London, July 16----Leading merabers of the Cabinet of the Ulster Government arrived here today in response to. a sum tdons frora Sir James Craig, the North Ireland Iremier and im-1 mediately took under consideration the Sinn Fein peace pro posals that had been communicated to Premier Lloyd George by Eamoml De Valera, "President of the Irish Republic." 1 It was admitted that there may bel Borne hitch it the Unionists are obdur ate against accepting De Valera's Second Wilson condittona but It was reported that T m ' Lloyd-George was ready to "use more than persuasion" on the Illsterites to . , prevent them from breaking up the . peace negotiations. Officials believe it is unlikely that - Sir James Craig will meet the Premier .agairt on Monday. when the latter re niews his peace conversations with 1)e Valera, . " , It is understood that De Valera -and rSir James Craig are fully acquainted 'with the details of each other's pro "posals. The impression prevails that - ..toe Valera. is willing to accept Dom inion Home Rule. but insists upon a "central government in Ireland. Premier Lloyd-George has gone to ibis country home at Chequers for the rweek end. He will return early Mon "day morning to learn the result of ttbe conference of the 'Ulster cabinet tbefore he meets De Valera for their 'third conference. The Chronicle believes that the con mrersations between Premier Lloyd ?George and De Valera will be con Ptinued Monday and Tuesday and pos .eibly Wednesday. De Valera. accord . ing to the Chronicle, will probably re "turn to Dublin about tbe middle of inext week to obtin the consent of Mail Eireann (the Sinn Fein Perna anent) before meeting Sir James Craig. If Dail Eireann consents, then 'the scene will be set for- a general ,parley with De Valera and his col aeagues representing the Republicans; 'Sir James Craig arid his- colleagues ;and. Premier Lloyd George with two bother officials representing England 41.nd the British government The impression has gained strength Jaere that De Valera is the real voice . ,of Ireland. .

Police Get Complaint On Planes , Bridgeport police are ''''txp in the air" over the receipt of a complaint abmut airplane traffic in Seaside Park. Tha kiek which was registered a few days ago is the finst of its kind ever reported to the police, and the "cops" were nearly "buffaloed." If this sort of thing keeps up, the depart nient will have to organize a "flying squad" and equip the boys with reg ular aeroplanes. The man who registered the "air craft complaint" is John L. Lind holm, of 657 Central avenue. - Mr. Lindholm reported that while he was driving his automobile through Sea side Park, art aeroplane swooped down circled around him at a dis tance of about 15 feet. This flying was too close for Mr. Lindholm, anti he complained that the air machine endangered the lives of the occupants of his car. The report was duly lotted down on the police blotter at headquarters, and if a "cop" ever catches the nervy aviator on the ground he will bawl him out proper. If the flyer stays "up" hcrwever, the police are going to be out of luck- Tha nearest thing that the department has to an aeroplane, is a motorcycle and this machine is not well adapted to flying through space Supt. Patrick Flanagan when In terviewed on tha matter of a "flying squad," today, refused to be quoted, but he didn't take the affair serious ly anyhow. 'Unless more "aircraft complaints" are received, it is prob able that the Bridgeport police partment will remain .wholl3r on terra firma. for some time to come.

Through a demurrer entered by Berger's at torney last week, the law under which the prosecution was brought, Chapter 6450 and 6451 of the Statutes of Con trecticut, vras attacked as discrimina; tory class legislation and unconstitu-tional-In a lengthy brief, Assistant Prose cutor Keating replies to the constitu tional right of the legislature to en act laws, and cites inany decisions from State courts throughout the country, and some from the 'United State Supreme Court.

In his brief, Mr. Keating says in part: "The law which it is requested that this court hold unconstitutional, is the -law which imposes the most important restraint upon secular bus iness on Sunday. and gives to that day its distinct characteristics.

Liquor Law Violators To Fight Hard It is wax to the knife between 'liquor law violators and the 13ridge 'port police. Since the custoddans of paw and order started their intensive drive against saloonkeepers about two weeks ago, nearly every man who has been arrested has secured counsel and fought the case tooth and nail in the City court. Others have forfeit ed bonds, rather than take the chance of being convicted. but in every in stance strenuous efforts have been made to "get from uzder." The authorities pou't over a point of their own today, when Assistant Pres ecuting Attorney Vincent L. Keating suggested to Judge William 63. Board man that bonds for liquor law viola tors hereafter be set at $300 for the first offense, $6-00 for -the second of fense and a proportionate increase ac cording to circumstances. The matter is Ti OW being consider ed by Judge Boardman, and a de cision will probably he reached some time today. Supt. of Police Patrick Flanagan is of the opinion that bonds for first offenders should be placed at WO inasmuch 'as the max imum penalty for the first violation of the liquor laws is a fine of $200 and six months IT1 jail.

McCann and Hamberg failed to ap pear in court when their cases were called. and an attempt to call their bonds was halted by Judge Board man. 'Via Judge insisted that the men be brought-before the court for trial. It was during' the -hearing of this case that Prosecutor ,Keating made his plea for increased bonds.in all liquor cases. At the presen time, bonds were fixed at $200, and both McCann and Hamberg were released under this baiL Apprehended while carrying a quantity of whiskey in a Ford 'ma chine yesterday, Anthony Longa, of King's Highway, Southport and Mike Goga-1, of Southport, were arrested by the local police, and turned over to the Federal authorities today.

From men she had hoped for - mercy. Branding her crwn sex as "merciless," she had fought to bar women from the jury. A verdict of guilty in the first de gree, with a recommendation bý the jury of mercy, earries with it a pen alty of life imprisonment. Mrs. Kaber lay in her jail cell in a stupor when Judge Bernon arrived to receive the verdict. The court was undecided whether it would be leg-al for the jury to ren- , der a verdict while she was uncon- I scious. Unofficial confirmation of the ver diet -was received before the jury k made official report. Her counsel. Francis W. Poulson. went to her with the announcement of the verdict, in hope it would re store her. Judge Bernon announced the con victed woman would be sent to the Q hio reformatory for women at Marysville, Ohio., to spend the rest of her life. The verdict precludes all possibility of pardon. Attorneys for both sides expressed ..tisfaction with the verdict "We are pleased," said County Prosecutor Edward C. Stanton. "The woman was guilty." She will be locked where she can do no harm.
