While still sitting at the table after eating his meal, Mrs. Bridgman, his daughterinlaw, and her little son, entered the d!n-ing room saluting him with the compliments of the morning, which elicited no reply. Mrs. Bridgman approached nearer to him and again saluted him, this time /aying her hand upon his shoulder and looking into his fam*. She so.in dis-overed that something was wrong by hi-appearance which was comporatud by the raising of his finger to his lips, a silent and sad token that he could not, respond with speech to the morning salutations. The girl who waited upon him at break*a- -did she discovered nothing unusual except lie complained that one of his arms hat! troubled Iiirn during the night. Hrs. Jenkins and Seroggs were at once summoned, and it was given out last evening that he could hardly survive during the night. His strong constitution, however, causal him to partially rally and at th -writing he is still lingering with s«arcely a hope of his living only a day or two at longest. General Bridgeman is a marked character wherever he is known, and he has a very extended acquaintance in Iowa as well as in other states, lie was noticeable for being tall and erect, with a face indicating intelligence and firmness of character, and was remarkably well preserved. To see him walking the streets the casual observer would tiik• * him to be a man of perhaps sixty, or surely no', live years older than that.. He had none of that shakiness usually accompanying old age, but walked with a s'.eady step and wrote a bold business hand without a trace of the years That were upon him; yet lie was born July ti. isos, (ming over eighty-two years of age. He is a native of Hampshire, Massachusetts. He came to Burlington in ls3s, where he engaged in the mercantile business for six years From there he removed to Bayfield, where he resided until 1849, and during his residence there was for a time register of the general land office. In 1849 he came to Keokuk and until 1861 na' engaged In mercantile pursuits. After that he engaged in railroad business to which he gave his entire atten- WILL OPPOSE PARNELL.

Queer Complication* Arising In the Banna* Legislature. Topeka, Kan., Nov. 28.—At the meeting of the state board of canvassers last Monday, V.- E. Lobdell, delegate-elect from Dane county, demanded a certificate of election as member of the 1< gis-tature on the ground that the constitution said that each county In the state which has 250 voters should be entitled to a representative. The demand was refused, and an application was made to the supreme court for a writ of mandamus to compel the board to issue the certificate. There are eighteen other delegates entitled to full membership on the same ground. The constitution a.so limits the number of members to 125. If the delegates are admitted an equal number of members-elect from the more populous counties will have to be dropped to keep the number within the constitutional limit. The delegates are pledged to Ingalls in case they are seated, and they will give him eighty-three votes on joint ballot—the number required to el**ct. lf they are not seated and Senator Ingalls is defeated the p an of the republicans is to contest the emotion of bls successful opponent in the United States senate oil the ground that the delegates were entitled to their seat*, and that their votes would hav** eleoi‘*d him. If they are seated and an equal number of member-elect are not dropped the house will number 143 member, or eighteen more than the constitution pro vides for, and a contest will be instituted in the senate because the legislature will be an unconstoitnal body A Ho ut lug Party Drowned OSWEGO, N.

Ile begins by saying:    '‘Tile integrity and independ ence of the section of the Irish parliamentary party having been apparently sapped and destroyed by the wire-pullers of the liberal party, it has become necessary for me, as the leader of the Irish party,to take counsel with you, and, ha\ ing given you knowledge which is in my possession, a.-k your judgment upon a matter which now solely devolves upon you to decide. The letter from <!:ad-stone to Morley, written for the purpose influencing th)* decision of the Irish party iu the choice of a leader arid claiming for the liberals and their leaders Upright of veto upon the choice is the immediate cause of this address, the purpose of which is to remind you and your parliamentary representatives that [re-la ,d con-iders the independence of her party as their only safeguard within the eonstitation. and abow* aud beyond ail other considerations whatever. Tile threat in that letter repeated so insolently on many platforms and In numerous British newpapers compels me t>> put before y u information which, until now, has been solely in mv possesion and which will enable you to understand the measure of I) ss with which you are threatened unless you consent to throw me to the English w jives now howling for my destruction.” Parnell then tells how at Hawarden last November, lie received from Gladstone the details of that gentleman and colleagues’ proposal with regards to home rule in th)* event of the next general election favoring the liberal paity. Upon Do* subject of retention of Iri>h members in tbe imoeriai parliament, Gladstone tole! bim iii order to conciliate English public opi' ion, it would be necessary to reduce the Iri'ti representation from 103 to 32. Upon the settlement of the laud question, Mr. Gladstone intimated while he would renew his attempt to settle the matter by imperial legislation on the lines of the land purchase bill of 18st», he would not undertake to put any p»-e'sure upon his own .side; in other words that the Irish itgisiature wa* not to be given tile power of solving the agrarian difficulties. With regard to the control of the Irish constabulary it was stated by Mr. Gladslone, in view of the necessity of concealing the English public opinion, it would be necessary to I* ave this force to the appointment of its officers under the control of the imperial authority for an indefinite period, while tin* fund' for its maintenance would be compulsorily provid'd out of the Iri-h revenue. A period of ten or twelve years was suggested as tin* limit of time during which tin* appointment of judges ai d resident magistrates -hoi:i i be retained in tim hands of the imperial authorities Passing to his own expressions on tin")* points, w iiu ii I'arnell says represent lbs views Ilion aud now, in* says with regard a) the retention of Irisit members in* holds that with the concessions of full powers to an irish legislature equivalent to those enjoyed^ by a state of tbe American union, the number ami p -i-tion of members so retained would become a question of imperial concern and not (if pressing or Immediate importance for the interests of Ireland, but that w ith the important and a.I engrossing subjects of agrarian rcf*>rom, constabulary control and judiciary appointments ieft either undi r imperial control or totally unprovided for, it would be the height of madness for any irish leader to consent to disband an army which had j cleared the way to victory.” "I further | undertook,” saws Parnell, ‘*to use every j legitimate Influence to reconcile I run public opinion to gradual coming into force of the new privileges and to th*-[*. stponments necessary for English opinion with regard to constabulary control and judicial appointments, but I strongly dissented from the proposed reduction of the number of members during the Interval of probation ami pointed to the absence of any suitable prospect of land settlement by eith‘-r parliament as a constitutional and overwhelming drag upon the prospects of permanent peace iud prosperity in Ireland.” At th)* conclusion of the interview Par iell was informed that, pending the general election, Gladstone and his coll* agues wert* agreed that silence should be preserved with regard to these p lints of difference. The absence of any provision for the settlement of the agrarian question, of any policy on tin* part of the lib* ral leaders, Parneli says, tilled him with concern and apprehension. * Hi the introduction of tm* land purchase bill by the government at the commencement uf the last session, Morley conferred witn him and, having regard to avowed absence and poPcy on th** part of the liberals, Parnell strongly advised Morley against any direct challenge of the principle of state, aided land purchase ai d that w>* should direct our efforts on th** second reading to the assertion of the principle of local control. In this Morley agreed with him but was at the same time, hampered by the extreme section of his party, led by Laoou-phere, and in a subsequent interview impressed upon Parnell th*- necessity of meeting the second reading of the bill with a direct negative and a.'ked him to undertake the motion. "I agreed on condition that I was not to attack the principle of the measure but confine myself tocriticis n of the details.” “I think,” continued Parnell, “his was a falso strategy, but was a strategy adopted out of regard to English prejudices and radical peculiarities. I did the best possible under the circumstances, and several day.-' debate on the second reading contrasts favorably with Laboucher's recent abortive attempt to interpose direct negative to the first reading of a similar bill r* sterday.” Just before the commencement of this session Parnell had another interview with Morley and itnpr**s'**d upon him the policy of the obi que method of pro-ceedure with reference to land purchase, ami the necessity arid importance of providing for the question of local control and limitation in the application of I funds. “He agreed with me.” says Par- j noli, “and I offered to move on the first ] | reading of the bill an amendment in fa- [ vor of thi.' local control, aivising if this was rejected It might b** left to the radicals on lh** second reading to oppose the principle of the measure. I left Morley under the impression that this would fall to my duty, but in addition he made a remarkable proposal Referring to the probable approaching victory of Hie liberals. he sugge>ted some considerations as to tile future of Hie I ri-h party and a-ked me whether I would Ie* willing to assume the office of **ni**f *ecr**tary for Ireland or whether I would allow another member of my party to take th** position. He also put before me the desirability of filling one of the law office* of the crown In Ireland by a legal member of my party. I told him, amazed as I wa* at the proposal, that J could not agree to forfeit in any way the independence of th** party or its members; that the Irish had trusted me because they believed th** declaration I made at Cork in 1880, represented my conviction and that I would on no account depart from it. I considered that Morley'.- proposal, that we should a low ourselves to be absorbed into English politics, wa> un** ba-ed upon an entire misconception of our own position. In eonelusioti, Morley direct***! my direction to tin* plan of campa'gn of the tenants. II** .-aid it would be impossible for tie- liberal party when it attained p >wer to do tnything for lh** evicted tenants by direct action and it would alo be impossible for I he Irish parliament under powers conferred to do anything for them, aud. Hinging up his bauds in gesture of despair, he exclaimed:    'Having been it; ripperary, I don't know what to propose.’.. I told him tiffs question was a limited    one;    funds would    be    available from America and elsewhere for the support tho-e tennants a- long as necessary and this difficulty should not be allowed to interfere with the general interests of th*-country.” Parnell says he alludes to this matter only h -eau-)* w ithin ti *- last few days a stroi ur argument for pulsion    bas    been made.    I    i liberals    com**    int** power next    * th** plan of th** campaign tenants    will    stiff r.
