„ ,„„. IRISH LAND BILL. Views of Ulster Farmers. A jmeeting of the Executive Council of the Ulster Farmers and Labourers' Union was held in Belfast on Monday for the consideration of the Irish Land Bill. Disappointment was expressed with the provisions of the measure. The prin- cipal points in the Bill to which exception was taken are the provisions for fixing minimum reductions to tenants' prices which have been realised, and for abrogating the right of having a fair rent fixed. The financial arrangements are stated to be of a most unsatisfactory and dan- gerous character both to the tenants and to the Irish funds which are to be impounded. Members of the Union, the official report states, a.re more convinced than ever that no settlement of the land question is possible bv means of any Bill which does not include an element of com- pulsion. General dissatisfaction exists that there is no compulsion whatsoever on the landlords to sell in any circumstances outlined in the Bill, while an attempt has been made to put com- pulsion on the tenant, in certain circumstances, to buy. Altogether it would appear that there was a growing dissatisfaction with the measure, and it is anticipated tbat-a formal pronouncement at the convention of the Ulster Farmers to-morrow week will reveal most serious defects in almost all portions of the Bill. The opinion was expressed that the provisions in regard to labourers' cottages were "nothing but a sham." It is possible that at the conference further objections may be raised to the proposals, but the hope is entertained that both sides will accept the Bill as a basis of a satisfactory settlement of the question, and that such modifications will be secured as will render it a purely remedial measure.
