IN HOME RULE
Winston Churchill Howled
Down by Angry Unionists.
I,on<Jon. Jan. 2.—Ulster must accept
the home rule bill as well as every
other province In Ireland, according to
a vote In the house of commons. An
amendment was pro[x>sed by the Un
ionist members to exclude Ulster from
the operations of the bill. Tills amend
ment was debated at some length and
with considerable rancor, but It was
finally beaten by a vote of 204 to 197.
When the debate opened Sir Edward
Carson, the chairman of the Ulster
Unionist organization, earnestly depre
cated what he called the tendency of
file ministerial members to latigti at
and treat with levity the attitude of
the Orange Ulster men. It was a stern
fact, and he (Sir Edward) was con
vinced that nothing but force could
compel the Ulster men to break their
covenant, and submit to home rule
Premier Asquith in reply said the
government In framing the measure
had taken all precautions possible to
guard against the Irish parliament mis
using its powers and was still prepared
to add any safeguards that could be
shown to be necessary, but they could
not accept the proposed amendment

foreign country than by the Irish Na
Winston Churchill Interrupted with a
sarcastic reference to Mr. Law's re
mark about a foreign country, saying,
"This is the latest Tory threat; Ulster
will secede to Germany." This stung
the Unionists, and a great uproar fol
lowed. There were shouts of "Ger
many!" "Which Germany?" "Who said
The Hpeaker appealed in vain for or
der, while all the time Churchill stood
up and attempted to continue his re
marks. Every time he attempted to
speak he was Interrupted, and finally
he sat down after having apparently
succeeded in achieving his bile stirring
purpose by his gratuitous allusion to
The amendment was then put to a
vote and beaten by the governr'ent.

A missionary who had served in Chi
na for ten years paid what some of
them probably considered an "objec
tionable" compliment to the female
section of a fashionable London audi

the Chinese custom of foot binding.
Remarking that there were 400,000,000
»f people iu China, at least half of
whom were women and girls, he in
quired, "Of that number how many do
vou think have nice large feet like the ;
ladles whom I see before me?"
