It is Being Pursued With Suc- cess by PamelL Stormy Meeting1 of the Home Bola Members of Parliament. An Impassioned Appeal of taw Irish Lead- er to Culleaguea Meets With Great Oppositl .a. Particularly Fr m Mr. Sex- ten. LONDON, Dec. scenes around the Parliament buildings yesterday were members aad others gathered outside the halls and in the vicinity of the room where the Nationalists were in session, eager- ly waiting for some indication of the reault of the meeting. Every outcomer was besieged by a crowd of curious fel- low-members and speedily pumped dry of all the information possessed. The speakers' voices" could be frequently heard outside, as tho orators warmed rjp to the attack and defense, and the bursts of applause were plainly audible in the House of Commons. Mr. Parnell seemed to have thrown off his usual chatted gayly with his supporters, even indulging in the unwonted luxury of an occasional joke as he sat at luncheon with a few of his faithful adherents. During tho debate, those outside plainly heard Sir. Sexton shout angrily in response to a remark of Mr. Parnell: "We are your comrades not your slaves." It is surmised by those famil- iar with Parnell's methods that he has been trying to delay matters as much as possible by keeping his enemies in Lon- don, while his party agents are working like beavers among the people in Ire- land, getting resolutions passed in his fsvor and drumming- Uu publio sympa- thy for him, in view of the expected plebiscite which is to decide whether or not the people will sustain him against his opponents. If some of his leading antagonists were to take tbe stump against him at this crisis, his chances of success would be greatly diminished. He controls. the machinery of the League, and is just now using'it with- out any one being on the ground to en- ter a c criticism or objection. Advices from the Irish cities, however, state tbat the declaration of the envoys to America against Parnell has had a marked effect in turning sentiment away from him. The meeting discussed Mr. Barry's motion that Mr. Parnell retire and Mr. Nolan's amendment that the question of retirement be postponed until tho mem- bers should personally ascertain the views of their constituents and tho party should moet in Dublin. After Mr. Redmond had finished his speech, Mr. Parnell took tbe floor. He said the time had come when he must speak out against ih-3 opposition within the party, caused by Mr. Glalstone 3 letter. Those responsible tor the decision of the p.irty seemed to forget what'was due to themselves, their country, and him, The men who were most conspicuously ajainst him. Messrs. Healy and Sexton, would hav to bear their responsibility in all this. Mr Healy Hid bsen trained for this warfare, Who trained him? Who saw his genius und gaVe him tiis ttrst otiance in publie life? Who got him his. seat in Parliament, tending, rebuking, restraining him? Mr Paraell continued: That Healy is hen to-day to destroy me is due to myseif; hut I am glad that he is here oven to destroy me. if he understands the meaning and effectof his pro ceeding. Healy reminds me of his services He has not been slow to r imiud me of them at any time. I understand he attended the recent meeting in Dublin which called on me not to re- tire. Who asked him-to do so? Did I? Who asked McCarthy to travel to Dublin to say that he would be able to give Information which would throw a different complexion on hidden events? Did t? Where was Se ton at this same meetinu? Where wer---you all? Why did vou encourage to come forward and maintain the leadership and fase the world, if you were not goin? to stand by me' Wbv did my officers encourage me to tikj my position on the if they were to act as traitors and hanc me over to ano'her ooromander-in-ciiiel? I uia not ask them tor tho certificate of character given by the Dublin A luadcr-killor Barry, has been put up to stab me as lv: bai stabbed the old lion, Isaac Butt, in days gone by Without final action the meeting ad- journed until to-day at noon. Mr. Par- nell ruled out of onler any reference to his conduct in tb.3 O'Saoa case. This brought him into frequent collision with the speakers, notably Mr. Hoaly. The debate was at times very acrimoni- ous. Mr. Parnell, it is said, has already ap- pointed the wedding day. about six months hence, for himself and Mrs. O'Sbea. Those who have mot the pair say that they are passionately devoted to each other and tbaOfrs. O'Shea'sone ambition for years has been to become Mrs. Parnell; that while she deplores the political effect of the exposure, she is more than compensated by the pros- pect of union to the man of her choice. Mrs. O'Shea is about four years older than Paraell- It is said that she had NICELY KECAPTUKED. Oae ef the Conv'.ctrd of Murdsf Who Escaped From Jail at aet, Fa., ia Araln la Prison. SOMERSET, Dec. the four prisoners who broke out of the county jail Saturday night, was recaptured Monday and is again locked ap. William Ferno, a young man resid- ing a mile from town, who was aiding in the search for the escaoed prisoners, returned home before daylight yester- day morning and ouud Dave Nical j se- creted under some hay in his stable, with his leg and arm broken. Nicely surrendered without trouble. He was almost dead from exposure, being thin- ly clad and suffering great pain from his injuries. While escaping he fell from the rope, breaking a leg and an arm. His companions carried him to Feme's stable, .secreted him and aban- doned him. Dave says his. three com- panions were also more or less injured while escaping, but that they are now safe from their pursuers. Joe Queer, the escaping prisoner who fell from the. ton of the jail to the ground, is said to be dying from injuries received. One of the pursuers who started out Sunday morning has just returned with reserve and i tbe story that Jo'J Keyser and Hgmborson have been traced to a cave Extenslve Manufactory Burned at Mauayunk, Pa. in the mountain just over tbe West- moreland County line, where they are surrounded. They had arms, ammuni- tion and food pl.iued there in advance, and much difficulty will be experienced n taking thorn. There is now no doubt hat Keyser and Ilamberson, who are charged with trivial offenses, ware in the deep laid plot to rescue the Nicelys ,nd committed tho offonses with the ob- ectin view of bsing placed in jail, so ;hat they could assist the Nicelys in es- caping. _______________ PANICKY DEPOSITORS.

The match was for .81. 000 stake money, a silver cup emblematic of the world's championship and the gate money. Both men appeared to be in good condition. The game was rather teilious for tbe first two innings, both men playing very cautiously and appearing nervous. Schaefer, however, woke up in the sev- enth inning and after a series of fancy open table shots, got the balls together and nursed them for 37 points. Slosson followed and by careful play rolled up 4L Schaefor thereafter played both. brilliant an.a.steaSy game an'd'gradually but surely drew away from Slosson, who did not seem to do himself jubtice.

He bad been a cruel hus- band, dissipated and worthless for many years, and finally in his drunken frenzy drove his wife from home. ,She took refuge with, her sister, who lived near by, and the fact that this sister gave .shelter to his wife brought upon her the enmity of Miller. .Passing the house, Miller met his sister-in-law and without a.word of warning shot her so seriously that she died within a few hours.
