meeting adjourned till noon tomorrow At tho of tho meeting today Sexton denied that ho had ever proposed Mutt Parncil retire from public lifo and said lie only meant that ho should retire from tho chairmanship ofthe party Parnell proceeded at length with the Clancy proposal He decided that ho could not bind himself to retire until ho could see Gladstones reply His position had been granted him not merely as the leader of his party but tis tho leader of the Nation This lias beon derived from circumstances In which speaking with tho greatest respect his hearers had no share After speaking of his services in assimilating and soothing tho prejudice of tho discordant elements of hhe Irish throughout the world Parnell said know and T know that there is no man living if I am gone who could suc ceed in reconciling tho feelings of the Irish people to the Hawarclen proposals As you wish to withdraw from mo this responsibility I think it only reasonable that you should give judgment on these matters for thebene U of yonr constituents Therefore I sub mit this tho party accept no Homo Knlo bill unless it gives immediate control of tho police and power to deal with tho land W r Gladstone is capable of work ing to secure a majority attho elections which will render him independent1 of both tho Irish and Conservative parties If you throw mo to him got my value by securing the pledgoof a satisfactory Home Rule Healy expressed amuzomont at Parnells speech and protested against adding new conditions to the Clancy resolution Par noil ho said wanted to withdraw the ques tion on the

ho would stand or you will Whats the uso of further discussion A tremendous uproar followed Loamy shouted Away with him John OConnor shouted Crucify him and scenes of wild disorder followed quiet was

Gladstone and finishing by asking Who broke tho Aliance Parnell and Nolan both exclaimed Glad Healy rotor tod vJt perished from the stench of the divorce Iarnell replied that if tho Gladstone let ter had not been written tho alliance would have been Healy defended Gladstone He said that Parnell had bespattered that gentlemans gray hairs with mud and now wanted the Irish members hat in hand to go and ask Gladstone for terms If Parnell succumbed he was only one man gone Heads of greater leaders had been stricken pi at the block before now for Ireland but the Irish cause remained Sexton said ho had listened to Healy with regret Would Parnell resign he asked if a majority voted for the acceptance of Glad stones reply Barry asked for further explanations and Parnell I havestated with distinctnessihatI will not give fur ther A rumor was circulated this afternoon to the effect that Clancys amendment had boon rejected Inquiry proved there was no truth in the rumor On the contrary the

the Irish members on the value of Glad stones assurances Tho supporters of Par nell aro eonlident that Gladstones assur ances will prove inadequate The report from Cork last night that the municipal

Manning in which he says his opinion is admirably expressed by the manifesto issued by the Irish hierarchy which he believes will pain influence be cause it took due time to consider the quest irm before issuing tho manifesto Ho thought the manifesto would carry great weight both in Ireland ind America Ho agreed entirely with tha views it expressed both politically and morally but Parnelis retirement should be made compulsory on moral grounds politics being a secondary consideration Parnells followers however wore justified in demanding his resignation on political grounds alone
