Dec. united meeting of the State and National Councils to- day elected Dr. Welti aa President of the Republic and Mauser as Vice- Preeident for the year commencing January By M hich He Wan Crippled for The duel which resulted in laming August Belmont for life was the out- come of a chivalrous defense of woman- kind. The young man was with a theater parly in a box at Washington, and as they passed out they com- mented on the grace and beauty of a lady in another box. William Hay- ward of South Carolina, overbearing the remarks, made a remark which reflected brutally upon the whole sex. The young banker, though much smaller than the Southerner, hotly resented his comments. Facing the South Carolinian young Belmont said in deliberate tones: "The dog who would utter such a sentiment insults the memory of his own mother, and is unfit for the com pan v of decent men." Hay ward turned livid with rage and replied: You shall hear from me." Dueling was in fashion in those days, and Belmont was challenged. He was wounded in the leg below the knee and his opponent escaped Unhurt. The >oung banker became the hero of the hour. The unwitting cause of the duel was Mrs. Oscar Coles, a well- known society lady. This was in 1841. Mew Hay Bates.

The Old Wan clares Himseif. Election of Wade Hampton's Successor. OlBdntone Wives His By Cable and Associated Press. 1 LONDON, Dec. 11. Gladstone ar- rived to-day at Retford depot and ad- dressed a meeting of persons. He said the continuance of Parnell in his leadership would be fatal to home rule in England, Scotland and Wales; that Paruell was no longer the leader of the Irish Nationalists, who had separated themselves from him. He (Gladstone) admitted that the Irish party ought to be independent, and that the consideration and settlement of this question ought to be left to them. But there was something be- yond all considerations in Irish poli- tics, and that was the great cause of Liberalism in England, Ireland and Scotland. Gladstone said the trouble respect- ing the Irish leadership -was an addi- tional reason for granting home rule. Why should English and Scotch and Welsh politics depend upon the choice of a leader, or the confidential munications between the Liberal and Home Rule parties? He believed the O'Shea divorce proceedings would en- tirely destroy the moral force needed in Ireland for any one who would be a leading champion of a national cause. The Liberals felt that in granting home rule they constituted the Irish leader the Constitutional ruler of Ire- land, and the Liberals were unwilling, after what bad appeared in the divorce suit relative to the private and public conduct of Parnell, to make him the Constitutional Governor of Ireland. It was absolutely untrue that Morley had suggested that Parnell should hold office under the British Govern- ment before home rule was conceded. The Liberal party's work in Parlia- ment was to resist coercion in Ireland, and that woik was as sacred and as urgent now as it had ever been, no matter who might be the leader of the Irish party. Gladstone subsequently addressed an audience of persons at Work- sop. He said the determination of the Liberals was irrevocable; that they could not undertake effectually to support the cause of home rule at the next election in connection with one particular name. He pointed out the importance of continuing the struggle for Ireland, declaring that legislation for England will not be obtained, until the country has got rid of the home rule question. A chore.

To guard against any fur- ther attempt of his opponents to re- capture the office, the doors and win- dows were bolted and barred. When the office was secured against intrud- ers, all conversation was carried on through the keyhole. When Parnell made his assault upon the office this morning he was armed with a crow- bar, which he used in forcing open the front doors. When he appeared at one of the windows of the office he shouted that be would fight the battle to the last; would only allow the country to decide the issue, and that be would submit to the dictation pf no man. He appeared to' be fiercely excited and to have lost his usual self- control. Afterwards, in company w ii McCough, Solicto'r for tke National League, he drove to the railway sta- tion to take a train for Cork.
