as to the Future ofii Ireland t r If Allowed SelfGovcrnmcnt t She Would Bo Prosperous and Happy The Time Can Not Bo Far Off TVcnn Hor Claims Must Bo iI Considered NEVER BECOME ENGLISH PROVINCE Shall Ireland then be free The Prime Minister of England has announced that the cause of home rule Is dead and that there is no possibility of its revival He condemned Gladstone for having ever taken up that cause but he has said nothing of the dealings of his own colleague Lord Carnarvon with Tarnell on that very question of home rule I could tell some interesting things about that chapter of history too but my only concern at present is to call attention to Lord Salisburys prediction about home rule in order that it may not be forgotten when the day comes when it shall be proven false says Justin McCar thy in the New York Journal The first line which I have taken as the title for this article belongs to the refrain of a poem which was very popu Jar in Ireland during the movement of 48 and since and is itself a translation from an old Irish song I am glad to have an opportunity of expressing my opinion as to the future of Irelandwhether Ireland will ever be free My own firm convic tion is that Ireland is destined to be free that is to have all which is necessary to constitute the freedom of a people One of the great developtmens of modern political life is the recognition of the doctrine of nationalities the doctrine which teaches that every nationality is happiest and best ordered according as it is allowed the freedom to develop its own highest gifts and capacities material intellectual and moral in its own way On this principle the United States of Anre Ica are heldtoether and form plirtI of one great republic each State man aging its own local affairs for itselfand all combining to legislate for the great interests which are common to all On this principle Canada has been governed since her rebellion at the opening of Queen Victorias reign compelled the attention of the English public and Parlia ment to her miserable condition and a sudden light of inspiration enabled the Government to intrust the ordering of her future arrangements to a man of genius Lord Durham who set up the home rule system there and thus found ed the prosperous contented and loyal Dominion of Canada The same principle hits made the Australasian Colonies what they are the strong prospering selfruling States of a great Empire It has always been to me a matter of wonder how intelligent Eng lish public men on either side of the political field can still shut their eyes to the fast that this is the principle that must be applied to Ireland if Ireland is ever to be a strength and not a weakness companion and not an enemy to Eng LIIIa I do not believe that there is in heart of Ireland any passionate yearning for an absolute and lonely Independence of a small Atlantic island severed from political connection with any other State system Half an ordinary lifetime has passed away since John Bright de clared that Ireland would be happy contented P and prosperous if she could only be loosed from her moorings in the At lantic and become a State of the great American republic I am convinced that Ireland sow would become prosperous and happy if only she were allowed to be a selfgov erning member of the British Empire Nothing less will ever content her and I am ready to say that according to my deliberate conviction nothing lees ought to content her She can never become a mere English province ruled from Westminster The history the traditions the ways of the two peoples the English and the Irish are too unlike to admit of their fusion into one system of adminis tration Moreover there is a magic in the principle of selfgovernment which brings out all that is wisest moat just and Most progressive In the intellects of peoptsandwe find this fact illustrated all through the history of the civilized world This then is the freedom which I be liege Ireland is destined to enjoy and without ichl maintain that site ought not to be satisfied liar attainment of it is only according to my strong belief a question of time and possibly even of accident I am more anxious to express my opinions on this subject because r Sy rybody who knows anythingabout sec and I hope I am known tOa good raay people la the United Statse mast know that tam not a fatwtialaml Irre concilable extremist norpossible chanee of a geauise union be twe a i laud wd Ireland I have 11 Lrstrong faith In the ultimate HKC M of any cause which maker its appeal to the intelligence the good sense and the manhood of the great majority of the Tj R Ibpoopk I feel MtUka that in the case of Irelands claim to national selfgovernment such an appeal will triumph beforelong- Educated Englishmen who are not deeply concerned in politics are already beginning to understand how much there is valuable to art and to literature in the purely national traditions and feelings of the Irish people Just at present our political cause is suffering from the kind prin1clplesthat followed almost inevitably in Eng I lish public life when Gladstone was sud denly withdrawn from its guidance That COL BENNETT YOUNG Chairman Reunion Committee period of reaction is itself destined to pass away and to be reacted upon and then the claims of Ireland to be allowed to manage her domestic affairs for herself will once again find thorough recognition from the whole Liberal party and will begin to get recognition from the Con servative party as well If I had the authority to state the case of Ireland my statement of it would be that Ireland demands the right of admin stering her domestic affairs herselfand is ready on that condition ta send her representatives into the Imperial Parliament at Westminster to speak for her on all questions that concern the common interests of the empire The time can not be far off when all reasonable Eng lishmen will begin to see that only thus and not otherwise can any true solution be obtained for the troublous problem which has so long perplexed the statesmanship of the two countries Why any reasonable Englishman should object to such a solution or be afraid of it or even see anything doubtful about it passes my understanding and I am sure the time is not far distant when all rational Eng lishmen wjll wonder how the objections aliathearsand thedoubts could have found existence in the minds of men who were thought worthy to conduct the statesmanship of a great empire- I answer then the question which I used as the title of this article bquot ing one of the closing lines of the same poem Yes Ireland Ireland shall b- efreethe free and willing partner on fair and equal terms in a great imperial system UNITY IN SIGHT

membership and Presidency of the Board of Park Commissioners not 1onany charge of malfeasance or mis conduct but on the technical1l 1 charge of usurpation on the I ground that he forfeited his mem bership in the Park Board by ac cepting a commission in the volunteer army of the United States iin the SpanishAmerican war is likely to fail of success and will be re garded as evidence that the Coun cil is prompted more by a desire to oust Democrats to make room for their party officeseekers than by any aim for the public good or any sense of patriotism Not only has this claim in other cases urged by partisans of both political parties been unsuccessful in Congress the United States Senate and met with general popular disapproval bur t r the courts have already decided iin Gen Castlemaus case that he did not forfeit the office of Park Commissioner J or President of the Boar I by accepting a commission in th United States volunteer forces and that the candidate nbminated by the Republicans and voted for last November to fill such alleged vacancy was not entitled to take Gen Castlemans place on the boardA decision was rendered by the United States Senate regarding twoWet Virginia Senators to whose seats the Democrats nomi Hated and elected successors whom itwaai contended should have been allowed to vote for United State Senator but as they were denied this the

corrup tion and crookedness in City Halll 1affairs and intimations that the Council would purify and straight elen s I exposureland officials the Castleman move is L disappointment and a weak starter It does not verify charges made 1against the administration of city affairs since there is no charge against Gen Castleman except- S technically that he is not entitled hold and draw the salary of his of fice Besides it is well known that there are Republican hangersonI who have been striving for places of any kind on any pretense regardless of the methods The attempt to oust an official on a mere technicality to say nothing of the unpopularity to thrust polit ical issues into the Park Board will meet as it should popular con demnation The Council will do better if it attend to its proper business of legislating to further the citys interests instead of ham pering matters by continually pick ing flaws quibbling with other branches of the city government keeping up a continuous wrangle on partisan lines retarding public work that the people want It seems their real purpose is political thunder for the next election to give certain aspirants an ofA Economy andTefornr are commend able but may be carried to a point to disgustjthe people and the Coun cil has about reached that point Russia has acquired a port iin Corea despite Englands intima tions that it should not be and now instead of protesting or an nouncing opposition thereto she i trying to urge Japan to do it in stead Russia seems unconcerned and is preparing to occupy the port just as she has occupied others In fact Russia and France seem to dividing up the Chinese and adjacent seaports and territory to suit themselves sometimes con suIting other nations and allowing them concessions or privileges in trade but apparently forgetting that England exists despite her boasts against iinterventions of any power in her affairs or disregard of her trade rights and commercial in terests and urging Englishmen to
