The Nationalists met at noon to further
consider the question of Parnells leader
ship All the Irish members in London
were in attendance Parnell occupied the
chair After the meeting had been called
to order one of the members read the
manifesto issued yesterday by the Catholic
hierarchy in Ireland declaring that in con
sequence of the revelations of the OShea
divorce case which convict Parnell of one
of the gravest offenses known to religion
and society Catholic Ireland cannot ac
cept as leader a man wholly dishonored
that the continuance of his leadership
would imperil the cause of Ireland The
reading of the manifesto was greeted with
cheering by Parnells opponents
Clancy offered his amendment which
provides in view of difference between

be instructed to obtain from Gladstone
Morley and Harcourt before any other
consideration of the question information
on the departure from the bill of 1880 made
by Gladstone in his suggestions affecting
the control of the Irish constabulary and
the settlement of the land question A pro
longed debate took place on the amend
ment Parnell intimated that if the party
took the responsibility oft his shoulders
and insisted upon the Liberal leaders pro
mising to carry a respectable home rule bill
through commons in the face of all opposi
tion he would retire from the leadership I
He asked the meeting to accept Clancys
resolution whereupon he said the alliance
between Nationalists and Liberals would
be renewed Healy refused to sumbit to
Parnells stipulation Ho declared they were
even beyond the lines of compromise sug
gested at yesterdays meeting Sexton
declared a majority of the members were
firmly determined to adhere to the main
question and would simply vote that Par
nell must resign
At 6 oclock p m the meeting adjourned
till noon tomorrow
A rumor was circulated this afternoon
to the effect that Clancys amendment had
been rejected Inquiry proved there was
no truth 1 the rumor On the contrary
the latest phase of the situation bids fair
for an agreement A committee has been
appointed to wait upon Gladstone and en
deavor to obtain from him the assurance
desired by Parnell The committee con
mittee consists of Parnell Sexton Healy
Justin McCarthy John Redmond Deasy
Power and jLenmy Parnell will take no
port in the negotiations with Gladstone
Before the appointment of the committee
Parnell asked the meeting for an informal
show of hands on Clancys amendment
This disclosed the fact that only Barry
and Clancy continued to hold out against
the amendment Besides Gladstone the
committee will also see Harcourt and Mor
ley and endeavor to conclude negotiations
The committee decided to entrust Healy
Redmond Sexton and Leamy with the
conduct of negotiations with Gladstone I
is reported that at a meeting of his adher
ents last night Parnell promised to abide
by the decision of the majority of the Irish I
members on the value of Gladstones as
surances The supporters of Parnell are
inadequate confident Gladstones assurances will prove
At the opening of the meeting today
Sexton denied ho had ever proposed Par
nells retirement from public life and
said he only meant he should retire from
the chairmanship of the party Parnell
proceeded at length with the Clancy pro
posal He decided he could not bind him
self to retire until he could see Gladstones
reply His position has been grantedhim
not merely as leader of the party but as
leader of the nation This has been derived
from circumstances in which speaking
with the greatest respect his hearers had
no share After speaking of his services
in assimilating and soothing the prejudice of
the discordant elements of the Irish
throughout the world Parnell said You
know and I know there is no man living
if I am gone who could succeed in recon
ciling the feelings of the Irish people to
the cHawarden proposals As you
wish to withdraw from me this re
sponsibility I think it only reason
able that you should give judgment
on those matters for the benefit of your
constituents Therefore I submit this
That the party accept no home rule
bill unless it gives immediate control of
the police and power to deal with land
Mr Gladstone is capable of working to
secure a majority at the elections which
will render him Independent of both the
Irish and Conservative parties I you
throw mo to him get my value by securing
a pledge of a satisfactory home rule bill
Healy expressed amazement at Parnells
speech and protested against adding new
conditions to the Clancy resolution Par
nell ho said wanted to withdraw the
question of leadership and substitute a dis
cussion of home rule They could get
neither straight conduct nor straight an
swers from him
Parnell replied he had given his answer
He regretted i was not considered
straight but by it he would stand or fall
Healy Then you bill fall Whats the
use of further discussion A tremendwous
uproar followed Leamy shouted Away
with him John OConner yelled Crucify
him and a scene of wild disorder
followed When quiet was finally
restored Healy said the meeting
could notchange his determination to de
pose P rneU The latter was no
greater than the majority of his party yet
he talked of defying it Healy believed
there would be enough statesmenship left
in the benighted majority who opposed Par
nell to take a course as statesmanlike as
that of 1SS6 Then Healy read portions of
Parnells speech delivered at his birthday
banquet six months after the Hawarden in
terview declaring the independence of tho
Irish party and eulogizing the alliance
with Gladstone An angry duel of
words followed Healy repeating Par
nells recent remarks about Glad
stone and finishing by asking Who
broke the alliance Parnell and
Nolan both exclaimedThe Gladstone I
Healy retorted It perished from the
stench of the divorce court
Parnell replied that if Gladstones letter
had not been written the alliance would
have been maintained
Healy defended Gladstone He said
Parnell had bespattered that gentlemans
gray hairs with mud and now wanted the
Irish members hat in hand to go and ask i
favors of Gladstone I Parnell succumbed
he was only one man gone The heads
of greater leaders had been stricken off at
the block before now for Ireland but the
Irish canse remained
Sexton said he had listened to Healy
with regret Would Parnell resign he
asked if the majority voted for the accept
ance of Gladstones reply I
Parnell Certainly
Barry asked for further explanation and
Parnell vehemently replied tif have stated
with distinctuess that I will not give a fur
ther reply

Secretary Noble Devising a Plan
to Reduce their Fees
I the Matter of Pensions to Soldiers Who
are Totally Disabled The Scheme
is Gigantic
WASJMVGTON Dec Representative
McKinley today introduced a bill in the
House similar to the ono presented in the
Senate providing that the present tariff
law shall not affect the operations of the
Hawaiian reciprocity treaty
Secretary Noble has been paying consid
erable attention lately to the subject of at
torneys fee intension cases and is formu
lating a plan by which claimants for pen
sions not represented by attorneys may be
placed upon the same basis as those who
are In speaking of attorneys fees Secre
tary Noble with some warmth said
Tne pension bureau is now issuing
between fourteen and fifteen thousand cer
tificates a week This means the attorneys
are receiving every week out of money ap
propriated to relieve the necessities of old
soldiers an amount estimated between one
hundred and fifty and thron hundred and
seventyfive thousand d iirA largo
number of cases are adjusted under the old
law which allowed a fee of 25 The new
law allows but 51 but even at this rate
attorneys would realize 5150000 aweek I
look over the list of attorneys added the
secretary and find many of them are men
who upon their knowledge of law could not
practice before a country justice of the
peace but here in Washington they manage
in a few years to accumulate a million dol
lars or more acting as attorney for pen
sion claimants
Quays Pension Bill
WASHINGTON Dee 4 Senator Quay yes
terday introduced a bill granting all per
sons on the pension list 01 hereafter placed
on it who lost both eyes or both feet or
who are otherwise totally disabled a pen
sion of 10 per month Also to all persons
who lost an arm at the shoulder or a leg at
the hip 60 a month and to those who lost
an arm below the elbow or leer below the
knee 555 a month To those who lost a
hand or foot or have been totally disabled
in some way 50 a modth The bill pro
vides further that persons who contracted
two or more disabilities shall receive a sum
per month equal to the total of the rates
for all of the disabilities mentioned
In the Senate
WASHINGTON Dec 4Among the bills
introduced and referred was one for a per
manent tariff commission and one by
Stewart for the free and unlimited use of
silver as money
The joint resolution reported yesterday I
by Hawley to issue arms to North and
South Dakota and Nebraska was taken up
flawloy urged the necessity of prompt ac
Voorhees quoted an interview with Gov
ernor Foster of Ohio exmember of the
commission to treat with the Sioux in
which Foster said the whole trouble in fact
was that the Indians were starving Give
them enough to eat and there will he no
further trouble
After a lengthy debate on the Indian
question the joint resolution was amended I
so as to apply to the states of North and i
South Dakota Wyoming and Nebraska
and passed
Morgan introduced a joint resolution
which went over until tomorrow appro
priating 5000 for an investigation under
the orders of the Senate as tohe cause of
the trouble among the Indians
The election bill was then taken up and
Pugh addressed the Senate in opposition to
it The bill he said was never intended to
be put in operation in Republican districts
I was founded on one proposition aud that
was that the state election officers might be
watched guarded and overruled because
they were Democrats The whole concep
tion of the bill was a transparent and auda
cious scheme haying no other end or pur
pose than the capture of Democratic dis
tricts and their transfer to the Republican
party in Congress to be used in perpetuat
ing its supremacy in defiance of the will of
the people
Gray explained ho did not desire to
speak this afternoon
Blair moved to lay the election bill aside
until tomorrow and take up the displaced
labor bill
Hoar gave notice that after today he
would endeavor to press the election bill
without having it laid aside for any other
purpose whatever until a final vote was
Cockrell objected to the labor bill being
taken up and after a number of bills on the
calendar were passed the Senate adjourned I
I the House
WASHINGTON Dec 4In the House the
unfinished business in the morning was the
bill for the punishment of every guardian
conservator curator tutor or other judic
ial agent for the embezzlement of the pen
sions of wards The previous question was
ordered yeas 113 j nays 92 and the bill
On motion of Morrow of California the
House went into committee o the whole on
the pension appropriation bill
Morrow explained that the bill appro
priated for payment of pensions 133173000
to be distributed among 654516 pensioners
This was the largest number of bene
ficiaries ever provided for in any single
item in the statues of the United States I
was estimated that the gross cost for the
United States of these pensions for the
year 1892 would average 20040 each He
believed there would be no deficiency next
Cooper of Indiana got the floor and re
viewed all of the charges made against
Commissioner Raum which formed the
basis of investigation last session Ho
asserted they all had been proved The
pension bureau should be presided over by
a man above criticism and above reproach
During the last campaignthe commissioner
had gone to Indiana and had invaded his
Coopers district Thecommissidnersonly
excuse was that he might defeat Coopers
election The commissioner had gone to
Indiana to prostitute his high office for par
tisan ends He Cooper had great vener
ationfor the pension bureau and protested
that the institution should not become a
spawning place for corporations or a state
for the sale of patent rights nor should it
be presided over by a moribund and
malodorous politician likened by a Re
publican paper to a bad egg
Sawyer of New York was surprised
that Cooper should make his speech at this
time before the case was closed Cooper
had said the committee had abandoned any
further investigation but it had beAn thn
clear understanding that the committee
should hear further testimony this season I
Sawyer further denied that the charges
against Raum had been proved After
further debate the committee rose and the
House adjourned I

sultation with Prof Koch on the advisa
bility of treating him with the newromedy
The grand duke until he knew that the in
jection of the lymph had caused the death
of a few patients was very anxious to try
the remedy but he now desires to have a
guarantee from the discoverer of tne fluid
of his safety from fatal result This Prof
Koch naturally refuses to give but advised
the grand ducal physician to attend a post
mortem of a former patient and see for
himself the changes caused by the working
of the lymph and then if after this practical
observation of the effect the physician is
willing to risk the experiment of the inoc

I THE HERALD The official opinion of At

carries consternation among the officers
elect of Alturas county That officer holds
that every person who claims an office by
virtue of the October election in Idaho
should have qualified within thirty days
We understand that no one in Alturas
county has complied with this constitu

until the second Monday of January when
they were supposed to enter upon their du

of this will be remains to be seen but it

AttorneyGeneral Millers Annual Report I
WASHINGTON Doc 5AttorneyGeneral
Miller in his annual report says vigilant ef
forts have been made to enforce the legis <
lation excluding Chinese immigration By
the cooperation ot the treasury depart
ment it is believed most attempts to cross
the border have been frustrated as have
attempts to bring Chi ese directly through
to ports of the United States upon the Pa
In regard to the reorganization of tho ju
diciary it is earnestly hoped the legislation
now far advanced will not be permitted to
fail In regard to the difficulty of enforc
Inc the law the attorneygeneral says
The enforcement of the internal revenue
laws and United States election laws is
particularly resisted Several assassina
tions of officers with tho purpose of im
peding tho execution of the lavs and or
ders of the United States occurred during
the past year Within the last ten days
a deputy marshal attempting to serve
a warrant for the arrest of a man
for violating tUe postal law was shot and
instantly killed by the man sought to be
arrested and onthe preliminary examina
tion before a magistrate of the state the
prisoner was promptly discharged I is
certainly an anomaly in government that
those who have committed murders for the
purpose of stopping prosecution in the
federal courts should not only not be
punished but not even be put upon trial in
the state courts So long as persons who
kill officers witnesses or jurors fprithe
purpose of escaping the administration of
justice cannot be tried ana punished in a
federal court as for minor offenses the ad
ministration of United States laws and the
laws themselves in many districts will have I
little respect The supreme court recently
decided there is a peace of the
United States I is the duty of
Congress to provide by law for the
preservation of this peace everywhere
and at all times In prosecutions for vio
lations of election laws in several districts
conviction and pleas of guilty have been
obtained in a large number of cases As an
illustration however of the difficulties
met in such psosecutions the district attor
ney for one district reports that in a cer
tain county a number of whose citizens
were convicted of violations of the election
laws the county court ordered all the fines
and costs assessed against them in the
United States court to be paid out of the
county treasury and in another county a
number whoso citizens in like manner
were convicted or pleaded guilty of such
offenses in a United States court 8130
was actually paid out of the county treas
ury upon such fines and costs in rne day
These facts speak for themselves

ifying to note the fact that this was at
tended by a political phenomenon which
was a surprise to all of us Our colored
fellow citizens absolutely refused to be led
to the polls by their bosses When it is
clearly shown that the majority of our col

publican ideas the vexed negro problem
will be solved and the fear of a return of
negro domination will haunt us no more 4
Can I not pledge in your behalf that wo
white men of South Carolina stand ready
and willing to listen kindly to all reason
able complaints to grant all just rights
and safe privileges to those colored people
and guarantee fair treatment at our hands
We whites have absolute control of the
state government and we intend to retain 4
it The intelligent exercise of the right of
suffrage at once the highest privilege and
most sacred duty of the citizen is beyond
the capacity of the vast majority of
colored man We deny tnat All men are
created equal It is not true now and it
was not when Jefferson wrote it But we
cannot deny it Is our duty as the governing
power in South Carolina to insure to in

General John H Rice of Kansas is
drawing up a call to the Farmers alliance
and all industrial unions of America which
favor the principles of the St Louis plat
form to meet in Cincinnati February 23 to
consider the information of a third party
At the afternoon session the delegation
representing the Citizens alliance of Kan
sas were introduced by Colonel Livingston
of Georgia and all made addresses the
substance of which was that their organ
izetion was deeply interested in the success
of the Farmers movement that both
bodies were practically working on the
same line and they saw no reason why
merchants traders druggists etc should
not unite in promoting this movement
They asked for a couniittee of conference
to arrange for closer relations between the
Citizens1 alliance and the National alli
ance The request was granted and a com
mittee appointed
Delegates from the New York Working
mens Reform league and AntiMonopoly
league addressed the convention saying
among other things the mechanics and
laborers in the city were as much depend
ent upon the financial and industrial con
dition of the country as the farmers were
and should bo eligible to membership in the
Colonel Livingston in reply said they
would best keep their own organization as
at present but should fraternize more
closely and confer more frequently upon
measures of public policy He recom
mended cooperation and fraternity with
other national bodies but not consolidation
In an interview with an Associated Press
representative this afternoon Delegate
Davis said the call of a national conference
to beheld February 23 next with view to

this its contents are not to bo made publiu
yet Davis thought the convention would
undoubtedly result in placing a presiden

will not be presented to the National alli

in thirtysix alliance states and perhaps in
all the states of the union
There is considerable indignation among

today The policy of the alliance seems
to be one of the strictest secrecy
The National Colored alliance this after
noon discussed a resolution condemning
action of the white alliance in passing a re
solution yesterday in opposition to the
federal election bill because such action
has no reference whatever to the aims and
purposes of the organization The opinions
expressed were not so much in favor of the
federal election bill as in condemnation of
the white alliance for going out of its way
to middle in politics
A resolution will probably bo passed to
morrow condemning the Conger land bill
and praying for the passage of the Paddock
pure food bill At an open session of the
National alliance tonight a delegation of the
colored alliance was received and several
speeches made all indicating the leaning of
the colored alliance toward the now politi
