H we pursue the story, of good deeds performed with the impelling force ot that humane spirit which exalts a people, we may trace It in the spirit behind the activ! "ties of the Nurslng'Mission, with the assistance it obtained in the coopera- tiop. of the citizens to bring cheer where It was most needed: We may allude to lhe Joy that was spread iu most appealing ot all iqstilutiocs in the city, the Children's Shelter, the home of theVnocent and helpless vic- tims, of circumstances. 'Here is the essence'of that rich and greit recompense, as ye have done' it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." There is apdn the brightness which was brought Into the lives of the orphans ot [hose who fell In the high- est duly men are called to do.. These are only part of tte tale that might ,be told c'f.the rich generosity, the aplendid spirit, that deep loach of humanity, which gain in the considera- tion. It is good fonus to dwell on these things. They are the reverse of the medal in the tales of profiteer- Ing and other sordid records which, alaci for the world we live In, have been too much to the fore In recent time's. We can take courage from what we have witnessed in the Christmas activ- ities here thai we are not all torditl and selfish.

From many a hear JTHE NEW I IRISH BILL To pass Judgment ou the new Irish Bill, broufht forward by Premier Uoyi George, at long distant-..- rango would be a mistake. The genome pro- posed will not admit of a general fur-, vey so far us its principles are cor.- j ce-rned. In respect to Ireluud, jsny." thine which embraces a scheir.e of autonomy cannot be viewed as V-e have been Iccustomed to vlovr the Home Hule scheme as exemplified in the provinces of Canada. The prcullar psychology of its geographical position In regard to Great Britain, its economic problems, and the-divi- sion of the isjlnd into two typls of people diametrically opposed in their religious. views are matters which enter'deeply into the problem. Above all these the particular strategic posi- tion of Ireland in its situation to Great Britain calls for a consideration which Is not applicable to the over- seas Dominions when It comes down lo a comparison of the degree of autonomy ttiese latter enjoy. fn the scheme of autonomy the new Hands and Choirs Furnish Fine Insti- tute Annual Meeting Irish fell! proposes theie are certain limitations. is not, ns it ap- pears, full, fiscal autonomy. This is one of the difficulties to be en- countered in endeavoring to find a solution to the IrisU question ac- ceptable to all the Irish. There Is to be considered the fear expressed by Ulster that, in the event ot author- ity over Customs being placed in the hands of''an Irish Parliament, fias- growing in Ireland might become a parly qoostlon to the extent of Im- posing duties on all foreign flux. This contends would hurt the great linen maunfacture for which it has become famous. iu that the sources of supply .of the raw material would be curtailed, with a crippling or paralysing of its staple industry. The arrangement as to two separate legislatures has an appealing appear- ances to those outside Ireland, but It does net appear to be one which will meet with the sentiment ot the whole Irish people, in the fate the proposal mel .when it was discussed in the famous Irish Convention, which may he 'said-to hive ended iap smoke so far as mutual understanding.Was come to between the South of Ire- land. In this regard the1 blame is placed ris Ihe attitude of Ulster, as divulged, by the proceedings of the Convention. The Nationalist pro- posal that Ulster should be offered a proportion of 40 per cent, in the Lower House, hy the addition of nominated elected members, was rejected by Ulster on the pretext, as It ii IFrom OUf, Own CAHDSTOX.
