Speaking of the ease of Ireland with relation to the British Empire a
prominent member of the British Peace Delegation has just said:
"It has become a chronic wound whose septic effects
are spreading to our whole system and through
its influence on America is beginning to poison oar
most vital foreign relations .... Unless it is
settled .... this empire must cease to exist.99
Lieut.-General Jan Christian Smuts,
London, July 18th, 1919.
XHE INJUSTICE now being meted out to Ireland outrages humanity.
The House of Representatives has spoken 216 votes to 41. The
Senate has gone on record 60 votes to 1. The American Federation of
Labor has stated its position.
The proposed League of Nations would have this Republic enter into
a virtual partnership with the Empire which holds Ireland, Egypt and India
by military force alone.
Such partnership would be un-American, it would be contrary to the
principles upon which this Republic was founded.
Such partnership would be unhealthy and unwholesome.
The United States Seriate sees the truth.
Let the Senators see that they have the support of the people.
