I ONCE BLOOD IS I SHED." ———— 0- ——— BONAR LAW'S WARN- ING. MOMENTOUS DEBATE ON HOME RULE. I Majority of 78. The House of Commons divided on Wed- nesday night on the Opposition amendment to the Address: That thi& House humbly represents that it would be disastrous to proceed further with the Government of Ireland Bill until it has been submitted to the judgment- of the people. The result was » Aga-inst th-e 333 For the amendment 255 Majority a,?,?nst 78 I ?!11 I -1 nruugilJUv tne tone 01 t-ne speecnes were conciliatory, and the features of the debate were the great speeches of Mr. Bonar Law and Sir Edward Carson. It was one of Sir Edward Carson's finest Parliamentary ef- forts and mW<e a, profound impression on the House. He relentlessly exposed the tactics of the Government, and amongst his most pungent sentences were:- I cannot help thinking that what the Government are doing is manoeuvring for position. The Nationalists have never wanted the affections of Ulster; they have only wanted hei taxes. If the Government, suggestions compel Ulster to go under a Dublin Parliament, then, regardless of personal consequences, I would go with the people of Ulster to the eiii -i their policy of resistance. Mr. John Redmond, who replied, told again and again his desire for an amicable settlement. He accepted absolutely the new situation, nnd stated that he would say and do nothing to make it more difficult. But although, he said, he desired in advance to shut the door on no suggestion that might be made, ne gave no hint of proposals for a z-olutio-i. "SHALL SUBMIT PROPOSALS." Mr. Lloyd George, who said the last word for the Government, said they were convinced that to place cut and dried pro- posals on the table at the present time would not promote peace, but would hinder it. But now that they wesre there together something might issue that might in itself promote a settlement. "We shall submit proposals on our own responsibility," he added, "bnt the responsibility for accepting or rejecting them will rest on the Unionists opposite." Mr. Bonar La.w, wflio wound up the de- bate, showed the entire alteration in the situation. Ulster, he said, had never claimed to veto Home Rule far Leland. They had never sa,ï,d they would resist by force the right of Nationalist Ireland to govern itself. They had said tihey would resist the attempt of Nationalist Ireland to govern them. "ONCE BLOOD IB SHED. Once blood is shed in Ulster it. will be too late for conciliation," he said. The Prime Minister has power to avoid it: we have not. Still, I do not tliinik he has the right to pass any form of Home Riule with- out a.n appeal to the people. The Govern- ment have allowed themselves to drift into sruch a position that they cannot go back without discredit, and they cannot go for- ward without disaster."
