which was dispatched to Dublin early
to-dav. follows:
"Sir: His majesty's government has
given close and earnest consideration
to the correspondence which has passed
between us since their invitation to
I'lv ou to send aeiccrates 10 a conierenee
at Inverness.
"In spite of their sincere desire for
' peace, and, in spite of the more con
riliatory tone of your latest communi
rations they cannot enter into a eon
forence upon the basis of this corre
spondence.
f 'Notwithstanding vour personal as
suranee to the contrary, which they
rnuch appreciate, it might be argued
4h future that the -ceptance of
conference, on this basis had involved
them in a recognition which no Brit
ish government can accord. On this
point they must guard themselves
sgamst any possible doubt. There is
tio purpose to be served by any tur
ther interchange of explanatory and
Argumentative communications upon
this subject. The position taken up by
rif maicstys government is fundamen
tal to the existence of the British em
pire, and ther cannot alter it.
"My colleagues and I Remain, how
's f ver, keenlv anxious to make, in co-op
'e ration with vour delegates, another
determined effort t explore every pos

discnssioa.
"The propo!a!s which we have al
ready made have been taken bv the

dcavors for reconciliation and settle
mcnt are no empty form, and we feel
that confidence, not correspondence, is
the most practical and hopeful way to
n understanding such as we ardently
dvire to achieve.
, We therefore send you herewith a
fresh invitation to a conference in Lon

people whom you represent with a view
to ascertaining how the association of

FROM
IRELAND
ALL AGREE FORD
NOT ELECTED
And All Declare Too Much
Money Spent in Michi
gan Election
REPUBLICANS VOTE
TO SEAT NEWBERRY
While Democrats Say He
Was Elected By Cor
rupt Methods
Washington, D. C, Sept. 21. Opin
Song conflicting along party lines were
presented to-day by the majority and
minority members of the Senate pnv
ileges and elections committee on the
Ford-Ncwberrv 1918 senatorial elec
tion contest from Michigan.
The majority report cleared Senator
Truman IL Newberry, the Republican
candidate, of corruption and all other
charges and recommended that he be
legally seated. The Democratic mem
-bers on the contrary, asserted that
Senator Newberry was elected by "cor
rupt and illegal methods and prac
tices" and recommended that his seat
be declared vacant.
With the filing of the reports the
cae now goes to the Senate for final
decision, which will probably not be
made for several weeks. In the mean
time, ft is understood, Senator New
berry will not attend the Senate se
gions. ,
On onlv two major Issues were the
Republicans and Democrats in har
mony in the report filed to-day. They
agreed that Henry Ford, the Demo
cratic contestant, had not been elected
and was not entitled to the seat from
Michigan. They also agreed that too
much, money had been spent in the
Michigan "primary. The Democrats,
however, contended that Senator New
berry was responsible personally for
the expenditures while tie .Republicans
held he was not.
. Recommendations of the majority
report, submitted by Senator. Spen
cer, Republican, Missouri, who con
ducted the committee investigation and
recount, were: ; -
"1 That the contest of Henry Ford
against Truman II. Newberry be and
it is hereby dismissed.
"2 That Truman H. Newberry is
hereby declared to be a duly elected
senator from the stie of Michigan
for the term of six years commencing
on the fourth day of March, 1919.
"3 That his qualification for a seat
in the Senate of the United States,
to which he has been elected, has been
conclusively established and the
charges made against him in this pro
ceeding, both as to his election and
qualification are not sustained.
Conclusions of the minority, present
ed by Senator Pomerene, Democrat,
Ohio, and signed also bv Senators
King, Utah, and Ashnrst of Arizona,
were:
"First: That the irregularities com
plained of do not relate to the general
election but to the primary. Henry
Ford did notreceive a plurality of
the votes cast at the general election.
We, tberefore.'find that the petition
er, Henry Ford, was not elected and
is not entitled to a seat in the Sen
ate of the I'nited States.
"Second: 'Ve find that under the
facts and circumstances of this case
corrupt and illegal methods and prac
tiees were employed at the primary
election and that Truman II. New
berry violated the' corrupt practices act
and "the primary act of the state of
Michigan and that by reason thereof
he ought not to have or hold a seat
in th Senate of the I'nited States
and that he is not the dulv elected
senator from the state of Michigan
for the term of ll years commencing
on the fourth dav of March, 1!1!, and
we recommend, therefore that hi seat
be declared vacant."
A separate minority report also wj
submitted by Secretary Ashurst, who
declared Senator Newberry's creden
tials were "stained bv fraud and taint
ed by illegal expenditures of money."
The testimony showed, lie said, mat
the 191" Michigan campaign "partook
more of the character of an auction
than an election."
Claims of Mr. Ford to the Michigan
seat were denied by both majority
and minority mem hers on the same
ground that all charges against Sen
ator Newberry related to the primary
and not the general election and that
it was established conclusively that in
the general election Senator Newberry
bad received a tnejority of the votes.
Mr. Ford's charge of bribery, illegal
voting, undue influence and intimida
tion of voters in the general election
werti do Is red by the majority to be
without foundation.

outings and meetings, alternating in
each city each year. As such gatherings
have not been held for a long time it

joint meeting of the two associations in
which business conditions and plans

cussed.
Quincy is the birthplace of the gran
ite industry in the United States, the
Quincy quarries being the oldest in the
country. Granite men of the Massachu
setts city like-tetelHhctory that the
first railroad ever built in the Lnited
States was built in Quincy for the
granite industry. It was a short lino
from the quarries to the waterfront
and was used to carry the stone to the
ships. Bunker Hill monument- in
Charleston n, a part of Boston, is a
product of the Quincy quarries. ,
