It was dispatched early today and was con sidered the British government's final word in exchange of messages. Lloyd George informed De Valera that the British government could not alter its fundamental position . which was vital to the empire’s ex istence. The position was that Ire land could not be allowed to separ ate but must base her proposition upon self government as a member of the sisterhood of British domin ion. | Mr. de Valera has already agreed F to confer on the question of the as sociation of Ireland with the empire, but has reiterated the decision ol' Bail that its negotiators would con sider themselves representatives of an independent country. Since then Arthur Griffiths has been quoted as declaring the Sinn Fein had never uskcd the British government to reeognlze the claim to Irish inde pendence as a preliminary to a con ference. Thus, the view held In some quar ters is that the Sinn Fein can now •ccept Mr. Lloyd George's invitation without abandoning its own stand point. Text of Premier's Reply GAIRLOCH, Sept. 29 (By The Associated Press)—The text of Pre mier Lloyd George's reply which was dispatched to Dublin today fol lows: "Sir: "His majesty’s government has given close and earnest considera tion to the correspondence which has passed between us since their invitation to you to send delegates to a conference at Inverness. "In spite of their sincere desire for peace and in spite of the more conciliatory tone of your latest com munication they cannot enter into a conference upon the basis of this COrresqonueute. “Notwithstanding your personal assurance to the contrary which they must appreciate it might be argued in the future that the ac ceptance of a conference on this ba sis has involved them In a recogni tion which no British government can accord. On this point they must guard themselves against any possi | ble doubt. There is no purpose to W be served by any further inter change of explanatory and argu mentative communications upon this subject. "The position taken up by his ma jesty's government is fundamental to the existence of the British empire and they cannot alter It. “My colleagues and 1 remain keen ly anxious to make. In co-operation with your delegates another deter mined effort to explore every pos sibility of a settlement by personal discussion. , . "The proposals which we have al ready made have been taken by the whole world as proof that our endea vors for reconciliation and settlement are of no empty form and we feel that conference—not correspond ence—is the most practical and hopeful wray to an understanding such as we ardently desire to achieve. "We, therefore, send you. here with a fresh invitation to a confer ence in London. October 11. where we can meet your delegates as the spokesmen of the people whom you represent, with a view to ascertain ing how the association of Ireland with the community of nations known as the British empire, may best be reconciled with Irish national aspirations "I am sir.

Afraid That Measure May Prove Its Undoing at the Coming Election TRENTON. Sept. 29:—A change in the VanNess prohibition enforce ment act so as to include a trial by jury for all persons charged with the possession of intoxicating liquor* is likely to be advocated by the Re publican state platform, according to political gossip heard here today at the Trenton fair.

ACT ON STRIKE Shop Craft Men Set No Date for Strike-Await Action of Others CHICAGO, Sept. 29Sixty-seven general chairmen of the Brother hood of Railroad Trainmen will leave Chicago tonight carrying in structions from President W. G. Lee to call on their grievance committee and immediately obtain their sanc tion or disapproval of the strike vote of the organization and report back to the president here next week. Counting of the strike vote of the 186,000 members of the brother hood will be completed this after noon. President Lee said the ma jority in favor of the strike range from 90 per cent, on some roads to 9 5 per cent, on others. The shop craft already have voted 325,000 to 48,000 to strike but have set no date, while officers of the Brotherhood of Engineers, Conduc tors, Enginemen and Firemen and the Switchmen’s unions of North America will meet here Monday to count their 259,000 strike ballots. While the sentiment of the men is reported overwhelmingly in favor of a walkout the feeling today in offi cial circles continued to be that there would be no strike. The question rests with the four unions which meet here next week and which have voted on a joint ballot. Officials of the trainmen do not believe the other unions will quit work, and will not order their men out without the support of the other unions.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 29.—Back ed by assurances of non-interfer ence from President Harding, Re publican senators renewed with vig or their campaign for a new senate cloture rule to prevent tllibustcring and obstructive debate. The principal immediate task ad vocating tile change in lime-honored senate cloture was said to be con version of a few prominent leaders, notably Senator Bodge. The pro posed new rule was meeting with such favor among the rank and file of Republicans its sponsors said, that they hoped to secure pledges from a large majority of the Repub lican membership. There Is, however, a number of influential senators, including Sena tors Hiram Johnson, RaFollette and Borah, who are opposed. Their ob jections are said to be based on the ‘ground that restriction of debate b.v majority votes, would deny a small minority the power to delay or de feat what they regard as vicious measures. President Harding's assent to the new cloture movement was reported grounded on the fact that the mat ter was one of senate rule, designed to expedite business and a matter for the senate itself to determine. -- CRIMINAL CASES ON TRIAL TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NEW BRUNSWICK.

(Fatty) Arbuckle, at lib erty today on $5,000 after a two weeks preliminary hearing on charge of murder in connection with the death of Miss Virginia Kappe, will be held on a charge of manslaughter if plans of Mathdrew Brady materi alize. Arbuckle spent last night with his wife and her mother at the home of his brother here. The indictment charge comes up October 3. Police Judge Lazarus, who heard the charge of murder preferred against Arbuckle by Mrs. Bambina Maude Delmont, considered the evi dence insufficient to hold him. He bound Arbuckle over on a man slaughter charge, however, and re leased him, inasmuch as the come dian had been indicted for man slaughter and had put up $5,000 cash | bail. Arbuckle had been in jail eighteen days. When the decision was an- j nounced the Judge was applauded and hundreds of women, among others, crowded into the Judge's chambers to shake the comedian’s hand and congratulate him. There were tears in Fatty’s eyes. His wife and mother-in-law, whom he had hastened to embrace, were crying. Later there was a glimmer of the old Arbucklc smile, particularly when photographers asked him to roll a cigarette with one hand and he re plied, ‘‘I can’t: it’s the other Arbuc kle that does that.” When Arbucklc left the court and went out on Kearney street to enter his car the street was jammed with women shouting, “Hurrah for Fat ty,” and “Good for you. Fatty," and “We’re with you. Fatty," and “Hit ’em with a pie, Fatty. Atta boy." The comedian had nothing to say to those who rushed to shake his hand save, “thanks.” Father Gross Is Removed As Priest By Bishop Walsh Rev. Francis Gross, who has been pastor of the Church of Our Lady of Hungary at 691 Cortlandt street for several years, lias been removed from his duties in that parish by Right Rev. Bishop Thomas Walsh of the Trenton Diocese of the Ro man Catholic church. Although re ports about tho city today wore that Father Gross had resigned from his charge, this was flatly denied by Father Gross when interviewed to day. According to Father Gross he was removed as priest of the parish on Tuesday last, when lie called on the bishop in Trenton to have adjusted some matters pertaining to the con struction of the new school in Cort landt street. According to Father Gross, he took issue with the bishop over the em ployment of a contractor and the labor to lie employed in building the school. The work is being done by Frank P. Priory, of Trenton, who Father Gross claims was selected by the bishop. Father Gross was never incordin ated into the diocese although male ing application for the same to the bishop. Later Father Gross recalled the application. Yesterday a delegation consisting of thirty-six members of the parish went to Trenton to see the bishop in an effort to have the differences straightened out so that Father Gross might remain as head of ftho parish. Father Gross said: “The delegation did not see the bishop and received no satisfaction from his secretary.” Father Gross gained much noto riety during the war for his very pro-German attitude and at the time the war came to a close there were charges pending against him in the federal courts concerning his right to citizenship. The charges were still pending when the war closed and nothing has since been heard of them. Father Gross is now packing his goods and will take up his residence in Sewaren, where he has leaded a home. He said that he will engage in the steamship ticket business in this city and expects soon to open his ollice here. ACTION IN ESTATES OF R. R. GROSSING VICTIMS NEW BRUNSWICK.

Senate — CONFLICTING OPINIONS Agree, However, That Ford Should Not Have Seat in the Upper House WASHINGTON, Sept. 29.—Opin ions conflicting on party lines were presented today by majority and mi nority members of the senate privil ege and elections committee and the Ford-Newberry 1918 senatorial elec tion contests from Michigan. The majority report cleared sena tor Truman H. Newberry, Republican candidate, of corruption and all other charges. The Democratic members asserted Senator Newberry was elect ed by corrupt and illegal methods and practices, with the tiling of re port the case goes to the senate. Meanwhile, it is understood, Senator Newberry will not attend the session. Recommendations of the majority report submitted by Senator Spen cer, who conducted the investigation and recount were: "That the contests of Henry Ford against Truman H. Newberry be, and it is hereby dismissed. "That Truman H. Newberry is hereby declared to be a duly elected senator from the state of Michigan, for the term of six years .commenc ing on the 4th day of March, 1919. "That his qualifications for a seat in the senate of the United States to whhrth he has been elected has been conclusively established and the charges made against him In this proceeding, both as to his elec tion and qualifications are not sus tained. Conclusions of the minority pre sented by Senator Pomerene, Demo crat, Ohio, and signed also by Sena tors King, Utah, and Ashurst, Ariz ona, were: j nat me in eguianwes coiupmui cd of do not relate to the general election but to the primary. Jlenry Ford did not receive a plurality of the votes cast in general election. We therefore find the petitioner, Henry Ford, was not elected and is not en titled to a seat in the senate of the United States.” ‘‘We find under the facts and cir cumstances of this case, corrupt and illegal methods and practices were employed at the primary election and Truman H. B. Newberry violat ed the practices act of the state of Michigan, and by reason thereof, he ought to have held or hold a senate seat in the senate of the United States and he is not the duly elect ed senator from the state of Mich igan for the term of six years com mencing on the fourth day of March 1919, and we declare his seat be declared vacant.” A separate minority report was submitted to Senator Ashurst, who declared Senator Newberry’s cre dentials were stained by fraud, and tainted by illegal expenditures of money. The testimony showed the 191K Michigan campaign "partook more of the character of an auction tnan an election." Claims of Mr. Ford to the Mich igan seat were denied by both ma jority and minority members on the same ground—that all charges against Senator Newberry related to the primary ^nd not the general «lection and it was established in the general election Senator New berry received a majority of votes. Mr. Ford’s charges of bribery, il legal voting undue influence and In timidation of voters were declared to be without foundation by the ma jority. Money expenditures in the prim ary was the point at issue in the rec ommendations. This was placed at about $19 5,000 by the majority and at least $188,568 by the minority. There was virtually total disagree ment along partisan lines as to Sen ator Newberry’s responsibility for and management of the expenditures.

An explosion occurred after Joseph Harris of Rockaway, near Morristown, the salvage company contractor, requested that some material, which appeared to he dirt, be cleaned out of one of the eight foot 3-inch pipe being loaded on a truck. The material in the pipe is said to have been gun cotton. The dead, all of South River, are: Tony Wascwoietz. i Ignatz Vigniski. Steve Washink. Steve Karsinth. A fifth man whose first, name, Basil, is only known. The seriously injured, two in number, who have been sent to St. Peter’s Hospital, are: Mike Daidiwcz. Alex Buchana. Joseph Harris, the contractor, was allowed to proceed to his home at Rockaway, after questioning by county detectives. Hii hearing is affected hy the concussion. At the time of the explosion, it i« said the men were at work carrying iron pipe from a dump heap to an automobile truck. This work, it is declared, is being done by a salvage company contractor, Harris, and tins man employed tho dead and injured. According to the report received by the prosecutor’s office, the men i were at work handling explosives, when the explosion occurred. Fly ing fragments of tho pipe were re sponsible for the fatalities, lieved to have been responsible for the fatalities. The pipes which were being load ed on the truck, were overhead pas sages through which cotton and ni- 1 trie acid passed in tho making of gun cotton and also stesim Jdpee. It is believed that some of tne gun cotton remained in tho pipes after they had been taken apart and mov ed to the dump pile. Coroners Arthur Jlillpot of Metu ehon and WiliThm Harding of New Brunowfhk. were called, and the former after an investigation gave a permit foy removal of the bodies of the dead to the undertaking es tablishment of E. Mason & Son in South Amboy. County detectives upon receipt of report of the explosion hurried to scene to investigate the matter. It is said tiiat the salvage con tractor is tho only one who can be held responsible for the outcome of the accident. The explosion fit tract e<i ine cm zenry of Suyreville, South Itlver ami vicinity. Mothers with children tag ging on behind hurried to the scene to see If their relatives had suffered. In a short time thousands of Inquisi tive people surrounded the plant, mothers, fathers, wives, sons and daughters all inquiring ns to the condition of their loved ones. First aid was rendered at the plafit. Two of the men were rushed to the St. Peter’s hospital. Five men were Instantly killed. One of the men was cut In two, another had his right and left hand torn off. Three of the men had left arms torn off, two completely out of the socket at the shoulder. One of this num ber sustained a fractured skull, an other had Ills head crushed, and the third had his face mangled and his light wrist was severed. It was hard to determine the names of the men, or to find their age. The bodies were removed to the Mason undertaking establish ment at South Amhoy to await or ders from relatives. The contractor employed the men by number, and their first names wore only used about the plant. There were about nine men about the truck when the explosion oc curred, the five dead men, two ser iously injured who are now in the hospital, the contractor, and Andrew Sutton, f’72 State street, ttiis city, wiio was driver of the truck. Sut ton. it Is said, was not injured. In the* vicinity of where this explosion occurred, there were a number of buildings during the busy days of the du Pont Powder Company. These were recently moved and torn down. The salvaging of un-needed material and the removal of buildings, has hern earthed on since the du Pont Powder Company was changed to I he du Pont Chemical Company.

' Detective Fitzpatrick obtained a statement from Mike Daldiwcz in ; St Peter's hospital. Daldiwcz told the detective that the men started work at 7:30 o'clock loading the J pipes on a truck for Perth Amboy. Harris, Daldiwcz claims, told him to knock out the TNT from a piece of pipe held by six of the other men, A and after two knocks the explosion occurred. Harris, It is said, told the men that if the TNT was not knocked out that there would be danger of an explosion in the ma chines at Perth Amboy.

Harris ordered the men to got I Ills pipe oft the truck inasmuch an it. had a bend which he wanted straightened out, and also because J ho wanted something knocked out Six of tho men hold one end, while a seventh man used a sledge hammer on the other end. The end of tho pipe opposite that held by the six men, it is said, rested against another pipe, and when the Wedge hammer struck the long pipe about n quarter of a pound of gun cotton dropped out. The meeting of the hammer and the pipe is boiieved re sponsible for a spark which reached the gun cotton and caused the ex plosion, Detective David belicf&a.
