The Irish question Is always In

of the "Irish republic" Is here to raise
money mid Is greeted by enthusiastic
ciowds, Sir Edward Carson, the Irish
unionist lender, Is telling Ihe United
States to mind Its own business. In n
speccli at Belfast lie said :
"Heaven knows I want good feel
ing between America nnd tills country.
I believe the whole future of the
world probably depends upon the rela
tions between the I'liltcd States of
America nnd ourselves, but I inn not
fining to submit to this kind of a cam
paign, whether for friendship or any
"I seriously sny to America today,
you attend to our own affairs; we
will nttend to ours. You look nfter
your own questions at home; we will
look after ours. We will brook no
Interference In our own n (fairs by any
country, however powerful. It Is not
for that wo Miiged the great war of Independence which has Just been con
cluded. Whnt right hiiil an American mission to come to tills country come
hero In n breach of hospitality of one nation toward another to attempt to
stir up strife In mutters In which they were not concerned?
