STEWART The Report of the Secretary of the Treasury. Further of the Fan- horat Trial. A Fmtmttl Conference. By Cable and Associated Press 1 LONDON, Dec. and bio supporters held a conference in the library of the House of Commons this morning. The meeting of the Irish members of the Commons to consider the ad- visability of removing Parnell vras re- snuied at noon. was the of the party to arrive. The reporters were excluded. It is expected a meet- ing of the Liberal members of the Commons and Lords will shortly be held to consider the political situation. Half an hour was occupied in read- ing telegrams from various persons in Iieland and the United States, and the manifesto tent by the delegates of the party now in the United States. The reading of the was fre- quently interrupted by cheering, J. O'Kelly asserted it-a.wonld be the basest ingratitude for the Nationalists to abandon Parnell simply because a number of politicians who sought en alliance with the Irish party for their own advantage, now thought fit to abandon the position Parnell had taken. An adjournment for lunch was taken, and when the members re-as- sembled at 2 o'clock, Parnell moved to adjourn to enable the Nationalists to take part in the debate on the sec- ond reading of the land purchase bill. No stone will be left unturned to postpone inde6nitely the decision of the party on the question of Parnell's retirement. All hop -s of the National meeting reaching a decision on the main issue to-day is abandoned. Arnold, Morley, Sir George OTrevelyan, Campbell, Bannerman, Sir William VernonHar- court, Earl Granville and Shaw Le Fevro assembled at Gladstone's resi- dence this morning and conferred an hour with the ex Premier. A meeting of the Natknal League branches at Ballylanders sent a dis- patch to Finncane, declaring that he must either support Parnell or resign. At Abbeybix, Queens county, the Board of Guardiato resolved to sup- port Parnell. The Board declared that while rents are still too high, the reduction made was due to the efforts of Parnell. A sharp controversy took place con- cerning flip cable dispatches sent by the delegates iu the United States for the purpose of influencing their action. Kenny admitted that he cabled his views to the delegates. Sexton said the supplementary cable in the party's name afttr the conference held on Friday night did uot accord with the arrangements made in the conference. John O'Connor declared that the business had not been conducted fairly. He justified Parnell'a action iMt issu- ing his manifesto and condemned the misleading dispatches that were sent the delegates in the United States. Campbell described the proceedings of Parnell's opponents as infamous. Parnell was appealed (to to decide whether the expression used by Camp- bell was ordarly. He replied that the country would decide as to their pro- ceedings. Further recriminations were in- dulged in regarding the informal meet- ing held on Saturday. Healy de- scribed the action of Parnell's friends as obstructive. Parnell denounced the remark as insolent and impertinent. This state- ment was gieetcd with cheers by Par- nell'a Mends and wus answered with cbeera of derision by his opponents. CUICAUO, Dec. rington, ..lie only one of the Irish del- egation here in favor of Parnell, to-day received the following telegram from Redinoud and Kelly, supporteni of 1'nrnell: "Return to England at onc-e if you want to eave the party. Affaire are in a critical condition and vour help is much needed. I implore iiie other members of the party to come also." Harrington could not be found, I'Ut Dillon disclaimed any knowledge of the cablegram. i Special to the OAZETTE.I SUTTKK CIUUSK Dec. onel S. D. Stewart, brother of Senator Stewart, and superintendent and a large owner in the Lincoln mine, died morning of apoplexy. Deceased WM well known in mining circles. Mecretary By Atsociated PreM.] report of Secretary of die Treasury Windom, for the year ending' June 30th last, shows: Total receipts, expenditures, theise sums are exclusive of the postal seA vice. The principal items of receipts are. custom's, internal revenue, profits on the coinage of bullion deposits, etc., sales of public land, 272. The principal expenditures are, civil list, pensions, military harbor and arsenals, naval establishments, miscellaneous, including public build- ings, lighthouses and collecting the re venae, interest on the public debt, Estimates for the present fiscal year, revenue, expenditures, E timates for the year ending June 30th, 1892, revenue, ex- penditures, The Secretary recommended the dividing agencies into three groups, each making payments quart- erly at different periods, so that paj- ments shall be made from the treas- ury each month te avoid the lation of pension funds. He recon> mends an increase of the permanent appropriation for the expense of col- lecting customs revenues, the pay- ment of fixed salaries, for collecting the customs, the consolidation of cus- toms' districts, abolishment of oaths to monthly accounts by customs' em- ployes, the repeal of laws requiring bonds to be given by individual im- porters upon the entry of merchandise Tor warehouses, and a revision and codification of the customs laws. The increase of money in circulation on October 1st, 1890, over October 1st, 1880, was of which, was gold coin, in silver dollars, in gold cer- tificates and in silver cer- tificates. The Secretary then comments on the silver legislation of the last session of Congress and the operations of the Treasury under it, and expresses the belief that the new law will eventually be generally approved. The coinage during the year was the largest in the history of the country, amounting to The mines in the United States yielded during 1889, 000 in gold and in silver. It is estimated that the stock of gold and silver in the United States on November 1st. last was The Secretary recommends a repeal of the Act of May 26th, 1882, author- izing the exchange of gold bars for gold coin at the mints and at the assay offices of New York, on the grounds that it has facilitated the movement of gold from this country, and that the Act be modified to make the exchange discretionary with the Treasury De- partment, and allow a charge equal to the cost of manufacturing bars when intended for export. Legislation is also recommended looking to the recoinage of the sub- sidy silver coins in the Treasury, much of which is uncurrent.. Referring to the steady falling off in the value of merchandise carried in American vessels, the Secretary re- commends vigorous and efficient measures in behalf of the rapidly van- ishing foreign merchant marine, and he renews his recommendation in his report of last year for legislation to that end. The Secretary recommends the adoption of the metric system at the Custom-house, beginning on January 1st, 1895. Further legislation is recommended to prevent the immigration to this country of persons unfit for citizen- ship, including evidence of character, before our consular officers abroad. This he considers necessary, because of the increased undesirable character of immigration arising from cheap steamer fares. He says the Department has not re- laxed its efforts to secure a strict en- forcement of the Chinese Exclusion Act. The organized attempts made by Chinese laborers to force their way into the United States by way of Mex- ico, British Columbia and Canada have been efficiently met, and this unlawful immigration is not only checked, but in most instances wholly arrested. He says the policy of re- turning the Chinese to their own country will be continued if a sufficient appropriation is made. He nrges legislation creating ports for delivery in Alaska, and also refers the lease of Seal Island, and successful operation of the Civil Service Department. The Paabomt Trial.
