OFFER BY BRITISH Plan Would Mean Split Ireland Instead of Dominion Statu?, Dail Says London, Sept. 4. The reply of the Irish Republican Parliament to Prime Minister David Llloyd Jects the British Government's pro posals for settlement of the Irish question on the ground that they are not based on a domination sta tus for Ireland. It leaves the way i open for further investigations, polnt plenipotentiaries on the basis .i .. . consent of the government. The reply, stoned bv Eamonn de ,valera, which was made nubile In London and Dublin simultaneously today, had been preceded in the British and Irish press by a number ' . - ' . i mi hfi'U'vuuj iiioyucu Diatoiiicii La nnrn a tl IncnlH...! 1 .. thnr iff n'milri rpflatA a very grate situation. Perusal of the reply, however, affords little reason to fear Immediate breakdown of the negotiations unless the Cabinet Council, meeting Wednesday to con sider it, should decide to impose a time limit within which Ireland must accept or reject the govern ment proposals. Divided Ireland Feared The reply shows that ' Mr. de Vulera and the Dail Eireann have not receded in the slightest from the position formerly adopted. It emphasizes that the British Govern- gent's proposals are not an invita tion to enter into a free and willing partnership with the nations of the British Commonwealth, but that on the contrary the conditions Mr, Lloyd George seeks to imppse would divide Ireland into two artificial anff mutually destructive states. It insists that the plenipoten tiaries must enter a conference un trammeled by any. conditions, birl with that proviso, says that the Dail Eireann is ready to appoint plenipotentiaries. Except that Mr. de Valera seems to gnore the Prime Minister's warn ing of danger in continued delay, the position Is much the same as on the occasion of the last exchange of letters, and almost certainly there will be a further exchange before a real crisis arises. MORROW ESCAPES FROM BURNING BED Gov. Edwin P. Morrow escaped uninjured when his bed in The Seel bach caught fire at 4 o'clock Sunday morning, but did not escape being the central figure in a scene of tur moil and excitement. wnen nremen, answering an alarm, came before the hotel, they saw the Governor standing ou a second-floor balcony, looking down over the crowd which was gather ing below.
