Bj the Associated Picas. DCBLIN. April 17.?An attempt on the life of .Michael Collins, head of the provisional Free State govern ment, Was made here shortly after midnight this morning, coming almost simultaneously with an assault on the Beggars' Bush headquarters of the Irish republican army, says an official army statement. Mr. Collins was on his way home after having addressed a meeting at Naas. County Kildare, when th^. at tack occurred. A group of men, some armed with riilea, rushed at the Col lins party's car and opened fire, the Free State leader apparently being the especial target. The Collins party quickly returned the fire and one of the attackers was captured. A revolver and a live i>omb were found on him. As vaulting Party cheeked. During the fighting a general headquarters car from the Beggars' Bush barracks was disabled by rifle tire and captured. The headquarters barracks was at tacked by riflemen from all sides at midnight, about twenty'shots being discharged. Commandant Gen. Ennis was fired at outsid^ the gate. The garrison raked the surrounding ter ritory with bullets and the assaulting party withdrew. An army transport also was at tacked, but without results, the be siegers fleeing after a sharp ex change of shuts. Shots were tired on the premises occupied by the civic guard at Bails bridge. No damage and no casual ties were reported. Collins Comments on Sffcootlng. In his speech at Naas, County Kil dare, yesterday, Mr. Collins ckarged the opponents of the provisional Free State government with setting bar riers against the onward march of the nation. He declared that Eamon De Valera had adopted "methods of anarchy'' because the people of Ire land were not willing to allow him to decide the treaty question for them. D? Valera regarded this at titude of the people as an "unfor givable sin." and for it they were to be deprived of their right to choose a government. In describing the attack on him. Mr. Collins today said when the auto mobile pulled up in front of Vaughn s Hotel he and two friends alighted. ] One of them entered the hotel and Mr. Collins, with the other, walked along the square. "A number of men/' Mr. Collins said, "rushed out of a house and encircled us. bhots I were fired. I pulled out my auto matic and fired. I believe I wounded one, and 1 caught another by he hand and took his revolver froni him. He was taken to Mountjoy jail, where a big bomb was found in his pocket. Griffith Demands Voters' Rights. Dublin got Its first reports today of the address delivered at Sligo yes terday by Arthur Griffith, president of the dail elreann. Communications with Sligo were cut off during the meeting. . According to accounts of the ad dress brought back to Dublin today. Mr. Griffith said those who opposed the free state treaty had raised the Issue as to whether the Irish people had a right to decide for themselves their own destiny. ... . r Those who fought for liberty against the British black and tans were not going to yield to the Irish black and tans, he declared. Mr. Griffith was reported as saying the Irish people had a perfect right to reject the treaty, but that nobody had a right to say that the people should not decide for themselves whether they would or would not have the treaty. He was not going to surrender that right to a 3""** which said to the Irish people that they had to submit because the junta had revolvers In their hands. Gen. McKeown, who has charge of Free State forces in Sligo, was largely instrumental in enabling the meeting to be held. ANOTHER MTJBDEB VICTIM. Police Shoot Unknown Man?Bomb Hurled Into Church Yard.

Lee'la being congratulated by Poatmaater General Work. Noted at the D. A. R. Congress If all roads didn't lead to Memorial Continental Hall today there must have been very few traveling' the ones that didn't. The House committee had to put traffic regulations into effect in the hall. The south stairway was desig nated for "upstairs traffic," wlhile the north stairway was used for traffic "downstairs." Tlte numerous members of the House committee, virtually all of whom had thoroughly familiarized themselves with every nook and cranny of the hall, and the various points for the seating of state dele gations were posted all over the builo ing from the frtant doors to the inner vestibule of the auditorium and at the approaches of each stairway on each floor. The flood of delegates and alter nates streaming iijta the building since bliortly after1 V o'clock kept the traffic-directing' members of the House committee extremely busy. That the 2,700 delegates and alter nates who entei*ed the hall were held with a minimum of confusion testi fied" to the work of the committee, virtually all of which were coniposed of local members. ^ The officials of the committee were Misa Katharine A. Nettleton, chair man; Mrs. Louis T. McFadden, vice chairman; Mrs. Charles H. Blssell, Mrs. Richard E. Claugbton, Mrs. Louis A. Abbott, Mrs. Sol Lansburgh, Mrs. Charles H. Le Febre. Mrs. Koy G. Harris. Miss Mary V. Petty, Miss Florence S. Marcy Crofut. Miss Aline E. Solomons. Mrs. W+Houghby S. Chesley, Mrs. Garry B. Gauss. Mrs. Fred L Volland, Miss Mary C. Oursler, Mrs. Frederick A. Strong. Mrs. Mary Logan Tucker. Mrs. John M. Beavers and Mr*. J. W. Finney. Tfeese of ficials had charge as chairmen of va rious subcommittees of the bouse committee and the persons directly responsible for the seating and other arrangements. A special detail of policemen from the third precinct were on. duty out side the hall and in charge, of the dl-" rection of vehicular traffic outside the building. The action was com mended by a number of the officials of the congress as being of great aid to many of the delegates who cross by way of the Ellipse. Pages, as usftal, were all In white. They were selected from the various states, and were especially well or ganised this year under the direction of congress officials. , Miss Dorothy Hunter was the presi dent general's personal page; Miss Dorothy De Groff Jenkins, the record ing/ secretary's; Miss Louis Carman, page to the organising secretary gen eral; Mrs. Harrol Tschudl, to the cor responding secretary general, and Mrs. W. F. dinger, page of the treas urer general. The platform pages are Mrs. Fred erick A. Curtiss, Jr.; Miss Harriet "P. Marine, Mrs. O. Brooks White, jr.; Miss Bertha C. Perry and Miss Ethel Cotton Sparks. Following the sessions today, it was announced that Mrs. Frank D. Ellison, librarian general, wishes to confer with all state librarians in the library at the hall. The conference is ex pected to have an important part in further co-ordinating state and na-| tional library work. Mrs. Minor In opening her address made reference to the hostoric sig nificance taken on by the Memorial Continental Hall since the holding of the arms conference here. "With great pride." she said. "I welcome you today to your beautiful home now made historic as the scene of the most memorable conference of nations that has ever filled the pages of history. In Memorial Continental Hall, a new era has had its birth. " 'This building has many memo ries.' said Secretary Hughes, at the close of his memorable speech which brought the proceedings of the con ference to an end on February 4.

"You are sitting today in the place where the nine controlling nations of the world have sat together in peaceful and sympathetic considera tion of one another's aims, needs and aspiration." Flags and flowers form the princi pal features of the decoration of the hall. Across the walls near the ceil ing hang the flags of the states and | revolutionary standards, forming a square of bunting. Flowers are banked on the plat [ form on either side of Mrs. Minor, the ; president general, virtually all of | them being tokens of appreciation for the services rendered by the general officers. The auditorium itself js crowded to the doors. Some confusion resulted on account of the large throngs, but. under the circumstances the situation was handled with the greatest ex pediency,'it appeared to observers. Tonight's session will be featured by addresses of Secretary of State Hughes, Ambassador Jusserand of France and Ambassador Sir Auckland Geddes of Great Britain. The invocation tonight will be of fered by Rev. Dr. William S. Abemethy. while Rev. Dr. Wallace RadclifTe will pt?nounce benediction.
