Irish Leader Communicates
With Lloyd George.
Notice Served In House of Lords
That Negotiations Promise to
Last Many Weeks.
LONDON, July 27. (By the Asso
i elated Press.) A meeting of all avail
'able members of the Irish republican
cabinet today save further prolonged
discussion to the British government's
proposals relative to an Irish settle
ment, but apparently reached no de
cision. A communication from Eamonn de
Valera was reported to have reached
the British premier, probably seeking
further elucidation on some doubtful
points in the proposals.
Another significant incident was
the postponement by General Jan C.
Smuts of his departure for South
Africa until August 5, which was
taken to imply the belief that his
services as mkdiator again may be
Slow Negotiations Forecait
Even more interesting, however,
was the speech of Lord Birkenhead,
lord high chancellor, in the house of
lords, intimating that the government
anticipated that the negotiations
might last for weeks and inviting the
parliament and the country to have
patience with the difficulties De
Valera and his colleagues may be ex
periencing in Dublin. He reproved re
bellious unionist, in the coalition who
denounced the government's policy as
ehameful and humiliating.
The lord chancellor probably had
these unionists in mind when he
added that in the event of an Irish
settlement being reached, and parlia
ment refusing to accept it, the gov
ernment would consider going to the
country for its approval. Like Mr.
Chamberlain in the house of com
mons yesterday. Lord Birkenhead
took an optimistic view of the nego
tiations. There is a growing belief in Dublin
that De Valera was waiting for re
lease of the remainder of the mem
bers of the Dail Eireann before
taking a decisive step.
Four LeATlalatorea Hinted.
The possibility that four legisla
tures may be established in Ireland
one each in the provinces of Ulster.
Munster, Connaught and Leinster
under a central national parliament,
was hinted at this morning by
Sketch, which said:
"It need not be assumed, as is done
In some quarters, that under unifica
tipn there would be only two govern
ing authorities under a federal Irish
parliament. It has been almost over
looked that there . are four great
provinces in Ireland, each with an
historical individuality."
In relation to Sketch's information,
the statement was made somewhat
disconnectedly, that subject to a sat
isfactory solution of the Irish unifica
tion problem, Eamonn de Valera has
intimated that he would not renew
the campaign for an independent Irish
republic, and also that he would not
seek to raise an army or navy, or
claim the right to enter into rela
tions with foreign powers except to
the same extent as these privileges
were enjoyed by the self-governing
dominions of the British empire.
De Valera Cabinet Said to Await
Communication From Ulster.
DUBLIN. July 27. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Eamonn de Valera, the
Irish republican leader, and his col
leagues have not yet found a basis
for the proposed conference with the
British government on the Irish ques
tion in London, but were continuing
to search for a common ground on
which the contending parties could
meet, it was stated in a well-informed
quarter here today.
A full meeting of the Irish repub
lican cabinet, lasting all this after
noon, discussed the proposals, but
reached no decision.
It was understood the cabinet was
awaiting a communication from Ulster.

"It has been brought to the knowl

the government of the United States

American government and the con

Ttollers and Purse Seiners "Who
Operate Without License Are
Subject to Arrest.
ASTORIA, Or., July 27. (Special.)
Every troller and every purse
seiner who brings salmon into the
Columbia river, and who is not oper
ating under an Oregon license, is to
be arrested and prosecuted by the
state fisheries department. This was
announced at a conference between
Carl D. Shoemaker, state fish war
den, several of the salmon packers,
and A. W, Xorblad, who has been
appointed to assist the state in the
Attorney-General Van Winkle had
informed the fish warden that under
the decision of the supreme court in
the case of the Union Fishermen's
Packing company against Shoemaker,
"when the questions of the location
of the mouth of the river and the
application of the compact act were
involved, the purse seiners who
operated outside the mouth of the
river were not within the jurisdic
tion of the fisheries' compact. They
were "outlaws." so far as Oregon is
concerned, and accordingly were
amenable to the Oregon laws if they
attempted to bring their catches into
the state.
It was said that only two of the
operators of purse seines had Oregon
licenses and the others will be sub
ject to arrest under the instructions
issued to the state, officers. The
state further contended that few, if
any, of these purse seiners would be
able to qualify for Oregon licenses,
as they had not been "residents of
the state for more than a year," as
the law required, and in addition
some of them, at least, were not
even citizens of the country.
The state legal department also an
nounced it would take immediate
steps to have the temporary injunc
tion issued by Judge Eakin a few
days ago, restraining the state fish
eries department from interfering
with the purse seiners in "delivering
fish during the Sunday closing
periods, set for hearing at the earliest
possible moment.
There are four more Sundays In
this fishing season, and the state
will make an effort to have this tem
porary injunction dissolved, so the
purse seiners cannot operate on those
four Sundays.

WASHINGTON. D. C, July 27. The

President Harding: today that the cam

message being: delivered in person by
Gilbert Bettman, chairman of the na
tional legislative committee of the
Later Mr. Bettman handed a dec
laration of similar import to Secreta

General Daugherty.
"It is our purpose to show the ad

statement later, "that tSe demand for
an adjustment of compensation will
not and cannot be downed. It is based
on simple justice. The American Le

Note Is Sent Soviet Russia by
Secretary Hughes.
Government to Halt Measures for
Helping Destitute Until Amer
icans Are Freed.
"WASHINGTON, D. C. July 27.
Formal demand for release of Amer
ican prisoners - in Hussia has - been
made on the soviet authorities by
Secretary Hughes. The state depart
ment was advised today that the
communication had been handed to
the soviet representative at Keval
yesterday by Consul Albrecht.
The text of the curt communication
dispatched July 25 has not been made
public. It was understood, however,
to be a brief insistence that the
Americans be released before there
can be any thought of better rela
tions between the United States and
Russia. This action was taken in
the name of humanity and because
all efforts to obtain the release of
the Americans, made through Dr.
Nansen of the Red Cross, have failed.-
What course will be taken by the
United States if the soviet authori
ties ignore or refuse to accede to the
demand was not indicated.
The dispatch of-the communioation
was timed so it would reach the Rus
sians approximately simultaneously
with the message sent by Secretary
Hoover in response to the appeal
made by Maxim Gorky. The state de
partment's message was regarded of
ficially as wholly independent of the
Hoover-Gorky correspondence.
There are now held as prisoners in
Russia eight or ten Americans. A
larger number are believed to be
detained within the borders of Russia,
some of whom are restricted to lim
ited areas.
More Than Score of Americans
Held Prisoner in Russia.
. RIGA, Letvia, July 27. (By the As
sociated Press.) An official demand
by Secretary of State Hughes for the
release of the American prisoners in
Russia was handed by- Consul Al
brecht to Leonid Stark, the bolshevik
minister here, last night.
Maxim Gorky, it was learned today,
has tejegraphed to John Miller, the
Riga representative of the American
relief administration, saying that the
communication of Herbert Hoover, as
head of the relief administration, with
regard to American relief for the ill
and starving of Russia may tre an
swered in detail.
The release of the Americans held
prisoner in Russia was laid down by
Secretary Hoover in his recent cable
message to Gorky as the prime condi
tion upon which American relief
measures for Russia would be taken
The demand of Secretary Hughes
"The American government is ad
vised that, despite the repeated ef
forts of Dr. Nansen On its behalf to
obtain the release of the American
prisoners in Russia, they are still held
in a most serious plight.
"In the name of humanity, the
American government demands of the
soviet authorities that American pris
oners be at once released. It mani
festly is impossible for the American
authorities to countenance measures
for relief of the distress in Russia
while our citizens are detained."
More than a-"score of Americans
still are being held prisoner in soviet
Russia, according to the latest news
received by the state department in
Washington from that country. Prin
cipal among them are Mrs. Marguerite
B. Harrison of Baltimore, a newspa

cial.) The Seattle Bar association
has fied a complaint with the state
board of bar examiners for the dis
barment of Hulet M. Wells, ex-president

council. The complaint was filed
with the clerk of the supreme court

set "for October 3 in the county-city

The indictments charged him and
other persons with conspiracy to op

by a jury February 21, 1918, and later
was sentenced to serve two years in
