A Grand Success
The third unnual banquet of the Young
Men's Kepublican club, of I'lattsinouth,
was given lust Friday night at the "Wa
terman opera house. It proved a most
brilliant success from every standpoint.
The hall was urtistically decorated with
national colors. One of the attractive
features of the decoration was two large
American flags hanging gracefully over
the stage, and under them the Hag of
Irelaud. The banquet tables were made
into two extending diagonally across the
room, crossing at the center. The tables
were spread with white linen and pro
fusely decorated with flowers and cover
ed with tempting viands, all the delica
cies and substantial of the Benson being
represented. The feast began at 9:20 and
continued till all had satitfied their ap
petites. There being ubout one hundred
At 10 o'clock the president, Mr. L. A.
Dorringtou, annouueed the opening of
the after dinner programme. The ad
dress of welcome was made by
J. B. STRODE
of this city, who recited in a few words
the great things accomplished by the re
publican party. Ue also mentioned the
rapid growth of industries and echools
made under republican administrations
and in behalf of the Young Men's Repub
lican club extended to the guests a hearty
welcome. Mr. Strode then read letters
of regret from II. II. Shcdd, A. S. Fad
dock, Charles F. Manderson and John
The toast, "Republican Nebraska," was
responded to by
GOV. JOHN M. THAYEB
of Lincoln, who spoke for some time in
in a comical strain which caused a great
deal f laughter intermingled with ap
plause, but as the governor deepened in
his subject his expression became more
sincere and laughter turned to hearty ap
plause. Mr. Thayer began with the ear
liest days of Nebraska when the democrats
were about the only party here and the
republicans were so few they hardly
dared to stir for fear of tho jeers and
taunts of the other party. At this time
slavery was being introduced into Ne
braska, and in 1851 Gov. Thayer and
about thirty other republicans succeeded
in holding a convention in Plattsmouth.
It was the first one held in Nebraska, and
from then on the party grew rapidly till
18G0 when tho republicans succeeded in
electing large enough majority to the
state legislature to declare that "slavery
should then and forever be wiped out
from Nebraska." The governor contin
ued his review of "Republican Nebraska"
up to the present day and rebuked the
first district heartillv for permitting a
democrat to represent them, but he com
plimented the Y. M. R. C. for its push
and earnestness and said it was a good
example of what should be in every city
in Nebraska, His closing thoughts were
for Ireland, in which he expressed a de
sire to see her soon a free nation.
Gov. Thaver was followed by a toast
on "The Signs of the Times" by
JUDGE F. M. BARTLETT
of Omaha. The judge was of the opinion
that "TheSignes of the Times" showed it
necessary that there should by two par
ties, one to watch the other, and so long
as the repuplican party remained, wheth
er in ofliee or out of othce, the govern
ment remained safe. He thought it was
right for the republicans to hold office
under a democratic administration, and
he believed Cleveland 6howed his good
sense by not turning them out.
From appearances the judge was al
most alone in his opinions, and although
applauded at intervals his toast did not
take so well as some others. Mr. Bartlett
was followed by a toast entitled "The
Success of Ireland's Strujurle for Justice
and Liberty" by
HON. PATRICK EG AN
of Lincoln. lie spoke as follows:
Mil President and Gentlemen:
In behalf of the cause with which it
my privilege and my pride to have been
so intimately associated, and in behalf of
my brother Irishmen, . both those who
think as we do here tonight in American
politics and those who differ from cs, I
have to thank the Young Men's Republi
can club of Plattsmouth for the senti
ments conreyed in the toast, which you
have so cordially received, Sentiments
which must go straight to the heart of
es in this action to be used as evioence on me 1 ITt is a trreat pleasure and a

couragement to find the justice of Ire
land's demands becoming so well under
stood and so heartily approved by the
great liberty-loving people of America,
because in this age when the pen is not
less potent than the sword, when the force
public opinion is oftentimes more power
ful than armed legions, the intelligent,
the disinterested opinion of sixty millions
of American people must make aye anl
is making itself felt in behalf of Ire
land. Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael
Davitt, Justin McCarthy and all the lead
ers of the Irish movement at home appre
ciate this warmhearted American sympa
thy as their mainstay. "While Gladstone,
whom I have always spoken ot even
when I was most bitterly opposed to his
policy as the greatest statesman of this
generation, has stated that there is no
other factor in the present struggle on
which he sets more value than the sym
pathy and encouragement he is receiving
from this side of the Atlantic.
This broad generous American sympa
thy is best described in the burning
words of one of America's most brilliant
and patriotic sons a man of whom every
citizen of this land, regardless of party,
should feel justly proud JameG. lilaine.
(Anlausc.) Mr. Blaine in his great speech
at Portland, Maine, a year ago, after de
scribing how England, while apparently
not appreciating her own course toward
Ireland, had never failed in the hist fifty
years to extend her sympathy, and some
times her helping hand, to oppressed na
tionalities of Europe struggling against
tyranny said: "The people of the United
states therefore imitate many examples
of England and quite apart from any
consideration, except the broad one of
human fellowship, stand torth as the
friends of Ireland in Iter present distress.
They do not stand forth as democrats;
they do not stand forth as republican;
they do not stand lortu as Catholics, tney
do not stand forth as Protestants; but
they stand forth as citizens of a free re
public, sympathyzing with freedom
throughout the world." That is the sym
pathy we of the Irish movement seek;
that is the sympathy we appreciate and
which England appreciates, to; and such
is the sympathy conveyed in your toast
here this evening.
There are those who say that participa
nt in this Irish struggle lessens our al
legiance and interferes with our duties as
American citizens. I can best answer
that statement by quoting an old adage
which I first heard from my friend Alex
ander Sullivan, of Chicago. "A bad son
never made a good husband." Find me
the Irishman who disowns or is a rene
gade from his native land, and there are
a few such creatures to be found, and I
will show vou a bad American citizen, a
corrupt American politician; but get me
the man who is a true lrisn nationalist,
who has never forgotten his suffering
motherland, never forgiven her tyranni
cal oppressors, and in him you will find
a citizen ready at a moments notice to
shed the last drop of his blood for the
preservation of the great, the glorious in
stitutions of his adopted country. A.nd
whenever it becomes necessary to uphold
the Union or to avenge an insult to our
starry banner, he will be found in the
front rank of Americas ueienuers.
There are certain politicians who never
trouble themselves regarding Ireland uu
til about election times when they discov
er a deep interest in the cause and they
aro tlif neoi ile who srcnerallv set up the
claim that in order to be a true Irisman
one has trot to be a good democrat and
that to be anything else is about the same
thiutr as beinc a renegade. JNow, l nave
never met amongst my Irish republican
friends a sincle one who disputed for a
moment the right of any other man to be
and remain a democrat so long as his po-
srrnnnthies led him that wav: but
awvs J - - '
I have met innumerable Irish American,
and even French, American democrats
who could not understand how or by
what process of reasoning I, an Irishman,
had dared to become a republican who
hold, in fact, that every Irishman should
lAiiifciat. I state from here to the
neoi.le who hold those views that I re
gard such a proposition as an nibun
broad, epen insult to my common sense
and to the common sense of the thinking
element of my countrymen; and I further
tell them that the day is long past when
rtv or an v set of men can claim a
liinrtacre on the votes oi lnsumen.
No man in America to-day respects
more cordially than I the opinions of my
Inmost, earnest democratic friends and I

the nations of the world.

our nationality who came from the north
of Ireland and happened to profess the
Presbyterian creed endeavored to distin

countrymen by calling themselves Scotch
Irish, a term which I never heard uttered
extept in America. Our northern friends
can now gracefully lay aside the adjec
tive Scotch, for I thank God that the term
Irishman is not any longer limited to
any class or creed, but embraces every
son of the old laud, no matter what
province of Ireland he came from and no
matter what way he says his prayers, or
whether he says any prayers at all; and I
think we Irishmen, democrats as well as
republicans, should feel glad that our

Mr. Egan was followed by an address
entitled, "The Kepublican Press," by
II. M. JiPSIINKM.
of Lincoln. Mr. Bnshncll had not had
time to commit his toast to memory and
so was compelled to speak from his cop-
py. His address was as follows:
Fellow Republicans ok tmk Y. M.R.C:
The republican press was the outgrowth
of a principal in the unerring progress of
humaue government. The revolution
came that applied the torch to the signal
hre upon the mountain that tree son, iree
speech and free men should prevail in
the republic, and at that hour ihe repub
lican press was iu existence. It came like
the product of dragon's teeth sown in the
night a mailed warrior.
U came with honest manhood ot the day
To cope with wervile doublings ana uec.y.
But the republican press came not with
out bitterness and struggles and sacrihce.
In the older days when Faust with his
invention of movable types abandoned
his trade of .ilver smith and introduced
to Paris his new invention, he paid the
common penalty of primal reformers.
And yet on the very foundation stones
of the prison where he perished stands to
day the office of Le J'ettit Journal that
has double the sworn circulation of any
paper on the earth. Four centuries since
have seen the same eliniaxe's reached.
Before the new party was formed in this
country that was to prevent disunion and
preserve, in fact, the republic, the penal
ties were being paid for free thought and
free speech by pioneers of the republican
1 . ... .i..i5.i i
press. Ana the pioneers were in lueneiu.
as the republican prcsss oi tociay is array
ed against the reaction and nonprogres-
ion of bourbon democracy, so were the
pioneers in the republican press forever
with their faces et against the "progress"
of the democratic press, that in the days
of the fifties preferred disunion and dis
honor and ignominy to its life long and
never ending policy of masterly inactivi
ty. The pioneers of free speech who were
rejected, persecuted ana aespisea ny tnose
who attempted to build up a party urns
fell short of the absolute tenets of free
speech and free men, became the chief
corner stone of the republican press when
the republican party united on its onward
march. . .
The New York Tribune founded by
Horace Greely, the Albany Journal with
the then venerable Thurlow Weed at its
helm and scores of other journals find
their destiny in the ranks ot a new party.
But free speech had its champion and its
martvr on the plains ot Illinois wno scat
tered the seed that the republican press
harvested later on. In five years' time
Elij di Lovejoy, because he dared to print
and publish his convictions, had live
printing offices destroyed, one in St.
L , - . iu. . tii: : it
Louis and tour in vuou, mmui. v
dalism urged by the bourbon press of
tho dark age3 in this government, burned
and destroyed the office that dared to act
and advocate free speech; and with me
indomitable will of a martyr to principle,
Lovejoy persisted until he was murdered
while defending with friends the machin
ery that pudlished his truths. The great
state of Illinois acquitted the murderers
but it was the sowing of the wind. Ihe
minciule thev could not throttle and in
the whirlwind of events that preceeded
the. stru'rle at arms, Illinois marched
crrandlv under the republican banner,
Tho. blood of the martyred ioveioy be
came the seed of the new dispensation,
nnrl from that dav. that state lias been a
follower of the republican press.
A wain the rioters against free speech
nnd the abolition of the slave relic of
barbarism in the Kansas struggle sacked
and mobbed the territorial Registtr in
Lc.enworth that dared demand for that
territory free soil and freedom from slav-
erv. lllis pioneer nautr m rcuuuuutu
journalism in Kansas was silenced, but
old John Brown on the prairie at ussa-
watimie reasserted the same principle
that was smothered in the destruction of
a free press, and his protest effectually
fired the nation. There is not a man to
day who loves his country and its free
dom but that loves old John Brown
whose bones moulder in the rugged moun
tains of the Adirondacks, while his sou
eoes marching on !
The republican press led its party in its
infancy; it nominated John t;. rreniont
The republican press called ior the
fearless explorer who had made the
Rocky mountains no more a dividing line
between the known and the unknown
and it was free speech, freedom and
Fremont in the magnificent campaign of
'5G. When the ciisis came that was to
decide whether the land should be sever
ed and exist half slave and half free, the
republican press was the voice for union
It was in wonderful contrast with the
democratic press of that day that shoutet
treason in the south and in the north
cowered like a coward and pleaded for
dishonor and harlotted with harpies o
disunion. Time aud eternity cannot dim
the honor of the republican press in those
days, or blot from the book of remem
brance the record builded by the organs
of democracy. When Fort Sumpter fel
the New York Tribune said, "Fort Samp
