There are different opinions in Sinn Fein about the Terror. Some leaders condemn.it absolutely and definitely. and consider that it Is worklnsr 'he Sinn Fein cause great harm through out the world. Arthur Griffith, founder of Sinn Fein, is one of the opponens of violence.

Buenos Aires. Argentina. Sept. 4 Unions of laborers connected with port activities in Buenos Aires and other ports of Argentina have im posed upon exporters "their own pri vate export tax0 as a means of main taining extensive boycotts now in force against exporters and shipping companies, according to a complaint made by packing house establish ments here to minister of finance Salaberry At the present time more than 100 exporting firms are under boycott, in addition to the powerful Mlhanovich company, owner of most of the river and coastwise shipping of the country. A committee representing meat and hide exporters told the finance min ister that the dock laborers were re fusing to load their overseas ship ments unless the shippers made a con tribution toward the support of the union of $7 for each 200 bales of wool and S3 50 for eaeh 100 casks of tallow and like products. The delegation pointed out that these contributions could be called "extraofficial export duties." and that some of them have been de manded since last May. Over 00 Vessel, Tied Up. The boycott of the Mlhanovtch com pany has held over 200 vessels in port for six months. Efforts of the gov ernment to settle the differences be tween the company 'and the workers have not met with success. Meantime the losses to domestic commerce have been enormous. Speaking In the chamber of depu ties, a representative from the prov ince of Kntre Rlos, largely dependent upon river transportation, declared that the apparent object of the marl time workers was to obtain control of the country's water transport. "They publicly announce.' he said, "that the boycott is not a strike over wages or hours of labor They talk about the social movement, especially that in Germany, and applaud the one that has taken place in Russia, de claring that the maritime strike has nothing less for iu object than the socialization of the transport ser vices." During the months of the boycott the Mlhanovtch company has been able to return to service a few of its boats by transferring them to the Uruguayan or Paraguayan flags. ish government, which for the pres ent are minimized or laughed at. The boycott of Sinn Fein and Catholic workmen organized at Belfast by the Orangemen threatens serious results for the economic life of the country because the Catholic south is busily talking reprisals. If the Belfast boy cott persists, official action by the Sinn Fein authorities' will follow: Belfast May Get o Food. Many of the workers In Belfast who come under the anti-Catholic boycott are members of British trade unions, and these unions are being appealed to for assistance by their locked out members. A boycott of the port of Belfast, excepting for the transport of foodstnff. is already un der discussion among labor leaders in England, who declare they cannot permit religions or sectional differ ences In Ireland to deprive their members of protection. XTouDie au over tne insn railways has been getting worse for weeks past, due to the refusal of railway men to transport troops or munitions. This is beginning to spread to Ulster where local Sinn Felners are wreck ing trains and kidnaping trainmen, even in sections where they are in a small majority, and thus Increasing the fury of the Orangemen. Sir Hamar Greenwood, chief secre tary tor Ireland, the British official who is responsible to parliament for the administration of the island, summed up the situation as follows. Courts Strut Function. The "Restoration of Order In Ire land' bill that has Just passed the house of commons applies only where there is disorder The bill is neces sary, because civilian courts have failed to function, owing to terror ism exercised against Jurors and oth ers in certain areas. The govern ment's only desire Is to give to those disturbed parts of Ireland an effi cient court that will administer the law fairly and impartially. "The 71 Sin Fein members for Irish constituencies refuse to enter the house of commons, and demand the secession of the whole of Ireland from the United Kingdom and setting up of an independent republic. "That demand neither this British government nor any political party In Great Britain will listen to or con eider for a moment. Its acceptance would be fatal to the security of the empire, and I believe would be fatal to Ireland. "There are three fundamentals gov erning the situation, and they are ac cepted by every political party In Great Britain. They are (1) that Ireland must remain within the em pire, (2) that questions of defence, ports and treaties must remain under the authority of the house of com mons at fVesmlnster. fl that th si-r connives of Ulster must not be co erced. I believe that the majority of the Irish people would accept these fundamentals. "The Irish question remains pri marily a question for Irishmen, and I am glad the leading business men of both creeds, and of both Unionist and Nationalist parties, are now endeav oring to organize the moderate opin ion of Ireland. "There is political trouble in Ire land of the gravest character, and the economic ruin of Ireland is threat ened if the moderate people of that country do not unite to cave If." wroriKirc iom, py Jiccinre news paper Syndicate.
