WASHINGTON*, Fob. 28.?Secretary
Tumulty Issued a statement at tho
White House today, denying: formally,
on behalf of President Wilson, that the
President told members of the c?n
1 grcssional Foreign Affairs Committees
i Wednesday night that the Irish ques
tion was a matter between Ireland
nnr) Hnttlnnd. and that Ireland would
' have no voice in th? peace conference
I at present.
! A statement to this effect, made by
! at least one of the committeemen after
i the White House conference, was char
acterized :is a "deliberate falsehood."
What Tumulty specifically denied was
| the following:
"The President told the committees
j that the Irish question was a matter
between Ireland and England, and that
j Ireland could not have any voice in the
peace conference at present."
The denial follows:
"In the last few days tho following
quotation has appeared In the press
: under a Washington date line, as part
of the report of the dinner given by
the President at the White House Wed
| ncsday evening, February 26, to the
, members of the Committee on Foreign
' Relations of the Senate, and the Com
, mittee on Foreign Affairs of the
J House:
"'The President told the committees
i that the Irish question was a matter
I between Ireland and England, and that
Ireland would not have any voice it;
the peace conference at present."

"The President wishes me to say that
I this statement has no foundation In

I Several members of the committees
said after the conference that Presi
dent Wilson, when pressed about the
1 Irish question, had made a statement
! to the same general effect as the one
I now denied The subject came up on
the floor of the Senate today, when
\ Senator Hitchcock, of Nebraska, chalr
I man of the Foreign Relations Commi;
I tee, was attacking a report of the con
I ferencc published In the Now York
j Sun.
I In denying tho Sun's report Mr.
Hitchcock said the President was ques

Senator Willlnms, of Mississippi, who

; the league of nations bad nothing to

"Does the Senator mean to Infer ths*t
j the league has nothing to do with it.

in a while, and Black-Draught is
good enough tor me. It does the I
work well and cleans the liver, car-'
rying nway bile, the easiest of any j
purgative I have ever seen.
Once, sonic years ago. 1 had slow 1
fever and my stomach was in a bad
fix, and Black-Draught gavo me re- j
lief and helped me a wonderful j
sight. It curcd me of indigestion,
and the bad feeling after eating. I
keep it for my family; they use it,
and have for years, and. too, it sares
doctor hills and is not expensive.
A stitch in time saves nine, and
most sickness is caused by a bad
liver. A few doses of Black-Draught
lixes that, and 1 don't sec why peo
i pie don't use it, and they would see,
as 1 have, what a help it would be."
