55 8 "HOME-RULE FIRST," INSISTS REDMOND Irish Leader Will Consider Con. ference After Bill It Passed. m m TAKES A SLAP AT ULSTER "There's No I'se Wasting Any More Words," He Declares. Special Cible Det p itch io Tea Sn London, Set. 31. John Redmond, th Irish Nationalist leader. In a speech yea tarda y at Cahlrclveen, County Kerry, Ireland, elaborated the brief atatement he made two week ago In regard to a con ference on the Irish question, when he aald the home rule bill would have to be paused lire"! and then It would be easy enough to confer on the details of Its administration. In hi speech yesterday Mr. Redmond mphaslsed hla refuaal to participate In any conference unless the principle of horn rule was recognised. Lord l,oreburn'a suggestion of. a con ference, Mr. Redmond aald. might have averted ( although he doufJted ,lt ) some nf the troubles they might have to face If It had been received In a spirit of reason, conciliation and frlendlinea. but It had been rejected with brutal Insolence by the only people for whom auch a con ference waa supposed to be needed. I haaee Criticise I later. The reception of Lord Loreburn'a sug gestion, said Mr. Redmond, n.ust have con vinced every one of the true character of the ao-called I'later opposition. It wa implacable and Irreconcilable and waa not I need on reason or argument. Its root naa the old spirit of ascendency. It was a brutal, arrogant determination to over ride the will of Parliament and of the country at any risk or at any coat. Mr. Redmond contended that the ex posure of the attitude of the opposition had rendered the paeaage of the home rule hill even more certain than hitherto. He suggeated that perhapa that waa Lord l.nreburn's Intention In reiterating the ocer, which he made to Sir Edward Carson In June, When he expressed In a speech his readiness to discus with the Ulster T'nlonlst leader every single provision of the bill, with an earnest desire to accom modate the detail to the needa and de mies 'of Sir Edward and his followers If Ihey would frankly accept the principle of -a local Parliament for Ireland with local powers subject to the supremacy of th Imperial Parliament. But, aald Mr. Redmond, the Nationalists were now told that they ought to agree to the confn ence without any conditions and allow the whole queatlon of the principles of home rule to be put again Into the melting pot. 'That." Mr. Redmond declared, "we oannot and will not do. Any home rule conference must of necessity be baaed upon the admission of an Irish Parliament with an Executive responsible to It. That la the starting point. After all that hag happened there Is really no use In wast ing any more words on the matter. Our ship la at the harbor's mouth, the glaas Is 'set fair and the orders are for 'full team ahead.' " Just as the meeting waa about to start part of the platform collapsed, throwing hundreds of persons, including Mrs. Red send, to the ground. Nobody was hurt. Carsoa elves Reply. The Daily Sxprtti telegraphed the gist of Mr. Redmond's speech to Sir Edward Carson, who replied as follow s : "Assuming Mr. Redmond offer to he a stated It merely amounts! to this, that we should accept the bill subject to dis cussion of the details. That la no offer at all. I should he quite willing to die cus any question of the extension of local government, private bill legialatlon or any measure for the Improvement of the exist ing government of Ireland, provided Ire land retains her position under the Im perial Parliament and Is governed by an Executive who will be responsible to It." NORTHCLIFFE ON HOME RULE. asllsh Joarnallat Base Sltaatloa la I'later la Very sertoaa. Chicaoo. Sept. 21. Lord Northcllffe, owner of many Important English Jour nals, regards the present tense situation In Ulster.- where the Ulsterltes on Satur day paraded a well equipped and well drilled army, as an Indication of their intention If the home rule bill becomes law. aa serious and he does not hesitate to admit as much, although he declines to comment upon the situation at any great length. "The fight between the people of the North of Ireland, of which Ulster Is the most Importsnt part, and the rest of Ireland, has been regarded with continued apathy by the English." he said, "but the situation undoubtedly la serious. Inas much aa the Ulster men have for more than twelve months been arming them selves with modern weapons, have been drilling steadily and have linked the whole country with elaborate wireleaa telegraph outfits in order that they may be free from the English Government' control of telegrsph wire. "They have raised large sums among themselves and are, I believe, receiving many contributions from Canada and Aus tralia. I don't know that they particularly object 1 1 home rule for the rest of Ireland. Their objection is to th application of the present home rule proposal -to themselves, I snd I little doubt that they will fight if necessary. The English Government I obviously afraid to arrest their leaders. Sir Edward Carson and others. It has been said by a member of the present Government that they have no Intention ot making these leaders Into martyrs. I do not know whether the other side would fight, bgt I do know that tor many months the North of Ireland people have been im porting arms, ammunition and officers. 'The question Is an Irish question, and English apathy is remarkable. The English are tired of the Irish question, , and it Is not possible to arouse very much feeling either way about It In England." Lord Northcllffe, touching the United States tariff bill, said: "It Is a good bill. A good many people In England are apprehensive lest the Americana by rea son of reduction of the tariff may be en abled to compete with Great Britain In markets which we have hitherto had to ourselves. Oo the other hand, there are English people who look forward to re duction of your tariff aa enabling lis to sell good here. "Against that is th fact that ths whole f our Industrial population is working overtime In supplying the markets ws have found all over the world.

ALMOST OF THE SAME AOS Hohenollern-Oiielpli Feud May Not Re Knded. According to Recent Reports. Special Cnble I'ripatcl, to Tas St IS. Visnna. Kept. !8. The betrothal is an nounced of Princess Olga, third daugh ter -of the Duke of Cumberland, and Bis ter of Prince Ernst, who married Princess Victoria Lulae. the Kaiaer'a daughter, and Prince Mnrlts of Hchaumburg-Llppe, elder brother of Prince Adolf, the head of that house. There is but four months difference in the sgea of the couple, the Prince having been born on March 11, 1884. and the Princess on July II of the same year. At the time of the wedding of Prince Ernst of Cumberland and Princess Vic toria Lulse It waa aald that the Countea Anne of Heeae. who really arranged that marriage, and in that way brought about what was thought to he an end to the feud between the (iuelphs and Hohen sollerna, had another scheme by which she hoped to cement the friendship of the two houses. .She was planning to secure the engagement of Prince Adal bert, the Kaiser third son, and Princess Olga of Cumberland, but to-days an nouncement ahows that she waa not suc cessful. Recent despatches from Berlin announce that Princess Victoria Lulse. bride uf Prince Ernst Augustus of Cumberland, is to go on a long trip with the Kalaerln. her mother, and that the Prince, her hus- f band, is to go on a protracted shooting trip In another direction. These Intimations that all I not har monious come Just as the marriage was being hailed as the ending of the Hohen-lollern-Guelph feud and' Indicate that after all the difficulties between the two families have not yet reached the happy termination which had been proclaimed. It was understood that with the supposed healing of the old wounds the Kaiser had promised to put the Prince and his wife on the throne of Brunswick provided the Prince would give up his claim to the Hanoverian throne. Now thsre appears to be a hiatus In the peace negotiations. The foundations of the quarrel are Inter woven in English and German history going back to the time of the Georges. By the terms of the act of settlement of 1701 Oeorge Louis, elector of Han over, became King George I. of England. From this time until the death of William IV. In UI7 Great Britain and Hanover were ruled by the same sovereigns Oeorge I. and George II. in fact pre ferred Hanover to England as a place of residence and spent much of their time there. Oeorge III., however, counted himself more of an Englishman than a Hanoverian. Hanover remained an outpost of Great Britain on the Continent until with the death of William IV. the Hanoverian law providing agalnat a woman becoming the sovereign operated agalnat Queen Vic toria and Ernst Augustus, Duke of Cum berland and fifth son of George III., suc ceeded to the throne of Hanover. With the success of Bismarck in his plans for the unification of Oermany with Prussia at its head George V., the new King of Hanover, forced to decide be tween Prussia and Austria, threw In the lot of his country with Austria. This was In 1111, st the time when she diet wa voting on the question of the mobilisation of a Federal army. Prussia Immediately asked King George to remain neutral dur ing the war; George refused and Prussia crossed her frontier and took possession or the capital. On September 20, lll, Prus sia formally annexed Hanover, making the former kingdom a province. The King under the terms of his sur render waa not to reside In Hanover. Many of his subjects remained loyal to him and efforts were made even after the Franco Prussian war had greatly Increased Prussia's power to keep alive his claim to tas throne through various sorts of propaganda. Upon George's death. In 1171. his son, Ernst Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, continued to press ths claim of his house to th Hanoverian throne and as a result of his refusal to become reconciled to Prussia th imperial Gov ernment would not allow him to take possession of th duchy of Brunswick, which he Inherited In 1114. Money matters hav contributed also to ths dispute. Upon hla leaving Hanover King George had agreed to accept some $1,010,000 In Prussian oonds as compen sation for th confiscation of hts estates. A year later Prussia took back thla offer and used ths money to fight th plans of ths Guelphs In various parts of Eu rope. It was not until lilt that Prussia relented and arranged to pay the Interest on ths fund to ths Duks of Cumberland Ths sldsst son of ths present Duke, Prince George William, was allied in an automobile accident on May 10, 1112.

This would reduce the distance made by Gulllaux by thirty miles. Brindejonc des Moullnala alleges that the documents sub mitted st the Aerial League were falsified, the letter "a" in the Mayor of Bracket's signature verifying Gulllaux' s arrival having been changed to an "o."

The Japan ese Consul yielded. There la general satisfaction here over the end of the trouble, aa the situation between the two countries wa becoming dangerously strained.

London, Sept. 21. The Pekln corre spondent of the Times says the Chines are delighted at the financial change, which Is regarded a opening the door to unrestrained foreign competition, and which Is likely to enable them to avoid nneroua conditions in regard to seourlty for loans and control of the expendi ture. Their hopes may be fulfilled, the correspondent says, but the obviously bankrupt condition of the Government may have a restraining effect on foreign financiers. C SETTLING ON LAND POLICY.
