Britain' Ruler Says After Win
ning of tha War This Is One
of the Strongest Desires Na
tiorr Entertains
LONDON,' Ffhrnary 7 (Associated
Cross) -King fleorre, in an address
yesterday, touched on tha Irish ques
tion, expressing his hope that the Irish
nnvenflon might not be disbanded tin
il it had ftutad the solution of the
roll problem.
The British government. W said, was
sincerely In earnest in ita desire to find
smite middle ground niion which the
Irish factions might be united for the
self government of-Ireland. Next to
nrrying through to a successful con
Imion the great war in w-hieh the na
ion whs engaged, the first alnr of the
Uritish statesmen was to grant to Ire
and the home rule it had long desired.
One Obstacle Removed
The Irish convention has apparently
been unable to come to any decision as
o the form of government to be recom
mended for Ireland. Jt is now well
known that the convention was on the
point nf disbanding and confessing
omplete failure wheu the resignation
if Sir F, I ward Carson from the British
'obinrt took plnee and one of the main
obstacles to nn agreement was believed
o be removed.
Now, a recent despatch from Dublin
to the Times, states that the oonven
ion has again taken a disappointing
urn ' which the Times interprets as
meaning that th prospect of an agree
ment ia again remote.
Commenting on this, the Daily Chron
icle s.v.h:
New Obstacles Arise

the most formidable obstacle,

If this
all will
have it
in their power to bring the labors of

A despatch to the Daily News from
Dublin sayg that comment upon the
outlook there is a curious blend of pes
sialism anil optimism pessimism a to
he immediate and optimism as to the
ultimate issue. The writer refers to a
drawing together of the nationalists
