THE Ij ATT Kit MAKES A SPEECH.
Cheered hf Irltlimen In London, larnefl
Says Few Words Concerning the Great
Fight l'reparatlona to Giro lllm an
Ovation When llo Ileaches Ireland.
LONDON, Dec, a The Parnellltea and
their opponents rested on their arms Sun
day after the exciting events of Saturday.
The secession of forty-five members of the
Irish purllnmentnry party from the con
vention, upon Mr. Farnell's refusal to put
a motion ordering htm to leave the chair,
is still the talk of the town. The Parnell
ltea, it Is understood, are anxious to force
an appeal to the country as soon as possible,
and claim that their antagonists aro afraid
to aubmlt tho Issue of their conduct to tha
people. It la stated on the alleged author
Ity of Timothy Healy that the party headed
by Justin McCarthy will continue to keep
their seats without any resignations, up
holding the cause of home rule and wait
ing for time to bring Rbout a sober and
deliberate Judgment in tha now excited
"Deader Than Isaao nntt.'
Mr. Barry said that Mr. Parnell'a cause
would lose Instead of gaining with tha
progress ri time, and that the next gen
eral election would see htm deader than
Isaac Butt. Parnell, on the othr.r hand,
la said to feel entirely confident and to bo
already selecting successors for those Lo
have deserted him. He is in amp'e funds,
as since tho division in the party several
American organizations have forwarded
money directly to him instead of to the
treasurers formerly appointed. A large
proportion of the Irish members have been
in receipt of stipends for their services in
parliament, and it la difficult to aee how
those disconnected from Parnell are to
receive their salaries hereafter, as the coin-1
mon fund Is locked up by the Imbroglio,
The MeCartliylteM Will Need Money.
One of the first tasks of the McCarth) -
ltes will necessarily be to devise some
scheme ot raising n fund Independent of
that heretofore relied upon for parliament-
ary expenses, and It Is not likely that:
either faction will obtain much money'
from the Irish people until the question ot
supremacy is settled.
Many ot the McCarthy people are much!
embarrassed for funds, as they have relied
on the quarterly checks for 250, which arei
just coming due. These checks will prob-i
ably be withheld by Mr. Parnell, and It Is
likely the needy members will be paid,
temporarily from the fund raised Saturday'
night for the establishment of a paper.
The antl-l'arnellltes are discussing tne
advisability of having Messrs. O'Brien and
Dillon return via France, in which coun-i
try a convention could be held for the pur-i
pose of obtaining their advice before they
submitted to rearrest and imprisonment.
Messrs. Gllbooly, P. O'Brien, Carew and
Mahon aro still classed as doubtful.
This makes the Uealy-McCarthy party's
strength fifty, and the Parnellltea' thirty
one. As leader and Friend.
New Yohk, Dec 10. In consequence of
the publication ot misleading versions of
the cablegrams which have jnst passed be
tween Mr. Parnell and Mr. O'Brien on the
subject ot negotiations for the reunion of
the Irish party Mr. O'Brien has communi
cated to the press the whole correspondence
New Yoax. Dec 7. 1890.
To Mr. Parnell, M. P., House of Commons, Lon
(Confidential.) I shrink with horror from tak
ing sides against you in a struggle which opens
auch aa appalling prospect of ruin and dtagrace
to our cause. Throughout this unhappy business
1 have abstained from saying one word personally
offenslre to you, and have read with deepeat pala
and disguat some of the personal attacks made
on you, and now before Ireland Is Irretrievably
committed to a ruinous conflict X appeal to you
as a leader I have for teD years been proud to
follow, and as a friend for whom I still feel a
warm affection, can you not see some way by
which, while safeguarding your own reputation,
the country may be saved from the destruction
which threatens tt f Wiixum 0'liint.v.
Too Late for ltescue,
London, Dec 8, 1890.
To Mr. O'llrien, Hoffman House:
Had you wired prior to Saturday some sug
gestion from me might have succeeded. Now
too late for me to rescue seceders from a false
position. Shall, however, be very glad to see and
consult you on arrival la Europe, Parnkll.
In addition to the above, Mr. O'Brien
forwarded the following cablegram yester
day: O'llrlen Will Sail Saturday.
Ntw Yore, Dec 0, 1800,
To Mr. rarnell, 11. 1"., House of Commons:
ltegret to find misleading version of my conll
dentlal cablegram published in the press. Your
reply shows a total mlaunderfetandlug of ray mes
sage, which was prompted by a i egard for post ser
vices and by,a still existing joraoual affection?
and sent with the knowledge ot colleagues here In
the earnest hope that you might In coosouance
with the will of a majority of the party, whose
election of chairmau we have Indorsed, Mod a
way by which tho country might he aave Jrom
k ruinous ooulllct. The tone of yoQr reply leaves
little ground for hope, hut having a regard to
the horrible consequences to the country ot a
prolonged Interulciue struggle, am still anxious
to hare aa Interview and shall start Saturday for
Franca on my way to Ireland. Am communicat
ing this to the press. Wiixum O'Daizx,
rarnell Speaks to a Crowd.
Lokdok. Dec 10. Mr, Parnell started
for Dublin last eveniug. There was a
crowd of Irish residents of London at the
railway station tasee him off, Thoy cheer
ed him with wild enthusiasm, and in re
sponse to their repeated calls Mr, Parnell
finally addressed them from a car window.
He said: "I am overjoyed that you have
honored me in such' numbers "with 'your
help In this fight which I have undertaken.
I owed sixteen years ago to Irishmen In
England the first assistance In framing
for my country the path which alio has
pursued from that day to this. I hays
never forgotten your help, and have' never
forgotten that to' you, exiles from Erin,
was due the first godspeed to the new
They Would Win Together.
"You ahall have no cause to regret that
ypu stood by me in those days, and you
will be with me to the end, and togethel
wa will win for our country what, God has
determined she shall get."
These remarks were greeted with Im
mense enthusiasm. There were a number
of Healylte members of parliament In lbs
rear car of the same train. They listened
with apparent internet to what their re
jected leader had to Bay, but made no open
AnIntarvlew with Parnell.
Nkw York, Deo. 10. The Vorld pub
lhfhes an Interview with Mr. Parnell, in
which be crlttses Gladstone for his tardiness
in taking actlou after the verdict pfthi
divorce court lie says ho did not know ot
Gladstone's letter to Morley until after bis
re-election. Fire days before the verdict
he had seen Morley, who apparently knew
what the result wonld be, but Morley asked
him no questions. Mr. Parnell said that
he bad al along determined to do nothing
lu the dlior.ee proceedings, for the reason
that ha thought a. ilefanaa saaa aolala Iba
province, or Mrs. O'Ehea. .Tie waa wllllnffts
gd Into the witness box, bUt when she con
cluded toWate fa6 deftnse he could not

n The Dnty oft Irish-Am. rteans.
Heclenletl that (h Lnd ever authorized
Mlclfaol Davltt'or any one else to say that
he would clear away the charges at thi
trial. 1 " ;
"What Ida" you .couslder la the duty ot
Irishmen in America in this crisis!" Mr.
"I consider,'" said Mr. Parnell earnestly,
"that );la. the duty Of Irishmen inWnirlca
at this crisis to assist me In maintaining
the integrity and Independence of the
Irish party. That integrity could not and
would not have been Impaired by any mere
alliance with the Liberal party, but mat
ters for some months pAst have progressed
further than a mere alliance.
"Something approaching to a fusion has
been and Is now taking place. This Is
what It Is necessary for me to check and
A Charge Answered.
"What have you to say about the charge
that you did your colleagues an injustice
in concealing Mr. Gladstone's conversa
tions about home rulef"
"It was Impossible," replied Mr. Parnell,
"for me to disclose by public speech or by
private explanation the setback which the
Ilawarden communications had given to
the cause of home rule, and the perplexity
with which they had filled my mind. The
matter was still not definitely settled.
"Until all hope had been removed ot ar
riving nt a satisfactory understanding upon
these Important subjects with Mr. Glad
stone It would have been highly improper
for me In any way to have referred publicly
to the matter."
A Hopeless Split.
Mr Parnell does uot believe that the
Irish pnrty can now be reunited. The re
turn "f O'llrltui and Dillon would uot mend
I was at all times willing to compro
mise, as my arceptanco of Mr. Clancy's
amendment proves, an acceptance which
would havo Involved my retirement had
Mr.Gladstone given the assurance the Irish
party required, but these assurances were
not given, and my persecution by our party
was still persisted iu. Messrs. Dillon uud
O'Brien took sides against me from the
first, and so lost the opportunity of a suc
cessful Intervention. Their Intervention
would now be too late."
Gold Coming to America.
New YonK, Dec 10. Gold to the amount
ot 13,000,000 will start from Europe this
week for Now York." Nearly all of this
will come by the steamship Majestic, which
sails today. This gold will tend vorr
strongly to relieve the money stringency,
in this country, the extent of which was
shown yesterday, when the rates for money
advanced to one-quarter per cent, and In
terest, for no apparent cause, except fear
on the part of capitalists. On Saturday
and Monday gold to the amount of f 1,000,
000 had been ordered. Today's orders were
aa follows: Lazard Freres, $500,000: August

The Nightingale Failure.
Patkrbon, N. J., Dec 10. The liabilities
of Messrs. Nightingale Bros. Sc Knight,
silk manufacturers of this place, who
made an assignment to Judge Barkalow,
are now stated to be not less than $400.-
000, and their assets, It Is believed, amount
to only about bait that sum. The cred
itors are chiefly the firm ot J, T. Walker,
bons cc (Jo., of Mew xorx, who went un
der last month, and the National Broad
way bank. About two weeks ago the firm
called a meeting of their creditors and of
fered a settlement, upon a basis of fifty
cents on the dollar, but this was declined
and the assignment followed. The wind
up is the culmination of difficulties under
which Nightingale Bros, have labored for
the lost seven or eight years.
A lArge Shoe Failure.
Syracuse, N. Y Dec 10. G. W. Ingalls

THE DELAMATER FAILURE.
About 830,000 Said to Have lleen Har
rowed Just Before the Crash Came.
MEADV1LLB. Pa.. Dec 8. No statement
of the Delamater failure will be Issued for
several days, but it is certain that about
one-half the inhabitants ot this city are
depositors. As far as can be learned the
liabilities of the firm will aggregate $500,-
uuu or more, it is tnought the deposits
will not amount to one-half this sum. but
Mr. Delamater has a good deal of paper
floating about, and In the last week he had
succeeded In putting out about $50,000, If
not more. Two days before the failure
about $30,000 was borrowed by the firm in
Philadelphia, and It is'statod that a round
sura was obtained lu Pittsburg on the
81,000,000 Was at Stake.
Philadelphia, Dec 10. A special dis
patch from a staff correspondent of The
Times, who left this city in company with
Stat Treasurer Boyer for MeadvIIle, says:
"&tate Treasurer iioyer arrived here yester
day from Philadelphia and at once went
to the office of Senator Delamater's at
torney, where he found the senator. Mr.
Boyer Informed him that he had come for
tbe purpose of learning the exact sltuutlon
of the affairs at the bank. 'That's just
wnat we are trying to nun out.' said Mr.
Delamater. 'I can't say just when a clear
and concise statement cau be made ready,
but I am anxious to have It as early as
The Interview lasted but two mlnntes,
and no one would have thought that $1,000,
000 pf state funds was at stake, so brief and
informal was It,
After the departure of the state treasurer
Senator Delamater said regarding the
cause ot lue laiiure:
"Some time prior to tbe election my po
litical enemies started the story that our
bauk was weak. The run continued for
ten days after tne election, and we were
just bridging over our troubles when the
"The real cause ot the difficulty lies with
me. I had early iu the campaign to put
up $50,000 with two other men In order to
keep the Philadelphia Finance company
in condition after tbe fight ot Senator Mac
Farlaue. In addition to that I had to pay
over $10,000 ot notes which I had Indorsed
for MacFarlane, and they fell due just be
fore the election. I was also forced to
raise large sums of money to meet the de
mands on the bank from people who were
withdrawing their deposits. I want to say
to you that I did not know of the failure
until I arrived here last Friday morning'
While the senator did not tell ot other
reasons for the failure It Is known that the
state treasurer, for weeks prior to the
bank's downfall, had made repeated re
quests ror nrst class security for tbe $100.'
000,000 which tbe Delamaters had In their
bank:. Tbe senator bad made repeated en
gagements to meet the state treasurer aud
arrange the entire matter In a satisfactory
way, but upon some pretext he always

looking to tho removal of the remains ot
Gen. Grant to Arlington was debated and
finally was defeated 93 to 153. A number
of public building bills wero passed. In
speaking against the Grant removal reso

surprised that the gentleman from Penn

turb tbe peace of this great hero. (Ap
plause.) Mr. O'Neill (Pn.) said that gentlemen
might call this Infamy, but it they could
call the roll of the dead In Arlington there
was not one soldier who would not respond
in favor ot the measure. This was not an
interference with the family ot Gen. Grant.
To apeak ot it in that way was begging the
question. Mr. Bingham (Pa.) said that ho
would bo unjust to his state and to his as
sociates during the war if he did not pro
nounce his condemnation ot some of tho
statemcnU mndc It was true that dnrlng
the fearful days ot Gettysburg the New
York regiments bad fought gallantly, but
in doing so thoy had fought for Now York
as well as for Pennsylvania. He regretted
that the Johnstown disaster had been put
forward as a reason why New York had
not raised a great sum ot money to com
plete the Grant monument.
Mr. Cannon (111.) was In favor of placing
Gen. Grant's remains at some place where
tbe greatest number of the American peo
ple could most readily visit the last resting
place of the great commander. He believed
that Arlington was tho best place for the
remains of Gen. Grant to rest,
Mr. Fnrqnhar (N. Y.) protested against
tbe transfer of Gen. Grant's remains as a
Republican representative, as a personal
friend of Geu, Grant and family nnd as a
soldier of the republic The trouble with
tbe New York monument was that the
committee was too respectable to raise the
money. He wanted New York to recast

PRESIDENT POLK TALKS.
The Alliance Will Annihilate
WHAT THE FARMERS ARE AFTER.
The Sub-Treasury Scheme Is a Popular
Oue Dealing in Futures Disapproved
Of A Third Party Inevitable Unions
Other Parties Do aa the Farmers Desire.
OCALA, Flo., Dec 0. Having reiterated
the St. Louts platform the Farmers' Alli
ance convention formulated tho demands
through which they expect to see those
privileges brought Into practice Among
the most important features of tho de
mands are the abolition of national banks,
the adoption of the sub-treasury scheme,
the prevention of dealing in futures on agri
cultural and mechanical productions and
tariff reform. The people who have been
trying to manipulate tholonvention for a
modification ot the demands to suit the
Democratic party made a hard and shrewd
fight, but early yesterday it became patent
that the delegates bad awakened to tbe fact
that there was something in the wind and
that they were defented. Tbe alliance now
stands free from party entanglements of
any kind and Is practically united.
A Third Party Inevitable.
President Polk does not believe either
ot tho old parties has attempted to shape
the policy of the alliance. He said today:
"If the Democrats In the Fifty-second con'
gress do not manifest a willingness to
grant our demands a third party is In
evitable and the southern Democratic alli
ance men will be in. They are determined
to gain the ends they are striving for nnd
they will smash any party which opposes
No Sign of Weakening.
Speaking ot the discussion today he said:
"We reiterated every one of our demands
nnd there wero only three votes against
the tluuncml plan. Tbe question was dis
cussed in every possible bearing for four
hours and there was no sign ot weakening
in the ranks.
"Yes, It is true that tht, sub-treasury plan
docs not contain the oO per cent, clause.
but It returns tbe vital principles of loans
on farm products. It Is true, too, that the
demand for tbe government of railroads Is
made conditional Instead of peremptory,
but that was by no means tho result of
The Ulalue Story Unimportant

edges that be called at Blaine's house.
He says he was asked to call by Col. Rich
ard Illnton, who asked him if he would
not like to be Introduced to Blaine. The
interview, however, he says, never took
place, and be has never spoken to Mr.
The Sub-Treasury- Scheme Discussed.
The sub-treasury scheme was discussed
at length by tbe convention. Mr. Louks,
of boutb Dakota, moved to make the sub
treasury schemo apply to all merchantable
products Instead of those relating to the
farmer alone. Mr. Perdue, of Texas, sug
gested that Louks' amendment protected
the manufacturing Interests, which were
amply able to protect themselves.
Mr. Hall, ot Missouri, made a stronc
speech against the whole scheme of amend
ment. Ilia principal objection to the sub-
treasury scheme was that it was class legis
lation of tbe most objectionable type. Congressman-elect
Jerry Sampson, of Kansas,
strongly favored the measure. Kansas
raised lost year, be said, a big corn crop,
Which was sold at less than fourteen cents
a bushel, Chicago grain gamblers raised
the price there to forty-five cents. If the
government bad protected tbe farmers as
it had other classes thef armors could have
had the forty-five cents. It would have
made a illllereuco of fWJ.000.000. Half of
this could have gone to pay mortgages and
the other to permit tbe United States farm
ers to live like human beings.
Mr. Clark, pf Texas, denied that the sub
treasury scheme was class legislation or
for tbe farmers alone. It was simply a
plan to change the method of Issuing cur
rency. A Flexible Currency Wanted.
Mr. Livingston, ot Georgia, tbe "daddy"
ot tbe scheme, as be says, objected very
strongly to the proposition to loan money
on land. The great desideratum was to
have a flexible currency which would be
governed by the law of supply and demand.
Based on land the currency would remain
fixed because land stays. Based on com
modities it would be pleuty only when
needed, because pig irou and corn come
and go. Then as soon as you make land
the basis ot currency tbe money loaners
will simply buy laud, coutrol the curroncy
and leave us as badly oft as ever.
Mr. Carskadou, of West Virginia, said
the government had no right to take his
property from one man not in fault and
try to make up the wants of others. It
you reduce the value of the currency ot tho
country you will reduce the values ot all
property to the same level.
An attempt to reconsider the action on
the " force" bill came up, but tbe motion

When the firemen arrived ladders wero

story, and to the roof of the noxt building,

down in safety, and taken to Alderman
McKenna's office nnd to the bouses ot peo

A sight that filled tho spectators with
horror was a woman and two babies nt a

At the first alarm Janitor Irwin ran
