5 THE PERRYSBURG JOURNAL ''i - I J flll 'l I 1 Making Tomorrow's World By WALTER WILLIAMS, LL.D. IDan of the School of Joawallim of the Untrtnltu of Mluourt) THE NEW POLITICAL IRELAND Dublin, Ire land. 0 1 d Ire land, nearest of tho British Isles to all America and dearest to many A m o r I .cans, Is being mado new, to the joy ot thoso who yet dwell on "tho ould sod" and to tho equal Joy ot tho t h o u s a nds who have depart ed to enrich oth er lands. Thero is a now Ireland slowly rising into view upon tho world's sky-lino. Tho transforma tion la along four-fold roads. Grouped general ly tho ways of chango and progress aro political, agricultural, Industrial, social and educational. With tho first tho world is bc3t acquainted. Politi cal progress In Ireland, as interpreted by tho overwhelming majority of ""'shmon at homo and abroad, spells le Rule. Irish Parliament Assured. Ireland, always a temperament, is to uecomc also a nation. That is tho meaning of tho Homo Rulo bill. Homo Rule for Ireland, agitated for genera tions and, slnco Glandstono's day, a clogging issuo in English politics, is, apparently, to bo accomplished. Even Its opponents aro saying, In private if not in public, Let's got this thing out of tho way and give tho imporlal par liament at Westminster a .chanco at imperial affairs. Tho advocates of homo rulo aro talking of tho Work be fore tho now Irish parliament at Dub lin and how tho members of tho new parliamont will go about it For homo rulo for Ireland, stripped of all the verbiage of tho parliamentary act, merely gives to Ireland a legislature which will make local laws for Ireland. It takes Ireland out of tho placo of a District of Columbia or an Alaska, without power to enact local leglsla- Mass Meeting tlon but legislated for by congress or parliament, and puts it in tho placo of Illinois or Massachusetts or Oklahoma with Its own local law-making body. Tho analogy is not exactly accurate, but fairly so. United States of Britain. Home rulo mny bo well defined, in deed, in a Quotation from one of its ablest opponents, who, speaking on another subject and discussing tho British emplro in tomorrow's world, said: "I ennnot help thinking that as wo In England vavo now thoroughly rea lized in overy one of tlieso great com munities that each is to manage its own affairs, can out its own life, make its own experiments as freoly aa if it were an Independent political en tity as that Is a truth thoroughly un derstood by overy politician of overy party in every ono of. thes'o sovoral communities I' cannot help thinking that upon that solid ba.-'s wo shall build up something which tho world has never yet seen, which political dreamers In tho past havo nevor yet dreamed of, a coalition of free and 'self governing communities who feel that thoy aro nevor noro themselves, never more masters of their own fato, than when thoy rpcognizo that thoy aro parts of a greater whole from which thoy can draw Inspiration and strength; and that each lives its own lift) aud is most itself when it feels lUelf In tho fullest senno a self-governing entity which yet has a larger whole to look to, whoso Interests nro not alien to it, on vhom it can rest, in time of trouble, from which it draw oxperlence, to whom Jt can I whom It can aid, and from whom It can receive aid." Commons Sure to Enact Law. Tomorrow's world Is to havo a Brit ish United States, with a federal capi tal at London, it Mr. Balfour's noble dream finds realization. In tho mean time, Ireland Is to bo a self-governing division of tho present British empire. Twico tho parliamentary net effecting this result has passed, by a considera ble majority, tho British houso of com mons. Twice, by an equally decided majority, it has been rojected by tho British houso of lords. When passed a third tlmo by tho commons It be comes n law desplto tho opposition of tho lords. Tho majority party in tho houso of commons majority "par ties" is moro nccurato, as a coalition of Liberals, Nationalists and Laboritcs is necessary to form tho majority Is pledged to pass tho Act beforo another general election. Unless something unforeseen occurs, tho Irish Parlia ment at Dublin will como into being early in 19 1G or beforo. At which all Ireland will rejoice all but Ulster! Ulster's Resistance. Tho one obstaclo to tho immediato accomplishment of Home Rulo is, of course, Ulster. Ulster comprises nino counties of tho north of Iroland. Bel fast Is tho commercial center. From Belfast and tho surrounding country comes tho chief, indeed, practically tho only seriouB objection to Homo Rulo. Led by Sir Edward Carson, tho Ulstermen aro pronounced in their op position. Volunteer troops aro being drilled, a provisional government sepa rate from that, of tho rest of Ireland formed and also by the so-called Loy alists, who resist autonomy for Ire land, preparations made for the resis tance by force to the acts of an Irish National Parliament. They will not submit, they declare, to rulo from Catholic Dublin. There's tho fly in tho ointment Catholic Dublin. Tho Protestants of Ulster profess to fear some legislative or executive per secution from a Parliament at Dublin, a large majority of tho members of which will, of course, bo Catholic. Tho Catholics, on tho contrary, assert om- In Dublin. phatlcally that thero is no possibility of any such persecution and that the Imperial Parliamont in London would promptly and properly interfere wero it attempted. Should the British gov ernment yield to this resistance on tho part of Ulster, as does not now seem probable, Home Rulo for Ireland will, of course, be deferred. Settle ment "by consent" through compro mise, If any chango is mado in tho present Homo Rule, appears more like ly. That a majority of flve-slxths should not rulo seem incredible from tho American viewpoint, but majori ties aro not always conclusive in Great Britain. Orangemen Minority In Ulster. Tho Orangeman tho Protestant Ul- ctorman is really not an Irishman, but a transplanted Scotchman or tho descendant of a transplanted Scotch man. Ho brought his religious faith with him, votes it on election day, car ries it in procession at political meet ings and holds himself aloof from tho ovorwholming majority of his neigh bors. Ho is in a minority oven in tho Ulster counties, but ho has on his side tho larger sharo of the wealth, tho ccmeatron, tho culture of tho province. Appeal to Force Will Fall. Hearing tho Homo Rulo bill discuss ed at Westminster, listening to tho political addresses on tho Twelfth of July tho chief day of Ornngoisin at Belfast, and talking with Unionist and Nationalist in club and street, the conclusion is suggested that tho real root of Ulster opposition to Homo Rulo is political derangogucry and rlcallsin. The majority of tho otcji, Welsh and English voters and flvc-Blxtha of nil Ireland havo calmly decided that Homo Rulo is to bo es tablished in Ireland and tho frantio appeal to forco in Ulstor may hurt tho heads of Catholic workmen In Bolfast, but it will not stop tho sotting up ot tho Parliament at Dublin. When oho goes beyond tho stato mont of tho facta of today to suggost tho story Qf tomorrow ontranco is mado into tho realm of prophecy. Yet oven ontranco thoro must bo advqn turod if tho making of tomorrow's world is to havo full consideration. At least a glanco ncrosa tho threshold may bo taken. No Persecution, Says Asqulth. Upon tho third reading of tho Homo Rulo bill in tho Houso of Commons, Mr. Asqulth, tho Prlmo Ministor, said: "Because wo havo faith and trust in tho patriotism and common sonso of our Irish follow citizens, wo do not boliovo thoro would bo any danger undor Homo Rulo of oithor religious or political persecution or oppression." If, ho ndded, tho opposition could show thero would bo a real danger of this kind, thoy would havo not only tho Government's sympathy, but Us sup port. Tho reply of tho Ulster Protes tants is an emphatic refusal to accept tho Primo Minister's conclusion for tho reason, they say, that everything in tho past and present history of tho Nationalists justifies it in holding tho opposite conclusion. And thero the caso rests. Whether tho five-sixths of tho Irish people represented .at Dub lin are to bo bad boys cannot bo finally determined until "they get tho chanco to bo bad boys. Tho Parliamentary bill gives them tho chance. Relics of Irish Parliaments. In iho National Museum at Dublin aro tho robes worn by tho Right Hon orable John Foster (Baron Oriol), tho last speaker of the Irish Houso oi Commons, tho speaker's chair and the mace, tho symbol of legislative au thority. These will bo used by the speaker of tho now Houso of Com mons. After tho Briti-th Parliament had abolished the Irish Parliament the Irish speaker was asked to hand over the maco to tho authorities in Dublin Castle. Ho declined, saying that he would never surrender "the mace to any one but the body from whom he had received it Entrusted to the Dublin Museum for safe-keeping, it is today tho property of the speaker's descendants. John Redmond Probable Premier. Armed with tho symbol of authority tho new national assembly will take up the work of leglsjating for its own people. John Redmond, the National ist leader, will doubtless form tho first Irish ministry. He belongs by birth and training to tho landed class and all his instincts are towards modera tion.. Tho Nationalists, now a soTId body, will divide in their advocacy ol protection, free trado and other poli cies. Measures for the agricultural, industrial, social and educational amelioration of Ireland, now of ne cessity receiving scant consideration in tho Imperial Parliament at London, will have largo attention. Ireland al Dublin will administer, well or 111 only the futuro may show, her own affairs. To thoso who believe that self-government is better even than good gov ernment, tomorrow's world will be improved by the political coming ol tho new Ireland. (Copyright. 1913. bv Joseph B. Bowles.) QUICKLY RAN DOWN GHOSTS Unimaginative Physician Robbed So ciety for Psychical Research of ' Good Material. What chance has a ghost nowadays? Who can hope to keep a phantom in the family in the face of such perni cious inquisitorial activities as those of tho Boston professor who investi gated a Back Bay mansion most con vincingly reputed to be haunted? Col lier's asks. Unpleasant and forbid ding sensations had been tho por tion of tenant after tenant. Asleep and awake, they wero oppressed lth alarm, melancholy and even paraly sis. Vague but horrific apparitions floated beforo their eyes; their ears were aflllcted with terrifying noises, to their beset imaginations "tho sheet ed dread did squeak and gibber" throughout tho place. Every circumstance of ghastly mys tery was present until their arrival from tho Massachusetts Institute of technology a pedagoguo bearing the unimaginative namo of Schneider. Pro fessor Schneider asked a few ques tions, sniffed tho air, and sent for tho furnace man. Tho furnace man fixed tho furnace and that fixed the phantoms. One and all, ghoul, ghost, goblin, wraith, specter and banchee, they vacated tho premises and return ed to their homo limbo. Thoy had been born of poisonous gases escap ing from tho defective furnace. Most ghosts probably 'do leak out of bad flues and pipes. This contribu tion to domonology will commend Schneider to plumbers, and owners of haunted real estate, but will" never earn him membership in tho Society for Psychical Research. Established Motor Speod Record. A motor speed record has been es tablished between London and Monto Carlo by Mr. James Radloy. Leaving London on Monday at 1:10 in thq af ternoon, ho arrived at Monto Carlo at 3:14 on Tuesday, having mado tho Journoy in 2G hours and 4 minutes, or about 37 miles an hour, improv ing on tho attempt mado a fow weeks ago by another Englishman to tho extent of three hours and 12 minutes. Mr. Radley was accompanied by two othor gentlemen and a mechanic. His sister left London on Monday by tho 11 a. m. oxpresa and reached Monto Carlo on Tuescday, her Journey tak ing ono hour and ten mmutos more than her brother's. n EH Tin Plate Mills Menaced by New Tariff Measure. Slash In Rates Already Has Caused a Falling Off In Orders to Ameri can Factories Wales Profits at Our Expense. As tho rlso of the American tlnplato industry wns colncldont with tho do cllno of tho WolBh trade from pros perity to adversity, so will tho revival of production in Wales causo disturb ance In turn to American tlnplato mnkers. Such, at leant, is foreign opinion based on tho announcement that as a renult of tho cut in tho American tariff Welsh firms havo re ceived orders for 40,000 tons for do livery to American oil and canning concerns In tho" near future. This tariff development takes us back to tho adoption of tho McKinley tariff, when tho author of that historic up ward stop in tho policy of protection of American industries triumphed over a determined Bplrlt of opposition born of doubt and misgiving and Inserted a paragraph that gave tho foreign monopoly tho option of facing a ruin oub competition or romoving their ma chinery to the United States. Tho starting of tho first tin mill un dor the McKinley tariff was made quite a national event, with Mr. Mc Kinloy in attendance to press tho but ton, but so much uncertainty was felt at first that capital was coy about making a venture. Progress continued slow until the Dingley tariff promised gainful results and permanency, while tho expansion ot tho oil and canning industries created a demand for tre mendously Increased mill capacity. Tho menace of renewed Welsh com petition, serves to recall tho animated discussion of tho steel schedule in tho house, disclosing a firm conviction in the minds of the best informed men on the majority side that the cut in the ditty on steel and ore could not possibly affect prices except along the Atlantic shore, which conviction still persists, although tho steel industry west as well as east of the Alleghenles has been the chief sufferer. Tho sheer falling off of 50 per cent, in tho volume of orders, tho long-continued decline in prices in a strenuous effort to get down to the foreign level, and the Inability to lower the cost of production to that point and leave a profit, testify to tho effect of tho slashed schedules no less conspicuous ly than the orders for 40,000 tons of Welsh tinplate. To Satisfy the Colonel. Mr. Martin indicates aa tho condi tion on which the colonel will return to the fold, that tho party "purge" itself. No very powerful cathartic will bo, required. Let the party leadership in timate a receptive mood toward tho colonel's candidacy, and everything will be lovely, clean as a hound's tooth and pure as tho driven snow. Tho colonel has always been as practical as they make 'em. Ask Per kinB and Flinn. Democratic Blunder. Tho Democrats and their organs aro making a disastrous tactical blunder. In their purblind devotion to tho party they aro sacrificing its welfare by constituting themselves tho real calamity howlers. For tho admin istration, for tho country, for every body, the important thing is that thero should be no panic. There's no surer way to bring ono on than this continual shouting from tho housetop that "Thero ain't going to be no panic." The Squeamish One. As for Barnes, Penrose ct al., they already know how thoy can cease be ing bosses and become leaders. They need chango In nothing except Weir attitude toward tho colonel's candi dacy, and they, too, will havo become eminently desirable citizens, fit for the most fastidious bull moose to hall as friend and brother. Exchange. Meaning Bill Flinn. of course. Tho colonel himself can put It all over Bill as a mixer. Grasp Both Invisible and Visible. A public man to accomplish a great work needs faith. Ho must be tho prophet of his cause and bo ablo to grasp tho invisible things of tho fu ture which othor me'n can not see. Secretnry of State Bryan. Ho must bo able to grasp also the vlsiblo things of tho presont such as yearly subscriptions to tho Commoner and "half tho gate," things which other men can not easily acquire. Day of Reckoning on the Vay. Democracy is in for a breach of promise suit brought by tho house wives of the nation for failure to re duco tho cost of living. Not that economists thought the party could tho fallacies wero too obvious; but tho voters wero docclved and deluded and sooner or later tho party will bo brought to book. Explanation Called For.

Claiming that in a dream she saw her husband eloping with another woman, Mrs. Lillian Lamb of 'this city, mother of six stroll children, asked the pollco to search for David T. Lamb,-formerly an under taker, on tho charge of desertion. "In a dream," Mrs. Lamb told the police, "I saw my husband with anoth er woman speeding away on a train from the city.
