LLOYD GEORGE AT
Plebiscite Held Possible i
On Question of Peace
(Special Cable to Tb? Wa?Ma*tcn Herald
and United Newt.)
LONDON, Aug. 28.?Lloyd George ?
[direct reply to Eamonn de Valera
followed by his speech at Barnsley,
which reiterated the British
viewpoint that Ireland has
been offered not only every clement
of freedom compatible with the
safety of the empire, but "more
than was ever offered Ireland in
previous history," is expected to
bring forth a new expression from
the Dail Eireann tomorrow.
The Dail will meet in secret session
"to consider the British premier's
communication, and probably
will return an answer at the conclusion
of the session. The Barnsley
speech is expected to have a
direct influence upon the Dail's deliberations.
possibly to the extent
of forcing De Valera to go to his
own people in a plebiscite on the
question of acceptance or rejection
of the government's peace proposals.
Holiday Spirit Prevails.
If outward appearances are any
indication of the general sentiment
in Sinn Fein, the Irish people have
no fear of any immediate termination
of the negotiations and reversion
to warfare. Nowhere is
there a tightening of the military
lines. Members of the Irish Republican
army still stroll about the
streets of Dublin apparently unconcerned
over the future. A large
party composed of members of the
Irish parliament and their friends,
in the gayest of spirits, made a
picnic excursion in a fleet of motor
cars to Glendalough today and hoi- '
iday sentiment prevailed throughout
the south of Ireland.
Great significance is attached to
the arrival in London of Sir James
Craig, Ulster premier, who is expected
to confer with Lloyd George
during the next few days. It is
rumored, as well, tha| De Valera.
himself may appear on the scene i
during the latter part of next week.
Craig's presence here was brought <
about by an urgent summons by
the British cabinet, and would indi- i
cate that Lloyd George may make \
another attempt to persuade the \
Ulster leader to recede from his (
obstructionist stand. j
Sound* Warning to Ulster.
In this connection, Lloyd George'g 1
Barns ley speech was delivered with
one eye on the attitude of Ulster, i
His declaration that "the most j
cruel and most terrible civil war
the island has ever seen" would re- ,
suit from complete severance of Ire- ,
land from the United Kingdom and j
his appeal to "clear aside prejudice,** ,
were taken as warnings to Ulster ,
quite as distinctly as to Sinn Fein.
But the chief hope that the
negotiations will continue is contained
in- this fact: Lloyd George '
has declared that Ireland can have 1
anything short of complete sever- 1
ance?and De Valera has not ac- *
tually demanded the establishment^ *
of a republic in any of the inter-' >

BERLIN, Aug. 28.? Laying the
Kruilt for the murder of Mathias
Erzberger. former vice chancellor
and minister of finance, directly at
the door of the Kafserist group. President
Loebe. of the German Reichstag,
in an exclusive interview, declares
that d violent outburst may
be precipitated throughout Germany
as a result of the increasingly daring
demonstrations cf the reactionary
"The provocative work of the Nationalists,
such as the 'Front
Fighters' at Berlin, and other manifestations
in recent weeks cannot be
repeated without serious clashes,"
he declared. "Even without such
demonstrations the air is so electrified
by the occurrences which culminated
in the assaoel nation of Erzberger
that an outburst of extreme
violence may arise at .any moment."
Blamea Reactionary Preaa.
Loebe directly accused the reactionary
press and Nationalist agitation'in
parliament of fomenting the
plots which ended in Erzbergcr's
"The thought of blood revenge Is
ripening, because the Left and CenteT
parties feel that they are insufficiently
protected against this compaign
of murder," he said.
Von der Goltz and other speakers
in the Reichstag have bitterly attacked
Erzberger In recent speeches.
"The ground for murdering Erzberger,"
Loebe continued. "was the
false belief that Erzberger had been
guilty of the unfavorable outcome of
the peace negotiations and the fact
that his taxation schemes attacked

surely, but an unavoidable necessity

"Added to this is the complete
collapse of justice, which furthers
this murder agitation. The judges

penalty on those who attack
them. Murder is penalized so
lightly that It encourages murder.'
This assassination will have farreaching

Right Side for their undignified

that this will compel Wirth to call
