Washington, Dec. 0.—In the house juot es General Brooke as saying that one of the main causes of discontent among the hostile Indians is that a certain band of Sioux living on Pass Creek in Rosebud agency has been ordered to move against their will. These Indians desired to be transferred to Pine Ridge agency, and have secured the consent of the Indians now there. General Brooke asking for authority to permit the transfer, states in his opinion this would still further aid in d’"integration of the hostile element. General Miles telegraphed him In reply that he had ample discretion in the matter but advised him not to make prom Ut > to the Indians. He could assure them, however, that the government had secured an increase of rations and more general employment. General Miles adds that in his opinion the transfer can be made permanent hereafter if deemed advisable. In the other telegram General Miles says the reports from General Brooke indicate a more favorable condition of affairs. Ile says in case the disintegration continues the threatened outbreak will be prevented for this winter at least. The situation is 'till grave in his opinion and will require extreme watchfulness to satisfy the Indians and avert hostilities until Agk.vex, D ^H^TON.

Do you think.’ said the reporter, ‘‘the democratic party of the north would join the southern democrats on tho alliance platform?” “I do. I think more, and make the prediction that the democratic national convention of 1802 will adopt the alliance St. Louis platform iu toto.” Yesterday, President Polk, of the I armers Alliance, sent a telegram to Director-General Davis, of the world s fair, at Chicago, asking co-operation with the national alliance in securing the titling exhibits of American agricultural products at the exposition. The director-general replied asking for the appointment of a committee for that purpose. The committee was appointed; also one to memorialize congress for the suppression of lotteries. At the public meeting last night T. V. Powderly and A VV. W right, members of the executive board of the Knights of Labor spoke. Powderly said it was time for the lawyers to stand aside and give fanners a chance as well as the merchants and laborers. He was speaking only for himself individually, but if it was the general sentiment for ail producing, industrial and labor organizations to stand and vote together in 1892 he would be there in the hottest of the fight. The whole line of Powderly’* talk was in encouragement of the third party movement if it became necessary. In conclusion he said: “Let me say to you our greeting is most cordial and heartfelt. We feel that we are a part of your organization. Let us all agree upon your platform, lf it is to agitato and do hard work on that platform, we are with you, and if we are to vote with you upon it, we will stand by you at the polls. President Polk made a brief reply and several other speeches were made. The national colored alliance yesterday adopted a resolution urging congress to pass the Lodge election bill. A paragraph criticising and denouncing the white national alliance for its opposition to the bill was eliminated. At Thursday night's session of the national alliance. .1. IL Rice, of Kansas, who i> an aspirant for the people's nomination for senator, against Ingalls, got the floor on a proposition to improve the Mississippi river and took the occasion to deliver a violent political speech in which he denounced the republican party unworthy of existence.

He eats but one meal a day, at the noon hour, consisting of bread and cracked corn, and dresses in a red shirt, red hat and low-cut slippers.

They ask for an extension, and say they will pay dollar for dollar. The recent financial panic, the slowness of collections, and the decline in the price of cotton had its share in causing the result It is feared the wreck of this house may involve several other firms here and else-where. The firm is one of the oldest cotton factory houses in the city. The establishment has always enjoyed a high reputation in the business community and besides being extensively identified with the cotton industry controlled several sugar estates. The firm has an office in New York and are agents here for the Xatches and Port Gibson, Mississippi cotton mills and for another mill in North Carolina.

The assets were scheduled at $700,000and tho liabilities at about >800,000. The factory was shut down and a double guard of watchmen placed around it to guard against fires. The factory is located in the Springer building, which has been the scene recently of many mysterious Incendiary fire>.

The same was true of Dr. Macune. The report did not give entire satisfaction but was adopted without debate. At the afternoon session to day, complaint was made by Livingston, of Georgia, that the government crops statistician relied too much upon information furnished by uninformed congressmen. The committee on agricultural statistics reported, proposing a committee of five Alliance congressmen to make arrangements to get statistics, so the people may not be dependent the reports from the government tlcian in his labors. Mr. Burkite of Mississippi, moved a roster be furnished of all sub-Alliance secretaries who will >.*nd toeach Alliance all Hie information in their possession bearing on statistics. Mr. Turner, of Georgia, protested against such roster being furnished, as it could be used to destroy the order by politicians or schemers; that if the national secretary had had a roster in hi> possession and had been willing he could have sold it for $10,000 during the recent political campaign throughout the country. Politicians, he said, could use it to disseminate their corrupting literature. In reply, Burkltt said he did not believe the alliance secretaries were^so cor ruptible or would be so alliance principles as to the politicians. Mr. Turner said during the campaign Senator Ingalls offered $5,000 for a roster for Kansas secretaries alone. Powderly addressed the Alliance delegates at the exposition hall this afternoon He advocated reform in tho employment of child labor, insisted government had a right to control roads and then made a fie upon the employment of labor-saving machinery as defrauding the workmen of the right to work. He was especially bitter against all electric devices. He denounced sectionalism and said. matter what the politicians may say, we of the two sections are together again and together we will fight monopoly. This sentiment brought forth great applause.    ___ Ingalls Repudiates Turner's Washington, Dec. calls said to-night Mercer County (Jrand .Fury.

II. Connell is judge and w hich convenes the first of January. Among the indictments above was one which is remarkable in that it is a thorough condemnation of the present ruin of a court house. This true bill was duly presented to the grand jury then in session. It is hoped so broad a hint will be effective. London, Dec. 6.—Parnell's enemies have triumphed, and this evening the masterly leader of the Irish people is without a following. To-dAy there was not a revolt, but a revolution. The commander of the moral and political army was Timothy Healy, one of the brightest, ablest sons of the green isle. Obstruction, adroitness and threats proved as idle wind in the great battle to-day. And for the first time in his marvelous career the irish idol met defeat face to face. At one o’clock to-day the Irish members of the commons considering the advisability of the retirement of Parnell from the leadership of tile nationalist party, reassembled. No reporters were permitted to be present. The first business was the reading of Gladstone’s letter in reply to the committee regarding the control of th.* Irish constabulary and the settlement of the agrarian difficulty. Gladstone remains firm in the determination to in no way recognize Parnell. This position is emphasized in the letter in which he offers to conduct negotiations with a new Iri'h l.*adt*r on a footing of confidence equal to that which he once afforded Parnell. The reading was greeted with cheers by the section of party opposing Parnell and ironical cries by his supporters. A stormy debate followed. Barry, Sexton and Healy mad.* a determined attempt to bring about a final cettl**ment. They Insisted that there be an immediate division of members on the retirement of Parnell. Finally Sexton gave Parnell his ultimatum to the effect that if the decision was delayed by Parnell after >ix o’clock this evening the majority would hold a meeting of their own and depose him. A scene of great excitement followed. At 2:45 a rece>s was taken for half an hour. On resumption of th. meeting Abraham moved that Parnell vacate the chairmanship of the party. Parnell refused to allow the motion to be put, whereupon Morley, followed by forty-four other members, left the room. An exciting incident arose from Parnell's refusal to put Abraham’s motion. As a written resolution to the same effect was handed in by Justin McCarthy, Parnell leaned across the table struck McCarthy’s hand and seized the resolution and tore it to pieces. Justin Huntley McCarthy, a son of Justin McCarthy arose from his seat and denounced Parnell as an insulter of his father and an enemy to his country. He declared he had hitherto acted with Parnell but that henceforth he would repudiate him. The defection of the younger McCarthy has raised the total number of anti-Parnelllto members to forty-five. The opponents to Parnell who withdrew from the meeting ar^ holding a meeting and electing officers. After the withdrawal McCarthy a id the other anti-Parnell members the supporters of Parnell adopted a resolution expressing regret at Gladstone's refusal to state his views on the question submitted to him, and then proceeded to r* -elect Parnell a9 chairman. were better calcula-paticnt in a Vienna ho-pital was under treatment by the new method died suddenly as soon as the reaction following inoculation >et in, and a seventeen-year-old girl who was inoculated v/;th the lymph for lupus yester day at Innsbruck, died from paralysis of the heart.

London, Dec, 6.—Gladstone, in his letter to the nationalist meeting, acknowledges the receipt cf two resolutions adopted by the Irish causes and says, in part: “What question, raised by the publication of his letter to Morley, was a question of leadership, which Is separate and has no proper connection with homo rule. When the Irish party settles this question in such a manner as will enable me to renew my former relations with the Irish party, it will be my desire to enter without prejudice into confidential communication as occasion may see fit upon all amendments and suggestions of improvement in my plan for the home rule measure. I assure you it Is my desire to press forward at the first favorable opportunity a just and effective measure for home rule. I recognize and earnestly seek to uphold the independence of the Irish party no less than that of the liberal party, and acknowledge with satisfaction the harmony prevailing between the parties since 188G. When the pr**sent difficulty is removed, I know no reason to anticipate its interruption. I look forward with confidence, as do my colleagues, to the formation and prosecution of a measure which, in meeting all just claims of Ireland, will likewise obtain the approval of the people of Great Britain. Finally, I will remind you of my declaration that, apart from persona! confidence, there is but one guarantee that can be of real value to Ireland. It is that recently pointed out by Harcourt, when he called attention to the unquestionable political fact that no party nor no leader could ever hope to scheme for home rule but did not have the cordial concurrence and support of the Irish nation.

Having been. as I arn glad to say. a member of the ia't grand .ry, and knowing your fairness and willingness to give both sides a hearing. I b* g the indulgence of only a few lines on the situation a* It occurs to me. First. I wish to say there was no disposition on the part of the foreman or any member of the grand jury to neglect or evade any business brought forward in proper time and manner. Yet Mr. Trnlock says, the grand jury manifested gr**at diligence to adjourn for fear something would be brought before it. Now he was well aware that the grand Jury wa* in session the entire week; and he a'so knew that the session was expected to be a short one. And he * ertainly had ample opportunity to prepare and send in his wonderful communication during that time instead of waiting as he did do. until the last minute and sending it in after the final report wa- made out and signed. True, Mr. Trulock did offer in his communication to furnish ev!den**e sufficient t*~> indict ruany persons in Burlington *a hundred or more I believe! ami only asked that we issue our subpe nas and hear the witnesses but he forgot to give a -Ing e name of either criminal or wetnesses. No* instead of making this general and sweeping accusation against citizens of Burlington and exhausting his great legal talent In the effort to teach the grand jury its duty why did he not send ■ In the names of the terrible depredators upon the peace and dignity of the commonwealth, whom he .seemed so zealous j to have indicted, and also the names of w itnesses to be subpoenaed, or why did he j not come up himself like a ’little mar. and make his information in person. Or was he waiting las the tone of his communication seemed to indicate) himself to be subpoenaed, that h“ might add another SI.25 to the boodle already scooped from the county treasury.

Emperor William’** Speech on Soho**! form —Koch’s Cures. Berlin, Dee. 6.—{Copyright, 1>9<), by the New York Associated Dress. |—The ReichsnnzeUjer gives a passage f oui Emperor William’s recent speech on school reform, one point the emperor especially emphasizes is the time lost in the higher public schools in cramming youths with Latin and Greek instead of the Berman language and German history, especially the growth of the German institutions and the idea of national unity. Modern history, he declared, if rightly taught, would become infinitely more valuable than the chronicles of antiquity. How, he asks, were so many young Germans seduced from the path of political virtue” How was it Germany produced reformers of society, so many men nagging at their own government while commending the governments of other nations? It was simple igno-noranee arising from defective education on the Genesis of modern Germany. The higher schools must mend their methods. They must make their studies t**ar upon practical life; reduce the boys’ book work and give them more tim** for healthy recreation and training of thp body. The present system tended toward over production of highly educated people. Journalists, he said, were high school products run to s«ed. He approved the saying of Bismarcks anent the WaThitiirient£ii proletariat, who he called “Hunger candidates,” and from whom the ranks of journalism were largely recruited, forming a class dangerous to society. Finally, he declared, he would not license any more high schools until their methods were amended. The newspapers generally sharply resent the emperor's references to the journalists. The national Gazette says instead of their being hunger candidates many high state officers are only too willing to exchange their post- for positions on the press if they can get them. The latest developements of Koch’s j discovery of a cure for dyphtheria aud j tenanus have been‘limited to test exper- { intents with animals until yesterday, { when the remedy was applied to several | human objects throguh transfusion of blood from animals not suceptible to dyphteria, bacillus or tetanus. It was found that the blood of rats and mice had a destructive effect on the virus of dyphtheria, while the blood of rabbits, transfused. had similar effect on tetanus. before transfusion the blood must be freed from con-ulum and otherwise prepared.
