This measure w as not satisfactory to all the senators but was accepted as the best possible compromise. The caucus also instructed the committee on rules to prepare and report a cloture rule. It is I understood that it will be framed on the I lines of the rule proposed at tile la.-t session by Senator Hoar and w ill provide i for ordering the previous question on any pending proposition after a reasonable time allowed for debate.

Moreover, the respectable ele-mentof the population was wanting W hen Darnel I last visited Dublin, five years ago, he was met by a huge procession of trades, bearing enormous banners, and also by a large procession of priests. Both these elements of voting power were conspicuously absent la A week. As a prominent Dublin citizen said last night:    “l'arncll can always get a mob when it is not engaged elsewhere.” At this moment the Dublin mob element is engaged elsewhere, in Kilkenny, where Parnell's committee has import* d one hundred Dublin larikans for th- purpose of amicable advocacy. Ka-b m . however, the feeling of the population in favor of parnell is modifying. Wherever he goes there are cheers for the man from those who a- yet ignore what has altered tin* man's position, but that is the extent of the feeling for him, and and each day diminishes its strength. Parnell’s cause is waning with the fighting strength of its leader, which is now almost at its lowest ebb. Parnell will break down physically, if nothing more, before many days have passed. The last few days, during w bu h he has em-ountered a hostility to which he is altogether unaccustomed, have thoroughly sapped the strength, born merely of passion iud audacity, wi ll which he entered into this painful contest. Against him through the nevi borhood are arrayed forces with which be never thought to have to compete. The priests are solidly opposed to him. and it ss almost needless to emphasize the power wielded by the hierarchy throughout the whole of the district covered by tho present campaign, Out, of over two I hundred priests th* re U but one who l a-declared in favor of Part *11, ii rid win. from personal friendship, is -’auf chiv fighting f<»r him. “Parnell owes ail his present success to his surprising and abnormal terrifying energy coupled with the fact that the Irish party have no newspayer organ through whose columns to reason with a people who eagerly devour political news.

LIBERALS DISCOURAGED. The Tory Victory In the lla**»etUw Fleets ii Dishearten* Them. London, Dec. IT.—The Iiassetlaw election was a staggering blow to the Glad-s onians. They scarcely expected to win but to lose by a larger majority than in a t,'*‘vt're disappointment. The caus** was solely liberal abstentions from voting. Recent events have increased the number of Gladstonians who positively refuse to vote for anything called borne rule. Yesterday a reporter had a conver: ion with a very closo friend of Gladstone, himself a leader of influence, ne took a gloomy view of the future of his party. “This Parnell business has Killed u-, I fear,” he sa d. “Nothingcan wipe out of the public mind the fact that we have been holding up Parnell to admiration a? a model pat riot for five years. Now we are obliged to call him a rascal, aud he abuses u~ as hyporites and tells tile whole world our home rule was a rank imposture. How can we expect to get over such a scandal ? The English people were beginning to believe iii home ru e. Now they -*e that tile chiefs of the movement never had a clear undemanding of what home rule meant or any confidence in each other.” “What are you going to do?” was a- lied. “A depends on the old man,” said he, wearily. “I wish we could cut adrift from this infernal Irish alliance at once. course, it would look bad after all the til-. we have made, but it is better than going on to certain shipwreck. Th*-conservatives would beat us ail along the due if they had a general election now. U bat fools they are not to strike while Weare so demoralized. As for these Iris! limn, they will ruin themselves and everybody who goes in with them. They always do it. O'Brien thinks he can patch up the difficulty. He is a dreamer. I lie Irish are all out on the warpath, and the Lord only knows where they will end. They have destroyed the liberal party.

Chi* aum, Dec. IT.—To-night Adjutant General Corbin said that no word had ’■'eeu received front General Miles since his arrival at Rapid City. Neither hail any advices been receiv. d either confirming or contradicting the reported battle between the troops and Indians near Daly's ranch. He said that while the report might be true, it wa- reasonable to suppose that if so he would nave been advised of it by that hour lie presumed that there were uaitds of hostile bucks in the ranch country f r the purpose of stealing horses and an attempt may have been made to capture one of these.

General Carr is encamped at the jim* ion of the Rapid and Cheyenne rivers, forty miles east, with over four hundred men.

The troops will soon cross th** Cheyenne river and proceed toward Bine Ridge, when trouble may ensue. other effort at pacification would be sue* I cessfui. He estimates the number of I nm in the hostile camp in the Bad i Lands at two hundred and fifty; Gen-; eral Unger’s estimate represents two ' hundred men on the Cheyenne river aud three hundred iu the Standing Rock ; reservation who would have been liable I to leave before the death of Sitting Bul), ; making in all seven hundred and fifty men. Every possible mea*- s is exhausted to retain and restrain the friendly Indian-on the reservations.

Telegraph, telephone and electric light wires are down and busi-im-s j< practically suspended. This city being almost in the storm’s center ha- suffered more severely. The monetary damage Is very great in all branches of trade, especially railroads and strict car lines, which have practically suspended, paralyzing business and causing a total stoppage of operation- in tile oil and stock exchange. Through the breaking of electric light wires three horses have been killed, two drivers knocked unconscious and a street car. tilled with frightened pajsengers, set ab aze in a moment. The police switch boards and telephones have been turned out and as a result the outlying police districts are isolated. Millions of tons of coal i- lying in backwafer from the dam, and should a rapid thaw ensue the greatest damage will be along the river-*. Reports from country districts show even greater damage owing to a lack of fa ’,l!ti‘*s for transportation. At B d-'ord, Pennsylvania, two feet of snow is reported, with a complete blockade of ’he lumber business along the Blue and !. ior-1 Ridge mountains. West Virginia aud eastern Ohio have suffered greatly aud the situation is crowing worse. A sudden flood is the greatest calamity now feared.
