elements of the Irish throughout the world.
Parnell said. "You know and I know there

to the reorganization of tbe judiciary. It l»
earnestly hoped that the legislation, now

The attorney-general devote* considerable
space to denunciation of the cane aad fee
making abuses, snd says they call for
most careful consideration aud vigorous
treatment at the hands of congress. In re
gard to the dldlculty of enforcing the law,
the attorney -general says tbe enforcement
of the internal revenue laws and the United

for tlie arrest of a man for violation of the
postal laws was shot and instantly killed by
the man sought to be arrested: aud on pre
liminary examination before a mag
istrate of the state the prisoner
wa.s pn»mptly discharged. It is cer
tainly an aaomaly on a government that
tbo»a who bare committed murder for the
purpose of stopping proaecntiou In the "fed

but not even be put upon trial In tlx state

the pn-ludicwuf tbe Irish people in regard

In conclusion. Parnell made reference to
what he termed (JUd-l..m «m1!guity, aad
aatd: "I have had many dealings with hint,
but never got a straight aaewer.
if his fParnell's) reaolutlon is acrapdad
and the liberal reply is satisfactory he
would place hitpself in their hands.
Healy expressed amasement at Paruell'*
speech and protasted against adding any
new condition** to the Clancy reNolutlon.
Parnell, he aald, wanted to withdraw tbe
question of leadership and substitute dis
cussion on bourn rale. They ouuld get
neither strtght cMiduetnor straight anaaren
from him.
Parnell replied that he bud given bl*
answer He regretted it was not considered
straight. But by it be would stand or fall.
Healy- Then you will fall. What's the
itae of further discussion?
A tremendous uproar followed. Leaiuy
shouted Away with him'" John O'Oonuer
yelled ••Crucify htm!" snd a scene of wild
disorder ensued. When quiet waa finally
restored liealr said nothing could change
his determination to depsu» Paraell. The
latter was no greater than the malorlty of
the party, yet he talked of defying It.
Healy believed there would be enough
state-rmanwhip left hi the Iwatghted major-
Ity who opposed Parnell to take a course as
statesmanlike a» that of ISM, Then Healy
read portions of Parnell's speei-h delivered
at a birthday taliquet six months after tbe

An angry duel of words followed. Healy
repeating Parneil's recent remarka about
Gladstone and finishing by aaking: "Wbo
broke the alliance?"
Parnell and Nolan hath IMtllli, "The
Gludstoue letter!"
Healy retorted. "It perished from the
•tench of the divorce court."
Parnell replied that If tbe Gladstone tot
ter itad not been written the alliance Would
have tjwen maintained.
Healy defended Gladatone. He eald Par
nell liespattered that gentleman's gray
hairs with mud, and now wanted the IrUh
gentlemen, hat ia hand, to go and ask
Gladstone for terms. If Parnell succumbed
he was only one man gone. The heads of
greater leaders had been stricken off at the
block i»efbre now fur Irelaad, but the Irish
cause remained.
Mextou said he had listened to Healy with
regret. Would parnell resign, he askeo. If
the majority voted for the acceptance of
Gladstone reply.
Parnell—- Certainly.
