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
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

evening, and a meeting of Parnellites
was held outside Parnell's hotel here at

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.
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."
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. The fire was stopped just
before a building containing over $150,000
worth of patterns was reached. The
total loss is estimated at $25,000.
Failed to Agree.
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.
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.

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.
Two Dastardly Deeds With Fatal Con
sequences—Lynching In Prospect.
Lincoln, Neb., Dec. 21. —A Union Pa
cific passenger train was wrecked a few
miles from Beatrice, this morning. An
obstruction, evidently placed out of
malice, caused the engine to jump the
track, carrying with it the tender and
mail-car. Bridge Inspector W. H.
Mercer, who was riding on the engine,
was fatally scalded, and the engineer
seriously injured. The engine and ten*-'
der were totally wrecked. The obstruc

impossible to see it in time to check the
Woodville, Miss..Dec. 21. —Road in as
ler Bryant, who was in the pay-train,
on the New Orleans and Texas road,
which was wrecked last night by Doc
Bradford, for the purpose of robbery, is
probably fatally injured, while two or
three others of the crew were seriously
hurt. Sheriff Lewis has placed an addi
tional guard at the jail, as rumors are
afloat that Bradford will be lynched,
should Bryant die. The safe contained
about $40,000.
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. He ate,with
extraordinary relish, chicken soup, fried
smelts, fried calves' brains, quail on
toast, fruit, confections, ice cream, cof
fee, and a pint each of Barol's extract
and grand sec. 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. Julian Hawthorne and the
poet Stephen Massett were also present
when the faster dined. At the conclu
sion of the meal Succi was presented
with a handsome toothpick, and soon
thereafter retired for a nap, preparatory
to a trip to Boston, where he goes to ex
hibit at a museum.
