It is a matter pf grave doubt whether there would ever have been an Eng lish Pale jn Ireland t all if the Irish could have . got together in. a united effort to keep it out some seven cenfuries ago.' ' ' It seems curious that in this age, and particu larly in this year, hailed- as that of the triumph of democracy and, one might presume free thought and individual tolerance that civil con flict could be imminent within a race unit over a matter of conscience. Yet it is no less true that it is a question of religion which today sets nojth -and south Ireland snarling at each other like Kil kenny cits at the mere mention of Home Rule ; tor llibernia.'";.uv' ' , ; In considering; Lloyd George's new policy one must not forget that Home Rule is already a. mat ter of English law, having been put there b the Asquith ministry, and suspended, officially because or the war, but more probably because it could neither have been enforced without a rebellion in : Ulster, nor repealed without a rebellion in Leinster and her sister provinces. .', ' j "' The Irish question therefore consists, metaphori cally, of Ireland squeezing John Bull between the N upper and the1 nether millstone, meanwhile crying to him: "Take jour hand off my throat 1 You are choking me!" ". vk i ' ' This is the Medicament which Asquith, with probably more, than!, a small measure of relief, . handed t. his .'nuceessor . and erstwhile' minister of war.." Jn' 111 probability, also, Lloyd George, in abruptly , promising any legislation upon which . Irish factions agreed ha less hopes of settling the question than he has of keeping Ireland occupied with something other than German intrigues and incipient rebellion; y . ' ' ' '.. Ireland has played a noble: v arv ijne, nerpic .ixisn Dngaae iiveq.up 10 me . highest traditions of the Celt in' the retreat, from Serbia. arid the Irish' regiments"" have distinguished , themselves on a hundred fields with that happy abandon of the face, which fights first, then sits up,' opens orieveye aodjnquirej the cause. But nevertheless 'ireliridlfas also been a drag. Her coasts, on more than one occasion have been suspected of harboring Teuton submarine stations, she has already supplied one bloody revolution in Dublin and is in a constant state of incipient rebel lion, England has not been able to apply the con scription law to Ireland, and feels that the sister isn't doing all of her bit, in consequence, but hasn't complained over that. It is logical to suppose that the British ministry would welcome any sug gestion which would permit it V5 take one eye off Ireland and turn square to the enemy. And it is also possible that Lloyd George, has hit upon the suggestion. . . t ';;... .1 ,,- ,.;.-. ,. , A recent commentator in the mainland press, wha seems to lean a bit towards the nationalist .summed up their feelings. as follows: Th Nationalist leader, John Redmond, stated that , . almost any concession weald be made to obtain Home Kule by consent. Would the Nationalists concede ' equal representation in a single house for Nationaliitt .and Unionist bodies irrespective : of numbers t To avoid the possibility of deadlock the first government might be a coalition one. Equal representation might ; be insnred by dual representation of each constitu ency in a single bouse under a differential franchise. , The Nationalists are generally Roman Catholics and : the Unionists Protestants. If in - each constituency . the Boman Catholics returned a member and the Pro tectants a member a house' with equal numbers of Nationalist and Unionist member would result. All minorities in Ulster and elsewhere would be effectively protected by representation. This has the disadvantage of making individual votes of unequal value, but. the great, advantage of doing away with the necessity Of a second house. It has the objection of dividing voters on religious lines, but the recommendation of preventing the ponilility of religious collision during elections, as the two de nominations would vote for separate candidates, ami preferably at separate polling booths. Of course it is neither in accordance with the spirit ef the age nor of old useant wont, but when the i,oriian(Kpoi ,ouid uot be untied and ine . oracie Ueilured that . cedented solution was the true one. In the War-Cleared Air IT. is good business among men and nations to make friends. Perhaps when this war is ended the mainland jingo Orientiphobes will realize that the United States owes a real debt, of.gratitude to our west ernmost ally, Japan, which cannot be properly re paid unjes jtbere, j a complete change of neigh borly sentiment ah'd regard Were it'hot' that this doughty race of warriors stands on guard at the Eastern gate, as England holds its western, America would have to build against the coming of a Teutonic invasion a bar rier of fortresses from Puget Sound to the Gulf of California.

When Experts Disagree IT is tOjbe expected that differences of opinion and disagreements as to methods will delay our national preparations at this important epoch of our history. That this should be true is the great weakness of a democracy wagmlfwar.'. However, . were the grave-questions of policy referred to a body composed pf iniiitary . men,, such as the general staff of tne army, we still could not hope to' obviate this fault. In illustration of . this point ine";vi'ews ojf twq major generals of ihe army. bottt xlwnom..nave.,aervca on tne gueravstan, Re- vfew, in an article entitled Our Defective, Militrv. System," Maj.-GenW. In-Carter, U; S. 'AjTttirt&,' writes of an outstanding policy of the war depart ment as follows: The grafting upon our-military system of the eifl- " , sena' training camps is excusable only as a meant of '' arousing public opinion as to our shortcomings.' ' They ' are of great value to those who participate in' them, but without some form of permanent military organ-1 nation, or enlistment, they constitute ' no . available military asset and will die a natural death as soon as " the enthusiasm Incident to the present world war . . conditions wears away. As is well known, the citizens' training camp idea originated in' Gen. Leonard Wood's depart ment, and the first camp was held at Plattsburg, under i his immediate command. General Wood has always championed these camps, and his arti cle in The Century, for May, may well be tajen as an answer to General Carter's criticism. General WooJ writes as follows, under the title "Platts burg and Citizenship." Plattsburg is simply a term, generic term, which applies to all camps where the PlatUburg spirit and the Plattsburg method of training prevail. The military training aims to prepare the man to dis charge his citizenship duty better in war, and to im press upon him the fact that he is one of the renponsi Lie unit of the nation. ' The Plattsburg camps were established in 1913. The second aeriea of camps were drawing to a close in August, 1914, when the present great war began. The establishment of these camps was in no way connected . with the war, although their growth has been stimu lated by it, a the war has enabled many of our people -to visualise the possibilities of the future, and has brought home to them a realization of the need of . a peace insurance in the form of national preparedness. But preparedness for military service was only one of tha thing aimed at at Plattsburg. A governing motive behind it was national service, citizenship re sponsibility, an appreciation of the basic principle of , democracy tbat band in hand with equality of privi lege anil opportunity goes equality or obligation. The above quotations show that military men have differences of opinion as well as members of congress; and it is quite conceivable that.WMe, matters" bf military policy placed in the hands of the general staff, disagreements as to methods- progress in much the same manner At the present time huge sums are being ex pended and authorized for training camps. The legislation just signed by the President authorizes selective drafts for military service of young men between the ages of twenty-one and thirty years. From the lists submitted of men who are to attend the training camps this year, it is seen that over are above the ae limit of the draft so ineligible for service under its While it is .undoubted that these older men will be benefitted by the training they will receive at these camps, and the quality ..f 'tlieir citizenship will be imprpved, it seems pertinent to inquire whether the country's ultimate salvation would not le much more hastened bv devoting the enenrv army officers and the resources of its training of the young men who are its battles.
