Beans for the beans, beautiful beans! Confidence In I'urncll. By Associated Press.] KANSAS CITY, Dec. 5. Irish- American meeting last night passed resolutions of confidence in Parnell, and denounced the attempt to degrade him. LONDON, Dee. Sexton, Healy, Leady and the two whips, Power and Deasy, with the exception of Parnell, being all of the committee appointed at yesterday's meeting to confer with Gladstone, drove to his residence this afternoon. All the members of the committee except the whips entered tho house. The con- ference was purely private, Before their arrival William Vernon Har- court and Granville, who had been in conference with Gladstone, took their departure. The conference with the Irish committee lasted an hour, and upon its conclusion the delegates re- turned to the room in the House of Commons in which the proceedings of the Nationalists are being held. Assurances were given by Gladstone to the delegates which fully satisfy a majority of the Nationalists. He will make a genuine attempt to deal with the constabulary and land question to the satisfaction of the Irish people. Gladstone declined to accept Par- nell's suggestions, and he summoned Morley and Sir Har- court to be received with the joint delegation of the two sections of the Irish party. He insisted if he received them the arrangements should his own discretion.- The Irish who to-day are acting for the Irish party requested Gladstone to unconditionally receive as delegates Leary and Red- mond, representing Parnell, and Sex- ton and Healy, representing Parnell's opponents. To this Gladstone con- sented. The colleagues of the Liberal leader were not present at the meet- ing. Their attendance was considered unnecessary, Gladstone having con- sulted them prior to the interview. Gladstone in no way pledged himself at the meeting. Gladstone gare the Irish delegates a cordial reception. He discussed the whole position of the Liberals, the present political situation and the probable effect of Parnell's retention of the Irish leadership on the Liberal party. Morley was present at the conference, and when it was over he remained, in consultation with Glad- stone. Subsequently he told the re- porters that Gladstrone did-not intend to publish anything regarding the meeting. The delegates were also re- luctant to give any particulars of the interview, which they regarded as strictly confidential. Healy and Sexton, the anti-Parnell members of the delegation, are satis- fied with the .result of the interview with Gladstone. The Liberal leader gave no definite promise regarding the points submitted, but said sufficient in their opinion to justify a majority i of the Irish party in considering his assurance satisfactory. When the Nationalists met at noon to-day, it was announced that the committee appointed to wait on Glad- stone had not returned froin_their mission, and an adjournment was taken until 4 o'clock pending their arrival. When the members reassembled a resolution was adopted empowering four delegates to negotiate with Glad- stone in connection with the ques- tions relative to the constabulary and agrarian difficulties. It is understood that Gladstone suggested this course with a view of placing the negotiations which may follow the conference which took place to-day between him- self and the Irish delegates on an au- thorized footing. The meeting then adjourned until 9.o'clock to-night. The resolution relative to Parnell adopted by the Catholic hierarchy of Ireland will be read in all the Catholic No such decision has beeu arrived at. It is true we have postponed holding a number of meetings which had been arranged for. This was done chiefly because to have held them would have necessitated a separation of the party, which was deemed inadvisable under existing circumstances. Furthermore, we felt if we held them we would be obliged to speak of matters concerning which we deemed it advisable to re- main silent for the present. Our atti- tmde is simply one of expectancy, and will so continue until a definite de- cision is reached on, the otlu-r side." 'The nisner Correspondence. By Associated Press.! WASIUSGTON, Dec. President to-day transmitted to the House the correspondence growing out of the killing of General. .Barrnndia by the' Guatemalan officers, on board the Pacific MaQ steamer Acapulco .in the port of San Jose. Secretary Blaine, in a letter laying the correspondence before the Presi- dent, said it wilt be observed that the last report of Minister Mizner, which contained matters essential to a full and accurate understanding of the case, was dated September 23d and not re- ceived at the Department until Oc- tober 9th, several days after the adjournment of Congress. The correspondence consists of ten inclosures. The first is a telegram from Minister Mizner to Blaine, dated August 28th, and the last letter was from Blaine to Mizner on November 18th, announcing that he can see no justification of Mizner's course; that this Government disavows his action, and directing him to turn over the affairs of the legation to Kimberly and return to the United Spates.
