[ 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- Hay. Hay.Our 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 struggle ; having it they can bid defiance tc the enemy.

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.

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. S.P.MORSE&CO.

Agents for Foster Lacing Gloves. Any prisoner maliciously disobeying this law is [ mulshed by being deprived of meat , or If considered unsubdued is placed upon ti diet of bread and water until ho is icudy to obey the rule. The prisoners are well fed , except these sentenced by the lower court to bo given only bread and water. Two good wholesome meals are served each day. Breakfast is served nt 8 o'clock and consists of fried meats , pota toes , bread nnd coffee. The meat Is of excel lent quality and is nicely cooked. Kadi man is given n full paund loaf of bread. No milk or sugar Is served with the coffco. Dinner Is served at ! 3 o'clock and consists of roast meats , potatoes , beans , nnd other vegetables. 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 larged. 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.
