!'"That Ireland 1 the poorest govern-'

England doesn't try to make' it other
wise, but because (be doesn't under

dree on "The Irish In Ulster" at the
Young Men '1 Christian Association lust
evening. ,,.'. 1
"la the year 1800 thero were eight
millions of people in Ireland, while to
day there are but four and one-half
millions. Labor is poorly paid, alms
houses and asylums are crowded, while -the
youths of ambition art leaving for
other land. Conditions are found there
which exist in no other country in the
world. ' Thi hn why many' Irishmen
want Home Rule,
'If the Home Rule bill had been in
troduced into parliament as a local
government measure the v Orangeman
would never have objected. He, how
ever, feara his southern , countrymen.
Hi loyalty, which i intense, i largely .
a loyalty to Vbiter,". continued Mr.

in which the Orangemen had threaten- '
ed and protested but had not tome to

not take that extreme at the present

"The sectarian hatred of the Orange
man ia caused largely by. the tragic his
