UNIONIST CONFERENCE.

[Per Press Association.—Copyright.]

He denied the statement that Givat Britain had surrendered territory in Sinm and Madagascar.

The Conference passed resolutions in favor of a substantial increase of the army, a Royal residence for Ireland, and remedial measures against foreign sugar and shipping bounties.
