The National League Machinery tin t der Parnell's Control. The McCarthyites in the Majority and Backed by the Clergy but Other wise Handicapped. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Dec. 7. —The conferen.-.e of the McCarthy party was prolonged until after midnight last night. McCarthy presided throughout the session. A ommitteo consisting of Murphy, Barry, Morrough, Healy, Sexton and Power was appointed to draft a prospectus for a limited company to establish a daily newspaper in Ireland, to be devoted to the interests of the Nationalist patty. Harry Webb, treasurer of the new com pany, opened a list, and the members present subscribed £1020. It is proba ble that United Ireland will become a daily publication. The majority of the party were keenly alive to the disad vantage of the leading Nationalist papers siding with Parnell, and the whole of the machinery of the National League being under his control. They are hopeful, however, that the influence of the bishops and priests will assist them to obtain a popular verdict. Both sides are preparing for an animated campaign in Ireland. A PASTORAL LETTER. A letter from the archbishops and bishops was read in all the Catholic churches in Ireland, after the celebra tion of masses today. At St. Colman's cathedral, Queenstown, after the letter had been read, Rev. Father Fisk ad dressed tlie congregation. He declared that it was no longer possible for Parnell to remain at the head of the Irish party. He had disgraced, dishonored and de graded himself by his own acts, and could not lead the smallest section of the Irish people. In refusing to recog nize the authority of the bishops, Par nell was doiug incalculable mischief to the Irish cause; was performing the work of tlie enemy, and rendering the people disunited and distracted. M'CARTHY ISSUES A CIRCULAR. McCarthy has addressed a circular to all the Irish members of parliament, in cluding Parnell, calling a meeting of the E arty at 2 o'clock tomorrow. The first usiness to come before the meeting will be the election, by ballot, of a consulta tion committee ot eight members. The party are discussing the advisability of Dillon and O'Brien returning by way of France, where a convention could be held, at which the advice of the envoys could be obtained before their arrest. Gilhooly, P. O'Brien, Carew and Malum are still classed with the doubtfuls. The strength therefore of the McCarthyites is fifty, and that of the Parnellites thirty-one. HEALY BURNED IN EFFIGY. Dublin, Dec. 7. —No reference was made to Parnell in any of the churches here today. A meeting of Nationalists was held today in Phuuiix park. The attendance was only moderate, owing to the bitterly cold weather. The lord mayor who presided moved a resolution that Parnell alone was fitted to lead the nation. He condemned the Healyites whose independence and intensity, he said, had been snapped by the English wire-pullers. He called on Parnell under no circumstances to aban don hif posi'-ion. Gladstone, he said, was still humbugging Ireland. When Sexton, Healy, Dillon and O'Brien were dining with Gladstone, they were per haps selling the Irish cause. The sweet breads and nice dishes overcome them. He challenged Parnell's opponents, whom he characterized as political lepers, to come to Ireland and see how they would be served. The resolution carried unanimously; also a vote of thanks to those who supported Parnell. The crowd burned an effigy of Healy and kicked the remains about the park amid shouts of derision ; otherwise the meeting was orderly. THE AMERICAN ENVOYS. New York, Dec. 7.—O'Brien, Sullivan, O'Connor and Gill, Irish envoys to America, have arrived in this city from Chicago. Harrington, who decided to cast his lot with Parnell, did not accom pany them. T. P. O'Connor went to the Bartholin hotel, where he has friends, while the other four put up at the Hoff man house. They took the finest suit of rooms in the house on the first floor. They refused to be interviewed, but all signed the following statement for the press: " We regret to be obliged to continue to maintain absolute silence on the cir cumstances of the present movement. We have cabled our approval to the choice of Justin McCarthy as chairman of the Irish National party, and our earnest hope is that our colleagues and our people may see a way to acquiesce in the choice and restore 'the priceless blessing of unity in our party. Whatever addi tional communication we may find our selvee at liberty to make to the public will be made collectively, and not be made so long as we can see any possi bility of saving our country from a ruin ous conflict. We would prefer that our views should suffer by our holding our tongues rather than the possibility that unity should be prejudiced by a single injudicious worn at this painful mo ment." A GAME OF CRAPS. The Cause of a Cold- Blooded Murder aud Lynching;. Greenwood, Miss., Dec. 7.—At Roe buck landing, Yazoo river, Dennis Mar tin, in company with other negroes, en gaged in a game of craps, close to the store of Mr Aron, a prominent citizen and wealthy i lantation owner.

Denver, Dec. 7. —A special from El Paso, Tex., to the Republican says: The bull tights this afternoon at Juarez, Mexico, were viewed by an immense crowd.

THE FUTURITY COLT, A Rumor That Senator Hearst Will Bid High for Potomac. New York, Dec. 7. —Albert Cooper, Senator Hearst's colored trainer, now here, is dubious regarding the truth of the report now in circulation among racing men that the senator intends to bid high for Potomac at the approach ing sale of the Belmont stud. "I don't know why the senator should want to buy Potomac, when we already have a j better colt in our stables," he said to a tribune reporter. "You mean Yosemite." "Exactly," said Cooper, "He is, in my opinion, j good enough to hold his own with the best two-year-old that can be brought j against him. Of course Senator Hearst i may decide to buy him, but I think the colt, in spite of his Futurity victory, is not worth anything like the extrava gant prices that are likely to be offered for him." Steamships in Collision. New York, Dec. 7.—The French steamship La Champagne, which sailed from this port for Havre at noon Satur day, returned to her dock at the foot of Morton street at noon today, having besn in collision with the freight steamer Lisbonez, early this morning, bound for Brooklyn from Rio Janeiro.

SENSIBLE FARMERS. j Democratic Doctrine Is Good Enough for Them. The Alliance Adopts a Demo cratic Platform. The Convention at Ocala Making Splendid Progress. Washington Appointed as the Next Place of Meeting, but the Westerners Object. Associated Press Dispatches. | Ocala, Dec. 7.—While the National i Farmers' Alliance delegates have been [ resting more or less today, after the la j bors of the past five days, still there has j been a large amount of committee work [ going on, and many important confer- I ences have been held. All this will fa ! cilitate convention work tomorrow, and it is predicted more real business will be done than during all the previous ses sions put together. Before adjournment last night, Washington, D. C, was decided upon as the place, and the third Tuesday in November as the time, I for holding the next annual meeting of } the National Alliance. Strong efforts, lit is said, will be made tomorrow to re voke this action, and make Indianapolis the place, with a considerable hope of success. Prejudice against Washington has been excited by the westerners here. The opinion is gaining ground that i the national leaders of the Democratic party have many lobbyists here in their | interests, and that the policy of the I alliance in many respects will be influ ; enced by them, notably in the case |of the sub-treasury bill. That ! measure is now under consideration :by the National Alliance, and has i been for several days past. It is pre ; dieted that when it finally comes from tlie committee it will have been modi fied and changed in many important particulars with the view of making it accord with the Democratic doctrine to such an extent that it can easily be adopted by the national Democratic con vention in 1892, or perhaps be passed by I congress prior to tnat event, with some slight changes and modifications. The Alliance's Ocala platform could, it is predicted, secure absolute adoption by the national Democratic convention, and this with the indorsement of the modified sub-treasury bill would place the Democratic party squarely | upon the Farmers' Alliance platform", j Iv this way it would gain the support of j the entire Alliance and Democratic votes , throughout the country. There was a Citizens' Alliance formed here today for the purpose of establish ing Citizens' Alliances in the cities and large towns of the country. It organized with J. D. Holden, of Kansas, president; Ralph Beaumont, of New York, secre tary ;S. P. Wild, of Washington, D. C, treasurer. These officers also constitute its executive committee. It will at once establish national headquar ters at Washington, and as it increases its executive membership will be en larged to include one from each state in the organization. This body is the out growth of the Citizens' Alliance move ment in Kansas and other western states. As these local citizens' alliances are in creased, the national body will be made up of prominent residents of cities, irre spective of their trades or professions. SPEEDY JUSTICE.

It Is Not Likely to Be Under the Present System. General Miles's Policy Is to Disarm the Redskins. Indians Stealing Horses and Robbing Hous3s—Six Thousand Soldiers in the Field. Associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, Dec. 7.—General Miles said today: "Generals Ruger and Brooke have been doing all they can to put the small number of available troops in a position to be useful, and so far as pos sible are staying the threatened cyclone ; yet the end of the Indian troubles is by no means immediately at hand. No other civilized country on the face of the earth would tolerate many thousands of armed savages scattered through differ ent states and territories. The people of Texas.Western Kansas, Nebraska, North and South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Eastern Washington, Idaho, Arizona and New Mexico are seriously interested in this subject. AVhile the fire may be suppressed in one place, it will be still smouldering and liable to break out at other places where least ex pected, under the present system." Advices from the Indian country re ceived at army headquarters tonight show that everything is quiet. Several regiments are expected at Rosebud agency and other stations in the country tomorrow. There are already nearly 0000 soldiers in that locality, under com mand of General Brooke. It is the gen eral belief that when General Miles reaches the Indian country his policy will be to immediately disarm every In dian found with a gun. St. Paul, Dec. 7. —A Pine Ridge spe cial to the Pioneer Press says : Reliable information was received here today that the Indians are stealing horses and robbing houses north of the Cheyenne river.

Where Did h Get lat Coat? i ■ It is perfectly right for a man to ask Such a question as that, and to take to task A man so wretchedly clad. No wonder his indignation rose, When he looked at that shocking suit of clothes; 'Twas enough to make him mad. While it might be a little' difficult to guess where such miserable attire came from, it is not at all hard to find out where it did not come from. Such a suit as that was never purchased and never sold at the store of THE LONDON CLOTHING COMPANY. They keep only such clothing as will make a man presentable wherever he may go, and you can depend on it their prices are right. They have the best stock of RUBBER CLOTHING in the city. Cor.
