District * Where tbo League Was Firmly Kntabllihcd Dlntln- gulnbed For an Almost fin * tire Absence From Crime LlncolB. [ rnou THK HF.K'S LINCOLN nuiiEA.tr. | The interest wns universal in Lincoln yesterday when the BEE furnished the complete report of the proclaiming of the Irish National league by the English government. At this city are located the headquarters and offices of the Irish Na tional league and in this city is the homo of lion. Patrick Egan , who m both Ire land and America has boon in the front ranks In the league organizations and in tlio struggles of the Irish people that have csxiutcd public attention for years. What the proclaiming moans and how the Irish people on both smcs of the Atlantic regard it and its ultimate cfl'ect ro questions familiar to Mr. Eagan and upon whirh ho can express an intelli gent opinion. To present Mr. Egan's views in detail to the BKK , that gentleman - man was called upon yesterday and the question discussed at length. Mr. Egan said : "Tho proclamation is based on a lie. The lord Hciitcnant goes on to say , 'Whereas we are satisfied that there exists in Ireland an association known by the name of the Irish National league , and that the said association in parts of Ireland promotes and incites tenets nets of violence and intimidation and in * tcrfcres with tlio administration of the law , etc. ' As a matter of fact , the league. Instead of inciting to acts of violence and intimidation , has always boon the strongest guardian of peuco and order. Wherever the league was strong and active in a district or count ) , there waste to be found an almost complete absence of crime , but wherever the league was weak , there you would find house-burn ings and landlord-shooting. The fact is the government have no need of this coercion policy for the purpose of deal ing with crime , as that term is under stood iu America , because there is less of It iu Ireland than in any other country In the world. Its real purpose is to coerce and intimidate the down.trodden tenantry and to aid the landlords to collect their rack routs. Noth ing but the blindest infatuation and the most ingrained stupidity could have impelled the lories to enter on such a policy. This stop has done morn to advance thu home rule ' cause than all that the friends of the movement could achieve if left to their own resources during the ne\t live years. It has insured the early and complete tri- \impli of the policy of Mr. Gladstone. Its effect In Ireland will bo to heal up any dill'ereuccs that may exist in the na tional ranks and to unite the whole coun try as one man against the infamous at tempt against public liberty. In Eng land it will convert the wavering liber als to the standard of Gladstone , in America it will strengthen and conform the rapidly growing sympathy for Ire land amongst native Americans , while it will bo the means of unitingand moiling Irish in America to renewed and more vigorous exerlions in behalf of the old land. Proclaiming the league and sup pressing it are two different things , us the lories will very soon find out. The league in Ireland will bo compelled to . carry on Its organization on other lines , and ! know from long experience that there is a charm for our people in secret organization which will stimulate them to any amount of worker or saorilico that mav bo noecssarv to de feat I lie government. In 1881 the Glad stone government proclaimed the land league , and the experiment taught them such a lesson that Gladstone and nearly all the loaders of his party have become homo rulers. I do not anticipate the conversion of the torics , because , like UIP bourbons , they are incapable of learning anything , but I do anticipate that within three months of the opening of the next session of parliament they will bo com pletely and ignomimously routed by the champions of Irish homo rule. Already strong indications of the disruption of the 'unholy alliance' are cropping out in the secession of Chamberlain and Russell from the liberal unionists. Now that the government have com mitted the blunder of proclaiming the league ; they must , of course , take stops to enforce their proclamation , and to do that they will bo compelled to imprison consfdora.blo numbers of the people , in cluding , no doubt , many of tlio promi nent leaders. This will undoubtedly stir up thn passions of the people and as many of the moro active and desperate amongst the younger men of the move ment arc in no frame of mind to tolerate trilling these will , I very much fear , bo bloody work rivaling if not surpassing the deplorable scenes of other coercion times and the responsibility will bo placed by nil thinking men where it ' properly belongs , on tlio shoulders of ' the stupid and truculent lory government of England. " COUNTY POLITICS. Since the calling of the republican county convention tor the ! 3rd of Septem ber county politics have assumed active proportions and the different candidates re as active us beavers each in his own tndivlaual Interests. There are three or four candidates for e , ch oilico and the prospects for lively primaries is refresh ing. Among the latest candidates iu the Hold is Tom Carr , of the tirst ward , who is running for sheriff. It is not devel oped yet whether the Journal has com menced its former policy of turning ever subscriptions for work in the wards but the ancient machine will undoubtedly try to run things notwithstanding that K was democratic four months ago. PA VINO IN PUOOltKSS. " A largo number of curious citizens have enjoyed the past few days looking at the Workmen laying thn concrete foundation for pavements. Monday the work of inSi ing blocks will begin anu a force of Si men will utibh the work honcufourth , providing tlio stonu contractors act rea sonably decent in supplying the material for curbing. Tlio prospect of lifting the city above the fearful mud that it revels in , in rainy times , is a spectacle that every man in the city onioys and it will be K boom of immeasurable eood to hoof municipality.

B. Srlilen Was Murdered Yesterday Alfred Selden received a letter - tor from his father D. J. Seldon , who is at Lusk , Wyoming , attending to the dis position of the remains of O. B. Seldon , who was shot dead a mysteriously last Sunday night. In describing the murder Justice Selden bay it happened about 9 o'clock in the evening while the victim was seated at a table casting up accounts. Two shots were fired through tha window ; the first piercing his heart and kill ing him instantly. la falling he extinguished the lamp , so that the next shot which evidently was meant for Mrs. SelUon , missed its mark and struck the wall above her head. The cries of Mrs. Soldon startled the neigh bors nd they rushed to her assistance. The lamp was re-lighted , and the form of the prostrate man was lifted and placed on the sofa when to their horror they discovered ho was dead ! No trace of the murderer could be found. The course of the second bullet was traced J through two plaster partitions , to the ceiling of the summer , and thence to the floor where a plain indentation was made. The ball could nowhere be found , however , and it is thought that ono of the neighbors who was assisting in the church had quietly thrust it into his pocket. This has aroused strong suapic ions that this person , whoever lie is , is guilty of the murder. The town of Lusk is greatly excited over the matter , but no clew whatever can bo discovered as to the identity of the murderer. It is thought that the perpetrator of the deed meant first to kill Mr. and Mrs. Selden , and then make way with the money and other valuables in the house. It is also thought the deed might have boon prompted by proprietary troubles. At the post mortem examination the fatal minio ball was found lodged near the spine of the deceased. As the ball did not have sufficient force to go entirely through the body it is thought it must have been lircd from a ghotguu , or some other weapon in which the ball fitted loosely. The Inquest was hold Friday. Yesterday the body was taken to Man- villo and temporarily interred. Mr. D. J. Soldon will possibly return to Omaha the latter part of this week , 'lianlan's Visit Here.
