MR ASQUITH'S PROPOSALS.

NEWSPAPER COMMENT.

(Per Press Association—Copyright)

LONDON, March 10

The "Times," in a leading article, .says: "Mr Asquith's proposals show a profound miscalculation of the situation. This morkery of an offer at the eleventh hour can make no favourable impression."

The " Standard" describes ,the proposals as being grossly objectionable.

The "Evening News" says that this is the final attempt at a peaceful settlement.

The "Daily News" says that the Nationalists and the greater number of Liberals are against compromise and declare that it is impossible to accede to Sir Edward Carson's request that Ulster should be excluded until a fresh Act had been passed, as that would 1 allow the habit of local government to grow.ur, in Ulster and with vested interests it would become difficult for the Imperial Parliament to resist the claim for special treatment.
