HARRISON AND THE IRISH.
The Condon Roorback.
The Plattsniouth Journal, in last
night's issue publishes two columns ol
trash in regard to the statement made by
some man named -Condon." that he
beard General Harrison abuse the IrUl.
people iu a speech madest Bloomington.
111., in 1875. This man Condon no on
know?, and it is probably another at
tempt of the democratic party to add
another Morey letter to the long list ot
crimes chargeable to their doors. We
publish below a number of affidavits ol
reputable citizons of Illinois, who heard
the speech and conclude that it is a com
plcte refutation of the base slander
There arc thirty-four of tlu-se affidavit
but we have only room for the few w
publish: Bloom ixotox, 111.. Spt. 31. Speiiul
Telegram. William Condon, an Irish
resident of Bloomington, 111., recenth
made the statement that General Harri
son, in,a speech delivered in Blooming
ton. III., Nov. 2, 1870, made certiin re
marks derogatory to the Irish people a
citizens of tho United States. He de
clares that Harrison had stid on tiiat oc
casion that the Irish "wen? only good to
shovel dirt, grade railroads, and fill the
penitentiaries." This statement has since
been reiterated by Condon in the form oi
an allidavit printed on Sunday, Sept. 23.
by the Bloomington Bulletin. In this he
swears that the language used was, "It
it were not for them (tho Irish), we
would not need half our penitentiaries, ;
which arc almost full of them; they ar
only good to shovel dirt and grade rail
roads, for which tlu-y receive more than
they are worth, as they are no acquisition
to the American people." Four others
confirmed by their affidavits Condon's
In contradiction of the charge made
by Condon the I'untct'jrapJi tomorrow
morning will publish the affidavits cf
thirty-four wtll known and reputable
citizens contradicting Condon in ever
detail and particular. Among the a la
davits arc the following:

States, he ( Harrison) being interrupted
by a question from "an old gentleman
with an Irish accent," replied, "It is easy
to know that man's race; you all know
what they are, and if it were not for
them we would not need half our peni
tentiaries, which are almost full of them;
they are only fit to shovel dirt and grade
railroads, for which they receive more
limn they are worth, as they are no acqui

"GATH'S" CHAT ABOUT SOME OF OUR
The Waffonmalcer of an Ohacare Village.
American Mechanics In Country Town.
The I'eddle r, Chicken Merchant, Etc.
Why reople Went West.
I was about to say that I take n interest
in the small manufacturers of tho land, and
I ran upon ono of these only yesterday at an
obscure village which is about fourteen miles
from any railroad, and at that distance has
three different railroads tantaliztngly do
scribing a kind of diamond around it, but not
one drawing any nearer. The consequence
has been that tho artisans of that little vil
lage have adhered to the crafts of their fore
fathers. My wife wanted a wagon and had
been to thin village to see the wagouxnaker'a
assortment, and I drove eleven miles to look
into her selection. There was a plain man
who had lived through all the civil war a
firm Unionist, had manufactured from his
youth up the different kinds of riding
wagons, and was still making them between
tho intervals of his job work. Living re
mote from a railroad, in a country of
abundant food and wood and leather, he
could afford to make a wagon for 20 per
cent, less than city work. His little warehouse
contained ten or twelve new wagons, and
one of these which had been transformed had
l-en driven nineteen -ears by its purchaser,
who then sold it back again and got a new
one. Here, for $80, you could get a hand
made wagon quito as cheap as the cheapest
jwtteru made wagons iu tho western states.
For 80 you could buy what is called a Day
ton wagon with two seats; for f 10 you could
buy a tongue made to order, and according
to tho dimensions you mirht leave, the
tonguj being net with all its paraphernalia,
with front and rear. For f 4 you could have
a brako put on any wagon. Of course the
springs of tlieso wagott3 are made at different
places, such us Wilmington, DcJL; the wheels
are generally made m thn adjacent country.
and sometimes come from the west. All the
rest of the machinery, except the iron fix
tures, like the steps, is made on the spot.
We are constantly saying that there are no
American mechanics, but wo are only talk
ing about the towns, lathe country towns
of tho United States there are just as many
blacksmiths, wheelwrights, etc., ns there
ever were. These men, working alone and
making all parts of a finished product, not
div iding their labor into a series of single
drudgeries, become intelligent and ob

through the district I have described, the

About twice a week, also, you will see tb&
egg 4t.ua ourter man come along m a wagon
manufactured for his service. It contains a
refrigerator ui-t for tho butter and a saw
dust body for tho eggs. He buys chiefly
from the poor, aud those who waut ready
money, wno would otherwise put in their
butter and eggs at tbo country store in the
way of bartering, and thus suffer two shaves;
first the shavo off their product, and, sec
ondly, tho shave upoa the product they ex-
cuango I or. i lie egg and butter man pays
religiously but 8 cents a pound for butter to
the country people who keep a cow or two.
Ho pays C cents a dozen for eggs at nearly
nil times of the year. He saves the wayside
a walk of two or three miles to the next vil
lage store. At the present time eggs are 18
cents a dozen at the stores, and therefore
every time the egg man surrounds a doeen
eggs he has made 10 cents.
x ou niiguc not suppose that there were
country potters any more ia this region, but
you would be mistaken there. They have an
oia po.ipry at riagerstown, wnicn is more
than 100 years old, and I know of one iu an
obscure part of tho country which has sup
ported two or three generations of the same
family in respectable independence. That is
to say, they may make $500 a year in cash
upon their pots, jars, etc. The man gets his
clay irom some distance, and has a little kiln
which you would liardly think to be more
than a Dutch oven, end he has a small shop
wbei-i be sits at bis wheel and makes his pots
and jars. Sometimes he delivers them at the
railroad station, and at other times the farm
ers come with their own teams and place the
pots in the straw and take them home to their
wives, who nil the said pots with pickets, pre
serves, catsup, apple butter, etc. Really our
largest manufacturers have come from these
little beginnings. The majestic works of
this country, which employ 1,000 bands, fre
quently began with a rural blacksmith.
Isot long ago I drove to the only county
seat or court house town in Pennsylvania
wuere it is said the whole county is destitute
of railroad facilities. I had to cross a mount
ain to get into this county, and there lay the
court bouse clustered in a beautiful but Bar
row valley, with abundant streams. The
whole county was walled in by nature, like
some parts of the Alps. For fifty years the
people had conceived that railroads would
have to come to them some day, because
they were on one of the great lines of com
munieation between the east and west. At
last some of the Pittsburg people united with
the Vanderbilt family to run a railroad
through that region, and spent a great deal
of money in beginning the tunnels and build
ing the steel towers to cross the chasms. But
the exigencies of many railroads united to
withdraw all this enterprise just as the con
summation seemed within reach. The peo
ple there have settled down to the conviction
that now they will never have any railroad
The result is seen in the moving of every
yoing man to Kansas, Dakota and the far
west. The young men stayed around as long
as there was a chance to work on the railroad
and enjoy the fruits of its construction.
When they found th matter was knocked ia
the head, so to speak, they packed their
bundles and set off for the excursion Uuln
which, once a week or twice a month the
year through, rqns from these old settled
carts to Kansas and Nebraska. Too would
sea in those trains the Duokers, the United
Brethren, the Lutherans ana the jierormea
.Brethren taking their lunches irequenuy
with them, going to Kansas under the charge
of a guide which tbo railroad company em
ploys, and they perhaps go out and return for
36 or even less. They look at tha new land,
figure up on their old farms, and then
dispatch a sojy-ia-law or a son to tha sew re
gion to pot in bis crop upon those plains and
prairies, where no trees are to be cut down
nor any stones are to be gathered from the
