Heat of the Brltlsli LlberttU Ieclared tentlon of the Uncrowned King to Fight the Matter to the End and Knuckle to Xobody Losuoy Dec Irish parliamenta rians met at noon yesterday to decide as the saying goes the fate of Charles Stew art he shall lead the Ir ish or some other leader be selected But it is doubtful if that way of putting it is just right From Parnells attitude and the way he addressed his colleagues it looks a good deal more like deciding whether there shall be one Irish party or two It is already asserted by thosa who know Parnells methods that he is playing for delay and in the meantime his agents are working the Irish machine for all it is worth among the people in Ireland get ting resolutions passed in his favor and drumming up public sympathy for him in view of the expected plebiscite which is to decide whether or not the people will sus tain him against his opponents A Meeting of Angry Opponents About seventyfive of the Irish members of parliament were present at the meeting whiih wiia ou the dead secret the only newspaperman allowed to be present being the Freemans Journal The storm of oratorical invective and pleading was a wild one as could be heard by the hun dreds of newspaper reporters who crowded around the building and sought by get ting near tiie doors or windows to gat some inkling of whafc was going on inside Wo are your comrades not your slaves angrily shouted Sexton to Parnell no loudly that it could be plainly be heard by thosa outside As for Parnell when seen going into the hall he seemed serene The Policy of Dislay An stated above the Parnell policy was one of delay Redmond was his champion white Sexton bore the heat and burden of the opposition Barry moved that Par nell be required to retira from the leader ship Nolan moved an amendment that the question be postponed until the mem bers should personally ascertain the of their constituents and the party should meet in Dublin and on this issue the bat tle raged Sexton declared that the ra tirement was imperative Redmond made a passionate plen for delay and around these two champions arose the lessor lights with pleas for one course or other Parnell in His Own Behalf At last the leader arose to plead his own cause Plead is hardly the word He was aggressive from the start He was sionate In great contrast to his former cold incisive speeches he attacked en emies vigorously and hotly He said that those responsible for the decision of the party seemed to forget what was duo to themselves thefr country and him The men who were most conspicuously against and have to bear their responsibility in all this Healy had been trained for this warfare Who trained him Who saw his genius and gave him his first chance in pnblio lifef Who got him his seat in parliament tend ing rebuking restraining him Blasts for Healy and McCarthy Parnell continued That Is here today to destroy me is dua to myself but I am glad he is here oven to dentroy me if he understands the meaning and effect of his proceedings Healy reminds me of his services He has not been slow to remind me of them at any time I understand he attended the recent meeting in Dnbjin which called on me not to retire Who askfid him to do so Did I Who asked McCarthy to travej to London to say that he would be able to give information which would throw a different complex ion on hidden events Did I Barry Called a LeaderKiller Why did my officers encourage me to take my position on the bridge if they were going to act as traitors and hand me over to another commanderInchief I did not ask them forthe certificate of char acter given by the Dublin meeting A leaderkiller Barry has been put up to stab me as he stabbed the old lion Isaac Butt in days gcma by I ramember well that though Butt arraigned me I never by word or deed counselled attacks npon him but allowed the old man to go down to an honored grave rather than to step into the shoes of a politician who however grave his faults had created a great movement and given me and many others the power to participate therein RATHER ROUGH ON GLADSTONE Meratain i neighborhoods Jttllloo Tenn hart thousands of itmbw The G O M Called a Garrulous Old Gentleman I have been nsked abont the Hawarden interview I was told there that Mi Gladstones communication not to be divulged to any of my colleagues yet be cause I did not

followed Parnell He ex plained his visit to Gladstone Gladstone told hint that ha resetted the dijorgainiza tion of the Irish party but he could not regard him as representing the party aad therefore could not treat with him He would older no sugfgnstion sign no docu ijneut give no message to be convejed to Die party said he could not give any document wita an j eortainty that it might not be printed by some one of thosfl con cerned McCarthy also saw Harcourt who did not say that he would not make a promise of any kind to any Irish member yo More Parnoll for Harcoart He simply said that in view of Parnells manifesto he would not give anybody verbally or in writing assurances which were to be brought to the notice of Par nell As to the general question of Par noils retiring McCarthy said the leading error had been his Parnells keeping pri until now the Hawarden conversa tion am perfectly willing to admit the blame but I am glad that I have told it all now before the full mischief was done Kulcd Out MM OShea Business Without action the meeting adjourned for the day During the proceedings Par noil ruled out of order any reference to his conduct in the OShea case This brought him

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
