opponition of Stuwurt of Nevada Friday had ti stimulus effect em them aUo At any rate Spooner took the Moor Saturday ami made the most extended speech forthe oiH chat has yet been He paid that a Btraiixtt in the gallery listening to batf without kturvledge of his tory of the country would be impressed with the idea that all lave of liberty tuid devotion to the eoinstitution nnd freedom from partisanship were to be found on the Democratic wide of the chamber He hoped timt gentlemen on the other side would not assuiuo that Republican sena tors were not equally with lovers of liberty IIu took pride in belonging to a party whose history had been love of liber ty ftfirl defence of liberty A Few Other Similarities Senators on the othur side constantly as serted tliat they spoke for the AngloSaxon race Republican senators were also An gloSaxons and they would ay unwill ing as the Democratic senators to dispar age or degrade the race Gentlemen op posing this Mil denounced it as clearly un constlfcutiunal and spoke of their devotion to tiie constitution Jfe begged them to re member that devotion to the constitution was not conlined to the Democratic side He hugged to suggestthat possibly some persons might imagine that the hTcuness of the opposition to this bill was attributa ble in part to partisanship Sunutors ought tu Inwilling to concede that in the consideration oi a mejismv of Miis cJiarac tivr there was room for an honest diJlxr of opinion The MtiUur of ViwUs A good ilenl had been said in connection with what M called domiciliary visits but nothing had been said of the domicili ary visits of night riders at the south or of the shooting men and the whipping of women All tlie indixuation of Demo cratic senators had been directed at domi ciliary visits involving polite in quiry by federal ulticiil in to who Uvutl in the house so us to enable him to judge whether persons registered from that house were legal voters Jt had been said on the other hide that the bill was aimed at the south It was hi part but it was also aimed at every spot m the Inited States iv he re by fraud or force men who had a right to vote for members of congress were cheated out of Mint right from Mississippi The south he thought was where the bill wan specially needed In proof of bkis he read extracts from a speech made by Air Chnsnmn in the late const if ul ional convention of Mississippi declaring that since 1875 there had not been a fair elec tion in that state that in plain words they the white people had been stuffing the ballot boxes perjury arid carrying electUtns by fraud and violence until tlie whole machinery of elect ions was about to rot down it lair for southern senators to shut their eyes to everything but their own environments and to say that those from the north who complained against the inequality which the southern policy gave to the house of representatives and in the electoral col lege were mere partisans seeking the ac complishment of navtisnn purposes Kilntmtitmtl OujiHriciitiuns Jf they did not wish to be led by ignor there was nothing to prevent them from adopting the strictest kind of educa tional test it were an honest one If the constitution of Mississippi had stopped at the educational test and excluded from the right of every man white or black who could not read that instrument nobody would have coinplaiuud of it Hut now the ignorant white voter might have the simplest clause read to him and be asked if he understood it and answering yes might be permitted to vote while tin abstruse clause as the Ufiit domain or some and technical question miicht be read to t Incolured voter who would be asked tn yive a rea sonable exohuiiuioi of it The scheme was plainly dViMd to let the white man vote if he voted Demo cratic rkkft and to keep tlie ignorant black man from unless he voted the DinuKTatic ticket Uorxiit CniiKlilvr It 11 luir Keftrrin4 to Stewarts speech and to his remark that the elections law could not be enforced in the south because public opin ion would not supportit Spooner re marked To that complexion have we come iit last Ifcve we fallen on a condi tion in our country that calls for preserva tion by virtue of the purity of tlie ballot nt the north but that we must stop at Musoii and Dixons Hue because public opinion iu the south is in favor of dishonest and fraudulent and violent suppression of the suffrage I cannot liLlieve it Some Iromiseil George said ihit he was not in the chain while the eoistitution of Mississippi had been under discussion by Spooner and could not now ropiy to his remarks But he would do so LU yood time and in a way that would remove the imputations made on the constitution by tpoouer and by Dolph some days ago Ingalls thought it important that some liuht should be shed ou the subject 10 which George proposed to address himself lie would therefore rend Mmif extruts from speeches oi dele gates to the MUsissifpi convention and from editorials of local newspapers on the subject of the qualification as to the abil ity to rea 1 or to explain clauses of the con stitution Newspaper Ueports lleail Ingalls thereupon read from the Jack pon tMiss Ledger a report or some re marks made by a deloicnte at the conven tion on the qualiHeat ion clause which clause he understood to have beeu the in vention of Georgthimself aud winch was not like anything iu tue heavens above or iu the earth beneath or in waters under the enrcU He thought it was subjtct to a parent for novelty He read many extracts from VickshurgHud other journals iu condemna tion oi ihtclause He and Edmunds then criticised the way tiie Mississippi conven tion had beeii culled and its HCIUVI iu de claring the constitution adopted the law of the state without ureferrinjr it to the people both cf wliicn they claimed were entirely outMile of the oM statA constitu tion and in violation t bereuf An army ot locusts is moving across sev eral districts of Victoria New South Wales devouring everything in its track Thev even cross lanje rivers He Wants the Duty Belmposed for Va rious IifasoiiH WASHIXGTOX Cirr Dec A Brown of Massachusetts the noted sugar tariff expert has been in this city t or sev days conferring with leading officials and members of congress about the cut in the duty on sugar to go into effect next April under the new tariff law and its effects on the revenues of the country Brown insists thafc the loss of rerenne from making sugar almost duty free to gether with the bounty to be paid to sugar producers in this country will amount to n year He is of the opinion that it be found advisable and that it will be the duty of congress to restore fully threefourths of the presenter old duty on sugar aud discontinue or repeal the bounty feature of the new law Xore Revenue a NeceMslty He has no doubt that the rapid increase in production of sugar in this country will very soon cheapen permanently the price of that article to American consumers nnd that a sustained duty on sugar would he a powerful factor iu treating with su par prod ucing countries for reci procity He says his opinion and views on this mat ter are shared by leading Republicans in and out of congress who are not unmind ful of the demands that are likely to be made upon the treasury to meet the largely increased government expenditures for pensions the new navy etc in the near future More money will have to be raised somehow to meet this increased govern meat expenditure and it need not be looked for he says from customs revenues in view ol the reduction of tariff taxes ou many articles and the extended free list found in the McJunley bill law WILL BE QUIET AT THE CAPITAL The National legislators Will Have Their Holiday Willy Kllly WASHINGTON CITY Dec the approach of the holiday season senators and representatives are beginning to leave Washington City to spend Christmas at their homes or to visit neighboring towns and as a consequence there will be many empty seats in both branches of congress It is hardly probable that there will be a quorum hi either house during the week and as ti matter of necessity the pro gramme will be simplified The last sena tor on Vice President Mortons list of speakers on the election bill will proba bly have finished his address by Wednes day and on that day the senate will in all probability take a recess over Christmas until the Monday following Prolmblts Action of the llousi The absence of a quorum in the house will prevent action ou any measure resolution providing for a recess from Dec until after New Years was considered by the ways and means committee and action on it deferred until today The consent of the senate will be necessary in order to make the resolution effective The probability ia that the house will ad journ ou Monday after matters relating to the District of Columbia have been dis cussed until the day before or the day after Christmas when another adjourn ment will bf tiiken until tho following Monday Sixty for Kach WASHINGTON CJTY Dec Prod or having with decided success en deavored to improve the

Arrives to Take a Hand la the LnMt Confi dently Claiming the ious Posters at Kilkenny Torn Down toy the Day on the Stump ami Some of the Made LONDON Dec Harrington arrived at Qneenstown Saturday and hastened on his arrival to communicate with Pamell and the latter is said to much encouraged by the information which Harrington has brought from Amer ica The Parnellites had arranged for a big welcome to Harrington but missed the connection and there were comparatively few on hand when he arrived They re ceived him with loud cheers when the antiParnellites gave counter cheers and in a short time there was a melee in which the antis were victorious Little damage was done however Sunday a Day of Politics All day 3esterday the two parties were busy electioneering The those of Ossory diocese and others from various parts of the time outside of religious services in pressing tieir views on the people and urging the election of Sir John Pope Hennessy Al lusions more or less direct were made from the pulpits to the pending contest Parnell declared himself confident of vic tory The people listenedpatientlyfthough the priests protested against Parnell turn ing Sunday into a day political strife and argument and urged their flocks to feo home There wis very little demon stration and all seemed desirous of putting on their best behavior The Campaign at Kilkenny Kilkenny is fairly covered with flaming political placards full of wit of terse ar gument and it must be added in many cases of indecency The coarse allusions which have characterized Hie campaign on the part of the antiParnellites iiud fre quent repetition in red and black on the deadwalls and crowds of and meu gather to read and laugh at them Occa sionally an officer of police pushes his way through a crowd and after scanning a par ticularly offensive poster turns to a subor dinate and orders it torn down Some times a crowd of angry Parnellites re solves itself into a committee of censor ship and without waiting tor the judg ment of the official pounces upon the of fending placard nnd strews its fragments in the gutter Precautioiis Iliot This is done with the more impunity from the fact that in the town the popu lace is made np of Parneirs adherents in great majority whatever the rural part of the district may prove to be The excite ment on the eve of the important decision of today was intense The place was in an uprour with parades and meetings torches bands fireworks and ivery vari ety of political demonstration The Swo men who received the greatest amount of abuse from the Parnellites were Hennessy and Healy The latter will be lucky if he gets out of the district with a whole skin The government is taking great precau tions against a general riot A Feature of the The feature of the situation that is the gravest for thinking Irishmen is that the English while they display a hungry in terest in the blows and thwacks that the contestants are giving one another have ceased almost wholly to regard the political aspect of the struggle They seem news papers and people to have dismissed home rule from their thoughts as now outside of living political issues This attitude is common to Liberals and Conservatives alike and many of the former assume an injured air as if they had narrowly es caped being the victims of a confidence game on the part of their leaders THE DOINGS ON THE STUMP Parnell avid His Opponents In a Heavy Days Work KILKENNY Dec and Candi date Scully left Kilkenny at uoon yester day and drove in a closed carriage accom panied by a long procession of filled with their adherents to Clare where they found a Hennessy meeting in progress They alighted near the church and began to organize a meeting in opposition to the Heunessy gathering Father Walsh cams up at once and informed Parnell that these were chapel gfciunds and no political meeting could be held on them A fannej in the neighborhood disputed the asser tion of the priest and declared that the land was private property and that Par nell must speak there or the people would make trouble Seeing that the feeling of the crowd was in Paruells favor Father Walsh retired 4 Remark About the Friestj Parnell then addressed the meeting Ht wviil that though he did not have the sup port of sll the clergy he had no harsh words for any one and hoped that the people would listen to the priests rever ently Yet they should remember that as laymen they could not admit the priests to absolute control in the matter of elec tions Parnell denounced his opponents in the parliamentary party as traitorous mutineers who were guilty of engulfing the party in a sea of trouble at the critical moment Tim Harrington Makes a Speech From Clare the party rode to Johnswell While Setilly was speaking Timothy Har rington aippeared on the scene and re ceived an enthusiastic welcome He made a speech in which he said that liis col leagues in America were led astray by messages received from this side which gave a distorted impression of the situa tion Pnraell also spoke He said that his opponents had elected an amiable good hearted soul as their would figure ata tea party but who cut a ridiculous figure as tho leader of a polit ical party Kilkenny TV ill Not Settle It He said he had faith in Kilkennys deci sion but if the resuk was unfavorable he would not be downhearted but would bold aloft the nag until
