unionists leaders to whom the people
are looking to find a way out of the
situation, which has become serious
because of the threatened revolution
of Ulster if the present bill ia passed,
and a still greater revolution involving
the rest of Ireland if home rule is

time are for a United Ireland. This
is a matter of sentiment just as much
as it is a matter of revenue. The
unionists, on the other hand, feel that
a temporary respite from home rule
would remove none of the objections
to the bill. Furthermore, they say to

On the government side the exclusion
of the Protestant counties presents un
told difficulties. In the first place the
whole home rule bill would have to be
recast and it is just possible that in
attempting to do this the government
might entirely wreck the work of the
last few years. Under the parliament
act which, by curtailing the veto pow
ei of the bouse of lords made home
rule possible in the first place, the
house of commons cannot amend a
bill after it has been once rejected by
the Lords. It can. however, r uke
si-ggestions to the upper house, which
the latter is at liberty to amend, re
ject or accept.
In this case it would be necessary
to amend the financial provisions of
the bill; for was Ulster excluded na
tionalist Ireland would require a big
ger grant from the imperial exchequer.
Now the house of lord has no con
trol over financial matters and should
it, on the suggestion of the house of
commons, amend the financial pro
visions of the bill, the que&tion might
be raised that it was a breach of priv
ilege. This. too. is only one of the
parliamentary tangles that might arise
should the settlement make it neces
sary to amend the bill drastically. Be
sides the governuiect. before the bill
was introduced, considered the ques
Uon of the exclusion of Ulster and
decided against it on these and other j
lines. Renew interest is being taken I

The Optimism of Saving
Notwithstanding the drouth which affected part
of the middle west last summer, it is said that a
feeling of optimism pervades that section largely be
cause the people there in the last ten years of re

for a time of stress in the fat years have prepar
