' : Washington, May 14.-Pessimistic articles on tho political situation In AuBtria-Hungary are appearing in Austrian �newspapers, according to a dispatch from Switzerland. "The new Hungarian cabinet recoh-instituted by Dr. Wekerle la considered 'as a)temporary expedient," says the Dispatch, "being rather unpopular, they: hope, at the utmost, that Dr. Wekerlo wiU.succ^od^lu vegetating tor a wWle., -He will be the victim of many, attack?

It is probablo l)iat tbo dissolution..of parargo to 1)0 placed on passenger traffic in Ireland. "What is clearly Intended," It says, "i.s the enforcement of conscription at tho point of the sword. It is perfectly well known and best ot all to tho government, that this can only bo done at ihs cost of bloodshed-extensive bloodshed. Tho toll of blood must; he taken wherever tlio toll of men is taken; that is In every village of Nationalist Ireland. "Do not Irishmen i-ealize what thi;! moans-first, absolute destruction or hope of any friendly solution of tho constitutional relations of the two count^Jcs; second, sowing a rlcli ci-op of alienation and hute. "Of course, there are people both bore and In Ireland to whom a reversion to the old method of coercion would ho clieuply boii,e;lit at the cost of a few lives and laceration once more of the body and soul ot Ireland." Finally, it demands that ''clearjy, ^ by all and every means, the gov'ern-meut should be constrained, or if it cannot he restrained, then be got ild ot." T. P. O'Connor's Views. .WaHhingtoii, .May 1-I.^T. P. O'Connor, 'the Irish .Nationalist leadef, in an address iiero Mast nigiit at 11 meeting attondejl by many membbrs of congress declared thathis party is inflexibly convinced of the justness o� tho allied cause and would press for a vigorous prosecution ot the war until Germany had been completely defeated. . Jlr. O'Connor explained that his criticism of the Irish conscription act was not inspired by any hostility to the British people, but resulted from his belief that it would weaken , and not strengthen Oreat Britain in cho conduct ot the war. With the establishment of an jrish parliament,, he believed that there would be a chango In sentiment in Ireland and that this and not conscription was the best means of increasing the flow oflrfsli soldiers to the froaf. A Federal Scheme. > London, May 14.-The speech on Sunday in which George Nicol Barnes, Labor member tor the w;\r cabinet advocated a Federal scheme ot Home Rule for the United Kingdom Has at-tractbd^nnich attention in political'* quarters here and in Ireland. The lobbyists at Westminster say the utterance was "a trial baloon" to tost the country's opinion and declare that although the government baa not; decided dpfinitely on a Federal acheme, individual members' of the cabinet, including- Premier Lloyd-George, are inclining more and mora to such a solution of the Irish problem. This is duo partly, It Is sa|d, i because they believe the scheme affords the only chance of winning Ulster to Homo Rule. Tho suggestion however, is rejegted' absolutely in Ireland, according to despatches from Dublin, wliero it la said Mr. Bai'nes' speocli was received with angry conlompt. It is-declared, that if the Irish parliamentary viarty^ accepts such a scheme it would be re* pudiated utterly by the�Irish people. Therq ,is, however,'Uot the' Sllghteat probabfilty of.,tho Irish jn^mbera of parllameut giving the least attention to such a^propQsal.  On the ot~lier hand, it Is said, the Northern Unionists will accept such a solution U Ulster � 'treated as a separate state under it. On - War Footing. London, May 11.-(Toronto , Mail and Empire.)-"Lord Field ?fars,hal French la now in supreme control In Ireland." the Dublin correspondent ot the Daily News telegraphs. "Kxev-cl^ng In practice those powers which have always been held by a vice roy-. al in theory, ho will have full authority In (luestlons' relating to the nation-al- defense and Intorna^admlnlstratlon and wllKput the country for the first time on what may be described as a; war tooting."
