"The Irish struggle for freedom has reached a momentous period. Ire land, abandoned In the crisis of her. fate by the Liberal leaders, is told by the Tory secretary to the lord lieuten ant that the British government is sternly and unalterably opposed to the granting of any measure of home rule whatever.' This is the old policy and the old language employed by suc cessive English governments toward Ireland. She has been alternately be trayed by the Whigs and dragooned by the Tories. Nothing worth her ac ceptance is to be expected from either of the leading English parties. Ire land must, therefore, look to her own children and descendants for support in her great extremity. Parliamen tary agitation has had a long and pa tient trial, but has utterly failed to accomplish its object. It remains for us to consider what other method of procedure or argument can be used to achieve her liberation. The Irish race in America cannot afford to be neutral or supine while the motherland is be ing slowly but surely done to death by the usurping enactments of a foreign and hostile power. .We therefore urge you to take into , consideration - the present status of the Irish struggle for freedom, and to devise ways and means best suited to the accomplish ment of Ireland's independence."

Fred Grant of New York. "It is an interesting coincidence," says the San Francisco Call of the 19th,' 'that two sons of Gen. Grant ap peared last Mpnday at important meet ings held in widely separated parts of the country. Jesse Grant of Arizona, youngest son of the illustrious soldier, was chosen temporary chairman of the fourth National irrigation congress held at Albuquerque, N. M.', and Col. Fred Grant made the principal speech on that day before the society of the Army of the Tennessee, which held its annual reunion at Cincinnati. This speech was particularly interesting for the directness and simplicity which were such marked characteristics of the old general." This occurs in the speech: "Since I have the honor of acting as one of the commissioners of police in New York city, several papers have said com plainingly that I wished to infuse too much military spirit into the police force there, and that I should remem ber that it is a guard of peace that is really needed and not one of war. It is true that I do not object to a martial spirit among policemen, knowing that gentleness, kindness "and peacefulness are always to be found in the hearts of , the bravest soldiers. All the world knows how you, the nodle soldiers of the Army of the Tennessee, after la boriously working your way to Vicks burg and enduring the fatigues and trials of that long campaign and siege, entered as victors at last not to tri umph cruelly over your defeated ene mies, but to divide your rations with them as with brave fellow-soldiers, and to extend them all consideration and mercy. I have all the more cour age in speaking to you, because I ex perienced much kindness at your hands when a lad of 13 years. I was with you during the siege of Vicks burg, probably very much in the way, although you, who were so busy in the' great conflict, still found time to show me much friendly consideration."
