[ KROMrun nr.E's LINCOLN :
President Fitrgorald , of the Irish National
In America , has taken the initiatory
r raising funds for the prosecution of work
homo rule In Ireland , by Issuing the fol
ding appeals ;
To the Wealthy Irishmen nnd Sons of Irish-
, ] . " ! la America Fellow-Countrymen : To-
ay the Tale of Ireland hangs trembling In
" 10 balance. Ono brief year must deeido
.bother Ireland as a nation shall ccaso to
jtlst , or shall in glory of rejuvenated beauty ,
iut on the royal rpbes of restored imlcpen-
Ipnro. The decision rests not with the peo-
ije of Ireland , nor with their gallant leaders ;
1 hey have done all that splendid courage
ijnbined with prudence , Christian forbear-
ice and heroic fortitude could do , to amcll-
rate their condition. The odds are against
hem , and without assistance from abroad
hey must yield to the law of superior
Ot .e. Left now to their own resources ,
fur as human wisdom can foraco , nothing
( rould remain for the people of Ireland , but
accept the doom of slavery , to quit forever
o hind of their birth , or to drench the
, cred ttoll with their blood as a hist sucrltlco
o that principle of liberty , which coming
Mil Uod , is in itself divine nnd ItUo the God-
i > 3 , demands from the heart of man tho'
nor of its respect.
They shall not and they must not bo left
flnalded. If , of themselves , they are umiblo
jo force the concession of justice from the
Fmldftl aristocracy which sways the destinies
Of the British cmpiro and marks that sway
yj Ireland with every crlmo that can bo found
l the annals of Asiatio despotism ; never-
iclcss , by their coin-ago and
Btelllgenco the Irish people have
rought about such n condition of
itngs that , with our assistance , they will bo
bio to change the night of gloom into the
ayllght of assured victory. That assistance
hall not and must not bo denied them.
With us , the sons of Irish exiles or exiles
lursolvos , rests the Oat of death or llfo to
roland , We , ns well as the people of Iro-
and , are co-hulrs of these who died for Irish
liberty , souio In the front of battle , some in
"no darkness of the dungeon , some beneath
10 arm of the English gibbet. The waves
the ocean have not changed the blood that
urscs in our veins. The atmosphere of
mcrlua does not debase , but elevates the
iplrations of the human mind , and wo
juld bo unworthy the freedom wo enjoy
this landof blood-bought independence , un-
jrtliy the companionship of American free-
on , if wo , under the auspices of our happier
rcumstancos should in this fateful hour
.esett our brothers In the old land , and leave
icm alone to cngngo unaided in what would
icn bo a hopeless struggle .against the op
pression that desolates our motherland to-
Our fathers took down their weapons ,
parted from wives 'and children , nnd wont
out to crimson the mountain heather with
their blood. The men of Ireland are willing
to makn that sacrltlco to-day , but if properly
eocouded in their efforts by us , a bloodless
Victory will crown n bloodless revolution , a
revolution unlinio in the history of nations ,
) y which the intellect and moral strength ol
iicu , shall bo triumphant over the
> ruto force of 'unrighteous usurpation ,
Clio people of Ireland will have victory with'
a their grasp if they can bo supplied with the
IDO thing which they need. That which thoj
vant , wo possess ; and wo can without Incon.
VPnlvnce give what will satisfy their neces
sities. Tney want money to carry ou tbcii

England hnvo declared themselves in favor of
Ireland's ' right to self-government. The
ablest British statesman of modern
times , William Ewart Gladstone , In the
winter of his houry experience nnd
long career , has proclaimed himself
the champion of Irish liberty. Chivalrous
William O'Brien may bo condemned to bread
and water and the insufferable hardships of
a felon's cell , but for the llrst time in the his
tory of the Irish struggle noblo-hcartod En
glishmen and Scotchmen nro competing for
the honor of imitating his example and suffer
ing for Irish freedom at the hands of those
who Imvo inaugurated the reign of terror that
illustrates British rule in Ireland to-day.
Will Irishmen in America bo less generous ?
Money is needed and the need is very urgent
for the succur of evicted tenants ; for the defense -
fenso of Irish loaders and English friends of
our causa against a tyrannous and unscrupul
ous government , and of humbler champions of
liberty against ruftlnns In authority ; und par
ticularly for the protection of the registration
lists , ono of the most important
yet costly necessities of the struggle
Money Is required above nil to put the Irish
party in a strong position for the general
election which may take place at an early
date , und which. If Mr. Puniell Is properly
sustained by the Irish In America , will end
in the triumph of Mr. Gladstone and the
achievement of homo rule for Ireland.
Wealthy Irishmen of America will you
help us !
Ireland appeals to you in the name of the
sacred de.ul mouldering In her soil to-day ; in
the name of the fathers nnd mothers who
with anguished hearts nnd tearful eyes
carried you across the ocean to this homo of
peace and plenty , wlioro no despot can
oppress you , and no feudal tyrant rob from
yon the fruits of your Industry ; In their
names at whoso feet you tlrst learned
the sad but glorious history of your
nation , and who are now perhaps in their si-
lout graves. She calls to you in the name of
nil that can move the human heart ; In the
name of God and liberty to stand forward ns
' her help nnd strength In this hour of need.
She asks of you no sacrillco of blood and
tears such as your fathers mado. Ireland
SCOB homo rule within her grasp , but her
purso-proud foes sling the epithet of beggar
in her face , and , in sight of the promised
land , they threaten to starve her in the des
ert of slavery. Children of Ireland in Amer
ica , whom God has blessed with means ubovo
all your wants , will you , before the world ,
permit old mother Erin to perish for want of
that which you possess in a plentitude of
abundance. ) If It were England that cried
aloud for the assistance of her oxllcd sons ,
within thirty days ouo thousand Englishmen
could bo found In America who would not
hesitate to subscribe ) u thousand dollars each.
Wo have flvo thousand Irishmen and Irish-
Americans who would do the same , nnd Ire
land on her knees , in tears and in chains ,
with llfo , liberty and happiness almost withli :
her roach , bogs for that financial aid. with
out which she must tlio. Wealthy Irishmen
of America , God , Ireland and humanity are
looking upon you. Will you bo equal to the
occasion ! Will you do for Ireland In this
Valley Forgo of her struggle what the Irisl
merchants of Philadelphia did for that Amor
lean liberty to which you owe. so much , when
money alone could save the starving soldiers
of Washington !
The Uov. Dr. O'Uoilly , of Detroit , Mich ,
treasurer of the Irish National league o :
America , has prepared n book as a roll o
honor to bo preserved in the Irish archives
containing the names nnd addresses of al
who in this final contest will give of their
means to win back an Irish parliament. Mus
this roll contain but the names of the bravo
workers who for years Imvo given of their
scanty time and means all that has been
asked for by Ireland in her long and wear ;
light ! They Imvo built the foundations am
liuvo reared the pedestal. Wealthy Irishmen
of America will you place thereon the statue
of Irish liberty and purchase in the years to

JAILER AND JAILBIRDS.
Something About Douglas County's
1'rlson and How it is Conducted.
A visit to the county Jail was made yesterday -
day by a Bpj ; representative and under the
guidance of Jailer Miller a tour of Inspection
was made of that well kept institution. The
prison has nincty-thrco inmates at present
four of whom nro women. Imprisonment In
such a place as the Douglas county jail Is
comparatively free from the misery found In
like institutions. The degradation and the
loss of liberty of ccurso remains but the Im
munity of the officers tends to ameliorate
those sufferings. The Jail under the present
management is conducted on enlightened
principles. Absolute cleanliness is ono of
the most vigorous demands made upon the
prisoners. The floors , the walls , the bedding ,
the gratings and everything In the interior of
the cells denote how well this law is carried
out. Not n stain could be seen upon the
floors nnd oven the gratings wore free from
dust and shone us though freshly varnished.
The interior of the , cells were neat as could
bo. The beds were nicely made up and
everything was in first-class1 ordef.

Sometimes this bill of faro Is varied by serv
ing chicken or turkey orsoup. It Is usual for
the shorllt of a county to limit the faro of the
prisoners so as to mnuo a profit on the amount
allowed by the county , but it is undoubtedly
n fact that the meals issued to the prisoners
in the Douglas county Jail cost the full
amount allowed. The capacity of the prison
is about 114 initiates. 11 is rather small for
present needs and will soon have to bo en
There arc only two prisoners in the
Jail charged with murder. They nrn :
William Bcrcdca , a half - breed ,
charged with killing a man on
the Sax and Fox reservation. Ho is an
I United States prisoner and has been In Jail
for several months. Ho is is quiet and causes
uo trouble to the Jailor. Peter Lutz , charged
with killing a man numcd Lynch Is ulso very
, quiet and poai'cablo. Thoio tire two other
United States prisoners In the Jail , charged
j with counterfeiting. Ono is John Kusscll ,
who was brought In Friday ntqht iromlJrowli
county. The other Is S. T. Lester , who has
been hero for some months. There are also
ton burglars conllncd In tlio prison.
The manner in which the Jail is conducted
I reflects great credit upon Sheriff Co burn and
especially upon the Jailer , Mr , Joseph Miller.
I For the past eight years ho has held the posl-
I tlon always without a deputy and never has
a prisoner escaped. Mr. Miller Is a strict
disciplinarian , but Is kind nnd humane. Ho
Insists upon absolute obedience of the rules
and by Ills firmness controls ninety
to ono hundred men , many of whom
are dnsperato characters. Such a record as
this is u most honorable one , and It Is no won-
j dcr that ho stands so high in the estimation
of his superior and friends.
