FEELING IN IRELAND.
CONDEMNED BY ALL PARTIES.
LONDON, March 11
All parties in Ireland are distinctly unfavourable to Mr Asquith's offer. Ulstermen condemn the limited exclusion. The Nationalists consider that Mr Redmond exceeded the limits of concession. . . The underwriters are charging 10s per cent, against riot. LONDON, March 11. The debate on the second reading of the Home Rule Bill probably will be resumed on March 30. ' An influential section of Nationalists in Ireland dislike the concessions, believing that they would, involve formidable administrative confusions. Many prominent Orangemen are of opinion . that Sir. Edward Carson has gone too far in promising to accept the Government's offer if the time limit should foe eliminated. Lord Dunraven is of opinion that any offer of partial, exclusion is meaningless unless.it is established with: the certainty that the scheme'is workable. He declares that the.representation of Ulster in the Imperial Parliament, the position of the Lord Lieutenant, and the possibility of the Irish Parliament placing Customs barriers artiund the excluded counties are three outstanding difficulties. Commenting on the anti-Russian Press ' campaign in Germany, Lord Cromer urges a settlement of the Irish question, thereby averting the calamity joi civil -war. He adds that the war \ scare engaging the attention of the 1 -German Press renders it highly undesirable that anything 'should occur to prevent the Government from speaking in the councils of Empire in the name of a united people. ; i
