DUBLIN, Via London, May 18. The government plan for the settle ment of the Irish question has re ceived no good word from anybody in Ireland. Nationalists, whether supporters of John Redmond, agree in condemning the proposals. They are regarded as the worst yet put rorward and. as putting the clock back behind the position Sir Edward Carson, the Ulster leader, assumed at the Buckingham Palace confer ence in 1914. It is pointed out that they exclude six counties' en bloc without giving them a chance of voting their views. Many of the Nationalists express their opinion that the partition policy was adopted as a tactical move to defeat home rule and that once home rule was recognized aa Inevitable even the Unionist counties would vote themselves in, especially the Episcopalian Protestants, whose church is bound by many ties to all Ireland. It is further pointed out that the proposals not only prevent the Nat ionalist counties of Tyrone and Fer managh from voting themselves In, but hinder their coming in later by providing for their inclusion with the others in one unit. The home rule finance was based on the fact that Ireland cost 2. 000,000 more yearly, than she paid; she Is now paying 25.000.000 In stead of 11,000,000 and the pre mier's reference to the financial side of the situation means, it Is said, that a portion of her own money will be given to Ireland. The suggested convention of all representative Irishmen, however. is cordially welcomed by all sections of the Nationalists who regard it as based on a full concession of the home rule principle. It la thought possible, however, that the Unionists may not wish to Join in the coi vention.
