Am Opeii Letter to Irishmen.
Cresco, Iowa, July 21th. Editor
Begislcr: The two great parties have
placed in nomination candidates for
President and Vice President, and
constructed platforms outlining their
policies. Every citizen who may ex
pect an return for his vote, bo he
black or white, Teuton, Celt or native,
.will have to choso one of the plat
forms and one of the two sets of can
didates presented by tho Chicago con
ventions. The nomination of Cleve
land evokes no enthusiasm among the
large body of Irish votcrH throughout
the Empire State. On the contrary,
dissatisfaction and discontent seem to
prevail. Nor is the prospect of ad
hesion to the old love made brighter
-by the general .tenor of the press to
which nearly all lriBhmen look as a
guide in a time of political disquie
tude. And it is fair to presume that
an element so faithful in the past,
would not be deserting the ship had
they been fairly treated, had the seeds
of fidelity not been sown on a bed of
6and. I trust the motives which
prompt this letter will not be miscon
strued by my countrymen or others.
I have no ax to grind and no desiro to
advise my fellow countrymen con
trary to a manly and consistent exer
cise of the right of franchise with
which we are favored in this free
land. I am no convert to Republican
principles. I never voted the Demo-,
cratic ticket and the prospect is I
The Irishman has just escaped from
a species of slavery at home, compar
ed with which Southern slavery was
a virtue, for It did not refuse to feed
him while taking his labor, it did not
send him to the poor house when
useful no longer, it did not refuse to
protect him with clothing and cover
ing from the chilly blasts of winter.
It did not fail in case of illuoss or
physical disability to supply the need
ed relief. Contrasted with Irish sla
very landlordism it was radiant
with smiles, a thing of joy; a very
sunlight of freedom. Yet the victims
of rack rents has been accustomed in
oast, after landing at Castle Garden
and embracing his friends to next
hurrah as if by instinct for the Demo
I must admit I alwayB failed to see
consistency in this action and I never
met an Irish Democrat who could ex
plain it away. Eycn a good thing
may be ovordone and conceded that
Irishmen's fidelity to Democracy was
such, it is now plain, that either their
party fealty obscured their judgment,
or the party is very nngratcful, when
the most objectionable one, he who
has insulted and ignored them on
every occasion and seemed to regret
there were not more occasions, is
placed at the head of tho Democratic
ticket, notwithstanding their most
vigorous protests and earnest appeals
to be saved the humiliation of helping
their most pronounced foe.
The obscure "Bison" of thirty
months ago, looks down with con
tempt on those who assisted iu piling
up Democratic majorities, in New
York state, when he was acting legal
life extinguisher for Erie county, aud
relegates them to the rear where they
may ponder over the immutability of
human affairs, while "reform" repre
sented in him and endorsed by Curtis,
Jones, and other Anglo-American
dudes steps to the front to reap where
others have sown. No nominee of
the Democratic -Convention! but
Cleveland the least of any could pos
sibly have arrayed the chivalrous
Irishmen of America in solid phalanx
against the watchful friend of Ameri
can labor, the representative of Amer
ican industrial protection, the de
fender of American citizenship iu
Dublin, as well as on the Continent,
the able statesman, the eloquent ora
tor, the true patriot, the man with a
policy on all questions and the cour
age to tell us what it is ; the greatest
combination of brains, culture, con
viction and dignity this laud has to
offer, James G. Blaine, the Plumed
Knight of Maine. It is the aim of
intelligent Irishmen iu America to
render to their native land what aid
they can consistent with loyalty and
good citizenship in this, to create a
public sentiment in thi3 and other
English speaking countries that will
compel Great Britain to ?case choking
Ireland. There is nothing wrong or
unprincipled in this. There is no
more reason whv an Irishman mav
not love bis native landand be true to
bis adopted home, than in loving the
mother that gave him birth, and being
true to tho wife of hiB selecting. And
the man who does not love and assist
his mother in ueod, is usually a very
So the reasoning is logical at least
that foreigners who are willing to
help in an honorable way the land
they left, may be relied on to make
good citizens here. How they can do
so in some small way is the thought
uppermost in the minds of nine-tenths
of the Irishmen of America to-day.
AH they ask is that the justice of their
case be fairly considered and encour
agement given their honorable pur
poses which shall reflect tho liberty
loving sentiment of our country.
They should aud will resent every
attempt to foist upon them a tribunal
before which their case would be pre
judged and prejudiced. I expect to
sec here and there an Irishman who
holds office under Democracy aud
others who with Barkus are willin',
and, like the man who is satisfied to
sacrifico all his relations, Including
thoso of his wife, only spare him ; they
will doubtless be seeu urging and en
treating their countrymen to stand by
Grover Cleveland, who draws hi in
spiration out of the Curtis reservoir,
and goes to sleep with a copy of tho
New York Times under his pillow.
Lest somo of my countrymen who
are not acquainted with this brace of
"worthies," I understand Jones is an
Englishman aud editor of the New
York Times, the same who cabled
from bis county seat in England, when
advised of Cleveland's nomination,
"thank God! I sbatl instruct the
Times to give him a hearty support."
This was the very emphatic dissatis
faction of London journals over
Blaine's nomination and the delight
with which they hail that of Cleve
land, is quite significant. If the loyal
citizens, those who hold the freedom,
prosperity, and perpetuity of our
country of more importance than
mere party attachment, will but torn
back over a few of history's pages,
iney may learn how to properly ap
jmcuiuic .cugiauu d solicitude in our

Presidential affairs George W. Cur
tis, while not engaged abusing Irish
men or intriguing in behalf of British
interests holds down chair No. 1 in
the editorial department of Harper's
Weekly, a journal ut once insolent and
dictatorial, with a record of enthusi
astic hatred for everything Irish. In
its last issue it sums up its admiration
of its Presidential protege in these
words, "wo love him moat for the
enemies he has made," while in the
background it pictures a group of
hungry looking Irishmen, with faceB
more like animals of the forest, than
human beings. Aud, yet, this is the
great journal of-civilization in Amer
ica. Alas for civilization. As a
companion picture to that of last
week, I would suggest a group of the

the present Harpers, who, it is said,
carried an English gun and used it on
the bloody rebels.
Be that as it may it needs no prophet
to foresee the humiliating spectacle
that Irishmen would cut during tho
regime of Grover Cleveland, while
taping such fountains for his advice
supply. Bosses of his party and other
intellectual dudeB, with disgruntled
Republicans assistant Englishmen
like the Harpers' Puck crowd, Curtis
& Jones would guard all approaches
to tho Presidential person and every
question of National policy or con
cern must be filtered through them.
What a parody on the statesmanship
and worth that onco ruled the Demo
cratic councils such a cpectacle would
present. If it were possible that the
spirit of Andrew Jackson could visit
earth once more and sec how things
had changed, examine carefully the
workings of the machine and make
the acquaintance of Dan Manning,
methinks that his honest old bones
would turn in their coffin as a proof
of their disgust for things earthly.
Tho Irishmen of spirit and pride
will refuse to aid in bringing about
such a condition of things by placing
in power so unscrupulous and bigoted
an clement, that refuse to listen to the
arguments made by the most eloquent
of Irish orators in Chicago, simply
replying as did one of tho Cleveland
delegates within the hearing of many :
"Oh! d n the Irish," let them go.
Thi3 is a fair sample of the intoler
ance and ingratitudo that ruled the
proceedings of that convention and to
Irishmen without whose votes not a
single Northern State can be carried
for the Democracy. Such remarks
must be very consoling. There will
be a desperate effort made by time
servers and place hunters among
Irishmcu and misrepresentations of
factious newspapers to stem the tide
of Irish rebellion now setting in. If
the masses of Irish voters will but
read the Irish papers of New York
City and State and they ought to
know him best there is little danger
that hired orators and selfish Irish
leaders can induce them to submit to
further intolerable dictation, insult
and outrage by voting into power
their worst enemies, tho men who
d u them in their National Conven
tion. To my countrymen who arc
taking the step so long and too long
deferred and propose enrolling them
selves under tho banners of progress
ive and liberal Republicanism made
much more so by the good bye of the
Harpers, Curtis and Jones, I extend a
welcome hand, believing that purged
and freed of its bigoted elements, it
will show its appreciation for friendly
services, without discrimination and

authority to call an Auti-Monopoly
Congressional Convention for the 3d
Congressional District of Nebraska,
I hereby invite the Anti-Monopolists
of the different counties of said Dis

Grant and Garfield, men who, in all
the grandeur of their character, were
the natural product of our free in

forget that this party, as an organized
political force, sympathised with the
slave holders' rebellion to the extent
of declaring the war for the Union a
failure and wishing it to be so? And
now they ask to be reinstated. And
what sort of men do they offer as
statesmen to guard the interests of

the record of their lives, and can

country is lost if the democrats don't
be sent down there next March to
look over the books, aud a9 a poor
ignoraut farmer would prefer
listening to talking he of course lots
the spoutcr have his say as to who
should rule, but just as soon as Mr.
Consequence is gone the old stand-by
tells his horses to get up aud he
trudges along behind his plow, he
gets to thinking about this Washing
ton robbery that his seemingly re
deemer was preaching to him about;
be studies aud asks himself what
manner of man can this be, or docs he
think I have lost my reason have I
not a fine farm here, handed over to
me and my heirs forever by this eame
party he is slandering; hero I enjoy
the fruits of my own labor and am
contented a king can enjoy no more.
Like the boy he seemed to hollo,
"wolf, wolf, steal steal." Well, let us
see. This "robbing" outfit is paying
off our national debt with all possible
speed, aud my neighbor 6aid to me a
day or two ago that theso "robbers"
of whom we hear so much ha.vo one
hundred and fifty millions of hard
caBh in the treasury saved up for the
purpose of some charitable work and
for appropriations that may be needed
from time to time, as tho guardians
n .y see fit to use it. When I find all
this vast amount saved, and the debt
of the country so rapidly being paid
oil" I am of tho belief that we have a
more honest outfit at Washington
than we have in Platte county all
things considered, yet these grab-alls
will tell us, "Go, for Cleveland." No,
Mr. Consequence, we have been
stepping stones for you long enough,
until some of you have reached the
summit of the hill of fame, and, like
the goat in tho fable, we are left at
tho bottom to shift for ourselves
but I would say to auy friends, as the
Beech said to the Oak, "Brother we
must take it for our paina." Mr.
Consequence, you can travel. I was
surprised to sco what a stink Uncle
Johnny's poetry kicked up in Ken
tucky last week, though every word
was gospel truth. More auon.
