Asquith, former Brit ish Premier, that there must be a pub ic inquiry into the reprisals and Irish military administration generally is regarded as impracticable. It is said that it would be like trying a com mander in face of the enemy. No in quiry would be complete which did not include the men in highest authority. They would either haTe to repudiate heir subordinates or admit responsi bility. Inquiry, it is urged, is impossi ble while the fight lasts.

Since it is a manu facturer of explosives which is report ed to have discovered the method of making diamonds, he said It was pos sible that experiments had succeeded in obtaining the desired pressure. • M. Polak expressed some doubt as to whether diamonds could be manu factured artificially at less than the cost of mining them.
