Buffer defeat now and then, hut Is
not apt to remain defeated. The
old Idea that a political loader must
bo a moral hypocrlt has been so
severely condemned that It must bo
abandoned. Heroic the average
voter enjoyed the opportunity or
reading the dally papers and hooping
fully posted, prevloim to tin; advent
of the rural free delivery. It was
possible for dishonest persons to
mislead the publh d get away
with It, but the Union have changed
until every voter Iiiik the opportuni

Ifi mo Utile Fur Ireland
Alter a long nun mini light of
ninny years standing, home rule for
Ireland Ih Imminent, the house of
commons having passed tho bill a few
days ago by a majority of 110. It
was Immediately Mint to the house or
lords, where It went through Its flrnt
reading with tho prospects good or
tho Asqulih government securing Its
passage within the next row weeks,
in tho meaullme, however, conditions
In tho northern part or Ireland, and
particularly In l.'lster, are so serious
that opponents or homo rule are open
ly declaring ir parliament passes the
bill there can bo but ouo result, to
;irecpltnte a bloody nnd costly civil
vsr. Tho trouble Is r-tuihed by tho
nl that the Catholics piodomluatu In
llio greater part or Ireland, but In
I'lbtor tho Protestants predominate.
Tho IMster men declnro that thoy will
refuse to bo govorned by tho Catho
lics, to whom, bocaute of their pre
dominance, will ho glvou nil of the tin-
,'Oi'inul govornmont position. The
affair thus resolvos Itself Into n
church fitrugglo which for Intensity
and probable tragedy or rosults ho
not boon surpassed In a long time.
Already there has boon rioting in
Helfast and tho police havo froiiuont
ly been called out to disperse moot
which have gathered both In support
or ami antagonistic to the bill. Whe
ther this show of lorco In l.'lster will
prevent tho house or lords rroin fol
lowing tho hoiuo of commons in pass
ing tho hill hns not yet dovolnpod, but
homo rule Is nearer than It has over
boon before. Tho bill provides a sop
erato parllniont for Jrolnnd, with pov
or to pass practically any moasuro,
subject only to the npproval or the
