WASHINGTON, September o'clock the conferees on tho tariff bill separa- ted, after having been in session since 10 o'clock. Mr. Carlisle said that the report was not probable before tomorrow. Mr. Hiscock said that the situation was just as it had been __no agreement had boon reached on sugar or binding twine. A settlement of tho differ- ences might be made at any moment, and there might not be an agreement at all. It can be stated with almost absolute certainty that the bill will be reported tomor- row morning, but upon what basis the ex- pected agreement will be made is still un- known. The iron and steel men have give n up all hope of securing a change of rates on steel bil- lets which remain as fixed by the eenate at 4-10 of a cent per pound when valued less than a cent a pound; 5-10 of a cent when valued at 1 cent a pound. The republican conferees on the tariff bill have definitely decided to reportthe bill back to the house. The conference report will an- noaiice an agreement on each and every item in dispute between tho two houses, and will not as has been stated, be only a partial re- port It will be presented to the house of rep- resentatives very soon after that body mpets tomorrow morning, and there is a confident expectation entertained by the conferees that the ronort will be considered and disposed CHARLESTON, S. C., September Tillman ticket nominated by the democratic btato convention September 10th, has by no means been elected as yet. A bombshell was exploded today by the republican state executive committee, which threatened to put an entirely different phase on the matter. THE TICKET SUGGESTED. The committee was authorized by tlso state republican convention to put out a atato ticket if they deemed it advisable. It has transpired that the committee has acrreed upon a tickot, J.the composition of which leaked out today. It is as fol- lows C. Haskdl. Lieutenant Bratton. Secretary of Q. Marshall. A. Ancnim. Comptroller "W. Barnwell, Attornfy H. Earle. Adjutant L. Bonham. Superintendent II. Rico. All the nominees are atraightout demo- crats, who oppose the Tillman niovoment, and most of them opposed it on the Stump. THE REPUBLICAN CLAIMS. The republicans claim that the ticket can be elected oven without the aid of white votes. There are colored voters in the state against about whites. Of the colored they say over are registered and qualified to vote for state officers, and they can poll of these for this strnightoxit democratic tickot. Be- sides this, they claim democratic voters will join them in voting for this ticket, as against fcno Tillman ticket. Even if there should be no opposition, it is estimated that Tillman will not be to poll more than votes in tho entire state. THE DISCONTENT INCEKASING. Since the Btraightotrt democrats abandoned1 tho fight against Tillman tho discontent has been m the party, and the republicans count on these opponents of Tillman to cee that there shall bo a fair count. Tho Tillman leaders here are very woir.od about it. One of them said toJuy that if Ilabl.oh allowed the negroes' to vote for him there would be moro negroes killed in November than wero killed in 187fi. The republicans say they don't care whether the men they nominate decline to serve or not, they will vote for them, and the straightout demo- crats may do as they please. All they are expected to do is to see a fair count of tho ballots. AHEAD.

GOSSIP. Tho Bona Public Enildtaff Cor Tampa, Eto, from the report given c J partmenteach day that u public building in Tampa, Ma- h A WU was today introduced in the house Wr But Another Primary Will to Decide. SPAKTAVFUKG, S. C., September tlio olhcial returns in the congres- sional race are in, and there is no election. There would probably have been a farmers' candidate returned if the vote had not been divided between so many. The voto was a light one on account of county com- plications, and the fochng that the real strug- gle was to come in the second f-vce. The of- ficial returns tonight the following totals for the district: Shell, Duncan, Manldm, 782; McKissnck, 561; Smith, Shell represents the farmers' movement, and Duncan the straigbtout democracy. The final test will be made on November 7th. Smith andMcKissick have both notified Major Duncan that he shall receive their support in the next lace, and Mauldin will doubtless likewise throw Ina influence to him. The farmers, however, are very strong in the dis- trict andean elect their man if they turn out in full force. But the contest will he very closo. If another light veto liko the present is cast, Duncan will be the man. but whoever wins will a mighty small majority, SKNATOB VANCE TAIKS. He Characterizes Quay as a Condemned Criminal. RALKiaH, N. C., Seotemhor There was today a large addition to tho num- ber of members of the democratic clubs hero at tho state convention. The event of the day was a speech by Senator Vance, which was one of his best, and which occupied over two hours The senator was introduced by State Auditor Sauderlin, and his argument mainly upon tariff questions Many farmers' alliances were interested listeners and made numerous demonstrations of ap- proval of Vance's powerful presentation o; the oppression of the farming interests by the republican congress. He said protection was a sham, and that half of the Kew Englanc factories were oporated by foreigners, who are not oven naturalized, and cannot speaK English, bat who do nothing save work for their employers and masters, and illustrate the beauties of protection. Vance spoke of tho republican leaders, aud referred to Chav man Quay as a condemned criminal, who had the good fortune to sit in the senate with hon est and respectable men. At the concmsioi of Vance's speech a barbecue was served, ant Congressman Bunn made a speech. Ihe jEepuWicane Despondent. Bicmrox-D, Va., Tho republican district committee made an other unsuccessful attempt to have a meeting today to decide-n hether they will call aeon vcntion. Only two members wore present and they decided to issue another call for Uc- toberTtn. Captain W. JT. Wickham of Han over, has written to Colonel Isormand Smith of Henries, stating that he will not be t a.can didate lor congress. He says the republican are hopelessly disrupted and disorganized 11 this district, with no leader and no cnanc of electing their candidate. The Bleu Were Discharged. September morning nearly all the colored hand in, the preliminary work on the flour mint romptly disch rapidly filling their places. DCBEXIV September O'Brien, bo was arrested at Cardiff on Tuesday, was ronglif to this city yesterday, and placed in risen. The police refused to give any in- ormatiolt as to when he would be taken to 'ippqrary for a hearing. But late last night so nationalists learned that he would be con- eyed there by a morning train today, when ley at once made preparations to give him a orthy escort. Much to the surprise of the uthoritiea a large delegation of prominent ationallsts hoarded the train at the same me tho officers appeared with O'Brien. Among these were John Morley, ho has been in Ireland some time studying he InsU question; John Dillon, Alfred Ilting- 'ortb, member of parliament for Bradford; T. I. Healy, Commoner, Harrington and several thers. On the arrival of the train at ippcrary the nationalists started for the conrt- ouso in a body. They had not gone far hen they stopped at a street corner and en- ,ered into a conversation. ATTACKED BY THE POLICH- "WTille standing in no way disturbing the olice there, they were ordered by the police o move on. John O'Connor, member of par- amcnt tor South Tipperary, took very vigo- rous exception to this order and showed his ontempt for the police by calling npon the rowd, -which by that time had become large, give three cheers for John Morley. ?he cheers were given with a hearty good will, much to the exasperation of the police, who thereupon charged upon tlie group and ttempted to force it to move forward. In the melee that followed the policemen did not jsitate to use their batons. One burly constable aimed a olow at John lories' himself, but John O'Connor, who tood near, warded it off. Tho nationalists continued their way slowly "towards tlie ourthouso. As this was the day fixed for the trial of the arrested nationalists, the streets of Tipperary wero full to overflowing with people interested n the case. Kationalistshadthrongedto town com all adjacentparts, many of them carrying tlio national weapon, the shillalah, and pre- tared to use it if provocation would arise. STILL AJTOTHKB ABB.EST. ;y in. the day it became known that still .or arreat had been, made. The victim his time was Thomas J. meruher of parliament for Tipperary East. Ho was taken his morning at Limerick and also brought to Tipperary. When tho hour for the sitting of tho court arrived, an immense crowd Lad collected be- ore the courthouse, ready lo rush in the mo- ment the doors wero thrown open. Tho au- horities theieupon decided not to open the doors to the general public, but to admit only those who wero immediately interested in the trial. The crowd did not take kindly to this treat- ment, but pressed forward, trying to force a way into the courthouse. The police stoutly resisted, charging repeatedly upon the crowd, and using their clubs freely on whoever hap- pened to be within reach. Many of their jlows took effect, but the crowd did not yield instantly. A EHOUI.AB BATTLE. For fully five minutes there was a stand-up fight between the now excited throng and the police. At last, however, the crowd was gradually forced back, and the police succeeded in main- taining a clear space in front of the coui't- louse. The leaders of tho crowd continued to make vigorous protests against being excluded :rom the courthouse, and tho police were jeered at and taunted. Many people were tturt by the policemen's clubs. One man had his teeth knocked down hia throat. Severa] required surgical attention. TIMOTHY HAERINGTON INJUBEIX Among the wounded were Timothy Harring- ton, member of parliament for Dublin, ano !r. Halifax. Both had their heads cut aiic came into tue court with blood dripping over their coat collars and faces. Their appearance created a profound sensation, as Mr. O'Brien as at that moment denouncing the wanton clubbing of the populace, which he had just witnessed. KOKX.BT APPEALS TO THE COURT. Then John Morley arose and addressed the court, manifesting great agitation, both ii tones and manner. He earnestly appealed to the court to protect the populace against the the wanton nse of clubs by the police. Meanwhile the nationalist leaders continued to protest against the exclusion of the genera public from the courtroom. Both, Morley ant Dillon appealed to Colonel Caddell presiding magistrate, to reverse his decision to keep the doors shut against tho public. For some time h< refused, hut at last he yielded and ordered the doom thrown open. The room -was at once filled to its utmost capacity, and all the pro- ceedings were followed with intense Interest At the ontset Mr. Dillon objected to being triedbefore Resident Magistrate the grounds that he had had a personal en counter with Shannon on one occasion a Cashel. At thai time he asserts that Shannon had grossly insulted him. He urged, there- there would be manifest impropriety in Shannon's sitting at tho present trial. SHANSO1T OVEBEUI.ES TEE OBJECTIONS. Judge Shannon refused to admit the validit; of Mr. Dillon's objections. He know of reason why he should not go on with tb.e case He declared that he would perform his duty without bias. "William O'Brien also objected to Shannon The last time ne sawfJhamion, he said, Shan non was at the head of a body of police wh were using their clubs upon the people. More over, Shannon, had already tried him thre times on similar charges. His sitting' in th present case, Mr, O'Brien said, was an inde ceney and an insult. The magistrate answerex O'Brien's objections in the same way that lie had disposed Dillon's. Mr. Konan, counsel for the crown, asked per mission, of the court to make some slight alter in the charges against the prisoners, Th latter protested vigorously such per Hiisiion, urging that it would oo illegal. Th court no. heed to the. but pei ed counsel for the crown to make the desired THE BROSECUTIOS OPENS. Bonan then proceeded to open the case for IQ prosecution. Ha reviewed the circum- ances which had led to the arrest of the na- onalista back to the time when tlie plan of ampaign. was put in force on the Smith-Barry state at Tipperary. That happened in May, H89, and he proposed to present vidftnee to prove conspiracy on ie part Of the defendants from that time awn to the time when the arrests were made, uring all that period he proposed to prove tat the defendants were consniringto prevent he payment of rents to Smith Barry, and ere inciting the tenants of that gentleman ot to pay. The defendants protested against the intro- uction of evidence touching matters that rere anterior to the dates specified in the warrants upon which they were arrested. After considering these protests, the court ecided that the prosecution might produce estiiuony of a general character to prove the listeuce of conspiracy prior to the dates iven in the wariants, but that no evidence ould be permitted concerning the acts of efendants which were done anterior to the atos mentioned in the warrants. JOHN MOKLEY TAKING NOTES. The excitement of a week ago, the rrests of Dillon and O'Brien were so suddenly iade, has its counterpart in nationalist circles oday. The dispatches from Tipperary, describ- njr tho clubbing of the crowd before the court- ouse by tho police, created a profound aensa- on at the national league headquarters. The ction of the police was denounced as a gross utrage. The fact that John Morley is present t the trial is considered a subject for much ongratulation. It is thought that 10 trial will ftfiford him more insight ito tlie true inwardness of the Irish problem, vhicli lie came to study for himself, than weeks of ordinary travel and investigation. Ie will be able to tell the English liberals, with more force than ever, what the Irish teople have put np with at the hands of the after his rough experience at Tip- perary. The nationalists are confident that, what- ver tho outcome of the trial may be, the rutal police episode and the evident re- uctance of tho court to the public will not in- rease the popularity of Balfour's rule. After the court had given its decision in the matter of tho protests, Mr. Ronan, on behalf f the crown, continued to recount the events hat had occurred in 18H9 in connection with the carrying out of the plan f campaign. He was interrupted by comments and protests of de- endant's counsel, who objected vigorously to lie presentation of matters with which counsel laimed their clients had nothing to .o. Mr. Healey declared the whole hing a patent sham, and demanded that ounsel for the crown come to the particular ,cts with which the defendants were charged. Ir. Ron an, in reply, protested that it was en- irely out of his power to shorten the proceed- __t this point a proposal was made to adjourn, whereupon Patrick O'Brien interposed an ob- ection, complaining that his time was being yasted in consequence of his illegal arrest. To this Mr. Ronan took exception, declar- ng that the arrest of Mr. O'Brien became egal when the latter arrived in Dublin. Mr. thereupon arose, and was about to oave the courtroom, but several constables tarred the way, and he was compelled to re- iain. After a consultation with Mr. Healey, O. O'Brien consented to give bail. Alderman Dillon, of Dublin, here applied, through for summonses against Sergeant Kennedy, of thepolice force, for assaults upon lirnself, Mr. Harrison, who represents tho middle division of JTipperary in parliament, and others who were assaulted on the way to ,nd outside of Tipperary courthouse. The macpBtrates, notwithstanding many protests, declined to grant the _desired iummonses, but referred Alderman Dillon to another magistrate who, it is will jrant the summonses, and have Sergeant Ken- iedy brought to the bar to answer for his con- duct. After tho question of summonses had )eeri decided, the presiding inagistiute an- nounced adjournment till tomorroiv, and the defendants, and their lawyers, followed by a throng of spectators, left the courtroom. KHGLISH COMMENT ON THB TEIAL. LONDON, September News Tippe- rary correspondent declares that a marKod change occurred in the demeanor of the police, when Mr. Morley issued from the court, on the appeal of several voicesimploringhim to come and save the people. Evidently the police lad no desire to treat tho English com- moner j with discourtesy. A brutal police attack was made on Mr. Keating, proprietor of The Limerick Leader, who was so severely njured that ho bled profusely from the mouth. In. an editorial, The Kews Bays: "On this occasion, the presence of Mr. Morley has given au importance to events which arc commonplace in Irish administra- tion. Messrs. Morley, Ilhgworth and their English colleagues, deserved the thanks of every friend of peace and conciliation." The Chronicle says: Morley's life is of so nvicti value to the state that we are compelled to protest against his en- tering such scrimmages. Irishmen will easily misinterpret his presence, but for which it is probable the not would not have occurred. Out of foolish deference, the police allowed him to enter court, causing a clamor tor the admission of the crowd. GEKMAN GOSSIP. Sooial- The Kew Minister ot Wai lats.

PABIS, September monarcliist jour- nals express approval of the letter of the count of Paris lo Senator Bocber, justifying the course he (the count of Paris) took in liis dealings with the Boulangists. Republican papers atrongly condemn the count's action, and accuse hin of admitting dishonorable compromises, and acknowledging that he waa preparing to sacrifice the country to hia ambition am hatred. _______ The National Conereai CntcnrKATi, September Nationa Prison Congress Association of humanely in clined persons, and of persona whoso duties are in connection with prisons and reformatory work, begins its annual meeting in this city to- night.
