The result of the Maine election
gives the Republican candidate for
governor 16,000 plurality and elects
all the republican congressmen. For
the state senate none but republicans
have been returned, whilo in the

in tho state voted for tho repub
lican candidates, and is considered as
significant of the result of tho Nation

rcBnlt of the Maine election cau now

The total votowill reach ono hnndrcd
and forty-two thousand, tho largest
ever thrown in this slate with a single

will exceed seventy-nine thousand,
the largest by four thousaud ever
thrown for any candidato in the state.
His majority over his democratic com
petitor will exceed 20,000 and may
reach 24,000, tho largest attained in
any presidential year sinco the repub

It is said that the majority is the

It seems to have been a sort of re

A good German Republican citizen
met us the other day and desired to

saying that they did not desire the

have got pretty low down in the scale
of hnman existence when they will
descend to lies of tbis sort. The re
publican party of Nebraska and of
the Union is proud to havo within its
folds men of every clime and of all
nationalities who have come here to
enjoy tho blessings of a free republi
can government, and to better their
condition; she asks the men who
think for themselves; tho men who
are striving to gaiu a competence for
themselves and families ; the men who
intend to do thoir share toward mak
ing this country what it ought to bo
in every particular, all these aro in
vited and welcomed to the folds of
the republican parly, a party the very
breath of whose life is freedom, under
just law6, and whose animating prin
ciple hati been and is that America
shall continue to bo the hope of The
down-trodden and tho lefuge of the
persecuted. The Republican party
desires political fellowship with all
good men who have the interests of
their con u try at heart, aud denounces
any such expression as that quoted in

It is a very entertaining spectacle

As Set Forth ! m Letter t the
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 4, 1884.
Editor State Journal:
Your contemporary, the Daily State
Democrat, having on two distinct
occasions referred, as I consider, most
unwarrantably and unfairly to my
political opinions now refuses, con
trary to all recognized rales of decent
journalism, to publish any but a gar
bled copy of my reply.
I send you herewith the letter
which I addressed to that journal in
full, and beg yon will do me the favor
of placing it before the pnblic.
Yours truly, Patbick Egan.
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 3, 1S84.
The Editor Daily State Democrat,
Sir: For the second time within the
past three weeks yon have dragged
my namo into tho political campaign,
although up to tho present moment I
have never publicly spoken or writ
ten a single word to give yon, as a
journalist, any ground for so doing.
Bcforo tho late Boston convention of
tho Irish national leaguo, I had, as the
result of close observation and careful
research, mado up my mind that thero
existed no good gronnds why the
democratic parly should hold any
mortgago on my voto because I hap
pened to be an Irishman. I weighed
with caro and deliberation tho merits
of the two presidential candidates
and I came to tho conclusion that
neithor as an Irishman nor as an
adopted citizen of America could Mr.
G rover Clevoland havo my support.
The case of Mr. John Dovoy on
on which you have again and again
referred to as the only gronnd of my
opposition to Mr. Cleveland, was only
one of the many objections which I
entertained to that gentleman.
I did indeed consider the treatment
meted out to Mr. Dovoy of the vory
basest kind and as a strong evidence
of either tho hostility and contempt
of Mr. Cloveland for Irishmen of
national opinions, but I objected also
to Mr. Cleveland as the pet candidate
of tho London Times, tho London
Standard, tho London Daily Tele
graph, tho London Daily News, the
London St. James Gazette, tho Lon
don Saturday Iievieio, in fact of the
entire English press. I objected to
him as the pet candidate of Puck and
Harper's Weekly, as the author of in
numerable vetoes in the interest of
the great monopolies, and as a man
who had, as I believed, proved him
self the enemy of every jnst right of
the toiling millions. I objected to
Mr. Cleveland because I felt proud of
tho country of my adoption and be
cause I felt that, in the words of the
Boston Pilot, a straight out and out
democratic organ "ho has not a sin
gle quality large enough to fit him
for the Presidency of the United
I had made up my mind to support
Mr. Blaine because from long obser
vation I had como to regard him as
the very -opposite of all this as an
American of Americans, a man
amongst men, as an able statesman
fitted by nature and culturo and ex
perience to fill with credit to the
country and to himself the position of
President of this great nation.
These were a few of the grounds of
my objection to your candidate aud
my preference for Mr. Blaine and, as
I havo before stated, they have never
up to the present been made public
by me, nor would they bo now if you
had not compelled me by your unfair
comments and by your unworthy
sneer at "Irish wisdom" to state them.
When, however, at Boston I accepted
the presidency of tho Irish National
league I considered that whatever my
private opinion might be I was then
precluded from taking any active
part in American politics. Accord
ingly I have abstained from taking
any part, nor shall I take any so long
as I hold the office.
This is my position ; and I muBt beg
of you, therefore, to spare me the
tronble of any further contradictions
or corrections on this subject. With
regard to your quotation from a
speech of Mrs. Parncll I yield to no
ono on this side of the Atlantic in tho
respect which 1 pay to the honored
mother of the man whom I am proud
to be able to claim as a personal
friend as well as a co-worker in tho
cause of Ireland Charles Stowart
Parnell, and I am euro sho will not
misunderstand me when I state my
conviction that sho would best con
sult the wolfarc of tho great move
ment in which she and I arc interested
and my belief that she would best
consult the desire of her son by keep
ing his namo entirely out of tho pres
ent political contest.

Editor Journal: No man has
spoken more despairingly of the polit
ical opinions of Messrs. Condon and
Walker than tho writor, but after
calmly reviewing tho status of both
parties in this campaign and studying
upon tho expressions of such men as
Patrick Ford, of the Irish World, M.
B. Gearon, of the Celt, Judge Bren
nan and John McHugh, I have mado
up my mind to accept tho Wisconsin
know-nothing's invitation "to go." I
have never been in Ireland myself but
I feel that I have too much Irish blood
in mo to train with such vile slander
ers of my race as Harper and Puck.
I havo all I can do to make a living
now without a free trade thcoryin
voguo. I am not in agony to bo set
down as a "straddlcr" or floppcr but
I feel independent enough to express
my opinions whether they may bo of
a pleasant nature or an unpleasant ono
at any timo or place. They call this a
free country, and thereforo I am a
free man, and I shall voto for whom I
please others of course can do the
same. I deeply regret the actions of
tho hoodlums in tho Belshazzar con
vention that dared insult my race, but
tho representatives of Toryism from
A.D. 1776, by heavens! shall pay for It
in their signal defeat in November.
If Irishman labor through a cloud of
ignorance in their own land which
was the luminary of civilization in
tho dark days, when tho ancestors of
Jones and Harper were clothed in the
skins of the beasts of the forest
through tyranny in this country, they
stand at par with the citizens of any
clime for intelligence, patriotism and
morality. They need no defence from

is said to bo on Wolf creek, and somo
very fine specimens of quartz show

scorns to be that there aro rich veins
of gold quartz in the Big Horn moun

alleged discoveries aro bona fide. The
