.lv. MR CHURCHILL'S OFFfiR •bEBATE IN THE COMMONS London. April 29.
;g, Many Liberals are indignant at Mr offer, which is interpreted * fcoj mean the exclusion of Ulster until I th> United Kingdom is federaliseJ. , I iThe " Ohromole" says that the offer has oaused dismay, and has more HJMhan a air of weakness than of mag I^Pnanimity The "Westminster Gazette" wel comes the offer.
