LONDON, Sept 14.?No move of the
British ?government in recent years has
?roused the feelings of the people
throughout Ireland to such a pitch as
hM the present intention, official an
aoancement of which is expected im?
mediately, to enroll and arm "well disr
posed citizens to assist the authori?
ties." The Ulster Volunteers, in other
words, are to be armed.
The feeling in Ulster among Union?
ists is one of exultation and among
Catholics of profound alarm. In the
southwest of Ireland there is the bit?
terest resentment. England's drastic
step occasic.s ?o little apprehension.
"Sir Edward Carson has triumphed,"
says the Evening Star.
Sir Horace Plunkett, speaking for
moderate opinion in Ireland, charac?
terises the creation of the new armed
force as "a deadly blow to hopes for
irish peace based upon Irish unity."
Deliberate Provocation Seen
Liberal opinion in both countries
tees in the step a deliberate act of
provocation. Coming on the heels of
the report that British officers' wives
have been ordered home and the al?
leged discovery of a Cabinet plan to
stamp out Republicanism, the impend-1
ing "appeal to loyal citizens to come ?
forward and assist in the maintenance j
of order" leads to fears that there will '
There is Terence MacSwiney, Lord ?
Mayor of Cork, recognized as a martyr i
in South and West Ireland, lying at the j
point of death in Brixton Prison. To- j
4ny, the thirty-third of his hunger ?
strike, he ?3 reported to be "very much
worse and prostrate." The Sinn Fein
have planned to prevent an outbreak
in the event of his death. Now faced
with the prospect that their enemies in
the north will be supplied with guns
sind ammunition, "for the maintenance
of order," the Sinn F?iners might find
in the death of the Lord Mayor the
'spark to kindle a revolt.
"Are the Government Mad?"
Charges that this is .vhat4he govern?
ment hopes were freely made to-day.
The conviction that McSwiney's death
*ou!d not lead to an outbreak led them,
it is said, to inaugur?t?; fresh provoca- ;
tion at a critical moment.
The Belfast Irish News, commenting i
to-day on the latest step, says: "Are
the government <<\d? Not politically, i
They have set themselves to the task of
destroying the Irish nation. Apparent?
ly, the beginning of the end has ar- j
rived for a half a million Catholics in
Those who fail to find great* cause
for alarm in the proposed move sec
in it an indication of the government's
intention to persist in its partition
The appointment of a special under?
secretary for Ulster, probably Sir
James Craig. formerly Carson's right
hand man, ?ends weight to this belief.
The government, of course, has never j
indicated any intention of desisting I
from the enactment of the present i
Home Rule bill, but it has occasioned j
so much objection in North and South
Ireland that it was believed it would
never become effective. Craig is the
man principally responsible for the
new move for force. The proposal to
arm the Ulster Volunteers came from
Belfast after the sectarian troubles
?*r!y this month. ?
Oil on Flames of Strife
The Irish Times, n Unionist paper,
says: "The government could not have !
chosen a more untimely moment for
throwing oil into the flames of Irish j
strife. The decision to recognize the ?
Ulster Volunteers leads to grave mis- j
livings among ail peace loving Irish- j
men lest it set the stage for the trag- j
edy of civil war. It may drown the last I
hopes for a settlement in a sea of j
blood. We must look for a settlement |
to IriMh reason, not rifles.

Serious Anti-Red Riots in Petrograd;
Six Commissioners Drowned ii? Neva
LONDON, Sept. 14.?Serious anti-Bolshevik rioting is taking place
in Petrograd, it is declare*, in reports from that city received in Berlin,
says a dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph Company from the German
capital, filed yesterday.
Six of the Bolshevik commissioners, !t !s asserted in these advices,
have been drowned in the Neva, while the others have been compelled
to seek places of safety.
PARIS, Sept. 14.?Riots took place in Petrograd when news of
the Soviet military defeats reached there, according to a report which
the French Foreign Ministry has received through Copenhagen. The
rioting, the report declared, assumed the proportions of a counter reso?
lution, and many of the commissioners were killed.
At the Foreign Office it was said credit was given the Copenhagen
dispatch, except, for one portion of it which declared the Soviet fleet
had mutinied and fired on Kronstadt.
Of Free Fiume
France and Britein Agree
That City Shall Become
a Part of Italy; Pact of
London To Be Enforced
Rome's Diplomacy Wins
Giolitti la Now Prepared to
Compel Jugo-Slavia to
Submit to His Program
By Ralph Courtney
Special Cable to The Tribune
Copyright. 1920, New York Tribune Inc.
AIX-LES-BAINS, Sept. 14. ? Presi?
dent Wilson'3 plan for the settlement
of the Adriatic question has been
scrapped. Instead of the Wilsonian
dream of a free city of Fiume under
the League of Natrons, the strategic
port will become a part of Italy, in
accordance with the plana of Gabriele
This was apparent to-day. in the light
of the official announcement made at
ihe conclusion of the conference be?
tween Premiers Millerand of France
and Giolitti of Italy. The Italian gov?
ernment has accepted the free state of
Fiume under d'Annunzio as part of its
official policy. Giolitti, at Lucerne, ob?
tained the acquiescence of Premier
Lloyd George in his plans. At Aix-les
I.ains, he offered to support certain |
parte: of the French policy in exchange |
for Millerand's consent to scrapping
the Adriatic policy of President Wil?
son and the French Premier's promise
not to interfere with the occupation
of Fiume by d'Annunzio.
Fiume an Italian City
That the d'Annunzian constitution
makes Fiume into what for all intents
and purposes is an Italian city is gen
erally agreed. The Temps, in a recent
leading editorial, shows France is
under no illusions about d'Annunzio's
constitution. It pointed out that under |
"King d'Annunzio's poetic extrava?
gances are carefully worded clauses
which nowise prevent d'Annunzio an?
nexing Fiume to Italy."
The official announcement, made at
the conclusion . of the conference of
the French and Italian premiers, is
that the settlement of the Adriatic
question ?hall be left to direct nego?
tiations between Italy and Jugo?
Armed with promises from France
and England that they will not inter?
fere in the Adriatic, Italy can ap?
proach the Jugo-Slavs wfth all the
trumps in her hand. She will demand
the enforcement of the pact of Lon?
don, which, together with the actual
possession of Fiume by d'Annunzio,
will permit her to compel Jugo-Slav
cooperation on terms advantageous to
Italy. The Jugo-Slavs, it is under?
stood, are prepared to bow to the
inevitable, and interviews between
Premier Trumbitch, of Jugo-Slavia,
and the Italians, will aoon be resumed.
France may not openly recognize the
independence of Fiume, as proclaimed
by d'Annunzio, but her agreement to
offer no opposition ultimately will
lead to such recognition. Italy will
piece together Millerand's consent for
a d'Annunzian agency and Lloyd
George's acquiescence to the sama
Mild Terms for Jugo-Slavs
Italy will not be harsh in the terms
she is to offer Jugo-Slavia. First,
Italy knows that neither France nor
England could, despite official promises,
uphold Italy in an- unjuit settlement.
Italy also has no reason to be un?
friendly to the Jugo-Slavs when they
no longer stand between her and her
possession of Fiume and the territory
accorded her in the pact of London.
Thus France and Italy added one
other understanding to the great and
growing number of secret European
arrangements made since the Ver?
sailles treaty, and Italy at last obtains
what President Wilson did his best to
prevent. Mr. Wilson sent former Pre?
mier Orlando home from the peace con?
ference, but his successor, Giolitti, has
come back and carried out his program.
The patient, skillful fending of Italian
diplomacy has used all circumstances,
including d'Annunzio's escapade, to ob?
tain its ends.

HARTFORD, Conn., Sept. 14.?By
votes of 216 to 11 in the House and 33
to 0 in the Senate the Connecticut Leg?
islature this afternoon ratified the Fed?
eral suffrage amendment. This action
was taken in disregard of Governor
Holcomb's instructions that the Legis?
lature should confine itself to chang?
ing the state laws for new women vot?
ers, as stated in his convening procla?
mation. The Governor warned that
legal complications might ensue if the
legislators did not wait for the second
special session, which he called at noon
to meet next Tuesday.
After the vot? on suffrage the As?

passed appropriating $350,000 for new
dormitories at the Connecticut Agri?
cultural College and making World
War veterans eligible for admission to
the Old S?jdiers' Home at Noroton.
This afternoon the Judiciary Com?
mittee held an extended hearing on
bills changing the inadequate period
for registering new voters, abolishing
the plan of "lists of voters to be
made," making Election Day a legal
holiday and substituting the old Aus?
tralian ballot system if enough new
voting machines cannot be obtained in

Nation's Duty to
Defends Stand on Tariff
and Replies to Charge of
From a Staff Correspondent
MARION, Ohio, Sept. 14.?America
must put up tight immigration bars
against unassimilable aliens, Senator
Warren G. Harding declared to-day in
a front porch speech to a delegation
of Californians who came here seek?
ing the Republican candidate's views on
the Japanese question.
Giving an interpretation of his
watchword, "America first," Senator
Harding made what is believed to be
the strongest utterance against further
Japanese immfgration that has come
from any public man in a place of in?
fluence since the Presidency of Theo?
The cheers with which the speech
was received by the visitors, led by
Governor William D. Stephens, a polit?
ical follower of Senator Hiram John?
son, indicated that Senator Harding
had given the right answer, from a
California viewpoint, to the Oriental
question. Yet h?3 remarks were
phrased with such careful considera?
tion for the national honor of the
Japanese that the speech is not likely
to further irritate the people of Nippon.
Uses Term "Orientals" '
Senator Harding did not use the
?word "Japan" or "Japanese," but left ;
no doubt as to who was meant by I
First, friction between the people of |
Pacific Coast states and the Oriental I
immigrants must be recognized, Sena- I
tor Harding said. The United States
must stand behind the coast states
with measures that will relieve their
Moreover, the World War taught us,
he said, that the citizenship of this Re?
public must be made American in
heart, soul, sympathy and aspiration
finally. The United States has the
moral, natural and legal international
right to determine who shall or shall
not enter the country. Then, in setting
forth his policy, Senator Harding said:
"With a new realization of the
necessity of developing a soul dis?
tinctly American in this republic, we
favor such modifications of our immi- |
gration laws and such changes in our;
international understandings, and such j
a policy relating to those who come;
among us, as will guarantee to the j
citizens of this republic not only as-1
similability of alien born, but the I
adoption by all who come of Ameri?
can standards, economy and otherwise,
and a full consecration to American j
practices and ideals."
The reference to a change in our in-1
ternationa! understandings is believed
here to indicate a willingness on Sena-,
tor Harding's part to T egotiatc, if|
elected, a more effective bar against j
Oriental immigration than tho "gen?
tlemen's agreement" with Japan.
Othei'3 besides the people of the
Pacific coast states are expected to
read Senator Harding's speech with
appreciation. His declaration against
unfiltered immigration is expected to |
meet with the hearty approval of all i
Citizenship Put First
"From this time on," Senator Hard-j
ing said, "we are more concerned with
the making of citizens than wc are
with adding to the man power of in?
dustry or the additional human units
in our varied activities."
Elsewhere he said: "No one can tran?
quilly contemplate the future of this
republic without anxiety for abun?
dant provision for admission to our
shores of only the immigrant who can
be assimilated and thoroughly imbued
with the American spirit."
There were about forty in the Cali?
fornia delegation. They arrived last!
night and then Governor Stephens had
a long conference with Senator Hard?
ing about the latter's speech. Senator
Harding then worked on his speech
until after midnight. Besides Gover?
nor Stephens the delegation included
William H. Crocker, a banker; John H.
Rossiter, owner of ranches and oil
wells, and M. F. Tarpcy, who was the
Democratic national committeeman in
1908. The League of Nations issue
caused Mr. Tarpey to offer his fealty
to Senator Harding.
In his introductory remarks Gover?
nor Stephens said that the delegation
had come to assure the candidate of the
full faith and confidence in his leader?
ship of all California Republicans. He
referred to the recent visit to Cali?
fornia of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the
Democratic Vice-Presidential candi?
date, and quoted him as saying that the
tariff as an issue in the campaign is a

in Brooklyn gave Justice Aspinall,
1.805. There was only one higher vote
than his at that time, that for County

The vote polled in both judiciary
districts was light. Returns at mid?

were indorsed by both parties, re?

who were indorsed by the Republicans.

went through with a large vote ahead
