In peseuting a petition for an amendment to the Tariff bill in relation to a rebate on manufactured tobacco, Allison said the confereen on the part of both houses agreed to that section of the bill, but it had omitted in tho enrollment.

An interesting discussion took place on the subject of the threatened In- dian war apropos of the joint resolu- tion to issue arms to the States of North and South Dakota and Ne- braska, Voorliecs having charged that the situation is due to the fact of the Indians being starved, and is being replied to by Dawea and Pierce. The debute at 2 o'clock on the Elec- tion bill is coming up us unfinished business. Hoar, who is in charge of the bill, said that, in view of tho fact that on reporting tho bill at the close of the last session he had addressed the Sen- ate on it, he would now forego any opening of the debate, but would an- swer whatever objections that have been made to the bill on the Demo- cratic side.

By Cable and Associated Press.) LONDON. Dec. meeting of the Irish Nationalists to further con- sider Parnell's leadership re-assem- bled at 2 o'clock this afternoon. During the proceedings ParneU an- nounced that the Sergeant-at-Arms of the House of Commons had granted the Irish members use of a com- mittee room until 7 o'clock. Healy disputed that official's right to determine the length of their delib- erations, and desired that he be noti- fied to that effect. Parnell declared the proposed mes- sage important. Objection was raisad to telegrams from individuals 'being received'during tbe proceedings. Dur- ing the discussion a telegram personal to Parnell was read. Sexton said he would persist to the end in his opposition to Parnell, de- spite the ruffiianly attacks made upon him. Dispatches from C'.onmel were read declaring the tenants on the Smith Barry estate, with Dillon and O'Brien, in opposition to Parnell. Telegrams from the Belfast branch of the National league were read, one of which declared its members would have no leader but Parnell. Sexton, who represented the western division of Belfast, aaid if the opinion of the Belfast nationalists was con- trary to his he would resign. Clancy said he had a proposal to make, which he hoped would induce a solution of the difficulty. A conversation ensued, which re- sulted in an adjournment until to- morrow, when it is expected a com- promise will be arranged which will lead to entirely new developments. Clancy's motion involved the tem- porary retirement of Parnell, subject to certain conditions being exacted from Gladstone in connection with his promised home rule scheme. Clancy's proposal has raised a hope among the Nationalists that a unanimous settle- ment can be effected. The Liberal circles, however, do not share in the hope, the attitude and front of the Opposition regarding Parnell being resolute and unyielding. DUBLIN, Dec. Board of Poor Law Guardians passed a vote of con- fidence in Paruell. The Poor Law Guardians of Strokes- town, Carrick and Boyle have with- drawn their confidence in Parnell. The Town Council of Maryborough adopted resolutions supporting Par- nell. The opinion of the National- ists in County Tyrone in favor of Par- nell is growing stronger.

A Woman Sentenced, to Death for Murder. Indian Unchanged. By Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, Dec. 3. General Schofield received a telegram this morning saying affairs are quiet and unchanged at the Rosebud Agency. Orders were issued to-day for the First, Fifth and Seventh regiments ot infantry to proceed at once to the scene of the threatened outbreak. CHICAGO, Dec. Miles arrived from Washington this morn- ing, and it understood he will at once proceed to the scene of the disturbance among the Indians in the Northwest. He has decided to mount two infantry regiments which have been ordered to First Regiment from California and the Seventh from Den- ver The horses are being hastily got together for that purpose. CHICAGO, Dec. have been received from Washington for the en- listment of twelve hundred Indians for attachment to the various regi- ments in the neighborhood of the In- dian troubles, two troops to each cavalry regiment and two companies to each infantry. Inspection-General Heyl, of the Division of the Missouri, returned to his headquarters this morning after an absence of nearly two weeks in the Northwest. From Chicago I went to Pine said Colonel Heyl. When I reached there on the 26th I found the Indians quiet and evidently in- clined to be peaceful. No doubt the rapid concentration of troops at Pine Ridge prevented an outbreak. Many reports sent by correspondents were sensational and are working great in- jury to the settlements. Many of the settlers have sold their stock at a sac- rifice and are leaving the country. I left Pine Ridge night before last; it was snowing bard and a blizzard was blowing, which will no .doubt cool the ardor of the young braves, while the older men are pacific in disposition." OMAHA, Dec. special to the Bee from Pine Ridge says "the weather is cold and a driving storm of cutting sleet prevails The troops are hugging their camp-fires, and the indiams are freezing in their tepees. To-day Agent Royer will call call in all the Indians at the agency and give then) a big feed at the Block- house. Should the present storm continue, and particularly should there be a heavy fall of enow, the ponies of the Indians now whose hay has been stolen by the hostiles, would die of starvation. At the best, this winter will inevitably be very tough on the copperfaces who have bowed their heads to Government rule in the present instance, while their rebellious and thieving brothers are living on the fat of the land.
