WHERE IS "IRISHMAN”?
TO THE EDITOR,
Sir,— On the Bth and 9th of last month two letters appeared in the Evening Star against Home Rule for Ireland under the signature of “ Irishman,” In common with many others, I asked Who is “ Irishman ”? and challenged him to throw aside his now, de plume and boldly meet the champions of the cause he was assailing. But the great “ Sir Oracle ” of Irish politics is still silent. A whole month has passed away, and—except a promise that he intended shortly again to take the field —he has made no sign or manifestation. The inquiry was Who is “ Irishman ”? Now it is Where is " Irishman ”? Is he sleeping quietly among the dead men ? or is he reserving his strength till the “ mighty 4 Thunderer’ of Printinghouse square ” —more aptly christened by Cobbett “ the lying ‘ Times ’’’—hashes up another budget of forged letters to blacken the reputation of the representatives of the Irish people? If "Irishman” be not a myth let him buckle on his armor and fight manfully for his opinions.—l am, etc., E. S. Mantz. North-east Valley, June 4.
