8ATUBPAY MOHN1NG, AUG. CO, ltH.
&3 The uncertainty and apprehension
of three or four weeks ago have given
way, and the Republican party of
Kansas was never so earnest as now,
mor ever more certaiu of a sweepiug
victory. In the place of the old hur
rah of yean go, and the dejection of
two years ago, there 19 now a reso
luteness that brooks no foollsliucss(h-d
a determination that means disappoint
ment and disastrous defeat to all party
traitors. Leading spirits of the late
mutiny against the Republican party,
and the allies of Glide, are no longer
being countenanced by honest Repub
licans, who, for the sake of harmony,
and in hopes of winning these men
back into the true path t principle,
had yielded anu consented uutil it
itemed almost that there were more
enemies than friends in the great
army of progress and freedom. Hap
pily this conservatism has given way
to a iguificaiitlycrioiis resolve upon
the part of the great body of the Re
publicans of Kansas, a rcsolvo that
plainly says that further foolishness
and dilly-dallying can result i.i no
good, but, upon the other hand, mii't
endanger all future triumphs of the
oaly politicial principles for which the
party is worth saving. The great
body of the cx-Rcpublican toldit'rs
will, this fall, vote as they (-hot, with
out any reference to the fact whether
their sorehcaded friend have any
whisky to drink or not. Such a tem
per as is new evinced by Republicans
ia all sections of the state, means, not
only an overwhelming majority for
Blaine and Logan in Kansas, but the
election of John A. Martin, and
all seven congrcssmon, the entire state
ticket, a Republican h-gi-ialiirc and
a Republican United States senator by
unquestioned, tin wavering and tri
umphant majorities, Two or three
counties in the state, ami Sedgwick i
one of them, will be considerably torn
by tactions which have been developed
by ambitious and untrue Republicans

In ScJgwirk even, the faith begotten
of the spirit and resolves referred to,
will sweep away every obstacle aud
every job et up by the men whoie
ambitions over-ride ther principles
and who would rather be traitors
and leaders than to be true to their
convictions ud lcs promiu'-nt. In

Coitjretswan John F. Fiaerty's Stinting
Address to his CMRtrynea.
An awful howl has gone up from a
certain bigoted section of the Demo
cratic party because some prominent
Iri-h-Amefican citizens in Chicago,
X i'W York, Buffalo, Rock Island and
other citizens throughout the union
have declared their preference for the
prcsidcntal nominee on the Republi
can ticket, the howl is raised simply
because these gentlemen arc of Irish
birth or decent. It appears that an
Anglo-American, a German-American,
or any other kind of an Ameri
can, who is not also Irish, niav change
his opinion on political questions
whenever he chooses without loss of
casts, but for an Irishman to do it is
pronounced "heresy" by the great po
liticil doctors who think they own
him body nnd soul.
This kind of ridiculous assumption
on the part of tho doctors aforesaid,
would be only laughable wejo they
not aided and emboldened in their

the Irish-American people themselves,
who join in the cry agaiust their in

It wus iu lain that he said he was a
Democrat that believed in buying and

that lie relerred to the example of

thought of him for congress. Fer
nando Wood might go there, Brooks
might go any other narrow politi

son to the republic, might go there
but there was no room for Meagher.
At last, as everybody knows, this most
brilliant and gallant gentleman died
while ading governor of Montana,
and ei en tnat favor did not confc
Irom Democratic hands.
We hud hoped that this species, of
political ostiacisin was dead, nut it is
not. "Renegade," "apostate," heret

hurled by the Democratic press at
Mn.lt Irishmen a have the sterling
imudiod to assert the courage of their
convictions; and, shame ot nil shames,
some ot their own countrymen,
bounded by the narrow horizon of
their invincible prejudice, join in this
iiolfi h cry against them. But all that
kind of persecution will not prevent
others Irom telling the Democratic
bosses to go to the devil if necessary.
It seems to ut that nowadays to be
a 'straight Democrat" means" to be a
mere humau machine. There must
be no kicking. He must swallow any
nomination, however insulting to his
puvaie sentiments. Ho must accept
the thoroughly English doctrine of
"free t rade," even though it should
make it impossible for him to keep
liis rebellious stomach in proper sub
jection. He must "keep his mouth
shut.' except when he opens it to
cheer for the Democratic ticket from
top to bottom. We virtually belicie
that if the Democratic boses could
re-nrrect Ilcuiy VIII and Olivei
Cromwell, and naturalize and put
them at the head or their ticket, thoy
would expect "straight-out" Irish
Democrats to vote for them.
After the dissolution of the nativist
party many of the know-nothings,
who had slave-holding proclivities,
joiued the seccders in the dreadful ef
fort to overthrow me government oi
the union by armed rebellion. Xoth
ing is ever said by Democratic doctois
about these worthies.
Influenced by a feeling of gratitude
r.ud blinded bv specious npi csenta
tiou, quite a large contingent of Irish
American was led to si mpathize with
the (copper-head aud confederate
Democraei) promoters of tho civil
war. Their cupidity was appealed to
and their auger was" excited to some
extent against the negro rat", then in
servitude. Thoy were told by Demo
cratic orators that slaiery wus justi
fied bv the bible, aud that it would be
"iinco'nstitutioual" to abolish it. 'flic
ver name of abolitionist was niado
hateful to Irish ears by these same
Democratic orators, although the abo
litionists counted such friends of Irish
hlifrtvns tho late Weudell i'hillins.
Thus "was presented to the American
prople tho extraordinary spectacle of
a raco which had struggled long anil
manfully for freedom at heme voting
for andVith the men who wished to
maiutaiu 6lavcry in America.
"Tho "workers ' would get among
tho nconle and tell them they muut
look at tho men, but at the success of
tho party: justas ii in un were
nominated for prcsideut by tho Dem
ocratic partVi a31- elected, hU hellish
myrmidons would not Je preferred

before the men whose votes had elec
ted him. It Is really fiue logic, this
Democratic argument, addressed to
Irish-Americans. And it Is ia this
spirit we are addressed.
And for the Irishnrn-who applaud
and indorse this Democratic slave
driving and bulldozing which permits
all "other citizeus but them to differ
and vote as they please without abuse,
we have nothing but the most pro
found contempt. Let them vote as
thev please tlieraselvevu"t let them

A QUESTION NOT ANSWERED.
Lvsnox. Kas.. August 23tb, 18S1.
To tue Editor of tbc Free lres:
Noticing tbat you are always ready to
answer questions, I have oue to propound.
It Is UiU: Wljy would it not be a good
plan to resubmit tbe prohibitory amend
ment to aiotc of tbc people, and by a full,
fair and Intelligent vote forever settle tbc
question? I am a prohlbltinn-resubmis-sionist
and there are many such. 1 do not

troublesome question can be settled except
by another i ote and tbat Is bound to come
sooner or later. R-S.
Axswnrt A l'tohibitionist can ba
in favor of resubmis-iou with perfect
consistcucv. It is hard to say what is
best to be done. Men differ honestly
about it. Some men oppose resub
mission, however, because they are iu
favor of the law whether a majority
of the people favor it or not. Others
favor resubmission for an exactly con
trary reason. These men are uot fair

812 voters may have voted ignorautly

on the principle that "silence gives
