-that he has lost all hope of obtaining
anything for Ireland by. begging from
the English politicians. In a letter to a
meeting of Blnn Felnera at Ennlacorthy,
Sir Thomas writes:

lectual redemption of Ireland and that

rule. It- is expected that he will resign
bis seat In North Wexford and will
stand again aa the exponent of the new
policy.-. There can be little doubt aa to
his victory. Bo far no expression of
' opinion has coma from the parliamen
tarians. John Redmond has denounoed

bae said nothing since Bir Thomaa Ee
rnonde's defection. Blr Thomas has
been elected a member Of the Dublin
central branch of tha Blnn Fein league.
One of the most terrible Indictments
i Of English rule In Ireland Is contained
1 la some flgurea obtained from Mr. Blr
'reli.' the Irish chief aecretary, a few
days ago. In 190 the excess of births
riathk In Rnvland was 11. ner
of population. In Scotland It was
ai nd In Ireland only I f. Mr. Bl
. rei
stated that In 1861 one out of
every wai persons in ireiana was a
lunallo, While in 181 the proportion
bad grown to one In C29, and In 101 to
one in every US. - In the year 1908 the
proportion, of people suffering from
mental derangement In the three king
doms was as follows: England, one fd
146; Scotland, one In 120, and Ireland,
ae In. 178. - t ..
tra Sxplaaatlon Olven.
No explanation la given of these ter
rible figures, but the cause can be
ummed up In one word emigration.
The system which la driving the young
land strong of the country to seek re
fuge In other lands is responsible for
the alarming decline in the birth rate.
' There ia no more prolific people in the
world than the .Irish,-but the country
Is drained of the young men Sad women
of marriageable age, leaving behind
only tha old and ailing. The alarming
Insanity figures are, of course, to be
traced to the same cause. The most
frequent cause of insanity is senile de
cay and the number of old people in
Ireland Is out, Of all proportion to the
population. Another minor cause for
both the high death and Insanity rates
is the homing instinct of the Irish emi
grant. Thousands of Irish men and
women who have failed in the race for
wealth across the seas or who have suc
cumbed to the pitiless conditions In the
new countries, come home to die, and
to swell the statistics which prove the
mlKgovernment of Ireland.
. Irishmen and women abroad have al
ways been the moet generous support
ers of the fight for Irish-freedom, but
It Is to be feared that they have loet
sight of what they might do ia support
ing Irish industries and-thus enabling
the people of Ireland to more effective
ly carry on their own fight The Dub
lin Industrial Council has received two
. letters showing that Irishmen abroad
are waking up to their duty in this re
spect. One was from the Celtic club of
Perth, Western Australia, and asked
for a list of manufacturers who were
willing to ftend their goods to the Aus
tralian colony, declaring that Irishmen
in Australia were ready to create a

(By F. X Cullen, Staff Correspondent)
Dublin, Ang. IT. The recent revolt ot
tha Royal Irish Constabulary In Belfast
and tha sympathy with thefrautlneers
whioh waa displayed by tha members of
tha force all ever Ireland la tha most
serious blow that haa been struck at
British rule for many a long day. It
hag long'toeen tha boast of tha official
olassea that the R. I. C waa tha finest
police force In tha world ana, In many
ways the boast was fully Justified. Tha
men are a splendidly drilled and organ
ised body, of high intelligence, and they
did their duty, which meant obeying
Castle orders, with a dogged determina
tion, no matter how unpleasant that
duty waa Now. however. It Is evident
that they have begun to think for them
eelves snd that they are no longer to be
depended on as the docile Instruments
of English misrule.
The revolt in Belfast was due to local
conditions. The men were overworked
and put to extra expense which they
had to meat out of their own pockets,
but the really significant part of the
situation waa the telegrams of sympa
thy received from practically every con
stabulary barracks in Ireland. 'Uon't
forget that we are all Irishmen," waa
tha text of one message while another
from Athenry ran, X3od help tha gras-
lera If we have to Join Ton in refusing
- Aathoxttloa in Vanle.
The panlo Into which tha mutiny
tnrew uie authorities waa ludicrous.
It must be remembered that the R. I. C
is a military force and that the action
or tne neirast eonstaoiea waa rank mu
tiny. The only proper course from a
military point of view would have been
to oashler everv man who took Dart In
the demonstration at once, or at the
very least to transfer them all to Iso
lated country stations where they would
have had leisure to reflect on the dan
ger of defying discipline. Instead the
weak men who are now In control at
Dublin Castle temporised and the situa
tion Of oourse grew worse. Then In
their panlo they poured 10,000 troops,
with Maxim . guns and heavy artillery
Into Belfast and four battleships and
two cruisers were actually ordered to
anchor In the harbor to overawe about
too rebellious constables. This, be It
remembered. In the stronghold of Irish
Orangelam and loyalty.
There Is no doubt that the grievances
of the men were real and that the gov
erning olaaa of England has been re
sponsible for this most stupid of its
blunders In alienating the force on
which It relied to keep Ireland In sub
jection. After 10 years' service a con
stable. If hla record Is unblemlahed, may

other end of Ireland to do special duty

popular greater, or keeping men who are

He Is at all times exposed to the penal
ties of belonging to an unpopular ser
vice and his duties are often fraught
with danger. . '
, Are TJadraaM.
A striking IIkM on the cay of the
R. L C. Is thrown by some figures Jut
fiuhlished on the cost of the police foroe
n various cities In the United King
dom. Dublin has a municipal police
foroe and the coat of the police there
la IS cents for every tt rental value
of property In the city. ' In Belfast,
which , Is policed by the R. t C, the
cost Is 1 cents. The number of police
Is about the same in the two cities and
the rateable value In Dublin is slightly
higher, Dublin, by the way, pays more
for her boltce .nan any oily In the
ktngnom. The police force ousts every
Duhlin clttien 13.08 a head per annum
while Iomlon comes next with a charge
of 11. a head Other Knglleh cities
range from 10 cents to 11 a head.
'Sir Anthony MacDonneU, the perma
nent nmler secretary for Ireland, has
been trying: to repeat In tha case of the
antl-gr axing war the tactlca by which
he compromised the town tenants' fight
but ha haa been unsuccessful. He vis
ited Bslllntubber a few days ago and
proposed to the parish priest that he
should give a guarantee from the local
branch of the United Irish League that
cattle driving in the district should
stop. Sir Anthony promised in return
for this guarantee to withdraw the
large special foroe of police which was
guarding the erasing ranches, and to
see that the lands In question were
among the first to be derided. The local
branch of the league refused to treat
with Sir Anthony and paaaed resolutions
In favor of continuing the agitation un
til the grazing system waa totally abol
ished in Ireland. - . ,

' The Inconsistency of the government
Is almost oomlo. While It Is protesting
ita friendship for the Irish people at
Westminster and while one of its chief
officials Is trying to treat With what It
must regard aa an illegal organisation
at Balllntubber, It has been putting the
Infamous coercion act into operation at
Bella In North RoscomUon. A meeting
to discuss the grsalng question which
was called there waa proclaimed under
the crimes act and a large force of po
lios sent to break It up. The word
was passed around, however, and the
meeting was held at another place while
the police enjoyed themselves watching
bullocks graalng on the landa which the
people were demanding for cultivation.
It Is Interesting aa a sidelight en the
new spirit among the police that they
have recently contrived to secure false
Information in the south and west when
a oattle-dTiving or a meeting of . this
character was contemplated. . ,

Antiquarians In Ireland are much In
terested In recent discoveries of Ogham
stones In the north and west. Fully
too of these stones have now been
brought to light They are covered with
writing In characters which have not
yet been deciphered, but antiquarians
are agreed that they are of pre-Chrta-tlan
and probably of pre-Roman origin.
The generally accepted theory la that
they are a rello of MUealan times in
Ireland and that they were brought to
Ireland from the east la r.ivnt and
Bpaln, by our MUealan ancestors. The
letters In thla strange writing are rep
resented by little groups of straight
