On Wednesday of this week the
Evenlna Post editor attacked the
ability of the present Fire depart
ment. charging the men with lnconv
netencv and that the collision at
Eighth and Walnut between the

by reckless and ignorant driving of
members of tha Fire department. As
was proven, ths street car ran Into
the hook and ladder while the latter
was crossing the street Intersection,
but aside from this the driver was
John Morris, a member of the depart
ment for fifteen years, and during
that tlms had been a reel driver,
engine driver and driver of the hook
and ladder (even during ths Grin-1
stead administration), ana oeiore
bis connection with the department
drove ft hack for a livelihood, which
should even convince the contrary
editor of ths Post that he was
competent driver. In regard to ths

department, as charged by the Even
Ins: Post, ths letters of praise re

HELPS IRISH CAUSE.
Before the opening of England's
Parliament last Monday T. P.
O'Connor, Irish statesman and mem
ber for Liverpool, declared that the
tremendous problem of foreign
policy confronting the Government
does not seriously diminish the
growing keenness and excitement
among British politicians with regard
to the terrific battle to begin in the
House of Commons. At present the
Liberal ranks are in better spirits
and greater cohesion than during
the closing days of the last session.
Sir Edward Carson's campaign with
the open threats of c'vil war and the
appeals by himself and by his
Bishops and clergymen to the bitter
est and most sectarian passion have
done the Liberal and Irish cause an
immense service and the Liberal
now demand that the Government
shall promptly declare that. If such
appeal do lead to an outbreak of
violence in Ulster, the Ministry will
be ready to meet it with an- over
whelming force and crush. It

That the manufacturers of this
country are busier than ever and
that we are enjoying an unprecedent

attested by the fact that the coal

Och, the loneliness, the wastefulness,
How empty la the scene

As I walk te Sklbbereen;

And the joys of land and sea,
My heart keeps achln', achln'
for the chllder far from me.
Och I I can not be contented,
I can not dry the tears
That fill my eyes when thlnktn'
Of the loneliness of years.

There are other mothers like me.
They are scattered o'er the Isle,
For the homes are scarce in Erin,
All the youth are in exile.
And all we have to comfort us
Are the letters that we read.
But the words of love from children
Set our achln' hearts to bleed.
We moan alone in our despair,
Our thought beyond the sea,
And the crushing weight o' sorrow
Keeps pressing heavily,
For we know the childer won't come
Their lives are spent for love.
That their mothers may have shelter
Until they're called above.
