ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Irish rebellion and its effects still holds the centre ot attention in England. Four of the leaders the rebels Imve been shot. Hundreds of other prisoners have been taken, and Great Britain is to have compulsory service. Voluntary recruiting is pro- gressing very favorably in Canada, and their punishment problem now being dealt with by the government. The rebellion has led to the resig- nation of Augustin Birrell. chief secre- tary for Ireland in the coalition cabi- net It may also lead to the with- drawal of Lord Wimborne. lord lieu- tenant of Ireland. Germany's long awaited reply to the United States note is at last complet- ed and should be on its way to Wash- ington today.

Slay day was the date of these outbursts, in which many were said to have been killed and injured. STATUS OF SHELL COMMITTEE DEFINED Just what is the status of the Cana- dian shell committee?
