in his determination In no way torecognixe Par null as the leader of the Nationalists and his position is emphasized by the letter in which he oilers to conduct negotiations with a now Irish leader on a footing of oonlklencft equal that which he once accorded to Parnolt Tho reading of the was grooted cheers by the section of the party opponing Famuli and ironical cries by his Hupportors A stormy debate followed Barry Sex ton and Healy made a determined attempt to bring about a final sottloment of Lho question Thoy insisted that there be an Immediate division of tho members on the main

we were going to Ireland tomorrow they clamored for a decision because they dreaded the lightning of public opinion In Ireland Gentlemen we have won today Loud Although our ranks are reduced I hold this chair still Although many of our comrades have left us Ireland has the power to ill their places and send us good men and true for every one of those who have left us and I little know our

Gladstone In his letter to the Nationalist eetiiig acknowledges tho receipt of t esolutions adopted by Irish causo and ays in that the question raised by the publication of his leitar to Morley was a question of leadership which is separate and has no proper connection with homo rule When the Irish party has settled this question in such a manner as will enable me to renew my former relations with the Irish party it will bo my desiro to without prejudice into confidential consid eration of all amendments and sugaestions of improvements in my plan for a home rule measure I assure you it is my desire press forward at the first favorable oppor tunity a just and ellective measure for home rule I recognize and earnestly seek to uphold the independence of the Irish party no less than that of

Dubois WASHINGTON Dec 6 Special to interest is now being taken in the Idaho Senatorial fight Con gressman Sweet has steadily maintained a strict neutrality between the con tending factions He is In bad humor to day however over telegrams and letters received from Idaho stating that his name Is being used against Dubois Interviewed on the subject he said Yes 1 received telegram just a moment ago and a letter this morning The letter calls on me to go to Idaho and declares that tho Injury to Dubois caused by the stories and rumors of the character mentioned can bo fairly met only by my appearance on the ground to personally contradict Will you go1 No I cannot leave nor get permission to leave I believe the statements I have re ceived arc exaggerated not purposely but under the excitement of tho impending struggle If I thought tho situation as bad as indicated I would go and take the chances on having a writ of attachment sent after me I have not meddled in tbo Senatorial fight The people elected me to the lower House and if I succeed there it will keep mo busy without attempting to manage tho Idaho Legislature Besides I know most of tho members and know that they can neither be bought or bamboozled I think it comos of the excitement rising from the contest at hand Naturally everybody ia suspicious of every body else Doubts ru mors fears and scandals fill the air Be sides I have steadily declined to bo Inter viewed and it Is said that by refusing to speak at all 1 am reported as being against my old friend This Is nonsense I much prefer to continue the silence thus far maintained but I will not allow my name be used against Dubois Jackson told Buchanan thsit he once know a man Jn Ten nessee who got rich by attending to his own business I think however that I may say propriety that any two of the four dates for the Sonatorship are well equipped in fitness character and ability for the po sition and I can work with anytwo of them in perfect harmony I would not lay a in the way of any of them nor will I allow myself to be used against Dubois Mr Du bois and campaigned Idaho twice when seven Republicans out of ten thought we would lose Tn Congress he
