portion of his followers who remain attached to him, as the real Irish party, and cut the deserters off. Forty-four members receive pnv, through Parnel', who retains absolute control of the fund for the payment vi Irish members. " Justin McCarthy lias communicated with his colleagues in America by cable, and is said to nave influenced several waverers against Parnell. The defeat of Parnell at the Nationalist meeting Mon day is now considered a foregone con clusion. The statement that Parnell controls the Irish parliamentary fund is not true. The fund is in the hands of McCarthy and James Francis O'Brien. At a meeting of the Cork branch of the National league, it transpired that Parnell had not informed any of his con stituents af his intention previous to the publication of his manifest !. The meet ing unanimously resolved to summon a conference with Parnell in case he goes to Cork. The manifesto has undoubt edly alienated a section of Parnell's con stituents. Fitzgerald and O'Kelley (Nationalists), have telegraphed their constituents that they will resign if Par nell is sacrificed. Morley will publish a reply to Par nell's manifesto Monday. The Coik clergy today adopted a reso lution declaring that Parnell had for feited their confidence, and his retention in the leadership would prove disas trous. GLADSTONE'S MANIFESTO. The Old Man Denies Parnell's Allegations in Tnto. London, Nov. 29.—Gladstone has is sued a reply to Parnell's manifesto, in ■which he denies in toto the statements made by the Irish leader in regard to the retention of Irish members in the imperial parliament, the settlement of the land or agrarian difficulty in Ireland, the control of the Irish constabulary, and the appointment of the judiciary in Ireland. Gladstone says he will not apply a single epithet to Parnell, not being "his judge. He believes, however, that he showed by his course in the matter of the special commission appointed to in vestigate the charges made against Par nell, in the throwing out of the Pigott letters, that he had no indisposition to do Parnell justice. Gladstone then comes to a recital of the proposal alleged by Parnell in his manifesto to have been made to him during his visit to Glaastone, at Hawar den, last November, in regard to the intended proposals concerning home rule in the event of the Liberal party winning at the next, general election. Gladstone declares that no single sug gestion was offered by him to Parnell, either as a formal or a final one. The conversation then held was a statement, perfectly free, without prejudice of Eoints on which Gladstone, and such of is colleagues as were inclined to be . lieve that the home-rule plan of 1886 could be improved, differed, and concerning which he was desirous to know whether any serious objection had risen in the mind of Parnell. To none of these suggestions did Parnell raise serious objections. Gladstone denies that he made the statement which Parnell's memory as cribes to him, or anything substantially resembling them, either as to the re tention of Irish members in the imperial parliament, or the settlement of the land question or agrarian difficulties, or con stabulary control. The conversation be tween them was strictly confidential. To publish even a true account of it was to break the seal of confidence which alone renders political co-operation pos sible. Every suggestion made to Par nell was from written momaranda, to which Gladstone can refer. Neither Parnell nor himself was bound by the conversation to absolute acceptance of the proposals canvassed. During the year that has since elapsed, he never received from Parnell any intimation of an alteration iv his views regarding any of them. In conclusion Gladstone says he al ways U>eld, both in public and private, that the National party of Ireland ought to remain entirely independent of the Liberal party of Great Britain. It is their duty and his duty, conformably with the spiriUof Grattau and O'Con- Nell to study all the adjustments in the great matter of home rule which may tend to draw to their side moderate, equitable men. But for him to propose any measure, except such aa Ireland could approve on the lines already laid down, would be a fatuity, as regards himself, and treachery to the Irish na tion in which even by the side of Par nell, he can claim to take an interest. A OESPKHATK MOVE. Davltt and Labouchere Pronounce Par nell's Course Madness. London, Nov. 29. —Michael Davitt, when interviewed in regard to the po litical crisis, said: "Parnell's manifesto is a last desperate move. I do not see how he could have struck Ireland a worse blow. He is furious in his attack against the majority of his party and in his anger against them and Gladstone's letter, runs amuck. According to him a number of the members of his own party are false, and Gladstone and the English Liberal wire-pullers are schem ing against him." Davitt, fuither referring to Parnell's cry against the Hawarden proposals, said he agreed in 1886 to clauses of the bill entirely excluding Irish representa tion, and retaining for the time impe rial control of the police and judiciary. The Hawarden proposals were as bad when made as now. Why didn't he appeal before? Davitt says: "Parnell has shattered all hopes of home rule for Ireland for years, simply for personal ends and re venge, just as in 1882 he shattered the Land League to get out of Kilmairham jail, and prepared in 1886 to smash his party and debauch the institutions of liis country, to thrust O'Shea on the Galway electors." In an interview today Henry Labou chere, member of parliament and editor of Truth, said it would be charitable to suppose Parnell was mad. It is impos sible to suppose that a sane man with any sense of honor or patriotism, would issue a manifesto so dishonoring to him self and his country's cause. THE AMERICAN DELEGATES. They are Slow to Commit Themselves on the Parnell Question. Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 29. —O'Brien, Dillon, O'Connor, Harrington, Gill and Sullivan, arrived here at noon, en route to Chicago. They stopped six minutes. O'P.rien speaking for tbe whole party, said they were not prepared to say any thing regarding Parnell's manifesto. Chicago, Nov. 29.—The Irish delegates arrived in this city this evening. They were met at Kensington by a large re ception committee, headed by Mayor Crcgier and many other prominent citi zens. An Associated Press represantative showed to the delegates a synopsis of Gladstone's reply to Parnell's manifesto. Each of them read it carefully in turn, but refused to make any comment what ever. Mr. Dillon says when they give an opinion they wish to do it as "the united sentiment of the entire party, and until such time will not speak. Timothy Harrington was overheard to remark, in conversation with a friend, teferring to Gladstone's reply: ''Too bad to have contradiction between two such men and at such a time." STAINS OF BLOOD TELL THE TALE OF IVETT'S TAK ING- OFF. A Damaging Web of Evidence Woven Around August Olsen—Mrs. Ivett Ad ministers Her Husband's Estate. Merced, Cal., Nov. 29.—August Ol sen's examination was resumed today. F. T. Griffith and John Gibbons each testilied to rinding the overalls at Mrs. Olsen's, with what appeared to be blood on them; that Frank Peterson said they were August Olsen's overalls. Dr. Sherman, as an expert on blood stains, said he received the overalls two weeks ago, and at the request of the dis trict attorney made a microscopical in vestigation of the spots thereon. The doctor said the stains were blood, and that the corpuscles correspond with the corpuscles of human blood, and the blood was filled with dust and grit as if it had been rubbed. J. B. Warren and Wiley Nelson testi fied to Olsen being on the ranch for three days previous to the murder, and leaving Sunday evening. Dr. O'Brien, the coroner who held the inquest, testified that all the statements made by Olsen before him were volun tary. Olsen acknowledged the owner ship of a hacamo to the jury; the cor oner found the hacamo in the barn at Ivett's, on Olsen's horee. He found stains thereon that in his opinion were blood. The court took a recess. This afternoon L. Lavarjo testified that the day after Ivett was murdered he asked Olsen if he had heard Ivett was killed. Olsen said: "Yes, I heard it," and did not show much concern or ask for particulars. B. T. Fowler said he was at Ivett's ranch Monday and Tuesday ; examined the horse's tracks and made a diagram afterwards; found Olsen's horse and fitted the diagram to the feet and they tallied. Witness said he heard Olsen testify before the coroner's jury that he lost a pair of pincers and a hammer. The defense objected, and in argument the prosecution said they expected to prove that Olsen had a hammer that he said he lost in a certain part of the country; although a reward was offered for the hammer. and people had searched for it, it had not been produced. Mr. Fowler was allowed to tell what he 6aid at the inquest. He also said he examined Olsen's horse, on the day mentioned; it appeared as though the shoes had lately been pulled. Owing to the fact that the grand jury meets here Monday, and will require the attendance of the district attorney, the court adjourned until Thursday next. In the superior court this morning P. J. Hazen, Mrs. Ivett's attorney, moved that she be appointed adminis tratrix of her late husband's estate. He etated that the personal property was worth about $80,000: there was 125,000 acres of land, about two-thirds of which was in Merced county, the balance in Mariposa. The court made an order aa asked for, and fixed tbe bonds at $160, --000. SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 30, 1890. CO-WE-JO. Johnson Sides Not the Red Messiah. Captain Jack Wilson Claims That Honor. Tho Faith Spreading Among the Southwestern Tribes. The Sioux Hostiles Completely Hemmed In by Troops—Buffalo Bill Alter Sitting Bull. Assooiated Press Dispatches. Washington, Nov. 29.—Mr. Mayhugb, until recently special census agent of Indians for Nevada, lias written the In dian bureau about the alleged Messiah, who has been referred to in these dis patches as "John Sides." Mayhugh says his name is not Sides, but Captain Jack Wilson, and is known to the Indi ans as Co-We-Jo. He goes into trances, seemingly, for several hours at times, in the presence of gatherings of Indians. On coming out of these trances he tells them he Has been to heaven, conferring with the Messiah; that the latter is coming to the earth and will put the In dians in possession of it. The Messiah is to appear on Mount Grant, about six teen miles soutii of the Walker river agency building. Mayhugh says the Indians hold this to be a Bacred moun tain. He thinks ii the Indians are let alone at the various reservations the whole thing will die out. All of the Walker lake Indians do not believe in it, although Chief Josephus doeß. Co-We- Jo'a influence is greatly strengthened by the fact that he has once or twice predicted the coming of rain w r hen badly needed. CAUSE OF THE GHOST DANCE. Mismanagement of the Indian Bureau Responsible for the Trouble. St. Paul, Nov. 29. —A Pioneer Press special from Pine Ridge agency says : A conference was held today between Special Agent Cooper, Agent Roger and ex-Agent. McGillicuddy and Chiefs Bad Yellow Hair, Little Wound, Little Bear and Broken Arm. Little Wound waa spokesman, and many questions sub mitted to him met with evasive an swers. He frequently asserted that he did not want war with the whites. He said the dance was organized by the Indiana because they have an accumu lation of grievances, and used this means to exhibit their discontent. The great cause of trouble seems to be jealousy among the chiefs and the Indiana. Little Wound made several statements which were directly at vari ance with the facts, and therefore ail the talk is taken with allowance. The sensational reports last night that a battle was imminent, had no foundation. The correspondent asserts that investigations have shown that mismanagement of the Indian bureau is largely responsible for the trouble. FUN FOR THE REDSKINS. The Newspaper Reports of their Orgies Tickle Them. PiF.RnE, S. D., Nov. 29.—The fact that several companies of troops have reached I the Bad Land country, and will head off any marauding Indians, has resulted in the subsidence, to a large extent, of the ecare. An Indian who was sent to Big Foot and Hump's camps, at the mouth of Cherry creek, sometime ago, returned to Fort Bennett today, and says the intention of the hos tiles is to join Short Bull on Pass creek and subsist there during the winter on the cattle quartered in the Bad Lands. He said there was a number of educated Indians among the Cherry creek hos- I tiles, who came to Pierre regu larly and bought copies of the papers. These they took back and read to the other Indians. The Indians, he said, enjoyed greatly the reports of the great alarm everywhere among the whites. It, seemed to strengthen their belief I that the Messiah was coming, and the I whites ready either to die off or to leave j the laud to the Indians. NOT BCLLET PROOF. The Faith of the Bucks Shaken by a Fatal Experiment. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 29.—The Bee's Pine Ridge correspondent telegrapliß tonight t!iat all appears to be in readi ness for a move of the Ninth cavalry,pre sumably against the ghost dancers, but no information can be obtained. The correspondent learns that troops are now stationed all around the discontented Indians, in such a manner that the latter could be rounded up and con fronted by an overwhelming force with out delay. Dancing continues at Wound ed Knee. A scout, who came in this morning, tells a story which may shake the faith of the dancers. The medicine men con cocted a fluid in which the war shirts were to be dipped, after which they were to be proof against bullets. One buck had his shirtprepared, and putting it on, jumped into a circle and ordered the dancers to fire at him. Several did, aud the bullet-proof man fell mortally wounded. IN THE SOUTHWEST. Rumors of Ghost Dances and Hostile Demonstrations. Paris, Texas, Nov. 29.—Information reached here tonight from the Com manche and Kiowa reservations-, that a great number have joined theCheyennes j and Arapahoes in the Messiah " craze, and are now in full force on the Canadian i river, where the ghost dance is in pro gress. It is estimated that 3000 are there all armed and with plenty of cat tle. Arkansas City, Kan., Nov. 29. —A trader from the Osage reservation says the Osage Indians have begun' the Khost dance and are very ugly and insolent. They are well armed and the richest and most powerful tribes in the territory outside of the Five Nations. The agent has asked for assistance. Indian Commissioner Morgan arrived in the city this evening after an extend ed tour over the various reservations in Indian territory. According to his ac count the ghost dances have almost en tirely ceased, and there is no prospect of trouble down there. St. Louis, Mo., Nov. 29.—A telegram from Fort Sill calls attention to the fact that the troops are being drawn away from the west and southwest to Dakota, leaving the inhabitants in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona exposed to danger from the wild, fierce tribes. The Blanket Indiana in the southwestern part of Indian territory have caught the Messiah craze, and are dancing. Fort Wingate, N. M., NOv. 29.—Ru mors are current of a probable uprising among the Navajo Indians. The sud den departure of the Sixth cavalry has made them bold. The post traders re port them as very i solent and over- Waring. They are' holding dances, and it is believed the Messiah craze has reached them. Every evening they hold a dance near the limits of the post, led by the medicine men. Ranchers report that cattle are beingkilled, horses stolen and cowboys attacked. TO ARREST SITTING DULL. Buffalo Bill Goes In Quest of the Wily Old Chief. Minneapolis, Nov. 29.—A special from Standing Rock agency says: Buffalo Bill and Major Powell had not been ruany hours at the agency today, before the report waa spread that they had come for the purpose of arresting Sitting Bull and removing him from the reservation. Cody and one or two others left for Bull's camp about noou. Trouble is anticipated in case his arrest is at tempted, and the soldiers at Fort Yates are prepared for a campaign at a mo ment's notice. In formation is obtained tonight that the commanding officer of the post haa received instructions from General Miles to poatpone the arrest of Sitting Bull for the present. Agent McLaughlin has couriers out to catch Buffalo Bill. Mes sengers from Bull's camp last night re ported the dance going or., but every thing quiet. Soveral More Arrests. Chamberlain, S. D., Nov. 29. —The In dian police at Lower Brule made several more arrests today, but the dance still continues at White river. No danger ia apprehended. CLARA'S CLAIM. Mr. Cogswell Must Pay Mrs. Folta $1450 for Services. San Francisco, Nov. 29. —The supreme court today rendered a decision affirm ing the decision of the superior court in the case of Clara Foltz against Henry D. Cogswell. According to the complaint, Cogswell employed Mrs. Foltz in 1883' to draft and push through the legisla ture a bill to have certain lands which he had deeded to the university recon veyed to him. She accomplished the -Work, and presented a bill of $5000 for her services, claiming that Cogswell had agreed to pay that amount. He re fused to pay that sum, and Mrs. Foltz instituted suit. The jury awarded her $1450. Cogswell took an appeal, claim ing that he had agreed to pay but $200 for the work. The supreme court ren dered a decision against him. A BRUTAL MURDER. A, DEPUTY CONSTABLE-3 GORY CRIME. He Abuses His Authority by Shooting an Inoffensive Man in the Back—Pop ular Indignation Aroused. Fresno, Cal., Nov. 29.—Little else is discussed here but the killing of Can field, who died yesterday afternoon from a gunshot wound inflicted by Deputy Constable Lane. The inquest, which was held at Sanger today, was at tended by a large number of the citizens of Fresno, and some new facts were elicited from the witnesses, which have not yet been published. Canfield, who worked for the Selma livery stable, had carried two women, with their bpggage, from that place to Sanger, where they were to make their future home. The women belonged to the demi-monde class, and the party was met shortly af ter their arrival by Lane, who insisted upon forcing his attentions upon them. Lane was drinking, and but little atten tion was paid to him. Cantield took his passeigers to a house across the track, and was unpacking some of their household goods, when l ane, pistol in hand, knocked at the door. When he announced that he was an offi cer, the door was opened. He stated that he wanted to arrest every man in the house, and Canfield being near, was covered by the officer's revolver. "Show me your warrant," cried Can field, "and I will go with you," at the same'time taking hold of the pistol in such a manner as to point the muzzle at the ceiling. "I will shoot you," yelled Lane. Then ensued a lively tussle, Canfield trying to release himself from the grasp of Lane, who was evidently intent upon using his revolver. Canfield realized this determination. By this time Lane had pulled Cantield into an adjoining room, which was unoccupied. Canfield finally released himself from the vise-like grip of Lane and watched his opportunity to dodge out of the room, but Lane was too quick for him, and he had gone but three steps when he was shot in the back. Lane left the house immediately and stationed himself out about thirty yards from the front door. He was preceded by his victim, who fell on the front of the porch, but not before Lane had fired another shot at his fleeing form, which did not take effect. Harry Coleman, who occupied an ad joining room where the shooting oc curred, rushed out upon the porch to assist Canfield in the house. Coleman was bending over the wounded man, when Lane yelled: "There's another s— of a b — I want," and fired two shots, which found a lodg ment in the wall close to Coleman. The jury rendered a verdict to the ef fect that Canfield came to his death by a gunshot wound inflicted by Lane. Weekly Bank Statement. New York, Nov. 29. —The weekly bank statement shows a reserve increase of $293,000. The banks now hold $380, --000 in excess of the\legftl reaniremeLtg. IN THE FATHERLAND. Koch's Remedy an Item of Public Concern. The Secret of the Lymph Not Yet Disclosed. Gladstone's Permanent Retirement Makes the Germans Glad. The Sugar Tariff to Be Radically Revised. Somber Uniforms to Be Worn by the Army. Berlin, Nov. 29.—1n the diet today, Minister Vongassler, replying to inter pellations, said the aspersions cast upon certain physicians engaged in using Koch's lymph had proved groundless. Care was taken, he said, to make the remedy perfectly accessible to the poor. In the course of time the preparation of the lymph would be entrusted to com petent persons employed by the state. There was no good ground yet to hope that the remedy would be found effica cious in tho treatment of other diseases than tuberculosis. A private gentleman had given a million marks to be used for the benefit of poor persons suffering from tuberculosis. Regarding the question of placing the manufacture of the lymph under ex clusive control, he stated that a feeling of satisfaction would be experienced throughout the world if Prussia should get her stamp on the lymph. The gov ernment would eventually invite other nations to send representatives to study the use of the medicine in order that they might apply it in their own country. The ministerial statement, represent ing as it does, the intended prolonga tion of the guarding of the secret of the lymph, greatly disappoints foreign med ical men here. Rejoicing Over Gladstone's Extinction. Since the Parnell developments have shattered Gladstone's chances of return to power, the report ia current here that Lord Salisbury will come to Berlin on a visit. This is believed to imply a meeting between Caprivi, Kal noky, Crispi and Salisbury, and a more open adhesion hy the English govern ment to the policy of the dreibund. The extinction of Gladstone is the most grateful news that Emperor William and his circle have ever heard from England. Kevising the Sugar Tariff. The first bill to come before the Reich stag, Tuesday, will be one providing for — ' " ■ 0 —— BS V.«.'Vr*w IV THIS TURKEY WAS NOT IN IT. It is scarcely necessary to tell the story of the festive tur key which figures in the picture. Many marvelously narrow escapes have gone down to history, but this, perhaps, was the narrowest of all. In another moment the knife of the butcher would have ended its career. A flash of genius came to it in that instant of fearful peril, and it took refuge in the store of the LONDON CLOTHING CO.

Chicago, Nov. 29.—Ten thousand peo ple assembled in Battery D, and 2000 more in the Second regiment armory, adjoining, tonight, to see and hear the Irish parliamentary delegates. The gathering was a notable one. Among the prominent figures in the audience was Mrs. Julia Parnell, mother of the man still at the helm of Irish affairs. The large list of vice-presidents of the meeting represented practically every shade of Irish opinion in Chicago, be sides many prominent citizens not di rectly identified with the Irish move ment. (Dillon, O'Brien' O'Connor, Har rington, Sullivan and Gill were escorted to the platform amid wild cheers. As John Dillon advanced to the front of the stage, the cheering broke out again, and it was impossible for him to begin speaking for several minutes. Dillon dwelt at considerable length on Ireland's struggles and the mission of the delegates. The telling points in his speech were received with tremendous enthusiasm. William O'Brien spoke next and was accorded a welcome reception. The speaking was then suspended for a half hour, during which contributions were received by tellers appointed to canvass the audience. Besides a great mass of small contributions, fiifteen or twenty prominent citizens handed in amounts ranging from $100 to $500. O'Connor, Harrington, Sullivan and Gill then spoke, after which resolutions were adopted welcoming the Irish dele gates, pledging the assembly anew to the cause of home rule, and extolling the public services of Parnell, but refraining from dictating a policy to the Irish peo ple in choosing a leader in the present crisis. The overflow meeting in the Second regiment armory was almost an ex ; duplicate of the larger affair. Belmont's Funeral. New York, Nov. 29.—The funeral the late August Belmont was conduc in the Church of the Ascension tod. The edifice was crowded. The pt' bearers included ex-President Groi Cleveland and Governor Hill.
