they would comic in to Father Juteshouse four

LOKDOX Dec GThe Irish members of
parliament reassembled this afternoon de I
liberations being conducted with extra pre
caution for secrecy The first business tran
sated was the reading of Gladstones letter in
reply to the committee Gladstone remains
Inn in his determination in ho way to recog
nlze Parnell as leader of the Nationalists and
his position i emphasized by his letter In
which he offers to conduct negotiations with a
now Irish leader oa a footing of confidence equal
to that which he ones accorded to Parnell
The reading of tho letter sees greeted with
cheers by the section of the party oppos
ing to Parnell and ironical cries
by his supporters A stormy debate
followed Barney Sexton and Healy made a
determined attempt to bring about a final
settlement of the question They insisted
there should be an immediate division of mem
bers on the main question before tbe meeting
namely the retirement of Parnell from the
leadership Finally Sexton gave Parnell his
u tlmatum to the effect that If a decision on
the question was delayed by Parnell after I 1
oclock this etcnlng the majority would hold a
meeting of their own and depose him from
office A scene of great excitement followed
v 115 oclock a recess was taken for

When ths meeting reassembled the report of
the confering delegntes was read at length Mr

Abraham and John OConnor rose from their
seats simultaneously when Paraett declared
tIle latterhud the floor Abraham persisted in
his effort to move a resolution but could not
amid the clamor Ho then handed it to Justin
McCarthy who rose from his seat and was ap
parently about to read i when Parnell grasped I
the resolution from his handsaynghu wouldnt
receive it tremendous uproar followed and
when quiet was restored Parnell said until the
party deposes him ho would remain cha rman
Berry retorted You are not our chairman
ana added that Parnell was a dirty trick
ter which caused another uproar
Arthur OConna appealed to his friends to
show every possible respect to their late
Mccarty said he had only risen to a point of
order Some one handed him a paper and tho
chairman struck it out of his hand
Pirnell said he took it from McCarty but the
latter insisted the paper was struck from his
Healy moved that Abrahams motion be
heard out Paraell refused
John OConnor then moved that the meeting
call the attention of the country to the fact that
thojigh the original resolution was altered to
meetGladstone and his objection he still re
fused to confer with the party unless Parnell
bo removed This he said proved Parnells
contention that it impossible to get a direct
answertrpm Gladstone He believed Ireland
would resent this
Timothy Healy caused another tremcndlous
raw by shouting Who is the mistress of the
1 Cries of shamacame from all narts of the
room and Parnell referred to Henley as
cowardly little scoundral who dared in an as
sembly Irishmen to Insult awomen
Abraham got tho floor ind said since Parnell
refused to resign members would 10 wanting in
respect to themselves i they longer delay
bringing matters to an issue tho chairman
having ignominiously treated and torn Mc
Carthys resolution
Parnell Thats untrue
Abraham daclined to enter into an altercation
but repeated It would be shameful to allow tho
minority to continue making the party a laugh
Ing stock Ho proposed an amendment that
Parnells chairmanship be terminated
Another squabble ensued and Paracll decided
Abraham sects out of order whereupon Healy
shouted Bravo
Healy said Parnell 1 wont stand much
more rom you The amendment i only admis
sible as a substantial motion
ArthurOConna proceeded amid the uproar to
argue that he had avowed to cease talking and
to put an end to what was rapidly becoming
dl disgraceful I ask the majority this party
hu concluded at once to record their decision
If not hero then elsewhere
Parnell You know i Is not an amendment
Justin McCarthy took the floor He had
hoped up to last night that Parnell would still
help them out of their terrible dlfliculty He
was disappointed and it would be a waste of
time to discuss the matter further He sug
gcsted that all agreeing with him withdraw
Justin Huntley McCarthy followed the major

The AntlIarncllitfs Elect McCarthy
LONDON Dec 6The opponents of Parnell
who withdrew from the meeting in a body held
a meeting in the conference room today The
antiParncll meeting by a unanimous vote
elected Justin McCarthy chairman and pro
ceeded to consider the following resolution
We members of the Irish parliamentary
party solemnly renew our adhesion to the
principles in devotion to which we have never
wavered that the Irish party is and always
must remain independent of all other parties
Further we declare we will never entertain any
proposals for the settlement of the home rule
question except such as satisfy the aspirations
ofhe Irish party and Irish people
The resolution WhiCh was proposed by Healy
and seconded by Sexton was unanlmoasly
adopted The result was immediately com
municated to Gladstone Upon hearing what
had been done Gladstone exclaimed Thank
God home rule is saved
Gladstone to the Nationalist Hcetlnsr
LONDON Dec Gladstone In his letter to
the Nationalist meeting acknowledges the re
ceipt of the resolutions adopted by the Irish
conference and says in part that the question
raised by the publication of his letter to Morley
was a question of leadership which Is separate
from and has no proper connection with home
rule When the Irish party settles this ques
tion in such a manner as will enab e me to
renew my former relations with thee Irish
party it will bo my desire to enter
without prejudice into such confidential
communication as may serve all amendments
and suggestions of improvement in my plan
lor a home rule measure I assure you it is my
desire t press forward at the flrst favorable op
portunity ajust and effective measure for home
rule I recognize and earnestly seek to uphold
the independence of the Irisu party no less
than that of the Liberal party acknowledge
with satisfaction the harmony prevailing be
tween the parties since l j When the present
difficulty is removed I know no reason to antici
pate its interruption I look forward with con
ndcncc as do my colleagues to the formation
and prosecution of a measure which In meet
ing all just claims ol Ireland will llkewlsa
obtain tile approval of the people of Great
Britain Finally I will remind you of coy
declaration that apart from personal coon
dunce there is but one guarantee that can bo of
real value to Ireland It is that recently pointed
out by Harconrt when he called attention to the
unouestionable political fact that no party nor
no body could ever hope to carry a scheme for I
home rule that did not have the cordial con
currence and support of the Irish nation
Position of the League In America
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YdllK Dec 6The Irish members of
parliament now in this country will make no
more speeches in American cities until the
Parnell leadership question is decided St
Louis excepted where they will speak next
week They will not abandon their American
tour unless there Is u split in the Irish party
abroad after the committee conferring with
Gladstone shall report
Patrick Gleason mayor of Long Island city
and president of the municipal couccll of the
Land league last night said the Irish American
leagues had nothlngto gain by nctingly hastily
while the Parnell affair was yct a combat on
the other side
First the policy of the members of the
lIngo here said he is to insist upon unity of
action on the other side Instead of urging the
support of Parnell as leader of one faction or
organization the vital question to be decided
is should there or should there not be a united
front The league horn does not want to advo
cate thS clams of a fiction singly and when the
welfare and future Ireland are at stake no man
no matter haw he has been beloved by the peo
ple should stand in tho way In piaee then
of advocating one or two fragments cl a party
every effort should ho made to heal all dEer
cnccs What if Parnell persists in his claim to
leadership after the Gladstone meeting
I see nothing but chaos All the gi eat work
accomplished during the past ten years would
have to bo begun over again and in he face of
far more adverse circumstances than ever
Thus far the Land league has said nothing
formally abody regardingtho deplorable situ
ation of affairs bat unless the Irish party de
cides on unity ihe league will declare itself
very emphatically
If there is a split of the party abroad after
the Gladstone conference what would be the
use of the Irish envoys remaining here They
would be foolish to go before the Parnell com
bat is ended II the party does not unite under
some leader and remains with Mr Pared at
the head of one Irish faction and Mr Some
body else at the head of another it must do
what it can to live and thrive on wind when it
needs help from this side of the Atlantic The
league will not contribute any more money acd
win openly declare that not a dollar will go
abroad for the use ot the party until it comes to
its senses With unity over there there is no
fear of cc split here With the party split on
the other side there will be unity here against
sending help to factions
The Delesates Going to New York

The Irish envoys left for New York this even
ing Shortly before their departure Dillon on

sociated Press representative We have up to
the present time maintained silence and ab
stained from inviting any expression ol opinion
on the situation at home out of respect for the
deliberations of our colleagues We have to
day however received assurances that the Par
liamentary Fund association of New York
otherwise known ah tbeHoffman housi commit
tee which raised 5300000 and turned it over to
Parnell personally at the time of the last gen
eral election heartily endorses our action and
that the municipal council of the league in New

A Few of the Nuisances that Should Keceive
Proper Attention
To the Editor of THE HEIIALD
Much as I admire and am interested in
the growth of our beautiful city 1 cannot
help but notice some vcry seriouB and flag
rant evils and 1 think it is high time to
have a stop put to them The first evil
to which I wish to call attention is this
zig znr shameful and furious driving wltu
out any order or system as to which side to
pass an opposite team paying no regard to
the pedestrian who has tho first rightof
way in all civilized countries I will
venture an assertion that there is
scarcely a cay passes but what some
teamster comes in contact with
a pedestrian without any regard
to lameness sight hearing or ape For
partial proof of this read our daily papers
and then take into consideration the scores
of cases that never are reported to the
Again two teams meet one loaded the
other not whether it contains women
children a cripple or otherwise the
teamster with his load pays no more heed
to the rights of the other than if ho wens
not driving As for pass by the right
that is just as it suits the driver ol the
heaviest load Thus the many collisions
which do not end without the hard feelings
and hard words such as are not used in
churches or Sunday schools broken
wagons buggies ana sometimes broken
Another evil is the shameful and
furious driving of bucpics butcher
and delivery wagons in general and it
seems to be mora reckless in tho center
and thronged part of the city thin else
where C3
A third evil is the lack of deference and
rospoct and reverance paid to funeral pro
A fourth is the breakneck pall melt way
of driving on our public drives Now you
need not go tn the Liberty park or the
drives in that neighborhood to see this
Take a walk on BrIgham street east of
Main on a Sunday afternoon or evening
and if you dont see soma highflying races
it is because tho weather is too stormy So
much for team driving
And now let me call attention to the
street car system of driving on our princi
pal streets and especially when they come
in contact with others at crossings
Now I grant wo are living in a fait age
and that ail must have a good deal of ket
up and get in them but where electric
cars meet at the Bade Gate South Temple
Second Tnird Fourth
First south on
Main and other parts ills simply appalling
to see the speed at which they ore run and
the risks that are taken but little regard
being paid to thepedestrian teams or any
thing else Yet ontheseprinihpallcrossings
there are scores andsomottmea hundreds
of pepp1ej ll under the electric wires
which if broken carry death and destruc
tion wherever they strike
Another evil is the lack of heed
paid to tho pedestrian rights upon
our crossings Look at our crowded
streets on the busy days confer
ence or fair days when the bathing
trains arrive or depart on somo excursion
day The masses under these various sur
roundings arc simply in the centre of tiho
city carrying their lives in their hands so
to speak
The last complaint I wish to make is that
with the pedestrians tnemselves I ques
tion if a more blundering lot of people cite
befound in any city of its size than in this
and yet perhaps it is the most cosmopoli
tan city of its size in the United State
Keeping to the right is never dreamt of Is
is a genuine goasyouplease Blunder
blundering scrambling helter skelter is
the style Over goes a parsol down comes
a mans hat I beg pardon Dear me >
Well did you ever Well really etc
etc aro the apologies offered and we go on
to blunder again It is easy to find fatal t
but I propose to find tho remedies
To the remedy of the first evil Let the
mayor and city council pass an ordinance s
on the driving of teams if none such is on
the docket defining which side to pass
the right of all teams the speed they shalj
not exceed and defining explicitly tli
pedestrians right and then instructing tha
marshal to enforce the law He with hia
corps of efficient men on the crossings svhl5
noon bring about a better order of things 1B
think an ordinance to this effect will cover
and remedy the first four evils so apparent
to everyone
And now for the electric car system Pre
scribe these companies to a certain speed
and compel them to furnish flagmen at thero
and all necessary crossings and thee VTO
shall have a safer transportation of life
Now for a very simple connection oft
travel for the pedestrians themselves Sus
pend a sign say at tho corner of each
block Keep to the right as is the caso
in our great cities east and in GreuQ
Britain and my word for it in a short time
everything will go as smooth as it does se <
the cities named
Let the police force be instructed to pro
tect while crossing tim streets the ladies
the lame halt deaf blind and the aged and
we will all feel better safer and prouder
