THE LAST STRAW.
The Parnell Camel's Back Is
Broken.
The American Envoys Renounce
His Leadership.
All But Timothy Harrington Sign
the Manifesto.
The Irish Clergy and Other Influential
Bodies Demand His Immediate
Abdication
Associated Press Dispatches.
Chicaoo. Nov. 30. —The view., of the
Irish envoys now in America, excepting
Timothy Harrington, were cabled to
■Justin McCarthy, vice chairman of the
Irish parliamentary party, tonight. The
delegates say, in part:
"Our sense of the matchless genius of
Mr. Parnell as leader; of the imperish
able services he has rendered the Irish
cause; of the courage, integrity and
splendid success with which he has led
our people for ten years, and the per
sonal respect and affection which for
years bound us to him. have made us
suspend to the last possible moment
onr judgment against his further leader
ship. The obligation to express that
judgment is to all of us the most painful
duty of our lives. No earthly considera
tion could move us to our determina
tion, except the solemn conviction that
we are driven to choose be
tween Parnell and the destruction of
our country's cause. The manifesto
which Parnell has just issued cuts us'off
from the last hope to which we clung.
Anxious to avoid a word that might em
bitter this controversy, we shall not
dwell upon the cruel injustice with
which he treats the members of the
paitythat has followed him with a
loyalty and affection, such as no leader
ever experienced before. His recollec
tion of their fealty to him in the darkest
hour of his trials, might well have saved
them from the imputation that any
section of them could have allowed their
integrity to be sapped by Liberal wire
pullers.
"The method in which, ignoring the
origin of the present calamitous situa
tion, Mr. Parnell has endeavored to
fasten the responsibility for it upon
Gladstone and Morley, compels us to
disassociate ourselves in the strongest
manner from an imputation which we
believe reckless and unjust.
"We view withabhorrence the attacks
made on Parnell by his public and pri
vate enemies under the cover of his pres
ent difficulties. To attacks like this, ad
dressed to a man of a proud and strong
spirit, we may attribute many of the
terrible dangers with which Ireland is
now threatened, and we fear they may
do the further mischief «f diverting the
minds of many people from the grave
national to purely personal issues. In
natural resentment of an ungenerous at
tack on a great leader in the hour of
stress and disaster, but while making
every possible allowance for Parnell's
feelings, we consider it unjust to the
English people and lamentable from the
point of view of international good feel
ing, to describe as English wolves those
who have not been able to bring them
selves to the same view to which grati
tude and necessity for union impelled
Parnell's colleagues and countrymen.
"The pica of Parnell that Gladstone's
letter involves the claim to dictate to
the Irish party and thereby strike at
the independence of that party, as a
strictly Irish national body, is otic calcu
lated to inspire every Irish Nationalist
with alarm, if that plea were not an ob
vious fallacy. Whatever differences of
opinion may exist as to the haste with
which Gladstone's letter was made pub
lic, it was obviously not his hostility to
his home rule, but his earnest desire to
save it from disaster that prompted
Gladstone to write his letter. We de
plore that the difficulties of Gladstone's
position were not frankly recognized by
Parnell, and that, on the contrary,
friendly private communications, obvi
ously made with the view of smoothing
the passage of the home rule bill, have
been made the basis of insinuations of
treachery to the Irish cause. By his
conviction, again and again expressed,
that home rule to be effective must be
such a measure as will satisfy the Irish
people, Gladstone is bound to" a full and
ample measure of self-government to
Ireland.
To offer any other scheme would be
not only an act of incredible baseness,
but of incredible folly ; and we emphat
ically seperate ourselves from any such
charge against Gladstone."
Referring to Morley's suggestion that
aome of the Irish party should co-operate
in carrying out the Irish programme on
Liberal lines, the manifesto says: "No
body who knows Morley's character will
doubt that the suggestion was made in
the honest belief that the Liberal minis
try would be helped in the difficult work
ot carrying through the details of the
Irish home rule bill by the co-operation
of their Irish colleagues, and it was not
an insidious attempt on the integrity
and independence of the Irish party."
It continues: "We have now to con
front the statement that Parnell's
leadership opens an impossible gulf be
tween the representatives of Ireland
and thi liberal party, who have faith
fully curved their "side of the agree
ment, md the situation is aggravated
by hisJeplorable expressions of ill-will
towart the British people, who have
agair and again within the past five
yearfmanifested their determination to
do jutice to Ireland, and have by their
votesparalyzed the arm of coercion. In
deliUately bringing things to this posi
tion, nrnell lias entered upon a rash
and fatl path upon which every con
sideratn of Ireland's safety, as well as
of persoal honor, forbid lis absolutely
to folio him.
" Wjt Mr. Parnell asks us to do,
strippeof all side issues, iH to sacrifice
all hop of an early settlement of the
Irish stiggle to his resolve to maintain
his peraal position. We are driven to
choose tween our leader and our
cause. Uhat said choice we cannot
hesitate ;e are convinced that the calm
but reeoUjcourse of action of our party
in this crl emergency will redound to
the advantage of the cause of furnishing
conclusive testimony of the capacity of
our party and people for self-govern
meat. We cannot relinquish
the hope that in the face of such de
cisive action by the representatives of
the Irish people, Parnell's sense of
patriotism will withhold him from
plunging Ireland into those horrors of
dissension which have so often robbed
her of liberty at the moment it was
within her grasp, and save him from un
doing in one passionate honr the results
of all his incomparable services to his
country."
STRANOELY I NltKAl .
Parnell'g Mother Kept In Blissful Ignor
ance of the Stampede.
CnicAoo. Nov. 30. —Tonight while
O'Brien, Gill and O'Connor were draw
ing up the document severing their con
nection with Parnell on the linos agreed
upon with their colleagues in the after
noon, the other delegates, Dillon, Sulli
van and Harrington, were dining in an
other part of the city in company with
Mrs. Parnell, the aged mother of the
man live of them had decided must le
tire. So far as can be learned, knowl
edge of what had been done was kept
from the old lady, and to those who
knew wlvtt WM going on down town,
the scene must have seemed strangely
unreal.
The delegates who signed the mani
festo were deeply agitated this evening,
but felt that they had taken the only
proper course. It was announced late
tonight that Harrington, who did not
sign the manifesto, will separate from
his comrades and return to Ireland. In
an interview Harrington said the leader
ship of Parnell was absolutely necessary
to success. He denies the" unity and
independence of the Irish party, and
deeuis Parnell's leadership necessary for
this.
BfOKLEV'S MANIFESTO.
Be Alleges Hint Parnell Has Done Him
Gross Injustice.
Lon»on, Nov. 30.—Morley has written
the press in reply to Parnell's action
with reference to the land bill. Both
Gladstone and himself completely recog
nized that their relations with the Irish
party were those of an independent al
liance, and not a fusion. "Parnell,"
he says, "imputed to me the remark
able object of absorbing the Irish party
into English politics by msans of office.
I made no such proposal. It was
natural that in a free confidential dis
cussion of the possible future, I should
wish to make sure for Gladstone's in
formation that Parnell would still hold
to his self-denying declaration of 1880.
His answer was what I fully antici
pated,"
Morely says that Tarnell's account of
what passed on the game occasion on
the subject of evicted tenants of the
plan-of-campaign estates, is incorrect.
Though he, (Morely), foresaw difficulty
in the way of the legislation, he never
said that he or any of his colleagues had
formed any conclusions against this leg
islation. He did say that, whether by
direct or indirect action, evicted tenants
ought not to be allowed to suffer. He
never hinted that it would be impossi
ble for an Irish parliament to do any
thing in the matter.
In conclusion he says that on Novem
ber 10th he was under the most distinct
impression that Parnell did not object to
the suggestions thrown out at Hawarden
a year ago, as subjects for provisional
examination, if those suggestions were
likely to make the scheme generally ac
ceptable to Great Britain.
PAKNBI.L.'H ATTITUDE.
He Usee Vitin Threats To Bring Glad>
stone to Terms.
London, Nov. 30. —Parnell and such of
his party as support him, had a confer
ence last night. It is understood that
Condon, Koche, Deasy and Lane urged
Parnell to retire. Parnell, however, ex
pressed his determination to fight to the
last. If Parnell's supporters adopt ob
structive tactics at the meeting to
morrow, the anti-Parnellites will
leave the meeting in a body
and vote for his retirement, else
where. The report is current that un
less Gladstone withdraws the denials in
his letter, Parnell will produce proofs
hitherto withheld of the accuracy of his
statement.
There is a rumor that Parnell has of
forred to retire voluntarily, if Gladstone
will sign a paper pledging himself to in
cluded in the next home rule bill certain
points Specified by Parnell.
The Daily Telegraph says Parnell has
sent an ultimatum to Gladstone with
the threat that unless lie received within
twenty-four hours a reply favorable to
his interests, he will reveal everything
concerning the relations between the
English radical party and himself. Glad
stone ignored it.
THE IRISH CLERGY.
Archbishops Walsh and Crobe Say Par-
neli Must Abdicate.
Dublin, Nov. 30. —Archbishop Walsh,
in an interview today, said his recent
utterances were guarded because Par
nell had not then spoken. Now, he
says, unless Parnell clears himself of the
charge of adultery, the party taking him
as their leader will not find t he support,
co-operation or confidence of the Irish
bishops. Parnell's breach of Glad
stone's contidence,|the archbishop con
sidered blamable.
Archbishop Croke, in a telegram to
McCarthy, said: "All are sorry for
Parnell; but still in God's name let him
retire quietly and with good grace from
the leadership. If he does, the party
will remain united in an honorable alli
ance with the Gladstonians, and home
rule will be certain. If he does not, the
alliance will be dissolved, home rule in
definitely postponed, coercion perpet
uated, evicted tenants hopelessly crush
ed, and public confidence outraged."
Cheers for Parnell.
Cork, Nov. 30. —Parnell was expected
to arrive here this morning, and a large
crowd gathered at the station. The
mayor and a committee of the National
league were in waiting to present him
an address of welcome and confidence,
and a thousand persons, accompanied by
bands of music, were in hue. He did
not came, aud after giving thrr j hearty
cheers for Parnell, the crowd liaj 'rsed.

THE NEW NAVY.
Secretary Tracy Issues His
Annual Report.
Ships That Sail Under Uncle
Sam's Flag.
Their Number Too Sparse to Be of
Much Account.
Harbor Defense Ships Especially Needed.
A Naval Militia Deserving of
Encouragement.
Associated Press DiSDfttches.
Washington, Nov. 30.—1n his annual
report Secretary of the Navy Tracy gives
much interesting information about the
new navy. Among the uncompleted
craft special mention is made of the
armored cruiser New York, as the vessel
in which has been attained the unusual
combination of great offensive and de
fensive power, with extraordinary coal
endurance and high speed. Her arma
ment is unequalled by any ship of the
cruiser type in the world, and it gives
her chances not to be despised should
she be driven to encounter a battle
ship. Three battle-ships now building,
one in San Francisco, are declared to be
vessels whose equal as fighting ships
does not exist today. There are others
of grcatersize, but none of greater power
or efficiency. Much space is also de
voted to tho triple-screw protected
cruisers, which have a formidable arma
ment, enormous horsepower, speed
faster than any ocean greyhound now
in existence, and coal endurance
which, with ordinary cruising time,
gives her an endurance of 103 days, or a
radius of action of 25,520 knots. Six
ships like her would exterminate the
commerce of any country under the
present conditions of commerce protec
tion.
Regarding armor, the Bethlehem
Iron company is still disappointing the
department in getting its plant com
pleted. The time now fixed ior its com
pletion is July, 1891, nearly two years
after the contract time. Another con
tract has been made with Carnegie &
Co., binding the firm to begin the de
livery of armor m June next, and deliver
SUI) tons per mouth thereafter. If both
firms come up to the expectation, it will
take two years from July, 1891, to com
plete the armor for the ships now au
thorized.
The report deals at length with ex
periments with compound nickel and
steel plate. Before entering upon its
extensive purchase, it was thought wise
to make further tests, and nickel
amounting in value to about $50,000 has
been purchased. No more will be pro
cured until complete exhaustive experi
ments demonstrate the success of the
plate beyond doubt.
In discussing ordnance matters, the
secretary particularly calls attention to
the reduction in the cost of making guns
and gun carriages, which the Washing
ton gun factory has accomplished. To
take a single instance, the government
under the old contract paid $8600 per
gun for the manufacture of 8-inch rittes,
aside from the cost of the forgings. The
Washington gun factory in 1888 manu
factured them ior $5163, and this year
for $2772.
Armor-piercing projectiles hitherto re
ceived from private firms in this coun
try, having proved unsatisfactory, a con
tract has been made for a quantity of
foreign process to be manulnctured in
tliis country, while the department will
still endeavor to bring about arrange
ments to secure satisfactory American
projectiles.
The diversity of rapid-firing guns has
led the department to look with favor
upon the plan to limit the rapid-firing
pieces to six-pounder aud one-pounder
caliber,and abandon the three-pounders
aud 47 and 37 millimeters as eoou as
practicable.
The Hotchkiss company, not having
been able yet to produce satisfactory
Howell torpedoes, arrangements have
been made with the Whitehead com
pany, whereby an American company
will shortly be enabled to supply the
navy a number of their torpedoes.
When the Hotchkiss perfect theirs they
are to bo given tests. Of torpedoes
others than automobile, the Patrick tor
pedo, electrically directed from the
shore, has undergone a successful test.
Regarding the personnel of the service,
the secretary repeats the recommenda
tion of Chief Engineer Melville and
other heads of bureaus, for an increase
of the number of officers.
Considerable .-pace ia given to naval
militia, the want of which is declared to
ho one of the most vital defects in our
system. Reference is made to the active
interest in the subject in some of the
eastern states and the Pacific coast, the
past two years, and the secretary says
all that it is needed is such action 6n
the part of congress as will put the
naval militia on the same footing as the
land militia.
The general estimates for the support
of the navy, including public works and
the marine corps, the next liscal year,
show a total of $1,352,590 less than last
year, and $150,000 less than the current
year's appropriation. The estimate
for the increase of the navy is $18,471,
--000, against $9,380,000 for last year.
The largest part of this increase, how
ever, is for payments on outstanding
contracts.
The secretary draws especial atten
tion to the necessity of most of
the vulnerable points along our coasts
for adequate protection from foreign
fleets. No land force, however resolute
or numerous, Jcould be effective. Even
when all the ships now authorized are
completed, we should not have a fight
ing chance, our line of defense being so
long and its parts bo divided and remote.
Nothing short of a force of battleships
numerous enough to be distributed in
separate fields of attack, and able to con
centrate on any threatened point within
their own field, will prove a complete
protection.
The type of ship the department sug-
N sts for harbor-defense purposes, is an
■•ged Puritan of not more than four
teen to sixteen feet draught, and with a
: rmor and armament. These
' uld be exclusively for local
purposes and have a station from which
they should never be absent. They
would stay the entrance of an
enemy until battle-ships could
ariive. This type is less ex
pensive than sea-going ships, and an
swer as no other type can the require
ments of American harbors. Further
more the movement towards the crea
tion of a naval militia would receive ad
ditional strength and encouragement.
The harbor defense ships would be the
rallying point, drill hall and naval
school tor young men who had shown an
earnestness in the organization of a na
val militia. It should be their privilege
to become the principal source of supply
for the complement of both officers and
men of their local ships, and the result
would be an addition of incalculable
strength to the naval resources of the
country. If such a plan is adopted, it is
reasonable to believe that Boston, New
York, • hiladeiphia, Bait more, New Oi
lcans, San Francisco and the cities on
Paget sound will become centers of na
val strength, instead of being as they
are today .conspicuous examples of mari
time weakness and inviting attack.
ACCIDENTALLY SHOT.
A Widow Killed While Attempting to
Prevent Bloodshed.
Dayton, Wash., Nov. 30.—Mrs. Sarah
Hester, a widow, was accidentally shot
and killed last night at her farm, about
seven miles from here, by Charles
Robinson, a farm hand. Mrs. Hester
entertained a number of friends during
the evening, among them C. C. Ander
son, formerly in her employ. After all
the guests had departed, except Ander
son, who it seems was paying his ad
dresses to Mrs. Hester, Charles Robin
son remarked that it was about bed
time. Aderson made an insulting
remark to Robinson, who then ordered
him out of the house. Anderson then
drew a revolver, and pointing the
weapon towards Robinson, pulled
the trigger, but the cap snap
ped several times, and the weapon
was not discharged. Robinson then se
cured a shotgun. At this juncture Mrs.
Hester pushed between the men, think
ing she could prevent bloodshed. The
gun, however, was discharged, and Mrs.
Hester received the full charge in her
right side. Robinson at once surrend
ered to the sheriff', but Anderson es
caped, and a posse is now looking for
him. The coroner's jury rendered a ver
dict of accidental death by thooting.
FIFTY-FIRST CONGRESS.
The Republican Regime About to Re
sume Its Last Session.
Washington, Nov. 30.—The second
session of the fifty-first congress begins
at noon tomorrow. The programme of
btisiness of the week has not yet been
determined by either house. Lodge of
Massachusetts will introduce in the
house tomorrow a bill to regulate immi
gration. It is an elaborate measure. It
excludes any person obnoxious in any
way to the existing laws, including the
alien contract labor law ; seeks to shut
ont diseased paupers, those liable to be
come a public charge, and the illiterate.
The main point is the requirement that
every immigrant shall obtain a certifi
cate from some United States consul or
diplomatic representative, without
which he cannot land in this country.
The bill is framed to secure the rigid
enforcement of its provisions.
DIED SUDDENLY.
Mayor Pond's Brnther, State Senator-
elect, is Dead.
Chico, Cal., Nov. 30.—State Senator
elect Charles L. Pond, of Butte county,
died at his home of pneumonia this
morning. His illness was not thought
serious, and it was only yesterday that
his brother, Mayor Pohdj of San" Fran
cisco, was telegraphed for. Mayor Pond
arrived this morning an hour after his
death.
Charles L. Pond was a native of New
York, aged 59, and had been here in the
mercantile business for twenty years.
He was a Republican, had held the of
fice of county treasurer and was elected
at the last election senator from Butte
county. The funeral will take place to
morrow, and the body will be taken to
Oakland for burial.

The Pine Ridge Sioux Prepared for a
Long Siege—General Brooke Re
ports All Quiet.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Omaba, Neb.. Nov. 30—A special to
the Bee, from Pine Ridge, late tonight,
says: Red Hawk and Gay Belt, agency
police, have just returned from spy work
at the camp of the hostiles in Bad
Lands. One had a horse shot from un
der him, and both were chased away
with bullets. The hostiles said they
were prepared for a last great battle,
and all were thirsting for blood.
Another special to the Bee from Pine
Ridge says: The Indian police last night
notified Agent Royer that a panic ha*d
been caused in the camp of the friendly
Indians, by an urgent invitation to join
the dancers. Royer sent an extra guard
of one hundred scouts, but In spite of
this, the Indian village melted away
during the night, and this morning over
two-thirds of the 3000 who were here
last night, had disappeared. It is learned
that the hostiles moved their camp into
the Bad Lands, and there await the
coming of the troops. Scouts say that
region is better adapted for Indian pur
poses than the lava beds in Oregon. It
is an utterly barren region of precipitous
cliffs and cations. Few white men are
acquainted with it, but the Indians
know it perfectly. The fact that it will
be possible from there to con
tinue their raids on the settlers on
the surrounding lands with impunity
constitutes the reason, according to the
coriespondent, why the troops should
pusn after the Indians now.' A scout
who brought information of the move
ment, said the hostiles had slaughtered
800 head of cattle, mostly government
property. General Brooke received a dis
patch from General Ruger, warning him
that about 1000 Cheyenne warriors are
on the way from Cheyenne reservation
to join the hostiles. This was the day
set for the appearance of the Messiah,
but he did not appear. A half-breed

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. Why didn't the
butcher know it when it came out? Simply because their
elegant suits have such a wonderfully transforming influ
ence. If you desire to test this power of transformation,
call and examine their many stylish o ods. Everything

Chicago, Nov. 30.—Adjutant-General
Williams tonight received a -telegram
from General Brooke of Pine Ridge
agency, saying there is no material
change in the. situation. The reported
depredations by Indians are not yet sub
stantiated, but parties are looking into
the matter.
General Brooke adds: " T he Indians
here are suffering for food ; I have noth
ing to give them. The proverbial im
providence of the Indians and the in
sufficiency of food, causes this."

PARNELL IS MAD.
Dr. Parker and Michael Davltt Express
Their Views.
London, Nov. 30. —Dr. Parker, in his
sermon today, said Parnell's manifesto
showed that the writer must be mad.
Michael Davitt, in an interview re
garding the declaration of the Irish
delegates in America, said tonight it
rendered Parnell's continuance in the
leadership an impossibility. Its weight
with the Irish people will be immense.
The party has come through the ordeal
with the greatest honor, and he believed
it will remain united and independent.
He believes tomorrow's decision will be
practically unanimous. A few may join
Parnell's treason. If Parnell remains in
parliament, and is hostile to the Irish
party, he will be an intolerable menace
to their efficiency and unity. Ireland to
a man will repudiate him, and Cork will
do its duty. Home rule must not be
further endangered by misplaced gener
osity towards him or those who may up
hold his effort to smash the party.
Though he has lost Ireland's confidence,
he still retains their gratitude; but if
he makes a further attempt to disturbe
the party he will be crushed.
