The Cork Examiner says Parnell's English career is closed. The Examiner thinks Parnell has overrated his ability to secure the return of men to parlia ment to take the places of the members who oppose his leadership. Parnell will be accompanied on his coming tour through Ireland by the most active of his followers. Before his departure from England for Ireland he will issue a manifesto to the people of the latter country, which will be signed by his supporters. ANXIOUS for CONCILIATION. The Freeman's Journal, in which Parnell is understood to have an inter est, advocates.on its own responsibility, without recommending a plan to either side on grounds beyond its reasonable ness, that efforts be made by the fac tions of the Irish party in the direction of conciliation and peace. It urges Dil lon and O'Brien to return from the United States to Paris forthwith, and that all the Nationalist members or del egates from each section of the party meet them in that city. TOO LATE TO STOP TIIE SECEDERS. William O'Brien sent a cable dispatch to Parnell today, appealing to him to suggest some way by which Ireland might be saved from destruction. Par nell replied: "It is now too late to res cue the seceders from their false posi tion. I shall be glad to consult with you on your arrival in Europe." parnell's movements.

B.—The anti-l'arnellite members of the commons made an early appearance in the house. Thirty-one entered the chamber in a body and took the principal places in the" first four benches below the gangway, with the view of preventing the Parnellites from occupying their usual seats. Colonel Nolan and John Deasey entered later and contrived to secure seats. Parnell's seat had also been reserved, he having at an earlier hour affixed a ticket to it. Healy arrived later than his colleagues. When he entered, he took Parnell'sseat, but McCarthy warned him to vacate it. The party appeared in excellent spirits. They cheered loudly when Deasev, an anti-Parnellite, who advanced to the speaker's chair, moved to issue a new writ for election in North Kilkenny, to fill the vacancy in tiie house caused by the death of Edward Marum. The writ waa issued. McCarthy, amid the cheering of his supporters, gave notice that upon the reassembling of the house he would call attention to the circumstances in connec tion with the recent arrest and prosecu tion of Dillon and O'Brien, and would move a resolution in relation to the case. William Henry Smith, government leader, announced that when the house went into committee on the land pur chase bill, lie would move an adjourn ment until January 2nd. Balfour moved the second reading of the Irish purchase land bill. Healy moved to adjourn the debate on the ground that the government was treating the house with contempt in not explaining the provisions of the bill. Healy's motion was defeated, and the bill passed the second reading. Parnell and all the other Irish members voted against it. Bslfour's Irißh relief bill, which asks an appropriation oi £5000 to enable him to supply seed potatoes to distressed farmerf, passed mud reading. American I.Unntock Association. Chicago, Dec. 8. -The American Live stock association oi the United States assembled this afternoon in regular an nual meeting, and elected aboard of di rectors and officers for the ensuing year. The president is H. W. Creswell. What other business was transacted, if any, waa kept a profound secret. A RAILROAD SOLD. The California and Nevada Changes Ownership. San Francisco, Dec. 8. —The Cali fornia and Nevada railroad has, it is stated, been sold. "The road is now in other hands," said Captain Smith. "I have sold all my stock. The new own ers, I will equip, extend and operate it through to Walnut Creek and beyond. They may construct and operate a ferry, unless they make a fav orable traffic contract with the Southern Pacific company. Some of the owners are eastern people and some are ndt. There is about twenty miles of track laid, and the present terminus is Orinda Park, at General Wagner's ranch. About two and a half miles of road would catch travel from Walnut Creek to Oakland, and then it would pay to run a daily train. Before further construction of the road is begun, the new owners will require that the right of way from Gen eral Wagner's to Walnut Creek be given." The Vlticnltarlsts. San Francisco, Dec. 8. -The state board of viticulture held its semi-annual meeting today. C. A. Wetmore, Cap tain Mclntire and Professor Rifling were appointed a committee to ascertain if the tables in the sweet wine bill are correct. C. A. Wetmore was continued as chief viticultural officer, and the ser vices of Ethelbert Dowlan, vine expert, were dispensed with. George West, J. De Barth Shorb and I. De Turk were ap pointed a committee to study the ques tion of the treasury regulations under the recent sweet wines regulation of congress, and to report the result of their investigations to the treasury de partment. TURNING THE TABLES. DAKOTA SETTLERS GO ON THE WARPATH. They Propose to Punish the Redskins for j Harassing Them—Four Indians Killed by a Party of Raiders. Omaha, Dec. B.—A special from Rapid City, S. D., says: A band of Indians from Little Wound's camp have been raiding the deserted ranches, killing and running off stock, burning hay and grain and stealing household goods. Today twenty armed men left Rapid City for the Indian camp. They will be joined by ranchmen, and if they are not inter cepted by troops, will attack the In dians. A special from Custer says not far from Buffalo Gap, T. M. Warren, a ranchman, with four of his men, at tacked a raiding party of Indians, and killed four. This story is not verified. The Bee's Pine Ridge special says: A I scout came in tonight and reported that no sooner had the hostile chiefs returned home from the council held yesterday, than they proceeded to move their camp several mjles deeperinto the Bad Lands, instead of counciling amove therefrom, j as advised by General Brooke. Chicago, J)ec. 8. —General Miles this morning received a telegram from Buf falo Gap, S. D., saying: "Ranchmen and Indians had a slight skirmish. Sit uation becoming serious, for the settlers are unarmed. Can you send fifty rifles and ammunition, so that settlers can defend themselves." The general will leave for the scene of the Indian troubles tomorrow. Gi'thriu, Oklahoma, Dec. 8. —Couriers arrived this afternoon, bringing informa tion that the uncivilized tribes of Chey ennes, Arapahoes and Comanches, just | west of the Oklahoma border line, are in a state of high excitement over the j ghost dance, started by runners from the Dakota Sioux. They are very threat ening, and Government Agent Steele I has asked the legislature to take imme- I diate action by which citizens can or ganize a militia company for protection. \ The craze among the tribes east of iiere has subsided. FEDERATION of labor. Delegates in Session at Detroit—Qoin- j pers's Annual Address. Detroit, Mich., Dec. 8. —Eighty dele gates of the American Federation of La- Bor assembled this morning, and were welcomed to the city by the president of the board of aldermen, in the absence of the mayor. President Gompers, of the federation, responded. Goinpers then delivered his annual address. Gompers, in his annual address, advised the convention to avoid all controversial questions, and to concentrate their efforts upon such issues as the members are most agreed upon. That such a course is best is evinced by the success of the eight hour movement. Agitation for this re form has been successful in 137 cities, and has benefited 46,000 workmen in the carpenter's trade, besides countless others in other branches of the building trade. The demand for an eight-hour day will be made by other, trades in the series, and its final success cannot be questioned. The next industry to make the demand will be the coal miners. They will begin the move May 1, 1891. During the year the federation estab lished 274 local branches, and the Nat ional Trades Union 913. The existing branches increased from 5 to 36 per cent, in memberghip. Gompers' ad dress declares in favor of a system of national unions of individual trades. During the year 1163 authorized strikes have taken place; 989 succeeded, 76 failed and 93 were compromised. Gompers refers in commendation to the project of an international labor congress in 1893, concordant with the world's fair; demands the enforcement of the eight-hour law in government work; asks for a suitable federal alien contract labor law: sug gests the extended observance of Labor day as an annual holiday ; warns against child labor, and declares for inter national copyright aud ballot reform. When the committee on credentials wont into session, Gompers appeared before them to object to receiving any papers from delegates from the Central Labor Federation (Socialistic) of New York. The committee decided to allow the Socialists to present their case to the convention tomorrow. TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER % 1890. FARMERS' FINANCES. The Alliance Adopts a Finan cial Policy. They Want the National Banks Abolished. The Establishment of a Sub-Treks ury System Advocated. Free and- Unlimited Coinage of Silver De manded—Republican Legisla tion Denounced. Associated Press Dispatches. Ocala, Fla., Dec. B.—Early in the forenoon session of the Farmers' Alli ance, the financial policy of the order came up tor discussion, under the report of the committee on legislation. It con tained the following amended demands: banks; the establishment of sub-treas uries in the several states to loan money direct to the people at a rate of interest not to exceed 2 per cent, per annum on non-perishable farm products and real estate, with a proper limitation upon the quantity of the land and the amount of money; that the amount of the cir culating medium be speedily increased to not less than fifty dollars per capita. Second—Congress shall pass laws to effectually prevent dealing in futures on all agricultural and mechanical produc tions, preserving a stringent procedure in trials to secure prompt conviction of offenders, and such penalties as shall secure the most perfect compliance with the law. Third—Condemns the silver bill re cently passed, and demands the free and unlimited coinage of silver. Fourth —Demands the passage of laws prohibiting the alien ownership of land, and that congress take prompt action to devise some plan to obtain all the lands now owned by aliens and foreign syndi cates, and that all lands held by rail roads and other corporations in excess of that actually used and needed by them, be reclaimed and held for actual settlers only. Fifth —Believing in the doctrine of equal rights to all, and special privileges to none, we demand that our national legislation be so framed in the future as not to build up one industry at the expense of another. We further demand the removal of the existing heavy tariff from the necessaries of life that the poor of our land must have. We further de mand a just and equitable system of a graduated tax on incomes. "AYe be lieve the money of the country should be kept as much as possible in the j hands of the people, and demand that j all national and state revenues be limited to the necessary expenses of the government, economically and hon- ' estly administered. Sixth —We demand the most rigid, j honest and just state and national con- i trol and supervision of the means of ! public communication and transporta- I tion, and if this control does not remove the abuses now existing, we demand | government ownership of such means of I communication and transportation. A spirited debate followed the intro- ] duction of this report. Loucks of South Dakota offered an I amendment to strike out the word ] "farm" before "products," but after a discussion it was changed to read "mer chantable" instead of "farm." Then Davie of Kentucky offered a long amendment, and speeches for and against went on for a long time. Presi dent Hall, of the Missouri alliance, de- ' dared himself uncompromisingly op- j posed to the sub-treasury plan. He said it is unconstitutional and directly opposed to the principles of the Order; it is unjust and very i extravagant, and would bring financial ruin to the fanner and all other classes of business. It would have, and is now having, the effect of j drawing the minds of the farmer and other laborers from the greatest curse of the age —class legislation. In conclu sion he said if such a step were taken it would destroy the order in Missouri in less than ninety days. Congressman-elect Simson, of Kansas, Clark, of Texas, and others favored the sub-treasury plan. Many other speeches for and against the sub-treasury scheme were made, and the vote finally taken resulted in the adoption of the above plan, 99 to 79. At the afternoon session, Wardell, of South Dakota, moved to reconsider the vote by which the alliance protested against the passage of the election bill, stating hia reason to be that the protest would retard the progress of the alliance in the north and west. On motion of Hall, of Missouri, AVar dell's motion was laid on the table, si> to 32. There was considerable excited discussion over the matter; the states j voting with Wardell were Illinois, j Texas, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylva- j nia, South and North Dakota. There i was a divided vote in the delegations | from Arkansas, Missouri, West Vir ginia, Florida and Kansas. Carr, of North Carolina, presented a memorial to congress approving and ask- Ing the passage of the Paddock pure food j bill, emphatically protesting against the j passage of what is known as the Conger I lard bill, which denounced the measuie as tending toward more taxation and unjust discrimination against the cotton seed oil of the south and beef fat of the west—sectional legislation againstwhich the industrial movement declares un- I ceasing hostility. The memorial was | unanimously adopted. At the night session a resolution was I passed urging the establishment of a postal savings bank. Just before ad journment, Buchanan of Tennessee took occasion to warmly denounce those members who had given information to press representatives, as scoundrels, liars, knaves and traitors. V After passing the customary resolu tions of thanks, the national alliance, at 1 o'clock this (Tuesday) morning ad journed. The sub-treasury bill as it now stands in congress, does not include provisions for loans on lands, but this feature does appear in the formal demand today. THE UNION PACIFIC. I S. 11. H. Clark Chosen General Manager. Other Changes. I New York, Dec. B.—At its meeting j the executive committee of the Union I Pacific today appointed S. H. H. Clark. now general manager of the Misßouri ] Pacific, as general managerof the Union I Pacific. At a later meeting of the board lof directors Clark will be elected vice- I president. H. W. Holcomb, present 1 general manager, has been made assis- I tant to Clark. Clark will retain charge lof the operating department of the Mis | souri Pacific, but will receive the help of jan assistant general manager, who haß j not yet been decided upon, j Boston, Dec. B.—Director Ames, of the , Union Pacific, says in an interview: The floating debt of the Union Pacific ! was fully explained in last year's report, jlt has been reduced in the past year by , $4,000,000, aud is now about $11,500,000. : Mr. Gould knew all about the floating j debt when he entered the directory, and 1 has discovered nothing new about it. IHe agreed to take care of it I and has provided for the January Ist i requirements, which are leas that $2, --l 000,000. Mr. Gould expressed great sat isfaction at the appearance of every i thing connected witli the property. He I has no more idea of a receivership for ; the property than I have for the Ames i building, ido not know of any scheme for funding the Union Pacific debt. We can easily pay it when the railroad bond market revives." Church and State. Rome, Dec. 8. —Cardinal Ranipolii, papal secretary of state, has written a letter in regard to Cardinal Lavigerie'a recent declarations in favor of a Jrepub lican form of government, saying the I Roman Catholic church is. not inimical |to any form of government. The church applies itself before all else to the prog ress of religion, and therefore thinks it I right for the faithful to participate in i public affairs when the action is de | nianded by the interests of religion. A SUICIDAL COURSE. THE POLICY PURSUED BY THE WESTERN ROADS. Chairman Walker Urges the Formation of a Trust That Will Make Rate Wars a Thing of the Fast. New Yobk, Dec. B.—The Journal of Finance today made public for the first time a lengthy letter recently written by Chairman Walker, of the Interstate Commerce Railway association, to vari ous railroad presidents on the general condition of railway affairs and a plan ' for reform in the present methods. He says the present legislative attitude of congress and the states is injurious, but the railroad difficulties are not wholly due to that cause. Competition, as it : now exists among the carriers, is ruin- I ous; is simply war. This situation, he says, pleases the unreflecting public and I the necessary inference is that 1 the railroads are playing their , adversaries' game. He refers Ito the fact that during the past fifteen j years about one-third of tlie railway | mileage in the United States has been I reorganized or passed through foreclos | ure proceedings. He does not believe ! that this suicidal process is beyond con trol, but says radical changes are re quired. He points out the wars in pas senger and freight rates brought about j by scalping, secret agreements, rebates, j etc., and says ninety per cent of ail the I tariff changes made arc reductions. He ! accuses them of systematic passenger - rate cutting, and calls it competition i gone mad. Such wild and reckless | methods are not in the interest of the ' public, and are ruinous to the railways. He calls on the presidents to recog j nize the essential unity of the railway ! interests, and make a new treaty based |on disarmament. He says the first few '. months of the life of the Interstate Railway Traffic association is commonly referred to as a period of comparatively successful administration among the western roads. It was really armed : neutrality. Every line maintained its I fighting force fully armed and equipped. The lines should rid themselves of their ! machinery for rate cutting, either open | or secret. The fundamental principles of the as • sociation should be the concentration of authority and unification of interests. A traffic division should control ! theactual handling of the busi ! ness. A rate division should have ex j elusive right to contract with connect j ing roads in respect to charge of busi : ness; the division of joint rates, and ! with shippers at all points out- I side of the association's terri tory. Joint agencies should re- I p ace the innumerable separate agencies now in vogue. This might be extended ultimately to competitive points upon the lines of memberß. The work of the traffic division also might very properly I embrace the clearing-house idea, under which it would receive copies of all bill ! ing, adjust accounts between companies, j settle all loss and damage claims, etc. | Under such a concentration of methods, j the danger of rate-cutting, either secret jor open, would be substantially elimin ! ated, the net revenues of every line pro tected, and the public better served, i J. Pierpont Morgan has sent a tele graphic invitation to the presidents of all the railroads west of Chicago, to ' meet at his house in this city on the I 15th inst. for the purpose of discussing j the railroad situation, with the view of j renewing the president's agreement. WBJU CONTEST THE ELECTION. Judge Blanchard Claims He Was Elected to Congress. San Francisco, Dec. 8. —Judge Blan i chard, of Placerville, late Republican | nominee for congress in the Second dis i trict, is in the £ity, in consultation with his attorneys for the purpose of eoutest ! ing the election. "I am satisfied," said he, "that I re ceived a majority of the ballots cast. There were 700 votes counted for the Prohibition nominee, who withdrew in my favor several days before the elec tion. Under the Storey system every straight Prohibition ballot was counted for him, while I have positive assurance that my name has been printed on from 300 to 400 of them, and the latter should have been counted for me. This error when rectified, would give me a clear majority of over 200, and I propose to fight it out." SAVED BY HIS STAR. A Deputy Constable's Narrow Escape. His Badge of Office Saved His Life. Nevertheless He Was Well Peppered with Shot. His Father-in-Law Did the Shooting and He Retaliated in Kind—A Fresno Fracas. Associated Press Dispatches. Fresno, Cal., Dec. 8. —An officer's star was probably the means of saving his life tonight. About 7 o'clock Al Dili wood, a deputy constable, and John Hern were engaged in a fracas, during which three shots each were fired and both parties were wounded, though it ia thought not aeriously. Dillwood mar ried a stepdaughter of Hern's, and he and his wife reside with him on Ventura street. Kern waa oppoaed to the mar riage, and an old feud has existed. Dili wood was a witness in the Freder- icks I arson, case, and Hern ac- cused him of having accepted $150 for his evidence. Hot words followed until Hern went for his shot gun, and Dillwood ran out and was pur sued by Hern, when the shooting oc curred. Hern's gun was loaded with double B shot. One of the shots hit Dillwood's star, which had the effect of badly mutilating it, while others of the same charge took effect in hia right side, but not touching the vitala. Hern tired another charge which seema to have missed its mark. When the second shot was tired. Hern was getting over a fence. Dillwood took advantage of the situation and fired three shots rapidly from his re volver, one ball passing through the left cheek of Hern. Dillwood ran down the street. Hern sending another charge after him, having reloaded his gun. Several shot took effect in Dillwood's back, but did not inflict serious wounds. Dillwood is a brother of O. H. Dili wood, who was convicted, Saturday, of stealing a calf. Herr was convicted of killing a man named Schwartz, at Cen treville, ten years ago. and served a term at San Quentin. He has recently been indicted for stealing a threshing machine, at Sanger. Dr. Fredericks, convicted of arson, was sentenced today to ten yeara at San Quentin. Peter Dempsey, a cousin of Jack Dempsey, the prize fighter, while en deavoring to save Mary Allen, a pretty 16-year-old girl from a criminal assault by two Poles, in Brooklyn, was probably fatally stabbed. His assailants were ar rested. Where Did Yob Get That Coat? 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.
