Objectors Granted Freedom
WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. AU army conscientious objectors Imprisoned
during the war have now been released from custody. Secretary of War
Baker announced tonight. A total of 33, the statement said, have been
discharged by recent orders. Including B. J. Salmons, who started a "hunger
strike" while confined In a government hospital here a month ago.
"The cases of the 33 conscientious objectors who remained in custody
some weeks ago have now been finally reviewed by the secretary of war,"
Mr. Baker's statement said, "on the recommendation of the adjutant general's
office, and the remainder of sentences remitted and" the men discharged.
"Each case has been considered on. its merits and the principle on which
they have been considered Is to remit so much of the sentence as exceeds
the normal peace time penalty for the offenses charged.
"The major part of these men "have been in confinement for more than
two years. Those last discharged were men who had refused to do any sort
of work while In confinement.
"Benjamin J. Salmons of Denver, whose case has attracted some atten
tion, was the last case disposed of by reason of the fact that legal pro
ceedings Instituted In the civil courts have delayed consideration of his
case."

LONDON, Nov. 84. The most con
eplcuous In the Irish debate In the
house of commons today was the reve
lation by Sir Hamar Greenwood, chief
secretary of Ireland, of Sinn Fein
plans to destroy property in Liverpool
and Manchester a revelation which
waa greeted by Joseph Devlin with the
exclamation:
"All that was written In Dublin
castle!"
In other respects the debate followed
the customary lines. Former Premier
Asquith moved a resolution expressing
abhorrence on the recent Dublin aa
asslnatlona and condemnation of re
prisals and urging Immediate steps to
bring about Irish pacification. An
imnndmrnt b'v Col. John Ward con
verted thU motion Into an expression
of admiration for the courage and de
votion of the crown forces In Ireland.
This was adopted by 303 to 83. and the
motion as thus amended was adopted
by acclamation amid cheers.
The chief secretary appealed to the
house to show every consideration by
word and by resolution for the police,
aoldiers, civil servants and Judges, who.
he declared, were obeying the orders
of parliament and fighting a battle
against assassination and not against
the Irish people. He appealed espe
citlly to the "great Catholic c&urch In
Ireland," which, he said, by appeals
from every altar could greatly assist In
this fight against assassination. Sir
Hamar Greenwood ended his address
amid cheering, when he sal&t
"There Is only one issue left. That
is: Who Is for the empire and who is
for assassination."

Don't Wait to Be Called on
to Enroll in the Red Cross
Here is a call to make the work of the Red Cross lighter and to help out
in a cause which should at once enlist the best sympathies and efforts of all.
Owing tq the diminished working force of hte Red Cross it has been
impossible to cover every district In this city In the annual Roll Call now
in progress. There are many people, doubtless, who have waited to be so
licited and are ready to answer to the roll call if called upon. But this has
been impossible in all cases.
Therefore, it is requested that all who have not been called upon at
their homes or places of business will themselves call at the Red Cross
rooms at the chamber of commerce and enroll in this roll call which should
include every man, woman and child in Phoenix. There will be a repre
sentative at the desk at the chamber of commerce all day today and Friday
to accept these memberships. It costs only $1.00 to get on this roll of
honor, although there are other classes of memberships at higher prices for
those who wish to aid the Red Cross that much more.
There is urgent need for every'dollar that can be collected as the Phoe
nix service section of the Red Cross is expending more than $1,000 each
month In taking care of the returned soldiers and their families and in
other work. -

England Lost America
by Not Giving in
Time, Grey Says
Republican A. P. Leased Wire "
LONDON, Nov. 24. The debate in
the house of lords on Irish home rule
tonight was made memorable by a not
able appeal from Viscount Grey, for
mer secretary for foreign, affairs, to
the government for- an eleventh hour
attempt by generosity to Ireland to
fashion the bill into an acceptable
measure.
In a speech displaying no resentment
and taking full account of the govern
ment's extreme difficulties in Ireland
he urged that unless the government
was able to secure effective control In
Ireland it would be better to withdraw
all the armed forces and leave Ire
land to . find her own salvation.
Whether the appeal will be heeded
time will show, but it is slgnifcant that
Earl Middleton intends tomorrow to
move adjournment of the debate for a
fortnight to allow the government
time to consider what amendments, fi
nancial and otherwise, it will propose,
Viscount Grey declared the real
cause of failure in obtaining a settle
ment was the difference of opinon m
Ireland itself. Unless these differences
were composed, he asserted, there
could be no settlement and the bill be
fore the lords, to put it mildly, had not
made the differences less. It had con
ciliated Ulster, Viscount Grey said, but
had brought the southern Unionists
and Nationalists into opposition.
Lord Grey argued that it would have
been better had the government, in
stead of preparing a detailed bill,
started by laying down on broad lines
the limits within which Ireland could
have complete autonomy and the mini
mum which England must reserve for
the security and safety not only of her
self but of Ireland.
He outlined this minimum as, first
placing Ireland in precisely the pame
position with regard to foreign affairs
as the great self-governing dominions
with the same right to be consulted
about commercial treaties, and second,
only one army ln these two islands
He would not, however, contemplate
the maintenance of any imperial troops
in Ireland after home rule had passed,
unless Ireland desired it.
"I am perfectly certain, and the his
tory of war shows it, that unless there
is only one navy and one naval au
thority, neither Ireland nor Great
Britain could be defended," said Lord
Grey. "That must be without qualifi
cation. Whatever dominion home rule
might mean, we must from the begin
ning have no ambiguity on this ques
tion."
With England and Ireland so close
together and under modern conditions
of mines and submarines, he continued.
it was absolutely inconsistent with the
safety of either country that there
fehould be divided naval authority.
He admitted that after what had
happened in Ireland in the past few
weeks he could hardly advocate a
predicable course, as he did recently,
that Ireland should be left to say what
form of government she desired. But
the time might come when the govern
ment would have to consider that
method of precedure again.
He would have it clearly understood
in Ireland that Great Britain could not
go on indefinitely being maneuvered
into the position of either coercing na
tionalist Ireland or coercing Ulster, and
the greatest lever the government could
bring to bear to secure a settlement
would be to make, it perfectly clear
that the ultimate responsibility for the
government of Ireland rested with the
Irish people and that the government
could not continue indefinitely to gov
em any part of Ireland by force.
He desired to qualify his previous
suggestion, madi before reprisals were
heard of, that the armed forces should
be withdrawn from ireiana two years
hence; he would admit frankly that
under the present state of affairs in
Ireland he would never advocate that
the armed forces should be kept there
for another two years or any specified
time.
Expressing indignation at the mur
ders and anxiety for the lack of disci
nline of the crown forces. Viscount
Grey declared that unless the govern
ment could assume direct, real and ef
fectlve control in Ireland It would he

: SANTA FE, N. M Nov. 24. Release
of trie 16 Villlstas from the state pen
itentiary was halted, temporarily, at
least, this afternoon when Judge Reed
Holloman, of the district court, on ap
plication of Albert W. Clancy of Santa
Fe issued a writ of mandamus directed
to Fidel Ortiz, warden of the peniten
tiary, commanding him to show why
he should honor the pardons issued by
Governor O. A. Larrazolo a few daye
ago. The case was set . for hearing
December. 4, and the convicts cannot
be released before that date. They

Advising Coal
Jl"ltlr 1 oa r1oiC I Iresident-elect Obregon and he could -OltlivC
ICaQciO not be Interviewed regarding the new
better to withdraw the armed forces
now.
He wished the government to have
all powers for punishing crime, but
these powers must be exercised with
real discretion and control, and if that
were impossible then withdrawal was
the better course.
Voicing his doubt as to whether a
constituent assembly or convention to
settle the question was practicable now
and criticising the financial clauses of
the bill, the speaker urged the govern
ment to try to amendt the bill and make
It more acceptable by more generosity
regarding finance and by offering fiscal
autonomy ln the hope that It would
bring about peace, instead of demand
ing peace as a condition of giving fiscal
autonomy. Alluding to foreign opinion.
Lord Grey hoped the government would
endeavor to make the bill sufficiently
strong and generous to appeal to all
moderate opinion.
"We have the greatest empire in the
world," he declared, "but it has not
been without its reverses. We lost
America through not giving in time
and not giving enough. Have we ever
in our history lost through giving too
much?"
He instanced South Africa as an Il
lustration and Said it was not yet too
late. As it stood, the bill would only
mean trouble In Ireland, but if the bill
were improved there waa a real pros
pect. He begged the government to
take courage from the history of the
empire and not throw away this oppor
tunity, but give the house the oppor
tunity of recording its verdict upon a
larger and better measure. -
Viscount Bryce said that instead of
cutting Ireland in two, It would have
been better to have one parliament,
with all possible guarantees that Ul
ster would be looked after. The bill, as
it stood, offered no prospect of fulfill
ing the hopes they all cherished and
it was only by going still further that
a settlement could be accomplished.
