SPLIT IN NATIONALIST, RANKS WniUa O'Brien to Itnlin Sent la Parliament IImmm ( rrlctlpa. LO XN, Nov. . William O'Brien (Irish nat' ' baa decided to resign hla seat It . .-Client and aa a member of the gov .sf Nody of the United Irish league. XSZ'TJEFSS ague, announcing hla decision, Mr. Brlen complains that efforts are being made In many quarters to "thwart the pol Icy recommended by the national directory for the purpose of extracting the largest possible benefit for the Irish tenantry un der the new land act." He aaya In this connection that he himself has been pur sued by many Interenta "with a ferocity and a hatred beyond that incurred by any Irishman of this generation." When he finds that the policy which the Irish party, the national directory, the national convention and the representative boards of the country have approved Is covered with opprobrium and derision by a newspaper which la the only source of In formation for half of Ireland, and when ha finds that this counter policy la shared by public men. Including his own col- deliberations he Is determined to resign without delay from Parliament and from the governing body of the United Irish league and to leave the state to whatever alternative policy the assailants are pre- pared to lay before' the country. Mr. O'Brien adda that aa hla continued edltor- ,nD . the Irish People would Inevitably ptper afteT thla week's Issue.

"Mr. Redmond's action," wrote Mr. Davltt, "turns the whole lrfnd aot Into a farce." Other members of the nationalist party, Including John Dillon, have been almost In open revolt against the land aot and Mr. Redmond, whom they regard as too moderate. Owing to the powerful oo-op oration of Mr. O'Brien, Mr. Redmond has been able to retain the leadership of the party, but with Mr. O'Brien's resignation there Is every probability of a far-reach- in,, BPut In the nationalist ranks. jgr O'Brien has long been In poor health .n(j it required an effort to enable him to maKa a publlo appearance oe attend Par- namnt.

ELECTION RESULT IN STATE Complete Bstarai Received from Seventy One if the Binety Counties. NOTHING TO CHANGE PREVIOUS ESTIMATE Barnes Will nave from A.OOO ta 10,000 Plurality aad Republicans Get Most of tha District Jndgtes. Complete returns from Tuesday's election have been received from seventy-one of the ninety counties In the state. These coun ties this year cast 1E8,97 votes for the leading candidates for supretne Judge and the counties yet to report have not, in all probability cast to exceed 40,000 Votes. In these seventy-ons counties Barnes, rep., or supreme Judge, has a plurality of 1.029 over Sullivan, fua. These same counties two years ago gave the republican candidate for supreme Judge a plurality of 10,944, the remaining counties giving Bedgwlck, rep., 1,975 plurality. Should the ratio be main tained Barnes plurality would be ovdC 9,000. As the rural counties, which are the ones yet to report, have shown a smaller percentage of loss and In many Instances a guln over two years ago, it Is probable that Barnes' plurality will be between 9.G00 and 10,000. Returns on regent have not been tabu lated, but even a casual examination of them shows that the regents will have a larger plurality than the head of the ticket In the contest for district Judges the fuslonlsts havs not fared well, they hav ing elected only seven out of tho twenty five In the state, according to their own estimates, and several of these are much In doubt, the returns being Incomplete.
