The IrlshMaa la Politic From
a Irish Staadpoiat.
Dennis Daly In O'Neill Frontier.
It seems that the Irishmen coming
from the East are very bitter iu their
denunciation of Cleveland and the
Democratic party. An amusing dis
cussion occurred in my office last
week between an ex-Confederate
Colonel and Mr. Phelim O'Beirne, an
Irish-American from Louisiana.
Mr. O'Beirno was filing on a homo
stead, and when ho completed his
entry be remarked that tho people
should feel very thankful for the wis
dom and justice of the Republican
party in passing the homestead law,
and that he was going to vote the
Republican ticket. "Well, well,"
says 'the Colonel, "I can't understand
how a man by the name of O'Brien
can be a Republican, for au Irishman
must be a Democrat or a traitor."
"Upon my word, Colonel, and it ill
becomes a Democrat to fling 6uch
epithets as traitor In the face of any
person, for was it not the Democratic
party, with the sympathy and encour
agement of England, that made a
traitorous assault upon the grandest
emblem of liberty that ever waved
over a free people?" And if the
Democratic party did not prove trai
tors and recreants to the principles
which first called the grand old Dem
ocratic party of Thomas Jefferson and
Andrew Jackson into existence, I
would not to-day be making a declar
ation of intention to vote for that
magnificent American, James G.
Blaine. I have lived in Louisiana for
the last few years and during that
time I have met more would-be aris
tocrats and know-nothings in the
Democratic party than I erer knew
in the Republican party during a
residence of seventeen years in Con
necticut. It was prejudice that kept
the Irish-Americans from joining
the Republican party heretofore, but
henceforth you will find that we will
remain true to the Republican party
eo long as that party proves true to
"This year is the first time 6inco
Lincoln was elected that the patriot
ism of Americans has been rightly
appealed to, and from present indica
tions the people will answer on the
4th of November in no uncertain
manner; when the votes are counted
two-thirds of those cast will be for
sustaining American industries, Am
erican patriotism and American citi
zenship. A careful observer can per
ceive that thero is a very dangerous
tory element in Hub country, which
element bulldozed both the Republi
can and Democratic parties for the
last twenty-four years, but this year
tho American patriots of the Repub
lican parly saw the dangers which
surrounded our institutions and in
dustries, aud with one accord these
statesmen aud patriots raised iu their
might and squashed the tory and dude
element of their party. Did the
Democratic party do likewise? No ;
but they doffed their hats, extended
both hands, embraced and clapped
these tories to their bosom and then
looked around and saw tho mingled
surprise and disgust depicted on the
upturned faces of their most faithful
and too confiding Irish followers, and
then what? Well, Mr. Bragg, the
representative and spokesman of the
Democratic party, shouted out in a
voice of thuuder and said : 'If the
damned Irish don't like our company
they may go to hell.'
"The Irish-Americans had already
demonstrated, previous to Bragg's in
sult, that they intended to vote for
James G. Blaine, the citizen who rais
ed himself above his party' policy
and proclaimed that if he was elected
President, America would be run iu
the interest of Americans; that our
diversified industries would be pro
tected ; that our commerce would be
expanded ; that our Government
would control the destinies of this
continent; that Americau citizens
shall be protected iu whatever part of
the world they might proceed on a
lawful errand ; that in the future, as
well as in the past, America shall be
the asylum for the oppressed of all
nationalities who may cast anchor in
the harbor of Republican America.
"The Democratic party has no
moral courage, as demonstrated when
ever questions of public policy arise,
the Democrats, as a party, evade any
discussion which would have a ten
dency to dimiuish their votes at the
polls. But the Republican party
grapprcs all questions of public poli
cy and morality with the earnestness
and determination of statesmen aud
soldier-, and accordingly disposes ot
them with credit.
Thomas A. Hendricks was one of
six Senators who voted against the
thirteenth amendment to the Consti
stitutiou (abolishing slavery).
lie was one of eleven Senators who
voted against the fourteenth amend
ment to the Constitution (conferring
citizenship upon the negroes and pro
hibiting the payment of Rebel debts).
He was one of thirteen Senators
who voted against the fifteenth
amendment (establishing negro Buff
rage). He was one of twelve who voted
against the Civil-Rights bill.
He was one of fifteen who voted
against passing the same over Presi
dent Johnson's veto.
He was one of seven who voted
against the Reconstruction act of the
Thirty-seventh Congres?, and one of
ten who voted against passing it over
He was one of thirteen who voted
against the first bill for tho admission
of Colorado, and one of twelve who
voted against the second Colorado
bill both being vetoed by President
Ho was one of fourteen who voted
against tho admission of Nebraska,
and one of nino who voted against
passiug the bill over tho veto iu 1SG7.
These are a fow reasons why the
people of the West, and especially of
Colorado aud Nebraska, will not help
to make Hendricks presiding officer of
the body he did so little to adorn
when ho was a member of it.
How Broacae BUI Met Hln
"Broncho Bill," one of the particu
larly bright stars in the "Wild West
Combination," related the following
incident to a Dispatch reporter while
here last week : "When I struck
Philadelphia," said he, "I wanted to
see my mother. I knowed she was
livin' tbar, but I'd not seen her for
moro than twenty year, and I'll be
hauged if I knowed how to find out
where sbo lived. I ran off from home
when nine year old, and I knowed
she wasn't livin' iu the old house.
Some one told me to get a register,
and that's the way I found the place.
When I rapped on the door an old
lady with a broom in her hand came
out. She looked kinder scared to see
a cowboy, and was goin'to slam the
door in my face. Sez I is this Mrs.
Clark? (You know ray name is
Wallie Clark, but they always call
me Broncho Bill.) Sez she, yes,
lookin' kinder hard at me though, as
if she'd a notion t fire me off. Well,
sez I, I saw your son at Prairie City,
Indian agency. Look here, my boy,
sez the old woman, if you ain't my
son I never had one. Well, you
know it was pretty hard to deny your
mother you hadn't seen for twenty
year. So I sez, well, I guess your
right old lady. Well, she put her
arms round my neck and begun to
cry. That was too much for me, and
1 begun cryin' too. I'd rather tackle
a dozen Indians than stayed tbar with
that old woman. My brothers and
sisters cum in and we all had the
durndcBt cryin' time I bet you ever
see. Why, it broke mo all up so I
wasn't over it for more'n a week. I
don't s'pose I'll ever see tho old lady
agin, but our last meetiu' will nover
bo forgot by me, you can bet on that."
Ilurdettc oa Hie Moaroe Doc
Why, yes, my son, tho Monroe doc
trine is a good thing to keep on the
chimuey-piece. It is a very simple
doctriuc. It merely declares that we
located this claim ourselves, and the
mau who tries to jump it, or any of
its lead, angles, spurs, dips or out
uroppings, will be in danger of dyiug
poor and comparatively fricudless.
It declares that no foreign nation can
come over here and slide on our cellar
door; that England and Germany
cannot swiug on our front gate to do
their courting; that they cannot
bring over their own syrup troughs
and elder spouts and make sugar in
our maple grove; that Austria and
France can't spot no bee tree in our
Mexican timber land ; that they can't
ditch our Isthmus unless we locate
the ditch and put iu the -drift gates;
that Russia can't trap mink in our
creek bottoms; that no foreign na
tion can ppank its children with our
butter paddle. It means that the
mau who joins farms with us cau't
move the division fence until he talks
to us about it; that he can't crowd
our utighbors; that he can't sub-let
u patch of his farm to anybody until
we are satisfied that the new tenant
will make a good neighbor for us.
That's about the size of it, and it's a
very good doctrine for a well dis
posed, peaceable family, If it's lived
The administration of Hayes has
been lauded, and the idea that there
was not much stealing under it has
been insisted upon; but it was liter
ally honeycombed with rottenness, as
was Grant's eight years. The people
were robbed of millions of dollars,
aud to this hour uot oue man was
convicted or punished among the nu
merous thieves. Wilmington (iV. C.)
This is false iu every sentence.
There is not a figure to justity such
an assertion. In answer to the charge
it may be said that the. books of the
Treasury Department show that the
losses to the government under the
rule of Vau Iiiiren were $1175 ou ev
ery '$1,000 collected aud disbursed ;
uuderTjIerit was $040 ou the $1,000;
under Polk it was $i.08; under Tay
lor and Fillmore, $4.19; under Pierce
it was $3.56; uuder Buchanan it was
$3 81; uuder Lincoln it was just 76
cents on the $1,000; under Johusou it
was 57 cents; under Grant, eight
years 24 cents on the $1,000, and un
der Hayes just eight-tenths of one
mill on the $1,000. These are the ab
solute facts, which the books of the
Treasurer's office aud its vouchers
show. The losses to the government
in all the administrations up to June
30, 1861, amounted on an average to
$5.17 ou tho $1,000. From July 1,
1861, to June 30, 1879, they amounted
on an average to just 46 cents ou the
$1,000. In ter Ocean.
teat. Mr. Hendricks in his speeches ou
national finauces is trying to convoy
to his audiences the false idea that 450
millions, contained In the TJ. S. Treas
ury, are improperly withheld from
business channels for bad purposes.
In consequenco of many inquiries as
to the correctness of these statements,
Treasurer Wyman has sent out the
following official explanation of what
constitutes the 450 millions now held :
Wasuingtox, Oct. 4.
On September 30, 1884, the cash iu
tho treasury, exclusive of minor coin
(1, 2, 3, and 5-cent pieces,) but includ
ing fractional silver coin (amounting
to $29,474,160.89,) was $451,182,508.12.
Of this amount there was held.
1. For the redemption of bonds
and payment of interest past due, but
not yet presented, $20.G43,683.06.
2. For the redemption of gold cer
tificates in circulation, $87,389,660.
3. For the redemption of silver
certificates in circulation, $96,491,251.
4. For tho redemption of certifi
cates issued on deposits of United
States notes (act or Juno 8, 1872.)
5. For disbursing offices, such as
pension agents, paymasters, etc., sub
ject to their checks, $23,640,921.92.
6. For drafts and chocks of the
treasurer, not yet presented for pay
7. The 5 per cent fund for the re
demption of national bank notes,
which fund is made up by and be
longs to the banks, $1,575,074.63.
8. For the redemption of notes of
national banks that have failed, gone
into liquidation, or are reducing cir
9. Balance of postofflce department
account, $3,562,048.85, making a total
of money held for special purposes,
$307,938.466 85, which is therefore,
not applicable for purposes other than
as specified, aud leaving an available
cash balance of $194,234,041.27.
A call of bonds to mature Nov. 1,
1884, requiriug for their payment $10,
000,000, will reduce tho available cash

The great facts, which Republicans
will not fail to press upon the atten
tion of voters, may be thus briefly
I. The Democratic party, boast
fully proclaiming that "tariff reform''
was its great object, elected a ma
jority of the House in 1882.
II. This House, assembling in
December, 1883, elected Mr. Carlisle
Speaker on the ground that he was a
Freo Trader, aud in organizing the
House would insure the promised
III. Mr. Carlisle did organize the
House with Mr. Morrison and other
noted Free Traders in charge of the
IV. These men did bring in a bill,
known as "the Morrison bill," which
they declared was a "first firm step
toward free trade," and which in fact
was such a step.
V. The Democratic caucus voted,
about four to oue, to take up the bill
as a party measure, aud declared this
sorl of "reform" the most vital object
of the party.
VI. Tho Democratic House deem
ed it of such vast importance that it
sacrificed all other public business in
order to force this measure through.
VII. Four-fifths of the Democrat
ic members of the House, in two
formal votes, supported this measure,
and it was barely defeated, nearly all
the Democratic journals denouncing
as "traitors to the party" the few
Democrats who voted against it.
VIII. Free Trade Republicans,
prior to and during the session, en?
couraged these proceedings, and
promised publicly a great free trade
bolt if the Democrats would stick to
the plan proposed.
IX. The tree trade bolt has come,
though it docs not prove to be
X. The bill, if passed, would have
closed thousands of establishments
and reduced wages generally.
XI. The Democratic party is now
trying to cheat the people by pre
tending that it does not mean any
mischief on the tariff. Its caudidate
is trying, by dishonest silence, to
obtaiu votes upon false pretences.
Protection aad Irfah-Aater
The magnificent results of a quar

policy in America have produced
their full impression ou the minds of
Irishmeu both here and in Ireland.
They see that the policy cripples
England without fighting her, pricks
the inflated egotism of her economic
self-sufficiency, aud while improving

America, promotes a rapidity of pro- I

Who is Tom Hendricks?

of makiug Kansas a slave state and

We notice by the Columbus Jour
nal that uo action had been taken,
"no arrests made or attempted, no
warrant for arrest has been issued,"
for the perpetrators of the terrible
outrage, which resulted in tho death
of Miss Quackeubush, a description
ot which we gave a short time ago.
Can it be possible, that we are living
in a so-culled civilized and en
lightened community, where au out
rage of the enormity ot the above
character can be perpetrated upou a
feeble-minded girl, costiug her her
life, the perpetrators known to the
community, aud they sit idly by aud
allow the law to wink at the crime?
If there is a case in the annals of
crime, or cau be deliueated in the
mind ot man, where the culprits are
not even entitled to the slow process
of justice, thi is one. It the people
of Columbus will fold their arms and
allow such a crime to go unpunished,
the city ought to sink, and be (dotted
out of existence, or any other city
that would tolerate such a horrible
deed. We shall wait and hope for a
better report, ere long, from our
sister city. Grand Island Times.
CiTiZENSim ot the republic must

accept a lesser duty, it cin never as
sume a nobler oue, than the protection
of the humblest man who owes it loy

into whatever land he may go npon a
lawful errand. James G. Blaine.
