Dtrm.t.v , Nov. 2(5 ( , fSpcdnl Cablegram to
TUB Br.n.l The Freeman's Journal , in n
leading article ou Gladstone's letter , says :
" "Ulndstonc , in his letter to Morley In regard
to Parnell's ' position , nssumei that the Irish
jiart.v Is a portion of the liberal party and
that the latter party Is qualified to depose :
tholrlth leader or veto his net. Tlio principle
of Independent opposition would bo Isolated
nnd broken down If this power of veto is ad
mitted.Vo \ must never forget thnt Glad
stone came to I'arncll , and that I'arncll did
not go lo Gladstone. It t6ok many years of
independent opposition from Pnrnoll and the
Pnrnctliloa to convoy Gladstone nnd his party
to home rulo. How can the liberals return to
power or retain ill Can they get It without
the Irish vote ! If I'arncll remained nt the
head of a loyal and homogeneous party num
bering eighty-five members , he ronld compel
Gladstone or nny other liberal leader to sub
mit to the Irish lenders. "
IJiThoKxpress says : "Jt will bo interesting
to observe ho\v the liberals will behave when
I'arncll tramples urtputhom In tlio innnnorin
which Ira Is nccustumod to trample upon his
Irish followers. "
TholCxpross says that the measures adopted
by the government to relieve tlio distress In
the western part of Ireland arising from the
failure of tlio potato crop will bo put into
operation before Christina1 ; .

LOMXXV , Nov. SO. Purncll has declined to
convene u meeting of the nationalist mem
bers of the commons nt the request of thirty-
eight Parnellitcs , dosplto the fact that the
rules of the party provide for the calling of n
meeting when twenty members sign
such n request. Several Parneliite members
complain thnt they were not informed of nil
the facts in connection with Gladstone's uttl-
iude'lownrd Paruoll , which was set forth In
Hho former's ' letter to .Morley. when they
voted yesterday to retain Paracll as leader of
the Irish party. The majority of the nation
alists present at the meeting last
evening of the Pamcllitc members
of the commons believed that If Gladstone's
, letter to Morlqy had been read nttho morning
meeting the result on the motion to retain
Parnoll in the leadership would hnvo been
different. Gladstone and Mat-ley hndn con
ference this forenoon to consider the situa
tion arising from the ro-clcctlonof Parnelt.
Although last night Parncll refused to call
n inciting of the Irish members of congress ,
n meeting was held today , nt which ho pro-
fildod , There was a great divergence of
1 opinion manifested throughout the discussion ,
but no definite action was * agreed upon , Tha
meeting adjourned to 5 o'clock this cvcninir.
Pnrnoll's speech nt the opening of the
.meeting gave no indication that ho Intended
c lo alter his decision to retain the leadership.
viMolan wns the only member present who
favored Parnell's retention of office. Me-
, Carthy , whose frequent allusions to Parnell's
great sacrifices for tbn Irish cause , applauded
and snid he hoped that after duo considera
tion 1'arnell would see his way to retire for
the present nnd save the sacred cause of
"Irish Independence. Sexton said he regretted
Gladstone's views being withheld yesterday.
Ho sympathetically appealed to Parnel
to reconsider" his position. The qucs-
. tlon hud assumed a now phase
, since the publication of Gladstone's ' letter.
Personal consideration must be sacrificed for
Vho sake of the cause. Parncll maintained
Ills attlUido of reserve throughout the meet
ing. It was hoped a cabin from delegates in
jVmeiica would reach London before ihe
meeting adjourned , but none was rceolvcd.
"A decision to reassemble nt f > o'clock was
caused by the hope that the dispatch would
.arrive in the Interval. It was n foregone
conclusion in the lobby that the meeting
must result in Parnell's resignation. The na
tionalist members met in the afternoon but
adjourned until "Monday without taking any
dell nlte action.

Loxnox , Nov. 20. [ Special Cablegram to
THE Bnc.-p-Tlio | Star ( homo rule ) says :
"Gladstone's letter was designed to bo read
at tho. ParnoUlto meeting held yesterday at
Which It was voted to retain Parnoll m the
leadership of the party , Somehow the
. ' letterwas not read. Justin McCarthy had
' 'boon Instructed to inform Parnull of Glad-
-'itono'g opinion that a chaugo'in tlio leader
ship of tbo Irish party was csscntltd ,
fcut in the haste of I'arnull's '
4 arrival Mr. Gladstone's opinion was
, ot fully Impressed upon him. Parnell's sud-
1 .duu presence , his past services , the outsdo
cruel talk against him nnd the instinctive
Irish loyalty prevailed over the duties of the
Parnellitcs as to the necessity of the sltuu-
t tlou. Tim eyes of the party are now opened
> to thohiunlflcmu-o of the affair in England ,
which is nothing loss than whether homo
rule will be passed upon nt the
'next general election or bo indefi
nitely shelved. Had tlio Parncllitos
.liuown this they couldlinvo uomo to but ono
( Conclusion. We believe thov will como to it

.liiivo no al crnntivo. but to pass a resolution
'that' will cnnblo Gladstone to give the ro-
mahulor of his life ib their cause ,
No Holier Yet.
Loxnox. Nov. 20 , Today's events have
relieved the tension , but rather accentuated
the complications of the situation. Confcr-
ciicos ncld today prove n gwat divergence of
-opinion exists but shows that unless a vote
lot "no confidence' ' Is passed by his followers
Parncll will not abdicate. The mooting this
afternoon adjourned after nearly three hours
Bpeochmaklng in order to obtain the views of
lahsont members of the party. When the
.party reassembles Monday it Is probable Par-
uell will again bo urged to retire by ono sen-
tlon of supporters , but if u vote is taken it is
'expected ' a Jargo majority'will ' be on his side.
The Wolsii members of the party today re-
Jiolvcd tnnt the retention of Parnoll would
cnuso the postponoment'of homo rule beyond
the span of Gla'dstonu's publlo llfo and'tlioy
uro move determined than over to rally to

A Flutter in Chicago.
CIIICAOO , Nov. 20. | Special Telegram to
'Tins BEE. ) Quito a tlutterwas caused In
if Ish-Amorican circles In Chicago today by
the publication of Mr. Gladstone's letter to
Mr. Morley concerning the leaaorship of
'Parnell. It wns generally felt that the posi
tion taken by Gladstone .practically puts an
mnd to Pamell's usefulness In public life for
the present , but at the saino time there was
an undercurrent of belief that ho would con
tinue to l > o the chief guide of the parliamen
tary party in a secret way and would live to
BCO his offcnso condoned by all classes of people -
, plo mid eventually enjoy a roturu to publlo
favor. Interviews with Irish-Amorlcaus of
national imputation on the advisability of
'Parnell's retirement , elicited the following
i&cntlmenU :
Hon.V. . J. Hynes I think that the scntl-
monts of Olnastono and his followers ought

Mono would ho compelled to do what ho has
.done. As national results must always come
Irom a oompromUo of opposite parties , I
'think It would bu unwUo for the Irish party
to clash with Mr. Gladstone on this question.
The outcome \vlll ho that for a few months
Mr. PurneU will give private advice to the

CIIICAOQ , Nov. 20. [ Special Tclotjrain
to THE Bcc.1 Tno great packers of Chicago
are elated , at the decision of the federal court
at St. Paul , declaring unconstitutional the
Miniicsata law prohibiting tbo sale of
oleomargarine. W. J. Qulnn , attorney for
Armour & Co. , today said :
"That decision was fully expected. It in
fact only reaffirms the principle laid down
heretofore by "both state and federal courts
that state-laws cannot prohibit interstate
commerce. Berne time ago a number of states
passed laws prohibiting the sale of dressed
meats taken from carcasses that had not
been inspected alive within the bounderies of
said states. The United States supreme
court declared those laws unconstitutional
and tlio principle involved was the same as in
the present case. "
"What other states will this discussion
"Tho other states having prohibiting laws
are Maine , Vermont , Pennsylvania , Delaware
and Maryland. The same principle applies to
all of them , and when this decision is ufllrmed
by the United States supreme court tbo efftjct
will bo to open those states to the saleof
oleomargarine. Of course the lmmcdlntcrc-
suit of tlio decision will bo to open the mar'Ket

WAiit.\ i ) N' , D. C. , Nov . W. I
Speaker Heed , alter a consultation with
Mr. MdClnley , Mr. Cannon nnd other load
ing members of the bouse , has laid out the
work of the session. Jt Includes besides the
regular nppropriation bills the ronpportlon-
inent bill ; the circuit court bill , which re
lieves the supreme court nnd which caiao
buck to the house after being amended by the
senate , ntid a bill for Iho relief for the ship
ping of the country. Whether thh will ho
senator Frye's bill for mail subsidies between
Central mid South America or the Fnrgulmr
bill giving n bountv of Hi ) cents n ton upon all
shipping is a question. It has been decided
not to nttcmpt to pass nny moro general JKJH-
slon bills in this congress , but
the prisoners of war pension bill
ia likely to receive some attention. This
is the republican programme In the house
nnd the democrats will make no objection to
U except so far ns the reapportionment bill Is
coriccrncd. That they will never tilloiv to
pass , Jlrjt , because they nro opposed on gen
eral principles to letting tbo republicans make
the rearportionmciit , second , because they
will hn\o control of the house of representa
tives nc\t year and will have an opportunity
to innlto the rcapportlonment themselves ,
and third , because they lack , or claim to Jack ,
confidence in the census. The republicans
will doubtless make n stout light for their
bill , hut the democrats can defeat it by fllll-
bustering oven if their other nrgumeiits do
not hold. Their first , act will bo to causa nn .
investlpition of the census , and they will not i
permit the bill to bo considered until the com
mittee that mikes such an investigation bus
submitted its report. Again they have a long
line of precedents to sustain them. No con
gress ever pissed a re-apportionment bill nt
the session immediately following n census. |
A year has always elapsed before such lopis- '
lation und to-push it through this time will' '
bo forcing mi issno that the republicans can
not very well sustain. In fact the democrats
will not permit it.
One of the leaders of that party said today '
that Speaker Reed was treated with great
toleration during the last session but he
would not bo treated with as much during1
the next. If he attempts to inako the same
arbitrary rulings , and if ropubllcansshowthc
same disposition to cut off debate on important - ,
ant measures , this gentleman says there will'
be a disturbance such ns wns never seen in
the house of representatives be
fore. It has been disclosed recent
ly that Senator Gorman , Uopreseututlves
Crisp , Ilreckinridgo nndTlower and enD or
two other cool-hauled men prevented a riot
during the consideration nf tbo contested
election cases last session. Bynum oflndlana
Hogcrsof .Arkansas. Kflgoro of Texas and
oipo or two other southerners were already to
use violence with the sx | > alar and drag , him
from his chalrwheuevoranexcuse wns offered
them. The gentlemen named , reullzvng the
effect of such nn incident upon the country
stepped in and by their persuasion nrovcntod
the plot from being carried out. U'ho demo
crats are feeling so cocky aad Independent
that it will be difficult to prevent a racket of
this kind if occasion ofTers during the com
ing session. In the Keed-McKinloy pro-
-gramme there is no provision made for th
p.issago of a silver bill , but it is highly prob
able that the silver leaders on the republican
side of tlio house will join those
who believe with them ou the democratic
side in order to secure free coinage ledsla-
tion. It is Ix-lieveil that Senator Stewart
will open the campaign immediately upon
the meeting of congress by introducing a free
coinage bill in the scuata and demanding un
immediate vote on it. If such a bill evergets
through the senalo it will bo impossible to
prevent Its passage by the house.
During the last session , when Speaker
Heed's power was at its best , It was with
great difliculty that the free coinage bill ,
which was pissed by the senate by a combina
tion between a few republicans and the dem
ocrats , was kept from going through itho
houso. Mr. Reed then threw his bulky form
in tlio xvny .and .members of bis party did not
euro to attempt to ndu over him , In vleiv of
the result of the election and the wild demand
for more money that -being tnade , by the
farmers it is not improbable that the situa
tion may become more serious this snssion .for
those who think the silver busiucss might bo
earned too far by his most determined
methods. It may not bo possible for Mr.
Reed to prevent the passage of n free coin-
aeo bill. The contemplation of the possi
bilities nnd probabilities of the case is suld to
Klvo the president considerable 'anxiety ' nnd
hois urging the leaders to do what they can
to keep the matter from coming up for dis
cussion. It is intimated that ho will have
something to sa.v on the subject of sjlvor in
his message , to discourage any further
meddling with the matter until the
law passed nt the last session has
been given a longer trial. One thing
counted on In forcing the lighting on the
election And the apportionment bills is thnt
there will bo no timo'for tbo silver question
to uonioup , but it is possible thnt the calcu
lations on this line may miscarry. There
\\lll probably 'bo an attempt made by the
democrats to reach nn agreement with'tho '
silver republicans lor the pnssagn of u
free coinage bill andtho defeat of the elec
tions bill. Sneaker Uucd and the president
had a long talk tins afternoon , at which ttioy
fully discussed matters of party policy.
The rally in the price ot silver in the Now
York market within the past few days has
set the silver uiun to worklug hard on the
passage of n free coinage hillat this session.
There are a half do/on loaders hero in
town at the present moment and they are
working tin active campaign In the interest of
the unlimited coinage of silver. It is under
stood that the-president in lim forthcoming
message to congress takosrtha ground that no
further legislation on this subject should bo
cnaotcd by the present congress , and it is
thought by some of the eastern men that any
successful attempt in this direction will bo
impossible. Notwithstanding this fueling ,
however , such men us A. J. "Warner of Ohio
and others who are in tbo advance rank of
pro-sllvcritcs think Unit a determined effort
in this direction will moot with success. The
senate Is ready to pass a free coinage bill nnd
there nro probnbly enough men In the house
In favor of the idea to put a bill through if it
can only bo reached , and the only question at
Usuo therefore is whether or uot the oppor-
tuultity will bo afforded for carrying out the
programme. PJUIIIV S. HEATH.

Since the rccfcnt political cyclone struck
N'obraslta Uonfnlissman Council bus been devoting -
voting more tlnw und iittoutloii to legal mat

return to Omalm at the close of the present

this In view ho has formoil a partnership
with Judge Ivcs nnd established ofllcos In the
.New York Llfo building.As bo wns auout
leaving for Washington yesterday ufturnoon
n UEIJ reporter called nt his now law oftlms
for tht ) purpose of learning his views of the
situation , In response to nn inquiry ( is to
how ho was feeling since emerging from the
recent political blizzard ho answered ,
"All right , ncrer bettor In my
life. 1 nm moro tlnn * reconciled
to the retirement from nubile service now
awaiting me. While , nt llrst , somewhat sur
prised , If not disappointed nt tlio ro.tult of the

Is the best thing could Imvo happened

tx ) able to carry forward to completion n num
ber of measures 1 hud In the interest of
Onmtiu antt ether cities in tbo district 1 have
hnd the lionor for ono time to represent. I
fear thnt during Iho next three months but
little will bo accomplished in the way of
legislation or securing appropriations. Dur
ing tbo pant session I have done a good deal
of hard work with the view of securing fa vor-
abloactlon on certain bills In which my con
stituents nro greatly Interested. 1 now return
to Washington to do the beat 1 cnn in the
brief tune of scn'lco now bcforo inu. Tlic
outlook for accomplishing-much this winter
Is not very encouraging. Iu the llrst place ,
ns I HOT not reflected 1 nm not iu u position
to bank ou future extension of favors in con
sideration of favor.3 received. j
In the second place , it loolcsns though every
possible menus of obstruction will be adopted
to prevent legislation during the remaining i
nlndty days of this congress , nud It Is doubt
ful if nnr but appropriation bills will
'bo passed. " '
"Then. " said the reporter , "yon do uot have
much hopes of securing favorable action on k
the mint bill or postofflco appropriation billf" ,
" .No , 1 am not ovcr-conuilcnt of success ,
but 1 propose to do the best I can. I have already - .
ready secured a good many pledges of support - '
port to the mint und postoBlco Rills , nnd I
still have some hopes of success. "
Upon being asked as to whul ho attributed
his defeat. Mr. Council said : .
"Oh , it is hard to say what iu particular '
caused it. Tills year bus been a disastrous '
one for republicans nil along tbo line. So far
