Sir John Maxwell Ordered to Take Charge of the Country Under Military Control More Troops Hurried From England. UPRISINGS ANNOUNCED IN WESTERN COUNTIES LONDON, April 27. The revolt in Ireland is spreading, especially in the western counties, Dublin is still largely in the hands of the revolu tionists, martial law has been proclaimed in all Ireland, Major General Sir John Maxwell left for Ireland to take control of the country under military law this afternoon and thousands of troops are being made ready for service in Ireland. All this was admitted by Premier Asquith in the House of Commons to-day. The Premier admitted further that the situation in Ireland is very serious. Military censorship prevails and while tlw Premier as serted that all possible latitude in tliu transmission of news will be al lowed it is no secret in official circles that important facts in relation to the Irish rebellion situation have been suppressed. It is plain that the military forces in Ireland were unable to cope with the uprising and that the reinforcements sent from England were unequal to the requirements. Premier Asquith said, In reply to a question, that he Ivlieved the additional soldiers now on the way to Ireland or to be sent as soon as they can be put al).ird transports will be able to put down the rebellion. Fighting continues in Dublin, according to otliciai reports, and it is quite possible that the rioting has been continuous since last Monday. Premier Asquith admitted that the revolutionists are still in possession of important public buildings in the Irish capital, despite his statement of yes terday that the post otlice and all other buildings which the rebels had Meed h d been retaken by the troops. Military authorities say that a force of revolutionists strong enough tn hold public buildings in Dublin four days in the face of attack by trained troops is an extremely dangerous factor. This circumstance alone the continued occupancy of public buildings by the rebels shows that the accounts sent out through otliciai sources have minimized the k'riousness of the situation. Sir i'Mward Carson, leader of tho'? Antl-Ilomn Rule faction In Ireland, and John Itidmoud, the Nationalist leader, nutted to-day in evpiesslng In 'lie House of ('ominous their abhor- reiici nf the uprising. Until pledged I heir support to the ( invernmeut. FIRST DUTY 18 TO STAMP OUT REBELLION, SAYS ASQUITH. Itcplylng to a question whether the (iovernineiit had been warned "f i dangerous giowth of sedition, Premier Asquith said In the House of Commons: "The first and paramount duty of tho (loverntnent Is to restore order and to stamp out rebellion with all possible vigor and promptitude. That we am doing. "Hehltul that there Is undoubtedly an obligation which rests upon the (loveiuiiieut of making n searching Investigation Into the causes of and the responsibility for these events, That obligation wo fully recognize and Intend to discharge."

Premier As. qulth entd that debute on the ques. Hon could only he mischievous. "Our ullle nlready have been made awaro by Hlr Udwnrrt Camon and Mr, Redmond," the Premier addtd.
