(By F. X Cullen, Staff Correspondent.)
Dublin, Aug. IT. The recent revolt of
tha Royal Irish Constabulary in Belfast
and? ths sympathy with thapnutineers
which was displayed by the members of
tha force all over Ireland is the most
serious blow that has been a truck at
British rule for many a long day. It
ha longeen the boast of the official
classes that ths B L C was the finest
polios force In tha world ana. In many
ways ths boaat 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 now unpleasant tnat
duty waa- Now. however, It is evident
that they have begun to think for them
selves and that they are no longer to be
deoended on as ths doclla instruments
of English miarule.
The revolt In Belfast was due to local
conditions : The men were overworked

had to meet out of their own Dockets.
but the really significant part of the
situation was the telegrams of sympa
thy received from practically every con
stabulary barracks In Ireland. "Don't
forget that we are ail Irishmen,1' was
tha text of one message while another
from Athenry ran, "God help the graz

The panic into which the mutiny
threw the authorities was ludicrous.
It must be remembered that the R. I. C.
la a military force and that the action
of the Belfast constables was rank mu
tiny. The only proper course from a
military point of view would have been
to cashier every man who' took part 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

Sir Anthony MacDonnell, the perma-'
nent nnfB aecretary - for Ireland, haa
been trying- to repeat in the case of the
anti-graslng war tha tactics by which
he compromised the town tenants' fight
but he has been unsuccessful. He vis
ited Ballintubber a few daya ago and
propoaed to the parish priest that he
should give a guarantee from ths 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 fOrce of police which was
guarding the graslng ranches, and to
aee that the lands In question were
among the first to be devtded. The local
branch of the league refused to treat
with Sir Anthony and paased resolutions
in favor of continuing the agitation un
til the erasing system waa totally abol
ished In Ireland.
