Political Circles In England Again Agi
tated by Reports Concerning the Grand
Old Man riacards .Demanding Am
nesty For Political Prisoners.
London, Feb 27. The political world
is onco more greatly agitated by renewed
nmors to the effect that Mr. Gladstone
iutends to retire from office.
The latest scare news is furnished by
the Edinburgh Evening News, which an
nounces upon what it classes as reliable
authority the fact that Mr. Gladstone
has resigned the premiership, but. Tho
Evening News adds, he will retain his
seat in the cabinet, and will also con
tinue to represent Midlothian in the
house of commons.
Naturally this report, apparently based
on something more than mere political
rumor, has caused the greatest excite
ment in political circles and is causing a
great and hurried exchange of telegrams
between the great leaders and their inti
mate advisers. Strange to say after so
many denials and after such a number
of auards c have been put in circulation
in connection with the grand old man
the present report that he has actually
tendered his resignation, or that he in
tends to take such action during the
present week, is obtaining general cred
ence Inquiries made hastily, in official
circles shortly after The Evening News
of Edinburgh circulated its report, shows
that there are many people who believe
the report is undoubtedly based on facts.
It is stated that tho return of the Earl
of Eosebery was due to an important
announcement made by Mr. Gladstone
to one of his cabinet ministers, and it is
saidthat Jhis annoiiiicement practically
amounted to Restatement that he had de
cided to forward his resignation to her
In view of the many previous reports
or a similar nature which have been cir
culated i:i connection with Mr. Glad
stone, there are many people who believe
that there is no more truth in the present
rumor than there has been in other simi
lar reports. But people aro reminding
each other of Mr. Gladstones great age,
his failing eyesight and of the
bitter attacks made upon him by
newspapers, which had previously warm
ly supported him, as a result of his fail
ure to appeal to the sympathies of those
who were clamoring for the abolition of
the house of lords by making a deter
mined attack upon that institution when
the amendments of the peers to the pop
ular employers' liability bill and to the
parish councils bill were taken up in the
house of commons.
. Earl Spencer His Successor.
The Evening News this af temoon say3
that the Earl of Rcseberry has been
offered the premiership and that he has
declined it. Tho same paper says that
the premiership was later offered to Earl
Spencer, the first lord of the admiralty,
and that he accepted it. In conclusion
The Evening News says that Mr. Glad
stone's resignation goes into effect Easter.
Placards Distributed In Cork Demanding
Amnestj For Political Prisoners.
Cork, Feb. 27. In connection with
the visit of the Rt. Hon. John Morley,
chief Jsecretary for Ireland, to this coun
try, it will be remembered Mr. Morley
recently refused to receive a delegation
of evicted tenants on the ground that the
government had decided to introduce a
reinstatement bill during the next session
of parliament, and the Evicted Tenants'
association of this city resolved to return
to the principles of the Land League and,
in addition, appointed a vigilance com
mittee to render inore effective the boy
cotting of land grabbers. Yesterday
green placards were extensively posted
throughout the city by the Fenian broth
erhood. These placards were headed
with the word, in large type, "Amnesty."
The placards declare that Daly and
others are slowly dying in British prisons
and that if Mr. Morley is not to ba
classed as a British statesman who, "for
years has cajoled us with promises, we
ask the fullfillment of his promise to
release the political prisoners. France
and the United States have granted am
nesty to political prisoners shall Eng
land be tho only nation in the world to
refuse? Speak John Morley, Ireland do
mauds an answer."

Congressmen Pence and Fithlan Both Made
Sensational Speeches.
Washington, Feb. 20. The session of
the senate Tuesday was devoid of special
interest. Senator Daniel concluded his
speech on tho Hawaiian question and
while supporting warmly tho course that
has been followed by the administration,
he declared that now there was nothing
but to recognize the new government
and wish it God speed. After Senator
Daniel's speech, the bill for additional
printing office facilities was discussed. I
Washington, Feb. 20. Tho deadlock
on the Bland seigniorage bill was not
broken in the house Tuesday. Roll call
followed roll call until 4 o'clock, when,
it being apparent Mr. Bland could not
muster a quorum on his proposition, he
moved an adjournment.
Washington, Feb. 21. The tariff
question came up in quite an unexpected
way in the senate Wednesday and for
two hours it held the floor to the exclu
sion of all other business. The matter
was indirectly alluded to by Senator
Voorhees, who arose to a question of
privilege to deny a newspaper statement
indicating the Democratic members of
the finance committee were submitting
to the president's dictations in matters re
lating to th9 tariff bill. After the denial
by Senator Voorhees, Senator Chandler
precipitated the discussion of the day by
an inquiry as to the part that Senator
Mills is performing in the consideration
of the bill in committee, andwhether he
is still acting as the proxy of Senator Mc
Pherson since the latter's return to the
city. Senator Voorhees at first requested
Senator Chandler to read The Record for
his information, but when the New
Hampshire senator insisted upon a direct
answer, Senator Voorhees finally declared
it was no business of the Eenator how
the finance committee considered the bill.
This provoked an era of acrimony and
for the next hour senatorial courtesy had
no place in the senate. Many senators
accused each other of unworthy acts and
Senator Vest finally quoted from the
record in an attempt to prove that Sena
tor Chandler had promised to take care
of certain officials in the southern states
in 187G if they would decide against the
Democrats and in favor of Hayes for
the presidency. The controversy was
finally brought to a close by Senator Mc
Pherson and Senator Mills both explain
ing their positions.
Washington, Feb. 21. Sergeant-at-Arms
Snow of the house arrested several
members on tho floor of the house for
having absented themselves from the ses
sion. The arrest of members on the floor
is almost without precedent. Speaker
Crisp has directed the sergeant-at-arms
to execute the warrant of arrest without
reference to the place where members are.
Washington, Feb. 22. Washington's
birthday session of the house was marked
by the most turbulent and disorderly
scenes of the year. Mr. Bland, clinging
to the idea he could obtain a quorum for
his motion to close debate on the seign
iorage bill and nettled hy his continued
failure for the past week, refused to al
low the house to adjourn over the na
tional holiday. When the house met
Thursday morning, however, although
he still declined to entertain any proposi
tion to compromise with the opponents
of the measure, upon the representations
of certain western representatives that
they would cease filibustering and sup
port the measure if he would give
additional time for debate, he moved
that the debate continue until Saturday,
but he did not get a vote on his amended
Washington, Feb. 23. The members
of the house under arrest were finail
discharged from custody Friday by dis
pensing with further proceedings under
the call. It required four hours to ac
complish this, and although the scenes of
disorderly turbulence which character
ized Thursday's proceedings were not re
peated the proceedings were fully as in
teresting. The Democrats were evidently
very anxious when the house met to ex
tricate themselves from, the complica
tions arising from the wholesale arrest of
members, but by flank movements, tho
Republicans succeeded in preventing this
until the whole situation was thoroughly
vcntilated. Perhaps the most interesting
feature of the day, barring Bland's bitter
phillipic against the filibustering Demo
crats, was the verbal duel between Mr.
Reed and Mr. Turner over the question
of a quorum a question just now of
preeminent impoi-tance in house circles.
Washington, Feb. 24. The house was
again without a quorum on the Bland
Washington, Feb. 26. The proceed
ngs in the house Monday were full of
exciting incidents. Mr. Bland being un
able to secure a quorum, concluded to
allow the debate on the bill to proceed
at the same time declaring that he would
return to the assault Tuesday. Two sen
sational speeches followed, one hy Mr.
Pnce (Colo.), who denounced the Re
publicans for submitting to the crack of
ex-Speaker Reed's whip and warned him
that if the election of tho president was
thrown into the house in 1890 he would re
new his filibustering, and the other by
Mr. Fithian (Ills.), who condemned in
the severest terms the action of his Dem
ocratic colleagues who were taking part
in the filibuster. Toward the close of
the session Mr. Pence's reflection on
Messrs. Pickler nnd Ellis (Or.) drew forth
from them a statement which Mr. Pence
characterized as "absolutely untrue."
He was twice called to order and the
house by a vote refused to allow him to
proceed. It is probable Mr. Pence's
speech will bo the reason of further com
ment. Washington, Feb. 26. The senate
held but a short session Monday in order
to give the Democrats an opportunity aft
erwards to continue the caucus begun in
the morning. Mr. Morgan, chairman of
the committee on foreign relations, pre
sented the report on Hawaiian investiga
tion, and Mr. Frye (Me.) gave notice tliat
on Wednesday he would address the sen
ate on that subject. In the report of
fered" by Mr. Morgan, he indorses all the
actions of Minister Stevens except hi3
declaration of a protectorate by the
United States over Hawaii.
