THE PAUKKLL CONTROVERSY. Many Nationalists Withdraw from His Support. Failu.o of a Heavy Ootton- Deelinfir Firm. mill Parnell. By Cable and Aisociated Preis.] LONDON, Dsc. Irish mem- bers of Parliament reassembled this afternoon, their deliberations being conducted with extra precaution for secrecy. The first business transacted was the reading of Gladstone's letter in reply to the committee. Gladstone renmins firm in his determination to in no way recognize Parnell as the louder of the Nationalists, and his positive-liens is emphasized by this letter, ia which he offers to conduct negotiations with iv new Irish leader on a footing of coiiiidoncQ equal to that which he once accorded Parnell. The reading of the letter was greeted with cheers by the section of the party opposing Paruell and ironical cries by his supporters. A stormy deb.Uo followed. Darcy, Sexton and Healy made a determined attempt to bring about a final settle- ment of the question. They insisted there should bean immediate division of the members on the main question before the meeting, namely, the re- tirement of Parnell from the leador- bhip. Finally Sexton gave Parnell his ultimatum to the effect that if a de- cision of the question is delayed by Parnell after G o'clock this evening, the majority would hold a meeting of their own and depose him from office. A scene of great excitement followed. At o'clock ti recess was taken for half an hour. At o'clock the members re- assembled. A strongly worded letter from Arch- bishop wns read demanding Parnell's removal. The reading of this letter produced a marked effect. John O'Connor moved the adoption of n resolution declaring Gladstone's letter was not sutisi'actory and that Ireland required assurances regarding the constabulary and laud questions. The motion was seconded by Kenny. Mr. Abraham then made a motion that Pnrnell vacate the chairmanship. Paruell refused to allow the resolu- tion to bo put, whereupon McCarthy, followed by 44 other members, left the room. An exciting incident arose from Parnell's refusal to put Abraham's motion as written. A reflation to to that effect being handed in by Jus- tin McCarthy. Parne 1 leaned across the table, struck McCarthy's hand and th'i resolution and tore it to pieces. Justin Himtin McCarthy, son of Justin McCarthy, arose from his seat and denounced Piirnell as having in- sulted his father and an enemy to his country. He declared he had hitherto acted with Parnell, but henceforth he would repudiate him. The defection of the younger McCarthy raised the total number ot anti-Parnellites to 45. The opponents of Purnell, who with- drew from the meeting in a body, are now holding a meeting in the confer- ence rsom and are electing officers. CHICAGO, Dec. Irish envoys have decided to leave for New York this evening unless later advices fron London shall make it expedient for them to remain longer. Their object in going to New York is to get close to the American end of the cable. They declined to naake any comments on the result of the proceedings of th Irish Nationalist meeting at London to-day, pending the receipt of intelh gonce of the final action of the Par- noil He and auti-Parnellite factions. Xot Oullty. Special to the G SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. pre- liminary examination of Max Somner, charged with forging a postal money order, was held to-day and the defen- dant was being shown that the similarity in the firms names led to his receiving a money order belonging to another firm, which he cashed, and that he had no intention of commuting forgery._______ Contlnne To Vail By Associated Press.] CHICAGO, Dec. special from New York says: The cotton house of Vena Meyer has suspended; liabilities. assets, This is the third largest cotton house in the country. They will ask for a suspen- sion, and say they will pay dollar for dollar. The financial panic and the slowness of collections, and the decline in the prices of cotton are the chief causes. The firm is interested in many cotlon and sugar plantations. It is feared the wreck will involve sev- eral other firing. Solomon Meyer is manager of the New York firm and part proprietor of the Port Gibson cot- ton mills, Natches cotton mills, and the Randelman plaid and stripes 7iianufacturers ol North Carolina. Adolph Meyer was recently elected to Congress aud Victor Meyer is Vice- President of the Union National Bank.

Sugar receipts and National lead are each off 1M and Western Union 1. A aomi-paniclcy condition existed during the first 20 minutes, when on large transactions, all active stocks were further depressed. A slight rally followed, -when the market for a time became more quiet, but a liquidation had been fa'nly started and everything afteward reached fractionally lower figures. The market throughout was narrow and the general list was neglected. Seven-eighths of the business done was in less than a dozen blocks, among which Union Pacific, Atcbison and Northern Paci6c preferred were the most conspipuous. Later the decline was checked and prices began to crawl upward slowly. At 11 o'clock the market was com- paratively quiet and firm. A. Pi obably Fatal Shooting Af- fray at Los Angeles. by Father Coiicllatory than Expected. By Cable and Associated Press.] LONDON, Dec. Press Asso- ciation says Gladstone's written re- ply to quewtions concerning the Irish constabulary and a settlement of the agrarian difficulty, indited at the request of the committee of national- ists which visited him yesterday, was less concilatory than the committee expected. It is reported that Glad- stone refuses absolutely to enter into any negotiations regarding these .uestions until is in accomplished fact. DUIILIN, Dec.

Fair weather, except a light rain at Euieka, Hum boldt Bay. A Perilous Mission Jute. By Associated Press.] PJNE RIDGE, Dec, most per- ilous mission a man of God has under- taken for many days in the interest of averting great bloodshed was com- pleted yesterday, when good Father Jute, a Catholic priest, whom General Brooks requested to go out and talk with tue rampantly hostile Indians, returned to the Agency. He was the only white man who might ever think of ever making the trip and living to get back. He was accompanied by Jack lied Cloud, who went by reason of being a widely respected son of the famous chief. Ten miles from the hostile camp they were halted by the pickets and conducted to the camp under cover of Winchesters. A con- ference followed, at which there were present Two Strike, Turning Bear, Short Bull, High Hawk, Crow Dog, Kicking Bear, Eagle Pipe, High Pipe and Big Turkey. Father Jute opened the council by asking the chiefs to state their griev- ances, and the reply was substantially as follows: "We object to the recent census returns made by Lee. His enumeration would not give food suffi- cient for us to live on. Lee puts us down many less for each tepee than the tepees contain. We shall starve, but we will have one big eat before starving time comes. After that we shall fight our last fight, and the white man shall see more blood and more dead than ever before. Then we will go to our last hunting ground happy. If the white man did not mean to cheat us out of food, the Great Father never would have sent the soldiers. There never would be any need of sol- diers if the Great Father intended to be with us. The Great Father has done another wrong. He put a new line between the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Agencies that makes many of us leave our homes and give them to others. The Great Father broke an old treaty when he did this, anc we can no longer believe the Great Father. He says to us: 'Children yon shall never be moved again unless you want to and then he goes right away and moves ua. We are done with promises, and now we make a promise that we will fight, and the Great Father will find that we mus not break our promise. We will now be very plain with you, Christian Father, and tell you another thing something which you may have al- ready thought. It is this: We are not coming in now, and will not lay down our rifles, because we are afraid of the consequences. We have done wrong and we know it, and if we stop now we will be punished. The Great Father will send many of us to his big iron house to stay many moons, and we would rather die." Father Jute urged them to be peace- able, and explained that the soldiers were not to harm the Indians, but to protect the agents; that the rations have been increased, and, if they came, General Brooke would telegraph to Washington and get permission for them to stay on this agency as they desired. The father told them they had bettor stop committirg depreda- tions, and they would be more easily forgiven. Finally he urged the chiefs to all come back with him. To this some of the older ones made a favor- able answer, but the young ones, who were heavily in the majority, said no. The old men finally agreed that they would come in to Father Jute's house, lour miles northwest of the Agency, this morning, and there meet General Brooke and tell him in person just what they had told Father Jute. This brought a renewal of bitter opposition from the majority. Finally the young chiefs cooled off and Two Strike, addressing Father Jute, said: Hold your hands up to the Great Spirit and tell us as though you were about to start on your jour- ney to the last hunting grounds of the red man whether what you say to us from General Brooke be true, and that we will not be harmed if we come in simply to talk with General Brooke." Father Jute says he complied with this request, when all the chiefs ex- tended their hands toward heaven, and, with great solemnity, promised they would come. stiver ByIAasociatedPresr.1 WASHINGTON, Dec. proposition for a compromise on the silver ques- tion, whicn, ia represented as emanat- ing from the Executive Mansion, has been laid before the silver men of both Houses. ThUi proposition is that Congress pass a bill at this time instructing the the Treas- ury to purchase or worth of silver, with which the market is said to be htocked at present. This proposition meets with the approval of conservative men in both Houses; but the advocates of free coinage feel so confident of thiir ability to put a free coinage bill through Con- gress at this session th-it they do not seem inclined to accept it. Much in- terest is manifested by the of the House, aud particularly the Weajern members, in the appoiutment of the Chairman of the Committee on Coinage, Weights and Measures to succeed Conger, who resigned to be- come Minister to Brazil. Wickman of Ohio is senior member of the committee, but his views on the silver question do not.coMHiide. with hose of Speaker Reed. Walker of Massachusetts is the next member in point of seniority, and he supports the Speaker in opposition to ree coinage. It is the opinion of the members of ;he Coinage Committee that Reed will select a Chairman from outside ho committee. A ISallroatl By Associated Press. TSiiURO, Dec. strike of the vard brakemen aud switchmen at Senwood, on the Baltimore Ohio Railroad, still continues. The Wheel- ng and Connellsville divisions are sadly blockaded. This morning the railroad company attempted to move the freight, but have so far succeeded n sending out only two trains. The officials of the road say they will be able to raise the blockade within the next twenty-four hours. Thought TO Be Vatally Shot. Special to'he GAZBTTB.] Los ANGELES, Dec.

Two Shipwrecked Crews Saved. Special to the GAZKTTB.] SAN FBANCISCO, Dec. steamer Coos Bay arrived this inofn- ing from Fort Bragg, Cal., bringing the crews of the steamer South Coast, which went ashore at Fort Bragg dur- ing a gale on December 3d, and the schooner Abbie, which went ashore at Caspar on the same day. The South Coast was anchored op- posite the south side, of the wharf on the night in question, and the fury of the storm, which caused the waves to break over her at times, parted her fastenings and drove her around upon the rocks. An examination subs-e- quenttyfljjhowed that there was a punched in her bottom. As soon as the weather moderated au attempt made to get her off the rocks, but when the Coos Bay left she was still in the same position, and it is feared she will prove a total wreck. The en- gine and machinery, however, can be saved. Captain Higgms, bis mate aud chief engineer remained with the vessel. The Abbey was moored under a lumber chute at Caspar during the storm, but her lines also parted, caus- ing her to go ashore. There is a pos- sibility of her being saved.'
