Side of Great Britain and Empire. London, Aug. 4. While government circles here profess confidence that Irish affairs are progressing toward a settle ment, there has hpen a tone of uneasiness, and even of anxiety, in many reports from Dublin during the past few days. These have been accompanied by exhortations for patience, being based upon the ground that the negotiations cannot be hurried and may not be concluded for a long time. Reports which are contradictory Report Reply Of Ulster Is Unfavorable come from Dublin and Belfast rela tive to the steps being taken to settle the relations of Ulster and southern Ireland. It has been stated, on one hand, that direct negotiations have been opened by Sir James Craig, the premier of Ulster, and Eomonn De Valera. the Irish Republican leader. It has been declared with equal cer tainty in other quarters however, that no negotiations are in progress, there being no one at present in Bel fast to conduct them,, owing to the absence of the principle ministers on their vacations. A third rumor that negotiations are in progress between Dublin and Bel fast, but are being carried on through an intermediary whose identity has not been indicated, is also current Reports relative to the attitude of Ulster are similarly contradictory. One account states there is a com plete deadlock between Dublin and Belfast, owing to Ulster's absolute re fusal to take any hand in the govern ment's plan for Irish peace but this is unconfirmed, and it is elsewhere stated that Ulster has accepted noth ing and rejected nothing, and that her final attitude is yet to be ascertained. Sir James Craig left London for Belfast last night after receiving a memorial from a targe, number of members of the House ot Lords and Df Commons to commemorate his resignation from the tower house of . (Continued on Page Six) Police WatcK For Governor; : Sheriff To Act Springfield, 111.. Aug. 4 The city police of Springfield went into action today, for the first time in the "pas sive pursuit" of Governor Len Small, of Illinois. . ,A detail of policemen were under orders to watch each incoming train for the government. They were not specifically instructed to arrest him, but were to notify Sheriff Mester of the governor's arrival. Three war rants charging the state's chief execu tive with misuse of state interest funds were held meanwhile by the sheriff. The position of the sheriff has not changed in regard to service of the warrants. If anything, his office is more determined than ever to obtain service, the instant the governor ar rives in Springfield. "I'll serve the warrants," was the sheriffs comment. Sheriff Mester is a giant in statute, ranging above six feet. He is power ful physically and has a typical fight ing jaw. He seldom smiles and creates the impression that he would go into action like "chain lightning." The opinion of Springfield is best expressed in the comment of one citi zen. It is: "If Mr. Nester goes after the gover nor, he'll bring him back." lOOTE&RSOLD; PIjAYS PINOCHLE Defiance, O, Aug. 4 Francis Mc Kue today celebrated his 100th birth day, ,by playing a game of pinochle with ' his sons. Dublin, Aug. 4. By The A. P.) A full meeting of the Irish Republi can parliament is to be called. The official announcement of the call, with the date for the meeting will be published in tonight's issue of the Irish Bulletin. It is reported the reply of Ulster to overtures by the inn Fein has been received, and is not favorable. The call for- the meeting of the parliaments, with all members pres ent, involves the release from prison of 25 members of this body, and it has been declared the government is willing to facilitate their attendance. The belief had been expressed among the Irish leaders that there was no use in summoning the par liament until the attitude of Ulster had been finally defined. The inference in political circles here, therefore, ia that the answer to Ulster has been received. This answer is reported to be tin favorable, the Belfst leaders declin ing the Sinn Fein overtures, although these overtures had the sympathy of Xhe British government ,Jt is said.

Des Moines Dependent Upon Buses Des Moines, la., Aug. 4 Des Moines today is entirely dependent upon motor buses for transportation. Street . cars stopped at midnight in compliance with an order issued Toy the Federal court. Sixty motor buses of the Des Moines Motor Bus Association were on the streets early today in an at tempt to take care of the early morn ing traffic. Trucks and other ve hicles were pressed into service in the emergency. It is estimated that more than 100,000 persons travel on public con veyances in Des Moines daily.

Fortunately the obstruction was no ticed by a freight engineer, and was removed from the rails a few minutes before an express train passed the spot. Railroad and city police were noti fied of the attempt to wreck the train last night, and are now endeavoring to ascertain the identity of the parties responsible. Three men are said to have been seen near the viaduct just before the arrival of the police, but the trio fled at the approach of the officers. Great Britain Intends To Keep Her Position As Mistress Of Seas Kerensky Sees New Revolution Paris, Aug. 4 The prediction that a new revolution in Russia will soon overturn the Soviet government, was made today by Alexander F. Keren sky, former Socialist premier of Rus sia. Kerensky was received in audience by Premier Briand and they discussed the Russian situation at length. Kerensky said he was anxious to re turn to Russia to resume leadership of the Democratic party, which has continued active against the Reds disseminating vast quantities of pro paganda.

The fund will be raised by popular subscription among the mem bership of the order. ' "Pbpe Benedict has requested this activity on the part of the Knights of Columbus to conserve faith and aid in the mental and physical de velopment of Italian youths," said Supreme Advocate Joseph C. Pelle tier of Boston. "It is our aim to go into Italy and introduce American welfare work, to repay Italy in part, the debt laid upon America when Columbus, the great Italian, found this western world and made it possi ble for Christendom to extend its sphere." Air. Pelletier added that it was im probable that the Knights of Colum bus would extend its organization proper into Italy, saying that the im mediate plans called for the estab lishment of an American service cen ter in Rome, under the patronage of Pope Benedict. Supreme Knight James A. Flaher ty announced that Peter Krantsze of Chicago, counsel at Luxembourg, had telegraphed the first donation, $5,-000- The closing session of the conven tion today.

There have been reports that the town of Nador, south of Melilla, has been evacuated by Spanish troops and occupied by Moroccan rebels, but it is declared in official circles that there is no confirmation of these rumors. An official statement issued last night declares fires continue at Nador. The Moors are again bombarding Mount Arruit, and General Navarro is said to have sent word to his superior of ficers that he hopes to defend his posi tion if reinforcements arrive without delay. . . - UNUSUAL CHARGES AGAINST WIFE On the charges of desertion and habitual intemperance, John R.

Great Brit ain his no Intention of relinquishing her position of mistress of the seas at the forthcoming Washington dis armament conference. This is the interpretation placed today in high naval tuatters here on the action of the British admiralty and House of Commons in voting " to go ahead with the immediate con struction of four powerful- new bat tleships, of the super-hood type. The acquisition of these great dreadnaughts will allow Great Brit ain to retain her naval supremacy, which was seriously endangered by the American and Japanese .building programs. Should England have stood still in naval building and America and Japan completed their present programs, the three greatest naval powers in the world would have gathered around the conference table in Washington on nearly an even footing. As It is. Great-Britain will enter the conference with the greatest navy in the world, and then fight for "proportionate reduction," which, if adopted, will permit her to emerge from the conference still the world's leading naval power The propor tionate reduction plan would de crease navies in proportion to the strength with which they entered the conference, leaving the relative posi tions unchanged, and this is the pol icy which American naval experts Great Britain to support here next autumn. The attitude of the United States toward this plan of reduction has not been made clear, nor has that of japan. Reduction In Wages At G. E.

Though all roads into this city were guarded un til an early hour this morning, none of the liquor reported to have been smuggled in at Sachem's Head was located. Anastasio, who was arrested by federal officers, will be arraigned be fore U. S. Commissioner Bernard Lynch on a charge of violation of the Volstead act. In addition, a charge of smuggling will undoubtedly be brought against him. The liquor seized in his place was marked "Hill & Hill, American Whiskey," and had 'been shipped toy Silas Rosenfeld. of Owensboro, Ky., on April, 1921, cfor export to the "B. P. Co., Nassau, Bahama Islands," and apparently re turned to this country. This evidence may prove of importance in the ef fort of government internal revenue officials to unearth the "Million Dol lar Whiskey Ring," which is said to have been responsible for rum run ning activities between the Bahamas and this country. 24 Victims Of Tuberculosis In Last 2 Months Tuberculosa has claimed 2 4 victims in this city during the months of June and July.

Jitney M All Naples Gathers Pay Last World Naples, Aug. 4 (By the A. P.) Patrician and plebian Naples gather ed early today at the basilica of the church of San Francisco diPaola in anticipation of witnessing the funeral of Enrico Caruso, the world famous tenor, who died here on Tuesday. The edifice, situated in the southern part of the city, near the hotel where the great singer breathed his last, was decided upon as the last scene in the drama of the tenor's life late yesterday, after ing Victor Emmanuel had given permission that it might be used for this purpose. As soon as word reacHed Naples that the basi lica had been set apart for the fun eral, workmen were engaged to con struct a great platform to accommo date, the 400 singers selected to as sist in the last requiem. In the cen ter of the basilica was erected a large catafalque on which the coffin would be laid. Representatives of the king and the royal family, the Italian government, the municipality and the prefecture were appointed to attend the services, and the United States, in which coun try Caruso rose to his greatest tri umphs in the lyric arts, had instruct ed officials to appear at the funeral. The crowds which on Tuesday filed before the bier of the dead singer were eclipsed yesterday, when thou sands gathered at the hotel Vesuvius to pay their last respects to Caruso. So large was the throng that -it was deemed advisable to remove the body from the death chamber to the hall of the hotel, which was changed for the oeasion into a chapel. About the body were placed flowers sent by friends and admirerp of the dead man, and the hall was transformed by them into a bower of exquisite Deauty. Titta Buffo, the Italian baritone, who has in recent years achieved fame in America,- arrived during the day, and hastened to the hotel. He was an intimate friend of Caruso and insisted upon helping to transfer the body to the temporary chape!'.

Rumors have been current lately to the- effect that if the Connecticut Company wins in its fight to prevent the jitneys from running they will eventually tear up their tracks and substitute buses for trolley cars. This story seems more probable because of the fact that for the past three weeks the traction company has been operating a certain number of buses in connection with the street cars. The bus routes that the company is running are to outlying points, the purpose being to thus extend the service by means of transfers be tween buses and trolleys.

Deny Clerks Have Taken Cut In Pay New Haven. Conn., Aug. 4 A statement by R. G.

Bardo of the company yesterday, to the effect that the freight clerks group of employes had accepted a new" wage scale carrying a reduction. Mr. Stearns says that the matter of acceptance or rejection of the pro posed schedule is to go to the em ployes for a referendum ballot. He says that a letter sent by him to Mr. Bardo on July 25 stated that the em ployes represented in the brotherhood contend, "that there can be no justi fication to warrant the reduction rates of pay as established under decision Number 417 of the United States Rail road Labor Board in as much as the actual living 'costs have not been re duced below living costs on which in creases were based under its decision number 2, issued July 1920.
