have been taken by the PollBh govern

for the worse owing to Mr. Lloyd
George's rocent speech accuslng Poland
of backing the movement which
brought about tho uprising.
All efforts to communicate with
Adelbert Korfanty. leader of the Polish
insurgents, having failed, Premier
Witos himself, accompanied by Min?

Sosnowice, just east of the Silesian
frontier, from which place they are
trying to communicate with Korfanty
to inducc him to end the insurrection
and permit affairs to take their natural
ccurse toward a peaceful settlement.
The government asserts that it has
had no communication with Korfanty
bince the insurrection began.
Mr. Lloyd George's speech is bitterly
eriticized by the Warsaw press, which
interprets it as a virtual invitation to
j^rman troops to invade the disputed

republic, which, it says, has been
bandicapped by Great Britain from the
beginning. The newspapers strongly
oppose any move which might bring
Poland even to the brink of war with
Germany. In Polish diplomatic circles

BELFAST, May 16 (By The Associat
ed Press).- Lord Tlugh Cec.H. member
of the Privy Council of England, who ;
1s the guest of Lord Londonderry's
family in Mount Stewart, County Down,
has suggested a scheme by which Ire?
land would be made an independent
kingdom, Its king to bc a member of
the Windsor family, probably the
Prince of Wales, to be appointed by the '
King of England.
Under the proposal there would be
two small parliaments, one to be lo?
cated in Belfast and tho other in Dub?
lin, and, in addition, a "House of Ea
tates" of one hundred members. Com?
plete fiscal autonomy would be given
Ireland, but there would bo a !< ?
posed for imperial defense in propor
tJen lo the sum contributed by England
for that purpose.
Ireland, under. the plan, would be al?
lowed to have an army, but no navy.
_nd in the event of war the King of
England could suspend the Irish con?
stitution. Irlshmen in the coloniea
would have the right to ehoose whether
they should be subjects of tbe Irish or
English king. If favorablV received by
the Irish leaders the suggestion would
be submitted to a conatituont assembly.
Some of the southern Irish U
including John Dillon, to whom th"
scheme was outlined described it as
"preposterous." Lord Hugh Cecil in
discussing it said hc still favored
union, but as that no ionger war, prac?
tical politics and f< .leralism did not
satisfy the Irish, >vho wanted a dis
tinct nationality, i'lngland must go as
far in the direction they wanted as
possible. Whatever plan was proposed,
he declared, m_3t be one framed ana
approved by the Irish but also ac
ceptable to the British. Lord Hugh
then ouUined his plan, adding: "I
write this in no spint of optimism."
Tha .ignificance of Lord Hugh's pro?
posal ccmes from the fact that he is
the goest of the Londonderry family.
the greatest member of which was
Lord Castlereagh, to whom more thr.r.
to anybody else the breaking up o*
