The statements regarding Ireland':
war tervice are based upon official
utterances of the British authorities.
Lord Wimborne, lord lieutenant
of Ireland, reported to Lord Kitch
ener on Jan. 14, 1916, that thert
were 51,046 Irishmen serving at
regulars and reservists in the Britisl
army in August, 1914. According to
Sir Eric Geddes, in the house of
commons, there were, up to 1918
170,000 enlistments in Ireland. Ac
cording to the statement of T. P.
O'Connor, M. P., after a statistical
survey, there were niore t.han 35,
000 Irish boys temnporarily employed
away from home who enlisted in
English and Scotch regiments it
1914.-1915. According to \\imt
burne's report, there were s 54(
Irishmen in the English navy. II
1918 there were more than 7,001) ad
ditional enlistments in Ireland, aunt
a consi rvativatisestimtate gives an
addition of 4,'000 navy and navy re
serve enlistnglots. This gives us a
total of 275,592 Irishmen from Ire
land fighting in the English army
and navy in the war.
Even Lord Morris, late prime
minister of Newfoundland, who is
not in favor of the Irish retlublic.
recently wrote: "Nothing coultd be

Victoria Cross proudly worn on the

battlelfields of the empire was dtue
to that fatal policy pursued at thu
war otfice---a policy in which every
thing hutmanly possible was done to
make recruiting nmore difficult."
But it was not alone the war office
tactics thait checked recruiting after
the first response. It was a matter
of far d(eeper concern to the Irish

borne reported that there were then
only 41u1,.00 single men of military

This tremendous shortage of man
power i; Ireland must be considered.
For it has f12rtAl earliest times been
the English governmental policy to
so conduct l(s Irish affairs as to
wipe :uti the manhood (and the
womaulnood, as well) of that country.
England would have the Irish
situation adjusted by making Ire
land a non-Irish country.
In 15114 Ireland had about 5,000,
000 -atrle and 9,000,000 people.
In 191 I Ireland had more than
10,000,0i, cattle and only a little
more than 4,000,000 people.
These figures are eloquent. Ent
land's ;mlinistration of Ireland had
obviously favored the raising of
cattle and the extinction of Irishmen.
Sinn Fein well know this, .and,
after the first period of generous
volunteering was over, determined
to pr vent a further diminution of
Ireland's i.opulation; it blocked re
cruiting by declaring that the first
duty of Irishmen in the battle for
democracy was to preserve the safe
ty and rights of Ireland, which had
been waging this self-same battle
for more than 700 years. This
could not be accomplished by the
young Irish manhood.
If Ireland had recruited men at
the rate that England would have
had her do il---while Englishmcn
stayed at home--the Irish nation
would now be nearer extinction than
Serbia or Belgium.
The British program of Irish en
listment, like the earlier British
programs of evictions, throttled in
dustries, artificially created famines
and tnforced emigration, threatened
the Gaelic nation with death. Yet.

to carry on the defense of the Bulletin staff in the courts. Two
members of the staff have been fined a total of $9,500, on
charges of sedition, charges which were the direct result of
the effort of the corrupt political machine in Montana to put
a free press out of business. The cases have been appealed
to the State Supreme Court. It requires money to fight
these cases through the various courts; it takes money for
traveling expenses, etc., for transcripts of evidence and ste
nographers' hire. None of the money goes to pay lawyers'
fees, the lawyers engaged in the cases not only having donat
ed their services, but actually paying their own expenses.
The fines imposed and the expenses of fighting the cases
through the courts, are the result of the Bulletin Staff keep
