T0 HELPLENGLAND AGAINST IRELAND Part of Legislation Now Before Congress ls Directly Aimed At Irish Patriotic Societies Which Have Never in Fifty Years Violated American Lawr Under Pretence of Enforcing Neutrality, Its Real Object Is to Prevent Legitimate Aid Being Given to Ireland to Free Herself From English Oppression--Repaying England For Help Given the South to Smash the UnionmLoyaIty and Valor Repaid By Base In- gratitude-Tlte Infamous Measure Must Be Beaten-Get After Your Congressman ' and Senators Immediately and Let Them Know They Must Answer to the People. Seventeen bills, drawn by the Department of Justice some inoiitlis ztgo ztre now bot"oi'o Congress as war inodsures to enable the Pi'esideiit to deal with any cinergency that may arise. To most of them there can be no objection by nny patriotic Ainericnn in case of a foreign wdr, though their expediency in tinic of peace is qucstioiirible. " But sandwiched in among them is one vicious and wholly uiijustiiinble iiicasilre which is thus described in the news despatohes given to the press, evidently by the Departinent of Justice itself: more stringent the prohibitions against export of arms to be used against a friendly nation nod those against revolutionary conspiracies against a friendly nation fomented in this country. Notwithstanding the rather general wording of this description, it is undoubtedly in- tended to have special application to patriotic Irish societies which have existed in the United States for more than half a century, whose members have always been loyal to the United States and mnny thousands of whom fought. for the Union in the Civil War and the War with Spitin. They have had in their rnnks Governors of States. Mayors of Cities, Congressiiien and Senators, and have been treated with respect Zultl syinpnthy by more than one President of the United States. Their; only offense now is that they demand for Ireland the Nzttionnl Indo- pendence which the Allies claim to be fighting to give to all small no ' tions. President Cleveland, when a private citizen, defended the Fenittns arrested in Budnlo for connection with the Invasion of Canada. h arms with which the Invasion was made were purcltasetl from the United States Government, on the instructions of Secretary of State William H. Seward, in order to force England to arbitrate the “Alnbtimd” Clziims. resident Johnson received E1 committee of the Fenian Ilrotlierhood and at its request ordered the release of John Mitchel, grandfather of the present Mayor of New York, then im- prisoned by the Federal Government, in order that he might proceed to France to not as the financial agent. of the Irish Revolutionary iiicvemcnt. resident Grant, the General who brought the Civil War to ti victorious end and re- unitod the Republic, ordered the released Fenian prisoners who arrived in New York in 1871 brought to the city in the Revenue Cutter, :1 United States vessel, but this signal honor to the " ‘ ‘ Irish “ ' ' ' was frustrated by atrick of illiam M.

Andvtliey wet-c hioartained for at week by the City of Washington as its guests. Phil. Sheridan, one of America's three greatest Generals, offered to take command of the Fenland on condition that the su 0 men. arms and ammunition were adeqiinte, and hundreds of officers of the Fedcrnl and Confederate armies were ready to Eght under him for rolan . is was the attitude of these great Americans towards Irish patriotic societies which sought to free Ireland from tho blight of English rule. The vast inttjcrity of the generous. liberty-loving American people have always syinpnthizetl, with Ireland's effoikg to win for her- self the same degree of liberty which they secured for themselves by the evolution. The great Wendell Phillips spoke for all Americans when he said he conceded to all oppressed peo- ples the right to" choose for themselves the methods by which their freedom must be won. The purpose of the Department of Justice in this proposal is clearly indicated by its action last year. In violation of American low and without a warrant, rttzents of the Depart- ment enterod a sub-oilice of the German Einliassy in New York and seized certain papers. the legal value of which its evidence was appraised by it New York jury. which acquitted the only prisoner against whom any of it was produced in court. 11 the papers illegally seized was it copy of n men age from Dublin regarding the lnndiug of IA cargo of German it ms in Ireland. Thnt message was not a breach of American neutrality, but its contents were at once communicated to the British Govcrninent, with dis- astrous consequences to the Irish patriots. That was El. breach of Attierlrnn neutrality 8.l.'l(l a shnmefiil act of treachery. It was on nttempt to repcy England for her help in tho effort to break up the Union against a people whose sons had fought gitllnntly to preserve the Union. When such action was taken in violation of Amerimn law What may not the Depart- 'ment of Justice, headed by a man whose English sympathies are notorious, do when given a blanket authority by 9. vaguely worded, but sweeping Act of Congress? Tlint it will be on in- strument of tyranny, exercised, not in the interests of the United States, but of it foreign Power, there can be no reason to doubt. The bill has not yet become law nnd its passage should be opposed and resisted by every legitimate means in the power of the poop o. It can do no good to lneriost and will only work to the benefit of foreign despotisms in their efforts to maintain their hold over con- quered peoples. If the American people are made to understand the evil purpose it is intended to serve they will insist on its withdrawal or defeat. Get busy with your friends and neighbors, and ask their help in frtistrttting this at- tempt to aid despotism and the rule of the foreigner over peoples who seek only the some lib- erty which the American Constitution guarantees to all citizens. If it should become law it will be an indelible disgrace to this Republic and will prepitrc the way for future invasions of the liberty of the citizen. Bring pressure, instant and strong. on your Congressman nnd Senators to vote against this Il'l.Sl(Il0l'lS instrument of tyranny. Let them know that they are sent to Washington to do the Peoples bidding. not to obey the orders of it Boss or submit. to the dictation of corrupt newspapero controlled by influences outside the United States. alto the men you have elected iintlerstnnd clenrly tlint they must reckon with the People. who will hold them to it strict nccountztbility for their action on this bill. Use the mails. the telegraph. the telephone, and your voice, not alone on your elected Representatives, but on all men who have any influence over them. Leave nothing undonc that hiimiin ingenu- ity can devise to secure the defeat of this infninotis measure. It is intended to destroy Ireland's lost hope of Nrttionnl Independence and of averting the cxtiiicticil of the race at the hands of England. Defeat it: destroy it. rind lot every man in both Houses of Congress know that it vote for it by members from many States will be the end of their political career. Speak out everywhere. Let the whole country be heard from. and '.Vll.l’lU‘ilt delay. to Government of this gi'ec.t country itiust not be permitted to place its glorious insti- ttitions and its grrcnt power at the rcrvicc of the tyrant expelled from her shores at tho Revo- lution nrcziinst o pcol“,c who helped to nml-‘ti that Revolution. who lirtvc shed their blood in its (left-lice in ovc>.ry crisis of its liistnry. and who have (lone their full sliare in building up its 5'il'(‘IlEjill riiitl power. ‘ T It’. pzistlngo cl illl“. bill woiiltl be on not of base ingrdtittttle lVlllt‘.ll the Aniericztn peo- pin must not ricrmit their Congress to consuiiiinate. 59 .-s so ‘ht .-2-he ,9’; a. t A nutona uI<ttzrid- N...
