"But. let us su ppose the four

er minority of Irish nationalists who
would be thereby separated from
their compatriots in the rest of the
ieland and who would suffer at least
as many disabilities, being in a
minority in the new cut off portion
as the present mninority would suffer
in the whole of Ireland? Do you
Srealize that there are more Irish na
tionalists in the city of Belfast than
there are in the whole city of Cork?
The solution of the Ulster ques
tion is for Irishmen to be Irishmen
first, and after that to have any in
jdividual affection they may have for
such other countries as they please.
The spread of the national spirit in
Ireland in the past brought unity be
tween north and south. It is doing
it again today. And if England's in
terference were removed there
would be no serious minority ques
tion for an Irish state to solve. Eng
land has magnified this difficulty in
order to provide a much wanted ex
cuse for keeping Ireland subservient
1, her interests. and what real dif
fic;ilty there is is one solely of Eng
lish creation. As an independent
state we will settle our minorityi
quilestion in full light before a watch

land's case on which the American
public are so ill informed as on this

improvement all that those who
claimn thlere has been an improvemnent

apologists for English rule is simply
that we should be content because we
were less badly treated than we
might be. We don't want English
rule, good or bad. Our objection to
it is simply that it is foreign rule.
It reminds me of the attitude of the
governor of Lincoln prison whc

grateful that our treatment was not

getful that our grievance was not
that of our treatment whilst in the

"What prospect is there of further
Itrimed resistance to England? '
"In the past Ireland has protested
against English usurpation by every
means at its disposal. including
armed resistance. As long as the
usurpation continues the resistance
will continue, and the fortm it will
take will depend, as in the past on
circumstances. England was warned
in the past by Irishmen what would
happen when she got into difficil
ties. Remembering these warnings.

they had not used England's diffi

their freedom. They did not deserve
it, he said. because they were .iot

As in the Ipast. England's difficulties
were seized by Irishmen to free
themselves. The mouse that is be

fighting for elsewhere, joined Eng

to such an exten't that Asquith as late
as May, 1916, said: 'Irishmen of all
creeds and classes, north, south, east

to them. They have shed, they are
shedding today their blood, giving
the best of all they had, sacrificing
what they prized most, without stint
and without reserve, in the trenches
and on the battlefields, which will
forever be consecrated to the mem

and the dominions.' From Ireland
