Tho Qriovaucoa of Irolond,
Written for the Nebraska Advertlter.
For good or ovil, tlio Irisli question
is uvklunlly desllnud to occupy for
Homo timo to coiuo u promiiitMit placo
in tho public altuution. All iudica
tlojis point to tho probability of tho
prubuiit generation scciiiK tlio close, in
sonn) form or otlior, of the long strtijj'
Hie between Englnnd and Ireland,
whicli has been fought- with such
varying success for so many centuries.
At length tlio poor, down-trodden peo
plo of Erin liavo arrived at tlio convic
tion thai they will soon win hack their
rights ulid privileges as a nation and he
lived lroin the burueiiaomu yoke ol
English tyranny. Thulrisb people have
long .since looked1 forward to the day
when their beloved laud would he
matched from beneath tho iron grasp
of cruel, uineleutiiig landlords and
placed, where it should long ago have
been placed, among tho free nations, of
Uiidur.siich eit'uumstiinces as these
.tiie Irish problem will be forced upon
the notice of all men; and it becomes
a matter of necessity to know some of
tlio quvMioiis which, constitute the
juudatnental part of so important a
problem.' We Americans can least of
all men aoidudisitussion on tills sub
ject. A neat many of our fellow citi
zens are Irish by birth; still more ol
lliein tiroliish by descent; and, of late
days, tlio struggle of the Irish people
at hoine has Ik-oii carried on chielly by
means Of vast resources drawn from
the Irish people who settled on the
It is now more than ever opportune
that the public should he put in pos
session ol the real issues at stake in
I his great struggle, ami made awaro ol
. Tho following lines written by .Mr.
M. F. Sullivan, a writer of much note
and n man whoso most important in
terest, js the welhu'o of Irelano,
will sho,w the nature of tlio Jrisit que.s
;tifiti'.lftWmanher 'So;slu1plr, stniight
forward and practical that any intelli
gent man who reads them will have an
accurate idea of the great struggle ol
tlio day. Mr. Sullivan says: "Euglano
and Ireland are members of the British
Empire. Thf.v are supposed to enjoj
alike the benefits ot (lie Jsritish consti
tution; those heiielits are administered
to bo.th by tho same personal govern
ment. Rut England is the richest, ire
laud the poorest country in tho empire.
England's population has continually
ipcr.ea.sed; Ireland's has continual!
diminished. Englishmen prefer to live
in their native cointry; emigration
has been only a trivial incident in her
history; Irishmen prefer to live in
their nativo country, yet there uro four
limes a:; many of them in foreign
countries as in their own: witli thorn
emigration has hi en a chronic na
tional necessity. England hums with
uianilold Industries; Ireland's vast
wuti r p iwer, capable of turning the
mac'ii' . ry ol the world, is silent. En
l.md's wharves are forests of masts;
1 1 eland's beautiful harbors are empty
except when the English ships carry
away tlio products of her soil. In
England famine is unknown; though
she has to import food. In Ireland
famine is frcqmmt, although she ex
ports food enough to feed her entire
population. In- England tho propor
tion of voters to' I lie male population
is one in four; in Ireland it is one in
twenty-four. England, the richest, h
the must lightly taxed portion of the
empire; Ireland, thu poorest, is the
most heavily taxed. In England there
is liberty of conscience and education;
in Ireland n charter has been refused
to the only university in whicli four
lifths of her students can conscien
tiously seek degrees. England per
mits Scotchmen to shape imperial leg
islation for Scotland and appoints only
Scotchmen to ofllce in Scotland; the
representatives of Ireland in the im
perial parliament aro never consulted
about legislation for that country, and
the government olllces are filled with
Englishmen and .Scotchmen. England
governs Scotland by her sons and in
kindness; England governs Ireland by
her enemies and in hatred.
"In proportion to population Micro is
much more crime of all kinds commit
ted h Scotland and England than in
Ireland; yet the suspnnsiou of hubnis
vnrpiis is not attempted In thoso coun
tries. In eighty years fifty-nine savage
coercion bills, by which personal liber
ty has been extinguished, have been
inflicted on Ireland, England gives to
all her dependencies geographically
separated from her the right to make
their domestic laws on their own soil
home rule; England has destroyed the
parliament of Ireland and denies hor
I,Ioro we lmvo an elucidation of Ire
land's great cause, given in a uiunnor
at once worthy of Mr. Sullivan's talont
as a writer and deserving of the at
tentive consideration of overy tnio
Irishman, no matter in what part df
tho world ho may be found. Now Ib
the time for tho loyal sons of tho 'Em
erald Isle" It) make one general strike
for freedom and proclaim to every na
tion of the earth that they aro a free,
independent people, capable of making
their own laws on their own soil.
They have already made a beginning
which, according to all Indications, is
an auspicious one; lot them only per
sovoro and they will accomplish tho
end and gain what many a valiant IrlsMi
heart lias longed for tho liberty of
Ireland. "When Ireland," says tho
illustrious Robert Emmet, "shall lie
freed from tho bonds of English tlirai
dom, then, and only then, let my
epitaph bo writl en." ,
Yours most respectfully,

Calvkht, Nkii March v.), 1882. v
Xomalm county is away behind most
ail other counties in the State in tho
way of county fairs. It has been sev
eral years since an attempt was made
to hold one, and at the last, meeting of
tlio old board there was not a quorum
present, and so, if no now steps aro
taken, wo aro destined to go another
year without one. Many with wlionl
I have consulted tiro of tho opinion
that we should make an effort to hav5
one this year, at or near tho center.
It is a well known fact and acknowl
edged by all that an attempt will soon'
be mado to locale tho county Heat near
er the center of tho county, and this
fair project will be a good thing for ps
to start, as it will show the people that1
the combined towns of Sheridan and
Calvert are going to start ami keep
alive all things which tend to promote''
tho general interest of tlio county..
This Is a thing Mint wo can all unite on
and will, if a success, bring all. our
people in to seo the growth and pros-j
perity of the new towns. Suitubje .
grounds can bo easily obtained, and as"
tho old board lias failed to keep up the
fair, a now organization can, get. help
from the county funds, as soon as the
fair is held, at the into of three per
cent, for each Inhabitant. And now,,
as will be seen by the call for a meeting'
olsowhere, any person has a chance to,
takn hold and help unko it a successTr"
No ohanco for gamblers to stand back'
and yell clique and ring. The door is
open and it Is hoped that our solid'
farmers, for whoso interests a good'
fair is a great need, will respond to f'no'
call and attend tho meeting and take1
hold with a vim. 1). J. Wood.

force of tho fall was so great that the
