democrats to have them accept the republicans proposi The democrats took enough time to consider the matter and when the was called to order this afternoon the motion made by Holbrook was vir tnally nothing else than a feeler aa to dont yon think our scheme of getting j democratic fanners to send in Formers Alliance petitions against Allison ii a 1 good one You see the members of the legislature dont know who the signers are and they are getting terribly scared at having so many of them coming It is a great scheme and we are going to work it for all it is worth As toon Poyncer got a chance he informed the gen tleman that he was not that he was a republican and thought there must bo some as a republican was not generally made the repository of democratic The democratic brother looked dumbfounded and then suddenly The democrats were in caucus all The work of the leaders among the members last night was pro DP HIS iMDil TO THE I the republican on the lottery i After Botchkiss had

refused the above without any debate unani What will uevulope now is hard to The democrats are losing ground rapidly and stand in an unenvi able Their party managers are disheartened and while they endeavor to put on a bold front it is evident all is not happy All advantages ure now on tbe republican Under the cir cumstances and the turn matters have taken today it would cause no great sur prise

but HotchkisB sustained the objection of Luke and ruled the proposition out of After adjournment HoichMsB received bitter denunciation from the democratic but it will do no good to go for He will rule as he thinks no matter what the party may dnctive of some and although nothing could be learned as to the inside workings of the it is well known that matters were considered very seri ously and The statement made this morning that Senator Allison has been telegraphed for and that his supporters are in need of his and that his interests are endangered is without any foundation whatever and proves

about a separation of Ireland from England and that the speeches of the others in view of the state of the country were calculated to foment The greatest interest centres in the final conclusions which follow find the mem bers of parlament were not members of the having for its object the establishment of the absolute indepen dence of but find some of them together established and joined the

crimes in public they after ward led the supporters to believe such denunciation was not is not es We entirely acquit Par nell and other respondents of the charge of insincerity ia their denunciation of the Phoenix Park and we find the fac simile letter upon which this charge was chiefly based against Parnell is a The respondents did dis siminate newspapers tending to incite sedition and the commission of other The respondents did not direct ly incite any persons to the commission of crime other than intimidation but they did incite to intimidation and the consequence was that crimes and outrages were committed by persons so As to the allegation that the respondents did nothing to prevent crims and expressed no bona flde disapproval cf some of the particular Michael express a bona

invited the assistance and cooperation of and accepted sub scriptions of money from known advo cates of crime and the use of we find the respondents did invite the assistance and cooperation of and sub scriptions of money from Patrick known as an advocate of crime and dynamite but it has not been proved that the respondents knew that the ClannaGael controlled the Land League or was collecting money for the parliamentary but it had been proved the respondents in vited and obtained assistance and co operation of the physical force party in including the and in order to obtain that assistance abstained from repudiating or condemn ing the action of that Beside these there remain three spe cific charges against Parnell namely at the time of theEil mainham negotiations Parnell knew Sheridan and Boynton had been organ izing outrages and therefore wished to use them to put down the outrage not Parnell was in timate with leading Invinciblea that he probably learned from them what they were about when he was released on parole in April and that he recognized the Phoenix park murders as their handiwork we find there ia fno foundation for this and that the Invincibles were not a branch of the land Parnell by an opportune remittance enabled Byrne to escape from justice to France we find Farnell did not make any remittance to enable Byrne to escape from Regarding two special charges against Davitt that he waa a Fenian and assisted in the formation of the Laud League with money contributed for the purpose of outrage and crime that he was in close and intimate association with the party of violence in and waa mainly in strumental in bringing about an alliance of that party and the Parnellites in Am we flnu it proved that Davitt was a Fenian and received money from the
