UNSATISFACTORY TO MAJ ORITY1
(Special United Press Wire.)
London, Dee. 23.-The British press generally accept
ed with enthusiasm Lloyd George's plan for home rule
for Ireland, submitted to the house of commons yester
day. The premier's plan for separate parliaments for
Ulster and the south of Ireland was hailed by the morn
iig newspalpers as the only logical way to circumvent the"
antipathy between the two. sections.
George's plan provides that if the I

George's plan provides that if the
two parliaments join as one later,
further concessions to Ireland in the
increase of home rule will be given.
Ulster, under Sir 'Edward Carson, is
said to bIe in favor of the George
plan, but determined opposition is ex

In touching upon the reasons why
Great Britain could not afford to!
give up Ireland, the premier said
that the bmnount Of taxes derived by
England from Ireland amounted to
18,000,000 pounds sterling each
year. He said a joint board of rex
chequer would decide the rate of
Irish taxation for the British treas
ury in the future. He slated that
the British government would appro
priate from the Irish taxes the sm
of 1,000,000 pounds to cover the in
itial expenditures of establishing the
two separate parliaments.
The customs and excise services,
he said, would be retained by the im

was probable that the imperial parlia

should control her own customs.
British "Law and Order."
In answer to a question from the
floor of paliament, Lloyd George de
clares that the present program of
the cabinet for leland is to 'main
tain law and order there. England
appears to have a good deal of the
attitude of Pharcah toward the Irish,
and like Pharoah is unwilling '"to let
the people go" because of the profit
which can be made out of them.
Last December two out of every;
three Irish voters voted for the Irish
republic. Four out of every five
voted for self-determination. Only
one voter in every five voted for Eng
