LONDON, June 1. All the prison ers taken In the Irish rebellion of Easter Sunday, 1016, will be released without reservation. This announce ment was made In the House of Com mons today by Andrew Bonar Law, who said the government felt that by so doing It would aid In the suc cess of the approaching Irish conven tion, which the government hoped would effect a reconciliation among Irish political parties. In making the announcement, Mr. Bonar Law said: "The government has given long and anxious consideration to the posi tion of Irish political prisoners and have arrived at the decision it now la mv duty to announce. The government have felt after giving careful consideration to the approaching session of the con ventlon In which Irishmen themselves will meet to settle the difficult prob lem of the future administration of their country, that this great ex- I perlment win mark a new era in ine relations between Ireland, the United I Kingdom and the Empire. It is therefore desirable beyond measure i that the convention should meet In an atmosphere of harmony and good will, i i hih n nrti. can unreservedly .join. Kothlng could be more regret table than that the work of the con vention should be prejudiced at the outset by embittered associations which might even hinder the settle ment to which all look forward with hope. Release General. ' "In these circumstances, the Gov ernment have decided they cannot give better earnest of the spirit In which they approach the convention than by removing one of the main causes of the serious misunderstand ing of this subject with which It Is In their power to deal. They have decided, therefore, upon the release without reservation of all prisoners now In confinement In connection with the recent rebellion In Ireland. "They have not, however, arrived at this decision without careful con sideration of two aspects of the case which It Is Impossible to Ignore. They have satisfied themselves, first, that Mw am.ia.iw imc..... . , . -, . public securlety would no't be en dangered by auch an act of grace. and, second, that In none of the cases concerned waa participation In the rebellion accompanied by individual acta which would render such a dis play of clemency Impossible. "In recommending to the King grants of general amnesty to the per sons in question, the government have been Inspired by the sanguine hope that their action will be welcomed in a spirit of magnanimity and that the convertlon will enter upon Its arduous undertaking In circumstances that will constitute a good augury for the reconciliation which Is the desire of all parties In every part of tha United Kingdom and the British Empire. Sonar Law Cheered Mr. Bonar Law'a announcement was received with general cheers. Joseph Devlin expressed his grati tude at the decision of the Govern ment, but thought that had they been advised to come to a decision earlier they would have avoided much Irri tation and created at a much earlier period the spirit of reconciliation and good temper which they hoped would prevail In the future. Herbert Samuels, for the English Liberals; George J. Wardle, for the Labor members; Eugene Wason. for the Scottish Liberals, and Ellis Grif fith, for the Welsh members, express ed cordial approval of the action of the government. KAISER WESTERN RANCHER? The Very Thought Makes Official Newspaper Angry. TUB HAGUE, June 16. The official North German Gazette publishes an i ngry attack on neutral papers which, 'It save, have circulated a story of the Kaiser's holding American shares. The paper says. The notice now going the rounds of neutrsl papers throws glaring light on the methods of enemy agents This story declares that the Kaiser and his brother. Prince Henry, have Invested considerable capital In AmeriauJ shares. Previously these agents de clared the Kaiser had property in England, and hence the war against Bngland was being conducted gently The enemy propagates lies on a big' scale and little dally." I The true facts are that the story of I the Kaiser's property in England was1 circulated In the German press and ad-1 mltted at tne time by the Von Tlrpltz and Reventlow enthusiasts to explsln why submarine warfare was delayed. Similarly the American story, which,, by the way, dates from long before the war. Is being revived not by the1 allied agents, but by Germans to ex-1 plain the supposed reluctance of thl Kaiser to let matters come to a cllmaj with the United States. It may be add-1 ed that the Kaiser la supposed to own ranches and other property In the mid dle West. ' Hair Made Beautifully Wavy While You Sleep!

By J. W. rEGLER. WITH THE BRITISH mail). "Whole towns erased off the ground and towering cally felled these scenes of merciless destruction illustrate why the British soldier wants retribution against the Boche. Tommy goes ahead repairing the roads and clearing the debris from village streets, admitting that It was military good sense for the enemy to obstruct the lines of pursuit. But the Germans said they did these things to prevent the concealment of iroops. And the soldier reasons It this way: The Boche aeroplanes never get over" anyway to observe where the troops are massing. Sa what difference could It make whether they have concealment? Also, the Boche waa careful to ruin orchards, but he left many acres of dense but unproductive woods. What's the answer? Strafe 'era. Feronne Cathedral refuses the plea of military necessity.

At the outskirts of the town lies Peronne Cemetery, where the Boche dug In among the dead. Corpses were thrown Into bonfires and tha vaults occupied by German officers aa dugouts. Two trench lines run straight through the cemetery. Military necessity made the enemy smash the door of a French family tomb where six dead bad alept for many years. The coffins remained ex posed. Two English guard regiments with a little feud between them went into the cemetery on the heels of the Boche. The first arrivals found one coffin bored by a machine gun bullet from the direction of their advance. This message waa on the white-washed wall: The Boche may have had dugouts here, but he didn't shoot the hole In the far-off coffin." To which the late-comers scribbled this reply: "Neither did they write on the walls, you blackguards."
