SINN FEIN DENOUNCED.
LONDON, April 4
■The Rt. Hon. J. I. Macpherson, Chief Secretary for Ireland, in the House of Commons, said the political unrest in Ireland had not abated, and was accompanied by the. cruellest outrages. He was determined to support the Constabulary and military to protect law-abiding citizens against the terrorists and assassins from whom one of the most prosperous countries in the world must be freed. Sinn Feinism menaced progress, alienated sympathy, produced and maintained the deadlock, and stifled industries an social development . The application of self-deter-mination would mean the establishment of a Sinn Fein Republic in its rankest form. The present conditions prevented the Government from exploring all practical paths in order to secure a generous settlement of problems which were never more pressing.
