Stewart IS LONDON, March 39,-The London Times today devotes a three-column editorial to the Irish altuation, besldea printing long letters from the Karl ot Dunraven, president of the Irish Reform Association, and Sir Moraca Plunkett, chairman of tho Dublin convention, all of which lay stress on the serious situation and makes suc-gestions for changes in the Irish bill which is to come up before parliament today, which tho writers believe wlU help in a eettlement of the controversy. , 'Both in respect of the circum.-stances and the consequencas Which it iiiay entail, the occasion Is grave l)eyond measure," says tho Times, "Wo can remember no emergency in domestic politics that has surpassed or even equalled in significance the decision with which the house of Ci'Vinnons is now confronted." Tlie Times then points out that it has held that "while the Irish prob-loni is essentially one of British concern, in which foreigners have no title to interfere, unrest in Ireland affects to a disadvantage many "aspects of homo and foreign policy." rtoviewing the efforts the Iiondon Times has made to secure a settlement of tlie trouble, the writer considers the defects in the bill remedial, and says: Ulster Is Key "One indispensable amendment Is that tlie area of tho northern parliament should embrace the whole of the nine counties of I'lster." Largely upon this question, it says, rest the ultimate stability of tho new Irish constitution and the hope of evolving peace from the discord. 'Phe newspaper also advocates giving the .ioint council of Ireland wore definite authority and reprebentatloB on it to persons other than pledged extremists. Another of tho newspaper's suggestions i.s that tho final pow- ftra -withheld by the present bill should be conferred upon the council of Ireland. Ix)rd Dunraven, who says a majorltj-of tho people in Ireland are so convinced of the fraudulent nature ot the bill aa to consider its examination a mere waste of time, also farors the inclusion of tho whole of Ulster in one legislature, while Sir Horace Plunkett, who says: "The state in Ireland is the worst in living memory," declares that the army of occupa-' n cnnpot bo removed becaune tho oiii:' government in Ireland is the mfllta' � authority, "the incompetence of whir.h is being shown daily with tragic proof." LONDON, March :J9.-The g'-areat. crisis in the whole of Irish Tnodorn history is the description applied to tho present nituation by the Dublin correspondent of the Ix>ndon Time-, in reiterating that Ireland is fas. drifting into anarchy. "Tho Irish public views current eventa with profound dismay and aicknesa of heart," he says, "and is amazed and frightened at the government's failure to recognize the facta of tho situation." Public officials, it is said, live under the shadow of murder; some are unable to leave their homes da:ir or night. Murder societies are organised thoroughly and are aware .ot the movements of all officials, who on their part are equally cogttlsant of their dangers. Knowing that the sympathies of the telegraphers in the mate service are largely with the conspiritors, they dare hot uso the wires to transmit official informs tion. Change in Policy LONDON, March 29.-(By Canadian Associated Press)-The Dally Express says that the government is maklus a drastic change in the military control in Ireland by sending over Geu. MacCready, commander of the Metropolitan police, in place of Gen. Shaw. General MacCready is known as a strong "peacemaker" and has vastly Increased powers in Ireland. The general expectation is that there will be a majority In the commons for the second reading of the home rule bill debate which begins today. Most of the papers comment editorially on the prospects of tho measure and on Ireland's condition. The Times' leader runs to three columns, chiefly suggesting amendments to the hill and concluding with the profound conviction that the Irish problem Is soluble by forces of honesty. Justice and good will. The Morning Post can see only one logical and honest course for tha V\\ lonlsts, namely, to demand a repeal of tho existing act and reject the new measure, but the Chronicle and othiar Journals are sympathetic toward tha bill as just and honorabla.
