'Lord Hugh Cecil, in a letter to the Press, says the difficulty in the way of a conference is insuperable, j He draws an/'arialpgy between General;;Botha's: action/ in South Africa and possible happenings in Ireland} as creating two centres of sovereignty. Nobody can deny that the deportations are altogether, indefensible, and. nobody can be blind to the outrage and scandal of the infliction of perpetual exile by} retrospective enactment: y True /.sovereignty lies with the South African' Parliament and jfieneral Botha, not with the British Crown. - Such .will be the consequences of Home: Rule.-.-• :•■■:■• -•■'•■••-.,
