A former resident of Ashburtpn, now settled in the North of, Ireland, writing to a friend in this town, states:— In Ulster, here we are still in the middle of trouble in regard to the Home Rule, question, Donaghadee, like all parts round here (Belfast stronghold) being possessed of a miniature army, J. under- j stand with rifles and ammunition, pre-, pared to resist the Act once it becomes . law and take a stand under the colours | of the Provisional Govpvnnicaii, sis ur- ■ ranged by Sir Edward Carson and his ■ colleagues. Sorry to say that Im, afraid the final end will be trouble (red , trouble) if things go on as they are., Most of the 1 people you meet are carrying arms of one kind or another. Or course now the Iting has issued a proclamation re the importation of arms into Ireland (after, the real Unionist crowd have practically all they need),. Customs officers are on the alert everywhere (two in Donaghadee), and everyone landing from a "foreign (Scotland or England) port has- his luggage inspected for dangerous weapons (including swords). ' At.the present,time you would be unable to walk off the Liverpool or Fleetwood boat with a, rifle, ! even if it were a sporting gtin, without it being confiscated by the 'Excise officers. Pretty rough treatment for the poor Irish."
