By EDWARD W. PICKARD.
Ireland occupied the center of the
world stupe last week, ami at this
writing It Is uncertain whether she
will 1.11I11 peine by accepting the Brit
ish poieri.ii.eiit's oiler of dominion
rule, or adopt the Irreconcilable atti
tude of lo Valera and the other Sinn
Fein leaders and thereby probably
bring upon herself a suicidal war with
I ; itii I Britain. In the closing days of
the week Pall Kirenmi. the Sinn Keiu
parliament, was in secret session lie
haling the momentous problem. There
was a sllpht chance that it would not
Indorse I e Valera' rejection of the
Lloyd Ceorpe offer, and another
chance t tint the plan would be sub
mitted to a plebiscite by whirl. I lie
people of southern Ireland might Iti
stru. t their lenders to accept the do
minion rule oil it.
It whs made evident that the Sinn
I'einers were trvlng to bring I'lster In
to accord Willi the South so that the
conversations with the British p.neru
I. i-ii t might be leneweil all. I possibly
a roiiiilrr oiler made to Lloyd Oei.rge.
The atiiinde hitherto assumed by Sir
.lames ('mill ami his colleagues did
not promise well for the success of
I hut effort. Indeed, I'lster has been
the sininbling block nil through the
nrgot ill! iol.s.
To tlie iiiiiireiudired liilnd the Brit
ish oiler Minis extremely liberal, giv

and iiileriial govei liineiit, and deii.ali.l
mg linle except lojiilty to the em
pire, control of the seas about Ireland
and nTUiin military and aviation
rights. It wus specitled. also, that
coon : ii should not be employed
against I'lster. and le Valera has de
clared southern Ireland can be brought
into an Irish dominion without th
use of force, lie meant by the use
of the commercial boycott and simi
lar measures, but tieneral Smuts U
conlidciit that time and experience
will bring about the sume result ami
cably. In addressing Pall Klreann, le
Vulern declared Lloyd ticorge had Hot
offered to Ireland the status of a do
minion govt riiiueiit, because no Ire
laud wus mentioned In the terms, only
two broken pieces of Ireland; and be
lli use dominions have the right to
recede, but Ireland must stay within
the empire whether or not it wishes
to do so. Said he: "Only on a basis
of our recognition as au Irish repub
lic will we deal with any nation or
foreign country whatever. The only
government the people of Ireland rec
ognize Is (he ministry of the lall
He bitterly scored the British gov
ernment, declaring it was practically
impossible to negotiate with It be
cuuse of Its "lack of principle," and
cited the many "Inconsistencies" of
Lloyd (ieorte; but the reservations In
his speech, expressed and Implied,
seemed to leave the way open for
Although Lloyd ticorge declared his
offer was the utmost the British gov
ernment could make. It Is Just possiblo
a wuy may tie found to satisfy tlie
Irish priM'Iple of Independence. Iub
lin correspondents call attention to
the fart that Knglaud already has
practically recogid.ed the existence of
the Irish republic tiy the drillings of
the premier with IV Valera mid In
iimiiy other minor particulars. There
fore, they hold. Pall Fircaun, Instead
of accepting Lloyd Ceorge's proposals,
I might offer the same terms to tireat
I Britain by a treaty as between tw
I free and independent nations.
I One thing U fairly certain: If the
British offer comes to naught and war-
I fure Is resu .1, the British govern-
I incut will start In whole heiirtedly to
"clean up the Kmerald Isle." and that

Kingdom now admit that the premier
has made a tdnrero effort to pacify
Ireland and right her wrongs, und if
be feels compelled to defend tlie gov

Ids eourise will be generally Justified.
Throughout the world the real friends
of Ireland who have been Hutching
her struggle with Interest and concern
will regret deeply the Irreconcilability
of her leaders. Alreudy the British
are preparing for a possible resump
