O'llHIKN TO PARNELL.
New York Dec. 7. To Parnell M. P.
house of commons London (confidential):
I shrink with horror from taking sides
against you in the struggle which
opens such appalling rrofpects of ruiu
and disgrace to our cause. Throughout
this unhappy business I have abstained
from sayincr one word personally offetuive
to you and have read with the deepest pain
and disgust some of the personal attacks
.made on you and now before Ireland is ir
retrievably committed to ruinous conflict
appeal to you as a leader I have for ten
years been proud to follow as a friend to
whom I still feel a warm affection can
yni not see some way by which while
safely guarding your own repniaiion the
country may be saved from the destruction
which threatens it?
(Signed) Wm. O'Brien.
PARNELL TO O'nKIEN.
. London Dec. 8. To O'Brien Hoffman
House: Had you wired prior to Saturday
some suggestion from me might have smc--ceeded.
Now it is to late for me to rescue
the seceders from their false position. I
V shall however be very glad to see and con-
sult vou on your arrival in Europe.
Signed - Parnell.
In addiiion to the above Mr. O'Brien has
forwarded the following to-day:
o'llKIKN TO PARNELL.
NkwJYobk Dec. 9. To Parnell house
of commons: I regret to find mi-leading
ersions of my confidential cablegram pub
lished in the press. Your reply shows a
total misunderstanding of my message
-which was prunipiedby a regard for your
past services and by still existing per-
sonal affection and sent witn the
Knowledge of my colleagues here
in the earnest hope that you
might in consonance with the will of a
majority of the party whose election ol
chairman we have endorsed find a waj by
3 which ihe country might be saved from a
ruinous conflict. The tone of your reply
leaves little ground for the hope but hav-
ing record to the horrible consequences to
the country of a prolonged internecine
-struggle I am still anxious to have an in-
terview and shall start Saturday for
.France on my way to L eland. I am com-
municating this to the press.
' Wm. O'Brien.

" Tr- great period of time with letting go by a
very great opportunity for helping the

Vibe election bill was then taken up and
Senator Berrv addressea the senate in op-
position to it." He entered his earned pro-
teat against it as being a bill not to secure
absolutely fair elections but to legal ze
fraud ami to enable men to be counted in
and returned to congress who were de-
feated at the polls .
At the close of Senator Berry's speech
Senator Aldricb from the finance commit-
tee reported back the house bill to author-
ize the payment ot drawback or
rebate in certain cases (to correct the en-
rollment of the tariff bill) and asked
unanimous consent to have it considered
but Senator Plumb objected and the bill
was placed on the calendar.
The debate on the election bill was re-
sumed and Senator Daniels addressed the
senate in opposition to it. At the conclu-
sion ot Senator Daniels' speech Senator
George obtained the floor and af er s short
executive session 'he senate adjourned.
In the morning hour the house resumed
consideration of Plumb's resolution looking
to the removal of the remains of General U.

it was defeated by a vote of yeas 93; nays
Mr. Lanham of Texas asked unanimous
consent for the immediate consideration of
a res Iution calling upon the postmaster-
general fr information relative to com-
plaints of citizens of Texas in consequence
of irregularities of the postal service al
let'eil to he attributed to superlative bid
Mr. Dintrley. of Maine asked that the
resolution be broadened so as to upply to
other states and Mr. Lnnha i assented but

rent year is the increase on appropriation
for army transportation of $2SO000.
COMPOUND LARD BILLS.
Two bills imposing a tax UDon comnnund
lard were today reported without recom-
mendation by Senator Paddock from the
committee on agriculture. Both bills are
similar in purpose to Drovide for the imno-
silion of a tax upon and the regulation of
me inanutacture oi compound lard. The
Dins were reported without recomrnenda
t'on in order to avoid the re-opening of the

hearing ot argument which would neces-
sarily have greatly delayed any action
upon them by the committee

from the committee on agriculture and
forestry today .reported favorably a bill

of Labor assembled this morning at 9
o'clock. It was announced that the na'ion-
al associatk f reiail clerks of the United

of the auditing committee was then adopted.
Among the resolutions submitted wus that
each member of the local national or inter-
national be assessed ten cents a quarter for
the strike fund from which all men on
strikes are to receive $2 per week. Iiefer-
led to committee on runs iiuiion.
A long line of resolusions was refened
among them a resiution to take the tele-
graphs out of the hands of monopolists and
place them in the hands of the govern-
ment. This resolution was applauded as
nlo one to hold a world's labor congress in
Chicago in 1893.
A peculiar resolution looking to the de-
feiiMi of members of i lie unions in the
Federation from the at'gressions of the
Knights of Labor created considerable
amusement. Other similar resolutions fol-
lowed and showed considerable antag-
onism between the grand divisions of labor
especially in New York pity. All were re-
ferred. A sharp resolution looking to opposition
to police aggression and esneciallv the
armed police of Pennsylvania was greeted
with applause A change in the constitu-
tion was asked for limiting the election of
president ol the federation to two consecu-
tive terms. The federation wa asked to
endorse woman sulierage. Various resolu-
t ons looking to boycotting manufacturers
supporting of various union strikes and re-
quests for co operation and assistance to
organize a large number of unions of feder-
ation were offered.
MiMi-ius. Tenn. Dec. 8. Frank W. Mc-
Gregor managing editor of the Evening

grand jury for violation of the lottery law.;
After the last drawing ot the Louisiana
loory the Democrat's New Orleans corre-
spondent wired that paper the winning
numbers held by the Memphis paper's peo-
ple. A proof slip was submitted to Post-
master Patterson who wired the attorney
general at Was lington. His decision was
that ihe publication would criminate the
publisher. The Democrat published not
only its experience with the postoffice de-
partment but also the objectionable list.
Hence the action of the grand jury.
