its Inception In 1887. It is to be hoped
that 'If our war heroes are made to

New York, Jan. $. The ' Pacific
coast probably will be represented at
Dublin, Jan. 3. Eamonn De Val
era's speeches in America with regard
to the part played by Irish soldiers
ln the war have been read in Ireland
with feme surprise, and it is pointed
out here that in this matter Mr. De
Valera's sentiments differ a good deal
from those of his supporters. Cap
tain M'Walter, a Dublin physician and
member of ' the Dublin Municipal
Council, 'who served throughout the
war ln the Army Medical Corps,
writes aa follows in the Dublin Press:
"All the ex-service men, and there
are over 40,000 of us, were pleased to
find Mr. De Valera assuring his Amer
ican audience that we fought for a
principle and that Irishmen in the
earlier days of the war rushed to the
ranks in overwhelming numbers. But
whilst Mr. De Valera rightly inter
prets our position to the Americans
his followers and supporters ln Dub
lin never cease to pour contumely on
Irish soldiers and to heap every in
dignity possible upon them.
"Returned soldiers are treated is
lpers rather than as heroes. Men
who. had not the manliness to fight
either in the army or in the rebellion
now find courage to persecute by
every means in their power thOBe
army or exarmy men whom De Val
era lauds, and even carry their vin-
dicttveness against every man who
