DeValera Announces'
c-irain's Proposal of
Britain's Proposal of
Dominion Status Not
Dublin, Aug. 17, Eamonn De
Valera, Irish republican leader,
declared today that the Dail
Eireann would not accept the
terms offered by the British gov
ernment, extending to Ireland an
offer of dominion status.
Mr. DeValera made this declara
tion at the second session of the
Bail Eireann, held in the Mansion
House, to take up the question of
the negotiations with Premier
Lloyd-George with regard to a
possible Irish settlement.
Answer Held Final.
"Prom the reports this morning
In tbe British and foreign press,''
laid Mr. DeValera, "thero : terns to
be doubt as to what our attitude is
towards the British proposals.
There seems to be doubt as to
whether what I have said or
whether our letter means accept
ance or rejection.
"There ought to be no doubt In
anybody's mind. We cannot and
will not, on behalf of this nation,
accept these terms.

tamilons. Ireland is offered no
such thing. The statement thai
Ireland was offered a dominion
status contained two falsehoods.
H'lmli Ireland? There is no Ire
land on the terms but two broken
pieces of Ireland.
"What was offered was not

mitted the. dominions had the
right to Becedo and could get out if
they desired. We are told we must
stay in whether we like it or not.
Secession Not Issue.
"We are not claiming the right
to lecede. There cannot be a
luei'.on of secession, but there
has never been union.
"Northern Ireland has regarded
Itself frnm Its own viewpoint, and
In entering negotiations they need
not give up that point of view. I
would be willing to suggest to the
Irish people that they give up a
food deal In order to have Irelund
ble to look into the future with

Mi problems.

Brumfield was questioned by the

traces of nervousness.
Turning to the reporters, Mr.
Neuner said: "Brumfield says

Deer Season
Will Open On
August 20th
What Is expected by sportsmen
to be the biggest deer season for
years will start on the west side
of the Cascade mountains next
Saturday. Many campers and
mountaineers have reported that
animals and tracks have been seen
In such numbers as to Justify the
expectation for a big year, and
local sportsmen are unanimous in
their opinions that such will be
the case.
The season, which began last
year September 1, has been ad
vanced this year a few days and
will start August 20, remaining
open until October 20, for all ter
ritory west of the mountains. In
the second district east of the Cas
cades the dates will run from Sep
tember 1 to October 31.
Much of the hunting will be
done In southern Oregon, where
sportsmen expect to find the deer
most numerous, but reports indi
cate that good shooting will be
found In the SUetz and Tillamook
districts and on the upper Santiam
and Abequa rivers. A number of
parties have already left the city
for southern Oregon and elsewhere
ready to be right among tbe moun
tains when the season opens.
Babe Ruth Hits
45th Home Run
since yesterday has freely admit
ted his identity, still claims he
cannot remember what has trans
pired since the Sunday previous to
the alleged crime. District Attor
ney Oeorge Neuner of Roseburg,
the man to whom Brumfield has
promised to "tell all" met the offi
cers and their prisoner here.
Dr. Brumfield slept soundly last
night In a sleeping car berth and
awoke refreshed. He ate a hearty
breakfast, this being his first meal
In five days.
Savs Mind a Blank.
"My mind is an absolute blank,"
he asserted, speaking; very slowly.
"I do not remember a thing from
the Sunday I had dinner with,
Russell until I was found in Can
ada." After apparently recalling with
difficulty that he has a wife, Dr.
Brumfield asked Sheriff Starmer If
his wife could visit him In Rose
burg Jail. When the sheriff an
swered affirmatively, Brumfield
added: "And my boys, too! I have
three boys, fine chaps, just Ilk
As the train approached Port
land the prisoner was alert, calling
the officers' attention to the Co
lumbia valley scenery. But when
ever reference was made to the
crime with which he Is connected
he would become silent.
Chicago, Aug. 17. Babe Ruth
made his forty-fifth home run of perlence(i
tne season, witn cue umu uu
base, In tbe sixth Inning of to
day's game with Chicago. Wlen
ecke was pitching for Chicago.
"Sunday, July 10," continued
the attorney, you will remember
was the first time he met Russell
and, he says, was the only time. He
probably had seen Russell several
times before but had not actually
met him.
"Brumfield recalled that on
that particular Sunday on which
he visited with his nephew, his
boy spilled a lot of buckshot 011
the ground and ha (Brumfield)
had trouble picking It up. About
chat time he became ill and with
tbe exception he mentioned, he
says he can recall nothing. He
has hazy recollection of some trou
ble at the International boundary
In Blaine."
Asked why he would not permit
Brumfield to be photographed or
Interviewed, Mr. Neuner said It
would be a violation of the physi
cian's orders. If Brumfield needs
medical attention, he will surely
get It, said the district attorney.
Held Incommunicado.
Meanwhile Brumfield Is being
held Incommunicado In Multno
mah county jail.
According to Neuner, Dr. Brum
field was not questioned concern
ing the actual crime, but was per
mitted to talk at random on vari
ous subjects.
The history of his early life was
recounted by the prisoner, and
while telling of his college days,
Dr. Brumfield explained that be M death, snd left an estate on
