The expelled Irish members hare almost
unanimously decided to remain in their
plates and offer every resistance which
tbe forms of the bouse of commons will
permit to the passage of the coercion anil
arms bill. In this resolution I fully con
cur. The result or renewed exertion of
the party since the coup d'etat and option
of gagging resolution has been so far most
encouraging. .Moreover it 'would be
scarcely fair of me to leave my party to
face the up hill work entailed unon them.

having adopted rules of coercion and In
timidation against our people and their
representing es in parliament, and having
practically attempted to drive both one
and the other outside the limits of tbe
constitution bv tbeuseof unconstitutional
and Illegal means in parliament and in
county, two courses appeared onen to us:
The first, that the Irish members should
retire in a body from the house of com
mons and announce to their constituents
that the constitutional weapon of parlia
mentary representation had been
snatched from their hands and no course
remained to them but sullen acquiescence
or appeal to force In opposition to the
force which had been used against us.
The second and only other alternative
appeared to be that we should steadfastly
labor on, deepening the lines and widen
ing the area olour agitation, appealing to
the great masses of the population of Kiiir-
laiid and Scotland, who are much less
represented in the house of commons
than the masses In Ireland. Anpealing.I
say, against the territorialism and slopoc
racy which dominate in parliament to
the workimrmen and agricultural lahorer
oruritian, who surely have no interest in

Ireland. I have dismissed the first of tho
course from consideration, but the second
alternative presents to us manv elements
or nope in ultimate success. As I have
said, parliament is at present governed
uy iniiuiords, manuracturers aud shop
keepers ol Oreat Iiritain. At election
times springs aro eet in motion by wire
pullers ofthe two political parties, and
tne masses or the electors are driven to
the polling booth to register the decrees I
oi some caucus with place an J power, and
not the good of the peoplo as its. object.
i uuuc opinion in I'.ngiaim is also deliber
ately and systematically perverted.

It will sound the doom of the Fmilisli land

house of commons and radicalism to its
souses. A junction between Fnglisli de
mocracy and Irish nationalism upon the
basis of Ireland's right to make her own
laws, tne overthrsw of territorialism In

prove irresistible. It would terminate
