Lloyd George Declares Government

"Acting on Own Responsibility?Sinn

(By laitfml SerHee.)
(Special Cable Diwpatffc.)
London, Aug. 16.?An attempt of
labor to dictate to the government |
would be a challenge and would be j
resisted by every means at the disposal
of the government.
Gen. Wrangel, the anti-Bolshevik
commander in South Russia, is proceeding
on his responsibility so far
as Great Britain is concerned.
No substantial body representing
Sinn Fein Ireland has offered itself
for a conference with the govern- .

the unforeseen should occur, I
* Premier David Lloyd George outlined
the attitude of the British
administration as in the above paragraphs.
His pronouncement on labor was
gTeeted with cheers.
Reqnenf Churchill l>i*mi?;.al.
J. R. Clynes, the Labor member,
speaking for labor, demanded of
the Premier that Winston Churchill,
secretary of war. be dismissed from
the Cabinet for his warlike attitude
toward Russia.
The Premier's pronouncement
relative to Gen. Wrangel definitely
places Great Britain apart from the
anti-Bolshevik movement the general
is leading.
"The government,'' be said, "had
made clear to Gen. Wrangel that if
he took military steps after a given
date he would be proceeding on his
own responsibility in so far as the
British government is concerned.
He has taken those steps."
The Premier's remark on Ireland
was made in'explanation of an announcement
of several weeks ago
that the government was willing to
k discuss the Irish question with the .
J representatives of any substantial j
part of Ireland.

government and talk it over, i.sl
taker, as strongly indicative that
Sinn Fein continues steadfast in the
position it has taken that Ireland
Is now a republic and will talk to
Great Britain only as a republic
and not as a part of the British empire.
Following the premiers speech.
Andrew Bonar Law moved that the
house rise until October 19 with the
premier empowered t?> summon It
at r.n earlhr uate in vent of emergency.
He declared that the policy
of the government on the Polish situation
remained unchanged and
hat ibe only contingency requiring
an earlier meeting would be the
offering of insincere peace terms by
Russia, threatening the independence
of Poland. "In that event."
he concluded. "the government
would take steps to defend Poland."

The formation of a reciprocal
agreement between the HamburgAmerican

American Ship and Commerce Corporation
of which Averill Harriman.
of New York, is head, was announced
by the Shipping Board yesterday.
This records the biggest deal in the
history of world shipping.
All trade routes, docks, terminals
and other facilities controlled by the
German company which practically
encircles the globe are placed at the
disposal of the American company.
It will make similar arrangements

vessels to the United
States. The trade routes controlled
by the Hamburg-American Company
were the most extensive in existence
before the war.

It was learned also that a working
arrangement about to be formulated
between the North German Lloyd
Steamship Line and the United States
Mail Steamship Company will give to
the American concern all the facilities

The Hamburg-American deal
makes W. Averill Harriman one of
the most powerful figures in the
shipping industry. In fact, his operations
in that line bid fair to rival
those of his father, the late E. H.
Harriman, in the railway world.
