BABE AND RANT
Members of British Parliament t
Vote Down All Irish
Amendments
Wore In Bad Humor Because of
Repeated Defeats in the
Transvaal
Irish Lenders Knowing Their
Race Is Again United
Are Defiant
REDMOND ELOQUENT AND CONVINCING
The debates in Parliament last week on
amendments offered to the address by
Irish members recalled the old days when
Parnell defied and Biggar ridiculed and
denounced he stolid and unfeeling ma
jority Of course the amendments were
voted down overwhelmingly for the re
putedly phlegmatic John just now is i
rampant raging and unreasoning says
Owen Roes special letter in the Chicago
Chronicle He has excuse for his moods
d
in human nature and the irony and
sneers of his continental neighbors To
have ones foremost fighters bedecked
with V Cs and other decorations
knocked out as promptly as they appear
by ignorant Dutch farmers is not con
ducive to just action besides to listen to
Irelands voice under any circumstances
or conditions would be a shock to Johns
conscience would be rank heresy in the
light of his Christian principles The
civilizing bully of mankind as John
Mitchell called him ever has been a
stranger to just or generous deeds in
political and governmental affairs in
every clime and generation the individual
vidual Englishman is often the most just
and generous of men and so the Irish
people and their representatives at West
minster feel only the usual disappoint
ment in having their demands for finan
cial and industrial redress scornfully
kicked aside They have faith however
that their opportunity is coming and
then thanks to his longunused and un
quenchable hate Paddy will get even
with John But if the Irish members had
none of their amendments approved of
they had much satisfaction and lots of
fun in their advocacy It was the procla
mation and adoption once more by the
reunited party of the militant and defiant
policy of the independent party of a dec
ade ago Just now they may not be able
to do much when the coward Liberals I
have gone over to the Tories and the
Roseberys and Asquiths have become the
puppets of Chamberlain but A general l
election is approaching and party lines
againwills clearl dFawn and the R
elgtlt6 solid Irish T vet wilt 1 counfili
a division of the Iouse as 172 <
Not In many years have the debating
strength and brilliancy of the Irish mem
bers appeared to such advantage as in the
past few days They seem to have im
bibed inspiration as well as courage by
the union of their ranks and conscious
that the Irish race the world over was at
their back they were defiant evenin de
feat and gave back rebel taunt for loyal
censure And this old land feels the
thrill of the new situation the national
pulse beats stronger and the evolution
ary elements though having no faith In i
parliamentarianism are glad to see the
big talking shop across the channel wor
ried and angered by Irish representatives
The silent men in Irish politics strange
as it may appear are really the most
active and influential for their policy
never changes and it is nearest to the
Irish heart They were the strength of
Parnell in his hours of triumph and of
stress and they will be behind Redmond
and Dillon and Healy as long as they
fight in harmony against the common
enemy and give and take no quarter
As the English cable does what Eng
lish history has always donethat is
never mentions Ireland or her champions I
except to traduce thema resume of the
stirring debates caused by Irish motions
should be interesting and particularly so
because of the high moral sense and in
tellectual force of the Irish members
taking part in the discussions John
Redmond as the accredited spokesman
of the reunited Irish party was particu
larly effective and he proved himself
worthy of the honor of leadership con
ferred upon him His amendment to the
address was as follows
But we humbly represent to your
Majesty that the time has come when the
war at present being waged in South
Africa should be brought to a close on
the basis of recognizing the independence
of the Transvaal and the Orange Free
St te
StateHis
His speech was eloquent l forceful and
the more convincing because it was free
from passion His object he said in his
opening sentences was to explain and
justify the feeling of Ireland toward the
war The sympathy of Ireland he pro
claimed was with the two South African
republics We abhor this war and we
call for its stoppage and we declare our
intention to do all thatin us lies to main
tain the independence of these two little
republics which was won by untold sac
rificeeand defended by a heroism which
is without parallel In the hiatory of the
world It has been alleged said Mr
Redmond that the real motive of Ire
lands sympathy with the Boers was an
tagonism to England There was both
truth arid untruth in the charge When
the Fag fish empire in in difficulty a feelI I
Injfof hope and satisfaction stirs through
the veins of the Irish race at home
and abroadIt it i our fault that ft
L but yours li lithe fault of the history
which you and l 6ttt Tredeceaaora have i
mode a You thought you got rid of the
Irieh question when in 1805 you over
whelmed home role by a majority of
160 Yon thought you hud got rid of it

c
itJv > f tt < itj I
Parliament becanaetitty years before
when you were engagyHW your wicked
American war a war particularly
compares with the prMiwrt war you were
confronted with thia Mate phenomenon
of the Irish seeking to faire advantage of
your difficulties and sympathizing with
your foe Some day trot perhaps far off
that Ireland you are about to make for
yourselves in South Africa you may find
rejoicing in the empirds difficulties and
sending messages of sympathy to your
foes I would urge thlsupuntry before
it is involved more deeply in this ill
fated war to beware ef jmrsuing to the
bitter end the chapter which whatever I
way the military operations may go j
whether you succeed in Atlas war or not
can only be a story fi misfortune and
disgrace ii
Mr Redmond dented however that
the sympathy of Ireland with the Boers
was even mainly goveriiiidby antagonism
closelyG
home to Ireland Itts the continued
scarcely an exaggeratiqtrto say that there
is scarcely a family in Ireland from the
poor people who live in the Dublin slums
1to the highest in the land that is not
represented in one shapeqf another upon
one side or the other at the front Irish
men take to soldiering for the mere love
of the calling more than Englishmen
and when they do get to the front a far
larger proportion of themare thrust into
dangerous positions An Irishman he
added can not help feeling a thrill of
pride at the record and heroism of the
Irish lads from Mayo tend Roscommou
who have suffered so terribly in this war
and he could not help noticing that while
the brave press correspondents paid gen
erous tributes to these Irish regiments
Gen Buller and others In command made
no such mention in their official reports
A calculation which he saw made in a
newspaper as to the Bumber of killed
and wounded of various nationalities
showed there was 120 Irishmen killed for
every fiftysix Englishmen In every
warlike the present inf which England
has been engaged the sympathies of
Irishmen have always gone in the right
direction they are novas subject to pas
sinus of greed and pride and arrogance
which obscure the judgment of English
jingoes Go back to the history of which
lost America to Englam and who led the
opposition Who inspired who planned
who worked steadfast in opposition to
that war An Irishman Burke Sheri
dan and Grattan and the mighty Irish
men of that day took precisely the same
stand in that eventful l controversy that
Irish members take upon the question of
thatf
we arrive by a natural process at our
sympathies with these republics
Wee
would be sticks or stones if we were not
aroused by this one of the finest specta
cles that the world has witnessed since
Thermopylae resistance of these two
little republics to the nnost powerful em
pire of modern timeaI think I am
speaking the sentiments of all generous
minded men in this House no matter

pire
After referring to a declaration of
Colonial Secretary Chamberlain that the
war was to establish the Supremacy of the
British in the two republics Mr Red
mond exclaimed iUlhat be so I for
one pray God that the effort will be frus
trated
It is possibly inevitable continued Mr
Redmond that the Boers may be crushed
by overwhelming numbers for as was
remarked eleven armed men are more
than a match for a man in his shirt
Boerse
have added a new page to the annals of
political and military heroism Do you
think with such a page behind them
you can blot Boer nationality You may
devastate these two republics you may
exterminate the entire male population
answery
the sister of the Prime Minister of Cape
Colony who writes
It You say that all the fighting men
with arms might have been shot Yes
but what of the wow If there were
left but 5000 pregnant South African
born women and all the jest of their peo
ple destroyed those woaieri would breed
up again a race like the first The chil

After declaring that th Irish members
cared little for the thri tt of injury to
the cause of home rut because of the
stand they had taken Afi Redmond con
