One of the delegates was the same

that at the meeting which preceded the
appointment of this delegation he had
heard read a letter from liamonn de
alern, "PtSSldsnt of the Irish Repub

a fair dominion home rule bill for Ire
land. When attention was called to the fact
that Mr. do Valcra had denied this and
had stated that the beat he would ac
cept would bu a measure having the
same purpose as the Piatt amendment
In the United States, It was reiterated
that Mr. de Valera had written a let

Whether the text of Mr. de Valera's
letter was presented at the meeting of
the Irish delegation witn the Cabinet at
10 Downing street to-day could not be
learned, but It was authoritatively de
clared that it was this letter which
prompted the sending of the delega
tion. Opposed to Coercion.

whereupon the delegates told the Pre
mier that they were confident that If the
Government adopted the policy they
urged It would find that n great body of

Government persist In its coercion bill,
they declared, this same Irish opinion
would condemn It -

In the lobby of the House of Com

fested In the call which the delegation
made on the Cabinet. It was declared
that the argument put forward by these
influential men was bound to have an
effect, especially ilnce many of them
have been opposed to home rule for
Ireland. It was declared that the Pre

home rule for Ireland as the onlv way
the Irish troubles could be settled, but
had not been able to convince all the
members of the Cabinet that this was
the best settlement.
Therefore. It was assreted, the ma

Into the world war. All of the Informa- I

The possibility of an extra session of 1
Congress to cope with the difficult ques- !
tlons that are bound to arise Is under
consideration. Senator King (Utah), an 1
Administration leader, stated specifically j
to-day that In his Judgment the Presl- j

conducted the .Administration's fight for
ratification of the League of Nations,
said the United States Is powerless to
act In Poland without the consent of
Congress beyond an expression of sym
pathy. Up to the present Urns the attitude of
thS United States has been chiefly one
of opposition to plans under considera
