New York, September 18. Alexander
Sullivan, ex-Piesident of the National
League, writes to the World as follows:
To the Editor of the World:
As you have shown a disposition to be
fair to those who are opposed to you, I
will ask you to correct a misstatement
made in the editorial columns of the
World that I was deposed "from the
Pretideucy of tlie Irish National League
of America, for attempting to
drag American politics luto the
league. Your own columns
boro testimony to my refusal to
speak In relerence to American politics,
while I held that position. They also
show that I was unanimously, by accla
mation, re-elected aud declined to serve.
You quote this morning from a weekly
paper to the effect that in 18t!8, when
supporting Grant, I declared that the
Irish who voted the Democratic ticket
are not as good as negroes; I never
used such language nor did I ever
think or say anything that any honest
mau could torture into meaning
what I am thus falsely accused of hav
ing said. You say I never voted
for a Democrat in my life. I went Into
the Democratic party in 1873 with Hor
ace Greeley, desiring homo rule for the
Southern States, and believing he would
Insist on protecting American industry.'
I voted for Tllden and for Hancock. I
was on the Democratic Campaign Com
mittee for Cook County, Illinois, in 1880,
and would now support and vote for
Thormao, Randall or Butler, if nominated
by the Democrats.
