I OF VISCOUNT GREY
Calls His Scheme for Irish
Self-Govern men t a "Policy
I LSTEK FOR PENDING BILL
Prefer It to Any Other Alternative
and Will Work for
It, Says Leader. '
London, Oct. 2.?"A more hopeless
- suggestion never emanated from the
brain of a statesman," In Sir Edward
Carson's comment on Viscount Orey's
Irish plan In a letter from the Ulster
leader on conditions In Ireland printed
In the London newspapers to-day.
"In plain English," says Sir Edward,
"It means 'abandon all those who aro
loyal to the crown; leave them to the
tender mercies of their Sinn Fein fellow
countrymen, and If they murder each
other and e&haust themselves in
* slaughter we will look on without concern,'
This is a policy of scyttle with a
Referring1 to Viscount Grey's suggestion
to leave Great Britnin to control
Ireland's foreign policy ^fld the army
and navy, Sir Edward continues:
"Tf they refuse to accept this, what
then? If they burn naval stations,
attack sailors and soldiers and assassinate
officers, then I suppose Viscount
Grey would say we must go a step
further and allow an Irish republic. Is
the murder of Brinsh officers in India
and China to produce the same result?
Sir Edward recalls that during the war
Eamonn de VaTera asserted that a free
Ireland would bo the destruction of the
British aea power, and that Arthur
Griffith said the freedom of the seas
would never he attainable while Ireland
was in her present state, because Ireland's
geographical and commercial position
gave her the key to the Atlantic
and Mediterranean trade.
"What is the use in not facing the real
facts, the real aims of the anti-British
party in Ireland?" asks Sir Edward.
"Every mistake that has been made
originated in basing a policy upon
theory and not upon realities," he says.
Commenting on Viscount Grey's statement
that novody wants to accept the
Home Rule bill now before the .House
of Commons, and that Irishmen will refuse
to operate it. Sir Edward says it is
quite true the Ulster men prefer their
present position un#er the Imperial Parliament.
"But." he continues, "under the existing
circumstances Ulster* in preference
to any other alternative suggested, does
want the bill. Ulster will accept the
bljl; Ulster will work for the bill. Certainly.
as compared with Viscount
Grey's proposal, Ulster would welcome

Madrid, Oct. J.?King Alfonso to-<Iay ,

The editorials of all shades of opinion in

to be unanimous on one point?that Premier
Dato had decided to ask the King
again for a decree dissolving the Cortes
in view of the Cfovernment's lack of a
majority. Most of them expressed the
opinion that In the event of the King's
refusal, whleh was regarded as most
probable, Premier Dato would present I
the resignation of the entire Cabinet. j

that the administrative machinery would

The Liberals are now outwardly united

is still considered a question whether j
the workers intend to adopt parliamentary

Winston Churchill's programme for

so great as to awaken the opposition of
labor and the more conservative taxpayers.
Great Britain's navy appropriation
cf 1914 of 5237,530,459 has also been increased,
despite a generally recognised
demand for its reduction, in view of the
fact that Germany her deadliest rival on
the tons. has been eliminated.
In 1914 Japan appropriated $49,000,000
for her army, but Is spending for the
current y^ar on that branch of her defence
the sum of $105,000,000, exclusive
of the additional sum of $100,000,000 for
the Siberian expedition. In 1914 the
