WILL VOTE TONIGHT
ON HOI RULE BILL
British House of Commons
Ncaring Decision on Ques
tion Affecting Ireland.
JOHN REDMOND SPEAKS
FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION;
Leader of Nationalists Believes Coun- <
try Tires of Debate?Cheered
by Ministerial Side.
LONDON. April <>.?"I think in the pres
ent. circumstances then- is nothing for
the house of commons to do hut pro
ceed with the home rule for Ireland bill
as it stands."
This was the 'losing sentence of a
s,?eech delivered today ;r. the house of
commons by John K. Redmond, leader of
the Irish nationalists, who made the final
speech on behalf of the nationalist party
?">n the second reading of the home rule
bill. The vote of the house on the meas
ure was arranged to be taken tonight.
The day's proceedings in the house
were opened by Mr. Redmond, who plead
ed that the present stag- of the contro
versy was so critical that all energies
must bo devoted to facing a settlement
??f tiie realities. He continued:
The country as a whole Js sick and
t ied of the Irish question, and it must
be settled here and now."
Position of the Nationalists.
Kiiiphasizing that, it was impossible for ;
lie Irish nationalists, by agreeing to the j
Permanent exclusion of Ulster from the ;
operation of the home rule bill, to aban- j
don the principle of "Ireland a nation,'
Mr. Redmond added: "The real question
of the moment is how far each side is j
prepared to advance toward an agree- i
ment."
The nationalists. Mr. Redmond said.
would have been glad to accept the
scheme proposed by Sir Horace Plunkett
? n February, by which a plebiscite would
b< taken after a certain number of years .
(T-i the question whether any section of (
Ulster desired to continue subject to the |
Irish parliament.
Mr. Redmond said he was in sympathy ?;
with the general proposal of a. scheme of i
federation, but vague talk on the sub- ?
jeet. he declared, was mischievous and j
could not solve the present difficulty.
Cheers Greet Closing Sentences.
Amid great cheering on the ministerial
side of the house Mr. Redmond summed j
up his view of the situation, saying that ;
although he would not do or say any- !
thing to preclude the possibility of a fair
and honorable peace he thought there >
was nothing else to do at present than i
proceed with the bill :r. its present form, j

Unc" Billy Possum Wishes He
Had Stayed at Home.
Whatever possessed Unc* Billy Possum
to go wandering off way. way into the
deepest part of the Green Forest he did
not know himself. He just went, that
was all. Perhaps it was something in the
air that made him. Tt seemed as if ev
erybody was doing a great deal of wan
dering about these beautiful early spring
days. It's a way the little meadow and
forest people have in the glad spring
time. So you will meet them in the most
unexpected places, very busy doing noth
ing at ail but looking around.
So Unc' Billy Possum wandered along,
poking ove- sticks and piles of leaves,
peering with his shrewd, sharp little eyes
into every hollow log and stump, and
watching for signs of nest builders, for
you know Unc' Billy has a weakness for
fresh eggs. He just can't pass a fresh J
egg.^r.o matter whom it belongs to. He al
ways excuses himself on the ground that j
whoever laid it can lay another, and so
no harm is done, which, of course, is no
excuse at all. But Unc' Billy seems to
think it is and whenever he goes out to j
tfalk in the spring he has his eyes open
for new homes of his feathered neigh
bors.
This particular morning he had come as
far as the pond of Paddy the Beaver be
fore he stopped to rest. There he sat
down on Paddy s dam to pass the time of t
day with Padcjy. who was swimming
about in his pond just as if he hadn't
anything else in particular to do. j
"How did yo' pass the winter . Br er |
Beaver?" asked Unc* Billy. - j
"Very comfortably, thank you. Unc' 1
Billy," replied Paddy, politely. I had
plenty to eat. a comfortable bed. and j
Plenty of time to sleep. What more could 1
I ask?**
Unc* Billy grinned- "Yo could have I
asked fo' warmer weather." said he. "Ah
done tho't Ah was going to freeze to
death. Ah done wish a good many times
that Ah was 'way down souf in ol' Vir
ginny. Ah don't like such a long, cold
winter."
"Did you rail that a long winter and a
hard winter?" exclaimed Paddy. "Pooh!
You ought to spend a winter up where I
came from. I don't believe that Mistress
Spring has reached there yet."
" Then Ah don* want to be any nearer
to it. than I npi this very minute!" de
"HOW DID YO PASS THE WINTER
BR'ER BBAVHR " ASKED UNC'
BILLY
clared Un? ' Billy. "By the way. Brer
Beaver, have yo' seen any strangers up
this way? Br er Jay and Br'er Crow done
go crazy in their haids. Ah guess, for all
they can talk about is a big black
stranger, who stands on two legs and
walks on .four legs, and is as big as Farm
er Brown's boy. They say they saw him
somewhere up around here. Have yo' "
Unc' Billy didn't finish what he had
started to ask. He didn't finisii, because
the snapping of a stick behind him made
him turn his head. There stood the
stranger in black, as big as Farmer
Brown's boy. standing on two legs and
with the awfulest big claws Unc* Billy
ever had seen! It was all just as Sammy
Jay had said. ?Unc' Billy gave a fright
ened little gasp and shut his eyes tight
for Just a wee little minute, hoping that
when he opened them again he would find
that he was mistaken and that there was
no great black stranger there after all.
But when Unc* Billy opened his eyes he
found that they had not been playing him
tricks. The stranger was there.* Worse
still, he was-coming straight over toward
Unc' Billy, grinning in the most friendly
way.
Bui Unc* Billy didn't notice that that
grin was a friendly grin. All he noticed
were the great big teeth that showed. He
took just one look, and then he started
across Paddy's darn as fast as he could,
which wasn't very fast, because he was
afraid of falling fn. He didn't once look
behind, and as he scrambled along he
kept saying over and over:
"Ah wish Ah done stay at home! Ah
wish Ah done stay at home!"

.
President Approves Selections
Made by the Committee
on Organization.
I Although stating specifically that the
; selection, o'" the twelve regional reserve
j cities had been none of his business ami
1 that he had refrained from making any
j suggestions. President Wilson today gave
! his unqualified approval to the choices
j announced by the. organization committee
j of the federal reserve board.
? The President said he knew the organ
! ization committer had fairly considered
; the facts upon which their choices were
I' based, and he knew they acted upon their
study of the actual conditions of financial
exchange and lending.
The President added that from the
, statistics he had seen, he believed the
, organization of the twelve banks would
? make a solid structure.
j Mr. Wilson still is considering eligibles
i for the federal reserve board, but has
made no selection or offers.
President Wilson today enunciated the
principle that is guiding him in the se
lection of public servants, expressing the
view that he did nor believe in c hoosing
men who would decide questions in a cer
tain way. but those whom he knew to be
just and fair.
Hard to Get Justice.
The President remarked that, to him, it
seemed justice was the hardest thing in
i the world to obtain, and that it required
! more courage and conscience than any
| other one thing.
Mr. Wilson was discussing his appoint
ment of Prof. Winthrop M. Daniels to the
interstate commerce commission. The
j confirmation was obtained only after a
i vigorous Senate contest. 'The President
1 referred to Mr. Daniels as a just and en
lightened man. whom he had known in
timately for twenty-five years anu whom
he considered as a man of unusual ability.
Mr. Daniels arrived here today and was
sworn in as a member of the commission.
Dudley Field Malone. collector for the
port of New York, had a brief talk with
President Wilson today about New York
j politics. He said afterward that lie had
not discussed anything of importance to
J day. but had arranged for a conference
1 Wednesdav.
Protest From New Orleans.
| Secretary McAdoo today received a teie
, gram containing the gist of the resolution
; adopted by citizens of New Orleans at a
' mass meeting Saturday protesting against
the plans for districting the country and
: placing federal reserve banks, recently
i announced by the reserve bank organiza
' tion committee, of which Mr. McAdoo is
! chairman.
The New Orleans protest predicts dis
aster from the committee's action.
"Comment is unnecessary." said Mr.
McAdoo. "The telegram tells its own
story." The full text of the resolution
adopted at the New Orleans meeting had
j not reached the Treasury today, but it is
not probable that its arrival will be fol
lowed by any action on the part of the
! committee.
MGR. (m ELEVATED
Auditor of Papal Legation Named by
Pope for New Austra
lian Post.
ROME. Italy, April 6.?The Pope today
created an apostolic delegation in Aus
tralia and appointed as delegate the Rev.
Mgr. Bonaventure Cerretti. now auditor
of the apostolic delegation in the I'nited
States.
i In speaking of the appointment this aft
ernoon Mgr. Cerretti declared that he has
not made any arrangements for leaving
for Australia, but is awaiting orders from
Rome before proceeding to his new post.
As there is no papal legation in Aus
tralia. Mgr. Cerretti does not know at the
present time where it will be located, but
intimated, in the course of his conversa
tion, that it will be either in Melbourne,
Victoria, or Sydney in New South Wales.
Before coming to Washington Mgr. Cer
retti was auditor of the papal legation in
Mexico City, and as a reward for adminis
trative ability shown there, it is declared,
was transferred to the new legation here,
which was then in charge of Mgr. Dio
mede Falconio, now Cardinal Falconio.
During his eight years in Washington
he has Taken part in many religious cere
monies of the churches of his denomina
tion where high dlgnataries of the church
were in attendance.

We wish that he could be marooned and

voice both sweet and strong. And through
the melody there blends the choruses of
far-off friends, or. maybe just one voice

FAVORS ORGANIZATION
OF COAL OPERATORS
John Mitchell Would Allow Them to
Agree on Prices. But With Fed
eral Supervision.
Organization of coal mine operators
in the United States so that they can
agree on. prices, but with federal su
pervision of any such arrangement, was
advocated by John Mitchell, formerly
president of the United Mine Workers
of America, before the United States
commission on industrial relations to
day.
Mr. Mitchell was the first witness. He
spoke for the employes, under the in- j
quiry on collective bargaining, con - 1
ciliating and arbitration.
John R. Commons of Wisconsin, pre
sided in the absence of Prank P. Walsh
' of Missouri, chairman of the commis
j sion. These hearings are being held in '
the Shoreham.
. Mr. Mitchell said he thought a. federal
industrial eommission, made up of ex
i perts on the subject, of the character
? of the interstate commerce commission,
might well be established to investigate
causes of threatened or pending industrial
strikes, provided it had no power of com*
pulsory arbitration.
Advocating organization of coal opera
tors. Mr. Mitchell said that 40 per cent
of all coal mined in the United States
- at present is wasted because the mine
I operators cannot dispose of it profitably.
Says Agreements Aid Men.
Mr. Mitchell spoke in favor of collective
bargaining, describing the agreements
made between the mine operators and
workers and saying that they have great
ly bettered the conditions of the men.
Education of the operators and workers
is greatly needed to increase their re
sponsibility. he added. He said that coal
mining should be put on an apprentice
ship basis, and that operators should stop
bringing in unskilled men. Americans
are leading the industry, he said.
"The coal miner is so much better off
today than he was in 1807 that there is
no basis of comparison." Mr. Mitchell
went on. "But I believe the miner should
be among the best paid workers in
America."
Other speakers at the coal meeting hear
ing were Frank J. Ha>es. vice president
of the United Mine Workers, for the em
ployes. and Frank Peabody of Chicago,
and S. D. Warriner of Philadelphia, for
the employers.

j Maryland Conference of Methodist
Protestant Church Opposes
Innovation.
Spec ial Dispatch to The Star.
MILFORD. Del.. April (>.?The Mary
land conference of the Methodist Protes
tant Church went on record this morn
ing as op posing individual cups for com
munion service, a motion bringing about
this change being laid on the table.
There were so many opponents of the
plan that it was promptly shelved.
A resolution was adopted calling upon
the board of publication to eliminate all
advertising from Sunday school literature
furnished in the Maryland conference.
This caused the longest discussion of
the day. An amendment allowing adver
tisements from institutions and concerns
operated by the conference was defeated.
The resolution was then passed in its
original form.
Church Formally Dedicated.
The reports of the committee on super
annuation preachers was presented. It
j was laid over until tomorrow morning for
! final discussion and a -tion. A report
i of the conference stewards showfcd thai, j
.S'.t.roo more had been expended the pas I
year as compared with the previous year. {
Following a long discussion on the
proper manner of making out official re
port blanks, a recess was taken until
o'clock.
The remaining debt of $3,200 on the new

"Stock Completely Sold Out"
That will express the condition of affairs as regards the new Encyclopaedia
Britannica in a very few days. Meanwhile immediate delivery following
receipt of order can be promised, but at the present rate at which the work is sell
ing, the stock on hand will not last longer than the 21st of April.
IN the case of most things that vou need and are thniknxy of buymy. it is possible to assume tin* leisurely
attitude and rest upon the comfortable assurance that "some day will do just as well as tod;i\. I n
tortunately, this does not apply to things tor which the demand is greater than the supply.
Light times it has been necessary to print the new Encyclopaedia Britannica. and some 16 presses
have been constantly running tor more than two years. Very soon there will be a shortage ot stock, due
to the announcement that the present extremely favorable prices can no longer be continued. I he daily
volume ot business has doubled within a month, because many ot those who ha\ e been prominng them

THE above tour headings describe in bold outlines a situation
that has a personal interest for every thoughtful reader of this
newspaper, namely , the fulfilIment ot the published announce
ments that have appeared from time to time?
(1) That the presenr low prices of the new Encyclopaedia Bri
tannica were "temporary";
(2) That these low prices were designed to ettect a large and
rapid sale among all classes of book-buyers:
(3) That because of the large investment necessary to make
this entirely new summary of all human knowledge a legitimate
financial return could not be earned unless future buyers were
made to pay higher prices, and
(4) That a definite date would be announced, after which the
present low prices would be discontinued and a new schedule of
higher prices would go into effect.
In England the prices we re increased on December 20 last, and
the work is now selling there at the advancd prices, but owing to
the much larger territory- to be covered in this country and in Can
ada an extension was granted by the Syndics of the Cambridge Uni
versity Press until May 28.
Until then, therefore, anybody can buy the new Encyclopaedia
Britannica direct from the publishers and pay much less money for it
than he would pay if it had been sold in the usual way through book
sellers.

Chance the public will have to get the most authoritative as
well as the most comprehensive work of universal reference ever
published, before the advance in the prices as above, is now only a
matter of a few weeks.
More than 58,000 sets have been sold. All classes have

ever praised. It is a book of universal appeal and universal

set, with a bookcase, is $5 00.
A BOOK FOR EVERYBODY ---ON TERMS FOR EVERYBODY
THE new Encyclopaedia Britannica is not a rich man's book, but it is a book
primarily for all ordinarily intelligent persons of moderate means. If it were
published for the rich only a very few copies would be sold, the venture would
not yield a profit, and the price for a set would run into thousands 0/ dollars. As
such a price its publication would serve no useful purpose. It would, in fact, defeat
the very object for which the book was originally designed, namely, the dissemina
tion of useful knowledge among all classes of the public. The contents of this new
11 til edition, as of all previous editions since the first (Edinburgh. 171-81. have to do
