THE EXCLUSION PROPOSALS.
LONDON, March 13
The "Tablet" says that Ireland has no use for a coerced, conquered Ulster which would become an Irish Alsace. It would .be .impossible to control events at the end of the -six years' term. The Nationalists should make a virtue of necessity.
Mr O'Connor declares that Ireland never would consent to go into the wilderness for another generation. The idea of temporary exclusion wae equivalent to the Bill's provisions regarding reserved services. Excluded counties must automatically come under the jurisdiction of the new Parliament after a transition period.
Mr Austen Chamberlain, in a speech at West Birmingham, gave Mr Asquith credit for anxiety to prevent calamities, but said the Prime Minister could not expect Ulster to disband the organisation and forsake the method by which alone it had been able to secure a hearing. If the scheme passed into law, exclusion would be the main issue at future elections. Every dish would be Irish stew, and scalding hot at that.
