OFFICIAL COUNTY AND CITY PROCEEDINGS
DeValera has rejected the Dominion Home Rule proposal
offered by Lloyd George. DeValera declares that the condi-
tions imposed constitute interference in Irish affairs and con-
trol which cannot be permitted.
Premier Lloyd George replies that there can be no com-
promise on the question of the right of Ireland to secede from
her allegiance to the king. "Our proposals present to the Irish
people an opportunity such as never has dawned in their his-
tory before. We have made the proposals in a sincere desire
to achieve peace, but beyond them we cannot go," said the
British premier in his letter to DeValera. And there the mat-
ter lies just now. If both sides adhere to their present position,
an agreement is impossible.
Lloyd George has offered to Ireland a status identical with
that of Canada. DeValera will accept nothing short of com-
plete independence. The tones of all correspondence is of a
conciliatory nature and there lies the only hope for further
negotiations. Ulster has said nothing. Whether she would
be satisfied with her position in the event of Ireland becoming
a dominion, she has not said. Doubtless she will say nothing or
do nothing to hamper the negotiations until they are definitely
accepted or rejected. If accepted, Ulster then would undoubt-
edly try to find some method of obtaining the recognition she
In the meantime, it looks as if DeValera, now having ob-
tained a large part of the loaf, will hold out for all of it, and
it looks as if Lloyd George has given all he will give.
Here's the idea. There are two mighty good ways to kill off your
favorite town. One is to stand on the street corner and rave about this be-
ing "the best little old town in the state"and' never turn your hand to do
one thing to make it all that you say it is. The other is to stand on the oppo-
site street corner and criticize everything done. Growling about the taxes
is also a helpful method in the ruining process in ease the first two sugges-
tions don'(^ work as speedily as you think they should. To be an effectual
town-killer, by any means whatsoever, you must have a definite aversion
to anything that looks like working for the public welfarethat is absolute-
ly essential.Redwood Falls Gazette.
