Gough and His Fifty-Nine Comrades (By Associated Tress) London, Mureil 2."?.-The government today published its promised state iru nt of its dealings with the revolu tion ofilcers of the Third Cavalry bri gade and the house of commons held a heated and disorderly session. Be tween tlie documents presented and the various statements drawn from the cabinet ministers, vital fact3 of the affair were made clear. They re \'eal a comedy, or tragedy, of errors perpetrated by Colonel Seely, secre tary of war, and Sir Arthur Paget, commanding thc troops in Ireland. Col. Seely took all tba H1?nje or. . iiiuiseif. He frankly declared ho had made a great mistake. His written assurance to General Hubert Gough, that the government mu: i retain its right io use all the forces of the crown in Ireland or elsewhere to maintain order and support the civil powers ir. the ordinary execution of their du ty, but bas no intention whatever of taking advantage of this right to crush political opposition to the policy or thc principles of thc home rule bill, was given without the knowledge of the cabinet and contrary to its pol icy. Resignation Tendered. Tho war secretary tendered bia re signation to Mr. Asquith, but tbs pre mier refused to accept it. The gov ernment has withdrawn Col. Seely's guarantees, according to a statement house of commons that tho govern ment's decision would be made known to General Gough tomorrow. Thus the situation with respect to General Gough and his 59 comrades, who sent in their papers, is still in a state of BUspense. The most important revelations of the day were that the government did plan an important military and naval demonstration on Ulster. Winston Bpencof Churchill, first lord of the admirality confirmed reports that ho had ordered the third battle squad ron and torpedo ilotiiia to Irish wa tci'S, but explained ??mi vvlimi ibu mili tary arrangements had been made out ho countermanded the orders by wire less, an explanation which the Union ists received with Jeers. The blunder General Paget made, appears to have been in giving a prac tical ultimatum to officers of tho cav alry brigade, to say whether they would take active service in Ulster or accept dismissal. Tho cabinet Monday framed a gen eral statement of the officers' position and duty under the law, and f ol. Seoly freely admitted that his error Was In yielding to General Oough's demand for a written assurance that the army would not be used to sup press thc covenanters. . Premier Asquith's statement that the officers should return to their du ties unconditionally, lt ls declared, were made in good faith, 6ince - he learned of Colonel Seely's address to the cabinet memorandum only yester day afternoon. The prime minister made plain to the house of commons the government's position regarding the army, declaring he would not aa sent to tho claim of any body of men In the service bf the crown to demand assurances of what they would be required to do in circumstances that bid not arisen. The resignation of Colonel Seoly followed quickly after publication to day of the " -lite Paper" giving details of tho crisis n tho British :rmy, whose offlecers refused tr? ;.?*rticipau: in ac tive operations against the tihnbt tants of Ulster, who had prepared to offer armed resistance to introduction or home rule. Col. Seely, in his valedictory address to the house of conimons, denied that Klag George had taken any Initiative of any kind in tho army crisis. He said: "Thc suggestion ls absolutely with out "oundatlon in the broadest nensc. Hts Majesty took no Initiative of any kind," Lord Morley, in his spooch In the house of hirds, made tba Important ad mtkslonthat tba two unauthorised par agraphs added to the Gough letter wfr? drafted by Col. Seely. The con servative morning papers, comment ing on this admission, contend that Lord Morley, who holds the office Of Lurd President of the consul, also had resigned. .The-view of the Liberal morning papera is that though yesterday was the blackest day the government had experienced tn Ks- whole existence, now the air has clear ea and the gov ernment ia rehabilitated and ls In a stronger position ?han ever.
