MR S PENCE'S NOTES.
TO TUB EDITOR. Sir. —Vour special correspondent. Mr Spence, is equally wrong in his geography and his deductions. The north-east (Antrim) of Ireland, where the mines were laid (<>r suppose 1 to he laid), is the Oraive stronghold, and entirely Protestant. °o that instead of a Air O’Gr.uly doing the dastardly act of laying mines to destroy his own* countrymen, they would be laid by Johnstons or Andersens (if at all). Sir Edward Carson, it is_ well known, had an interview with the Kaiser, ( and it’ was from Germany all the arms came that were smuggled into Ireland by the Unionists. I myself saw some ot the guns. etc., and they were all branded with German makers’s names.—l am, etc., K. M. Conroy. November 23. [Air Spence replies thus ; “ The note regarding which niv correspondent complains has had a little too much read into it. The last thing intended by me was to add anything to the differences between North' and South of Ireland. What .1 wished to emphasise was that the story should not have been given out in its unsifted form, and that Irishmen had no need to tako it seriously. As for the geography, the messages indicated the localities ot the mines as Malin Head and Torv Island; that is the coast of Donegal,'not Antrim, as my lorrespondent states." —Eel. E.H.J
