1TARTS RAID TO CLEAN
UP ULSTER AREA
4rthern Ireland Government Takes
Drastice Action to Prevent Mur
ders by Sinn Fein
MANY ESCAPE THE NET
Three Hundred or More Prisoners
Taken' by Special Constables in
Belfast May 23.-Three hutidred
or more prisoners were taken by
special constables in the various
counties of Ulster today. The pris
oners comprised for the most part
officers and men of the Irish Re
publican army, as well as members
of the Sinn Fein and other organi
zations opposed to the constituted
Although the Northern govern
ment had contemplated drastic ac
tion against the Sinn Fein,. it was
the assassination of W. J. Twaddell,
a member of the Northern Parlia
mont, that really decided the gov
ernment to act promptly. But at
the same time it reduced the num
ber of captives in the round up, as
many of the leading Republicans
left Belfast dreading reprisals, and
thus escaped the police net.
Prisoners to Be Interned
The prisoners will be interned,
but the place of their internment
%has not yet been decided.
Premier Craig in Parliament to
day declared that the recent se
rious disorders made it clear that
forcible action was necessary, con
sequently he had issued a new reg
ulation making membership in the
Irish Republican army an offense
in itself. The government had fur
ther decided to arrest a number of
persons under observation . because
it was impossible to allow such in
dividuals in Ulster to carry on a
conspiracy against authority. The
government would not hesitat' to
employ its full power to suppress
The premier emphasized that this
action was not due to panic, but
had been in mind for some weeks.
He evidently anticipated reprisals,
for he proceeded to speak of the
military which would be required if
there was any invasion of strength
against Ulster tonight.
Raid Carired Out
Belfast, May 23.-(By the Asso
ciated Press.)- The greatest raid
in the recent history of Ireland was
carired out early today when
swarms of police swept through Uls
ter and rounded up 200 Sinn Feiners,
the majority of whom were Irish Re
publican army officers.
The northern government's action
was taken, it was stated, in an ef
fort to suppress not only the Irish
Republican and the Irish Republi
can Brotherhood, but al other Sinn
Fein organizations in the six coun
The government's move follows
t owiftly upon Irish Republican army
raids and burning of buildings in
the counties of Down and Antrim
and the intensified hostilities in
Belfast recently culminating in the
murder yesterday of W. J. Twad
dell, member of the Ulster Parlia
Taken in Country Districts
Nearly every town and village in
Ulster was visited, but the bulk
of the prisoners was taken in the
country districts, from farm houses.
Comparatively few captures were
madec in Belfast andl most of 'the
Irish Repubilean army men liiving
in the Sinn Fein dlistricts of Bel
fast, anticipating action by the po
ice as a result of the Twvaddell
assassination had gone "o nthe run."
Trhe captures incl ude Caapal H-ealy

Council and~ prominen1t Sinni Fein
leader in that district; Thomas C.
Corrigan, accountant for the Fer

Sheridan, chiairmani of the recently
dlissolvedl Newry Boards of Guard
ians, and1 Eugene McGilligan, coun
ty couincillor, who was the Sinn
Fein candidate in North Derry at
the last general election.
The early estimates of the num
ber of prisoners taken ran as high
as 1,500, but these proved to be
greatly exaggerated, and officials
expressedl belief that up to this
noon the tota had not exceeded
200. In Belfast, particularly, the
number of Irish Republican army
