PAMTCLL INTERVIEWED On lb* Irish Situation-He Dom not Con |d?mn Beolatenco. London, April 26.?Mr. Parnell, Ii conversing with on American corres pondent on the Irish situation, said tha the Irish people are bound to diaobe; the illegal coercion law, holding tha such laws can have no moral sanction As to the prospects of some immediate change, Mr. Parnell is not sanguine. H< says: "From all the indications affordot by the eActions it is evident that at th< next general election, those electors wh( abstained from voting in 1888, and there by returned the Tory Government witl a hundred majority, will, in the main, vote to restore Mr. Gladstone to powei with about a similar majority. But as to when the opportunity of a general election will come is a question. The time is only just approaching in which it will be poasiblo to teat the cohesion of the Liberal-Unionists to their Tory allies. "The government are rather prematurely pluming themselves on the unopposed second reading of the Local Government bill. This measure depends on a multitude 01 details, ana tne oauie Sxmnd of these will be in committee. ut whether or not wo succeed in upsetting the government this year over the Local Government bill or some other question, it must be remembered that the final result of the restoration of a Parliament to Ireland is assured beyond a doubt. For an event of such magnitude. which has now become the certain pacific prospect of a year or two, wo can surely afford to have a little patience. Although the pause may seem to be long, it is essential and valuable. "I have said a period of waiting was an advantage to us. It is educating and will educate the people of Great Britain. Men who in 1885 followed Mr. Gladstone in his great measure from belief in the man, now iollow him as well from belief in the cause. In Ulster this improvement is noticeable. I believe from all I hear that if an election were to tako place now, we should make a net gain of three members there. "Churchill's speech on the Irish County Councils bill was ono of the most important of the session. and certainly the aOftst ho has ever delivered on any subject. His foreshadowing of grave disaster to the Tory party at the polls if a general election, perhaps close at hand, arrived, produced a tremendous sensation, and seemed most ominous. In fact the speech was undoubtedly the hardest blow this Government has yet received, and it will have far-reaching results in the country. These results, towards which n von in aro Hhnnintr. mtint be in our favor. Let us wait alertly, but still in patience, and see what they are." The Emperor** Condition. Londox, April 26.?Dr. MacKenzie telegraphs to the British Medical Journal as follows: The Emperor yesterday took some solid food and enjoyed it. His maximum temperature during the night was 102. At mid-day to-day his temperature was 99.03. The discharge of pus is less, though rather thicker.

It U Certain that n Settlement will not be Made Until Fall. There will be no settlement of the flint glass strike until next fall, says the Pittsburgh Commercial-Gazette. Tlio Conference Committee of the Glass Manufacturers Association met yesterday and agreed to do nothing about the matter. Yesterday was the day set to allow the fires in the different factories in Pittsburgh to go out if the workers had not signed the manufacturers agreement. As the former did not comply with the request several of the facto'ry owners gave orders io let the fires go out, and the settlement of the strilko in these houses is a thing of the past this season. It would take two weeks to get the pots heated before they could start, and it is not at all likely they will resume until next September. All the striking glass workers are muking preparations for the annual summer fishing trips. On account of being idle they will leave next month to bo gone until the last of August. In the meantime should the manufacturers want to settle the strike it is not likely that the workers will come to any terms with them until full. If they go away they will be in 110 bury to come back. MINNIE PALMERTlio Intercut In Her Coming Engagement Unnlmted?Crowded liou?e* Astnrcd. The interest in the engagement of Miss Minnie Palmer, who opens at the Opera House to-night iu the strongest play she has ever had, "My Brother's Sister," instead of flagging seems to grow. The few speculators who in spite of the precautions taken to prevent, managed to secure a few seats to resell, made a fat thing of it, desirable seats for Friday night Belling readily at ?2 50 to $4. The seats in the gallery for tonicht's norformanrfl also sold well vph terday. A number of eligible seats upstairs remain, anil those who buy early to-day will be almost as well fixed as those who got in the rush. The seats for the matinee and night performance to-morrow are not all sold, and those left are fairly good. The matinee performance will dc the same play as tonicht, "My Brother's Sister, and each lady in tho audience to-morrow afternoon will receive a lovely souvenir. It iB evident that at every performance tho popular little comedienne is to bo greeted by crowded houses, and the wisest thing those who desire to see her to the best advantage can do is to reserve seats to-day, before they are all gone. Miss Palmer and her company did not come to Wheeling yesterday, as it was thought they might. They will arrive on the Pan-Handle railroaa at 3:45 this afternoon. An officer has been secured here to meet at the train the detective who travels with the comprny in charge of Miss Palmer's diamonds, "and accompany him to the hotel. THE MXSli'v 'INSTITUTE.

It is said on good authority that tho LaUclle nail works arc about to put in a building on their premises now vacant, but formerly occupied as a blacksmith shop, a plant for the manufacture of the small sizes of nails out of pickled iron, as they are now made in numerous tack factories here and elsewhere. As has been heretofore explained in the columns of this paper, tho nails thus mado are sold at prices at which the ordinal v cut nail cannot begin to compete with them. Tho iron used is treated before beinc cut to a bath in acid and then in alkali, which renders it so easy to cut that the knives of the machines do not# have to be ground nearly so often as the* nail machine knives, and tho reduction of labor thus accomplished cheapens the nail materially. It lias been a question whether the nail mills would come to the tack makers' way of cutting nails, or abandon the market for small sites to their competitors.
