A majority of the 'committee sup- ported Herr Von. Payer in the opinion that Dr. Liebknecht had forfeited par- liamentary immunity. Herr Von Payer gave tlie following account of the ar- rest: "Oh May 1st Dr. Liebknecht partici- pated in peace demonstration at Potts- darnmer- Platz. The population be- came excited and shouted, 'Down with 'Down with the Kaiser.' Dr. Liebknecht had arranged the entire tragedies of Irish history. The ol!

It is true that grave responsibility for these events in Dublin rests upon the lead- ers of that movement. These things have to be discussed at the pro- per time. "It is true that Ireland has been shocked and horrified by the sories of military executions by military tribu- nals In Dublin. These things have in the face of incessant and ve- hement protests of Irish leaders and these protests will be pressed con- tinually and strongly until the un- checked control of tho military au- thorities in Ireland is abolished. But it is also true that, in spite of bitter provocations, the people of Ireland have had no hesitation in condemning the rising in Dublin ;w a dangerous blow at the heart and hopes of Ire- land. "On the morrow of this tragedy we feel called upon co make a solemn ap- peal to the people of Ireland to .draw the conclusions which these events force upon them. We must leave no misunderstanding in their minds as to our convictions and our resolves. Either Ireland is to be given over to unsuccessful revolution and anarchy, or the constitutional movement is to have full support of the Irish people and go on until it has completed its work."

The order is necessary owing to the fact that Lhtj Hue is not yet ballasted. How- ever, the statement of Supt. Cotter- ell the other day that ballasting will start immediately means .that by the end of June the line will be-in shape for all kinds of traffic after-which it will be no longer necessary to secure an order from the railway commis- sioners to keep the line open. As this part of the country has thous- ands of bushels of grain yet to ship the board's order means that the far- mers will have the immediate help of the railway in getting what remains of their crop to market without de- lay.
