McCarthy Awaiting the Arrival of O'Brien in France. Parnell Also En Route to a Conference with His Former Colleague and Friend. Associated Press Dispatches. Dublin, Dec. 24.—At a meeting of Mc- Carthyites committee today, Davitt de nied that the priests had used intim idating tactics in North Kilkenny. Healy said the league funds in Ireland were overdrawn to the extent of X2OOO, as the bulk of the money was locked up in Paris. Healy added that a compro mise arrangement between Parnell and his opponents waa out of the question, and that the latter would light to beat Parnell on every platform. Healy also said had Scully won, he would have been unseated, owing to bribery and corruption by his political agents who expended in the campaign JEIOOO more than the legal allowance. Healy declared his bslief that secret service money had been spent in Kil kenny to widen the split in the Irish party. KILKENNY IS NOT IRELAND. United Ireland, referring to the elec tion in North Kilkenny, says: Kilkenny has declared for Gladstone against Par nell. The battle was fought with every weapon that hatred, malice, ingratitude ami treachery could supply. Behind the mutineers were the priests, eager to re gain the power Parnell secured for Ire land ten years ago. They sanctioned methods of warfare hitherto unused, and open* fighting was supplemented by secret intimidation ; but although this combination secured a victory in Kil kenny, it must be remembered that Kil kenny is not Ireland. They shall be forced to renew the battle at every spot on Irish soil from center to sea. PARNELL GOES TO PARIS. The Freeman's Journal saya Parnell starts for Paris tonight to meet hia trusty lieutenant, William O'Brien. Parnell, according to the Journal, refuses to be lieve that the friendly conference be tween O'Brien and himself will be bar ren of results, until they have definitely failed to establish a modus vivendi. HE WILL STAY IN THE FIGHT. Parnell said today that he would go from here to Paris to offer his congratu lations to O'Brien on the success of the latter's mission to America. In regard to himself, he said he would not recede one inch from his position. After his return from France, he proposes to re sume the campaign, beginning at Lim erick. M'CARTHY IN FRANCE. Boulogne, Dec. 24. —Justin McCarthy arrived yesterday. Regarding the elec tions in Kilkenny, he says the result surprised his expectations, its decisive character being accentuated by the fact that Scully's votes included at least 400 to 000 conservatives, making the total of the Pilrnellite strength only one quarter of the total poll. McCarthy said he be lieves the defeat of Scully will have the effect of disorganizing the opposition, and will induce many waverers to come out against I'arnell. RECONCILIATION IMPOSSIBLE. In an interview today Justin McCarthy declared that his idea in coming here was to inform O'Brien fully in regard to the recent eventß in Ireland. McCarthy said he believed, in view of I'arnell's declaration after the Kilkenny elections, that all ideas of reconciliation between the two factions must be abandoned. Even negotiations were hardly possible, he added, aB no basis for the settlement of the dispute existed, I'arnell having refused to accept the result of the Kil kenny election, and declined to abandon the leadership. "The Nationalists," added McCarthy, "will never consent to Parnell's retention of the leadership. Some of the Parnellites are lukewarm in their adherence, and only stick to Parnell through a feeling of chivalry. It is likely some will join O'Brien when his decision is known." McCarthy spurned the idea that O'Brien would join the Parnell party without openly declaring himself. THE VATICAN PLEASED. Rome, Dec. 24. —It is announced on good authority that the victory of Hen nessy over Scully, at the election in North Kilkenny, ia undoubtedly wel comed at the Vatican. It is also under stood that the pope approves the atti tude assumed by the Irish bishops and priests. The pope, however, will not mlerfere in Irish politics, having de cided to maintain his usual attitude of reserve. DILLON MORE THAN SATISFIED. New Yoke, Dec. 24.—Said Dillon this morning: "I am more than satisfied with the majority in the Kilkenny elec tion. I am much surprised that the vote was so large." SCOTL,ANI> MITItNING. ' The Strike of Railway Employees In creases in Extent and Ititterness. GLASGOW, Dec. 24.—There are no signs of improvement in connection with the railroad strike. It is estimated that about 7500 men are now out. On the North British lines, traffic is suspended, while others are working irrregularly. The price of coal has already advanced seven shillings per ton. It is said a gas famine is imminent. All the ship-build ing yards and public works are without coal, and they expect to close their doors unless the strike ia settled within a short time.

At a meeting of the board of directois of the North British Railway company, it was determined to prosecute tbe strik THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 1890—TWELVE PAGES. ers to obtain redress for what they call unwarranted interference with business. The North British directors have also re solved to completely close their railroad lines, rather than yield. The strikers were enraged by the announcement made today 'that the railroad officials refuse to pay the strikers any portion of the wages now due them. This action, according to the railroad officials, was taken upon legal advice, pending a de cision from the courts as to the validity of the contracts existing between the company and its employees. The North British company has en tirely closed its underground station here. Placards announcing promotion and advanced pay for men loyal to the company are posted conspicuously. The strikers, however, maintain a defiant at titude. The loss to the railway compa nies will be enormous. The strikers have issued a manifesto demanding ten liours a day, and 50 per cent, extra pay for Sunday work. It is estimated that 9000 personsare now out. Work at most of the coal pits in Lanark shire is stopped in consequence of the strike. Edinburgh, Dec. 24.—A mass meeting of railroad strikers w:is held here today. It was resolved to continue the struggle until their demands were granted. A rOLITICAL CORFSE. Itoulanger Is Dead Says One of Ills Old Supporters, Paris, Dec. 24. —Boulanger was a sub ject of interest and discussion in the chamber of deputies yesterday. A. year ago, at an election in one constituency ol Mont Martre, Boulanger headed the poll. His votes, however, were reject ed, and the seat awarded to Jofferfn. The latter died a month ago, and an election was ordered. Boulanger sent a manifesto, advising his partisans to re main neutral at the election on the ground that he was the rightful mem ber. There were many candidates, and none received tlie requisite majority. Another election was held soon after, Boulanger repeating his manifesto, but at this time Levy was elected. Boulan ger's friends then determined to press his old claim to the seat before the chamber. This was done yesterday, and it was rejected. The feature of the debate was a speech of Laguerre, for merly an anient supporter of Boulan ger. He said he voted against the claim of his old leader from motives of public policy. Boulanger was dead, and the sooner this fact was recognized, the better for the country. REVOLUTION IN PERU. REBELLION RIFE IN THE ANDES REPUBLIC. Tho First Outbreak Suppressed at the Cost of Forty Lives—Extreme Destitu tion Throughout the Country. Panama, Dec. 24.—Rumora of revolu tionary movements in Peru have been rife here for some time past, and it is known that on the 2d instant a meeting was held in Fort Santa Catalina, outside of Lima, and that an effort was made in behalf of ex-Dictator Pirola. The move ment was suppressedjbut at the cost of forty lives. As matters stand in Peru, it is not un likely that similar risings will occur at short intervals, the conditions being en tirely favorable. The extreme destitution prevailing throughout the republic is largely re sponsible for the unsettled state of affairs. WANTED IN ENGLAND. A Portland Man Charged With Forging a Will. Portland, Ore., Dec. 24.—Captain William McDonald was arrested here this evening on the charge of forgery.

BEYOND THE ROCKIES A Detroit Doctor's Cure for Consumption. He Sees Koch and Goes Him One Better. A Triple Tragedy in St. Paul on Christmas Morn. Terrible Riot at a Negro Christmas Fes tival—A White Christmas in Kansas. Associated Press Dispulches. Chicago, Dec. 24. —A consumption cure, invented by Dr, Shirley of Detroit, is attracting much attention among phy sicians. Dr. Ingalls of this city has in oculated several patients with it in the past two days. In an interview tonight, he said no immediate effects are pro duced in this treatment, but Dr. Shirley haa dismissed several of his Detroit patients, apparently cured after four months. The remedy consists cf hypo dermic injections of a solution of chlo ride of gold and soda, or a solution of codine. These drugs have long been used for consumption, but never in this way before. The cure ia a blood cure, and of course takes some weeks to have any effect. The remedy is injected much as the Koch lymph is, but its nature and effect are very different. It is an alternate,and does not, like the lymph,attack and des troy the diseased tissues. Its effect is to change the nutrition of the tissue, not destroy it. It is therefore much milder than the lymph, and its use is attended with no languor. MICKEL'S MIGHT CAP. A Triple Tragedy iv St. Paul on Christ mas Morn. St. Paul, Dec. 25.—At 1 o'clock this (Christmas) morning a triple tragedy oc curred at the corner of Tenth and St. Peter streets. Emma McLeod was shot and killed; her mother. Mrs. Silas Mickel, had her throat cut and is dying. Mrs. Mickel told a police man that her husband committed the deed. Further investigation revealed the dead body of Mickel himself, with two revolvers and a bullet hole, showing how he died. There is something of a question as to who committed the trage dy, Mickel or his wife, but it was proba bly the former. Later.—lt has been learned that Mickel came home drunk, and called up his wife and stepdaughter to have a "night cap" with him. They both ex pressed indignation, and refused to drink with him, whereupon he shot the young girl in the face. She ran out of the house and fell dead uprm the sidewalk. The wife also ran out, but was followed by the husband, who shot her in the abdomen and then cut her throat. She is now at the hospital dying. Mickel then walked into th* kitchen, placed a revolver to his ear and blew out his brains. A WHITK CHRISTMAS. Kamai Gets a Covering of the Beantlful When Kadly Wanted.

A HAPPY EHHUR. Illegal Prohibition liallots Make Con necticut Democratic. New Haven, Ct., Dec. 24.—Intelli gence of importance, as bearing on the contested governorship, haH just been received here. It is a decision of Judge Hall, Republican, in a cane at East Lyme. He decides that a pas ter put on a blank space un der the title "Judge of probate" in the Prohibition state ticket, makes the ballot illegal under' the state ballot law. In almost all. the Prohibition ballots in this state, the judge of probate candidacy was left blank, and the name written in for each probate district. Under Judge Hall's ruling this would throw out some 3500 Prohibition ballots in the state, and elect Morris, (Democrat) by a large majority. Judge Hall's decision is the more significant, as it gave the Democrat candidates office in the East Lyme district. BASEBALL BOODLE. SAN FRANCISCO PLAYERS SMELL , IT AFAR OFF. They Pack Their Grips Hastily and Strike for Southern California, Notably Los Angeles, Where People Have Money. San Francisco, Dec. 25. —Soon after the baseball season came to a close, the California players who returned to the coast from their season with eastern league clubs, arranged with the local players to play a series of Sunday games here during the winter. Some of the members of the league clubs went south to play ball in Los Angeles and San Diego; others remained here to play with the All-Californias, and for the past three Sundays the games at Paige street have been well attended. However, news was received at baseball head quarters here that the league players who went south were coining money, and that at San Diego crowds of 8000 and 10,000 were turning out to see the games. The news created a sensation, and the local players hurriedly packed their grip-sacks today and boarded the train for lajs Angeles. The team is composed of Coughlin and Knell, pitchers; Stevens, catcher; Doolev,tirst base; McDonald, second base; Wilson, third base; Ebright, shortstop; Levy, left field ; Sweeney, center field ; O'Day, right field.

GILLEN'S SAD PLIGHT A Distressing Tale of Absolute Need Related to the Police Yesterday. Yesterday afternoon a young woman of prepossessing appearance called at the police station, and stated that her name was Mrs. Anna Qlllen, and that she resided at Mrs. Carberry's lodging house, No. 122, l a Snuth Broadway. For time past her bus band lias been out of employment, and failing in his efforts to get work in Los Angeles, he determined about ten days ago to strike out into the country in search of a job, telling her to keep up her courage, as he would keep going un til he found something to do. Since that time, however, she had not even heard of or from him, and when the last 01 the few dollars he left behind him had been expended for the necessaries of life for herself and two children, the eldest ot which is only eighteen months old, she was at her" wits end. In order to defray her board bill the poor woman pledged her trunk, containing her entire wardrobe, hoping that her husband would return or write to her. Now, however, the small sum she raised by this means has been spent also, and she litids herself penniless and almost without a change of raiment, with two small children dependent upon her for their daily bread, which she by a relent less chain of circumstances is forced to deny them. All she asked was tempo rary relief until her husband returned or wrote to her. Her immediate neces sities were supplied, and she was re ferred to the Ladies' Benevolent society, to which the case must surely commend itself at this season of "peace on earth, good will toward men." The directors of twelve railroads in Southern Kansas, controlled by Gould, hatfe voted to consolidate the twelve un der the name of the Kansas, Colorado and Pacific. FOREIGN FLASHES. The French chamber of deputies, by a vote of 300 to 20, adopted the budget with all the senate's modifications.
