Washington, Feb. 28.—There ap

day as to Just what President Wilson
said on the Irish question to com
mittee members of congress attending
his league of nations dinner Wednes
Some committee members originally
gave as their version of the president's
expressed view on the Irish problem
that It was a question between Eng
land and Ireland and not within the
province of the league.
The president today denied he told
committee members this. Almost Im
mediately thereafter the subject arose
in the senate.
Senator Borah asked Senator Hitch
cock If President Wilson refused to
answer a question about Ireland at the
White House dinner.
"There was a question asked, but It
was not a serious question," Hitchcock
"Then does the senator say that the
president made no response to the
question about Ireland?'' Borah
"I do," Senator Hitchcock answered.
Then, at the suggestion of Senator
Williams, Hitchcock, added, "the pres
ident did say the league had nothing
to do with Internal and domestic ques
"Then the president said the league
has nothing to do with Ireland," Borah
"It must necessarily be settled be
tween Ireland and England and If that
Is so the situation Is left where It was

So it depends upon the policyholders what their dividends
shall be. Let insurance rates be what they may — it's the divi

It is noteworthy, in this connection, that the expenses of administering
the Nortlrwestern Mutual are only about half what the average stock com
