SPENCEft HIS SUCCESSOR 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 CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS. flrV - WILLIAM E. GLADSTONE. 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 majesty. 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. ASK MOItliEY TO DECLARE IIIMSEI.F. 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 proposition. 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 bill. 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. Police Judge Fined. Sioux City, Feb. 27. The police raided a cocking main and captured about thirty men, among whom was W. B. Russell, judge of the Yankton police court, who acknowledges ownership of four of the birds.
