Freeing of Griffith and

Situation Is Encouraging
"Republic's" President Will
Demand Terms Similar to
Those Given South Afriea

LONDON. July 2.?After Eamon de
Valera's meeting: Monday in Dublin
with leaders of the minority factions
in Ireland the "president of the Irish
republic'' is confidently expected to ac?
cept Premier Lloyd George's invita?
tion to a conference in London to dis?
cuss a settlement of the Irish question.
Reports from Dublin say that the
release of Arthur Griffith and Pro?
fessor John Mac.Neill, two rebel mem?
bers of Parlament who have been in
prifor. the last year, has made a good
in.pression of the sincerity of the Lon- j
der. government. In Republican circles
there ie some dissatisfaction with De
Valera's tactics of delay, some holding
thai 's hesitation in making a final;
reply to the Premier's irvitation is in?
juring his own ci.use.
De Valera has asked the Southern
Unionists to use their influence to sr
rar.ge a conference between him and
Sir James (raie:, the Ulster Premier,
who "ill not attend Monday's factional
meeting. Among those who will ac
eompany the "president of the Irish re
public" to the London gathering is
John MacKeown, who is now in Mount
joy prison under sentence of death for
the Murder of a police inspector. He is
.one of the leaders of the Irish repub?
lican army and a powerful force in
Sinn F?m councils.
Will Demand Presence of Smuts
De Valera will demand the presence ;
of General Jan C. Smuts, Premier of !
the Union of South Africa, at the Lon- I
don conference. The Sinn Fein lender
will ask Premier Lloyd George to state .
the terms of the settlement he pro- ;
pos-;-, if these fall below the grants1
given South Africa under her constitu- !
tiqn. De Valer? will appeal to General i
Smuts, asking him whether he would ?
accept similar terms. If the British !
government agrees to give Ireland the ;
same terms ?? were obtained by South ]
Africa after the Boer War De Valera
will promise to return to Ireland and ;
'eommend their acceptance by the;
De Valera probably would accept a
limitation for a period of years of the
right of Ireland to exercise the do?
minion's privilege of complete acces?
sion from the Brit'sh Empire.
The situation is developing in an ex?
ceedingly encouraging wsy, ;<nd at last
the prospect of a truce in Ireland and
the =ettlemenf of differences there
seems excellent. The prers generally is
?reserving an attitude favorab'e to ne?
gotiation, ana. with few exceptions, thf>
nev.-spapers are giving Premier Lloyd
George every encouragement for his
'icy of conciliation. The New
nan says :
"An Irish correspondent writes: 'It
would he folly to disguise the fact that
though Ireland desires nothing more
ardently than peace, the average Irish?
man hopes, rather than expects, that
Lloyd George's invitation to De Videra
end Sir James Oraig will provide a way
out of a situation which, by universal
admission, is intolerable.'
Dropped Policy of Violente
"In Great Britain it is taken for
granted that the Cabinet has dropped
the plan of imposing a settlement on
Ireland because the Georgian olive
branch followed the brandishing of the
Birkenhead bludgeon. Ireland is sus?
picious, with good reason, of double
dealing by the coalition and has still
to be convinced that the olive branch
was proffered in earnest and not as
an excuse r.o justify a more drastic
use of the bludgeon.
"There are republicans who even a
Bign from heaven would not persuade
that Great Britain might be trusted
to act fairly toward Ireland. But the
men whose opinions count in the move?
ment are not of this type. The major?
ity of the leaders, including most of
the prominent activities upon whose
head the government has set a price,
are honestly anxious for a reasonable
settlement and are ready to make sub?
stantial compromises to obtain it."
The Saturday Review, which appears
to-day under new management and an?
nounces that henceforth it will be non
"The government has stumbled at
last on the only path to a tolerable
settlement and the country,, we believe,
will hold them to it."
G. K. Chesterton, in The New Wit?
"There are sincere peacemakers even
in the government and thousands of
them in the country. It is to these
that we must look to make the real
t Terence succeed whether or no the
politicians mean it to succeed."
Many Killed Following Ambush
DUBLIN. July 2 (By The Associated
Press).?Many men are believed to
have been killed in fighting following
the ambush of a police patrol by civil

Dromore yesterday. Seven constables

l>rBUN. July 2 (By The As?

Eireann, or Irish Republican
Parliament, issued a proclama?
tion to-day stating that on the
Fourth of July the flag of the
United States will receiv? of?
ficial honor throughout Ireland.
This honor will be given, the
proclamation says, "in apprecia?
tion of the sympathy and aid
given our people by their friends
in the United States, and as the
recognized symbol throughout,

which we are fighting, namely,
that governments derive their

the indications are the filibuster will

that the full military resources of the
country might become immediately

The Question of economy also was
touched on by General Pershing, who

Secretary Weeks's order directs corps
division commanders to approve the

LONDON. Julv 2 (By The Asso?

Carpentier had been a popular favorita

was no less keen than if he had been
Among the followers of pugilism,
ruled by judgment rather than by sen?
timent, Dempsey had by long odds the
strongest backing. Both Joo Beckett
and Bombardier Wells, the English
heavyweights, who went down to de?
feat before the French idol, before the
fight gave it as their opinion that
Dempsey should win. The letter's
additional remark, however, '"but all

the feeling of the general public.

a fierce. short duel. Thousands
watched the sky for the colored lights

result, which similarly were shown

The French liner France from Havre,

had been knocked out by Dempsey.
Excursion boats jammed to the rails
with merry-makers steamed in close to
her and shouted: "Your frog is licked.
Passengers at the rail, many of them
French, understood what was said.
Others, who did not, inquired what the
Americans were shouting, and when in?
formed merelr shrugged their shoul

the vessel by radio. There was an

i at 7 o'clock last night there was littl?
i or no discussion of the defeat of Car
I pentier. For all the French on board
! it was a closed incident.
