The records of the Scandinavian-American bank, produced by -hb witness, also showed that on October 11, 1919, during the time that the Scandinavian-American bank was closed'and the question of its reopening was before the supreme court following the raid made by At torney General William L&nger, the bank renewed a loan of $5,300 to the Fargo.

The witness was also called upon to explain an ?ntry in the books of the Scandinavian-American bank which showed, a deposit by the Bank) of North Dakota of $20,000 on March 31, 1921, some six weeks after the bank had been placed in the hands „f a receiver by the state hank examiner.

He declared that this was a correc tion, made because the Scandinavian American bank had insufficient funds in the Baqk of North Dakota to meet a check for $20,000 which it issued to the Institution on December 4, 1920, and it was therefore necessary to correct the previous entry. Theoe were the high lights of Mr. Brevtg's testimony. In his direct ex amination by J. J.

These records had previously been brought Into court by L. C.

Change in Attitude. It is stated ln some quarters that DeValera would not go to London without these two men, while it also was predicted that he would insist upon release of other men now in terned or imprisoned in order that they might accompany him. It was pointed out that the wording of the premier's letter would make it im possible for him to refuse such a de mand. This was considered to consti tute a remarkable and significant change in the attitude of the British premier, who earlier in the year had excepted .certain Sinn Feiners from In the event that DeValera refuses the premier's invitation, it is generally Soldiers May Be Needed. In some sources it is predicted that the services of British soldiers may be needed even if DeValera consents to negotiate, as it is held that he will be unable to stop the activities of Sinn Fein riflemen without British help. Moderate Sinn Feiners are repre sented as being extremely anxious that DeValera accept Premier Lloyd George's invitation. It is said that they can see no possibility of ending the conflict under present conditions and that they fear terrible results if an intensified milit,ary campaign is begun as a result of rejection of Lloyd George's overtures. An authority .anonymously quoted by the Daily Mall in the dispatches from Dublin declared that peace would be possible if the British gov ernment agreed to permit Ireland to govern herself, excluding only matters pertaining to foreign relations, the army. n*.vy, and other strategical con siderations, and if the dx northern counties were granted by the rest of Ireland such measures of self govern ment as DeValera has indicated his willingness to concede, with the limits of an autonomous Ireland. Such a settlement, however, this authority pointed out. would involve abandon ment of the demand for complete in dependence and' might for that rea son, be repudiated by the extremists.
