to-day the first of a series of arti-1
cles on present day Ireland, writ-1
ten by a staff correspondent and
forwarded from Tin: Hi rai d's Dub- j

chiefly with industrial, economic!
and social topics, and, while taking
into account the political uncertain- 1

fhey present a hopeful picture of
the future. Another article will be
printed to-morrow, and the series

Ireland expects to be In line fettle
to receive flocks of American tourists
tills summer. It will be the first time
that "flocks" of Americans have been
In Ireland in seven years. It has been
a period of seven lean years for the
hotel keepers, the jaunting car drivers
and the tourist agencies. But prices
in Ireland are not relatively as high
ns they are elsewhere in Europe anJ
If there are still some items of comfort !
which will be lacking the geniality of
welcome awaiting Americans will
make up for it.
All of the essentials are still to be i
found. Food is abundant and excel!ept. j
Service i3 plentiful and courteous and
In the main efficient, though full of
I that casual quality that makes the
Irish servant such a delight, and
sometimes such a trial.
As throughout Europe, railway fares
for first class tickets arc still very
high, and In Ireland the railway serv
ice, though adequate, has not yet re
turned to pre-war speed or frequency.
Before the war road travel in motor
cars and motor coaches was Just be
ginning to develop. During the inter
nal troubles with the Government re
strictions on motor travel it has of
course languished. But fine private
ears are available in Dublin, Cork,
Belfast and other large centers for
from a shilling to a shilling and three
ponce per mile for touring. In addi
tion to this the tourist agencies and
the railways have plans which they
will put into effect rapidly as soon as
political affairs assume a definite
Riilse of settlement for the operation
of largo, new and cofortable fleets ol
char-a-bancs and public motor coaches
on definite routes through the beau- j
tlful and historic parts of Kerry and;
Clare and Oajway and Antrim.
Even last summer it was possible to
make these trips in perfect comfort |
And last year the roads were spotted i
with the open and concealed trenches j
of the guerrilla warfare that did not j
? ease until July. Local authorities have j
made rapid efforts to patch up these
bad spots, and though some of the
reads still suffer from the effects of
heavy military traffic they are in the
main good, and by the end of the
sprinp will be perfectly safe.
Before the war it was the custom
for all American tourists headed for
Ireland to go ashore in lovely Queens
town harbor, and this summer for the!
first time the I'nited States Linos the'
White Star ai.d the Cunard will make!
rcrular calls there, averaging three!
and four big ships a week.
Queonstown itself is rather hopinp
that it will see more of its visiting
Americans than it did before the war. j
Tt used to he the custom then for them
to pile into special trains to run along
the south coast to Killarney or up the !
narow gauge, or by coach to Blarney.

?Firiivc, which took place the greater

he tells little yarns to make the flesh |
creep about the days when every man
in Cork was suspect by one side 01
the other and to be suspect meant liv
ing for the most part under the muz
ales of well used pistols. 1
What is worrying most of the per
sons hoping for a large American tour
ist business this summer is the taci
that the bitterest of the fighting wen
on in the most picturesque of the
mountain country ot the south and i
west. The biggest hotels on the lakes
of Killarney were barracks for the.
Black and Tans. Every road of any
importance was frequently and skill
fully trenched And there is many a
boy and nvm who would have been
earning an honest shilling leading the
donkev, rowing the boat, or drivin"
the motor car of the American tourist
this summer who fell victim to the
mysterious bullets of the bad old bitter
days in the hills and along the bass.
Itecent reports received from this
region by John P. Moore of Dublin,
the manager for Thomas Cook & Sons,
indicate that there will be ample ac
commodation for all. m
"Successful efforts have been made,
he uays, "to repair the damage of the
seven lean years in many of the hotels.
Wc have not yet completed our sur
vey of this district's facilities, but
what we have found leads me to be
lieve that we will be able to book tour
ists through there with perfect con
fidence that they will be well cared
for."
What will give additional interest to
this part of th?> country this year is
that almost every village has its own
story of the recent fighting, and the
local villager takes good care to see
that each story is a romance. Some of
them really are. Some of them savor
of the most romantic exploits con
nected with the thousand year old
ruins that dot the west of Ireland and
whose stories will run back through
the ages of chivalry to the age of sav
agery.
Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Baltimore,
Bantry, Macroom, Kenmare, Parkna
sill, Valentia. Farranfore and Dingie.
not to mention Killarney itself and
Mallow and Knockalong. are names
that figured in large and sometimes
red and sinister letters in the annals
of the last few years in Ireland.
Dublin Normal Asrnln.
Life in Dublin has perhaps got back
to normal more quickly than any place
else in Ireland. There were bitter times
in Dublin during the last few years,'
when one xv^nt about the streets con- ,
stantly with the feeling that a gun was I
pointed at nn"'s head, only to find on
looking over one's shoulder that it was
true. But people are doing their best
to forget "Bloody Sunday." the "Croke
Park Massacre" and other events that
left gaunt ruins in the streets and
empty spots by many hearthsldes.
Dublin is a city as large as Wash
ington, yet it has never had any night
life or restaurant life. Efforts are now
being made in the Dubllnei*s joy at
the removal of curfew restrictions^
s?art entertainment of this sort. The
C'.resham Hotel gives dances twice a
week, and a number of small restaur
ants have sprung up about the clt>
where dances and after theater parties
go on every night.
"We can promise Americans the
N>"'t of everything." said James Doyle,
the manager of the Oresham Hotel.
The Oresham went through hard
times during the "war." Hugh the
hall porter at the Oresham, is Jus.
as much of a figure in Trish life as
Tlorrie in Cork. He and Mr. Doyle
looked down the muzzles of revolvers
from both sides more times than tteA j
care to count. Ouests and members
of the staff were constantly under ,
suspicion. But that is all over now.
The hotel runs sfhoothlj*. the cook
operates skillfully and the Oresham
i? once more becoming a center of
"down town" Irish social life.
The Shelbotirne, on Stephen's 0>-ecn.
had a less exciting time of It hnn
the Oresham. It has always been the
rendezvous of the official society of
the capital, and on an nflernoon in
horse show week, or when there is
something special on the Dublin so
cial political or racing calendar, one
might find half of the prominent ofll
cIbIs, peers and other personages of
the old regime having tea In the She'.- |
bourne lounge. It Is just around the ,
corner from the famous Klldare Street |
Dub reputedly the most exclusive club |
In Ihirope, and the center of unionist
sentiment. To-day the Fhelhourne Is I

provincial town of Kmrlnnd. with con
tlncnti'l < ooking. a cellar of rar? null
ity and < omfortahle, well served rooms.
'There are besides a dozen or more,
smaller hotels In Dublin, all of them i
well equipped, comfortable and well 1
run. No account of Dublin would he,

and he lias brought a real Parisian ;

restaurants of the boulevards.

To-night most of the churches were
sparsely attended owing to the incessant
machine gun fire. Throughout the day
and evening the newspaper offices weiv
overwhelmed with telephone calls from
people anxious to know the nature ami
extent of the disorders.
Saturday night in the York stree
district was one of the worst s.nce
August. For hours, before ar.il nfte
the ?curfew firing was general over
a wide area. Simultaneous attacks wer-- i
made thrice on police patrols. Including
the attempt to murder two policemen, in
which one of the policemen was woundeo
and the assailants escaped. Later the
gunmen, emboldened by their successes,
kept up a constant sniping fire. At 11
o'clock, the curfew hour, the police
brought a machine gun into action in
the zone where the firing was takins
place.
News has been received of a border

which three civilians were wounded by '

then, but it still remains a great gath

Ilrlfmit Apalogctlr.
Belfast is shamefacedly apologetic
about its hotels. The Royal Avenue
Hotel and one or two others ratfi a.s
first class hostelries, but no visitor
to Belfast who knows any Belfast man
is ever advised to stay at any of tt/om. i
If Belfast ever settles down one of the
first things it does will be to build
a modern hotel, and it will be a fine
one, according more nearly to Amer
ican standards of comfort and luxury
than any other in Europe, according
to Belfast's ambition. For the pres
ent, however, the native, despite hid
reputation for dour unapproachabiltty, I
will throw open the doors of his club i
and his home to a visitor rather than j
send him to a hotel1?and Belfast hos- j
pitality is one of the most charming ;
things in the world.
The Connemara coast will again be :
a Mecca for British as well as for i
American tourists, and already Brit- 1
lsh tourist? are appearing for the sal- j
mon fishing in the Shannon and other
rivers which its devotees declare 1
to be the finest salmon fishing in the j
world. The lovely, rocky Conncmara
const, indented with sandy bays and 1
washed by the "ull tide of the Gulf j
Stream in all its midocean blue, is j
warm and sunshiny for weeks at a !
time in the summer and has long been !
one of the most popular bathing re- |
sorts in the Brit'.n'i Isles.
It is in the Uganda off this coast, |
the Arran Island off Gal way, Aehlll!
Island off Mayo and far Tory Island \
and the others off the coasts of Done- i
gal, that the true Irish type of femi- ;
nine beauty is supposed to exist un
spoiled in all its barefooted, blue-j
eyed, blackhaired glory. Special ef
forts are to be made by the local peo
ple this summer to promote excursions
to these Islands, as the natives are in
dire poverty if not in actual want, and
such gains as they can gather as boat
men and porters and servants for tour
i.sts will be a godsernj-t/* Uwrjn.i.yt.,
The coasts of Derry and Antrim
with the Giant's Causeway and the
other marvels of the pillared basa'.t
have been little affected by the
troubles In the south and facilities for
carrying and entertaining tourists
there are practically intact. By sum
mer every one confidently expects that
if Ulster decides to remain out of the
Irish Free State some friendly modus

State Leaders at Opening

New York Hrrnld Bureau. |
Dublin. March [
Before a crowd manifestly favorable, |
spontaneous and apparently unanimous j
in lis feeling, Michael Collins, man of
the people and head of hte provisional :
Government, scored repeatedly to-day
in the most brilliant speech of his carcer j
delivered in opening; the campaign in j
favor of the Anglo-Irish treaty in the |
coming flections. The enormous and
enthusiastic crowd, one of the most rep- |
resentative Dublin has seen, stood by
the old House of Parliament, despite i
gusts of rain, and heard tills vigorous i
young leader turn his opponent*' ow*i !
words against them and express good
sense in pithy phrases to catch the im
aginatlon of the common people.
On another platform at the other side
of the building a huge crowd heard
Arthur Griffith In a clear, pointed
speeuh, which was short because he Is
slightly ill from overwork. The crowd
had heard several (food preliminary
speeches by Joseph McGruth, Minister
of Labor, and William Cosgrove Minister
for Home Affairs.
Collins told the great assembly It was
only been use the treaty had been signed
that r>e Valera eould shout so loudly for
the republic. Griffith told the crowd
that the treaty gave full Independence
and that they (the leaders) were de
termined the people should have a free
decision as to Its merits. The position
in the northeast, he said, was not ideal,
but there were only two alternative la
sues?coercion or conciliation. Which
ever alternative was adopted must be
adopted wholeheartedly. All were agreed
against coercion, but the treaty con
tained forces for persuasion which
would bring the northeast into bank
ruptcy if it stayed out of the Free
State.
Will Retain Volunteers.
Collins opened his speech by recalling !
the history the old Parliament House !
brought to mind and declared a great j
mistake was nlade in 1782 when separa
tion wus secured and the volunteers
were disbanded. "But we have no in
tention of disbanding our volunteers;
now," he declared amidst cheers. He
rcached the heart' of every Irishman j
who has become disgusted with the rc-;
cent Increasing lawlessness by declaring:1
"We want your support to suppress
crime and disorder. We want your sup
port for the police force wc are forming.
We will have a people's guard for the
protection of all parties and classes.
Will your opponents hinder and obstruct,
that course? Will they go on making
difficulties?? We have a right to hear tin
answers to these questions. Let the
people hear the answers."
In connection with this point he re
called the tragedy of Friday, when the
son-in-law of John Redmond was shot
dead in the center of the city while try*
ing to catch a thief. He also recalled
De Valera's warning at the closing ses
sion of the Pail Klreann against the
[treating of a police force and using any
means of policing except the Irish Re
publiean army. Here an extraordinary
thing occurred. Probably for the first
time De Valera's namo was slightly but
noticeably booed.
Free Stnte- mi Oaaia.
The main points in Collins'* speech
were that the treaty made it possible to
resume the campaign for a republic,
which was abandoned last July: that
the free state was merely an oasi3 in
the desert of Ireland's struggle where
instead of ignoring It as IV Valera in
drawing his simile advised, ihey would
rest and refresh themselves and then
no on: that the treaty gav j the best
guarantees of freedom that could be got
an paper; that De Valera's tactics in
'pllttlng the country would not abolish
hut perpetuate the partition of Ireland.
Mid finally that he meant to abolish a
police force for which he needed the
support of the people. The speech closed
with an appeal for the abandonment of
fighting, which he declared when for
kltal and patriotic ends was necessary
find noble, but when it became an end
In itself, was depravity.
Griffith's speech covered familiar
croiind. He pointed out that the treaty
recognized the nationhood of Ireland
and that the opponents oPY-red no al
ternative, their only prescription for Im
oroving Ireland's soul bein,T to keep the
body lacerated. Griffith charged that
the opponents of the treaty were gamb
ling with the lives and fortunes of the
nation and urged acccptancc of the
treaty with which the present genera
tion of Irishmen could live and see ire
land established for the Irish.
Dublin", March 3 (Associated Press).
?Crowds which gathered to-day for the
opening of the campaign in favor of ac
:eptanco of the Anuo-Irlsh (Irish Freo
State) treaty were notable, not only be
cause of their vast proportions but the
ilgh degree of enthusiasm evinced. IS'ot
fvlthstandtng the rain, which turned Col
lege Green into a veritable forest of um
brellas. the people stayed to hoar all the
speakers.
With tile exception of a minor fla*
Incident, when girls and women tore
lown a Free State tricolor, perfect order
vns maintained by the Republican police.
The resentful cM*d Jeered and booed"
l,e women for the flag affair, and at
tempta at Interruption by a hnndful of
the same women who remained near the
alatform were drowned out by popular
irotest.
The flag Incident occurred at the plat
fnr: from which Mr. Collins was speak
ng. A 'arge tricolor was Just about to
he hoisted when a band of girls and
tvomen. members of the Tlepubllrnn or
lanlzitlnn, rushed to the platform,
elzed the flagstaff and pulled down and
tore up the flag. There was a struggle
for possession of the remnants of It.
When a majority of the women had

CHARGES BY BAR

closure: but 1 deem it r'^per to state
that I have anxiously and thoroughly
examined the evidence relating to these
two transactions and that I have volun
teered to defend Mr. Chadbourra os a
brother 1-iwyer because I believe him
to be unjustly accused and innocent of
any breach of ethics in connection with
either of theiw transactions.
"I hope that the press will. In fair
ness. withhold expressing any opinion or
one sided and perhaps prejudiced state
ments. but will await the decision of
the Appellate Division on the merits of
the charge? new to be submitted for the
consideration of that court."
Last night Mr. Chadbourne, who baa
been confined by illness to his home, 910
Fifth avenue, declared that he bad
Known of the numerous rumors and
their various shapes and forms that
have been floating about, the city for
some weeks. He preferred, he said, to
let Mr. G'Jthrio do bis talking at tho
present, although he freely admitted that
he bad known of the coming charges
for some time.
From two prominent members of the
? Bar Association The New York Herald
reporter learned that there had been
much discussion in the meetings of the
grievance committee concerning $125,000
given to Mr. Chadbourne by Mr. Gould.
Last night Mr. tiuthrie said that no
part of that sum represented any frac
tion of the $SOO.OOO Mr. Gould received
as commissions from tho sale of the
Western Union stock.
The $125,000 was received by Mr.
Chadbourne. Mr. Guthrie said, but it
represented legal fees and fees for other
services. Among the various rumors
was one that this sum represented Mr.
Chadbourne's share, of the stock sale
commissions. It was learned that this
was not the case and that the Griev
ance Committee has not so charged.
Another report, also denied by Mr.
Guthrie, had it that the legal fee paid
to Mr. Chadwlck by George Gould had
been taken nbt out of Mr. Gould's own
moneys, but from the estate, and that
Mr. Chadbourne knew this. Thk New
Yoi:'< H-rai.d reporter asked one mem
r of the Grievance Committee about
this rumor, and he declared that the
committee had been informed that Mr.
Chadbourne had been paid a fee of
$12.",000, but that It did not And that
there was anything unethical in Mr.
Chadbourne's conduct on that score.
It is not known Just what the ex
ecutive committee of the Bar Associa
tion has recommended to the Appellate
Division, except that it believes that In
justice to Mr. Chadbourne and the legal
jrrofession the charges should be heard
by the court and that the court should
decide whether Mr. Chadbourne is guilty
of unethical practice.
If he is found guilty the Bar Associa
tion may reprimand him. suspend him
from practice, or disbar him. That
anything like so heavy a punishment is
even considered in Mr. Chadbourne's
case, even If he is declared guilty. Is so
improbable as to be dismissed without
consideration according to another
prominen lawyer.
Ilrothcr* ami Sinter* i<( Odds.
Tlte legal proceedings in which Mr. i
Chadbourne acted as attorney for Mr. .
Gould became prominent. Frank Gould 1
and his sister, the Duchess de Tailey- j
rand, declared that Oeorge Gould had
been mismanaging their father's estate
for twenty-six years. George Gould
made immediate denial of all the
charges and he had the support of his

If all advertising did
was Pay
If the only thing a man got from advertising was cash
profits, there wouldn't be nearly so many advertisers.
Advertising men know better than anybody else
(except wives) that the hard-headed American business
man is really a temperamental, sentimental, artist sort
of person who sometimes thinks more of an unsolicited
testimonial from somebody he never saw than he does
of an order that was hard to get.
There is nothing more satisfying in life than the
knowledge that your business enjoys the good opinion
of nearly all the worth-while people in the country.
It would be funny if a favorable public opinion didn't
"pay." It would be funny if this favorable public
opinion could be got for nothing, or induced with lies,
or stimulated by vain boasting.
Instead of wondering whether advertising does pay
or won't pay, think what it is, and decide from that
whether you are fit to have it or not.
O nce a month, or more frequently, we issue a publication
called Batten's Wedge. Each issue is devoted to a single
editorial on some phase of business. If you are a business
executive and would like to receive copies, write us.
