diplomatic relations between Eng land and the Vatican were not probable for some yours repudiated the idea that the move in that dituction waa incited by a desire to bring tho papal influence to tbe solution of the Irish problem Ho complained thui the fact of a mans ha Ing a Itiminn Catholic in England made blm the subject of suspicion as a party to Irish agitation which he docjared was an unjust suspicion A llilrrf Question to Answer What is thought will be tho probable outcome of the Irish agitation That is a problem which I cannot at tempt to auawar Since the days of Queen Elizabeth there hns been an Irish quei tlon about which English statesmen have held contrary views The letters of Lord Bacon tnem wlfch opinions as to a solution any which might almosit be an editorial in a newspaper of today Throe centuries ago them was the same difficulty owing to thu mixing up of pol itics and religion Since thak time evory minister who has attempted to solve the Irish problem has fallen into tho same blunder By a mistaken notion of the rwodj of Ireland treating them from the religious utnudpolnt succeeding minis ters have failed to accomplish that which they sought to achieve The present agi tation owes Its snccesii largely to tho fact that those In charge havo steered clear of any distinctly religious question and have confined themselves purely to the polltl enl Issue Xaml In
