He commends the state department's policy of reciprocity with great cordiality whole with equal warmth he stands by the tariff measure of last session as loyally as if there had been no election. His opinion that no one yet knows the general effect of this law, and that the evils ch arg *d against it before the election wore based on misrepresentation, is an opinion which no one except an extreme parisian would think to-day of contra-dieting His commendations'of f he election bill will bo a prelude for early action in tho senate.

Tile purpose for which the committee was organized is to take the preliminary step toward holding a congress of delegates from all the republics of the world ac some point in ihe United States during the Columbian Exposition. To thecongress will be invited all the eminent friends of popular government. The aim of tile congress will be to knit the various republics into closer bonds of sympathy with each other.

They are belter armed now than ever and their supply of horses all that could be desired. Every buck has a Winchester ride and knows how to use it. They '-an live on cattle, arid numerous horse ranches will furnish them with fresh stock when cold and starvation ruin their mounts.

Ocala, Fla., Dec. 2—The National Farmers’Alliance and Industrial Union me- t at noon to-day, nearly all the delegates had arrive d and w'hen they were called to order President Polk delivered h” annual address. The address congratulated the alliance on its achievements since the last meeting and reviewed the causes of tho agri-eultnral depression, declaring this depiction is an anomaly to the students of industrial progress. The harm incident to centralization of money power and the upbuilding of monopolies were pointed out and both political parties condemned for forcing and encouraging this condition. With reference to extending the order the president urged that additional organizers be sent at once into Oregon, Washington, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Arizona and other stages. Among the recommendations was one that an organization be formed to be known as a national legislature, composed of the nutioiiHl president and presidents of a1! stat»alliances, it* duty being to look clo-eiy after legislative reform demanded by the alban.'.o both in state legislatures and congress. In his remarks upon the propos< d national legislative council, President Polk said an organization of this kind would wield a power which would enforce the respect of any legislative body to which it might appeal.Touching upon the political action of the alliance, President Polk said: “While our organization is political it cannot bo partisan or sec tional in it* action. In support of this declaration we proudly point to our whole past record and to the recent popular election.” Outlining the future national policy of the alliance, President Polk said it would demand the restoration of silver to all the rights and equalities of legal tender which gold possesses; the issue of government currency direct to the people; the equalization of taxes; the prohibition of alien ownership of land; the ownership and control of transportation lines by the government; the limiting of public revenue* to an economic administration of the government; a graduated taxation of incomes, and the election of United States senators by a direct vote of the people. President Foulks, of the South Dakota alliance, made a short address, speaking forcibly upon the breaking down of the sectional lines. An old union soldier from Indiana moved that all ex solders in the hall who endorsed these sentiment* rise. Forty or fifty stood up amid the wiliest enthusiasm. Then au exsoldier from Wisconsin called upon all union men to give three cheers for the old confederates in the alliance. They were g'ven with a will, after which the confederates returned the compliment in a manner that left no doubt as to the genuineness of their feeling. Expressions of dissatisfaction are heard with reference to the conduct of Dr. Ma-cone, editor of the N< it vinal Economist, in taking part in the recent senatorial tight in Georgia. It is also charged that he violated Hie policy of the alliance in advocacy of the Conger lard bill and opposition to the Paddock pure lard bill, and in several other ways. This matter will come up for consideration In a day or two and will likely cause consider-abl * debate. The alliance opened it* first busine*s session t.o-ntghc and from now on all the sessions will be secret. The annual meeting of the National Colored Farmers’ Alliance will be held to-morrow. The organization embraces twenty-two states and has a membership of over seven million. One of its chief objects is to divide the negroes politically, which, of course, means taking a large number of them into the voting ranks of the democratic party. with hisses. The chairman made a violent speech in favor of Parnell. A resolution calling ou Ireland to support him, carried with a few dissenting vote*. RAILROAD MATTERS.

Dec. 2.—As the inevitable hour draws near in which a conclusion must be reached by the auxiouHy deliberating Iri*h nationalist parliamentarians as to the future leadership of their party, the attention of G adstonoan liberal*, liberal unionists and t^ry members of the house of commons steadily concentrates itself upon tho room wherein the Irish patriot*, confronted by a* great a danger as ever threatened their country, are groping about for some path which may load them out of the laby-rlnthlan difficulties of the present crisis back to the highway of success so lately and hopefully traversed by them. Before the hour appointed for the convention of to-day’s se**ion of the conference had arrived members of the house. English arid Irish politicians aud an array of newspaper men hovered about the approaches to the Irish parliamentary quarters and eagerly discussed the probable effect on the situation cf Parnell's blunt speech of yesterday, of the counsel of the delegates to the United States and of che act of Archbishops Walsh and Croke. The opinions were a* num.iron* and diver*e as the individuals giving utterance to theta. On one point, however, there seemed to be an unmistakable unanimity of opinion among the Eaclish liberals. They bitterly re*ented Mr. Parneii’s savage characterization of Mr. Gladstone a* “A garrulous old gentleman.” The bow delivered on the face of their idol seemed to have touched their hearts as well. Shortly before the hour of meeting arrived the approaches to the room were cleared, and those persons loitering in the vicinity were kept under a close but unobtrusive surveillance by tho.-e directly interested in the proceedings. London, Dec. 2.—The Irish members of the common* held another meeting today which was presided over by Mr. Parnell, and wa* an exceedingly exciting session. A sharp controversy took phi rn concerning the cab’e <ii*pa! im* sent the delegates in tho United Slates for the purpose of influencing their action. John O'Connor declared that the business was conducted fairly. He justified Parnell’* action in Issuing a manifesto and condemned the misleading cable dKpatehe* sent to the delegation in the United Suites. Mr. Campbell described the proceedings of Parnell's opponent* a* infamous. Further recriminations were Indulged in regarding the Informal meetings held Saturday. Mr. Healy described the action* of Parnell’s friend* a* obstructive. Parnell denounced th" remark a* insolent and impertinent. This wa* greeted with cheers cf approval by Parnell’s friends, who were answered by a veil of derision from his opponent.*. Barry tried to say something in reply, but Parnell would not allow I im the floor. Leanly said the telegrams to America from Sexton and others had produced a false Impression by implying the majority of the leading men f the party were going in one direction. William Redmond said he beard the delegate's cablegram was read by certain men cf the party in an English club, arid received with cheers. If Parn*-1! is to be deposed, said he, in God'* name depose him w ithout making it a matter for cheering In an English club. The amendment that the question of the retirement of Parne!! be postponed until the members ascertained the views of their constituent* rejected. Arthur O'Connor advised Parnell to withdraw, as henceforth it will be impossible fur him to I e the leader of the party. Jordan accused Parnell of sacrificing the cause of the nation to hi* in*anate pride and culpable ambition. At six o'clock the meeting adjourned for an hour. I pen reassembling Kenny declar I it possible to obtain home rule without forming an alliance with the Eng!i*h party. Parnell, he sp,id, had been offered an honoraOlft compromise. The Chiarman—What wa- it? Kenny—To ret'ie temperately. B it, instead of accepting this offer. Pan,> ii i**ued a manifesto debarring him fn rn the chairmanship henceforth snould th* majority of his party decide it would be best for him to retire. Why did Porn'I! in June express implicit belief in the good faith of the liberal party, having the Hawarden interview in mind? He (Kenny) had little hope for the future of the Irish party if they depended upon the chairman to defend them from the chicanery of the English statesmen. Irishmen looked to their representaHvc* iu the house of common*, not to Parnell alone, for their salvation. The meeting here adjourned for dinner. The vote on Nolan’s amendment wa* 44 to 29. When the meeting reconvened after dinner Parnell said he d< sired to explain the misunderstanding between himself arid Lane arising out of Hie Barry incideht. Healey complained of Parnell’s unfair methods a* < hairman and a heated altercation ensued. When the debate wa* resumed, it was finalh elicited that Parnell’s secretary, < lmp-bell, gave Mr. Tuory, of the Fret nvtn'ii Journal, hi* own opinion that Parnell would voluntarily retire Tuohy repeated this in the lobbies of parliament. After soma talk the subject wa* dropped. The minority voting on Nolan’s amendment were John I*. Nolan, Joseph Nolan, Plane, Byrne Corbette-lanoy, Campbell, Dalton, Fitzgerald, Edward Harrington, Hayden, W. MacDonald, Justin Huntley McCarthy, Harris, M. Kenna, Maloney, Maguire, John Oconnor, Ohanlon, Okelly, Parnell, Richard Power, Quinn, Jno. Redmond. William Redmond, shiel, Conway, J. F. Kenny and Loamy. Messrs. Carew, Gil-hooly. P. Obrien, Leahy, LaLer and Mahon were absent. No demonstration was made over the result of Hie division. In t h® Loin Ilion*. London, Dec.

A half hour was occupied in reading te'egram* from Ireland and the United States and manifests sent by delegate? now in th United States. The reading of these dispatches was frequently interrupted bv cheering. J. O’Kelly asserted it would be the basest ingratitude for the nationalists to abandon Parnell simply because a number of politicians who sought alliance with the Irish party for theii own advantage thought fit to abandon the position Parnell had taken up and had intrigued to encompass the downfall of the trusted leader of the Irish nation. After adjournment for luncheon the members reassembled and Farnell moved to adjourn to enable the nationalists to take part in the debate on the second reading of the land purchase bill. It I* said that no stone will be left unturned to postpone indefinitely tne decision of the party on the question of Parnell’s retirement. Alabama Coal Miat-r* Go Oat.
