London. David Lloyd George, the
British prime minister, made tha Bold
est stroke ot his career by eotrpitsg
hoipe rule for Ireland with tha eon
ecrlption of Irishmen.
This unexpected announcement waa
made in an address by the premier In
tha house of commons, la presenting
the near eonscriptloa bill to parlia
ment Tbe premier said that tha man-power
act would be extended to Ireland
under the same eonditiona aa to Great
Britain and that a measure ot self
government tor Ireland would be In
troduced. The first impression waa skepticism ,
aa to whether the war cabinet eould .
frame a measure which would stand
that test and the tear that the country
might be plunged again into the old
fury of tha Irish quarrel while fight
ing for its life against enemies out
side its walla. , ,
The atmosphere ot tha house of
commons did not foreshadow success.
From his first sentence on Ireland,
the premier was assailed with what
Renter's correspondent describee aa
"running, hostile comment front tha
Irish benehee."
