Mrs. Juliet nubleo of No. 24? East
40th Stroet, wlfo of u'brokor and fin
ardent advocate of birth control, was
placed under arrest this afternoon In
Chief Inspector Lahoy's office. Her
arrest occurred during tho second
preliminary honrlng of the complaint
of Mrs. Margaret Sanger against Po.
llco Capt Dopohuo 'of tho West 47th
Street Station for arresting her for
addressing an audience In Town Hull
Hovoral weeks ago on tho subject ot
birth control.
Tho arrest, which wus made for
alleged violation of Section 1,141! of tho
Penal Codo prohibiting tho promulga
tion of reclpej for birth control or
advising whnro such reclpesvniay bo
obtained, occurred, according to tho
police, nt tho Instance of Assistant
Corporation Counsel Marvin Dolphin,

Mr. Dolphin denied having Insti
gated tho nrreat, but said later that
Mrs. Hublce had confessed violating
the section In question. Mrs. Rubleu
was taken first to the Ellzubctli
Street citation by Patrolman Thomas
F. Murphy, attached to Headquarters,
und afterward arraigned In Ccntro
Streot Court.
The hearing being conducted by
Inspector Lahey was for tho purpose
of determining whether there wero
grounds for 'Mrs. Sanger's charge
against Donohoo. Those who at
tended tho hearing to-day were, in
addition to Mrtt. Sanger, Robert McC.
March, her counsel; Mrs. Anna Ken
nedy, Mm. Mary Windsor, Mrs.
Frances Ackerman. Mrs. U I Dela-'
Held. Mrs. Krnest D. Adee, J. U Slee,

Mr. Dolphin, who has en office in
As in tho first instance, the hearing
was a private one and Mr. Sanger
was the first witness, hnr tmtlmony
not having been completed. Mrs.
Ilubleo was tho next on the stand,
And whon sho reached her narrative
ot getting to Town Hall on Nor. 13,
finding Mrs. Sanger under arrest and
the meeting being dispersed by the
police, M-. Dolphin went to the door
and called Patrolman Murphy Into
tho room.
Murphy was told to arrest Mrs.
Ilublee but he demurred, being finally
prevailed upon, it was aaid, by Mr.
Dolnhln. A short time after Mrs.
Ttubleo was taken away the meeting
came to an end and Mr. Dolphin was
asked by the reporters whether he had
ca,1BOd her arrest. He replied in the
wiira iss
hlB rej0indr was "Look It upl"
Then ho shut the door.
The terms, lt is said:
Concede from th beginning the
Sinn Fein's claim for-tho unity
of Ireland; '
Ulster rnuit be Included within
the scheme from the start, and
must remain Ip for six months.
Before the end of a year, Ulster
.is to be given the option to with-,
draw. '
If Ulster goes, there must be a
boundary commission to deter
mine the exact-area which le fair
ly entitled to go with her.
Under this plan if Ulster goes out
ho would preserve pnly her present
powers and not obtain tho nscal
freedom that would "be left with South
Tle Sinn Vein has neither accepted
nor rejected these proposals, but hns
promised to consider them finally to
morrow. The question of allegiance Is still
the crux ot tho situation, but efforts
urn being made to devise som form
ut declaring allegiance whlqh It l
hoped by the Government tht-Hlnh
Foli might accept.
Tho Sinn Fein's reluctance to ac
cept the Government's plan to druft
the terms offered In treuty form anr
place tho treaty before tho House of
CommonH, as advanced curly thlo
week, has been caused, It was ex
plained to-dny. by tho gcnernl belief
that the negotiations must end if '
that plan were followed. It had been
suggested this treaty should embody
an All-Iroland Parliament but give
Northeast Ulster, as defined by a
boundary commission, tho right to
withdraw at a stipulated time.
The Sinn Fein delegates who are
ttlll In London Indicated llttlo hopt-
to-day that tho new version of the
plan would bo accepted, but so far
fio ono among them has declared for
absolute rejection or has cared to
make a prediction as to what would

Arthur Griffith and -George Gavan
Duffy ot the Sinn Fein delegation left
for Dublin this morning, und Michael
Collins and Eamon J. Duggan will go
to-night. Mr. Griffith will return.
Sunday morning, probably with thu
dollnlte decision of the Dall Cabinet,
which will be communicated to Prime
Minister Lloyd Oeorgo at the earliest
possible moment.
The Government's latest proposals
wero the result of meetings ot tho
Cabinet members which lasted tho
greater part of yesterday and were
continued through the evening and
until after midnight, the written ver
sion reaching Mr. Griffith at 1.S0
o'clock this morning. During the
Cabinet dlscusslons,"Mr. Griffith and
his colleagues wero consulted.
As first presented, tho terms wero
utterly unsatisfactory to the Sinn
Fein, but after some of the Sinn Fein
suggestions had been adopted the
plan reached such a stage that the
delegates thought lt &ad assumed a
form which would make .it- worth
while presenting to the Dall Cabinet '
for consultation.

acceptance, it sucti bo forthcoming.
In t heevent ot total rejection on tho
part of the Dall, the terras will only
