A Memorable Scene Which Can Not Fall tp Have Far Reaching oo the Future of Ireland. LONDON. Dec, scenes Saturday in the committee room of the House of Commons where the Nationalists were assembled together, as it proved, for the.last time, will form one of the most stirring chapters of Irish history. There wero no spectators of the stormy ses- sion of this miniature Irish Parliament and its disruption, but the stories told by the members agree in describing the proceedings as most exciting. The semblance of good feeling which had with difficulty been maintained between the contending factions in the previous meetings was no longer kept up. All realized that compromise and concilia- tion were impossible and there was no further concealment of the bitter pas- sions which had long been smoldering beneath the surface. Mr. Parnell, though never losing the wonderful com- mand over himself which is so marked a characteristic of his strength, did not refrain from launching shafts of-denun- ciation and vituperation upon the heads of those whom, to use bis own bold phrase, he had made politically, and who now seized upon the moment of his personal embarrassment to seek his for their own advantage. These accusations were reiterated by ttte devoted adherents of the former leader and as vehemently denied and resented by the men at whom they were aimed, and who averred that, so far from owing their political existence to Mr. Parnell, it-was their voluntary self In the interest of harmony to which ha owed his own prominence. This self-obscurementbad been the cost, they reminded him, of much unresentec injustice toward them on his part, for in the days -of his apparent invincibility he had refused them all credit for their patriotic sacrifices, while taking to himself all the credit for the good re of the unanimity which their sub mission to discipline had made possible So the war of crimination and recrimi nation went on, and questions of polic' were forgotten in the hurling to am fro of personalities. Tho climax ee the wrangle was reached when Mr. Par- nell, taunting his opponents with wha he termed their cowardly surrender a vaiaglorious and weak-kneed old En glishman, cried angrily: "Who is mas ter of or myself? Instantly Tim Healy's voice was hear shouting: "You had hotter ask. who is mistress ef Ireland." The blood surgei into Parnell's face, .and he shook' ihi fist atHealy as he retorted passionately "Sir, you are a dirty blackguard, to in suit a lady in the presence of Irish gan tlemen." When the majority started .to with draw, after Mr. Partell bad refused chairman to put thequestion on -the mo- tion for his retirement from the leader ship, there was a tumult Bitter were exchanged, and each faction warned the other that the verdict of the people of Ireland at the polls would overwhelm traitors with ignominy. It is nat to be doubted that Parnell will make considerable capital with the rural constituencies by describing the actions of tbje'McCartbyites as secession. The fact that they bolted the regular meet- ing will be utilizwd to throw discredit upon their loyalty to tho party organiza- tion, though the bolt was in reality Important Conferences at the National Convention.

Steamer Encounters a Terrific Gale U j auii Throe of Her Crevr an Killed aad Several Wounded. LEWES, DeL, Dec. Britisk Steamer Maryland, from Baltimore foi London and Swansea, arrived at Breakwater Saturday. On the morning of December 1, about COO miles ofl shore, the ship encountered a t-erriSc fale from the south and her decks swept by a tremendous soa which in- stantly killed Captain Luokhurst, the boatswain and second cook; also ing the leg of the first officer, Lloyd; breaking the arm of the carpenter and severely injuring others of the crew. Nearly every thins: movable was swept away, including the bridge, throe boats and many other dock materials. Of the 526 cattle on board, were killed and many more so badly injured as to be worthless. The boatswain and cook wore buried at sea. Too ship is in charge of the second officer, who describes the force and effects of the sea which swept the ship as to-rific buyond description, breaking up and twisting iron fastenings like pieces of tin. The condition of the ship after the wave swept her, the suf- ferings of the mangled men and frantic and dying cattle were awful to witness. S' LAST FIGHT. Notorious dives Battle to a PIM-.C and U Fatally Wounded. CITERUBOSOO, Ind., Dec. Kuhns, the desperado who is wanted in different localities for crimes ranging from horse stealing fco murder, and-for whose arrest reward is offered, was shot by Deputy Sheriff of Fort Wayne, near here Saturday evening.

A large amount f committe work was done and many mportant conferences were held by 'armers" Alliance delegates Sunday, 'his will facilitate the convention's work to-day and it is predicted that lore real business will be done than uring all the previous sessions put to- gether. The Macune matter is still talked about a great deal and not a few regard he report of the committee as a pare riece of whitewashing. When Macune .ddressed tho convention Saturday night le made a plain statement showing that n accepting from Pat Calhoun, a Georgia candidate for the Senate, bo took it as a loan. The National Econ- omist at that time needed money and Pat Calhoun advanced the as an accommodation, taking chocks drawn against the bank account of the Econ- omist as security. Macune's friends say that transportation over the West Point Terminal had been furnished Ma- cune some time before the Senatorial contest came up in Georgia, and was accepted by him as a courtesy ordi- narily extended to press representatires. As to the policy of the Economist, it is explained that the newspaper was owned by a stock company, in which the Farmers' Alliance has no proprietary in- terest. .By the terms of a business con- tract between the Economist and''the Farmers' Alliance, the company owns and operates the paper, Dr. Macune to be its editor and the paper itself to be the recognized organ of the Alliance, a bond of being given by the Economist Company, which is to be.for- feited whenever it breaks the specified terms of the contract as to etc. The Alliance has no power to remove Dr. Macune. .The Economist would sim- ply lose its advantagefligof being the recognized organ "if by aiy violation o policy the contract should become nul void." Before adjournment Saturday night Washington was decided upon as the place and the third Tuesday in Novem bar as the time for holding the next an nual meeting of the National Alliance. It is expected that strong efforts will be made to-day to revoke this action am mak Indianaoolia the pi ace of mooting 'It is alleged that tho national lead-its of the Democratic party ha've many lob byists here in thoir interests, and tna the policy of tbe Alliance in many re spects will be influenced by them, no- tably in the case of the Sub-Treasury .bill. That measure-is now under con fideration 'by the Alliance. It is pre dieted that when it finally comes from the committee it will have been modi fied and changed in many important par ticulars, with a view to making it ac cord1 with the Democratic doctrine t snch an-extent that it can easily be in dorsed by the National Democratic con vention in 1892, or perhaps be passed by Congress prior to that event The AJ liance Ocala platform could, it is al leged, secure recognition from the Na tional Democratic convention'and this with the indorsement of the Sub-Trea; ury bill, would place the Democrat! party squarely upon the Farmers' Alii ance platform. The third party movement, it is whis pered in some quarters, is a trick of the National Democracy to destroy the Re- publican vote in the West and North west and also the negro Republica vote in the South, and enabling th Democrats to secure success in noarl all the doubtful States in 1892. To-day" debate on report of the cotnmitto on the Sub-Treasury bill will eith strengthen or weaken theso allegations. A strong effort will bo made to allo.v press representatives to be present dur- ing the debate on the committee's re- port, as its result will be bv far the most important action of tho Alliance on any public measure which has a bearing on national politics. A Citizens' Alliance was formed here Sunday, looking to the establishment of local Citizens' AUiences in the various cities and large towns of the country. J. D. Holden. of Kansas, was elected president; R. Haauniont. of New York, secretary, S. P. Wield, of Washing- ton, treasurer, and these three also constitute an executive committee. Tho headquarters of tho Alliance will bo in Washington and later tho committee will be increased to include- a member for State. ?C.

Ia tke priwtt pcopow Report by an of CeoKus and Educational Who Good OpportUQttlM for WASHINGTON, Sheldon fackson, who was'last spring appointed. Jnited States General Agent of Educa- for. Alaska, having completed his abors, has returned to Washington and reported to Secretary Noble for assign- ment in the Bureau of 'Education. Mr. Tackson, in conjunction with his mis- sion for the Bureau of Education, was also an agent for the Census Bureau in ;he capacity of enumerator. Soon after lis appointment he started for Alaska and since that time has directed his at- ;ention principally to a thorough exam- nation of the condition of the their modes of living, education, etc. Se will soon begin the preparation of a report on those subjects which it is.be- .ieved will be one of the most valuable documents of its kind ever submitted to the Government on the needs and con- dition of tho Alaskan territory. Mr. Jackson was on board the revenue cut- ter Bear four months, which enabled turn to get at tbe heretofore inaccessible portions of Alaska, and to secure some valuable statistics respecting the num- ber natives now there. On the voy- age the Bear reached a point as far north as Point Barrow, where Mr. Jack- son established a school under the su- pervision of the United States, and which be says is the northernmost school in Nortb America. While he was chiefly interested in the subjects enumerated, Mr. Jackson also studied the fur seal' fisheries. He Is very emphatic in bis denunciation of the illegal actions of the British poach- ers and the "bulldozing" tactics of the English government against the United States. "If our he says, "doesWt immediately take aggressive measures to prevent tbe wanton de- struction of fur seals, this great and lucrative industry will, in a.year or so, be totally exterminated. Last year the Fishing Company ex- ecuted a contract with the United States agreeing to pay equlvalently dollars annually for the privilege o taking skins, but were unable to take more than while the British poachers swarming the waters In open defiance of our revenue cutters and-the laws of the United States, illegally an( indiscriminately captured 'more than seals. This number, however only represents about one-fifth of thai actual plunder, for while in an endeavo to capture them under water, tbe poach ers killed more than seals-which they could not'bring to the surface The officers-of the Bear, without order or authority, were powerless'to do any 'thing to prevent the destruction of th seals and tbe poachers in sheer defianc of their presence continued the destruc ,tive work as long as there was any thing in sight, until there are -very few '.live' seals remaining. "They indiscriminately o out of the catching the fe wale seal was treated with no more con sideration than the males. Young seals, almost unable to take care of them- selves in the water, were maliciously killed. 'They were not taken from tho rookeries by the poachers, as demanded by the contrict of a legitimate com- pany paying enormously for the privi- lege, but were killed by carbines di- rected by Indians in canoes, under the protection of English cruisers. It is ab- solutely necessary that tho United States should send her navy into those waters to seize every English poaching vossol found within tbe three-mile limit, illegally killing off the remaining seals. Three years ago tho rookeries at this soason of the year wore black with breeding seals, while now fioro are jcarcely any on them, and if nothing is done to protect the seals the industry in a little more that a year will have been totally exterminated. It may appear strange, but it is nevertheless true that young seals soon after their blrtb, if put in tbe water, will drown just like any other animal naturally thriving on terra firma."
