Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 17, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LETTIBRIDGE OAILY HERALD WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17,1918 PREPARE TO RESIST CONSCRIPTION ACT The Home Rule Bill Should Win in The House of i' Lords London, Apr. 17.-While NaMonal-1st Ireland is malting plnns lor resistance to the enforcement of conscription In their country, the rest of the United Kingdom is more interested in the Home Rule bill which George XI-coll Barnes, Labor member of the war cabinet without portfolio, announced in the house of commons the government would introduce and pass or fall In the attempt. .A committee consisting of such former anti-home rulers as Walter Hume Long. J. Austen Chamberlain and A. W. Samuels, solicitor-general for Ireland, with Mr. Barnes, which has been engaged in drafting the bill, held a second meeting yesterday and reported it had made rapid progress. The home rule bill, it is understood, would take the form of a measure amending the government or Ireland act, which passed just before the out- DOCTOR GAVE THIS RUN-DOWN WOMAN VINOL She Got Well-Hor Nwrrousaett Disappeared Flint, Mich.-"I keep house Cot my family of ate and got into a generally run-down condition.

General opinion favors a federal measure which could be made applicable to Scotland, Wales and England. Several motions suggesting the" introduction of a federal system already have appeared in the house of commons while a large majority of those unionists who have become converts tc home rule also favor that system. Never, on the at any rate, lias Ireland had such a good chance of getting a, form of self-government. At a meeting of the I'nionist war committee which was called to consider the matter but which adjourned untU today without reaching a decision, several speakers urged that every possible effort should be made, to secure a horn? rule settlement, even at the cost ot cherished principles. With all the Liberals, Laborites, Nationalists and aslarge part of the Unionists supporting the bill, it should have an easy passage in the house of commons: What the house of lords. those- old enemies of home rule, will do is uncertain, but with two termer anti-home rulers. Earl Ourzon and Viscount Mllner, as members of the government, supporting" it, the opposition is likely to be less strenuous than on former 'occasions, when the commons sent such a measure to the upper house. The Irish Nationalist members of parliament, having fought conscription to the last in the house of commons, are leaving for Dublin to formulate plans for resisting it.

The haekbonc of the Finnish revolution seems to. be broken; while the Red Guards may continue to hold Vlborg, and the Karalen front for some weeks, their eventual defeat is considered certain. The White Guards, continue to. proceed relentlessly against prisoners. All Russians are immediately shot as are also the Red Guard leaders.

Walsh, archbishop and primate of Dublin, in a public letter, refers to the many vague declarations now flooding the country regarding conscription in Ireland, but affording no intelligible intention of what it is advisable to do.

The only conscription that should be contemplates* hs declared would be that framed and passed by ah Irish parliament.
