This bos boon a day of excitement and sensa- tions m the house. greatest parliamentary battle of tho .session was fought between the two parties. democrats came out victorious this after- noon, but the chances are that it is only a temporary victory. Tbe republicans not only liave the majority, but they have the ipa- chinery and the rascality on their aide, THE FIGHT OPENS. The fight opened this morning -when Heed counted a quorum. It was evident that a quorum ns not m tho house, but that he had .simply counted them in bis own mind. There only fifteen democrats on tho floor. "Under this count, Rood had tho journal read, but tho vote, on approving it, disclosed the fact that there was no quorum present, and a call of the houso was ordered. This brought the desired quorum, and Reed ordered the clerk to call tho roll again on approving the journal.

"While the officers were examining the clothing- and. effects of the suicide, a messenger rushed into the station bouse and cried out that a woman bad .shot herself at 140 Canal' street. The keeper of the Germania cafe there had found Emilie Rossi, an actress, who boarded in the bouse, dead, shot through the heart. One window of her room overlooked the south end of the uptown platform, the one which the gateman had seen opened previ- ously, and irom which the sound of the second shot was heard. Behind lace curtains, a woman had sat waiting for the trysting death signal. It had come, and at the signal the man fell dead under the win- dow, and she shot herself to ;tUe heart within.

THK TWO WOMEN WON. DUBLIN, September 18. Mr. John Dillon was arrested Jihis morning, at his residence near this city. Ho conveyed on a special train to Tipperary, accompanied by a large military escort. Mr. William O'Brien was ar- rested at Glengnxiff and taken to Cork. War- rants have been issued for the arrest of Messrs. Shee'dy and Condon, members of the house of commons, Patrick O'Brien and Rev. David Humphreys, of Tipperary. Tho charges on which Mr. Dillon was arrested are conspiracy and inciting tenants on the Smith-Barry's es- tate not to pay rents. Mr. Dillon v as not arrested at his home, as stated, but at the residence of his uncle, whom he was visiting, at Baliybrack. The special train made only a brief stop in Dublin, and proceeded to Tipperary, the tenants of which town he is charged with having incited by his speecli to refuse payment of rent to their land- lord, Smith Barry, The arrest of William O'Brien was made at Glengariff hotel. Mra. O'Brien was present at the time. The charges against Mr. O'Brien are similar to those against Mr. Dillon. In addition to those already mentioned, it is ascertained that a warrant has been issued tor Mr. Dalton, who has been active in the work of the Land League- THB POLICE WATCHING HEADQUARTERS. Here in Dublin tho police are keeping a strict watch of the headquarters of the land league. Persons entering or leaving sub- jected to close scrutiny. Dispatches from Tipperary report that organizers of the local branch of the league there are under close police surveillance, and are being constantly shadowed. This special activity of the police leads to the belief that the authorities are con templating further arrests, 9 OTHER AB.RKBTB TO BE MADE. It is considered altogether probable that war- rants are already out against many leaders in the land league of secondary rank and import- ance, who have made themselves obnoxious by the active part they have taken in the recent anti-rent campaign. No one will be surprised, therefore, to hear, at any moment, that othef men have been taken into custody. This sud- den action of the governmenthas fallen like a bolt from a clear sky. Iri-rfi nationalists had no suspicion of the impending blow, and are at a loss to know what it portends. Mingled sur- prise and indignation are the predominant feelings in Dublin today. Dispatches from various parts of Ireland indicate that the nationalists are everywhere greatly excited. The arrests were ao utterly unexpected that the surprise with which they were first heard, soon, gave way to a feeling of suspense as to what the government would do next. Increase 12 IT per cent.

The Republican State Convention In South Carol iu n. COLUMBIA, C., September The republican state convention re- convened this morning, at 9 o'clock. The committee on credentials reported in favor of seating all tho Miller delegates. The conven- tion is now discussing this and perma- nent organization has not yet been effected. Miller now has control of the coineiition, and no doubt liis man, o Smalls, will be made permanent chairman. The con- vention is a very noisy body, and works slowly. Miller and Webster are working together. Miller is the conteste for Elliott's seat in con- gress, and "Webster is collector of internal rev- enue, who succeeded Brayton, who was re- moved by President Harrison. After a -sharp contest, Miller and "Wheeler captured tho convention, and made George "W. Murray, a negro of Sumter, permanent chair- man. Brayton was entirely ignored. Since the nomination of Murray, Bray ton's friends have determined to'pnt him in the field as a candidate for congress against Miller in the only republican district in the state, the sev- enth. This will insure the election of a dem- ocrat and the return of Congressman Elliott. There is a stronsr disposition to nominate a state ticket, and the question ia now being dis- cussed. A platform has not yet been reported by tho committee.________ PACKING 3PORK II Tbe Opelika Terminal.

RICHMOND, Va., September The chamber of commerce tonight decided to call a convention of merchants and farmers to meet in this city some time in November, to consider matters relating to the railway service of Virginia. It is proposed to try and agree upon the features of a bill to be presented to the legislature making many changes in the railroad laws. It was also decided to elect at least one well known farmer in each county an honorary member of the chamber, in order to increase the usefulness_of that organization. Tbe Crop Coming: in Early. RALEIGH, N. C., Septeniber The cotton receipts here will he the greatest on record in September, There is no doubt that nearly the whole crop in this section will be open by the end of the month, .and the main trouble will be securing enough hands to pick it.

He will likely toelyncaeU In Tipperary court, formal evidence of the arrest of Mr. O'Brien was -given before- Magis- trate Irwin, and Mr. Ronan, who conducted tbe prosecution, asked that Mr. O'Brien be remanded until Thursday. Counsel for Mr. O'Brien cross-examined Inspector Roffer, with the view of showing that, although Mr. O'Brien had committed the alleged illegal acts in June, no steps had been taken for his arrest until it was hoard that h-e was going to America. Inspector Roffer denied that tho mission to America had anything whatever to do with the case. Mr. O'Brien here remarked that tho whole world knew tbe government's motive for making tlie arrests. Mr. O'Brien -was admitted to bail, Canon Cahill being his surety. On tbe application of Mr. Ronan, war- rants were issued for tho arrest other members of the National League. There was a slight disturbance outside the courthouse here. A large crowd of people, accompanied by a drum and fife baud, were waiting at the station for Mr. Dil- lon, who was driven in the mayor's carriage to his on n residence, where he addressed the people from tho steps. He said that the niora frequently arrests were made, the more res- olute Irishmen would become in tho national cause. DILLON SATS IT IS A MYSTERY. Mr. DUlon, in an interview after his arrest, said that tho object of the government in tak- ing such a step is a mystery to him, unless it was their intention to prevent the misbion of himself and associates to America. He was aure, however, that the Americans would not deprive the tenants of Tipperary and other estate of needful support, although it might be impossible for Mr. O'Brien and himself to go to America and make a personal appeal in their behalf. In his opinion, the arrests would do more harm to opponents of the tenants than a dozen public meetings. Mr. Dillon also remarked that the coinci- dence of a priest denouncing Irish agitation at the ery moment when the warrants for the arrest of himself and his associates were being drawn, would appear to many not to bo a mere accident. Happily ho bad satisfied himself that the reports of dissension in the Irish party were unfounded, and their ranks prescntedjan unbroken front. DISCUSSED IN LONDON. LONDON, September wag no abatement of interest throughout tho day in Irish arrests. Up to 7 o'clock this evening no definite information had reached London o specific utterances of Messrs. Dillon ant O'Brien, on which warrants for their arrest were based. Neither had the governmem given out any official explanation which would throw light upon their sudden and unexpected resort to a vigorous Irish policy. It is coin monly supposed tonight that the ostensibl grounds for Mr. O'Brien's arrest are to be found in the very plain speech that he made last Sunday to an assemblage of peasants a an insignificant village, in the county of Cork named Schull. He dwelt upon the of the potato crop and spoko of the gloomy outlook for wide- spread distress which Ireland must face thi winter. "Warming to his theme lie said: "J7o tens of thousands of small farmers throughou Ireland it will become a question this winter whether they are to have food or their land lords." Confronted with such an. alternative ho thought ttfere should be no hesitancy as tc the choice. He advised tenants on every tate to meet and consult as to what proportion it any, of their rent they conl honestly pay. When that questib had been determined, they should all abide b the decision. If the farmers, he said, shoul give tp the-landlords money which was neede to buy bread for- their children, Irish leaders wonld not dare to appeal to the world to com to the rescue of such a nation ol slaves. Bu U the tenants would absolutely relafie to pa a penny of rent until every family that tUIe soil was placed beyond the reach: of starvation then U the government evicted le from their poor homes, it would be swept ut of existence by a torrent of English indig> ition and the whole civilized world would ind money and assistance for tho benefit of enants. Tho one topic in London today is the news rom Ireland of the arrests today. The gen- ral feeling is one of profound surprise, as tho overnment bad kept its secret so well that o.hint of its intended an Lion had reached ublic. No explanation for the reasons of ther, course has as yet been vouch- afed. On all sides doubts are freely expressed to the political wisdom displayed, but it isv oo early to estimate the effect of the arrests n public opinion in England. WHAT THE PARNELLITBS THINK. The Parnellites, while greatly surprised, are y no means cast down. Their experience in ie past leads them to take a philosophical low of tbe situation, and to expect, as a final utcome, advantage to their cause. Their ieory of the arrests at this particular juncture that the government decided on them in rder to prevent the departure of Messrs. illon and O'Brien to America. This the gov- rnment wished to stop, the ParnelHtes iert, because they feared that the effect op ie speeches of tho Irish orators fu America ould be to create a fresh and striking urst of American sympathy with the Irish- ome rulers, which would be of great moral', elp to the liberal cause as championed by ladstone. "WHAT MICHAEL DAYITT SAYS, Michael Davitt was interviewed this after- oon in regard to tho arrests. He took a x-ery opeful view of tbe situation, and thought fleet would be entirely favorable to the Irish? .ause. If Dillon and he said, "had berately set out to devise plans for increasing ie popularity of the plan of the campaigu antt eightening the prestige of the land league, hey could not have their pur- >ose in. any way more successfully than by in- ucing Balfour, chief secretary for Ireland, to .ake precisely the step that he has taken of is own volition. It is just what they 'here bad begun to be a feeling in Ireland iat the plan of campaign had been carried1 ar enoucb. These arrests will bo sure1 to ouse sentiment in its favor again. Balfour as not niad0 a greater mistake since he hast' ieen in chief authority over Ireland. MB. PABNBLL "WILL CALL A MEETING. The PacneUites havo expected a general aid bj tbe government with tho view to sup- >ress the national league all around. Mr. Parnell is to make arrungements for an early meeting of his In London, T. P. O'Conner and Jauies O'jvelly will Drobably take berths on the steamer Teutonic, ivhich Dillon and O'Brien had secured for jassage to the United States. Mr. Dillon was also bailed, giving as He vras remanded until Thursday. ?he warrant mentions offenses occurring ba- iweeu March and September.
