LONDON, Sept. 2.?Prime Minister
Lloyd George has summoned a
special meeting of the British
cabinet at Inverness. Scotland, on
Wednesday next to discuss the
Sinn Fein reply which was delivered
to him last night by the
Irish couriers. The reply will not
be published for some days but it
has been sent to London for circulation
among the cabinet ministers
who have been summoned to
It is declared that the document
is short and that it proposes another
London meeting under certain
conditions, which the cabinet
will have to consider.
King George has arranged to be
at Moy Hall In the neighborhood
of Inverness, and he will be available
for consultation if required.
Probable Irish Delegates.
It is now stated in Dublin that
Irish plenipotentiaries have not
been appointed and that If the
British accept the suggestion for
a new conference another meeting
of Dail Elreann will be necessary.
It is certain, however, that De
Valera. Griffith. Collins. Stack and
probably Brugha and Oosgryve
will be among the delegates.
Belfast is quiet today, the troops
having taken conrol and occupying
all the street corners. Large
pickets have been distributed in
all quarters of the town.

"*All day on Monday vain appeals

confined to barracks and there was
no police interference, save occasionally
an armored car manned by

Catholic quarter and used expressions
like "come out Irish republi- j

"There was instances in which a
