THREATENED RAILROAD STRIKE. An Exciting Debate In the Farmer's Alliance. Parnell Seems to be Ground Daily. Losingr Window on National By Associated Prens.J New YOKK, Dec. The Sun prinla a long reported interview on the finan- cial situation held by its Washington correspondent ith Secretary Windom. The Secretary says the Treasury De- partment is doing all it can to relieve the present stringency, and will con- tinue on the same line of policy fol- lowed up to this time. Thestringency is not the result of a contraction of the currency, he said, and there haa never been a time in the Government's his- tory in an era of peace when so much money was flowing out of the'ireaeury into the country. The Treasury has put out over within the last nineteen months, with no appre- ciable effect, and he thinks the money is hoarded up. The in gold held as the legal tender reserve will never be disturbed with his con- sent. He might possibly call on the deposited in the National Banks, but he docs not think this would be a very popular proposition at the present time. In conclusion, he said that whatever ho may do towards allaying the uneasiness in monetary circles, he dcas not propose to let the Treasury become bankrupt. NKW YORK, Dec. 8. The opinion on Wall street is that Secretary Win- dom's circular calling for proposals for the sale of 4 riercMt.- bonds as expressed this morhfng is favorable as affording some relief in itself to the monetary stringency, but still more so from Windom 'a state- ment to a New York correspond- ent published this morning. Wall street regards this aa an intimation of the future early action in this direc- tion on the part of the Secretary of the Treasrry. The improvement in the opening prices this morning is attributed as much to this anticipated action as to the circular calling in the 4 per cent. bonds. Parnttll To Take the Htamp. DUBLIN, Dec. 8. During the coming week Parnell will make an address at Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Water- ford. LONDOJJ, Dec. The Cork Exam- iner says Parnell's English career is closed. The Examiner thinks Par- nell has overrated his ability to secure a return of men to Parliament to take the places of the members who oppose his leadership. Parnell will be ac- companied on his coining tour through Ireland by the most active of his fol- lowers. Before his departure from England for Ireland, he will issue a manifesto to the people of the latter country, which will be signed by his supporters. In response to a call issued by Jus- tin McCarthy, the leader of the anti- Parnell section of the Irish party, all members of the party opposed to Parnell assembled to-day to further consider the line of polii-y to be adopted. Copied of the call were addressed to Parnell and his support era, but none of them were present. A council compesed of eight members, Messis. Abraham, Dillon, Healy, O'Brien, Arthur O'Connor, Thomas Power, O'onnor, Soxton and Sheehy, was appointed to assist McCarthy in in directing the further action of the party. The meeting was presidet over by McCarthy. An adjournment to 2 oVlook to-morrow was then taken Before adjournment, the meeting unanimously authorized McCarthy to prepare an address to the Irish pco at home and abroad. In this will give the present aspect of the Irish question and outline the furthe policy of the party. The Healy Gaelic Athletic Associa- tion has adopted a resolution request- ing Hoaly to abandon h is prewent sup- port of Parnell. An Karoewf OUenJtstan. By Asaodated PreM.] OCALA Dec.
