ONE NEW ENTRY. London, Oct. 10 (By the Associated Pross). Michael Collins, Sinn Fein minister of finance, arrived in London tljis morning, completing the Sinn Fein delegation which tomorrow will confer with representative of the British government to ascertain "how the association of Ireland with the community of nations known as the Britkh empire may best be reconciled with Irish national aspirations." The Sinn Fein delegates were early at work to-day completing arrangements for the meeting.

Mr. Collins is staying with the sec retariat of the Irish delegation, the other Sinn Fein delegates being ac commodated in another residence near by. - Arthur Griffith, the Sinn Fein for eign minister, said this morning be was -delighted with rt he success of the Sinrr Feinere in obtaining the services as third secretary to the IrWi dele gation of John Chartrea, who besides being highly versed in legal matters, was chief of the intelligence section of the war oflice armaments output committee during the war and for nine years was director of the intelli gence department of the London Times.

Murphr.' the substitute, lie said, had served a liai-on officer in Athlone, where he behaved with dis cretion, no friction having arisen be tween him and the military. The Sinn Fein delegate have 'e oided not to accept any hospitality while in England, except from personal friend-. This decision is not due to hostility towards Londoners, they say, but because they wish to save them selves from being ewerw helmed with nvitations and desire to devote c moment to the work' in hand. Desmond Fit.geraki, Sinn Fein min ister ftf propaganda, said to-dav he ex pected the conference commencing to morrow would decide to issue an agreed communique daily, as was done when Eamon D valer, the Irish re publican leader, met Mr. Lloyd tSeorge London some time ago. If the Hritifdi reprecntatives have a stenog rapher present, he declared, the Sinn em delegates will claim a similar ight, and brought a man from Dub- in wnn them lor Thai purpose. Whatever decisions were reached by. he British conferee this morning were kept closely to tnemseives, an fhcial of the delegation dismissing m uiric with the statement that the matters to come under review at the rst meeting to-morrow was for the cjro4iators to determine. Another meeting of the cabinet ministers will be held to-night. That Mr. Elovd George does not ex pect the initial conversation to lie enrthy appears to be Indicated by his telling representative of the labor or ganirations this morning that he would receive their delegation at 6 o'clock on Tuesday evening to hear their pro posal relative to, the unemployic'rt rtuation. , ' ; And One Ship Withdrawn From Fish ing Vessel Race Competitors.
