AN EXPOSITION OF HOME RULE.
■♦ •"■■«■ In Mr Labouohere's paper, "Truth" of April 18, tho following occurs :— 11 Either we shsll get a majority In favor of Home Rale at the noxt general eleotlon, or we aball not, and it moat be dlstlcotly anderatood by the electorate that Home Rule does not mean Looal Self-Govern* ment It means * looal Parliament for Ireland, paramount In all matters that are not reserved from it, and with an Executive dep3ndent alone upon that Parliament. The Irish members will sit and vote iu the Imperial Parliament on ncn-reaerved matters, and this Parliament will be supreme In the sense that the local Parliament, being created by Itf can be swept away by It. Bat Bills that have pa asedrthe looal Parliament, and whloh have I received the aeaeot of the Executive, will become Uir, without the assent of the Imperial Parliament." Agitators for Home Rule In the oolonles say they want fot Ireland jast what the oolonles have, bat Mr Labouohere's interpretation of Home Rale is Bomsthlng very different. Aboord ing to him Ireland wanta a groat deal more ; It wants to be altogether at liberty to pass what lawji It llkea without reference to the Imperial Government, and, in addition, to have representation in the Parliament of the Empire. No oolony bas tbia and no colony desires it.
