Less Bitterness Shown in His Ke- marks than Heretofore. Harrington iB Conservative in His Utter ances But Remains Loyal to His Old Leader. Associated Press Dispatches. Kilkenny, Dec. 21. —Farnell and Scul ly, the Parnellite candidate for parlia ment, left here at noon for Clare. They were accompanied by long processions oi oars filled with Parnell's supporters. Upon the arrival at Clare, tho Pariiell ites found a meeting proceeding oppo site the Catholic chapel, in support of Sir John Pope Ilennessy. When Parnell reached the crowd, a priest, Father Walsh, addressing Parnell, said: "These are chapel grounds. You must nut speak here." A local farmer here interrupted, say ing the grounds did not belong to the chapel, and that Parnell had a perfect right to speak there. Parnell said ar rangements had been made to hold a meeting in the field, and it must pro ceed. Father Walsh then requested everybody on his side to leave with him, and some few persons followed the priest and Sir Thomas Esmond, who was also present. The meeting was then organized, and Parnell made an ad dress. He said although his party did not have all the clergy on his side, he had no harsh word for any of them. After some further remarks Parnell concluded his speech, and leaving Clare, accompa nied by Scully, drove six miles to John's Well, where another meeting was held. Parnell reminded the electors that they had to deal with English statecraft, which was watching to seize every point of vantage ground that Irishmen surren dered. It was not for a big board of guardians that Ireland contended; it was a parliament that would satisfy the aspirations of the people. To achieve this the people must stand by their leader, and not leave Ireland to the in capable persoiiß who were trying to step into his shoes. The men opposing him were not elected to sit in judgment upon him. Until Ireland gave him his dis missal, he would regard himself as its commanding officer, carrying the na tional banner through the ranks of its foes. Parnell returned to Kilkenny this evening, and a meeting of Parnellites was held outside Parnell's hotel here at !» o'clock. Parnell addressed the gath ering. Parnell goes to Avondale after the election in Kilkenny, and will proceed thence to Paris to confer with O'Brien. Davitt made addresses at Goesbridge and Uowran today. HARRINGTON'S HARANGUES. He Takes a Conservative Course on the Side <>r Parnell. DUBLIN, Dec. 21.—Timothy Harrington arrived last night in Cork, in company with the mayor of that city. The Par neilites had intended to greet him when he landed from the Aurania in Queens town, and had organized a torchlight procession in his honor. They missed being present on the steamer's arrival, but nevertheless made a demonstration. Finally a body of anti-Parnellites j charged upon the paraders and routed them, throwing their torches into the harbor. Several people were hurt. Harrington holds that the majority of i the Irish in America are for Parnell, although he says most of the daily papers and leading politicians are against him. Harrington at Queenstown said he believed if O'Brien had been at home, or if Parnell had seen his way to retire in accordance with the wishes of the majority,, tho present disastrous crisis would have been avoided. He supposed, however, that Parnell had good reasons for the course he had adopted. Harrington further said he regretted the personalities in which both sides indulged. He was surprised that Par nell had descended to the use of scurrilous language, and had applied offensive epithets to his late colleagues. The unfortunate split in the party, he said, had frustrated the object of the American mission, which it would be useless to renew at present, for while Irishmen were in their present bewildered state, they would refuse to listen to the appeals of either party. Speaking at Cork, when the mayor presented an address to him, Harrington contended that whether or not Parnell's action was right, those whojafter re electing him leader, sought to oust him, forfeited the confidence of the Irish peo ple. The English democracy, he de clared, would support home rule, and it was only necessary to bring to the scratch the English politicians who would likely betray them if disappointed in getting places after the general elec tion. Parnell was not a mere political leader, but rather the general of the country leading his army to freedom. However, men might shake their heads in tho family circle, this was not tiie time to desert him, and with him Irish independence which was more valuable than Gladstone's good intention. The question of public morality was settled at Leinster hall, and the seceders pos sessed no programme or plan justifying their desertion of their leader. GLADSTONE TO PEEL. The Anti-Parnellites Recognized as the True Irish Tarty. Lonoon, Dec. 21. —Mr. Gladstone, in his letter to Sir Robert Feel's grandson (Speaker Peel's son), who is the home rule candidate in the Marylebone dis trict, says: "For the first time since the commencement In parliament of the struggle by O'Connell, the Irish party, bent on a constitutional and effective scheme of home rule, iB looking to Great Britain to pronounce judgment. In the contest between it and the minority of the seceders under Parnell, the Liberals of Great Britain, who, themselves, since 1880, have had to resist and overcome a similar secession, will not doubt which side they are to recognize with the name and true title of the Irish party, with its honorable tradition of resistance to wrong. Assuredly you enter the field at a moment of extreme interest, when the cause of wisdom, justice and freedom has claims upon all who love it, en hanced beyond the ordinary standard." THK JAILOR JAILED Twelve Prisoners Make Their Escape at Olympla, Wash, Olympia, Wash., Dec. 21. —Twelve prisoners confined in the county jail escaped this afternoon. Jailor Readly, 74 years of age, was seized and locked in a cell, lie was ascending the steps into the second story of the jail, where the prisoners are confined, and was fol lowed by several of the prisoners, who pushed a door open, seized him by the throat and took his pistol and "keys. The? prisoners then had no difficulty in escaping. All the jailor remembers of the affair, is that he was thrown into a cell. Car Shops lSnrned. Chicago, Dec. 21. —The paint shop aud repair shop of the Illinois Central railroad were entirely destroyed by fire tonight. In the first building wero six teen passenger coaches, worth $3600 apiece, and in the repair shop wero four coaches nearly completed, also valued at $3500 apiece.

Pi'.Kseo'iT, Ariz., Dec. 21. —The jury in the case of John Chart, charged with the murder of George Johnson in Sep tember last, failed to agree, and were discharged iast night. They stood six for conviction to six for acquittal. The case will now go over for re-trial until February. An order of the court was issued this evening admitting Chart to bail in $5000, which he will give. A TURN OF THE SCALES. LOS ANGELES AT LAST WINS A BALL GAME. S;in Diego Baaten 14 to 10-Goldie Re ceives One of Darby's Curves in the Temple With Nearly Fatal Results. San Dusgo, Dec. 21. —A turn of the scaleß in favor of Los Angeles, after four successive defeats at the hands of the San Diego club, gave the former club today's game, by a score of 14 to 10. The batteries were Carsey and Loh inan, for Lob Angeles ; Darby and Dun gan, for San Diego. Los Angeles hit Darby hard, especially in the first, when they piled up seven runs, live earned. In the second San Diego nearly over took them, making six, but they were unable to score any more until the ninth, when they scored four. By that time, however, Ijob Angeles had too big a lead for the locals to overcome. In the fourth Goldie, nt the bat, re ceived a pitched ball in the temple, which knocked him out as effectually aa a Sullivan undercut, nnd for a time it was thought he was seriously hurt. He recovered consciousness in a few min utes, and is apparently none the worse for Darby's speed. SCORE BY INNINGS : San Diego 0 6 0 0 0 0 0 0 4—lo Los Angeles 7 O 0 0 3 1 3 Ox—l 4 AT SAN FRANCISCO. San Francisco, Dec. 21.—The AU-Cal ifornians and a local picked nine played an interesting game here today, the vis itors winning by a score of 3 to 1. THE INDIAN TROUBLE.

MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 22, 1890. BEYOND THE ROCKIES Congress Not Expected to Do Much This Week. Train Wreckers and Their Dia- bolical Work. Faster Succi Is Now Going to the Other Extreme. A Jealous Old Man's Horrible Crime. A Terrible Tragedy Over a Same of Cards. Associated press Dispatches. Washington, Dec. 21.—1t is unlikely that any positive legislation will be achieved by congress this week, and fail ure to take the usual holiday recess, is not expected to result in any nieasurea ble advancement of public business. In the senate the elections bill will probably consume the first three days of the week. The possibilities of an inter ruption hinge altogether upon the result of tho negotiations now in progress among the RepnbHeaii senators upon the subject of the caucus financial bill, if an harmonious understanding to sup port this measure is reached, the elec tions bill may be laid aside in its favor, and the discussion in the senate will turn on financial matters until the day before Christmas, when it is expected a recess will be taken until Monday. It is probable that successive adjourn ments for two or three days at a time will mark the oourseof the house during the Christmas Holiday season. No busi ness of importance is expected to be done, as so many members have left Washington for home that a quorum can hardly be secured. Monday is Dis trict of Columbia day, and the house will probably pass upon local legislation Until some measure is proposed upon which a vote is demanded,"and an ab sent quorum thereby disclosed. Such other days in the week as the house is in session will probably be devoted to comparatively unimportant measures. TK AJN-WR XC X Kits' WOK K.

The Ilenowned Faster Gorges Himself « for Two Hours. New York, Dec. 21.—When Signor Succi arose from his sleep today, after the long slumber he fell into soon after his feat ended last night, an elaborate meal was placed before him.

Succi occupied two hours in consuming his food. He never faltered, but ate with a zest that puzzled even George Francis Train, who was present.
