SPLIT OF SINN FEIN
Leader Says Organization Is
RAID CHARGE REITERATED
Arthur Griffith Proposes That U. S.
Supreme Court Pass on Re
DUBLIN, 0A. 7. Reports that the
Sinn Fein organization has become
divided against itself were vigorously
denied here today by Arthur Griffith,
leader of the organization, during a
long interview with the Associated
Press. He reiterated charges he' re
cently made that raids of reprisal
were a result of "calculated policy of
British government officials,", and
challenged Sir flamar Greenwood,
chief secretary for Ireland, who re
cently denied these charges, to sub
mit them to an investigation by an
Impartial tribunal to be appointed by
the British government or the United
States supreme court.
"There will be no settlement except
upon the basis of Irish independence."
Mr. Griffith said. "The British gov
ernment authorities are making a
special effort to terrorize the Irish
people and force them to abandon
their claim for independence before
the British parliament reassembles
and the American presidential elec
tion is held."
No Pronoun I Made.
Asked if the Sinn Fein would enter
Into negotiations with the British
government, he replied:
"The government has made no pro
posal to us and is trying to ignore
our existence. We have a mandate
from our people to set up a republic
and until that mandate is withdrawn
7e have no authority to accept any-
'thing less than complete indepen
"Is there a stale of. war- in Ire
land?" the correspondent asked.
"Ireland in 1918." Mr. Griffith re
plied, "peacefully and constitutionally
registered its vote for independence,
according to the principle of self de
termination, enunciated by America
and accepted by Kngland in her hour
of need. Since then England has
been seeking to overcome- the ballot
by the bullet. She is waging against
'Ireland an economic war, reinforced
by murder and arson.
llniial Warfare Chanced.
"Kngland entered1 Ireland with
methods of warfare far more brutal
than Germany used in Belgium."
One of the most sensational charges
Mr. Griffith made was that many un
tried political prisoners had been
"tortured in prison with .medieval
methods to force them to pive false
Information against Irish leaders.''.
mUSil CONCESSION INTIMATED
Sinn Kcln Said to Favor Broad
Measure of Dominion Home Iluie.
I,0.TON, Oct. 7. Leaders of the
Sinn Keln have intimated that al
though they desire complete separa
tion of Ireland from Kngiand, they
would not oppose a broad measure of
dominion home rule if it van be
proved a ma.iority of the Irigh people

intimation, the newspaper declares,

made by the Irish peace council, a
body of moderates from al parts of
Ireland, which has just completed a
plan for dominion home rule in the
Prior to adjournment of parliament,
members of this council interviewed
Premier Lloyd George, who told them
that before submitting any scheme
they must be able to assure him of
miffiiient support in Ireland. This
support the council claim to have
obtained and the Mail asserts the
premier will receive a deputation
from the organization next week to
take the initial step m the scheme.
The first thing that will be done, the
newspaper says, will be the creation
of a constituent assembly for Ireland,
Jn which Ulster will be given ' representation.
