BRITISH YIELD POINT ON
ERIN; M SECESSION
Six Original Conditions Are Re
ported Reduced to Lone Bar
To Bolting Empire '
London, Sept. 8. The British
Cabinet has Invited Eamonn de
Valera, Irish Republican leader, to
send delegates to a conference with
the Cabinet Ministers at Inverness
September 20, according to the
Daily Mall's Inverness correspond
ent, who adds:. t
"Only one condition is imposed
namely, the understanding that Ire
land must remain within the em
pire." The communication to Mr. de Val
era, according to this dispatch, asks
for an early reply and points out
the apparent uselessness of conduct
' ing negotiations by a further ex
change of notes.
I In order to allay any fears re
' garding Ulster the decision that
'Northern Ireland must not in any
' circumstances be coerced was re
affirmed y the Ministers. .
Dealing with the Cabinet meet
ing the Dally Mail says:
"The Premier told the Ministers
that he regarded the situation as
grave' and critical and he was con
vinced that a further interchange of
notes was useless.
Plebiscite Plan Hoea
"One Minister, who had been In
personal contact with Sinn Fein
opinion, said he was Informed that
it was the real Intention of Its lead
ers to secure -a plebiscite of the
Irish people- after , a further ex
change of notes and to insure that
such plebiscite resulted in a man
date for a conference.
. "After the conflicting interpreta
tions placed In Ireland and England
on the latest Sinn Fein note were
teferred to the Premier, he said ,t
was necessary to impose a time lim
it, and ascertain beyond doubt
whether the Sinn Fein was prepared
to remain within the Empire. if
so, a permanent settlement aws un
il'jiifotedly possIMe. It not, further
negotiations were useless. The
Cabinet, therefore, should make an
other effort to secure an agreement
on this point, with all the blessings
of peace to follow." m
Thereupon the Ministers quickly
made up "their minds and 'the deci
sion and invitation conveyed in the
reply were unanimous.

Bellamy, Ala., Sept. 8. Alabama
is talking today about a most un
usual wedding. The minister who
started to tie the knot was In an
airplane which crashed Into a tree;
a blast from a siren at a lumber
plant announced the arrival, of the
wedding party at the alter; a thou
sand wedding guests were seated at
a table in a frame church built for
the ceremony, and the table was so
long that those seated at one end
could not hear speakers at the other.
Those who didn't dance were enter
tained by motion pictures. '
Miss Kathryn Allison, daughter of
the president of the Allison Lumber
Company, was the bride, and Allen
Crubbs of Eutaw was the groom.
The Rev. Henry M. Edmonds of
Birmingham started out to fly to
the ceremony, but after the accident
found himself unable to reach Bell
amy In time. Frank Willis Barnett,
representing tbe Birmingham Age-
