IRISH HOME RULE NOW IN SIGHT LONDON, April 10?The Home Ilule bill appears to have a better prospect ot being carried than ever before. The Tories are scared by the indignation aroused by their support of the dis affected army officers and they are now anxious for any settlement. The possibility of an election cry of "the Parliament versus the army" has alarmed all sections of the Unionist party, which may account for the sym-j pathy with which Sir Edward Grey's j suggestion of a Federal system of government was received. This may lead to a renewal of the negotiations between the leaders of the rival par ttua. It 1h now planned that Ulster will accept the proposition of permitting the anti-home rule counties to remain out of the Dublin government for six years, and in the meantime both par ties will consult upon accepting the suggestion of Sir Edward Grey, who is leader for the Government In the Commons, pending the re-electloji of Prime Minister Herbert if. Asqulth by Ills constituency, that Great Britain provide a Federal system of govern ment with a written constitution. Asquith's acceptance of the Issue of the army against the Parliament, his taking over the war portfolio, res ignation from Parliament and asking for a re-election on the issue that the situation created, together with Sir Edward Grey's declaration that the action of the army threatened the por petuation of the kingdom and that if there was an election It would come on a more grave question than homo rule have completely reversed the political situation. Commenting upon the changed con ditions, the Times, Unionist, says, "this amazing government Is profiting by its own mistake." The Times predicts the' passage of the home rule bill and its acceptance on Asquith's terms. ANOTHER ORIGINAL CHISANA STAKER WINS CORDOVA. April 10. ?
