llotli Parnrll and Gladstone nro Han
dled Without Gloves.
I.oviiov , Nov. 23. It was reported that the
Gladstone counter manifesto would comment
nt great length on matter. The Post snvs
not n single point of the sordid conspiracy
has been omitted from the story of the homo
rule compact for the llrst time brought to
light. The bomb has been exploded In anger
nnd Parnell turns ngalnst Ins fellow conspir
ators to save his own political life. The
manifesto has lendeicd the prospects for
homo rule worse than nt any lime since 18b5.
The Dally News says : To Parnell's ex
cited feelings every man's hand seems against
him nnd he set his hand ngnlnst eiery man.
This Is the last fatal dls-scrvico which oblit
erates many If not all hU incomparable ser
vice. The News appeals to the Iiish clergy
and people not to allow Parncll to drng down
the homo rule cause In his own fall by a be
lief In his serious misapprehensions of their
English fi lends.
Tlio Chronicle says : Pnrncll's most pow
erful blow Is the revelation of the abject par
alysis of the Glaustonlan party over the land
( jdostion mid Moiley's confession of their in
ability to assist the sufferers fiom the plan of
campaign. The manifesto clearly shows that
Painell Is not a person with whom nny
statesman cnn venture to hold confidential re
lations. Irish ingratitude in politics is pro
verbial , but never before was It avowed with
such cold , calculating cynicism.
The Standard suvs : The manifesto is damaging to the credit of Gladstone
and Morley as straightforward statesmen.
No English politician will ever trust Parnell
again , but ho has chosen the right line to win
back the ilnnnrial regard of Irishmen.
The Times snjs : The manifesto shivers
forever the supposition that Pnrnell can over
attain boticated us a trustworthy friend or
honorable foe. It is probably the most
shameless document the English public life
has seen since the days of the revolution.
The Times thinks however It will piobnhly
effect its purpose and refers to the severity
of the blow inflicted ou Gladstone's Imprae-
thnblo schemes.
In case the Irish nationalist members nt
the meeting on Monday favor Parncll , a
movement will immediately bo started among
the liberals to give Kngllsh reforms preco-
dnncoover homo rule , nnd a meeting toad-
vocato reverting to the programme of 18b5
will bo summoned.

LONPOV , Nov. 28. ParnelPs manifesto to
the Irish people , which was issued tonight ,
Is very lengthy. IIo begins by saying :
"The integrity and Independence of a sec
tion of the Irish parliamentary party having
been apparently snppid and destroyed by
wirepullers of the liberal party , it has be
come necessary for me as tdo leader of tlio
Irish party to take counsel with you , npd
having given you tbo knowledge whlcii is In
my possession , ask j our Judgment upon a
matter which now solely devolves upon you
to decide. A loiter from Gladstone to Mr.
Morley , written for the purpose of influenc
ing the decision of the Irish party in their
choice of a leader , and claiming for the liber
als utul their leaders the right of vote upon
the choice is the immediate cause of
this address , the purpose of which
is to remind you and your parliamentary rep
resentatives that Ireland considers the inde
pendence of her party ns her only safeguard
within tbo constitution nnd above and bov end
all other considerations whatever. The
threat in that letter , repented so Insolently on
many platforms and hi numerous newspapers ,
compels mo to put before you information
which until now has boon bololy in my pos-
esslon , nnd which will unable you to under
land a measure of the loss with which you
ro threatened unless you consent to throw
mo to the English wolves now howling for
: iy destruction , "
Parncll then tells how nt Hawardcn , last
November ho received from Gladstone the
utalls of that gentleman's and his col-
cogues' propqsal with regard to homo rule
.n . the event of tlio next general election
nvorlng the liberal party. Upon tbo sub-
'ct of the retention of Irish mem-
icrs in the imperial parliament Glad-
tone told him in order to conciliate
English public opinion it would bo iieccssarv
M reduce Irish representation from 10J to Hi
Upon tbo settlement of tbo land question
Gladstone intimated that while ho would re-
aew his attempt to settle the matter by im
erial legislation on the lines of the land pur
chase bill of IbSO ho would not undertake to
[ jut any pressure upon bis own side. In other
words , that the Irish leglslntuio was not to
bo given the power of solving agrarian
liniculttcs. With regard to the control of
.ho Iiish constabulary it was stated by Glad-
itono that in view of the necessity of concili
ating English public opinion it would bo
uecessarv to leave this force to the appoint
ment of its ollicors under control of Imperial
authority for nn indefinite period , whllo
funds for its inalntulnanco would bo coinpul-
sorilv provided out of Irish revenue. A per
iod of ten or ttttlvo years was suggested as
ttie limit of tlmo during uhicli the appoint
ment of judges and resident magistrates
should bo retained in the hands of the imper
ial authorities.
Passing to bis own expressions on these
points which , Parncll says , represent bis
views then nnd now , with regard to tbo re
tention of Irish members , ho holds that with
the concession of full powers to an Irish leg
islature equivalent to those enjoyed by a
state of the American union , the number and
position of members so retained would bc-
cotuo n question or Imperial concei n and not
picsslngor immediate importance for tbo in
terests of Ireland ; but that with the im
portant and all-engrossing subjects of agrar
ian reform , constabulary control and Judici
ary appointments left either under Imperial
control or totally unprovided for. it would bo
the height of madness for any Iiish leader to
imitateGrattan's example nnd consent to dis
band an army which had cleared the way to
"I further undertook to use every legitimate
influence to reconcile Irish public opinion to
the gradual coming into force of new privi
leges and the postponements necessary for
English opinion with regard to constabulary
control and judicial appointments , but I
strongly dissented fiom the proposed reduc
tion of the number of me in be is during the
interval of probation and pointed to the ab
sence of any suitable prospect of land settle
ment by cither paihumciit as a constitutional
and overwhelming drag upon the prospects of
permanent peace and prosperity In Ireland. "
At the conclusion of the interview , Pnniell
was-informed that , pending the general elec
tion , Gladstone and his colleagues had agreed
that silence should bo preserved with regard
to these points of difference. The absence of
any provision for the settlement of the
agrarian question ; of any policy on the part
of the liberal leaders , Pnrnell says , filled him
with concern and apprehension. On the In
troduction of the land purchase bill bv the
government at the commencement of last
session , Morley conferred with him , and hav
ing regard to the avowed absence of any
policy on tbo pait of the liberals , Parnell
strongly advised Morley neruinst any direct
challenge of the pilnciplc of stnto aid in land
purchase and that they should direct their
efforts on the second rending to the assertion
of ttie principle of local control. In this
Morley agreed with him , but was at the same
time hampered by the oxttcino section of his
party , led by Lubouchero , and in a subse
quent Interview impressed upon Pnrnoll the
necessity of meeting the second reading of
the bill with a direct negative and usked him
to undertake thu motion.
"I agreed on condition that I was not to at
tack the principle of measure but confine my
self to nrciitlclsm of details. I think , " says
Parnell , "this was false strategy , but it was
strategy adopted out of rcgnid to English
piojudlccs and radical peculiarities. I did
the best possible under the circumstances mid
several days' debate on tlyi second reading
contrasts favorably with Lnbouchcro's recent
abortive attempt to intoiposo a direct
negative to the llrst reading of u similar bill
jostcrday. "
Just before the commencement of this ses
sion Parnell bed another Interview with
Morley and Impressed upon him the policy of
the obllquo method of procedure with refer
ence to tuo land purchase , and the necessity
nnd importance of providing for the question
of local control and limitation in the applica
tion of funds.
"Ho agreed with mo , " says Pornoll , "nnd I
offered to move on the lirst reading of the
bill un amendment in favor of this local con
trol , advising him , if this was i ejected , it
might be loft to the radicals on a second read
ing to OJ > IH > SC the principle of thu nicn.s-
uro. I loft Morley under the impres
sion that this would fall to my duty ,
but In addition ho made a remarkable pro
posal. Kcfcrring to tbo probable approach
ing victory of the liberals , ho suggested some
considerations ns to the future of the Irish
party and asked me whether I would bo will
ing to assume the cilice of chief secretary for
Ireland , or whether I would allow another
member of my party to take the position. He
also nut before mo the desirability
of tilling ono of the law oflloos of the
crown in Ireland by a legal meniboi
of my party. 1 told him , amazed us I was at t
the proposal , that I could not agree to forfeit t
It any way the independence of the party 01
Itu members ; thntthelrlsb people had trusted
mo because they believed : the declaration
which I made at Cork In 18M ) represented my
conviction and tbat I would on no uccounl
depart from It.
"I consider that Mr. Morloy's proposal , "
continued Mr. Parnell , "that wo should allow
ourselves to bo absorbed Into Kngllsh poll1
tics , was one based upon nn entire miscon
ceptlonofour position , In conclusion Mr ,
Morley directed my attention to the plan 01
the campaign. Ho said It would be ImposslbU
for the liberal party when It attalnei
power to do nnjthing for these evictee
tenants by direct action nnd it would also 1 *
for the Irish parliament , uudci
the powers conferred , 2) , do anything for
them , nnd Hinging uphla hands with a
gesture ot despair ho exclaimed : 'Having
bcca In Tlppcrary I do not , know what to pro
pose.1 I told ultn this question
was n limited opo ; funds would
bo available froraf' America nnd
elsewhere for the suuport of those tenants M
long as necessary nnd this dlftlctnty should
not bo illow od to interfere with the general
interests of the country. ' '
Parncll says he alludes' to this matter onlv
because within the last ffew O.iys strong or-
Kunicnts for iita expulslbn have been made
that unless the 111 coma inlo
power ticxt elect the plan
of campaign ten at will suffer.
IIo has shown that the H > ernls proposed to
do nothing for them direct action nnd Is
entitled to ask that thcso tenants , whom no
has supported in ovoryAvay in the inst nnd
will continue to support , shall not constitute
a reason for his cxpulsioq from Irish politics.
Parnell says that during * ten years of Inde-
pendcuco the Irish parliamentary party , It
haa , because of Its independence , forced upon
tbo English people the necessity of granting
home rule to Iielund. Ilr believes tbo party
will obtain homo rnlo prdvlded it remains in
dependent of nny English pirty.
In conclusion , no says it " 1 do not bellovo
nnv action of the Irish iMsopto In support
ing mo will ciidangpr the homo rule
cause or postpone the establishment of the
Iiish parliament. Hut ( Men if the danger
wcro to bo realized , I bellovo the Irish people

compromise of onr national rights by the ne-
ccptunco of measures which would not real
