T.mdrn AuiT. 19 The British srovernment in its Irish peace offer had conceded everything it was possible to con cede, Premier Lloyd-George declared to the house of com mons today in his expected statement on the Irish peace negotiations. . It embodied the largest measure of freedom ever offered Ireland, he said, and he hoped the Irish leaders would not reject it "and take the responsibility of renewing a conflict which would be robbed ol all glory ana an S'""uc " overshadowing horror. Provision had been made, he said, for the summoning of parlia ment on 48 hours' notice if nego tiations broke down and the pros pect of .peace became hopeless. He hoped, however, that reason would prevail and the government's de sire for an ending of the long mis understanding between England and Ireland would be realised. The prime minister's words were paralleled in the bouse ot lords by Lord Curson, the foreign secre tary, as to the government's offer having alrady gone to the limit. All that could be given without compromising the safety of the realm, the sovereignty ot the crown and the dignity of the em- bv the without a record vote, commit teemen were said to have held It would be a dangerous precedent to establish. Practically all committee mem bers were reported to have favor on tahiine the measure which I want to make it clear, ' ton ttnued the prime minister, "that the government did not pu' forth haggling terms, but put forward everything they could posMbly concede to purchase peace and the good will of the Irish people. In Ireland itself, so far as 1 can see. the doubt is not so much M to the Under the cover of darkness sometime Wednesday or Thursday night, thieves operating with a motor truck entered the home of Mrs. William Patrick, a half mile north ot 8akta in Polk county, on the Wallace road, ransacked the place and removed everything In the house with the exception of the kitchen range and dining room table, according to Chief of Police Verden M. Moffltt of Salem, who was called by Polk county officials to assist in the case this morning. Just what the value of the arti cles taken by the thieves will amount to the officers are unable to estimate, as Mrs. Patrick and her daughter, Rose Bodayle, are at Newport, where they went several days ago to spend their vacation. During the absence of Mrs. Pat rick and Miss Bodayle a friend, Byran Gibson, employed by the Postal Telegraph company in Sa lem, has been going to the Patrick place each day to see that every thing was all right. This morning reported the theft to Sheriff John Orr at Dallas, who sent Deputy Sheriff Imlah to Investigate. Investigation revealed the tracks of the truck where It had been drawn up beside the fence in front of the house. The fence had been broken down, Indicating that the thieves had carried the furni ture and other articles out of the house and across the yard. When Mrs. Patrick left she had the electric power turned off, and the burned matches with which the floors are strewn Indicate by what light the thieves worked. Everything of value In the house was taken, Including furniture, diehes, silverware, clothing and other articles. Most of the stolen articles were new (he officers believe, as Mrs. Patrick but recently moved into the house from her former borne in Dallas.
