ft ?&1 m L i IRE VIOLENCE I IF ENGLAND TRIED I TO PLACATE IRISH Lloyd George Believes Sugges tions of Peace Would Be Taken as Signs of Weakness. IjONTJON, May 30 (Associated Press). No. 10 Downing Street, the official residence of Prime Minister Uoyd George, lias been Inundated with requests for confirmation or denial of rcporU from Belfast that Eamonn Do Valcra. and Mr, Lloyd George had held a conference, but a definite yes or no to this query Is being with held. Those usually Informed of the Prime Minister's movements, how ever", have been unable' to verify his whereabouts during the week-end of May 21, which fact Is leading some to believe that a secret pence- con ference between tho Irish republican leader and tho British Prime. Min ister may have occurred then. Lloyd George announced In the Houso of Commons to-day that It was proposed to strengthen tho Crown forces In Ireland and that a statement would bo mado to Parlia ment on tho subject when tho ar rangements wcro completed, Tho Prime Minister, In thus con firming tho recent Informal stato mcnts that additional troops wero to bo sent to Irclanj, added that It was not Intended to send tho Reservists there. He made his announcement In answering a question from a mem ber. Replying to another question as to whether tho Government would adopt tho suggestion of colonial autonomy for North and South Ireland and havo the apportionment of the national debt submitted to Judicial arbitration, Mr. Lloyd George said that even If Parliament approved such proceeding, "I have reason to ibcliovo It would not be accepted iby the men responsi ble for tho vlolenco In Iroland, but, on tho contrary, would lo regarded by them as wcahncas on the part of the British Government and an encour agement to further violence." Tho Prlmo Mlnlstor said there could be no question of making good out of tlho British Exchequer the damage of the Dublin Custom Houso caused by tho recent Incendiary descent upon that building. "One of tho most precious posses sions of tho Irish people was wan tonly and deliberately destroyed by tho .Sinn Fclnors," he added. Tho Prlmo Minister said tho loss was estimated at '2,000,000 and that tho claim would be presented In duo course under the law tho loss would fall upon tho local authorities, but It -would bo within tho powers of the Southern Parliament to mako pro ' vision foT meeting tho loss, wholly or in part.

Miss Mildred Sinclair to Become Bride of Princeton Man Wednesday IH MM int w J iriir Young Couple Will Spend Three Months in Japan Be fore Settling in Larchmont. ' Miss Mildred Paulino Sinclair, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James C. Sinclair of No. 944 Park Avenue, and George H.

Mayor ITylan's ultimatum, Issued soma time ngo to department heads that they must economize or walk tho plank, bos thus far been Ignored by n number of his Commissioners who happen to bo Tammany leaders, cn tho ground that they havo nlrcady cut their clerical forces to tho limit. It was said at City Hall to-day that Tammany leaders who take this at titude believe they aro In n position to defy tho Mayor becauso of tho ap proaching election. If they rcmovo soma of tho so-called "dead-Wood," tho leaders argue, they will deprive their organization of patronago and election workers. When tho $27,000,000 shortage in the Department of Kducatlon funds was llrst announced, some moiitns ngo, Mayor Hylan' aMd Aldermanlc Presi dent La Uuardia said they would en deavor to have nearly every depart ment In tho city cut Its expenses ap proximately 7 per cent. It was be lieved that If this plan was carried out enough would be saved to meet thu Jltf.O'u.OOO deficit and that a sur plus would remain. Manhattan llorough President Cur ran stated several days ago that up to a quite recent date only $76,000 had 'been saved under tho Hylan-La (luardla plan, and that of this amount 150,000 had been saved In his depart ment alone. Curran declavod tho Hylan-La Ouar 01a plan had proved a falluro simply because, tho Mayor had not dared compel his Tuinmany Commissioners ut economize. To-day Aldermanlc lrc3lden La Quardla agrees wltlu "It Is tho cheapest and lowet kind of politics for Tammany leaders or Republicans holding Comnilssloncr shlps or other high olllccs to get rid of dead heads and slackers whose tit ter usolassneas spells financial ealam Ity for tho City of New York. "Mayor Hylan publicly announ?"d some months ago, when ho agreed to tho 7 per cent, cut In city expenses, thnt any Commissioner who didn't like his plan could turn In his renin- nation, Nono of tho CommlsNlonur has thus far resigned and. from wtmt I can learn, the cuts asked for by t'iu Mavor have not been made. "Any Commissioner, bu he Tarn 1 many leuder or otherwise, who cnnni'i scu his way clear to economize should be flred forthwith by tho Mayor.

I "This slacking on the part of city j employees, which Is practised by the old time political hacks, Is hlgHy 1 contagious and is spreading with alarming rapidity among tho younger generation of city employees.

'Just stopped out' Is tho usual answer a visitor to a city de partment receives when Inquiring for a city employee. This is tno usual 'cover-up' for the slacker. "Knlfco rumors have been spread to the effect that tho 7 per cent, cut In expenses suggested by mo means a cut In salaries. This Is an old politi cal trick, but It will not fool con scientious employee-"). I contend thnt It is possible to mako 7 per cent, reductions without cutting any sal ries. The reduction can bo effected In thrcp ways. First, flro tho slackers and don't replnco them, because they never did any work. Second, pension tho aged who aro simply Incapacitated through Infirmity.

L T FOR STOLEN BOY Varatta, Having Bought Auto, Kidnappers Tiioughf He Had $50,000. Tho fact that tho father of Oluseppo Varotta, tho five-year-old boy who was kidnapped from near his home, No. 354 Kast 13th Street, on Thursday last, had told neighbors and friends ho had purchased on au tomobllo Is believed by tho police to havo been tho reason tho child wai kidnapped.

Varotta to-day Bald that tho auto- mdblle he had bought was an old one for which "he hod paid $125, another workman paying "$125 also, and that he had bought It because ho wished to tako his Injured son out riding, as tho injuries to. his face had caused the boy to bo unsightly and he woo sensitive becauso of that and seldom got out. The note which was delivered to Varotta soon utter tho kidnapping demanding $2,500, told 'him to put the money in a box and to put In small bills. It warned him that if he reported to the police or to any one el so, he never would sco the child alive and never oven see Its body after deaUi. The noto was signed by a dagger and the "Black Hand," The social serlce workers of tho city, with sohool children of tho Church of Mary Help of Christians, and hundreds of volunteers are aid ing In the search to-day. The mem bers of the Italian squad at Head quarters aro also devoting their tlmo to the case, many of them having been assigned, to do nothing else. William A. W. Stewart, a lawyer, of No. 45 Wall Street, who Is Inter ested In tho ' misfortunes of tso Varotta family, has offered a reward of $500 for the return of tho boy or Information leading to his discovery. Ho knew tho father during the war at Camp Upton, when they were workers together. Mr. Stownrt said possibly the kid nappers, because of tho friends the father is known to havo made while a war worker at Camp Upton, ex pected them to provide tho ransom money. In confirming his offer of $500 reward, he said: "Somo tlmo ago Miss Anno Vlnco of tho Ilcllovuo end Allied Bureau of Social Service called to my attention wio dlsflguroment of the older boy, Adolph, who was badly burned In n truck collision in 1013.
